Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, July 19, 1973 THI UTHMIDM HttAlB The Homemaker By BARBARA SCHULZ District Home Economist I've always maintained toe best way to communicate with nature is by sitting very quietly near a well-supplied picnic bas- ket. A picnic can be for a couple or a crowd. You can hike, take a bus, motorcycle, bike or drive. Bight day, right mood, a picnic just happens. The beach is fine so is a lake, or a park with picnic tables. But why not try an unusual location? What about a roof top, an amusement park, a river bank or an idylic shady glade. Seek and you shall find all sorts of neat spots! How you pack a picnic can make the difference between a so-so outing and the greatest picnic of all. You'll need vac- uum bottles, jugs, an insulated bag, or for a an ice chest. As well you'll want an old tablecloth or a paper one, plastic eating utensils, paper plates, cups, napkins and a picnic basket. Picnics can be casual; picnic preparations can't Freeze water in sealed milk cartons or in plastic jugs then put these supercubes in an in- sulated bag and surround them with items you want to stay cool Prechill food at least three hours before the trip. Have plenty of wrappings and containers to protect food and later to store leftovers. Don't overlook the and pepper, can opener, serv- ing spoons, spatulas, paper towels, and packets of moisten- ed towelettes. All come in bandy. Of course, it's die food menus based on all cold foods which are easiest to tote and can be made extra-special. As a suggestion I have an easy-ttxarry menu for you. Try it, then come up with your own Picnic Chicken Drumsticks c. prepared yeHow mus- tard c. apricot preserves 1 tbsp. catsup 12 chicken drumsticks Combine mustard, preserves, and catsup. Place chicken drumsticks on shallow baking pan; brush with half the mus- tard mixture. Bake at 350 de- grees for 30 minutes. Turn' brush with remaining mustard mixture, and bake 30 minutes longer or until tender. Serve cold. Makes 12 drumsticks. Staffed Tomato Salad 9 medium size tomatoes 1 tsp. salt tsp. pepper 1 small onion, chopped 1 c. chopped celery 110 ounce pkg. mixed veg- etables, cooked and drained c. on, vinegar, bottled salad dressing 1 c. finery diced Danish port salut cheese Slice top from tomato, hollow out pulp, leaving a shell inch thick. Drain tomatoes and spin- kle inside with tsp. salt and tsp. pepper. Chill. Chop tomato pulp and toss with onion, celery, vegetables, salad dressing, cheese and re- maining salt and pepper. Chill 1 hour. Drain well and use mix- ture to stuff tomatoes. Makes 9 servings. (The tomatoes can be filled with the premarinated vegetables and cheese at the picnic site or filled at home if wrapped carefully in aluminum foil. April Showers Punch 1 46-oz. can cherry punch, chilled 1 6 oz. can frozen concen- trated lemonade 1 qt. club soda, chilled Combine punch and frozen lemonade, stir until blended. Slowly stir in chilled club soda. Makes about 104 oz. cups. Chocolate Brownies 3 squares unsweetened chocolate c. butter or margarine 1 c. sugar c. milk 3 eggs c. sifted all purpose flour c. instant mashed potato granules tsp. baking powder tsp. salt 1 c. chopped pecans Frosting (your choice) In medium size saucepan melt chocolate with butter. Stir in sugar and milk; beat in eggs one at a time. Sift together flour, potato granules, bak ing powder, and salt; stir in choco- late mixture with pecans add- ed. Pour into greased 9-inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool. Spread with frosting. Makes 9-3 inch squares. In addition include a selec- tion of breads and breadsticks. And remember it's the extra touches that make your picnic special! Take along well-washed fresh fruit as extra hunger satisfiers and some nibbles such as cheese cubes and crisp vegetables. Some foods, big favorites, don't go well with picnics mayonnaise mixtures, creamed puddings, sauces, creamed pies and cakes, milk. You can take them of course, if you keep them absolutely icy. They're safe that way, but why risk bac- terial growth these foods en- courage. As well, poultry and other should be kept icy cold or hot as the case may be if you decide on hot foods too. Clean up. Put an trash in a garbage can. If there is none, be prepared to pack it up in plastic bags and take it home for disposal. Others want to enjoy the great outdoors and do their communing with nature in a dean environment. Why not start planning now for a great picnic this weekend. Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our six-year-old son is a bright child and extremely inquisitive. Billy has a great love for all living things. He wants to know about animals, insects aad flowers how they reproduce themselves and what makes them grow. He has been told that all liv- ing things come from seeds. BiUy has seen pregnant wom- en and he knows that babies lives begin with a seed from the daddy and until they are ready to be born they win be carried in the mommy's nity w_ Recently he pinned me down and I had to tell him exactly how a new baby gets out of ttae mommy's tummy. He seemed perfectly satisfied the subject hasn't come up since.

When I told him about our recent conversation he became madder than I've ever seen him. He called me an idiot for going into so much detail. According to my husband, there is no need to describe human reproduction until a child is 12 years old. He says there is so much sex talk around these days that kids think about nothing else. He believes parents should stay with the seed story as long as possible. He claims too much information encour- ages "experimentation and investigation." We have two younger children and I need to know if he is right Thanks, Ann. S.O.S. DEAR S.O.S.: He is wrong. A child's questions should al- ways be answered honestly.

"This discrimination involves certified nursing aides who___ are doing work that is substan- tially the same as certified nursing orderlies."

Mr. Broad said the classifi- cation certified nursing aide is comprised entirely of women and that of certified cursing or- derly entirely of men. The present salary scale for Foothills Hospital certified nur- sing aides is and and For certified nursing orderlies to "The position of the associa- tion is that this is discrimina- tion according to the indi- vidual's rights protection act Toe association last weefc signed an agreement with Foot- fflfe Hospital covering about 770 emptyees, including certi- fied nursing aides.

Not many people were ever involved in it, and the few who were say it had little lasting effect except, perhaps, to heighten people's aware- ness of rising food prices. la a Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press, people who led toe boycott two months ago said they hoped the awareness might translate into public pressure that -would have an effect on food prices, but they weren't optimistic. Peter Warren, a Winnipeg broadcaster who was among the first off the mark in or- ganizing a boycott, says it was a failure. He says he went to Ottawa afterwards to present a peti- tion with signatures asking for government price controls on meat. He says be met with New Democrat and Progressive Conservative leaders but was turned down by the Liberals. Mr. Warren says what other boycott leaders maintain, that the Price Review Board is in- effective because it has ,no power. Blanche Jullinot of La Ligue des Femmes da Quebec in Montreal agrees. She says her group wants a new board with representation from con- sumers, farmers and process- ors to reflect general opin- ions. The group sent a delegation to Ottawa to lobby for a new board and is planning to cir- culate a petition this summer. Kathy Olinyk says petitions are still "floating around" in Vancouver and will be sent to Ottawa to protest meat prices. She was one of the organ- izers of People Against Soar- ing Prices, which she says never really caught on. Margaret Rouble of the To- ronto-based Women Against Soaring Prices says she be- lieves the boycott helped by alerting consumers to rising prices, but she says she isn't interested in starting another, Neither is Joanne Fisher of Courtright, Ont. She now says education is needed to teach homemaksrs about buying and preparing food. Bob Roberts, an Ottawa broadcaster, says he doesn't believe another boycott is pos- sible. "I think you would have to find some entirely different method. I don't think people would support ft." Janet Murray of Halifax says, the boycott "failed be- cause it couldn't succeed." "Its difficult to bring prices down for any length of time, considering the lack of controls available -to aid con- said Mrs. Murray, president of the Halifax County branch of ths Con- sumers' Association of Can- ada. The CAC's national presi- dent, Maryon Brechin of To- ronto, recently reiterated the group's stand' that boycotts are little use and may even serve to drive prices up. It is the opinion expressed by some government officials, by people who sell meat and even by some protesters. Diana Haverstock, chair- man of Edmonton's Protest Outrageous Rising Costs, says her group sent a petition to the Alberta consumer affairs minister. She says she finds the price of meat and buys little, but she did not think a boycott would accom- plish anything. "It would have stopped pro- duction of beef at the farm- gate level. Then when people did go back to buying beef, prices would have gone higher." Three independent butchers in St. John's all say their sales volume hasn't changed, in spite of complaints about prices. They have regular customers who continue to buy about what they have al- ways bought. There were no boycott or- ganizers in Newfoundland or P.E.I. B.C. Agriculture Minister Dave Stupich says he .was pleased that Canadian con- sumers largely Ignored the boycott. He says prices night be briefly reduced by a boy- cott, but in the long run would go higher. His opinion was shared by an official at Swift's Meat Packing, in Montreal who preferred to remain anonymous. He said with less demand, the farmer would produce less, and prices would rise. There seem to have been a few side-effects from the boy- cott. Both horse meat and the new part-soybean hamburger were given a good deal of publicity, and may have at- tracted some customers. And several of the boycot- ters said people learned to use cheaper cute of meat, to eat more fish, to experiment with some meatless dishes. calendar of local napper The Original Pensioners and Senior Citizens Society will hold a general meeting Wed- nesday in Gym 2 of the civic centre from 2 to 4 p.m. Mr. D.

THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "I know I'm late, but a little old lady hijacked the bus to retirement city." Guaranteed annual income no cure for unemployment OTTAWA (CP) A guaran- teed annual income alone is not a cure-all for unemployment ills, the executive director of the Vanier Institute of the Fam- ily told a conference on chang- ing concepts of work recently. "We are manufacturing pov- erty and unemployment by the amount of human activity that goes Bill Dyson told 60 delegates to a two-day session on work sponsored by the Canadian Council on Social Development. Simply legislating a guaran- teed income into existence was not the answer, be said. "We're just paying people to go away like we've done with the aged and increasing the depth of the problem. "The problem is not a short- age of money to afford a guar- anteed annual income for ev- eryone above a certain age, nor is it a shortage of work, but rather one of identity iden- tity is a crucial problem." As -wen as a guaranteed in- come, Mr. Dyson said in an in- terview, there most be a change of attitude towards jobs that are being done afl the tune but are not considered work in the traditional sense.

"Before we go chasing for all kinds of new concepts of work let's look at what's happening and legitimize it and then re- ward it" Participants in the conference include social workers, re- searchers, representatives from the federal departments of secretary of state, northern and manpower and immigration, economists, and representatives from the Canadian Labor Con- gress.
