liiillllilBlllBlllllllllllllllllllilUIClH..... Just Jude By JUDE TURIC SNOW bunny i am not, and chances are 1 never will be. Even (.hough thi: winler wonderland magazines ad- vertise all summer long, my ski finesse just can't make the grade. Sparkling baby blue jumpsuits, deep red sweaters and matching toques, shiny boots and unscuffed skis are all beyond my reach. TJie girl beside the fireplace recounting adventures of, daring and skill, will always be someone other than me. Sad, but true, I'm the one in faded jeans, scraggy sweater and grey wool socks. While the Sweet Snow Bunny snags the best ot the creamy crop of dashing male skiers to help her ride the tow, I manage to team up with the seven-year-old freckle faced pro telling me to keep my skis on my own side of the track. Miss Bunny slips off the T-bar with deliberate grace; and I pull up mumbling about keeping the down- hill ski oul of Ihe way of the uphill ski. Finally at the top of nowhere, I stand quietly, pondering how many flips it takes to break a leg and how bad it hurts when you get stabbed by a run- away ski. Meanwhile, a flashy swoosh of baby blue heads hellbcnt-for-lealher past me, raising powder and look- ing grand. What started oul as a great descent, turns into an aristocratic tumble, and behold, out of the treeline, coming to baby blue's assistance, something tall, dark and handsome. My own run starts olf with a pigeon-toed, knock- kneed, snowplow sweep; looking from behind like an unhappy duck in dire circumstances. This quickly deteriorates into a wild, screeching, arms askew downhill charge, without any semblance of control. The nearest snowbank stops my act. and sends me sliding, belly down, head first, for another 30 feet. So this is a wipeoul! Surveyed from the point of departure. 1 must ap- pear lo be a sad sprawl of crossed skis, limbs, poles, assorted mitts, scarf and toque. Only the occasional chuckle and 'Jiave a nice document my existence. Back at the lodge. Snow Bunny smiles, laughs and enjoys the spoils of a good day. bedecked in the best of Apres ski styles and besieged b.y admirers. Finally able In collect my thoughts, and walk like a human being minus Ihe inflexible lead boots. I sink into oblivion and have flashbacks of each glorious in technicolor. The day a lotal loss, but nol a lesson learned. I'll be back, fear not. And someday I'll even ski. OPPOSED TO WOMEN'S LIB Esther Vilor, author of the European best seller, The Manipulated Man, claims that men nre trained and exploited by women. Shown here several months ago in tondon, Miss Vilor believes the American male is the most oppressed 'man in the western world.

SAO PAULO, Brazil (API- A young Argentine woman may be the first in history to give birth afler an ovary transplant, her doctors say. The baby is due in March, and so far there are no complications. A report on the case was to be made loday to the Brazil-Is- raeli Congress of Fertility and Slenlity by Dr. Raul Blanco, head of the Argentine surgical learn lhat performed the trans- plant lasi March in Buenos Aires. "The pregnancy already is more than three months in progress, and it is completely normal." Dr. Blanco said in an interview. "We have not encountered any symptoms of rejection so far, and we have not adminis- lered any treatment to prevent possibility." The 311-year-old surgeon ac- knowledged thai the genetic the woman receiving the trans- plant that it wilt not affect her personality and to convince the donor that she can have chil- dren normally despite the re- moval of one of her two ovar- ies The doctor declined to give personal details of the pregnant woman, her husband or the donor, including their ages and occupations, "to avoid questions of possession between the two women." He did say the women were not related.

Aged aboul 80, wearing a pony tail, fringed dress, and spectacles, she goes off into peals of laughter as she recalls Ihe saga of women's liberation this century.

"KILLED OFF" MEN Miss Loos, who has just fin- ished co-authoring a book about exploring New York called Twice Over Lightly with an old stage friend, Helen Hayes, says the turnabout began with the Depression. "Brokers were jumping out of windows in droves. We were de- lighted. We didn't have to be kept any more. Women went out lo work. And that was the end of the kept girl. "What shows the true nobility of our sex is lhat although there were all those headlines about brokers jumping out of windows you never saw one headline which said 'Kepi Girl Jumps From Love-nest.' A few years afler the Depres- sion, she says, American women got hold of Uie country's wealth. "They did il by becoming wid- ows. They killed off the .men who had Ihe money. They killed thorn off by aggravation." J 710 5 AVE [LETHftRlDCE-AlTA I ONLY 2 DAYS LEFT! REVELSTOKE SALE ENDS THIS SAT.!
