February THf IfTHBHIDGf HStMD 13 British, officials Renowned stylist visits Lethbridge of local levy sentences LONDON (CP) A growing circle of women are imitating a 17th-century character in nuking Kfe embarrassing for UM overlords of law and trans- portation in Britain. They are copying to a degree the ways of John Hampden, a testy character who refused to pay one of the large levies im- posed by King Charles I and thus helped pave the way for that monarch's downfall. Hie latter day sticklers for personal rights are by no means so ambitious. But the cases have caused a stir throughout the country since Elsie Rauro, a 64 year old widow started the protest with an eight-day spell in prison last summer over the issue of free- dom of action for landladies. Her protest involved the right she claimed to evict tenant "whom I can no longer subsidize." The next major event will be the hearing of an appeal by York schoolteacher Lidsay Waller, 25, -against a f i n e for riding a bicycle with- out lights nine minutes after the time established for "light- ing up" on public thorough- fares. Miss Waller is prepared to go to jail rather than pay the fine, termed by her lawyer "the severest fine I have known for this offence." A magistrate said the fine's size reflects the teacher's re- fusal to stop when asked to do so and to give her name. The Waller case coincides with the mysterious release from a London prison of woman who stood firm on a matter of principle concerning rain fares. Anne Melville, a 23-year- old typist from the South Coast city of Brighton, had been sen- tenced to one week in prison after refusing to pay the state- owned British Railways the full fare for a first-class seat she had occupied on a crowded rain. Mrs. Melville had a second- class season ticket and offer- ed to pay the difference be- tween the cost of one trip on the ticket and the price of the first-class seat. MUST PAY 13 But British Rail's rule is that holders of season tickets must pay the full first-class this case 24 shillings wliile other travellers need only pay the difference be- tween first- and second-class class accommodation. Mrs. Melville was sent to jail because she refused a court's order to pay the full fare. She was released after eight hours in jail Tuesday when an unidentified person paid the debt plus court costs, about Jean Rook, a Daily Sketch columnist, took the opportunity to denounce British Rail as "one of Britain's worst-organ- ized disorganizations." "The next time a Mrs. Mel- ville offers a British RaU inspector the difference be- tween no second-class seat, a reference to standing-r o o m only conditions on some trains and a moth-eaten first, he should take what he can Miss Rook declared.

NO CHILDREN UNDER 16 DEAR MISS BROOKFIELp I am a 58-year-old widow with a nice figure, Forking to support myself. I have been go- ing out with a 38-year-old man who is very kind to me in dif- ferent ways and who tells me he loves me very much. He says he'd like to marry me and take care of me as I get older He can't be after my money because I haven't any. Because of the difference in our ages though, I hesitate about mar- riage. I would like your advicf about this. P.S. He has a temper. M. B., Prospect Park, NJ DEAR M. B.: Although we readily accep' marriages between older men and younger women, we tend ti be skittish about those situa tions where the wife is the old er of the two. Fortunately, all this is changing. Psychiatrists say that age difference needn' be a problem, unless the cou pie make it one. They consider age an artificial way to categorize people and are op timistic about the chances for happiness in a marriage be- tween an older woman and a younger man. In your own case perhaps you'd better decide i his temper might be more of a problem than his age.
