Average Man Consumes 160 Pounds, Meat By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: Americans now eat more than their own weight in red meats each year. . .The average of 1963 is expected to pass 166 pounds. Prosperity note: The United States has about two-thirds of the world's motor vehicles. Odd legislation: Iceland passed^ a law requiring all children to learn to swim. An awful lotta water: The Pacific Ocean is so huge that all the continents would easily fit into its 63.8 million square miles. Incidentally, we use about 5 million pounds of water per person annually. Worth remembering: Comedienne Marion Powers says that today inflation is simply a drop in the buck. Divided city: Despite the wall that keeps 53,000 East Berlin workers from their jobs in the Allied-occupied part of the city, West Berlin is still Germany's highest industrial center. . .It produces one of every two light bulbs used in that nation, every second cigarette, and every third dress bought in Germany. Nature notes: Rattlesnakes are found in every mainland state except Maine and possibly Delaware. . .Alligators don't count their calories—but during six or seven months of the year, they usually don't eat. . .One survey showed that 43 per cent of chickens lay their eggs between 9 and 11 a.m. Woman's work is getting easier all the time. . .Someone has figured out that only 30 per cent of the soup consumed in the United States is home-made. The best wisecrack of the week: Actor Yul Brynner says he doesn't know whether rock 'n* roll music is dying — but it always sounds as if it is. How long can your pet cat live? . . .The commonly accepted limit is 21 years, but there is one case on record of a cat that was finally put to sleep in her 35th year. It was Somerset Maugham who observed, "American women expect to find in their husbands a perfection 1 that English women only hope to find in.their butlers." DR. I.

Demand for Negro Models Increasing By JACK LEFLER NEW YORK (AP)-Racial integration of advertisements, is moving ahead slowly but steadily. More and more Negro models are appearing alongside white models. Recently Macy's, the big New York department store chain pictured five hand-holding youngsters in an ad for children's apparel. One was a Negro and another an Oriental. While there is strong pressure from the Negro community for greater employment of Negro models, a real impetus comes from a desire by advertisers to reach the Negro market. This market comprises almost 11 per cent of the U.S. population, or 20 million persons, with $19 billion in annual purchasing power. . Some companies have paid special attention to the Negro market for many years. Sometimes this was a part of a program aimed at many ethnic groups and neighborhoods. Until recently efforts to reach the Negro market were mainly confined to the Negro press. Now general media - are being used. The trend toward use of Negro models is quite new and the advertising industry is having its problems. "Many advertisers and agencies don't know how to do it," an industry spokesman said. "A problem is attracting too much attention to the models. After all, you're selling peanut butter, not integration." "There is a definite increase in the use of Negro models in general advertising," said Richard Scheideker, senior vice president of the American Association of Advertising Agencies. "But you have to use them where appro- propriate and where they will sell products." New York Mayor Robert Wagner's committee on job advancement has made a strong push for greater employment of Negroes in newspaper, magazine, television and radio advertising. N.
