Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 8, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa For Better Health Concerns of Overpopulation, Health Lead to Birth Control By Dr. S.L. Andelman Birth control has been with us for centuries but recent concern ai)out overpopulation has only re emphasized its importance. I'rom earliest times women have tried to limit the size of their families or avoid becoming pregnant by practicing birth control. Generally, birth control refers to the; temporary prevention of pregnancy by various means rather than permanent prevention brought about by sterilization. The increased interest in birth Dr. S. L.

I nvestors Ii uide G By Sam Shulsky Q — I have been trying to learn something about the stock market, but still have a lot of questions to ask. I realize there are three types of stocks: speculative, income and growth. I think that the speculative stocks could be the fastest way to make money, but the risk is too high for ordinary people. Also, that some people have more information than others. What is considered a good return on stocks — 7, 8, IO percent? In what length of time? Would one do better investing, himself, rather than through a mutual fund — since the fund managers have to make some money, too? What is a good return on a fund? I am 36, married (both of us employed), two children, and with some money we’re afraid to invest now because of the uncertain market. A — There’s nothing in your letter that a book couldn’t try to answer. (In fact, that’s what I’ve tried to do in recent books.) Let’s take your questions in sequence: I—No matter how long you study the market, or how much you learn, there will always be questions. 2 — Your three stock head ings fire merely titles of convenience. Actually all three characteristics blend into one an other in exactly the same way the color spectrum runs through violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. (remember that helpful acronym “ v i b g y o r ’' from your high school days?) Naturally, green and red are easily distinguishable, but what about indigo and blue? One stock may l>e an outright speculation: a brand new company, not yet in operation, going into a brand new field, etc. Another may have supplied utility services for a century and paid dividends every year. They are certainly different forms of investments. But in between you will find all shadings. Don’t go by easy, convenient labels. Each stock has its own characteristics. Of course I he speculative issues offer the most hope of gain. The maxim ‘‘Nothing ventured nothing gained” is nowhere as true as it is in investing. 3 — What return on stocks? A good utility stock will yield 7 percent or more (although a few in high growth areas will yield less.) An aggressive growth stock in tho office machinery or drug field may yield as little as I percent. A mortgage company could yield 9 or IO percent or even more. lf by yield, however, you mean total reward over, say, a 10-year |>eri(>d, all bots are off. Some stocks will show a total profit (small dividend, large price gain) of perhaps 500 percent; others may pay 7 percent or 8 percent in annual dividends and show a mark* t loss over a 10-year period. The same vague answer goes for your query about length of limo it takes to get such rewards. Brand now issues, have doubled on (he day I.G.E. March 14 ... Watch Sunday’s Gazette jam Shulsky fhould always feel free to discuss any problems about birth control with your doctor. Beware of some of the available birth control techniques which are not particularly effective. Bo-called folk methods include coitus interruptus (withdrawal of the penis before ejaculation), prolonged lactation and post-coital douching — are largely ineffective. We know that nursing does inhibit ovulation, but the length of time this effect persists varies highly, depending on the individual. Ovulation can occur even without menstruation. Sterilization Work on male birth control pills and other techniques continues. Sterilization of either sex is of course IOO percent effective in preventing conception. Ab-1 s 11 n e n c e during the fertile! period, the basis of the rhythm! system, can also be effective. Although birth control meth-j ods of one sort or another are1 being utilized with ever greater! frequency, birth control still remains a controversial issue in I some quarters. Various religions, the Roman Catholic church chief among them, have not approved the concept. * * * Dr. Andelman welcomes letters outlining problems which he may discuss in future columns. He regrets however, that he cannot personally answer mail. Write to him in care of The Gazette.
