   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - October 4, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                Hie Cedar Kaulds Kri., Ucl. I. 1971 'car By Abigail Van Hurra WMl AHI1Y: I am a high school senior. I attend church regularly and am active in our church youth group. My problem is a friend of mine. He's a nice guy and we study together, but he belongs to another church, and keeps hassling me about my reli- gion. He thinks it's his mis- sion to go around converting people to his religion. We've had some pretty hot argu- ments about this, and I've told him he is wasting bis lime if he thinks he's going to turn me off my religion and on to something else. I don't want to end our friendship because he's the most intelligent friend I have, but how can 1 convince him that I am happy with my own religion and don't want to change? .I.S. DEAR J.S.: Send him this quote from a teller that Thom- as Jefferson wrote to Mrs. II. Harrison Smith in 1816: "I never told my own religion nor scrutinized that of anoth- er. I never attempted to make a convert, nor wished to change another's creed. I am satisfied that yours must be an excellent religion to have produced a life of such ex cmplary virtues and correct- ness. For it is in our lives, and not from our words that our religion must be judged." And J., if )uur friend is as intelligent as you say he is, he will get your message and act accordingly. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I work together delivering morning newspapers. We start out at 1 a.m. and finish up about 5 a.m. It's dark out at thai time and many of the house num- bers are hidden by big bushes, or have been painted over and are impossible to read from the street, so my husband has to get out of the truck and look around for the house numbers with a flashlight. With so much meanness in the world today, he could be mistaken for a prowler. Not only that, but it's time-con- suming to get out of the truck, set the brakes, and go looking around for house numbers. I hope you use this in your col- umn to let folks know how they can solve our problem. PAPER PEOPLE OKAK PEOPLE: Your letter could solve that problem for others who must make deliveries at night. CONFIDENTIAL TO CONNIE: Being "Number 2" is no better than being "Number 99" as long as "Number One" is still in the picture. Everyone has a problem. What's yours?

Women's Roles Fashions Reflect Society By Gay I'auley NEW YORK (DPI) The arbiters of style decree that this is the year women get out of pants and into skirts. Whether they succeed in the switch de- pends not so much on their dictates as on the changes in society involving both sexes. Matter of fact, men might end up in skirts. This is the viewpoint put forth by fashion historian, Moira .Johnston. "It is not just women's limited role that is being challenged but the values and priori- lies of an entire says Johnston. "The barricades phase of this revolution (liberation) began for women when they put on jeans, hoping by a symbolic 'laking-on-of- pants' to absorb male [lower and privilege by osmosis. Men In Skirts Laugh At Imaae "Armed with the pill, these women in pants are the first in history who can laugh at the old fertility image. "Pants are still battle dress for women fighting a large bank for the right not to wear 'cute' uniforms or take the bank's charm course "There are some signs though that as soon as basic goals have been achieved, wom- en might not want pants; men might end up in some form of skirt "Some women are convinced that long skirts can he freer than pants as long as they're not stretched over hoops or dragging coronation trains." Johnston's review of style changes through the centuries and the forces that cre- ated them is featured in the current issue of the "Journal of Home official publication of the American Home Econom- ics Assn. She is based in San Francisco. She reviews the way women got where Men have not always worn pants in the rest of the world "for thousands of years the wrapped skirt has draped the hips of men in Egypt, the Middle East, Africa. Southeast Asia and many other regions." she says. And (hen (here are the kilts sliil alive in (he Scottish highlands.

"The long seductive gowns of the IHIHIs and the post-war 'new look' revived the an- cient images, however, as home and babies again look priority." As for today, she continues. "Men are coming to meet women more than halfway as the business suit comes to seem a hollow shell. "It is the aggressive, trousers-wearing men of science and reason who have brought the world to the brink of environmental and spiritual crisis.
