Being ten and very saving for another day concsious, Lil stored iier Easter chocolate airplane favor in an upstairs closet, while I munched my rooster into oblivion. I had also seen her hiding her airplane, and for days afterward, tore off bits of wings, tires, propellers and was working on the main portion by the time an upset sister discovered her gluttonous sibling. Since then, we have had continuous run-ins which van' in seriousness. A shared measles attack spoiled Easter holiday plans foi Lil. and confined in the same room with a bratty seven year old was more than she could bear during another spring fiasco Two consecutive Easters were spent with a grim and frozen silence between us when I accidentallv spoiied her Easter dress with melted chocolates, and followed through by giving her a bloody nose prior to going to church. But with my childhood out of the way. and teenage years well begun. Lit gained confidence and faced Easter with a smile. By then I had acquired Mac. my infamous com- panion in crime, and Easter holidays were initiated with a sleeping party, (which we forgot to tell Lil about.1 Sleeping space was provided in the extra bedroom next to that of my sister, and at first all went well because she was out with her own pals. In her absence. Mac and I, confirmed cowards in the dark, invented a method of turning off the light without leaving the protection of the bed. Our minds had concocted a string of belts (found on my sister's dresses) which ran from tiie chain of the overhead light, across the room, and attached to the handle of the bedside dresser. Lil happened to walk directly into the thing, and nearly turned gray with fright. More recent incidents included bleaching and shrinking her newest wool sweater, explaining the orange spots as coke stains, and entertaining her then three year old daughter for several hours without mentioning I had her. This year, 7-umor has it she is seriously thinking of spending a safe, quiet, and very nn-sisterly type of Easter by staying home.

We've had a lot less trouble with animals than people. Since I've been here 1 know of only two instances where a pel damaged hotel property. In cases a little shampoo on iha remedied Ihc problem. People are another story. They've left us with broken chairs, mirrors, burnt mattresses and food on the wallpaper. One drunk actually put his first through a TV screen. With the exception of a beach slipper at the pool, nothing has ever been stolen from us by a pet. Our two-legged guests, on the other hand, have helped themselves to lamps, linen, pillows, pictures off the wall, shower curtains, any- thing that wasn't riveted to the door. No one has ever lieen injured in our place hy a pet, we've had eight guests hurt in family fights since one woman who shot her husband. I read recently about a motel for pets only.

"From the fuss surrounding the Olympic sex tests for women, one might gain the impression tlial women's sports clubs are harboring myriads of males maskuerad- ing as females in order to gain unfair advantage on the Dr. i c k a r d com- plained. "Women athletes, except for the very rare exceptions, are real women." MORE RESPONSIVE Generally, said Dr. Pickard, girl athleles "are much more in te rested in sex and physi- cally more responsive than their less-active sisters." "In oilier words, they are more sexy." Dr. Pickard, a keen swim- mer and tennis player, is 33 and unmarried. "Don't let the girl athletes' 1 THE BETTER HALF developed muscles put you s'-.e said.

A certain girl who specializes in pornographic modelling and stag films is a dead ringer lor me. .Several months when I first saw a picture of her, I was certain someone had superimposed my head on another woman's body. (The dimensions were definitely not mine.) A few days later a man who works with my husband told him he had scsn some staf! movies at the home of a friend and I was the star. My husband asked if he could arrange to sec the film and his wish was granled. He came home in a state of shock and Die giri was my absolute double, except for the Campbell Singers ar.d body.
