Item: The number of Americans who visit the theme parks which now dot the U.S. landscape from coast to coast ha; soared from about 16 million in 1964 to more than 54 million in 1973 and will reach 73 million by 197b, the industry forecasts. Item: A money-saving, time- saving fact is thatjin several important types of parks cluster together Sylvia Porter to cater to a variety of tastes and the entire family. The three basic types are: Animal or sea life parks, such as l.ion Country Safari and Seven Seas; single-theme parks such as Knoll's Berry Farm and Opryland; and mul- tiple-theme parks such as the Iwi Disney operations in California and Florida, first among them all in terms of revenue, and the six parks of Six Flags, headquartered in I.us Angeles and first in terms of number of parks and attrac- tions.

Not that it makes the way the East-West cards are set up, but it would wheel in a lot of the time." Oswald: "Clubs don't break; diamonds don't break, the heart finesse is wrong and a careless declarer might ac- tually get set at six notrump. v Jim: "He shouldn't be.

Cet detailed infor- mation about parks and at- tractions of interest by writing directly to the parks or phon- ing the local Chamber of Com- merce or visitors bureau. Cheek out Ihc energy con- servation policies of each park. "Some offer reduced admis- sions for repeat visits during a given period of lime to en- courage people to says Ned DC Witt, pi- sident of Six Flags. "Others have begun giving discounted parking for groups of four people or more." Still others haw instituted their own bus services from central locations to get people out of their cars altogether. This could be a real money- saver if you come by train, bus or plane and don't want to spend money renting a car. Check into the pricing policies. Most, parks have an admission fee and then charge additional for rides and attrac- tions. An increasing number, though, are adopting the "single-price" policy under which' you are allowed a full day's entertainment with unlimited free access to all rides and attractions. A single-price admission park could be ideal for the budget- minded. To save energy and gel the most out of your park visit, .visit the park on Sunday or on Tuesday through Friday. The peak attendance days include Monday, Saturday and holidays. Arrive toward late afternoon when the crowds are thinning out, the tempera- ture will be cooler and the park will be taking on the enchant- ment of evening. Or if you have children, arrive when the' park opens. Save money on food by planning your snacks and food breaks to make sure you're not on a non-slop eating expedi- tion. Ask about children's por- tions, even if there is no children's menu at a res- taurant. Bring your own lunch and eat in the picnic areas.

Judge: Marriage Permit Must Go To Man, Woman SKATTLK (AP) A slate law barring two persons of Ihe same sex from obtaining a marriage license has been upheld by the Washington court of appeals.

L. Andelman Mfiilal huatlh workers and society at large say it's normal for teenage boys to take a poke at someone once in a while. But adolescent girls who act this violently are not considered normal. Antifeminist as it seems, this is the conclusion reached by Chicago psychiatrist Daniel Offer based on a study of juvenile delinquents who were patients at Illinois Stale Psychiatric hospital. Dr. Offer says the patients and staff studied reflect the fascination our culture has with violence. "The most interesting finding he says, "when we compared the likability scores of the adolescents as scored by staff members with the extent of violent behavior undertaken while on our unit." Bruises The hospital staff, the main target of the teens' violence, suffered bruises along with a few broken bones and wounds made as patients supplement- ed their fists with bottles and other makeshift weapons. Dur- ing the study a group of teens rioted. The therapists disliked the violent boys when they met them but grew to like them. They had the same reaction to the quiet girls. On the other hand, they grew to dislike the quiet boys and the violent girls. Dr. Offer explains these feelings by observing that the therapists believed they were reaching the boys when they finally "acted out." On the other hand, the violent girls were not only unlikable ac- cording to the therapists' stan- dards but "also have a very low opinion of their own worth." While the boys' violent acts came as they developed confidence in themselves, the girls who were violent "did not see themselves as healthy. They did not project'con- fidence." Aggressive Sports This parallels society's fos- tering of aggressive sports for boys and not for girls, Dr. Offer explains. He believes the observations made on the psychiatric unit can "best be understood as a microcosm of society at large." The patients and staff were all "reared in an environment Dr. S.I. Andelman where violence in the home and on the streets is a.common everyday occurrence. They learned to experience violence as a normal phenomenon and they derived pleasure from its occurrence." As a side comment. Dr. Offer observes, "Mental health professionals have found it most difficult to deal therapeutically with violence; and the mental health profes- sion in general, and we psychiatrists in particular, have been reluctant until recently to work with juvenile delinquents. It is possible that at least one reason is fear of looking into the potential for violence in each of us." AFTER TWO PRINKS EVERYBODY'S AN EX-PUG 6800-YA GOT A BOOK WAUU5? HE'LL KIM THAT ONE.'

Taylor Believes Stalingrad Was Main Battle WASHINGTON (UPI) What was the principal battle of World war II? British history books are filled with tales of the tide be- ing turned at El Alamcin in North Africa. Russian books talk of Stalingrad. American books speak of Normandy. Asked which really was the decisive battle of the war, Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, com- mander of the American 101st Airborne division on D-Day, came down for the Russians. "Stalingrad certainly turned the he said. "It made things enormously easier for us." In that epic battle of December, 1941 January, 1942, Nazi, Germany, lost men.
