What looks like a good buy is not always, unless you determine the price per unit in both large and smaller quantities. For all the complaints about men turned loose on the grocery shelves with their chocolate covered ants> truffles and jumbo shrimp, they are in fact often the ones who take the time to stop and compare prices. And it does take time. Store prices are set by the wholesale price of the items and the individual chain. The decision-making process is neither reliable nor is it in any way consistent. Prices are supposed to be the same within a chain, but they differ according to locale, a statement easily proved by a round trip shopping excursion. Last weekend one chain store sported a display of 10-oz. tins of vegetable beef soup, 4-for 87 cents. Farther along the aisle were the regular 20-oz. tins of the same soup for 39 cents each. A bit of simple arithmetic shows the shopper that 40 ounces of vegetable beef soup could then be bought for either 87 cents or 78 cents, depending upon the size of the tin wanted. It is logical to assume that a larger size tin should be processed more economically than the smaller tin, even though comparison shopping does not always bear this out, either. However the rub here was that the 4-for-87 was a store special. The regular price of the 10-oz. soup is 2 for 49 cents. The regular price of 40 ounces of soup in 10-oz. tins is 98 cents, 20 cents more than if the two 20-oz. tins were purchased. On this basis, the larger tin is definitely a better buy, and the special is only lowering the ridiculous price difference, not a money saving proposition at all. Comparision shopping is time  consuming and annoying but no one else is doing it for us, and there are apparently no safeguards anywhere along the line. ? ? ? Warnings have been issued to consumers by the Canadian Association of Consumers about too casual buying. The warnings include: Mass displays - which may look like a bargain but are not. Watch "and of aisle" displays - Check size or weight, unit price and grade. Color, shapo and design of packages may be designed to help you buy. Buy contents, not the package. Look at items above or below eye level. They may be better buys than those at eye level. How special is a special. Look for facts, not impressions. Watch the check-out of each item. Cashiers may forget a special price (although we are not aware of this being a problem in city stores). One supermarket executive said that any businessman who considers the consumer movement as a passing fad is on his way out of business. And in case you have the idea that it's all gravy in food stores, it isn't. As one local store manager told me this week, "We start feeling the Christmas rush about January 15th. "That's when all the returnable cheques start coming in. He did say though that about 75-80 per cent of them are validated promptly. DEFINITION OF A SUPERMARKET MANAGER as listed at the 1970 supermarket show held in Toronto. "This man is a miracle worker ... he has to be ... a peerless merchandiser ... a smooth public relations man ... a diplomatic leader ... an accomplished accountant ... a keen competitor . . . and, he has to make a profit." ... and I'd add another, willing to listen to his customers' woes and answer their questions. love 25... ... letting her make the final decision, choosing furniture. wiH for Training session The Chinook division hold a training session - guides and brownie leaders at St. Mary's School in Taber Saturday from 1-5 p.m. This session was previously to have been held Jan. 16.

VANCOUVER (CP) - A number of parents whose children attend Norquay elementary school are planning extra protection' for children against would-be molesters and other hazards. Parents nave organized a "block mother" program - to go into operation this year - under which various homes along routes to the school will serve as safety points. The idea is not new, and has been working for about five years in suburban Coquitlam and a number of American cities. In each block one or two mothers keep a watch on small children as they walk to and from school. Their homes are marked with a fluorescent red sticker in a window and the children are instructed to run to these homes in the event of trouble. One of the organizers, Joyce Lebedow, said: "The children are told not to abuse these homes and to use them only In emergency, But it may be any sort of emergency. For instance, the little ones can get so terribly frightened if there is a dog chasing them." Mrs. Lebedow is chairman of the PTA health and safety committee. She has about 30 homes on her list and hopes to have about 50 when the program starts. A police spokesman said 32 children between,the ages of three and 12 years were indecently assaulted in the Vancouver area during the first eight months of last year. Eleven of these cases occurred at or near a school, playground or park. The Norquay group has taken all precautions recommended by police - and gone one step farther. OUT OF REACH Babies and toddlers can suffocate on such items as peanuts or popcorn. Keep them out of reach. JACKPOT BINGO This Evening, January 28th STARTS 8.00 P.M.
