Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THI UTHMIDOI HERALD - Saturday, May 16, 1970 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor THINGS we can't understand about food prices . , . why 30 tea bags at one supermarket cost 43 cents; 60 tea bags, (same brand, same type) cost 77 cents; but 120 tea bags are $1.69. The same will hold true for some canned goods where you pay more per ounce when you buy a larger size . . . and if the price of green peppers isn't enough to send you muttering out of the greengrocer section, take heed-it's getting worse. The price of green peppers which usually runs about 39 cents a pound in the summer up to 59 or 69 cents per pound in the winter, has been 89 cents for longer than it seems necessary. I was informed the other day by a store employee that we can expect peppers to jump over a $1.20 per pound by next week. Tomatoes too are going to rise, says he. Well; when guests come for dinner-forget about barbecuing steaks or a sirloin tip done to a rare turn, just parboil the green peppers. Steak is cheap at that price. The high price is brought about by a shortage of peppers. There's going to be an even greater shortage in the Anderson household. Can't help it, Deb. You'll just have to eat your scrambled eggs without them. Green peppers do keep beautifully and the stores don't have a problem with wastage. Guess someone is buying the dratted things. You can even freeze green peppers in the summer, cut them up, wrap in tin foil, and add them to dishes such as pepper steak, stews, and scrambled eggs. They soften in freezing but the flavor is still delicious, and you only take out the amount you wish to use. One of the most soul-searching bits of poetry I've come across in a long time was written by a student at the Maples, the British Columbia Youth Development Centre at Vancouver. The Maples is a treatment centre for emotionally disturbed children and adolescents from all points in B.C. The title was Prison of Mind, and although the age of the author is not known it would not be over 16. I ask only to be left alone Just let me retreat to my world alone A world to where I long to be Push me and to my thoughts I'll flee Please just let me be, says my outer self For God's sake come and rescue me. Syd And the other poem: Fasten the safety belt on your mind The impact of reality kills Syd Did you hear what one bird said to the other bird? "What's that funny hat you're wearing?" "What's the matter?" said the other bird, "haven't you ever heard of Robin's hood?" Well, we try a lot.

Busy Life For Minister's Assistant Where He Goes She Goes By MARGARET LUCKHURST Herald Staff Writer When One Prairie Province discussions were drawing to a dose, it was business-as-usual for Eleanor Shaughnessy, special assistant to James Richardson, minister of supply and services. "Wherever Mr. Richard son or any member of parliament for that matter, the business of the constituency and of parliament goes along too," Miss Shaughnessy explained in an interview. "It's a frantic life but I enjoy it." Over the years Miss Shaughnessy has grown accustomed to political campaigning, sudden hops to far-flung parts of Canada, conferences of one nature or another and the responsibility for seeing that things go as smoothly as possible for her busy boss. "I was born and educated in Ottawa," Miss Shaughnessy said, "and like many girls i was naturally interested in the workings on Parliament Hill, so close to our lives. At one time I was private secretary to Air Marshall Lec-kie, and also Air Marshall Curtis. I moved with Curtis when he went to A. V. Roe Company in Toronto. 1 was there five years, when I was invited to return to Ottawa to work for Lester Pearson." Miss Shaughnessy explained that she did not come from a politically oriented family, but somehow Mr. Pearson and his Liberalism brought her into the fold. "You have to believe in what you're doing if you want to do a good Job," she said, "and Mr. Pearson was such a good man to work for that I just naturally became a pretty strong Liberal. "I worked with Mr. Pearson when he was leader of the Opposition and stayed with him after the Liberal government was formed. I went with him whenever there was an election, of course. "I have a variety of responsibilities on a campaign, such as booking accommodation for committees and press corps which sometimes runs to about Mothers Should Work For Peace Says UN Head SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Angie Brooks, president of the UN General Assembly, says the mothers of the world should create a "pax materna" to campaign for peace. Miss Brooks told 1,500 delegates to a convention of an antiwar group of women with children: "This is a time for* women to hold positions for policymaking. It is a time for women who bear children to decide if they want their children to die in a foreign land." ma* COOKING SPECIALTY - Mrs. Pearl Pavlik of Tro-janowko, U.S.S.R. shows some of the dried mushrooms she brought for her brothers with whom she is visiting in Lethbridge for three months. Dried mushrooms are a specialty in her village and are used as vegetables and seasoning. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes 80 or 90 persons." In her present position Miss Shaughnessy often spends days in Mr. Richardson's constituency in Winnipeg. "It's important to keep in touch with the grass roots," she said, "and we divide time between Ottawa and Winnipeg." What happens if her boss doesn't get re-elected? "Well, mine is a Privy Council appointment and not really a Civil Service job, so when the government goes out, I go out too. However, usually when one has spent a number of years in service, such as I have, there is some attempt made to find suitable employment for staff personnel." Of the OnePPE Miss Shaugb1 nessy said, "As an Easterner who knew little about the west until I became involved in political campaigns, I certainly think it will bring the problems of western Canada to the attention of the people in the east. We aire complacent down there, and likely to forget about what happens here; that situation certainly needs altering." Would she recommend her job to girls who wonder what to do with their lives? "Very definitely," she stated, "it presents unlimited opportunities for meeting people, seeing the country, and best of all, getting to know Canada." ELEANOR SHAUGHNESSY .... special assistant to James Richardson First Reunion In 44 Years Russian Visitor In City "I'm Just checking the f inanciaTpage...Porter-house closed up at $1.98." By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer Mrs. Pearl Pavlik, 69 years of age, from Trojanowka, U.S.S.R. is in Lethbridge visiting her brothers, Oscar Premachuk and Dr. F. T. Preston. It is their first reunion since they left Russia 44 years ago. Through Mrs. Premachuk's interpreta t i o n, Mrs. Pav 1 i k spoke about life in Russia and her opinion of Canada. When the family immigrated to Canada, she stayed in Russia to be married. She now lives with her husband, daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. This type of living arrangement is very common in the village and surrounding district, according to Mrs. Pavlik. Canada, she feels is a beautiful place where everyone is living in luxury. When asked what she thought of the traffic in Lethbridge, she replied, there are more cars in Moscow, they are bumper to bumper. The variety of food served in Canada, has astonished Mrs. Pavlik. Upon eating her first banana recently, she liked it but said the taste was different than anything she had eaten before. Electricity came to Trojanowka only last year. The young people are starting to buy television sets, but there are still no refrigerators and homes lack plumbing. Most families have their own livestock and eat a lot of dairy and poultry products, besides homegrown vegetables and salt pork. The only telephone in the village is located in the post office and is reserved for emergencies only. The first time Mrs. Pavlik ever used a phone was upon her arrival in Toronto when she talked to Mr. Premachuk in MARGARET MORRISON ANNUAL DINNER - Members of the University Women's Club are looking forward to their annual dinner meeting, to he. held at Sven Ericksen's Restaurant on May 25.

Mrs. Pavlik only brought a few clothes with her and enjoys shopping in local stores. She has purchased a wig and prizes it so highly that she even wants to sleep in it. "The villagers will think there are loose marbles in my head when they see me in a wig," said Mrs. Pavlik. She is afraid her daughter will like the wig so much that she will want to wear* it herself. Only the young women in the village go to the hairdressers. There are no hippies in Russia, she said because everyone has to work. Her husband is choirmaster and assistant pastor in the village church and she is assistant choirmaster.

Nursing Service Needs More Business Skills CALGARY (CP) -The high cost of nursing service is related to ineffective training of administrative - personnel, an administrator at the Red Deer general hospital said here. Ed McKnight, also a member of the federal task force on hospital inefficiency, said there has been a failure to apply sound business principles and modern management techniques to hospitals. He told the annual convention of the Alberta Association of Registered Nurses that many nursing service administrators are not prepared for their, positions and Lack an understanding of the inter-relationships in providing total health services. Universities offering nursing programs should review their courses to ensure sufficient attention is given management skills. Although nursing services take about 50 per cent of a hospital's personnel budget there was no objective standard to evaluate the optimum of nursing care needed. "This is certainly not conducive to cost-saving efforts." About 1,100 delegates to the convention were told the high turnover rate of nurses at some hospitals and health agencies was primarily related to the number of young, inexperienced nurses employed. Dr. Sam Mitchell of the University of Calgary said a study of employment patterns in Alberta also showed high rates of turnover were related to knowledge among the staff that the institute had a reputation for a high turnover. The study showed that nurses with 15 years or more experience would stay for a shorter time at an institution with a high turnover.
