The statistics on current life styles both moves. Tsigures documenting today s As ask nation Between adults and children gloomy indeed. One of three marriages ends Nijm Norce and the number of children effected by divorce has increased seven times since the turn of the Cen Tun it is estimated that four of ten children born in this decade will spend part of their childhood in a single Parent family. Continues to be fashionable but seemingly not As much so As in earlier times. The National Center for health statistics reported last year that the number of marriages dropped by seven per cent from 1973 to 1975, the latest available collating period. Yet the number of couples living together without Benefit of clergy Rose by 80 per cent Between 1970 and this year. The greatest shift in family life has figures underline scope of illegal problems much has been said about the problem of aliens entering the United Stales illegally refugees for the most part from mexican poverty. A Long and difficult to patrol Border fac Iii their entry. But the scope of the problem May been fully apparent to Many americans. The immigration and naturalization service has announced that during the last fiscal year end ing september the service caught More than one million illegal aliens and Send them Home. As a Rule of thumb the service estimates that at least two aliens Cross illegally Inlo the . For each one caught. Ii is obvious thai last year hi1 became part of a human i Malanche. People who work in the i Migra Linin Field estimate anywhere from 2 million to 12 million illegal aliens now reside in the . Considering the activity last year alone the Low Side of the estimates can be discarded. The problem of stemming the tide continues to be one of the most difficult Border challenges in the a tinn a history. Been the increase in working wives and mothers. The . Labor department says the number of families in which both Hus band and wife work has risen from 22 per cent in 1950 to 42 today. In 1948 Only 26 per cent of married women with school age children worked outside the Homo. Last Yeai this ratio had climbed to 54 per cent. An even greater percentage Wise increase in the work Force took place among women with preschoolers. It went from 13 per cent in 1948 to 37 Pel cent in 1976. As to be expected the experts draw conflicting conclusions from those developments. Amitai Etzioni a sociologist at Columbia University views the Statis tics As proof positive of the family deteriorating. Al the present accelerating rate of he wrote a few months ago the United states will run out of families not Long after it runs out of the Carnegie Council on children lakes a More elastic View. Families arc it reported in september but it is a mistake to confuse change Wilh the Pessin ism expressed by Etzioni a feeling shared by most non experts in the Council s opinion stems from an outmoded set of views about How families chief among them is what the Council Calls the myth of the self sufficient family and the widely held belief thai parents alone Are responsible for what becomes of their children. Rather states the Council s conclusion families not now nor were they Ever the self sufficient building blocks of society. They Are deeply influenced by Broad social and economic forces Over which they have no Many organizations and individuals the Council includes Are urging the Federal government to develop and adopt what they term a coherent National family Waller f. Mondale the vice president is a leading proponent of such an exercise. We he stated to begin shaping a society that just does t tolerate family life or pretend to be Neutral toward it. We need instead a society that it and helps it no one expert and Layman alike contemplating the statistical assault upon the american family believes in will Clurn to its concept in Pioneer times nor under today s restive social and economic trends would it be desirable. What is needed to insure America s future is a development to halt the erosion which Etzioni Points Oul in such Stark language.

The thesis Marvin Harris propounds is that Early Man did not have such Lough conditions to live under All things considered. Stone age Hunters worked fewer hours for their sustenance than do typical chinese and egyptians today or despite their unions modern Day factory Harris says.

Only sen. Gravel wants new canal Washington president Carter casually suggested recently that a new sea level shipping route Myrhl soon be necessary to replace the increasingly outmoded Panama canal regardless of whether the Senate ratifies lie new treaties. The general Public reaction was one of suprise and in difference the subject has not been raised again by the president or anyone else in the administration. Indeed Carter spoke impulsively after a private Conversa Tion with sen. Mike gravel d Al Iska Wim is the most enthusiastic advocate of a second big ditch in fact lie s about the Only one. When this columnist asked Alejandro Orfila Secretary general of the organi Saliou of american Stales what he thought of a new inter oceanic canal he replied with a smile you must have talking to Mike serious discussion of develop ing an alternative route whether in Panama or cd Only complicate the debate Over he newly negotiated treaties and the president has enough Trou ble in that area Asil is. The treaties nonetheless set the stage for future bargaining about just such an idea. They provide that this country will nol build a new sea level canal in any other Central american country except Panama in re turn for a Promise from Panama not to permit a second canal in its territory without our approval or cooperation. Gravel s inner Cal in a new sea level canal stems from his conviction thai it would provide the cheapest and most Effie enl Means of transporting All the new Oil and from his Home state Alaska from the West coast to Gulf and East coast ports where it is most needed lie dismisses existing pipelines As inadequate and excessively expensive and doubts even new pipeline projects will have the capacity to handle he projected surplus Supply of alaskan Oil expected on the West coast in ii years. Furthermore the present Panama canal cannot handle the huge modern nil tankers shipping Oil by smaller ships is both slower and More costly. Ami sailing around the tip of South America is prohibitively expensive. A special commission created by in 1964 studied the possibility of a sea level anal at great length. After considering several lentil routes it settled upon passage through Panama As Ihu most politically and economically feasible. And it concluded that the huge financial outlay required would be justified by National defense and foreign policy benefits. There is the question of what might happen to lie ecosystems of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans if they should mix in an into oceanic canal.
