(AP) Men whose hair, beards or side- burns are Jong and scraggly cannot collect unemployment in- surance in Monterey. So says James E.' Hammond, manager of the state unemploy- ment office for the scenic Mon- terey Peninsula area. _llammond% said he made-his. decision' Monday after a survey employers, Tues- day aflernp'on had denied pay- ments lo five long-haired appli- canls. The same ruling could affect women who wear mother hub- bards or mlcrominl skirts, he said, but no clear case has yet arisen. "Because the overwhelmisg majority of employers will not accept long hair on male em- ployes, we feel that those who persist in wearing it are volun- tarily restricting their availabil- Hammond said. "They have only lo shave or trim their hair and they will re- ceive insurance payments." Some applicants muttered about'individual rights, but one said: VMaybc you're right. I've gone long enough." Hammond said his survey showed that more than 50 per cent of employers dsmanded clean-shaven employes and only 19 per cent would receive appli- cants whose hair Is "longer lhan that trimmed to the neck." Only one per cent approved hippie dress, male or female, while only three per cent toler- ated women in extreme mini- skirts or maxicoats, Hammond said. A woman can dress as casiial- ly as she likes when seeking benefits, Hammond explained, "but if we find she ncrsisls in dressing.like that for job inter- views, in a field where extremes are not acceptable, she too will be tlisqualilied." Hammond said the ruling was his own idea and he anticipated challenges, but several other district unemployment officers already have made Inquiries. Among the early challengers were two lawyers, allhough Ihcir actions so far have been limited to unfavorable com- ment. Maurice Jourdane, 27, an at- torney for the California Legal Assistance in Salinas who culled himself the longest-haired attor- ney; in Monterey County, said the ruling violates the First Amendment (o the U.S. Consti- tution. Francis Hcislcr, a veteran Carmel attorney who has taken numerous civil rights cases to Ihe high courts, said: "You can- not exclude people from market who art following Ihe present-day trend."

Q. Is there a state law In Texas requiring Texas teachers (b retire at age fi57 If there Is such a law, does It also apply lo principals and suucrlntcnilanls? Also, If there Is such a law, ts It A. Yes to all three questions. By stale law all certified personnel (teachers and administrators) will be automatically relired after finishing the school term during which they become 65. But it's left up to each district to enforce this law and they may make an exception to this policy. In this dislricl, the Abilene School Board policy coincides with the state law, and requires retirement at 65. School Supt. A. E, Wells says it is enforced.

A, It's possible for you to have healthy children, but this combination can produce a so-called RFI not your first child unless your wife's blood was sensitized by a blood transfusion in the past.- The greatest danger is wilh your second or third child, but there's now a substance called Fho Gam that blocks Ihe building of anti-bodies in the mother's blood, Ihus preventing trouble even wilh the second or third child, a local pathologist tells us. Your wife's blood should be checked often during pregnancy so her doctor can be pre- pared for delivery of an "RH child" and attempt a blood exchange at birth. .Afi negative is the rarest blood type.
