The woman, Mrs. Freda McEwcn, claimed she had headaches and falling hair from one type of pill and then contracted blindness in one eye after she switched In an- other type.

The Constitution requires approval by 38 stales, and 3.'l states previously have approved the amendment. The ERA would prohibit discrimination based on sex. The new optimism among ERA supporters represents a turnaround from the pessimism expressed lust summer at a meeting of the National Women's Political Caucus. Spring Approval Mary Brooks, ERA coordinator for the League ci Women Voters, and Pal Kecfcr of Common Cause had told the caucus that Ihey doubted the ERA would be approved by more than two or three more states this spring. But the elections changed that forecast. "I don't know of a state where we haven't picked up pro- ERA said Brooks. The defeat of anti-ERA incumbents was particularly noticeable in such states as Missouri, Florida. Arizona and South Carolina, she said. Ill some contests, the Victors were women challenging anti-ERA office holders. In other cases, the winners were men who had the backing of the informal ERA lobby, consist- ing of the League, the National Women's Political Caucus, Common Cause, the National Organization for Women, the Business and Professional Women, and others. Tremendous Effecf Miss Bascom Is Married to C.D.Campbell "This will have a tremendous effect on the lobbying power of the women's said Brooks. "Last year we weren't taken seriously. This year we damn well are going lo be." Diane Saulter of Common Cause said pro-ERA candidates in the overwhelming majority of races where the ERA was a central issue. This year's elections were the first to lest the political potency of the ERA issue. With six or seven local lobby groups questioning candi- dates about their positions cm the amendment, candidates were forced lo lake stands on it as never before, Brooks said. "I will be amazed if Illinois, North Dakota, and Missouri don't ratify it next she said. "North Carolina, Okla- homa and Nevada have very good chances. Florida, Indiana and Arizona are going to have some real battles but they have a chance to ratify, loo." CITY Miss Sharon Lynn Bascom, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bascom of 214 Sixth street SW, Cedar Rapids, was married to Creightim Dale Campbell Saturday.

Fabric Softener Tenderizes Cloth A fabric softener "tenderiz- es" Ihe fabric so thai il feels soft and smooth to Ihe touch. It also makes towels fluffier. This occurs because the softener provides a lubricating film on the strands of the fi- ber, allowing them to move more readily against each other. As a result, wrinkling is minimized and ironing ei- ther eliminated or reduced.

Hostesses for Ihe event will be the couple's daughters. Mrs. Laurence Booth and Mary Robinson, both of Cedar Rapids.

By Abigail Van Hurcn DEAR ABBY: This is lor who wanted a big wedding but didn't know If his parents should help her par- ents foot Ihe bill because of tradition. 1 am getting married next month and when my fiance and 1 became engaged, his parents offered to split Ihe bills straight down the mid- dle. They figured lhat their son is also getting married ,aml they should help pay for the wedding. This has helped my parents a big way and now we can have the big wedding we've both always dreamed of. HAPPY IN CLEVELAND DEAR HAPPY: I'm happy too. Happy that someone has had the courage to break with tradition in the interest of fairness and common sense. Maybe you'll start a new tradition. I hope so. DEAR ABBY: you please let doctors, nurses, aides and hospital personnel know lhat when someone who works with them is hospital- ized, that person deserves the same consideration about vis- iting hours as anyone else in the hospital? I was hospitalized with a se- rious injury two months ago and during my stay, even Ihough there was a big sign on my door saying: "Positively No Visitors, Doctor's I was pestered to death by co- workers who felt I needed a little cheering up. Nurses, doctors, aides, and people from Ihe hospital .office came to see me. Most of them stayed for only 111 minutes but multiply lhat by nil every day and you'll have some idea of how exhausted I was. I finally had to leave the hospital to gel some rest. 1 love my co-workers, but they almost killed me with kind- ness. Please put this in your col- umn. I hope it goes up on hospital bulletin boards all over the country. FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE DEAR FLO: Here's your loiter. I hope it works. BABY SHOWER HONORS MRS.
