Sexual
diseases
spread as'
baby boom
grows U
CHICAGO (UPI) - Assistant Health
Secretary Edward Brandt Jr. yester-
day urged doctors to' help combat
sexually transmitted diseases (STD),.
the "epidemic of the 1980s and 1990s"
which cost at least $2 billion yearly to
tteat.
Brandt urged physicians to become
m~ore aggressive about screening and
treating patients.
"THE epidemiologic features of
sexually transmitted diseases have
*changed and the number of diseases
categorized as sexually transmitted.
las climbed drastically," he said in an
Oditorial in this week's Journal of the
4merican Medical Associatin.
'The "baby boom" of the 1960s left a
'young adult boom" of the 1980s, he
said. By 1984, the U.S. population bet-
veen the ages of 18 and 29 years will
peak at about 49 million.
"Young adults in this age group ex-
perience peak rate of .STD, and the
pirojected increase in this population
can be expected to fuel the STD
e idemic throughout the next decade,"
he said.

Theater costumes to be sold

By BARBARA MISLE
You could be the hit of your
Halloween party in a black and silver
lame bikini, complete with a matching
visor, for only $5 if you visit the theater
and drama department's annual
costume sale today in the Frieze
Building.
For those who prefer a more conser-
vative Halloween costume, there are
silk and satin gowns from medieval
times to the 18th century.
Men can choose from Chinese robes
to Greek armored chest plates which
come complete with padded chests to
simulate rippling muscles you might be
lacking.
THE ARMORED suits and fake
chests are left over from this summer's
production of "Androcles and the
Lion," said Prof. Zelma Weisfeld, who
is head of costumes design for the
department. "Instead of casting good
bodies for the play, we built bodies,"
she said. The lion costume from the
play is also on sale for $50, Weisfeld ad-
ded.

Other costumes date back to plays in
the 1950s, Weisfeld said. The depar-
tment needs to get rid of them to make
room for the new costumes continually
being made in the department's
costume design shop.
Money from the sale will be used to
buy teaching equipment such as man-
nequins and material for students in the
graduate costume design program,
Weisfeld said.
THE ORIGINAL intent for dressing
up on Halloween was not for glamour,
but to protect oneself from "evil
spirits," explained Jim Coats, who has
studied Halloween's history.

All Hallows Day, on Nov. 1, was
traditionally believed to free the spirits
of dead souls to come and "spook"
unexpecting townspeople, Coats said.
Wearing a costume on All Hallow's Eve
or Halloween was insurance that no evil
demons would "get you."
Although that tradition has faded,
costumes are more popular now than
ever, according to Jessica Kaercher,
manager of Lucky Costumes on Main
Street. Gorilla suits have been the
store's main attraction this year, she
said, with the "Sexy Witch" costume a
close second.
