Other young pupils enrolled for private lessons which, the in- structor points out, give assurance of more rapid advancement. Because of additional requests for enrollment Miss Clayton plans to form classes for two age groups so as to permit more individual at- tention to the pupils. The practice of beginning pupils bemg acompanied by their mofin- ers is much-to-,be-desired, states the teacher, as the value of home practismg is thus encouraged.

Joc Marsh Do /en Like Women? Maybe you read that recent ar- ticle in a national magazine, claim- ing that American men don't really like the company of women. They just put them up on a pedestal and leave them there. But I wouldn't say that that was so in our town, Look at any mar- ied couple---like the Cuppers. Jane wouldn't nag if Dee spent his evenings "with the boys"--but actually Dee likes nothing better than to stay home by the fire, sharing a glass of beer with Jane, playing cribbage, or just talking. And when he does go out, for an afternoon of fishing down at Seward's Creek, or for an evening glass of beer at Andy Botkin's Garden Tavern, Jane is almost al- ways with him (except when she's got a spot of baking in the oven). From where I sit, respect doesn't rule out everyday com- panionship.., and never should. They go together---essential parts of a successful marriage, Copyright, 1947, United Stats Brewers Foundation Telephone toll lines, like the family bathroom, often are involved in tratiie jams. It's simply a matter of too many people wanting the use of limited facilities at the same time. Today we're handling a record number of long distance calls on equipment to which we still have been able to make only limited additions. So if you have to wait before your call can be comply.ted,  hope you will understand and be patimt. PUBLIC UTILITIES CALIFORNIA CORP.
