In the fourth document on Mary he has issued in his 10 Horse-bit shoe still sells well NEW YORK (AP) Well- heeled Gucci fans turned out for a spring summer show of the latest skirts, pants, dresses and horse-bit- trimmed shoes. The look has been imitated in all price ranges, from the shoe with the gold horse bit across the instep to the red and green striped detailing on luggage and purses. Down the street, Gucci looking purses were selling for Real Gucci purses run from to Women's shoes go from to However, the firm's business has increased 25-fold over in the last five years. Gucci has 16 stores in various countries and 42 franchises in the United States and Europe. Although other companies are constantly changing styles in a frenetic search for something new, Gucci has continued to carry the horse bit shoe for 30 years, along with other up-dated styles. "Other 'firms look for something new because they don't have a consistent clientele who appreciates one said Dr. Aldo Gucci, a senior member of the Italian-based firm. If there is a place for the horse1 bit, it will appear as a print on a shirt, or down the side of leather pants. The best looks in the show were the simplest, neat pants with knit tops and leather jackets. TBe worst were the ones with a few too many strips, pockets or bits of gold. Colors were soft salmon, lapis' blue and gold. Animal prints of ostriches and zebras turned up oh sweaters and blouses.

Mummy, because the school is being used for something else. I think the government is holding a raffle." years as the Roman Catholic pontiff, Pope Paul describes her as "the new woman" who took an active role in the early church. The document, issued Friday at the Vatican, says that to "the modern woman anxious to participate with decision-making power in the affairs of the community, Mary will appear not as a mother exclusively concerned with her own divine Son but rather as a woman who did not hesitate to proclaim that God vindicates the humble and oppressed. "Mary, the new woman, stands at the side of Christ, the new Man." Joyce Slayton Mitchell, head of the Women and Religion Task Force of the National Organization for Women, said Friday: "When Pope Paul talks about making Mary someone for women to identify with, you get the feeling that what we get is Mary, while the men have Jesus. And all that virgin business is still maintaining that women should be asexual, which is what the church has always told us, and feminists aren't going to buy that." Ms. Mitchell said that rather than talking about increased devotion to Mary, the church should deal with other important issues as yet unresolved. "We need equaluy for women at the top. We need women priests, even a woman Pope." Ms. Mitchell added that her group "will no longer accept St. Paul's statement that Christ is the head of the Church for man and that man is the head of the Church for woman."

Chile regime makes tight school order Expert Hair Cuts Gemini Beauty Salon 706 3rd 8. 327-2079 Optn Thunday Night SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) "They're much more strict; maybe it's like the army." The 11-year-old youngster was making his comment on his first week 'of the new school year under Chile's military regime. The armed'-forces that ousted President Salvador Allende last September have reinforced measures to eliminate politics from the schools and "establish order and discipline." Primary and secondary schools opened with bans against boys having long hair or girls wearing miniskirts. Courses have been revised and Gilberto Zarate, the superintendent of education, announced that six text books have been removed from high schools and one was modified. Several teachers said that at least twice that number of texts had been removed from courses in both primary and high schools, including some introduced during the three years of Allende's leftist administration. School uniforms are required. Uniforms have been traditional but the rule was ignored by many pupils in recent years. The need to buy new uniforms and school supplies has cut into the March budget of many poor and middle-class families. School bells rang for nearly 2.6 million youngsters in lower schools last week. Classes won't resume until next week in most universities where the military purge cut deeper. An estimated of the university students were either expelled or suspended for varying lengths of time. It is believed that more than 300 professors were fired. No opening date has been set for the teachers' colleges that had an enrolment exceeding last year. Rear-Admiral Hugo Castro Jiminez, the junta's education minister, said "anarchy reigned" in the colleges with professors using classes to in- doctrinate their students in Marxism. He said courses have been revised. Military rectors have been appointed to head the country's eight universities and scores of ranking educationists under Allende have fled the country or are among about persons still in detention camps.
