Calendar Becomes Their 'Ego Board 9 By Heloise Cruse Dear Heloise: My husband says that this is a crazy idea but my friends like it. Use one of those calendars with space for appointments for each day. Hang it up where you will see it (above the-washing machine). Each /tints from •Hefoibe day, put a small reminder of something you did — the name of the show you saw, the name of a book you finished, the kind of new dress you made. ' In other words, put down something to remind you that you did not spend the whole day lying, on a velvet couch eating peeled grapes. —Don't put down things like "cleaned house"..or "cooked three meals" — if that's what you do most days because the idea is to bolster your sagging spirits by showing yourself that you do accomplish things. If you have .nothing to write on your "ego board" for day after dreary day, you really do need a change.. Do something 1 —Shy Storage Tip Dear .Heloise: When you get ready to store your. chil-_ dren*s overshoes~for"the"season check for missing but- tons. If you find this problem I have the answer: I found some buttons with the metal fasteners that hook to the shank of the button. Push the shank through the boot and slip the metal holder through it on the inside of the boot. It's a really good substitute. Touch-Up Job Dear Heloise: I've just discovered a marvelous way to touch up dirty spots on an otherwise clean kitchen floor. Just- use one of those floor waxes that also cleans at the same time as it waxes. Takes that dirt and grime right up and no one will ever . know that a touch-up job was done. —Mrs. K. G. Coat theKnot Dear'Heloise: When making afghans with wool, in order to keep the knots from coming undone, simply coat the knot with clear nail polish; -Mrs. W. L. Use an Iron Dear Heloise: Here's another way to open a sealed envelope! Dampen a small piece of cloth and press with £ warm iron over the sealed area. It will open very easily.

U.S. Dist. Judge Thomas J. Viacfiride dismissed four counts charging Robert Irvine Lethe of x>s Angeles, doing business at Athena Books, with mailing obscene matter. Six counts charg- ng mailing of unsolicited advertisements for obscene mater were sustained. , t -^ . , ' . ^ x Although the case involved only the use of the mails, it presumably could >be made applicable to any means of selling or distributing obscene materials to adults requesting them. And because this- would remove a potent enforcement weapon in the obscenity'field, he ruling is almost certain to be appealed to higher-courts. Judge MacBride relied on last year's U.S. Supreme Court ruling that the mere private possession of obscene material is not a crime. Lethe's attorneys argued that the right to possess implies the right to buy or receive — a right that is meaningless unless someone has the right to sell or send. Judge MacBride agreed. "Can it be reasonably argued that, although the government may not directly prevent someone from'buying a book, it may achieve the same result indirectly by making it a crime to sell the book to him?" he asked in his ruling. "I think not, unless the government can demonstrate it has some substantial interest in preventing the sale other than keeping the purchaser from buying." • Judge MacBride said the Su- Dreme Court has recognized the jrotection of children and the jrotection of an unwilling person from obtrusive invasions of privacy as proper governmental interests justifying ob- seenity-laws; Miniskirt Is Stitt Here- AndMini-er Than Ever By Noftnan Badderly LONDON, ENGLAND (AP) - Relax, men, the miniskirt is still here—and mini-er than ever. * Fear that it would be smothered under the maxiskirt or the iSi have evaporated beneath London's springtime sun. A tfeek ago the outlook was less bright. Many London dollies sheltered from the long winter in sidewalk-sweeping maxicoats and ankle-length plastic rainwear. Last month des[gner Mary, Quant, who" invented the mini, showed an all-maxi and midi collection. "We put in one mini skirt just for a joke, but we couldn't go through with it, so we took it out," a spokesman for Miss Quant confided at the press show. Then, last Saturday, the sun shone and the thermometer shot up to 68 degrees. Sunday it reached 72. And when the dollies brought their weekend suntan back to work on Monday their maxis had gone and their legs were on show again. Each succeeding day of sunshine seems to have" sent the minis inching higher and higher. A walk through the lunchtime crowds in the Strand Thursday revealed battalions of glittering gams, but only one maxi-skirt. The only feminine knees not visible were supporting women of, let's say, a mature age..' Asked whether she saw a future for the maxi, one leggy blonrfe relorted: "A" maxiskirt in this weather — you must be joking." If you carrot all, you'll serve them with real butter. american dairy association De» Moines Register Fri., M«y_§. 1970 Special Offer For Mother At your Merle-Norman Cosmetic 'Studio, you'll learn how to be beautiful!^. . . with lessons that money can't buy.

Brezhnev predicted Thursday the United States will achieve no more success with its Cam- jodian campaign than it has in Vietnam. "There is no doubt that the new deed of the American aggressors will yield them no more victory than they have won in the dirty war against the Vietnamese people," Brezh- nev said in a speech to Czechoslovak and other East European leaders at Prague Castle. "A sovereign, independent state, Cambodia has become the target of American aggression. Again, many Vietnamese villages have been bombed, and because of the imperialists the flames of war have engulfed all of Indochina," Brezhnev declared.
