Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, October 23, 1974 Meat prices take a turn for the better Here's a switch grocery bill drops By KATHIE MacLEAN Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge consumer's food bill took a slight dip this month after prices seemed to be on a gradual incline over the past four months. Consumers watching for savings are not being pinched by those penny-here, penny there increases which have existed for so long The Herald's grocery price survey of 54 items carried out this week showed a 63- cent drop in the total food bill to from last month's bill of The survey results, while not an exact monitor of food costs, is an indication of costs of common grocery items that an average family would need regularly. The money-wise shopper could help take the sting out of the grocery bill by keeping a watchful eye on "specials." Special prices on roast leg of pork, tomatoes, chuck roast and kleenex brought the prices down to a pound from three pounds for from 45 cents a pound; 69 cents a pound from 95; and two for from 59 cents each, respec- tively. The price of bread was monitored at last month's costs because the brand normally used in the survey was not available due to a labor dispute. Of the 54 items surveyed, 34 remained at September's price, 11 went up and nine took a step down. While sugar prices seem to be stabiliz- ing at for a 10-pound bag, coffee prices are still climbing, from last month for one pound to Cooking oil jumped from for a 32- ounce bottle to A 48-ounce can of strawberry jam also jumped to from A 32-ounce bottle of dish soap went up six cents to 77 cents while four bars of hand soap rose four cents to 77 cents. Medium eggs increased two cents to 88 cents. In the fruit and vegetable department, lettuce went up to 43 cents a pound from 37, and apples and a four-pound bag of oranges each went up ten cents to 39 a pound and respectively. Canned peas went up to 31 cents a can from two for 53. Last month a 15-pound bag of potatoes cost and this month cost while a three-pound bag of carrots dropped to 69 cents from 73. Bananas went from two pounds for 57 cents to three pounds for 89 cents. Meat costs took a turn for the better with most prices remaining the same as noted last month. Round steak dropped to from pot roast went down ten cents to and bacon dropped to from Special prices of meat will always cut down the overall grocery bill. programs are becoming political football Programs being planned for International Women's Year have become a political foot- ball, says the co-ordinator of the Lethbridge Women's Place. Dianne Paynton and Josephine Staddon of Lethbridge were among 75 delegates from across Canada attending an Oct. 19 and 20 Ot- tawa planning conference for the 1975 women's year, spon- sored by the secretary of state department There was strong agreement that a federation of women's centres was need- ed to give groups a political voice Ms Paynton said the women attending the conference were side-tracked from the main purpose of the meeting discussing goals, priorities and funding for regional and national Women's Year programs when it was disclosed that Sue Findlay, chairperson of the secretary of state women's program, was to be replaced Ms. Findlay is founder of the women's program and author of the proposal for women's year projects which has been granted million by the federal government Ms Paynton said the govern- ment had not consulted with any of the regional women's program workers before mak- ing the decision Ms. Paynton said the women at the conference sent a "strongly-worded" telegram to the secretary of state department, demanding the proposed staff change be rescinded The women main- tain failure to re-instate Ms Findlay will "jeopardize any headway made in government relationships with the volun- tary sector of women's "We feel the replacement of the present chair-person is a government ploy to keep women disorganized." says Ms. Paynton. "But we cannot understand why such a move would be taken at this time, when women's year is big news So far, the delegates have received no official reaction from the secretary of state department. Ms Paynton said that no ac- tual funding decisions were made at the Ottawa conference, but the grant system for women's year was outlined. Of the money allocated, Alberta, Saskatchewan Manitoba and the North West Territories must share says Ms. Paynton. "And the distribution of funds is based on what each region spent in 1974 She said the Lethbridge Women's Place has received from the secretary of state and has requested an ad- ditional "We've heard nothing about our second re- said Ms. Paynton. "But we require as much as for next year, to hire a full-time co-ordinator, to operate day care programs on an occasional basis, and to continue with our on-going newsletter and public presen- tations "We know now we won't get that money, since only is available to the prairie region, so our board is meeting this week to rewrite our LOYAL ORDER OF MOOSE 1234-3rd North REGULAR W1D.

I am not crazy about Jerry holding this kind of a job: but he enjoys it and makes good money. He works every day and two nights a week. Our children are grown and on their own, so the two nights he works I'm at home alone. U seems that Jerry, just because he is employed at this place, thinks he is obliged to help all the customers have a good time. It came back to me through a friend that he often dances with the women who come in and on several oc- casions he has driven them home. When I asked Jerry about this he admitted it. I then demanded to know why he didn't tell me himself. He said, "I knew you wouldn't like it and I didn't want to make you mad I then said. "If you knew it would make me mad, why did you do He answered. "Because it's my job to keep the customers nappy." We are at a standstill on this issue and it is creating a lot of trouble. Every time I bring up the subject when he comes home late and I think he has driven a lady customer home) we get into a fight. Tell me, Ann Landers, am I wrong when I say he should behave hke a 45-year-old married man and not be danc- ing with women who hang around bars and driving them home1 He said. "Wnte to An- nie She's got good sense and will set you straight." So will you please be the judge? Crazy Or Not? Dear Not Crazy: 1 know of no corktaii lounge where the bartenders are expected to dance with customers and fur- nish them with transportation. Tins is stnctiy Jerry's idea of "special hospitality." Since he knows this is creating a problem in your marriage he should knock it off. And you can tell him An- nie said so. Dear Ann Landers: I am a 16-year-old girl who is scared to death. I don't go steady, but there's this one boy I like better than all the others. He is really neat but he has a warped sense of humor. We live in a courtyard apartment on the ground floor. My bedroom is in the back and there's a very nice terrace and lily pond with shrubs and bushes. This nutty kid has been coming to my bedroom window at night, sometimes rather late, and making like he is trying to get in. I've told him to cut the com- edy before my parents catch him. but he thinks it is very funny. Last night I locked my window, pulled down the shade and drew the draperies. He kept hanging around, tapp- ing on the window for almost half an hour. Please tell me what to do to make him stop the foolishness. If he is caught I know my folks will give me orders never to see him again. Snaky Shelly Dear Shell: Doesn't that clown realize he could be arrested as a Peeping Tom or even mistaken fcr a prowler and shot? For heaven's sake, tell him to cancel the alley cat act before he finds himself laughing all (he way to the dis- trict attorney's office. Do yon fee! awkward, self- conscious lonely?
