Take It Back Most shoppers want to buy high quality food for their family. You probably do, too. If you sometime .should buy a food that is not satisfactory, don't just complain to your neighbor, Find out the policy of your supermarket. The manager, usually, will want you to bring back the container so that it can be returned to the company. Or you may need to bring back a sample of the food. Explain when you bought the item and if it may have been under unusual conditions such as a special sale of the product. Most important, take the product back, or the container, as soon as possible. Don't allow more deterioration before you take it back. That way the situation can be corrected more easily and more quickly. Most food manufacturers want to give you the best quality food. They only can do that with your cooperation of returning poor quality food. Cheating Cause LINCOLN, Neb. (UPI) — Parents' excessively high scholastic standards sometimes cause their children to cheat, says Dr. Leon Rottman. He said parents' excessive worry when they are faced with cheating and stealing situations can also be a threat to the adults' mental health if they lead the parents to worry about "where, we went wrong." Rottman is Extension human development specialist at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln. He said a child of parents who demand A's may be tempted to copy from another student. Honest approval for B and C grades may reduce their need to cheat, he said. CARD OF THANKS I wish to express my thanks and appreciation to Dr. Hull, Dr. Luecha and Dr. Cramm, Fr. Grennan, Fr. Harold, nurses and hospital staff for the wonderful care. Also to my relatives and friends for their prayers, visits, cards, gifts and food. They will always be remembered. Virginia Meyers (adv.)

R. Heart Education Sister Rosann Ge/sner R.N., explains the basic physiology of the heart to William Boyle, Phllllpsburg, during a recent session of the new Coronary Patient Teaching Program at St. Anthony Hospital. MRS. MABEL PAYNE loves children and often is a substitute grandmother for kids in her neighborhood, reading to them, cuddling them and listening to them. They respond with affection and forthright honesty. One tad sat on her lap, held her face firmly in both hands and peered deep Into her eyes. "You know, Mabel, you aren't as new as you used to be!" Honesty may hurt a bit, but Mabel is a good sport. She tells the story herself. THE BUvSY OAYvS of Christmas make many of us feel not so new, but it's a good tiredness. At our house, we anticipate the gathering of the clan, children and grandchildren, for the first time. It's been 18 years since the four Education Aids Recovery ( Meetin 9 s A Coronary Patient Teaching Program was started recently at St. Anthony Hospital, According to Sister Rosann Geiser R.N., the rationale behind the program is to give the patient a basic understanding of what has happened to him, and of what to expect during rehabilitation. "We have found that a patient will be more relaxed and willing to cooperate with a program of gradual return to normal activity following a coronary if he or she understands exactly what has happened and why," she said. In addition, a patient's family will be less fearful and apprehensive about what happened. The tendency for patients to be treated as cripples or invalids by their families will be reduced. According to Sister Rosann, who is responsible for the program and is its primary counselor, the objectives are to offer education about the basic anatomy and physiology of the heart and information about heart disease and its risks to persons who have had. a coronary. The program is also designed to provide instructions on diet, medication, exercise and activity during rehabilitation. If necessary, the program also provides for a follow-up visit to discuss problems or questions a patient may have after dismissal. The teaching program includes a series of instructional sessions with a spouse or other family members. "We usually have four scheduled sessions of in- struction along with the presentation of a filmstrip 'Recovering from a Heart Attack'," Sister Rosann said. "A booklet from the Georgia Heart Association called 'My Heart Attack' is the basi§ for discussion during the program." The filmstrip was purchased through a contribution from the American Heart Association. The Coronary Patient Teaching Program is designed to educate individuals suffering from a heart attack. "Hopefully, it will provide enough valuable information to help heart patients lead a normal life, and to help prevent similar occurances in the future," said 'Sister Rosann. Blackmail No Way To Get Help By JEANNE LESEM UPI Family Editor A working w'ife who wants her husband and children to help with the housework is more apt to get help if she asks for it straightforwardly — even if she starts a fight by doing so. So says Terrance D. Olson, a family and marriage counselor and a professor at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. Olson calls it blackmail if a wife makes pointed remarks behind her husband's back or tries subtlety. "She could say 'I'm sick and tired of doing all this on my own. I need your help.' "Maybe this ... will start a fight, but it could have a positive effect," Olsen said in an interview. "It's a risk, but it ends up being worth taking." He said research shows education increases flexibility, makes a man more willing to be a partner with his wife, to help at home as Olson himself does with his wife, Karen, a former schoolteacher. "I know the demands (on her) are as great or greater than mine at school. I have pretty much an 8 to 5 day. Four mornings a week, I take one daughter to nursery school. It gives us some time together. If I can, I put the kids to bed at least three nights a week. It's good for all of us. It eases the weight of, Karen's day." Olson added that husbands' unwillingness to cooperate in homemaking chores brings on a lot of hostility toward men in the women's movement. "It's backlash. We are getting exactly what we deserve from the way we have treated women. Women have been devalued historically in this country. Our society ridicules men for helping at home. Most of them don't know how to do housework, and most will avoid anything that makes them appear incompetent." Olson, who has five small children of his own, believes in early involvement in both housekeeping and family lei- sUre activities. ' If you wait until kids are teen-agers, they often become rebellious, he said, and parents who try brvjte force ' only make matters worse. When that happens, Olson suggests admitting defeat openly: "Say 'I guess I have to admit I can't force you to help to do anything. I need your help; things would go more smoothly. What are you willing to do?'" Don't expect' immediate cooperation, he warned. "Parents are only willing to try waiting for t,wo or three days, but the teen-age lag may be two weeks. You're not going to break a 15-year habit in two or three days." He, calls "Are you willing?" the key phrase, and urges parents who give choices to be prepared to accept whatever answer is given. Otherwise, it's blackmail again. "You could say, 'I'm willing to drive us to the beach. What are you willing to do?' Your child or children might volunteer to mow the lawn or pack the lunch to take to the beach." Be prepared to fail initially, he said. If you do, "You might say, 'It looks like it's not going to work this time. Let's try again next week.' I predict a more cooperative tone the .next time because you haven't tried force the first time." Sometimes inaction works. If you have been quarreling, harping, complaining, try silence instead, he advised. He said one of the most effective ways of stopping a quarrel is by talking about the quarrelerS'.with someone else in their presence. He and co- counselors work as a team to do just that. Family cooperation is more common at middle to lower economic levels, he said, sometimes from necessity, the survival instinct. As people get mote discretionary income, he said, they begin to look outside the home for fulfillment. Then family orientation begins again at the wealthy level.

Balyuzi's Muhammad and the Course of Islam to the Hays Public Library and Forsyth Library. >. .1, Balyuzi is an author with several biographies to his credit. His books on the Bab and Baha'u'llah are available locally. Members of the Baha'i community thought the public library should have a book on Muhammad because of Islam's position as a major world religion. The group also thought the college, which has many books on Muhammad, should have a book that views Muhammad as a prophet of God. offspring have celebrated the holiday with us and now they bring their spouses and nine youngsters to help us make merry.
