10 Gafesburfl Re9jstef*Majj y .Go|esburQ> tit. Friday, June 28, 1963 o By JOY MILLER NEW YORK (AP) — As toy buyers, parents long have been considered pushovers for their children's whims, pathetic pawns in the toy industry's hard sell. Last Christmas they rebelled. As a result, sales of high-priced toys in 1962 were, as the trade journals put it, disappointing. Next Christmas prices will be lower*. A good many manufacturers frankly concede that the trend to lower-priced toys was forced by parents. The extent of this completely unorganized revolt was apparent here at the American Toy Fair, where next Yuletide's playthings were shown to buyer's. Some Still High Priced Emphasis will be on low and medium-prteed items, with a generous helping in the under-$5 category. Of course, the more costly class is represented. There is, for example, a bespectacled doll that speaks 200 { phrases for the little girl who has everything — including, it would seem, incredible patience. And a toy parrot, who wrll repeat what you say to him because he contains a transistorized tape recorder, costs more than a live one. rouoRe a C^onducts Ml ruda lAJorkdho, Members of Altrusa convened at Scandia Restaurant Thursday evening for a workshop. Miss Lotus Regan, retiring president, presided at the session, conducted by Mrs. B. E. Manvvorren, newly elected president. During the buzz sessions for each individual committee, chairmen serving last year presented chairmen for 1963-64 with the committee files. A resume of the work was presented at the conclusion of the workshop for program planning. Theme for the year is focus on service. Chairmen for the ensuing year include Miss Doris Nelson, Al­ trusa information; Mrs. Berl Nord, international relations; Mrs. Beulah Gill, public affairs, Mrs. James Witte, vocational information; Also, Miss Helen Federspiel, classification and membership; Miss Florence Johnson, constitution and bylaws; Miss Deborah Wing, extension; Mrs. Charles Bednar, publicity; Mrs. Beula McGaughy, finance; Miss Harriet Aberg, - newsletter; Mrs. John Ankersen, archives; Mrs. Philip Steinfeldt, courtesy. Dessert was served prior to the meeting arranged by Mrs. Manworren, Miss Nelson and "Miss Isabelle E. Jennings. "Why the revolt? A good many breadwinners couldn't afford the expensive playthings that their youngsters had their hearts set on. Others, who did scrimp together the money, often watched their children's faces fall when they discovered the highly touted toy wasn't all they thought it would be. Then there were the expensive numbers that required the combined efforts of a Wernher von Braun and a Sanskrit scholar to put together with the dubious aid of enclosed directions. No parent in his right mind buys an unassembled toy—and the ones sold last Christmas were largely to adults deluded by promotion showing the toys in the state of togetherness. You Pay for Development Prices, however, are defended by a toy store president, who points out that it's mostly not the material you pay for, it's the CLUB CARD PARTIES LAKE BRACKEN Ten tables were at play at the Knox County Country Club clubhouse Thursday afternoon when grand slam prizes were won by Mrs. Bertha Swedburg, Mrs. Gail Savidge and Mrs. Kenneth Lane.

A good toy can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars before it goes into production. He thinks parents' resentment reached the boiling point when toys were advertised as "only $18.50".and wee ones approached their sires to say, "Gee, dad, why can't I have it; it's only $18.50." To meet some parental objections, the Federal Communications Commission last year ruled toy companies couldn't use prices in TV advertising. for and About Women Ruth Milled Writes IJou'te the One la C^ure .Shyness ^Heefin Soclai ^A^airs 9 "I'm painfully shy and nervous when I am left at i large party with someone I've never met," a young wife writes.

Ask your husband who is likely to be there, and get him to tell you something about those you'll probably meet. Store those facts away in your mind. Then think up several general remarks you could make to anyone, even a complete stranger. You don't have to think of any- think witty, or profound — just something to get you over that tongue-tied feeling and give you a chance to show that you are a friendly person. And If you should f|nd yourself feeling self-conscious because you are all alone In a crowd, look about yon and you'll find someone looking equally uncomfortable. That's the time for one of those "general" remarks you have tucked away in your mind. Then ask a question or two and before you know it you will have a conversation started. The other person will be grateful to you for singling him out, and go away remembering you as a gracious person. Don't fool yourself into thinking that the socially adept persons who go from group to group making light chatter are smarter or more amusing than you are. Either they know people well enough to feel at ease, or they are making themselves behave In a sociable manner.
