For American Health Educators Swedish Style Sex Education Is Study Topic STOCKHOLM (AP) - Some 40 American healt h educators went to Uppsala, Sweden, this past- summer to sludy sex education, Swedish style, looking not for sin which is always there In the eye of the beholder but for advice on how to teach the controversial subject. ' Sweden is one of the few countries in the world where sex education is compulsory from- the first grade when the child Is 7 and up. . "I was surprised to learn that the Swedes are not as uninhibited in sex matters as we were made to believe back home," said the Rev. William R. Grosh from University of Hawaii. "But It is true, though, that both the government and the people here seem to have more liberal Ideas about sex than we. They don't fuss so much about The Rev. Mr. Grosli is Episco palian campus minister at a community college in Hawaii and he teaches human sexuality "with the bishop's per mission." 'NO BLONDES' Steve Sloan from Paducah, Ky., graduate student at New York University ( N Y U ) , was disappointed. ' ' N o beautiful Swedish jlondes swarmed around me when I arrived. The image of ·Swedish Sin in the United States has proved wrong -- but :h« Swedes do seem more liberal in their attitudes towards sex. There's not so much talk about it," he said. The eight-week, 13-credit course, labeled the-NYU graduate study of human sexuality, marriage and family life in Sweden, was located in this faraway corner of Europe because "Sweden provides a particularly interesting. laboratory since its industrial progress has developed all the illnesses of advanced societies," said NYU professor Dr. Marian Hamburg, director of the human sexuality program. She conducted, the first half of the course in. Uppsala. "Sweden' has pioneered Jn health care as well as programs of early sex education," she added. Sex education has been taught In Swedish schools for more than 20 years and was Florida's Atlantic Coast Is Threatened By Heavy Rains CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) -- Under the floodlit glow of a nearby rocket launching pad, hundreds of persons filled sandbags to pit against rising tides that tumbled one Cape Canaveral beach home into the Atlantic and threatened others. More than two inches of rain fell in 24 hours Sunday at this area near the Kennedy Space Center. Rising tides inundated the sand near beach homes and condominiums, making it the hardest hit of nearby communities as heavy rains drenched a large coastal section of Florida north of Miami. In some areas it was the fourth straight day of near flood conditions and threatened beach erosion. At -Boca Ratan In south Palm Beach County, 13 Inches of rain fell in 24 hours. Flooding also was reported along Florida A1A and U.S. 1 in Hollywood and West Palm Beach. Officials said rain waters forced evacuation of several -motels between Vero Beach and Fort Pierce. . At Cape Canaveral, fire and police officers joined volunteers from Patrick Air Force Base in an effort to shore up the beachfront. They were aided by dump trucks and sand scoops provided by county officials. The effort began at noon Sun day. When night fell, their illumi nation came from the nearby space center's pad 17, already 'loodlit for the sched.ulec launch, of a Westar commu nications satellite Wednesday morning. "Those who a r e loo old to shovel arc holding tarps to keep the rain off those who art filling sandbags," said Martin Caidin, a resident of Cap Canaveral. "This is supposed to be, a town that doesn't have any civ ic spirit, but you've never seen anything like this," he said "All those supposedly rotten surfers and hippies are ou there working like crazy." Meanwhile, forecasters at thi National Center in Miami ex tended small craft warnings t Virginia Beach, Va., as a low pressure system moved north northwest from near Ver Beach at about 12 miles pe hour. Rainfall amounts over Nortl east Florida and along th Georgia coast were expected t lessen today. Forecasters sai the system's squalls woul probably lake their winds--u to 40 m.p.h--seward.

Those opposed to sex educa- on at the time said, as they do the United States and clso- herc now, that it would en- urage license and that young ople would not marry as they uld enjoy sex anyway. They aintalned the new generation ould not want to bother with lildren, and venereal diseases ould spread like wildfire. But the reality seems to be fferent. So far, there have een no signs of family lite eing destroyed in Sweden. In ct, the latest vogue among e youngsters is to have a real edding. A study made at .ockholm University in 1967 lowed that' 80-85 per cent of he girls thought it right to ave intercourse only if one as in love. Roughly half the oys asked agreed. VD has undeniably increased, articularly gonorrhea, but that a global phenomenon. The NYU students, however, lis summer found out that the mbitious sex education pro rams do not always work out ell. Teachers are frequently ot adequately prepared to de- ver such education despite the laborate government instruc- ion. TEACHER KEY "The teacher is the key to a ensible sex education," saic on aid Moglia of Philadelphia 3 a., who himself trains teach- rs in health education. "But we have to know more bout our own sexuality betore inching we have discussed lat at length here, sort of a roup therapy," he added. Deryck Calderwood, assistant rofessor at NYU, who was in harge of the latter part of the ourse in Uppsala, said that he ninks most parents in · the United States would like their hildren to learn more about ex and .the children mast cer- ainly want to know more. In 1970 he made a survey for lis dectoral thesis asking 12,000 chool children around the United States what questions hey had about sex. The result was a flood of queries. "Which goes to show how vrong the parents and teachers were who said 'Not our kids, hey wouldn't ask questions like hat,' " said Elaine Smith, sex educator at a community col- ege in Seattle, Wash. The Uppsala course, which due to its success will be re- eated next summer, drew par- icipants from all over the [Jnited States as NYU is one of .he few American universities hat now has a human sexuality program. Half of them were graduate students and half .vere professionals in the field, "rom school health workers to dental technicians. They did not study sex educa- ion only. On their program were visits to hospitals, day care centers, a homosexual club -- homosexuality in Sweden is not illegal -- and Slock- "lolm live shows which were 'not particularly exciting," as one of them put it. Comparing Sweden with the United States in the field of sex education, Calderwood said: "Sweden - is far more advanced legally. There are, for instance, no laws against behavior, such as homosexuality, but. laws don't, necessarily change people's attitudes."

He said he made the attempt on instructions from a pro-Communist Korean resident of Japan, but was deeply sorry over Lhe death of Park's wife because he didn't plan to kill her. Moon said he had not known of Mrs. Park's death until investigators told him last week, and didn't know how a bullet hit her since she was sitting more than 16 feet from her husband. Moon testified on the opening day of his trial for the Aug. 15 Independence Day attack in which Mrs. Park was shot to death but Park escaped injury. A teen-age girl also was killed in the shooting in a Seoul auditorium. Moon is charged with murder, attempted murder, and attempted rebellion. If convicted he faces the death penalty. Moon said he entered the country with a false Japanese passport and fired five shots with a revolver he had stolen from a Japanese police station in Osaka. He said a Japanese couple, Yukio and Michiko Yoshii, helped him obtain the passport under Yukio's name, knowing that he was to go to Seoul to try to assassinate Park. Stringent security measures apparently were ordered for Moon's trial because of rumors that the radical Japanese Red Army or Arab guerrillas might stage terrorist acts to rescue him. About 220 newsmen and other civilians were searched by police before being allowed inside the courtroom. Moon, 22, was indicted last month on 16 counts, including murder, New Doctor Begins Practice In Springdale SPRINGDALE--Frank A.

Foyetteville Savings Loan Association 201 N. East Avenue These people had ~ reasons to choose electric heat Engineer: When you take a look at the facts, electric heat is a very efficient use of energy. Here's why. Electricity can be produced by a variety of local natural resources. And once produced, electricity can do thousands of jobs in the home or office. But the primary fuel needed to produce electricity is only applicable fo a few jobs. Electricity is versatile. It's a real energy saver and a very economical Way fo heat your home. Building Contractor; Because I have electric heating in my own home, it's easy to understand why more and more customers ask for it when they get ready to build. Electric heating requires very little maintenance. Maybe a filter change every now and then. It takes up a lot less space and there are dozens of types to choose from. Baseboard, furnace and heat pump (which combines both heating and cooling). I really recommend electric heating. Mother: As a mother of 2, I'm very concerned about the safety of my children. That's why when we decided to remodel, we chose electric heating. There's no flame to worry about. No smoke and no soot. Most important, there are no fumes to pollute the air my family breathes. As far as our family's concerned, electric heat is very safe. There are many reasons to choose electric heat. But the most important is wise energy management. We have the electricity yon need.
