In 1970 she became director of jstal personnel, gaining expe- ence of working with the ades unions which has proved valuable in so labor-intensive industry. 'She's very competent, clear id quick" said one colleague, verdict borne out by one union ader who described her as shrewd, extremely quick and determined." RESIDES OVER CHANGES As director of the ostal region, she is helping to eer the post office organiza- on out of its former existence s part of the civil service into businesslike corporation, ome postal services arc being xpanded, new ones added. Oth- rs will be streamlined. The London postal region Is .ready in the vanguard o f lechanization. Visitors from [any countries have inspected machinery which can pre- ort mail carrying postal code ddresses right down to the ery postman's walk on which is to be delivered. But the modern post office in ritain is more than just an ef cient purveyor of mail. Its ocal offices also function as ay-out points for million n payments to old age pension js, mothers of two or, more hildren, servicemen's wives and lower income group fami "ies. They dispense licences for tel vision, motor vehicles or dogs also provides- a cheap am ompetitive banking service. One of the new services o vhich Miss Fothergill is mos roud is Datapost, the guaran eed overnight door-to-door de ivery service, particularly use- ul for computer data, whic now extends beyond Britain t 15 cities in the United States.

Anne Gilbert of Montreal says you should try to approach :he subject before she is filled with misinformation. Miss Gilbert is director of consumer educaton for John- son and Johnson Ltd. She says last year she got letters, half of them from young girls asking questions they felt they could not ask anyone they knew. "We used to get letters from girls who were 13 to 15, now they are from younger girls. "Children start asking ques- tions at a very early age. I think mothers should read on the subject, get their own edu- cation so they can approach the topic in a way that the chile won't be afraid to ask ques- tions. "You can get books in li braries or book stores, we have a free booklet. "I think mothers should try lo remember how they felt, try to remember little girls' hang- ups and give them a lot of love. For some of the girls it's i big problem, everything seems so complicated. "If they have physical prob- lems or serious emotional dif- 'iculty, they should see the fam- ily doctor right away." Miss Gilbert says most of Jie letters she gets express normal fears and uncertainties. "My main objective when I answer those girls is to get them to speak to their mothers. I'll sometimes tell them their mothers are shy, too. "I also get some letters I get very upset about, I'm sorry to say, from girls at a very young age who tell me they have had sex experiences. 'I tell them to talk to doctor or their minister priest. They arc usually writ- ing because of fear of preg- nancy, and they don't realize the other possible problems. I try to tell them the conse- quences could be drastic, bul I'm not a social worker, anc we're not into sex education.'1 Miss Gilbert says there have been all sorts o! superstitions and taboos surrounding men struation.

By JUDE TURIC Hcralrl Staff Writer An inheritance of Victorian furniture and the restoration of a Victorian house, led Jeanne Koszta into the antique business. Mrs. Koszta, who has been In Canada for two and a half years, began her Trifles and Treasures shop 14 months ago, and since then has become well known in the Lethbridge area. "I am an antique said Mrs. Koszta, "and I belong to the antique dealers' association in (he east, but cannot say I'm licensed in Al- berta." She said the situation is uni- que to Alberta and Saskatche- wan where only a "second-hand store license is needed to sell antiques." Mrs. Koszta's business ven- ture into the world of anti- ques began as a disaster. Pripr to opening her shop, she bought many articles and stored them in a friend's up- holstery shop. "Five days she said, "the shop burned to the ground, I lost almost all of the mer- chandise, and had to start from While accumulating sufficient stock to open her shop, Mrs Koszta said she found many Americana pieces which were "peculiar to southern Alberta. "I found both Canadiana and .mericana in the slk aid, "but there's an awful lo if early American product, around. "This is mainly due to MIL leritage of those who settlec his area, and the Influence o Hormon settlers who from the States." Mrs. Koszta also said ther is a peculiarity among Alber :ans in the extremes of ledge concernnig antiques. "I've found either an exag geralcd idea of the value articles people' have, or n knowledge at all." "Things are sh said, "and more people are be- coming aware of owning va! ables, but they don't know It real value of the item. Mrs. Koszla said that man people also make the mistak of assuming an item which rare in one place will nece sarily be considered an antiqi in all places. "Many high priced articl Family Living Inch are in demand in Amer- a are still in use in he said. "A genuine said rs. Koszta, "by iuternationa tandards, is a piece that is ver 100 years old. "If it is genuine, it also be- omes duty free, and can be rought across all borders; pro- ided you can authenticate it.': In her work, Mrs.. Koszta makes use of an extensive cot- 2ction of books and price uides in order to authenticate nd to properly price a piece. All items in the shop are riced according to the guides nd many are labelled as tf her customers are not from the Lethbridge area, but ar from Calgary and Edmonton, nd "are collectors and deal- s." :'A collector will stop any- rhere and go miles out of his vay to get to an antique he said, "so location and f Ilic shop have little to do ith success." Mrs. Koszla said that, in gen- eral, "Canadians buy old, not and the reason for his was "they are not salur- ited with the literature the Americans get on the market." "People often make the mis- ake of buying an antique as an she said, "they hink they will make money on an item. "What they should do Is buy it if they like it; buy it to dec- orate your house; not as an in- vestment." Mrs. Koszta said there "are nany beautiful things in Leth- jridge" but few people who own them realize their worth. She said that many articles which have been labelled as Canadiana works "were design- ed for sheer good use, not for art's sake. There are much better things the name could be at- tached to; such as Medalta pottery, made in a Redcliffe pottery, and one which produc- ed many beautiful works." In the business, Mrs. Koszta said it "takes the right cus- tomer, at the right time, for the right piece to be sold." As a hint to the potential buyer, Mrs. Koszta said "don't bother to buy anything that's chipped, cracked or broken. Things aren't so scarce that you need to do that. "It'd have to be mighty rare, and I'd have to be mighty sure before I did that." BINGO MOOSE HAIL 1234 3rd AVENUE NORTH WEDNESDAY P.M.
