"Honey, if I thought it would really make you like me any better, 1 would buy you a thousand dresses like that--but, you know, tvith only three credit cards to his name a man can only afford so much." "Oh, Marge, if only once he saw me dressed up like that I know he'd call me again." "Yes, Myrtle, I agree. The dres was made for you. And if you only had one thing more -- the figure--it would probably fit you." "I always like to see the fam lies in store windows. They seem to be having more real fun than Ihe families I know in real life." "That's the way I'd like my wife lo be--all dressed lip, going nowhere, and with her mouth shut forever" "Really, Joe, I don't see why you fight so hard against wearing Bermuda shorts. All men have hairy legs. You see that dumnv on the left wearing shorts? You'v got better knees than he has except, maybe, they're not s pink." "When she phoned me she said t would bo great if I mel her at eight outside Macy's. But already t's half past. I wonder did she really say it would be Tine if I met her at nine outside Gimbel's." "Sure it's nice to see you. But now that I seen you, what in hell's been keeping you?" 'Oh, I think I'd be happy forever if I could wear a wedding Iress like that--at least once." Chang* Of Posture "Well, Dr. Huebachkind, I'm robably here for the same reason you are. We psychiatrists get veary of listening all day to live women lying down on a couch complaining about nothing. It Is a pleasure on the way home to ause outside a window and stare at dummy model women standing up and complaining about nothing The total information is the same, jut the change of posture refreshing." "Maybe if I took up the hem, and dyed it, and changed the waistline and put in a tuck here and there, the one I bought lasl year would look like the one they're showing this year. Any way, if I put it on upside down my husband wouldn't notice the difference." "I dare you to go In and ask the price. If you do, I may try it on myself."

(Staff Photo) Died In 1847 State By CLIFF SESSIONS JACKSON (liPI) -- Rough nnd rugged farmers o! South Mississippi's pine woods were disgusted to see the following advertisement in a weekly newspaper more than 100 years ago: Lost by tha Hon. Powhatten Ellis, in crossing Tallahala Creek, the following articles: 6 lawn handkerchiefs; 6 cambric shirts; 2 night do.; 1 nightcap; 1 pr. stays; 4 pr. silk stockings; hair brush, flesh-brush, nail brush, clothes brush, razors and dressing-glass, pomatum, perfume c. c." Such dandy and effeminate articles touched olf to much disgust among the citizens that Ellis was severely beaten in the area in his bid for high political office. That was the desired effect of Franklin E. Plummer, who was opposing Ellis. Tricks Were Successful Such tricks proved successful for Plummer, a Massachusetts on the authority ol Gen. Arthur] toddling boy, lay it gently across native who migrated to Mississippi in the early 1800's, during a lengthy and colorful political career. His rise and fall may contain valuable lessons in everyday politics for the candidate of to day. During one campaign, Plumm er was accused in a newspape: of being an abolitionist, an accu sation which would compan with a 1060 charge that somi Mississippi office seeker is an in tegrationist. Plummer met the challenge Fox, a well-known planter and politician of Lawrence County, with having confessed abolition opinions to him, and having instigated several of his slaves to abscond." u · · ^ "Tissue of Lies" "Mr, Plummer waited until his enemies began using it on the platform, and then he came out with the printed declaration of Gen. Fox that the handbill was a tissue of lies," reported Claiborne. "The reaction was tremendous. Plummer was never taunted on that subject again." 'In one of his contests," wrote Claiborne, "he and one of his competitors, Judge Harry Cage, agreed to canvass together. They net at Holmesville, and when they slopped at 12 a.m. at a farnr louse for dinner, Cage pleaset :he mother very much by kiss ing her little girl and praising ;ts beauty, but she was com plelely carried away when she saw Plummer pick up her wee Farmer's Daughter Wilt Learn Fast AMES, Iowa (AP) -- If th farmer's daughter plans to marry a "city slicker" she will probably get more education than if she decides to settle down with a farm lad. Rural Sociologist Lee Burchinal, of Iowa State University said Friday a limited study of 80 high school senior farm girls showed lis lap, turn over its little petti coat, and go hunting red bugs They are powerful bad,' saic Summer, 'and mighty hard on jabies." She was enchanted ant never forgot that tender heartec congressman." Successful Slogan "Plummer for the people; Ihi eople for Plummer," was his successful slogan for many com migns. His support, wrote C[ai xinie, was from "small farm ers, untainted by banks and un corrupted by wealth or the de sire for it--a population as prim Hive and as pure as was to be according to historian J.F.H Claiborne, by "having secretl; printed ant' distributed a haml bill. In which he was chargec Found the civilized world.' But Plummer's success finall; got the best of him. He begai wearing fancy clothes, runnin with high society figures ant speaking like a big city resideni The "pure" people were disillus ioned. A Jackson newspaper said vo ers were "dropping Plummer a fast as the ripe peaches are drop ping from the trees" and, sur enough, the clever politician fin ally met with defeat in a rac for the Senate. The history books say Plum mer spent his last years in Jacl son as a heavy-drinking loafe Said Claiborne: 'Those who 01 ]y knew him In his last decat as a defunct politician and a so lurking in mean places with Ic* associates, can have no conce tion of the power he once excr ed."
