Originally a pet, he has been released to be free to come and go and spends much of his time in the woods. Parent Siamese cats, Mini Cat and Coochu produced, at Easter­ time, five offspring, which are in the special protective custody of' Emerson Boozer, who guards them on the living room floor. Tom is a handsome alley cat, who once found his way home after being lost for three months. Asked why they own boa constrictors, Phyllis explains that she bought them to teach her students not to fear snakes, “but the teachers were worse than the students.” Mini Snake was purchased when it was 12 inches long, but now is of maxi size. Francis Jeremiah Alabaster is a “nice snake, less aggressive,” according according to his owners. Kept in an upstairs aquarium, they are fed the white rats, which the Watsons Watsons raise for that purpose. Will there be more inhabitants of the private zoo? “Oh, yes,” says Phyllis. “We’re going to get a miniature burro and a goat. And if the land were ours, we’d build facilities so we could have horses.” Both enjoy riding. This summer the couple plans to go backpack camping. During their absence, the care and feeding of the animals will be up to Ralph’s parents, Col. and Mrs. Ralph Watson of La Crosse. They themselves have a rabbit, two dogs, a cat, a guinea pig, a cockatiel and goldfish, so the love of animals is a family trait. There are problems, of course. Feeding takes time and money; getting them all to a vet for shots is a problem in transportation; Raspy gets into Phyllis’ thread when she is sewing; ducks pull sheets off the line; and there are other forms of mayhem and mischief. Julie has tried to eat the fish, and the snakes have tried to eat a cat. But mostly this animal kingdom is a peaceable kingdom, in which the subjects return the love with which they are ruled. Charlie Monkey Business On The Clothesline Mini Snake Grew To Maxi Size Happy Mother’s Day By JOY STILLEY AP Newsfeatures Writer DEAR MOM: You may think that pot is a vessel for cooking; That grass is a green area just meant for looking; That hash is a remake of last night’s viands; That a trip is a voyage to faraway lands; You’re convinced that dough is stuff made with flour; That bread is to eat, not pay for work by the hour; That fuzz is a substance you find on the rug; That when you’re called “straight” you are getting a plug; Your bag, you believe, is for bringing home bacon; In all these definitions you will find you’re mistaken. But there is one phrase that still means what it did: “Happy Mother’s Day and Love” from your with-it kid.

She was “The Happy Hooker” Hooker” and she has recently written written a book by that name about her life as a prostitute and ma- dame. And she also testified before the Knapp Commission which was investigating police corruption in New York City. In her roomy penthouse apartment here, where lights shine from behind plastic plants, where the mirror behind a plush red sofa reflects an equally plush red bar, and where the phone rings constantly, constantly, Miss Hollander played with her pet dog, a beagle named Bagel, and talked about her career. She said that although although she is retired now, she still thinks prostitution should be legalized. “If handled in a sophisticated way, prostitution is a victimless victimless crime,” she says, leaning back in the sofa and kicking off her shoes. “It Open House Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Gordon Sr., 1230 Pine St., will be honored on their 25th wedding anniversary Sunday.

Statistics have shown that sex crimes go down when there is legalized prostitution. “If you would make it legal, it would help eliminate police* corruption,” she goes on. “I gave thousands of dollars to pay off policemen. I would rather have prostitution be legal legal and pay high taxes.” Miss Hollander advocates setting up medically and legally controlled brothels, which she says will eliminate street walkers. And since the street walkers generally have pimps, she says that will also Stanley York To Speak At GOP Luncheon The La Crosse County Republican Women will have a luncheon at 1 p.m. Friday, May 19, in Maple Grove Country Club.

A lot of street hookers hookers are just plain runaways,” she adds. “They don’t necessarily necessarily come from bad families.” families.” Miss Hollander herself was born in Indonesia of a Dutch doctor father and a German- French mother. She was educated educated in Europe and says she speaks seven languages. Originally, Originally, she came to the United States to be married, but the engagement did not work out, and she says she became first a Stanley York call girl and then a madame. She has had to change apartments apartments eight times in two and a half years, has been arrested “three or four times” and there was a possibility she would be deported but she recently agreed to leave the country. She says she wrote her book, which has become a bestseller, at the instigation of a friend. “I thought it would be a good idea because a lot of people have misconceptions about prostitutes,” prostitutes,” she says. “And I think it’s been successful because of curiosity.” Though Miss Hollander thinks prostitution will be legalized here eventually, she doesn’t believe her profession will ever be respectable. But, she adds quickly, “I loved every bit of what I did. My mother found out—that’s my only regret.” Recently she’s been lecturing lecturing on college campuses, and she says there’s another book in the offing. And as for marriage— “I’d like to get married someday,” she says. “But I’m a lot more choosey now.” Open House Mr. and Mrs. Howard Willenberg will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary with open house from 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday, May 21 in their home, 2720 Ward Ave. TREMPEALEAU COUNTY MENTAL HEALTH ASSOCIATION presents WORRY CLINIC TUESDAY, MAY 16, 7 PM.
