Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Soturdoy, 107S family life by MAUREEN JAMIESON face it some days you feel you're losing the battle for survival. Take last Thursday, (and I do wish you I popped a deep fryer filled with fat on to the cooker, and went across the room lo answer the phone. Some time later, as I chattered away, I happened to notice flames shooting out of the pot. With great presence of mind I dashed over, grabbed the burning fryer, and lowered it into the sink. Then I fished around and found a lid to smother the flames- only not quite soon enough. It wasn't so much the cracked counter top or the little bits of charred curtain floating around that bothered me. It wasn't even the fact that we had to evacuate the premises for the next couple of hours to let the smoke clear. The snide, sneaky remarks those rotten kids of mine kept tossing around as they roared with laughter were lowering my wife-and-mother image. By the time we got hack into the house, all that primitive schoolroom humor was starting to get to me; but no way was I going to let those little monsters have the satisfaction of knowing it. Seeing the kitchen was a mess anyway, I thought I'd take out my mad on the fridge. Armed with kitchen knife and hammer, my usual defrosting equipment, I went lo work banging and bashing at the huge chunks of ice on the freezer area. Chopping and chipping away, I was suddenly at- tacked by a vicious spurt of liquid, right between the eyes. Willyum came rushing out to see what I was yelling about, and examined the scene of the crime. In lu's best Scottish voice of doom, he announced that we now had on our hands a fine new heap of scrap metal which would have to be put out to pasture. This superior sort of male chauvinist altitude went on all weekend to the point where I was seriously considering going over to women's lib. Until Sunday, that is, when I accidentally remem- bered that it couldn't have been more than a month ago he'd lost his temper and kicked the leg of the table, right at dinner time. The leg went down for the count, and we not only lost several dishes and glasses, but after mopping the Hungarian goulash, Australian style, off the floor, we had had to settle for peanut butter and jelly sand- wiches. And right away, I felt lots better. After all, who cares about the odd battle or two? With a memory like mine, 1 just know I'm going to the whole war! __ Police put bite on iido TORONTO (CP) Police put the bite on a canine crim- inal Sunday along with two suspected young humnn ac- complices. The dog was used as an ad- vance scout in break-ins at schools, churches and syna- gogues, police said. The mutt was sent into a building through a broken window. I it encountered people, it barked and ran oub again.

Groenen, pholo Bourgeois western fashions infiltrating Soviet Union By HEDRICK SMITH New York Times Service MOSCOW, In the quiet iroccss of borrowing fashions rom Ihe bourgeois west, Sfv et men feel they are falling lehind their women. The women ire gelling an increasing, hough still modest, flow of chignons, patterned panty hose and pants suits. But men com- plain they can't find a decent wide tie. "Why do you like tall, curly- laircd blonds with wide scar- ,et ties and matching handker- chiefs in their breast A male columnist in the gov- ernment newspaper Izvestia asked feminine readers the oilier day. "I'm ready, girls, to lake a vow to become hand- some. I'll try to be taller and Wee Whimsy hi! Wte WINNER ORDER OF ROYAL PURPLE RADIO M. KIRKWOOD VANCOUVER, B.C. 137 19th SI.

"Light industry has required :wo years to master Ihe wide the columnist added. And even Ihcn, lie quoted male shop- pers as complaining lhat Ihe rvidesl of Soviet ties "come only four inches wide when peo- ple are now wearing inches." "It seems that it is much more difficult to make a suffi- cient quantity of neckties or beautiful sport shirts than to make a dam across I lie Yenisei Kivev or a factory or to build apartment houses for chimed in the weekly, Nedelya, in a clear reference to the liigher prlorily slill given to industrial projects over con- sumer items. The very appearances of such articles, however, reflects the increasing affluence and fash- ion consciousness of consum- ers in big cities like Moscow and I ho feeling of the parly leadership that it must pay some altenlion to their desires. The haberdashery shop of the Cenlral Department Store on Stoleshnikov Pereulok had a typical offering recently a selection of tired looking slightly rumpled 65-and 90- cent narrow ties. It was a sel ection reminiscent of a cutrate New York store a few years back and it was not atlra cling many buyers. One fashion conscious Hus sian male, attracled by the stir over tho slore's special ship- ment of wide ties recently, con fessed that he had given up in frustration because the waitin) line was 50 yards long am outside the store. "From what I could see, the ties weren't worth the he remarked. He was sporting a broad, brightly colored fou lard, homemade from quality proof material Ilia evidently had been irnporlec from abroad.

She said there arc many lit- tle things which can be made in order to help with daily living. "Utensils, for said Hi's. Gardner, "can be bent and sliaped to fit into a paraple- gic's hand. Those who haven't the proper feeling in their hands can use these shaped utensils to have better control and be able to feed themselves easily." Persons confined to wheel chairs may find a flat piece of board, kept in Ihe chair, of great help in sliding In and out of cars, she said. "Of course, cars with hand controls are available, and tliis makes getting around she added. In the home, all tilings should be "guaged to accommodate Ihe wheelchair."

Li fact, added Mr. Lewis, "many of our female candi- dates arc not so worried about being defeated as about being elected." Most have responsi- bilities elsewhere, such as at home or in a career.
