A recent DOII'TPAY survey released by the Ameri HOUSEWIVES feel the government should provide compensation. Among those who enthusiastically support pay for housewives are young women, 18-29, and female college graduates. White-collar workers and professionals are more supportive of the idea than blue-collar workers. Surprisingly enough, the group most deeply opposed to payments to housewives is of women aged 65 to 85. The other group most opposed to compensation is of men in the 30-44 age bracket. can Council on Life Insurance reveals that 74 of the respondents interviewed nationally feel that housewives should not "be paid for their work. One in four Americans, however, "believes that housewives should "be paid for looking after home and children. In this group, more than six out of 10 think the husbands should do the paying.

R0LWAL1NG IN THE HIMALAYAS Trekking in the HEW 'i;r SPORT Because euphoria is one of the first symptoms of altitude sickness, the afflicted hiker frequently ignores the nausea, headache and dizziness. Soon breathing becomes less effective, hands and feet swell, respiration and circulation ultimately cease. For these cases, the only remedy is rapid descent to a hospital where oxygen and medication are available. When trekking began late in the 1960's, tourists had to hike up through the jungles to get to the peaks: hence, they were acclimated before they reached the very high elevations. But nowadays trekkers are flown in by small planes and set off to conquer a 10,000-foot peak before they are accustomed to the altitude. Himalayas or Andes is becoming the "in" travel trip or tour this year. It involves hiking in the very high altitudes but requires no technical climbing abilities. Its popularity is spreading rapidly from Western Europe, and now many American travel agencies offer special trekking tours. Last year 11,000 trekkers hit the' Himalayas. Trekking is not without its dangers, the most serious of which is altitude sickness. Penjo Ongdi a former Bhutanese officer who runs a shop in Katmandu, JTepal, for equipment rentals and bearers estimates that every year an average of 45 tourists suffer accidents and five die.
