Vienna's tailors vanishing breed By WERNER VOLLMAN VIENNA (AP) Tailors are a vanishing breed in Vien- na, where archdukes and other nobility were once counted among the best- dressed of the world. Only a generation ago suits and dresses were worn for years and in many cases were handed down to sons and daughters. Aduard Kastner, chairman of Vienna's dwindling tailors' guild, said that in today's throw-it-away society suits and dresses are worn for a fairly short time, partly for reasons of fashion. Ready-made clothes are the Why not? Four-year-old Joshua Donham of Sydney, N.S., will never be a member of the women's liberation movement but he doesn't mind giving a boost to International Women's Year.

(AP) A judge has set aside a lion award to a housewife who says she went blind after tak- ing birth-control pills. Superior Court Judge Bruce Alien ordered Feb. 10 that a new trial be held, but did not set a date.

Specifically, Allen referred to sworn affadavits provided by defence lawyers and con- taining interviews with jurors who claimed' other jurors swayed them with arguments outside the limits of the judge's instruction. The decision quoted an af- fidavit by juror Vernon Van Leuven as saying fellow juror Marilyn Swanson told other jurors "she had strong feelings about corporations and drug companies bleeding the public." The award went against three defendants: The Orthro Pharmaceutical Co., which manufactured the pill; its parent company, Johnson and Johnson, and Lucky Stores, owner of the Gemco Phar- macy where Mrs. Ahearn bought the pills. Defence witnesses main- tained the woman went blind because of a streptococcus infection and not because of the pills. Her lawyers said it was a combination of both.
