Latest figures of the Fed- j eral Bureau of Investigation j show lhat the number of women arrested for "serious" crimes such as murder and armed robbery increased per cent from 155Q to 1871. The increase for males during that period was per cent, i Equality is still for away. While the number of women arrested for all crime.s in the United States in 1971 in- creased, twice as much as that of men, the FBI shov.- some arrests of fe- males compared with male arrests. lint the women's crime rate is rising and some authorities .see a direct Sink with women's lib. "W omen's liberation has given women freedom and re- lease which has opened a lot of formerly male occupations, including said Supcr- inLEndeul Essie Muiphy of Hik- er's Island women's jail in New York.

The number of Cemales ar- rested for homicide in 1971 rose per cent from the pre- vious year compared with n decline of one per cent for males.

The i i n erect so in bu rgl ary arrest was three times as high for j v.omen as for men. J. Miller Leavy, head of the trials department of the Los Angeles district attorney's of- fice, said: "There used lo be very strict divisions between female committed crimes such as shop lifting and male- comniUted crimes involving violence. Cut now you have women in homicide about as cold and cruel as you can think." TREND BEGAN EARLIER Percy Foreman, a noted Helton criminal lawyer, said emancipation, abolishing the double has in- vited increased participation of women in crime.

Prisoners interviewed at Rikevs Island disagreed. "A man is move emotional ihan a woman but he will likely put up a shield to hide it." said a 10-year-oUl girl, held on charges of fatally stabbing a woman during an attempted robbery. "It is usually fear that might make a waman panij kill one but with men it is just hatefuiness."

Several of the p r isoners agreed that "ttomen choose more and more to go out on crimes alone or with other women" rather Ihan take servient roles like driving getaway car for a man.

"If they eat lunch out every day, they really enjoy simple things at they don't gel in restaurants like meatballs, meat loaf, lima beans, spinach." To emphasize his love for simplicity, the man who bosses one of the top-notch kitchens in the city gave bis -interviewer his recipe for what he calls the perfect hamburger: A little oatmeal, fresh ground pepper, salt and just a touch of caisup with the meat. The oat- meal makes the patly puff a lit- tle and keeps the juice inside. "You know, the art of good cooking lies in he said. Despite his love for simplic- ity, he is a creative cook.
