By CYNTHIA I.OWRY AP Newsfeaturcs Writer The time has come to start ruining checlcs by writing "51" Instead of "52" on the date lines. It is also, for some reason or other, a time of prophecy nnd forecast. Let the experts and the big brains concern themselves with' Important forecasts on subjects such as war. International agreement or lack of same, of politicking. I propose to confine my looking ahead primarily to trivia. For Instance, I predict that the current vogue for short-clipped hair on women, usually referred to 03 a "poodle cut," will be superceded by a rnge for long hair and psyche knots. I also predict that the nation's hairdressers—for whom the crew-cut, was the answer to the Inroads of the home permanent— won't like this a bit. There will emerge at least 75 new diets,"all of which will be published under a title resembling, "Eat —and Get Thin," and they will be tried out-for short periods by some 50 million women. Hnughly 49 million will temporarily lose two pounds each before abandoning the diet. Cartoonists will continue to drnv, jokes about women's hats and mud packs. Radio and television comedians will continue to mnke the same old quips about mothers-in- law. sour treatment, A few more women will get them selves elected and appointed to important Jobs In Industry, business and government and each will be held'up as an example of the for- wanl strides of womankind. There will be the usual amount of talk about equality of the sexes, and most women will be bored by it. Women who receive paychecks will continue to loathe being referred to as "career women," and the search for a synomym for "housewife" will go on unabated. The marriage rate and the birth rate will go up; everyone will continue to hate war and wish for peace. And the rumbling heard In every home in the land will DC grousing about income taxes. * RUTH MILLETT You Can't Run Away From Household Woes By RUTH MILLETT, NBA Staff Writer By Sue Burnett Such fun to sew, and so complet dainty dress and inirtenvcnr for a tiny miss, and ft romper fo brother that's as simple as pic t- sew.

Someone will come up with a new theory about the common cold. There will also be a highly touted new remedy for curing same. Most of us will still suffer through the same old cold course of sneezes, snuffles find coughs. Psychiatry will Blood Will Always Tell, Supreme Court Rules LAUSANNE, SwiUerlnnd. f/P) — The Swiss Supreme Court has ruled thnt a taxi driver must not drink any alcohol while at work—even outside the country. A Zurich taxi driver recently took some customers on an all-day trip to BreEcnz in Austria, where he had a good lunch and a good bottle cf wine. He knew thnt in Switzerland taxi drivers were not allowed! to drink while working. Hut this f | was Austria, he argued, so Swi'Sfi; laws don't apply, j On the v;ay back to Zurich, he' scratched the lender of another car and a blood-test, routine procedure in Switzerland, showed that his hlocd contained 0.1 per cent of alcohol. The Supreme Court turned down his appeal against a five-day Jail sentence on the grounds that he broke the law, not by drinking wine in Austria, but by bringing.U, back to Switzerland in his blood. "There should be no dull, drab days In family living" says an expert on child training in the magazine, "Today's Health." Being only human and often an overworked human at that, it Is too much to expect Mama to make each day in some way festive or a little out of the ordinary. Yet most women coultkdo more than they do to reduce tne number of dull, drab days in their homes. The trouble Is. too many women think that their only answer to dullness and drabness Is to get away from home. "1 couldn't stand the house another minute" a woman will say. Another will admit: "The kids were driving me crazy, fa I. decided to spend the afternoon in town." There Is nothing deplorable about a woman's wanting to escape from home now and then. But a woman is making a mistake if she thinks escape Irom home Is the only answer to the boredom of family life. Escape Doesn't Solve Problem Because her escape doesn't make life more fun for her husband or children. All her escape does Is give her enough change so that she feels equal to the task of enduring the boredom a while longer. The answer, of course, is for the woman of the house to figure ou other ways than running away to overcome dull, drab days at home What she needs and the family needs is not Just escape, but change of pace. The family needs more variec ecrtation. It n«d« me** . trie-moment hospit»li»y. K niwta • project to work on, «om«thtn« that all will enjoy when M It tcoonv- plished.

Ceramics Shipment Arrives in New York NEW YORK (AP>—The first ol an extensive shipment of ceramics, . the work of Japanese artiste, is on.'*tj ,; display at the Pottery of All Na. • firms Shop here. The pieces are the work of c«- ramlclsts Hammada and Narul. Their work is said to combine an almost crude technique with sudden precise attention to detail. The character of the clay available in Japan may account for some of the pitted and pebbly texture that oth- , er ceramists find difficult to achieve. Anti-Chinese SentimeiU Runs High in Thailand NEW DELHI, India (AP)—Anti- Chinese sentiment mns high in Thailand's new labor movement, an observer of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions reported after a tour of Southeast Asia. "The racial rivalry which Is very keen in Thailland is strongly reflected In the trade union movement." Govardlian.Mapara said in a report submitted to the I. C. F. T. u. He declared thai some rice mill and dock Ittborercrs among Thailand's three million Chinese population had been organized under the banner of the Communist-controlled Central Labor Union in the early post-war period. "Employees are almost all Chinese. The whole economic life of the nation isju the hands of Chinese.
