I • '• i Names and faces Bumper stickers profitable for Al Minsky of Dallas The fast-running battle is fought across the cities and highways of America. The ammunition is cheap; just a few cents. There are no casualties, except perhaps wounded egos. And, as in most wars, nobody really wins. Car sticker sales are big business and probably getting bigger. The businessman, once content with a framed "Think Big" above his desk, now often carries his slogans wherever he goes. There are thousands of shops across the country making a specialty of selling stickers. Their ideas come from all over. "I carry a tape recorder and a notebook with me all the time and whenever something hits me I write it down," said Al Minsky, who left the retail music business a year ago to open a one-man bumper sticker company based in Dallas. "Sometimes," he said, "people give me their ideas just to see if they'll sell." Stickers can express a person's views to the car behind on almost any given situation. War, peace, sex, patriotism the generation gap, pollution, optimism, pessimism - you want it, they sell it. Right now, the Vietnam war is the most popular sticker subject. "Visit beautiful Vietnam by Southeast Asia Airlines" is frequently seen. More rare is the innocent-sounding- "How many Vietnamese fought in our civil war?" A car full of hippies sometimes bears on its battered bumper- "No babies, no manpower, no war." The doves don't have it all their way; the hawks are sticker conscious too. "America-love -it or leave it" they admonish, or just "Stand by your President." With pollution now a top issue, ecology stickers do well They range from "Support your local tree" to "Keep vour S »»/V at A pig J° n " or from " Fi « ht sm °g; bu y a horse to "Keep America beautiful-swallow your beer cans."

For the man who wants to keep his firearms there s Outlaw the gun, and only outlaws will have guns." ' The young sport more frivolous stickers like "Kiss me I'm a liberal" or "Pot: hobby not habit." ' The crusaders go for "Fight Crime," "Stamp out old age; smoke cigarettes" or just "Go to the church of your choice on Sunday." y For the sexy there's: "Hormones are a big bust." And, finally, for the blankly pessimistic, there's "Tomorrow is canceled due to lack of Interest." LEON BOTSTEIN, at 23 the third president of Franconia College in New Hampshire, wants to help students understand the motivation behind what they study. "It's irrelevant what you study," he said, "as long as the study of it is relevant—if it sharpens the ability to understand." With his arrival at his new job in the tiny White Mountain community of Franconia, the Swiss-born Botstein became the youngest college head in the nation. While his blond wife Jill rummaged through rooms of unpacked cartons, he outlined his program for the 7-year-old experimental liberal arts school, which he takes over Sept. 1. "The entire curriculum will be oriented on problems," Botstein said. "The student will choose one, then join an investigation team guided by three or four faculty members." * * * Mrs. Rita Willey was the quickest of four quick-fingered women recently in a grueling eight-minute test at Rockland, Maine. That made her the world's fastest sardine packer. Armed with only scissors and taped fingers, four finalists took on thousands of slippery sardines, sliced off their heads and, faster than it takes to tell, laid them body to tail, tail to body, eight to a can. Then with the stage of Fishermen's Memorial Pier littered with the remain* to the August sunihine, Mrs. Willey, 33, was named the winner with 67 caus of perfectly packed sardines. That's 536 sardines in eight minutes, better than one per second. . "I was nervous all during ' It," said Mrs. Willey, an em- ploye of the North Lubec <V of J(oc.k- land, as reporters crowded around. "I was wondering all the time who was going to get ahead.' There was a one-minute warmup as about 3,000 spectators cheered their favorites many climbing onto the stage for a better view. It was all very informal. In second place with 64 cans of beheaded fish was Mrs. Patricia Havener of the Port Clyde Packing Co., while Mrs. Lois Laslie of North Lubec s plant in Lubec was third with 61 and Mrs. Hilda Merchant of Addison Packing was fourth with 59. The'women had to judge the can length, snip the sardine body and tail to the proper length by eye and put them neatly in the can. All cans judged by industry representatiges to be below commercial quality would have been disqualified, but there weren't any. The piecework system puts a premium on speed, and women bandage their fingers to protect them from the scissors blades. Each woman has a different style. Some are flamboyant, arms making great circles as the fish are picked up and fishheads flying in every direction. Others, like Mrs. Willey, work intensely with hands always close to the action. HINMAN WITNESS JAILED VAN NUYS (UPI) - Mary Briinrier, former member of the "Manson family" who tiiritMt state's evidence in the Qary Hinman murder, was ordered to jail for 90 days /fsterday for violating her probftUon on a forgery conviction.
