Ann Landers UKRAINIAN GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH BINGO TUESDAY EAGLES HALL 13th St. N Jackpot in 52 numbers increases RMutaf BhiooB Dear Ann Landers: Why OK. you tell "Fighting to Stay at 104" that she is probably the envy of her friends and to go ahead and enjoy an extra piece of fudge cake? Chances are she CANT. Be it physical or emotional, her capacity for food is probably limited, which is one of the reasons she is "Fighting to Stay at 104." Don't you realize it's just as rude to tell a thin person, "Eat more, you need as to say to a fat person, "Don't eat anymore, you don't need Eating patterns are second only to sex when it comes to being tied in with one's emotional health. Overeaters and undereaters are that way for a reason. And it's bad manners to comment on the eating procedures of others, either way. I'm surprised you didn't know this. Denver Dear Deo: Of course you are right. And I DID know it, but like most people, there's a little clay arounohny ankles and I don't always come up with the best response every time. Thanks for a useful comment. Dear ADD Landers: From time to time you have spoken out against injustices in a wide variety of areas. Will you please say something about archaic laws that are a part of city ordinances? Would you believe that there existed on the books until recently an ordinance that said, "No person who is dise.ased, maimed, or mutilated or in any way deformed so as to be an unsightly or disgusting object may appear in public." This ordinance was passed in 1939 in your own Chicago. Under that law, President Roosevelt would have been banned from appearing in public. As a polio victim he could have been considered "maimed." How such a law got passed in the first place is beyond me. Why they continue to sit on the books is another mystery. What's the answer? Windy City Wanderer Dear W. C. W.: Inertia. Nobody bothered (until recently) to look into the old codes and do something about them. Incidentally, I am told it is still unlawful in Chicago to sleep in a bakery or wear a hatpin whose point sticks out more than half an inch or let a pigeon fly over the 7th Ward.

For generations the sons of the wealthy, as their fathers before them, and their grandfathers before that, have been put through public schools (privately run fee- charging boarding schools) and turned out into the establishment to become part of the "old boy" network. Now for the first time, girls are following their fathers and brothers into the same classrooms. Co-education, compara- tively new in Britain, has come largely through the influence of a government plan making state schools co- educational. In the tradition bound public schools, the revolution is still embryonic only 70 of the 200 such institutions are taking girls, and those mostly only in the senior classes. But it is backed by a groundswell of support that has spread even to Gordonstoun, the Scottish school where Prince Charles was educated. And soon girls will be walking through the hallowed portals of Eton, Britain's most exclusive and artistocratic school, founded in 1440 by Henry VI (though they will be only the daughters of The girls say they like public schools because they provide a higher standard of teaching and a wider range of activities than girl's schools. "My chief memories of my girls' school are hunger and says 16-year-old Ellen Laskey, a new pupil at Marlborough. "Here we spend free time at a number of clubs and societies, or a whole range of sports from horse riding to fencing. Miss Laskey, the daughter of the British ambassador in Vienna, says her brother, her father and her uncle were all old Marlburians (educated at "But the main reason I came here was that at my girls' schools, I was the only person studying mathematics. Here I'm one of 90." Another "pupil, Marion Ingram, pointed out that the size of classes, averaging 10 ensured personal attention. "The whole approach to study is more realistic. There is less pressure on exams and more emphasis on thinking and reading." Helen Padbury, a student at Kingswood public school, which is a newcomer to co- education, said that before she went there she was painfully shy. "me first few weeks seem strange and the girls cling she said. "But the boys soon accept the girls and vice versa and it gives everyone confidence." According to the headmaster of Kingswood School, L. Campbell, large numbers of parents are looking for a "change of educational scene" for their daughters when they reach the age of 16. "Parents are uneasy about the permissiveness of .universities he said. "They prefer their girls to be thrown into a society where they can get used to boys first, and they feel that adjustment is best made in the last two years at The first public school to introduce co-education was Marlborough, where-fees are a year and admission lists are booked for the next three years. In 1967, the headmaster admitted 15 daughters of old boys (former pupils) into the sixth form, the school's senior level, where pupils 16 to 18 years of age specialize in two or three subjects. It is equiva- lent to the sophomore year at American colleges. "The school had an unashamedly male chauvinist attitude toward the said the current headmaster, R. W. Ellis, "but the senior boys had a strong social need for the idea and the girls clearly had a civilizing effect on them. "We have never formally advertised that we are co- educational and we have made few provisions for the Ellis said. The girls, now numbering 55, sleep two or three to a room, whereas the boys sleep 15 or 20 to a dormitory. Unlike the boys, the girls have no uniform. They study, eat and join in some sports with the rest of the school, but they can always retreat to their own quarters. The headmaster says that boys who had been isolated from the opposite sex all the way up the school were often shy or resentful when they first encountered girls in the sixth form, "but they soon accept the situation and are proud that Marlborough was the first to adopt co- education." "As for the girls being swamped by boys, the first characteristic we look for at interview is self-reliant girls who are ready to join in Ellis said. Smoking materials might be banned from hospital EDMONTON (CP) The Edmonton General Hospital "can no longer condone the sale of known injurious products" and therefore is considering banning the sale of smoking materials on its premises, G. L. Pickering said. The hospital's executive director said in a news release that the ban is being considered "because of the number of persons being admitted to the hospital with serious lung conditions as a direct result of smoking." WteeWhimsy win be sent the original artfor his quote. Send your child's quotation to this paper. At any one time, patients in one area of the hospital are being treated for serious lung conditions and in another area of the hospital other persons are purchasing smoking materials which eventually may result in them having to be hospitalized with serious lung conditions "The present paradox cannot be permitted to continue Mr. Pickering said the hospital is examining the problem "from the standpoint that it is better to prevent disease than to try to cure it after it occurs." Lost bargain VICKSBURG, Mich. (AP) Police say they have arrested a man who apparently hates to lose out on a great bargain. The 20-year- old man was arrested on breaking and entering charges after police spotted him carrying clothes from a local department store.
