Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Stptimbtr 9, 19X0- Iii My nion By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer can be one of the cruelest thieves possible. I am not talking about the safety of money or any other such valuables because most people take extra care of them. The health and safety of the family is the most precious item to be lost. According to the drug industry's Council on Ta am- ily Health in Canada, many accidents in the home can be prevented by taking some routine precautions and establishing certain habits. This does not mean grabbing dangerous items away from small children but instead explaining their usage and danger, then giving reasons why they are not to be touched. People are always warned of placing cleaning products, insect sprays, pills and various medication out of the reach of. small children.' But what about your purse? Many items are lo- cated there which could hurt a child and yet so many mothers let their children amuse themselves during shopping trips by exploring a purse. There could be aspirins, safety pins, nail files or perfume. A very common hazard among many people is just the simple delay in putting toys or other objects away. Clutter causes falls and falls cause injury. Even though fruits and vegetables brought home from the market look very clean, many children have spent nights in agony and days away from school with illness. When Christmas time rolls around, broken light bulbs may look pretty strewn on the pot holding the tree but what would the glass and wire do to a child's mouth and throat? Although the carpet is an ideal place to cut material, there may always be that one pin left which gets stepped on. Sore feet or infections are not trivial Mothers dispensing liquid medicine could easily reach for the household teaspoon instead of the proper measuring spoon. With sick children, correct dose- ages of medication is important for the health of the child. Parents can never prevent their families from being subjected to dangers of all kinds. If they did, it is very possible their overly-protected child could be in for serious emotional trouble which is as bad as physical ailment. In my opinion, young children should be allowed "to pursue their natural spirits of adventure. Youth should be made aware of dangers which surround them but not have hazards over emphasized. Most important of all, keep your minds open to your actions and their significance for the safety of others. Sister City PENTICTON, B.C. (CP) One of the assignments handed the Expo 70 concert band from the Okanagan Summer School of the Arts when it made a two- week trip to Japan in August was the presentation of docu- ments to officials of Kofu, nam- ing the Japanese city a sister city of this Okanagan Valley community. The band also play- ed 14 concerts at Expo. Welfare Costs Up TORONTO (CP) John An- derson, Metropolitan Tor onto social services commissioner, said recently million must be raised by November to pay for additional welfare costs. He said the previous budget of million for 1D70 Mil be exhaust- ed by the end of October be- cause of an unexpected addi- tional demand in the last two months. Russians Crave High Priced Consumer Goods Wide-Spread Soviet Capitalism Despite Restrictions By JIOLGER JENSEN MOSCOW (AP) A well- dressed man sidles up to the miniskirtol Russian girl buy- ing bread. "Pssst, Comrade, do you want to buy He opens a briefcase bulging with lipsticks. Eagerly the girl forks out five rabies for a tube of bright ver- milion and hastily leaves the store. The lipstick might have cost her only one ruble, officially U.S., at the East German department store, Leipzig, but chances are she wouldn't have foimd any there. Many sharp Moscow misses go to the bread shop on Kalinin Avenue. The man is one of Moscow's delagi, wheeler dealers. He has a special arrangement with a Leipzig salesgirl who keeps hard to get lipstick under the counter. He pays her dou- ble price and sells for five times the usual price. Fifty three years of Com- munist construction have fail- ed to satisfy the Russian crav- ing for consumer goods or weed out the capitalists who profit from the shortages. The result is sliito krito, or market-on-the- sly. WARES VARY It's supersalesmen are saeer- ingly referred to by the Soviet press as "the last knights of private enterprise." Their wares range from simple items like cosmetics and shirt but- tons to refrigerators, ears and services which the state cannot provide. The Leningrad newspaper Smena Change tells the story of a man who owned his own bus, no small feat in a country where public transpor- tation is run by the state. He went into competition with com- mutsr trams and daily pocket- ed five rubles for making one 60-mile trip. The bus owner's monthly take was 100 times greater than the average Soviet wage, yet he wasn't satisfied. He envied his wealthier neighbor, who hired a qrane to state construction pro- jects. The builders condoned the neighbor's little business be- Personal Pollution Fight Gets Results For Mother YALE, Okla. CAP) Tom- mye .Thompson waded into her favorite fishing hole, came up with pants and shoes squirming with maggots and dead fish, and set out on a personal cru- sade against the forces pollut- ing her environment. The 34-year-old farm wife and mother of three brought smiles to many faces recently when she began prowling oil leases looking for pollution. But nobody's laughing particularly not oil operators. Acting on Mrs. Thompson's complaints, the state corpora- tion commission has shut down one oil lease and warned nine others to correct their ways or face similar action. Mrs. Thompson was spurred to action in August by news that a fish loll on Skull Creek in- volved an estimated fish, and by a similar incident soon afterward. Since July 17, she has spent every day except one looking for pollution from oil and salt water. She leaves her house each morning before eight. "I try to be back in before my husband gets home at she said, "but I don't always make it." She's worn out 10 pairs of canvas shoes crawling up rocky creek beds and over hills. She has fallen out of a tree. BIG 3-DAY THURS., FRI. AND SAT.

She's taken one tetanus shot and often comes home "so tired I can hardly walk." A used car lot owner loaned her a car. She had done about in damage to the family auto, and it was having me- chanical troubles. Cash dona- tions she has received total BIRTH CONTROL USERS About 200.000 of the 17 million women in Mexico took birth control pills in 1969, the Na- tional Academy of Medicine re- cause all their state owned cranes were broken down due to poor maintenance. While such resourcefulness would be admired in the West, it is one of communism's un- forgivable sins. Smena report- ed that both men ultimately were caught and "their enter- prises came to a fatal end." It did not elaborate. ARRESTED FOK PHOTOS "Profit" is a dirty word In the Soviet Union, "profiteering" a crime. A photographer who charged tourists a ruble for having their picture taken at a statue of Peter the Great wound up spending eight years in a labor camp. But there are always delagi to take of those ar- rested. Every city neighbor- hood has a bulletin board where people can exchange apart- ments, offer baby sititng ser- vices and swap household ap- pliances. The fee amounts to about 35 cents. The black market and pri- vate enterprise pervade every- day Soviet life. The housewife who wants a good cut of meat pays extra and buys under the counter. The man who wants his chairs reupholstered finds a state furniture auto mechanics. moonlighting worker. Carpenters, plumbers and house painters free lance openly and profit- ably. Some customers find it easier to pay double than try to get service through bureau- cratic channels. RENT TRUCKS It takes days to requisition a truck to move furniture or some other heavy shipment.

Najdai. olskaya Square, ready to rent state vehicles on state time to private customers. Tlie obliging trackers will also siphon state gasoline out of their own tanks and sell it at half the retail price. Illegal booze sales are the biggest racket. The latest So- viet crackdown on alcoholism requires liquor stores to close at 8 p.m., three hours earlier than before. Enterprising Mus- covites buy vodka before clos- ing time and sell it after nours. The later you buy, the higher Two such dealers got two years in Siberia, says the pa- per Evening Moscow. Liquor store employees often water down vodka and sell pri- vately what they drain off. Moonsline stills flourish in the countryside, here vodka is in. short supplv. Samogon, home brew, is a village staple. Psasar.'s of Georgia, the sun- ny South Caucasus republic, work on' state collectives but h Kremlin makes allowances for their independent ways _ by permitting ownership of size- able private plots. These often outproduce the state farms, which can never supply Euro- pean Russia with enough fruit and vegetables. SELL FRUIT Their suitcases laden with lettuce, radishes, tomatoes, peaches and flowers, Georgi- ans fly north for big profits. An airline ticket from Tiflis to Moscow costs only 31 rubles, and fruit starved Muscovites will pay up to eight rabies for a small bunch of grapes. A foreigner shipping for flow- ers recently in Moscow's Cen- tral Market found the Georgian salesman interested in his gold watch. "Do you want to sell the Georgian asked. "You couldn't afford tin's the visitor replied. The Georgian silently pro- duced a three inch wad of 25- rublo bills. While all this is strictly Ille- gal, the state tacitly condones a certain amount of consumer- oriented capitalism because it realizes the limitations of Its paper ridden bureaucracy. But it cracks down on those who try to become "giants of pri- vate industry." THREE STEPS TO HELP STOP POLLUTION 1. USE OUR COMMERCIAL MACHINES 2. USE OUR SOFTENED WATER 3.
