Editorial . . . feel 'Insulfed' On Air Travels? i^ONGRESS HATH NO FURY like a scornful woman-especially when the woman is a member of Congress hereelf. Rep. Martha Gi-iffiths, D-Mich., charges that the requirement By most airlines that their stewardesses be young and single is rank discrimination against married women. What's more. It's putting "sex in place of safety." .And if that isn't indictment enough. "This emphasis on attractive, young and single girls," she says, "is an insult to every ^rl who ever served as a stewardess and to every man who ever ijode a plane.'.' 'i- Mrs. Griffiths started sending up flak against the airlines titer receiving a letter from a former stewardess who complained that she had been fired just because she got married. For a ^tear or so, the congresswoman has been trying to get the govern- ihent's Commission on Civil Rights to outlaw such an unfair ^^ployment practice under the section of the 1964 civil rights act which forbids job discrimination on the basis of sex. The commission, perhaps fearing that such a move might- ijpen the door not only to unattractive, old and married women feut to unattractive, old and married men serving as steward- (esses), has wisely refrained from ruling. Her plea oh the grocnds of discrimination failing, the con- feresswoman might best be advised to try another approach- Sie sex-api>eal angle. After all, the Supreme Court's decision in the celebrated Ginsberg case held that literature that was inoffensive in itself might be proscribed if it was presented in a manner calculated to tlttillate the prospective reader's prurient interest. Cei^ainly, if there Is even a suspicion that the airlines ai-e •apitalijang on the natural weakness of the average prospective Hale p^senger, let alone "insulting" him, they should be brought down tii earth forthwith. Wrio knows what interesting doors this might open? Take the Miss (note the immediate qualification in the first word) America contest, which Is not only a highly developed form of discrimination but . . . "I wouldn't care if I were beuig served by Marie Dressier if she did it well," says Mrs. Griffiths. Surely no right-thinking American male would complain if Marie Dressier won a beauty contest so long as Bert Parks got to sing. Imbibe—And Walk Home •T"HE DECESIOI? as to whether or not a pei-son is sober enough to drive home after drinking, something that is the source of many a postparty argument, may be taken out of human hands entirely, reports prevention magazine. Writing in the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Carl S. Alexander suggests that a drunkometer could be linked directly to a car's ignition system. To start the engine, the driver would first have to breathe into the drunkometer, which could measure the alcoholic concentration of his breath. If it were above a fixed level, the meter would not permit the ignition circuit to function. Such a device, says tlie doctor, would take the decision to drive or not to drive away from the drinking person, whose over-confidence is often directly proportional to his overimbibing, and insure that the car be operated only by a sober driver.

There are 47 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1864, Union Civil War Gen. William T. Sherman began his devestating march to the sea after burning Atlanta, Ga. On this date: In 1856, James Buchanan was elected the iSth president of the United States. In 1935, the Philippine Islands were declared a free commonwealth by U.S. President Franlt- lin D. Roosevelt. In 1940, German planes bombed the historic English city of Coventry. In 1942, the battle for Tunisia began. In 1944, the U.S. 3rd Army was figliting its way into the German stronghold at Metz. Ten years ago — Sources in Cairo denied a Moscow report that Egypt had asked for immediate sliipment of Soviet volunteers to help fight off British, French and Israeli forces. Five years ago — President John F, Kennedy and Gen. Park Chung Hee,. head of the South Korean military government, issued a communique at the end of a meeting at the While House. The communique said the United States would continue to provide Soutli Korea with economic aid and that it would send armed forces to aid South Korea in the event of a Communist, attack. One year ago—U.S. air cavalrymen in South Viet Nam claslied with Communist troops in jungles just si.\ miles from the Cambodian border. Deny Barry And Nixon Move To Block Romney ... Sharp Shopping Runaway Mom Returns Home NEW YORK (AP) — Bubbles Smollen, 9, who, for five weeks, took care of her father, four brothers and two sistei-s, has her mother back again. Theresa Smollen, 30, i-eturned home Sunday to the family's three-room, $49-a-month, Bronx flat. She disappeared Oct. 4. Left behind were Bubbles — Margaret — husband William, 48, and six other children ranging in age from 10 months to 11 yefars. Mrs. Smollen was brought home by her husband from Dar' by. Pa., where she had been working as a machine operator. She identified herself to two Darby policemen Saturday, and said she wanted to go home. I They called New York police, i who notified the husband. j i "It was stupid," Mrs. Smollen \ ; said, "but I thought if I worked' i we'd get enough to rent a little , I house and we'd be together I again." But after paying her room and board, she said, she found little left to save. The Alps are Europe's most populai- and spectacular science atti-action.

Learn How to Use \ew Laundry Equipment The continued use of the coin- operated laundry reflects a growing pattern in homemaking in the United States. It also has uncovered the startling fact that the majority of junior and senior high school girls knows littie If nothing about operating home laundi7 equipment. Frank Spangler, who has three daughters, says this discovery made him stop and think. An executive with Westinghouse and especially involved in the development of coin-operated laundry and drycleaning equipment, Spangler admitted he wn? upset to leani how little parents teach their children about handling today's automatic wasliers. One reason for his concern is that a growing number of coin- op clients are youngsters and newlyAveds who use money tlioy saved by not buying laundry equipment for boats, color TV or stereo. AnotJier is thai a high school class session for junior and senior girls in Mansfield, Ohio, where he also operates a coin- op setup, definitely showed a need for special insti-uction in laundering inside or outside the home. Spangler has been in the coin- op business since it got off the ground in 1946-47 and his current operation has been open 24 hours a day since 1960. In this time he has learned and backed up his observations with surveys that show 11 per cent of the women in the United States rely upon the coin- operated laundi-y. and of those Who use such laundries, 50 per cent have home laundry equipment as well. Spangler feels most women are quite shrewd and earnestly ti-y to save their husbands' money. Is spite of this, too many in (he low-income bracket waste money by i-'" detergents and laundry additives. "Many wui-.u oy their washing," he says. "They come into the stores witli a basket looking like an apolhecai-y shop and put something of eveiylhing in the machine. Often these work against each other. Few women know how to use chlorine bleaches properly. They put ti^em in too soon." Coin-operated laundries also offer special dry-cleaning and pressing equipment. This has proved economical for coats and jackets, skirts, suits, wook shirts. Slacks and pants. "Generally," Spangler says, the prices in the coin laundering business are essentially the Same as wlien the industry began. Only now we ha\c better equipment and operators." WASHINGTON (AP) - Barry Goldwater says It's "not true" that he and Richard M. Nixon are collaborating to ti'y to block any bid by Michigan Gov. George Romney for the 1968 Republicah presidential nomination. But Goldwater, though not closing the door on Romney, said the governor still has "a lot of homework to do" with party leaders to atone for not endorsing Goldwater in the 1964 presidential race. Romney, meanwhile, said he still hasn't decided whether to run for president. Goldwater was asked Sunday on ABC's "Issues and Answers' if he were collaborating with Nixon to stop Romney, as the questioner said, "it has been WTitten and reported." "No that is not true," said Goldwater. "I happen to be a Nixon backer, but I liaven t seen Dick Nixon in person in over three months. Nixon is regarded as another likely candidate for the nomination. Romney, aijpearing on NBC's "Meet tlie Press,"-continued his! move to gloss over old differ- 1 ences with Goldwater. Tliough saying "I just haven't made a decision" on whether to run for president, Romney was his most candid so fai- in acknowledging he is thinking about running. He and Goldwater did join in attacking Secretary of Defense i Robert S. McNamara in the wake of McNamara's announcement that the Soviet Union is deploying an antimissile system. "Just another incident of where McNamara is not level- i ing with the American people," said Goldwater. "Perhaps we have a gap in this (antimissile) respect now as a result of mismanagement of these Democratic administi'a- tions," said Romney. \ On GOP politics, Romney said, "I am not interested in | I going hack and taking a look at the past." i But Goldwater was interested, 'saying: "Romney is a Republi- • can. He calls himself one. But it has only been in this campaign that he has publicly done this. Now this may not mean any- tliing to the rank and file American, but it means a lot to tliosc l)cop )e who work in Republican jOTlitics. He has a lot of home work to do and a lot of spade : and groundwork to do in the area of the Republican party itself." News Briefs BOSTON (AP) - About 20O Massachusetts.

So much so that we couldn't bear to stop with the slickest- looking split grille ever to grace a Wide-Track. (Or any other car, for that matter.) We went ahead and made the windshield wipers disappear. The car not only looks cleaner, but the wipers are less subject to Icing and freezing, too. Then we got rid of the vent windows on all Grand Prix hardtops. We replaced them with nifty monograms and a flow-through ventilation system. We even designed a rather unique hood-mounted tachometer option that's available on all Pontlacs. As are our other bright new options like our eight-track stereo tape player and AM-FM Stereo-Multiplex radio. And, of course, our hand' some interiors have to be seen to be believed, All Pontiacs have standard safety features that include a dual master cylinder brake system with warning light, outside rearvlew mirror, and GM's energy absorbing steering column.
