4-Aleono, («o.) Upptr DBS Meine* Thoriday, S*pf. 9, 1965 GIRDLES ARE GETTING INTO the news once more. As almost every woman knows, those things have a \vav of creeping up on us, and this time It Is no less dignified group than the Daughters of the American Revolution who think things have teen stretched too far. - o - IT ALL STARTED WHEN a New York girdle manufacturer, the Treo Company, thought up a new line of Pop pants and girdles. Some of them featured drawings of hamburgers, soda pop, and crying eyes. Then one designer really got carried away. His name was Ross, and we presume he was no actual descendant of Betsy, but he must have been just a little taken wltli flag making for he designed a red, white and blue garment called "Stars 'n Stripes." - o - THE NEW POP ART GIRDLE barely hit the market when the fat hit the fan. Or rather, the fat had barely hit the fannys Inside the new Stars 'N Stripes when the D. A. R. brought up their own rear enforcements and protested violently. About the least their Flag Committee called it, was "a shocking caricature and a desecration of the American flag." I really can't say that I blame the D. A. R. - after all they are trying to protect the foundations of liberty. The proper place for Old Glory to wave is on the top of a flag pole, not undercover. - o - THE PRESIDENT OFTHETREOCompanylmmediatelyannounced he was snapping back the girdles from the market. The problem then became what to do with all the leftover merchandise. He could burn the Stars 'N Stripes girdles, which as far as I am concerned is the well-deserved fate of any girdle, new or old. But this would sort of dignify the whole arrangement for burning Is the honorable end for any worn-out United States flag. - o - ANOTHER SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM would be to use the girdles as Is as a foreign charity to the Broads abroad. This would give the underprivileged nations overseas, ample notice that the Yanks are coming. If they could be distributed in areas where a sarong or a grass skirt is the only garment worn by a native woman, and if the gals got their hands on, or their hinds in, the Stars 'N Stripes and wore only that, you can see that " would certainly win the tattle for the minds of men. - o - . OR THE MISMARKED GIRDLES could be sent to Russia. This would show them how far ahead of them we are in the race to contain space. And judging from any experience I've ever had with girdles, plain or fancy, it would certainly not be giving any aid, or especially, comfort, to the enemy. - o - ALTHOUGH I FERVENTLY HOPE THAT the Star Spangled Banner will never die, I fully believe that the proper fate of the Stars ( N Stripes girdle is to dye. The Treo Company should pack up all the girdles, dye them black and have a big sale. Husbands could buy them to go with the lacy black lingerie they traditionally give their wives for birthdays and Christmas. In this case, hind-sight is fully AS good as fore-sight. - o - AND ALL THIS WOULD SORT of prove a little motto I'm considering using as my personal slogan. I made it up merely by misplacing a semi-colon. It reads, "There Is a destiny that shapes our ends rough; hewn though they be." - o - I GUESS I BRAGGED TOO PROFUSELY ABOUT being the champion fisherman of the family. Last week I got my come-uppance We went out on the bay very early In the morning and I was all prepared to catch more trout than Father, the way I had been doing. What I didn't reckon with was Pa's new equipment and some inside information about a different fishing hole. - o - HE TIED INTO WHAT I THOUGHT must be at least a whale, fought It for about ten minutes, and pulled in his first snook. (His supervisor at work, a born and raised Floridian, had been telling him Yankees can't catch snook). It weighted 6 1/2 pounds and was so strong it actually pulled the boat along I Next he got a beautiful five pound red, plus a couple of nice trout. About all I could do was to keep out of the way, but I did catch a flounder, just big enough to keep, and a little dinky snapper. - o - I TRIED TO BE A GOOD SPORT about it. The reason I didn't go back to fishing with Father in the afternoon was that I had household chores to tend to. He caught another red, a six pound one, and he's been rather difficult to live with ever since. It it's anything I can't stand is a person who brags about how many fish he catches. - o - DURING THE WEEK OF Sept. 5 through 11, people having birthdays include Mrs. Hazel Lusby, Bernice Holt, Fern Specht, Bill Specht, Arlene Knoll, Joyce Woods, Noma Buchanan, Inez Wolfe, Roger Keith, Barbara Bartlett, Sharon Sundet, Maynard Miller, Jeff Stephenson, Maureen Ruhnke, Marcy Diamond, Tom Carlson, Philip Miller, Bob Hardy, W.
