Texas, TEXAS PRE ASSOCIATION ad lib by donna scheibe Astrology ot a big put down last week from more than 10 American scientists who announced that it was, in effect, a lot of baloney. Furthermore they wrote let- ters to the major daily newspapers in the country charging them with irrespon- sibility because of the horo- scope columns they carry in their pages. In the scientist's opinion, newspapers help perpetuate the myth of astrology by publishing the predictions of Sidney Omar, Carroll Righter, Jean Dixon, and the like. Apparently they assume the newspaper reading public be- lieves in the credibility of the press and look to the print media only for reliable and important news. Arguments for astrology aside, the scientist's attitude toward American newspapers and their readers leads me to believe that they should stick to their test tubes, atom bombs, and cancer research. The), obviously haven't been reading newspapers lately. As a faithful reader of between 30 and 40 news- papers every week I am familiar with the type of news that big city editors consider important enough to take up valuable space. Astrology col- umns receive 12 to 14 inches a day...Ann, Abby, and Heloise are allocated a little more on a daily basis, and the syndi- cated news columnists come in for a goodly share depend- ing on their local readership, Then we come to the "hard" news which breaks up the space between all the ads. Last Sunday's papers were a good example of world events reported for the educa- tion and spiritual enlighten- ment of the American people. One of the Beatles -. or maybe it was a Rolling Stone -- has a new girl friend, which is nice except that she's bisexual in her sleeping habits. A bit of a problem that - and an uplift- ing item of" information for Sunday morning, isn't it? I also learned that Tiny Tim's child bride, Miss Vicki, is now a go go girl in a bar somewhere and recently did a nude spread for "Oui" maga- zine. Nobody knows what happened to Tiny Tim, the reported noted sadly. Also Wilbur Mill's girl friend, Fanne. has told all about her abortion in a recently pub- lished book that has hit the best seller lists...and the Jaycees in some town in Arkansas have cancelled her speaking engagement there. Why they invited her in the first place was not explained. Other stories of great im- port revealed that Jackie Today's COST Of rebuilding is Believed To Be The HIGHEST. Keep Your Feet High From Worry., ,Let Us UP-DATE Your HOME OWNERS INSURANCE NOW! hasn't made up her mind whether to accept the $3 million left her by Onassis or to sue Christina...and that Princess Caroline of Monaco is a trend setter among European youth even though Mama Grace disapproves of her lifestyle...And, oh yes, Princess Margaret and her husband are being very naughty at parties lately. An item of earth shattering importance is that men will soon be wearing make up -- foundation, mascara, eye shadow, and lip gloss. I can hardly wait. After an hour or so of absorbing all those relative and enlightening facts, I turned with relief to the astrology column. I doubt that the half inch devoted to what Saggitarians could ex- pect from the movement of the stars imperiled my im- mortal soul any more than the hot flash from London that Elizabeth Taylor is going to give fifth husband Richard Burton another try, Perhaps Richard should check on his horoscope to see if his daily aspects can help him stay away from the booze. Since science hasn't found a cure for his alcohol- ism, astrology surely couldn't hurt him.
