For most of last summer, the young Iransient knocked about the downtown Yonge Street strip, aji area of burlesque bouses, cheap movie houses and clothing toutiques. Homeless, she wandered up and dora the street scared, "in case the cops thought I was a hooker."

Now, the girl who was afraic she would be mistaken for a prostitute shares with other transient girls a house run by the Young Women's Christian Association. STOP 158, so-called because it is located at 158 Spadina Road was opened recently to provide an alternative to accommoda- tion supplied by welfare agen- cies. Carol Irwin, a professional counsellor for the YWCA, says that in the past "girls went to welfare agencies and got room in one of the crummiest boarding houses in town." She says there is a need for "a place that has a home-like atmosphere" so transient girls can "stay and put themselves together." The hostel, in the middle of an area of huge Victorian nouses that have been broken into small offices and tiny flats, is furnished with deep easy chairs, a sofa, a hanging basket chair and a large oval braided njg. House director Pat Lang sits at a desk in the living room answering telephone calls from girls who need a home. The hostel comfortably ac- commodates 12 girls, says Mrs. Lang, and there always is room for one more. They pay 75 cents a night If they have the money, and lodge free if they are penniless. For those who are on lie move, the maximum, residence period is three days. Others can stay for up to eight weeks. The project is financed by To- ronto's welfare department, but is operated like a co-operative residence. Its occupants share cleaning and cooking duties and decide on any changes in house rules dur- ing group meetings.

By KENNETH L. WHITING SUARPEVILLE, South Africa (AP) An unusually effective birth-control project is under way in this dusty town whose name is linked with the crush- ing of black political protest. Sharpeville entered the his- tory books March when 69 blacks were shot to death and scores wounded as they massed at the police station to demonstrate against laws re- quiring people to carry identity passes. The "Sharpeville massacre" became a rallying cry against apartheid and a symbol.of the black man's distrust of whites. Because of this, analysts are amazed that family planning has been accepted. In much of Africa resistance is widespread and deeply ingrained. Some black men feel that the use of contraceptives would lead to promiscuity by wives. Others regard a large family as a status symbol in a tribal com- munity. Dr. Henry Bernstein, white medical officer of health at Ver- eenigine, an industrial city, is the driving force behind the family-planning clinic begun in J964 for nearby Sharpeville's population of The birth rate In the black township has decreased in the last six years to between 15 to 21 per population. It is more than 40 per in South Africa as a whole. "For years I had been upset by the sight of hundreds of mothers coming into our ante- natal clinic each with a new- born toddler in her arms and two or three others TTiti TB or gastroenteritis around her skirls, and knowing that she ivould be back again that year with another Bernstein says. Birth-control pills are sup- plied free at the clinic near Uie police station. About black women between 15 and 45 are regular visitors. A key factor was Bernstein's ability to win the trust d blacks. His staff does not hesi- tate to treat people who live in Sharpeville illegally in terms of apartheid "influx control" laws. Bernstein is assisted by black nurses. He does not believe that birth control alone can maintain the world population at 1 desir- able level: "It has a definite place in curbing the population explosion but the improvement of so- cio-economic conditions is of the utmost importance. The less money you have, the more chil- dren you usually have." THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "There's a woman here to see Harrier Parker.
