THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Oh, knew the answer, but I'm afraid we can't accept the jackpot husband is terribly upset about the income tax lie has to pay now." By HAM SUNOAR CP Correspondent BOMBAY (CP) A quiet but significant revolution is taking place in India's educa- tional system. More and more girls are joining co-educational schools, particularly in the cities. Re- ports reaching the govern- ment suggest that even in vil- lages mixed schools are be- coming popular. A survey published in a Bombay newspaper suggests that even parents now want their daughters to study in co-educational institutions. The Bombay Times quoted a government official as saying that this is creating a problem for schools which have so far given preference to male stu- dents in admissions. "Every additional girl on a co-educational school's rolls means the denial of admission to a deserving male the official said. But he ad- mitted that this is a welcome development on the Indian so- cial front. Until recently, most Bom- bay parents preferred to send their daughters to exclusively girls' schools. Often, this was done against the wishes of their daughters. In July, 1970, a Marathi-language n e w s- paper reported the case of a city girl who ran away from her home because her parents insisted on her going to a girls' school.. She returned home after two days when her father informed her through a newspaper advertisement that he would respect her wishes. The principal ol s mixed liiEber secondary school in central Bombay said that he has received 300 applications from girls this year as against only BO last year. Another school has had to turn away scores of boys in order to accommodate girl applicants. This has created soir.c resentment among the boys and their parents. But on the whole boys seem to welcome (lie development. As one of them said: "School life will be less dull hence- forth with so many girls around, though in most co-ed- ucational schools boys and girls keep away from each other." Co-education is becoming popular even in a conserva- tive city like Madras in south India, officials of the federal education ministrv said. In India's villages, separate schools are still the order of the day. But even there the si- lent revolution is making it- self felt. In Rajasthan state in cen- tral India where many women still wear silken veils, girls have begun joining co-educa- tional village schools. _____ At least Rajasthan vil- lages now have only mixed schools. The boys and girls sit on separate girls usually in the front they have also separate play- grounds. But, as one headmaster pointed out. the children now are not only happier but. even study better. "The boys want to do better than the he said. "And the girls want to be on top. The future is for co-educa- lie said. Ann Landers making that long walk up the aisle. DEAR ANN LANDERS: On occasion you have printed letters trom young girls who want to know if it's advisable to marry middle-aged or older ;ncn. When you respond I wonder if you arc aware that there are 4'z single girts 30 years of age (and older) tor every eligible male in the same age group. Surely you know. Ann, that some men are worn out at 40 and others are extremely virile at 60.

But I still say a dead bat- tery can be recharged. And it's easier lo recharge it if it hasn't been lying around too long. DEAR ANN LANDERS: A word please, to the mother who was heartsick because daughter had started her letter, "Dead Mother and Dad." Poor Mom thought the girl wished her dead. I love my niece and her husband very much. I once closed a letter to her with this: "Say hell to your husband."
