Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 78, 1772 THE HERAID 3 Margaret urst Setting ge tiled-ah-getting settled! I'm In a beauty salon and a prelty little lass named Carolo has, alas, washed Alberla com- pletely out of my hair.

Although Winnipeg has been my home for move than tliirly years and I visited if several limes in my years in Lcth- bridgc, I am already grum- bling ahout its rollen streets (worse than Third or Fourth Avenues) it's maniacal dnvers and the lack of friendly warmth found in a smaller city. Just imagine. Yesterday 1 walked down our bnck lane (alley in Lethbridge) and a woman walked right by me without so much as a look in my direclion. If this indifference happens in Lethbridge it's as rare as snow in July all August. Well, whenever, it cevtainly doesn't say much for legendary western friendliness. The Ihing about moving is that the housewife in charge finds memory inevitably fails- Mind you, the professional mov- ers do a dandy job of packing away, in mounds of paper and countless boxes, all dishes, orn- aments, pots and pans and so forth.. But they are not respon- sible for sorting out lingerie, or lowels or all the personal items you know you'll be need- ing right from the time they're hauled into the von to the lime they're unloaded in your new home. I thought when 1 packed the heating pad with the Christmas ornaments that I'd remember what I did with it, It seems to me I established a relationship that was relevant between these items, but I promptly forgot what it was. If I hadn't dropped the box of ornaments i.i a reshuffling process a few days ago, the whereabouts of the heating .pad would have re- mained a mystery until Christ- mas. I also Uioughl I'd been care- ful with my husband's clothes hut he, man-like, picked holes in my organizational process. Since his wardrobe is anything but extensive. I simply put ties, socks and shirts with his three suits according to his fav- orite color schemes.

Then I remembered the man had arrived lo disconnect the slove and I'd hurriedly stuffed the socks into any old putket, thinking I'd get avound to them later. didn't, of course, as the result was evinced dur- ing the offering. There seems lo me an allegory in this little situation, but at present it es- capes me. Now I've moved around enough so lhat unpacking and settling usually holds interest- ing lillle surprises. 1 found a tlungamajig inside a dainty teacup, all wrapped up ever so careful-like, but I don't know what it is. It looks like the top of a pen, or a small fixture, bul lo date it's silting on Ihe kitchen windowsill displaced something or other. Ard f don't fool around getting settled cither I know pretty well where everything is lo go and the moving men obliging- ly follow my directions. I usu- ally work up to 11 hours, getting things put away, then get uo early and get going the next day to finish the job. iliiul you, this means minor things like gelling prettied up a bit go by the board and dis- Iraelions, such as visits from the paper boys and milkmen soliciting business are there- fore not too much appreciated.

I tried to be gracious and charming but it's difficult to cany on a stim- ulating chat over mounds of paper and knowing that by comparison you look like Ty- phoon Tillie. And of course at the height of a political campaign everyone's doorbells are constantly being rung by fresh-faced political hopefuls. When the bell lolled for me, there I was in grub- by jeans, an old man's tattered shirt (I mean a man's old tat- tered smudges on my face and a wrinkled scarf hold- ing my witch's hairdo down.

An obvious problem with studying changes in attitude to- wards caste, or anything else for thai matter, is the absence of a reliable starting point.

Conse- quently, it is riddled with .in incredible number of mistakes 2nd discrepancies thai reduce it to almost a comedy of er- rors. Some are trivial and merely annoying.
