English travel- ler Jonas Hanway dared to defy the heavenly purpose of rain (to get people wet) by suggesting that the umbrella be used for rain, as well as for sun. Although women accepted it readily, men shunned them at first, preferring wet clothes and wilted hair to being la- beled effeminate. However, clergymen began to open up umbrellas when the rain came down. It seems their occupa- tion procted them from of- fensive criticism. Today, the umbrella is used by all. UmhreILas are one of the few things in life that time has changed very little, basi- cally. The design of today's umbrella is directly descend- ed from those early Chinese models. Even the popular col- lapsible feature dates back to 25 B.C. The S&H Green Stamp catalog of more than 50 years ago, illustrated um- brella models very similar to the umbrellas offered in the 1978 catalog. The most expensive um- brella ever made featured a gold frame, fine silk canopy, diamond and ruby handle and was adorned with a thousand pearls. Although this glitter- ing model is not offered in the S&H Green Stamp catalog, stamp-savers can select a simi- lar, rainy day variety for just a few books of stamps. For those who don't save stamps, a smile will have to be their umbrella.

Commissioner of Accounts Jefferson County July 6-2t from losing lures. They hang in rocks and other debris underwater so deep that retrieval is sometimes impos- sible. But according to the fishing experts at Mercury outboards, there are ways to cut your loss to only a few. Their first suggestion is that you constantly check the line or leader several feet above the lure, looking for frayed or cut spots which will weaken the line and cause it to break if you do hang up. When you become snagged underwater, don't pull against the snag; you'll only set the hook deeper into whatever is holding tbe lure back. It's best to position yourself behind the lure, on the opposite side of the snag from where you were when the hang-up occurred. This way, you can often pull the lure backward and it comes loose immediately. Another thought is to run your rod tip as deep as possible, taking out all slack and hoping to push the lure off the snag with the end of the rod. By stretching, you can often reach seven or eight feet deep. If you're out with young or inexperienced anglers, keep them rigged with inexpensive lures. When they do snag one, the loss isn't so great• If, in the end, you can't work the plug loose from whatever's holding it, try a direct pull on the line. The least you'll do is break the line, and that's going to be necessary anyway if the lure is badly snagged. Califano says more budget funds now going to elderly.
