Putnam Sons If you're a person who likes fantasies, "What It Costs 1 ' is the book you've been waiting for. Interested in your own customized jet, a skiing weekend with Jean-Claude Killy a year's supply of caviar, a face lift by the world's most celebrated plastic surgeon? Look no further.

Dr. Kugler's Seven Keys To A Longer Life by Dr. Hans J Kugler, Stein & Day 1977. Within the pages of this book are seven basic concepts that, according to a leading gerontologist, can increase one's lifespan by 30 to 40 years. Dr. Hans J. Kugler makes the latest scientific discoveries available to the general reader in an easy-to follow program that prevents disease as it delays aging. Writing in clear, non-technical language, he explains the most recent findings in the field of aging research, then shows the reader exactly how to apply these principles to everyday living conditions for results. Just what causes, aging? Dr. Kugler presents his pioneering work on the center of aging in the brain, and concludes that many aspects of aging can be avoided. Not only can we and should we live longer, says Dr. Kugler, we can stay mentally and physically fit longer as well. The Giants by Richard Barnel, Simon & Schuster 1977. "For thirty years a handful of men in the White House and in the Kremlin have determined for one another what to produce, what to spend, how much freedom and dissent to allow, how much secrecy to demand, and how to treat the rest of the world." The cold war has been an evolution of two rival elites. On both sides, the elites are poorly prepared for the rigorous task of coexistence, which has always been marked by misperceptions and miscalculations. "The half dozen or so individuals in Washington and Moscow who decide how life-and-death power is used are like chess players in the dark," Barnet writes, "absorbed in a game they can barely see. Each player depends upon the other not to upset the table." , Now more Americans and Russians are talking to each other. Here is the story of the crucial new stage in their 60- year dialogue — how Nixon and Kissinger tried to transform the relationship and what kind of detente is likely to survive them. — Mary Ploger, city librarian. By JOHN D. McCLAIN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - CBers across the country are responding favorably to proposed new CB regulations written in simple English. "It is refreshing to see the regulations written in plain, common language," wrote an Oklahoma City CBer. "This is a much appreciated effort on the part of a government agency to help instead of hinder the public," commented another from Stratford, Conn. "A-plus for the effort." And from Walnut Creek, Calif.: "I think the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) is really trying to improve the CB situation and this is a good start. Thanks." The FCC, which regulates the CB service, published the proposed rules last summer in the Federal Register. Gone are the "therefores," "thereofs," "theretos," and "notwithstandings;" the semicolons and wordy, difficult-to-understand paragraphs normally associated with government legalese. In their place appears short, familiar words. The personal "I-you-we" form often is used and, where necessary to improve understanding, a question-and-answer format. Charts help explain longer rules. Current rules say, for examp or attached, by coadio frequency power amplifier shall be used or attached, by connection, coupling arrangement or in any other way at any station." The new regulation says: "You must not use or attach in any way a linear or external radio frequency (RF) power amplifier at any CB station." Printed with the new rules was a questionnaire entitled: "The FCC Wants To Know What YOU Think About The Proposed New CB Rules." "The response was just about 100 percent favorable," says Erika Ziebarth who, with FCC co-worker Greg Jones, wrote the proposed rules. Jones says they got about 450 responses, most from ordinary CBers. But responses also came from government agencies, CB and consumer organizations and members of Congress. "Yours may be the first real 'plain English' regulations ever to be printed in the Federal Register," its director, Fred J. Emery, told the authors. "I believe the proposed 'plain English' CB rules will be found to be more readable...than the existing rules," replied the consumer representative of the Internal Revenue Service. "I am going to share this example with the IRS regulation writers, so that they may see what can be done." And from a Consumer Prod- uct Safety Commission official: "I circulated (a copy of the proposed rules) to the program managers and lawyers here...Perhaps some CPSC rules can be proposed this way." About the distribution of the rules in the Federal Register: This "should give you many interesting comments. I think this is a good example of citizen participation... "This type of action is exactly what is necessary if the federal governmental process is to become more accessible to the people," wrote Rep. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. Several comments suggested the rules be accompanied by more charts and illustrations to make them easier to understand. These and other comments will be considered when the FCC staff writes the final draft for submission to the full commission early next year. Simplification of the CB rules, says the Consumer Federation of America, is "definitely a major step in the right direction. "Since President Carter promised during his campaign that he would call for all government regulations to be written in plain English, the FCC as a communications agency should be among the first to comply."

Space ^Technology Center presented fa credit course on the LAND? SAT satellite at Garden City j Community College. The Soviet Union still has inot launched its RS-OSCAR I satellites expected in October, i but the Japanese-built OSCAR-8 satellite is still planned for a March launch. Deerfield science students were surprised at the ease with which the OSCAR-7 Morse-code beacon signals can be understood by simply tape-recording the signals at fast speed, playing back the tape at slow speed, writing down the numbers in columns, and plugging them into the formulas supplied by the AMSAT Satellite Corporation to determine the health of the satellite. Morse code numbers can be understood by grammar school students, because if the Morse character starts with a dit, the number is simply the number of dits. If the Morse number starts with a dah, the number is simply 5 plus the number of dah's. For instance, dit-dit-dit-dah-dah is the number 3 and dah-dah-dit- dit-dit is the number 7. No knowledge of the Morse code alphabet is necessary to take the pulse of the satellite. Adults and junior high students from as far away as Syracuse, Leoti, and Cimarron are now studying radio theory every Sunday afternoon, 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. at the KU-KSU offices in Garden City. December Schedule: OSCAR 7 "Science Teachers" Satellite: "A" means listen on 29.5 MHZ for 15 min. "B" means listen on 145.95 MHZ for 15 min. "D" means satellite will pass almost directly overhead. "Q" means low power in use. "X" means experiments in progress. Signals will normally be voice (SSB), and Morse Code (CW).

How Santa Claus Had A Long and Difficult Journey Delivering His Presents, Fernando Krahn, Delacorte, 26 pgs., ages 3-7, $2.50- paperback. Believe it or not, Mr. Bear had better intentions of seeing Santa on his appointed rounds than Santa Claus did. Mr. Bear put his shoulder to the task of getting Santa dressed Schultz' Gang Finds Meaning As the first flakes of snow start descending on Peanutland, that imaginary everywhere in which Peanuts grow in wisdom if not in height, Charlie Brown and his philosophical Peanut peer Linus search beyond shiny aluminum trees, tinsel and gaudy neon to find the real, unornamented meaning of the Yuletide season, in "A Charlie Brown Christmas," Peabody and Emmy Award-winning animated special to tie rebroadcast Monday, (7-7:30 p.m. CST) on the CBS Television Network. The program, written by Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz, focuses on Charlie and Linus struggling to discover what all the decorating, card sending and gift giving truly symbolize, and subsequently presenting this real gift of Christmas to the rest of the Peanuts, who had been too wrapped up in the trimmings. and out onto his sleigh in the dark and chilly night. And as if Santa's lack of enthusiasm was a portent of disaster, the reindeer slipped free and off into the sky. Santa was left stranded. With the help of the toy airplanes, the toy dolls, and the toy trucks Santa "sped" on his way to a big thud. The sleigh became stuck in a ditch. What finally comes to Santa's rescue? That's a surprise, and one that joins the fantasy of Christmas with the meaning of Christmas. Krahn's story is told without words, and in black and while drawings with Santa in his bright red, overstuffed suit. A good Christmas tale by a talented artist who recently illustrated Walt Whitman's classic poem, "I Hear America Singing." never-say-die way, Marcie in a who-cares? way. Peppermint Patty could really make one swell team if it just had more than the one-man superstar as shortstop (and rather strange-looking for a man at that!). That's the famous Snoopy of course. What's more distracting, boos from the crowd or a right fielder who keeps telling you she thinks you're cute? Charlie has a touch time deciding, but one thing he knows for sure is that he is totally dedicated to baseball, win or lose (mostly lose). In full-color or black-and- white, Charles "Sparky" Schulz's characters come alive to tickle the funny bone of young and old alike. Sandlot Peanuts, Charles M. Schulz, Holt, Rinehart & Winston, lots of pages!, all ages, $9.95. As Joe Garagiola says in the forward, "For Linus, happiness is a blanket. For Joe Garagiola, happiness is baseball and Charlie Brown — in other words, this book." A combination of the rock 'em, sock 'em school of baseball, and the "isn't that cute" school of baseball, here is a full collection of cartoon strips that shows the game of baseball from each of the Peanuts Gang's point of view. Charlie loves baseball in a Rock 'n'Roll Legacy Remains By JOE EDWARDS Associated Press Writer NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The age of slicked-back hair has gone the way of the fallout shelter. Former bobbysoxers now are raising teen-agers themselves. But the legacy of rock 'n 1 roll remains. There's a definite "shake, rattle and roll" influence on the Nashville music industry. It's because several rock 'n' roll stars from the '50s and '60s work in Nashville in behind-the-scenes jobs like- publishing and arranging. There simply are so many music-industry jobs in Nashville — not only in country music — that the ex-rockers naturally gravitated here. One of them is Bill Justis, whose "Raunchy" sold 10 million copies 20 years ago. He's now an arranger. "I made a record and got lucky with it," he said. "I went on the road for six months and found out I wasn't a star. Like tobacco, I performed a serv- ice. Echoing the opinion of several others, Justis said much of the rock music 20 years ago would be considered country today. "Pop is more sophisticated than it used to be," he said. Jimmy Gilmer, whose group, The Fireballs, recorded "Sugar Shack" in 1963 and "Bottle of Wine" in 1968, is general manager of United Artists' music publishing group here. Arriving At a Place You've Never Left, Lois Ruby, Harper, 149 pgs., ages 13-17, $7.50. Arriving at a place you've never left is like coming full circle to realize a new discovery in an old you. The characters in Ms. Ruby's short stories do this full circle in a powerful, "I-can-touch- you" way. The stories deal with such themes dealing with an early and certain death, understanding anti-semetism, and kleptomania. From a small Jewish neighborhood, to a large city hospital, a college dormitory or low-income housing, the author brings to life the people who live there and the struggles they overcome. "Arriving At a Place You've Never Left" is a fine tribute to a new author who is a native of Wichita, Kansas, and still lives there with her husband and three sons. — Lorie Jammers-Murdoch.
