The term "cloister" was used before the French revolution to signify a wall erected for the protection of religious women. The term has continued in usage although its wide meaning has changed with the times. The Missionary Sisters belong to an Order founded about 40 years ago which is comparatively recent in the history of religious Orders. Their habit, or dress, is comfortable and reasonably up-to-date. In summer they make their clothes of practical synthetic fabrics and cheerfully "drip-dry" them. In winter they use warmer mater- j ials and whenever it's sensible C.

Post Office profits in Honolulu HONOLULU (UPI) — While most U.S. post offices operated in the red last year, the one in Honolulu earned a profit of more than $3 million. Honolulu Postmaster George Hara said the profit, which was turned over to the U.S. Post Office Department, was made possible by heavy mechanization of the delivery system. Hara said the post office handled more than 150 million piec es of incoming mail and 133 million pieces outgoing in 1963 Plymouth Dealers proudly announce...

If you want to, you can easily convince yourself there is a message in the resulting over-all tone of programming. There are different time zones, of course but for a large part of the country there was only one program in a recent "top 10" national rating report that began after 10 p.m.—"Candid Camera." In the Midwest, for instance, many shows go on an hour earlier than in the East or Far West. However you look at it, any week night program that begins after 10 p.m., can figure to have an exceptionally tough time. Occasionally, as last season, when "Ben Casey" started at 10 p.m., EST the rule is broken. But this season's schedule is an education. On Sundays for instance, "Candid Camera" and "What's My Line?" do all right. But "The Show of the Week" is canceled, and ABC has nothing on the network in the tough hour. Mondays, "Breaking Point," 'East Side-West Side" and "Sing Along with Mitch" are currently all marked out. Tuesdays, Garry Moore is out too "The Fugitive" has made it. and NBC has a mixture of mu< sical specials and documentaries. Wednesdays, "Channing," is axed, "Eleventh Hour" is out at least for present planning, and Danny Kaye has held on. Yet the remarkable thing with Kaye is that despite the excellence of his show, his rating is not impressive at all. Thursdays, "The Nurses" and "Suspense Theatre" apparently will return—though no great shakes in the numbers department. Sid Caesar, Edie Adams and "ABC News Reports" are exciting. Not all the cancella tions. of course are because of ratings. Naturally, working people — and youngsters—stay up later on weekends. Thus "Gun- smoke" and the Saturday night movie do well. But it is the 8-10 p.m., EST period that constitutes the financial heart of network prime time. And network planners pay enormous court to rural and smalltown viewers. If a farm- belt resident must arise at 5 a.m., and therefore go to sleep early, it is a fact of life that is reflected in the video schedules. The Channel Swim: Gov.

Olympic team celebrants Facts Classified Ads Can Sell Anything Call 793-3221 One acquitted, two given suspended sentences INNSBRUCK, Austria (UPI) —One U.S. Olympic team member, Mike Hessel, was acquit ted today on charges of fight ing Austrian police while two others, skier Bill Marolt and tobogganer George Farmer, were found guilty but given suspended sentences. The three Americans had been in custody since early Thursday when they were arrested for scuffling with police who stopped Marolt while he was driving a car he said he had borrowed from a member of the French Olympic team. The Americans asserted in court that they were hit by the police while their hands were tied, and Hessel accused the arresting policemen of using "Gestapo techniques." Charges on which the U. S. athletes were brought to trial were resisting arrest and defamation of character. Marolt, U. S. downhill ski champion from Aspen, Colo., was returning from a party Thursday when he stepped into a car owned by a French athlete and began driving it back toward the Olympic quarters. With him in the car was Buddy Feltman, Idaho Falls, Idaho, a member of the U. S. toboggan team. The attention of the police was called to Marolt when he drove the wrong way on a one way street. When they stopped him, scuffling broke out and resulted in the arrest of Marolt and of Hessel, Eugene, Ore., and Farmer, Seattle, Wash., who walked up as the dispute started and became involved. Feltman was not involved. Although there were reports the three Americans had been charged with auto theft, no such charge ever was placed against them. Andre Montant of France, owner of the car, appeared in court today and said he had given Marolt permission to use the car "at any time." Hessel and Farmer, who has a broken arm from a tobogganing accident, both had facial cuts and bruises when they appeared in court today. Hessel told the judge the police had hit Farmer "when his hands were tied." Marolt denied that he had kicked a policeman. He said the police had dragged him from the car feet first, "and I was just trying not to fall down." Marolt denied that he had hit a policeman. He said four policemen were "shoving" him and. "it's possible that I shoved him." Marolt was given a three- month suspended sentence and Farmer 2Vi months suspended. The maximum sentence possible was four months. Before the trial began. Art Lentz, assistant executive director of the U.S. Olympic Committee, backed up charges by Hessel's father that Farmer and Hessel were beaten by police after being taken to the police station. "My boy had black eyes and red bruises on his face and a bump on his head," Hessel's father said. "Do you think he did that to himself?" Hessel's father said the Americans were "dragged from the car and carried off to jail i in handcuffs." j The three athletes spent the night in jail after efforts by U.S. consular and Olympic officials to free them on bail faiJed. The incident dismayed the American delegation already depressed by the worst United States' showing in a Winter Olympics since 1936. It was particularly humiliating since the Russians, overwhelmingly leading the games in medals won, are hosts at a get-together with the American team today. And the good behavior of Soviet athletes at Olympic competitions, is proverbial. Marolt, a student at the University of Colorado, was driving, police said, and in his hasty efforts to park the car allegedly crashed it into another vehicle. They were about to arrest only him, according to their story, but Farmer and Hessel came out fighting and after a scuffle all three were detained. Carl Schmidt, American vice- consul in Vienna was here for the Olympic games and took over the case. He said the police had been "very cooperative." An Olympic official was outside the court Thursday night but shook his head, tightlipped, and would not comment. Big Event The Russo-American party was the big event on the United States calendar today since the U.S. is not entered in one of the day's finals and has no chance in the other two. The party is the second in a series started on Russian initiative at the Rome Olympics — where both teams were the giants of the summer games and on equal footing.
