36-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD October 31, 1973 Socializing pleasant duty Premier's wife follows election trail MONTREAL (CP) The wife of Liberal Premier Robert Bourassa believes firmly in the human touch on the election campaign trail. "The last election in 1970 I went everywhere with my husband." said Andree Bourassa. "I love the social part of politics, meeting people, attending func- the rest I gladly leave to the politicians." In the 1970 election, the first time Robert Bourassa fought to become premier, said Mrs. Bourassa. "we had to be everywhere in the province and there was little time to concentrate on the riding." She referred to Montreal's Mercier constituency, a work- ing-class riding where the pre- mier grew up and delivered groceries on his bicycle through the very streets where he campaigned for his victory Monday. "This time I decided it would be more useful if I stayed in the riding, meeting the voters and representing my husband. I hated all that flying anyway and I don't believe any election should be considered a sure thing." LONELY? Join the Fun and Friends Club The friendliest, happiest spot in town.

"And sometimes people told me that they already were committed to another party. I don't press them, just ask them to take some literature and to reconsider." Mrs. Bourassa added: "Sometimes they tell me that PQ workers have already been to their doors twice. Then I know what I am doing is necessary. There is no such thing as a sure thing." Mrs. Bourassa loves pleasing. This was evident in her tireless efforts for her husband in his hours of meeting the organizers, the door-to-door sessions, the appearances at small gatherings. But she has learned that one can't please all of the people all the time.

He tells you to get a larger girdle and prescribes some medication to calm your shattered nerves. You take your prescription to your druggist and pay for 100 tablets. You tell yourself that's the price of feeling calm and carefree again, and it's worth it. Then one of your formerly- uptight friends tells you she got the same stuff at half the price. What gives? Probably your doctor wrote a prescription for a brand of drug that happens to cost more than the same product distributed by a number of generic drug companies. According to the Depart- ment of Consumer and Cor- porate Affairs, your friend wasn't lying when she told you she paid only half as much as you did for the same drug. The difference was in the trade name. How does the ordinary con- sumer find out about these lower cost drugs? The Department of National Health and Welfare dis- tributes a monthly publication, Rx Bulletin, to doctors. dentists, veterinarians and phar- macists. This bulletin contains infor- mation on newly-marketed drugs plus price information for five or six different drugs each month. The various brands are ranked according to cost, so that medical men can see at a glance which company sells the most expensive product, and where the best buys are. If the doctor is thinking of his patient's pocketbook as well as his or her health, he can prescribe one of the lower cost products. The department of con- sumer affairs cites phenylbutazone, a drug com- monfy prescribed for chronic arthritis, as an example. One of the most popular brands Costs for a month's supply, including about for the dispensing fee. In contrast, the same quantity of phenylbutazone distributed by one of the small generic drug suppliers wouk cost about almost five dollars less! All drugs listed in the Rx Bulletin, says the department of consumer affairs, must meet federal government standards of identity, purity, weight variation and dis- integration time. There is no harm in discuss- ing drug prices with your doc- tor. He may be perfectly will- ing to save you some money by giving you a prescription for a cheaper drug providing he knows it is a satisfactory substitute for a dearer one. Try it on for size the next time you are given a prescrip- tion, and remember to men- tion the Rx Bulletin. Casseroles come in many guises. One that fills the need for more vegetables on the daily menu is a Concord Cab- bage casserole.
