"My country is not so used to beauty contests " said raven- haired Maria do Carmo Paraise ^jjSnacho, Miss Portugal in the -1965 Miss Universe pageant. "Many are against girls making a show..of themselves. ..-._:. "It is against the nature of ~ our women to make a spectacular." "Bathing suits, for instance, we wear at the beach for swimming. But to wear them in front of many people in a parade? No." Maria, a 5-foot-7 brown-eyed airline receptionist, wore a bathing suit in the Miss Portugal competition and will here.

It won its spurs inching out victories over the old coalition of Republicans and Southern Democrats. Now it sees President Johnson's leg- lly night serving groups 1 and 2.

The chairman of the study group. Rep. Frank Thompson Jr. of New Jersey, says it is as much needed as ever, and keeps proving its worth convincingly, if not spectacularly. "If we weren't providing the hard core of votes, those margins wouldn't be so impressive," Thompson sai,d in an interview, "and look at the vote on the Housing and Urban Development Department—we went all out on that and we needed to." The pioposal for the new Cabinet department won 217-184 in the House — much closer than some other major administration measures. The last Congress had twice denied President John F. Kennedy's request for similar legislation. For Southerners, it had a racial issue, because Kennedy announced in advance he intended to name a Negro, Robert C. Weaver, to head it. Weaver, then and now head of the Housing and Home Finance Agency, is still considered in the running to become the first Negro in the Cabinet. When Thompson spoke of going all out for a bill, he meant among other things using to the full DSG's chain-telephone system. Its operators contend that a message, usually "Get to the floor, we need your vote," can be relayed to all 165 DSG members in three minutes. The liberal wing of the Democratic party used to lose votes because the more determined Southerners stayed in town and in the Capitol to make their bloc strength count. A group of Northern and Western Democrats, worried about the success of the coalition, formed the forerunner of DSG in 1957. Lee Metcalf of Montana, who subsequently moved to the Senate, was one of the main organizers, and the band was for a time known as "Metcalf's Ma rauders " Two years later the organization sot itself up formally and adopted the study group name, partly because it conducts legislative studies, but largely be- .cause It wanted a low-key designation to discourage any be lief it was out to challenge the regular party leadership. a series of curved lines In black which are symbolic of a radio sine wave.

Gronouski is the exact design of the Robert Fulton commemorative to honor the 200th anniversary of the inventor's birth.

First day ceremonies will be held Aug. 19 in Clermont, N. Y., where Fulton resided.
