Then, nearly 4,000,000 infants were born--largest baby crop : ln U. S, history. The next decade is almost certain to see further decline in the rate, if only because fewer persons are now at the ·ge of parenthood as a result of the drop in births during the IddO's.

Joyce Sanders," a ward of the Louisville and Jefferson County Children's Home who boarcjs in the Thacker home with her two sisters, told county police between sobs that she created the illusion of a spook by throwing objects into the air when nobody was looking. "It made a lot of people come to see me," she commented. Joyce's mother is critically ill with cancer. She doesn't know where her father is. To puss away the time, she put the spook to DUE TO COLDS TAKE for fast symptomatic RELIEF [ work last Sunday. Household i articles would float mysteriously through* the air, and boxes sailed around the room for no apparent reason. News of the "phenomena'' spread, and soon crowds of curious neighbors filled the Thacker home. Joyce was never happier. She and her sisters saw themselves on television. As the crowds grew, the girl made the ghost more active, moving him to other parts- of the house. County Patrolmen Russell Mc. Daniel and .lack Fisher, somewhat I skeptical of the reports, investi- | gated. They saw the falling cans and knive.--. They also noticed that all such goings-on took place only when Joyce was around. A f t e r a p r i v a t e conference with the pert f i f t h grade student, they announced the ghost was no more. Joyce had admitted throwing the objects when no one was looking. But, .she noted. "1 didn't throw all these things. People just imagined some cf them."
