The matter was brought to a lead recently by a General Ac* counting Office report that three of the military services had seen spending more than 5200,000 a year for nonessential raincoat vents. According to the GAO, the Marine Corps issues its Leathernecks a raincoat with a cantle piece vent of the type originally designed for cavalrymen. Since the Marines very rarely lit the beaches on horseback any more, there Is some feeling that paying 51 cents for a cantle piece to fit over the back part of a saddle is more or less unnecessary. Spends Extra Money The Army, at an additional cost of 46 cents each, provides its soldiers with a raincoat that The Cottage SEKVING "THE WEST'S IJWST FKIED CHICKEN" Also Steaks And Sea Foods Hiwa.v 60 8 Miles West Boxed Orders to Go 7634605 — SHOWTIMES — 1:30, 3:50, fi: 10 & 8:30!

PLI'S — PINK PANTHER COLOR CARTOON—"DIAL T' FOR PINK' has a pleated vent in the back. The Navy, in turn, spends an extra 27 cents to outfit sailors with raincoats that have a slit- ted vent. Only the Air Force uses un- vented raincoats. It apparently concluded that pleats, slits and cantle pieces are aerodynamically unsound. The GAO report deserves thoughtful consideration, for it goes to the very heart of the military-civilian relationship in this country. What those of us who are civilians must now ask ourselves is this: Are we in any position to demand that our fighting men get together and close vents? Sacrifice, you know, is a two- way street. I submit that any public clamor for raincoat vent- lessness in the armed services should be preceded by an objective examination of our own wardrobes. Such a survey undoubtedly will show that we civilians also cling to clothing appurtenances that are essentially nonfunctional. Take, for example, lapels. They serve very little purpose except as something for a politician to grab you by. Apandon All Lapels We could all abandon our lapels and just sew little handles on our coats for the conveni- Judge Orders Transfusions For Infant BOSTON (UPl)-A judge ordered blood transfusions Monday for a newborn baby on the ground that the infant's fight for a chance at life was more important than the religious scruples of her parents. As a fesult of the ruling and subsequent transfusions, Uni* versity Hospital officials said today that little Lydia D,Andrea, who was born a "blue baby", probably will survive. She was in good condition. The parents, Mr. and Mrs. John D'Andrea, who moved here six months ago from Lausanne, Switzerland, are members of the Jehovah's Witnesses Woman Regains Sight After Being Told She Would Never See CLEBtmNE, Te*. (UPI) -It was dark, dank and fainy Monday but Mrs. Mary Boese, 47, did fiot mind. She just watched the rain. It was something she had not seen for two years. Up until Friday she was blind. Mrs. Boese is a religious woman. She knew she would! see again — even when doctors! said she never would. Mrs. Boese has seen a vision of Christ, and felt this was a sign her vision would be returned. "I knew because of the way he smiled at me that I would see again."

They are hardly even noticed — except when one is missing. Trouser cuffs are of little or no benefit other than as emergency depositories for cigarette ashes. It would be better to drop the cuffs and start marking pants with built-in ashtrays. Watch pockets likewise are i largely anachronistic, save | when the band on a wristwatch breaks. Unless we civilians are willing to strip ourselves of surplus , button-holes fairness dictates that we permit the armed forces to maintain an open vent policy. Monday "I don't feel right.

Superior Court Judge Felix Forte interrupted another case; he was hearing Monday to discuss the life-and-death transfusion. Little Lydia was born at 5 a.m. EDT Monday, an RH factor child. Doctors said transfu-' sions were necessary to save the 6-pound 9-ounce girl's life. • But the parents refused. i Attorney Martha M.
