Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Matched ring sets popular By JEAN SHARP ones set into the simple back- "Fashion has somethi Afk until af Tf'o fnohti By JEAN SHARP CP Womens Editor TORONTO in diamond engagement rings change, but slowly. North Americans are cur- rently showing a taste for matched sets that isn't shared in other countries. The wed- ding and engagement rings are carved exactly alike, and may be shaped to fit into one another. In some cases, stones are set into them so that when they combine, they look like one elaborate ring. A few rings are designed in a modern, chunky style with a single diamond or a few tiny Turncoats for travel NEW YORK (AP) The re- versible coat for the well-heeled traveller turned up bigger than ever in Pauline Trigere's fall collection shown recently. "We've tried to make ward- robe said Miss Trigere. "We all travel so much. The reversibles are lighter than ever." She was snorting a shorter hair-do and a blazer with her name written all over it. The main trouble with most reversible coats is that one side never looks quite right, but her coats are butter-smooth all the way around. The double-duty idea is not the latest rage on Seventh Avenue, but it should be. With prices going up, at least it's one way to get more use out of a wrap. A black coat reverses to red at about It's worn with black-and-red plaid dress. A red coat turns to orange. A light grey turns to dark grey, priced at about for coat, skirt and blouse. Like other designers, she's taken to the she showed a fluffy fox cape over a gray jumpsuit, cut with enough fullness and precision to avoid the skin-tight starlet look. ones set into the simple back- ground. But the favorites have open work or claw settings to show off a central diamond to best advantage. Ben Libman says the slow- ness of the change is partly tradition and partly possi- bilities. "Consider what a tiny area we have for design, it's about by Vi inch in which to con- centrate the design. But a subtle change is taking place constantly." He is a partner in Libman and Co., which manufactures Columbia diamond rings. MAINTAINS VALUE Mr. Libman says young couples should be careful about buying the design they want, but the diamond is what will give the ring its lasting value, sentiment apart. "By the time a ring has be- come unfashionable, the value of the gold and the stones will have gone up so much, that it will be as valuable as ever." He says the average dia- mond engagement ring today is in the to price range, with the average size of the diamond between 1-5 and 1-3 of a carat, or about 30 points. The carat is the unit of weight in diamonds; 142 car- ats make an ounce. It's fur- ther divided into 100 points. A 25-point diamond is the same weight as a diamond. Mr. Libman says he be- lieves Canadians may be learning to consider jewelry as an investment, though he doesn't believe they look at an engagement ring that way. WEAR MORE RINGS "As for the idea that people haven't much money to spend on rings. Rings are going up in price, but people are buying more units than ever before. "They are buying gold rings, larger rings, showing an interest in genuine rings that cost to rather than synthetic rings.

It's fashionable now to wear several rings. "People in other countries have already learned that money isn't always steady. So they buy jewelry, and they're not satisfied with the jewelry we have here. Most people want 18-carat gold. We use 10, 14 and 18. Pure gold is consi- rest is alloy." Majority says IUD effective NEW YORK (AP) The great majority of women who select an intrauterine device (IUD) for contraception find the method acceptable and effec- tive, Planned Parenthood said here. The Planned Parenthood statement on IUD use was is- sued in response to a request after the recent testimony in Washington by two physicians who were sharply critical of the IUD. They described it as the most dangerous type of con- traceptive now in use. "Over the Planned Parenthood said, "many thou- sands of American women served by the Planned Parent- hood Federation of America have selected the intrauterine device as their preferred method of contraception.' "When prescribed, inserted and managed by competent physicians. experience has shown that the large majority of these women continued to find the method acceptable and efficacious.' The organization emphasized that the IUD is not perfect. the group said, "all Planned Parenthood patients selecting the IUD are advised, as a matter of fed- eration medical policy, that the device is not 100-per-cent effec- tive; that expulsion may occur (particularly during the first three of the nature of possible side effects, and of the importance of follow-up exam- inations at recommended inter- vals.

The last few months of Watergate crises fol- lowing her October marriage to John Dean have been hor- rendous, she says. "But maybe we'll be able to relax a bit when this is Mrs Dean said in a doorstep interview at her home. "This'" is the scandal over the Watergate conspiracy and cover-up in which her husband is alleged to have played a ma- jor role. Mrs. Dean said she will ac- company the ousted White House counsel when he tells his version of the conspiracy to the Senate Watergate committee next Monday. "You can bet I'll be said the handsome blonde, who is Dean's second wife. He is di- vorced from his first wife. President Nixon fired Dean April 30. Leaked accounts of the 3'-year-old lawyer's story, told so far behind closed doors, in- dicate that he is likely to impli- cate Nixon in the Watergate cover-up. Mrs. Dean has been a pris- oner in her own home. Tele- vision crews have camped on her townhouse doorstep, some- i times around the clock, knock- j ing on the front door until mid- night and catching her again when she appears to collect the morning newspaper. Mrs. Dean, who appears to be in her early 30s. was calm and soft-spoken on what was to have been the eve of her husband's televised Senate Watergate committee debut. The hearings later were postponed for a week because of the state visit of So- viet leader Leonid Brezhnev. By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor In that well-known, slightly husky voice, Marg Osborne discusses the problems facing Canadian entertainers. Marg is spending two weeks in Lethbrdge, performing night- ly at the Miners' Club. "It's very much about time we started to upgrade our- selves." she asserts. "The 30 per cent Canadian content has been the greatest help to us." She points out that the Don Messer television program, long in third place on the Cana- dian Broadcasting Corporations popularity ratings, had a bud- get of only per show. "Even if you have a good- selling record in this country, it is for PR (public relations) work. Your royalties are so small. A hit record in the States and man, you're Opportunities are improving in the live entertainment field, she claims. "I've run into two shows that have come up from the which were not very successful, but "Canadian talent like Gordon Lightfoot is doing well. "It makes me feel so happy." Marg, who says she doesn't have a favorite song, began her career 26 years ago in Moncton, New Brunswick. Don Messer heard her sing at the local radio station and asked her to join his band. "It was all handed to me." she grins. "I was very lucky." Since the death of Don Mes- ser and Charlie Chamberlain, says Marg, the band! has stayed together. "Tommy Common has taken I Charlie Chamberlain's place and jCHCH. Hamilton, is deciding I whether to program the show under a different name, but producing much the same type of music. I "There's no head of the show as such. The show is done by the producer hiring the danc- ers, the singers and the band" as separate units. Marg usually tries to ar- range her tours during the sum- mer vacation and take her children with her. but this trip the youngsters were left be- hind. Between tours, she and her manager husband live in Sus- sex, a small New Brunswick town with their 19 year-old son, David, who starts college in the fall and plans to become a vet- erinarian, and daughter, Mel- ody, 13. a great believer in a woman staying busy once the kids have grown up and are in she explains. "Going out into the community keeps them young." That very youthful glint in her smiling grey eyes appar- ently comes from going out into the community to sing. "I love it! I just love she says. "You have to, in this business.' When she first began tour- ing, she used to fly, Marg ex- plains, "but there were just too many incidents circl- ing fogs storms Nowadays she likes to keep her feet on the ground, and travels by train or car.

I could live anywhere in Can- ada." And although she keeps a vaporizer steaming away in her hotel room because the dry air "does things" to her throat, Marg was bubbling over with enthusiasm about her trip west.
