All this past year a youthful male neighbor of ours has been parading shoulder-length tresses in and out of our apartment elevator. Yesterday he visited the barber and had them cut off. Noting his changed appearance, I cried, "Oh Bill, how really handsome you looi? with your h«ir short!" I succeeded in conveying my admiration so sincer- tell us how you feel about it. wonderful in order to get him there. Granting that Bill is right, this flowing tresses passion among our teen-aged sons seems to be just another one of those breal<down in communication circuits between them and us.

Dallas Cowboys Scout Illinois Wesleyan Star BLOOMINGTON, 111. (AP) Quarterback Steve Laub of lUi- nois Wesleyan opened his college football career as a defensive specialist, closed it with a batch of records and now face.s the possibility of a professional career. No less an emissary than former quarterback great Bobby Layne was sent by tlie Dallas Cowboys to watch Laub in action this season. Lisle Blackbourn of the Green Bay Packers was among other scouts who watched Laub perform this year. Laub 's records alone would warrant a look by pro scouts. The 6-foot-l, 185-poundcr set nine College Conference of Illinois records. He started out as a defensive back his freshman year and tlien took over the offense. In three •easons he completed 282 passes in 497 attempts for 4,004 yards and 48 touchdowns. Wesleyan Coach Don Larson was told by one scout tliat Laub and Bob Griese of Purdue were tha two best pro prospects in the Midwest, The fact that Layne and • Blackbourn were sent to scout Laub indicates Dallas and Green Bay think highly of the man who guided Wesleyan to an overall three year record of 204-1 including a Cd champion- •hlp last year and a tie for sec*> end place this season. However, if the pros want Laub they'll have to wait until MABBIN' SAM ABOUT TO PEBFORM A WEDDIN' IN "LI'L ABNEB"—With the help of the three Scraggs (Terry Kent, Davul Clayton, and Kevin Davis) and their guns, Marryin' Sam (Mark Wheeler) reluctantly starts to marry Daisy Mao (Ginger Coats) and Earthquake McGoon (Bruce Clin) in "LI'L ABNER" playing at the lilgh school auditorium Thursday and Friday night at 8:00.
