KRT LIFESTYLE STORY SLUGGED: INTERRACIAL KRT PHOTOGRAPH BY JOHN COSTELLO/PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER (KRT15-March 23) Michael and Katharine Penn, of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, say that their love is larger than their differences and that strong relationships rely less on common backgrounds than on shared values. In 1970, census figures showed that there were 310,000 interracial couples in the United States. By 1991, they had increased to 994,000. Some experts predict that the number will easily exceed 1 million couples by 2000. (PH) AP,PL ARR (smd72323) 1998 (COLOR) (This photo may be of interest to At-Risk Readers)
