Edward Peal held a special brief ing for Mrs. Frankie Freeman, president of Delta Sigma Theta, just prior to her departure on a 6-weeks tour of Africa. Mrs. Freeman, who was a member of the U.S. Civil Rights Commis sion, is inspecting housing advancements and problems in seven African countries. PREGNANCY PLANNING @AND HEALTH Mrs. Gloria Riggsbee * Dear Gloria: I am 54 years old. My periods stopped in November, 1969, for 13 months until December, 1970, when I had another completely normal period. I went to our .family surgeon for a physical exami nation and a pap smear. He told me everything was OK and he could not find any ab normality. He said he felt like I just had another ovulation left in my body and that this was it. Six months have passed and I have had no more periods. Do you think I still could be come pregnant? I certainly would not want it to happen at my age, for the risk would be too great. When I asked the doctor, he just laughed and said he could not guarantee that I would not get pregnant. Would appreciate an answer, for some of my friends have similar problems. Mrs. F. Dear Mrs. F.: As your doctor has told you, no one can guarantee that you wont get pregnant. Or dinarily, doctors advise women to continue to use birth con trol for at least one year or as much as two years after their last period (even if that General Motors Gives $75,000 To United Negro College Fund NEW YORK, N. Y. - General Motors Corporation has donated $75,000 to the 1971 campaign of the United Negro College Fund, a 25% increase over last year, it was announced today. Vernon E. Jordan, Jr.,execu te director of the UNCF, expressed the Fund's gratitude for the gift which, Mr. Jordan says, brings GM's contributions over the years to the UNCF, to $1,200,000. "We are tremendously in cpired by this support from one of the greatest corpora tions in the world," Mr. Jor dan said. Richard C. Gerstenberg, vice chairman of GM and vice chairman of the UNCF** Na tional Corporations „ Com mittee, said his company feels its contributions to the UNCF are "more of an investment than contributions, because we have seen the dividend it pays."

In your case, since you did have a normal period after a 13 month absence of menstrua tion, you probably should figure on using a reliable method of birth control for another 12 months. If nothing else happens, this will mean you will have gone a full 18 months without a period and you should be safe after that time. As I |am sure you know, it is very important that you continue to see your doctor for a physical examination and a pap smear at least once a year even after you have gone through your change of life (menopause) * *** A Note To Readers: Hi is column is now running in quite a few different areas and it is becoming increasingly difficult for me to list the times and locations for family planning clinics in each separate area. If you would like to know where you may obtain family plan ning services in your particular town or county, please let me know and I will send you this information.

"All of us in the drive are encouraged by this fast start and highly optimistic that the $10,000,000 goal will be reached," Mr. Vance said. Mr. Jordan expressed grati tude also for a $75,000 contri bution from the Esso Educa tion Foundation, previously announced by the Foundation.

Eximbank Bill OKd ' I WASHINGTON - The House voted Thursday to expand ex port credit financing by the Ex port-Import Bank but blocked a move designed to liberalize East-West trade. The bill, passed by voice vote after sharp debate, would ex pand the Eximbank's lending authority, primarily by remov ing its transactions from the government's unified federal budget. The major fight came as the House, by a vote of 207 to 153, retained the current ban on Eximbank financing of ex ports to Communist block coun tries supplying materials or aid j to North Vietnam. WASHINGTON, D.C.-Mrs.' Frankie Freeman, national pre sident of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, is spending the next six weeks in seven African countries meeting with govern ment and private officials in the housing industry to discuss their housing needs and pro grams. Mrs. Freeman also is ohe of the two official representatives of Aid for International Deve lopment (AID) of the State Department at the United National Housing Conference in Togo for West African Coun tries. She will return to the United States in time to share her observations before the national convention of Delta Sigpia Theta in Houston, August 8-13. For 20 years Mrs. Freeman served as attorney for the St. Louis, Missouri Housing Au thority. She presently is a member of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. Mrs. Freeman said, prior to her departure for Africa, "I will be discussing with African officials how- people, and women in particular, are in volved in the process of meet ing housing needs in their respective countries." Housing, Mrs. Freeman added, is one of the major program interest of Delta Sigma Theta. She pointed out that the Houston Alumnae Chapter has bought land and broken ground for a housing development to provide home ownership for low-income families. Recently, the Detroit Alumnae chapter co-sponsored with the Michigan Civil Rights Commission a housing seminar which was addressed by Mrs. Freeman. According to Mrs. Lynnette Taylor, Executive Director of Delta Sigma Theta, a national HIGHEST LIONS HONOR TO 808 HOPE JRP Comedian Bob Hope accepts the 1971 Lions International Humanitarian Award from Dr. Robert D. McCullough of Tulsa, Oklahoma, President of the world's largest humanitarian ser vice organization. The award was given to Hope for his continuous efforts and work in behalf of sight conservation and eye research, one of the major concerns of Lions Clubs throughout the world. The presentation was made this past weekend in Washington, D.C., because film commitments will prevent Hope from attend ing the Lions world convention in Las Vegas this June. fTIPS ON * CAR CARE ti Don't Let Your Car Lose Its Cool Here are a few tips that could save your car and you from spending a hot summer afternoon steaming by the roadside. Give your car's cooling system a simple inspection. Start with your radiator, engine block and heater hoses. Check these for cracks, a sure sign that hose failure is not far off. Another test for hoses is squeezing them. If the hose remains col lapsed after you squeeze it down, instead of springing back, it probably needs replacing. If you find one hose that needs replacing, it is wise to replace all your car's cooling hoses. All too often a motorist replaces a bad hose only to find, much to his chagrin, that 20 miles down the "pike" his trip is terminated in a cloud of smoke. One of the most common causes of overheating, ac cording to B:F.Goodrich car care specialists, is a stuck heat-control valve in the heat riser located on the lower right side of your car's manifold. When working properly, this little gadget warms up and then opens. When corro sion or engine deposits build up on the heat-con- | d mm ■ BMF ■■ ■ HL ■ kI j • %M - I R I 1 ■ 1 S DOING THEIR THING RIGHT— This picture represents three generations 'of AME Zion workers.

Our conven tion theme is 'Promises To Keep.' trol valve, they can cause it to stick closed, leading to engine overheating. Spraying the heat riser with a solvent/lubricant that can be purchased at most automotive stores will cure the problem and prevent its recurrence. The belts that drive; your car's fan, alternator or generator, and air con ditioner should also be in spected for wear, damage and tightness. A screech ing noise from under the hood as you start or accel erate your car is a sure sign that a belt is loose or worn. If tightening a belt doesn't cure its screeching prob-, lem, the belt should be replaced. If your car checks out in all these tests and still seems to run excessively hot, it should be taken to your local car care center where an expert can check the condition of its water pump and thermostat. tive state, (N.C.).

If you're a high school graduate and you take ROTC when you get a crack at a three-year scholarship in your freshman year. Or a two-year one the year after. Or one that'll pay for your last year. With Army ROTC, you never lose. Even if you don't win a scholarship and the folks wind up footing the bills, you get an Army commission when you graduate.
