A Problem No One Studies :J/ie American Male DeHmma , ; ny SANDRA GITTENS NEW YORK (AP) -- Drs. Anne Steinrnann and David J Fox are in total agreement -the male in today's society is in a dilemma. . I n a major social study D^s. .Fox and Steinmann have written from their accumulation of research over the past 20 years "The Male Dilemma -- How To Survive The Sexual Revolution." ;.Dr. Fox says the last seven or eight years he and Dr. Steinmann concentrated on male concepts and male roles "That, plus the feelings which ery one in the last five years. naturally emerged as we got more and more data that ever maybe the last decade, in society was overly concerned ·with the adjustment problems of women but nobody was paying, any attention to what .seemed to us the obvious im-part- of these same situations on: men. That's what oriented the book towards men. We -could have written the same book on women in terms of the data." Dr. Steinmann says the research goes back to the time when she was doing her dissertation. : · "In 1951, as a matter of fact, 'even before that, I started to investigate the concept of roles for women. Of what they felt about themselves in terms of what was happening. The traditional role vs. th eso-called liberal role. The home oriented role as against the new career woman." MORE QUESTIONS What she found was many more questions than answers. Taking college girls, their f a- hers and mothers, she found what women felt they really were as people and what they bought men wanted in a woman. That's when Drs. Fox and Steinmann found eacli other. Having the same interest, they started questioning more and more people -- doctors, lawyers all types of professional people -- in America and abroad. "Whenever we gave a research paper, we found the same . discrepancies," she says. "Women felt a man wanted a home oriented woman -- one to sit home and take care of the family. But women also felt they were entitled to a life of their own." That led to the questioning of men. What did they think? What was their ideal woman like? "And we found that the ideal woman for the men was exactly the same as the woman's. So you see we had this problem that either somebody was lying or somebody was mis-projecting a feeling that he x she had or didn't have about he other," Dr. Steinmann said. The problem she says the men faced was that they wanted to be aggressive -- the traditional aspect of the male role. The man's ideal of himself was even more outgoing and more achieving, but he felt that a woman wanted a home oriented man. "A man who would be around the house. A supermarket man," she says. The women, she adds, felt heir ideal man was aggressive, maybe to some extent home oriented, "but actually, women said they wanted a man like the man's ideal -- m»re aggressive. "The problem is one of communication, I think," said Dr. Fox. "That's what we're really talking about. These people were not effectively communicating to each other wbal they would say to us. And there is discrepancy between whal they think or express on the one hand, and how they behave and the bahavioral cues they give to each other. This is the major problem to which we address ourselves in the las chapter of the book." Dr. Steinmann, however, feels the gap stems from the fact that women have b e e n Out In The Rocky Mountains The Buffalo Market Takes A Bullish Turn . HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The ·buffalo market is bullish. / H e r e on the high plains of the - R o . c k y Mountain country, 'ranchers who started raising buffalo as a novelty or hobby "now find they have some valu- '·able beasts romping around. Markets and restaurants are Bordering buffalo meat in record amounts. - B o b Schall, a Montana ranch- · er -- one of a handful raising ibuffalo -- is still kicking him- 'self for liquidating part of his "··herd in recent years. Prices are up, demand unprecedented. "· Great herds of buffalo, num: hering an estimated 20 million ;in the mid-1800s, once teamed this country. They wer« slaughtered · for their bides and for ir.meat as settlers moved West .'Historians said there were only · 551 in 1889 when the federal -government took emergency faction to save them from extinction. ,,. Roy Houck, president of the National Buffalo Association. The rest are owned privately. Houck, who believes he is the nation's largest buffalo feeder with, a herd of 3,500 -- not including this year's calf crop -said there are 20,000 buffalo in Canada. LIKE POKER Schall said raising buffalo las been akin to a poker game and he lost one hand. "If 1'c seen this (increased demand) ] irobably would have fenced a ittle better and not liquidated.' He had about 150 animals in recent years but cut the herd to ibout 50 on the 6,000-acre ranch le operates on the Flathead In dian Reservation south of the National Bison range. "I got started in this as i lobby, but the buffalo havt een real good for the ranch,' le said. Schall recently shippec some heifer calves to Idaho foi about $400 each. He fans cus toraers in Washington as well and in his own region. TTnilflr cnrr1 hi if fain · danrtVita Pound for pound, buffalo meat sells at prices 25 to 50 per cent higher than beef. A grass- fed buffalo is slaughtered at ,' to 4 years of age. Grain-fed cattle go to market when they're two. The nearly 19,000-acre Na- ional Bison Range was established in 1908 to help perpetuate a representative herd of American buffalo. The herd is kept at about 320 animals. The Durham Meat Co., San Jose, Calif., lists Safeway, Red 3wl, National Tea and Alber son's supermarket chains E large customers for buffalo meat. Bud Flocchlni, vice president and part o w n e r of Durham, said his firm also has buff a beef available by mail order i relatively small quantities. It sells for $4.90 a pound for boneless buffalo steak, $4.10 a pounc for T-bone steak, $2,50 for roasts, $2.85 for stew meat am $1.50 for ground buffalo burger.

"When the middle class worn- n started becoming educated le was promised the fruits of chieving roles yet nothing was orthcoming." Dr. Fox points out that the eneration they studied were etween the ages of 35 and 55. hey were children during a eriod when society In general ad a different set of ex- eolations.

"The husband under- itands why this is necessary le understands that this is fair le understands that his wife is allowed a life of her own, yet still feels a reaction that My father never had this im- osed .on him, what the hell, 'm seen here as a babysitter.' And he effectively communicates both the words and the eelings to the wife. The wife therefore responds more thoroughly to the feeling and says, He really wants me to stay lome, his acceptance of my reedom is a lot of baloney.'" Both Dr. Steinmann and Fox 10 on to say that these dis- :repancies are part of the wilding basis for hostility in marriages today. "And I want :o point out that you find the same discrepancies among college students today. Whether they are reacting to this generation that we are writing about is something that we still have to investigate," adds Dr. Steinmann. Dr. Steinrnann and Fox have each successfully combined marriage, family and career. Dr. Steinmann is a consulting psychologist, psychotherapist and lecturer at the New School for Social Research in New York City.

It started on Wyoming ranch where the meat was sold to Safeway stores and then in Custer State Park, S.D., where it was sold to Red Owl stores. He operates his own slaughter and processing plant. Some of the meat is processed at USDA-inspected plants, such as one to Rapid City, S.D., but Houck noted buffalo is still considered "a wild animal," and restrictions are not as stringent as those for slaughtering beef cattle, although all commercial outlets are state-inspected. Houck said some people not I knowledgable about buffalo had' been critical of their commercial slaughter "because it appears to be cutting down on their numbers." That is untrue, he said. SURPLUS ANIMALS "Most slaughter annuals are surplus males and old cows. All producing females are kept. I don't know of any productive animals used for slaughter any where," he said. A spokesman for the National Bison Range said the entire herd there probably could be sold at a moment's notice. In 1969, the range sold 79 buffalo which brought an average price of $368.48 a head. Victor May, range foremen, said the 70 buffalo moved through the auction ring this year brought an average of over $500 each.
