Newlyweds keep happy shouting HUNTINGTON, W. Va. (AP) Leon and Paula Drummer are young nevylyweds, but all they ever do is shout at each other. The problem is one of dis- tance rather than temperament. Leon is a prisoner at the Cabell County jail and has been ever since he and his wife were married Aug. 16 in a behind-bars ceremony. Every morning since then, Paula, 21, has made the six- block walk from her apart- ment to the jail, showing up at a.m. sharp. She usually brings a pack of cigarettes for herself and money for a pack for Leon. After taking the money in- side and giving it to the jailer, she comes back out and stands looking up at Leon's third- floor cell window. Then the dialogue begins. "Hey she yells if she's in a happy mood If not, it's "Hey Leeeeeeeeon." "Sometimes he answers me and sometimes not." she said. "I never know how much we'll get to talk, or if we'll get to talk at all Sometimes the deputies come out and chase me away. If they let me, I usually stay until' after dark, except to go home for something to eat or have a job interview." Leon's visiting hours are from 1pm to 3 p m. on Wednesday, but even then he and Paula are separated by a glass panel and must talk through a microphone, "You still have to she said "It's so noisy in the visitors' room with those other wives and girlfriends all talking at once Paula says about five other women corne regularly to the jail and stand in the parking lot. shouting up at their men. Although some nearby residents complain, the coun- ty has a good-hearted sheriff who winks at the situation as long as the women stay reasonably quiet and don't try to slip anything through the wire fence surrounding the jail. Leon, 23, is in jail for proba- tion violation after a breaking and entering conviction He has been incarcerated since mid-July awaiting a hearing "We don't know when he'll have a hearing or get out." said Paula "So I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't talk to him like this. We talk about everything TV programs we've both seen the night before, our problems, anything. "It feels funny to stand out here in broad daylight yelling about your problems, but it's better than nothing 26. 1973 LETHBRIDGE HERALD China key to price of Kimonos TOYKO (Reuter) China, treasure house for the "silk road" in ancient times, now holds the key to the price of kimonos for millions of Japanese women This is shown by the sen- sitivity of the Japanese silk market, where prices boomed for much of this year, to reports of possible changes in Chinese raw silk prices The market declined sharp- ly in August following rumors that there might be a reduc- tion in the Chinese price. Before the Second World War Japan used to export 000 bales of raw silk a year, mainly to the United States After the war man-made fibres monopolized the market for stockings and other previously silken goods, but silk continues to rje used for kimonos. Affluence has made Japan by far the largest consumer of silk in the world. Expensive kimonos have become a must for Japanese women at wedding parties, school graduation ceremonies, coming-of-age celebrations, and similar events On the other hand, silk production in Japan has declined because industrial products have replaced silk as foreign exchange earners. Japan still produces slightly more than bales of raw silk a year of (he world's total output of bales. But her silk consumption amounts to bales, including bales for kimono weaving Big Savings On All Your Needs! LADIES GIRLS WEAR BUYS! Misses Short Sleeve Nylon Tops MEWS BOYS WEAR DISCOUNTS! Navy.
