For years I travelled with crummy luggage. Finally I decided to do without a few other things and buy myself some really classy travelling a matched even if it took me two years. Which it did. In the past three months four relatives have asked if they could borrow my luggage. I said like a damned to the first per- son. Although she took only one piece the it looked as if it had been kick- ed at least halfway. Her only comment know how careless the airlines After I decided to say no to everyone who asked So now they are mad at me The last sorehead is going on a trip that will cost her Wouldn't you think she could afford to buy some decent luggage instead of trying to borrow The Target Dear I know of very few people who lend things and keep their friendships in- tact Better to say and let somebody else be mad than to say and be the one who is.

Dear Ann I have been reading your column for many but the most helpful bit of advice I ever got was that off-beat from a reader on how to fall asleep when you are tense. She said the tongue is one of the strongest muscles in the body and when a person is up- the tongue usually tenses up. Her suggestion to relax the tongue in the middle of the get it away from the roof or from the teeth was just terrific. Bless her. Bless you.

GM seats redesigned DETROIT General Motors says a proposed United States safety standard for children's car seats would outlaw its popular child and infant car seats even though they have received high ratings for safety. GM said it would have to take the seats off the market if the U.S. transportation department's stricter stan- dards are adopted for the fall of 1975. The company has sold 000 safety seats for children since it began marketing them a year ago.

Controversy rocks Scottish Hebrides Weavers suspended for using motors Herald London Bureau ABERDEEN There is a scene in the 1950s classic film The Battle of the Sexes in which Peter Sellers drives up to a highland Croft with an American efficiency expert who is a woman. playing a crafty old executive in an old-fashioned Edinburgh cloth-weaving is fulfilling the request of the woman hired to moder- nize his firm to see fac- tory As she staggers back aghast at the sight of a man and wife operating a Sellers slyly observes that they have about another 150 crofts to visit before she sees the whole Time has stood still in the Scottish Hebrides since that film was made. Each time a Canadian buys a Harris tweed jacket in a department store the famous Orb stamp on the inside pocket tells him that he has bought an article whose cloth was woven on a hand loom in a croft in the outer off the northwest coast of Scotland. Today a roiv is in progress in these rugged islands battered by the restless Atlan- tic. Five weavers have been sus- pended for the cardinal sin of using an electric motor to weave the world-famed Harris tweed cloth. The suspensions have been ordered by the all-powerful Harris Tweed Association. What has sent shock waves throughout Scotland is the bold assertion by one of the that 80 per cent of the tweed being woven on the island of Lewis alone is being woven with the aid of electric motors. It was after a visit to Lewis by two inspectors of the association that the suspen- sions took place. These inspectors are responsible for policing the industry and for applying the ORB stamp to hand-woven cloth. Suspension means that no more yarn will be supplied to Unique plan lets elderly keep homes HALIFAX -The Gra- ham Royal Commission re- port suggests a unique way in which elderly persons could afford to remain in their own homes. The report recommends that any person over 65 years of age with less than a speci- in- come should have the option of selling his home to the p'rovince in return for an to be adjusted with the cost of living. He and his spouse would have the right to live in their home at a low rental until they die or choose to leave. The province would pay municipal property taxes. The commission says the program would cost the prov- ince very perhaps noth- since it would probably eventually sell the property at the five weavers and any cloth woven by them will not be stamped. Use of power on the single- width looms is strictly contrary to the definition of Harris tweed which must be hand-woven in the homes of islanders in the outer Hebrides. But the new generation of weavers is apparently less prepared to ignore the fact that the industrial revolution has taken place. THE BETTER HALF Kenny who is one of the five 80 per cent of the Harris tweed cloth woven to- day on this island is woven with the aid of a motor. You can buy a power outfit at Stor- noway for about takes a day and a half to weave an average length tweed by pedalling the loom. But with a motor you can produce the same tweed in a By Barnes day and it is a much better cloth because the tension is better. think weavers are just showing the industry that in this day and age it is time for a change in the definition of Harris tweed. The mills are not worried about power- woven neither are the buyers nor the weavers. It is only the This heresy has forced into confused silence the Hebri- dean spinners advisory com- mittee and the Transport and General Workers which represent the weavers.
