something to play with When it is time to take her out the lotion is nice and warm and does not startle her as cold lotion does when it is rubbed on RITA DEAR POLLY Storing those already tied clip on mens ties used to be a real problem as they do not fit conventional tie racks Now I have taken an old lamp shade tied a string from the top can ter of the frame and suspend ed the shade from a closet ceiling It hangs freely and can be turned in any direction The clips on the alreadytied ties fit nicely over the top edge of the shade and the ties hang down smoothly over the side of the shade They do not get wrinkled or soiled and it is easy to spot the desired one at a glance If the shade is deep cutouts around the bot tom edge can be made and ad ditional ties hung DEAR POLLY I think I have the worlds easiest way for Mrs to make fitted sheets out of her first ones Buy plastic cafe curtain rings about oneinch on the outside diameter Slip one ring over each sheet comer and adjust over the mattress until it holds the sheet flat and Smooth Use larger rings over blanket and sheets for winter I also use two on the bottom ends of the top sheet and the bedding stays in nice DEAR POLLY r We have a large family and seem to always run out of ice when we have company I solved this by saving and filling six ounce frozen juice cans with water and putting them in the freez er They take up little space and only one is needed for a glass When I am ready to use one of these I run a little warm water over the can and the hunk of ice slides right in to the glass This saves a lot of time and cleanup if you on ly need ice for one glass and do not want to take out a full tray of DEAR POLLY My sug gestian to anyone who has trouble with the metal trolleys on their bras that they buy bras with plastic ones They are dependable and sturdy You might also try a s i z e larger I learned from experi ence that this helps DEB BIE DEAR POLLY To avoid blisters on my hands while working around the yard I always put adhesive tape around the base of each thumb and around the upper part of the palms When fin ished I simply jerk the tape off and throw it away DE NISE DEAR POLLY To get an even

future development Breast feeding when pos sible is the ideal relationship between mother and baby be lieves Dr Piers and others When this is not however the baby should be held in the mothers arms and fed in a quiet warm she says Bottle in wchich the baby is left to feed him self characterizes the kind of neglect which retards and at times completely the babys development Dr Piers noted that the problem is most severe among lem of neglected children the poor where the effects of parental neglect are most ob vious But it exists in de grees in all social and eco nomic classes Even though a baby may receive adequate nourishment he will fail to develop fully unless he is held and cuddled and talked A psychologist and dean of the Erickson Institute for Ear ly Childhood Education Dr Piers

squeamish about talking about it I suppose the whole society is ashamed that neglect is as severe as we find she said Typically neglected babies can be seen lying forgotten in understaffed busy hospitals where they get a minimum of attention at changing and feed ing time Their existence is vegetative Many of these ba bies are abandoned by par ents and others require long term hospitalization because of illness In their homes they are found in environments of ex treme poverty and hopeless ness where the mother is chronically depressed and has an Idontfiveadam atti tude Dr Piers says Because her family is large or she is tired of having to cope with poverty these mothers dont have enough energy or time to devote to the baby It is in this environment where infanticide or the killing of babies often occurs she add ed In economically f a v or e d families where neglect occurs it is not so total and blat she said Usually then there is someone else to take care of the But s h e criticized mothers who return to work shortly after child birth complaining they are harming their babies A child learns from the start of life from seeing and feel ing Skin contact and being talked to are important to a baby Dr Piers says as well as seeing the response of those who care for him and feeling their muscular re sponse Dr Rene Spitz 83 noted Viennese psychologist now of the University of Colorado Denver participated recently in a news conference with Dr Piers The child alone doesnt de velop into a human he pointed out After the child is 9 months old it is nearly impossible to reverse the decline of the neg lected baby he ba bys personality develops he said between the ages of 3 and 9 months Dr Spitz told of studying 90 children in an orphanage where they were neglected except for sanitary needs and feeding Many of them died by age 2 Of 24 children studied to age 4 only 1 could speak in sentences 18 could walk with support and 16 could eat with a spoon Only one was toilet trained Dr Piers believes the earl ier adoptions occur the better off the child An adoptive home is better for the child than a foster home because of the continuity of relationships for the she said Adoptions of babies by un married individuals might be encouraged she commented because a single parent is bet ter than none at all The institute Dr Piers heads trains teachers of pre school children In the past the care of children of this age hat been relegated to babysitters who although well meaning provide inadequate care she said
