Fourteen - Blythevllte (Art.) Cburief Km - OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - She's a bright-eyed blonde with a wiia »nd wonderful Watusi? In the kitchen she's a regular Mary Margaret McBride? . Break it to her gently, boy. She's not for you. The way to pick a wife is the way J. Edgar Hoover picks a G- man. Find a girl who's an accountant or an attorney. " A wife should be a. helpmate. Think you need help in the kitchen? Not with television dinners, not with cakes that come In boxes, not with electric dishwashers you don't. A married man's problem is not food. It's his bank account, his income tax, his hospitalization insurance, his time p ay- inents. It's not the chick's figure you should be interested in — it's the way she figures. The emphasis is on the fiscal, not the physical. Right at the beginning you 11 heed one of those big beer coolers the girls call refrigerators. Is it cheaper to pay $3.37 a week en a time payment contract the credit department shoves at you, or should you borrow the money from your , company credit union at one per cent a month? Cash? What's that? A bright girl with an abacus In her purse can give you the straight pitch before you have time to make your first big mistake. Cuban Airlift Costs Nearly $10 Million Marriage is the sound institution it is today because we pro- ect ourselves against unforeseen emergencies with things like major medical insurance. All that is required from the nsured is a payroll deduction, a >ig filing cabinet, and a clever bookkeeper with plenty of time to keep records, correspond with the medical and dental professions, and make a few Irigonometric computations. There's also hospital insurance, surgical insurance, accident insurance, mortgage, fire and wind insurance on your house, liability insurance, insurance covering repairs to the television set and washing ma- chin, five kinds of car insur- anc, camera insurance, and life insurance on everybody including the dog. In early . spring comes the Form HO. You've finally saved a buck and invested it - wisely, if you listened to a wife who has had time to digest brokers' reports and pour over the financial pages every day. Now you discover Schedule D. Do you have a long-term capital loss carry over from preceding taxable years? Or a gain from disposition of depreciable property under sections 1245 and 1250? If you played your cards right in the beginning, you can be playing pool while your wife works this all out. It's true the supply of lady lawyers and accountants available for marriage is limited. But there are alternatives. For instance, a girl who can repair electrical appliances will save you a mint. Or you can fall back on the classic solution. Marry a rich widow. ' By THEODORE A. EDIGER ; MIAMI, Fla. (AP)-The airlift from Cuba, six months old itoday, has brought nearly 25,000 •voluntary exiles to the United States. It has cost American ^taxpayers nearly $10 million. Almost unnoticed, Cubans arrive at the rate of 1,000 weekly. Nearly two-thirds of them fly on ; to other U.S. cities to start life anew. The others join the Miami exile colony of more than 100,000. Attractive Angela Benitez Es- caluna, 36, waiting at Freedom House, where refugees live until their resettlement airplane comes, said she would join two ions, 17 and 14, in New York. "1 haven't seen them in four years," said the mother, cradling another son, 4 months old. in her arms. "I sent them to the United States so they would not become Communists. I was going to follow, and then flights from Cuba stopped." There has been no U.S.-Cuban commercial airline traffic since the 1962 missile crisis. :Mrs. Escaluna said her husband had remained in Cuba "so he wouldn't lose his job while he had to support the baby, but we hope to get him here." Cubans usually are fired after they ask to leave the country and often must wait a long time for their turn to leave, refugees report. When Cubans depart, they must leave behind all belongings. ; Also at bustling Freedom House, Zaida del Toro, 7% months pregnant, beamed: "My child will be an American citizen." 'With her were her husband, Reinaldo, 42, and their three sons, 6, 7 and 13. The family headed for New York, where relatives live. Del Toro's explanation of why he had left Cuba was typical of the refugee stream: "We didn't want our children to become Communists. There is no freedom in Cuba. Also, there isn't much to eat. Except for three- fourths pound of meat a week, we had been living mostly on tweet potatoes and peas." VU.S. officials estimated the airlift had cost at nearly ?400 per exile. This includes chartering the plane and getting the newcomers settled. Normally there are two flights each week day.

BADSHER ERYEVAN, Soviet Armenia (AP)—The Araks Cafe has the reputation of being the swirig- inest place in town. 'That's the place to go for music, dancing, things happening," a young Armenian advised. This night it was rather quiet, however. No band. Students with hair over the backs of their collars sat around talking. Out on the street corner, a group of youths wanted to know about the Beatles and other musical groups. "The Beatles are very popular here," because of foreign radio broadcasts, one student assured a foreigner. On the hill over the city four towers for radio jamming stand unused now but still available for any policy change on allowing foreign stations to be heard. Another student said they have their own six-man band for the kind of modern Western youth music that Soviet authorities frown upon. They call themselves Svetlyaky — the Glow Worms. "We have gangsters her," a student volunteered brightly. "Little ones, not like American ones. They sell opium from Taskent," in Soviet central Asia. Opium-rich poppies grow on the rugged hills around Yere- van, the capital of Soviet Armenia. The smallest republic in the Soviet Union, Armenia has 11,600 square miles and borders Turkey and Iran. Yerevan is a boom town, reflecting the industrialization of Armenia as part of Soviet economic development plans. With 643,000 residents, the city now has about a third of the republic's population. City planners are expecting a million residents by 1980. As in the rest of the Soviet Union, there is a housing shortage here. One young man reports a three-year wait for an apartment. Meanwhile he lives with his wife and baby in one room of his parents' small apartment. Remember Pay Your Paper Boy AIRPLANE SPRAYING SMALL GRAIN JOHN BRIGHT JO 4-2475 The Best In.
