Singer happy with music after Beatles NEW YORK (AP) - Criticizing Paul McCartney's records has been something of a blood sport for rock writers since the breakup of the Beatles 20 years ago. "The perception after the Beatles was that nothing was any good," McCartney said. McCartney said somebody must like his stuff. The interview is published in the March issue of Fame magazine. "Linda and I have since looked back at that period," he said. "We were sitting with Dave Bowie, looking though (a rock book). We looked up Wings and 'Back to the Egg,' which I guess was considered the absolute low point, got to No. 8 in the American charts. They told each other, "We did amazingly well. Anyone else would have given their right arm for a career like that." Paul McCartney Bathroom stalls boost geography DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) — The struggle to promote geographic literacy among college students has entered a novel arena at Davidson College. Students at the Dean Rusk Program in International Studies have taped world maps to the sides of about 150 campus bathroom stalls. "It's a place where people have time on their hands. We're hoping this will help them use it constructively," said senior Mary Snyder, who is spearheading the effort, dubbed the Bathroom Brigade For Geographical Literacy. Defection helped start revolution? NEW YORK (AP) — Former Olympic gymnast Nadia Comaneci says she did not live "the good life" in Romania, and denies she was the mistress of Nicu Ceausescu, son of the executed dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. Comaneci, who won glory for her country when she scored perfect 10s in the Montreal Olympics in 1976, also said in Life magazine that her defection from Romania may have helped start the revolution there. She said her escape to the West in November hit her homeland "like a bomb. A bomb for the government. Because what will the people think? That even Nadia leaves Romania. . "They thought I had the good life, but I didn'tr"! Comaneci lived just like tne otherSi » About a month after Comaneci left, Romania's communist government was overthrown and the elder Ceausescu was executed. University mascot causes a stink ENID, Okla. (AP) — The unofficial mascot of Phillips University — P.U. for short — wandered through an open door and caused quite a stink. A wayward skunk sprayed the floors of Marshall Hall as animal control workers hustled it outside. "You try to keep them as calm as possible," said David Handley, manager of the Enid animal shelter. "If you get them by the tail, they won't spray. This one we got around the mid-section and he let go. I kept him pointed at the floor.'' The skunk, whose fragrance sometimes arouses a response similar to the university's initials, was adopted by students more than 40 years ago as the school symbol.

My oldest is now 25 and will be getting married at the end of this year. Her mother and I were divorced when she was 17, and her mother remarried six years ago. My daughter wants to walk down the aisle with her stepfather on one side and me on the other. I don't feel right about this. She is MY daughter, and I want to walk her down the aisle alone. She says if I don't do it her way, she will have her mother and stepfather walk her down the aisle. Under these circumstances, would it be wrong if I didn't go to the wedding? I love my daughter very much, and I was a good father. — Tampa Dear Tampa: Since you raised the girl, I agree you should have the honor of walking her down the aisle. No matter how this problem is resolved, I urge you to attend. To stay away would be a mistake you'd regret forever. Dear Ann Landers: I just finished reading the letter from the high school girl who was angry and upset because her parents moved in her junior year. My dad moved us (my mom and six kids) 10 different times. I knew from experience that a new school can be scary and intimidating. I also knew I had to make the best of it, so I became involved in as many activities as I could handle. I now have friends in their 20s and 30s whom I have known since third grade in Chicago, eighth grade in Cincinnati, 12th grade in Washington, D.C., and college in southern Maryland. I moved back to Chicago after graduation and later met my husband in that great city. Believe it or not, his family moved as much as mine, and we have been transferred twice in the last two years. I feel fortunate to have moved so often in my growing-up years, because I am much more self-confident and well-rounded than if I had stayed in one town all my life. Please tell "Boston Heartache" the way to make friends is to take the initiative. If she is friendly and open, people will accept her. Believe me, I know from experience. P.S. We were just transferred to Victoria, Texas, and I can't wait to get there and start my new life. Sign me—Lots of Mileage Left Dear Mileage: Tlje teen-ager who wrote was complaining because the bottle was half empty. You rejoiced because the bottle was half full. Attitude is everything. Bless you for proving the point so beautifully. Read on. Dear Ann Landers: Here's a little parable for the girl who hated her parents because they had to move to another city. This meant leaving her high school friends and the popularity she had enjoyed. An old man who was considered the wisest person in the city was called on to share his wisdom with a young couple who seemed distressed.

"How are the people in this city?" "How were the people in the city where you came from?" the wise man asked. "They were awful," was the response. "We didn't like any of them." The old man replied, "Well, they're the same here." The following day, another couple came and asked the same question. The old man asked, "And how were the people in the city you came from?" "They were wonderful," was the reply. "We hated to leave." "Well," the old man said, "they are the same here." Dear Ann Landers: A man I work with has a lovely wife who is about 35. He keeps saying if anything happens to "Erma," he's going to marry a woman over 40, because, "They don't yell. They don't tell. They don't swell. And they're grateful as hell." What do you think about this creep's reasoning? —South Bend Dear S.B.: The creep is mistaken. These days women over 40 yell, they tell and they also swell. And often their gratitude is expressed with a paternity suit. Write to Ann Landers in care of Creators Syndicate, 5777 W. Century Blvd., No. 700, Los Angeles, Calif., 30045-5600.
