"You go in at a m. and by noon the judge has gone through 25 requests. You can't get ir.arriccl that fast." Reform of Canadian divorce laws in July. 1968. allowed Quebec courts to handle divorce cases, cutting out expensive and time-consuming trips fo feceral courts in Ottawa. It also ended the prerequisite of Icpal separa- tion which in itself involves legal action.

A recent colmvm berating the braless female who shamelessly bounced and flopped and wont shopping for dresses without underwear (to the consternation of the salespeople) created a deluge of mail. The braless women demanded that they be heard. So let's listen they can lower their voices to a scream. A reader from Richmond wrote: Since that creep has de- scribed us as creatures, it's only fair that you print the udder side. In your day, Grandmaw, bras were in. Today, they arc out. Thank the Lord we arc no longer ashamed of our bodies. Women have been liberated and we want the wond to know. Free From San Juan: Wake up. The dolls who are wearing bras wear them for only one reason, they are padded with foam rubber. I say, it you've REALLY got it, flaunt it. Who's Got It From Winnipeg: I was one of those idiots who had a beautiful full bosom when 1 was 17. I decided to discard my bra because the braless look was the "in" thing. That was three years ego and now I look like I've nursed six kids. My breast muscles couldn't support the weight. Sign me fc'agpy And Sorry. Burlington, VI.: Did it ever occur io you that not every girl who goes without a bra is trying to look sexy? Some of us don't NEED a bra. Not everyone is built like Raquel Welch and Sophia Loren. From Eau Claire: If a woman is normal she has breasts. If a man is normal he knows it. What's all the static about? Loose in Wisconsin Front Chicago: The question "to bra or not to bra'' can be easily answered if the undecided woman will apply this test to herself. Take an ordinary woodcase pencil. Put it under one breast. If the pencil stays there, you should wear a bra. If it falls, you can go braless. Who Flunked From Denver: My husband does not like me to wear a bra. He says it makes me look too sexy. The natural look- is less provocative, he claims. The bra pushes me up and out. So play that on your violin, Granny. DEAR ONE AND ALL: Thanks for writing. I get the mes- sage. For those of you who want to let it all hang out bo my guest. I still say 85 per cent of the women lock better with a bra than without one. Most of us ought to wear one for two vcrv obvious reasons.

Solec'ting four of the largest department stores, which nat- urally must remain anonymous, a companion and I zeroed in on objociives. Number one on our list w.'is located in a bustling south side shopping mall. Entering the toy department, we nailed a pass- ing assistant and asked for a. toy not on display. An obliging j young man, he headed to the storeroom to get the facts. Re- turning I'.vcnty minutes later, he linppily informed us the item was in stock, but "come back tonight and I'll see if we can sell it to you." Bemused, we headed for the main check out counter with cur other purchases, and join- ed the mighty lineup. The time was p.m. and business people were shopping during their lunch hour. Two lone were on duty. Forty minutes later, as our pur- chases were wrapped, the cash- A good understanding of her j tbe old saying: "He who buys i ier explained everyone else was wardrobe often helps a woman what he doesn't need steals!

The lone assistant, obviously inexperienced, was cover i n g more than one department. Coy- cial it was possible to write one cheque to raver items from two departments, and yes it is pos- sible if you have the time, patience and intestinal forti- tude. Picking up an item from toiletries and one from toys, we were batted between depart- ments like a pingpong ball. One said "yes it's the other hissed "no it's not." Pcrsistance prevailed even- tually. Worn down by our fierce determination, toiletries weak- ly gave in ami we emerged triumphant. Hopping Into the car, we headed for our last port of call, a store in a north side shopping centre. "Do you have we ask- ed breathlessly. "Oh said the assistant. "Loads of Ihem that is, unless we're all sold out." Sure enough they were all sold out, and we whiled away Hie tedium of the next fifteen or twenty minutes awaiting the services of a harrassed and overworked cashier. Lack of staff and inexperi- ence were glaringly obvious in all these stores. In many case novice clerks, frequently with little idea of merchandise or price, straggled manfully to cover more than one depart- ment each. Others simply gave up and pretended the custom- ers did not exist. It appears that Ihe number of existing staff members is not adequate to meet the demands of extended shopping hours.
