Well...the Equal Rights Amendment may have been kilied recently, but if you think you've heard the last of equality and women’s rights, you're crazy! Women are a growing political and work force in this country. More and more they are competing with men for jobs that were, up until a few years ago, dominated exclusively by males. Take the U.S. Armed Forces, for instance. Women have joined the Military ranks and are now training and fighting right along- side the men. Which is why we think it's now time to update some old military fighting songs. So here's: ARTIST: JACK RICKARD Take off your a-pron: War-riors are we!

One of the best-selling “underground” books in recent years is something called “How To Pick Up Girls!” It es frustrated, horny guys hints on how to approach girls, and supplies them with some sure-fire opening pick-up lines. Well, the trouble with these pick-up lines is: they're much too “general.” All girls are not alike! They come from different places, from dif- ferent social and cultural backgrounds. We think you should hit on girls with lines that specifically ap- peal to each of them. In other words, you gotta talk their language. Here, then, are some MAD hints on— HOW TO PICK UP GIRLS OF VARIOUS TYPES...IN VARIOUS PLACES 'ARTIST: SANOY KOSSIN WRITER: ARNIE KOGEN B general note for you beginners: There are certain pick-up lines that absolutely do not work anywhere any more in the 1980's!
