Middle Age Probed
Through `Mini-Lectures'

Staff Report

When Marilyn Rowens of
Livonia criticizes the human
condition, she does it with a
sense of humor.
She has just published her
fourth booklet of cartoons and
mini-lectures, entitled Be-
yond the Middle Years, at
which she takes a semi-comic
look at life during middle
age.
Peppered with her self-
drawn, stick figure cartoons,
the booklet is mildly
philosophical, somewhat cyn-
ical and oftentimes provides
its reader with some "Oh,
yes, I've been in that predi-
cament" feelings.
Among her comments are
these examples: "I know
there are things in life that
are inevitable: frustration,
disappointment, loneliness,
even death, but laundry?"; "I
had my whole life planned. I
knew exactly what I was
going to do. I had every de-
tail outlined, but I lost my
notes." "If life is a game.
When it's over, how will I
know if I've won?"

A volunteer at the Jewish
Home for Aged and Jewish
Federation Apts. for many
years, Mrs. Rowens published
her booklet, the fourth of a
series, "because I love them
(the cartoons) and want to
share them." She says of her
cartoon books, "I create
where I am in life."
She said another purpose
in publishing the cartoons is
to show that "beyond the
middle years is a very excit-
ing time of our lives."
Mrs. Rowens often uses the
books in the motivational
talks she gives to community
groups. "They touch people of
all ages," she said.

Syria Now
Armed With
Nerve Gas

London (JTA) — The Sun-
day Thlegraph reported last

Sunday that Libya has given
Syria deadly nerve gas
weapons, traceable to the
Soviet Union, which could be
used with devastating effect
on Israel's main cities.
The report, by the news-
paper's defense correspon-
dent, cited Western in-
telligence sources for the in-
formation. According to the
writer, the Syrians can use
the nerve gas warheads on
their Soviet-made SCUD
missiles.
The chemical warheads
could kill everyone within a
25 mile radius and render a ci-
ty uninhabitable for about 24
hours after the attack, the
Telegraph said. The SCUD is
a vehicle-launched surface-to-
surface missile with a range
of more than 160 miles. Until
now, SCUDs in the arsenals
of Libya, Syria and Iran were
thought to be armed with
conventional warheads in
contrast to the Soviet weap-
ons which are nuclear-armed.
According to the Thlegraph,
