For one week, police will issue an official warning; after that there will be a $5 dollar fine. f ' rV xi-vcAV . ----- '4'' fjjjj Fat Cat, please contact Little Jewel in Big O collect same phone. Love Staff Photo by Mlko Ditmtr AT THE TOP OF YOUR By JOHN PETERSON Post Staff Writer Some waitresses, maids and others who serve Palm Beach, apparently will have to pay increased parking fines soon. The Palm Beach Police Depart- ment Friday began issuing warning tickets which will be replaced by real ones in a week to drivers parking their cars longer than two hours in the 300 and 400 blocks of Australian Avenue. The two-block stretch of pavement has been a customary parking area for employes of stores along prestigious Worth Avenue, three blocks south, and other establishments, workers said. Employes said they are left- with a choice for paying $5 tickets daily or trying to find space in private lots for fees ranging to $35 monthly. Kay Spaulding said she and 14 fellow employes at Angelinda's Restaurant on Worth Avenue will be affected by the parking crackdown. "I want to go to work," Mrs. Spaulding said. "Just tell me where to park. Do the people who live there want to work there? Don't they want West Palm Beach people coming over there?" The two-hour parking limitation on Australian Avenue and the 400 block of Chilean Avenue was ordered by the Town Council in August to create uniform parking conditions in Palm Beach, a Town Hall spokesman said. All the streets in the town will have a two-hour time limit now. Mrs. Spaulding said employes already try to pool rides and recognize that tourists need the parking spaces near Worth Avenue. She said she has considered taking a bus but can't find a route without a time-consuming transfer. "I can't learn to ride a motorcycle, I'm too old,'' she said. "If I could, I would. I don't like to gripe but I'm upset. If they're going to have working people, they're going to have to have a place for them to park." Capt. James Morton of the Palm Beach Police Department said that $5 parking tickets stuck on cars in the Australian Avenue area Friday were a mistake. "We're making that a warning ," Morton said. "For one week (until Dec. 20), they'll be warnings, after that, they'll be reall." "I don't have a solution," Morton added. "They're just going to have to find a proper place to park."

Prince Peter, the grandson of Prince William of Denmark, who became King George I of Greece in 1863, is a member of the royal family in two'countries, Greece and Denmark, but with Greece now a republic and Denmark a socialist democracy, the Prince says his daily life "is just like anyone else's." He is president of a " bank in Copenhagen, where he lives on the outskirts of the city in a "not very large two bedroom house with a guest cottage." The house once belonged to his great-grandfather, King Christian IX of Denmark. One of the greatest privileges of his royal rank is having time to research anthropology, said the prince, who earned his doctorate in the subject at the University of London 15 years ago when he was 53. His studies have carried him to Asia, India, Pakistan, Persia and Tibet, where he became fascinated with the custom of polyandry partially, he said, because it was so contrary to customs in Denmark. Working in India for nearly a decade for the National Museum of Denmark and befriending the Dalai Lama, Prince Peter was able to gain insight into the form of marriage practiced by the Todas of Southern India, and other peoples scattered throughout the eastern hemisphere. Polyandry is less popular than the other form of polygamy, in which a husband may have more than one wife. Polygamy is the form of marriage practiced by the Mormons and is widespread in the Moslem world, where a husband may have four wives. In Tibet, polyandry was outlawed by the Chinese who considered it "incestuous and immoral", and people found practicing the old custom today are executed, Prince Peter said. By DEE WHITTINGTON Post Staff Writer BOCA RATON - Women: Remember that cute kid down the block, the one with the big, blue eyes and the awful little brother with the runny nose who tagged along everywhere you went? Well, if you lived in Nigeria or Sri Lanka (or Tibet before the Chinese takeover) and wanted to marry Blue Eyes, you'd have to take little Bobby and the rest of his brothers, too. For those are some of the lands where the world's least-practiced form of marriage exists, polyandry. And it is a far cry from the ideal marriage from a woman's point of view, according to anthropologist Prince Peter of Denmark. In town recently to address a group of students at Florida Atlantic University, the prince discussed polyandry and, in particular, how it was practiced in Tibet prior to 1950. Polyandry, he said, is an arrangement based not on love, but on property rights and power. "One of the brothers chooses a wife and brings her 'home, and the rest of the brothers (usually three or four) accept her," he said. It is a means of keeping the family property together, and, in turn, the family's power. For the wife, however, it means service to many masters. In routine work, she receives the aid pf her mother-in-law and any other women living in the family compound, such as an unwed sister. Only in royal families is the woman granted the privilege of rejecting her future husbands, and even then, Prince Peter said, she may not nave the final word. Polyandry is practiced in patriarchal societies where land is inherited and owned by sons only. The woman's responsibility is to bear and raise the children, according to Prince Peter, who noted polyandry Vftl 5onla At Your Starttt Start Sears dSFrHMMJ Major Dtpartmtnt GREAT GIFTS!
