BEIRUT, Lebanon JP— The first woman member of Parliament in Lebanon, who became a deputy in April says she is "Not going to go shouting in the House of Deputies for women's rights—women in Lebanon already have their rights." "But I hope we will see more of them in Parliament in the future," says Mrs. Mirna El Khazen, a pert, 25-year-old brunette with two children. Women in Lebanon have the vote and considerable influence, and a few have even run for Parliament before, but Mrs. Kha/en is the first to take a seat in the sometimes raucous Chamber of Deputies. She suggests that women should also become diplomats and cabinet ministers, because it's better to have capable women than incapable men." Mrs. Khazen is the daughter of Arab industrialist Emile Bustani, who died in March when his private plane crashed in the Mediterranean. She was elected unopposed to fill Bustani's seat in the tough Chouff district. "At first, I completely rejected the idea of running for Parliament, but my husband Fouad convinced me," she says. Mrs. Khazen is married to a 28-year-old engineer. With a husband and two children—Jamil, 3, and Laura, 2,— she feels she still has time for politics, because "women usually waste a lot of time, but I intend to use all of mine." "Woen can succeed in politics because they have some diplomatic ways that men don't," she adds. One newspaper hailing her election said that if her presence in the House did nothing else, it might improve the conduct of deputies who have been known to brawl on the floor. "I feel a very heavy responsibility lies on my shoulders- it is the heritage of my father's ideals," the woman legislator says. Bustani, a close friend of the West, worked toward Arab development and envisaged an Arab Common Market, and his daughter says she intended to strive for the same goals. A graduate in psychology and philisophy, she speaks Arabic, English and French, and is interested in children and public welfare. To Be Honored Mi. and Mrs. Robert L. Toice will celebrate their Cold Anniversary June 30th with an open house at their home, 1901 Burling Dr., from 2 to 5 p.m. The former Leah Gurner and Mr. Toice were married June 29, 1913 in Quincy. The couple has one daughter, Mrs. Velma Strohkirch, and a son, Joseph, of Hawthorne, Calif. They have five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Mr. Toice retired from Owens-Illinois Glass Co. in 1957. Expectant Parents Mrs. William Fabianic, chairman of the YVVCA expectant parents' committee, announces it will offer a summer series tor future mothers. The classes will be taught in the newly air- conditioned large clubroom in the YW building. Mothers-to-be classes will begin on July 2 for six weeks, with Mrs. Thomas Vance of Alton Memorial Hospital as instructor. This course will be held on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. An accompanying body conditioning course for the expectant mothers will be given on four consecutive Wednesdays beginning at 1 p.m. At the close of the course, expectant fathers and mothers will tour the local hospitals and will also hear an anesthetist speak.

So he is in favor of shipping five million foreigners back to "where they came from," is he? Well, I'm in favor of shipping 178 million foreigners back. In 1492 those foreigners started to come over here in boatloads—with their superior weapons and their big ideas. They - murdered, plun- Ann Landers, dered and stole this land from my ancestors who had rightful claim to it for centuries. Of course the TV version shows it another way, but any honest historian can give you the straight story of what actually happened, if you are interested. It isn't very pretty. Since "Flag Waver" seems so adamant about sending the foreigners back may I suggest he start the trend by being the first to leave?—CHIEF RAIN IN THE FACE DEAR CHIEF: Thank you for an interesting letter and an accurate (if somewhat oversimplified) perspective of American history. * * # * DEAR ANN: I'm a 16-year- old girl who loves children. I do a lot of baby-sitting and it's sort of a hobby with me although I can use the extra money. The two families where I sit most have small children who must be put to bed early. One of these homes has a broken TV which the people don't seem to care about getting repaired, so I have to sit around and look at the four walls all evening. This can be very boring for five hours. I know you are against babysitters having boy friends visit when they are on the job but what about inviting a girl friend or two? You said once "no company" but.I hope you will break down and change your advice because the two women I work for follow your column and they are going to do as you say. Pretty please? —SAD SACK DEAR SACK: I'm especially sad that with all the fascinating books that have been written you can't think of a thing to do when the TV konks out but sit and look at the four walls. A wise philosopher once said that the surest test of a person is what he does when he has nothing to do. How do you stack up? * * * * DEAR ANN: A person rather close to me is planning an elaborate wedding for her daughter. The woman is not wealthy but she is not destitute either. This girl is her only child. The mother is telephoning friends and relatives and asking them to bring refreshments for the wedding buffet. My assignment is 50 finger sandwiches—chicken preferred. My sister has been asked to bring a large cake—angel food preferred. The more I think about this cheap trick the madder I get. It seems to me that people ought to put on the kind of wedding they can afford and not take advantage of their friends this way. What is your opinion?—IRKED DEAR IRKED: If you don't want to bring refreshments to the wedding, why don't you say so? Some people offer to bring refreshments to affairs of this kind, but putting the arm on frionds and relatives is a pretty brassy maneuver.
