YD levels possibly ebbing

NEW YORK (R) - The nation-
wide outbreak of venereal disease
may be ebbing for the first time
in a decade, according to prelimi-
nary statistics being compiled by
public health officials.
The number of reported cases of
infectious syphilis shows a 2 per

cent decline in the first seven
months of the 1974 fiscal year,,
compared to the same period thej
preceeding year, according to pro-
visional data at the Center for
Disease Control in Atlanta, Ga.
FOR GONORRHEA, by far the
most widespread of the venereal
diseases, the rate of increase for
July-December of 1973 appears to
be less than 1 per cent, "a striking
change" from the past, a statisti-
cian at the center said yesterday.
The fact that men commonly
have symptoms of gonorrhea and
women often do not means that
men appear voluntarily for treat-
ment. Accordingly, the statistics
for men are considered to be an
accurate reflection of the amount
of the disease in general.
. The 1 per cent rise for July-
December compares, for example,
with a 10.2 per cent rise in gonor-
rhea in men in fiscal 1972, com-
pared to 1971, the center statisti-
cian said. The center is a branch
of the U. S. Public Health Service.
THE CENTER SOURCE said the
apparent inroads into VD appears
i jffh

to be the result of a nationwide
campaign against the disease that
began in July 1972, and which in-
cludes public education and screen-
ing of women.
Despite these apparent inroads,
VD continues to be a major pub-
lic health problem in this coun-
try, the American Public Health
Association said in a report also
issued yesterday.
The association said final fig-
ures for fiscal 1973 showed 809,-
681 new reported cases of gonor-
rhea, a 12.7 per cent rise from
the preceeding year. The 25,080
newly reported cases of syphilis
represent a 4.5 per cent increase,
it said.
Because many cases of VD are
not reported, the U. S. Public
Health Service estimates that the
actual figures are much higher-
at least 2.5 million new cases of
gonorrhea and 85,000 to 90,000 new
cases of syphilis.
A list of cities with the highest
gonorrhea rates, which may also
be a reflection of better reporting
systems, shows these are the top
10: Atlanta; Washington, D. C.;
Charlotte, N.C.; Memphis, Tenn.;
San Francisco; Rochester, N.Y.;
Newark, N.J.; Richmond, Va.;
Portland, Ore. ; New Orleans, La.

A career in law-

W i
without lwschool.
What can you do with only a bachelor's degree?
Now there is a way to bridge the gap between an
undergraduate education and a challenging, responsible
career. The Lawyer's Assistant is able to do work traditionally
done by lawyers.
Three months of intensive training can give you the
skills-the courses are taught by lawyers. You choose one of
the six courses offered-choose the city in which you wont
to work.
Since 1970, The Institute for Paralegal Training has
placed more than 500 graduates in law firms, banks, and
corporations in over 40 cities.
If you are a student of high academic standing and
are interested in a career as a Lawyer's Assistant we'd like
to meet you.
Contact your placement office for an interview with
our representative.
