Different In Mom, Pop's Era Revolution In Young Generation By JURATS KAZJCKAS NEW YORK (AP) cm bet Dud's old raccoon coal that whw he and were in college: -They didn't live nest door to each other in a dorm. -The school doctor dido I give her bos ot pills every month. -The girls dkm't pass the hat in the cafeteria to help pay for a class-mates legal abortion. -No one lacked a sign ui the dorm proclaiming Make love, not war" or "Matt love, not babies." They do all over the United States. So there s sexual revolution on campus and elsewhere among the young, right? Yes. And DO. No, because the real revow- Bon may only be beginning. Those whose business it is to study youth and morality say thai what's happened far is only the sleady evolu- tion of a treed launched.in the 1920s; three roaring 'Ms when today's parents and grandpar- ents'began burying Victorian- ism and when figures indicate the rate of pre-marital sex for women more than doubled. MAY CHANGE TUNE ___ And while talk and attitudes have liberalized dramatically, an AP survey suggests behav- ior has yet to match the pro- vocative words. There may be lots who sing of free tove, but many more think twice before they really change their tune. For instance: pill, psychiatrists sayv doctors and coeds them- selves, is not the liberating in- centive for virgins lo their status. .Most agree that the girls who ask for contra- ceptives are already sexually experienced, and Inere seems to be little evidence that the pill causes promiscuity. rales have in- creased significantly for un- married girls. But the liberali- zation abortion laws in sev- eral states' has shown that married women, rather than the single ones, are coming in larger numbers, for hospital aborrJOM. as many girls trat live with their boy-friends, 'there are still those who woo- der if it's all rijW to on the first date. For as many boys that still keep score, i are those win wait to wait before getting that ually involved.

Dr. William, Simon and Dr. John Gagnoo, who will soon publish a survey at college students taken in 1967, report that approxi-. mately one-third of college girls were no lor.ee> virgins by their senior year. "It is a measurable, in- crease, but not a dramatic one, and certainly not as high as it could says Dr. Simon.

SEE SICKNESS The young today are never- theless often critical of those who have overt, indiscrimi- nate sex, but they see it as a sickness, rather than "unmc- raT behavior. At several universities, men ertoaaed what they ailed the Playboy woman as sex object rather thaa rXpecting her as a loved person. There are varieties of co-ed living arrancements.on more than 200 campuses today.' There are alternating co-ed suites, as it Stanford and the, University, of Buffalo; sepa- rate wings or-separate floors with common 1 o u n g e s, as found at. the University of MinnesoU. And even. co-ed trailers at the University of Maryland.

POSSIBU WAY TO CONTKX Oil SUCK A mUiure of treated sand and water sprayed on water covered with an oil slick off Holland from specially built dredger during test method to control oil slicks on water. The method, devised by an oil company and reportedly sue- eessful during this experiment, is based on idea of chemically treated sand, with particles of oil adhering to it, sinking to the bottom, thus clearing the water's sur- face of the oil slick. The mixture is sprayed from boomt extending from the boat's midships. Mechanization May Take Over WASHINGTON (AP) -Agri- culture department experts tee a rapid switch to mechanization for some fruit and vegetable crops in ihe United States dur- ing the next five years, mainly because of rising costs for hand labor. The transition has occurred gradually during the last 20 years, the department says, but TH-essure is' increasing. Both labor and machinery cost more, but since 1930 labor rates have risen about 50 per cent faster haa mechanization costs. "If this sort of relationship xrsists to officials said Swales To Carry Tory Banner CALGARY (CP George Swales, 54, nominated U> contest the Mountain View con- stituency fcr Progressive Conservatives in the next pro- vincial election. m a report, "harvesting ma- chinery too expensive in terms of today's labor costs may well jecome relatively cheap tomor- row." Thus five years from now about three-fourths of the'coun- try's vegetable crop probably will be machine-harvested com- pared with about half today, the report said. Nearly all the country's snap beans, peas, carrots and pota- toes along with much of the to- matoes, lettuce, cucumbers and onions will be mechanically har- vested by 1975. Only two per cent ot the fruit and nuts now' are being mechan- ically harvested, the report said. But by 1975 the proportion is expected to rise to 17 per cent, GARDEN PROVINCE Prince Edward Island, Can- ada's smallest province, is situ- ated m Ihe Gulf of St. Lawrence and is often called The Garden' of Ihe Gulf.
