"1 have always been interested in people and their problems," says Mrs. Gibbs, "so this field was a natural for me." It was when Mrs. Gibbs was a senior at Northwestern University that she found she had tuberculosis, and was told she probably wouldn't reach the age of 30. Instead of resigning herself to her fate, she fought the battle for her health. Her stay in a sanitarium was less than a year, and after taking it easy for two more years, she-was completely recovered. During this period she learned to make every day count, and it is this thought that still guides her life. Because of this philosophy of life she was led to her third role as mayor of Seal Beach. "As a child growing up in Illinois I was taught we should do what we could at home and at school, and that if we didn't do our part we had no right to complain," she said. "It just follows then that we should all take part in our community affairs." ONE OF HER first acts after taking office as mayor was the appointment of a city manager who takes care of all the city's administrative problems leaving Mrs. Gihbs the job of setting policies, and acting as the city's official representative and hostess. In California there are just six other women who fill the mayor's job. Even though it seems Her Honor Norma Gibbs already has a full agenda, she says: "For relaxation I like to play the piano or take a dip in the ocean." Thus by being unconcerned with non-essentials she can always make time for what she really wants to do: Days Daze You American tourists find it's a tough proposition to keep track of the day in Brazil. Only two days have names: Saturday and Sunday. T h e rest are known as the second, third, fourth, fifth days, respectively. No sensible vaca- tionist wants to keep track of time but when reconfirming his jet seat home it can be confusing when the Pan Am ticket clerk says: "Your flight leaves on the fourth day." medicated powder fast cooler for tired burning feet Y,iu on almost hear jour tired, baTninar feel start to purr-r-r in happy comfort the instant you sprinkle on new Ice-Mint Medicated Powder.
