Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 13, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa g The Cedar Rapids Gazette: MOD.. May 13. 1974 By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: This is to in- form your correspondent, Bar- bara CI. in Wilkes Barre. Pa that she is not losing her mind she did read thai it is possi Me to square a circle. The mathematician who worked it out was Edward V. Graef and a technical paper explaining Ihe method was authored by him and Harris uf San Diego Stall1 college. !f one changes the rules slightly, he can trisect angles and square circles. Using the kind of curve they do. they are able to solve three ancient problems (1) trisecting the angle, (2) squaring the circle and (3) duplicating the cube with just one method. I hope this helps your correspondent 1 enclose a copy of the article, which was published five years ago in the Pittsburgh Press. HENRY G. GOULD: PROF. OF MATHEMATICS W. VA. U., MORGANTOWN. W. VA. DEAR PROFESSOR: Bar- bara will bless you tonight in her prayers. Now, if anyone out there has a mathematical problem, those with license numbers ending in an odd number please write to Professor Gould on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. And those with even numbers write on the remaining days. Thanks, Henry, I needed you. DEAR that our cross isn't the heaviest is small consolation. There are many of us, but those who aren't in our positions rarely give us a second thought. We are single fathers caring for small children. The cost of day-care and maintenance of the households we put together in better days causes us to lead semi-clois- tered lives. If we should meet some attractive lady, we can't ask to take her out to dinner and a movie because the bud- get doesn't allow for that plus a sitter to stay with the young- sters. An invitation to spend an evening at my home is given awkwardly and is sure to be misunderstood. Nobody is go- ing to call me and nobody is going to visit me, so after the kiddies are in bed, I sit here wishing away the best years of my life. Can you put in a good word for us, Abby? I have.a nice lit- tle home, two pretty little kids, over 200 bottles of homemade wine in the basement and time on my hands. BILL DEAR BILL: Haven't you ever heard of Parents Without Partners?

Society for Women Features Doctor Studies Rope Rhymes By M. A. Bartholomew Dr. Butler, who has collected STORRS, Conn. (AP) The than rhymes from next time you see a youngster throughout the jumping rope and reciting 'J seemingly innocent rhymes, listen carefully. The child may be telling you more than you think. "You can tell a great deal about the psychology of children from rope rhymes and about the culture of said Francelia Butler, a University of Connecticut English professor who specializes in children's litera- ture. world, left Sunday armed with a dozen jump ropes for a six- week Asian tour. With the help of an in- terpreter, she says visit villages in Southeast Asia, India and Japan, giving children jump ropes and collecting their rhymes. Dr. Butler said most of the rhymes are scraps of ballads dating back to Roman times, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. "The reason why they last is that there's something haunt- ing about them. They are remembered emotions that have a universality about them because they 'deal with the problems of growing up and she said. Frustration A constant theme throughout many of the rhymes is the frustration young children, experience with their families, especially younger brothers and sisters, Dr. Butler said. She gave the following example. "I had a little brother, his name was Tiny Tim, I put him in the bathtub and taught him how to swim. He drank up all the water, he ate up all the soap; he died last night with a bubble in his throat." Other rhymes popular with children reflect a rather mat- ter of fact acceptance of death. "Mother, Mother, I am ill; call for the doctor over the hill. Doctor, doctor I will die. Yes, my dear, but do no cry." "Children don't like to be Dr. Butler daid. "They want to be like adults. In their fantasy world, they can work out various family and life situations they become in- volved in. And rope skipping is a rehearsal for life." Golf -AP Wireohot Dr. Francelia Butler, a University of Connecticut English professor has collected over jump rope rhymes from around the world. She says the rhymes actually deal with the problems children face while growing up. Dr. Butler left Sunday for a six-week Asian tour to study more jump roping rhymes.

Enrico Fermi's Nuclear Research Unknown to Wife CHICAGO (AP) Mrs. Enrico Fermi had known for some time that she would be the honored guest at Monday's ceremony in-which the Na- tional Accelerator laboratory is renamed after her husband. But because of wartime secrecy she did not know for. years that her husband was the leader in nuclear research that ushered in the atomic age. It was not until after the first atomic bomb had been developed at Los Alamos, N.M., she said, that she learned about his secret research at the University of Chicago. Fermi, Nobel Prize winner in physics in 1938, died in 1954 at 53. The National Accelerator laboratory in suburban Batavia will be named Fermi National Accelerator laboratory. Now nearly completed, the labora- tory-is the world's largest nuclear facility.

By Sunday night. 73.8 percent of the country's million registered voters had cast their ballots for or against the three-year-old divorce law. Public opinion surveys before the referendum indicated a slight edge in favor of keeping the law. with up to 80 percent of those under 30 in favor uf it and nearly as many DVT 55 opposed to it. But a late trend indicated many people were undecided. A majority vole against divorce would automatically erase the law from the books. But either a yes or no decision may split the fragile center-left coalition government beyond repair, plunging Italy into another political crisis while the dominant Christian Democrats try to put together Ihe country's 37th postwar government. Repeal Campaign The repeal campaign was sponsored by Ihe Vatican and the Christian Democrats, Italy's Roman Catholic party. It was also supported by the neo.-fascist Kalian Social movement, a party whose support is normally considered an embarrassment. Ranged against them were the other three members of the government Socialists, Democratic Socialists and the Communists. Socialist leader Pietro Nenni warned that repeal of the divorce law would "upset present political a clear threat to take the Socialists out of the government. But a vote for retention of the law could subject Rumor to pressure from conservative Catholics to break with the leftists. In the three years since Italy got its first divorce law, fewer than couples have filed suit to have their marriages severed, and about divorces have been granted. Grounds include a five-year legal separation, sentencing of a spouse to prison for more than 15 years and conviction of :t sex crime or of murder of a member of the family. "Modernize Society" Among the voters Sunday were Luciano Glierardi, a 26- year-olrt office worker, and his bride Mirella Montechiari. They went from the altar to the polling both voted for divorce. "We want to modernize said Luciano. "We don't want to go into reverse." "I'm voting against said night watchman'Pino Gunella. who was accompanied by his wife, Giuseppina. "When I want to divorce take her home and kill her. That's how we do it here." Giuseppina, a squat, mustached woman with curlers showing through a pink hair net, laughed. "I'd divorce you tomorrow if I thought anyone else would have she said. "But they won't so I don't want divorce." The Rev. Giovanni Franzoni, Italy's most controversial priest, who has clashed many times with the hierarchy, challenged an order from his superiors to stop campaigning in favor of the divorce law. Church authorities banned him from saying Mass and administering sacraments. Thousands of priests and laymen voiced support for him. They claim that though they are against divorce as Catholics, they cannot stop others from having it.
