THE FAMILY CIRCUS mi K*, M living driving hansom cab U.S. child adoptions decrease By MALCOLM CARTER Associated Press Writer ' . i. "Ask Mommy to com* and be the chipmunk, YoOr voice isn't squeaky enough." Senate vote concedes women's right to credit X WASHINGTON (AP) - A «£cnate committee voted ^e.anesday to ban discrimina- ttori on grounds of sex in granting credit to women. ji>#tftfne fact that a woman is a wdmart should not be held rgainst her," when it comes to singles, divorcees and wid- 6ws trying to establish credit, daid Sen. Bill Brock, R-Tenn. t Brock's proposal was adopted by voice vote of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee in reporting new credit billipg legislation to the full Senate.. 'i Overall, the measure amounts to a d d ill o.n s and Modifications in truth - in lending law, including: ; —Requiring prompter action by credit card-issuers in acting on c u s t if ni^ r com- njgints of billing errors. , a r p: restrictions on - til •• due^coufse prac- ... in |wKich the :original ttbr is fib 1pnger;liable.for _ £'s ciaijtis. • : ';:?'.. :'.';' '. ^tiii nvi tti n;g class action teilfients^in cr^ditv^ abuse l^to ;;''qne'" : .per,^cetit ; df :v £ 7 film's net worth or $100,000, whichever is less. \ Under Brock's sex discrimi- hation ban a woman; would 'still have to meet the same credit standards applied to inen. 1' What would be eliminated, Jivould be flat refusal of some stores and companies to grant k woman credit because she is a woman, regardless of her financial situation. The panel also voted 8 to 7 to strike out a provision which would have eliminated the "previous balance" method of computing credit charges. Under such methods, a re : tailer can compute interest oil the outstanding debt at a date of his choosing, ignoring any payments since that date. Again,on Brock's motion, the committee voted 9 to 7 to strike out a provision in the bill which would have banned a minimum credit charge on each transaction, Prpxmire said the charge, when levied on small purchases, has the ultimate effect of much higher interest rates. In each case, Brock said the' provisions would have damaged small retailers who provide credit as a service and do not make a profit on it. . NEW YORK - Doreen Harwin snapped the reins of the horse pulling her hansom to Its post outside the Plaza Hotel hear Central Park. "Keep it up, Micky. I didn't tell you to stop trotting," the l^year-old driver commanded. Then she remarked, "It's just a matter of letting him know who's the boss." Doreen is one of about a d0.2en young women who drive buggies bedecked with plastic flowers through Central ParMor $10 a half hour. She works almost daily and e^arns $20-25 a day-after splitting the fares with the carriage owner. Living near the park, she decided it would be a "nice thing" to drive a hansom, so she applied for the job. Two weeks later, she ended her training when her employer told her to drive around the block four times. "I ended up going around the block about 20 times," Doreen recounted. From the midtbwn stable; she went to the park. "There were A million carriages there/' she recalled. "And all the drivers were cheering." On weekends, Doreen dresses up in jodhpurs and white riding blouse, but otherwise she might be wearing a plaid flannel shirt and jeans. She keeps her hair in a pony tail. . : Arthur McGill, 35, who hired Doreen and another woman, said he was the first to do so, adding they were "as good" as the men.

In the dead ot' winter, Jeanne O'Connor .and her husband bough/ a swimming pool on sale. Right then, she set Her heart on having a great-looking .swirri suit to 'go with it. There was only 'one problem: Jeanne needed a slim figure to get into it. And at 165 pounds with a big bottom, she had a long way to go to be a backyard beauty. So she decided to try Ayds* Reducing Plan Candy. Sweets were Jeanne's weakness—cookies, cake, soda and ice cream. They were always more important to her than meals, even after she married. The fact that Jeanne is a rationalizer didn't help, either. For instance, she used to look at fat people on the street and say to herself: "She's fatter than I am." That made Jeanne feel slimmer, so she'd eat and feel content—until she looked in the mirror. Then she'd feel miserable again. Here's Jeanne at 165 pounds, holding one of her sons. Even lie couldn't hide that thigh! Occasionally, she'd crash diet and live on liquids. But drinking her meals made her desperate fpr something to chew on, so she'd chew gum; and tliat made her hungrier than.ever., U was a vicious circle. That's why, when she B°t the pool, Jeanne knew she'd ; have to try some other way to eat Jess. She'd read stories about people who had taken the reducing plan candies, Ayds, and since many of them were much fatter than she was, Jeanne thought maybe Ayds could help her. (Notice how she always thought everybody was fatter than AVAILABLE AT ALL.,. Like the way she looks now? Since she's down to 119 pounds, Jeanne O'Connor will stand alone anytime. WEIGHT AND MEASUREMENTS Before After Height 5'6" 5'6» Weight 165 Ibs 119 Ibs. Bust 37* 34* Waist 31* 26' Hips 40* 36* Press 16-18 7-9 she was?) So she bought a box of the chocolate fudge kind and started following the plan. When you take one or two Ayds with a hot drink before meals, as directed, it helps curb your appetite. On the Ayds plan, you eat less because you want less, so you lose weight sensibly and naturally. In three months time on the Ayds plan, Jeanne had lost 26 pounds. Then she discovered she was pregnant! Even though she knew that Ayds contain vitamins and minerals, but no drugs, she thought it best to stop reducing, especially since she always felt nauseous during pregnancies. Losing those 26 pounds, however, made the next nine months the easiest Jeanne had ever had. She even looked good enough" to wear a two-piece maternity swim suit. In fact, she was so delighted with what the Ayds plan had done for her, she was back on it two weeks after she came home from the hospital. And as the weight started to come off once more, she started to look at slim girls instead of fat ones. She'd say to herself: "Is she slimmer than I am?! v Then she'd try • harder than ever to get another pound off, Jeanne knew there was no magic potion in Ayds, but for her there was the sweet satisfaction she needed to help her eat less. And it worked. Ayds actually helped curb her appetite enough so that she was able to get down to 119 pounds on the Ayds plan—and look terrific in a swjrn suit. It's a great feeling. For her husband, Bob, too, After all, he'd had eight years of never having to think twice about what other men thought of his wife. Now he can feel proud again. And, thanks to the Ayds plan, Jeanne O'Connor doesn't have to worry about who sees her, poolside. Ayds conies in four flavors; chewy vanilla caramel, plain chocolate fudge, chocolate mint fudge and butterscotch fudge. The three fudgy tyjjes are ideal for denture wearers. All are delicious. Why don't you try one? $0.00 each. DRUG STORES
