Lack of Information, Job Objectives, Confidence
Offered as Reasons for Unmarried Motherhood

Most likely candidates for un-
wed motherhood are girls who lack
adequate sex information, have no
clear-cut job goals, and tend to
feel themselves incompetent and
unrewarded, a pair of University
researchers report.
Jean W. Butman and Jane A.
Kamm of the University's Insti-
tute for Social Research in a
study of students in four different
high school districts found that
lack of information does not nec-
essarily prevent premarital sexual
behavior, but may in fact con-
tribute to it.
They recommend thorough mar-
riage training and sex education
courses for high school students,
in addition to courses in child de-
velopment and' human psychology
-subjects not usually included in
high school curriculums.
Their report on "The Social,
Psychological, and Behavioral
World of the Teen-Age Girl" con-
cludes that: "Girls who leave
school are oriented to marriage as
an immediate goal, are alienated
from the reward system, and in-
active in the various socializing
activities of the school. Not only

is the potential drop-out, wheth-
er for reasons of pregnancy or
not, doing poorly academically, she
is also likely to see little relevance
between the school-its offerings
or its demands-and her own fu-
Little Education
"We find that girls whose moth-
ers have low educational attain-I
ment and who have established
disfunctional relationships with
them in terms of identification and
acceptance of control are more
likely to get into trouble."
The researchers point out that
there is an almost universal as-
sumption in our culture that all
girls will get married, and should.
Vocational opportunities - either
real or imagined--tend to be more
limited for girls.
"In the absence of clear-cut and
definite goals of getting a job, go-
ing to college, or developing some
occupational identity outside of
(or at least prior to) marriage, we
would expect girls to be more
prone to seeing themselves as
ready for marriage and desiring
to marry as soon as possible," the
University investigators explain.

"This orientation to marriage as
an immediate goal can lead the
girl into mate-seeking activitiesI
while still in her teens, and mayl
play an important part in her
susceptibility to engaging pre-ma-a
turely in adult sexual behavior." 7
The "male-oriented, achieve-{
ment-bound" system of the school
can be coped with by most girls
but, the Michigan researchers re-
port, "we find consisently about
20 per cent of the non-sexually
involved, non-drop-out high school
girl population reporting patterns
much like those of girls who leave
school. More support at home
along with lack of involvement
in a relationship with a boy which
could offer escape are probably1
the major factors preventing these
girls from also leaving school.
"All of these girls, potential
drop - outs, potentially illicitly
pregnant girls, and girls who en-
gage prematurely in adult sexual
behavior, are likely to have re-
jected the female model presented
by their mothers, and to be re-
jecting of control by either par-
Researchers Butman and Kamm

say their study results imply that:
-Acceptance of and training for
marriage as a legitimate and im-
portant "vocational" role, espe-
cially for girls, whether now or
in the future, should be an im-
portant aspect of the high school
educational system.
-Courses in child development,
training in human relations, and
human psychology should be mov-
ed out of the college and into the
early years of high school if they

are to benefit the girls most in
need of help in these areas.
-Sound sex education, accom-
panied by open and honest dis-
cussions of male-female relation-
ships, emotions, and consequences
should be available and even man-
datory for girls especially.
-The formal educational sys-
tem should be made explicitly rele-
vant to the role of the girl as
wife and mother, especially for
the marriage-oriented girl.

scape, are deeper and richer in
color. Infrequently, the artist uses
an area of bright orange or red..
There is a distinct emphasis on
horizontals in Peterdi's works. In
many etchings, he divides his
picture space up into several hori-
zontal levels. His shapes, which
seem to be on top of these hori-
zontal bands, usually cut through
one or more of them. The hori-
zontals, together with the soft
colors of Peterdi's backgrounds,

give to the prints a feeling of
stability and repose.
Contrasting with this feeling
and complementing it is the ten-
sion between Peterdi's shapes, and
the balance which results from the
tension. The relationship of each
shape to other shapes in each
print gives the impression of being
carefully and sensitively thought
out. A balance of dynamism and
stability is the result. The prints
are very satisfying because of

Join in the most adventurous experiment of our time. Opera-
tion Match. Let the IBM 7090 Computer (the world's most perfect
matchmaker) stamp out blind dates for you.
Two Harvard juniors started it. 100,000 students have done it.
Now you and 3,400,000 college students in 1500 colleges in 50
cities can sign up and join in!
Just send us the coupon. We'll send you the Operation Match
Quantitative Personality Projection Test pronto!
Then return the questionnaire with $3.00. What you're like
and what you like will be translated into our 7090's memory file.
It will scan the qualifications of every member of the opposite sex
from this geographic area. Then it will select the five or more
matches best for you.
You'll receive your names, addresses and telephone numbers
'within three weeks. You'll be what your date is looking for. Your
date will be what you are looking for. In other words: the matches
will be mutual.
Dear IBM 7090,
I am 17 or over (and 27 or under) and I want to help stamp :
out blind dates. So mail me my questionnaire. Quick! "
