He also said that some of Ihe resolutions must be caret u 11 y worded or members of (lie na- tional associations could end up in jail. In many countries, including some Latin American countries, abortion is unlawful and support of a resolution would damage the relationship of the associa- tion, which now is supported for its family-planning programs. However, one resolution rcc- ommofided that member asso- ciations should do r.ll in their power to influence governments Lo begin education pro- grams.

Dr. R. Gonzalez Cervutli of Caracas described a Venezuelan program whereby a woman is provided with birth-control in- formation immediately after ihc has had a baby or an abor- tion. Tliis is the most effective way jof reaching the "high risk" proup of women who are in their child-bearing years and uho are in an "accepting frame of mind."

Just Jude By JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer iMiili il 11! i iV ili in ililii ii hh ni i ilit it 1 Emily Post, eat your heart out. You've been re- placed and high time loo. The latest book of etiquette is here, ami worth the reading time. It's fjrcat, it's fun, and best of all, the thing is practical. Put out by the female equivalent ol Playboy, Cosmopolitan, this hook of etiquctle sets the rules sti'aigiil Tur iuufiy's girl, in today's world playing by today's standards. It excludes the dos and don'ts of how to enter- lain the king and queen of Persia, can't be bothered with the proper color of bikini to at high title in late August in the Adriatic, and frowns on dilemmas ol 'coming out' affairs. But what it does tell (he and liberated girl is how to buy suitable clothes after taking a truth- ful look at her figure, where to go for an inexpensive date, and even how to fend off the town romeo with- out playing the heavy and mining all future dating possibilities. Other lillle goodies for Ihe new morality trip in- clude suggestions on appropriate methods for setting up unwed housekeeping with your male buddy, how to explain the arrival of your un-churched baby to prudish Aunt Bess, and what to do ahout invitations when a cohabitation arrangement is about to turn into a wedding, or sour. One chapter is dedicated to Ihe yes and no of registering in a motel if Mr. and Mrs. is not yet your official title. Information tidbits are provided on how to make husband or boyfriend happier in all aspects of your relationship, what to pick as a really surprising gift, and how to act when you are with, or without, him. Advice is given for having happiness spread on the other side of the fence as well. Hints for the pacification of belligerent mothers-in-law or finicky mothers who can't believe their boy could fall for you, or miserable spinster Aunt Harriet, arc all part of it. Problems of the office-love is dealt with, too. How to cope with the wolf down the way, who you should date, as well as how to keep the office romance out of Ihe office and on an after-work basis are all ex- plained. It's all there, and more. Everything that a girl would want to know. All the pointers that dear old Emily never thought would concern the debutante in her day. Of course, with all of this necessary and import- ant information being added to the run-of-the-mill eliquette book, many other items have been left out. But, Emily just may have a few customers still floating around. Those who insist on serving lobster with just the right sauces, who want lo know Ihe exact intricacies of chomping fried chicken, and the many who are devastated by planning weddings of more than guests, can all turn to her. There is a small place reserved for the old- fashioned and outdated book of etiquette. The problem is, only the hardiest of perennials can breach the memory gap to recall where that place is, Car care course cuts repair costs TAMPA, Fla, (Reuter) Three years ago, Hillsborongh community college here started an eight-week course in car care for women. Sur- prisingly, the classes have been so popular that more than 200 women have taken the eight week course. This is no powder-puff course. The women wear overalls and meet at tte Humble Oil Company training centre which is used during daytime hours to train owners and managers of Humble Oil service stations throughout the southeastern United States. Here the men other than Nick Lawasaka. the instructor, are learn about car operations, cost of repairs, how to cut excessive bills. Lawasaka, a former em- ployee of General Motors, said he became inleresled in teaching such a course v.hen he realized how little his wife knew about the car she was driving. "Of course, women are un- A gi'andmother exclaimed: "I just changed my fan belt, he said. "Nobody bothers lo tell them anything about Iheir car. Yet SO per cent of car repairs could bo cut down by preventive main- tenance. This should be taught along with driver's education to our leen-aged drivers." WHAT'S BENEATH COUNTS Lawasaka slressed that "what's underneath is impor- tant." His students spend a lot of time looking up at a car raised on the grease rack so he can point out disc brakes, ball joints and so on. "What you don't he tells his students, "can cost you money or even your life." Many of the women stu- dents admitted the first reac- tion to the course was laugh- ter. "I got a lot of kidding at said a young store cashier. "Then when I told my husband about a minor re- pair we needed and saved a big bill his laughter changed to respect." Was I delighted! I've driven for 2-1 years and didn't even know my car had a fan belt."
