Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta J6 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Snturtlny, July 19, 1972 ABUNDANT BEAUTY Those rainy dayj were a help ond not a hindrance when it came 1o growing flowers. Proof of the matter exists in the garden of Mrs. Mary Gecho, 1227 10 Ave. N., lively and bright colors. whose backyard is full of Bill Groenerr, pholo WeeWhimsv 2 Locations COLLEGE MALL 112 Slh STREET SOUTH Japanese professor claims girls flaunt legs more now TOKYO (AP) There was a time when Japanese women were so sensitive about the shape of their logs that any man who valued a girl's friend- ship never would mention them. No more. Girls now flaunt their and sometimes mini- skirts and hot pants, and leg watchers are delighted. The shape has changed from the days critics considered the legs of Japanese girls too short, too heavy and, some added un- chivalrously, too hairy. Prof. Yoshiyasu Nakao of the Nalional College of Fine Arts in Tokyo has spent years studying Japanese legs. He says a high- protein diet and Western living habits popular since the Secont World War have c h a n g e things. In the past, says Nakao, the Japanese lived on a high-starch diet and women spent hours squatting on straw-mattec floors. Today they sit morn in chairs, eat Western foods, and like Western women, are more active in sports which help toni their muscles. Girls today are roughly oni inch taller than their mothers The extra height, Nakao says comes from longer legs and lit lie change in torsos. "The torso of a Japanese glr Is bottom-heavy but the longer legs have made this less proml he observes. Swiss cavalry to be converted BERN, Switzerland (Renter) The threat of mechanization looms over Europe's last sur- viving cavalry force, the heav- ily-armed dragoons who guard neutral Switzerland's borders. The horsemen in 18 squadrons are scheduled to con- vert to tanks by the end of next year. Already the numerous sup- porters the cavalry have launched a campaign to reverse the government decision. They have drawn up a petition to be presented to Parliament, and are expected to press for a na- tional referendum. In a country whose rural areas are noted for their strong sense of opponents of the defence ministry scheme would have a good chance. But they might do less well in a referendum where city dwellers would outnumber the rural pop- ulation. The Swiss cavalry Is no senti- mental relic devoted only to ceremonial duties. The steel-helmeted dragoons who wear grey-green uniforms have a well-defined role alon; the frontiers of this landlockec country. Their hardware eludes up-to-date rockets am anti-tank grenade-launchers well as automatic weapons. Their supporters say that In the wooded hilly terrain which accounts or much of Switzer land's border territory, they are quicker and more versatile than mechanized forces. Most major Swiss newspapers have supported the government The Influential Neue Zuercbe Zeitung said: "The army ia no the place to maintain and lool after museum pieces at consid ercble cost." A petition circulated by the cavalry's supporters said the government underestimated thi importance of the horse in the hilb and wet climate of much o Switzerland. The horse also helped lo maintain the army's link with nature and the envi ronment, it added. Capture that ona-- In n life- time pose now in natural color.

I was left with n business to run, the family house and two younger brothers to for. I am only 22, but mora mature than most guys my age. Three months ago I married a girl, 19. I told her I would have lo spend several evenings working and that I had ika responsibility of my brothers (aged 15 and She didn't have any complaints before we got married but now she's singing a different tune. She wants me to sell the business, move to the Coast and let my kid brothers manage on their own. I've tried lo make her understand that I wouldn't feel right about it. She says she is more of a housekeeper than a wife that she didn't expect so much laundry and BO much cooking. I realize it's hard on a young bride lo start out with two teen-agers in the house, but these kids need me. If it comes to a choice, what should I do Rockford Problem DEAR ROCK: Tell your wife you can't abandon your brothers until they are old enough to care for themselves. It's up to her to keep her bargain or leave. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am 33 years old, have been, married for eight years and have two small children. My husband is ten years my senior a quiet man, a good pro- vider wlra does not like people. Our .social life consists of his brother and his wife and a cousin he was raised with. Oc- casionally he will let me invite a neighbor couple in. But not very often. The problem is that I have signed up for a study group which meets at our church once a week from till p.m. My husband refused to join so I go with my sister- in-law. I've always known that I'm not very pretty. I'm pre- sentable. Period. No man would look at me twice. My hus- band insists that every man in town wants me, including the study group leader who is our pastor. When I come home from these study group meetings he gives me the third degree although he knows I went with my sister-in-law and came home with her. He also checks tha speedometer on the car to make sure I didn't drive anywhere else. He is becoming Increasingly suspicious for no reason. f once read someplace that this is a sign of mental ill- ness. Is it? If so, should I stop going lo ths study group to please liim? Please advise me. E.S.A. DEAR E.S.A.: The symptoms you describe sound as if your husband might be mentally ill. Urge him to go for an evaluation. In the meantime, if you give up the study group it will not help him, so continue and enjoy yourself. Klondike Kate recovers wink EDMONTON (CP) Klondike Kate can wijik again.
