Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, Stpttmbtr 30, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 -The Herald- Family The Homemaker LINDA WHITSON District Hoiue Economist in training Growing Together that's mr theme for Agriculture Week this year. I can almost tear some of you exclaiming what's this week all Well Agriculture Week is ict 1 to 5 and is aimed at jringing about a better under- standing between the urban ind rural segments of society, used to be that everyone Cither lived on the farm or had grandparents or relatives liv- ng there. Now that's no onger true It used to be that sople living on the farm were iretty well self sufficient, Doming into town perhaps ince a month for a few supplies and the city dwellers rere dependent on the armers around them for their ood That's no longer true either. Farms are specialized now, ot only here around Club corner Southminster UCW will meet at p.m. Thursday in ic church lounge. The ladies of St. Mary's will hold their regular lonthly meeting at 2 p.m luesday in the parish hall. iostess will be Mrs. Sherman. man Citizenship Court will be eld Tuesday in the .ethbridge courthouse Guest .speaker will be Rev.

St. Patrick's CWL general meeting will be held on Wednesday at 8 p.m. in the room Sister Alice )aly will speak on family life sducation in the schools Lethbridge but in all developed countries Cities no longer have to depend on their local producers. And you can take even odds at the check out counter at the super- market on whether the shopper lives on the farm or here in Lethbridge. It's not surprising then that the farmers' wife is getting just as upset about food prices these days. Besides she has another reason for being up- set she knows how little of each food dollar her husband receives. Take bread for example The farmers share of a loaf of bread is only about three cents. And the farm wife knows that the supermarket employee earns about twice as much per hour as her hus- band does. That fact is enough to start everyone wondering where does all the money go? Why do the food bills keep climbing? It's because a lot of things happen to the food between the farmer and you processing, grading, packaging, transporting, delivering, wholesaling, advertising, market repor- ting, retailing. Let's look at our example again. It takes about one pound of wheat to make one pound of bread. Although wheat flour is the main con- stituent of bread, the cost of the wheat has little to do with establishing the cost of the bread. It's the handling, tran- sportation, milling, baking, etc. that make up the main part of the cost. It's all part of the marketing system and it all adds to the cost of getting the food from the farmer to your super- market shelf. And super- market and self senre stores actually save you money by handling food in such large volume. Let's look at another reason why your food bill keeps rising. For one thing, the more income you have, the more you spend on food. This doesn't mean you necessarily buy more food. Usually you buy more of the expensive kinds of food, tender steak, vegetables and fruit of-of- season, and convenience BINGO NION., SEPT. 30 Jackpot in 52 nos.

But remembers that foods which are frozen, pre-cooked, dehydrated or ready-to-serve have to be more expensive, simply because more services have been added. So your changing taste in food, as well as the desire to save time and effort in the kitchen are the major reasons you are spending more dollars in the foods store. Another reason why youi total food bill is increasing can be traced to the purchase of non-food items. Today you can buy almost anything in food stores from cosmetics, toothpaste, soap, knives and pens, to lightbulbs and theii cost is added to your "food bill" ir If you are not a member of Weight Watchers- Have a meeting onus!

Ocdfeir 1st, Mi ml 151k WEIGHT WATCHERS Ann Landers Researchers find mild concussion hurts intellect By BOYCE RENSBERGER New York Times Service NEW YORK Minor con- cussions of the head that can cause a brief loss of con- sciousness or the effect of "seeing stars" but produce no apparent physical damage have been found by two New Zealand researchers to impair intellectual function for as much as five to seven weeks afterward. The chief after-effect is. a reduction in the ability men- tally to take in and process in- formation. This can lead to an inability to concentrate that, in many job settings, can be so disconcerting that persons become tense, worried and irritable The stress can bring on severe headaches. While a post-concussion syn- drome of nervous instability has been widely recognized, especially among victims of severe head injuries, medical authorites have generally been unable to define its nature enough to recommend specific treatment or preven- tion methods. By identifying the impair- ment as one involving the brain's information process- ing rate, the New Zealand researchers psychologist and a neurosurgeon say they have been able to prevent the development of the more severe symptoms by counsel-" ing concussion patients to resume their normal workloads very slowly. Patients who are not told of the temporary impairment frequently develop the severe symptoms and then complain to doctors who are ignorant of the connection with a previous concussion. As a result, the researchers said, the patients can work themselves into a neurotic state that prolongs the symptoms for months and years. The report, published in the Sept. 14 issue of the Lancet, a British medical journal, was written by Drs. Dorothy Gronwall, a psychologist, and Phillip Wrightson, a neurosurgeon. at the Auckland Hospital in Auckland. Their study was confined to concussion patients whose in- jury was not sufficient to frac- Domestic duties need recognition CALGARY (CP) Domestic duties and child rearing must be recognized as worthwhile contributions to a marriage partnership, says a subcommittee report of the Calgary status of women ac- tion committee. "Although the contributions of each partner in the marriage may be very different in economic terms, the work they both do in their different spheres is of equal importance to the family un- the report said.

Although an inexact term, "concussion" generally refers to a temporary paralysis of the entire nervous system caused by a blunt blow to the head Although in severe cases the paralysis can halt breathing long enough to cause death, in the vast majority of instances breathing and other vital nerve regulated functions resume within a few seconds. "Most patients who have suffered a minor concussion recover rapidly and are soon bick at the scientists wrote "A few continue to complain of symtoms which may be severe enough to dis- able them." The researchers said that even among those who return- ed to work feeling as if they had suffered no after-effects, post-concussion syndrome could develop "Jobs which he could previously have done they wrote, of the typical case "now require his whole atten- tion and therefore soon tire him. Tasks which require simultaneous attention to a number of factors are quite beyond his capacity, and this he interprets by saying that he cannot concentrate. Stress mounts, and with it headache and irritability In some patients the psy- chological reaction to such a situation can develop into a severe neurotic condition that prolongs the otherwise tran- sient symptoms for months and years, Wrightson said in a telephone interview.

Dear Ann Landers: When my husband died he left me with no money, no insurance just two married children. I never went to my children for help I sold all my fine things to pay the hospital and doctor bills Then 1 went back to work. My first child never asks for anything and never gives me anything, which is 0 K. My se- cond child has borrowed sizable amounts of money from me and when I ask for repayment I am treated like some kind of a greedy monster. Both my children spend money like it's going out of style They never heard of Mother's Day, my birthday, Christmas, or Easter I have good friends I'd like to visit on the coast and if my child would pay back at least part of the "loans" could make the trip Any ideas'7 X-Rated Mother Dear X: Keep asking Suggest or a week, anything to show good faith.
