Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 1, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, September 1, Fixed Income Group Suffers Most Cosl-Of-Living Increases: Canadians Save Less, Charge More By JEAN SHAItP Women's Editor The price of almost every- thing is still going up, but many Canadians say it hasn't affected thicr standards of living in major ways. They save less, use more, wait a year tor a new cur, practise small economies at the grocery store. The Dominion Bureau of Sta- tistics consumer price index for July shows an overall rise of 3.2 points from July of 1909. Their index is on a base of 100 for levels. Their all-items category h3d gone from J2S.4 in July last j year to 130.5. The food index rose from 128.8 to 131.6 in the saira year, housing 125.2 to 131.5, clothing from 124.0 to 126.9. A Cross-Canada SVirvey by The Canadian Press indicates that everyone is aware of the steady climb, but the people most likely to be doing without are those on fixed incomes that shrink with each year. Curie O'Flaherty, 77, of Ot- tawa, says she eats no meat at all because she can't afford it. Mrs. O'Flaherty is a widow and old-age pensioner. She worked as a dressmaker, and is able to keep her clothes in good repair. "Otherwise I'd have to join a nudist colony." Deborah Klatt, 19, of Ayl- mer, Quc., xvorks as a recep- tionist in Ottawa for a year. She is being married soon and says she will wear her sister's wedding dress be- cause she can't afford her own. She buys groceries in a dis- count market and haj smoking to save money. quit "You can't keep smoking and go down and buy yourself a sweater. It's absolutely unbe- lievable. Wages arc so very low but everything is so very high you don't dare buy any- thing." Gary Johnson says: "It hasn't affected the way. I live. I don't buy less, I just go fur- ther in debt." Mr. Johnson works in an Ed- monton bank: He has had a cost-of-living raise and expects a 10-per-cent raise soon. His wife has recently quit work and had a baby. He says the price increases In Winnipeg, Bert Tchaichak, a taxi driver with two children, says the rising costs of food basics and children's clothing present real difficulties. Mr. Tchaichak says he will probably have to jiostpone buy- ing a refrigerator which his family needs. CUT OUT HOLIDAY Mrs. Wilfred McKinnon in St. John's, Nfld., says the family decided against a family holi- day this year because of rising costs. Her husband is manager of a machine firm's branch. They lave six children, and she says their costs were not noticeably when their 18-year-old i son worked away from home he has noticed most are in milk and food. "These are the only tJiings j for lnree months to help pay I've been buying. I can't af- for his college education. rord anything else." I Mrs. Peter Trojan, 56, is a shoe store clerk and wife of an i "My income did increase this year, but not enough to meet the increase in Uic prices of goods." Gillian Hopkins, 29, is a Mon- treal teacher wlvose husband is accountant in Vancouver. Their children arc grown up and on their own. Mr. Trojan says: "We still eat well, we're just saving less. We've got everything we need now. It took us 20 or 30 years to accumulate it, but now we have it. I feel sorry for old age pensioners and young people just starting out." Jerome Harvey, 27, a bach- elor in Quebec City, cams a year as a provincial civil servant. Mr. Harvey says he lias put off buying a stereo set because he can't afford it. "What hits me most is the rent. I have had to put up with a rise of 20 per cent in the rent I pay and some of my Wends have had to put up with no-eases of 35 to 60 per cent. a student. She says teachers' salaries go up regularly enough to keep pace with rising costs, but only fov the two adults. SEEKS BARGAINS "I find I buy certain things in stores where I know they be cheaper.

Of course there was no hint as to who sent them, but I can guess. No wonder you have a lot of fans. You look the other way while people do every rotten thing they can think of and call it "minding your own business." I am a Nosey Landlady and I'm proud of it. Some prop- erty owners don't care who they rent to so long as the money comes in. I'm not one of those. I have nine apart- ments, all occupied by decent, law-abiding, God-fearing girls. Five of my tenants are under 30 and they come from small towns in Indiana and Illinois. I don't rent unless I get right answers to my ques- tions. Before I take a girl's check I want to know where she stands on cigarettes, alcohol, dope, fornication, adultery, religion, gun control, sex education in public schools, com- munism and fluorine in drinking water. My home is my castle and I intend to keep it that way. DEAR LADY GUINEVERE: Thanks for the latest word from Camelot. If I run into any girls who are looking for a room, I'll have them checked out by the F.B.I., give them lie detector tests, have their bodies x-rayed lor impurities and send them over. DEAR ANN LANDERS: What are the chances for this marriage succeeding? Ths boy is 23. The girl is 22. They were officially engaged in January. Norma has thrown the ring in Bob's face tliree times. When he gets home his tele- phone is ringing. She is sorry and wants him to come hack with the ring. Last night they had a hair-pulling fight, Bob refused to come back when Norms called. Her motlier telephoned him and said Norma was going to jump out of the window if he didn't bring the ring back. I am Bob's mother. Do you think after they get married they will settle down and grow up? Please advise. I am worn out and so is everyone else. DEAR 0: Marriage is no cure for these two dingbats. The letter above will give you an idea of what is in store for kids like Norma and Bob. They need to grow up before they consider marriage. With good counselling it will take at least 18 months.
