NO, but even the meekest passenger under the control of a skyjacker may wonder if he shouldn't put up more a battle against the air pirate. Yet resistance would prove more satisfying to the skyjacker. The headlines he would then garner may do more for his ego than being interned in a foreign land, or living in ignominious anonymity off his ill-gotten ransom — just bursting to lell everyone of his teat but, of course, not daring to whisper a word. Ave all grownups alike to kids? NO, the youngsters no! on'\ can spot adult different in attitudes and behav i >r. they can also take advantage of them. For instance, i: one paieiit is nioiv permissive, the children will pit th.- one parent against the other. In the ensuing clashes of tem- |KT;imenl, the children will find that they have "divided and conquered" the authority they fell was aligned against them. And don't think each parent won't try to be the children's favorite. Is it wrong to relish a marital light? THAT depends. A husband who gleefully provokes his wife into fighting is obviously lacking the essentials needed to make his marriage a success. On the other hand, a husband, who relishes a marital Hyit once the battle is on. may welcome- the opportunity to clear the air of a thousand little annoyances that have cropped up. and is hopefully looking forward lo ' a happier, smoother marriage once the flak stops flying. reb syndicate.

Many people think of it as a ballet school affair — a bit too posey. or finical for daily life. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The graceful action is doing what comes naturally. The awkward movement is the unnatural one, both contrived and purposeless. What's more, awkwardness leads to fatigue, muscle strain and figure bulges, simply because it works against nature. If you aren't sold on the idea, try this experiment: Throw a matchbook on the floor then pick it up. How- did you retrieve it'.' By flopping over or plopping down'.' Either way you were off the natural course. And had you been able to glimpse your back in a mirror, you would never forget the gaucherie. (looking cut's For Sunday-night supper add small cooked shrimp and a little snerry to canned mushroom soup. After this course serve tru.t salad.

ALWAYS Now try this pick-up: Approach the matchbook from the side, not head on Then, centering your weight on the balls of the feet and with the feei a pace apM't. slowly bend sour knees until vmi can easily grasp the matchliook; rise at a slow even tempo.
