Here the Glynn children get a helping hand from two neighbour children as they carry a 101-inch, 185-pound sailfish from one place to the other.

Inends and en" on him in regards to any Estate needs. NEW YORK (AP) If at first there is no success, try. try again. That seems to be the motto of the fashion in- dustry for fall. The industry is trying to sell longer skirts for fail without turning away the women who rejected the idea four years ago. The designers are showing and the stores are buying dresses and skirts with hern- lines that range from the knee down. But they're studiously- avoiding the words midi and at ail. Instead, they're emphasizing shape, and here again the industry is taking leal from ihe past. The so-called new look is the Take notice that persons who are Canadian Citizens or British Subjects vvhc are or will oe of the full sge of eighteen years prior to Ocxober 16th 1974 and who have resided in the Province of Alberta during the period commencing six months immediately preceding the 18th day of September 1974 and who are or will be a resident in the City of Lethbridge or in an area annexed to the City on the 18th day of September 1974 may make application at the Assessment Department in the City Hall, Letn- bridae to have their names placed on the list of Electors during the period from the 1st day of January to the 25th day of September, 1974, during normal working hours of each day ex- cept Saturday, Sunday and any Public Holiday. Arthur L. Larson Registrar ixS chemise, the dress that freed women from their girdles back in the 1960s and drew compaints from men who lik- ed their females to show a few curves. When ii was introduced by in tne chemise was a waisiiess. sort of baggy freedom. Yves Saint Laurent pushed the chemise in his fall collec- lion in Paris and ready-to- wear manufacturers latched on to the idea. "For once, we didn't v.-aii until a trend fiKere'j to price ievo'." a spokesman for Victoria Shaw, a now division of Puritan Fashions set up to market four different versions of the ohc-Tiise at "We s a w the S s i r. t Laurent ciiemise ihe discussed il on By had two chemises and a suick wit'; slogans.

From 25 inche-, long !or the conservatives to 27 or IJO inches long i'or the more fashion conscious." You can translate thai into 27 to 39 inches into something that looks an awful like the midi. One bright note in the fashion industry will be the price tag. Manufacturing and other costs have gone up, but businessmen nave recognized that women simply aren't willing to pay much more for clothes. Several 211 k n o w n Attend the f SEPTEMBER 1!

Today's woman wants real value and style for her money.'' said Mildred Sullivan, a spokesman for the Couture Business Council which sponsors a series of spr- ing and fall fashion shows in N'ew York. "With onions at SI.29 a pound and so many other things for women to buy and worry about, the designers have gotten the message." George Halley. a designer who used to sell dresses with a wholesale price tag starting at trimmed down his collection and announced wholesale prices would begin at "Women are not spending that kind of money for clothes no matter how much they said a Halley spokesman, referring to dresses that retail for and up. What else should women look for? Here a few clues: Pants: There will be fewer of them if designers have their way. Both the Paris and New York collections featured more skirts, less slacks. Evening pyjamas have given way to long skirts. The pants that do appear are tailored, have plenty of pockets and cuffs. Suits: The prettiest suits around are the ones with fitted, vest-like jackets, topp- ing softly gathered skirts. Be careful though. The suits are often done in bulky fabrics that can turn anyone who isn't tall and skinny into a sort of teddy bear. Coats: Big. bulky and free swinging, easy to wear over heavy cardigans. Capes are popping up al! over, once again, both street length and to the ground for evening. Blouses: More feminine, with a peasant look. Lots of puffy sleeves and pleats; some embroidery. Dresses: Soft and wearable, with a few cling-to-the-body styles to balance the chemise. The ever-popular jerseys will remain firmly entrenched and the shape will come from the wearer's body, not the designer's drawing board. Sunglasses not all good CALGARY (CP) Many- persons are "asking for sore eyes" because they select the wrong kind of sunglasses, says Dr. Eric Ratledge of Calgary, past president of the Alberta Optometric Association. He said fashion-tinted glasses sold in drug stores ab- sorb only 40 per cent or less of the sun's rays. Often it was more difficult to seo with glasses than without them, because they were made of ordinary pressec. glass instead of ocular grour.d glass. Optometrists say even peo- ple with 20-20 vision shn-i 1 wear sunglasses niado of scription-quality grour.d .nd polished lenses.

But in some texts they still are relegated to the back of the chapter. Much has been accomplish- ed in the last 10 years in getting black representation into what used to be virtually "all-white" textbooks; but much more has yet to be done, say many educators. Many educators declare that in general these are the problems they face in getting textbooks that put blacks in perspective in American history: Publishers exert little leadership in producing books that include blacks and other racial and ethnic groups. Educators themselves do not demand more black- representative books until they are pressured by the black community. Many publishers produce textbooks that will sell to the broadest possible market. Often suburban and rural school districts do not have the same priority for including black history as do urban districts like Detroit which has a 70 per cent black school population. Publishers do not employ enough black writers or historians so that the black point of view can be presented. There still is great dependency upon basic text- books, and. in most cases, schools must use what publishers produce even if the materials do not come up to school standards. Schools and the publishing industry are run primarily by white, middle- class people, and it is difficult for them to empathize with blacks. On their side, publishers say these are the problems they face: It takes two to five years to produce a textbook. Longer if it is part of a series Social change in America has so accelerated over the past several years that publishers can hardly keep up with the demands that these changes be reflected in text- books. Even though many school districts demand Updated tex- tbooks, some of them do not have the money to purchase them even when they are available. Some schools must use books for two years, others five years, before they can purchase new ones. Publishers must make a profit to survive and therefore must produce books accep- WeeWhimsy table to a large number of school districts across the country. It is difficult to find enough black consultants to work on textbooks. Education experts say some publishers are producing ex- cellent textbooks but in general this is what they find: Some textbooks will tell the story of the Civil War. Lee will surrender at Appomattox. Then there will be three pages about the black soldier, after the fact and at the end of the bus." Dr. Freeman Flynn. director, school community relations. Detroit Public- Schools. "It has only been recently that we've had textbooks which had text and pictures to which minority children relate. But there is still a of realness in the books though this is to be expected because the persons writing these materials have a dif- ficult time writing about something they haven't ex- perienced. It's hard to walk in another man's shoes when you haven't put them on." J Y. Moreland. Atlanta sup- erintendent. "There has been a good deal of improvement, but there is still a long way logo." Ur.
