Here's How To Make Old Out Of The New f . M,...,. ,, , '1 - "-?"o. n ' ... . J a ; , APPLYING THE PRINT The most difficuit part of the process is thinning the chosen print enough to glue It to the wood. Pictures from old magazines and newspapers or original drawings may be used. Mrs. Lyd-ia Anderson (right), one of the instructors, is showing Mrs. Noble War- -ner how to glue the print to the wood. Staff Photos By ARNOLD ERNEST THE FINISHED PRODUCT Looking amazingly like antique wood prints, these wood plaques produced by students and instructors, Mrs. Elizabeth Kobusch (left) and Mrs. Lydia Anderson, would be proud additions to anyone's collection. Mrs. Kobusch and Sirs. Anderson formulated the technique for "antiquing" the wood before applying the print. All of the classes at the Howard Park Recreation Center are workshop sessions and after learning the technique, many students start businesses of their own. The Smart Set Could A Family Spat Bring On Wedding Bells? By SUZY Marina Doria, the Italian bakery goods heiress, is in New York at the Blackstone Hotel. She looks fit as a champion water skier which is what she is, or used to be. For years now, Marina has been the steady girl friend of Crown Prince Victor Emanuel of the House of Savoy. The friendship never had the blessing of Victor Emanuel's daddy, ex-King Humbert of Italy, because Marina is a commoner (shudder-shudder) and dedicated crown princes, no matter how remote the throne, are not supposed to get mixed up in That Sort of Thing. Recently the king and his son had a big flareup (more about that in another column) and now some people think the prince will throw caution to the winds and marry Marina. Can't you see them water skiing down life's highway together? At least they'll never run out of cookies and cake. The Italians are gossiping Club To Sponsor Driving Program BOYNTON BEACH - The .

The Tueaday night pro-grama will be open to all interested persons. about a rather exotio foursome you may find going out on the town together these Roman nights. It involves the young Greek king and queen, Constantlne and Anne-Marie, and Don Marco Torlonla, grandson of King Alfonso Xm, and his little redheaded friend, Philippa de Nanteuil. (Philippa will be remembered as the former fiancee of Dino Pecci-Bunt until Don Marco moved in.) The turnout at Madison Square Garden for Maharishi, the guru of the movement, was more flower people than beautiful people. However, some of the BP drinking in Mahari-shi's message included fashion editors Diana Vreeland and Margaret Case, Count Lanfranco Hasponi with that top London and New York hostess, Mrs. Douglas Fair-hanks, and Tonlo Selwart, a famous matinee idol from the days when there were such things. Not one of them wore love heads. That's something they'll have to meditate over. Wallher Morelra-Salles, the Brazilian banker, and his beautiful best-dressed wile, Elizlnha, spun Into town for one day and spun right out again to spend a day with, the Henry Fords In Detroit Then It was a day with the Nelson Rockefellers In Albany and off to Nassau for a bit, then back to Brazil for a month and then off to Paris. Don't Just stand there. They're still talking about how madly gay it was in Biarritz over the holidays with the Windsors there and all. The duke and duchess stopped at Larraldia, that divine country inn several miles outside Biarritz, but they motored in every day so the duke could play golf and the duchess could see her friends. The Windsors spent part of New Year's Eve with Aimee and Roddy de. Heeren of New York and Palm Beaeh, and they dined with Mrs, R.

PETERSBURG (AP)-Chlldren't thumb sucking, which has been a source of irration for parents through the ages, gradually is losing its popularity with the young set. It is being replaced by outward behavior symptoms such actions as underachieving at school, stealing or refusing to help and Rhare responsibilities at home. In other words, today's youngster is more apt to express his emotional conflicts in behavior patterns rather than through physical or organic manifestations. These are the observation of both Dr. Waiter White and Dr. Jerome Rosenhlum. Dr. White la director and Dr. Rosenheim Is chief clinical psychologist nt the Pinellas f onn-ty Child Guidance Clinic, where 229 emotionally dls-turned children are currently undergoing treatment. One reason for this change in behavior patterns, suggests Dr. White, could be the switch our society has been undergoing toward more mobility coupled with an accelerated pace of living. Children today, both doctors say, are exposed to more violence on television, in the movies and In the news. Psychiatrists and clinical psychologists are looking more and more into a child's total environment for answers to his emotional problems. How can the child headed for emotional problems be recognized? Usually he will display several immature symptoms or a "cluster" of anti-social characteristics. ' For Instance, explain both men, a child that persistently and frequently displays antisocial characteristics Is build ' " . ': I'M ' I DISTRESSING THE MOOD After the wood has been beveled and sanded, the next step is a process known as "distressing" the wood, which consists of pounding the surface with bent nail, spikes, hatchets or dog chains. Mrs. Lamar Harmon is pictured hammering a dog chain into the wood which, will give it an old worm eaten appearance. ing a pattern that will lead to serious problems. Temper tantrums are normal In a small child but not in a teen ager or adult. When this problem is displayed along with a "cluster" of other undesirable habits (bedwet-ting. thumb sucking, stealing, etc.), then the youngster is heading for emotional troubles. Both doctors point out, however, that the "cluster" of antisocial characteristics must appear with persistence and frequency to be significant signals of a mental breakdown. , Most emotional problems are created by the entire family. There are some, however, with strictly physiological roots. Dr. White estimates about 10 per cent of the youngsters now undergoing treatment at the g u 1 d a n c e center have emotional problems attributable strictly to physical defects. For instance the child with an eye detect or hearing impairment oftentimes goes undetected unless specialized tests are administered. Allergies, too, Dr. White points out. "are not 100 per cent emotional." There is some underlying physical reason, he says, for hives, asthma, hay fever, and eczema. A physical defect just as feeling of defeat or Inadequacy ("Everyone," Dr. Wlilte contends, "must have certain amount of success It Is necessary for a per-itn'i emotional well-being and children ' are no exception.") can perpetuate a pattern of unworl Illness or defeat. Larking a feeling of worth or self respect, a child be-comes frustrated and the emotional pattern unravels, oftentimes developing Into tiie "cluster" of anti-social behavior characteristics. He thinks of himself as inadequate so he acts out his inadequacy by underachieving which leads to frustrations and being treated by his peers as an Inadequate person the vicious circle forms and the pattern eventu-ally emotionally cripples him. i t !"- MRS. HARRIET BOSWELL Believes ancient city of Atlantis close to West Palm Beach. '"'!IIffl!H!lIlllliillllB!llll!l!!li:il!ll!,a Is The Legend Of Atlantis Myth, Reality? By DIEDRA VAN DUZEE Staff Writer Atlantis a myth or a reality? Present day believers in the legend recorded by Plato say that opposite the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea a large Island existed which was the remnant of an Atlantic continent populated by a civilized people. To many, the mention of Atlantis connotes sunken ships and vast treasure hoards. According to Harriet Boswell, director of the Aquarian Re-search Center, the only diving around Atlantis has been for treasure, The Aquarian Research Center is interested in the legend not the treasure and is sponsoring an expedition to study Atlantis. Dr. J. Manson Valentine is directing the expedition which leaves from Fort Lauderdale Friday. Dr. Valentine formerly taught at Wewtern Reserve University, University of North Carolina, worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture and was curator of the Alabama Museum of Natural History. He has been on expeditions all over the world and Is a member of the Explorer's Club "a truly great man and a true believer In the reality orAtlantls," Mrs. Boswell commented. On Dec. 17 a plane was chartered and aerial photographs were taken on the east side of the Bahama Islands, by members of the expedition crew, she said. One Atlantean authority believes Bimlnl was the highest mountain on the continent. "Patterns on the ocean floor appeared in the pictures and their conformations indicated 'm"Sm!lm!...l :.,fn J The ralm Beach Post, Thursday Jan. 23, 1DC8 Bl Mind Your Own Business What Should Family Of Four Spend For Food? By PAT Ml'RPIIY DEAR PAT MURPHY: We are a family of four. My husband, myself and our two boys in grade school. We aren't rich but we certainly aren't poor either. But my husband Insists on only allowing $40.00 a week for groceries in our budget. And I Just can't do it on that. I try. But it never works out. I think it is an unrealistical- they were man made. One Is in the shape of a pentagon and they have also seen what seems to be the ruin of a wall with windows," she continued. According to the book "Atlantis the Antediluvian World", by Ignacious Donnelly, the original Atlantean researcher, Atlantis was the region where man first rose from the state of barbarism to civilization. Atlantis existed approximately 25,000 years ago but its Inhabitants already knew of the magnet and gunpowder. He claims colonists from this nation went to the Gulf of Mexico, to the Mississippi, the Amazon, the Pacilio coast of South America, the Mediterranean, the west coast of Europe and Africa, the Baltic and the Middle East. The oldest colony formed by the Allan-teans was Egypt. "Personally I believe it was a tremendous continent," Mrs. Boswell said. "Many believe the continent must have stretched from Greece to Peru. Last summer evidences of Atlantean artifacts were discovered in both countries." Moreover, without Atlantis, she explained, 25 centuries ago there could have been no communication between Greece and Peru yet there are cultural similarities. "So many leg-. ends and beliefs are similar. Although the people and places are different the meat of the legend is the same." According to Mi's. Boswell, a cataclysmic occurrence broke the continent apart. "It was a sudden thing like an earthquake or a volcano." Donnelly writes, "Atlantis perished In a terrible convul-sion of nature in which the Island was submerged by the ocean with nearly all its inhabitants." "Although It sounds Incredible, we know that great land masse have appeared and disappeared," Mrs. Boswell said. According to Donnelly, all the continents were once underwater and the earth surface Is a record of successive risings and fallings of the land. He described an occurrence In 1831 when an Island In tin Mediterranean came up wllh an earthquake. In a month the Island was two hundred feet high anil three miles In circumference but It soon sunk beneath the waves. For every Idea there is an opposing Idea, however. In this case, the continental drift theory. "If that is true, Atlantis can't be," Mrs. Boswell said. The continental drift theory postulates that at one time the continents were close together and have been gradually drifting apart. Those interested In the unknown have been stimulated by Atlantis, she said. "The legpnd offers an opportunity to find the truth of things. "I think the continent covered an area, south of a line somewhere near West Palm Bpach, how far south is unknown," she said. Hie expedition will confine Its studies to the area around the Bahama Islands and perhaps Latin America. "I don't think we need go that far afield, however, we are hopeful we will come up with something valuable right hers," . nan P p 1 n ly low figure and I wonder what you think? MRS. R. B. DEAR SIRS. R.B.: I'm sorry but I can't agree with you, unless, of course, your tastes run to Imported gourmet foods and prepared luxury.type frozen foods. My own experience runs contrary to yours. But perhaps more relevant are the results of a recent project conducted by the Kip-linger people, In which they proved conclusively that wilh careful shopping a family of four could eat very nicely Indeed from both the nutri-tltional and appetizing points-of-vlew on $.15.00 a week. The secret is careful shop-ping, careful meal planning and the avoidance of potnt-ot-purchase splurges. DEAR PAT Ml RPIIY: I'm writing for my Investment rluh. We would like to know what. In your view, would be the best kinds of stocks to have m order to benefit from peace in Vietnam. The stocks that our club has now arc heavily oriented to defense, aero-space and electronics, although we have some Seais stocks, too. We have good profits in nearly all and want to take these and reinvest In stocks that would benefit from a peacetime economy. Please don't tell us that peace in the near future is far from certain. We've made up out minds to bet that it will come in 1968 and we Just want to know how to invest. MEIS. OKW, JR. DEAR MRS. OKW: I'm Impressed by your collective willingness to put your money where your hopes and and hearts are and by your apparent recognition that you are engaging In your own brand of speculation. I wish you good lurk. A number of securities analysts have addressed themselves to this question lately and the industry groups most often recommended are: Building stocks, utility stocks, auto stocks, retail, apparel and textile stocks, bank stocks and insurance stocks. Conversely, the least liked groups are transportation, es-pescially selected airlines and railroads; aerospace and electronics, certain chemicals and outright munitions makers. Of course, there's the question of whether peace would be bullish or bearish. Most of the brokerage house research departments that we know have been busily developing arguments that peace would be bullish to such an extent that it almost sounds ltk whistling in the dark. It Is probably a very unpnp. ular view, but we are Inclined to believe that sudden peace. desirable as It Is would he at least temporarily bearish for the slock market. Specifically, we think It would take more time than many now think to shift this country's multlhllllon dollar gears in response to a sudden peace and that this would mean significant dislocations in the economy of perhaps as much as a year's duration. Thus we think that the stork market would slump sharply in response to peace and then take its time about making a meaningful recovery. Of course, we may not have much reason for worry. One astute Far Eastern expert whom we pay close attention to predicts that peace in Vietnam will creep up on us slowly which would mean that the wartime gears would grind to a slow halt, disrupting very little along the way. Ghont Who TulUn? CASSIGNY, France (WNS) Nobody wants to rent ths biggest house in town. The last tenants were able to break their lease because the place Is haunted by a boy with a cat's head, a man who knits and a beautiful lady In royal robes. The tenants did not object to the man and boy, who are always silent. According to them, the beautiful lady causes all the trouble because she won't stop talking. .I Sfc,Si iS. 4 ..Si 4 ttk iriiti iiiifjtt mit tA-t Hi iTtr r
