But knowing the reasons for what you are doing nv:y help Single bliss WASHINGTON (UPli Staying single predominates among young, college-educated ·A'orr.en, according lo a Census Bureau study. It said 26 per cent of 25 to 3-1 year old women with more than five years of college training did not marry. The figure was 19 per cenl for women 35 to 44 years old. By comparison, only eight per cent of 25 to 34 year olds with only high school education remained single, and only tour per cent of the 35 lo 44 year olds covered in Ihe survey. develop your patience and determination Why bother to drain the excess water into the sink when it seeps through the bottom of the flower pot 0 Because Ihis rids Ihe soil of toxic salts and minerals lhat build up from tap waiei. iimiirai soil changes and the necessary fertilizers Iliat are added. Leaving the water in the saucer to evaporate doesn't do the job. The water containing the salts collects in the dish and rises back up into 'he pot as the soils dries. Why give plants a weekly shower, especially since hanging plants are so difficult to move? Mot only does this raise Ihe humidity level, but il has in- direcl benefils. Bugs and diseases are encouraged by dusty, dirty leaves. House plants are not in their natural environment; gentle breezes don't keep the surrounding air moving and rain never washes Ihe leaves The once-a-week bath is really a necessity, nol a luxury, although it calls for gentle handling of plants with long runners and leaves. You should change a plant's - soil approximately every two years 'whether or nol il needs repelling lo a bigger container. The earth gets "lired" and many of the nutrients washed away in watering are never , replaced, even with fertilizing. [NEXT: Hazards ) I "Indoor Gardening Guide" ! c. o This Newspaper 1 P.O.

"All women on oral contraceptives sliould probably be informed of the risk and instructed lo notify their physician of any pain in Ihe righl upper abdomen" or any noticeable swelling in that area, the report said. The report was prepared by Dr. Hugh Edmondson, a nationally respected authority on liver diseases, Dr. Brian Henderson and a nurse, Barbara Benton. It was published loday in the New England Journal of Medicine. A similar finding by researchers from the University of Kentucky appeared last week in the Journal of Ihe American Medical Association. Edmondson began Ihc research six years ago when he began receiving an unusually large number of liver specimens, from around Ihe country, for examination for adenomas, or non-cancerous lumors. Liver adenomas were rare before lhat. wilh the Mayo Clinic reporting only six in the previous 50 years, but Edmondson had received specimens from « women. Interviews established that City offers to train lady cops PHILADELPHIA (UP!) Although Ihe city says they don'l have the muscles and Police Commissioner Joseph O'Neill says God made Ihem different, about 100 women may soon become beat cops. The city, battling two sex discrimination suits il hopes to settle out of court, has offered to hire a lest class of 100 women lo train for foot patrol duty. U.S. District Court' Judge Charles !(. Wciner, who has presided; over Ihe consolidated trial of the two suits, which has been in recess for over o week, ordered representatives of the (wo sides to report on Ihc proposed' setllemcnl immediately.. The c j t y submitted the proposal ;lo the government as a possible settlement of Ihe suits filed by the U.S. Justice Department and Policewoman Penelope Brace. David Rose, head of the U.S. Employment Section of the department's Civil Rights Division, promised he would have an answer on Ihe acceptability of the city's proposal "in 2-1 hours." Under the city's proposal. Hie performance of the 100 women assigned to street duty would be evalualed over a 24-month period The results of (he study would then be submitted to Wciner. The proposed settlement also calls for allowing each of (he next five police classes of 100 recruils to include 20 women. The city's defense has been predicated on the contention that women do not have Ihe strength lo handle beal patrols. O'Neill has said in a sworn statement that women cannot hold police jobs traditionally held by men "because Cod. in his wisdom, made Ihem different." The eiiy also said if Inc settlement is agreed upon, they hope lo hire Ihe policewomen Ihis vear. many of the women whoso livers ' developed adenomas had been laking birlh control pills for longer than five years, the report said, particularly pills containing the meslranol type of synthetic estrogen. Henderson said similar lu- mors have been found in men who were given testosterone - a male hormone drug suggesting that Ihe problem may be present with all steroid drugs, the classification lo "·hirti hnth n v t r o ^ o n ·»'' testosterone belong. Tumors in .some of Ihe women studied diminished after they slopped taking birlh control pills, he said Henderson said federal regulatory agencies should pay more attention to the fact that more and more pills are taken continuously for years.
