By MURRAY J .HROWN UPI Travel Editor COLOMBO, SRI LANKA UPI) — Americans looking to change their travel diet may "ind this Indian Ocean island 'epublic of Sri Lanka, still more commonly known as Ceylon, is just their cup of lea. For although it lies only about 20 miles off India's southern coast, and was in olden times a major crossroads on trade routes and^he scene of repeated invasions and occupations, the tide of modern mass tourism is just reaching its shares. In the official langauge of Sinliala, Sri Lanka means Resplendent Island. It more than lived up to its name foi this first-time visitor during a ,veek-long tour with other American travel writers as quests of the Ceylon Tourist Board. We found the people warm and friendly and anxious to make us feel welcome. In addition, the prices are more ban right —particularly in these tlays of soaring inflation and dollar devaluation. Tourists ;et a G5 per cent premium above the official rate of exchange, which meant that the U.S. dollar bought 10.64 Ceylon esc rupees at this writing. Would you believe, foi instance, -about $30 tops a 'day double for accommodations and three meals in the best hotels or $10 for a dinner for two with entertainment? Or how about 20 U.S. cents FESTIVAL of .GOSPEL ^ , MUSIC - APRIL 19 'or a shave and a haircut?

Still Curiosity Tourists apparently arc still somewhat of a curiosity and scores of smiling townspeople, young and old, massed inside and outside the shop to watch The smiles seemed to grow bigger and warmer when oui guide identified us as Ameri cans. There was little doubt abou how the barber felt —there vere two pictures on the otherwise bare wooden walls —' one of a younger Vein Vellu and the other of liie late President Kennedy. I sat upright in a straight- jacked wooden chair while Velu Vellu scraped a two-day growth off my face with a straight razor.

(UPI) — By many standards, Diane Chcchik was liberated: wife, mother, Jiomcmakcr and career woman, all rolled into one, for 2^ years. That's changed now. Mrs. Chechik, 3S, sat in the nearly empty interior design, furniture and poster boutique she is giving up and told why. The four roles she played had "simply exhausted" her "physically and mentally ... You can only play the rolps so long without something happening. "You worry about your kids getting into trouble. You're •always lolling your husband you're 'too tired.' You wonder if he'll meet .someone who isn't." Hail Enough She has -had enough of that kind of "liberation." With two children in school, her career, her home and a husband in public relations, Mrs. Chechik decided that, "being a perfectionist, I couldn't split myself in those ways." By tiie time she finished cleaning the house, cooking, laundry, shopping, car pool driving, interior decorating and -buying trips to Chicago, "it was one or two in the morning and I was so hyper I couldn't sleep." To cut domestic corners, the Chcchiks moved from the house they owned for nine years into a more maintenance free, rented townhouse. Her husband and children helped "as much as they could," but she thought she didn't have their "moral support." She couldn't afford to hire fulUimc help, which she said I was too expensive and hard to lind. £. Hives Apupcar Then she began breaking out in hives. Sirs. Clicchik's doctor said something had to go. It was the boutique. "I determined that Uie children came first," she said. "I made a commitment to them before I made one to my career." Her plan now is to return to work in seven years, after her youngest finishes high .school. ! "You look in the mirror and! decide priorities and values," she said. "I want to remember something of my children's childhood besides the hassles. 1 can't say to them in 10 years 'ij want to sit down and be your! mother, and now we c;m put I our feet up and have a Coke I together.' ' "The real liberated woman is; the one who makes choices. I'm' not anti-women's lib. But I'm , not going to have it thrown I down my throat that to be! liberated, I have to work awayj irom my home. { "I have the freedom oft choice, I'm going to make time! for me." ] Green Giant Co.
