But these were among the many presents shipped hometoBuck- ingliam Palace from her45-day Canadian tour. . Prince Philip got some weir- dies too, but also some useful presents. Polo sticks, for instance, which can go tato hfs stable paraphernalia, tobeused later. And a motorboat for mooring on the loch near the royal holiday home, Palmoral Castle. Every tuna the Queen «xs touring she receives boatloads of gifts from admirers, loyal subjects, her hosts, little boys who ve carved up the dandiest little knick-knacks, and little girls who've strung the prettiest beads. Wliat luppens to It all? Some of the gifts, of course, do get used But by far the majority wind up in storage. And that's another problem. Some of the Queen's wedding presents of 12 years ago are still in crates stored in a disused garden pavilion inthegro- inds of Windsor Castle The pavilion was recently cleared out for Just that purpose. Included in this collection are elaborate pieces of furniture and outsized ornamentsforwhichno suitable house-room has ever been found.

What clothing will be needed —how about spending money-'where will the aew itulffint live —how about the;.laundry problem--and will fledgling eat properly after lifting the nest -are the thoughts most often in the family's mind. And one of the big questions is~how about transportation? Can the family budget afford a puddlejumper for the new collegian? • . The answer to that last question is that cars are no longer a status symbol and are rapidly becoming passe on many campuses. Limited parking, king- sized traffic jams and indifferent scholastic performances by car owners are combining to move colleges and universities to ban cars to undergraduates. Schools forbidding cars include Skidmore,, Smith, Southern Illinois University, Central Michigan College and Knox College. Others prohibit the use of cars between classes, meaning that students may be forced to walk the width of a sprawling campus, unless they have a bike, while still other report that car restrictions are anticipated for undergraduate students in the not-so-distant future. Two-wheelers are preferred by many colleges and universities, particularly those with a certain amount of rustic charm, . where streets and lanes were not designed for modern traffic loads. ' ' Many colleges, in fact, encourage the use of bikes on the campus, and have done so for many years School authorises are enthusiastic about student useof bikes because they help the student obtain a generous share of the exercise necessary for well- rounded growth and maximum classroom performance. Indifferent classroom performance among car owners is another reason educators are Interested in restricting campus use of cars. A recent study made in Idaho showed that not a singlestraight-A student owned a car; only 15 percent of B students owned automobiles! 41 percent of C students were drivers, as were 71 percent of the D students. Some 83 percent of the failures were car owners. - ' Students enjoy bike riding in schools where bikes are accented. They know it provides exercise essential to maximum mental effort. And two-wheelers provide no problem in garaging or licensing, and maintenance is rapid, slmpleand inexpensive if an infrequent mechanical failure is experienced.

"~ " • } ~-'" i & c Surprisingly enough, not with your wardrobe, but with YOU Rate yourself with your grooming, if you're beatuifully groomed, every item of clo- tlung you wear takes on more glamour. Posture: Shoulders up, tummy in—and "stand tall!" Walk: For the siren part in the class play, the swing-and- sway is 0. K. But nowhere else, please! Here's a simple trick: pretend you're with the boy-you'd-most-like - to -date, entering the ballroom-you'd- most-like-to-enter. Now WALK with him! Figure: Serious underweight or overweight problems are medical affairs. Butchaseaway those bulges with calorie counting and exercise. Special note: A girdle and bra are "musts" to make the lines of vour clothes look better. Mate-up; Accent, yes, but easy does It! Leave the heavy make-up to the oldestcrs. As a special present, askforavisit to a "beauty consultant." They're delighted to help you look prettier. But "face" is more important than "point." It's your greeting card; and greetings start with a radiant smile. Hair: Experiment with styling; soft hairdos for thin faces, bouffant (not droopy!) bangs' for high foreheads. Steerclear of tight curls,.too-long hair or any extreme that's out of fashion—and unglamorous. And pin curls are out of place everywhere, except In the privacy of your bedroom. Remember—never leave the house expecting to see "noonelknow." You will everytime. Last, always haveallofyour— iair, nails, skin—clean, fresh and lovely. But always.
