-Blythevllle (Ark.) Courier News — Tuesday, April 9,1W8 - Page B«*, Beat rH£ NATIONAL REPORT ON WHAT'S HAPPEN/NC Hippie Yippie: So-called Youth International Party announces huge invasion of Chicago next summer to coincide with Democratic convention. Causing concern among serious antiwar groups and black power _ people who want to grab the headlines. The "Hippie Yippie" gang has predicted a "supercreative synthesis, energy "explosion and information exchange!" They are trying to link underground newspapers in a giant special edition. They talk of cars painted like cabs to hijack convention delegates. They talks of pot-boilers like LSDer Timothy Leary, poet Allen Ginsberg,' Dick Gregory, Bob Dylan, the Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe and the Fish, Arlo Guthrie, The Mamas and The Papas plus dozens more "names" of the rock generation. Talk, talk, talk. The roads will be full of hitchhikers if the Hippie Yippies have their way-say-day. Meanwhile, as Chicago fretfully girds for the long, hot summer, the Demo convention city officials hope the Hippie Yippies stay on a talk gag. INSIDE, TWIGGY: She's, changed her mind! Twiggy, sick and looking giggly, has decided to have a "real slam" at the movies. Busily growing long hair (what! no hairpiece), she's being touted ,by her boy friend-manager, Justin de Villeneiive, as "the biggest thing ever." The Beatles are backing the film, "The Wishing 'Tree." The story is -based upon a Faulkner. fairy tale. The girl (Dulcie) can't decide if she's 12 or 20. Being billed as "a classic for kids," "The Wishing Tree" could be the year's top comedy. 300-MILLION AMERICANS BY YEAR ZOOfl?: By 1975 we, may have population of 225-million.

California's Commission on Youth recently published a "Guide for Parents and Youth" and gave a copy to all students in grades six through 12 in the school district. Pamphlet covers curfew hours, -recommended dating procedures and contained data about drugs. Teens laughed heartily through section telling high school seniors -to be home from supervised activities, by 8:30 on week nights; also loved the part that quaintly advised all teens below 10th grade to avoid any form of pairing off. Many teens and some parents resent being told what to do— consider idea of book an insult. To others, it's a godsend. Will it start a trend? — By Robert MacLeod Editor, 'Teen Magazine NEW YORK (AP) ~ Girl watching has always been a major industry in the American business office, but the arrival of the miniskirt turned it into a fine'art. You can tell a person's character—or lack of it—by the way he gazes at the gams that pass his desk during what is referred to, sometimes laughingly, as the work day. Sometimes he will demonstrate more real acting skill than goes into the winning of the average Motion Picture Academy Award. , If you look around your own office, you may note some of the following familiar types of miniskirt viewers: THE GLUTTON-This guy ogles any femme that moves- young or old, tall or short, fat or slim. "Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy," he keeps : gurgling. His day would be made if even Lassie sauntered by in a miniskirt. HAMLET—To look or- not to look, that is the question with the old-maidish office bachelor. He 'knows he wants to but thinks he shouldn't. By the tune he settles this soul-searing issue, by- taking a look, the girl is just disappearing through the door. For the next hour and a half he sits and silently broods in disappointment. TH.E . CONNOISSEUR-'.'I can't be bothered with rcn-of- the-mill views," he says; He refuses to become interested unless the girl meets his exact specifications—blonde, aged between 19 and 24, wearing'pale violet fishnet hose and a miniskirt at least seven or more inches above her kneecap. Then he closes one eye, puts a magnifying monocle in the other eye, and hods in calm artistic approval. THE OLD-TIMER—"Too much is too much," he remarks reminiscently. "These miniskirts have turned the office into a public beach. It was more fun in the old days when the girls left more to a fellow's imagination." THE BORN LOSER-Joe is near-sighted. "Boy, Jiere comes a real'beauty," whispers the fellow at the next desk. "Where? Where? Where?" asks Joe desperately. By the time he switches to the right' pair of glasses arid focuses in, the girl has turned a corner and gone. THE EEKER—Roscoe prefers the worm's eye view. Whenever a miniskirt looms on the horizon, he pretends to drop something on the floor, so he can bend over and glance up. "Just as I thought—she's wearing her'cerise garters," he announces later to an all-male audience in the washroom. THE PURITAN-He can't help staring at the girls, but it bothers his conscience terribly. After looking at three miniskirts in a row, his guilt bothers him so much he phones his wife and says, "Darling, I love you, I love you, I love you. I think about you all day long." THE ROVER—To Rodney the grass' is always greener in 'the other pasture. "The birds in our office are all dogs," r he declares. So, when there are no executives in sight, he moves his swivel chair'to the window, takes a pair of binoculars out of his desk, and stares at the girls in the skyscraper across the way.

Jan Barna writes from Montreal, "Knowing your sense of humor, I thought you might appreciate what happened-in our weekly duplicate game at the Chateau Bridge Club. "I was sitting South and'' my, wife North. East opened one no-trump, but I wasn't paying much attention and thought that he had passed. When West passed also and my partner bid two clubs, I thought she had. opened with a forcing bid.-In?- cidentally, her two - club bid was the Landy Convention showing both majors. "When I replied two diamonds. West doubled. I don't know exactly why, but I guess tie didn't really have any reason to do so. Anyway, my wife bid two hearts and, in typical i husband fashion, I jumped to three no-trump. East doubled and West opened the jack of clubs. "Dummy's queen lost to East's ace and a club came back. West played the 10 and I was dummy with the king.. I led a diamond, taken by East's king. A third club was won by my nine and I cleared the diamond suit.. East had no defense at this point and, for want of seeing • anything better to do, led another diamond. I cashed my diamonds and the last club while discarding down to the ace-king-10 of hearts in dummy. East made the mistake of let- < ting a heart go, so I overtook I' my queen of hearts and made an overtrick at my silly doubled contract. 'My wife asked if I were crazy to bid three no-trump against an opening no - trump with my five points,.and for the first time I realized that I had not heard the opening bid. The best I could do was to apologize to my wife and our unfortunate opponents, but I did not give back the top score." We have heard of many instances of a player not-hearing an opening bid.
