   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 11, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                g The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Thars.. July 11. 197! Whaf Young People Think Wine Flows Freely By Xasry Gilbert Paper Pastimes It's great fun to experiment with paper. Cut out flat shapes such as squares, circles, triangles, rectangles or more unusual ones. Fold paper into various sizes and shapes Try cutting on the folded edges, unfold, and see the imerrstiiig designs. Cut shapes into sections. For instance, a rectangle easily becomes two triangles when cut diagonally Here are some ways to change the surface of the paper: 1. Carl ihe paper by pulling a strip across ruler or a closed scissors. 2. Coll the paper by wrapping a strip around a pencil. dowel, or finger. 3. Fringe an edge by cutting many small slices into Ihe paper. 4. Fold the paper into halves, fourths, or eighths. 5. Score the paper by marking heavily with a pencil or sharp tool and fold along the mark. 6. Pleat by folding the paper hack and forth like an accur-. dion. Illiinnimitii Fringe. Pleat' Make seme three dimensional forms such as: 1. Cones by first cutting out a circle; then cut a slice half- way through; pull the circle into a cone by overlapping the paper at the slice and fasten. 2. Cylinders by simply rolling a piece of paper and taping it to keep its shape. 3. Spirals by cutting out a circle; start at a point on the outer edge and cut around and around the shape following the, edge into the center. 4. Stairs by using two paper strips of equal size; put one strip on the table; place the other strip at right angles to the first to make an "L" shape; fold the bottom strip over the top one; repeat this fold back and forth until all of both paper strips are used. The majority of today's young people have drunk wir.e either in their homes or when out with friends, according to a recent survey Fifty two percent of those polled said they drank wuie at family meals. Wine was served .on the1 average of once a week according to 17 percent; e.nco every few weeks for L'2 percent: once a month for IS percent: less than once a month ac- cording to M percent; and H percent gave no answer Most uf the college students and males polled said that they drink wine when out with their friends; females and high school students were not far behind percentage-wise. Most preferred red wine. next, "pop" wine. Added Touch Among those who explained why Ihey drank the beverage was Cat hey Chaffee. 17, of State College. Pa., who said "it's a nice added touch to supper and an opening of a show or some celebration." "It is a romantic, warm experience, no matter with whom you drink. It also makes me feel more says Pani Edmonston, 17, also from State College. "it's a nice complement to a good meal and is healthy, too." claims Roberta Panton, 17. of Nutley, .1. "My parents drink it very often with meals and since I do eat with them, I, too, enjoy it." explains Valerie Whittaker. Ifi. of Dallas. "I like the smooth mellow taste and the slowly building admits Bill Mathews, 21. of Youngstown, Ohio. Digestive Aid "It aids in the digestion of one's states Brian Van Wyke, 19, of Topsham, Maine. Yet, while most of those polled said they drank wine, only 46 percent felt that "wine drinking" was on the increase among their friends. Forty- four percent said that it was on the decrease, and percent gave no answer. Those who thought there was an increase believed that "the availability, legality, and tht price." as noted by Tec Rogers. 17, of New Haven, Conn., were among the reasons for the rise in young people's drinking. "Mostly because the pop wine is cheap, and it makes you feel sophisticated drinking wine instead of says Chris Herwing, 15, o Haraham, La. "For one, Ihe lower drinking age." adds Mike Farnim. 19. o Fayetteville, Ark. "Also wines are becoming much more available and cheaper. Thus wine is becoming a fad." German Says Inflation Bars European Unity BRUSSELS (AP) A Bel- gian newspaper quoted West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt as saying economic- and monetary union in Europe "is impossible to achieve between inflationist countries and those seeking monetary stability." The Socialist daily Le Peuple said Schmidt was explaining that a union of this kind would never be organized while some countries endeavor to keep inflation down and others do little or nothing about it. It said he added that "the stronger member nations in the Common Market should help the weaker nations. West Germany will most certainly not refuse to help the weaker countries as soon as.il sees that they are ready to help them- selves." Plans Lottery To Give Lift To Hitchhikers Mich (UI'l) A who was arrested for hitchhiking has a plan to reward motorists who f-.ivt i-> u t Ktp. Perry Hullard spon- sored to establish a hitchhiker's !utur> I'nder the plan, based on an existing in Poland, hitchhikers would give special tu those mo- lorists offering rides. The bureau of state lottery would issue the coupon books containing 101) imlmilua! coupons at a cos! of 81. F.ach coupon would signify HI miles of transportation The coupons would entitle the inotori.-.t to chances in a special lottery. "The purpose is to provide rides to those without trans- portation by encouraging mo- torists ttt share their cars with others." Billiard said. "The over-all result would be a savings in fuel, better use of cars and assistance for those in need uf rides." Teens on Wheels Backs Dum-Dum Police Bullets HARTFORD, Conn. (I'PI) Gov. Thomas V.eskill defended state police use of hollow-point bullets, saying "those who prefer the police shoot lollypops at gunmen will just have to go elsewhere." Connecticut state police are switching from .38-caliber handguns to the more powerful .357 magnums and are issued bullets, called dum-dums, that are banned in warfare as bru- tal and inhumane. "We like it hero in Connec- Meskill said of the new guns and ammunition. s "The real issue is when the guns are used not the am- munition. Troopers use great restraint in the use of their weapons."

If you 're killed, that's one thing, but if you 're injured and if you arefi 't able to pay the medical bills, everyone suffers finan- cially. Say, for instance, that you sustain brain damage in on accident, and you end up being c iho rc-s? of your Who pays? Your family, yes, as much as they can, but then society sfarts picking up the tab.
