Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, May IS, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Cheap beef H What looks like a great deal on meat is a billboard sporting a sign that's a trifle misleading. The price of beef hos fluctuated so rapidly that a Vancouver butcher hasn't been able to keep up with the changes. Casting an unbelieving eye on the price is Renate Scharf. Ann Landers FOIV's changing to meet demands DEAR ANN LANDERS: I didn't agree with your state- ment that "some boozers go to bars not so much for the booze, but for the companion- ship that is missing at home.'' As a woman who has been married to one of the prime boozers of all time. I can tell you the truth is that these men want DRUNKEN com- panionship. A sober wife won't do. Shortly after our marnage my husband began to have a drink before dinner. Then he started to have a few drinks after dinner as well. Before long he was getting a head start on the way home. A few months later he was showing up for dinner two hours late making very little sense. When I told him I'd appreciate it if he'd come home on time so we could down and have a few drinks together, he called me "a good sport." But it didn't work. He'd get pie- eyed and I'd get sick to my stomach. So I quit it. He started to go to the bars after work again and I de- cided to take one more shot nt it. I agreed to meet him wherever he said alter work and be a "companion.'' That lasted two weeks. I decided I didn't belong in a bar. I had a home, a family to raise, and my pride I couldn'l live like that. 1 took family counseling, joinod AI- DE AR ANN LANDERS: Now that, society has taken a permissive attitude toward hard core pornography it seems that whenever I go to the mailbox there i.s some dirty thing that I have to tear up so my children don't see it. I don't know how in heav- en's name I got on these mail- ing lists. I have never sent for anything except a s e e d catalog and kitchen gadgets. I have no interest in this trash and I don't want it coming to our home. Mind you. I have no desire to de- prive those who enjoy looking at garbage but why must peo- DKAR ANN LANDERS: Mv husband and 1 are in our 1; 40s and we have always Y a good relationship. We enjoy each other's company, both In and nut of the bed- room. We looked forward to the day when we would be free nf the of rais- ing children, so we could travel and be ers" again. Well, now that the time is here 1 am deeply disappointed. Our j-ex life has suddenly dwindled down to nothing And I do mean noth- ing About six months ago I began to think perhaps he was seeing someone else, but now I'm sure lie is completely Anon, and this is what I learned" You can't control a drinker by changing your lifestyle to match Joining him won't help him stop drinking. It will only encourage him to keep it up. It's not your iault that he drinks. He'd like you to think it is. but don't fall for it. He didn't leave the house be- cause vou had a fight He PICKED a fight so he'd have an excuse to leave. If he tells you he isn't in- terested in sex because you're lousy in lied, don't believe it. A boozer can't perform 90 per cent of the time. It's easier to blame it on you than to admit the truth. Don't hid the liquor. Don't pour it down the sink and beg him to quit drinking. Hand him his hat. open the door and tell him goodbye Maybe he'll continue to drink and end up in the gutter. Or he just might hit bottom and de- cide to save himself. What- ever he decides, let him do it on his own If you can't walk away from the mar- riage, walk away from his drinking. Make it HIS prob- lem, not yours. Of Experience DEAR VOICE I hear you loud and clear. Your letter was twice as long as most I print in this space, but it was too good to cut and I am using every word. pie who don't want it be sub- jected to this invasion of pri- vacy?

Please check with your medical au- thorities and let me know Thanks. Ann. The Big Q DEAR Q.: There is indeed a possibility that the hyper- tension medication is respon- sible for your husband's im- potence. He should discuss this with his doctor so he will have a good understanding of what has happened to and why and in turn ex- plain it to you. OTTAWA (CP) Health care is changing and the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) is changing with it because along with many of the recent im- provements have created new problems, Ada McEwen, VON national director, said here. "In spite of over-all improve- ments in health care, we know that not all Canadians have benefitted equally for one rea- son or another, be it limited fi- nancial resources, geographical location, social discrimination or lack of knowledge of avail- able services.'' she said in her report to the associations an- nual meeting. "The lengthening life span has greatly increased the num- ber of persons in the older age group. We are now concerned with providing new services that will allow these persons to Imd satisfaction, comfort and enjoyment in these added years Miss McEwen said that al- though the number of hospitals and health care workers has in- creased under provincial health insurance plans, people now complain of "fragmentation of services and lack of continuity of care, improper management, poor utilization, lack of ability to control costs, too much em- phasis on treatment services and too little on preventive services." The challenge for the 75-year- old order now is to find ways of dealing with these problems, she said, we have in the past NEW ROLES ACCEPTED She outlined some changes her organization made between and 1972. For example, the visiting nurses now see fewer mothers and babies but are pro- viding more home medical treatment snd surgical care such as changing of dress- an older-age group. "The decreasing involvement in the maternity and new- born field is net indicative of 2 decrease in concern for the needs of these patients but re- sults from a gradual transfer of this service to official agencies.'' As well, many VON nurses now are discussing the idea of family planning and methods of birth control with those patients who want this, Miss McEwen said. "A newer program that brings our nurses in contact with healthy individuals is the paramedical examinations for insurance companies. This pro- gram, which began on a small scale in 1970 now is provided by 82 branches to 28 companies." Nutritional counselling, health counselling to adolescents and senior citizens at meetings, regular routine preventive visits tto senior citizen homes, working with doctors from their offices in "extended roles" as phys- cians assistants are all pro- grams being tried by the VON across Canada, Miss McEwen told the meeting's 200 dele- gates. "The number and variety of new programs, too numerous to report on in detail, indicate that the VON has not lost the spirit of innovation that has characterized its history." STILL STRESSES HOME CARE The VON, which began as a home-visiting order, was still developing new home-care pro- grams But this area now was attracting interest from public- run schemes because govern- ments were concerned about the rising costs of hospital care. "The VON has always been convinced that the home is a good place to provide cara to people, not because it is cheaper, although that is ail im- portant consideration, but be- cause it allows people to be cared for in familiar surround- ings which are to re- covery and rehabilitation." The annual reports of Miss MicEwen and President F. W. Troop of Ottawa show that the visiting nurses made more than i 1 4 million visits to 103.400 per- sons during 1972 I Wool prices OIL increase SEE THE AMAZING VORWERK The cleaner thot will revolutionize house cleanf.q FAIRFIELD APPLIANCE SERVICES LTD. 1244 3rd AVE.

Mr. Breger, president and general manager of Yorkshire Importing Co. Ltd., said in an interview the higher prices are (he result of a world short- age of raw woo! ".Japan, faced with the dim- inishing value of its stocks of United States currency, decid- ed to put, its assets into raw materials such as wool and iron ore, whose value is in- creasing." he said. This resulted in Japan buy- ing up 75 per cent of the Aus- tralian woo] market where 85 per cent of the world's wool supply originates. Mr Breger said the consum- er has1 not felt the bite yet as rlplivpnes on fabric orders take seven or eight months and the material must them be sold and made into garments. The increase will be felt by the tail, probably by the spring "and by next fall you won't be able to buy an off-the-rack suit for under Mr. Breger, whose firm im- woool fabrics for men's garments, said orders are made 10 months before the son- son for which they are destin- ed.

New patterns are then seni to the cloth mills where a or sample cloth show- ing all the pattern's possible color combinations is made up. From these he picks what he wants, make an order and "once they start weaving it. there's no going back." There is a definite cycle to style and what "in" 40 years ago is "new" today but must be adapted to today's brighter colors, he said. Canadian tastes differ from area to area "You've got to know what group you are selling to. French Canadians tend to be more flamboyant in style and color than English-Canadians. Westerners prefer heavier suit- ing fabrics while Easterners want lightweight fabrics all year round." "In ihe past the suit was a covering. Today it is part of an outfit Socks, shoes, ties and shirts must match it." "Despite w hat everyone sax's, clothes still make the man." said Mr. Breger "When you look better, you feel bet- ter and you do better." Holiday ahead! ICE CREAM BIG DIPPER ASST.
