Gonorrhea and syphilis are the two most common forms of venereal disease (VD) in Iowa and in the nation. They are communicable diseases usually transmitted through sexual contact. There were 417 cases of syphilis reported in Iowa in 1973 and 482 in 1972, but officials at the Iowa State Health Department (ISHD) here point out that the actual number of cases may be two or three times the reported figure. Further data provided by the Venereal Disease Control Division of the ISHD indicate that in the past five years more than 85 per cent of the gonorrhea cases reported affected persons under 30. The figures are: 1973, 88.56 per cent; 1972, 86.27 per cent; 1971. 88.54 per cent; 1970, 87.08 percent; 1969,86.55 per cent.

FOR MMnJ .J To Hear the Farmer's Story First Hand (OPEM QOOK BOOKS TO PAGE 20 AMD TURM OM ' POCKET i v-n By HARRISON WEBER Iowa Daily Press Association (Iowa Daily Press Association) DES MOINES — National consumer advocates who have been harping about high term prices may soon have an opportunity to hear the farmers' story first-hand. When Mrs. Nancy Harvey Steorts, Assistant to the L'.S. Secretary of Agriculture ;or Consumer Affairs, was in Des Moines recently to promote Ag Day, she dropped a suggestion that something should be done to better inform the consumer leaders about tne tarm picture. Governor Robert Ray has picked up the challenge and the Iowa Development Commission is working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in putting together a program for about 25 consumer leaders. Tentative plans call for the consumer advocates to arrive in Des Moines on July 14 where they will be taken to Living History Farms west of Des Moines to see a farm which represents conditions back in the 1880's. After a barbecue with a group of farmers, each consumer advocate will be assigned to a farm couple and will go to the couple's farm. For the next day or so, the consumer advocate will live with the couple and have ample opportunity to ask questions about farming, such as the cost of machinery, fluctuations in the market, and how much profit they are making. The consumer leaders may even be called upon to help with the chores. ' It's hoped that the consumer leaders will have a chance to visit a grain elevator, a farm equipment retail store or a livestock marketing outlet. The agenda calls for the farmers' neighbors to drop in on the couple on the evening of July 15 for a discussion of the farm scene with the consumer advocate. The following day the farmer-hosts and the consumer leaders will meet at Iowa State University at Ames to learn about current agriculture research. Sponsors of the program are hopeful that this one-on-one approach will result in some meaningful dialogue on a national level between Iowa farmers and consumer advocates. were: 25-29-year-olds, 14.8per cent: 20-24 group, 40.8 per cent; 15-19 group, 30.7 per cent. The under-15 group averaged 1.2 per cent. Thirty-four counties did not report any syphilis cases in 1973; six did not have any gonorrhea cases. The six are Clarke, Fremont, Harrison, Howard, Lyon and Osceola, of which Clarke, Lyon and Osceola did not report syphilis, either. In contrast. Polk County reported 1,227 gonorrhea cases — the largest number in the state. Scott County was second with 612 cases. The VD problem is compounded by the lack of noticeable symptions, especially in women. Health officials indicated that as many as 8 our of 10 women may not present gonorrhea symptoms, but this does not indicate that they aren't going to pass on the infection or suffer its effects — which include sterility, crippling, blindness and death. In general. VDwill manifest itself several days or even weeks after the disease is contracted. Health officials here stressed the importance of seeking medical attention once a person suspects he or she may have VD. They indicated that a routine medical examination will not usually reveal the presence of syphilis or gonorrhea. Public health representatives can provide VD information or help to locate a physician in a given area. Also, they can arrange for payment of medical fees and treatment. They may be called collect.

A City Within the City of Light By Rosette Hargrove PARIS (NEA) - This capital now boasts a super-modern "City-Within-a-City" — the International Convention Center, C.I.P. It stands on five acres once occupied by the old amusement complex Luna Park, which Parisians knew from the beginning of the century up until the outbreak of World War II. The center is only a few minutes walk from the Arc de Triumph, the Champs Elysees and the Bois de Boulogne, with its renowned outdoor restaurants and boating lake. Experts in the convention business predicted that by 1985, international gatherings would be drawing something like 10 million people, about four times the figure for the early '70s. So Paris looked ahead and decided to build the C.I.P. The city donated this outstanding site and the Paris Chamber of Commerce sponsored the project. Cost of this "Palace of the Thousand and One WARNING TEST MANNING — Manning will conduct a weather warning test with a siren blast at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 24. It will be an uninterrupted three minute blast of the fire siren. In the future, if this three minute uninterrupted blast is heard, it is a warning to alert everyone that serious weather conditions prevail in the form of a tornado, high winds or some other danger. During the night police keep a watch on the weather and if necessary will set off the siren. Communications" is given as around $100 million. Far in advance of its time in design this complex, unique in Europe, can accommodate 5,000 people and afford every communication facility that modern technology can offer. The grand auditorium is the heart of the center. Equipped with a stage measuring over 1,800 square feet, it also has an orchestral pit which can accommodate 120 musicians and be raised to floor level for concerts. The giant hall can seat up to 4,300 people but can also be adjusted to a 1,500-seat capacity. Each seat has six language simultaneous translating capacity. Surrounding the main conference hall on the first level is a series of exhibition halls. Here scientists, artists and others may display their works. About 100 offices and business suites with adjoining reception room are available to conference organizers and businessmen needing a Paris base temporarily. Some offices can be transformed into small conference rooms for 20 or 30 people. The city-within-a-city is no exaggeration. With 80 boutiques in the complex, there is no need to rush around getting tired out. Every gift problem or personal need can be satisfied without loss of time. The shopping arcade includes a Travel Bureau, branches of the leading air lines, a post office, bank hairdressers and the like. And for relaxation, the center has a gymnasium, swimming pool and saunas, as well as a discotheque, a "brasserie" which stays open until the wee hours and four cinemas showing the latest films from many countries. Multilingual hostesses are on hand, as well as act as shopping counsels. Nothing, it seems, has been forgotten. A competent medical service is on hand 24 hours a day. An equally modern hotel, the Concord-LaFayette, dominates the C.I.P. with its 400-foot tower. A four-star establishment of 1,000 rooms, with superb views over Paris, the Bois de Boulogne, and the Defense skyscraper area to the West. Then there are the banquet rooms on the top floor providing a panoramic view of Paris. On the terrace next to these delegates have the choice of three restaurants. Finally, the new palace will be the center of intense artistic activity. As of this month, the Paris Symphony Orchestra will give its concerts there and there are also bookings for ballets, recitals and theatrical productions.
