Doyou realty know what happens ivhen ·HUDllfiSS or down If we citizens don't understand the basic workings of our American Economic System, how can we make intelligent decisions about it? Every American ought to know what this booklet says. It's easy to read, interesting---and free. For a copy, write: "Economics',' Puebb, Colorado 81009. by LLOYD SHEARER As of April, 1976, these were the states with the highest and lowest unemployment rates in the country: HIGHEST (1) Michigan 10.2% (2) Alaska 10.1% Florida 10.1$ (3) California 9.9J6 New Jersey 9.9% Oregon 9.9%' Vermont 9.9% (4) Connecticut .....' 9.656 (5) New York ........ 9.5J6 (6) Washington 9.456 LOWEST (1) Kansas 3.756 (2) South Dakota 3.956 (3) Wyoming 4.256 (4) Nebraska 4.5$ (5) Iowa 5.0J6 (6) Mississippi 5.2J6 Missouri 5.256 New Hampshire .... 5.256 (7) Virginia 5.3* (8) South Carolina ...5.5J6 If a mother's first- horn is a hoy, she is less likely to want a large family than if her first child is a girl." If her first two children are hoys, her desire for a third child is far less than if the first two are girls. That at least holds true in England, where the government recently published a survey based on interviews with 1400 mothers who were questioned in 1967 before they had any children. Five years later they were questioned again. Those who had started motherhood with a son had drastically reduce'd their desire for a large family. The report, "Families Five Years On," declares that- to many mothers the birth of a son may represent some personal achievement or goal such as helping to carry on the family name. BECAUSE OF VOLUME OF MAIL DECEIVED. PARADE REGRETS IT CANNOT ANSWER QUERIES ABOUT THIS COLUMN WffE JOAN PLOWUGIIT AM 1MB OUVH1 Laurence' Olivier, 69, U possibly | the world's greatest English-language actor, has finally succumbed to the blandishments of television. Lord Olivier has signed with Granada TV, a British company, and NBC to produce and act in a series of six television drama "specials." -The first is "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" by Tennessee Williams, in which Olivier will play the role of Big Daddy opposite Natalie Wood and her husband, Robert Wagner. Two years ago Olivier came down with a rare disease which he describes as "an inflammation of the muscles in which you lose the use of every muscle in your body." Gradually he recovered sufficiently to act in two American films. It is highly doubtful, however, that Olivier will return to the stage in the near future. "To act on the stage," he explains, "requires an energy which is beyond my compass...! cannot grapple with it. You see, the stage takes a certain kind -of energy, and I don't have it." Olivier*s roles in the TV drama series will not be particularly major. "I am not going in for those zonking great parts," he points out, "which at my age I find it most difficult to learn. I'll be looking for dazzling little cameo parts." Why did Lord Olivier shun the TV medium in past years? "I stood stiffly, coldly and pompously away from the medium," he admits, "too long." Explains an actor who has worked with Olivier on stage: "TV is not the most ego-satisfying medium for an actor of Larry's stature. I believe he's doing TV because it's relatively easy for him, and the money's superb."
