Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 21, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Odobir 91, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: It seems like a new set of etiquet- te guidelines should be established to help conservative, square, confused, parents whose unmarried children (fresh out of their teens) are living with someone as man and wife. Our two daughters have been living with their boyfriends for over a year. Neither has plans for marriage at the pres- ent time because "it isn't necessary." How do we evade the truth when confronted by friends 'and grandparents? When children marry, an announcement appears in the papers, but we seem to have acquired a cSuple of sons-in-law by virtue of the fact that they are shacked up with our daughters. Should we admit it and let the chips fall whore they Mixed Mates DEAR MIXED: Where did you get the idea these two jockers are sons-in-law? They are simply friends of your daugh- ters. The light-housekeeping arrangement may be for the boo- o-links, but you are under no obligation to explain, defend or discuss it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm getting fed up reading in your column that brides who fail to send thank-you notes are lazy, ignorant, or bereft of manners. One woman even had the -gall to complain because the note wasn't LONG enough. Our daughter was married three months ago. She was brought up right and I have never had to apologize for her manners. At this moment she has three gifts which she can- not acknowledge because she doesn't know who sent them. One card is illegible-sent from a resort. My daughter wrote to the resort to trace the gift and they could not help her. The other two gifts were sent from local cash sales, no records. No cards. So, please tell your readers that sometimes when a bride fails to acknowledge a gift, there may be a good Hutchinson, Kan. DEAR HUTCH: I've said repeatedly that after a reason- able length of time, if no acknowledgement is received, the giver should contact the bride (or high school grad. etc.) and ask if the gift reached her. If it WAS received and the recipient is embarrassed because she hasn't gotten around to letting you know, that's perfectly you made no boner. She deserves to be embarrassed. Please send inquiries and requests to Landers Reader- mail Department, Chicago Sun Times-Daily News, 401 North Wabash Ave., Chicago, 111. 60611. _____ ana out of town Sigma Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi held its fall Preferential Tea at the home of Mrs. Kay PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES JACKPOT LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upitnirs) EVERY THURS-8 p.m. Martin, 2105 10 Ave. A S.

Each year since the first consultants were appointed in 1989, they convered to talk with departmental officials about new or planned con- sumer protection legislation and trade information on con- sumer problems and pro- grams in their regions. Department spokesmen say they are informed and inter- esting and contend many con- sumers could benefit by talk- ing to them, given enough time. But since there are rela- tively few consultants for a vast land, they have to direct most of their information about such things as the fed- eral government's consumer protection legislation at larger audiences. They speak to groups of consumers and re- tailers, and give radio and tel- evision talks. They keep in touch with consumer and retail organiza- tions and help consumers with complaints, although the con- sumer may take these direct to the department by writing The Consumer, Box 99, Ot- tawa. There are consultants for the Atlantic region, Quebec, Ontario, the Prairies and Brit- ish Columbia. Regional man- agers are in Halifax, Mont- real, Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver, with consultants working out of each of these cities and assistant consult- ants in St. John's, Nfld., Fred- ericton, Regina and Edmon- ton. 'Names of note9 important says Trinidad journalist OTTAWA (CP) Are Cana- dian women's pages ignoring wine-and-eheese parties in their search for women's liberation? Lillian Fraser, a Trinidadian journalist visiting friends in Ot- tawa recently, said Canadian women's editors don't seem to realize that most women want to read about "names of note" and the thoughts of the ordinary housewife. Miss Fraser is host of a three-hour daily radio program in Trinidad, and is women's page editor for an is- land daily, Trinidad Express. It is not unusual for her read- ers to come upon a list of more than a hundred VIP guests who attended one of the island's many diplomatic functions. And in 17 years in the busi- ness, she said she has the most success with interviewing housewives "on just about ev- erything." Sent by her paper to cover the Niagara Grape Festival in St. Catharines, Ont., Miss Fraser expressed incredulity at the lack of attention in Canadian women's pages to social activi- ties. PARTIES IGNORED "St. Catharines had a number of cheese-and-wine parties al- most every night and there was no report at all of these." Women's liberation and equal- ity, prime topics here, are only "talked about abstractly" by Trinidadians, she said. "They haven't reached us yet and I'd say the general attitude is that the women don't want them to. "The women in Canada do talk about liberation, politics and the government, but they talk among themselves and don't do anything about them." In Trinidad, more popular non-social subjects for women were birth control and educa- tion. Miss Fraser said there is some favoritism for women in Trinidad, but little discrimina- tion. She was former host of a ADD TO FINAL RINSE When used, most fabric soft- eners should be added only to the final rinse because of their incompatibility with other laun- dry ingredients.

"If you're capable of doing a job, they'll listen to you." The consultants' jobs vary somewhat by regional needs. In Vancouver, for instance, they handle a heavy load of complaints. This doesn't leave them time to do as much work with retailers as the Winnipeg consultant. Tannis Yankewicz. She holds sessions with buy- ers and administrators of large department stores. She tells them what concerns con- sumers have and in turn learns about their problems. "Whatever we do, the basic intent is to create just a little more equity in the market- says Sally Merchant, an assistant consultant in Ed- monton. Nancy Downing, Montreal, says much of a consultant's work is-trying to help consum- ers help themselves. "A well-informed consumer is his own best protection in the adds Lois Smith of Vancouver.
