Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: This is a ridiculous complaint and I know it but a situation exists in our office that is embarrassing to say the least. A girl I work with has a fantastic wardrobe. She could go for a month and a half without wearing the same dress twice. I'm sure she has a thing about not repeating outfits and in order to show up in a different outfit every day she has taken to wearing her cocktail dresses. Some of these party numbers are backless and slashed to the navel. When she bends down to put the mail in the bottom slots about 20 guys rush over to "help." Yesterday she wore a sequined mini that looked like a skating costume. I'm sure it glows at night. The office errand runner (age 17) swallowed his chewing gum when he saw her. Several of us girls think she is cheapening the office. Should somebody say something? It For My Husband DEAR SAVING: The office manager is the one who should "say something" but obviously he likes what he sees, and from your description, he sees plenty. It would do no good to speak to the girl She knows what she is doing and is enjoying it immensely. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My wife and I got into a frank discussion with another couple last night. Today my wife isn't speaking to nte. This' question came up: Would any of us remarry if something should happen to our mates? The others all said they would not remarry. I said I would. My wife claims I don't love her and that I humiliated her in front of our friends. What do you say? Zero DEAR ZERO: Widows and widowers who have had happy marriages tend to remarry. It is a compliment rather than an insult to the deceased partner. Your wife should be flattered, not hurt. When romantic glances turn to warm embraces is it love or chemistry?

Ne children under 16 allowed Tired At 99 PORT ELIZABETH, South Af- rica (AP) At age 99, Mrs. Lilian Gard volunteers no recipe for longevity.

Ph. 327-3529 Winner At Expo '67 Gets Trip To Expo 70 OSAKA, Japan (CP) Three years ago, Marthe Racine, a 42-year-old Montreal mother of five, clicked through the turn- stiles at Expo '67 to become that world fair's vis- itor. Today Mrs. Racine and her husband Andre reaped the bene- fits of their 1967 windfall and arrived here for two weeks, all- expenses-paid, at Expo 70 "on a second honeymoon." Their trip to Expo 70 was a "piece of incredible good said lively, attractive Mrs. Ra- cine. In addition to the trip to Osaka, the Racines won a bar- rage of smaller prizes, including two Swiss Watches emblazoned with Expo 67 symbols they wore to Japan. "It was the last of 20 visits we made to Expo 67, and I remem- ber thinking as we went up to the gate on the night of Oct. 28 that the visitor must be getting very she said. "As I went through, some people came over and started pushing and shbving us to the side. They were so excited I couldn't understand what they were saying. Finally, one man took his hand off the top of my head and said 'You're visitor1." In 1967, the trip to Japan seemed "a long way she said. "But during the last two or three weeks were getting more and more excited." First stop on their Japan visit was Tokyo, "which was just fantastic." The Japan Expo Association rolled out the red carpet when Mrs. Racine and her husband, a technical services worker, ar- rived at the sweltering 815-acre Expo 70 site in the Senri Hills outside Osaka. They were accorded full VJP lonors, provided with a pretty Japanese hostess-guide and a jink eltctric mini-taxi to chauf- eur them from pavilion to pa- vilion. The Racines also re- ceived maps, guidebooks, ad- mission tickets and a number of Dxpo 70 souvenirs from an Expo protocol officer. Speaking through translators, hey were guests at a news con- erence with Japanese report- ers. Mrs. Racine told them that he and her husband have al- ready come to "like Japan very-much. It's marvel- ous." Later in an Interview Just prior to leaving for the Cana- ian and other pavilions where further honors were waiting, ,Irs. Racine said this is "the irst holiday we've taken in 10 iars." "We used to go to Lac St. ean in Quebec every summer until our eldest child was rowned.

It was a very great loss, very bad luck. So be- coming the visitor at Expo in Montreal was a piece of incredibly good luck. "For us, the trip to Osaka is a second honeymoon." Turning to her Japanese hosts, Mrs. Racine asked if it would be possible to visit a typi- cal Japanese home. "We liie the Japanese people so very much and we must see how they live at home." The Japanese promptly put it on the agenda. Asked what she wanted to see most at Expo 70, Mrs. Racine listed the Canadian pavilion as her primary objective, followed by the Quebec, British Columbia and Ontario want to see Canada at Expo first." 1 Women Should Seek Posts In School Board Elections COQUITLAM, B.C. (CP) Berenice Gilmore believes more women, especially school teach- ers, should seek election to local school boards. A former teacher herself, she was elected to the school board in this Vancouver suburb first in 1967 and again in 1969. "I wanted to be on the school board because I felt I had a contribution to she said in an interview. "I had seen ed- ucation from the teacher's point of view and it's important to have that point of view ex- pressed." Her work doesn't stop with the school board. The mother of three and wife of a Coquitlam alderman is also a member of a trustee-teacher liaison commit- tee launched to improve com- munications.

THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes ''Is dinner opened The Numbers Game with Phosphates in detergents A PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT BY AMWAY OF CANADA, LTD. Recently it has become popular to com- pile and circulate lists purporting to show the percentage of phosphate in detergents and al- lied cleaning products. The apparent purpose of these lists is to encourage the reader to use low phosphate content products in the interest of cleaner lake and stream water. While the intent of this activity is laudable, he lists we have seen are so full of errors and we believe they are best ignored. Here is why we make this statement: First: Amway makes 2! laundry and gcn- tral cleaning products. Eleven contain no phos- phate, 2 less than and the other 8 have varying amounts according to the purpose they are intended to serve. Yet one widely published list shows only ONE listing of Amway using the trademark "Amway" with no desig- nation of the type of product and showing "73.5% phosphate." To publish a list simply showing a company name with a percentage seems to us about as inaccurate as to publish the name "General h.p." in a list of auto horsepower ratings. Second: Another list compares Amway'i enzyme pre-soak product (TriZyme) with a group of heavy duty and light duty detergents. This a like comparing apples with bananas. Products, if to be meaningfully compared on the basis of phosphate content, should be care- fully classified as to intended use. An enzyme pre-soak should be compared with other enzyme pre-soaks, a heavy duty detergent with other heavy duty detergents, a dishwashing detergent with other dishwashing detergents, etc. Third: No mention of the amount of the product one would expect to use is made in most of the lists. A low phosphate detergent used in lavish quantities in order to get clothes clean may actually put considerably more phos- phate in the water than a high phosphate prod- uct that need only be used sparingly because of its high cleaning power. A low phosphate prod- uct used frequently might put much more phos- phate into the water than a higher phosphate product used only occasionally. Fourth: One list recognized the fallacy of comparing products merely on a percentage basis, and set about to correct the error by publishing a comparison based on grams of phosphate used per wash cycle and parts per million in the effluent. Unfortunately the com- piler of this list flunked his arithmetic. Grams per wash were listed as Amway S-A-8: 39.9, and included in the list were six others listed as 18.1, 20.0, 23.5, 24.1, 26.1, and 27.1 grams per wash cycle respectively. Our laboratory carefully re-checked the work and found the grams per cycle comparison is actually Amway S-A-8: 36.8, and the six others mentioned above are 38.4 instead of I S.I; 34.7 instead of 20.0; 51 instead of 23.5; 44.1. instead of 24.1; 34.2 instead of 26.1; and 37.4 instead of 27.1. In addition, the use amount quoted for Amway S-A-8 is almost double what many users actually put in their machine, so for many users the grams per wash load of Amway S-A-8 would be closer to 20 for actual use, dilutions. A Bttlcr Guide. We suggest a good general rule to follow regarding phosphate content in cleaning products and detergents is that with present day brands, most products intended for the same use contain relatively similar per- centages of phosphate by weight. Classifications are as follows: Phosphate Content Classification expressed as of POj Heavy duty laundry powders 30 45 (Amway S-A-S Plus 34.8% Amway S-A-8 Special Light duty laundry powders 15 30% Liquid hand dishwashing detergents (Amway Dish Drops less than 1 Amway L.O.C. Suds Machine dishwasher detergents 30 45 (Amway Automatic Dishwashing Compound Liquid hand laundry products (Amway L.O.C. Amway Gcrmicidal Liquid all purpose cleaners 0 7% (Amway Zoom Amway Industroclean 1.3 Amway Car Wash Enzyme pre-soaks about 50% (Amway Tri-Zyme 54.2 Water softening powders about 80% (Amway Water Softening Compound But note this; The above percentages re- flect phosphate content expressed as percent of The phosphate compound used in these products when so expressed is only about 33% phosphorous, the element all the talk is about.. Therefore, total phosphorous content of the products is about one-third that shown above. What You Can Do about it. We suggest tfiat if you have a concern about phosphate get- ting into streams and lakes the following would be a common sense approach: 1. Work with your local governments to encourage all municipalities in your area to build 3-stage sewage disposal systems as soon as possible. Hundreds of industrial and-house- hold chemicals and pollutants from human wastes are going into streams now because of inadequate sewage treatment facilities. The time has come to build facilities to clean up of our sewage water and control the total problem. It is estimated removal of phosphate and cer-' tain other chemicals from effluent water of a 3-stage disposal system can be accomplished for an operating cost of less than per person per year. This is a broader and more effective solution to the problem than reformulating detergents and other household products, be- cause at least half of the phosphate in sewage comes from human wastes, and reformulated detergents won't change that. Also, reformula- tion of cleaning products with phosphate sub- stitutes that totally eliminate the phosphate, even if technically and economically feasible (which it presently is not) might result in only sub- stituting other ingredients with other problems when the effluent reaches streams. 2. Since phosphate content products are used principally in the laundry, it may be pos- sible to dispose of your washing machine water in another way than through tbe public drain. You may be accomplishing this already, since correctly built septic tanks probably introduce no phosphate into public waters. 3. If you are connected to a city sewer system which does not have complete disposal facilities, and phosphate nutrients in streams are considered a serious problem in your com- munity, you can use a general purpose non- phosphate liquid detergent to do your laundry such as Amway's unique "L.O.C." You must be prepared for a lower level of dirt and soil removal from clothes, however, and you may have to resort to some of the laundering tech- niques of bygone years such as overnight soaking and boiling. 4. Amway offers a full line of cleaning products carefully formulated for specific pur- poses. Amway's high performance products used according to directions will produce good results even when used sparingly. When nothing but phosphate containing products will do the products of that type can be re- lied upon to do the work most economically nnd with no need to use excessive quantities. 5. Amway has small quantities of a heavy duly low phosphate laundry detergent available for special situations (sec description What Is Amway Doing about Pollution? Amway is deeply concerned, like any good citizen. Here is Amway's "clean 1. Even though there is a difference of scientific opinion as to whether the elimination tf phosphates in detergents will have a signifi- cant effect on eutrophication of lakes, Amway 'chemists are actively evaluating phosphate sub- stitutes for detergent use that will be economic, efficient, and not cause unforeseen worse prob- lems than phosphate is alleged to cause now. 2. Amway is now introducing to tho Canadian market a heavy duty laundry deter- gent with less than 10% phosphate. The product contains a phosphate substitute which is expen- sive and will be in extremely short supply for a long time to come. Therefore Amway dis- tributors have been instructed to offer this product only to customers whose laundries are connected to public sewers without phosphate disposal systems, and where phosphate nutrients are considered to be causing an immediate problem. The product presently costs more, to use, but gives results equivalent to good quality higher phosphate rsroducts. We believe it is the best low phosphate product that can be made immediately, though future research will un- doubtedly make possible equally fine products at lower cost. 3. Amway has long been in the forefront in the field of promoting clean water. Amway marketed detergent products with biodegradable surfactants as much as five years before most of the industry converted. Surfactants are an indispensable ingredient in any detergent prod- uct, and present day surfactants used in all de- tergent products are of a type that can be consumed by bacteria in sewage plants and streams and converted to harmless materials. 4. Some confusion exists in understanding the new terminology regarding pollution mat- ters. For instance, biodeRradability of surfactants is technically an entirely different matter than acceleration of plant growth in lake waters by excess nutrients such as phosphate. Many new terms have only recently come into popular use, such as eutrophication, ecology, thermal pollution, oxygen depletion and algal nutrients. This necessitates more exact definition of form- erly used terms, such as biodegradability of surfactants. Amway will conduct an educational program to provide its distributors and customers with better understanding of these terms. Future label and advertising copy will include the new terminology with today's connotations. 5. Amway suggests citizens keep these matters in proper perspective. Cleaning up the pollution of our environment water, air and land is a great .challenge for all of us in this decade. It is a serious problem, with world-wide ramifications. To arouse public interest and support, predictions of impending disaster are being widely published. Facts are not always being separated from opinions. Industry and government become easy scapegoats. But this must not lead to hastily contrived programs and actions that may actually worsen the situation by using funds that could be better spent on well planned long term solutions. We all want a clean environment. We will achieve it best by well reasoned and well planned actions based .upon scientifically proven facts, not by hastv actions based on emotional speculation.
