Another survey found that half the population never brushed their teeth and four in every 100 had never been in a bathtub. Nevertheless, 43 per cent of Germans themselves believe they are the cleanest people in the world. West German expenditure on soap alone amounts to 235 million marks (about million) annually. Every year, the country's 60 million citizens use 161 million tubes .of toothpaste, tons of washing detergent and 1.2 billion rolls of toilet paper. Add to this the well-known Saturday picture of the German family man lovingly washing his car while his wife vigorously polishes the windows of their house, and you may understand a little better how the myth of the clean German was born. Researchers attribute this zest for cleanliness to a number of reasons particularly to a feeling that social prestige depends on a clean appearance. Seventy per cent of the population think that, a person who is clean enjoys a better reputation. Sixty-nine per cent believe that cleanliness provides better chances with the opposite sex and 60 per cent expect to gain more friends by keeping their finger nails and ears clean. Why then are Germans not as clean as they should be? Scientists believe that people associate cleanliness only with outward appearance, an attitude which supposedly starts with the education of children. For how do you explain to a child the potential danger of in- fectious, but invisible bacilli? Of over school children asked by a federal Centre for Health Education survey why they should wash themselves in the morning, 70 per cent correctly ticked off the answer "so that no infectious bacilli can grow on the skin from the dirt." But 60 per cent also thought they should wash "so they don't smell." Forty per cent thought personal hygiene was necessary "so that one looks clean" and 28 per cent said "because parents want it that way." One survey found that condi- tions in West German hospitals are far from ideal.

TeJeohone 32S-9231 Computers may save cashiers PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP) Someday soon your house door may unlock to the sound of your voice, says a scientist. Or your grocery bill may be totalled when the checkout clerk tells the cash register, "Dozen oranges, quart of milk, two dozen eggs, three jars of strained bananas." A mini-computer inside the cash register will compute the bill based on the voice print of the checkout clerk and the price list programmed into it, open the money drawer and also deduct the purchases from current inventory. In the case of the lock com- puter, it could hold several recordings, carrying voice prints of persons permitted to open the door. Dear Ana Landers: I am a 74-year-old reader, male, and have been wanting to write to you for about a year. I asked my neighbor if she thought I should and she said, "Wait a few months and some other nut will write in with the same problem." Well, I've been waiting and nobody has so here it is: I have 12 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, God bless them. They like to come to Grandpa's house and I enjoy having them. But my dear wife passed on in 1971 and the housekeeper can't see very well, or she doesn't want to. Anyway, Ann, I have a secret complaint against these kids and I am going to let them read it in the paper. They never miss your column. I keep the air conditioning and the heat adjusted the way I like it. When they come in they fiddle with the thermostat and upset the temperature. Then they monkey with my TV and get it out of focus. My radio is set to the station I enjoy, but they change it to a rock station. My typewriter is busted, which is why I am writing this by hand. I don't need to sign my name. They know who I am. Thanks, Ann. Cramps Dear Cramps: So much for your appliances. Are your vocal cords also out of commission? If your young relatives are steady readers they will see themselves here today. But why do so many of you want me to do your dirty work? Speak up, Cramps. Dear Ann Landers: You have made plenty of trouble for me and I want you to know it. It's hard enough to be a step-mother how I've got double trouble because Ann Landers says, "A high school student should be able to date if she is dependable and has a sense of responsibility." My step-daughter is in high school. She is only 14 but has the body of an 18-year-old. The problem is she has the mind of a 10-year-old. We have told her no dating in cars until she is 16. All hell broke out around here when your column appeared. Thanks for nothing. Reader From The Old School Dear O. S.: Go back and read my advice again. Then read it to your step-daughter. I said a high school girl who has integrity and a record of dependability should be permitted to date. According to your letter, that child has neither. You're on solid ground, Mother. Don't let her beat you down. Dear Ann Landers: Recently you ran a letter from a guy who enjoys dressing up in women's clothes. He complained that the mail- order catalogues (his best' source) don't show anything feminine because the dames in this country have gone nutty over pants, mannish shirts, denim and suede. He can't order anything in silk or chiffon with ruffles and frills and he's not getting his kicks. Your advice was, "Buy the fabrics yourself and find a seamstress who can keep her mouth shut." It's people like you who make trouble for people like us. By suggesting that he find a seamstress who can "keep her mouth shut" you plant the idea that there is something evil about a man wearing feminine apparel in the privacy of his own home. If I (and millions of others) enjoy it, whom does it hurt? You owe us all an apology. Another Way Dear Way: O.K. I apologize. Buy your own fabrics and find a seamstress with a big mouth.
