Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THl UTH8KI08E HERAID Saturday, Sopfemfeir 1, 197J family life by MAUREEN JAMIESON ALL WAS QUIET on the home front this summer, and 1 must admit it took a lot of the pizzazz out of going home at night. In past years, after a hard day slaving away over a hot typewriter, there was always something to break the monotony of dirty socks, lost pajamas and mangled cookies. Generally, whatever happened involved our girls the day our terrible twosome found a can of spray caint in the basement. While "our elder daughter merely looked mod with green hair, our youngest was a disaster area. Her tresses were beautifully green and sticky on one side, but the can had run dry before she'd got around to the other. She looked that way most the summer. Try as we would, we couldn't get the paint out. That was shortly before what is usually referred to in our home as The Fieldmouse Incident. The girls had found the little lifeless body lying on the driveway and insisted on observing the approp- riate formalities. Together we hunted up a nice blue chocolate box with ribbon on top, and solemnly interred the late Mr. Mouse among our marigolds. I thought their concern rather touching, and pour- ed out the tale to my Willyum over the dinner table that night. When I cams to the end ol my recital, elder daughter unexpectedly took up the thread. "Oh that's not all. Mommy. We got to worrying about the poor little thing catching cold." I was assailed by that dread feeling known to parents from Antarctica to Zanzibar, and of course I was right. "We dug it up and wrapped it in a kleenex, said our youneKf with a sweet, innocent smile. "And our 'neighbor is such a kind lady, so we took it into her house and put it in her handbag to keep it nice and warm." I reached over to the phone and dialed the next- door number. The receiver clicked at the other end, and a mild case hysterics was going on in the background. Quietly I hung up. The mouse had obviously been found. IT PAYS TO DIVERSIFY Proprieters of this commercial enterprise the onset of cooler weather, financial advisers have suggested that have a good sidewalk business going for them, but they're not resting these resourceful youngsters move into coffee and hot chocolate.

Price best indicator OTTAWA (CP) Consum- ers should choose permanent- press sheets by price rather than brand, says the Consum- ers' Association of Canada. Since ttieir introduction years ago, permanent- press bed linens, also called durable press, have captured more than two-thirds of the Canadian market. Tests conducted by the asso- ciation concluded that after 50 launderings, sheets containing a blend of 50-per-cent cotton and 50-per-cent polyester were superior in appearance and durability to 100-per-cent cot- ton permanent-press sheets in both muslin and- percale. Laundering strengthens cot- ton-polyester sheets. The weight of a sheet U no measure of its strength. The association said that in 100- per-cent .cotton sheets, the permanent-press finish weak- ens the fabric, so a heavier cotton must be used. By December, new fibre- cofttent labelling laws will re- quire all bed linen manufac- turers lo list their address or a code on a sewn-in label. Care labelling is still not regu- lated and can be found in an assortment of places. Warm-water washing and loose tumble-drying In a warm cycle with cool-down process is recommended. Linens should be removed im- mediately from the dryer to avoid wrinking. All-cotton sheets do not seem to benefit from the per- manent press finish, although colors and patterns will not show the wrinkles as much as plain white sheets.

Hunger strike successful: orphans here by Christmas HAMILTON, Out. (CP) [Tie mother wlio brought two Bangladesh babies to Bur- ington in July, plans to bring 50 more war orphans to Cana- dian families by Christmas. And Helke Ferrie is hopeful she will be able to triple her own family within the next few months with the addition of two boys from South Vietnam. Mrs. Ferrie said in an Inter- view here that the federal government has promised transportation for a 12-jnember volunteer contingent to Bangla- desh in late October. The contingent, including two Eurlingtou doctors, hopes to bring back 50 children to eli- gible parents in seven prov- inces. The 24-year-old Mrs. Feme did not give details ol the free federal plane ride to Bangla- desh, but she said it resulted from a telephone call to Ottawa several weeks ago. "There is forest of details and technicalities but they are doing everything they can so le trip can be made as soon as STAGED HUNGER STRIKE Mrs. Ferrie gained national rominence last June when she ;aged n 4V4-day hunger strike o protest what she termed an ndless delay by a provincial overnment department in de- crmlning her suitability to dopt children. She called off the strike when be became, convinced the pro- vincial government would do iverything possible to assist people who want to adopt chil Iron from foreign countries. Mrs. Ferris and her husband, 3r. Robert Ferrie, a surgeon at :oseph Brant Memorial Hospi- al, arrived from Bangladesh with 15 orphans July 20, after a 24-day trip. Since then she said she has received numerous inquiries on idojtion procedures for Bang- adesh orphans. She now has 50 implications that meet all ths iligibllity requirements, but she will continue to take appb'cants until Oct. 1.
