Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THS HfRAlD S.pltmbsr 57, 1W2- -famil y Professional fees seldom displayed EDMONTON Law- vers, dentists and doctors should post the cost of their services on the walls of their waiting rooms, Doris Walters, vice- president ol the Consumers' Association of Canada, Alberta Division, said here. "They should label the price of their services, just like stores list the price of their she said in an interview follow- ing presentation of a CAC brief to a legislative committee in- vestigating professions and oc- cupations in the province. "The consumer has a right to advance information on the brief said. "Such fee schedules arc seldom pro- vided to the public nor is the consumer given the actual cost in advance as is done in the purchase of consumer goods." Mrs. Walters said the aim of the association is to provide un- biased information on the price of services offered by profes- sional people. Although professional people will provide this information on request, she said the public Is not aware it is available and is reluctant to ask. Most pro- fessional people are not eager to provide such Information freely. She said she agreed with the creation of an independent clearing house lor consumer complaints. 'For example, 1 don't think the Society of Alberta should be the one to discipline lawyers they will favor Lbeir own." During debate on the brief, Mrs. Ruth Wood, Edmontou branch president of the consum- er group, said the consumer generally was reluctant to make any kind of formal complaint. "It's amazing how loath peo- ple are in coming forward with a she said. "They'll talk about it, but they won't sign their name to it." Mrs. Catherine Chichak. MLA for Edmonton Norwood wh< heads the committee, s a i "while the consumers may be at some disadvantage, it is their responsibility to come for ward to slate it." Mrs. Walters said that while the CAC has monitored many verbal complaints against pro- fessions in Alberta, it "ha not received any documented complaints."

Groenen, photo Simple, Iionest answers besl Sex education as important as eating By .JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer "Education is necessary In order for children to operate ef- fectively in the said Joan Puckett in her opening statement at the Family Ser- vices' series on human sexual- ity.

"If this is not given, a part of him is stunted and impaired." Mrs. Puckett, a counsellor with the family services, added hat "withholding information contributes to the breakdown of he parent child relationship." She said the "child's curiosity s not going to dwindle away and die out he will resort o other areas ones that could be dangerous and misin- 'orming." As a result of parenlal refusal ;o answer questions, the child may "learn to liide all his feel- ings." This contributes to a breakdown in the sphere of com- munication. Discussing sexuality with child often brings to mind dif- ficulties which might arise on the part of the parent. Mrs. Puckett listed such areas as embarassment, explanations which are beyond both parties understanding and a feeling ol having the child's questions threaten the parent's own sex- uality and his or her definition of it. "Many parent also exper- ience anxiety about their own sell she said, "and often these questions slir mem- ories of our own adolescence ones that were painful, anx- ious or fearful." When discussing sex, she said parenls should keep in mind some essentials. "Every untrue answer under- mines the child's confidence and faith In said Mrs. Puckett, "and evasions and re- jections encourage s e e k Ing other information which1 can lead to bizarre altitudes about sex organs and the sex act. Evading questions "removes parental guidance" of the child impairs healthy adult attitudes in relationships and develops "negative attitudes and behav lors which are carried over particularly into she said.

By reading a book on the sub- ect together, both parent and hild will benefit, she said. "Don't just hand it to them it's cold and detached and mechanical and gives no human nvolvemenl." In conclusion, Mrs. Puckelt ait! there is a need to recog- nize children are not an exten- sion of the parent, but persons of their own and leading their own life.

SUPERMARKET executive recently told the CBC-TV network that food prices may well rise 30 per cent during 1972. Which means it's going to be harder than ever to balance the food budget; and it will hurt even more to see what I consider unethical practices in some stores. F'rinslance I usually use the scales in the prod- uce department when I grocery shop. Rarely do I find the scales on which customers weigh their fruit and vegetables co-incide with those very accurate sets at the checkout stands.. Even more rarely do I find the produce costs less than I figured. These customer scales are always and ever on the verge of being adjusted when any comment is made. However, lately they seem to be getting even worse. Last weekend I painstakingly weighed out worth of fruit, and found that by the time I reached the checkout stand it had mysteriously transformed itself into a value. That's exactly 34 per cent more than I wanted to pay on one item alone! Then there's another sales gimmick popular with some who evidently regard themselves as smart oper- ators. Come the weekend, these acute businessmen are absolutely amazed to find themselves sold right out of a popular brand. A lesser known brand of the same product sometimes more expensive is stacked in its place. It takes a great deal of hard work for me to con- vince myself that an experienced executive, accus- tomed to controlling thousands and thousands of items, should inadvertently forget major sellers at such a convenient time! 1 think the time has come for a Shoppers' Libera- tion Movement.

Slim by learning rules By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor You Women9s status advancing but pressure still needed TORONTO (CP) only need two per cent of fat in your whole diet and you can get that in the natural fats in meats and vegetables and in foods such as canned fish. You don't need to add any fat in the form of cooking oils and spreads and if you're trying lo lose weight, you'd be- much better off without the extras. loosing weight by learning and applying the rules of nu- trition is the idea behind the new Canadian family meal plan for weight watchers, set up by Adelaide Daniels, direc- 10.- of Weight Watchers of On- tario Ltd., in consultation with nutritionist Dr. Barbara Mc- Laren. Dr. McLaren is former dean of the faculty of food sciences at the University of Toronto. Dr. McLaren says desirable weights for various heights havf been established by re- search. "My own rule of thumb for a woman is 100 pounds for the first live feet and five pounds per inch after that. For a man it's 110 pounds for five feet and five and half pounds per inch. "Those values work and most Canadians are over- Dr. McLaren ran a weight- study clinic for years and she said the results persuaded her of the preventive value of keeping weight down with a proper diet. "We found lhat when people lost weight on a proper diet, that cholesterol and other precursors of heart attacks were lower in their systems." She says there is a physical reason for the difficulty some people have in keeping weight off. CALGARY (CP) The status of women has come a long way ui law and principle hut pressure is needed from women's groups to implement specific programs, says Freda Paltiel, federal co-ordinator of the status of women. In a public address given, at the University of Calgary, Mrs. Paltiel said the government "Is generally responsive to the wishes of and she outlined legal changes and gov- ernment moves favoring women in the last two years. Mrs. Palllel, also a member of the Privy Council of Canada, asked Calgary women to write their elected representativ ft s regarding discrimina11 on against them in Alberta. She was appointed co-ordina- r after the Report of the Royal Commission on the Status of Women was tabled in the House of Commons in 1970.

MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) An association has been formed in this eastern Kentucky com- munity to recognize persons of Indian descent who have no tribal affiliations. The National Association of Indlar.s, Inc., was chartered by the state Sept. 13. Its founders refer to it as Metis, a word moaning people of mixed whits and Indian blocd. One of the five founfers, Bob Christian, a Morehead sign painter, says there are similar groups in Canada hut that this may be the first of its kind in the United Stales. lie said unlil a few years ago, anyone who was one thirty-second part Indian was enlitled to federal enrolment in an Indian tribe. Today, however, the restric- tions require a person to be a quarter Indian for enrolment in a tribe. Christian estimated that leaves 10 million perrons of Indian extraction with no tribal affiliations. Christian, part Cherokee and part Choclaw, said he plans to travel lo South Carolina next week to New York the following week to promote ihe organization.
