NELSON A Town Meeting was hosted by the Women's Division of the Provo Chamber of Commerce on Thursday at the Riverside Country Club. Conducting was Trieste Goodwill. Opening the program was a musical rendition by Millie Cheesman. It was sung to the music of the opera "Carman," concluding with the words, "Keep our dollars here throughout the year." This was the basic theme of the meeting which emphasized the importance of shopppng in Provo. Panel speakers were Leland Gammett, chairman of the neighborhood committee; Troy Mott of Weights and Measures; Deb Warner, president - elect of the Provo Chamber of Commerce; and Bill Shriver, chairman of the Retail Merchant's Council. Leland Gammett related the work and importance of the neighborhood committee which is a link between the citizens and the commission. Residents of Provo can bring their problems or suggestions to the neighborhood committee 'chairman, who will then make recommendations to the city commission. Landscaping Humanizes Mr. Gammett also spoke for John Moss, landscape architect for Provo City. He pointed out that three years ago design studies began for Provo, and it was determined at that time that the finest and most economical organizer and unifier of a city is trees. Landscaping also humanizes the downtown atmosphere and brings a new look to an area. The first block to be revitalized is the City Center block. "There have," he added, "been a few weather problems and engineering details to work out, but ultimately each block should be completed within a six-week period." Mr. Gammett emphasized that when the project is finished, an atmosphere would be provided where business can flourish. Weight Checking TXoy Mott spoke of the importance of his position as Sealer of Weights and Measures. He tests all scales for accuracy that are used in the city, and checks out such diverse items as car wash timers, gas pumps, and even spot checks package commodites in the markets. Deb Warner said there is nothing better than competition to spruce up a merchant's business techniques in the selection of merchandize and in the display and selling of the product. He said, "If Provo is dying it is because of a lack of sales tax." He pointed out that of every $9 a merchant gets in sales tax, $1 comes back to Provo, which is the thrust of the campaign for shopping in Provo. If citizens do not shop in Provo, property taxes will rise. There is no other way. He added that this revenue pays for services, such as police, fire, parks and health, as well as consumer protection agencies. Bill Shriver pointed out that a meeting of the downtown merchants is held the second Tuesday of each month at 8:30 a.m. at the City Center to iron out any business problems. One program the group has developed is a block captain system which can be used to alert merchants on each block of bad check passing or other similar areas of concern. Miss Provo Pageant Mrs. Roy A. Hammond talked briefly about the Miss Provo Pageant which will be held May 24. A workshop on charm, makeup, clothes etc. will be directed by Karen Herd Talbot, former runner-up in the Miss America contest. In the May 3 preliminary pageant, 10 to 12 finalists will be chosen. Any girl age 17 to 28 may enroll in the workshop and become a contestant if she has been a Provo resident for at least six months. "Even- if she doesn't want to be a contestant she may enroll in the workshop," noted Mrs. Hammond. Further information can be obtained, she said, by calling the Provo Chamber of Commerce. Provo's Revenue Mayor Grange concluded the program and emphasized the fact that Provo took in $800,000 last year in sales tax revenue, he stressed and the importance of acquiring the Four Seasons resort. "It will," he said, "bring 7,000 acres of forest land into property taxation, in addition to the sales tax revenue." He urged members to support this and other busines ventures in Provo City. Michele Blake will marry Richard Carlile in a wedding ceremony to be performed at the Provo LDS Temple on Thursday. An open house will be held in their honor from 7 to 9 p.m. on the same evening at the home of the bridegroom's parents, 1807 N. 460 E., Sego Lane, Provo. Friends and relatives are invited.

Tips Given On Safe Use Of Medicines The rapid advances in medical research that have created new drugs which annually save millions of lives have brought new hazards into family medicine cabinets. By following a few common sense rules, families could avoid mishaps and drastically reduce the number of accidental poisonings reported by health officials every year, according to the National Association of Chain Drug Stores. "There have been more than 900 new substances introduced into American medicine in the past 30 years. Many of these are potentially dangerous if taken carelessly, or stored where children can reach them easily," according to Robert J. Bolger, president of the organization that represents 225 chain drug store companies. These together operate more than 10,000 pharmacies in the United States, Puerto Rico and Venezuela. One of the biggest dangers, according to Bolger, is encouraging children to think of medicine as candy in hopes of getting small fry to take it with a minimum of fuss. "Even though it tastes good, children should not be given the idea that they are taking candy. And all medicines should be kept strictly out of reach of children," said Bolger. To help impress on families the importance of proper use of medicines, the association in cooperation with the Drug Enforcement Administration of the U.S. Department of Justice has prepared a series of drug tips which are being distributed to customers by chain pharmacies. They include: Only take prescription medicine for the condition diagnosed by your doctor. Don't use it again unless you check with him. Don't take another person's prescription medicine even if you think your symptoms are the same. Keep all medicine in the original container. Don't mix drugs together or put in other bottles. Never give or take any medicine in the dark. American Study Seeks Definition of Manhood The "ideal of manhood" on the American scene—what is it? Two-fisted and swashbuckling? Square-shouldered, bronzed, black curly-haired? Short, balding, pot-bellied? Is the "ideal of manhood" expected to use four-letter words and collect cheesecake for his locker door or office wall? No one really knows. But a slightly ascerbic professor by the name of Leonard Kriegel is going to spend the next academic year "studying the idea of manhood in American literature and society." The professor of English from The City College, City University of New York, will do so under Monday, April u, iy?5, THE HERALD, Provo, Utah -Page 9 TERRY LYNN HENDERSON Terry Lynn Henderson Will Wed Scott Hyer Terry Lynn Henderson will marry Scott Johns Hyer in a wedding ceremony to be performed Saturday in the Provo LDS Temple.

New Sweefners Receive Tests A dental researcher at the State University of New York in Stony Brook has patented a sugar he says is 75 per cent safer for teeth than common table sugar. And in White Plains, N.Y., a major food company has announced plans for limited marketing of aspartame, a new food ingredient said to be 200 times sweeter than sugar but with none of the bitter aftertaste of some sugar substitutes. Don't look for them soon in markets. A spokesman for Warner Lambert Co. of Morris Plains, N.J., which holds commercial development rights for the dental researcher's invention, said it is only in the testing and evaluation stage, along with several other products. One is an additive that would offset the cavity-causing factor in sugar. terms of an award from the Rockefeller Foundation. It is one of the first humanities' research grants made by the Foundation. When he was 11 and before the polio vaccine, Dr. Kriegel was crippled by the paralytic disease. Since then he has worn leg braces and depended on them and crutches to get from here to there. "The validity of my study for humanistic studies," he said in an interview, "lies in the exploration of certain fundamental concepts of American life—courage, pain, and masculinity—during a time of immense change in American culture." "To prove what strides we've made, Alice was elected the first woman president of Men's liberation League." PARENTS! Worried because your Child is having trouble in school?

MARY BINKS Parenfs Sef He/en He/ P Us Stage for Parasite Problems Their Kids NEW YORK (UPI) - Parents must face the blunt truth. They set the stage for their children to become the drug abuse rs. They condition the child to drugs with their own drinking, pill popping, their failure to listen, to love their children, but also spoiling them, and failure to teach real values in life. As one authority sums it up, "What a peron does about drugs depends on what she or he does about life. Children adopt family patterns, at least during their growing-up years. Parents must begin drug education in the home by providing life education. When it comes to young "Dealing with everyday matters is the training ground for dealing with crises. "A child with a healthy concept who has had experience in decision-making and problem- solving and in accepting responsibility for his or her actions is less likely to turn to drugs to avoid decisions, problems and responsibility. "Parents must examine their attitudes and lifestyle ... their own drug habits. "What we're really talking about...isn't just drugs but the business of living. The goal in rearing children must be to teach them to deal with an imperfect world without using psychological crutches such as drugs." The writer of these words is Margaret Hill, a guidance counselor and authority on education, child development and mental health. Ms. Hill assesses the current drug scene in "Drugs —Use, Misuse, Abuse, Guidance for Families" in a new publication from the Public Affairs Committee, a nonprofit educational organization with headquarters in New York. She defines terms as a starter. First, a drug. It's something other than food that has an effect on the central nervous system or other systems of the body. These can be beneficial or harmful. Drug misuse is "taking a substance for its intended purpose, but not in the appropriate amount, frequency, strength, or manner."

DEAR HELEN: Our 23-year-old attractive, well-educated daughter has been living with a recently divorced man for almost two years. He chooses not to work because he can then avoid child support. (His children and former wife are now on welfare.) Our daughter supports this oarasite, who uses her for a meal ticket. But I recognize she has chosen her path and I try to include him in the family. However, it wears thin! Apparently to justify her life style, she is glamorizing her liberalized attitudes to our 16-year-old son. She has urged him to come and live with them. I've always said I would love my children even though I did not like what they did, but my antagonism is becoming so intense — especially since our daughter demands that her arrogant lover be included in every invitation — that I feel like a hypocrite, trying to be cordial. She glories in embarrassing me; he constantly brags about their non-marriage, and his no-job status. It appears the only solution is to sever ties completely, for though I still care for her, I can't take HIM any longer. She won't even come for lunch without dragging along her moocher. Please,-Helen, what do other parents do in similar situations? -LOSING HER DEARL.H.: What other parents do isn't relevant — for no two situations are exactly alike. If you feel comfortable excluding your daughter and her man from family gatherings, then don't invite them. It appears they attend mainly to flaunt a life style which embarrasses you — and that's not daughterly love! I suspect the rift grows wider each time you play the hypocrite and these two rub it in. Try honesty: at least they'll respect you more, even though they see you less. figure beauty by wire . THE SNO-FLAKE MILK PRICES TOO HIGH ? We have milk available for 25' per Vi gallon.
