Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IEIHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, November J5, 1970---------- In My Opinion By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Stuff Writer vai winter catches me by surprise with Ms stomach grabbing moments as my car slides around a corner or my feet sail through mid-air. It's funnv but 1 never seem to remember iron year to year'wliat is scheduled to happen as old man winter moves to town. I tell people every fall. 1 don't like the season and then wonder to myself why such a beautiful and peaceful time of year isn't more appealing. But nave no second thoughts about enjoying fall when 1 eel mv first taste of winter. The frosty air is one feature 1 whole-heartedly enjoy The bright, alive feeling one gets when bustling from place to place is very satisfying and especially good for those muscles still lazy from the summer slow-down. But let me say. when it comes to tnose suicide traps the frost covered sidewalks, 1 would sure like to meet old man winter after 1 borrow Maxwells sil- ver hammer. 1 don't mind the drifts which pile up and bury cars half as much as when the Chinook comes over those mountains and creates pure havoc. The slush, and and muck is really enough to drive anyone crazy never mind those poor obsessive housekeepers. When leaving for work in the early morning, it s a complete coin-toss whether to wear therma-Uned boots or rubber hip-waders. Right on cue. at 12 noon I undoubtedly discover 1 have made the wrong choice. Still, bless its warm little heart, Chinook does cre- ate just the right medium for gigantic snowmen, mas- sive forts and" fierce snowball fights. At this point 1 won't mention the skiers or snowmobile enthusiasts. One question that always comes to my mind, as 1 crawl over the 9th street bridge in my little car be- hind a sanding truck, is just where in the world does the tons of sand spread on our city afreets during the winter disappear to? No one can tell me that the thin coating of gravel which builds in the gutter could possibly be all of it. Yet, in the spring as truck and truck loads of sand are hauled by the city crews, you know it had to be hiding behind some corner. Yet. with all this griping every winter, what else do f greet a friend with other than, "my, isn't, it cold or "isn't this warm weather a switch." I am sure I would find summer all year-round rather boring. What a dreadful feeling comes over me if I ever stop and think about what it would be like to wear my1 one summer wardrobe, all year. Horrors. Okay, old man winter, Come if you like. You may be a pain to me but I have become accustomed to your face and would miss it terribly if you didn't pay a Obtaining credit parl one Credit: Responsibilities and liabilities I By MARILYN ANDERSON j Herald Family Editor ON TIME has be- come an accepted practice in modern living. The issuance of a credit card has become a symbol of adulthood to youth. With sufficient credit cards, one can travel across the country without carrying a single pen- ny, as is frequently advertised. 'Theoretically one could enter a city with no money, luggage, clothing or references, and with the magic credit card, receive food, clothing, transportat i o n and even entertainment. It's an unfortunate image for the buying public to have of credit, and it can be a disaster if one attempts to use it in that m n c r. Used with caution, credit can be a convenience. Used with abandon, disaster falls at the end of the month when the hills arrive.

In a survey of Lethbridge de- partment stores, the number of applications frr credit cards which is turned down is small. Standards vary from si ore to store. One national chain store sets 21 as a minimum age for receiving a credit card, while another chain approves cards to IB- and 17-year-olds if they are I working. I In genera! use is an applica- lion form which the customer must fill out, stating his empoy- ment, what type, and for how j long.

Credit checks are a must for most large chains before an ap- plication is approved and may be carried out in 10 minutes to 20 in i n u t c s depending upon which credit bureau is doing the investigating. In some stores, both husband and wife can be issued a credit card although the store limits accounts to one per family. On this basis, both husband and wife may charge goods in- dependent of each other, but the total bill will he sent in one name, usually the husband's. One store allows others in the family, such as teen age chil- dren to use the account. These children will be issued a spe- cial card upon request of the parents. The card is marked with a key letter so that it is immedi a t e 1 y recognizable by the sales clerk. Today an application for a credit card must pass on its own merits. The method of us- ing co signers is no longer allowed, at least in Lethbridge stores. A co signer could allow an individual to guarantee an application may not have been accepted by itself.

The plot thickens as she drops this little gem: "I used to hold a part-time iob but my pregnancies have made it impossible for me to work these past three years." And then her final whimper, "We can't uake it on one paycheck." If they can't make it what are they doing with three kids in three years? We hear a lot of talk about pollution these days. Everyone is screaming at General Motors and Commonwealth Edison. But the principal polluters are PEOPLE. We must keep the size of families down or we are all doomed.
