Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 20, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Spice of her life Pass the salt and Sure, but which set? When you have 626 salt and pepper shakers to choose from, as Stanelo Bitango has, the decision is not always easy. Mrs. Bitango, 24, of Lethbridge has been collecting shakers for about three years. Some sets come from as far away as Paris, Mexico, Las Vegas, Texas and Yugoslavia. She says she started her collection because she thought novelty shakers were Now, people going on trips often bring her salt and pepper souvenirs to add to her collection. The average cost of a pair of shakers is Antibiotics may have caused deaths in U.S. WASHINGTON (AP) Ralph Nader's Health Research Group has asked the United States Federal Drug Commission (FDC) to warn doctors and patients to limit use of'two widely prescribed antibiotics which it says have been responsible for more than 15 deaths and hundreds of thousands of cases of colitis. The drugs were identified as clindamycin and lincomycin, marketed as Cleocin and Lin- cocin by the Upjohn Co. of Kalamazoo Mich. Sidney Wolfe, director of the Health Research Group, urged the Food and Drug Ad- ministration (FDA) to take "definitive action towards eliminating this epidemic of preventable adverse drug reactions and deaths." Wolfe said the FDA should 1 warn doctors and patients not to use the two drugs. Won..

WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT Vv Friday Saturday, January 24th and Entertainment Canteen Saturday For Members anff their Invited Guests only: College brochure demeaning women VERNON, B.C. (CP) Cartoons of scantily clad girls and severe looking women librarians used to il- lustrate the library brochure of Okanagan College have aroused the wrath of the status of women project of the British Columbia Teachers' Federation. Writing to the college coun- cil, Linda Shuto, director of the status of women project, expressed her "dismay" over the illustrations in the hand- book. She said "it is astounding that in 1975 publications like this are still in existence, par- ticularly at an institution dedicated to learning and .the development of human poten- tial." Ms. Shuto said she wants the brochures withdrawn from circulation, described them as "an embarrassment to the educational system of British and she was not alone in her objec- tions. Colleen Pringle, govern- ment appointed represen- tative from Vernon on the college council, agreed the il- lustrations, which "reinforce the sexual are in questionable taste. "I think the handbook would have been better off without she said. Mrs. Pringle said too many of the cartoons showed female librarians in "a gfUndy and a bun" or else they showed "lecherous oafs looking at Playboy, bunny type girls." Ms. Shuto was told by college officials that it is im- possible to recall all the brochures, but that the offending cartoons will be removed from subsequent publications. Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: Two years ago, I took a short course in Human Relations. Last night I went through some old notebooks and found this "lesson" which has been invaluable to me. I would like to share it with others. Better For It In Massapequu The six most important words in the English language: I admit I made a mistake. The five most important words: You did a good job. The four most important words: What is your opinion? The three most important words: If you please. The two most important words: Thank you. The one most important word: We. The least important word: I. Dear Mass: Thank you. You did a good job. We appreciate your sharing. (I used EIGHT ol the most important words right here also the LEAST Dear Ann Landers: This letter is in regard to "Urgent and the family whose young relative was diagnosed as having a brain tumor. Though my brain tumor was benign, surgery was necessary because of its location, size and rapid growth. My neurosurgeon was very skilled and the operation was a complete success. I was warned that I would probably be blind in one eye, but I was very lucky. My vision in both eyes is nearly perfect. Now, at age am in ex-. cellent health. The only reminder of that tumor is a thin scar and some pills I must take daily for a thyroid deficiency. When I first learned of the tumor, I was scared to death, and so was my family, but our faith in God and a wonder- ful surgeon kept us strong. Thank you, Ann, for telling your readers that "a brain tumor need not be a death sentence." I am living proof and there are thousands more like me. Alive And Well Dear A and W: Thank you for the heartening testimonial. I received some letters from readers who had malignant brain tumors removed and made it. So, the word from here is, "Have faith and a good doctor." Dear Ann Landers: After 20 years of marriage and six kids, my husband decided he'd rather have a younger woman. We divorced nine months ago and he says he loves the children but he refuses to take them even for one night. (He and the younger woman are living together but not I want to entertain a male friend of whom I have become very fond, but. there is ab- solutely no privacy around here. My bedroom is the only possibility. It has a TV, stereo and bed. Would it be decent, nine months after their father left, to entertain a man in my bedroom? Does being single and rais- ing children mean I have to give up EVERYTHING? Cheated Dear Cheated: If your hus- band says he loves the kids he'd better start proving it by taking them for weekends (sans girlfriend until they, marry if they do) and on holidays. This would not only make them feel less abandon- ed but prevent total estrange- ment which may prove very painful for him in years to come. It would also provide the relief and periodic freedom to which you are cer- tainly entitled. Monday, January 20, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Consumers conference told Convenience packaging expenses likely to escalate within year 19 RED DEER (CP) A Calgary consumer counsellor says consumers should be wary of attempts by manufac- turers of processed foods to manipulate buying trends by using "unnecessary promotion." Brenda Strathan told a meeting ending on the weekend, sponsored by the Alberta branch of the Con- sumers' Association of Canada, that manufacturers sometimes use a promotion gimmick of "convenience packaging" to establish a product on the market, then raise the price when the item becomes popular. She said individually wrapped slices of processed cheese are now being sold at the same price as bulk wrapped slices. "It might be worthwhile for the manufacturer in the case of cheese to take an initial loss in the case of individually wrapped slices. "Then, after people stop buying the unwrapped slices (due to the convenience of in- dividually wrapped manufacturers might raise the price." As long as there is a choice between the two types of packaging, there is no problem, said Ms. Slrathan. "But there is the possibility that once the convenience packaging catches on, the bulk product may be removed from the market place and consumers would find themselves paying higher prices for packaging costs alone." Ron Tolton, western Canada field director of the Meat Packers' Council of Canada, said "people don't seem to buy bulk products in the meat industry they would rather pick up pre packaged items." He used bulk wieners and slabs of bulk bacon as ex- amples. "Consumers are will- ing to pay that little bit extra for the convenience of not having to slice bacon." Mr. Tolton cited statistics which show that "in terms of packaging cost, it takes six cents a pound to package bacon and four cents a pound to package wieners." Promo- tion costs for wieners and bacon are about a penny a pound, he said. Sally Merchant of the federal department of Con- sumer and Corporate Affairs in Edmonton said promotion goes beyond advertising. It includes discounts, contests to push a product, money sav- ing coupons and free samples. Dave Stowe, assistant vice president of Scott Paper Products, said packaging costs will evenutally go up as federal regulations come into effect in 1976 requiring a bilingual list of the full ingredients of a product. Additional increases could come with adaptation of the metric system and re- quirements to list nutritional contents. Some packaging which may at first sight appear to cost consumers more may save money in the long run, said Mr. Stowe, referring to the packaging of razor blades, which is designed to prevent shoplifting. He added that there was so much competition in the paper industry "that promotional discounts are offered by paper product manufacturers every week." If retailers wanted, they could offer a year round supply of paper products at discount prices, he said.
