THE FAMILY CIRCUS By Bil Keane "Well, will you get the crayons for me as now as you can?" May have to settle for brass rings this year WASHINGTON (UPI) - A note to Christmas shoppers: the tab for the "true love's" Christmas gifts of the partridge in a pear tree, the turtle doves, the French hens, and all the rest would be close to $45,000 this year. "Everybody's Money," a publication of the Credit Union National Association, tallied the tab. The figure is four times what it was the last time the group added up the costs 13 years ago. The tab: One pear tree, ?14. One partridge, $15. Two turtle doves, $10. Three French hens, $36. Four calling birds, $140. Five gold rings (14K) $1,000. Six geese a-laying, $60. Seven swans a-swimming. $1,260. Eight maids a-milking, $216.32 (for an eight-hour day at the average farm wage rate of $3.38 an hour). Nine ladies dancing, $6,000 (for a "moderately priced" all-female dance company). Ten lords a-leaping, $1,260 (tuition for 10 youngsters at gymnastics school for 16 weeks). Eleven pipers piping, $145.20 an hour (union scale is $11 an hour, plus a 20 percent differential for the chief piper.) Twelve drummers drumming, $158.40. That totals $10,314.92. But the song, of course, celebrates an excess of generosity — not one pair of turtle doves but 11 and so on. By the 12th day of Christmas, the bill jumps to $44,848.40, the group said. Burglars exit with a bang MIDLAND, Texas (UPI) — Like the daring duo from the 1969 movie "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," burglars apparently had trouble gauging how much explosive was needed to open the safe in a fast food chain restaurant. In the popular western tale, Butch and Sundance dynamited a train's safe into oblivion. A similar, real-life attempt by burglars early Monday caused about $75,000 in damages to a restaurant and left "little bits" of cash strewn about the burned-out restaurant's interior. Police said the burglars used as much as 10 times the amount of plastic explosive needed to open the safe.

I27-W37 CYOers to converge on Salina for yearly diocesan meeting Several hundred young persons from throughout the Salina Catholic diocese will be in Salina this weekend for the annual diocesan convention of the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) at the Hilton Inn. The two-day convention convenes Saturday and continues Sunday. According to the Rev. Bill Surmeier, New Altnelo, CYO director, the convention theme is "U are NEATed" and sessions will hear speakers on such topics as "Self," "Family," "Friends" and "Church." Election of new officers will be held. Wednesday, November 18,1981 — The Salina Journal Page 19 SHS suspends 20 students Salina High School South is suspending 20 students for having alcohol during a school-sponsored trip to Topeka early last week. The students were attending a Model Legislature program Nov. 8-10, when sponsors discovered that some of them were drinking, school officials said Wednesday. When the group returned to Salina, the school's principal checked into the matter before suspending anyone, according to Steve Mulvenon, coordinator of public information for UD305. The students are being suspended for three days, starting Wednesday. "I wanted to be sure of the facts before I proceeded," Harold Vopat, the principal, said. "Primarily, I felt that the district policy must be enforced. I don't feel that it gave me any leeway." "The district policy is pretty clear- cut," Mulvenon said."It simply states that when students are caught, either under the influence of, or in possession of alcohol, they are suspended." Other schools with students attending the conference had problems with vandalism as well. However, the group from South has been cleared of any in- volvment in those acts, Vopat said. Each student who was suspended admitted participating in drinking, Vopat said. He added they showed considerable remorse. While Vopat said it is the Board of Education's decision regarding the number of sponsors necessary for a trip, he recommends taking more sponsors on overnight trips. There were two sponsors and 27 students on this trip. "This will certainly affect the way we look at overnight trips," he added. Although Vopat expressed satisfaction with the parents' cooperation, he said the whole community should be concerned. "When you have a group of kids, not one 18 (years of age), and they can obtain alcohol, it is a community problem," he said. "The parents didn't buy it for them, and they brought it from Salina."
