No. I am not his lover “No, no. we love each other but not like that,” she protested to another series of questions.

She desenbS her friendship with the powerful congressman as a father-daughter relationship “Its sort of like, what do you call it. a father fixation.” she said “My father was always the only one who could tell me what to do." she adds Truth Time Of Mills’ public affection for her, Miss Foxe said. “It s time for a person in his position to be truthful. A lot of people do these things you know but don’t have the nerve to say it." She didn t elaborate.

But moving into a managerial slot can Im' a dead end for women who expert to advance on merit alone “Women executives often lack the aggressiveness to make career plans clear to their employers," says James Hayes, president of the American Management Assns. (AMA), a nonprofit organization that holds worldwide management training programs for more than HK).(MHI executives annually. “There s been a big push for jobs for women, but now it s time* to start talking careers,” he told UPI. Men historically have had to be aggressive to succeed in the corporate world, but new first-line women supervisors and administrative assistants must tx' taught to compete effectively rather than just cooperate, Hayes said Escape Route The escape route for women locked into a token promotion lies in training. Hayes said. but these newcomers to management are reluctant to develop their resources. Even in today’s brave new world of women, he said. the AMA draws an average of only four women out of every SO manag ers attending its training programs Training also can help avert what Hayes terms the “little disaster," or the rush to promote women to meet legal requirements without preparing them for management responsibilities “Other people’s lives and dreams are suddenly in the hands of rank amateurs.” he said. But even the established businesswoman is unwilling to push as hard as men “Men will aggressively volunteer to lecture at the AMA programs," Hayes observed, “while women invariably ask permission to talk it over with their bosses." Although today’s women executives are younger and better educated than    their counterparts ll) years    ago. sexual prejudice still    runs rampant. At least 90 percent of thc> managers in the United States, according to Hayes, have some resentment toward the newly-appointed woman executive Women managers also face resistance from their own sex who often dislike working for other women. Instinct “Women by instinct    have very good managerial talents ’’ Hayes said Women are better long-term thinkers than men who act first and think later, he noted “The maternalism image makes women tremendous supervisors at the personal level, while men are paternalistic in an institutional w ay ” Male executives still approach women peers “with a certain kind of delicacy and refuse to lay their cards on the table." Hayes said “But the relationship will become tougher as more women move into power posts." The AMA president believes women executives are feeling the backlash created by federal pressure on corporations to promote women into management slots. “The net effect is progress,” he said But if women managers are kept in token positions and not moved up the corporate ranks, “there will Im* a whole new generation of frustration only five years awav."

TON, Sci (UPI) — Beverly Harrell, the madam of a legal bordello who came within 120 votes of winning a Nevada assembly seat, withdrew her request for a recount Monday because county clerks refused to allow ballots to bt* challenged “Without the right to challenge irregularities and ballots it is no recount at all.” said Harrell. The petite redheaded brothel owner lost the race to Don MimkIv of Hawthorne, Nev., a service station owner who is relate to Gov Mike OTallaghan. The vote was 2,-533 to 2.873 "I ve learned two things in this election First, if the establishment is out to beat you they will find a way. And also it is clear that our state elect on laws are sorely in need of reform," she said “The recount procedure adopted by the county clerks in my district at the urging of Attorney General Robert List would make it impossible for me to receive a fair count.” she said List handed down an opinion recently which said the county procedure should be the same as on election night and that challenges should not be allowed Weepers, Mourners Margaret M.

In this land of the work brigade and communal confession. the girls seemed to express a universal mnwence and humanity But the expression suffered in translation Party Line The girls, whirling with joint'd hands, sang undeviating party line songs about hating and fighting revisionists, religion and other enemies of the people. But, still, three old men and a woman muster on Sundays in Peking. One man was a Presbyterian minister before the Communist takeover in 1949 Another was an Episcopal pastor ‘‘I don’t know what the other man was," Mrs. Bush said. “But I do know he is a Protestant, a Christian."
