The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, January THE LETHBRIOOE HERALD Lynne Van Luven Energy crisis sparks brighter life My friend Mazie is doing her bit to offset the energy crisis. She believes that frugality, like charity and house-maid's knee, begins at home. That's why I wasn't too disturbed when she invited me over for a cup of tea last night, but didn't answer the doorbell when I rang. After vigorous pounding, I managed to summon her. It was just as I'd suspected she'd disconnected her doorbell. "Who needs that ding-a- ling she asked, and for a minute, I thought she was talking about me. "It's been a lote more peaceful around here, since I unhooked that bell." I immediately saw that Mazie was going all-out in her kilowatt saving cam- paign. In the dim candle light illuminating the living room, I noticed my friend seemed more youthful and rested than I'd seen her in years. I didn't want to pry, but as she stirred the coals on the hearth and put the kettle on to boil, I couldn't refrain from commenting on her altered appearance, or from asking its cause. was Mazie's brisk reply as she settled back to await the water's boil. THRIVE "People thrive on crisis, as long as it's not 'too my friend continued. "We all. need challenge in our lives. And so, although there's technically no real energy crisis in Alberta, I've been pretending there is, just to see what I can do without. I prompted. "I've declared Mazie, "that I can live quite happily and a lot more healthily without countless gadgets I once thought were in- dispensable. You're wondering why I look so rested? Television I turned it off, haven't seen a late show in weeks. And I'm in great shape I've been walking everywhere. That's simplified my life too, because when you're on foot, you cut out a lot of the frivolities and fool's STILL SELLING FOR LESS! STERN'S CUT-RATE FWMTURE 314 3rd Strut 8. 327-3024 errands. You conduct only essential business. And that has saved me money." I was about to say that I greatly admired her for showing such initiative and spunk, but Marie bad not yet finished. "Do you want to know she asked, not expecting me to reply. "The energy crisis began a long, long time ago, and it didn't start with resources it began with people. ENSNARED "Our laziness ensnared continued my zealous friend. "We became depen- dent on appliances and mechanical monsters. We let ourselves do less and less. Soon, idleness sapped our energy and lethargy replaced incentive. "And so, we had our own energy I finished. "Exactly said Mazie, pouring tea with a flourish. "We were greedy consumers, over-used gadgetry and abused our resources. Now and in the future, we will have to adapt to shortages of both energy and commodities that's the price we have to pay for past sins." I know exactly what she meant. On my way home, I slipped in the dark on Mazie's icy back step and am able to indulge in prone laziness only with great pain to my posterior.
