Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Junn 11, 1970 THE LtTHBRIDGE HERALD 17 ers DEAIl ANN LANDERS: I have just gone through HELL Week. I wish 1 had written to you and asked for advic two months ago, but I thought I could handle it. Now am writing in the hope that you will print my letter, along with some answers. Maybe you can help the graduating clas. of 1971. Do you realize that one-third of all the students in our high schools and colleges are the children of divorced parents? We are allowed to invite a limited number relatives to graduation services. Six, to be exact. So whc does a person invite? My mom has been married three times and my dad is on his fourth wife. I like my real dad very much but Mom doesn't even want me to mention his name. Mom's secom husband isn't allowed in our house, but he pays for my support, so I feel I owe him something. Mom's present hus- band is a creep but I have to treat him like he's my father because he is married to my mother. As if this isn't enough, both grandparents on my mother's side have remarried so there are several extras there. Tc put it in a nutshell, Ann, I have three "fathers" foi "mothers" and so many step grandparents I can't count 'em I was such a wreck trying to decide who to invite to mj graduation that I asked the dean to mail the diploma and I didn't even go to my own graduation. I realize now it was a dumb solution. What should have done? Now DEAR NOW: You should have invited the peple you fell most warmly about and made no excuses. Parents who pu1 their children in such a difficult position because of multiple marriages should keep their own wishes and suggestions to themselves. DEAH ANN LANDERS: I am a middle-ager badly hooked on cigarettes, but I am trying doggedly to free myself of this wretched habit. I am working out my own system of cutting down since I am not able to attend the Stop Smoking Clinics as some of my friends have done. At the moment I have reduced my smoking to about half. Will I be able to lessen the number gradually until I get down to zero? I am doubtful that I could quit suddenly after so many years of smoking from two to three packs a day. At times I crave a cigarette so desperately, I can think of nothing else. Do the authorities recommend the tapering off method! How did you stop? To Unhook DEAR WANT TO: I never had to stop because I never started. And for the benefit of you teen-agers out there who think it's smart to smoke, let me assure you it's just about the dumbest move you can make. Most authorities feel the cold turkey approach is best, particularly when the dependency is complex, as It seems to be in your case. While it might be agony for several days, those who can tolerate it have a better chance of kicking the habit permanently. Smokers who attempt to quit by tapering off usually cut down for a while but they creep back gradually. Before long they are once again enslaved by the filthy habit coughing, Backing, burning small holes in everything, fouling the air, staining their teeth and fin- gers and enhancing their candidacy for lung cancer, emphy- sema and heart disease. Industry, Govt., Consumers To Attend Meet Oct. 20-21 By GLENNIS ZILM SASKATOON (CP) The program for a unique meetini of industry, government anc consumer representatives was approved by directors of the Consumers' Association of Can- ada. The meeting, to be callec Consumer Congress 1970, will help the three groups define areas of responsiblity in con- sumer protection and informa- tion, said congress chairman Glenora Slimmon of Winnipeg. Mrs. Slimmon said the Con- sumers' Association had de- cided to sponsor tlie meeting because it was aware of a lack oi effective communication be- tween the three groups. "For example, we know there is much information available from the government and industry that just isn't get- ting to the she said BINGO Scandinavian Hall 12th SI. "C" N.

"Also, industry hasn't man- aged to communicate to gov eminent some of its own con- trols and there is a possibility that expensive government leg islation might duplicate some of these efforts." Lack of enforcement reguta tion prevents the Canadian Standards Association from calling back items that show up as defective after testing, however, Mrs. Slimmon said "Who should supply the extra police force to have these items withdrawn from the market? Should it be government or in- The meeting, which is the first of its kind ever to be held in Canada will also be unique in its selection of consumer representatives, Mrs. Slimmon said. The Consumers' Association will select the representatives, but they will not all be asso- ciation members. "We want to make an effort ;o involve a nationwide cross section of consumers, including old age pensioners, university students, mothers on welfare." Fees to industry and govern- ment representatives will off- set costs of bringing the con- sumer groups to the meeting, she said. The congress is set for Mon- :real on Oct. 20-21.

Just wiiat is grading? It's clas- sifying an egg for exterior appearance a 'spotless' shell with no rough, ridged area. It's also the interior quality, screened by 'candling' when every egg passes over a high intensity mercury vapor lamp. A Government approved grader scientifically measures the mandatory air-shell size for Grade A. And size has no hearing on the quality of eggs! It came as no great surprise to me that DOMINION STORES, who have the country's largest egg grading station, sell about 108 million of their Grade 'A1 eggs cadi year to Ontario APPOINTED Linda Pic- kell of Edmonton has been appointed as co-ordinator of marketing programs for the Alberta Department of Agri- culture effective July 1, Pre- mier Harry Strom announced recently.

Brechin, chair- man of the consumer studies committee, said in her report the association had been able to place consumer opinions on packaging of food products be- fore food processors in a most effective way. Another major complaint to the association concerned ad- vertising and sales promotions, with "cents off" deals and credit cards causing the mast annoyance, Mrs. Robinson said. Mrs. Brechin told delegates tile association is continuing its efforts to ban mailing of unsoli- cited credit cards and praised moves by OnUirio and British Columbia governments to legis- late against such mailings.
