This is to be followed by a sefcorid book, after 12,000 interviews with females. We judge the professor has found a hobby that is ,far from boring, and also Hf keeping him well posted on what is going, or isn't. ' * One tbJng he ^discovered is interesting, He says that 30 years ago "petting involved fewer persons arid Was a less highly elaborated activity than it often is today. But behavior of the older genera, tion, was so*nearly identical with the behavior of the present-day youth, that no significant differences are shpwn"," fl * Imagine inlerviewing i 12^000 people and find, ing out that things along this line are just 'about \thc same as they were 30 years ago.

Bob Gehller arid Tom Kelly. Francis Mullen heads a committee to select the theme song for the ois ganizatiqn. John Uhlenhake wanted this job but I know he can't sing for sour apples hence he'll remain vice president and justice of the peace.
