TOO MUCH FOR DAD LONDON (AP) John Evans, a 26-y e a r -o I d steel- worker, waited five hours for his first be born. He admired her and then fainted. family life by MAUREEN JAMIESON 2 localioni COLLECE MALL 111 61 h STREET SOUTH CINCE last fall I have been laboring under the happy de- lusiora that tills weekend we would gather up our kinder and head for Disneyland. Early this week f was planning what to do, see and miss there. Everytliing was coming up roses until my husband call- ed for a democratic family vote. It was i rigged ballot. With (he smug smirk of victory on his deceitful face, he announced the vole was seven to one against the trip, with the cat the only abstainer. Never have I seen a bunch of people so anxious to vacation at home. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't known they'd got themselves a boat to mess around with. After several trial runs, they've now got to the point where it lakes a mere two hours to start the molor, so they get to spend maybe a whole 40 minutes puttering around in the water before darkness falls. Well, I finally agreed to go along with the deal when they put it in writing thnl we would stick to Park Lake. Why Park Lake? Last weekend we discovered Big Lake, a truly handsome, uncluttered body of water tacked on to the end of a farmer's cow pasture. It's about five miles long and delightfully primitive. In our innocence we regarded the complete lack of docking facilities and the soggy wet field as mere mosquito biles on the r.eck ot life. That is until we tried to haul the boat out of the water, and found the trailer and half the car were up to their arm- pits in glorious mud. After the first hour of push and pull, I had visions of leav- ing the whole outfit where it was, paying it regular monthly visits to keep in touch. And had I known the family was plot- ting to depth-charge my trip to Disneyland, I would certainly have given it a couple of vicious kicks to help it on its way to a watery grave. Sad to say, a friendly family of campers took pity on us, and in another hour or two, we found our whole entourage back on more-or-less firm ground. Frankly, that is not my holiday bag. so I'm working on a plan to scuttle their nasty little holiday plot. Maybe I'll win after all. They won't find their Park Lake holiday such plain sailing if I kick up a storm of protest. Could be they'll ship me out to Bow Island or somewhere so that I won't be able to make waves for my amateur seafarers. If I can't have fun in the California sun, I'm willing to settle for solitary peace find quiet and a good book on dry land, Are You Ready For Business?

Last night marked Roaring Twent activities at the fail- grounds, with participants being stuffed into a Volkswagen, try- ing to climb a greased pole, hula hooping into fame, and finally taking out their ven- geance in a pie fight. All was not in vain. Prize money was offered to the suc- cessful competitors, with ?100 going to the winning car-stuff- ing team; to the champion hula hooper; and a red ribbon- ed S50 to the best climber. Crowds of young and old gathered to watch the contes- tants, offering encouragement and laughing through the stunts. Clambering up a greased pole proved to be a lot harder than it looked, with most of the ac- lion happening on the ground as both girls and boys slithered off onto foam cushions. Preference was given to being pushed, pulled, piled and prodded into the love bug car. Rules kept the real little tykes out of the contest, with a limit of 5 feet tall and over set for entrants. A particnlarly avid team of stuffers managed to contort J2 people into a space designed for four, putting up n good fight for the world record of 29. Top swinger of the night managed to win her way to the 510 prize with a hula hooping time of over seven minutes, and the help of her knees which kept the hoop going for three. Slap-stick comedy provided a good finishing act to the Roar- ing Twent youth day, with over 500 cream and jell-o pies flying through the air, splatting and plastering the fighters. Spectators backed off quick- ly once the fight was on, with few casualties other than an abandoned purse. Fashions of the era were mo- delled during the fashion show, prior to the big, and free, open air dance, which closed activi- ties fa- the Roaring Twcut Day. The events were sponsored by the Youth Exhibition Board. -Phil Fnulds Pholoi Cream pie fight their fall-winter collections today with designers trying to entice rather than command. "There is no longer a hard trend hi haute said U .S .-b o r n designer Tiziani, normally one of the pace-set- ters for the jet-setters. Despite what he said, Ti- ziani's style is a classic sport wear look for daytime or evening wear. Coats are looser with modified kimono- type sleeves. Designers are trying to eliminate such superfluous features as padding, and to keep the lines simple and sober. But they have made up for it in other ways. Fancy jewelry is an eye- catching feature of many collections, including chains, strass necklaces and brooches, back beads and pearls. Also in vogue are the soft cloche hats, little caps and he- rets so soft they can bo. stuffed into a handbag or pocket when not needed and pushed back into shape later Talitzinc offers fur turbans as an option. Some designers still favor trousers, baggy for evening wear, while others feature Ihe easy-lc-wear shirtwaist dress. Dresses have the last word in a bid for greater femininity. Skirts are mostly kjiee length, In daywenr at least, but one designer plans to lower hem- lines at the back Into a sort of train. Adolescent abortion study CALGARY Bearing an Il- legitimate child is no more isychologically damaging to a :eenager than having an abor- tion, the Canadian Pediatric So- ciety was told here. The finding resulted from a tour-year study at the adoles- cent clinic of the Montreal Chil- dren's Hospital. Clinic director Dr. Peter Ben- jamin said the study considered 50 teenagers and included a one-year, follow-up program. "We concluded that these pa- iienls have no major psycholo- gical upset in the near term fol- lowing therapeutic he said. The majority gets, re- lief and remain the same, per- sonality-wise. Practically none of the teen- agers, mostly aged 16 to 18, con- sidered using contraception, feeling that planning intercourse had an unsavory connotation, he said. The pill was not a satisfactory method of birlh control be- cause of the natural adolescent aversion to taking medication. The intraulcrine device was more acceptable and effective. Most teen-agers in recent years requested abortions oa the first telephone call to the clinic where previously they said they had some other medi- cal problem requiring attention.
