I'm not sure how you get to be one of those people, but it probably helps to have something on your governor. - GEORGE WILL: Political columnist who should be telling us who is going to be elected president in November, but instead is always writing about the Chicago Cubs. - HURRICANE: What Republican candidate Pat Robertson prayed from the Atlantic Lewis Grlzzard coast back when he was a pre- acher/televangelist/busin- essman. - SNOWBALL IN HELL: Pat Robertson's chance of winning the presidency. - THE GREAT UNKNOWN: Whatever it is George Bush is trying to say. — BAR: Where most political reporters get their stories by talking to the other political reporters. - LAME DUCK: Politician who is still in office but is not going to be there very much longer, like President Reagan, who's been missing now for several months. - JUST SAY NO: What Gary Hart should have said. - OLLIE NORTH FOR PRESIDENT BUMPERSTICKERS: Terrible waste of money and time. - OF MEESE AND MEN: Good title for President Reagan's memoirs. - REBEL WITHOUT A CLUE: What you get if you cross President Reagan with James Dean. - THE DARK SIDE: Soon-to-be released new movie concerning the life and times of Sen.

Study Disproves Myths About 'Only' Children There is a growing number of one-child families in the United States — and increasing evidence that only children can turn out just as well as, or better than, those with siblings. The time for the one-child family may be here, according to an article in the current issue of Redbook, and research indicates much of the conventional wisdom about onlys is myth. The National Center for Health Statistics reported that the number of women between the ages of 30 and 34 who had only one child rose from 11.8 percent in 1966 to 22.1 percent in 1985. The number of single-child families is likely to increase with more women marrying later and working outside the home, with more reliable birth control methods and the continued rise in the costs of child-rearing. Toni Falbo, professor in the Department of Educational Psychology, University of Texas at Austin and a leader in research on onlys, compiled the results of a number of studies, including her own, and found little evidence to support the old negative stereotypes. "These children are not maladjusted, lonely or selfish," she said. "They perform well on intelligence and achievement tests and do not differ consistently from other children in their levels of self-esteem and general mental health." The most persistent myth about onlys is that they are spoiled. "Only children are not more selfish by nature than any other children," Falbo said. "In fact, children who are born last in a family tend to show more signs of being spoiled than do onlys." Research also indicates that only children do not show signs of being less stable or more neurotic than children with siblings. Adult-age onlys appear as happy as or happier than adults with siblings in terms of career choices, lifestyles, health and hobbies, and only children have not been found to be significantly lonelier than others. Only children have special advantages. Educator and writer Sharryl Hawke found in a study of 105 onlys from 8 to 66 years old that 86 percent felt advantages includes "avoiding sibling rivalry, more parental attention and enjoying greater affluence." The most important resource parents can offer a child is love, and a special closeness often develops between onlys and their parents. This same closeness can turn into a disadvantage if it results in over-protective attitudes, "Being an only child presents problems just as any position in the birth order does," Hawke said, "But the problems of the only child are different, not necessarily worse." Dr. Murray Kappleman, professor of pediatrics and director of the division of behavioral and developmental pediatrics at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, warned that limits must be set and priorities established to keep the desires of the child in balance with the needs of the parents. Other problems of only children involve parents who are too ambitious, strict or analytic with their child. Handicapped Children Learn Martial Arts I'AYLORVILLE, 111 (AP) Motivation, character, self- confidence, physical fitness. Thomas Perry believes these are the elements of tae kwon do. And that's why he wants to teach the Korean martial art to 30 mentally handicapped children who attend Central School in Taylorville. "Martial arts is one of the activities parents wouldn't even consider letting their (mentally handicapped) kids get involved in," said Perry, master instructor at the Taylorville School of Tae Kwon Do and Self Defense. "It's going to be challenge. There's a limit to what they can do, but there's also a limit to what they can't do." Perry began teaching the twice-a-week classes recently and plans to continue for the rest of the year. The arrangement evolved after Perry asked the Decatur-based Easter Seal Society of Central Illinois Inc. to help him promote an upcoming statewide tae kwon do tournament in exchange for proceeds from the gate receipts. The charity accepted Perry's offer and asked if he'd be willing to work with some handicapped children. "Every once in a while when a martial arts school springs up, people thinks it's a bad thing," he said, explaining that he thought working with the charity would upgrade tae kwon do's image. Central School principal Catherine O'Connell said she expected her students to become more interested in their other classes because of tae kwon do. "You have to have good grades and be well-behaved to participate," she said. "It'll teach them self-discipline and they'll be able to coordinate their movements better. It will be a fun time, as well as hard work.'' The school's Parent Teacher Association bought uniforms for each of the 30 students, ages 6 to 21. Jan Krowe, executive director of the Decatur Kaster Seals unit, said, "Tae kwon do really ties in with our motto of helping individuals get the ability to overcome. "Self-discipline, mind discipline — that's why it fits in well with helping the disabled." The Easter Seal Society of Central Illinois provides services to disabled children and adults in Christian, DeWitt, Macon, Moultrie, Piatt and Shelby counties.
