The Homemaker BY ELIZABETH BARTMAN Buying fabrics may be on | your mind these days. The end I of the year sales and the lengthening daylight hours seem to put home sewers into frenzied effort. In the textile field tliere have been others in a frenzy too. Ever since the man-made fabrics have been used in garments, fabrics and household articles, confusion has reigned. What service will I get from that fabric? Can I wash it or does it require dry cleaning? These are questions which come to a consumer's thought. Have you had the experience of dry cleaning a garment only to discover when it's almost worn out that it washes beautifully? The retailer, launderer and dry cleaners too, and even tine manufacturers have had more than their share of frustration. Although there are 17 types of manmade fibres, 700 brand names have been used interchangeably with them. Now the industry has finally identified 17 family or generic names; these tell us what we have in fabrics without deciphering mysterious trade names. Here they are - some will be PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES $500 JACKPOT LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upstairs) EVERY THURS.- 8 p.m. strange, others familiar. But we will soon know them as familiarly as we know cotton, linen, silk and wool. Acetate, anidex, acrylic, glass, metallic, modacrylic, nylon, nytril, azlon, olefin, polyester, rayon, rubber, saran, span-dex, vinal, and vinyon. The Textile Labelling Act has been passed. Perhaps by this summer it will be mandatory that all fabrics, clothing and household textiles be labelled. The tag must clearly indicate the generic name of the fabric and the percentage of the fibres present. This great step forward in convenience and usefulness has been brought about through the untiring efforts of the Consumers Association of Canada. It is hoped that when the textile industry is making this mandatory change it will also include the voluntary care labelling system as introduced by the Honorable Ron Bastard, Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs. He believes that you and I want to know what we are buying as well as how to care for it. Is that what you want? If so, and you don't see the care system of labelling with the name of the textile, then ask for it.

All but one of these children are adopted. I arise at 5:30 a.m., fix breakfast for my husband, start the laundry going, do a little ironing and fold some diapers. At 8:30 I drive my husband to work and the five-year-old to school. The other kids are piled in the station wagon. From then on it's go, go, go. Last week I was rushing around trying to get everything done so I'd be on time for bowling league. Two minutes after the sitter arrived, in walks my mother-in-law. She could see I was on my way but she sat down anyway. Finally I said, "I'm sorry but I was just leaving." She asked, "Leaving for where?" When I said, "Bowling," she blew up - said I certainly didn't need any more exercise with all those kids. I stood there dumbfounded when she called me "crazy" for taking the twins when their mother (my sister) had died in childbirth. I walked past her and muttered, "Please call next time -for YOUR sake as well as mine." She hasn't dropped in since. So, Ann, you've got a soulmate in Columbus. DEAR SOULMATE: Bravo. I applaud the courageous manner in which you protected your integrity. * � * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I know you have an impressive list of consultants who help you with your answers pertaining to medicine, psychiatry, law, religious matters, and so on. Why in the world didn't you seek the advice of a nutrition expert before you told the mother that "butter is butter -whethter it's on bread or whether you fry an egg in it." When butter is fried it changes its chemical composi- j tion, as any dietician will tell you. Young children should | not eat eggs fried in butter. How about ten swats with an aluminum fry pan? -Bend, Oregon, DEAR BEND: Sorry, dearie. You're wrong. I've got the National Dairy Council on my side. They backed up my statement (which had been previously checked with a nutrition expert). I quote the National Dairy Council: "If a child h'as a normal digestive tract, he will not be harmed by eating eggs fried in butter. Butter is butter - and tlie chemical composition does not change when butter is lieatcd. It does change, however, if it is burned." I assumed the mother who wrote knows how to fry an egg without burning it. � * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I enjoy your column and respect your mature judgment, but I feel obliged to correct a statement you made recently. When the -teenager who complained that her father's denture-clicking was driving her crazy, you said, "Noisy dentures mean a poor fit." This is wrong. The only time a person's upper and lower teeth (true or false) normally touch is while eating. The rest of the time, the muscles keep the lower jaw open. Tins is called freeway space. The dad with the clicking dentures does not have enough freeway space. He should tell his dentist about the problem. It can be remedied. - W. L. National School of Dental Technology, Pluladelpliia. DEAR W.L.: Thanks for the correction. My dental consultant tells me you are right. But lie added, "Upper and lower teeth do touch about 2,000 times a day - when a person swallows." * * - How lar should a teen-age couple go? Can necking be sale? When does it become too hot to handle? Send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Necking And Petting - What Are The Limits?"

Home-School Assn. to meet \ Monday at 8 The Lethbridge Council of : Home and School Association will be meeting Monday at 8 p.m. in Gilbert Paterson School.
