GEMS graduates are equipped to handle almost any emergency which might arise during baby-sitting, from mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to how to keep children amused while parents are away. After a fashion Namath plans fashion 'bomb' Namath By MARIAN CHRISTY NEW YORK - If and when football star Joe Namath retires, he plans to score in fashion by sanctioning a line of men's shirts that are more razzle - dazzle than sedate. Men's shirts are going through a metamor- p h o s i s and Namath, voicing discontent with being •"beat up" in football and facing a knee operation at season's end, has expressed plans to retire. Maybe Namath will trade football for fashion. Or, maybe, he'll add fashion to his many outside interests. Namath, a hardheaded businessman who would like to capitalize further on .his luminous name, recently admitted an "interest" in fashion. Everyone who is for or against Namath is well aware that he was the first big- name sportive to wear a $10,000 mink coat. The rumor is that a topnotch fur salon in New York is trying to snag Namath to do a collection of furs for men — with a neat 50-50 split in profits, of course. The men's-wear industry has been mounting an offense to masculinize itself and certainly Namath could kick the old effeminate image. It all started when Wyatt Cooper, editor of New York's Status Magazine and the husband of socialite - clotheshorse Gloria Vanderbilt, agreed to do a collection of men's furs for Jacques Kaplan. It's clicking along nicely. Kaplan's competitors would like to grab Namath because he's a rough - tough he-man, and that image is precisely what the men's-wear industry needs. Other personalities are helping things along. Frank Sinatra is among the first of the big-time personalities to want luxurious printed shirts, Frank recently zipped into a Hollywood boutique and bought two dozen patterned shirts by Polo-each shirt carrying a $25 price tag. Polo Shirts, a zippy New York shirt company with 100 prestige store accounts coast to coast, has come up with a wild silk print shirt made from quality tie material; Cost: $75. "We though^ stores would laugh and say, O.K., that's fine for window dressing," $ays Polo spokesman Steve Krauss, "But the joke was on us." Orders fpr that $75 print shirt have poured in from Flowered shirts — men lap them up by the dozen Texas, California and Ohio stores. Polo can't stock enough of them. • Meanwhile, three other movie stars — George Hamilton, Steve McQueen and Anthony Quinn — have been buying up printed shirts in silk paisley or nautical prints. Fur coats, another hot item, have been selling briskly. Jacques Kaplan this week sold marmot coats to author Jack Gruen ("The New Bohemia") and actor Dick Shawn. Frank Zefirelli, the director of "Romeo & Juliet," buzzed into the Kaplan showroom and quickly bought himself a mink coat and a black Russian broadtail in the new maxi length. And Valerian Rybar — the interior decorator who travels the world to create surroundings for beautiful people like Mrs. William Paley — popped in and bought a nutria maxi. - Designers are betting heavily that men the world over are in the throes of dynamic change and that the mask of Puritanism regarding fashion is slipping away. Taking the lead are supercharged sportsmen of the caliber of baseball's Ken Harrelson and hockey's Derek Sanderson who have established sleek new fashion images.

Charg* or At wit's end Columnist's loot is thin end of wedge By ERMA BOMBECK I guess you people out there think syndicated columnists rake in a fair amount of loot and free trips from grateful readers, public relations men and publicity seekers. At the risk of being immodest, I'll have to admit, I get my share. I beg your indulgence as I use today's column to thank some of them. To: Bernard Geis Publishers, New York. Thank you for sending me Bonnie Pruden's new book, "How To Keep Slender and Fit After Thirty." I wish I knew whom to give it to. All my friends are my contemporaries. As one author to another, may I suggest you market it in a plain, brown wrapper? * * # To: Mrs. A. R., St. Paul, Minn. You devil, you. After you read the column Erma on the washer that eats one sock out of every pair, you went right out and mailed me 35 of your single mismated socks. Unfortunately, only two were a match. What I have done is started a chain letter of single socks with your name near the top. If things turn out right, in two weeks you should receive single socks from the Mets shower room, socks lost in the New York YMCA and socks without partners from two fraternity houses in Lansing, Mich. . You're weird, but you have nice stationery. * * * To: Volkswagen Corporation, Englewood Cliffs, N.J. , 'Really, you ar« too much. On at least five occasions, I have used the trade name of Volkswagen in my column. I did so without pressure from anyone, but only because I felt the .name had some meaning to the story and I could work freely without tokenism of fear, of being rewarded. Yesterday, T returned home to find a Volkswagen bus parked in front of my house. It belonged to my mailman, who delivered to me a complimentary copy of your newsletter. I am returning the newsletter under separate cover. You will find that an honest press is a free press. In a word sir, I cannot be bought and try to forget it! To: WHEC-TV Rochester, N.Y. A belated thank-you for the mink-lined mop bucket you pressed into my hands just as I was about to board the plane. I certainly got a big chuckle out of it. So did the woman next to me who thought it was a first-class airline "baggie" for mal people. , . I don't know how to thank you, but I will think of something. Unless you're a pro,, men, stay out oi the kitchen NEW YORK (WNS) - Unless a man is a professional cook, he should stay out of the kitchen. Nika Standeri Hazelton, an international food expert, says, "Why on earth should a healthy, able-bodied man spend his time preparing complicated gourmet dishes, and then add insult to injury by boring his guests with a lengthy recitation on exactly how he improved on the recipe by adding a dash of cinnamon?" Author of 12 cookbooks, including two new ones, "The Picnic Book" and "Eggs," Mrs. Hazelton is a lecturer, critic and writes a weekly food column in The National R e v i e w, the conservative magazine published by William F, Buckley. She grew up in various parts of the world as the daughter of a German diplomat, is proficient in nine languages and exasperated with male cooks in.all of them. "The man who cooks a meal to impress a girl is totally wrong. A crown roast of lamb, however delicious, is a poor substitute for a night at the theater or a diamond bracelet." As for a cozy evening for two at the bachelor's apartment and the problem of what to eat, Nika warned, "The man should not disappear into the kitchen to whip up a souffle. It destroys the intimate mood. For that matter, if it's the girl who's entertaining, she shouldn't disappear either. CITY o 111 i rtf\ fl KtrUbLlG MAIL Chief nutritionist told state most progressive By FRANKIE MANLEY The work of Arizona's chief nutritionist Mrs. Anita Yano- chik has brought to Arizona the distinction of being the most progressive of the 50 states in the field. In September, Vice- President Spiro T. Agnew asked the 50 governors to send suggestions for improving the nation's state of health. Gov. Jack Williams called Mrs. Yanochik late on a Wednesday and asked for the recommendations by Friday. The 11-member recommendations committee of the Nutrition Council of Arizona (Mrs. Yanochik is president) worked 18 hours In Mrs. Yan- ochik's office and turned in six pages of recommendations. Robert Choate, White House aide, called Mrs. Yanochik to compliment the recommendations. "It's the most progressive thing out of Arizona in years," Choate said. "This report is the best statement on these problems from any of the 50 states . . . and undoubtedly best articulates in advance the recommendations which the President expects the White House Conference to formulate for the whole country." "It wasn't very difficult," Mrs. Yanochik said. "For two years we've been studying what Arizona needs nutrition- wise. Our council motto has always been 'Together we stand. Divided we're stuck.' "Everybody talks togetherness. We really do it. In other states you fit into a mold. Arizona is new enough to offer the opportunity to create."' As chief nutritionist of Arizona State Health Depart- Mrs. Yanochik ment, she has received letters from Illinois, Iowa and Washington, B.C., and other states, asking how Arizona handles nutrition problems. The committee first suggested an additional cabinet member to coordinate the existing 45 government agencies with nutrition components. Other suggestion included: —A national nutrition survey to evaluate and monitor population nesds, analyze nutritional quality of infants' foods and of school snacks available. — Proper and understandable percentage food labeling, relating to both nutrients and additives, the committee saw as a mandatory action. — In addition to public education, a poor family of four should have $100 a month's food budget to get a proper diet in the form of food stamps the committee advised. The food stamp program would be complementary to a revised welfare program. — The public school transportation system should be used to transport the indigent to shopping centers where prices are substantially lower than at their neighborhood grocery. Mrs. Nancy Powers, executive director of the Daily Council of Arizona will accompany Mrs. Yanochik to the Dec. 2-4 White House Conference on Food, Nutrition and Health. Mrs. Yanochik will leave Thurday for the State and Territorial Nutrition Directors meeting. Nutrition state representatives will meet in Philadelpia to discuss the White House conference with the President's special consultant, Dr. Jean Mayer. Funny woman cries on inside Diller says men prefer naive, helpless females Associated Press The funniest woman on the block may convulse her friends sitting around the morning coffee klatch, but chances are, her lack of appeal in the romance department is more likely to cause her to break out in tears than laughter. So says Phyllis Diller, whose exploding hairdo, big mouth, and self - deprecating routines based oh the dilemmas of housewives have been amusing audiences for the past 15 years. "Comedy isn't a quality that attracts men. In fact, by and large they resent a funny woman — one reason why there are so few comediennes," explains the trim, 52 - year - old native Ohioan. Phyllis, who claims to be the world's only female stand-up comedian, believes that men prefer "a dewey eyed, helpless, petal - soft female who sits at their feet and holds their hands. "For a permanent partner," she elaborates, "men look for a woman who is gentle, naive. What they don't want as a steady diet is a woman who makes them laugh. That's why a woman is a fool to be clever." Fortunately for audiences, Phyllis could never help being anything but clever. Her wit, displayed in such books as "Phyllis Diller's Housekeeping Hints," "Phyllis Diller's Marriage Manual," and the latest, "The Compleat Mother," has played a major role in her life since she was a child. As she points out, Steve Allen once remarked that 'If you're not a comic by age 10, forget it' and I heartily agree." She advises mothers to encourage their children to laugh in Uie home. "For instance, say you walk into a doorknob and catch your sweater on it. Instead of just undoing, it, call attention to.it. Exaggerate it. That's comedy," guffawed Phyllis.
