Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Grocery discounts no real bargain EDMONTON (CP) The price difference between dis- count grocery stores and Die bi chains often isn't big enough to Executive elected by Alumnae DONNA KARL new president The annual meeting of the Gait School of Nursing Alum- nae was held recently at the Letbbridge Municipal Hospital, with the election of the 1972 ex- ecutive taking place. Named honorary president was Mrs. M. Christensen, with Mra. W. Hope as honorary vice president. Officials elected include Donna Karl, president, Verra Alder, first vice president, Marion Teierle, second vice- president, Beverley Potter, cor- responding secretary, Linda Jensen, recording secretary. Carol Rotbe and Linda Bras- sor, social convenors, Judy Meroniuk, phoning committee. Members at large are Mari- lyn Coupland, Connie Schipper, and Trus Holokoski with Clau- dia Dunn as archivist make shopping at the discount stores worth while, say> Dr. Ml chael Stiles, associate professor at (he University of Alberta school of household economics. "Discount stores provide a certain amount of competition for the grocery giants and we need them for this he told a meeting of the Edmonton branch of the Consumers' Asso- ciation of Canada. "But they should be able to do better than offer their present [ive-per-cent discount in order to make shopping there profita- ble." Discount stores had to become more serious about services if hey were to be real competition to other Studies by Dr. Stiles and his associates have shown that when "specials" are taken Into account, there may be only a wo- to five-per-cent difference etween shopping at a discount store and a chain "where serv- ce, quality and brand names are reliable." And he said there is little ar- gument that some department lore food floors carry larger selections and offer credit 'which can justify higher prices." Dr. Stiles also said that small, ndependent stores may charge ive to six per cent more. But 'verhead costs are higher and hese stores may provide a 'neighborhood friendliness of contact that may be worth the extra money." The surveys also showed that ;rocery prices are higher in areas than in mid- dle-income areas, be said. ONE-FAM1LY BAND UNION BAY, B.C.

I would not have said as you did, that the girl had a sawdust bead. You should be ashamed of yourself for putting her down. Another Sawdust Head in Columbus Dear Columbus: Bravo to your 14-year-old daughter for challenging me. There is, indeed, something to be said for the jleasant girl who isn't up on things, and it's true she might be be Ideal wife for me man who doesn't wish to be challenged. Isn't it lucky that all men don't want the same kind of women? The problem surfaces when a man marries a dolly for her ooks and then realizes she has nothing else. That's when the real trouble begins. Dear Ann Landers: A group of us were discussing a new book written by a young married couple which presents a strong case against having children. As a mother who has had a lot of trouble with two teen-agers I kept quiet, but I agreed with the young authors. Since I am not signing this letter 1 can tell you that if it weren't for our kids my husband and I would have had a beautiful life together. The book insists that motherhood is not instinctive, but an art of selfishness that most parents have children because hey want (he kids to do something for (hem and not because hey want to do something for the kids. Another point: Women become pregnant to get attention a nine-month ego trip. The pregnant woman is waited on, pampered, and treated as if she were a Dresden doll. Other reasons for having children were listed and in them saw myself and my friends. Examples: (1) Pressure from the folks. us grandparents (2) Proof of masculinity. (3) Parenthood gives adults the right to boss somebody around. (4) Couples sometimes feel their marriage is falling apart and they hope children will help keep it together. All in all, the book made plenty of sense. Will you comment, please? Airs. No Name Dear Mrs.: I agree that couples who are immature and unstable are better off without children. I do not agree, how- ver, that pregnancy is a nine-month ego trip especially for women via throw up a lot. Although I haven't read the book, believe couples who decide not to have children for whatever reason, owe no apologies and no explanations to anyone. It's heir business.
