Another organization which has been active lately is the Math Club or, aa its members are more commonly called, the Radicals. They plan to earn money for pur- chasing a small analog computer by sponsoring a guessing contest. WINNER, AA TRAFFIC SAFETY PO5TER CONTEST Those who wish to guess the num- I bet: of beans in a jaz' may estimate the number for 5c a guess. A stuf- fed animal will be awarded to the person submitting the most accu- rate guess. Recently Dexter Edge, a chem- ical engineer at Rayonier, visited a meeting of the Math Club and presented an informabive talk on computers. Another project plan- ned by the Radicals is a trip to the McChord, Air Force Base to see the Sedge Command. which con- trols the air defense of the North- west. THE BOYS ARE preparing to display their talent in a show which they are required to put on for the girls as a penalty for being the losers in the annual T.B. Drive contest. The Girls' Club challenged the Boys' Club to collect more con- tributions than they and won. The results of the contest were known last February and the girls have been waiting patiently since that time. April 23 is the date set for the talent show. Rehearsals for the sophomore play "My Three Angels", have been underway for several weeks. The play, which will be presented May 6 and 7, is under the direction of Dean Tarrach assisted by stud- ent director, Terri Turner. The cast consists of Gary Hughes, Reta Carte, Jill Jeffery, Susan Ogden, Ralph Robinson, Foster OZT, David Miltenberger, Bill Surratt, Jack Bryant and Terry Carpenter. Tickets to the play can be purcha- sed from members of the sopho- more class. Birth, Death Ratios In County Told The ratio of births to deaths was 2.5 to 1. The official tabulation shows a total of 3.533 births locally during the period as against 1.393 deaths. Not included in these figures are births and deaths of non-residents that occurred wiLhin the county. The report, issued by tte De- partment of Commerce is based on data compiled by t he U. S. Pub- lic Health Service. DESPITE TIlE FACT that there has been a decline in the birth rate in recent years in most of the nation, the rate in Mason County has remained relatively high. The annual average locally, over the 10-year period, was 22.6 births per 1,000 population. For a number of years after World War 2. there was a rapid increase in the number of births in the United States. Larger faro- flies were the thing. More recently, there has been a change in atttitude. It appears that many couples have decided to have smaller families than they had originally planned. Various factors and influences had a part In that decision, a'ceord- ing to sociologists who have com- mented on it. ONE OF THESE 1S the high cost of sending children to college. The financial burden involved in making such pzvisions for more than one o,' two children has led to second thoughts in a large number of families. Other influencing factors include the growth of unemployment in recent years and the fear that East-West tefisions might lead to WaP. HARY H.
