Nudism: It's Really No Giggle WASHINGTON (AP) At first blush it seemed like a good giggle: the American Sunbathing Association d e- U.S. Government Subsidy For Ocean Liners Costly U.S. government is paying as much as a passenger in federal aid to finance luxury cruises aboard ocean liners to such exotic ports as Hong Kong, Tahiti, Jamaica and Bora Bora. Even a bubbly New Year's Eve parly aboard a ship cruis- ing off the California coast is covered by the rich flow of fed- eral aid. The payments are part of a special subsidy to American passenger ships that cost tax- payers an estimated mil- Bon during the last five years. The aid was begun for na- tional defence reasons before the Second World War. But now, government records show the only passenger liners benefit- ting from the payments are 10 cruise ships sailing the South Pacific and the Caribbean. The subsidies go mainly to pay the difference in the higher wages for American seamen compared with the lower-paid crews on foreign ships. When the Santa Paula sailed this spring from New York to Curacao, Haiti, Jamaica and St. Thomas in the Caribbean, mari- time administration records show that in federal aid was paid for the two-week cruise. This subsidy amounted to a passenger. Shipping officials say that without this federal aid to pay their higher wage costs, they would be priced out of business and the privately ow_ncd Ameri- can fleet would be" certain to vanish from the seas.

It was, alas, quite proper. Even prim. There they sat, three card- carrying nudists, fully clothed and conducting a news confer- ence. "Nudie com- plained association president Thomas H. Coin, "are so far from portraying the philoso- phy of the association that ye can no longer point with pride and say: 'This is nudism'." Coin said 800 association members met in convention near here last weekend and voted to direct their national headquarters to stop sales of all questionable publications. He said this would mean a yearly loss in revenue for the association, which dis- tributed the magazines to members. On the table before Goin lay a stack of the offending maga- zines, marked "Adults only" and showing naked people ca- ressing and simulating sexual acts in groups of threes, fours and fives. Goin said the decision to de- nounce such magazines caused controversy within the association, which for years fought legal battles for the right to publish nude pictures. "We are not he said. "We are overwhelmingly against censorship. "The association is not against sex.

Brownridge has devoted the last 10 years to two of North America's most popular insti- tutions beer and cars. Mr. Brownridge, 54, gave up cars in 1968 when he resigned as president of American Mq- tors (Canada) Ltd. Now, as president of Brewers' Warehousing Co. Ltd., he over- sees the distribution of about 130 million gallons of malt bev- erages in Ontario each year. The white-haired executive left the auto industry to run un- successfully as a Progressive Conservative candidate' in the 1968 federal election. He remains vocal about cer- tain aspects of automobile man- ufacturing. In an interview, he attacked United States politicians who want the 1965 Canada-U.S. auto trade agreement abolished. "They don't know what tire hell they're talking he said. The agreement provides a modified type of free trade in new vehicles and parts between Canada and the U.S. "There was an alternative to the free-trade agreement in says Mr. Brownridge, "and there's an alternative to these politicians' demands now." It is, he suggests, higher Ca- nadian-content regulations. Since 1936 cars have been as- sembled in Canada 'from duty- free U.S. parts, with a proviso that 60 per cent of the value of each car be produced in Can- ada. Without the agreement, Mr. Brownridge suggests, the con- tent requirement would have been raised to 80 per cent, boosting prices for American- style cars by about to in Canada. If the auto pact were scrapped, lie says, the U.S. would not benefit by Canada's loss. against, portrayal of sex in magazines as part of the nud- ist philosophy." Goin said nudism is misun- derstood by most Americans and nudie magazines have in- creased the confusion.

Earnings for the six manths were or 31 cents a share compared with or 19 cents a share in the same period of 1969. Gross revenues were up from R. L. Borden, company presi- dent, said the increase was aid- ed by higher express revenues which came partially as a re- sult of unsettled postal condi- tions. Education Program Set For Natives In Sask. REGINA (CP) first stage of a program for improving educational stan- dards of Saskatchewan's native people is to be launched within three weeks, Education Minis- ter J. C. Mclsaac said today.

Dr. Mclsaac said Indians and of mixed Indian- wliitc ancestry would take Severed Arm Is Rejoined In Winnipeg Operation Ogopogo Sighted KELOWNA, B.C. Heinz Schmidt said she was among 15 to 20 people who re- cently sighted what appeared to be Okanagan Lake's Ogopogo, an underwater creature similar to the Loch Ness monster. The group watched for 10 minutes while it made its way from the shore. She said it was humped and about 30 to 40 feet long. TWO-TOED An ostrich has two toes on each foot. WINNIPEG right arm of a 13-year-old east Kil- donan boy, severed four inches from the shoulder when it be- came caught in an extractor spin dry machine at a coin laundry, has been rejoined by a team of Winnipeg surgeons. Winnipeg General Hospital said today that the condition of Theodore Eouteiller "is im- proving all the time it is quite encouraging." Police chief Chris Einfeld of East Kildonan said the boy lost the arm at 1.43 p.m. Saturday when, alone in the laundry, he caught it while trying to re- move his clothing from the ex- tractor.

NO STORE SALES He is critical when anyone mentions selling beer in super- markets and grocery stores. He says such a move would likely increase prices.

And we know it costs 21 per cent more to put out a half- dozen package as opposed ot a case of 24."
