After all wasn't he the fastest draw-poker man of the West as Bret Maverick in the television series that brought him fame? The presence of the film star stir. He wasn't even noticed. The grim-faced players were too intent on watching the fickle numbers. It may be just as well that no one observed Garner's play. Oldtime "Maverick" fans would have been distressed by bis conservative style. Having starred in "36 Hours," he favored 36, which turned up surprisingly often. "Now I'm only behind a thousand," said the actor as he cashed in his chips after the night's winnings. * * * The casino provides welcome diversion for Garner while he is here for beginning scenes of MGM's "Grand Prix," a $6-mil-| lion racing epic in Cinerama. The rangy Oklahoman neither drinks nor partakes of the gourmet delights of France. "I would much rather be back in California," he confessed, "but nowadays you have to go where the action is." He will be seeing plenty of action in "Grand Prix." Director John Frankenheimer has planned me film as the definitive work on European car racing. Of course, Director John Sturges also has the same plans for Warner Brothers' "Day of the Champion," which will also be shooting in Europe this summer, Steve McQueen starring. Champion drivers generally come in more compact sizes, and special seats had to be constructed in Hie movie's racers to accommodate Garner's 6 feet, 3 inches. i ' Debate Grows on Campus Birth Control By HEREDITY MOSS and LOUISE POLIS Moderator Magazine (Written for Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) NEW YORK - (NBA) - It began when it was published that Dr. Roswell D. Johnson of Brown University had given contraceptive pills to two unmarried coeds from Pembroke College, Brown's female counterpart. Dr. Johnson immediately was accused of contributing to "unmitigated promiscuity." He replied that he was "helping to build solid relationships," adding that both women involved were "mature people, .already engaged, and both referred to me by clergy." He said that it is common practice to prescribe the pills well before marriage, so that they may have time to take effect. The issue was clearly stated and debate on the nation's campuses was underway. Today, it flourishes. * * * Many colleges, such as San Jose State in California, flatly claim that it. is not the health center's duty to prescribe such pills. Dr. Thomas Grey, director of San Jose's health service, explains that married students requesting birth control devices are referred to physicians off- campus. At George Washington University, the Student Senate recently passed a resolution urging the "dissemination of birth control information and devices by the University Health Se-vice." President William Graham Cole of Lake Forest College says, "I am acutely aware of the pressing needs of students for help in the area of sex. It is not simply that they need information. More than that, they need help in attitudes, in their sense of values." As a SIECUS * * * board member of (Sex Information and Education Council of the United States), Cole said that his organization "can make a> invaluable contribution — not by preaching or moralizing, but by providing the materials and the atmosphere which will help students to resolve their problems in a mature and healthy way." The U. S. National Student Association last September called for a resolution for health centers to provide information and birth control devices to students requesting either. Major opposition to the bill came from Catholic school dele-1 gallons, though the bill exempt- j ed campuses where "institutional religious teachings are in conflict with the use of birth control measures." The amendment was pissed minim the word 'devices,' a deletion whicn caused considerable outrage. In a recent survey by the University of Pennsylvania, it was found that 55 per cent of the females polled felt birth control pills should not be given out by the health center. They felt it would encourage premarital sex, it was not the function of the university, and that students could easily go to private doctors anyway. Students who replied in favor suggested that distribution would prevent unnecessary marriages, and that it should be the decision of the individual student and doctor rather than a matter of university policy. Said one coed, "I'm not sure about the pills, but I feel student health should give advice and help, since they are supposedly concerned with student welfare. It is for information as well as cures, and it cannot change morals. Competent advice is better than street corner lessons." Dr. Paul Scrode, head of buted by a specialist. "Though the pills may not affect the majority of girls in any detrimental manner," Dr. Scrode says, "it is still necessary that a personal physician be available for consultation, and we simply don't have the facilities or staff to do this." One Penn coed suggested that "the best pill is abstinence." Courses la physical hygiene are offered at Purdue University, and according to Dr. Lyall W. Combs, director of student health, no stand on birth control is advocated in the class. He did say, though, that the university coeds who request premarital counseling and birth control information are e couraged to begin oral contraceptives before marriage. He explained the pills are hormones, and are used by physicians for other purposes. "This dual nature of the drug decrees that an individual judgment in each cast must be followed," Dr. Combs said. At the University of California at Santa Barbara, the health renthood chapter, The Rev. Juilius S. Scott Jr., Acting University Chaplain at Brown, gets at the heart of most campus concern about the pill when he says: * * ¥ "This situation patently docu- . ments the moral ambiguity'of the contemporary university campus, the collapse of tight ethical systems, the insufficient cy of shibboleths, and the necessity for tough - minded conversation about the nature of moral life in our times." Pennsylvania's Student Health j service refers all interested stii- should be supervised and distri- dents to the local Planned Pa- four Choice 3 DIAMOND PRINCESS RING Or 3 DIAMOND DINNER RING S Brilliant diamonds set in the newest 10-KT. : ; Gold mounting.
