Sources: Center for the American . Woman and Politics at Rutgers University; state legislative offices eas, for both sociological and economic reasons. The increasing number of women in the work force not only enlarges the candidate pool, it also politicizes issues that are traditionally female, such as child care. "I think as the two-income families become more entrenched, couples see as important education and child care, care of the elderly and the use of our tax dollars. Women identify with those issues more as there are more in the work force," said Frances Savage, a second-term Mississippi lawmaker. And as the South becomes more urban and more prosperous, Mrs. Felton said, female candidates find more support from the kind of upscale urban' constituency she represents. "Professional men and successful businessmen think it's a good investment to have women in office," she said, "because they are not going to give up their Riled GGP right wing putting Bush on notice ;By Julia Malone -Journal-Constitution Washington Bureau WASHINGTON - At a party : just outside the nation's capital, ; political activists crowded around a cake with the words "Two More Years" on top. The group, marking Tuesday's election, wore buttons declaring their various choices for replacing President Bush. The partygoers weren't Democrats; they were Republicans, furious because Mr. Bush had reneged on his "no new taxes" pledge. So angry that they would prefer Housing Secretary Jack F. Kemp, hard-line conservative commentator Pat Buchanan or retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver L. North. "I don't think there's any doubt that Bush will be challenged in the primary," declared Howard Phillips, a longtime conservative leader. He said he is ui gumming a urn u u& ijr viivt if the U.S. Taxpayers Party. Richard Viguerie, host of the election-night party, said Mr. Bush's switch on taxes was "the last straw." Mr. Bush "spent the campaign of '88 saying, 'Trust me, I'm a Ronald Reagan conservative,' " complained Mr. Viguerie. "He just lied to us." Mr. Viguerie, head of United Conservatives of America, said he would welcome a GOP challenge by Mr. Buchanan, former candidate Pat Robertson or outgoing Sen. William Armstrong of Colorado. As for the president, Mr. Viguerie chided, "The man has no principles. He's like a boat on a lake with all sail and no rudder." Mr. Bush and other Republicans brush off the harsh talk from the party's right wing. "There's not any discontent among conservatives outside the Beltway" that circles Washington, said Charles Black, acting head of the Republican National Committee. He predicted there would be no challenge to Mr. Bush in the 1992 primaries. Weight Loss Surprises Researchers WASHINGTON - A nutrition organization was hopeful that a nutritionally complete "hi-tech" food tablet would help erase world hunger problems, until study revealed that one of the Ingredients could cause significant weight loss without dieting. Researchers In Europe found that an Ingredient In the aptly named product Food Source One actually caused people to lose weight, even though specifically Instructed to alter normal eating patterns, according to one study published In the prestigious British Journal of Nutrition. Researchers in an earlier study had speculated that the weight loss was due to a decrease in the Intestinal absorption of calories. - While the development of Food Source One, a project of National Dietary Research, would not be Used to successfully fulfill its original goat, the discovery has been a windfall for overweight people. A Daytona Beach, 1990 Omtcron IntornMlontl Florida woman fighting a weight battle i for 12 years used the product on the recommendation of her physician and lost 30 pounds. She stated, "Not only have I lost 30 pounds but my cholesterol has dropped from 232 to 143. 1 have two closets full of clothes which I have1 not fit me in two years that I can now wear."

Candidate Penn Payne, who lost her bid to replace state Sen. Michael Egan, said being a woman was "no detriment" in her north Atlanta district "It's a well-educated district and affluent and urban, and it's certainly on the cutting edge of where women are politically," Ms. Payne explained. But political observers say the job of state legislator or county commissioner still is coveted in the rural South, resulting in a lower turnover rate and fewer openings for minority or female candidates. "If you live in a small town, if you're in the state Legislature, you really are an important person. You really control important patronage, more so than in the North," Mr. Arlington said. "People hold those seats. They don't want to give them up." The same Southern culture that breeds respect for local politicians tends to discourage political savvy in women. They do not have the traditional support systems that men may have and urban women are learning to develop, say some of the successful female politicians. "We don't have the money. Let's call a spade a spade," said Cathey Steinberg, newly elected state senator from DeKalb County, who lost a 1988 statewide race for the Public Service Commission. "I couldn't raise a couple of . million dollars because we women don't have the support system," Ms. Steinberg said. .llildllUKUMMIuilUKiAMikilOiluUhllt. rf x A mm mm Hancock Sod X' r" Offers You Service With Excellence V" Professional site preparation Free 2 yr.
