Authors defend 'Three Marias9 as depicting existing situation .LISBON (AP) An attract- ive young actress and drama critic complained Tuesday that it is impossible for a woman to go around' Lisbon without being insulted on the street. Maria Emilia Correia was testifying here in defence of "Three who are charged with offending public morals. Maria Velho da Costa, Maria Isabel Barreno and Maria Teresa Horta, co- authors of the book, Novas Cartas Portugueses Portuguese are on WeeWhimsv trial on morals charges resulting from its publication in April, 1972. The collection of essays and fictional letters protesting the status of Portuguese women was seized as pornographic. Miss Correia denied the book is porno- graphic and said the real offence to public morals occurs every day on Lisbon's sidewalks and subways. She said women are frequently the target of in- sulting remarks and shocking proposals from young men. "Far from being pornogra- phic, this book only depicts and denounces a state of things which exists, and calls attention to a situation which should be she said. Another witness, Maria Fernanda Botelho, a 47-year- old writer, praised the book's literary value and said it only sought to focus public attention on the country's social problems. The three co-authors are free on bail. Two of the women work for the ministry of economic affairs while the third edits the book and cultural pages of an afternoon newspaper. The trial continues. Ann Landers will be sent the original an for his Quote Send your child's quotation to this paper imCAL MISCttmON C Dear Ann Landers: I'm a minister in a Southern town. People are supposed to come to me for advise and here I am writing to Ann Landers. Incredible! 1 took this job five years ago. With the job came a 60- year-old sexton, a lonely man who lost his wife and has no children. The job is his whole life- He hangs around after working hours, won't leave and is a great talker. The fellow is good-hearted and well-liked, but his nose is in everything. When parishion- ers come to see me he sits in my office and they won't talk in front of him. I've asked him to please go home after work and not hang around. He says, "I'm sorry. You're right." pouts for a few days and then it's the same story. My secretary has threatened to quit. My wife is fed up. and so am I. But I'm afraid to fire him because he has so many friends. Can you offer some advice before we all quit and leave him to run the place? Stymied Dear Reverend S.: Give the lovable pest one more warning. Either he leaves the church at quitting time or he's fired. Then, do it. And, if the congregation would rather have him than you, LET him run the place. Dear Ann Landers: My girlfriend and I would like you to suggest a computer dating service we can write to. The guys around here are so creepy we wouldn't go out with them if they got down on their hands and knees and begged us, which they haven't. As a matter of fact, neither one of us has had a date for at least six months, which is a stinkin' way to live. We are respectable, well- employed, not bad looking and have no bad habits. We realize these computer dating services aren't free, but we are willing to pay if you will recommend one. D. And H. Dear D. and H.: Sorry, I am opposed to all computer dating services, even those with names of ministers in their ads. Strangers can be dangerous and I want no part of putting my readers together with God Knows Who. Dear Ann Landers: If you print this letter maybe some inconsiderate, selfish idiot will see the light. When you accidentally run over a cat or a dog, please have the decency to stop and see if there is a chance the animal can be rushed to a veterinarian and saved. If it's too late for a vet, check with the neighbors on that street and find out whose pet it was so you can inform the people. If you come upon a dead pet in the street or road, please stop and remove it before the children see it. That twisted, mangled form of the little pet they loved so much could cause nightmares for years. Thank you. One Who Ctres Dear One: Here's your letter. But it's not for the "inconsiderate, selfish idiots." They couldn't care less. It's for people who love animals and need to be reminded. MATES YOU Will BE PROUD TO OWN. PERSONALIZED AT HOME SERVICE.

In a growing movement towards community mental health services, Dr. Mcllveen told conference on new trends in mental health, nurses are trying out new ways of using their skills. Psychiatric nurses were moving from their traditional role of providing custodial care in large mental institutions into private practices as therapists and setting up their own clinics. They worked with social workers, psychiatrists and psychologists as a team even the patient had more responsibility for himself in the treatment process. Dr. Mcllveen said a nurse might do individual, group or family therapy, provide consultation to schools and community agencies, or identify groups that have a high risk for mental health problems. "They can address themselves to the health of a community itself and the factors there that can affect mental health. They can be active in social change." Dr. Mcllveen said nurses studying community mental health at the University of Washington are learning the social and cultural factors in mental health, systems theory, program development and evaluation.

"A pot keeps on being, doesn't take up space, and it's practical. One hundred years from now it will be even more of a treasure." Renault, a retired textile businessman, says he takes cremated remains, mixes the white bone ash with clay, and creates something fitting to the dead person's memory. Renault says he has moulded 80 pots from human ashes. Although he doesn't ad- vertise, friends tell friends and he's got a backlog of or- ders. Costs range upward from for a small urn, he said.
