This seems to be the attitude of the modern American male. The number of men undergoing vasectomy—the male sterilization operation—'has shown a "sensational increase" recently, says John R. Rague, executive director of the Association for Voluntary Sterilization in New York City. He estimated 750,000 American males had vasectomies in 1970. That's up from an estimated 200,000 the year before. And Rague predicted in an interview that the 1971 figure will be even greater than 1970's. Simple Procedure So far, an estimated three anger Research Bureau, vhich did open such a clinic. Since then, Rague said, 154 •asectomy clinics have opened n 36 states. Among them are 2 hospitals which do vasec- omies in their outpatient de- xartments. Rague, as well as medical authorities, attributes the re- .ent upsurge in requests for male vasectomies to fears million men in States have had the United sterilization surgery—a simple procedure, done often In the doctor's office in a few minutes. The American male is not alone. In India, where reduction in the birth rate is a major concern, an estimated 8.2 million men have been sterilized. In Great Britain some 20,000 men underwent vasectomies las year and it is estimated the figure will be double for 1971. Rague said his association of fered $30,000 in October 1969 to any New York hospital whicl would open a vasectomy clinic There were no takers. The money went to the Margare Faris PTA Will Meet Tuesday about possible adverse side-ef- ects from the contraceptive pills taken by women. 'Finer Understanding' There is also, he said, "a finer understanding of human sexuality, especially among the young," so that males are wiling to take responsibility for preventing pregnancy. And "the Puritanism which las been a strong influence in ;he development of the United States" has been declining in the past decade, especially among those under age 30 Rague said. An obstacle to male sterilization has been the popular misconception that the oper ation makes the man less masculine, less able to perform sexually. This is untrue. In fact a survey by the Association for Voluntary Ster- lization of 25,000 men who had had vasectomies found that 8! )er cent of the men felt tha heir sexual performances was )etter, 13 per cent felt it was about the same, and 2 per cen felt that it had declined. In the last group, Rague noted, the aging process coul have been a factor. The male sterilization oper ation is much simpler and les expensive to perform than tha for females, which require i Building or Remodeling i Call ED WEIGEL 1 3304 No. Elm l Hutchinson, Ks. 663-9804 (C) 1971 N.Y.

Dr. Robert M. Ross Jr. prac- ces children's medicine in a hite house under the elms on eventh Street. He is past presi- ent of the Mesa County Medial Association, a respected man. Like most people in Grand unction, he has known for some une that radioactive sands — ailed "tailings," which were umped in piles back of the Climax Uranium Company ore- )rocessing mill — have been pread all over town. They were rucked away by builders to use as backfill and base material or pouring concerete slabs, basements and patios.

He said ho was seeing too many birth defects, too much cancer in children. He spoke of his concern to Dr. 1 Henry Kempe, chairman of he pediatrics department at the University of Colorado Medical Center in Denver. Kempe and his asociates went ,o the Colorado Department of Health with the problem and il was thrown onto the agenda of meeting arranged with Gov John A. Love last March. They reviewed other atomic matters in the state and when the indoor radon problem came up, the state health department suggested that the A.E.C. fi nance a chromosomal study o infants in Grand Junction. One of those at the meetin] remembered that the A,E-C respose was negative, that thi representative argued that ther was no evidence to begin with that the radon levels weer to< that the radon levels were toe irths in Grand Junction for the study to have any statistical sig- lificance. Even former A.E.C. Chairman rlenn T. Seabord later wrote Love turning the grant request own. But the state health depart- nent persisted and persuaded he governor to spend $18,000 : rom his special research and studies fund to finance the pro- ect. Work began in July and involves chromosomal studies ol nfants born during 1971. Aboui 700 babies a year are born in Jrand Junction. Comparisons are being made between infants conceived and carried unti t>irth in homes built on tailings an those from homes free from the radioactive sands.
