Vadim is particularly proud of his fatherhood.

"Catherine Schneider," he explains, "is thie first .woman, who is not an actress I have fallen in love with. I guess it's a sign of maturity." Vadim has not yet married her. -In-his-scheme~o^f--love-,- -·"---- marriage is not essential. HIM? One of the most disturbing factors about agricultural land in the U.S. is that the top 20 landowners in rural counties generally own 25 to . 50 percent of the land. These owners constitute a fraction of pne^er cent of the population. Land in America is falling into fewer and fewer hands while the number of absentee landowners increases. For example, 60 per cent of all the agricultural land in Iowa and Illinois is owned by absentee landowners, which is one reason why family farmers are leaving the land. Herewith are some of America's major landowners and the acreage they control on a national basis. The state of Sew Jersey consists of 4i8 million acres, which should give you. a relative idea of how land-wealthy the following corporations are: - U-S-AOEAQE ,..,,·::... mmuxm SOME Standard Oil of Indiana Texaco *Mobil Gulf Phillips Petroleum Standard Oil of California Continental Oil Union Oil COMPANIES 20.3 9.9 7.8 7.5 5.3 5.2 4.5 4.1 HO1IMKC8 CACHES) International Paper 7.0 Weyerhauser-- : - : -5.6 .Georgia-Pacific 4.5 St. Regis 3.9 ITT (Rayqnier) 2.1 U.S. Plywood-Champion- 2.0 Scott ·- x 1.8 Boise-Cascade - 1.8 Union Camp 1.6 Crown Zellerbach 1.6 Samberly-Clarfc 1.5 Continental Can 1.4 HAOBOADS SUHFACCAHD MINERAL BIGHTS ·· · (ACBES) Burlington 5orthern 8.4 Union Pacific 7.9 Southern Pacific ' 5 . 1 St. Louis--San Francisco "- 1.4 TOTAL: 122.2 Million Acres Come to .sunny socialist Cuba --not if you're a citizen of the U.S. of course--but if your country doesn't ban*" such trips, tourists are · welcome in Havana. Senora Ilia Bourzac of the Cuban Ministry of Tourism has been covering Britain, making her tourist pitch. "We want to show people," she announced, ?what has been achieved since the revo^ lution. We not only offer sun, swimming, and all tourist conveniences, but Cuba would like to show other people how we run our systeml . "We will take you to inspect our farms, our schools, our plantations, as well as many tourist attractionsi" ." , According to Senora Bourzac, Cuban tourism should be fairly well organized by next summer. " Medical officials in charge of the 1976 Summer Olympics at Montreal say that drugs and sex will once again be their main concern. Dr. Georges Letourneau reports that most of the drugs, including any -drug capable of stimulating an, athlete's performance, "" will be forbidden. As regards the sex of competitors, care will be taken to see that no ..male as determined by chromosomes competes as a female. of the difficult tasks known to. man is that of choosing stocks .that will grow in value. -Suppose on March 1, 1928, you had invested $10,000 in each of the s ix stocks listed below--what do you think your investments would have "been worth nearly 47 years later in 1974?
