Coleman wrote himself a ticket for passing a stopped school bus four days ago and delivered it to his superiors.

NEW YORK (AP) A thief broke into a Staten Island dentists office Wednes- day night and stole a tank of "laughing gas" worth and potentially dangerous. Dr. Gilbert Wolfenson said the thief probably took the tank because he wanted to inhale the gas "for fun.' But if the gas, nitrous oxide, is inhaled without first mixing it with oxygen, he said, it can be fatal. MAYBROOK, N.Y. (AP) A Maybrook merchant whose father was robbed more than 10 years ago says he has re- ceived a cheque from one of the robbers. The cheque, from a north- ern New Jersey man, covered the stolen, plus interest, said Joseph Hill. The unidentified culprit was a youth when he and some friends took money from the cash register of Hill's General Store while owner John Hill had his back turned, the younger Hill said. The elder Hill died last year. Joseph Hill said a letter ac- companying the cheque said the New Jersey man had heard recently of the elder Hill's death and wanted to set things straight.

The chances are about even lat he or she will not be a Rus- ian, but a Ukrainian, a Geor- ian, an Uzbek, or even an Es- dmo, a member of one of the oviet Unions' myriad minority ationalities. While other countries take steps to limit their populations, he Soviet Union, with vast aipty spaces in the north and ast, and more than 700 million Chinese just across its southern xirder, is heading full speed in the opposite direction. Soviets struggle against one child family "Our policy is to struggle against i'he one-child Boris Urlanis, Soviet demogra- pher, wrote last yaar. He cited full employment, sparsely in- habited areas and unexploited natural resources. During the first 40 years of Soviet rule, peasants flocked to the industrial towns and wives went to work in factories. Now the country can no longer afford to siphon away youngsters from the collective farms to the factories, and in the towns ,ahnost every able- bodied woman already has a job. Because automation ana schemes to raise productivity are still insufficient, high indus- trial growth rates can only be maintained if the labor force continues to expand. Unhappily for the Kremlin's planners, Soviet wives have shown increasing unwillingness to have children. The birth rate plunged to 17 per thousand of population in 1969 from 25 a decade earlier. The figures picked up lightly in 1970 and 1971, but only be- cause the large post-war gener- ation was arriving at the age of parenthood. Although the decline has wor- ried the government, the Soviet birth rate still is higher than in most developed countries. The Soviet population's natu- ral growth, once deaths had been subtracted from births, was per thousand in 1971. This compared with 4.6 in Britain, 8.0 on the United States, and 3.9 in Sweden. Ger- many recorded only 1.6 per thousand and in East Germany the net growth was nil with births exactly matching deaths. The birth rate has been up to 35 per thousand in the Central Asia republics of Uzbekistan, Tadzhikistan, Turkmenistan and Kirghizia, where the population has grown three times as fast as in the Russian Federation, the biggest of the 15 Soviet re- publics. By contrast the Baltic repub- lic of Latvia had a natural growth rate of only 3.7 per thou- sand in 1971, lower than Swe- den. At the last census In 1970, Russians accounted for 129 mil- lion of the Soviet Union popu- lation of 2J1 million. A poll of 500 working women in Moscow showed that about sa per cent of them wanted only one child, around SO per cent wanted two, but only four per cent wanted three. Contraceptives are available, but are said to be cruder than then- Western equivalents. oears Save Lowest price we've seen for a full-size carpet cleaner Reg. 5Q98 See it in action!
