Your Horoscope MONDAY, JUNE 19 YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY: Ways of converting intangibles and potential resources into working capital are fairly legible, increasingly easy to find.

Cancer (June 21-July 221: Being sensitive about recognition would get you nowhere. Do whatever you're supposed to on your own energy, expecting no quick response. Leo (July 23-Aug. 221: Information is difficult to verify. Rely on your own judgment. Impulse buying is an expectable temptation with unfamiliar items preferred. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept, 22): Reaching conclusions about people of clashing opinions works out slowly, if at all. You must wait and work to get what you want. Libra (Sept. 23-Ocl. 221: Diligent effort will advance personal plans, but not as far as you'd like. Some apparently trivial details have real meaning. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 211: Your wits and an early start can make you a happy campaigner for the things you care about. Do something cheerful for your loved ones. Sagittarius I Nov. 22-Dec. 211: Impulses bother you, are valid in larger context, troublesome at short range unless you really believe in what you're doing. Capricorn (Dec. 22-J an. It): Endless discussion is normal, serves as a safety factor, delays unwide moves. See that the debate doesn't get you into bad humor. Aquarius |Ja». 2»-Feb. W|: All your tact and discretion will be appreciated as you need future cooperation from people who now tend to clutter your pathway.

If warm weather causes your face to shine, use an astringent before applying make-up and, lightly, during the day, to refresh skin and keep it perspiration-free. Since this is a rather "touchy" subject, 1 decided to do some research. Rather haphazardly, (they just happened to be around when I remembered my research project) I asked four men to record their thoughts on Male Emancipation Day. THE FIRST is a young man, 25 years old, married five years and the father of two small children. These are his thoughts. "Two things entered my mind when I first found out that the Society for the Emancipation of the American Male was sponsoring Male Emancipation Day this Sunday, Father's Day. "First, 1 decided that it must be agreat put-on—a parody of Women's Lib dreamed up by some practical joker. Like the man who advertised that he was going to sponsor a world-wide Sex Olympics. He was the same fellow who roganized a society whose purpose was to clothe animals. He wanted to make them decent, you see. "The second thought was that it might be a for real sort of thing. That some man or group of men feels that the American male really is downtrodden and needs to be restored as the head of the family. "In that case I think that it's an even greater put-on, unconscious though its sponsors may be of it. "I also think that the choice of the word emancipation, as the day comes right before June 19, ii at best poor, and at worst vicious." THE SECOND is., I really hate to label him this, but, he is...middle-aged, 46 years old, married 19 years and the father of three children. "Webster defines emancipation as a setting free, or being set, free from servitude, bondage or restraint. "If Male Emancipation Day is of serious nature, then any husband-father who wishes emancipation, in the sense that Webster defines it, is in deep trouble. "If he is in servitude or bondage, he's either henpecked or a d-n fool, or both. He had better get out because he is not qualified to be a husband-father. There are many of them around, just as there are many women who cannot meet the qualifications of being a wife-mother. "Both parents, husband and wife, have equal responsibilities and obligations in the co-called family. An inequality of these obligations and responsibilities degrades the family, per se, to the point where it is not a family any more. "Both sexes speak.of mqre going off the deep end, striving for something they already have, if only they would use the right ingredients: a re-awakening, common sense, and a meeting of minds!" THE THIRD is (again, I hate to say this) middle-aged, 51 years old, married 14 years, the father of three children. -Male Emancipation Day?" "—That is the day on which the Society for the Emancipation of the American Male (SEAM) hopes to restore the American male to the head of the house...and he hopes she'll have him! "Webster's first definition of 'emancipate' cuts the rungs out of the ladder to new male heights of status: "To emancipate: to sell or transfer property." "Man will be lucky to find himself transferred from his work at the grindstone to his leisure behind the aspirin bottle. "So, male emancipation could be nothing more than trading your birthright for a bowl of cold 'later soup. The only appropriate comment lies somewhere between: "Male emancipation ain't what it SEAMS, or...the day marks man's move to the SEAMy side of life!" THE FOURTH is a very wonderful senior citizen, 65 years of age married 45 years, and the father of six children, who, he says, were never in doubt about who was the boss of the family. "The American male does not need to be emancipated in order to be the head of the house. He needs to resume the throne of his responsibility as the patriarch of the family, which is his divinely-appointed role. Patriarch comes from two Latin words: pater-father; archon-ruler. The man is the father-ruler of the home.

Cuyler 669-9442 problem in our society. We have no homes, consequently, the children are undisciplined and lawless. The children are not to blame; the parents are It takes both a father and a mother to make the house a home. Arid as Edgar A. Guest wrote: 'It takes a heap of living to make a house a home.' f "When the man shall again take his divinely-appointed throne as the head of the house and assume the responsibilities thereof, then, and only then, will we find our way out of the dreadful morass of immorality in which we flounder, and our society be recovered from the brink of ruin, upon which it trembles. 1 'God pity the poor wretch of a man who thinks everyone else in the house is boss but him. "And ye fathers," (it does not say parents as it is almost universally misquoted. It says fathers) "provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up' in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.' (Ephesians6:4i" FATHERS DAY seems to me to be somewhat sublimated by Mother's Day. It isn't easy to figure a way to "treat" Dad on His Day. If you take him out to dinner, he usually has to pay the "tab." When you really think . about it, Dad "gives" a lot more than he "gets" in the family circle. Maybe just letting him know how much he is appreaciated and loved will be the best "treat" for Dad. Since the generation gap is much talked about, I decided to do a little research on the way teenagers feel about their fathers. A young man, 18 years old: "He seems to have more than one personality. He is the moneymaker and far from being a friend, which isn't totally his fault." A young lady, 16 years old: "I think my father is the greatest. He tells me what not to do because he's already done it." A young man, 16 years old. "I like my father because he is cool. He's great." A young lady, 15 years old: "Great! My father is the greatest guy that ever lived. He's precious. I couldn't live with out him." A young man, 17 years old: "My father has tried to do his best as a father. I feel that he has tried to understand me, but the most important part of communication has been missing. Without communication, the He is not the head of the house or family because he does not want to be. Being the head of the house means responsibility, and men today are not willing to assume that responsibility. Consequently, all responsibility of the home now falls upon the woman, and she shuns it with the same indifference as the man. "This is the root of the A^yqung man, 20 years old: "I think my father is a very understanding person. My father makes all of the profitable decisons in our family." A young man, 17 years old: "My father is just about the greatest father there ever was. He is understanding about everything that I ask him." EIDA regularly NOW AT A SPECIAL PRICE!
