*• '•->» ' 14 the Republic Phwnlt, W«?., May 8, Orien W. Fif er Jr. Fat Boy Loses 58 Pounds Fast IF PHOENIX merchants think they're having trouble spotting shoplifters, they should consider the case of a Turkish smuggler. Officers nf the Turkish national police were keeping an eye on a large hotel in Istanbul. They saw a man who was hefty, but had a small face. He walked slowly. Soon the man made contact with a known crook, so both were arrested. They quickly learned the reason for the man's bulk. He had 1,000 Swiss watches, weighing 58 pounds, concealed in a vest. Some of my spies, who have recently returned from Las Vegas, have an alarming story. They say there's an apartment house there that bars children and married couples. The place has individual patios, and doesn't •eem to frown on the possible lax morals of its residents. There are two swimming pools, one for the use of those who prefer swimming suits. The other is for nudists. I presume a wall separates the two. » * » WHEN YOU get to Heaven, you will likely view Many folks whose presence there Will be a shock to you. But keep very quiet; do not even stare, Doubtless there'll be many folks Surprised to see you there! — Cute An unusual reunion took place in the back elevator of the R & G Building the other day. On it were Maggie Wilson, a writer for our women's department; Jim Bacon, AP Hollywood columnist, and Jimmy Starr, publicist for the Ramada Inn chain. They met years and years ago on a Hollywood special train bound from Chicago to Pasadena, Calif., promoting a Gloria Swanson movie. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Zeppln, 2323 W. Citrus Way, are somewhat shaken, to put it mildly. Their pet female Dachshund was hit by a truck in an alley behind their home, and the concussion the dog suffered put her In a veterinary hospital for a week. Cost: $50. The Zeppins think- the driver of the SRP truck was driving carelessly and too fast, and that maybe the project should pick np the tab. Such things are in a lawyer's line. But I doubt if there's any law against hitting a dog in an alley. A WOMAN writes: "Recently your column dealt with the problem of the single woman, or the woman alone. There is another aspect to this problem still untalked about and, to the best of my knowledge, ignored. "My son, a teen-ager, without a father at home, no relatives here and, because of my status, no male friends, is in need of a friend. I've talked with other women in the same circumstances and find they have the same problem. I tried to get a Big Brother for my son, but was told there are a great many Little Brothers but not enough Big Brothers .... My boy has never been in trouble, for which I am so very grateful, but if he did become a delinquent dozens of hands would reach out to help rehabilitate him. Why won't someone say now: I will help?" She did not sign her name.

CRYING OVER SPILLED FLOWERS — Linda Polk, 11-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jim Polk, Flagstaff visitors, sheds a tear or two because she dropped a bouquet of flowers in front Republic Photos by Ludwig Keaton of the Donofrio Floral Co. shop oh N. Central. Danny Thelander, 8-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Wallace Thelander, of Tempe, offers Linda a bouquet. They were'shopping for Mother's Day. A quick survey of a couple of shopping centers revealed some interesting details of the annual tribute to Mother on the eve of the Great Day.' Little girls crowded th« Jewelry counters and lingerie departments; their eyes were almost as big as the dollars in their purses. You could hear the sighs of disappointment when clerks mentioned prices. LITTLE BOYS, abashed by the glittering displays of merchandise on well-stocked shelves and counters, had trouble making up their minds. They settled for shoes for Mom, a box of candy, a bouquet of posies, either real or artificial, a treasure chest for the jewels that Mom already had, a housecoat or a shiny aluminum skillefc The Republic's Mother's Day editor took the liberty of following a boy, about 8, who was accompanied by his aunt, about 38. They stopped at a counter filled with assorted glassware, chinaware, hardware and cer- amicware. The MD editor interpreted the following conversation: Boy: (picking up a thin flower vase). I bet Mom would like this. AUNT: Be careful, dear. Don't break the vase. Boy: It's only $3.25. I got 87 cents. Aunt: Don't jiggle the vase, dear. It's glass. Boy: (Tilting the vase sideways to get a better look at it). You could lend me the rest of the money, and I could pay you Mek out of my allowance. You think Mom would like it? Aunt: If you drop the vase and break it you'll have to pay for it. Boy: Mom could put it on top of the television set in my bed* room and fill it with flowers and look at it every time she came In to turn off the set whefl I go to bed. at night. Aunt: (Opening her pocketbook). We'd better buy it while it's still in one piece. v. 1 Boy: (Smiling). I know MOni will like it. Aunt: (To clerk). I'll carry it.'

Turner of United Cerebral^ Palsy Association will disctjjjp:'' service to physically handicapped'^ children. THAT MUCH MONEY!—While it may be the spirit of Mother's Day that counts, Albert Tistra of Glendale, Calif., thinks the price of the, dress is a bit steep for the purchasing power of daughter Trina, 5. Trina was coaxed into the jewelry department where Mom's gift eventually was bought. LIKE THIS—Loren Vaught, 3, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Vaught of Phoenix, tries to make the saleswoman understand he wants a pair of shoes "like this for my Mom." With the help of relatives who accompanied him to the store, Loren finally selected a pair that suits both him and them. STORIES CHILDREN LOVE ... On Records and in illustrated Storybooks!
