As or.e of those on the other side of being a house- wife, my firs; experience with the spectacular morn- ing sale, is still fresh in my mind. Necessity, as they say, hemg the mother of inven- tion, forced me 10 crawi out of the sack at an un- taicAvn-io-huir-ans hour and drift toward the big store Fully expecting to be the one and only creature stirring on the streets, the sight ahead produced a wide-eyed stare. A gasde of females haunted the sidewalk out- side the piace. peering into the windows for signs of staff-life, trying ihe doors occasionally and checking the list of sale goodies with fat red and blue marks. on earth possessed all those women to stand out front with bags in their hands and curlers in their hair was beyond my understanding. It was barely 9 a.m. a tune for sleeping, not communal carousing! The doors were unlocked, the staff stepped aside, and the hoarde swept in coats a-3yin'. Momentarily forsenir.g the reasons behind my participation in this I siood aside {the only safe spot by now'i watching them descend upon table after table of bargains.

She stopped and said incredulously 'is that Embarrassed to be such a petty buyer among the big-time spe-ders. I whispered a yes. grabbed the bag and ricocheted from one bargain hunting body to another in a hasty exit. Anci have never even brave ('or stupid) enough to try again.

MOSCOW (AP) Workers at Candy Factory Ko. 1 in the central Siberian city of Keme- rovo were routinely frisked at the end of their shirts to com- bat petty pilferage.
