STIMULATES FANTASY Mrs. Levete has started working with a painter and a musician to see how these arts might be combined with her therapy to enlarge the horizons of the older handi- capped child. She is con- stantly amazed by the chil- dren's imaginative finding four the best age to start working with them. act out fantasies they couldn't possibly accomplish in real she says. One Irish boy acted out a chase in Belfast as an Irish Republican Army gunman shooting down the police. A spina bifida con- demned to spend his whole life on his back with arms and legs stiffly was given a fan as an improvisation exer- cise. Although he could make only small it was clear from the way his eyes switched back and forth that he was absorbed in an im- aginary tennis using the fan as a racket. In 1972 Mrs. Levete was given a travelling fellowship from the memorial trust set up honor the late Sir Win- ston Churchill. She used it to improve her mime technique in world centre of the art. At the Sorbonne she found modern dance being taught by a former Martha Graham pupil to psychiatrists as part of their idea she would like to translate to Brit- ain. But she says with a grin that the word is thought terribly frivolous by British authorities. With her grant from the Leverhulme she plans workshop sessions to enable other therapists work- ing with handicapped children to learn aspects of her tech- nique which may be useful to them. She also has em- barked on compiling a co- ordinated register of all ar- tistic activity going on with handicapped children.

Dear Ann I was married at 16. My mother gave me a beautiful tea set. Within three weeks I realized my marriage was a mistake and we were divorced. I am now married to a wonderful man. Our oldest child is age 6. Yesterday Jon was in the kitchen and asking a million questions. At this particular stage he is interested in how old I was when this happened and when that happened. Jon asked where I got the tea set. When I told him my mother had given it to me for a wedding he wanted to know how old I was when I got married. I decided it was a good time to tell him I was married to another men when I was 16 and later I met and married his daddy and how lucky I THE BETTER HALF was. He didn't seem to mind. The next minute he was ask- ing how old I was when I bought the wallpaper. That night I told my bus- band about our conversation. He called me an idiot said Jon was too young to under- stand. I've never seen him so furious. You always advise parents to tell the truth. Was I Dee IB The DofhMse Dear It's always best to give children straight answers.

By Barnes my paycheck What did you spend it Activist magazine promotes change OSLO A new ac- tivist women's magazine is being snatched from the news .stands by the thousands in where women's rights advocates' say the women's movement has been slow in getting off the ground. Launched in September as an experiment by one of the country's leading book pub- lishing the first edi- tion of Sirene consisted of only copies. Four reprints were and a total of copies were sold from the stands in a few weeks. The second recently published in another has been just as suc- cessful. The six women who encour- aged the Cappelen publishing house to publish the magazine now are its editorial staff. Its they is to change basic social conditions of women in Norway. They say women are dis- criminated against in employ- ment political life and many other areas.

The first issue had an inter- view with Scandinavian actress Liv Ullmann as the cover story. Its The suppressed Liv Ullmann. Cappelen has guaranteed continued operation of Sirene. Regularly scheduled publication will begin in with eight issues planned. The magazine's apparent success comes at a time when several Norwegian periodicals have gone out of business and attempts to launch new ones have failed. Bitten the magazine's says the staff is looking into the possibility of expanding into the Swedish and Danish markets. Staff members said they considered Sirene as an alter- native and competitor to the conventional type of women's which they feel are fundamentally reac- tionary in their attitude to the women's movement. Norway was of the first countries in the world to in- troduce universal suffrage for women-in 1913. But the staff of the magazine and other Norwegian women's activists say the country has been much too slow in following up on that pioneer measure. frM UN Fur dram if tte Shop Value Vlllaga CHEESE CHERRY HILL Brick OM WlMd Medium Old Colored OM MIM Extra OM Rat Trap MOMiC Marble OM Oxford OM Centre Cut Wined Centre Cut Mozzarella Smoked Wispride Cheddar with Port Gift Pakt Musnroom Emmental Camembert Blue Chive Smoked Caraway Samroe Danish Steppe Wensleydale Danish Mynster Scotch Dunlop Oka Type Danish Taffel Danish Tilsit Port Salut j Stilton Glouchester 3 Norwegian Goat Garlic Cream Herb and Spice Creamy Frico Goudas Midget Goudas Edams Danish Brie Danish Camembert Gerard French Camembert Gerard French Brie Baden Limburger Ski Queen Gjetosh Alba Cream Swiss Fondue Danish Esrom Danish Blue SLACK DIAMOND CH CHESHIRE WENSLEYDALE GLOUCESTER FRENCH ONION WINE CURED BEER CURED HICKORY SMOKED 0 CAERPHILLY MEDIUM AND MILD CRACKER BARREL IMPORTED GIFT PAK I CHEESE TRAYS CHEESE TRAYS PREPARED ON REQUEST FANCY IMPORTED ASSORTED CROUTONS GATO IRISH FRUIT AND CHERRY CAKE GOBLIN TREACLE SPONGE PUDDINGS 11 oz. tint MACADAMIA NUTS GOLDWELL ENGLISH SPARKLING GINGER WINE SANTY'S WHITE SPARKLING GRAPE JUICE IDRIS SQUASH OR LIME RIBENA BLACK CURRENT JUICE IRISH WHISKEY MARMALADE GATO IRISH WHISKEY FRUIT CAKES REGINA COOKING BURGUNDY 9 REGINA COOKING SAUTERNE SNAILS LIQUEUR FILLED CHOCOLATES CERAMIC HONEY FILLED BEES CERAMIC STRAWBERRIES CERAMIC GRAPE CLUSTERS LAWRErS TACO SHELLS ELPASO TORTILLAS GARBANZO BEANS R AND W SCOTT DIETETIC JAMS CROS8E AND BLACKWELL MINCEMEAT IMPORTED AND CANADIAN MADE CHOCOLATES ;
