Get Yourself A Diet for Christmas BIythevllIe (Ark.) Courier News — Saturday, December 3, 1966 Page Three By AILEEN SNODDY Newspaper Enterprise Astn. NEW YORK - (NBA) - If more people would give a thought to what's between their shoulders and feet during the next six weeks, they might lose some weight. The period, laughingly called "Hie holidays," Is an endurance contest laced with food and drink. But, says a businesswoman who once belonged to the ranks of the excessively overweight, "Holidays, birthdays and vacations really aren't fattening if a person keeps in mind a desire to be glimmer." This desire led Jean Nidetch ef Little Neck, N. Y., to drop 72 pounds five years ago. She now throws her 142 - pound weight into the problem of obesity and overeating through her organization called Weight Watchers. Incorporated in 1963, the club now Is in 16 states, with international members, too Mrs. Nidelch finds that worry ft •hmil ovrocc nnnnris S f nan- we '6 nl """' HOST FAMILIES whose members are overweight eat too much. about excess pounds is finan cially fruitful in the United States. Those who want to w a t ch their weight under her aegis pay a $3 registration fee and $2 a week to attend all the classes they can stuff into their schedules. However, unlike ma n y who turn food faddism into money without truly h e 1 ping those in need, Mrs. Nidetch's followers rely upon a sound menu of high protein, fruits and all the low - calorie vegetables you can eat. The basic theory is to lose weight and maintain the loss, which doctors say is the only with a buddy system similar to Alcoholics Anonymous — a quick phone call for help when the urge for chocolate mousse pops up — Weight Watchers now rely upon weight - losing cM{ back on wiiat you eat in three well- balanced meals a day. Their greatest concern, though, is with individuals and companies promoting and selling health or miracle foods. Last year it was estimated 10 million Americans contributed to swindlers and crackpots who claim that most diseases are caused by faulty diet, that American soils are impoverished and the food produced is not nutritional, that we all need more vitamins and minerals because these are gleaned from our overprocessed food.

The California Canners and Growers, with more than 57 low-calorie items, estimates the 1966 market was $300 million and will continue to grow.

(This latter group of diets is considered the most effective for healthful maintenance of weight loss.) Tried any of these lately? Remember the holidays are here. Push away from that table heaped with food after eating lightly and you won't have to be a faddist. As Mrs. Nidetch says, "Your stomach doesn't know it's Thanksgiving or Christmas."

She doesn't wear rouge or lipstick. She doesn't smoke. "And I don't dance at all — except in'my mind always," she said.

Since then she h a s met with an international acclaim as a recording star reminiscent of the quick rise of the Beatles, Elvis Presley, and Barbra Streisand. The French government, which she says now takes 65 per cent of her earnings, considers her a national resource. "Everything happened to me go easily," she said. "But success forces you to be too concentrated in yourself. It makes you egocentric, and I am afraid that is now my biggest fault.' Francoise is pale and tall and lovely and has green eyes, a quick wit, and long hair that falls around her shoulders in an auburn mist. She came here for a visit after making her English-speaking debut as a star in the MGM-Cin- erama film, "Grand Prix. Misi Hardy is a style setter in dress as well as in song in Europe.

"I want to know a lot of things — everything about everything, but I know that is impossible," she said. "I hope that in the future I'll find something else to do, but I don't know yet what. I don't feel clever enough to be a writer, ! and I never wanted to be an actress." Francoise, who accompanies herself on the guitar, also keeps a staff of five musicians on her payroll. She herself composes about half of the songs she records or sings on television. This is her philosophy: "I am too young yet to know if life has a meaning. But I believe it is better to regret what you have done than what you haven't done. Who doesn't risk anything, has nothing." To her, motherhood is the finest expression of creativity. But she says that at present she has no marriage plans. "In France, we do not marry as readily as you do here," she •aid. Briefs MIAMI, Fla.

My dresses done up so fresh and neat And pretty little shoes upon my feet All the childhood diseases she nursed me through Her sleepless nights have not been few Caring for me when she needed rest Yes, her love has surely stood fte test At times, I'm sure there were things she needed That she did not get because I pleaded. For a beautiful gown for some dance or other Yes, I got the dress • that's my Mother. Never wanting to let me down So she sewed for days on my pretty gown. When my boyfriend came to call Her expression showed it was worth it all When he said, "in that gown, you'll be the Belle of the Ball" I remember, too how she chauf- fered us Happy and cheerful without a fuss Think of the many miles that Mom has driven, Not to mention the precious time she's given. [ had blanket parties by the number But for giggling young girls there is little slumber Still, Mom carried on so patiently Making them feel welcome as could be There were always friends coming in and out They enjoyed my home, there is no doubt Around Mom, they seemed to feel at ease As she's always tired so hard to please At times, our home looked more 'like a dorm Because my Mom was cordial and warm. GIs Want More WACs in Viet Nam By TOM TTEDE Newspaper Enterprise Assn. NEW YORK - (NEA) - Of the more than 350,000 Americans assigned to war duty in Viet Nam today, less than .0005 per cent are women, This naturally is cause for some consternation, especially among the majority. But in many cases the men aren't lamenting the lack of feminine companionship. They •want more women but for strictly professional reasons. Says one returning Viet veteran: "I got so damn sick of walking into military offices and seeing several dozen hulking soldiers sitting in stenographers' chairs, typing letters and spilling ink eradicator on their jungle fatigues." Says another: "Maybe women shouldn't be carrying M-16 rifles. But there are many war jobs &ey could do ... and spring desk - ridden foot soldiers at the same time." The point seems to be that women in the armed services — the WACs, WAVEs, WAFs and Marines — aren't doing their share in Viet Nam; or, rather, aren't being asked to do it. Statistics support this conclusion. The Women's Army Corps has 10,000 enlisted members in uniform this year but only 25 to 27 of them are presently serving in the war zone. The ratios are even skimpier for the other services. On the other hand, there is nothing to indicate that the gals aren't willing. Indeed, a lady lieutenant stationed at Ft, McClellan, Ala., insists: "Most of the girls that I know in t h e WACs would go to .Saigon tomorrow, if they were asked." Would she? "Most certainly." And would she fight? "That's not a WAC's job." Actually, the prospect of women in war shouldn't be startling. They've always participated in U.S. confrontations. At times, in fact, and despite no formal request, they've even spilled blood in combat, as witness the early Indian wars. Further, it's conceivable they could fight again. "We know that other nations use their women in battle," says the Ft. TWO WACS go about their administrative work—far from Viet Nam. McClellan officer. "But usually | agree. it is because they are forced to I Especially the 99.9995 per cent In Mom, confide I felt I could always Nothing from her did I have to hide Being a younger Mother, too She-could always see our point of view My boyfriends, too, thought Mom was great When they came to call, I'd sit and wait. While they chatted and laughed over coffee and tea I began to wonder - Just which one they had come to see Was it Mother or was it me? Whenever things didn't go just right Mom helped me see in a different light Just have faith honey, she would say "Remember Rome wasn't built in a day" defend their own soil. "Now. if the Viet Nam thing ever expanded into a global affair, and we in this country were attacked in our homes ... well, then I'm sure the WACs and other women would pick up arms and meet the enemy just like the men." * * * Short of such an emergency, | however, the WACs offer their country only logistical and administrative services. In a normal three - year hitch they learn military manner, physical education, job specialties and even "hup, two, three, four," but little else in common with traditional Army duty. They carry no weapons, command no men and learn no combat strategy. And they lose their stripes or brass if they become pregnant. Policy is that mothers should be in the home and it's rigidly enforced. But none of these differences explains the anemic numbers of WACs in Southeast Asia. And many of the ladies complain about It. : I think we should be there in force," says one. "I think that 500 to 1,000 more women could contribute a great deal to the war effort."
