Designers protect wildlife ROME (AP) Italian-Ameri: can designer Frank Martieri opened the recent showings of Italian fall and winter fashions with a revival of the 19805' veil- ed faces. Martieri had hooded dresses that made his models look like nuns and tight-fitting caps with short veils that covered the face. Some dresses were sleeve- less and low cut, others rose high round the neck and occa- sionally had a short cape. Day wear included a lot of heavy woollens in green, salmon and dark blue. Knee- length, A-line skirts and' tai- lored jackets were very much in the picture. Meanwhile, fur designers were trying to avoid problems with the protectors of wild Me. Most couturiers announced that they were not using spotted or striped furs to protect such en- dangered animals as the leop- ard and the tiger. Tivioli decided that natural white, ranging from rabbit to ermine, is the 1973-74 color. Hie 36 fashion houses showing collections in Rome this week are not expected to show any man, midi or maxi lengths. Most believe that knee lengths have come back to stay for awhile. Tastes differed, how- ever, when it came to deciding whether the silhouette should be slim and fitting or flared and pleated. INSURANCE LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES in.

Rigid society rejects ivoman minus husband By BERNARD WEINRAUB New York Times Service RAWALPINDI, Pakistan The neighbors of Nasim Khan ignore her. Freda Shah's friends are reluctant to phone. Mrs. Naheed Baoar stays home each "night, yearning to see a motion picture in the city. "I haven't seen a film in more than a Mrs. Badar, a young, sad-eyed mo- ther of two children. "I must remain indoors and wear dark clothes. I mustn't go out, espe- cially, in the evening. I am a widow whose husband is alive." Mrs. Badar and her two friends are wives of Pakistani prisoners of war, the group of held in 50 Indian camps since the strife in Bangladesh in December, 1971. Although the release of the prisoners is a deeply emotional political issue in Pakistan, the activist wives of the P.O.W.'s are, ironicaBy, the object of scorn and dismay in the rigid social atmosphere of this Moslem nation. "It's difficult for a woman'to survive alone in our society and people can't accept the fact of a woman leaving her home to work or speak said Mrs. Shah, the convent- educated wife of a Pakistani army engineer. "Here the only place for a woman is to be hid- den. When we demonstrate, when we talk on television, it's unheard of. I still feel guilty about it." Although the western concept of women's liberation, is re- mote, the wives of many of the BINGO SCANDINAVIAN HAU 22912th St. 'C N. DOORS OMEN AT 7 P.M.

Friends and relatives will be greeted from 6 to 9 p.m. be said Mrs. Shah, sit- ting in the Hving room of her father's home near downtown Rawalpindi. 'Teople have a narrow outlook. Even close friends stop calling because woman nothing." In such urban Rawalpindi, Karachi bore, the wives of have been virtually husband, husband is as and La- prisoners forced to drop their silent roles and ac- cept responsibilities that are rare for middle-class Pakis- tani women: visiting shops alone, conducting business transactions in stores and banks, arranging trips to rela- tives, driving cars, making bas- ic decisions about schools, phon- ing doctors, lawyers, insurance Beyond this, a group oMhe women have made the unusual gesture of turning into public figures, leading demonstrations urging the release of the pris- oners. The P.O.W.'s are hos- tages in the fierce dispute in- volving two other stranded groups on the subcontinent: the to Bengalis stranded in Pakistan and seek- ing to go to Bangladesh, as well as the to Bibaris, non-Bengal Moslems in Ban- gladesh. "A woman's place was al- ways around her children, and her home and pleasing her hus- said Mrs. Kban, the wife of a lieutenant colonel in the army's legal branch and the general secretary of the nation- al council for the repatriation of Pakistani prisoners of war. "Outside interests were dis- couraged. We rarely went out My husband was quite reli gious. Then, suddenly, he was captured and I felt everything was tost. "Our society is so conserva- tive that it's difficult to step outside the house sail Mrs. Khan, a firm, self-assured mother of four children. Within the village the wives of prisoners receive only spor- adic government payments lower-grade enlisted men earn about a month and live with mothers-in-law. "We visit the villages and the women are crying and praying to Mrs. Kban said. "They never get along with thet mothers-in-law and there's al- ways bickering about money about the children, about wha to do." 'The wives are and treated miserably anc there's nowhere to go for Mrs. Khan said. "The women say that there is no life without a husband and they might well be dead. And in villages that's how people treat a wo- man without a husband." Several prisoners' wives are said to nave suffered nervous breakdowns. Others are on sed- atives and under the care of doctors. Even urban women have come under family pres- sures for shopping alone. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Capital lldg. PHONE 328-76P4 Women's Kb scores again PRINCE GEORGE, B.C.

I decided to go back to work at a fraction of my former salary to help a friend who has had some financial re- verses. The man has a love- ly family and he deserves a break. The firm's most important customer has three mouths, no ears and eleven which he can't keep off me. He comes to the office three times a week and follows me around like a dog. His passes DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I are of dif- ferent religious faiths. It does not bother us but it bothers his family a great deal. They have never accepted me even though for five years I have done everything but stand on my head trying to be friend- ly. The only saving grace is that they live 50Q miles from here and we don't see them very often. The problem Is the tele- phone calls. When Bob's mother places a call (twice a week) she makes it person- to-person, which is more cost- ly, but she wants to be sure she talks to him and not to me. We have no children and no help only Bob and I and the dog. (Bosco is very smart, but I nave never known him to answer the At the dose of every can, Bob says, "Just a minute, Mother, Bernice wants to talk to you." I do NOT want to talk to her and I've asked him not to do this to me, but he says, "It's bad manners not to put you on." Please, Ann, straighten him out in your own inimitable style. Per- sona Non Grata DEAR JPER: When your inotber-in-iaw's call comes through, take Bosco for a walk. TeU your husband hi advance that you are going are getting bolder and I am sick of him. If he weren't such a big customer I'd give him a crack in the mouth. Is there a way to tell him off and still remain friendly? vffle DEAR G: If the future of the business depends on one octopus, you'd better lock the door now, honey. He didn't give the firm his account be- cause of you and he won't take it away if you put him in his place. Give the guy a knuckle sandwich and let the teeth fall where they may. to do it so he will not think you are trying to run out on him. OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. BERT Radio-TV Ltd.
