For early pregnancy, I know of no substitute for an exam- ination, usually a laboratory lest, to determine whether not you are pregnant. For such an important question, it seems like a reasonable course of ac- tion. It miglil be well lo stress, however, that activities that lead to (lie male having an orgasm at the vaginal opening can result in rare cases in preg- nancy. Some think, despite such activities, a girl is still a virgin unless the hymen mem- brane is ruptured. This de- pends on your definition of a virgin.

In addition, Dr. Jerome Sherman, a University of Ar- kansas anatomist, told report- ers that recently described freezing of human cadavers, in a so-called immortality quest, has made absolutely no contribution to science. Sherman said that during the last four years, .13 bodies of persons who had died of cancer have been frozen in liquid nitrogen in experiments being conducted by an organi- zation caJJed the Cryonics So- ciety. He told a neus conference that the society has 2.300 members in the United States, most of them in New York, Michigan and the District of Columbia. And he said the so- ciety has this concept; These bodies might be kept preserved in the frozen stale until a sure-fire cure for can- cer might come along. Then, the concept goes, the bodies would be Iba ived out and cured of their cancer. Sherman talked to reporters during the annual meeting of the Society of Cryobiology, a professional organization de- voted to promoting research on the effects of low tempera- ture on living cells and tis- sues. Sherman, one of the world pioneers in freezc-preserving human sperm for later use in producing babies, indicated also he has reservations about current trends to set up com- mpL'cial sperm banks, some of which already are in opera- tion.

He drew the last trump with the queen of hearts and led the jack of diamonds for the setting trick. Even after South fails lo play spades from his hand, he can still recover by getting oul of dummy with a heart instead of a spade.

Adopt idea oi domed stadium TORONTO i'CP) Adoption i of the concept of a publicly-built and operated domed stadium that would also serve as a na- tional athletic centre was called for by Ihc Metropolitan Toronto j these channels become clogged, deltas. Hence, it seems logical to look for some basic reason in the nature of things. The hows and whys that govern the formation of deltas arc in the natural behavior of earth and water. When a mighty river meets the mightier ocean, we can ex- pect great things lo happen. The force of the rolling current suddenly collides with a more forceful wall of resisting water. The river's energy is pressure from its volume of streaming water plus the speed it gained from flowing down-slope. Its moving waters dissolved and eroded minerals in its path and its energy swept them along to the tea. The force of a great river is enormous and when it reaches its rendezvous with the sea i carries with it countless tons o. earthy solids Fine fragments oi clays are suspended in the water. Gritty gravels, sands and heavier pebbles are swepl along nosror the stream bed. All these earthy fragments are pushed along by the energy oi the rolling river. Then suddenly the river con- fronts the stronger resistance of the oeean. The out-going tides and the gentle slope of the submerged continental shelf work to pvll the river current out lo sea. But the resisting ivall of ocean water outranks them. It forces the river to slow down and lose some of its energy. It can no longer carry its load of earthy materials and they sink to the bottom. Salty chemicals in the sea water tend to coagulate the finer suspend- ed fragments and these heav- ier particles speed up Hie sink- ing process. Gradually the deposits clog the mouth of the river, though tidal action draws vast quan- tities out to sea. Meantime, the choked river is probed by flow- ing water from behind. The main channel is blocked, but the pushing nater cufs many smaller, shallow channels through the soggy mud. As THIS VEAR WE'RE 60INC TO STRtss PHYSICAL CONPITIONINS..
