I resent your statement that such people are either ig- norant or negligent. I am a university professor with a Ph.D., have traveled extensively in about 20 coun- tries, have attended socials with ambassadors and other notables, so I don't consider myself an ignorant person. Yet, until you printed it in your column, I never was sure of the meaning of RSVP. As a professor, I have learned that many college students don't know which way the earth rotates, or the difference in time between New York and Denver, so is it realistic to expect them to know the meaning of RSVP? Or do I have my priorities reversed? I suggest that if the lady would substitute "Please let us know whether or not you are coming" for "RSVP" on the invitation, she would have much better responses. UNDERSTANDING IN COLORADO DEAR UNDERSTANDING: Ignorance is simply the ab- sence of knowledge, which is no crime. We are all on different subjects. No offense intended. t DEAR ABBY: I sew most of my own clothes and am pleased with most of the things I have made. I attend sewing classes, so the word got around that I make my own clothing. I am annoyed by people who, every time they see me in something new, ask: "Did you make I think it's as rude a question to ask as: "How much did you pay for that How should I handle this sit- uation without being rude? Please don't tell me I should be proud that I can sew because I could also be proud to wear an expensive ready-made dress, but I don't want to wear the price tag. LOVES TO SEW DEAR LOVES: Yon can't prevent people from question- ing you, but yon can change yonr attitude. The ability to make something that resem- bles an expensive ready-made creation is far more deserving of praise than having the money to buy it. Hand-made things are more valuable though less costly when made by your own hands, so don't resent the opportunities to crow a little. Linda S.

By Gail Cooper Stress-related physiological and psychological disorders are increasing, Dr. Harold Bloomfield said in a Monday evening lecture at the Roosevelt hotel. Bloomfield is the first American psychiatrist to become a teacher of Transcen- dental Meditation the science of creative in- telligence. He told an audience of about 150 persons attending the TM introductory lecture that in the last 20 years, doctors have seen a rise in high blood pressure patients, ulcer victims and drug abuse (especially alcohol "Despite advances in modern he said, "there have been no adequate solutions to these problems which are caused by stress." Written Articles Bloomfield has written ar- ticles about TM and has made presentations over the country. He has written a book, "Medi- tation and which will be released later this year. He recently completed a lecture tour in Israel, Greece and Europe. In 1973 he began teaching TM, Bloomfield said that he recommends the simple tech- nique of TM to his psychiatric patients and notes the positive effects that TM'has on reliev- ing their stress. "TM is not a religion or a philosophy and it involves no change in lifestyle. It is a comfortable process. You close your eyes and practice a simple technique for 20 minutes each morning and he said. The results, backed up by recent research comparing meditators and non-medita- tors, have shown meditators to be calmer, have more energy and greater stability. "In Bloomfield said, "it makes people easier to be with." Studies show that TM is a major scientific discovery because every aspect studied shows the effects to be the exact opposite of stress, ac- cording to the psychiatrist. During meditation, a person achieves a level of rest which is twice the level reached during sleep, even though the medita- tor is fully conscious. Reduced Nervousness Research, begun in 1969-70, has shown that meditators exhibit: Reduced nervousness, depression and irritability and increased sociability and self- assuredness. Meditators also show a decreased tendency to dominate, decreased inhibition and increased emotional stability and efficiency. Bloomfield said that possible medical applications of the research results would be in the treatment of high blood pressure, anxiety, asthma, drug abuse and numerous other stress-related problems.

Society for Women Features Carlo Hills Tells View On Post By Margaret Gentry WASHINGTON (AP) The time was autumn, 1973.
