Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednnday. March 24,1971 The Homemaker BY ELIZABETH BARTMAN, DISTRICT HOME ECONOMIST Tame your .house for spring. It's around the comw. By this I mean, manage to get the most clean up and ren-ovaiting jobs around the house done now, so you'll have time to enjoy that beautiful weather which is just about here. Do you recall tliose other years when you were so efficient that it all seemed to just happen? Somewhere along the way you managed, perhaps un-consciously, but still you managed your time, energy and other resources to accomplish so much. You felt a great sense of achievement and satisfaction. Well, that's management - plaimmg or plottiDg your wits against the jobs to be done. It involves dear thinking about what is important and what isn't, to you. Sure, it takes time. But are you further ahead m d�mg your best without plan-nmg? It's doubtful. So, start your biggest or smallest effort by assessing the job, as they do in "big business". What work is actiially required? How long does it take to do it? What is the probable cost? Sit down and attack the list of jobs that simply must be done. If you have no idea how long any of those jobs take, then this is the tJme to realize that your time is valuable. . Find ways to reduce workmg hours. The secret lies in pre-thinMng and organizing your activities and materials. These are the four basic work rules to follow for general housework: First, decide what heeds your attention. It's cleaning and repair at this time of the year, isn't it? Oh, sure, your seeds and plants need to be ordered for the garden. But they can wait a little. Let the early morning light of these March days set you in' a cleaning spree. Secondly, assemble the tools needed to do the job. Don't use outdated tools or modes.:Lo(A into new ways; be critical cf the results and learn to improve your methods. Take for instance, washmg windows. That used to be done best with wet newspapers, so Aunt Susie used to declare! But now, put the papers away for recyclhig waste products and use that bandy spray glfp cleianer. It surely reduces Qie arm pressure of rubbing and without pruiter's mk on your hands. Watch your method because it goes faster when you use straight, overlapping strokes itather than drailar motions. Thirdly, dedde the best place to start and plan a logical pattern of work. What your family is currently dohig has a beariug on where you will put your best effort first. Also, when cleanmg a room you save time and motion by workmg methodically around it. Darthig back and forth across it is a "no-no". Progress in logical order is the way for you. Finally, dress for the job. Roomy stretchable attire and large carry-ail pockets save nerves and steps. The best of cleamng fashions is like a carpenter's - pants and apron with big pockets to bold doths, paper towels, little tools, and aids. My last word, but not lenst, is take time out to relax, smile and Stat again. 'It's in the book' Rule wiihmtt reason can he infuriating BETTER EDUCATED TORONTO (CP) - Today's volunteer is better educated and has more skills to offer than the one 20 years ago, says a woman who has worked "closely with volunteers, for more than two decades. Stella Peafee, who has just reUred irons the United Appeal for Metropolitan Toronto, says men and women now are volunteering their services in fields that weren't even considered open to "mterested citizens" when she began her career m 1949. By LOUISE COOK NEW YORK (AP) - Star ly-eyed with love, but practical, the young couple walked into the bank. "We'd like to open a diequ-Injg account," they fu-st told a guard, th�i a teller, then finally a third vice-president. "Just fill out these forms and sign here," said the new-lyweds* friend hi the world of hi^ finance, holdmg out his band for theh: money. "You know, of course," he said as an afterthought, "you won't be able to draw on this account for two weeks-while we check your credit." "But we're giving you cash," protested the irnio-cents. ""Hiere's no dieque to clear, no other accounts to be audited. Just money." "Sorry, it's a regulation." The young had just found an enemy that would reap- BahaVs celehmte New Year The Baha'i community of Lethbridge recently celebrated its New Year at the LetUwidge Friendship Centre; with about 50 members and guests in attendance. The celebration consisted of songs and dances representing several ethnic and radS groups in accordance with one of the tenets of the Baha' faith, the oneness of mankind. Songs and dances of the Philippines by Mrs. Emma Pestano; Mexican songs by Sr. Roberta Marinez of Mazatlan, MexJico; a Japanese dance by the loshi sisters and a west Indian dance by Miss Kelson of Cardston, were featured.

An enemy known as the "rale without a reason." The newlyweds went to an-otiher bank where they successfully opened a chequing account and managed to withdraw the money the same week. But when they tried the same thing with a savings account, they were told ' it would take seven banking days for a deposit to clear and until then they couldn't'take out theu- money. Harlan Filtz of Orlando, Okla., learned about the mysterious methods of government bureaucracy when he tried to get' rid of some unwanted gasoline. For 18 months, Filtz com- plained to state officials that gasolme was leaking into the well that provided his family's drinking water. The officials never did stop the leak, says Filtz, but they did tax hun for the gasoluie. And Filtz paid up: $6.58 tax on 100 gallons of gasoline, plus a fhie for not paymg the tax on time and interest because he was late. An official of the state tax commission, asked about the case, said it didn't matter how Filtz got the gasoline, "he still owes us the tax." Dealing with department stores is enough to turn the mildest housewife into the most militant revolutionary. ORDER LOST One New York woman, for example, called and ordered five pair of stockmgs, charged to her account. Three weeks later, still without the stockings, s Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was fascinated by your anti-pot stand. Why do you make a blanket indictment of pot and remam sUent about aid�l? You call pot a copout. Everyone knows that alcohol is the biggest copout of all yet you didn't even mention it. My parents are professional people. They are smart and successful. They get gassed nearly every weekend. Both my brother and I smoke pot. (We are 16 and 17.) We're hi a lot better shape on Monday morning after a pot party than Mom and Dad after a night of drinkmg. If you expect people to believe you, Ann Landers, you'd better be fair and tell the whole story. -A Voice From Now DEAR VOICE: Anywie who has the impression that I have been silent on the subject of alcohol must be deaf, dumb and blind. Booze has been one of my principal targets these past 15 years. In fact, I have been called the Jewish Carrie Nation. It is an undeniable fact' that alcobcd is a Horrendous problem to a great number of people. Unfortunately, alcohol has become a part of our social structure. Example: People automatically say, "Come over for a drink." Not "a visit" but "a drink". Ttisce are about eight million alcoholics in this country and another two million who are flying on pills. I don't want to add to that dismal picture another light million who are stoned on pot. If the older generation cops out with booze and pills and the younger generation cops out with pot', who is going to tm this country in fifteen years. * * * . Dear Ann Landers; Had our daughter lived she wmdd have been a month old todiay. A week after the funeral my husband and I went to the hlome of friends. Tlie hostess took me aside and asked, "How did she die?" I did not respond to her question. I was so upset I asked my husband to take me home immediately. We have not seen these people smce. A few days aigo I encountered a sales derk who had waited on me during my pregnancy. She asked excitedly, "What did you have, a boy or a gu:l?" I repUed, "A gurl." She hnmediately bombaided me with questions: "How much did the baby weigh? Who does she look like?" And so on. I fmally said, "The child did not siurvive," and walked away. The woman ran after me, grabbed my arm and started to tell me about her daughter's miscarriage. I was furious and did not try to conceal my anger. Now my relatives are writing to ask questions about my labor. Some have suggested that I sue the doctor and the anaesthetist. I'm at a loss to understand how people can be so cruel. Am I overly sensitive? It's torture to go through a pregnancy and then come home from the hospital with empty arms. To be faced with questions is more than I can bear. Please tell me how to deal with these inquiries. -Empty Nursery, Achmg Heart Dear Friend: You do not owe dods answers to their questions. Ignore them and change the subject. As for the mail hiquiries, drop them in your circular file. * � * DEAR ANN LANDERS: It's fuimy how often parents say to their teen-agers, "Listen to Ann Landers . . ." Well, there are plenty of times when the parents ought to listen to you. For example, a few months ago you wrote, "E you don't approve of the boy your daughter is gomg with let her know it, but don't knock the guy too hard or she might bang on-just to prove she has a mind of her own." I'm ia just that spot - going with a guy I don't care for anymore. He has shown me m lots of ways that he isn't the person I thought he was. I'd really like to scuttle hun but I'm ashamed to admit my folks were right. If they would just get off my back I'd dump him. Help me, Ann. Maybe they'll see this letter and wise up. -Stubborn Pride DEAR S.P.: Here it is and' I'll bet at least 10,000 parents will think this letter is intended for them. I hope yours aire among them. Good luck.  SAVAGE  CLASSMATES  HUSH PUPPIES Our Stockj Aro Now Complete For The "Easter Parade" BENEFIT SHOES The �tore with a competent, fully experienced staff; trained to fit oil feet correctly.

After, ex-plainmg her plight to the hosiery department, the de-liven' department and the service manager, she was told the matter would be turned over to adjustments and-she'd receive a report in 10 days. , "Why not just send me five more pah: of stockmgs?" she asked. "Sorry, it's a regjulation. It's got to go to adjustments," came the reply. Ten days later, she got a call telling her the ori^al order was lost and more stockings would be shipped. Five days after that, she received 10 pairs of stockmgs. Registerhig to vote can be more confusmg than keepuig track of the condidates. One fh^-time- registrant in New York City presented a college diploma as proof of literacy, and was told the only Idnd of diploma accepted was a high school one. "But doesn't it stand to reason that if I can read well enough for college I can read well enough for high school?" complauied the bewildered applicant. "Sorry," replied the re^-trar. "Our list of regulations . . . doesn't say anythmg about college." Abortion safety indicated in World Health study GENEVA (AP) - A World Health Organization study indicates an abortion performed at a hospital during the first three months of pregnancy may be less dangerous than givmg bhlh- But it says the mortality rate for abortions mcreases sharply in the second three months. Citmg statistics covering 2.5 million abortions in Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia during a 10-year period, the report said only 73 women died-^a mortality rate of three per 100,000 abortions. A computation for 6.9 million abortions in Japan during a six-year period endmg in 1965 gave a rate of four per 100,000. The report, issued Monday, compared those figures with a maternal mortality rate of about 20 per 100,000 pregnancies hi developed countries with good obstetric sendees, RATE HIGHER It also pobted out that in northern Europe, legal abortion in a hospital carries a substan- tially high mortaHty rate of about 40 per 100,000. One possible reason given for the discrepancy was that many abortions m northern Europe were performed in the second three months of pregnan(^ and on medical grounds while "m Eastern Eurdpe, almost all legal abortions are performed in the fu^ three months and the overwhelming majority of women undergoing such abor-ittons are presumably in good, health." No reliable statistics exist on deaths comiected with illegal abortions, the report said, but it estunated that in some large comniimities the mortality rate exceeds 1,000 per 100,000 illegal abortions.
