Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 8, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa For Better Health Concerns of Overpopulation, Health Lead to Birth Control By S.L. Andolmao Wrlh control has been wilh us for centuries but recent concern about overpopulation has only re-emphasized its importance. From earliest times women have tried to limit the size of HiPir families or avoid becom- ing pregnant by practicing birth control. Generally, birth control refers to the temporary preven- tion of pregnancy by various means rather than permanent prevention brought about by sterilization. The increased interest in birth control, on the part of society in general, is due not only to con- cern about overpopulation but also because of public health problems. The health of (he mother and her family is depen- dent in part on spacing and lim- itation of the children she con- ceives. Of course, a variety of birth control techniques are avail- Dr. S. L. Andelman able. Birth control pills are by far the most effective, although not all women can tolerate them. Select your method of birth control with the guidance of a physician and according to the preferences of you and your spouse. Failure Rale Basically, the failure rate of any method depends largely on whether it is used properly and consistently. No one method is suitable for everyone and you Sam he [nvestor's Jjjuide By Sam Shulsky Q I have been trying to learn something about the stock market, but still have a lot of questions to ask. I realize there are three types of stocks: spec- ulative, income and growth. I think that the speculative stocks could be the fastest way to make money, but the risk is too high for ordinary people. Also, that some people have more in- formation than others.'What is considered a good return on stocks 7, 8, '10 percent? In what length of time? Would one "do better investing, himself, rather than through a mutual fund since the fund managers have to make some money, too? What is a good return on a fund? I am 36, married (both of us two children, and with some money we're afraid to invest now because of the .un- certain market. A There's nothing in your letter that a book couldn't try to answer. (In fact, that's what I've tried to do in recent books.) Let's take in sequence: matter how long you study the market, or how much you learn, there will always be questions. 2 Your three stock head- ings are merely titles of conve- nience. Actually all three char- acteristics blend into one an- other in exactly the same way the color spectrum runs through violet, indigo, blue, green, yel- low, orange and red. (re- member that helpful acronym v i b g y o r from your high school Naturally, green and red are easily distin- guishable, but what about indigo and blue? One stock may be an outright speculation: a brand new company, not yet in opera- tion, going into a brand new field, etc. Another may have supplied utility services for .a century and paid dividends every year. They are certainly different forms of investments. But in between you will find all shadings. Don't go by easy, convenient labels. Each- stock has its own characteristics. Of course the speculative issues offer the most hope of gain. The maxim "Nothing ventured nothing gained" is nowhere as true as it is in investing. 3 r- What return on stocks? A good utility stock will yield 7 percent or more (although a few in high growth areas will yield less.) An aggressive growth stock in the office machinery or drug field may yield as little as 1 percent. A mortgage company could yield 9 or 10 percent or even more. If by yield, however, you mean total reward over, say, a 10-year period, all bets are off. Some stocks will show a total profit (small dividend, large price gain) of perhaps 500 per- cent; others may pay 7 percent or 8 percent in annual dividends and show a market loss over a 10-year period. The same vague answer goes for your query about length of time it takes to get such rcwnrds. Brand new issues, have doubled on the day ftmuM always M free 10 dis- cuss any problems about birth control wilh your doctor. Beware of some of the avail- able birth control techniques which are not particularly effec- tive. So-called folk methods in- clude coitus intcrruptus (with- drawal of the penis before ejac- prolonged lactation and post-coital douching are largely ineffective. We know that 'nursing does inhibit ovula- tion, but the length or time this effect persists varies highly, de- pending on the individual. Ovu- iation can occur even without menstruation. Sterilization Work on male birth control lills and other techniques con- :inues. Sterilization of either sex s of course 100 percent effective :n preventing conception. Ab- s t i n e n c e during the fertile period, the basis of the rhythm system, can also be effective.

They are now selling at a few cents on the dollar. Should we sell out? We don't need additional ncome. A Since you are not desper- ate for additional income and since sale of the bonds would bring in an inconsequential amount, I'd vote to hold on. There is no way one can tell how a bankruptcy will work out, or when. But since, I assume, you arc leaving an estate to your heirs, you might as well leave them this speculation, too.
