"I’m doling better than I did yesterday and I pray to get better soon, the devout Baptist girl said Sunday. A few hours earlier, an intravenous feeding tube had been removed from her arm.
A spokesman at Hadassah hospital said De jean, who was wounded in an Arab guerilla attack, is homesick for Florida but her condition “is improving all the time.”
The 18-year-old Jacksonville, Fla., girl welcomed wellwishers Sunday for the first time since her leg was amputated above the knee the day after Christmas.
Iwo Israeli girls traveled from Rishon Le Zion, 35 miles awav. to bring De jean books, perfume, candies, flowers and a letter from their mayor
She was injured outside a church rn the biblical town of Bethany Dee. 22 when an Arab guerilla tossed a grenade at a bus carrying a group of American Pilgrims.
“It’s very different to see Dejean after reading about her in the papers, lab Davidson. 18. one of the Israeli visitors. said “We felt like coming to cheer her up.”
labs friend, \oheved Kaplan, also 18, brought oranges picked fresh from her grandfather’s orchard.
In the four-bed orthopedic ward where Dejean is recovering, she is surrounded by bouquets of flowers sent by friends in the Cnited States. Dwarfing all the others is a bird-of-para-dise arrangement from her boyfriend in .Jacksonville.
Her mother. Mrs. William Repiogle, said the trip to Israel had been “a financial sacrifice ’ for her husband, who has stayed with her by De jean’s bedside.
Arab guerillas have warned tourists to stay away from the Holy Land, but Mrs. Repiogle, who traveled with a group of Pilgrims from the main street Baptist church in Jacksonville, said, “People shouldn't fear to come to Israel.
“They should be happy to come to Israel because there's a great understanding here and it can give you a brighter outlook on life completely.'' she said
She said Dejean would learn to live with her injury. “Jesus carried His cross and we fee! like our daughter and us are carrying our cross as best as we can,'" she said.
Booklet Explains Headache Hassle
The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., Dec. 31, 1974
That horrible pounding in your head, or that terrible tightness that feels as if steel fingers were gripping your temples, even that unbearable tightness in your neck.
They all spell the kind of pain that many of us feel on occasion — headache misery. And when you're in that kind of pain, nothing seems to matter until it’s gone.
A department of health, education and welfare booklet talks about what headaches tell us and what to do about them Copies of "Headaches’' are available for 25 cents each from Consumer Information, Pueblo, Colo. 81009.
According to the booklet, doctors say that headache is not a disease by itself, but a symptom. This is important because a symptom is a change in your bodily condition that points to something wrong.
Headaches can be the first warning of a serious condition which probably could be controlled if detected early. Only your doctor is trained to find and treat the cause of your headache symptoms.
If you remove the warning, day after day, with a painkiller, you may lie covering up the callat. Until you can
see your doctor to determine the cause of your headache, the booklet suggests these
Rest, quiet and fresh air often help Tension headaches are often relieved by massage of the neck muscles, heat from an electric pad or a shower or warm tub soak, plus any medication the doctor may have prescribed Hunger can cause a headache, so try to make a habit of regular meals. If a meal is delayed more than an hour, a snack helps. .

Pat Baron: N.Y. Matron With Keen Eye
By Bernadlne Morris
New York Tim#* N#w» Service
NEW YORK - Many of the biggest, loosest, longest dresses in the stores right now bear Paris labels, but some of the prettiest are marked “Pat Baron”.
Mrs. Baron is a & arsdale, N Y., matron with a keen eye for fashion All the time she was bringing up her three
children, she managed lo "keep up.” When the youngest reached his teens a few years ago, she was ready to do something about it.
She decided that women like herself who had been living in pants were ready for a change, so she worked up a wrap-around skirt — one si/e fits all — and showed it to stores About 3,OW have been
sold to date, for about $40 with a matching scarf.
A few months ago, she felt women were willing to take another fashion step, so she developed a loose smock dress with big sleeves gathered at the shoulders.
She added a yards-long fabric belt to wrap a number of times around the waist, put the dress over a turtle neck sweater and a tailored shirt.
and with a number of samples in her vuitton bag set off to see the buyers again.
The smock is now in some of the city’s leading department stores, where it sells for $48. It s in a variety of flower prints. Like the skirt, it is made in one size to fit everybody. Well, nearly everybody. Mrs. Baron says it will work on women who wear size 8 to 14, “a small 14 “
She has developed a few more versions of her wrap skirt, including a dirndl, and a short smock to wear with it or with pants.
“I’m selling my taste level, what I think is right," she explains. “I keep the overhead down by working from my home and even making some of the deliveries myself It s very satisfying ”
