Society TOr Women Features Islands in Population Trouble Despite Birth Control Plan By Arnold Zcitlin MANILA, The Philippines (AP) Despite five years of a model birth control program. Philippine women seem to be having more babies than ever. The fecundity of the Philip- pine woman is rising, accord- ing to the preliminary figures of a survey reported by Dr. Mercedes Concepcion. the country's most eminent demographer and director of the University of the Philip- pines institute of population. "We seem to have had some success in encouraging women to marry later in said Dr. Concepcion, "but they seem to respond to this by having more babies." Eighf Children According to the figures, which Dr. Coneepcion and other family planners emphasized were preliminary, the Philippine woman has about eight children in a life- time. A similar survey in 1968 showed her with six children. Dr. Concepcion conceded the new set of figures reflect more accurate survey work. But, she "We thought that if the figure did not decline, at least it would remain the same." Dr. Concepcion's memoran- dum on the survey has provoked deep soul-searching among family planners here. It has also illustrated the dif- ficulties even model birth con- trol programs face in the developing world's struggle against rising population. ELLEN PETERS FETED AT KITCHEN SHOWER Mrs. Warren McAllister of Solon was hostess at a kitchen bridal shower and buffet supper Wednesday evening given for Miss Ellen Peters. Twenty-five guests shared the courtesy. Miss Peters, laughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mel- vin Peters, 371 Easlland drive SE, is the June 15 bride-elect of J. Robert llten. son of the Eugene Iltens. 3200 Twelfth avenue SE. "We've had about one million said Dr. Conrado Lorenzo, head of the government's commission on population in a reference to the Filipinos who have said they were practicing family plan- ning. "It seems that something has to be happening. "Even if we assume that it is true fertility is rising. I am comfortable that we have the right approach. It only means we haven't done enough." Population here, thought to .grow by at.least 3.01 percent a year, passed the 40 million mark last year. Demographers predict that, if growth is unchecked, this poor country with an annual per capita in- come of S240 will be trying to support 90 million by the end of the century. U.S. Aid The birth control program is well supported. U.S. Agency' for International Development (AID) provides more money for Philippines population con- trol than for any similar program in the Dr. Lorenzo estimates U.S. assis- tance this year at S6 million to S7 million. The Philippines es- timates it will spend a total of more than million, includ- ing U.S. help. The government has backed the program. Imelda R. Mar- cos, wife of President Fer- dinand E. Marcos, personally solicited a SI million private contribution for the S2 million new headquarters for Dr. Lorenzo's commission on population. Even the Roman Catholic- Church, to which 85 percent of Philippines claim to belong, has cooperated as long as the government included the rhythm method of birth control in its "cafeteria" policy of of- fering families a voluntary choice of all methods of birth prevention. Sterilization Measure Slung by the inclusion of sterilization in a presidential decree on family planning, the Church is showing signs of mounting its greatest opposi- tion in years to the program. In a pastoral letter, the Church's bishops have ordered Catholic medical personnel to refuse to participate in direct abortion or contraceptive sterilization. "We are said the bishops, "about the current massive campaign to talk couples into accepting a number of mechanical and chemical contraceptives The Church claims the Philippines is on its way to en- forced sterilization as a population control measure. Dr. Lorenzo, Dr. Conception and Information Secretary Francisco S. Tatacl met Church leaders at the end of February to assure them no coercion was intended. But Church officials point out the growing emphasis on such procedures as vasec- tomy in family planning publicity. In the meantime, social scientists, such as Prof, (ielia Castillo, who works among rice farmers from her post at the University of the Philippines in Los Banos, believe most parents see children as a form of old age insurance: The more children they have, the greater their chances of being comfor- table in old age.

"You have no idea how tender my jaws feel after six months being jammed together." Doctors at Nottingham General hospital decided to remove the clamp after Mrs. Turner complained of agonis- ing pain in her lucked jaws last week. "The pain was red hot, my face fell swollen. I couldn't she said. "It appears that the silver plate holding my jaws together had slipped and was setting up an infection." The doctor who examined her at the hospital said, "1 think you've had enough." An upper and bottom silver plate had been cemented to her own teeth and locked together by a clamp. The plates had been taken out for cleaning once or twice during the six months but she was not finally freed of the contraption until Wednesday. Its removal took 45 minutes and she said, "It was murder."

Ira-large lady who began Hie harsh slimming regime llial won attention around the world. The enforced diet of fruit juice, soup and concoctions of beaten eggs and dried milk worked a minor miracle.

Mrs. Turner said she will stay under the care of a hospi- lal dietitian for the next few months and has been told not to eat any solid food until Sep- tember. 1 She also paid tribute to her family for helping her through many low points of her ordeal.
