Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, July 12, 1971 THE LtTHMIDOE HEKAIO Ann Landers Summer safety for good health DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I went to dtarer at my sister's house. There were ten of ttere- mostly family. The conversation was made a bit livelier by te martinis before dinner and wine with the meaL After dinner we all moved to file living room and started to swap stories. My husband reached over and helped tarn- self to a pear which was in a bowl of fruit on the coffee table. Before I could get to him he: a bite. His partial plate came out nght there and then. The pear was wax. My husband blew his top. He insisted that my sister put the artificial fruit out as a gag-knowing someone would try to eat it. I say she did no such thing. I also say if he hadn't been loaded he would have known the fruit was wax before he bit into it. Please settle this family fight. We need a ref.erec.-It Happened In Billings DEAR HAP: I suspect your hunch about the martinis is correct Artificial fruit might fool the eye, but a reasonably sober person would have been able to tell when he picked up the pear that it wasn't the real thing. Your husband has a hornet in his helmet, Lady. r DEAR ANN LANDERS: When I read the letter from the woman who dished out that gooey advice on "How To Be Happy Though Widowed At I nearly lost my break- fast Her counsel consisted of: "Get off your duff. Tlrere are SO many exciting things to do! Stuff envelopes! Be a free baby sitter! Run errands for a friend! Drive an eld- erly person to the Those dreary suggestions dJd not turn me on, and I'm sure the widows who read that col- umn yawned. I have something much better to offer. As a woman who was widowed at 52, I can tell the world I have never been happier than 1 am today. My solution was college! For the first 50 years of my lite I- had an inferiority complex because my education stopped at nigh school. When my husband passed away I decided to enroll in a junior college. Now, two years later, I look forward to getting a degree. My days are filled with excitement. It's as though I have been given a second chance to be young again. There's nothing the kids can do that I cant do better or at least as well. I ask for no favors, I go the regular routine-and I love it. There is so much to learn so much to do. I feel alive and I know I am grow- ing iniproving-broadening my horizons and discovering the excitement of ideas. This life sure heats being a fifth wheel with two married cmiples-or worse yet, going places with other widows. Spread the word, Co-Ed DEAR BETTY: Consider it spread. Thanks for writing. Alcohol is no shortcut to social success. If you think you have to drink to be accepted by your friends, get the facU. Read "Booze And You-For Teen-Agsrs by Ann Landers.

If these precautions are not kept, it could result in food poisoning. discarded refrigerator or freezer can be a dangerous trap for children at play out- doors. Always remove doors from unused refrigerators and freezers, or seal them shut so that accidents do not occur. container labels should always be read careful- ly, and then read a second time, the Council advises. Note the amount to be taken, wheth- er the dosage varies for adults and children, how often it should be taken, if it should be taken before eating, and whether you should shake the bottle or not. All precautionary measures should be taken with medicines. thorough medicine clean- up of old and leftover medi cines tucked away in the pan- try or forgotten on a shelf hi the laundry or bedroom should be undertaken. cleanup can be done in the following way: collect all medicines in one place. Discard all prescription medicines left over from previous illnesses, no matter how much is in the con- tainer, unless your doctor has advised keeping them. should be ilusii- ed down the drain.

Statistics say that more than half the injuries from falls in the home are sustained by persons under 15 and over 65 years-of-age. The Council sug- gests that these statistics can be lessened ii everv area of the home is analyzed for potential hazards that can cause. falls, and correct these hazards. Throw away throw rugs with- out non-skid backing; inspect ladder rungs; install hand rails and stair treads on stairways; install good lighting at top and bottom of stairways; and place rubber mats in the bathtub and shower, and grab bars in bath and shower stalls. These tips are designed to lessen the chance of injuries and spoiled holidays in the home. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "If I have to come in there again, you'll get out of bed so fast you'll moke o popping noise." we'ie realists We don't go along with the "no deposit-no return" way of working. Not when it comes to money. Returns are our business. We know it takes money to make money. There are several kinds of money. The money you earn. It makes sense to demand a good return on it. The money you spend. The less you pay for service charges, credit charges, interest-the more you have left to spend. The money you keep. Realistic- ally invested, it will make money for you. The money you borrow. A Trea- sury Branch loan is economical. It takes more than money to make money. It takes lore- thought, solid planning and experienced management. Money doesn't look after itself. It needs professional care. Talk to your Treasury Branch Manager, about the best care tor your money. He's a realist.
