Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 5, 1974 ''While sweets are out, ground chuck is FOODBASKET PRICES Sugar prices food costs levelling By MARJ GRAY The Canadian Press The rising cost of sugar continues to leave a sour taste with most Canadians, the October food basket survey shows. Winnipeg is the only city of 12 surveyed by The Canadian Press which showed no sharp increase in sugar prices, with the cost there remaining the same as for five pounds of white granulated. The constant climb in sugar prices reflects a world shor- tage which pushed the price on Toronto and Montreal markets for 100 pounds to J49.65 in October this year from last November. John McCreight, president of the Purchasing Management Association of Canada, calls the drastic increases unjustified and blames them on a "strong speculative element" affecting the world market. While sweets are out, it appears ground chuck is price across the country tended to drop, except in Quebec City where it rose 50 cents a pound. Yet even price decreases for chuck of up to 34 cents a pound are not enough, one Ontario beef producer says. Grant Burroughes, president of the Ontario Beef Improve- ment Association, says the wholesale price of imported boneless beef is dropping faster than the supermarket price. He says someone in the middle is making a fast profit. The 17 items in the market basket are priced in the same supermarkets on the last Tuesday of each month. They include one pound each of sirloin-tip roast beef, all- beef wieners, centre-cut loin of pork, top-grade chicken, ground chuck steak, frozen cod fillets, top-grade butter, tomatoes, frozen green peas, drip coffee and apples. Also included are one dozen medium eggs, one quart of whole milk, a 24-ounce loaf of sliced white bread, 10 pounds of first-grade potatoes, five pounds of white granulated sugar and a 24-ounce can of halved pears. Some findings, compared with last month as well as the total price in October, 1973: Halifax: Coffee slipped 33 cents to but the sugar for it cost 27 cents more at Tomatoes went up 11 cents to 49, wieners 10 cents to and eggs eight cents to 88.

Although Vancouver has so far avoided the problem, nearby Richmond, Prince Rupert and upper Vancouver Island have not been so lucky. In February, 1973, 700 Rich- mond children had to be decontaminated and Prince Rupert elementary schools reported 100 cases last fall. The extent of the outbreak is not known, said Dr. Larsen because many schools handle the problem themselves without reporting to provin- NOTICE The Ladies' Auxiliary to the Rehabilitation Centre for the Handicapped announce their Annual Tea and Sale of Work which was to be held November 7th has been CANCELLED.

Dr. Ted McLean, Van- couver's school health direc- tor, said North American lice are not disease carriers only nuisances. They like dirt, said Dr. McLean. Hence their affinity to small children averse to washing. Detection is easy. Aside from causing a lot of scratching they appear as black specks on the host's scalp or as white eggs at the base of hair strands. The cure is conscientious cleaning. Dr. McLean said the health service gives away a louse powder based on the pesticide carbaryl or prescribes several shampoos containing the same sub- stance.

We added new pieces of rolling stock last And spent on ties. This kind of commitment is part of the spirit at CP Rail. We believe good freight service is really a question of good people. Whether they're fore- casting trends, buying new equipment, or ensuring another on-time arrival. At CP Rail we believe freight is people- like Al Fuller.

Rail I I -The Herald Family Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I'm sending a column that I have saved since March 1962. As you can see, it is yellow with age, but it's such a good one I wish you would rerun it. I'm sure your readers who remember it will be pleased to see it again. Thank you for all the pleasure you've given me. -Mrs. B. Willing, River Forest, 111. Dear Mrs. W: Here's your rerun. Thanks for making my Tuesday easier. Dear Ann Landers: Your column is a study of Man. But what IS Man? Here is my definition: Man is what WOMAN marries. Generally speaking, he has two hands and two feet. But he rarely has more than one dollar or one idea at a time. Making a husband out of a man is one of the most intricate and challenging forms of plastic art known to civilization. This art requires a knowledge of science, sculp- ture, common sense, intuition, patience, faith, hope and charity. It is a psychological phenomenon that a small, tender, soft, violet scented creature like a woman should enjoy kissing a stubby chinned, tobacco and bourbon scented thing like a man. If you flatter a male, you frighten him to death. If you don't you bore him to death. If he gets what he wants, he becomes uninterested and it's the end. If he doesn't get what he wants, he becomes uninterested and there's no beginning If you wear gay colors, eye makeup and startling hats he hesitates to take you out. If you wear a tailored suit and a little brown beret he stares all evening at the woman in gay colors, eye makeup and the startling hat. If you are a clinging vine, in- capable of making a decision, he considers you an idiot. If you are decisive and ac- complished he considers you a machine. If you are simple and un- complicated he longs for a brainy woman with ideas. If you are a brainy womar with ideas he suspects you are competing with him and even- tually he dumps you in favor of a stupid playmate. What is the solution to this puzzlement of human nature, this collage of quirks and contradictions'' Who knows the answers'' I don't That's why I'm writing to Ann Landers. Me. Dear Augusta: Woman was not born to understand man. She was born to love him. Dear Ann Landers: I'll make this short and to the point. My husband and I are having a tough time making it on his paycheck. I want to go back to work. I can get my old job back and it's work I enjoy. The money is excellent. I'd be working the a.m. shift and my husband works from p.m. to midnight. (He loves this shift and there is no way I could get him off of it. I've tried.) If I want to work I will have to pay the babysitter because he refuses to watch our two children. He says, "You wanted the kids. Now you can watch 'em. You don't HAVE to work. If you want to go back to your old job then you can pay the sitter." Ann, I am not asking him to clean or cook just watch the kids till I get home. What's your advice? to a Hard-Headed Dutchman Dear Married to a H.H.D.: Before I answer your letter I want to make it plain to all my readers in Grand Rapids and Midland. Mich., and certain parts of Pennsylvania that YOU called him a Hard Headed Dutchman I didn't. Answer: He SHOULD watch the kids, not only to save money but so he can become acquainted with his children. It's painfully ap- parent that he has a poor relationship with them, and the new setup would alter this immeasurably. Ability to cope with death important GUELPH, Ont. (CP) Per- sons unable to handle grief over the death of a loved one can develop ulcers, hyper- active thyroid and rheumatoid arthritis, says Guelph psy- chiatrist Dr. Merville Vincent. Dr. Vincent, medical superintendent of Homewood Sanatorium, said the ability to cope with death in a normal manner is important to men- tal health and everyday usefulness. It is misleading when per- sons attempt to avoid mourn- ing by keeping busy and ex- hibiting a "zest for "This over-activity, with no apparent sense of loss or sad- ness, can be described as a distorted said Dr. Vincent. "During grief we may not feel very close to those who come around us, and we may alienate some of them." Dr. Vincent said a normal grief reaction should be over an initial "real crisis period" of four to six weeks, at which time the bereaved person should be resolving the crisis. He said funerals play a vital role in alleviating grief, bring- ing together friends who can give strength in times of severe stress. Jewish rabbis are especially effective with funerals, he said. Together with some members of the congregation close to the family, the rabbi will conduct a regular period of mourning which can be psy- chologically beneficial. But. Dr, Vincent advised, if a bereaved person does not ap- pear to be improving, con- sultation with a family physi- cian, psychiatrist or mental health worker should be in- itiated as suicide can often be- come a strong possibility.
