Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - THIUTHMIDOIHERALD - Wednesday, March 94,1971 BY EUJEABETH BARTMAN, DISTRICT HOME ECONOMIST Tame your house for spring: It's around the corner. By this I mean, manage to get the most clean up and renovating jobs around the bouse done now, so you'll have time to enjoy tint beautiful weather which is just about here. . Do you recall those other years when you were so efficient that it all seemed to just happen? Somewhere along the way you managed, perhaps unconsciously, 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 - planning or plotting your wits against the jobs to be done. It involves clear thinking about what is important and what isn't, to you. Sure, it takes time. But are you further ahead in doing your best without planning? It's doubtful. So, start your biggest or smallest effort by assessing the job, as they do in "big business". What work is actually 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 bow long any of those jobs take, then this is the time to realize that your time is valuable. . Find ways to reduce working hours. The secret lies in pre-thinking 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? Ob, 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 Don't use outdated tools or modes. Look Into new. #ayp; be critical of the results and learn to improve your methods. Take for instance; washing windows. That used to be done best with wet newspapers, so Aunt Susie used to declare! But now, put the papers away for recycling waste products and use that bandy spray glass cleaner. It surely reduces the arm pressure of rubbing and without printer's ink on your bands. Watch yput method because it goes faster when you use straight, overlapping strokes rather than circular motions. Thirdly, decide the best place to start and plan a logical pattern of work. What your family is currently doing has a bearing on where you will put your best effort first. Abo, when cleaning a room you save time and motion by working methodically around it. Darting 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-all: pockets save nerves and steps. The best of cleaning fashions is like a carpenter's - pants and apron with big pockets to hold cloths, paper towels, little tools, and aids. My last word, but not least, is take time out to relax, smile and start again. 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 Peake, who has just retired from the United Appeal for Metropolitan Toronto, says men and women now are volunteering their services in fields that weren't even considered open to "interested citizens" when she began her oar-r in 1949. in the book9 reason can be By LOUISE COOK NEW YORK (AP) - Star-ry-eyed with love, but practical, the young couple walked into the bank, "We'd like to open  chequing account," they first told a guard, then a teller, men finally a (fatal vice-president. "Just fill out these forme and sign here," said the new-lyweds' friend in the world of high finance, holding out his band for their 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 innocents. "There's no cheque to clear, no other accounts to be audited. Just money." "Sorry, it's a regulation."

The celebration consisted of songs and dances representing several ethnic and racial groups in accordance with one of the tenets of the Baha'i faith, the oneness of mankind. Songs and dances of the Philippines by Mrs. Emma Peatano; Mexican songs by Sr, Roberta Marinez of Mazatlan, Mexico; a Japanese dance by the Ioshi sisters and a west Indian dance by Miss Helson of Cardston, were featured.

An enemy known as the "ride without a reason." ITne newlyweds went to another bank where they successfully opened a chequing account and managed to withdraw the money the same week. But when they tried tiie same thing with a savings account, they were told - it would take seven banking days for a deposit to dear and until then they couldn't take out their 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 gasoline was leaking into the well that provided his family's drinking water. The officials never did stop the leak, says Filtz, but they did tax1 him for the gasoline. And; FUtz paid up: $8.58 tax on, 100 gallons of gasoline, plus! a fine for not paying, 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 bodvuc, "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 stockings, charged to her account. Three weeks later, still without the stockings, she Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was fascinated by your anti-pot stand. Why do you make a blanket indictment of pot and remain silent about alchol? 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 in a lot better shape on Monday morning after a pot party than Mom and Dad after a night of drinking. If you expect people to believe you, Ann Landers, you'd bettor be fair and tell the whole story. -A Voice From Now DEAR VOICE: Anyone 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 alcohol 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". There 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 run this country in fifteen years.    Dear Ann Landers; Had our daughter lived she would have been a month old today. A week after the funeral my husband and I went to the home of friends. The 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 since. A few days ago I encountered a sales clerk who had waited on me during my pregnancy. She asked excitedly, "What did you have, a boy or a girl?" I replied, "A girl." She immediately bombarded me with questions: "How much did the baby weigh? Who does she look like?" And so on. I finally said, "The child did not survive," 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, Aching Heart Dear Friend: You do not owe clods answers to their questions. Ignore them and change the subject. As for the mail inquiries, drop them in your circular file. DEAR ANN LANDERS: It's funny 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, "If you don't approve of the boy your daughter is going with let her know it, but don't knock the guy too hard or she might hang on-just to prove she has a mind of her own." I'm in just that spot - going with a guy I don't care for anymore. He has shown me in lots of ways that he isn't the person I thought he was. I'd really like to scuttle him 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 are among them. Good luck. 1  SAVAGE  CLASSMATES  HUSH PUPPIES Our Steekt Ara Now Complete For The "Easter Parade" BENEFIT SHOES The store with a competent, fully experienced staff; trained to fit all feet correctly.

After, explaining her plight to the hosiery department, the delivery 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 pair of stockings?" she "Sorry, it's a regulation. It's got to go to adjustments," came the' reply. Ten'days later, she got a .call telling her the original order was lost and more stockings would be shipped. -Five days after that, she received 10 pairs of stockings. Registering to vote can be .more confusing than keeping track of the condidates. One first-time- registrant! in New York City presented a college diploma as proof of literacy, and was told the only kind 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?" complained the bewildered applicant. "Sorry," replied the registrar. "Our list of regulations . . doesn't say anything 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 giving birth. But it says the mortality rate for abortions increases sharply in the second three months. Citing 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 ending 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 in developed countries with good obstetric services. RATE HIGHER It also pointed out that in northern Europe, legal abortion in a hospital carries a substan- tially Ugh mortality rate of about 40 per 100,000. One possible reason given for the discrepancy was that many abortions in northern Europe were performed in the second three, months of pregnancy (and on medical grounds; while "in Eastern Europe, almost' all legal abortions are performed in the first three months and the overwhelming majority of women undergoing such abor-itons are presumably in good health." No reliable statistics exist on deaths connected with illegal abortions, the report said, but it estimated that in some large communities the mortality rate exceeds 1,000 per 100,006 illegal abortions.
