Crack Down on Vietnamese Critic By Tad Bartimis SAIGON (AP) Police barred Ngo Ba Thanh, a critic of the South Vietnamese re- gime, from leaving her home Saturday as she attempted to distribute a manifesto on "third force" politics. Scores of plainclothes and uniformed policemen with walkie-talkies surrounded a four-block area around lier high-walled villa in the heart of Saigon. No one was permit- ted to enter. Her son, Ngo Pham Thang, 25, a South Vietnamese navy electronics technician, was al- lowed to enter his home after showing his identification card to police. But when he re- turned outside to talk with journalists and then attempt- ed to re-enter, he was ques- New Continental 'Tails' Slogan Invokes Stewardess Complaints love is... his first smile in the morning. LOS ANGELES Some Continental airlines stewardesses say the firm's _new advertising slogan, "We really move our tails for is degrading to them. "When I first heard the slo- gan, I was just Claudia Lampe, stewardess representative for the member Air Line Pilots Assn., said Friday. "It's degrading to us." She said married stewar- desses have gotten complaints from their husbands and "we even have a few fathers who are unhappy about this." "Barroom Talk" Polly Musch, a married 10- year veteran of Continental, said: "I think it represents a lack of respect for hostesses. We have always projected pride, a class kind of image, and this slogan is barroom talk." But Continental executives insist the slogan refers only to the tail of the plane, an exten- sion of the firm's "proud bird with the golden tail" theme, not to part of a stewardess' anatomy. Charles Bucks, senior vice- president of marketing for Continental, admitted the ins- piration for the ad came from the huge -success of National airlines' "Fly me" campaign, also opposed by some femin- ists and stewardesses. He said National had a 19 percent passenger increase in fiscal year 1972 while the in- dustry average was 10 per- cent. The Continental campaign has begun in Miami and Hous- ton. The protests were stirred by the scheduled start of ads in the Los Angeles area Mon- day. B u t some stewardess.es don't object. "Most of the girls I'm flying with like the said Joanne Pond, 26, of Oklahoma City, who claimed she represents the silent majority. "If the others can't handle the re- marks they should -get out and let the rest of us do the job." A Continental spokesman stressed Friday that the print and television ads show "pic- tures of pilots, mechanics, cooks and baggage men say- ing, 'We really move our tails for you.' The ad has been defended as "not a putdown" by actress Audrey Meadows, who is mar- ried to Continental's pres- ident, Robert Six. tioned briefly, surrounded and taken away in a police jeep. Mrs. Thanh had called a news conference at her home to distribute the 500-page manifesto she authored during the last two years she spent in prison. She had been held without trial since Sept. 18, 1971, fol- lowing her arrest during a demonstration outside the na- tional assembly, where she had been protesting President Nguyen Van Thieu's one-man presidential election. Her release on bail 'Sept. 22 ended a hunger strike during which she said she lost 48 pounds. At that time friends reported she was free, following pressure on Thieu's regime by United States congressmen, including Rep. Bella Abzug (D-N. Testimonial Her son said she had spent six weeks of continuous work writing a "documentary testi- monial" on the neutralist third force in South Vietnam. The group is trying to find a middle way between the Com- munist-led Viet Cong and the American-backed Thieu re- gime. Under the Paris peace agreement, the Thieu govern- ment and the Viet Cong were to set up a National Council of National Reconciliation and Concord of three equal seg- ments, with the neutralist third force included. The agreement assigned the council the task of organizing free and democratic general elections. But the council has never been formed as re- quired. Political talks in Paris between Saigon and the Viet Cong are stalemated. ear By Abigail Vuii iiuren DEAR ABBY: The other night, after a fairly calm eve- ning with friends, my husband offered me lo one of his friends. You can't imagine how much this hurt me. 1 did the only thing I could think of doing. I refused in no uncertain terms, even though h tried his best to talk me into it I love my husband, but I doub that he really loves me. He has tried to get me to do this befbn and every time I've told him m and not to ask me again, but hi keeps on trying. f have told my husband that if 1 want sex outside of marriage I will do the choosing, but so far I am satisfied with him alone. I get depressed every time I think about my husband's wani- ng to pass me around to his 'riends and lately I've been tat. ng it out on our 2-year-old son I am open for suggestions. NOT FOR LENDING DEAR NOT: My suggestion would be leave him and look for man who would respect hi marriage vows as you respccl yours. But first I would give lim an opportunity to get his head together. If he refuses counseling, then leave ess you want to continue to live with a man who regards hi: wife as his personal property- and a sex object to pass aroum to his friends. DEAR ABBY: I am one woman who is against women's lib because it advocates free love for women as well as for men. Maybe I'm peculiar, but I don't want any free love before marriage. What I do want is a man whose moral standards are iust as high as mine. Why should a girl remain jure for a husband who has slept with so many girls he has ost count? "20 AND STILL PURE" DEAR If you've reached 20 and are still holding, hooray or you! Women's libbers are pushing for the same privileges or women as men. That doesn't necessarily mean they advocate promiscuity for everybody, they .imply want one standard for joth sexes which is what you vant, no? Problems? You'll feel better if rou get it off your chest. For a lersonal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, elf-addressed envelope, please.

(UPI) A 16-year-old girl with strong feelings about women's libera- tion took on the mayor of this suburban community before her fellow high school stu- dents. She was suspended for five days, but she made her point. Zoe Joyner became indig- nant when Mayor Aubrey M. Lumley addressed students in the Terra Nova high school auditorium about recruiting girls for the 1974 Miss Califor-' nia beauty contest. Taking out a tape measure, she chal- lenged the mayor to reveal his vital statistics. Then she lay down on the floor in front of the podium, breaking up the meeting. Her remarks, which includ- ed additional statements about the "base demean- ing" aspects of beauty con- tests, got her a five-day sus- pension from classes by the school's principal, Thanos Pangoulias. After her first day back at Joyner said in an interview that things had quieted down during her five days' absence and that she received "only words of sup- port" from her classmates male and female. "I did what I considered the best thing to dramatize my the brown-haired teenager said. "I wanted to show people how I felt, and I didn't want to write my sena- tor or do something like that." She said that for some time she has been mulling over the negative aspects of society's concepts of beauty and she didn't like what she saw hap- pening. "Women undergo all types of surgery because they aren't considered beautiful by soci- ety's she said. It's her belief that a persons' beauty should not be deter- mined by a tape measure.
