Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta IS THE tiTHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, November 1970- For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor Responsibility for both parties TVO MATTER whether someone decides the legal age will be age 21, 18 or 81, there's still enough of the kid left in us to make life interesting. All it takes is the right circumstance to bring it out. Take snow, for instance. To the adult way of thinking, snow is for shov- elling, troublesome driving, ruining a hairdo, and pro- viding an excuse for buying expensive ski equipment and snowmobiles. To the child, snow is wonderful, for kicking, for rolling around in, building snowmen, and throwing. This latter point is the hanger for some of these legal-age types who go around in furry hats and carry briefcases and face life with an earnestness which allows no time for simple enjoyment. Unless they can afford expensive ski equipment and snowmobiles and other such affluent activities, they mutter at the snow pausing only briefly to re- flect whether or not the studded tires will hold another year. Now take off the furry hat, put down the heavy work-filled briefcase. Place before this unsuspecting adult a pile of fresh, white just-right-for-throwing snow enough to stir a few childlike remembrances. Watch him take that snow lovingly in both hands. His eyes are unseeing or uncaring as the water drips from warm office conditioned hands onto his highly-polished shoes. The gleam, long forgotten, well hidden, but ever present, returns to his eye, and turns up his mouth in a boyish grin. He doesn't need to be told what to do with his creation, his snowball. The old right arm might be out of shape and a little stiff, but it'll do and so will any friend or foe passing by. And hasn't it been a long time! He's recaptured a simplicity of childhood and he's younger already. The marbles, the jacks, the things he used to dp when life was so uncomplicated and and fun! That the legal age of 21 is unrealistic, there is no doubt. But watch it! You can get so sober about life when you're an adult. Kids don't need much to have fun, just someone to have fun with. And as I grieve with all former Saskatchewan- Ites, I must admit that attempting to match that kick of Larry Kobinson's with a snowball in the middle of a stuffy office at 3 in the afternoon is glorious!

TESTS DEVICE COVKNTRY, England (AP) Arthur Pickard tied the busi- ness end of his fishing line around his wife's waist and set her to running around the yard, which understandably attracted the neighbors. He explained ho was testing a device to warn fishermen of bites and it was all in the cause of scientific an- gling. part two Credit: Protection for company and customer By MAIHIA'N ANDEUSON Herald Family Editor CREDIT is a convenience to J the consumer, but since it is also a service, the consumer can expect to pay for it, and often heavily, due to the irre- sponsible attitude a few take toward it. Even a small business ex- tends credit to its customers, usually without charging month- ly interest, while the larger companies make general use of the credit card, and charging interest for the privilege. While a company may refuse credit to an individual, the more preferable method is to limit ihe amount of credit he can receive. The company can also keep a watchful eye on the monthly purchases charged to the account. A credit card issuing com- pany considers the risks of credit, and then holds out the hope that the consumer exercise his responsibility using it. In a survey of local chain stores, the most favored meth- od of control is to have the sales clerk refer all purchases over to the store's credit department. Sometimes the customer is told the reason for the call to the office, but not always. The customer may either resent, or be embarrassed at, having his or her credit checked especially in front of other customers. The procedure is standard however, for all customers, and is just one way in which the store protects itself from those customers who do not pro- tect themselves from over- spending. One department store has computerized its accounts sys- tem. When a customer is grant- ed an account card, he or she is assigned a theoretical spend- ing limit by the store, accord- ing to the information provider by the customer's application form. Each week every one of the store's accounts is reviewed by computer to determine whether or not the account has been overspent, that is, whether the customer has gone over his as- signed risk. If this is the case, then the account is reviewed as to whether the assigned limit was set too low. Assigning a credit rating is "not the easiest thing in the world" said one credit man- ager, but keeping the accounts under constant review does pro- vide a flexible framework with which to work. When an assigned limit is over-extended the customer is not necessarily contacted nor even aware of the behind-the- scenes credit review. One source said that 90 per cent of their customers are never contacted. The majority of consumers, in fact, do not even know what their credit rat- ing is in each store or ever have reason to find out. In one local department store a purchase of over is not only referred by the sales clerk to the store's office bul is also checked against the of- fice list of customers who are not considered to be good cred- it risk; Purchases of over niusl then be referred to the chain's head office in Vancouver for further cheeking. Another means of contro used locally Is will) a coupon wok. By this method the cus- .omcr knows at a glance how much has been charged to his account by the number of cou- pons which have been used. An official of the store using coupon books says that many customers prefer this way of regulating their spending by choice. Coupon books may bo obtained in amounts of fso and Amounts of and are used as a guideline to purchasing. A good credit rating is not hard to obtain according to one credit source. "Just pay your A credit bureau keeps a file on every person applying for credit at one of its client's busi- nesses. A credit investigator said people can receive infor- mation about their credit rating "If they have a legitimate rea- son for wanting to He said he does not consider a wife wanting to know what her hus- band's credit rating is, or cur- iosity seekers, as legitimate Individual flies are the prop- erly of the bureau however, and although they may contain per- sonal information regarding the individual, he or she is not al- lowed to see it. "If someone wants to see me to talk about their rating, we'll sit down and talk about their file. I do not show them the file."

L. Usher, Alber- ta deputy minister of youth, said in Lethbridge Wednesday. Mr. Usher, speaking to about 50 persons at the annual meet- ing of the Lethbridge Family Y, said the adjustments must be made in current programs as well as in general plans for the future. He said the department of youth, set up in 1954, has had some success in adapting to current needs. Working from some basic guidelines set down in 1864, the department, in addition to regular programs for youth, has several pilot projects. The Alberta Service Corps- college undergraduates work- ing with social problems this past the Youth In- Family Y ends year in red The Lethbridge Family Y ended the 1969-70 year with an operations deficit of some 000. The Y budgeted for a deficit. Increased costs for op- erating a larger including additional salaries are indicated as the main rea- sons for the increased deficit. The financial report was made at t h e Lethbridge Fam- ily Y's annual meeting Wed- nesday. Vaughan Hembroff, returned for a second one-year term as president of the Family Y, said the first two months of the cur- rent year's operations shows a better financial picture and there is hope of "beating down" the deficit in the months ahead. A capital deficit of some 000 still exists on the recent million-dollar building project establishing the new Family Y. The building and equipment is noted at some The balance of the capital deficit includes administrative costs and slirink, including un- paid building pledges.

An outdoor recreation pro- gram for the handicapped, cul- minating in provincial games for the handicapped last sum- mer, was another move to cur- rent needs. Mr. Usher said the depart- ment steers away from inter- fering with existing programs and organizations and wants to play a supporting role when asked. He said co-ordination of ser- vices, to prevent overlapping is a concern of the department. The department has a re- search project in leadership development, and a project with young Indian population in Edmonton under way. The 4-H youth program mainly involving rural youth, formerly under the department of agriculture, is included in the youth department's juris- dication. impulse buying Is one the dangers of owning a credit card. According to one local credit manager it is not the necessities that cause credit problems, it's all the luxury items and impulse shopping which adds up the total month- ly faster than can be paid. If initial means of protection have failed both the creditor and the debtor, and bills are still unpaid, two other courses of action are now open. The creditor may turn the ac- count over to a collection agency to recover Ms loss, and UK debtor may seek the assist- ance of the court under the Bankruptcy Act.
