Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE UTHBRIDCE HIRALD Thundoy, November 16, 1972 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: My mother luaght me it is bad manners to look inlo oQier people's windows. I've grov.n up believing this is an invasion of privacy and in poor tusle. HCTC'S Uie problem; We have a large bay window in our living room and I love to let the sunshine stream in, so I seldom pall my dreperies. A dear neighbor of ours (and 1 am sincere when 1 say she is a lovely, fine person) has a habit of looking into that bay window to sec if it is O.K. before she rings the bell. For the life of me I can't understand what she is looking for. She would he welcome any time, and I mean that. Her habitual peering into my window really undoes me. Occasion- ally I look out and sec her there, shading her eyes with her hands, and f become upset. I'm sure she believes she is being considerate but I feel it is terribly rude. Please don't tell me to tell her. I can't. Any other suggestions? Love My Neighbor In Miami DEAR LOVE: O.K. don't TELL her. ASK her. Sample language: "What arc you looking for? Please don't feel that you need to check to see if it's all right to ring Uie bell. You are welcome any time." DEAR ANN LANDERS: You demonstrated a surprising lack of understanding and imagination when you praised the mother who refused to give her child the strawberries off her shortcake. When the child asked, "Can I have your straw- berries, Mom, because I love them so the mother re- plied. "I like strawberries, too, and I'm going to eat them myself." You commended that mother [or not caving in and you added, "Too many kids think they should have everything they see and ask for. Parents who cater to the whims of their children do llicra no favor." A much tetter way of handling the situation, in my opin- ion, would have been for the mother to day, "I like straw- berries, too, dear, hut I will share mine with you and the next time we have strawberries you will share yours with me." Agreed? The child would not only have been pleased but he would have learned the satisfaction that comes from sharing. The mother's approach, which you applauded, was a complete shutout. Also From Chicago DEAR CHIC: It was indeed a complete shutout, and that's what I liked about it. The notion that parents must always compromise to save a child's feelins is for the birds. There are many ways a child can learn to share, but this was an excellent opportunity to teach the child who "loved straw- berries" that other people also love strawberries, and it's no fair lo ask someone to settle for NO strawberries so he can have twice as many.

(AP Wirephoto) Two severe birth defects linked to blighted potatoes Ta wiil ivmci Librarians can give parents advice on children's literature By JANE BUODY New York Times Service NEW YORK The theory of a British scientist Unking blight- ed potatoes to the occurrence of two severe neurological birth defects has become the focus of discussion and on both sides of the Atlantic. The theory, put forth by Dr. James H. Remvick, a medical Jeneticist, holds that the de- and spina usually preven- table if the pregnant mother avoids some unknown substance present in certain potatoes, par- ticularly those infected by the blight fungus. Without lending his support lo .he theory, the British health secretary, Sir Keith Joseph, has cautioned housewives to discard any potatoes that appear dis- eased, decayed or discolored. St. South Phone 327-7331 mXMAS SPECIAL FAMILY ALLOWANCE DRAW I In the meantime, the British government said that it would launch its own investigation into the relationship of potatoes lo birth defects. Some American scientists are skeptical of the theory. Renwick presented his theory to a meeting of American scien- tists and to the United States Food and Drug Administration. The FDA said that it had taken the matter under advise- ment, but it did not issue a pub- lic statement. However, speaking as private citizens in interviews, scientists in and out of government rec- ommended discarding all dis- eased potatoes, even if only a small portion of the potato ap- pears to be affected. Remvick, of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medi- cine, derived his published last spring by matching statistics on the oc- currence of the two birth de- fects with statistics on the in- cidence of potato blight in var- ious parts of the world at var- ious times. Blight is a fungus infection that leaves a corky, hard, met- allic looking scar on the sur- face of the potato and turns the part under the skin a reddish- brown. Renwick noted that the de- fects were common in areas uu m Draw Made 5 P.M., Saturday, Nov. 25 (PliMe note One dfiw only for eieh SAAN -VALUES GALORE BINGO Scandinavian Hall 229 12lh St. "C" N.

Years during which blight was particularly troublesome were followed by years in which the incidence ot the two delects rose, he reported. Thus, iii Belfast and Dublin, where potato blight is common, one in 100 babies is bom afflict- ed with one of these two defects. But in London, where blight is less common, the defects occur in one in 200 births. And In the United States, where blight is still less common, the defects afflict one in babie> Renwick found that in the po- tato-growing states in the north- east, where climatic conditions favor blight, the defects occurr- ed more frequently than in (he Idaho area, where blight is al- most nonexistent. An anencephalic child is born without a brain and cannot sur- vive. In spina bifida, a defect that many survive, (he lower portion of the spinal column fails to close, and sensory and motor functions in the lower half of the body may be affect- ed. By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) If you would like to buy a book for a child for Christmas or any other time, there arc people positively eager to help you sort your way through the masses there are lo choose from. Libraries have book lists, they have a Young Canada Book Week this week, they have books. Most helpful of all, they have librarians. Margaret Johnston, head of boys and girls services tor the Toronto libraries, said: "Par- ents come to us for sugges- tions, and we encourage il. They really employ us to do this for them, you know." Miss Johnston said Hie rea- sons for choosing a book for a child are the same as I he rea- sons you'd use judging an adult book. Know something about the child and his inter- est, then consider the book on its content, style, charac- terizations, on its t-ulli and the reliability of the informa- tion in it. i CHILDREN CAN IIEU' She said all but Uie young- i est children can help choose. "Even among the pre-school children using the library, their specialties get devel- oped. They tell us if they liked a book or not, it's their ex- pression of what Ihey have en- joyed. "Remember, the bookstore people can he salesmen who say 'This book is popu- lar', or 'This goes well for seven-year-olds.' The right WeeWhimsv Consumer achievements For the past quarter o[ a century, Consumers' Associa- tion of Canada has been fight- ing for better consumer pro- tection. CAC is proud ot its nu- merous achievements such as the establishment of ground beef standards and non-decep- tive bacon packaging, stan- dardization of industrial milk used in manufacturing and dairy products, listing of nutri- tional values of evaporated milk, vitaminized apple juice, compulsory weight and expiry dale on cookies, regulations on the expiry date of vitamins, mandatory textile labelling, es- tablishment of Department of Consumer and Corporate Af- fairs, standardization of gar- ment sizes and hearing aids, in- terim standard for children's car seats. CAC headquarters are at 100 Gloucester Street, Ottawa, Ontario. WHAT BHOILER MEANS In the poultry industry, the term "broiler" refers to birds eight to 10 weeks of age and weighing two to four pounds book for the right child at the right time should apply. Fiction is where it is the most difficult lo do the choos- ing. But there is a body of children's literature that is the children's rightful inherit- ance, book like The Wind in the Willows and Alice in Won- derland. They don't die be- cause the children keep them alive, and others get added over the years." She named E. E. White's Charlotte's Web and the Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, by C. S. Lewis, as two fairly recent additions. Miss Johnston said a lot of c h i 1 d r c n 's hooks now are available in paper backs, that can be inexpensive gifls. Boys and Girls House in Toronto End other libraries have lists. Many libraries had other lists available. The federal government put out a list for Book Week, and many li- braries had displays from Book Week that migv.t provide inspiration. Miss Johnston said young people now are encouraged to use any part of a library and she felt they should be al- lowed to try books that may be too difficult. "Let them go ahead and get what they ran from it. Adults don't always getv everything (hey can out of a book or a lecture." She said she sees no harm In some trash reading. "A steady diet of it dulls the mir.d. If there's no exercise in reading. Ihey're going to leave il. But I Ihink Hiey should all have some trash in their lives. This is the main point, to enjoy books." GRADE YEARS BEST Marion Cooke, head of Boys and Girls House, said the cir- culation in children's libraries hasn't dropped appreciably, but that it's at its heaviest during the grade school years. Through adolescence, books have a lot of competition from sports, social life, television. But she said a child who has enjoyed reading will come back. "It's the mental stimulation that makes reeding valuable, and it's a very personal thing. Each person who reads a Ixiok gets something different out of it, and no one else can share it. "A child Is never too young to start off on books. Even at a year to a year and a half, they can have the nursery rhymes read to them. I think it's the rhythm they like. Then you can progress to sim- ple books, the Beatrix Potters. "If the parents read and read to the young children, the children will come to books." Seminar for hair stylists Fanny Fletcher was among the group of Lelhbridge beauti- cians recently returned from a two-day scientific seminar for hairdressers and barber-stylists held at the Calgary Inn in Cal- Calgary. The seminar, said Mrs. Flet- cher, was sponsored by an in- ternational company of hair care products, "to give the styl- ist a better insight into hair, and Hie ability to provide prop- er care for hair. "It was advanced learning In the scientific approach to hair she said, "and the reactions to different products and materials. "Microscopic work showed the actual changes in hair struc- ture from the different tech- niques like permanent waving, coloring and recondi- tioning." The aim of the course, she said, was "to equip the stylist to handle problems better." Dr. Jerry Boyco, PhD, from the faculty of the University ef Manitoba, analyzed the latest findings concerning hair struc- ture and cosmetic chemistry. Because of the current high rate of public interest, spon-i sors of the seminar placed special emphasis on hair color-, ing. Reconditioning, permanent waving and new processes for radial, blunt and geometric cut- ting were also studied. Other sessions were devoted to improving customer ser- vices.
