They get things done, especially if there is ri- valry. Three 18th-century court la- dies vied to see who could build the biggest house. A wealthy widow, Cecillie Chris- tine Scholler, won easily. Her house with some 70 rooms is still standing here, the largest wooden structure in Northern Europe. She didn't spend much time here, however. She preferred the gaiety of court life. But it was her status symbol. It still is one, for some 20 years after her death in 1786, the house was sold to the state for around to serve as an official residence. It was the best bargain the state ever made. Now it a royal residence but tourists are permitted in. The royal family is seldom here. CITY SCENES ON WALLS While not much of the ele- gant furniture is original, the house has been refurnished in the period. There are, how- ever, several of her wall mir- rors framed in floral painted wood. The handsome hand- made lace curtains in the din- ing room are from 1840. The walls are done in five huge panels of painted scenes of Venice, Rome and London.

She was extremely popular with the Norwegian people. There's an upstairs veranda overlooking a cobble court- yard and a circular, now pub- lic, park encircled by linden trees. The house is painted in a delighful pale gold, with grey window trim. FALSE ALARM The people of Trondheim are proud of Stiftsgarden, as the royal residence is called, but also apprehensive. Fire could easily destroy this his- toric building. One post-war scare is recalled by Christian Aas, fourth-generation "keep- er" of the residence. The royal family was in and tho king decided to open the sauna bath in an adjacent building. What everyone had forgotten was that, during the the entire portrait photograph is completed in gorgeous colour! CHOOSE FROM FINISHED PORTRAITS-NOT PROOFS!

So all the fire equipment ui the city rushed there. The royal family s on the lawn, stunned by the uproar. And of course, no fire. Some 150 years after Mrs. SchoHcrs housing venture, another woman arrived from Russia to visit her sister in Trondheim. The 1918 Russian revolution broke out and the woman, whose name was Vic- toria, never returned home. Sho married a wealthy mer- chant named Bachke, who was some 20 years her senior. He was musically inclined, with an idea for a music mu- seum. After his 1946 death Victoria Bachke started it at Stiftsgarden in his memory. Rooms are devoted to impor- tant composers an dto various instruments. Today the mus- eum's guide plays on some of the pi Moonlight Son- ata in the Beethoven room, for example, played on a piano of the period. Victoria must have had great persuasive powers, to acquire some of the unique items. She even charmed the Russian state into giving her an early, beardless photograph of Tchaikovsky, from one of their museums. And how she got a grand piano from Vi- enna in 1930 by horse and sled is another of her miracles. NAIROBI (Renter) A Ken- yan woman (need with a possi- )le miniskirt ban is threatening .0 wear only her grandmother's traditional beads. A man writing to a Nairobf newspaper complains that mini- skirts encourage prostitution. He wants women wrapped (rom hesd to toe. Kenya is in the midst c[ a hot debate on jest what constitutes traditional Atricaii dress am! who should wear it. Threatening to ban miniskirts. President Jome Kenyatta toid'a rally recently that wearing such clothing was a wild halnt that had propelled She pace o( prosti- tution in Kenya. Appealing to parents to eradi- cate miniskirt wearing, he de- clared: "I( this step will not yield (rail, I shall not hestote to pass a ruling to this so tliEl foreigners who (requent our country may not leave with the notion that Kenya is a pros- pering market (or prostitution." The president's attitude is by no means shared by all Kenya's women. Thougli meetings of parents and councillors in coun- try towns condemn the mini- drts, girls continue to wear hem, ETTER THAN BEADS Some feel strongly about D ossible ban. Writing to the ewspaper Daily Nation, James (amaii said his wife refused aci- mantly to wear a n c e s t r a lyles. 'She has the peculiar idea lat her ancestors' clothes were ery brief indeed and she says mini is a maxi compared with er grandmother's he wrote. 'And she insists that i( slu vent truly traditional in dress he'd be arrested the momen he led the house." Kenya's president could lake ;ome comfort (rom rulings in, Neighboring Uganda. There 'resident Tdi Amin ordered ban on miniskirts, hot panto and maxi-skirls with a V-shaped slit down the front. And Kenyalta obviously has some support in the country. Two young wearing miniskirts in Limuru, about 20 miles from Nairobi, were beaten by a group of youths and thrown into a mud puddle. A passing middle-aged woman (her hit the girls with an urn- irella as they lay in the water. a out Grandma gr actuates FRESNO, Calif. ine Cooper, her college educa- ion delayed until "I was an old will be graduated 'rom Fresno State University this month at the age of 82.

"I wanted to go to college when I finished liigh school in 1909, but my folks couldn't af- ford it, so I waited until I was an old lady." Mrs. Cooper feels the thrill of graduating exercises, just as do fellow students young enough to be her great grandchildren. 'I bought my cap and gown and am sending my announce- she said in an inter- view. Now Mrs. Cooper plans to take a year of postgraduate work in Latin, the subject that got her to attend Fresno State. "I wanted to study Latin in high school, but Mom said Mrs. Cooper recalled. Mrs. Cooper has 'circulation and heart problems which limit her walking and demand the wheelchair at the school.
