She walk- ed up on a small rocky point as her boy friend prepared to take her photograph. From under her arm she took a bundle of black cotton skirt. She stepped into it, zipped it up, then began rolling her trouser legs above the hem- line. Sad to say, she didn't have to roll very far. In China, the midiskirt reigns. (Are you lis- tening, Miniskirts, there are none. I have personally checked out Peking. It is a poor town for leg men. Skirts appear here only in summer. During the rest of the year the capital's women wear trousers, generally in dark blue cotton which gets progressively lighter with wash- ing. These are cut the same way as men's Tight pants are not only suspect politically, but also quite im- practical in wintertime, when several layers of woolies and other undergarments reinforce resistance to the bitter wind from Mongolia. Even in summer, skirts are worn by but a minority of women, although most below- teen girls put them on. The little girls may occasionally have hems above the knee and some of the early teen-agers may exhibit models hovering around the kneecap, but more mature females firmly cover patella.

One foreigner who received more attention than desired was the member of the British mission who wore his kilt on a trip to the railway station and was grabbed by policemen who felt this really was going a bit far. They were mollified when it was explained this was Uie native male habit of a British minority group. Chinese skirts come in var- ious colors and patterns black, blue, flower prints, polka dots, checks. There are both straight and pleated versions and, like the trousers, they always hang loose. This not only forestalls de- cadence but also makes it pos- sible to hunker down in the comfortabie, balanced squat with knees wide apart that Chinese of all ages use when chatting, playing with children. waiting for a bus and so on You can't do it and still be ladylike in a tight or short skirt.

Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: couldn't believe my eyes when I rend your answer to the father who signed himself "Second Class Citizen" It seems by the time he sat down to read the- newspaper it was ripped apart. His wife had torn out a recipe his daughter clipped your column, his mother-in-law went for the horoscope, etc. You told him t solve the prob- lem by picking up a paper on the way home just for himself. You call tlu's advice? In our family if you are old enough to read a newspaper you are old enough to leave it in good condition for the next person. Common courtesy and respect for others should be learned early. A red ink underlining pen for marking ar- ticles to be torn out later is cheaper than a second news-- paper and less trouble, too. Anyone in our family who wants to tear out an item can wait till the next day. Where were YOU, Ann Landers, when that column ap- peared? DEAR DISAPPOINTED: I was in Athens but I wrote the advice before I left. Fifty million readers can't be wrong and that's roughly the number that complained about my an- swer. I plead temporary insanity. DEAR ANN LANDERS: We are two teen-agers who need you to speak up for us. Grandpa is 88 years old. We love him very much but his mind wanders and he's like not all there. The doctor said Grandpa would be better off in the old folks home than at our house because Mom can't give him the kind of care he needs. So three weeks ago Mom and Dad took hint to a nice place where the people are very friendly. Mom makes my brother and me (we are 15 and 16) go with her to visit Grandpa every evening after supper. We wouldn't mind a couple nights a week, Ann, but night routine 'is like spacing us out. It's boring to sit in a room and not be able to carry on a conversation. Grandpa doesn't even know who we are. Mom says it is being re- spectful and after Grandpa is gone we will be glad we were so good to him. Will you speak up for us? Mom; is all the time banding us your column when you agree .with her. W. Va. DEAR WHEELS: I can't see that it makes much sense for a couple of teen-agers to go visit with a non-compos grandpa every night of the week. Twice a week is plenty. I hope your Mom will reconsider and stop dragging you kids along on what she considers her duty visits. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You printed a letter a while back from a reader who was driven out of her mind by computer billing. After countless phone calls and letters, she received a telegram saying that if she didn't pay her bill at. once her credit rating would be permanently jeopardized. I sympathized with the woman because I had a similar experience when I tried to cancel a credit card. It had such a devastating effect on me that my ulcers came back. Please inform the public as to the best course of action should they become caught in the wheels of "progress" and driven nuts as I was. (P.S. Finally my husband hired a law- yer.) Scream Heard Round The World DEAR SCREAM: One who finds himself involved in battle with a computer should do the following: If, after a phone call and a letter to the company, you get no satisfaction, accept the fact that the electronic monster has no eyes or ears and you might as well talk to Mount _Rushmore. Write to your senators and to your congressman. Send copies of. your correspondence to the computer. Write also to President Nbt- on's Committee On Consumer Interest, Washington, D.C. And keep your cool your cool your cool your cool your cool. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "If any of the girls ask me today, I'm 38...I'll get more sleep tonight so I can be 34 again tomorrow."
