page 9 at the bottom but it surely depends on what you define
as paragraph. but it's a person speaking so, to avoid a pause
during reading it's better not to have a page break here.
page 11 second column top. a few hyphens should make it possible
to shorten that paragraph.
I didn't buy the whole d/l version so I didn't see any other ;-)

But the widows/orphans thing wasn't specially targeted to you,
it's just a common pattern that those who indent the first
paragraph after a heading also don't know about widows/ophans.
At least that's my opinon.

The German names are much cooler:
Schusterjungen (sons of a shoemaker) and Hurenkinder (childs of a whore)
