Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I don't mind Ihe fact thai when a husband's parents become old and sick, he expects his wife to cater to them, nurse them, help tlieni, corr-forl them, do whatever lifts in her power to make their last days easier. Any wife worthy of Uie name will do cverytliing she can for her in-laws. But when HER parents get sick and old, it's a different slory. The husband curses under his breath, criticizes them, resents ami argues about Ihc time and money and energy sho is spending on her old folks. The wife is caught like a rat in a trap lorn between her obligation to her parents and her responsibilities to her husband. This is the dilemma faced by women of every economic, intellectual and social strata. It's time of life when a wife finally learns what a skunk her husband really is. ff your column is, as you claim, a true reflection of life as people live it, why don't you print some of the hundreds of letters you must receive on this subject? Or are you interested only in key-hole peeping, fun and games and a Hltle polite sex? S. J. of DEAR MRS. R.: Of course, some husbands feel as yours does but there are also thousands of husbands who are wonder- ful to their wives' parents. My own husband, for example, adored my parents and treated them with great consideration. One cannot get a true reflection of life by looking in the mirror. What you see my friend, is not life, but a reflection of your own misery. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I work for the American Cancer Society. My office faces the street and I can look out the window and see people as they do their stopping, hurrying from one place to another. During the holidays I saw hundreds of parents laden down with expensive toys for their children. They wanted to make their youngsters happy. How strange and ironic that these same parents who would probably spend their last cent on a gift don't realize that the best gift, a parent can give a child is liimself his time, love and understanding. When this is missing, no other gift can take its place. How many parents who smoke have been asked by their children to slop, yet they refuse. How nvany of these parents will die prematurely from lung cancer caused by cigarettes? If tlrjse parents have no regard for their own lives they might at least courtier what it means to their children. Thanks, Ann, for Jelling me say something that has been on my mind for a long time. S., Waukesha, Wis., Unit, American Cancer Society DEAR L, S.: You took the words out of my mouth. Thanks for writing.

(AP Wirephoto) Mondoy, March 13, 1972 THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Food detective checks on age of eggs EDMONTON (CP) When Michael Slilcs goes food shop- ping in a supermarket, he's more than just discerning and careful he's downright cu- rious. He's curious about -such things as the age of the eggs being sold, the values con- venience foods offer, the qual- ify of meals and the kind of orange drink that offers Ihc best taste at the lowest cost. Dr. Stiles, who has a PhD In food microbiology from the University of Illinois, teaches food safety and hygience and customer acceptance in the school of household economics at the University of Alberta. He and his students are in- volved in various kinds of re- search that have a special in- terest for consumers. For example, they discover- ed that eggs sold In supermar- kets have, on the average, an equivalent age of five weeks when they are sold. "This isn't necessarily the ac- tual age of the eggs. Jl may include increased aging due to improper handling. But in mod- cm marketing, you should ex- pect better than that." COMPARE I'HICES In another research project, students have been pricing ff! different items at various city stores every week for more than a year. They come up with comparative charts that Dr. Sliles uses when he gives lalks to consumers, showing them where they can shop to save money. Students also are checking the quality of potatoes in dif- ferent stores and doing re- search into how these are stored and carod for. As well, Dr. Stiles and students are doing studies on consumer acceptance of beef and pork and comparing shop- pers' altitudes in Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. "We're trying to set up an assessment of t h e quality of meat being sold in the market place, although we don't knov? yet just how this will be he said. "I w a s p'easantly surprised when I started teaching here. Tlrere is a real application of what we're interested in to ev- eryday life and we cau make a real contribution."

Increase in unit pricing WASHINGTON (CP) Nei- ther as costly as feared by the food stores, nor as handy as hoped by the bargain-hunters seoms to be ttie word here on unit pricing. But the system is becoming an ever- day feature across the United States anyway. Unit pricing is supposed to make it easy for shoppers to compare values among con- flicting brands and sizes on grocery shelves, by providing figures on the cost for each ounce or oEher unit of a prod- uct, However, both retailers and consumer representatives in the U.S. are beginning to agree that hardly any shop- pers use the service to a sig- nificant degree. And those who get the most benefit from unit pricing are not Ihe shoppers with low budgets from the inner city or the rural backwater. Rather they are the well-educated and comparatively wealthy buyers xvho already know how to get the most from a gro- cery dollar. Despite the drawbacks, tho system is spreading, "The whole ball game has changed in the last an official of the National Asso- ciation of Food Chains said recently, "Stores that com- plain about the cost of unit pricing install it because their competitors have it and they can't afford to balk at the cost." A series of research studies on unit pricing has recently been issued by Consumer Re- search Institute, Inc., a Wash- ington-based group whose fi- nancing comes mainly from the food trade. One study asked shoppers about their priorities in select- ing a store. It discovered that a good meat department was on top of almost everyone's list, fol lowed by cleanliness and helpful employees. Unit pricing was far down among priorities. Another study found that shoppers don't switch brands after unit pricing is installed, although they sometimes move to a larger and cheaper size in the same brand. And among shoppers who changed from one store to an- other in the year prior to (he study, there were as many who switched away from stores with unit pricing as there were shoppers who went to unit-price markets for the first time. Couturiers successful in Britain LONDON (AP) British cou- ture has lakcn a new turn. Up.
