Thurtdey, 16, Wl THE LfTHBRIDGE HERAID 19 Just Jude By JUDE TURIC SNOW bunny 1 am not, and chances are 1 never will be. Even though the winter 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. The 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 of the creamy crop of dashing male skiers to help her ride the tow, 1 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 out of the 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 hellbent-for-leather past me, raising powder and look- ing grand. What started out as a great descent, turns into an aristocratic tumble, and behold, out of the treeline. Blondes prefer gentlemen Nowadays women keep men says author HOLLYWOOD (Reuter) These days gentlemen no longer prefer blondes. It's the blondes who "keep" the gentlemen That is the finding of author Anita Loos whose classic tale of the flapper of the 1920s, Gentle- men Prefer Blondes, has been made into a play and a film. coming to baby blue's assistance, something tall, dark and handsome. OPPOSED TO WOMEN'S LIB Esther Vilor, author of the European best seller, The Manipulated Man, claims that men are trained and exploited by women. Shown here several months ago in London, Miss Vilor believes the American male is the most oppressed 'man in the western world. (AP Wirephoto) My own ran starts off 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 to be a sad sprawl of crossed skis, limbs, poles, assorted mitts, scarf and toque. Only the occasional chuckle and 'have 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 by admirers. Finally able to collect my thoughts, and walk like a human being minus the inflexible lead boots. I sink into oblivion and have flashbacks of each glorious fall; in technicolor. The day a lotal loss, but not a lesson learned. I'll be back, fear not. And someday I'll even ski. lA7o apparent complications from rare ovary transplant A I I calend ar o loca Fort Macleod square dancers wilt hold the regular dance Fri- elementary school.

The baby is due in March, and so far there are no complications. A report on the case was to be made today to the Brazil-Is- raeli Congress of Fertility and Sterility by Dr. Raul Blanco, head of the Argentine surgical learn that performed the trans- plant last 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- tered any treatment to prevent this possibility."

"Brokers were jumping out of windows in droves. We were de- lighted. We didn't have to be kept any more. Women went out to work. And that was the end of the kept girl. "What shows the true nobility of our sex is that although there were all those headlines about brokers jumping out of windows I you never saw one headline which said 'Kept Girl Jumps From Love-nest.'
