16 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, May 14, 1973 Bulk purchasing sensible practice By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) As meat prices continue to rise, more consumers are looking at the possibility of bulk buying meat and storing it in the freezer. Julius Fuss sells meat ei- ther way at his Warden Meat Market, and he says his bulk buying business has been in- creasing steadily. He said it takes a little practice to organize and use large quantities of meat effi- ciently, but a good butcher should be willing to give you advice on how to go about it. Mr. Fuss said you don't nec- essarily need a big freezer to do some bulk buying; a re- frigerator freezer will hold 25 to 60 pounds of meat, depend- ing on its size. He said you can keep beef and lamb that is properly wrapped in freezer paper for a year. "Bacon only for about six weeks. It gets dry, and a funny flavor. Anything smoked or cooked is good for only four or five, maybe six weeks. "You can keep chicken about six months." When you buy in bulk, you order a side of beef or a loin of beef or lamb or pork. The butcher cuts it for you to your specifications, wraps it in freezer paper and marks it. Mr. Fuss said: "A good buy now is a long loin of beef that gives you sirloin, porterhouse, T-bone and wings and a bit of mince off the trimming at a cost of a pound." The steaks bought individu- ally at Toronto retail prices cost about to a pound. "When a customer buys a side of beef for 89 cents a pound, he should figure there is about 20-per-cent waste, which brings the cost to a pound." The agriculture release says. "If you purchase a 300- pound side of Grade A-l or B- 1 beef at 80 cents per pound, with an average 25 per cent 'loss' in fat, bone and shrin- kage, you will have 225 pounds of usable cuts of meat at a cost of .80 times 300, which equals or per pound cf usable meat (225 Mr. Fuss said a side of beef will last a family of five about six months. It will provide various kinds of roasts and steaks, stewing beef and minced meat. "You tell me the sire of roasts you want, how many steaks you want in a package, and everything is put in freezer wrap and labelled. a list before you put the meat in the freezer and cross it off as you use it.

"There is in this country, in every major centre, large wait- ing lists of couples anxious and waiting to adopt babies. They cannot get these babies because they are being Dr. Heather Morris, a Toronto obstetrician and head of Alli- ance of Life, told reporters. Dr. Morris and about a dozen representatives of anti-abortion groups from across the country had met Prime Minister Trudeau and government offi- cials. The group presented a pe- tition bearing signatures to the prime minister, Justice Minister Otto Lang, Science Minister Jeanne Sauve and Health Minister Marc Lalonde. The group also presented the ministers with a brief, asking the government to grant full le- gal recognition to the unborn and to repeal 1969 amendments o the Criminal Code which lib- ralized abortion laws. Dr. Morris said there is "no uestion that unwanted babies aved from abortions would all >e adopted. The group's brief cited a umber of alternatives to abor- ion including extensive educa- ion on pre-natal life, coun- elh'ng for pregnant women con- idering abortion, special pro- prams for unwed mothers and igencies established to encour- age women to carry their >abies to term. The brief also calls for improved day-care fa- cilities and more low-income lousing to ease the financial burden of large families. Women may acquire legal abortions if a committee of doc- ors in a recognized hospital sign a certificate stating that ier health or life are endan- gered if forced to complete her nregnancy. Cancer immunity clue SAN DIEGO. Calif. (AP) Babies apparently are born with a strong cancer-fighting system that breaks down with age, says a resc-rchcr from Children's Orthopedic Hospital in Seattle, Wash. Researchers at the hospital found that "younger babies are easier to treat for tumors" caused by cancer of the adrenal gland, Dr. J. Bruce Bcckwith said in an interview. "We may have found a pow- erful clue to the immunity that keeps most of us from getting he said. "Our study 'jhows that very young babies j have a strong cancer defence 1 mechanism when they come out of the womb." With older children, he said, I "a block seems to form. The defences that let some of the joung babies kill the tumor cells run into interference from what we call a blocking anti- This blocking agent gets stronger in the older child, he said. The findings, which involved tests on hundreds cf children, were prepared for a meeting of the Pacific Association of Pediatric Surgeons.

TATEM District Home Economist Since yesterday was Mother's Day, I thought you might like to hear about the Meanest Mother in the World. I had the meanest mother in the While other kids got candy for breakfast, I had to have eggs, cereal or toast. When others had soft drinks and chips for lunch, I had to eat a sandwich. As you can guess, my supper was also different from other kids! My mean mother insisted on knowing where I was at all times. You'd think I was at work on a chain gang. She had to know my friends and what we were doing. She insisted if we said we'd be home" in an hour, that it be one hour, not longer. I am nearly ashamed to admit it, but she actually struck me, not once, but each time I disobeyed. Now you can begin to see how mean she really was. The worst is yet to come. I had to be in bed each night by nine and up early in the morn- ing. On Saturday I could not sleep until noon like my friends. So while my friends slept, my mother actually had the nerve to break the child labor law and make me work. I had to wash dishes, make beds, learn to cook and do all sort of cruel things. She always insisted on me telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth, even if it killed me, which it nearly did. By the time I was a teenager, she was much harder and my life became even more unbear- able. None of this tooting the horn of the oar for me to come running. She embarrassed me to know who my date was and he had to come to the door to get me. I forgot to mention that while my friends were dating at the mature age of 12 and 13, my old fashioned mother refused to let me date until the age of 15 and 16. At 15 it was only school function dates and that was maybe twice a year. My mother was a complete failure as a mother. I h a v e never been arrested or beaten by my mate. And whom do I have to blame for the terrible way I turned out? You are right, my mean mother. Look at all the things I missed: never got to march in a protest or take in a riot; and a million other things some of my friends did. She forced me to grow up into a God-fearing, honest, educat- ed adult. Using this background, I am trying to raise my own family. I stand a little taller and am filled with pride when my chil- dren call me mean. Because, you see, I thank God he gave me the meanest mother in the world.
