It uas a disappointment to many ot us that President
Carter's visit to Asheville had to be postponed, but he was
deeply involved in vital business. Peace in the Middle East is
important to the whole world, not to just a few countries in
that area.
It's always hazardous to predict events in that volatile
territory. Nevertheless, President Carter's efforts should be
applauded as being in the best interest of all of us, as have
the efforts of every American president since Harry Truman
who has had to struggle with the Middle East question.
The delay does serve one purpose. It gives us a little more
time to better prepare an old time Western North Carolina

of the United States makes a personal visit to our part of the

Two university of Toronto psycholo
gists report that persons who quickly
fall head-over heels in love are apt to be
people who believe that the fates, the
stars or cosmic forces guide their lives.
On the other hand, say psychologists
Kenneth and Karen Dion, people who
are highly rational or pragmatic almost
never fall in love at first sight.
The Dions, writing in the Journal of
Clinical Psychology say they have also
discovered a difference between the
way men and women deal with their
emotions when they are in love.
Women, they report, are more likely
to be elated and euphoric when in love:
men, on the other hand, often find love
disruptive and incomfortable and com
monly loose sleep over it.

Maybe if you want to get better grade-
es, you should get a job making hambur
gers at Batam Chef. In any case, start
working. A recent study found that
students working part-time jobs under
work-study programs get better grades
than their non-working peers.
The study, conducted by the Universi
ty of Texas - Austin’s Financial Aid Of
fice, indicated that both undergraduate
and graduate working students averaged
anywhere from .06 to .11 grade points
higher than non-working students on
financial aid, and than the general stu
dent body. UT’s study results, more
over, were about the same as other such
studies conducted nationwide, added
Ben Stough, associate director of fi
nancial aid at UT.
Stough speculated that the higher
GPAs might have something to do with
workstudy students laboring as research
or lab assistants in their field of study,
thus giving them more experience and
knowledge in those fields.
Not just anyone can float a woman in
thin air . . . make a rabbit appear from
an empty top hat ... or cause objects
to vanish into space. Bob Kramer can!
But then again, he’s not just anyone!
A member of The Society of American
Magicians and International Brother
hood of Magicians, Bob is regarded by
his peers as one of America s top illus
ionists. A magician’s magician.
Bob’s career in magic began as a
hobby in his early teens. Starting with
simple sleight-of-hand tricks, he gradu
ally grew into larger more,complicat
ed illusions. Somewhere along the line
he decided to make magic/performing
his life’s work. Since then he has
amassed a collection of fullscale magical
effects valued at over $75,000, many
of which he created and perfected him
spotlights Bob’s mastery of the art of
misdirection. It’s the culmination of
years of experience and experiment^
tion, reflecting Bob’s philosophy that
magic should be a flowing, multi-
sensory experience - not a series of un
related tricks. The show features the
world’s most spectacular and unbe
lievable illusions, including: THE CRE
LADY and the incredible BUZZ SAW.
Although his home is Crand Rapids,
ML, Bob is usually on the road. He does
around 200 shows a year in colleges,
clubs, cruise ships and state fairs . . .
sharing the stage with the likes of Frank
Sinatra, Robert Klein, Cuess Who,
Ceorge Carlin and more! He travels na
