The Watergate fascinates and troubles us, but it may be peripheral to the more immediate question of how well we aire able to live. The quickest way to get an answer to that question is to go to a supermarket in the Ooneord Mail Shopping center and see women wandering ifihe aisles with hand calculators, adding up their grocery bill. THE MOST persistent thing on people's minds is that it costs a lot more to live in Delaware than it did five years ago. Food is exhorbi- taintly expensive. Electricity raites have jumped twice in lUhe last three years. The market for housing both sale and reniliail, is so tight in 'this area that real estate values have skyrocketed past any real relation to value. The growth and development have brought other Wilmington, Delaware (population 80,388) was founded as Fort Christina In 1638 by the Dutch and was later renamed by some of Pcttn's Quakers.

In addition to the physical and financial changes, people are being asked to change their relationships with other people.

He is being asked to rethink each of them, to reconsider who he Is, who they arc. People arc pressured by alt this, tout itihey may not be overwhelmed by it. Wilmington is a small city in a small state, so (there is still a feeling of being a part of something tatgiWle. By and large, people aire friendly and helpful to each other rather' than suspicious and resentful. IN ONE SENSE, the social revolution of the last decade has paid a dividend in that people also seem more open to things they might find strange. Wilmington is much bed/tea* integrated and tolerant than it was even a few years ago. Stripped of so many of our illusions, at least we seem much less rigid in attitudes and more willing to live — and let live — as best we can. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) (NEXT: Tacoma, Washington) SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) - A itdephone check indicates many of tne 400 advertisers each week in the Berkeley Barb who seek sexual encounters are lonely people satisfied with the results. The publisher, whose paper sells 25,000, is especially satisfied. Local police are skeptical, but satisfied that the ads help them make some easy prostitution arrests. Some citizens find the ads to be another symptom of the society's moral decline. Others buy the paper solely for the litillation. Personal sex ads appear in several underground newspapers around the country, as well as in "swinger" papers existing mainly for that purpose. Many ads are too explicit for a family newspaper, many express homosexual desires, and some detail sadistic and masochistic interests. Others, couched in gentle terms, simply seek a friend. Mrs. X, 35, a married mother, seeks relationships" in her ads. She receives 75 to 100 responses in care of National Rent-A-Box, and follows up 10 of the most promising. "Only five or 10 of the responses are off-color," she says. "They are almost all good people. "It's a wonderful way to meet people. I can meet more in the ads than in a lifetime of suburban cocktail parties. They certainly beat going to bars." She wants to keep her marriage with her engineer husband but says, "Things at home aren't all that rosy." Mrs. X, who doesn't always go to bed with her new friends, says, "Sex is not the primary motivation. I guess I am trying to generate some excitement." But sex—and money—is the motivation for ads like "Let me entertain you on my waterbed." A telephone call brings the response, "I offer nude entertainment at my place or yours. I charge $35 an hour." Some tip off the motive by "meaningful asking for "generous." 'she A Berkeley young college graduate, says takes money but "I give a mn individual attention." She sees only "one or twa" 'a day and says she enjoys "a good life, good feelings about friendship as well as pasMofli." A gas company repalttnan, 45, says women answering ads he runs regularly do so, "because they are lonely. Most don't know how to meet people." The repairman says the women often complain of sex problems, and "more than one has called while her husband was still asleep." Typically, the male with an ad not too offensive receives 10 or 15 responses, out of which perhaps three interest him' and one leads to a contact. Many of the responses are curious, suspicious or teasing, and end with phone hang-ups in mid- sentence. A male who advertised, "Girls: Free board and room with prof, man plus extras," got no responses. Everybody Loves a Bargain! JERGEN'S LEMON FRESH HAND LOTION 13 Oz.
