•M Friday, Marck 18. 1966 Jumping To A few Conclusions By HAL BOYLE I NEW YORK: SAP* — jumping* to conclusions: j Skinny secretaries generally can spell better than plump There's nothing meeker than an Irishman on the morning after St. Patrick's Day. If you're going to pick a quarrel with one. that's the safest time to do it. To avoid the crowds, start yowr Christmas shopping now. You can have more simple fun with Australian girls than the girls of any other country because they are the most comradely. Inside every congressman! there's a fellow hoping to getj elected to the Senate. j What this country needs more than a sood five-cent cigar is a good poet the people can understand. An intellectual is a person who, if told he had to be cast up on a barren isle with only one other human being. would choose as his companion Charles de Gaulle rather than Julie Andrews. You can get better barbecued ribs in a Chinese restaurant in Manhattan than anywhere in the Deep South. The grumpiest people in most offices are those who have only a doughnut and black coffee for breakfast. Work is always easier to face if you first put down a big plate of scrambled eggs and bacon. A kic! who is made by his mother to beat the family rugs on a backyard clothesline rarely marries early. You can do your banking by mail —day ttrhe, night time any time. Peoples State Bank MEMBER F.D.I.C. ArnarUlo has the lovliest sounding name of any city in Americas. Eight out of 10 people who own Chihuahuas are emotionally confused and afraid of loving anything nearer their own size. Isn't it amazing how few really interesting chess games you've watched lately on television? There never has been, and there never will be. a woman who can make chili as well as a man. Invariably, women make it too bland — as if they were preparing oatmeal. Any skyscraper would look better if it were placed in the middle of a 100-acre confield It's always safe to lend money to a man who wears garters. A fellow that oid-fashioned simply has to be trustworthy. Asian Economic Aid Bill inked WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson signed the Asian Development Bank bill Wednesday and termed it "an economic Magna Carta for the diverse lands of Asia." In the signing ceremony in the White House East Room, thej President told a distinguished 1 audience including diplomatic representatives from 26 countries "this is a moment in which history and hope meet — and mov e on as partners." In signing the bill, Johnson also announced the United States is pledging $12 million—half the 524 million needed—to construct a hydro-electric dam on the Nam Ngum tributary of the Mekong River in Laos. The Asian Bank bill authorizes the U.S. subscription of J200 million to the capital stock of the institution, patterned after the World Bank and intended to help finance economic growth in its vast operating area.

The Sun's TeleScope By CYNTHIA IXWRY AP "Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) — The program mix of network television begins to get a bit lean with the arrival of spring. "Tammy," "The Loner" and 'The Trials of O'Brien" have already slipped quietly into reruns and only thre e special programs are scheduled during the next seven days. On Sunday night there is another in NBC's "Of Men and Freedom" series, this a study of Europe's religious reformation of the 16th Century — the time of Luther, Calvin and Ignatius of Loyola (6:30-7:30 EST).

Wednesday brings a special in ABCTs "Saga of Western Man" series (10-11 p.m.) which concentrates on Beethoven. The story of his ordeals and triumphs will be told and some of his great music played by the Boston Symphony Orchestra. CBS' Tuesday evening news department show (10-10:30) will recapitulate the recent events in Spain under the title "One of Our H Bombs is Missing." .NBC's "Julie Andrews Show," so well received in November, will be repeated on Wednesday (&-10 p.m.) In Remodeling ~ Women Are Influential Women are responsible for many of the home remodeling decisions being made today. This fact influences many stores from coast-to-coast in their promotion and selling. A comprehensive survey conducted by "Building Supply News" indicates the strength of this tivnd. In its stduy, BSN divided the average remodeling project into four stages: 1. The first suggestion that the family should remodel. 2. The planning of the job. 3. The selection of the finishing materials. 4. The actual purchase of the selected materials. Most retailers will Immediately recognr*e that they must sell the person who makes these decisions in order to bring the final purchase to their stores. Also, many retailers may still believe that the husband makes all four of these decisions, and that he is the member of the family who must be sold. According to the BSN survey nothing could be further from the fact. Actually the husband alone makes the decision to remodel in 6li of all home improvement cases. About half the time, the husband and wife put their heads together and decide. But in 39r<; of the cases, the wife first sug- guested the remodeling job. At first glance, most retailers would probably believe that the husband plans the job himself, c-nce he and his wife have a- prreed on what should be done. But this occurs in only 22 per cent of the cases, with the wife doing the planning or the husband and wife planning things together in the other 78 per cent. Statistics likewise indicated that while 77 per cent of men in terviewed visited a hardware o: building materials dealer durin HAVE YOUR CAR INSPECTED NOW. 10 East Texas Bay town the past year. 16 per cent of the women also shopped in this type of store during the same penod. ffSI RELIEF!
