The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta lift HMAU> If TYie ho me maker There are many traps in carpet-buyiu, so take time out to review some of the thing to avoid and some things to look for. Where will your new carpet be? How much wear will it receive? This will make some difference as to the fibre, quality, and construction that will best serve you. Pile density or the number of tufts per square inch is an easy way for the consumer to determine quality. The height of the pile is also important, for a deeper denser pile will receive less wear per tuft and keep its original appearance longer. Neelepunch carpets that have no pile at all can take hard wear but may be less cleanable. Bedroom carpets need not be as high in quality as carpets for stairs, halls, or high-traffic areas because they receive much less wear. PRICE A minumum average price suggested by some manufacturers is 97 per square yard for a woven man-made fibre carpet of reputable quality. However, the more money you can spend, up to about per square yard, the better off you'll be. The gain in quality in fibre, density, workmanship, etc. increase greatly as the dollar value increases. Also, when considering cost relate to the cost per year as well as well as the initial price. For instance a per square yard carpet with a 2 year life expectancy actually costs per square yard per year. A per square yard carpet with a 10 year life expectancy costs per square yard per year. CLAIMS Fantastic claims for moth, mildew and fade-resistence sound good, but really all man-made fibres are moth and mildew-proof and nonallergenic. Most are fade-resistant but note this does not necessarily mean fade-proof. FIBRE CHARACTERISTICS There is no perfect fibre or construction in a carpet. Factor Wool Nylon Wear Life High Extra High Texture Retention High Medium Crush Resistance Medium Medium Soil Resistance High Medium Stain Resistance Low High Wet Cleanabihty High High Acrylic Polyester Polypropylent High High Extra High Medium Low Medium Low Medium Medium Low Low Medium Low Medium High High High High High Medium High If confusion results from brand names, try to determine the type of fibre, for instance "Hurculon" is a polypropylene fibre. PACKAGE DEALS Investigate these. In "deals" including things such as free padding and installation often these costs are included somewhere in the overall price. Check it out. CONTRACTS! To protect yourself see to it that your contract includes the following items: manufacturer's name, brand, trademark, style number, pattern, fibre, and color. Also, it should include: installation charge, description of underlay, size or total number of square yards, cost per square yard, where any seams will be and the number (did you say you wanted a bargain patchwork and the full contract price.

Accordion by REQ Frl., Crusty bread helps map Italian travel Equal basis sought for children's books EDMONTON (CP) Chil- dren's literature should be judged on the same basis as other literature, in the opinion of Jeanne Henry, who is working on a PhD on the sub- ject. Perhaps the best judge is the child, she said. "You can't fool a child. He reacts to what he feels and he won't be put off by anything shoddy." Mrs. -Henry, who has chil- dren aged six, four and al- most two, is concerned with the high cost of children's books and appalled at the quality of some of them. "If a person is going to spend or more for a book, he has to think of it in terms of she said. "If the child isn't getting anything out of it, then It's not a good book." Mrs. Henry is critical of the controlled-vocabulary, easy- to-read books which parents are encouraged to buy for be- ginning readers because the limit on the number of words restricts the author's creativ- ity. OFFER NO CHALLENGE If the child is given nothing but books at this level, he is not encouraged to learn to cope with unfamiliar words or ideas. The author of children's books must be able to feel as a child and must know his own childhood, she said. Even more important, the person selecting the book must be familiar with it and with the child for whom it is intended. Fairy tales are very moral stories, Mrs. Henry said. "The prince doesn't get the princess just because he is a prince. He has had to struggle and overcome obstacles." Mrs. Henry recognizes that children may occasionally read books that rate lower in literary value. The Nancy Drew and Hardy and Hardy Boys series, for example, appear to satisfy a need within the child, she Calendars Xi Nu Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi, will meet at p.m. Tuesday at the home of Mrs. Ruby Misak, 2518 14th Ave. S.

By MARGARET LOGAN CUriiliu Science Monitor A bicycling vacation in Italy last summer turned my head completely around on eating. Because the exercise and fresh air made me ravenous, I was always either looking for food or eating it. Italians are notoriously easygoing in matters requiring efficiency, but they demand, and get, excellence on the table. Because every consumer has such high expectations, anyone involved in selling food must go to what seems extraordinary lengths to attract patronage. Restaurant windows display ordinary vegetables in great profusion: fish, shellfish, vegetables, fruit. They are so beautifully arranged they make your mouth water. DELICIOUS In the markets, shopping is simplified, because all food is equally delicious. If a pear is not delicious, why bring it to market? People don't want to eat bad food, the marketmen reason. So your choice lies between buying from the man with the smile and the patter, or the one who has arranged all his fruit blush side up and decorated everything with lemon leaves. Charm or aesthetics the quality is understood. It is difficult to relate this to the food-gathering process in America. Since I was travelling so slowly, I would often arrive hungry in a tiny town miles from any kind of tourist centre. No matter. At the very least I could confidently expect to find perfect bread, cheese, and fruit. The American analogy is pretty sad we arrive at Macdonald's or HpJo's confidently expecting uniform mediocrity and accept this because truly dreadful food off these beaten tracks is an ever-present reality. I relied on these perfect components bread, cheese, fruit for both breakfast and lunch, roadside picnics which suited my needs, budget, and schedule. It is still hard for Americans to find a proper breakfast in Italy, and certainly a cycling American needs more than the continental roll and a hot drink. I avoided the Italian lunch, a serious three- or four- course affair, because I couldn't manage the requisite Italian nap and still average 50 miles a day. VARIETY But my picnics were far from monotonous, variety being a natural outgrowth of movement. Italy's persistent regionalism means you can find new cheese or peach varieties every other day. The greatest expression of local preference is in the bread. Panini, or rolls, are round with a thick crust and hollow inside in Bergamo, but in Verona, two cycling days away, they are oblong, delicately crusted, and decidedly more doughy within. Someone who knew all the types could probably tell where he was without a map. All Tuscan breads are robust and moistly grainy; for some reason the people of Arezzo like theirs unsalted. One day on a hill overlooking Florence I was devouring the better part of a noble Tuscan loaf and a chunk of fresh pecorino, its subtly complementary cheese. I was thinking that, over the ages, many other travellers must have broken bread right on this spot, and for the first time, I understood why bread is called the staff of life. I understood why the Italians say, "He is a good man as good as when they want to describe a particular kind of strength of character. At night before the stores closed I would shop for my next day's breakfast and then take myself to a small restaurant or trattoria, often family run. These experiences sealed my fate as a food enthusiast.
