And that's what Nilssons' Pie Shop is nil about. ft's a pie specialty shop, with the flavor of an oldfashioned ice cream parlor, and lots of smiling faces behind Uie coun- ter. Owner, manager, and pie- maker, Don Nilsson, admits knowing absolutely nofhi n g about the pie business, but something about good pies and how to make them, Mr. Nilsson said that his wife, Judy, was "always a good and her flair for mak- ing mouth-watering pies has I now been extended to produc- I ing the same in the shop. 1 "We started the shop about 15 months said Mr. Nils- son, "and it's been doing pretty well so far." The idea of the shop devel- oped as a family effort, and from seeing the many out-of- the-way places they visited dur- ing their holidays in the United States. "We enjoyed popping into little speciality places along the he said, "and often talk- ed about opening an ice cream or pie shop." The pie shop won mainly be- cause "the lack of competi- tion" In the Lethbridge area. "I've been a rancher all my LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By CATHIE RETI Herald Staff Writer It looks like summer. The real thing, with sun shining and hot weather finally on everyone's doorstep. It's still not loo late for youngsters to catch up with the weather, try to get their suntans and some exercise through (he sport of bike riding. That day when the sun finally came out the pre-schoolers hauled out their three-wheelers, and made countless trips around the block. On their travels they were surprised to find that others their age were also on hikes. So after comparing speeds, and learning the revolutions per minute ot each other's wheels, the boys were set. The street became their dragstrip. The holes in the pave- ment were their outstanding obstacles. Their pit stops were made up of neighborhood driveways. Their audience the giggly girls and trees along the boulevard. There were four of them. They took a test drive down the street. And then they lined their bikes up. The fifth little boy who was without a trike, acted as drag- strip consultant, liner-upper, starter, tuner, judge and mediator In disputes. "Okay, fellas, this is the biggie of the year. Now line your bikes up. No funny stuff. You know the rules. No sticking your feet in the otter guys' way, and no All the sporters payed careful attention to number five's Instructions. "Okay, boys. When I yell go, you race down to the end of the block- Then race back. The first person In, is world champ of the So the little tikes boarded their bikes, and waited for the Just as the starter was about to say some two-wheel specialists came biking down the street. They saw the commotion, the intense excitement building up ID the racers, and the opportunity the pre-schoolers' had for a great championship test of skill. Amazed at the pre-schoolers' attempts, the bikers stood by the side of the road. The starter was about to shout when a group of ten- speed cyclists made their way up the street. They too noticed the line-up of trikers, the tension in the air, and saw a race was about to take place. So, since they couldn't pass up the opportunity and miss such a challenging competition they decided to watch the championship race. Along with the giggly girls, trees, and two-wheeled bikers, the ten-speed artists took a seat alongside the boulevard. Again the race was about to begin, just as motor cyclists made their way up the street, and joined the enlarging crowd. Homeward bound car drivers saw the scene, and joined in. Gardening mothers made their way from back yards to front lawns; swimmers on their way to and from local pools stopped to watch; as well as tennis players, golfers, hikers, joggers, liny sandbox players, and people just out in the fresh south- em Alberta air. The road was finally clear. The audience was waiting. The tension was climbing. Fans were cheering. The race was on. Ever since that race between the pre-schoolers, out door enthusiasts have been racing to get out into the fresh air and sunshine whenever the opportunity allows. By the way, I failed in my job as reporter once again. I forgot to find out the results of the race. L.P.

LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. PARAMOUNT THEATRE BIDG., IETHBRIDGE said Mr. Nilsson, "and have never bad anything to do with this sort of business. ''We all started from scratch; with my wife, my son and my- selt as pie makers." Although Mr. Nilsson declin- ed revealing any of the family pie-making secrets, he said they had "ways and means of making them (the pies) better and tastier than others can." Almost any type of pie can be found on the shelves, with the wall menu sporting both the fancy and the plain. Enough to delight all pie eaters. Included are four varieties of apple pie, Pecan, Banana Bav- arian, Cream Cheese, Pump- kin Chiffon, Blueberry Cream Cheese, Frosty Fudge and Fresh Strawberry, as well as others when in season. The trade of the shop is made up "mostly of people in town, university students, and tour- ists." "We've had pies ordered and packed to be sent up to Ed- said Mr. Nilsson, "and we've had them taken to Salt Lake and Vancouver." Mrs. Nilsson added, "It's all been real exciting, with people coming by on their way to and from Alaska, and even some from England." The recipes used to make the pies, said Mrs. Nilsson, are all quite common, although she adds and takes away, and often makes up her own for a spec- ial touch. Where Mrs. Nilsson learned to make good pies is still a mys- tery, with Mr. Nilsson com- menting with a shake of his head, "I can still remember her very first pie calenaa Iff oj-: local h appening Kiwanis Club of Green Acres will meet on Monday at p.m. in the Marquis Hotel.

Knowing how to get medical help if someone in the family is ill, injured, or a supply of needed medicine runs out or be- comes lost or broken, should be part of the plans. Anticipate such emergencies, says the Council on Family Health in Canada, and make proper preparations well in ad- vance of the trip. The Council, a non-profit or- ganization of drug manufactur- ers, suggests a first step of consulting a doctor about whom to contact if you become ill or injured.

IN YOUR LETHURIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE recommendation, a doctor can be found by contacting the local hospital or medical so- ciety where visiting. If travelling out of the coun- try and medical attention is needed, the hotel or nearest Embassy, Consulate or travel agency can give quick, accur- ate information. If medication is prescribed, ask that label directions be so translated that prescribed dos- age and frequency arc fully understood. Once it is decided where to go for vacation, ask a doctor what special immunization is needed. Diseases eradicated or con- trolled in North America may be fairly common in ot h e r parts of the world. Smallpox is only one example. While talking with the doctor, ask about taking a supply of essential medicines tor the du- ration of the trip. For a pro- longed journey he may suggest taking along typewritten pre- scriptions. In packing medicines, p u t them in a carton or box separ- ate from all other items includ- ing toiletries. Seal the tops of containers with transparent tape to pre- vent either leakage or spillage of tablets. Wrap each contain- er separately in layers of tissue or towel of sufficient thickness to prevent breakage. Keep all medicines in the ori- ginal containers and see that labels are undamaged and easy to read. Don't nu'x several kinds of tablets or capsules in one container to save space. And, says the Council, a com- pact first-aid kit can save trips to a doctor Tor small cuts and abrasions. Check the kit before leaving to make sure needed items are included. Seasoned travellers who wear prescription eye- glasses usually pack a second pair for emergencies. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "Did you make a clean getaway... or is the park department still looking for you." CHINOOK STATIONERS LTD. Now Open for Business LOCATED IN DOWNTOWN LETHBRIDGE AT: 319 7th Street South Phone 327-4591 an a of town Hints f or summer hair care Don't let the many pleasures of long, languorous summer days lull you Into hair cara laziness. Neglecting to protect hair from sun, wind, swimming pool chemicals and salt water could mean a head of straw and months ot conditioning treat- ments to restore natural oik, moisture and resiliency. Vera Price, hair care special- ist, says balmy breezes and hot winds are also hair enemies, even it you're not a sun wor- shipper. "They dry out the hair, leav- ing it susceptible to split ends and breakage. Chlorine can also damage lightened or over-pro- cessed hair severely, changing its texture and shade drasti- cally. Salt water can leave hair brittle, dry and ready to split under normal brushing and combing pressure." Here are some lips from Mrs. Price for keeping hair healthy all summer: Plan an attractive wardroba of hats and hair coverings, es- pecially if your hair's lightened or dry. Sun oxidizes hair color, often turning delicale blonde shades brassy. If you're crocheting your own bikini, whip up a scarf to match and wear it tied under your chin or wrapped around your head for today's high fa- shion look. Condition hair after every shampoo with a protein condi- tioner that combines instant conditioner and creme rinse properties. Distribute it well through the hair and rinse thoroughly. Afler swimming, always rinse liiir in clear water to remove all traces of chemically-treated pool water or salt water. Towel dry, finish drying with an air brush styling dryer and set with fast-curl instant hair- setter rollers for more body and bounce. Shampoo hair more frequent- ly in hot weather. Dust, perspi- ration and humidity combine with oily-hair buildup, hair spray and dirt to keep hair from feeling and lookiiig its shining best. Use a good quality shampoo laced with rich conditioners to restore the natural oil and moisture balance frequent shampooings can destroy.
