MAIN MA 2*8844 Our J!s» Year - . : SAME--YEAR IN, YEAR OUT Senator Backs Proposed s Fixed Perpetual Calendar WASHINGTON--UPI--It'll always be the same, year in and year out. A perpetual calendar, that is, and specifically "the perpetual calendar" proposed by a H o n o l u l u resident and strongly supported in the halls of Congress by a U.S. senator from Hawaii. Originator of a calendar to put an end to the quirks of the present Gregorian calendar is Willard E. Edwards of Honolulu an electrical engineer for the Navy at Pearl Harbor. One of Edwards' strongest supporters is Sen. Hiram L. Fong, R-Hawaii, who has introduced legislation to make Edwards' creation the official U.S. calendar, effective in 1967. Edwards first thought of the idea more than 40 years ago when he was a high school sophomore in Quincy, Mass. He has actively promoted the idea for more thrm 20 years. The reasoning behind the calendar, as Edwards explains it, is to end inequality which "exists in the present calen- ·*.. ~ - *«· GRUNEWALD ADAMS PAYS CASH FOR OLD JEWiLRY Over many years Grunewald Adams has been purchasing jewelry from individuals and estates.

Features of Edwards' calendar include: --A year composed of 52 weeks in which each week begins on a Monday. --A 12-month year composed of equal quarters of 91 days each, with eight 30-day months and four 31-day months. --A New Year's Day set apart each year to fall between Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. Another extra day every four years would fall between June 31 and July 1 to take care of the leap year. It is these two days set apart which allow- the calendar to become fixed and "perpetual." --No Friday the 13ths. (In some nations such a date is considered unlucky.) --Holidays which would fall on the same day each year, including Easter Sunday on April 14 of each year--a date which Edwards maintains was strongly favored at the council of early Christian prelates at Nicaea in 325 A.D. Fong's bill resolves that the United States propose to the United Nations, the Organization of American States and other international agencies that the perpetual calendar Advertisement ASTHMA MUCUS WHILE I LWhFhniiWr YOU SLEEP Thousands ol men, women and children are now finding a simple, easy way to combat difficult breathing, coughing, rattling and wheezlness due to recurring attacks of Bronchial Asthma and Bronchitis.

The bill was referred to the Senate Commerce Committee which referred it to two federal agencies for comment. Its chances for passage are scant at best. The Interstate Commerce Commission reported it did not feel it was "in a position to offer helpful suggestions as to its merits." But, the commission added, "We wish to point out that considerable confusion and inconvenience would result should the other nations of the world fail to join the United States in adopting the proposed calendar." Joseph Campbeil, comptroller general of the United States, told the committee that if the bill was to be considered, two amendments should be attached. He said that "presumably, for tax and other purposes, New Year's Day will be considered as falling within the new calendar year. It may be that the bill should be amended to specifically so state." Also, he wrote to the committee concerning Leap Year's Day every four years that "in many cases it will not be clear whether Leap Year Day will fall within the old or new fiscal year and we feel that the bill should be amended so as to state specifically the fiscal year in which this day shall fall." The fiscal year ends on June 30 each year on the Leap Year's Day would be set between June 30 and July 1 every four years. Campbell concluded, however, that "aside from the foregoing we have no comments to make" on the bill. FUR HI TU RE CO.

STUDY REVEALS: Unemployment, Suicide Rates Closely Related By Science Service WASHINGTON -- Unemployment and suicide rates are closely related. When unemployment rises, there are more suicides; when unemployment goes down, the suicide rate decreases. This relationship held during the 30-year period from 1929 to 1959, particularly for the years after World War II. It applies_to white males in the 45 to 54-year-old bracket. A British study for the years 1923-47 shows the same results. It has been known that suicide rates vary with social conditions, but these new figures indicate unemployment is'the specific economic qondi- tion most directly related to suicide rates. Unemployment is a main cause of suicide,, Drs. Brian MacMahon and Thomas F. Pugh of Harvard University school of public health, Boston, and Dr. Samuel Johnson of the University of Colorado school of medicine, Denver, have found. Suicide rates reached a You Are Invited . . .

The younger men, returning from the battlefields, were successfully competing for the jobs the older men held, the scientists said. As men get older, suicide rates increase. For women, however, the rate reaches a peak when they. are in the early 50s, then declines. This difference exists in only a few other countries and may reflect pressures peculiar to th« U.S. social system. Although suicide rates for Negroes are generally lower than those for whites, in this country, the rate for Negro males up to age 35 living in the North is just as high as the rate for whites, the doctors reported here in Public Health Reports.
