Those Representatives and Senators lay claim to the voice of justice should know it isn't.

JOAlll lm--fl What island was recently in the news when Britain sent troops to restore the rule of the Crown? nlllnBuy FISHKILL -- Settled in the early 18th Century, Fishkill was significant during the Revolutionary War when it served as the state capital for six months, until the seat of government was moved temporarily to Kingston. Fishkill's extant Dutch Re- formed Church once served as a prison for one of America's first counter- spies, Enoch Crosby, repu- ted to be the prototype of James Fenimore Cooper's fictional hero of" The Spy." USSURI RIVER -- Site of recent clashes between Russian and Red Chinese troops, the Ussurl River has long been a disputed boundary between the two countries. In 1858 and 1860 Russia exacted from the Chinese two treaties, thereby gaining 380,000 square miles of land, much of It east of the Ussurt River. These treaties are now being challenged by Peking. BORDENTOWN -- This pretty, little town was once a busy shipping center and the home of some of Amertca!s early patriots. In 1778 Bordentown's citi- zens conceived a plot to blow up the British fleet at Philadelphia by means of a "mechanical keg." In 1816 the exiled king of Spain, Joseph Bonaparte, settled here. Among the historical houses still standing Is Clara Barton's schoolhouse, one of the movie, anyway. My boy friend puts Ms What ancient Roman resort now lles under the sea? t)lnll first free public schools In America. FAYETTEVILLE -- Sit- uated on the Cape Fear River, Fayettevllle is an industrial and agricultural center. Furniture, fabrics and lumber are produced here. Tobacco warehouses are the scene of annual auctions, and cotton and livestock are important to the city's economy. Near- by Fort Bragg Is one of the country's largest mili- tary posts. BAIA -- Baia once lay by the Bay of Naples, in the volcanic Phlegraean Fields, rich In mythology and history. Here Roman society gathered to enjoy parties, healthful sulfur baths and sea air. Censor, Nero, Cicero and Seneca maintained sumptuous villas. Today the spa lies buried under mud, sand, rocks and water, victim of a sinking coastline. Plans are underway to bring Bats to the surface and restore it. ANGUILLA -- This little island (35 square miles) was the recent cause of British embarrassment when it refused to be a part of the self-governing associated state of St. Kttts-Nevts-Angutlla and sought to follow a more independent path, precipi- tating the landing of British troops. Angutlla's poor economy is a matter of concern to the Crown and the principal source of the islanders' discontent. arm around me. That's all. He just sits there. When he puts his arms around me, I get the urge to make out. I kiss him on the neck and give him other hints. Well, about 10 minutes before the movie is over, he kisses me, but it's Just a peck. All the teen-agers around here go to the drive-in to make out. What's the matter with us7 Am I doing something the wrong way? -- S. in Dallas. A. You have a nice boy friend --a gentleman. He's protecting you. If you and he put on a display in the front seat, the couple in the back could hardly help watching every move you make. Be grateful he's the way he is. You could find many boys who, front seat or back, would be ready to make out with you even during the first movie. But after a movie or two with one of them you might wish for your nice friend back. Heavy necking is not necessary on a movie date. Enjoying being with each other Is the important thing. COOL OUTLOOK: Q. My boy friend and I plan to marry this fall. We're not engaged yet, but I'm sure his parents will object. They ignore me when I'm in their home. I'm very sensible and have tried to meet them halfway, but I don't know how much more I can stand. -- Ignored in Florida. A. Go more than halfway. Find out what they are In- terested in and talk to them about it. That's the quickest way to get them interested in you. DRESS BLUES: Q. My mother won't let me wear short dresses. I'm so flat-chested nothing looks good on me, anyway. The small town I liveinhas only about five or six decent stores, with prices so high I can hardly afford the dresses they have. When I do buy one, it is so cheaply made I'm ashamed to wear it. What can I do7 -- Need Figure and Clothes in California. A. Learn to sew and make your own. This way you can find patterns for dresses that will make your chest look larger. You can have dresses that don't fall apart at the seams, too. Your mother may be so happy about your new skill that she'll get Interested in the pattern books. They will prove to her that short dresses are the thing nowa- days. Postman vs. Home Owner More often than not, the rela- tionship between postman and home owner is a warm and friend- ly one. But even into this sunny clime a little rain must fall. Such as, when the postman gets hurt and sues the home owner for dam- ages. As a general rule, the home owner is not liable if he is not guilty of any negligence. For ex- ample: A home owner was sued by a postman who suffered a bad fall when a rotting porch step suddenly caved in. But a court found no liability. The judge pointed out that, since the rot was visible only By contrast, take the following case: A postman slipped and fell in the outer hallway of a home, be- cause an excessive amount of wax had been applied to the floor. This time, there being negligence on tlm part of the home owner, the court ordered him to pay the postman's claim. In terms of sheer frequency, the Number One hazard that the post- man faces is a bite by the home owner's dog. Many thousands of on-the-job bites are suffered each year by mail carriers. In such circumstances, the home owner is usually liable if the state has a "dog bite law." Under this law, a dog's master may be held responsible for a bite not only when he was negligent but even when he was not negligent in any way. If the state has no dog bite law, the home owner might still be liable--but only if he was some- how to blame for the bite. In one case, the owner of a vicious dog did take the trouble to post a "BEWARE OF DOG" sign on his front door. However, when a postman rang the bell to deliver a package, the man opened the door and permitted the dog to dash outside and bite the post- man in the leg. A court duly imposed legal liability on the householder. The judge said posting the warning did not end his responsibility to- ward those visitors who, like tim portman, had a perfect right to come onto the premises.
