the HVHS, rather than the four-day
welcome extended to animals found
with no identification.
"The cruelest thing you can do is
not to put a tag on your animal," says
Flood. She maintains cat-owners are
the worst offenders, pointing out
that because-felines are rarely found
to be wearing collars and tags, only
one in 100 cats is returned to its
owner.
Ensuring that your pet travels by
leash when he or she travels with yoi
is not only a city ordinance, says
Flood, but a safeguard that the
animal you leave the house with
returns with you. %
Flood says the most frequent
donors to the Humane Society cages
are people who are moving and
leaving their pets behind. Second to
them, the director adds, are the
owners who foolishly allow their pets
to give birth to litter after litter just
to show their kids "the miracle of
birth".
Owners tend to rationalize the
pregnancies by assuming "we'll
always find homes for the offspring,"
says Flood. But the way Flood sees it,
for every private pet owner who
gives away an animal to a family,
there is one less family which will
visit the Humane Society for a pet.
Owners are better off neutering
their pets, says Flood. She says
animals cannot be adopted from the
HVHS unless it is neutered.
"If people refuse, we explain we
would rather euthanize one animal
now rather than 40 or 50 later," says
Flood. ". . . and most animals euth-
anized are healthy and adoptable,"
like Jasper.

Between blasts at the oil companies, and the acknowledgement off reporters' questions, President Carter ran the gamut
of gestures in a press conference yesterday.

see, "because it (the energy package)
is a bad proposal."
"I salute him," said Sen. Henry Jack-
son (D-Wash), chairman of the Senate
Energy Committee. "I think the public
doesn't understand the seriousness of
the energy problem."
But Sen. Russell Long, chairman of
the Senate Finance Committee, which
is handling tax aspects of the package,
said, "We'd all be advised to reduce the
level of our rhetoric."
OIL AND GAS companies reacted de-
fensively and with muted anger to Car-
ter's comments.
"The President has made an emo-
tional appeal to defend a tax program
that is not defensible," said John

Swearingen, chairman of the Standard
Oil Co. of Indiana, sixth-largest U.S. oil
company.
"We're under attack," said a spokes-
man for Texaco Inc., the nation's sec-
ond-biggest oil firm.
"I T'S A DAMN severe attack,"
agreed a spokesman for Shell Oil Co.,
the seventh-largest in the United
States.
David Foster, a spokesman for the
Natural Gas Supply Committee, said
his organization was "stunned and dis-
appointed by the tone of the President's
attack on the oil and natural gas indus-
try."
"We are at a loss to understand why
the President leveled his attack on the
petroleum industry and ignored the
countless agricultural, industrial, en-
vironmental and academic support for

the approach to natural gas pricing
adopted by the Senate.
Reaction also came from Dr. Richard
Lesher, president of the U.S. Chamber
of Commerce. "The President's
shocking remarks about 'war prof
iteering' by the oil industry are not sup
ported by the facts," he said.
"In discussing gross revenues, he
masks the fact that return on invest-
ment by oil producers has remained
around the same level or slightly less
than industry as a whole in recent
years."

The majority position, backed by
four of the six GEO executive com-
mittee members, called for the union
to file an unfair labor practice charge
against the University for changing
the wage and tuition rates without
going through the bargaining pro-
cess.
The minority position, which Lem-
mer cited as one reason for the
University's recent offer, said the
union demanded the 5.75 per cent
increase immediately, and in return
the union would waive its right to file
charges or take other legal action on
the issue.
"I can't blame anybody for want-
ing that," Lemmer said of the
minority position.
Bombyk said the union will vote on
the University's offer at its Oct. 19
meeting.
"If the membership votes to take
the raise, we will write to the Univer-
sity, saying we won't file an unfair
labor practice charge against them
because they didn't give us the raise
through collective bargaining," said
Bombyk. ,-
Bombyk added, however, "Author-
izing the 5.75 per cent increase won't
prevent us from bargaining for a
higher increase if we are able to
return to the table."
Conditions for the release of the
funds will be agreed upon by the two
sides collectively if GEO votes to
accept the offer.
"We're waiting to hear from
them," said Lemmer. "The ball's in
their court now."

When you want to limit the size of your family or space the time
between your children, family planning can help you decide the
method of contraception that best fits your health and lifestyle.

But family planning means a lot more. Like-

and after pregnancy

Family planning means more than you may
have thought.
