"off duty" 1970 - 1997 - eine Werbezeitung für's US Militär

Die in diesem amerikanischen (Freizeit-) Shopping-Magazin angeprie- senen Produkte waren auschließlich amerikanischen und kanadischen Militärangehörigen ausserhalb der USA zugänglich - also zu kaufen - vor allem zu ganz ungewöhnlich (verblüffend) niedrigen US $ Military-Preisen. Zu der einführenden "off duty" Seite geht es hier lang.

.

Das ist unser erster Jahrgang, die 1970/71er Hefte fehlen.

So fangen wir fast mitten drin im weltweiten Hifi-Boom an. Die Welt schien nämich noch in Ordnung, außer in Vietnam. Hier bei uns in Deutschland merkten wir von dem Schrecken des Djungelkrieges so gut wie nichts, außer in den wenigen Fernsehsendungen im Auslandsjournal.

Die Amerikaner hatten eine strenge Kontrolle, was aus "ihrem" Kriegsgebiet" nach draußen publiziert werden durfte. Und was aus Nordvietnam an Bildmaterial im damals öffentlich rechtlichen Fernsehen kam, war - für uns - nicht so recht glaubwürdig. Alles roch nach Pfadfinder Abenteuern.

Auf meine Fragen, warum sich intelligente junge amerikanische Studenten für 4 Jahre bei der Air-Force verpflichteten und dann auch noch mal verlängerten, war die Antwort : So kommen wir nicht nach Vietnam. - Ich konnte das damals mit 21 Jahren im trauten geschützten "Hotel Mama" nicht einschätzen. Wir Deutschen wurde ja nicht zum Militärdienst eingezogen. Wie oben gesagt - Die Welt schien noch in Ordnung.

Die off duty und die (US-)AUDIO, die lagen da stoßweise rum.

In dem von einer Gruppe befreundeter junger Amerikaner gemieteten Haus war ich oft zu Gast. Ich hatte den Vorteil, ich war gänzlich unvoreingenommen. Viele deutsche Jungsozialisten brüllten immer noch "AMI go home." Ich nicht. Es waren dort Jungs wie ich, sogar mehrere junge amerikanische Mädchen waren mit aus den USA rüber gekommen und ich hatte die Chance meines Lebens, (amerikanisches) Englisch sprechen zu müssen und zu lernen. Das hatte mir 20 Jahre später enorm viel geholfen, als ich in Miami war und mitreden konnte.

Jedenfalls konnte und durfte ich die US-Hifi-Zeitschriften durchschmökern, die dort stapelweise herumgelegen hatten. Und dort standen tolle Beschreibungen und Tests drinnen und diese irren Preise hier von der off-duty. Und natürlich alles in Englisch. Also Lernen mit Interesse und Spaß war damals angesagt.

Die gesamten 1972er Editorials - also die "Back Pages" - kommen alle 12 hier auf dieser Seite ...

Ursprünglich hatte ich die Back-Page Inhalte aller 12 Ausgaben in 1972 auf einer Seite untergebracht. Das mit den monatlichen Back-Page Texten auf einzelnen Web-Seiten war nicht hilfreich. Viele der Informationen sind absolut unwichtig und füllen nur den Platz und versperren den Blick. Andere Informationen sollte man im chronologischen Kontext lesen können.

Januar 1972 - Das Editorial von Walter Rios

'The Back Page' is a monthly OFF DUTY editorial feature
.

.

  • Monstrous power amps, equalizers and some of the new ultra-ultra audio equipment from California are featured in this month's OFF DUTY SHOPPER. Some of these units have just been introduced to the military market within the last two months. The excitement starts on page 79.
  • Photo bugs, check out our first review of darkroom equipment starting on page 72. In addition to what's listed, Simmon-Omega will make equipment available through clubs starting this month.
  • Letter Dept: People want to know what to dowwhen their amplifier starts to motorboat - that is, starts making a noise which sounds like an outboard motor. This condition is almost always caused by faulty capacitors - if you're an electronics buff, you may be able to fix it yourself - otherwise, call in a technician.
  • Spare parts for Sony tape recorders, according to the rep, can be ordered through your aud^o club.
  • Questions which you send to us should be addressed to the technical editor.
  • Clubs: December 15 was the big day for the Rhein-Main Audio Center which had a good turnout for its grand opening. Rhein-Main A.C. used to be the Darmstadt Audio Club - just a note for those of you still hunting at the old location.
  • Aschaffenburg and Bamberg both have new clubs - check their addresses on our club list.
  • No general agreement has been reached on 4-channel disc recording yet, but the record companies are plunging ahead anyway. You can get the latest status report on page 69 of this issue.
  • Don't be surprised if Kodak springs an interesting announcement in the near future.
  • Stereo headphone prospects should wait until they read our big headphone SHOPPER - coming next month. Also.check-out our electronic flash review in February.
  • Military club menus are eligible to be entered in the National Restaurant Association's menu contest. Chefs and club managers can contact OFF DUTY for more information.
  • What's happening to prices? It's anybody's guess. With the dollar moving around, the yen uncertain and phase two also in the picture, prices might do anything. Therefore, you should verify listed prices before making a choice - even in the short time between quotation and publication there may be changes.

  • Ready to buy audio gear? Go out of your way to see the informative mini shows put on by manufacturers at audio clubs. Club managers can tell you who will be where and when.
  • INSIDE TIP - Back Pagers with 4-channel gear can latch on to those yummy quad discs mentioned on page 69 of our January issue. Mike Shen has 3,000 of them salted away in a secret vault. He'll sell them on a first come basis. About $2.50 a toss. Mike's address is at the bottom of any Sansui ad in this issue.
  • Got a Manon projector? You bought it in the Pacific and can't get parts for it? Write to Manon Products Co., P. 0. Box 13 86, Huntington Beach, California.
  • Photo types who read our Super-8 Shopper and then fruitlessly searched for the Braun-Nizo S560 or S800 thought the cameras didn't exist. But, the feature laden supers (up to llx zoom) are now available in photo clubs. Unusual prices!
  • Letters: Two readers have asked where they can buy Tel-efunken products. Just look in your EES mail order catalog (Magnetophon M291 and Compact 2000X available plus a lot of other items through special order).
  • Also queries about Lenco turntables. Yes, they do exist in the military market. Check our December issue. Then check the reader service card.
  • Introduced in January in photo clubs was the Minolta Hi-Matic 5. This little 35 is perfect for a wife who wants something small enough to put. into a purse, easy to operate but still high quality. Also, Minolta's new subminiature 16QT will be available this summer.
  • EES goes 4-channel March 1, when they'll start vending the Sansui QR-1500 receiver. Good news for those of you who don't have a nearby audio club.
  • Altec's ultr^-bookshelf 874A Segovia finally made the scene. 'The Frankfurt and Wiesbaden clubs are now demonstrating the $205 speaker.
  • Clubs; Larry Dean resigns soon as honcho of the Augsburg Audio Club. Congratulations on a nice job, Larry.
  • Next month we look at microphones in a section which will show you how you have access to some of the big-name microphone manufacturers at military prices. For photogs, a slide projector Shopper. And, as our contribution to spring fever, a bigger-than-ever motorcycle Shopper in the near future.

AFTER VIETNAM; WHAT THEN?

.

  • Anmerkung : Wir sind noch im May 1972 und der Vietnam Krieg ist noch nicht zuende.

.
If every single U.S. soldier in Vietnam was brought home, and NOT reassigned to any other Pacific base, there would still be 298,000 troops, and over 160,000 dependents, on permanent duty stations in the Pacific.

Plus an additional 175,000 in the Pacific fleet (stationed in Hawaii and U.S. west coast) who visit Pacific ports periodically and stock up on duty-free merchandise.

If every retail outlet in Vietnam was eliminated, and NOT re-located anywhere else, there would still be 1.236 outlets left.

That's 46% MORE outlets than in Europe where there are 310,000 troops, and 230,000 dependents.

If absolutely nothing was sold in Vietnam PXs, the PACEX (Pacific Exchange) market would still be worth #382 million/yr. That's #50 million LARGER than total sales in PXs in Europe last year.

But the Vietnam military market in Vietnam is not disappearing completely. It is decreasing, of course, but many of the troops leaving Vietnam are merely being re-assigned to other Pacific duty stations. And many of the retail outlets are also moving elsewhere.
.

Und hier wird ein andere Seite der Welt aufgelistet, der potentielle Markt für Konsumgüter und deren Anzeigen :

To demonstrate the exact size of the Pacific market, here's a country-by-country breakdown.
.

Locations_/_Militärstationen_weltweit Anzahl_Soldaten    
South Vietnam 69,000 (May 1. 1972 - level promised by President Nixon)  
Thailand 32,000    
Philippines 18,000    
Taiwan 9,000    
Okinawa 45,000    
Korea 43,000    
Japan 30,000    
Marianas 10,000    
Guam 10,000    
Hawaii 36,000    
7th Fleet 65,000    
       
in der Summe aller Länder 367,000 + 160,000 dependents / Angehörige  

.
Although Hawaii is part of the continental U.S., it is still part of the PACEX system, so it is part of the Pacific market you're selling to.

MARKET COMPARISON (Vergleich) Pacific vs. European

Fiscal year 1971___________ Pacific Exchange System (PACEX) and
  European Exchange System (EES)
  Pacific Europe
Gesamtumsatz: $770 million $329 million
Retail/Food/Automotive Läden : 2.487 1.507
Mitarbeiter : (24,058 with Vietnam) 13,311 17,522
Mail Order Catalog Business: $82 million $3.9 million

Ganz wichtig für Inserenten: Die Steigerung der Kaufkraft .....

.

  1. PACEX sales increased slightly less than 1% over 1970 ($ 5 million) while troop strength decreased 30%.
  2. EES sales increased 5.1% over 1970 while troop strength decreased 5%.
  3. PACEX sales have increased 325% in only 5 years. From $181 million in 1966 to $770 million in 1971.
  4. Sales in 1968, the year of peak troop strength in Vietnam, were $576 million.

.
Thus, since troop withdrawals began, PACEX sales have Increased $194 million. Explanation: Nine pay increases in the last eight years. And high turnover of personnel.

Was Soldaten im US Militär verdient hatten .....

The lowest ranking man in the service now makes $ 4,800 annually in basic pay, quarters and subsistence allowances, and the tax advantage of those tax-free allowances. A corporal makes $ 6,189 per year. A 1st Lt makes $ 11,045.

Die Soldaten bzw. die Kaufkraft gehen ja nicht verloren

The Pacific Fleet numbers 240,000 men. That includes all men stationed in the South Pacific, Hawaii and west coast U.S.

Those ships make frequent visits to duty-free ports in the PACEX system, thus explaining part of the huge market there.

What's more, as ground troops are pulling out of Vietnam, the Navy is taking a more active role in the Pacific. Thus, the number of customers passing through this market will remain high for the foreseeable future.

Also inseriert mal schön bei uns, der Erfolg ist gesichert

You can't sell this market without advertising in it. OFF DUTY-Pacific, with 100,000 distribution, is your best choice.

Because OFF DUTY talks about leisure time activities and duty-free bargains. And every GI has leisure time, and everybody loves a bargain.

OFF DUTY is your bargain. Call us for more facts.

  • Cartridge and cassette recorders and SLR cameras are covered this month in our shoppers. Two of the most interesting and fast-moving areas in hi-fi and photography. It all starts on page 91.
  • Watch for new goodies from Kenwood - they're supposed to spring new ideas and styling on us at any moment.
  • 4-channel: JVC and RCA are now coming on strong with the discrete (carrier-type) disc - here comes a real knock-down, drag-out battle! See our next issue for a progress report.
  • Some of the new open-reel tape machines in the article on page 83 are so new that they are in short supply. For instance, the minimum waiting time for the Revox A77 Mark III is three months.
  • Letters : "I've picked out a receiver which says it can handle four speakers to go with my 4-channel tape deck. Is it appropriate?" A.B., APO 09757
  • Careful, A.B. With the model you mentioned, they mean four speakers for stereo sound, not 4-channel. Look for a unit that specifically says,"4-channel."
  • Clubs: a late report indicates the new Karamursel (Turkey) Photo Hobby Shop is growing rapidly. Manager James E. Moore says they now have equipment for sale, develop color slides and have a complete lab for black and white work.
  • On the OFF DUTY Pamphlet Shelf this month:
  • Tips for Photographing Your Trip Abroad - a good elementary guide for people traveling in Europe. 20 pages. (Kodak)
  • How to Photograph Auto Racing - techniques and suggestions for putting fast-moving cars on film. (Vivitar - Ponder & Best)
  • (Copies sent free of charge to OFF DUTY readers. Use our Reader Information Service card for your request.)

Dear Reader:

You may sometimes think that no one cares - but if you bend the manager's ear and ask for your favorite brands, and if you fill out the customer request slips, it's possible that your pet product may crop up within the next few months on the commissary shelves.

Both Army and Air Force commissaries in Europe are planning to extend their selection of cigarette brands as well as health and beauty items as long as they feel that you really want name brand products.

The people at TASCOM headquarters in Worms are keeping daily tabs on who writes in asking for what products, and assure us that if there's really a demand, the products will be ordered. Air Force commissaries first broke the health and beauty barrier in the spring of 1971, offering about 50 items for sale in larger sizes and often at lower prices than in the PX. Army commissaries followed suit in summer with a selection of about 77 different items, and the number kepi: increasing.

Twenty-four commissaries in Germany have followed the Rhein-Main Air Force commissary's lead in ordering items on a direct-delivery basis. This means fresher, newer merchandise to the customer. By the end of 1972, customers at Air Force commissaries in Italy will also be buying, at cornstores using direct-delivery.

While Air Force commissaries can choose their own products, more or less at random, Army commissaries choose from a list of 2,300 line items. The GI housewife who is close to both Army and Air Force commissaries is a lucky girl. She'll find a wide selection of different items.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The next few months will see a big difference in the GI club scene in Europe, if a plan to merge some of the entertainment buying for Officers', NCO and EM clubs in the same area goes through. The idea is that the custodian for one large Officers' club will be selecting the entertainment for all the Officers' clubs in his area, and the same for the NCO and EM clubs. This is supposed to bring in more varied shows and possibly some co-op booking of giant spectaculars featuring top American soul and rock performers.

  • TV Sets and stereo consoles are the featured items in this month's OFF DUTY shoppers. The fun begins on page 81 and doesn't stop until you reach the end of the mag.
  • New in Pioneer's SX stereo receiver series: The SX 424, 525, 626, 727 and 828, all available now in GI sales outlets. The SX 525 and 828 are being sold through audio clubs, the others through EES.
  • Also new in audio clubs (beginning Aug. 1) are the Fisher Studio Standard speakers. Something to watch for.
  • More on the club scene; The Bitburg Audio and Photo Club, in case you haven't noticed it yet, has changed its hours. As of the end of May, the club is open from 12 noon to 6 p.m., instead of 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Two more hours to admire all the stereo and photo goodies on the shelves.
  • Dynaco speakers are being spotlighted this month at five audio clubs. Traveling Dynaco representatives open the first show July 12 and 13 at the Kitzingen Audio Club and at Ramstein. On July 15, 16, and 17, the speakers are being shown at Rhein-Main Audio Club, July 19-20 at Ramstein again, July 20-22 at Herzo Base Audio Club and July 25-26 at Bitburg.
  • By the time you read this, some lucky bowlers will be making big plans to go to the 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Munich.

The winners are the five European Area bowling league members whose averages show the greatest improvement at the conclusion of the league schedule.

  • A Vacation Tip; Just because the hotel has a sign indicating it features the American Plan doesn't necessarily mean it is expensive. The designations American Plan (AP) European Plan (EP)and Modified American Plan (MAP) simply refer to the meals included in your accommodation.
  • AP means three meals a day are included with your room. MAP includes two meals --- usually a breakfast and dinner --- with the room. EP --- in a majority of Stateside hotels, motels and inns --- means no meals are included.
  • But in most European establishments, EP means you get a Continental breakfast -- roll, butter, jam and coffee.

600 EXHIBITORS TAKE A STAND AT COLOGNE'S GIANT PHOTO SHOW

Off Duty / Europe / August 72-8 - BY DAVID L. MILLER

That biennial new-product bash known as Photokina is just about to take its usual stand in Cologne (Sept 23 - Oct 1). If past trends continue, this trade show will be big - more than 600 exhibitors in the 12-hangar-like halls - and newsworthy. Among the newsmakers will be (at last count) 47 Japanese manufacturers and about 40 from the U.S. As usual, nobody is saying anything as to what new goodies they plan to spring on the photo public, but here are a few ideas.

The big thing will be more automatic exposure 35mm SLRs. Already shown in Japan but not officially unveiled to the rest of the world is the Pentax ES (Electro Spotmatic) with its electronically controlled automatic focal-plane shutter. Its meter is of the average reading type, at wide open aperture. Yashica's Electro AX makes use of their current electronically controlled shutter and unique viewfinder signal lights. Minolta's auto baby is coming but still under wraps. Fuji and Canon are likely to join the race too.

On the non-automatic front Fuji's ST801 will be a full aperture reading version of the current ST701. Olympus will check in with its M-l - a 1%-lb. full frame SLR with 30 new lenses and many accessories.
Now that Kodak's Pocket Instamatic (110 film cartridge) is over the hump, you can expect some activity in that direction. Though there may not be any 110 cameras shown, there may be other versions (Agfa, Fuji) of this new mini size film.

Look for Vivitar to spring a whole new series of lenses developed with the help of some American designers and computers. Super 8 will have its fling too as manufacturers go for more higher-priced and smaller-sized movie cameras.

There will be much more. Best thing to do is head for Photokina and see for yourself. Go where the action is. It's easy - just follow the crowds.

While this is being written, German and American officials are discussing whether to ban a number of Stateside frozen and canned meat products from commissaries in Germany. The U.S. Governement actually announced a stop of certain new supplies from U.S. meat packers in May, then lifted the ban while talks are going on in Bonn.

The Germans say that some American meat products do not meet their pure foods standards and are illegally on sale here. The complaint is against American pork which Germans insist must be protected against brucellosis.

American meat packers counter that the disease has never troubled U.S. pork. Another complaint is that American canned goods are not dated, a plea that Ralph Nader has also made.

About a year ago, Great Britain succeeded in banning some American meat products from U.S. commissaries there because the food did not meet UK standards.

Photo Phans Phocus on Photokina

Photokina is the photo fair at Cologne where more than 600 manufacturers from all over the world will be displaying their latest in photo equipment from Sept. 23. to Oct. 1. 1972

The fair will be open to the public on Sept. 23 and 24, and from Sept. 28 to Oct. 1. Price for one visit on these days is DM 5.-, or about $1.60, with no discount for the military. The only discount offered is by the Bundesbahn (the German Railway), which will give 25 per cent reduction to anyone on his way to the Photokina.

This year a special attempt is made to interest the younger generation in photography and related subjects.For this purpose the Rheinsaal has been made into a pop center with projectors for special effects, gigantic photographs and a Laser beam projector. Surprises in the audio-visual field have been promised.

The special attraction this year is a movie filmed exclusively for the pop center, using six cameras simultaneously. Six projectors will be instrumental in showing a movie some 30 yards wide featuring auto racing, surfboard-in9,; parachuting and deep-sea diving to show new possibilities in the techniques of movie production.

The hours of operation for the Photokina displays are 9 am to 6 pm. The pop center will be open from 11 am .to 9 pm.

The largest pop festival on film will have its premiere at the pop center. This is a composition of film strips of nearly 100 pop groups, singers and other stars, selected from movies taken at their live performances. Mentioning but a few, they will show Otis Redding, Arthur Brown, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and the Who as well as excerpts from the large pop festivals held in the United States and England in the last few years.
Each evening, live performances will be given by about 40 different international stars and groups, with every type of music represented.

But before we get completely carried away by all this extracurricular activity, let us remember that the reason for all this and the MAIN ATTRACTION is the very latest in photo equipment being shown by over 600 manufacturers.

Dear Reader:

.
If you shuddered when you opened a box of commissary Ice cream and found it had shrunk up and seemed to be huddling in one corner, you'll delight at the new Good Humor ice cream your commissary manager probably will be ordering soon.

It used to be impossible to bring American ice cream to Europe (the kind you ve been getting is made in a plant in Germany and sometimes tastes great, sometimes indifferent). The reason was that it had to be shipped at a temperature of 20 degrees below zero and maintained at that point.

Now Thomas Lipton has come up with a process that enables ice cream to be shipped from the States at the same temperature as other frozen foods.

Several excellent brands have been marked for delivery to commissaries in Europe. It's all part of the direct-order, direct-delivery plan we've been telling you about.

Air Force commissaries are pretty much on their own in deciding which American products grace the shelves of the local stores, but the Army commissaries are just now getting their chance. They now can order 5 per cent of the American name brand nonperishable items they'll sell.

If you're a regular reader, you've known about this for quite awhile. How's your relationship with your commissary manager?

Have you been telling him about all those things you can't live without — like Uncle Dunk's corn pone for those hungry mouths gathered around the TV set or that Pussycat cat lobster for Tabby? If not, now's the time to do it.

If you can supply the name and address of the supplier, you'll make it easier for the commissary manager. And if you just happened to bring along a can or a container from your last leave in the States, show it to the commissary chief.

"County Fair," a big meeting of American name brand suppliers this summer brought out the crowds at the NCO club in Worms and resulted in some major changes in the commissaries' ordering lists.

The suppliers had the chance to show off their finest new products to a group of TASCOM and Air Force commissary officers and you, the customer, got a chance to say which ones you found irresistible.

Cake mixes proved among the most popular items on the prospective order list and now your commissary manager can choose new sorts of mixes from Duncan Hines, Betty Crocker and Pillsbury.

You'll be able to turn out some fine and fancy new desserts shortly. And if you know of something others might like, your commissary can serve as a test for the item,and it's likely that other commissaries in the system will order it, too.

Advertiser's Newsletter

DO YOU KNOW THESE SLOGANS ?

.

  • If you can't trust ................, who can you trust?
  • You deserve a break today.
  • Try it, you'll like it.
  • Nhhhh, it's a great feeling.

.

If you live and work in the U.S., you do. But if you're a U.S. military man stationed overseas, you probably don't. Because only about a third of the military overseas are fresh from the stateside world.

TWO-thirds have been living abroad for more than a year. They don't see and hear the barrage of TV and radio ads that make these slogans part of the everyday language back home. So if you count on stateside advertising to spill over to the military market overseas ... well, you're making a big mistakel (Overseas they haven't heard that slogan either.)

If your business depends on the family trade, you're even worse off. Families rotate less frequently. On one overseas tour of duty, a typical military family stays in the same location for 2-4 years. Thus a military "sponsor" can see his dependent kid start and finish 4 years of high school WITHOUT EVER BEING EXPOSED TO YOUR ADVERTISING.

Introduce a new family product stateside, with the usual TV fanfare, and there's a time lag of at least 1-2 years before your commissary customers overseas are even aware of it. Small wonder that overseas exchanges and commissaries often choose to "wait and see" before stocking your exciting new product, regardless of its stateside track record and share of market.

What can you do about it?

You can shorten the time lag by carrying your advertising message overseas. Because even though U.S. personnel overseas are "typical American boys and girls" raised on Wheaties, Keds and tootsie rolls, they'll lose the brand-consciousness you've built up, if they're away from your advertising message any length of time.

Remember, the overseas serviceman and his dependents are typical American consumers, accustomed to huge quantities of advertising. They expect it. In fact, they look for it. Are you looking for them?

Und hier die Zahlen

OFF DUTY distributes 75,000 copies in Europe..100,000 in the Pacific, every month. That's more than any other single magazine in this market. And more than the military edition of any U.S. magazine.

Could be, your overseas customers are looking for you in OFF DUTY.
DID YOU KNOW...

...that overseas commissaries did $259.6 million worth of business last year?

...that commissary sales in Europe were one-third as great as all sales and services of EES?

...that exchange sales in CONUS were only 6% more than exchange sales overseas? Yet, only 30% of the troops are stationed overseas?

...that those 30% stationed overseas are responsible for 48% of exchange sales?

...that 16% of the Navy men are stationed overseas, two-thirds of whom are unaccompanied by dependents. Nevertheless, they are responsible for 13% of worldwide Navy commissary sales?

...those same Navy personnel spent 93% more for household appliances in FY 71 than their stateside brothers, and overall, they spent 182% more in exchanges per capita?

...that if every single U.S. serviceman in Vietnam was brought home, and not reassigned to any other Pacific base, there would still be a market of over 300,000 troops in the Far East?

...if every retail outlet in Vietnam were eliminated and not relocated anywhere else, there would still be more outlets left than in Europe?

...if the military market in Vietnam disappeared completely, the Pacific market would still greatly exceed the dollar volume in Europe?

More detailed facts, figures and analyses

...... can be obtained from an OFF DUTY representative. Ask for a copy of "After Vietnam, What Then" and the September Advertiser's Newsletter, compiled by the OFF DUTY Research Department. We'll be glad to send you a copy.

Anmerkung zum Monat 12

Weihnachten - als ich 1969/1970 meine amerikanischen Freunde kennenlernte, war Religion nie ein Thema. Auch waren die Jungs und die Mädchen Sonntags nie in einer Kirche auf der "Wiesbaden Airbase" oder in der Kirche in den US-Kasernen anzutreffen. Nicht daß das Thema tabu war, es war selbst zu Weihnachten kein Thema. Bei den hier lebenden amerikanischen Familien mit jüngeren Kindern hingegen war es ein ganz wichtiges Thema, wie ich viele viele Jahre später mitbekam. Selbst bei sehr lieben, freundlichen und umgänglichen Nachbarn mit hohem Intelligenzniveau wurde vor jedem Essen ein Gebet gesprochen. Das wußte sicher auch der Herausgeber dieser off-duty Seiten und das sollte abgebildet werden. Hier also das Weihnachts Editorial.

Dear Reader:

Picture a shapely British girl, towering 6 ft. tall on giant-stride, super soled silver boots, tightly laced over the knees. She's wearing a thigh-high purple mini,skirt, tight purple sweater with Juliet-style puff sleeves and purple leotards. Her boyfriend, stalking along King's Road at her side, is wearing boots with 2-in. soles which make him almost as tall as she. Under the floor-length black velvet cape he wears shabby jeans.

Would you give them a second glance? If you lived in London, probably not. ITve prowled through the high fashion boutiques and swinging pop clothes counters in London,Paris, Munich and all over Germany and have found the kookiest,kra-ziest clothes in London. Deep, red lipstick complements the look which might well be called the "Portobello Road Look. ?f Many of the outfits look as if they came from the famous flea market.

This spring, the kids are supposed to trade the flamboyant look for the conservative fashion scene. "Back to the classics, " predicts Monsieur David, sales director for a leading Berlin fashion designer. He foresees delicate small prints, neat cloche hats and turbans and what he terms "intensely elegant" ladylike styles. Slacks are supposed to be out, shirtwaist dresses In. Mint or bottle green, pink and strawberry are strong colors for 1973* The only part of the casual look which will remain big is sweaters -- and they'll be seen everywhere, even in the most unlikely places.

Soft chiffon cocktail dresses are to be topped with chunky dolman-sleeved waist length sweaters, daytime dresses combined with long sweaters instead of jackets and even long dinner dresses are accompanied by casual, wool wrap-around sweaters. Twin sweater sets top floor length skirts.

Men's styles will be less extreme, as the ladies eliminate their pants suits and leave wearing the pants to the men again. Clog shoes are going out.of style. For women's shoes, the look is definitely open, with higher heels and neat straps clutching just below the ankle.

+ + +

A few months ago you read here that the Germans wanted to keep some Stateside beef and pork out of American commissaries in this country because the meat hadn't been inspected for brucellosis. American suppliers insisted there was no brucellosis inspection in the States because the disease isn't a problem there. Both sides have been talking the matter over in Bonn, and now the Germans have agreed to let Americans in Germany go on eating U.S. meat.
