Library News "It's a different world" - this expression, often heard these days, is the theme of an important new book FUTURE SHOCK by Alvin Toffler. He presents a very thorough, startling and somewhat alarming account of what happens to people overwhelmed by change, how they adapt, or .nay fail to adapt to the future. Many will find it increasingly painful to keep up with the incessant demand for changethat characterizes our time. Kenneth Boulding says "Almost as much has happened since I was born as happened before". This is probably true for people sixty years or older. The author divides the past 50,000 years into 800 lifetimes of about 62 <years each. Of these about 650 were spent in caves, the rest in grop- ings toward civilization as we know it, the industrial revolution and now the super-industrial state. The greater part of the book is used to document this process of transience and accelerated change. In our throw-away society, it ismoreeconomictothrow away the dishes than wash them (in airplanes and trains so far) to rent housing, furniture, linens, cars than own them, to makenew acquaintances than remember the old ones, and so on. In 1968 some 9500 new items were introduced in the consumer packaged-goods field, few of these met their sales target, the rest were silently killed oK and forgotten. New products sweep in like the tide. Job mobility is another characteristic of the times, people being transferred regularly from one area to another. No time to get involved in local affairs because one won't be there long enough to see what happens. (IBM means to some: I've been moved). When the author comes to the family - once the haven for the bruised and battered individual seeking support and comfort, he has "a field day". Some innovations discussed as the family unit breaks up are childless marriages, serial marriage (a series of successive temporary marriages, the new birth technology, communes, geriatric group marriages, post-retirement child- rearing, professional parenthood and other changes. The term "future shock" is used to describe the distress, both physical and psychological, that arises from an overload or over stimulation of a-human being's adaptive system; Much more study is needed on the subject of adaptation to stress. Many ' persons resist change, retreat to another century in their outlook, some become ill, some choose suicide and some adapt happily and freely. How to cope with tomorrow closes the book. It may be borrowed 'from the Forest Park Public Library. Vivacious Leslie l ! g(!uma, international singing star and Hroad- ^wuy-TV favorite, joins thc'grow- parade of celebrities against cancer. She urges everyone to support the 1970 Crusade of the American Cancer Society by lighting cancer with a checkup and a check. lalK of 1 lie lown by Jackie Schutz 366-4685 Surely the most wonderful gift received by anyone this Christmas was the one that came to the HEREAU household. They got their son and brother for seven days! JOE flew in from Thailand to Hickham Field, Hawaii, to the mainland. Part ol his journey included a 490 mile hitchhiking jaunt with 40 different drivers! Then he phoned home for money. He arrived ragged, tired and happy, bounded up the front stairs two and three at a time. Before leaving Bankok, Joe had spend three days looking lor MIKE MOHR, but they missed connections. His mom, MARY HEREAU tied a five-inch ribbon around her prize package and sent him to ROSE ANN DE MARIO'S. Ah! Such sweet surprises happen only to the very young. TOM and MARY had a big party for Joe's friends. Before he left, Joe took a long look at his block, all done up Christmas lights and wreaths and said its the most beautiful spot on earth. You have to agree. In 2-1/2 years Airman 1st Class HEREAU will be back with us.
