ILLEGAL ABORTION ... disease of society
An international conference tackles an explosive problem involving more than 1 million women each year. by Isadore Rubin, B.A., M.S. in Ed. ILLEGAL abortion in the United States is a "disease of society" affecting possibly as many as 1,200,000 women a year. It presents a problem "as real and urgent as did venereal disease three decades ago." These major conclusions were offered by thirty-eight of the nation's foremost experts after an international conference on abortion, sponsored by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The conference report has been published recently in book form.
by H. W. Secor Among the most difficult types of disputes handled by courts of law are those seeking to determine the real father of a child. IN 1945, a California jury decided that Charles Chaplin was the father of Carol Ann, daughter of Joan Barry. The jury's decision cost the famous comedian over $100,000 for attorney's fees and a sizable sum each month for the support of the girl until she reached the age of 21. "The irony of it all," says genetics counselor Sheldon C. Reed, "is that Chaplin is not her father. ... By the laws of heredity he is excluded as a possible father." This trial was one of the most famous of the cases known as "disputed paternity cases." They are among the most difficult types of disputes which are handled by our courts of law.
DR. KIRKENDALL is Professor of Family Life Education at Oregon State College. Author of "Sex Education as Human Relations" and many other writings, he is recognized as one of the outstanding authorities in the field of sex education. This article is the first in a series which Dr. Kirkendall will write from time to time on sex worries and concerns of adolescent boys. The information was obtained through a combination research - counseling procedure which Dr. Kirkendall has used for a number of years. He developed a check list of worries and concerns which he has since given to hundreds of individual boys whom he has met in high school and college classes. After each boy has marked the check list, Dr. Kirkendall has discussed the indicated worries or concerns with the boy. Thus the information and illustrations in the article come from dealing at firsthand with the problems of adolescent boys. Dr. Kirkendall received financial support for his study from the E. C. Brown Trust. —The Editors

Is it possible to combine desire for variety in sexual relations with the maintenance of a stable, happy marriage? by Edward Dengrove, M.D. FROM time to time one reads in the newspapers reports of cases such as that of the Percy Radfords and the George Hauses, of St. Louis, Missouri. These two couples, after a friendship of four months, decided they'd be happier married to each other's partners. At the time the swap was made, one couple had been wed for some seventeen years, and the other for almost five. Accomplished as it was, through divorce and remarriage, this trade of spouses had legal sanction, as well as the attention of the press. But there is a lot more such swapping than the newspapers ever discover, because most of it exists on a sporadic basis and does not end in divorce and the remarriage of the alternate couples.
