STATHOS .during leap year, and if he istknown to go into hiding to stay United Press International unwilling to take the plunge hc'solvent. LONDON (UPI) — All y o u; m u st bu y her a gift as ransom.! Men get a better break bachelors running for cover over I generally a fancy dress, there OD Main Street, U.S.A..j Contemporary Germans who in this deadliest month of the!cling to superstitions feel that it leap year might like to know the brothers are running over here, too. In fact, this whole dangerous leap year frolic (for the girls) seems to have started over here, with the Scots, Leap year itself goes back to 46 B. C. when Julius Caesar's astronomers decided the solar year was 365 days and six hours long, and evened things up by putting 366 days into each fourth year. But as closely as anyone can figure, it was more than 1300 years later before the women got into the act with their pre datory leap year 'right" to grab for husband any man still untied. In 1288, a law was enacted in Scotland which said: "II is statut and ordaint that during. . . lepe year, ilk may- den ladye of both highe and lowe cstait shall hae liberie to bespeke ye man she likes, al beit he refuses to talk hir to be his lawful wyfe, he shall be mulcted in ye sum ane pundis or less, as his estait may be; except and wis gif he can make it appeare that be is betrothit ane ither women he then shall be free." Translated into plain english, this said that in a leap year an unattached female could pursue any unattached male to the altar with a penalty awaiting any innocent gent who couldn't prove he already was engaged or wed. A few years later a similar law was passed in France, and in the 15th century the custom I was legalized in Genoa and Florence. I is not a good idea to start any thing new in leap year. Many women tell their daughters not to give birth in the leap year because legend holds that the children will grow up seeing ghosts and having bad luck generally. The custom of having to buy expensive gifts for a girl who proposes to a man and is turned down holds true in Finland and Luxembourg. According to Finnish custom a girl may propose to the man and if he rejects, he is obliged to buy her material for a dress. This goes for every girl who proposes to him, regardless of their number. Finnish bachelors have been Blot Hair, Don't Rub A thorough shampoo the best treatment for hair, docs not require hard scrubbing which can actually punish even healthy hair, beauty experts note. Hair should be handled gently by working the lather through it with squeezing mo tions until thoroughly clean. This requires at least two sud­ sings, each followed by three rinsings. Then, blot the hair with a terry towel, avoiding brisk rubbing. Care of Child's Hair A child's hair can be damaged by permanenting or too t i g h t curling. It is best to dejay the first permanent until she is at least 14. If her hair is straight, Germany also is rich in leap!have the beautician cut and year lore, although old super-'shape it so it can be worn sim-i stitutions now are mostly joked;ply and neatly without the con- in Holland. There is no such thing as "breach of promise" in that country. If a man proposes to girl, be can break the engage ment by sending back rings and presents — even after the cou pie has taken out a wedding li cense. The predominanetly Catho lie countries of France, Spain Italy and Portugal favor the male viewpoint, too. The poor unwed girl just has to wait to be asked. In Italy, too, there is a widespread superstition that leap year is an unlucky year, as exemplified by such proverbs as "anno bisesto, anno senza ses to" (leap year, year without good sense) Husband-seeking girls in Rus sia have a kind of leap year all the time, though the term and the western leap year practice aren't known there. When the significance was ex plained by a U.P.I, reporter to one girl in Moscow, she laughed and said "That's capitalism for you! Here, we have equality of the sexes and we have as much right to propose as men do, although we do prefer it the other way." In the British Isles the unwary single man is in as great jeopardy as he is in the United States But there is one consolation. The 1288 law isn't enforced nowadays. Juice Consumers The U. S. Department of Agriculture reports the average American drank 38 glasses of reconstituted orange juice and 59 glasses of other juices and fruit drinks in 1962.

Forecast Of Beauty In Palm Of Hand Crystal-gazing comes in f o r some competition from the Feb ruary issue of Mademoiselle with forecasts of beauty that are definitely not fatalistic in ap proach. The palm that holds futural secrets often turns over to reveal lines that tell of neglect in the past, abuse in the present, more lines in the future. But these, unlike their permanent counterparts, can be assured a happy future when given the proper care. First among the preventive measures is an application of rich hand cream immediately after hands are in water. Some magic potions help keep hands! from getting grimy — but fail­ ing that, try protective gloves. I Phrenology exponents say j'Show us the shape of your Ihcarl, the formation of your !forehead and we'll tell you what I you arc." In a more realistic manner. Mademoiselle says, "Show us. and we'll tell you what to do about it." If a winter's worth of steam heat and cold winds has left your hair lifeless and shapeless, | get back into the hairbrush ha bit. Whether you brush bending over or standing up, be sure to brush hair out from the scalp, benefits from massage, a gentle rotating motion with the balls of the fingers. Also benefiting from both the brushing and the massaging — your upper arms and shoulder muscles. The heavenly body that could be yours takes no magic but it does demand work and willpow­ er. The work begins with exer cisc. Two sets of ten of the fol lowing will aid the waist, sides of hips, and thighs: Sitting on the floor, legs straight out, lean back, rest on bent elbows. Keep bands flat. Roll left knee over right leg, then reverse. The willpower part may be achieved through a time-tested action — slapping your hand every time you reach for a potato chip or peanut!
