May Be 'Biological Resentment' By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - Do men dislike women? Many women feel they do. "I know my husband loves me, because he voluntarily told me so himself once—20 years ago," said one wife. "But I have always wondered if he really liked me, too. I don't feel that most men actually are fond of women or enjoy their company. "There must be something 1 about us they resent. Perhaps it's a biological resentment, the fact that we are able to bear children and they can't.' Oh, dear no, lady. How wrong can the feminine intuition be? Men have enough trouble putting up with children after they are boni; they have no hidden desire to bear them. This race- perpetuating chore they are happy enough to leave to womankind. While men have no desire to be women and often distrust them in general, there are many things they secretly respect and admire about women —or even envy. They just rarely express them aloud. What is it that men admire about their wives—or even about most Women? Well, there are several qualities. Such as: Man admires woman because she is generally less fickle and more steadfast in loyalty than he is. Man admires woman because, while she is more vocal about petty annoyances, she usually can bear the great disasters and continuing ordeals of life with a silent unflinching courage that puts to shame his own yowls of self-pitty about fate. Man admires woman because she can find more happiness and excitement In small things than he can—a bit of chatty gossip, trading menus over the telephone, buying a new hat, the presence of fresh flowers in a living room vase, the soft glow of candlelight at dinner, even though the meal be warmed- over hash. WhaJ he grunts at, TAKING NO CHANCES CHICAGO {AP) — Early tire chain sales in the Midwest may indicate there's a rough winter ahead. Roy G. Oliver, chairman of the S. G. Taylor Chain Co., Hammond. Intl., said sales of chains to dealers and distributors are running ahead of normal. He .-([tributes the early interest in tire chains to the fact that motorists have experienced severe snow and ice conditions in various parts of the country the last couple of winters. "So dealers now are apparently figuring old fashioned winters are on the way back and they want to be ready for another bonanza for lire chains," Oliver said. she exclaims over, for she has the great gift of brightening her world with tidbits of pleasure. Man admires wqman because of her endless quest for perfection. If there is to be a better or more gracious world, it will be her doing, not his. He is often willing to compromise and accept the second rate. She never is. A woman, rich or poor, always has the desire to go through this world first class. If a thing isn't right, she tries to put it right. Finally, man admires woman because, like Mt. Everest, she is there—ever inviting, ever challenging him to prove himself. Why then, if men do admire women so much, don't they tell them so more often? The answer lies in simple male psychology. If a man too often told a woman of his respect for her feminine strengths, it would seem to him like he'd be confessing his own masculine weaknesses. And what guy likes to do that? December Retail Sales In Texas Keep Top Spot YEARS f AUSTIN (AP) — Texas' December retail sales maintained the high level of activity on which the state economy operated throughout the year, University of Texas economists reported. Total retail sales in Texas during 1%8 increased 10 per cent over 1967, said Dennis W. Cooper, research associate with the Bureau of Business Re- searsli at the University of Texas. This increase is significantly larger than the comparable 7 and 3 per cent growth rates recorded in 1U66 and 1967, he said. Sales of durable goods provided the bulk of the increase by registering a 17 per cent increase over the 1967 sales total. Sales of nondurable recorded a U per cent rise from 19C7, Cooper said. The Texas total retail sales figure of $1,972,000,000 for December represents an 18 per cent increase over the November total and a 7 per cent increase over December 1967. Unadjusted statewide sales figures for nondurable during December show a majority of increases — a result of heavy Christmas shopping. Texas' eight largest cities all reported increases in retail sales. Austin reported a 24 per cent increase from November 1968 to December 1968 and a 9 per cent increase from the same period a year ago. Dallas reported a 1G per cent monthly increase from November to December and an 11 per cent increase from December 1967 to December 1968. El Paso reported a 9 per cent increase from November to December and an 11 per cent increase over a year ago. Fort Worth retail sales went up 13 per cent from November to December 1968 and 2 per cent from December 1967 to December 1968. Houston re ported sales went up 34 per cent in the November -December monthly period and were up 6 per cent from a year ago. San Antonio reported increases of 11 per cent and 4 per cent respectively for sales from November to December and from a year ago. The bureau said an analysis of factors which will affect retail sales during early 1969 produces an uncertain picture. First tree products used by man were fruits, nuts and fuel wood. Monday.

It was stateside doctors would determine whether or not LAW OFFICIALS PROPOSE ANTI-CRIME MEASURES AUSTIN (AP)—A group of law officers, judges and lawyers has recommended a lengthy anti-crime program to the legislature, including raising the minimum penalty for murder with malice from 2 to 20 years. The Texas Law Enforcement Legislative Council also pro posed tougher laws for dealing with juveniles, admission of oral confessions and more prison time for convicts before they can be considered for parole. Convicts are eligible for parole after serving a third of their sentences, including "good time" credits for obeying prison rules. The council said the law should be changed to require prisoners to serve half their sentences before coming up for parole. Instead of the present complicated system for deciding whether a juvenile will be tried as an adult, the council said grand juries should make this decision when they consider a case. Oral confessions are not admissible in Texas criminal trials unless they lead to the fruits of the crime. '"ITiere are many instances BAMA on record of major crimes in which the defendant made an oral admission that he was the guilty party, but refused to sign a written confession," the council said. The council also said Texas should scrap the present system of allowing a convicted defendant to decide whether the jury or the judge shall determine his punishment, except where the state seeks the death penalty. The council said, penalties should be left exclusively to judges, except in death cases, as they are "better equipped to make the proper determination." The council said the use of a gun in any offense should be made an automatic felony with a high minimum penalty and no parole or probation. "It is apparent to us that it is the unlawful use of firearms against which legislation should be directed...we feel that this legislation would have a strong deterrent effect," it said. The council also said the legislature should make it a felony for any person already charged or convicted of committing a felony offense to possess away from his home any gun with a barrel shorter than 12 inches. Other recommendations included: —a constitutional change allowing judges to deny bail to anyone who commits a crime while free on bond in a felony case. Bond also could be denied to persons a judge feels is likely to jump bail, who is "inherently dangerous to himself or others," or whom the court finds is likely to receive more than 15 years imprisonment at his trial. —permitting wiretapping upon the authorization of a judge in investigations of major crimes. —transfer of convicted persons to the state prison while their appeals are pending. They now await the outcome of appeals in county jails. —mandatory jail sentences for drunk drivers, coupled with an "implied consent" law that says licensed drivers automatically consent to breath, blood or other chemical tests if suspected of driving while intoxicated. —Adequate courts. —a new law allowing persons to be indicted for more than one offense at a time.

Fame first came to Weegee in 1945 with his first book, "Naked City." It Is a collection of his photographs of New York taken during his midnight-to-dawn solo forays covering murders, fires and assorted news. In subsequent years, his first book was followed by "Naked Hollywood," "Weegee's People," "Weegee by Weegee," "Wee- gee's Secrets" and "Weegee's Creative Camera." Weegee would stand out in any crowd. He was never without a camera in hand and bag over one shoulder and a stubby cigar clutched in yellowed teeth. Paunchy, he wore a suit that always looked liv'ed-and- slept-in. I first met Weegee—real name: Arthur Fellig—about 42 years ago when he was a darkroom printer and I was a photo retoucher for a newspaper syndicate. His sloppy suit and his drooping cigar didn't interfere with his darkroom know-how. Weegee, who lived in a dingy tenement room next to police headquarters would go out on police calls after work. He focused on the oddball sights surrounding life, death and accidents in Manhattan. Finally, he turned to full-time freelancing, a specialist in capturing the big city's nocturnal dramas. "Naked City" brought him wide acclaim both as a photographer and as an oddball character. It also brought assignments from high fashion magazines and top publications. Our working association ended when I joined The Associated Press. Years later, when I met REMEMBER THOSE YOU LOVED WITH A MEMORIAL GIFT TO THE I AMERICAN CANCER I SOCIETY 4 him, his greeting was: "You know, of course, that I'm a genius now." Then, over a cup of coffee, he said he was besieged by wouid- be photographers wanting to study his methods and technique. "I picked a pupil—a society dame," he chuckled. "That's a sight . . . dropped off daily at my tenement in a chauffered limousine! I let her carry' some of my stuff wherever I'm going —up to Harlem, maybe, or the lower East Side. That's quite a change from my days as a darkroom printer," "Naked City" was bought by a movie studio with Weegee as its technical director. In Hollywood, he had a brief fling as an actor. He played himself. Since it was a land of fantasy, he invented a distorting lens to do it justice or, as he put it, "to put Hollywood in true perspective. "I tried to get it made by an optical firm," he reported. "They said I was a nut. So I had the elements ground separately. The lens worked! I was no longer a nut. They even agreed I was a genius." The fantastic lens could distort, twist, stretch or compress subject matter in both still and moving pictures. It was rented by studios for $1,000 a day with Weegee as chaperone and guard so that no one could pry the lens apart. On his return East after five years, his photo impressions made book N'o. 2, -'Naked Hollywood." In his later years, Weegee tilt ed his imagination in new diret tions in color and abstract phi; tography, lectured at photo gatherings and turned out his other books.
