THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE 2, I960 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PAGE 17 DON SCHELLIE'S TUCSON Dog Bites Girl! Ha Ha Mrs. Rudy Wolfe, of 321 Pastime Rd., called to say her 11-year-old daughter, Pam, was bitten by a neighbor's dog the other night. "It was the funniest thing," she said. "Pam was next door playing on the backyard swing set," the-mother-explained. Seems Princess, the neighbor's Dalmatian, became excited and snapped at the girl. ·"" Mlind you, it was not at all serious, Mrs. Wolfe hastened to add. It didn't even break the skin. But Frank Fabian, who o w n s Princess, did the neighborly thing by visiting the Wolfes to make sure Pam was feeling all right. He stood on-the-front .porch talking with the mother. And apologizing. Koko, the Wolfe's "Heinz 57" pooch slipped oul- ·ide and--you guessed it--snapped at Fabian. But, again, Mrs. Wolfe added with a chuckle, hardly enough to raise a bruise. , . ... And »tooth fqri'tooth; Over Par r : In the wake of Memorial day comes these scratch- ings from Rev. D. S. Duricoinbe, of 7113 Luana PI. A three-day weekend-is'such fun for traveling near and far; Upon the nation's highway in every kind of car. Back home, the statisticians. have set a gloomy par; And note, each -hour, the scorecard of those who've: "crossed the bar:" It seems to me they would regret, if e'er the par were not : well met Penned by the reverend, he notes, in one of his more cynical moods, x Abe Lincoln Was Big, Too Figures supplied by the bulletin of the Tucson Retail Trade Bureau, as lifted from a report released by Applied Parking Techniques, Inc., show that the 1960 Lincoln is the longest thing on the road. Except, of course, for tracks and trailers. It measures in at 227 inches. ;i Widest of standard U. S. ^utos is the 1960 Ford, at 81.3 inches. The two biggest headaches for the people who apply parking techniques. "But bringing joy and gladness to the parking lot operator," quoth the bulletin, is the Lark with just 175 inches of length and the narrow Corvair, a mere 66.9 inches wide. The lot of the parking people is made even brighter by the wee foreign imports, which are not mentioned, but are there, just the same. Taking up even less space. :,_ ·IN GOOD HANDS' Missing Vanderbilt Girl Calls Mom From Germany Public Accounting Urged o ~ Of Congressional Junkets (Three Of Us--Ed.) With the University of Arizona's 75th anniversary year fast fading; : a newsman friend is bemoaning the fact that'he will'probably be the only person in the state NOT to receive a medallion of merit. That makes t w o o f us. - . ' . , , ' Poor Substitute The doorbell rang the other evening at our house. Our caller was a stranger of 3 or 4. Barely tall enough to reach the bell button. 'Even on tiptoes. . ""Hey," he demanded, "you got a "dog to play with?" Assuring him that we didn't, I was about to close the door. He frowned for a moment, deep in thought, "Well, then," he asked, "you got a kid?" SYDNEY HARRIS Aim Should Be Reader Interest If I were an advertiser with an industrial or technical product to sell, the pages of the magazine Scientific American would be my first choice. I speak as a subscriber, with absolutely no interest in the magazine except reading the articles every month. The reason is simple. Of all the publications I subscribe to, the Scientific American is the only one that doesn't badger me to renew my subscription. If I forget to do so, the magazine simply stops coming. There are no scare letters, no pleas, no sales promotion gimmicks. I am not offered 12 months for the price of 8i nor am I threatened with the loss of reading pleiiurftiif I discontinue the magazine. A reminder is enclosed in my final issue, and that is all. What is the significance of this? It means that when I renew my subscription, it is because I want to, because I feel the need to, without any external pressure. And it means, further, that the publication is read and respected by me--both the editorial content and the ads--and is not tossed aside casually with the daily "junk mail" when it arrives. I make this strenuous point not out of any special love for the publication--I have' never met a person DEAR MRS. MAYFIELD Copyright IBW What About Us Teen-Agers? DEAR MRS. MAYFIELD: Don't you realize that we teen-agers make up a large percentage of your readers? Why, then, don't you use more letters from us? Most of the time we feel frightfully left out. Get a go on, girl! TEN OF US TEENERS DEAR TEN OF YOU: Listen, dearies, it's true I do get a lot of letters from teenagers. But, by and large, the mass of my mail is from adults. However, if I used 10 per cent of the teen-ager problems, my column would be "exclusively yours." And don't you think we oldsters deserve a little consideration, too? I mean, we have problems, too! However, I do have in today's mail a particularly pertinent letter. So lend me your ears, honey. MOLLY MAYFIELD Married Student Influences Others DEAR MRS. MAYFIELD: We are a couple of teen-age girls (15) who go with wonderful fuys. They treat us with respect and consideration. Recently a friend of ours had a shotgun wedding to a boy in the senior class. Our school principal (rightly or wrongly) said he could finish his senior year and graduate. Perhaps that's well and good for his future--but what about our present? You see, he i* influencing the boys (not only our boy friends) with lome talk (lots of it) about his afterschool affairs with his wife. Some of the talk he tells them is pathetic, and «ome sickening. At least, it's certainly putting ideas into our boy friends' minds. Oh, they don't tell us all the details, but we glean a lot, and our boy friends are acting sort of different. In fact, this boy has had * terrible effect on the whole school. Maybe, Mrs. M., you'll think we're old-fashioned or something, txit we just don't like it We think that what goes on between a young married couple (of three weeks) $bouM be between them and not spread through practically the whole senior class. Are you with us? We hope so. TWO CONFUSED STUDENTS DEAR CONFUSED STUDENTS: I'm with you, but the person I feel sorry for is your principal. Let's take a photo lens view. The principal knew that a high ·chool dipkma would mean an enormous amount hi this young man's fiSare, Ke thought, perhaps wift regret, of the wife and fte child-to-be. He may have ftooght that this boy's career, established m a 1tigh school education, might make better citizens of me three right now involved. However, hi my book, he did not mink of fte isfteesce £is situation might have on the hundreds of this boy's fellow students. He 5d_not apparently arrive at the conclusion that to safeguard Sve JFriJfOTly w«s marc rmporntm than saving '(for the time being, ·nyway) flits t»e stadent My feefrng TS that yon students showM now try to s*fegaard jwarserves. Di» T t fisten to the yotmg man. In fact^ try to shww * 1 *i*Sfcrewce. CooM you pwsffade yowr boy friend* to * belonging to it--but to protest the fierce and frantic efforts of most other periodicals. They are competing madly-..for subscribers--but how much value is a subscriber who is bludgeoned, seduced or otherwise conned into taking the magazine? We are too fond of nose-counting in our society, without trying to evaluate the noses. A man who voluntarily reads a magazine, who goes out of his way to get it, is worth a dozen others who take it because they are too passive or too greedy to refuse it. The quality of readership is at least as important as the quantity. When Collier's died a few years ago, it had some 4 million readers--a staggering number. But the number alone did not help, because the readers did not care enough about the publication, which was artificially pumped up. It is the depth of interest, not just the breadth of readership, that determines the ultimate, value- of a communications medium. In mere" breadth, television beats all publications six ways from Tuesday, but neither the channels nor the programs command much listener loyalty. Until they do, TV will keep shouting into a void. 'this? They have a wonderful chance now to practice good taste and teach him what's poor taste. That poor principal! MOLLY MAYFIELD * * * HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Richard G. Darrow--Molly. * * » Office Dress Types A Girl DEAR MRS. MAYFIELD: I read those letters me other day from the bosses sounding off about their secretaries and the kind of clothes and makeup they wore. Let me, as another boss (and, of course, a mere male) ask again if there isn't such * thing »s good.taste.in what businesswomen are to wear.. Aren't, low necks and sleeveless dress, and provocative clothing a little out of place? If I had roving eyes (I'm happily married' and these girls seem a little pathetic to roe), I would pick the girl in an office whose decorum was correct and whose clothes were feminine, but appropriate. For instance, the attractive shirtwaist affairs with necks covered, and a minimum of clanking jewelry. To me, good breeding, nice manners and good appearance show up more in an office than in a drawing room! ANOTHER BOSS Time To Grow Up DEAR MRS. MAYFIELD: I am in my early 20s and so is my husband. I was, incidentally, married at 15. I wouldn't throw away my wonderful teen-age years again for -anything. I've lost my love for my husband now and fallen in love with a younger fellow. My husband found out we were secretly meeting and demanded me to stop--or leave home. Gee, I did try to stop, but it was like Hades not seeing him. So now we are meeting again, but my husband doesn't know it--yet. My lover has offered to take me out of town so we can both make a new start, but I can't bear the idea of leaving my children. My husband is a good father and could look after them, but then would I ever forgive myself? HALF CRAZY WITH WORRY P. S. My husband doesn't 'believe in shows, dancing or anything like that, so half the time I'm bored to tears. DEAR HALF CRAZY: Pardon me, but "half crazy" is about right. Dear, dear young woman, .being drawn to a young man may not be love. Such affinities are often short-lived. But marriage vows are taken for life--or should be. To have flris young man (who may, w may not, continue to want yfla) would necessitate breaking your vows, giving up your children and d«ply wounding « man who has proven to be a good rrawinu itaa 19OKT. CANNES, France -- UPI - Mrs.! i Patrida Vanderbill's m i s s i n g ! {daughter telephoned her mother i from Germany today and said "don't worry, Mom. I'm in good hands." Mrs. Vanderbilt previously had i said she believed her blonde, blue- I eyed, 18-year-old daughter Nan- I ette had eloped, but she was not sure with whom. i The call today came through iover a crackling,line to the sea ! front hotel at this Riviera play- spot where the distraught Mrs. Vanderbilt had been anxiously awaiting news from Nanette, missing since Saturday night. i Mrs. Patricia Murphy Wallace j Vanderbilt is the ex-wife of mil- j lionaire sportsman Cornelius Vanderbilt Jr. Nanette is the daughter of her wartime first marriage to a U. S. Marine. Hie phone call from Germany appeared to confirm Mrs. Vander- bi-lt's belief that Nanette had run away with two self-styled American soldiers who said they were on leave from service in Germany. "Hie' two identified themselves here as Wiley Lochmey and his buddy, Charlie Finch. They arrived on the Riviera in * car carrying license plates of the U.S. Army in Germany. But Mrs. Vanderbilt had a shock this morning when Harold Mosley, U. S. consul at Nice, informed her that a check with the U. S. forces in Germany showed there were no Americans namod Wiley Lochmey or Charlie Finch stationed in Germany. j Mrs. Vanderbilt, still » strik-j ingly beautiful blonde at 40, in-i formed police yesterday her j daughter was missing. She had j waited to give Nanette "a reason- j able chance" to show up at i Cannes. : The telephone call this inorninR j was tear-filled and frustrating for' the American mother. ' The line was so bad that she \ could not do much more t h a n ' identify her daughter's voice. j Nanette was as gay as ever. | "Are you all right?" Mrs. Van- j derbilt asked. j "Don't worry. Mom. I'm in good ! hands," Nanette replied. "I'm staying with an American couple at a place just outside Aachen. It's in Germany, near the Luxembourg frontier." Mrs. Vanderbilt said Nanette mentioned the exact name of the village where she is located, just outside Aachen. But she said il was "a difficult German name" and she could not make it out over the bad connection. "Are you with Lochmey?" Mrs. Vanderbilt kept shouting into the phone. But Nanette also could not. hear. "I'm with a nice American couple," she repeated. "Don't worry. I'll write and explain everything," i W A S H I N G T O N -- U P I -- The c h a i r m a n of a House : watchdog committee proposed today that j u n k e t i n g congressmen he required to account publicly for their gov- Then Nanetu- hung up and the '. crnmcnl-paid expenses so taxpayers can be sure their line went dead. money doesn't go for w h i s k y , night clubs and other high The phone call at loast re- ' livins ......... assured Mrs. Vanderbilt that her I( 'P' ( ) m a r Niirlcson (D-Tcx ). tee approves Congressional w daughter was alive.
