Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-10,Lethbridge, Alberta Conserve now, avoid problems    , Energy saving hints for car, home Although Souttaem Albertans are not hard-hit by the «nergy crisis, many people are l^lng for ways to conserve fuel before it becomes absolutely necessary. A pamphlet published by the department of consumer and corporate affairs, consumer credit, has come up with 20 energy saving tips — 10 for home heating, and ten for sensible motoring. Even without the rationing that is being considered in the United States, consumers undoubtedly will find the rising costs of fuel a considerable incentive to conservation. For the home: • Check all registers and grilles for rugs, chairs, tables or drapes that can restrict free air movement. •    Balance the beat distribution to the various rooms in your horo«. according to your needs. (Bedrooms can be kept cooler than living rooms, because you can always add another blanket on cold nights. Game rooms, workshops and kitchens need less heat. Kitchens generate quite a bit of heat on their own.) •    Add a humidifier. This makes a big difference in the comfort level of an area for a given termperature. Extra humidity makes you feel warmer at lower ten^ratures. •    Turn your thermostat down two degrees every other day until you reach the lowest possible comfort level. You might be surprised to find it at 68 degrees or even lower. •    Check quality and amount of insulation in walls and cekUngs and consider insulating air supply ducts. •    Check and seal all nts where air enters the ae. Check and repair or add weather stnpping around doors and windows. Close fireplace damper when not in use. •    Clean combustion chambers and flue passages (and chimney if necessary). •    Tune tbe oil burner and have controls set for maximum efficiency. Your oil supplier will do this for you. •    Change furnace filters at least every 30 days. They don’t cost much and clogged filters are a. primary cause of impaired efficiency. •    Double-slazed windows FOR SALE THECWHSTtAN SCIENCE MONITOR An International Daily Newspaper At The CHRISTIAN SCIENCE READING ROOM C*nir!2llia.t4tllAit S 0|Mi 12 IMm It 2 r m.

Along with wife, Carol, son, Tom, and filmmaker Jim Charbonneau plan a freewheeling world cruise after the craft is done sea trials off the coast of Nova Scotia.    ' NEXT WEEK! with every ONE DOZEN Alberta Fresh EGGS A Chance to WIN ONEPOZEir^ arranged by Cmm Jofvi/Ifovd Kd. 639 - 5th Avenue S W , Calgary Look inside your carton of Alberta Fresh Eggs for entry forms and lucky-draw details. Sponsored by the ALBERTA ‘ EGG & FOWL MARKETING BOARD can save up to a third of the energy required for beating, even old-fashioned storm windows can make a big différence, if they fit snugly. For the car: •    Form car pools for commuting to work. « Plan your motoring around town. One lonf[ trip, with several stq», will use less gas than a succession of short ones back and forth to each separate destination. •    Keep the car’s engine well tuned. Mileage is also affected by the condition of air filters, spark plugs, points and emission control devices. •    Reduce your normal travelling speed where feasible. Gasoline mileage is greater at lower speeds. •    Accelerate gradually. Fast starts waste gasoline. \VooIutoi*éK •    Try to reduce stop-ind-go driving « much as possible by anticipating traffic signals and thus minimizing braking and acceleration. •    When entering a freeway, take advantage of acceleration lanes so as to gradually reach hii^way speed rather than “floor board” tbe accelerator to reach it in a hurry. •    Avoid excessive acceleration on hills. Instead, build up adequate speed gradually, ahead of time. •    Don’t use long warm-up periods when starting a cold engine. Instead, drivé slowly for a mile or so before reaching cruising speed. •    Don’t allow the engine to idle more than a minute while parked. Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I am so mad at you I could chew thumbtacks. According to the scoring on your newly updated Know Thyself Sex Test, at least half the kids in our school are “Condemned” and the other half are “Damned Fools” or “Messed Up and Heading for Trouble." A 16-year-old junior girl, an acquaintance of mine, rated a “Normal and Decent.” I happen to Itnow she has been busted for drugs and has had an abortion. The questions in that obnoxious test were bad enough, but the scoring was out of sight. Are you sure you’ve got all your buttons, Annie? Please take a second look at this generation and stop trying to classify people by what they do or don’t do. — 84 Bnt Normal And Holding la Denver Dear Norm: First, spit out those thumbtacks before you swallow one. Now listen to this: That test was not mine. I didn’t make it up and I had nothing to do with the scoring. It came from a committee of teen-agers — two boys and two girls, as I said in the column- I made no comment either for the test or against it. I merely printed it as an example of what some teenagers are thinking about these days. Dear Ann Landers: My husband and I have been married 20 years. For 15 of Uiose 20 we have been miserable together. Our basic interests are different. We are poles apart in our views on church, drinking, friends and leisure time. We can’t even enjoy a TV show together because what I like he doesn’t, and vice versa. We have both worked hard to become financially secure. If we separate, vfe make the children unhappy. (We’ve tried it). It’s also a financial drain to run tWo separate establishments. I suggested counselling and he says he doesn’t believe in it. 1 went alone once but decid- Golden Mile Open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. Next week: Monday: Keep fit 10 a.m. Leathercraft 2 p.m. Tuesday; Singing 10 a.m. Dancing 2 p.m. The buses to Ice Capades will leave the centre at 4 p.m. sharp.

THE BEHER HALF ed it was useless for me to go wiUiout him, since he’s the one who needs it. When we were married we were in love. I don’t know what happened or why. I do know that we are both miserable and I cannot go on this way. Can you help? — Desperate Dear D.: I hate to sound like a broken record, but here I go again. Ask yourself the question: Would your life be better or worse without him? As for the children, 1 don’t believe that kids who grow up in a house where boUi parents are miserable can possibly profit from it. You say they are unhappy when you are apart. Are they happy when you are together? Go for some additional counselling and make one last attempt to get your husband to go with you. Tell him the marriage/ depends on it. And good luck to you. Dear Ann Landers: A friend of mine is being married in January for the fourth time in eight years. | have been her maid of honor twice and her matron of honor once. I think that’s enough, especially since I had to buy a new dress and shoes every time. Now she has asked me to stand up for her again and I don’t want to. The last guy she married is really great. She gave him a raw deal. I value this girl’s friendship but I’m beginning to feel like a hypocrite. I’d like some advice on what to do. — The Jonah Dear J.: I’d say you’ve done your bit. Tell your friend to ask somebody else this time. It might change her luck. What’s prudish? What’s O.K.? If you aren’t sure, you need some help.
