No Good DEAR FRIEND: Where in Ihe world did you gel Ihe ides Hint a hernia can be caused by masturbation? Self-manipula- tion is a normal part of growing up. About 09 per cent of all normal boys and BO per cent of all normal girls first become aware of ttieir sex drives by experimenting in this manner. If you are having physical discomfort in the groin I urge you to see a doctor at once. Your ignorance is appalling, son.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: Four years ago when 1 was 15 I lost my leg in an accident. It was a champion ice skater and loved to dance. Knowing I would never again excel in these areas was a real blow. In a few months, with the help of a good counsellor I managed to accept my limitations. But this is not what I'm wilting about.

(AP) The United Stales now has its lowest birth rate in his- I lory, but the population won't level off until il gets close Ui 300 million iti the next century, TI IVmecUin University export says. Dr. Norman B. a -19- year-old professor, told a drug company convention V.ere that the current slump in Ihe birth j rate is due not only to better contraception but also to women putting off pregnancy until they arc slightly older. "It sounds like manic that you (could change the population of the United States by 50 mil- Ryder said. "But it's true if you convince people to have their babies later." As a hypothetical example, he said if women started giving birth at age 30 instead of age 25, the population of MO million would eventually decline to 250 million. At present, the average age of American mothers at Ihe time of their second childbirth about compared with 24 in the Ryder said, as more j and more opportunities open for women in Ihc working world This trend, phis a sharp in- crease in use of more effective pill, sterilization and intrautcrinc de- vices has resulted in a liirlh rate of InJI per thousand in the U.S. during (lie firft four months of year. The highest birth rate recorded in the U.S. was 25.2 per thousand during the bahy hfnun period of Hascd on Ihe fertility rate, tha number of children a woman bears during fier lifetime, the United Slates is just about at a bare stabilization level of 2.11. The estimate for the fjrst quarter of 1972 is a 2.14 fertility rate. Nevertheless, because babies from tlie boom of the 1950s now are approaching maturity, the birth rate will swing up again and the American population probably will increase to 220 million by the end of the decada and 2C2 million hy Ihe end of century, Ryder said. By the year 2040, it should level off at million, he said. The main consequence of liiia will be an older population.
