SA Dolly Herald jn.v «. Utah Cn< l!y, • U'»~ English Expert? There's Job for You in Japan By VIRGIL W. KRET TOKYO rtJP'i-H you speak English, you c:;n easily got a job teaching in Japnn. Millions of young Japanese have a yen to learn En^li=h and just about everyone who knows the language teaches il here. Teachers include flic French, the German". ; nd the Dutch, along with \!:c English, the Australian;-. r d Americans. Few o f the I'j.-.chers are really good but thr.t'f hardly important because few of the students know the difference. Although every Japanese who has finished high school has had six years of English training (from Japanese instructors who speak little English) few of them can manage much more than a happy "hallo," Pays For Tea In order to learn to say "goodbye" the average young Japanese Is willing to fork over a minimum of $2 an hour for the privilege of meeting a foreigner at tea—and he'll gladly pay for the tea. If he's unable to find a foreigner willing to take advantage of the windfall he can go to one of the dozens of foreign language "institutes" around town where he might get serius instruction but there he probably will get bilked. In either case it's not likely he'll learn to say half as much AS he can read—and he can probably read a greal deal— because to him the most frightening, impossible thing in | the world is "English conversa- i lion " ! "English conversation" requires quotation marks because I "conversation" in any language, even in Japanese, is considered a thing unto itself and separate from the written language. Heading is reading and speaking is speaking and never the twain shall meet. But if the Japanese student works hard and buys one of the many paperback textbooks published in Tokyo and written by well-meaning, newly wealthy foreigners, he may learn to say things like: "I am a boy. Jack is also a boy. Jack is my friend. Next week Jack and I will go to | Nikko to see the snow. Cheers." Dirty Words Or he might stumble on to one of the textbooks that specializes in dirty words. Or he might not use a textbook at all and just let his foreign friend talk about himself for an hour. In any case, the results probably will be the same. That is, he won't learn much "English conversation," But if you want to stake a claim in this gold mine you should understand the perils the English teacher must face. For instance, if yo u are not well founded in English you are bound to lose face because almost every Japanese student knows almost everything about English grammar. Those sticky questions about dangling participles can be embarrassing. Here's One Lady Proud To Disclose Her Age MENA, Ark. (UPI)-Women' often are rather hesitant to reveal their ages, but an exception is Mrs. Mary Bittlebrun, a woman with good reason to be forthright. "Aunty Mary," as she is iknown in the nursing home where she lives, is 103 years Burton Critical Of Concessions At Tariff Meet WASHINGTON (UPI)-Utah Congressman Laurence Burton has criticized concessions by the U.S. at the recent "Kennedy Round" tariff negotiations at Geneva. The Utah Republican joined in an attack by the Republican House Task Force group upon the concessions. The GOP group, proposed formation of an 16-member commission to study the means of promoting U. S. food sales abroad, after intimating that the U, S. should have obtained more favorable treatment for American food and fiber exports. The group attacked both increased imports of food into the U.S. and lack of what it callec "imaginative programs" to feed the hungry abroad'with U.S farm products. The Mod watch gets bigger and bigger. The Jewelry Industry Council, taking a look at timepieces for fall, says the Mods come with colorfu bandings ranging from textured gold to plastic. The watch shapes are downright offbeat. old. She was born four weeks before President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in 1864. Aunt Mary's power of recall is vivid and she is exceptionally active physically, but she has no theory on why her longevity,. "It's just the Lord's will," she said. "I've had worries but don't worry too long." Not A Drinker Aunt Mary says she has never used tobacco or alcohol, but she doesn't claim her abstinence contributed significantly to her long life. Nor, she says, did the fact she did not marry until she was 42. She was a teacher in South Dakota at the time of her marriage. Her husband died in 1954 at the age of 96. Mrs. Bittlebrun can recall with ease events of 80 or 90 years ago, but prefers to devote her attention to current events. Much of her time is spent reading and watching television. She does not wear glasses. Good Walker "She doesn't live in the pasl like a lot of them do," explained Mrs. Leotha Standridge, nurse, "She can walk from one end of the building to the other and it's a block long." Aunt Mary goes regularly to her Catholic church about a block from the nursing home. It is easy walking distance. She also makes quilts and visits other patients in the home. She threads needles without help. One of her quilts won a prize last fall in the Polk County air. Aunt Mary lives in the Leisure Lodge Nursing Home ill Mena. The Arkansas Welfare Department says she is the oldest person it supports in a nursing home.

By the There also have been, various spring of 1968 there will be bonded everything—car coats, suits and golf jackets, jump sweater-shirts. Bonding is the process which a fabric, any fabric, is glued under heat and pressure by forms of laminated fabric*, usually in outerwear. Sagner, Inc.. a giant of th« men's clothing industry which lumped all of its various sports wear brands together five years ago under the name of to some acetate fabric such as; Clubman, is the pioneer this fall nylon tricot. The bonding is sol in the sports jacket field. permanent the tvro different fabrics become one and a whole new horizon opens up for clothing manufacture. Manufacturers of women's clothes have been using bonding processes for several years You, Your Child And School By DAVID NYDICK UPI Education Specialist Trhroughout the nation thousands of families will be moving !to new homes. The relocation ! requires planning to avoid j problems for students. Parents can help their children adjust to the new situation. . A little effort will pay big dividends. Part of the difficulty is fear. We all have some fear of the unknown. The anxieties will be reduced by some orientation. Discuss your plans with your child. Help him. understand why the move is taking place. Let him express his opinion in the choice of the new home. Take him with you on some of the house hunting trips. Show him the schools in the neighborhood. A chance to visit the school and meet some staff members can be valuable. A move early in the summer can be advantageus. It can give the child an opportunity to become acquainted with his new home, the neighborhood, and the people. Most important is the chance to meet and become friendly with other children who attend the same school. What about the child's grade levels? It would be best to avoid Amoving during a .student's senior year in high school. This could be a most difficult time. This is often the year when the results of many previous efforts are achieved. Positions in the student government, graduation awards, appointments as athletic team captains and various other social and academic advantages might be missed by a move at a time close to a graduation. If a move is required at time when the child might have unusual difficulties, special arrangements are sometimes pos sible. Cnsideration should be given to the 'possibility of father commuting for a short time. The student may be permitted First Display Irv Silver, New York offict sales manager of the Clubman line, displayed a series of sports jackets which will be on sale this fall for the first time. They were made of a loosely woven cloth resembling Harris tweed without the hair and bonded t° nylon tricot. Without the bonding the fabric would be almost soft enough for a knitted sports shirt; with th« backing it became a nine-ounca (lightweight) tweed that tailored perfectly. The eight colors were such blends as olive .blue, green-tan and chili pepper, The | cut was a neat 1-button jacket with two deep vents and besom, >r unflapped, pockets. "Five years ago you had to be i rich man to own a sports acket," Silver said. "Now everybody has at least one or wo and they are being worn in ome places as much as suits. Actually, nobody needs a sports -oat—it is a 'wanted' item and nen often buy them on impulse. Ve try to keep them buying from us by offering exclusiveness. The bonded sports coat il >ne." Another was a Gurkha abric, named after the Indian urkhas who go into th« Himalayas after the neck hair of Himalayan goats. The neck hair is called wild cashmere and is blended with 49 per cent Scottish wool into a rich fabric • hat does resemble 1 Harris tweed. It is made up in 14 to complete tuition basis. the year on a It is always a good idea to discuss your particular situatior with the principals of the old and new schools. They are familiar with such situations and can offer some valuat advice. Don't become upset when move is necessary. A little thought and a few advance plans can provide a smooth transition and comparatively easy adjustment. Talk to your child and see what problems he feels are of special concern to him. Don't be overly concerned bu be concerned enough to give th( matter your thoughts am understanding. Good judgmen should be your guide. Reassur ance and planning are the keys to success. nodels and although it is not aonded, lighter weights could be. The Spring 1968 bonded fabrics were worked out by Du Pont scientists who turned up with so many new fabrics—120 —that nobody knew what to do with them. So Du Pont had designer John Paul Goebel turn them into finished products for puzzled buyers. Favorite Combination His favorite combination was nylon tricot bonded to Orion jersey which, he explained "is light and bulky and gives enough of a sweater look that it looks like a sweater instead of a shirt." However, he admitted,' some West Coast manufacturers already are turning it into shirts. Goebel said that of 120 fabrics shown to manufacturers at a recent show 40 per cent of them were knit bonded, opening up a new world to outerwear manufacturers. There were three looks—the flat look, the sweater look and the doubleknit look. A : jacket that would run $25 in a real double knit would run about $15 in the new. GoebeFs designs, often coordinated with mock and turtle, neck slipovers to do away with the tie and shirt for sports, were in four principal directions —^pullover outerwear in knits, stretch or woven plaids to succeed the old nylon taffeta; cardigans with such new touches as collars which did not spoil the cardigan's simple lines and cut like sports jackets to end the familiar baggy look; short jackets reminiscent of the old Eisenhower jackets; and shaped outerwear—not nipped in at the waist but trimly fitted, A raincoat fitted like a suit but till could be worn over one. Some of these garments tapered to the waist and then hung straight. OUR BOARDING HOUSE By Bill Freysa DOZ. ,o 4 15-oz.
