Fight Training Can Be Marriage Saver STORRS, Conn. (AP) "Almost everyone starts a marriage based on fantasy but they have to cope with differences they didn't expect," says a University of Connecticut clinical psychologist who specializes in "fight training." "The goal of fight training is to set up ground rules and define fighting styles so that couples can harness their aggressiveness and use it for positive purposes," said Donald Mosher. a Gestalt therapist. Mosher said his workshops are usually limited to six couples who are taught techniques in "fighting fair." "Like the heavyweights. sometimes in couples one partner has the upper hand with more verbal skill and so forth. Through fight training, the dove has a better chance of coping with a hawk." Mosher said. Although Mosher says fighting is a healthy and valuable aspect of marriage, "most couples tend to have the same fight a thousand times and differences go unresolved." To break up the repetitive cycle, Mosher suggests setting up ground rules for "constructive fighting." instead of "ritual fighting": "Couples must decide what are the important issues in their marriage. Will a fight Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, June 3, 1974 necessarily resolve the differences? "Couples should agree not to bring issues out of the past if there is no benefit in thrashing them out. They should agree on sensitive areas that are too delicate to withstand a fight." "The use of language is important. Profanities are useless if they fail to articulate a point." Mosher said. Fighting is inevitable in any marriage "because one partner always violates some set of expectations of the other." Mosher added. "We eventually have to resolve our differences so why waste steam that goes nowhere?" he said. Metric System Gets a Setback in England LONDON (AP) - British housewives don't like their meat and vegetables being weighed out in those foreign kilograms instead of good old pounds and ounces. Therefore, British butchers and grocers are refusing to go over to the metric system. And this, says the government's Metrication Board in its annual report, is one reason why Britain's changeover to the metric system is running two years behind schedule. The board suggests that the government should name a date when all shoppers will be made to go metric. The target date had been the end of next year, but it would not be achieved until early in 1978, the Board said. Stores, such as the butchers' and grocers', which weigh out foods in front of the customer, are unlikely to start using metric measures until they are legally required to do so. The government must remove the remaining legislative obstacles to metric change, the Board said. In particular, it should be made legal to sell in prescribed metric quantities all those goods, like sugar, which at present can only be sold in packages relating to imperial quantities — that's pounds and ounces. On the broader front of industry, commerce and education as a whole, the board says there is a good chance that the change to metrication should be "substantially completed" by 1975 — the target date set in 1965. The momentum in the change to metric measures, which was lost in 1971. has not been regained, the board warns. It says 1973 was a year of "steady but slow progress." Delay in carrying through the change from pints, yards, and pounds to liters, meters and kilograms will have damaging economic and social consequences, the report emphasizes. Delay- weakens Britain's competitive position in international trade and increases costs to industry by requiring dual production and dual inventories. The report says that metrication is frustrating educators and raising costs. Strain is bt'ing placed on children and there is waste of teaching resources because both metric and imperial systems are being taught. The board stresses. however, that much progress has already been m ad o toward metrication All goods in druggists' stores are now metric, while most new building is metric. In the engineering industry almost all new design work is in metric measurements, and the major freight operators use metric tariffs. On the consumer front, the board says that changes in textiles and clothing are starting and more and more consumer goods are being retailed with metric markings Government departments the board says, must do their part by specifying their purchasing requirements in metric measures A major publicity drive to explain metrication to consumers is needed, the board emphasizes. A heavyweight advertising campaign began this soring. CD A TO MEET TF, MPLKTON — The regular meeting of Court Sacred Heart No. 454.
