Editorial . . The Bigamist- Double Trouble A NY MAN IN THESE DAYS of high prices and high taxes, who already has a wife and two children, who willingly acquires another wife and a third child, who is able to keep both .women reasonably happy by dividing his time between them, who is able to support two households and five dependents on a weekly income of $140 and such part time earnings as he can bring in—any man who can do all this is more deserving of admiration than censure. An Akron, Ohio, truck driver did it, and he did it not for one year or two but for five years. In addition, for four of those years he supported a son by a prior marriage (which had been legally terminated by divorce) until the boy reached 18. Unfortunately, he did not bother getting a divorce from his second wife before marrying the third. The reason, he explained to police, was that wife No. 2 was crippled by arthritis and he could not bring himself to leave her, yet he sought "affection and companionship." What tripped him up was when he accidentally gave wife No. 2 a credit card intended for wife No. 3 and the wrong bills began coming to the wrong house. A pretty good argument can probably be made that any man (or woman, since this is an equal society) who is willing and able to support more than one spouse and meet all his responsibilities toward them and the children he may have by them should be permitted to do so ,if he's crazy enough to want to. The law, of course, reflects prevailing mores, which definitely frown on bigamy. The law is also intended to protect innocent people from being victimized by those who would attempt to accumulate wealth through fraudulent multiple marriages. In this case, however, the letter of the law deserves to be tempered by the spirit in which it was broken. All the Akron bigamist seems to have accumulated is a double dose of worries. For Adult Readers Only LJERE IS ONE publication no conscientious parent will leave • ' on the coffee table where his children can find it: The University of Utah Review. In an article in a recent issue, surgery professor Dr. Ralph C. Richards claims that the proportion of bacteria removed from the body by bathing is "almost insignificant, probably no more than 7 per cent." What's worse, he says that when people scrub themselves with brush or cloth they irritate the skin and may wind up with more bacteria than would have been present had they never washed at all. We repeat, keep this publication out of the hands of children. '.V Educator Says: Sex Revolt More Talk Than Action By JACQUELINE KORONA Associated Press Writer EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The sex revolution on the nation's college campuses is mere talk lhan action, an educator re'd Tuesday at the start of a seven-week colloquy on sexuality. While 75 per cent of college coeds say their calssmates are, ' sleeping around," studies show only 20 per cent of the coeds experience premarital secual relations, he said. But "there is more and more evidence the revolt looms on the horizon," said Dr. James McCary, a professor of psychology at the University of Houston. He was the first in a series of 22 guest lectures at the colloquy at Michigan State University for professors and students, including some students attending for academic credit. "This is the first major springboard that we've had to open sex education up in university settings," McCary said. John Gagnon, associate professor of sociology at the State University of New York at Stonybrook and another colloquy le- turer, said he was "struck by the willingness of a large university to take sex out of the closet and take it seriously." "Like it or not," McCary said, sex education must be given in school. "It is not being done in homes." Saying a future revolt is apparent, McCary added, "One can hardly have escaped noticing a change in sexual attitudes in recent years as evidenced by the growing freedom with which sexual topics are discussed." But McCary warned, sexual attitudes can fall under "the pall of such cultural maladies as misinformation and prudery . . with unfortunate ease." He pointed to old *'myths"' feood girls don 't, bad girls do," for instance. "When men and women recognize that free expression of affection is certainly nothing to fear, not a barometer of weakness or effemi- naricy, all their human relation- Fhips, including seuxual ones, will be much fuller and happier."

Alioto, who just returned from a trip abroad, said that during "softly and diplomatically as could." The mayor said he mentioned that San Francisco was founded by a Roman Catholic and had been named after a Catholic saint. "My wife spoke up in Italian and said what I was trying to an audience they had with Pope Paul VI the mayor approached i say was that I wanted a cardi- the subject of appointment of a | nal for San Francisco," said cardinal to the Roman Catholic i Aliolo. "Angelina is a little Archdiocese of San Francisco as : more blunt about those things."

Ogiivie, by making their home a refuge from political pressures. "When we sit down to dinner, we won't be discussing the business of state," said Dorothy Ogilvie, who officially moves into the Executive Mansion Jan. 13. She commented that her husband, a graduate of Kent Law School, prefers to question her arc: their daughter, Elizabeth, J3, about their activities. "Lawyers never talk too much about business," she remarked. Mrs. Ogilvie views her new 2.'' room home in Springfield w'th mixed delight and trepidation. She has never had even part- time help, she said in an interview, but with the governor's residence comes a full staff of servants. "It should be a nice change," she said. Mrs. Ogilvie noted, however, that the public nature of the living quarters will create somewhat of a problem. "I'll have to keep my living room ticked up," she said ruefully. Because the governor-elect has painful memories of changing schools, daughter Liz will remain in the family home near Chicago with a housekeeper until she graduates from 8th grade in June. But the family dog, Scamper, a gray schnauzer, will accompany the couple to the state capital. "And if I have any tiling to say about it," declared Mrs. Ogilvie, "he'll have the run of] tne house." She had her introduction to the mansion late last year, escorted by outgoing Gov. Samuel H. Shapiro and his wife, Gertrude. "Old but pretty," she said of the mansion. "I had looked at the outside before yand wondered—I thought it might be sort of drab," she said. Restoration and expansion of the 114-year-old mansion, ap- provied in 1967, is scheduled to start this year with a $1.5 million appropriation. The Ogil- vies will probably remain in the building until construction starts in mid-July and then relocate in Springfield during come 18 months of repair work. The three-story Victorian structure is an enormous c.'winge from the family's six- r)om ranch style house in N;jrthfield, a northern suburb of Chicago. Mrs. Ogilvie said she's glad to let special committees appointed by the legislature make | the major decorating decisions ;oncerning the mansion because 'They're the experts — they i k) ow more than I do." But she expressed hope that her favorite colors — blues and greens — will be taken into consideration. Unpretentious and down to earth, Mrs. Ogilvie is a diminutive brunette — her hair swept into an austere bun — who can fit into her teen-age daughter's clothes. She took up golf "in self defense" after her husband migrated to the links every weekend, and has nurtured a number of prize winning cactus plants. When Ogilvie was courting an advertising secretary named Drrothy Shriver 20 years ago, they spent many an evening at Young Republican meetings. It was an inexpensive date and she didn't really mind. Her family had always supported the GOP. It was good preparation for her new responsibilities as wife of Illinois, highest elected official, but Dorothy Ogilvie still is nervous when she's the center of attention. Basically shy, she steadfastly reluses to deliver any political speeches. Perhaps the best part of vic- lory is the opportunity to see more of her husband. The new Reagan Urges Hit Turmoil On Campus By BILL BOYARSKY Associated Press Writer SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Ronald Reagan, offering California his 1969 program, Mailed on the state legislature today to strike hard against campus turmoil by increasing penalties for students, nonstu- dents and faculty involved in disturbances. The Republican governor, in his annual "State of the State" message, also offered "a substantial personal income tax reduction." He didn't specify who would get it, but previously he had promised it to middle-income families hit hardest by his 1967 billion-dollar tax increase. Pledging another year of economy, Reagan said, "Under no circumstances will I support By ^ ASSORTED PRBSS nv sign into law any tax m-| Today ig WednesdaV) Jan> 8> the eigth day of 1969.

And, he asked for new pornography controls and new weapons in the war against crime, including giving police authority to use electronic listening devices when a judge approves. The speech was prepared for a joint session of the legislature. Republicans now hold narrow majorities in the Senate and Assembly, where Democrats had majorities in the first two years of Reagan's administration. Many of his plans for the third year of his term were spelled out in general terms, but Reagan got more specific when he talked about the issue of unrest on California's public college campuses. "Such proposals would, among other things, increase the legal penalties for assaults on teachers and students, provide for the explusion of students or the dismissal of teachers who interfere with the educational process and strengthen the trespass laws to keep trouble makers off the campus," he said Law For Today...

NEWS BRIEF NEW YORK (AP) — A penny taxed is not a penny earned, says Queens Councilman Joseph Modugno. Modugno received a notice from the city recently which said that he owed one penny in back taxes. He paid the penny but not without noting that the city spent six cents in postage to collect it. NEW YORK (AP) — Vice President-elect Spiro T. Agnew says he'll need only one year in office to erase any image of him as "the Neanderthal man." "I fully feel," Agnew said, "that by the time a year has gone by, and I'll have been functioning in this expanded vice president's role that's been given me, and particularly in regard to intergovernmental relationships with the cities, that what I do and what I stand for is going to be so obvious that it's going to be very difficult for the people who are attempting to cast me in the role of the Neanderthal man to continue to think that way." He made his remarks Tuesday night on the CBS television program "60 Minutes," recorded a week ago in Washington. Agnew resigned Tuesday as Maryland's governor. Chosen as his successor by the Democratic-controlled General Assembly was Marvin Mandel, 48, speaker of the state House of Delegates Agnew said in the television interview he could do nothing consciously to alter his image, adding: "I think the worst mis take I could make would be to attempt to placate and satisfy my critics. — Agnew declared it is "a fiction" to say he was 'jerked from a zoning board into the vice presidency." Noting his experience as governor and county executive, he continued, "I don't think it's fair to say that suddenly a yokel has descended upon the national government." At one point in the campaign, the vice president-elect said, he was so "depressed" by criticism that he wondered if he could get up the next day and go through with it. But, he said, he decided he had to "develop a little skin" and had no trouble after that. Agnew admitted he had been hurt during the presidential campaign by what he said. "Total frankness in politics," he said, "is dangerous because a flick of a picture and a part of a statement without the modifications that go with it can be terribly damaging." In answer to a question, Agnew said he contributed little to recent foreign policy discussions with President-elect Nixon and his top aides gathered at Key Biscayne, Fla. I don't think I made too, much of a contribution," Agnew i said. "I'm no expert on foreign policy, but I've read a lot recently on it. "I was there to learn and I learned quite a bit." . Agnew was asked if he might feel at all like former President Harry S. Truman at the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt that "the sun and moon and stars had fallen on him." "I'd like to say—I'd like to appear supennodest and say yes," Agnew replied, "but I can't in good conscience." .
