Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, November 5, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 The Homemaker THE BETTER HALF By Barnes By LINDA WHITSON District Home Economist in training Winter storage for summer things: Try to clean the tent before storing it you'll appreciate it next spring. At least sweep ihe floor and roof. If you can be sure of drying the tent, wash the outside with the garden hose to remove dirt and dust. Be sure the tent is thoroughly dry. Roll it loosely and store it high to avoid mice and damp floors. If mildew should occur brush it off with a stiff brush. Then brush with a mild soap and water. Rinse well; dry and treat with a waterproof- ing product containing mildew inhibitors. Never use solvent or spot cleaners and never launder your tent. Dry clean or launder everything before storing. Homes with lots of storage space for off season garmets are a real boon in this climate. In homes where space is more limited, use your suitcase, plastic garment bags, cedar chests, etc. And why not throw out anything you haven't worn for the past four seasons. Chances are they'll never be used again anyway. Many of the larger barbecue sets come equipped with protective covers, so once they've been thoroughly cleaned storage is simple.

Dahlia, gladiolus, and begonia are treated similarly except that the gladiolus bulbs should be stored in open trays or bags while the others can be packed in peat moss or ver- miculite. All should be washed and dried well before storing and the storage area should be cool. Seeds should also be stored in a cool, dry place if they are to be kept over the winter.

What's it worth to you to tell her the store is on fire and to run for her 'Greeting cards also not immune to inflation' New York Times Service NEW YORK Greetings. This is to advise you that greeting cards are also not immune to inflation. Buyers of cards, published by nearly 200 companies are finding things a little different at retail counters and in the mail order market. As an alternative to higher prices, the industry's- major companies are offering few low priced cards, less glitter, and less color. The five cent card has disappeared, and rising costs of paper printing, salaries and transportation are now threatening the 10 cent and 15 cent cards. As for personalized cards, handled by some of the nation's department stores, those prices, especially when postage costs are added, are competing with a weekend telephone call. "The same price levels are being maintained that we had last said Dean Sampson, director of product marketing for Gibson Greeting Cards, Inc., based in Cincinnati. "What's being done is that we are putting a different balance in cards on the racks, and today the consumer is likely to find fewer lower priced cards." This "product mix" means a smaller selection of 10 cent to 25-cent cards on shelves with a broader variety of cards with higher prices. "Five years ago 15 cents was the starting point, but today it's pretty much the 25 cent said an official at Hallmark Cards, Inc., of Kansas City, Mo., which is credited with selling at least one of every five cards marketed in the United States. Hallmark, which also publishes the Ambassador and Snoopy card lines, pulled its five cent cards off the shelves last year. The same card is back this year but is "slightly larger in size, selling for 15 the Hallmark official said. Most greeting card companies are privately held, a situa- tion that makes market estimates difficult. But industry and government statistics suggest that the greeting card market, of which Christmas cards make up 22 per cent on the average, is worth more than billion. It is also estimated that more than three billion cards of all types are sold annually in the United States. Although some in the industry said there had been layoffs by some companies in the effort to cut costs, representatives of companies questioned denied it. The American Greetings Cor- poration refused to discuss any aspect of the business in the absence of a written note or a visit to the company's head- quarters in Cleveland. At Hallmark, however, several steps have been taken to reduce costs, which have risen an estimated 15 per cent or more industry-wide. Some 6.000 accounts that had been handled by field sales agents are now handled by telphone at a central point in Kansas City, cutting back costs on gas, company cars and time. The sales agents have been reassigned in many cases. FAIRFIELD SERVICES LTD.

Phone 327-6684 or 327-6070 I Are men's roles controlled by society? Men encounter group launched WINNIPEG (CP) A Winnipeg branch of the YWCA is providing the unlikely setting for a series of all- male group encounter sessions. Entitled On Being a Man, the sessions will offer men an opportuni- ty to examine the attitudes, ideals, and goals society has thrust upon them, while raising the topics of es- tablishing male identities and whether men's roles are self- oriented or controlled by society. Headed by a 31-year-old social worker Clark Brownlee, a counsellor at the Family Bureau of Greater Winnipeg, the sessions are an indirect derivative of the women's liberation movement. Mr. Brownlee said he first thought of establishing the sessions after reading an article in a national women's magazine dealing with the female role in society. He decided to hold them at the YWCA after he dis- covered authorities were planning a self awareness program for women in the same building. Mr. Brownlee believes women's liberation has provided an impetus for all members of society. "I think we owe a lot to the women's lib movement. If they didn't feel free and courageous enough to re-examine their roles, it would have been more difficult for men." The sessions will enable par- ticipants to come to grips with the problem on an individual basis. "The only way to do this is to know who you are as a person, not who you are as a man. That will come later. "Once we've established who we are, we can go back and establish how that relates to what we've been taught about what we should be." If the two factors conflict, the man must decide whether to follow the path created by society or the course plotted by his individual aspirations. "Individual control only comes when you're very sure of who you are and what you want. I suspect a lot of men have done what they thought they should do since they were about 17 years old." In order to avoid negative social stigma, most men follow preordain- ed paths which may or may not fulfil their expectations from life, Mr. Brownlee said. For example, it is traditionally ex- pected of men to accept leadership roles, climb up the corporate ladder and display only socially-defined masculine emotions This type of at- mosphere forces men into certain roles, that now are being recognized as superficial. The pressure to fill pre- determined roles often breeds un- certainty anxiety, and selfdoubt, Mr. Brownlee said "These are crucial issues, not minor If these questions aren't answered, then people get upset, angry and disillusioned. I suspect that a large proportion of society is not really dealing with them ade- quately." One of the major pur- poses of the sessions will be to plant the seed of self-determination in the minds of participants. "I'm basically interested in peo- ple realizing their potential; finding out who they are and knowing the choices are there. I would like to see people generally exercise as much control in their lives as possible." Some men are afraid to question and confront their roles for fear of social reaction, Mr. Brownlee said.
