Mrs. Rudy Volentine Judy Peliy Hits Mills' Health Insurance Ideas LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Con- ressional candidate Judy Pety of Little Rock said Monday lat her opponent, Rep. Wilbur Mills, D-Ark., is "talking out both sides of his mouth" bout how he would administer nd finance the proposed na- ional health insurance' legisla- ion he is co-sponsoring w i t h ien. Edward M.

(AP) -i Using words like "agog" and "aghast" to describe women and their finances, feminist Susan Osborne has set out to lend women money and teach them how to use it, rather than to be intimidated by it. She and Karen Wynn, both from New Haven, are co-managers of the Connecticut Feminist Federal Credit Union, a cooperative cfffort. "Our loan policies are die taled by feminist priorities," Susan Osborne said in an interview. "Women do not have the same accessibility to money, to credit in the state and the nation," as do men, she said. She agreed that it has never been documented extensively but "it's such a well-known fact among women." DENIED LOAN For example, she explained, there was the 54-year-old woman who -- with 15 years of employment behind her and an annual gross of about $6,500 -was denied an automobile loan unless her father signed for it He was 84 years old. Another Connecticut CL.» said the 26-year-old money man ager was that of the 26-year-oI dustry. She told the Congressional Action Committee of the Little lock Chamber of Commerce .hat the proposed plan was one of the most inflationary pieces of legislation she had ever seen. A Mills aide at his Little Rock office said she could not reach . the congressman and would reserve comment until she could. Meanwhile Monday, Mrs. Petty said Mills' health problems last year had no bearing on what she believes to be his poor voting record. Mills was hospitalized and underwent back surgery last year. "Mr. Mills had back trouble and was in the hospital, 1 understand, for three weeks," she said, "and during that period of Congress he had only a 31 per cent (voting) average, and I don't believe you can attribute that poor voting record -- the second lowest in the nation -to the three weeks in the hospital." Mrs. Petty was participating in a program sponsored by radio station KXLR in which listeners ask questions by telephone. woman working lor a Bridge port bank. She had completec the bank's management train ing program and asked to lak out a car loan. She was asket to get her father as a co-signer Miss Osborne said. When she and her co-worker, first considered the idea for Ihj project, which she said is thi lirst feminist credit union k the Northeast and the fourth ir the country, they surveyed 150 New Haven women. "Half of them have bee turned down for loans or ha problems getting loans. Jus over 50 said they believed i was because of sex or marita status discrimination," Miss Os borne said. AGHAST "We were aghast. It's kin do really apparent that we've go a tiger by the tail. -We're refer ring people to the state Huma Rights and Opportunities Com mission" but 11 · counseling and bill consoli- ation. AGOG "Most women are agog when ven large sums of money, 'e're really interested also in x p a n d i n g women's con- ciousness about money," she aid. The credit union -- with ledges of a minimum of $42,H) -- is open to all state wom- n but they will have to first sin one of four groups, she aid. They are the National Or- anization for Women (NOW), lack Women United in truggle, the Connecticut Politi- al Women's Caucus and the ew Haven Women's Center. Men also can participate in le credit union but would have o Join NOW, which accepts ien,' Mrs. Osborne said.

I was down to the last spittin drop of toothpaste and happened to spy my comb. So I put the tube on the edge of the wash basin and, using the back of my comb, actually scraped (starting at the bottom of the tube) all the paste up to the top. Glory be, if I didn't have another week's supply! Some types of tooth paste tubes can and should be held under the hot water faucet so the contents inside will liquefy momentarily.

This is a wonderful .safety hint. Thank you, Alice. Heloise Dear Heloise: Here is how I often can save on the grocery bill and keep from heating the oven at mealtime. I shape bowls out of foil just big enough to hold whatever I have left over from the previous meal (or I use those foil pie tins) and place the foil bowls in the electric skillet. I turn the skillet to 200 degrees and heat all the leftovers at the same time. Then I just set the skillet in 'the middle of the table and serve from it, This also saves on dishwashing.
