THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 1971 POPEYE By Bud Sagendorf THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE an secretaries: Brick Bradford ® By Paul Norris Blondie ® By Chic Young Rip Kirby ® By John Prentice & Fred Dickenson By JOHN BONAR TRIPOLI, Libya (UPI) -•) Walk into same $15,000-a-year di| executives' office in this' oil capital of North Africa and you are likely to find the boss typing his own letters. Secretaries are a vanishing breed in Libya. ' One girl who works for one of the biggest oil companies here, is secretary not only to the company president but also for two other top directors. At an oilfield service company five busy consultant engineers share the same secretary. For the secretaries here, whose ages range from 21 upwards, it means long hours. Said one executive secretary." I ant supposed to work nine 'til six with 90 minutes off-for lunch. I am lucky if I snatch half an hour for lunch and I am often in.the office until two or three in the morning." > It has its compensations, though. Top secretaries earn $700 a month and more. More usual for a girl with a few years of service is $500 to $600 a month. There is sun II months of the year and ' glorious miles of beaches. For some girls, however, •there can be no compensations for the remote life they have to lead. Mini-skirts are banned and a few offending girls had their legs painted by crusading Rooniy garage NEW YORK (UPI) - When shopping for that dream home make sure the garage is large enough to hold not only the family auto but all other miscellaneous equipment a modern household seems to accumulate. This advice, offered by the American Wood Council, is aimed at helping the modern home buyer get the. most house for his dollar. Garages inevitably . become a ' storage place for snow tires,. tools,; gardening implements, etc. policemen. In the streets of Tripoli, girls complain that they come in' for more than a fair share of pinching. It is not unusual for British or American girls to be arrested for minor driving offenses and be taken to the police sta- . tion. There,^ the officer on occasion has offered to let the charge "go if. the girl will go out on a date with him. This happens rarely though. Most girls get through two or three'years in Tripoli without', being faced with,direct- propositions. But few get by without receiving persistent advances from the Arab men. ! "To get by in daily contacts with just ordinary Arab men you've got to have a high degree of tact and self con-, fidence and preferably talk to them with authority, otherwise, they get fresh," was the view of one girl who has been here three years. Other problems . Apart.from being expert at' ' brushing off, the - secretary must also be a thorough do-it- yourselfer. Plumbers, electricians, handymen, and other tradesmen are difficult to find and expert-. sive when you. do catch up; with' them. "Who wpuld p have thought two years ago that we would "all be making our own beer- and wine?" asked one pretty asked .'one pretty girl who turns out 50 gallons a month for herself and friends-. Said another, "I don't look much like a • butcher, do I? But w4ien they banned pork here I bought a pig on the hoof land had it slaughtered. I was up 'til four in the morning hacking the beast up but it was worth, it. I put him. in. the deep freeze." Many girls are leaving when their; contracts expire. This is a, big problem for the companies here. Like all other jobs in Libya the government wants Libyans Campus barber is a tri TULSA, Okla. (UPI) - Get too close to pert little Mary Phelan ' "doing her thing," at the University of Tulsa and she may use scissors on you.' Or the razor. Miss Phelan,.who 'says "I'm ;. under'30," is the first' lady barber' on the. TU campus, though she is not the only woman who has invaded the sanctuary of the once all-male ' barber shops in Tulsa. She looks as if she belonged more. with the university's coeds than prompting quips : from customers who- find the men in the school's barber shop busy, only to be motioned to have a seat by the :. bright-eyed brunette..; I "You're a barber, too?" an • "enthusiastic'yoiing man asked, j "Hey, how about that!" Miss Phelan admits her eho- sen career amuses many, but says she seldoms has problems" with a customer who doesn't '•• want, to put his locks'at her: mercy. But she hasn't always been ' so candid about her job. "I began attending barber' school while I was in high school," she said. "Only my closest friends knew what 1 was' doing. My mother did •; not want me to become a barrier, but she is resigned to it now. My brother is even talking about becoming a barber.". Had own shop Miss Phelan Operated her own barber shop m a small town near Tulsa after graduating from barber college. She' gave it up after . 18 months "because of the sameness" of a small community. While looking fui a -simp in Tulsa, she became • acquainted .with Fred Speer, owner of the university's hair cutting salon. Sne has been in demand by . 'womtii, too, but says now she . docsnft cater to female customers unless _their hair is short. During the days of her own business, she had so many women customers she had to send some away. "They were driving away the men customers," she explained. She's had her share of the long-haired-youths, too. 1 had one boy who hadi'Tl had a haircut in two years,", she sai<£ "and all. he wanted was a trim."

WHAT IS THE ANSWER? by Henry E. Garrett, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus. Psychology. Columbia University Past President, American Psychological Association • Q: Dr. Garrett, I see Congress failed to appropriate that $150 million NixOn was urging it to give to further classroom desegregation. What is your reaction to that? A: Except for the money involved, I think the refusal of Congress to meet Nixon's demand is relatively inconsequential. It seems to me v the federal courts are destroying trie public-school systems without the additional aid Nixon proposed. This money would haye greased the skids la little more, that's all.
