GIRL SCQUT WEEK Troop begins project to aid retarded tots Ling SUCK, cm).. Fri. Mir. ti, »M INDEPENDENT--Page B-5 'A? the 54th birthday of Girl Scouting is celebrated this week, March 6-12, more than t h r e e million Girl Scouts across the country are making a promise to serve their communities. In keeping with the nationwide pledge, members of Junior Girl Scout Troop 620, M a r i n a Neighborhood of Greater Long Beach Girl Scout Council, have made a very special promise of service. The 15-member group has pledged to donate one meeting a month toward collecting, renewing and delivering toys to Long Beach Retarded Children's Foundation. First step has been to make scrapbooks suitable for children at. the foundation. Latest activity is making playing blocks, which the girls are sanding and painting with a non - toxic finish. Coecfs are surveyed on education goals Results of a survey of 35% of freshmen coeds at Mount St. Mary's College reveal students \vnnt a broad liberal education, w o r r y about grades and realize they have more opportunities than their parents had a generation ago. Only 8% stated social advancement was a considcra- tiop, while 52% indicated achieving top grades was one of the uppermost problems bothering them. Approximately 95% ex- pressed the feeling they have a better opportunity for get' ting a higher education than their parents did. The survey also indicated students feet the pressure for grades is more intense. RESULTS may be indicative of a trend in small Hbi oral arts colleges for women across the nation which runs counter to preoccupation with student revolt at larger coeducational institu-; tions.

For the past 10 years I have worked the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. shift. (I'm a nurse.) My mother, God bless her, cares for my children. My husband is very unreliable. He is club joiner and is always on the go. During my last pregnancy, I had to drive myself to the hospital because my mother couldn't laave the children and my husband was playing bridge at the Legion with his pals. He thinks it's easy for me to work all night and lose sleep trying to be both mother and dad in the day time. I'd quit my job but he never gives me any money and I'm afraid he wouldn't make the house payments. My father warned me about his laziness, but I thought 1| was lucky to get such dancer Now what?--TIRED DEAR TIRED: If it took you eight children to realize you picked a lemon, you are mobile home, complete with g ra pes, serving and tiered trays, laminated pictures and slower than most women, kitchen and baths, they other Attractive and useful items for the home will be Some men will never walk 2?nge thdrmlnds-HAPPY exhib i ted . as long as they have a crutch.
