BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER POLICE END 13-HOUR GUN BATTLE--Officers lead James Free- man Gregory, 39, away from his father's farmhouse in Union, S. C after a 13-hour exchange of bullets. Freeman had barri- caded himself inside the house after wounding an eight-year- old Negro girl. The prisoner is a former mental patient. pl Ghastly gainers can learn now to be good losers, thanks to the newly organized Bismarck chap- ter of TOPS, the Take Off Pounds Sensibly organization thai is so- cial but never serves lunch. TOPS is the brainchild of a Milwaukee housewife and her doctor which has mushroomed into a nationwide assault on the bathroom scale which counts ItS cumulative weight loss m scores of tons. Would you like to loose an inch or two around the mid- riff in at!vance of the holi- da3s, or ~hoald you set your ~i~'hts on a twenty or thirty- pound lo3s, with your doe- tor's approval? Make's no dif- ference; TOPS provides the surefire route to health, hap- piness and satisfaction for an 5 e:-er increasing number of the 30.0t10 overweight per- sons in this country. The Bismarck contingent was organized late m October. with 20 charter members. Meeling once a week 19 paid members have already lost more than a hundred potmds among them. Capitol TOPS of Bismarck meels (':/Oil Tlles~ay evenlnR tll the Sweencv Brothers Confer- once I'O')Pl .]',St nol'Ih of B;smarck on Highway 83. Pers6ns intercy.ted in at- tending the Tuesday.

DI'. ~r ([;~rhll ,[ohtlsou of Quain and Ram,~:tad Clime will be Tues- day's guest speaker. TOPS is dedicated to the be- lief that a competitive spirit and group therapy are highly effec- tive in dealing with an over- weight problem. Members meet each week to discuss mutual problems, weigh In. and to hear guest speakers including dletitlons and doctors. The TOPS chap- ter stresses sensible weight loss rather than an all-out flash-in-the- pan effort which too often winds up in a fit of depression and food binge- ing. Members generally take their mission seriously, and meetings are no laughing matter. Out- siders who arrive in a mood of skepticism remain to set their own weight-losing programs in motion. All participants are required to obtain doctors' approval of their respective dieting plans. TOPS members feel that the ~mportant thing is to keep los* ing moderately, rather than re- sort to fad diets and crash pro- grams. North Dakota has many chapters, and local TOPS members are inspired by the spectacular record of the state supervisor, Mrs. Dehner Mevers, Fargo, who became state queen after losing 81v.) pounds. The national TOPS organiza- lion publishes its own ma~azine. largely inspirational in character. and when temptation strikes, each local member has a "call- ing sister" to help keep her on the straight and narrow path towards those lower scale read- rags. For TOPS graduates, there is KOPS. the proud Keep Pounds Off Sensibly affiliate. Membership in TOPS is kept on a confidential basis, at least during the early stages of the Bis:narck chapter's organization. Both men and women belong, and it is expected that addition- al chapters will be organized here in the near future. rl- Public May Attend Guy v-,uraIi0n The public is invited to at- tend festivities surrounding the inaugnration of Governor-Elect William L.
