Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 10, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, January 10, 1975 _ THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 17 Packing simplified Guide to wrinkle-free vacation By HELEN HENNESSY NBA Women's Editor NEW YORK (NBA) Ever get to your dream vacation resort and find you had "nothing to wear" or that everything was a mass of wrinkles? It doesn't have to be, since, as the travel wise know, every successful vacation starts at home with the packing of your suitcase. The following tips, supplied by the Tourist Board of the island of Bonaire, Dutch Antilles, are oriented toward the Caribbean, but are equally applicable to other popular vacation destinations. The degree of formality of your destination is all important. Do check this out with your travel agent, the hotel representative or tourist offices. The Dutch Caribbean islands, for in- stance, are generally casual, although you can dress up a bit in the evening if you like. Men are not required to wear jackets and ties in most places, but at least one of each should be included in the packing. Aim for double duty by taking tops that go with a basic pant or skirt and of course plan around a central color scheme. Accessories can vary the wardrobe, too. Naturally, choose care- free, travel fabrics. Pack two extra sets of lingerie one to wash and one to spare. Two pairs of shoes in addition to your travel san- dals; beach clogs that can double as bedroom slippers plus a dressier even- ing shoe. Your tote bag can be used as a beach bag and take along a small even- ing clutch. For a week's stay at any one resort plan on two changes per day. And that doesn't mean 14 different outfits take advantage of your mix and match sets. Add two bathing suits with cover ups and you're set secure that you're appropriately dressed and haven't brought all the wrong things or more than you need. No system of packing is completely wrinkle proof but there is a practical one which lets you use available space efficiently. Most veteran travellers find that a suitcase and tote bag suffice lor up to a two week trip. Cosmetics and breakables plus extra sandals are best in the tote. Pack your bag in sec- tions with all similar things together. They'll be easier to find. All heavy items should be at the bot- tom of your case where it hinges so that they do not become dislodged and work into your neatly packed clothing. Remember also to distribute the weight evenly to avoid shifting. Soft reliable items can fit into the toes of shoes or into purses to save space. In folding dresses, pants and suits start with the most crushable. Fold lengthwise, front down, in three sec- tions, following body lines. Place in case with collar or pant top touching bottom edge and hanging over the op- posite side of the case. Place your other dresses folded the same way, in opposite directions, with the ends hang- ing over the edge of the case. Place noriwrinkle knits in the center. Then place rolled scarves, lingerie, bathing suits, etc. at the sides of the case where the garments will fold to help buffer the crease when you fold them back over one another, layer after layer, smoothing wrinkles as you go. Your most crushable (with which you started on the bottom) will be the last to fold over and therefore will have the most protection. Now you're ready to be on your way with perfect assurance. But don't forget your sun lotion, for although the sun can be a blessing it can also be a vacation spoiler. So lather yourself up and enjoy your resort vacation.

(CP) The Prairie Lore and Living Society of Saskatchewan has received a LIP grant to help construct winterized residence facilities for use by school classes. President Don Stewart says the society has five quarter sections of land adjacent to Moose Mountain provincial park where it hopes to expose students to farm life during five-to 10-day outdoor projects. FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE Dear Ann Landers: The firm my husband works for has done some transferring and promoting. Eight months ago he got a new boss. (I'll call him Mr. X.) Since Mr. X has come into our lives I feel our marriage is falling apart. He is a selfish, rather sadistic bachelor and I disliked him from the moment we met. Mr. X has invited my husband to accompany him on out of town trips, fixed him up with and I find myself alone at least three evenings a week because my husband has to "work late." Last weekend our children went to the circus with neighbors because their dad was "summoned" to play golf and spend the day with Mr. X at his club. I am not a clinging vine or a nagging wife, f am just a nor- mal woman who feels as if something is going haywire in her marriage. My husband in- sists I am narrow minded and if I want him to get ahead, I have to put up with some as he puts it. What do you say? Out- side Looking In Dear Out: I certainly hope your husband gets ahead. He can use one with some brains in it. Or better yet, he needs some starch in his spine, so he can say no thanks to Mr. X's invitations unless he actually enjoys his new- found swinging disguised as "work." If the latter is true, I suggest you get a counselor into the act or go ?'one if your husband refuses. are bound to learn something.

When I told him his voice sounded very raspy, he said, "I should get out of this night air." A few minutes later he confided that he had cancer of the throat but asked that I not tell anyone. Two months later I received a phone call from my aunt in- forming me that my dear un- cle had shot himself to death. He left nu note of explanation and no one knew about his illness. His business was in perfect order. He had money in the bank. All his debts were paid and his wife will benefit from a very nice insurance policy. Had my uncle spent his money on hospitals and doc- tors he would have im- poverished his family and suf- fered a great deal of physical agony. The way I see it, Uncle was a wise man. I admire his manhood and respect his sense of values. What do you say? Proud Nephew Dear Nephew: I say two things. First: Your story sounds a little fishy. It's a rare insurance policy that pays off on suicide. Second: Cancer of the throat is not always fatal. When dis- covered early the patient has a chance of surviving as many former throat cancer victims will testify. So, perhaps, Uncle wasn't as wise as you think. Dear Ann Landers: My 82- year-old grandmother is visiting and we enjoy her im- mensely. I've believed since childhood that Granny knows best. Her folk medicine seems to work better than the most expensive prescriptions. But when our 5 -year old burn- ed her hand on a hot pan last night Granny quickly smeared butter on it and then sprinkled on a little salt. I read somewhere that the best way to treat a burn is to put ice on it. Who is right? Fran Dear Fran: You are. Ice should be applied to burns im- mediately. Butter is the sure way to raise a blister. It's not always easy to recognize love, especially, the first time around. Acquaint yourself with the guidelines. Read Ann Landers' booklet, "Love or Sex and How To Tell the Difference." For a copy, mail 50 cents in coin and a long, stamped, self address- ed envelope with your request to Ann Landers, P.O. Box 1400, Elgin, Illinois 60120.

Working women overworked GENEVA (AP) The International Labor Organiza- tion (ILO) says working women spend more time on household chores than their husbands and suggests equal sharing of the burden. An ILO report entitled Equality of Opportunity and Treatment- for Women Workers, says married women with children are the worst victims of overwork, enjoying less than two-thirds of the free time their husbands en- joy. Mothers who also have out- side jobs put in between 70 and 80 hours of work a week, says the report prepared for dis- cussion in next June's annual ILO conference as the organ- ization's contribution to the 1975 Women's Year. "Where does the solution the report asks. Answer- ing its own question it says: "Perhaps in three direc- tions." "First, as one of the pre- requisites of sexual equality, a more equal and equitable sharing of the burdern of housework and the care of children between men and women. "Second, a greater ratio- nalization and mechanization of housework so men and women have more leisure."
