Collis Secretary APPROVED: Thomas Scolire-.Chairman Edward P. .Toner-Treasurer COLOR TV by FRANK MARLO VJTS Color tele- Vision is becoming more and more popular because many of the new programs are notably morebeau- tifiil and meaningful in natural color than in black and white. Colorful dress from foreign customs, circus programs, scenic views of the world and so on have much more meaning when you see them in natural color. The children get more educational value- from them too. Color TV servicing has become more simple, too. Parts replacement are about par with black and white costs. Very soon, Color TV will be as commonplace as B & W. But don't forget that MARLO Is still busy with all other home .electronics, too.

Barnett; president of the National Strategy Information Center. "The fabric of our 'law society' is being pulled apart," he said, "by those who espouse the doctrine of 'each group decides for itself what rules to obey, and then uses force to achieve its ends.' " Mr. Burnett said that the commandos of the New Left arc creating a political pollution inhospitable to business. The "ideological fall-out" ^ from radical underground newspapers and college media is conditioning youth to dc. spise the capitalist system, he said. He suggested a new approach tb"'solve our complex problems. By breaking all precedent and surmounting all protocol, an Interprofes- sional Council could be formed in every community. It should be structured to "pool" the skills and credibility of fiuch locnl groups as the Bar-Association, Chamber of Comm'crcc, Urban League, District Attorney's Office, State Manufacturers Association, Labor Federation, Council of Social Studies Teachers, the Jaycees, and General Federation of Women's Clubs. Mr. Burnett, said that a professional staff should be set up with research and development urms producing V, plan to clean up crime, drug' addiction, student alienation, race rivalry, terrorism, etc. He added that locul industry and business should sustain it, if necessary, for a decade.

HELPFULHINTS ABOUT INFANTS SELECTING A BABYSITTER Almost as important as caring for your child is the care with which you select a baby sitter. This person, after all, will actually replace you from limp to time when you cannot ho at homo. Careful selection and instruction of a baby-sitter can help remove many feajfful afterthoughts which otherwise can ruin the parents' "night out." Obviously, choosing a babysitter you can trust fully is not always an easy job. Chances are, the person you finally decide on will not meet fully all your stringent requirements. The following suggestions should, however, aid you in obtaining a baby-sitter worthy of your trust. SITTER SEEKlNG-Threo factors influencing your sitter searching efforts arc: where you live; family needs and budgets; and, your child's individual needs. Usually, relatives, neighbors and friends, or teenagers you know are your prime candidates, in that order. This selection may be very limited, however, for the newcomers to town. "" may child sleeps, Xn eats and plays. Your family physician know "Nursemaids" (usually used during mother's first few days home from the hospital). Newcomers to larger cities may find professional babysitting services provide excellent pro-screened applicants (often bonded), but perhaps more expensive than your budget will handle. Nursing schools, usually attached to larger hospitals, may be excellent sources for trained babysitters. You may try community organizations, houses of worship or young women's clubs, (but don't begin looking here at the last minute). Placement bureaus at high schools and colleges arc always eager to find part-time jobs for students (caution: age.docs not always ensure maturity or ability to handle children). SITTER SELECTlON-Rule No. 1 in selecting a sitter is: never hire any sitter "sight u,nseen." Whenever possible, arrange an interview and possibly a practice session with any new prospective sitter. During the interview let the applicant talk about his/her spare time activities, hobbies, family background, previous work experience. From mere observation you can score the applicant on cleanliness, grooming arid genera) health. Present a few hypothetical situations (such as the . children wanting to stay up lale and watch TV), and ask the sitter what action he or she would take. Request opinion on child care, etc. and note the sitter's attitude in such areas as obedience to instruction, discipline of children, hidden grievances against past employers. SITTER'S pUTIES-The sitter should be introduced to the child and shown where the Show the sitter where you keep first-aid equipment, clothing, diapers, bathing materials, clean bedding, favorite toys. Demonstrate for the sitter food preparation, if any, feeding techniques, diapering method, soothing, favorite games, etc. Some modern infant formula products provide consistently sound nutrition—with varying degrees of convenience. Enfamil Nursette® prefilled formula bottles, for example, require no refrigeration and no warning: simply attach a sterile nipple to be ready for feeding. Enfamil® Ready-To-Use may be poured directly from the 8 fluid Oz. or 32 fluid Oz. can into a sterile bottle. Attach a sterile nipple and feed. Forms such as these help assure continued safety regardless of circumstances. Let the sitter know all your home safety rules, and what your child is likely to do at his particular age. BEFORE YOU LEAVE- Decide baby's menu. Lay out all feeding materials, bathing essentials, clothing, etc., that baby will require for the night. Always, it your child is old enough to understand, tell him that (1) you arc going out, (2) thai the sitter will take care of him, and that (3) Mommy has told the sitter exactly what she has to do. Make sure you leave the sitter a written schedule for play, meals, bath and sleep. The following information should be written near the telephone: name, address and phone number where you can be reached; name and phone number of another responsible adult to call, if you are unavailable; phone number of your physician; emergency phone numbers (disaster unit, fire and police departments). WHILE YOU AHE AWAY— If you have confidence in your sitter, phoning should be unnecessary. When you return, a serene household and a smiling sitter with children asleep usually indicate a successful sitting engagement. Your sitter should tell you of any hurts, spills or unpleasant experiences—such as a nightmare— the child might have had, (and she will if at the outset you convey belief and trust rather than blame or suggestion that the sitter is unreliable). As a courtesy, pay your sitter promptly in full, and make sure thai the sitter gets home safely. Don't forget to thank her and give her credit for a job well done. ByS.n y Sh»w A DEAR SALLY: I'm a middle- aged career woman, unmarried and very tired of people who come out with, the old cliche, "How come a good looking girl like you has never married?" The thing is, I'm perfectly happy as I am . a good income, a lovely apartment, beautiful clothes, a gorgeous car and a great vacation trip every year. I consider myself even more fortunate when I see the life some of the married women in my office live — rushing through their lunch hours, shopping for household items, hurrying homeward at the end of the day to shoj> for groceries to prepare meals for their families, do their housework, laundry, and ironing. They surely look beat! I like my uncluttered life. I'm not expecting any answer from you - just getting something off my chest, that's all. FREE DEAR FREE: Here's an answer anyway. Most of us married women like our lives as they are, too. And if you've never tried It, don't knock it. DEAR SALLY: I'm a young man of. 19 with a mother problem. She doesn't think any of the girls I date is good enough for me. This one doesn't know how to dress, that one comes from an "Inferior" background, another is too loud or domineering. She often arranges dates for me with the daughters of some of her friends and invariably I can't stand them and when I tell her so she claims I'm too young to discriminate this way. Am I really too young to select my own friends and to judge them for myself? JUNIOR. DEAR JUNIOR: Certainly not. Sit down with Mom and tell her you appreciate her interest in your welfare - but please, you don't need a "booking igent," and you don't need a critical analysis of the girls you date. DEAR SALLY: Our 16 year^old son has a very distinguished family name - yet I think very few people know what his real name is because just about everybody calls him "Slats." Furthermore, I don't thinkIknow the real name of any of the boys he brings to our home - all I ever hear is "Bud," "Red," "Porky," or "Mac." Don't you agree with me that such undignified nicknames can prove a serious handicap in the subsequent career of a young man? WORRIED MOM. DEAR WORRIED MOM: One boy we all remember nicknamed "Ike" did all right. Stop your worrying, Mom. If Slats has the ability, he'll succeed and I've never heard yet of a nickname that proved a handicap. DEAR SALLY: Would it be all right for me to ask another girl to "fill in" as a bridesmaid at my wedding? I was to have four bridesmaids but now one of them has asked to be excused because dtJhe sudden death of her father. EMERGENCY. DEAR EMERGENCY: I'd hesitate to do this for fear of creating some embarrassment or hurt feelings on the part of the "substitute" for not having been asked in the first place. Surely you can have just as pretty a wedding with three bridesmaids as with four, can't you?
