Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 - THI inHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, March 13, 1971 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor Learning a country's economical balance JUNK MAIL is a nuisance. Junk mail is also a ^ cross which we must bear in this saleshappy gimnnicky world. Apply for a subscription to one magazine and it's like opening a pandora box to the world. You'll be beseiged by offers for children's books, nature books, books on psychic phenomena, records, cookbooks, and soft cover mags till they're coming out your ear. The biggest -uninvestigated cause of air pollution is the oral exercises in which people Mke to indulge when they're cross, unhappy, inconsiderate, mean, miserable and just plain stupid. The second, according to one young man who bums the garbage (carefully, neatly, and following city regulations) is the number of envelopes and brochures which no one wants, reads, or sometimes even opens. Advertising leaflets and magazine subscription forms are a legitimate way of doing business, and one doesn't have to do more than drop the unopened mail in file 13. One complaint from consumers, according to the consumer service and information branch of the department of consumer and corporate affairs is get-tuig books and-or records which were not wanted in the first place. Sometimes the customer has cancelled his subscription or due to a clerical error the merchandise is still coming. A particularly objectionable practice is to send articles to people who have died and sending them C.O.D. It is against the law to send any article C.O.D. which has not been ordered or requested. There is no law in Canada at present regarding the legality of sending unsolicited c r ed i t cards through the mail. The Consumers Association of Canada has been pushing for this law to be passed as has been done in several U.S. states. * * ? Above all, keep in mind that if you receive such a card, and do not want it, cut it in haK before you throw it out. Don't leave it lying around, and don't throw it away without defacing it because you, your very own self, are liable for each and any purchases made with that card when it is in your name. The same holds true for cards which you have used at one time and no longer use. Destroy. Destroy. If a credit card is lost, notify the company. You can even call, collect if you must call a company out of town, such as is the case vidth gasoline companies. This protects you from being charged in case it's used by the thief, or whoever finds it. Any individual has the privilege of refusing mail. Just mark it refused and send it back to the Post Office where they wHl take care of it. It would make an extra load on the postie to send it all back, but perhaps a little pressure from the receiving end may help to eliminate much of his mail carrying in the long run.

HARVEY JOHN - 10 years CAROL ANN - Vh years BRIAN SVEN - 4 yeors Children of m.. AND MRS. J. WICKERS LETHBRIDGE Paterson school; Bill Weadick, Dorothy Gooder school; Mrs. Clarice Bennison, St. Patrick's school, and Mr. Fulwiler. The game, which is called Trade Crises, is suitable for ages 8 to 12 years, and an ideal number of 36 students can play. However, as few as 21, or as many as 60 students may play but, it tends to become cumbersome. The purpose of the game, according to Mr. Fulwiler, is to serve as an introduction to trade on an intemational scale, to cause interaction among the students, to cause independant tbinkmg as well as the formu- lation of a group idea, and to help .students realize problems faced by nations in a "real-life" situation. The students are assigned to countries such as Goodland, EaistlBind, Westland, Huiterland, and so on. Each country has six members of wMdi there is an ambassador, a chief executive, an economic advisor, and communications ministers. E a c h country is aa^gned an economy either rich, poor, or anythmg between the two. The job of the country's offi-ciails, is to trade with the other natioiis, thereby improving its gross naitiofnial product. Responsibilities are designated as follows: Chief executive-final decision maJcer for the country; Ambassador - carries out (he trading wishes of the country; Economic Advisor - helps to plan the nation's economy; aiid Consmunioations Mmister - cairies trade proposals and trading decisions back and forth between nations. The ideal eoojiomy, according to the rules of the game, is to have four imits of agriculture, four units of oil, four units of manufactured goods, four units of raw materials, and seven million dollars. Perioddcally during the trad- bg sessions, the teacher will call for a halt in trading, and will 'give each coimtry a slip of paper on which a crisis is prmt-ed. The country must then deal with this crisis before the recommencement of trade, ITbe crises come in the form of amounts whith must be paid out of the country's treasury, units of material which must be paid, or even, units of material or monetary sums which are paid to them. After the crisis is resolved, the country must take a look at its econoniy again, and set a new objective. After this is cortipleted, trade is resumed. The teacher, according to the rules of the game " iiay or may not carry on with the game" after re - evaluation of goals. "If the game is to be stepped, each country will compare his 'goal' with his acttral achievement." "We try to get the top students m the poorest country," says Mr. Fulwiler. "In this way each student is called upon bo act and think for himself according to his or lier ability."

Their female counterparts consider it slightly less important for men.
