Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE VETHBRIOGE HERAID Monday, Match 12, 1973- Ba rgan TORONTO (CP) Sonic shoppers unhappy with prices in supermarkets and department stores are setting their own dis- count prices. Establishing the new discount price is a simple matter. The shopper takes a price tag trom one item luicl attaches it to an- other witii a higher value. If lie's caught, the bargain may be expensive for the dis- honest shopper. It may give him a criminal record. But catching him isn't easy, says a security investigator for one store. "They can say the price was marked that way when (he found the item on the he said. "Unless our people ac- tually see the switch take place, there is little we can Experienced cashiers who know prices of all items in tlie store are the best weapon against the price switcher, secu- rity experts say. "That's a big order in a de- partment store handling thou- sands of items bnb some of our girls are a little short of mirac- ulous in this said one store executive. hunting This new kind of bargain- hunting has nourished wilh the emergence of the discount house and other high-volume outlets where cashiers often aren't familiar with all the prices. Security people say most of those caught have "more than enough money" with them to pay the regular price for the ar- ticles on which they have switched price-lags. Stores are hcefing up their se- curity lo cul down on unin- tended bargains, often using hidden cameras, and are more willing to prosecute.

Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was inspired to write this let- ter when I read the .com- monts of tiie complaining mother who said her teen-age daughter is "charming, gra- cious sweet and easy-going but at home." I am no longer a teen-ager am 20 now but I would like to cite the problem in re- verse. It's my mother who is charming, gracious, sweet and easy-going to every- one except her immediate family. At home she is for- ever griping, complaining, criticizing, and acting all- arcund obnoxious. This is not my imagination, Ann. My father and brothers are also aware of her split personality.

It seems these two women had exchange books over the years and she went to the home of her friend's daugh- ter the day after the funeral and asked if she might browse through her mother's library and take the books that belonged to her. The an- swer was a hard set-down from the daughter and a clos- ed door in her face.

TORONTO (CP) -Stenog- raphers frustrated with the tedious chore of correcting typing errors can thank Inter- national Business Machines of Canada Ltd. for attempting to make tlieir jobs a little eas- ier. The company today in- I reduced a new typewriter which can make errors "dis- appear" on original copies with a simple press of a but- ton. The new machine allows secretaries to type all thicr work at "rough draft speeds" without the need of time-con- suming erasures. The t y p e w r i I e r s are equipped wilh two one a conventional black rib- boa and another which 'lifts' the ink off the paper in case of error. A secretary will simply have to back-space, hit a cor- rection key and the incorrect character will disappear. Although carbon copies will still have to ba corrected in the usual manner, IBM. says the original document will look flawless. "This means that you can now use letterheads and enve- lopes that might ordinarily have to be discarded because of poor appearance caused by typing corrections.' Machines equipped with, the new system will cost about 570 extra. Another attraction is a "dual pitch" control which will allow stenographers, at fhc push of a lever, to type 10 or 20 characters an inch, whichever is more venient.
