More women than ever before now are holding jobs around the world, latest U.N. labor statistics show, and ironically more are also unemployed. In fact, in many countries unemployment grows faster among women than among men and decreases in women's unemployment are smaller than in men's. The proportion of women in the work force has increased in 21 industrialized and 13 developing nations, according to the new Yearbook of Labor Statistics issued by the International Labor Organization.

The West German economy is likely to forge ahead this year and unemployment should begin to decline, according to a report released Monday by five leading economic institutes. The institutes, in a joint semiannual report, forecast that the economy will grow by 3.5% in 1986, comfortably above the 2.4% recorded in 1985 and the highest rate of expansion since 1979. "All indications are that the upswing will continue into next year," the report said.

In 1992--500 years after the European discovery of America--the Old Continent may take a lesson from the New World. The European Community, or Common Market, has set 1992 as the year its 12 countries acknowledge the wisdom of U.S.-style interstate commerce and become a free internal market in which people, money and goods move across borders without passports, exchange controls or customs.

Boris Becker will turn 20 on Nov. 22. If he returns to play in next February's Pilot Pen tennis tournament here, he will still have nine months to wait until he can legally buy a beer in California. But not to worry. Becker's cup runneth over in every other way. This prodigy from the small West German town of Leimen is a ready-made episode for "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous." He is a tennis Midas. Everything his racket touches turns to gold.
