Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAU ANN LANDERS: Recently yon printed eight sug- gestions on how lo break up Ihe marriage ol a sun or daugh- ter. I would like to add more. These are guaranteed Vo work. I know because they destroyed my marriage. Here they arc: (1) Whenever your married son and daughter visit with their children, make a point ol how thin and lircd the tads look. Get across Ihe message that you don't have s very high opinion of the way your beloved grandchildren are being cared for. Intimate that the mother's neglect is detrimental to the'heaJth o( the youngsters. Ask repeatedly what they eat and why it is that they have so many colds. If the kid breaks a tooth or is injured during play, get all tiie details and place the blame, on lack of supervision. (2) ft your son has a hutton off his shirt or if his shirt isn't ii'oncd as well as you used to do it when he lived at home, say something. Also mention the hole in his sock or the spot on his coat. It will fan the llame of self-pity and if could start the (inal fight that ends in the divorce court. 1 hope you will reprint the original eight rules along wilh (he two additional suggestions as a refresher course for in- laws. The divorce lawyers from coast to coast are sun; lo profit from a re-run. Thank you. H Happened In -New Mexico DEAR N. MEX.: Thank you (or two splendid additions lo the original eight ways lo break up a marriage. For those who didn't see Ihe first eighl, here they are: (1) When a son or daughter lets you know they plan 10 be married, show open hostility to the person of his choice. After all, marriage means less love and attention for parents and they have a right to resent it. (2) Expect your married children to spend every Sunday and holiday at your home. Act hurt if they have other plans. (3) If your married children have problems with their mates, encourage them Lo come home, no matter what. Lis- len attentively lo all complaints and point out additional faults which may have gone unobserved. Remember, a drop of water at a time can wear away a rock if you keep at it long enough. (4) If your married children are having financial prob lems, rush in with the checkbook. If you are having financial problems yourself, borrow, if necessary, but let them know Ihey'll never have lo do without anything so long as you are around. (51 If a married child has a drinking problem, keep tell- ing him his male drove him to it. It will make him feel better. Everyone needs someone to blame.

Save Tomorrow Oppose Pol- lution, based on a report made by researcher Anemone Ruder, requested tbal cosmet- ics be made subject to strict labelling laws which would make listing all ingredients mandatory. Ms. Ruder, who said she preferred to be identified that way, said STOP became in- terested in cosmetic regula- tions when the organization became aware of possible dangers of the chemca! hex- achlorophene as an additive in cosmetics. Canada imposed restrictions on hexacldorophene last May, requiring that products con- tning more than .75 per cent of the chemical be available only on prescription. Use of the chemical in (he United States was restricted more re- cently after research showed several babies bathed in solu- tions of hexachlorophene suf- I fered brain damage. Ms. Ruder said what started as an inquiry into shampoo, skin cleansing and deodorant products containing hexachlo- rophee led to disturbing find- ings on other aspects of regu- lations on the cosmetics indus- try. ACTION HELD UI' Among the report's findings was that the food and drug di- rectorate, which has jurisdic- tion over cosmetic products, 'can act only after a cosmetic has been sold and has caused injury or has been proven lo have been The report expressed con- cern over evidence that hor- mone creams with a high es- trogen content, advertised to prevent skin wrinkles, are sold without proper labelling, though deemed potentially dangerous in an American Medical Association publica- tion.

Such additives, said Ihe re- port, have no proven benefi- cial results. The report said there Is "hope in sight'' through pro- posed United States legisla- tion which would demand reg- istration o f manufacturers and disclosure of all products, formulas and labels. STOP said It wants this type of legislation introduced in Canada, including the sub- mLsion of test results and manufacturing descriptions of cosmetics made subject to government approval, As a footnote to her re- search, Ms. Ruder advised the consumer lo; guarantee of satisfaction and return them if they don't Isfy.
