Emma Guffey Miller, chairman of the National Women's Party, comes to Capitol Hill annually with a briefcase full of specific grievances. Recent examples: "A North Carolina woman's father bought her a trousseau. She started away with the bridegroom. There was a wreck, a fire, the trousseau was destroyed. The husband sued the railroad company for the loss of his bride's trousseau. He was given a good sum of money and he kept it for himself." "A woman in New York keeps a boarding house and has a drunken husband. He is allowed to collect the money that she has worked hard to earn." "In Michigan a woman wanted to be stylish, so she had her hair bobbed. The husband sued the barber and collected because his wife's hair belonged to him." Statutes Discriminate Rep. Martha W. Griffiths (D-Mich) declares: "In state after state you can find statutes which discriminate against women solely because they are women. Under the guise of protection, women are denied equal job opportunities, equal pay for equal work, and other advantages reserved for men." Women are by no means united behind the equal rights amendments. Groups that oppose it include the League of Women Voters, YWCA, American Nurses' Association, and women of virtually all labor unions. The equal rights amendment "expresses a theory of sex equality and ignores the fact of sex difference," Miss Louise Stitt of the National Consumers League told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Miss Stitt and other spokeswomen of the anti-amendment group said there's no getting around the fact that women are more delicate and vulnerable than men, and hence need special protection more than "jungle-type equality."

"FINE ARE NOW FOR FALL WABER A coffee hour, a musical pro gram, a discussion of European musia festivals and a short busi ness session were the features when members of the Morning Musical Club met on Monday evening at the YWCA. New members of the club were complimented during the social period and were welcomed by Mrs. Hymen Ezra Cohen, president, who presented each with a corsage of bronze chrysanthemums. The Halloween decorations were arranged by Mrs. J. R. Mohlie, chairman for the day, who because of laryngitis causing an inability to speak, was represented by Mrs. Mattie Willis. Mrs. Willis presided as moderator for a discussion entitled "Festival Echoes" in which Mrs. Richard Lake and Miss Mari-beth Amrheim told of their recent experiences abroad. Mrs. Lake, prominent in the city's musical circles, traveled in Europe with her husband and continued her vocal studies there, while Miss Amrhein was Battle Creek's Community Ambassador in Austria for several months. Each told of her musical experiences in the various countries which they visited, ranging from the European version of rock 'n' roll to the classical, but both agreed that the most impressive performances were done out-of-doors and by candlelight. Both of the tourists are teachers, Mrs. Lake in the Kellogg Agricultural School at Hickory Corners, and Miss Amrhein in the first grade at Riverside School. Mrs. Lake was graduated from Michigan State University and Miss Amrhein from Ohio Wesleyan, and it was interesting to note that their choice of musical entertainment ran almost parallel. Miss Amrhein. who studied violin sporadically, confessed that she loves to sing, although to quote her, "Nobody wants to hear me". Mrs. Lake was the featured soprano -on the evening's program, singing German lieder to the accompaniment of Mrs. A. P. Williamson, pianist. A piano solo was given by Miss Susan M. Litchfield, a newcomer to Battle Creek, who is a music teacher in the Lake- view school system. She is a native of Grosse Pointe, attended Colby Junior College at New London, N.H., and the University of Michigan School of Music where she was graduated in 1957 from the School of Music. She is a piano student of Ava Comin Case. Miss Susan M. Litchfield, a grade teacher in the Battle Creek schools, gave a trumpet solo, accompanied by Mrs. Alfred G. Richards, pianist. She is an Ohio native and has made her home here for two years, being a member of the Battle Creek Symphony Orchestra. She is a graduate of De Pauw university as a music honor student earning the Vandenman Thompson award.

It's a well-known fact that men between 40 and 65 just love to have young girls fuss over them. Do you think that because a girl happens to be a niece a man can have only lily-white thoughts? One reads in the papers regularly where some old fool has married a young chicken. I'm a former school teacher and have been married 36 years. If my husband carried on in this fashion I'd leave him, even now. I suspect the poor woman who wrote you was having problems with her old. boob. Your reply could only have made matters worse. N.M.G. Read on, N.M.G.: DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've wanted to write to you in the past as I've read your column with great ' interest and approval. But as is often the case, I find myself writing only now that I wish to criticize. In a recent column you gave tacit approval to an uncle whose nieces showed unconstructive signs of affection. Recent research in phychiatry has shown that such adolescent behavior in girls is present only in families where there is a highly seductive relationship with the older man. I believe it should be pointed out that the uncle is unwittingly fostering something destructive toward his nieces. In contrast to your many replies which I consider to be psychiatrically sound I comment on this relatively small item because I know of your wide influence and the role you play in preventive psychiatry. With sincere respect, DR. (name witheld for professional reasons.) Dear Doctor (And Mrs. N.M.G.): Thank you for your comments. Because I felt that most uncles have a paternal interest in their nieces I hastened to approve the affectionate embraces. In viewing the problem I made no allowances for the chemistry of the situation which COULD be explosive, uncle or no. A seductive niece, on the Jap of a not-so-paternal uncle could add up to a highly provocative seating arrangement. So, rather than examine uncle's head to determine if his motives are lily-white or unconsciously tattle -tale gray, we should assume that a female on the lap of a male is bound to affect the blood pressure. Off, girls! DEAR ANN: PLEASE advise whether or not I should mind my own business. My widowed mother, aged 50, is considering marriage with my wife's 40-year-old bachelor brother. Mother came to visit us and the two of them spent a great deal of time together. They've been corresponding regularly since her return, and now she's talking marriage. They are both lonesome and need someone. We would like to see them married, but not to each other. The age differ SHOE REPAIR SERVICE 133 W.
