MONDAY, JULY 6,1053 BLYTHEVrLI.E (AHK.) COURIKR NEWS PACT! THRU! Beat the Heat with Ice Bags Under Arms, Wife's Surprises By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) — Summer's biggest problem is heat waves. If one is coming your way, don't get nervous. Keep cool you should treat a heat wave like an ocean wavve; ride with it — don't fight it. Women know best how to deal with heat waves. They simply pull down the shades, peel off most of their clothes, and lie clown and manicure their fingernails until better weather conies along. The only exception are the 19,000,000 ladies who have outside jobs and - can't stay home. But how can a mere male outwit a heat wave? Well, here are a few^ tested recipes a thoughtful fellow* cgn use to beat the heat: 1. Imitate the givls. Strip down until all you have on is the least the law allows in public. If ten men in every city had the courage to wear shorts to work, soon every man in America who wasn't knock-kneed would follow suit. 2. Clean out your pockets. This will cut the average guys' weight down five pounds. All you really need to carry in summer is your keys, your busfare and your social Identification card. Remembei, every extra ounce you pack hears up your blood. 3. If you dont' wear a collar, you can't get hot under it. Remember Ice R'.vgs 4. if you work in. a high class place where you have to wear aj jacket, strap an ice bag under each j armpit. This will do wonder*, for you, and you can get ice cube refills from the nearest drugstore.! x You'd be amazed to know how many J } ment of distinction wear ice bags unrier .their armpits these days. 5. Avoid useless remarks like, "what's new?" In a heat wave .what! else could be new? Anyway, most small talk is Just hot air, and hot air is what you are trying to escape from. 6. When you come home, take off your shoes and shirt and stretch out on the sofa and ask your wife to fan you. How do you know ehe won't do it Wives are always surprising husbands—one way or another. 7. Don't argue with your wife under any circumstances, not even if she hogs the electric fan. Hot tempers make the blood boil. Most police calls during heat waves are made to separate married folks locked in sizzling quarrels. Also, If the little lady break a plate over your head, you will find that wounds hurt more in hot weather. Don't Run 8. If you are watching television and a beer commercial flashes on, don't run to the kitchen to get yourself a can of brew. Walk, slowly. 9. One of the best ways to cool off before going to bed—as every bachelor knows—is to sit on a chair with your feet in the refrigerator while you read a book on polar explorations. If your wife objects, be reasonable about it. Move over and let her put her feet in the refrigerator, too. The more tender experiences that married couples share, the more they have to remember later, 10. If the heat does become unbearable, follow the example, of the dog, man's best friend. The dog cools himself by sticking out his tongue and panting, but the process isn't patented. Stick out your own tongue as far as you can, and pant hard and rapidly 100 times. Naturally, if you feel a chill coming on, stop after 50 pants. You don't want to have to fight a summer cold in the middle of a heat wave. Even If panting doesn't seem to cool you off quite as well as it does rover, it has another advantage. II the boss sees you doing it, he is pretty certain to let you take the rest of the day off. Then you can beat the heat at the ball game. Trouble with Pork ANADARKO, Okla. (/P) — Policeman Bill Johnson found two pigs running loose in the northeast residential district and spent a puffing few minutes before he roped them. Then the frightened porkers dragged Johnson several more blocks before he finally got them loaded into a borrowed truck.

Wyoming Men Comb Mountains For Oklahoma Lawyer and Sons Port Isabel, in the southeastern part of the state, and Texline, in the northwestern part, are separated by 931 miles of highways in Texas. PINEDALE, Wyo. W')—Experienced mountaineers combed the 10,000- foot-hlgh Wind River Bang today lor trace of Gordon Rainey, <0, Oklahoma City attorney, and his two sons. Searchers fear Rainey has been injured and his sons, Gordon Jr., 13, and Tom, 8, are leaderless. They went into the area on horseback last Monday on a fishing trip and made camp near Lake Vera in the Bridger National Forest. Floyd Bousman, a guide and owner of the Boulder Lake Ranch, who helped them set up camp and then returned to his ranch 12 miles away, checked the camp Wednesday and again Friday. He said the camp of the naval reserve officer was deserted and clothing still hung on a makeshift laundry line. With fishing tackle gone, he presumed Wednesday the group had gone fishing. With the camp still deserted on Friday, Bousman and a forest servr ice worker searched the area. A Wyoming civil patrol plane combed the region yesterday. No coats had been taken from the campsite, the rancher said, and the fishermen apparently have been in lie wilderness six nights in freez- ng temperatures. Bousman said the father, belie _j to be an experienced outdoor man, had a detailed map of the area. "I presume he could have fovuid his way out had he been physically ahle." the guide added. He said ho was afraid Rainey has been injured and unjible to lead his sons back to the camp.
