What's your excuse? eeping Up... With QCouth P»*l Waning Last year an estimated 65,000 persons required hospital emergency room treatment for injuries associated with swimming pools, swimming pool slides and diving boards. And most of the victims were young people. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission's National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, which monitors 119 hospital emergency rooms nationwide, 27 percent of all swimming pool injuries and 33 percent of all diving board injuries treated last year involved children between 10 and 14 years of age. Of the reported injuries associated with swimming pool slides, 37 percent involved children between 5 and 9 years of age. The major accident patterns associated with swimming pools, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, include falling on slippery walkways, decks, diving boards or ladders; striking the bottom or sides of the pool because of insufficient depth for diving or sliding, and drowning when swimming alone and without adult supervision. by (Pamela Swift Burger Change* On May 28, in a commencement address at the University of Pennsylvania, Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, an infrequent supporter of the younger generation, admitted the youth of the 1960's had made a significant contribution to American life. "In the disorders that began In the 1960's, I suspect that my reactions were much like most others of my generation. I resented that young people who were given what seemed unparalleled opportunities for education, without the barriers of birtluH class that exist in other societies, saw fit to tear down, to occupy, to burn rather than learn," explained Burger. "Occasionally I went into rowdy crowds not to talk but to listen. CHIff JUSTICE BURCHt On the streets in Washington, in Georgetown . . . I observed objectionable conduct, but I also saw peaceful protests. Including the quiet demonstrations of young men and women with saffron robes and shaved heads, singing and praying in public. I watched others with long hair, simple clothes, knapsacks and bedrolls--most of them orderly and clean, and only a few otherwise. "... Perhaps without knowing all the reasons, they were ahead of many others in seeing that something was missing In modern life. Some people perceived the conduct of youth as a step toward the disintegration of our society--the beginning of an 18th-century revolution-and no doubt a nihilist spirit pervaded the minds of some leaders of the violent protests. The perception of a true revolution in the making rested on the burning and bombing of college buildings and other public buildings, but I overlooked the positive side -- the protest against materialism, against the misuse of natural resources, against pollution of the quality of life, and against a war that could not be satisfactorily explained. It was like the age-old yearning of Thorean for Waiden Pond, and even if unrealistic and unattainable, perhaps it has helped all of us to a renewed awareness of values of the spirit." 12 COl-QmGMs France is planning to draft young women into the national service for six months' work on community projects. The project is not definite. It is one of 102 ideas recently put forward by Francotse Giroud, France's minister for the feminine condition. The other 101 ideas would give women the same rights as men. This one, however, stands a good chance of being adopted. u mg. lar,u.amg.nicoEineay.pti Stones Cancel The Rolling Stones have canceled their proposed U.S. mini- tour this summer. Reason: Mick Jagger and his troupe are exhausted from their European tour. The British rock stars planned originally to give outdoor concerts in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta and Philadelphia and pick up a million. Come fall, however, they plan to make their Latin America debut and then tour the States.
