Water skiing is outstandingly a sport Where the vitality, daring and endurance of youth sweep top honors. Who do you suppose is the champion barefoot — (he straps on nothing (skier of the world?—It's 17-year- old Steve Northrup of Pensacola, Fla., who splashed behind a speeding boat on his hard-soiled tootsies for 35 miles, elapsed time one hour seven minutes and 15 seconds. Hoorah, the result was young USA took the crown by seven minutes from Australia. Other skim-over-me- water teen champs today are 15-year-old Liz Allan of Winter Park, Fla., who copped the Masters Cup at the Masters Water ski Tournament in Georgia last summer, (including leaping for a world's record water ski jump of 166 ft.); little Ric'ky Joe McCormick, 15, of Independence, Mo., who toppled the longtime trick-riding champion; LeRoy Burnett of Bethel Island, Cali., 17, who swiped the slalom title, and the youngest skier ever invited to the competition, Lisa St. John,, an 11-year-old supertyke from Fall River, Calif., who ran up most points in trick among women . . . Not only are the champs pretty young, but the sport is too. It all started in 1922 when Ralph Samuelson clamped on a clumsy pair of square-ended wood skis, twice his height, and demonstrated fnan could ski the surface of the sea. ' ARE YOU ONE IN SEVEN WHO DOES? Brush teeth, we mean, with frequency. Latest news in the tooth-brushing department Jrom the U.S. Public Health Service reports that despite drastic warnings by dentists, only 16 per cent of the American public brushes teeth more than twice a day. No doubt more young adults brush more than oldies, and, since it's advised, you'd best brush teeth after every meal. .. WILL SHE OR WON'T SHE? Benefit by getting her college degree?—For girls with their hearts set on gonig to (and throujjhj college, but maybe even more set on some guy . . . Which should the bewildered bird settle for? YOUTH BEAT (which makes no pretense of having the all-knowing answer to everything) admits each gal must make her individual decision. But recent findings are that today's married col-\ lege women are prizing their degrees more than ever . . . A big reason is that early marriage and family planning often mean gals bus their last child off to school by the time they're in their mid-30s. Ho- hum, what to do then?—Of course, a job maybe in community, maybe for that nice filthy stuff—money. This is when the old, crackling college degree helps... to get a better position, easier. Foreshadowing this, trend, ijlght now seven out .of 10 college-educated women, 45 to 55, hold jobs. Perhaps the bewildered bird should settle for both a college degree and a husband. ; THAT OLD GENERATION GAP: Real serious quote for this week is from Sen. Robert F.

It is a small war relative to a iig economy, but it is having its effect. Vietnam will cost something more than ?22 billion this coning fiscal year, less than 3 per cent of the gross national product of about $765 billion. But this financially "easy" war contributed to inflation last year and it might force a general tax Rernemnei Pay Your Paper Boy AIRLOCK MODULE AND DOCKING ADAPTER APOLLO SPACECRAFT MAN IN SPACE-The Orbital Workshop LIVING QUARTERS LABORATORY AND MAINTENANCE AREA SOLAR CELLS What was one* useless debris of space missions is soon to be put to good use by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The agency's upcoming Apollo Applicotions program "»»«>' converting spent fuel stages of launching rockets into stabilized space stations where astronauts may live and work for a month or more in space. One such station, an orbital workshop housed in a 10000 cubic foot Saturn hydrogen tonk may be circling me earth within the next few years. Plans call for astronauts to con. struct a two-story workshop in the empty tank, 58 feet long by 211/2 feet in diameter. Living quarters and laboratory and maintenance areas will be on the main floor. Special experiments .wl I be conducted in the remainder of the station. The crew will work, in shirtsleeves in the pressurized, zero gravity environment. Most important new equipment being developed for the workshop are on airlock and multiple docking adapter permitting up to five Apollo spacecraft and other payloads to link up with the station Viet War Dents Economy hike this year. That is impact, i budget provides for $73 billion to The budget deficit, it now ap- [ be spent, a figure that likely pears, will top any previous de- j will swell. little effort ficit, totaling perhaps $30 billion, a good deal of it the result of the Vietnam war. And, since the budget deficit will be potentially inflationary, pressure has increased for a cut in federal domestic spending. Parts of the Great Society, including the slogan, could become victims. There Is no question, therefore, that Vietnam is having its impact; no nation can afford such spending without consequences. Vietnam is, however, only a fraction of our total commitment to military or defense spending. President Johnson's Since projections for the gross national product, the total of a nation's goods and services, range from $740 billion to $790 billion for the year, defense spending still is likely to be no more at any time than about 10 per cent of GNP. In the Korean War, when defense expenditures were lower, they representd a far higher sure again after reaching 40- product, which thn was about $265 billion. Again, although Vietnam is big in relation to Korea, it is smaller than Korea n relaton to GNP. It is this enormous size of the American production machine, many times larger than most other nations,! hat hides much of Vietnam's impact. But that impact is there. There is no de. bate about it. What Is still debatable is the extent of the pressure on the economy. Some critics of the administration maintain the pressure could have been lessened if the costs had been foreseen and arrangements made arlier for pavine the bills. It is possible that under perfect administering, and with a lot of luck, the impact could have been nearly hidden. This would have assumed more accurate projections of expenditures and better timing on fiscal measures meant to hold down As it is, we have found that prices are higher than housewives are willing to pay and probably will go higher; interest rates are under upward pres- sure after reaching 40- year highs last year; high mortgage rates are delaying a forecasted housing boom. Perhaps as a consequence of tight money and rising rates, stock prices plunged last year and some blue chips remain depressed. The stock decline, in a limited sense, can therefore be blamed partly on Vietnam. Some economists say, in defense of administration efforts, that the fact the economy still continues to support Americans in a manner that neither they nor any other people have ever before enjoyed is compliment enough to the administration's wisdom. Even in nonwar years, they say, we have.had high taxes and interest, inflation and housing problems. A big concern of the econo- ihists, however, is that should i there be a further buildup in _J Vietnam—or another flareup in Korea or the Mideast—the rise in defense spending will corner more and more Of the nation's productivity. A war economy is a distant threat, but its consequences—as we have seen—sometimes are felt in advance. Only one of the seven wonders of the ancient world is still in existence—the pyramid of Che- ops.
