Ma/e Ratio Myth Dispelled AKHBAUDf (AJPA) Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics has exphided the myth of tiw single female. For several years now, II has been ramihonly believed that the reason behind the seemingly high proporiion of unmarried fenaalcs was the lack of males in the populatMm. The theory of a preponderance of females in the populatkm is borne out at social events where there Is almost Inevitably a scarcity of males.

RuMn and hU wife, Ruth, are parents of Mrs. Bobbi Asarch and Gary RuMn and have five grandchildrsn.

A ConservativeReform IVIerger? By Boris Smolar The Conservative movement bi Judaism, bom sandwiched between the rooted Orthodox and Reform denominations in the United States, has come a long way the last 30 years. It has become a major force In Jewish religious life, claiming about 3S0,000 families affUlated with iU 800 congregations. There are some 290,000 families affiliated with the Reform movement, approximately 300.000 families in Orthodox. Underscoring this was the recent 7Sth anniversary convention ol the Rabbinical Assembly, the association of Conservative rabbis which drew over aoo members to the liuurious Grosslnger Hotel. 1 remember many years ago these conventkNis were to the htxtirious Oroasbiiin'. Hotel. I

Simply suted, the mail-In registration system is designed to accommoaate those iCC members able to determine immediately from the Center brochure those activities In which they want to enroll. The system is in two parts — one for all JCC activities except elementary age Instructional swimming classes, the second for those registering their children hi those swim classes. It works like thU: — 1, Sign up any or all members of your family on the mail registration form which will come with the 197S summer brochure, scheduled to be mailed In mid-May. You can register this way for all but the atameinlary-ags in— 2, Mall the completed form, together witb all fees, to the Center. Only forms with the remittance are acceptable. — 3, The Center will process registrations the day they are received. You will be notified only if your classes are tUled or cancelled. — 4, II there's a cancellation, you will have the opportunity to either request a refund or apply your registration toward another class. The Center reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient registration, a spokesman said. He emphasized refunds will be made only If the class is cancelled for that reason — there will be no refunds made to those who withdraw from a class. Those wishing to register for the advanced beginners, intermediate and swimmers classes must have a special red swim registration permit. The regular white form Is for all other swim classes.

A remarkable devdopment In recent years has been the Incwee in numbers ol Jews behmging to both a Conaervatlve synagogue and a Refonn temple. ' Ttae con•equenf narrowing o( differences between the two denominations has increased • and has brought up the I question o< whether the tiuM ' has not cooae to negotiate a possible merger. Many Jifiorm rabbis are now A(:^h« stvporters of Israel and the Reform movement has alao given up Its opposition to a number of Jewish traditional practices and ceremonies. Some Reform rabbis have turned to Kaibnit. OB HW ottar bMd, OM

principle of Halacha authority remains large and deep, a merger between Cooaervative and Reform Judaism seems therefor unlikely in this generation. Rabbi Wolfe Kdman. chief executive officer of the Rabbinical Assembly the last 24 years, foresees the day when tlie rabbi in this country will more likely be an employe of the local community than of a particular synagogue. He urges a socialized system of pooling rabbinical salaries to be collected and allocated by a central body. He visualizes the rabbi eventually becoming a salaried employe of the local community federation structure. Such a system, he t)elieves. would serve best the rabbl-congregatonal relationahtp.

A year after he came to Israel with his family from Rumania, In 19M, and before he had yet mastered Hetirew, the iS-yMToM boy stnidi his head against a rock while diving Into the tea.

"We are one in Oes Moines," he said, "a community of brothers and sisters." In siqifiort of this idea Dr Ferman reviewed Uie spirit of cooperation that has prevailed among the agencies and other Jewish organizations in Oes Moines during the past year He mentioned the intvactian of JewiA Family Swlow Willi oqptgt yMrtb,

Jewish Family Service: Peoples' Agency (Continued from Panes) ttw umM and dreumiUiioM of me tttuaUoo ara cntiraljr flctltlaui. DES MOINES - May we always remember to chooae our words with great care lor, as our bible warns us, "Life ' and death are In the power of the tongue." Joe and Rhoda have been married seven years. Their marriage Is in trouble. A reign of silence Interspersed with screaming matches leaving them lonely and desperate. They don't know how to qteak to each other anymore. Rhoda calls JFS. An appointmoit for both Joe and Rhoda Is set up with Ul Carson. During the initial appoUitment, the coupie airs thetrproMenw. Rhoda: He'a sdflah! All he doea Is eat and watch TV when te'a home. He won't talk to me alMMit anything. He cut* me out of everything, even hla work. And them I'm luppoaod to be thrilled to death becauae be pUys with the kids and geU Ibcm all excited ao they can't •lae|> when I put them to bed. He's worse than the kida. Joe: She's a B — h! She doesn't appreciate anything I try to do lor her. She doesn't care one bit about me. All I ever hear are complaints, never a thanks. She can't even cook a decent meal. 1 hate to come home anymore! Although doubtful that they can really "back It", Rhoda and Joe want to stay married i0.each other. They have much -,ln common - their values, 'itheir friends, their interesU, their dreams, their children. But they do not know how to give to and take from each other. But there is hope! With the help of a professionally trained counselor, Joe and Rhoda learn how to ask for what they need from each other. How to ask? That is the task. First comes understanding iand concern (or their own and the other's needs. Joe learns that Rhoda misses him - his smile, his warmth, his sorrow. Rhoda learns that Joe feels spent after a day's work and even a bit scared about wtiat't going on in the olfice. Both Joe «nd Rhoda are pleased to Joww these thlnga about each :«(her, but they atin do not know what to do about all of it. Joe and Rhoda not only are (aught how to speak to each other, but what Is reasonable or unreasonable to ask (or and to expect (rom each other. The simple "You make me (eel (sad)" la changed to "I leel (sad) when you (yell)." The "I want you to love me" is (hanged to "1 want you to kiss )m goodbye when you leave /the house." Joe and Rhoda learn to ask (or passible and 0efined behaviork, to lake rcfponslbillty for their own ireMlngsandtowait. . Rhoda learns to wait (or Joe's smile and conversation until he rests quietly alone for an hour after he comes home. I Joe learns to wait for Rhoda's ^"good meal" wllb 9ao«!|eH^I

and wine until after Rhoda can have a day by herself and the children are put to bed. They make the necessary arrangements so they don't have to wait forever. They have learned that they really do want to please each each other — to give what the Other wants. They have learned how to ask and to tell. Sometimes they still feel desperate about getting their needs met. But now they trust each other; both know that the other partner wanta to help. They have learned how to speak to one another and to build on tbelrtniat. The case Is ckiaed after IS weeks. Joe and Rhoda will return in three monttas to JFS to have their "communlcatk>n ctaeefc-up". Truly, "Uie and death are in the power of the tongue". Rhod» and Joe have chosen tbe uphUI path of marital life.
