Opinions on the whys and wherefores are many and va- ried, but most manufacturers blame the birth control pill for those additional indies. rough surfaces and can also be easily removed. The best fabrics for wall use are medium weight materi- als like cottons, burlap, felt or linens. Application is usu- ally by staples or glue, and while staples are easier lo remove, there is some pro- fessional feeling that glue docs a better looking job. Wallpaper glue is the one that's generally used, but be- fore you start drowning the living room in a mess of sticky goo, take time out to experiment with your mater- ial and find out just how much adhesive is needed. Too much glue could soak into the fabric and stain it. Look Ma, no brakes! A truly liberated woman, 10-year-old Tracey Hembroff, knows how to improvise.

The telephone survey of reading habits may be part of it. So may the nice young col- lege student who asks you to sign something so he can col- lect points for calling at your door. The colorful contest entry form may be another approach. The point of alt of these and other gimmicks is to sell something. A. R. Walker says the per- son taken in by them will probably get Ihe magazines or merchandise he pays for. He will probably get the "free" gift offered as bait. There is a chance he won't, if the firm goes out of business. But Mr. Walker objects to these sales approaches as unethical be- cause they do not make clear to a potential buyer that he is being asked to sign a contract NEW!

He fold 88 teen-aged student, gathered for a two-day semina on sex, sponsored by Planne Parenthood of Toronto, tha laws protecting women froi sexual relations in certain ag categories carry the qualifyin clause that the woman must b of chaste character. In theory, the ]aw seems I punish the man, he said. A ma can be charged for having E ual intercourse with a employee under 21, who is un der his supervision, or a fema under IB even though he ma think she is older. But he can defend himself saying the young woman wa not chaste or showed a di position to lewdness or that was chiefly to blame for th act. He ashed whether the law realistic in the high value places on chastity. "Should consent, at least f a woman 16 or over, not SUGGESTS NEW VIEW The laws reflect a socie compelled to restrict sexual a tivity, he said, but with mode contraception "perhaps should take a different vie of sex." Mr. Gershman also qucstio ed the attitude of the law abo women who become prcgnar "The law seems perfectly w ing lo pregnancy up a woman as punishment I her sexual act when it rcslric her right to an abortion." The conference, called Sex to Z, was open to every hi school student in Metro." Sixty- five girls and 23 boys attended and some of their questions re- flected their lack of knowledge. One girl asked Mr. Gershman I what chastity meant. o buy. He may be talked into uying something he doesn't eally want or is unable to af- ord. He may well pay more lan he would pay if he ought directly from a pub- .sher or a conventional store. Mr. Walker is registrar of he Consumer Protection Bu- eau of Ontario. He says there are many easons you might be the tar- get for a sales pitch. I! you nter a lucky draw, your lame might go on a list used or selling. If your area is cheduled, you might be one f n house-to-house blitz. You might be the random choice f a boiler room operation. "There are several card ables with a telephone on each, and a dulcet-voiced lady who has a list of telephone numbers in front of her. She may begin with an exchange, say 235, then start at 2000 and call every number. The girl next to her has 235 and 2100. That way, even a person who as an unlisted number would still get called." A telephone pitch begins with the caller's name and may claim to be part of a sur- vey, and may offer a prize. "This is Miss Jones calling from the marketing office. We are calling approximately people at random to de- termine the reading habits of the adult population." Eventually, the listener will be told he will receive a "free" book and 60 issues of magazines for which he will pay only 59 cents a week. The pilch at the door may involve ticking off favorite reading to help a youth through college. In either case, the initial call is followed as soon as possible by a visit from a hard-sell expert to give you your prize and get your signa- ture on a contract. MAY BE COSTLY Mr. Walker says a contract to buy some magazines may sound harmless, but it often turns out to be worth to be paid in two years for mag- azines that will come in for five years. The sales visit may be fol- lowed by a verification call to confirm that you have signed and are gcod for the money. "Under the consumer prot- ection act, the company isn't obliged to cancel a contract unlass notified by registered letter or a hand-delivered let- ter in a given time. In Ontario it is two clear working days. The time varies in other prov- inces. "If you want a magazine subscription, order directly from the publisher, not from an agency.
