That sparkling and all-impor- tant diamond fills today's needs much better and adds a special loving touch. Choosing (he perfect ring is an important occasion, and may cavise some concern for t h e young couple.

"The couple should look for color, clarity and brilliance in a diamond." he said, "with a blue-white color bosi, and a poor stone showing up yellowish and dull. "In Lethbridjo. most retail jewellers carry only the top level quality gems." Mr. King added that a poor quality diamond is fairly ob- vious, even to the untrained eye. A diamond is enhanced by the setting, which is designed by an expert goldsmith who strives to set off the bfauty of the stone. Price of a diamond is influ- "It gives him leeway to he'll come back tomorrow, and make the final choice. "Many times, the mui would like to ask questions, or make financial arrangements. Doin" this at the time the diamond is picked seems to take away from moment." said Mr. King. He concluded that when bu% ing the diamond, a couple should "both show enjoyment and pleasure and appreciate what is happening. "It's a big tiling, and it's sup- posed to show the beginning of everlasting love. You're not buying a pair of shoes or the family groceries.'1 Mrs. Myrtle Short of Riiworth Jewellery commented' on the type of" stones, settings and overall price range.

''A simple but sop [list icated style, I feel, is Ihe most ap- pealing." Part and parcel of the buy- ing process is consideration for the other person involved, said Mr. King. "When a young couple is buy- ng a ring, you have to remem- that the man is buying out he also wants to buy a ring she'll want. "She should have the sense to know what price bracket he can afford indicate which ring, or rings, she likes."

"The best thing for a young couple to do." she said, "is to go to a reputable jeweller; to someone is established and you know or trust.11 Mrs. Short said couples should look for a quality stone, one which is free of flaws and car- boa. "This is what the jeweller is there for; to point out differ- ences and help the couple un- derstand what they are getting. "A good dealer will offer con- tinued service through the said Mrs. Short, "such as the occasional cleaning and checking to make sure the ring is free of chips or cracks." She stressed the need to avoid embarassing situation when j purchasing a diamond, saying! the girl should be aware of an i acceptable price range before-; hand. Mrs. Short added- that the couple should go together to buy, but the final choice should be up to the girl, as "she's the one who has to wear it and be proud of it." Popular trends lean toward the return of yellow gold, with wide settings, and often, with rough finish. "it's always a good idea to have Ihe girl try on many j said Mis. Short, "as i not every style suits or looks good on certain people." T She concluded, "take time to i choose, and don't buy just on the prospect that she'll accept.

Plans for the commu- lity supper to be held Nov. 3 All executive members asked to attend. by MAUREEN JAMIESON ptTY the poor politician without a wife how can he possibly win an election? She doesn't really have to do anything he says- just be there. All that's expected of her is that she be the world's most perfect mate the eternal girl-next-door with sterling character and good teeth. As the campaign gains momentum, she supports his campaign by graciously throwing open her life for the media to explore in detail. TV cameras move into her home, showing her surrounded by 25 children or grandchildren, upon her age. All these little darlings, you will note, have smooth hair and matching sox; not a runny nose or bl.ack eye among the lot. The lady of the house smiles serenely as the assort- ed offsping laugh gaily and trail wheat germ across the carpet as they joyfully shoot down clay pigeons in the living room. The camera pans in for a close-up of starched shoe cleaning rags neatly hanging by her gleaming gar- bage Finally it swings over to where a succulent tur- key and a ham are spattering merrily away in the oven, while she warms up a leftover souffle in the dishwasher. You just know she won't even pat an eyelid when her husband surprises her with fifty unexpected guests for supper; and you can take bets there'll be no old jelly jars or vegetable knives on the table to make the settings go around. Radio moves in next, and you hear a blow-by-blow description of her sitting calm and relaxed in her favorite chair, surrounded by good literature, after a busy morning scrubbing down her sweet little old mansion from cellar to attic with her own fair hands. In the two brief minutes she has free before pour- ing concrete for the patio her husband is building in the back yard, she gives the newspaper a feature story. She covers in depth such subjects as child discip- line, transforming leftover boiled pudding into ketchup souffle, a good old-fashioned hand cream recipe, and how to. operate your own concrete mixer and pneu- matic drill. One thing really bothers me about all this. What about the other side of the coin? What will the world now expect of the female candidate's spouse? While the lady bellies up the audience and thumps the podium wilh clenched fist will hubby be pres- ent in his chic little home-made cony of a chartreuse Dior one-piece jump suit, lavishly trimmed with sable? Will he mingle with the mobs, swapping pickle recipes and babv pictures with other proud papas? In frcnt of the TV cameras that spread his image across the nation from coast to coast will he deftly, with nerveless hand, shovel the pablum into the baby instead of onto the floor? Will he be her unfailing backstop throughout the four years? What do you think? "sin and ou t vill be finalized. Mrs. Frank Russell will speak on a few im- ilications of the Worth report.
