Duncan warned against over-

The supposedly ideal two-child N
family is actually an average,
not an ideal, Duncan explained.
Two children per woman is a
theoretical estimate for replace-
ment level. However, not all
women want or are able to have
children.
If the ideal replacement level
is calculated according to moth-
ers instead of women, the aver-
age mother should have approxi-
mately 2%6 children. Therefore,
the two-child family would re-

The element of variance in "
family size is not usually con-
sidered, Duncan pointed out. It
is possible to maintain a re-

family sizes. Variance is desir-
able from a human perspective,
in terms of individuality, he
contended. Also, variance is very
important genetically to the
human species.

terday that it had ordered more
B52 bombers to fortify the In-
dochina air war.
Sources reported about 12
B52s have been ordered to
Guam and another 40 to 50
were on alert within the United
States.
The new reinforcements will
bring the number of B52s com-
mitted to the Air War to 152,
about 50 per cent more than
took part in the bombing in the
1965-68 phase.
Overall, the additional B52s
would raise to 1,000 the num-
ber of U. S. bombers and fight-
er bombers in Southeast Asia -
about 200 short of the peak to-
tal.
Top Pentagon spokesman
Brig. Gen. Daniel James said
until the Communists accept
President Nixon's "generous
peace proposal, we of course
will carry out our responsibili-
ties to implement the Presi-
dent's policy which is to deny as
much as possible the capabili-
ties of the enemy to wage the
war."
Jerry Friedheim, another
Pentagon spokesman said
Tuesday that U.S. bombers will
strike power plants and fac-
tories which are assumed to
contribute to the anti-Saigon
war effort.
Air Force officers said the
new round of bombings, which
have escalated steeply over the
past couple of weeks, will be
aimed at some military targets
which were exempt from bomb-
ing in the 1965-1968 period be-
cause the weapons then in use
were not accurate enough to
spare civilians.
-Since the start of the North
Vietnamese offensive March 30,
at least 97 U.S. aircraft, includ-
ing 42 helicopters, have been
reported lost to all causes in
Indochina.
The Saigon command report-
ed heavy fighting on the south-
ern front about three miles
southwest of An Loc, 60 miles
north of the capital.

tormented by her craving for and loathing of men! Her fears and erotic fantasies drive her beyond
the edge of sanity.
