DEAR ABBY: You should have told “Mother of Eight Dolls" to tell the doctor who told her, "The law of averages are in your favor, KH) to one,’ to go back to medical school for courses in genetics and statistics.
Theoretically, no matter how many children of what sex a couple already has, tho odds are very close to W-ft) that the next one will be a girl. Before this couple had had any children the doctor could have predicted that if they went on to have eight children, the odds were 256 to one against all eight being girls.
But that isn’t the question the doctor was asked. Be was asked, "Of all families that have seven girls born already, what are the odds that the eighth will be a boy?"
In summary, the proper prediction to give this couple, if asked for advice concerning an eighth try for a boy, would be, "The normal odds are 50-50. but in your case there may be other factors causing you to bear only girls, so I would have to say that your eighth child is more likely to be a girl than a boy."

DEAR SABAH You belong at the head of the elass. which is probably where you are Congratulations.
DEAR ABBY: I was happy the councilman in my area voted against those kooks who wanted to go around naked tm the beaches near where I live.
What s the matter with people today, anyway? Are they trying to make one big nudist colony out of our country? Don't we have enough trouble without letting those perverts and sex maniacs take off their clothes and run naked?
How do you stand?
(Imbed But nudity has little to do with immoral behavior There are nudist camps for entire families and there is nothing “immoral" about them.

Julie Eisenhower Visits Parents
By James Deylr
SAN CLEMENTE, ( alif (UPI) - Julie Nixon Eisenhower spent the first reunion with her father. Richard Nixon, Friday since he resigned as President six weeks ago
Mrs. Eisenhower flew from Washington to El Toro marine corps air base aboard a federal courier plane and was taken by limousine the 15 miles to the Nixon villa, the former Western White House The airplane also carried technicians who will strip Nixon s estate of presidential gear.
She would not speak to newsmen, who were held some distance away. behind a chain link fence, at the marine base.
Mrs. Eisenhower was expected to spend a long weekend with her parents. She had not seen her father since he resigned Aug. 9 and bid her farewell on the White House lawn, hut she has said they talked by telephone almost every day.
Mrs. Eisenhower said earlier this week that her father would enter a hospital soon for treatment of his phlebitis condition, the only such definite statement of Nixon s intentions amidst growing reports that the former President’s health is deteriorating.
The plane transported communications technicians to carry out work in "phasing down" the sophisticated installations at the former Western White House, according to a White House aide in Washington. W illiam Gulley
Cargo of Briefings
The Jetstar also carried a courier with the intelligence briefings which Nixon still receives, he said. Such planes fly from Washington to El Toro every week or IO days
He said there is a "certain list" of private citizens entitled to fly on military aircraft free of charge if space is available. arid Mrs. Eisenhower is on it
It is a long-standing practice to provide such transport for the families of former Presidents, he said "We’ve done it for the Johnsons and for Margaret Truman Daniel,” he said.
Nixon is still entitled to free military air transportation for nonpolitical trips.
Siamese Twins Endure Separation; Doing Well
By boiette Leased Wires
PHILADELPHIA — Clara and Alta Rodriguez, the Siamese twins separated in a rare operation here, may bt* taken off a paralytic drug and a respirator by the end of the weekend, Children’s hospital disclosed Thursday night
A hospital spokeswoman said their conditions were "slightly improved and they were holding their own quite well.”
Dr. C Everett Koop, head of the 23-member surgical team which performed the 10-hour operation Wednesday, said the 13-month-old twins were given curare, a paralytic drug. to prevent them from moving and disrupting the wound.
"They can’t cough. They can’t smile,” Dr Koop said The twins, of the Dominican Republic, were joined at birth at the middle and lower trunk. When one was in a sitting position, the other was forced into a reclining position
Their mother, Mrs Farida Moris de Rodriguez, who has been staying with a friend in a nearby suburb, scheduled a news conference Friday.
Mrs. Rodriguez visited her daughters on Thursday and. according to hospital spokesman Mrs. Shirley Bonem, Clara opened her eyes when her mother came into the room.
"The nurses said Mrs Rodriguez was just overwhelmed,” Mrs Bonem said “Her head kept going from one bed to another in disbelief. She was absolutely delighted that they were both all right.”
For about two weeks the twins will be kept in the same crib to minimize possible psychological problems they could face by not being together constantly If everything goes as well as expected, they could go home in a month.
When the twins entered surgery early Wednesday morning, they had four kidneys that were linked to each other’s bladders and shared an intestinal tract. Their blond supplies crisscrossed into each other
When the babies were separated the surgical team discovered that the rectum was more a part of Clara, the larger of the two. than Alta However, Dr. Kemp said Alta had enough colon to enable him to make an artificial rectum and position it in its normal place.
Completing a relatively rare operation to separate Siamese twins early Wednesday in Philadelphia are, from left, Dr. John Duckett, Dr. Louise Schmaufer and Dr. C. Everett Koop. The twins are heavily sedated but are holding their own. One twin, Clara, is expected to be ‘‘healthy and normal’’ and the other, Alta, should be “healthy."

When it was all over, Dr. Iawip predicted Clara would be “normal and healthy” and Alta would be "healthy.” Each twin now has complete digestive, urinary and reproductive systems
"They will have problems learning how to walk,” he said, noting that because they were connected in the pelvic region, their pelvises were in the shape of a “C” instead of the normal "O” Alta’s pelvis was broken Wednesday and bent into its correct shape, while Clara will have to undergo another operation in two weeks.
A suburban Philadelphia church raised money to bring the girls to the United States for the operation and another local church is collecting funds to assist the family to meet postoperative expenses.
Mrs. Farida Horis de Rodriguez of the Dominican Republic holds her daughters, Clara and Alta, 13-month-old Siamese twins before their operation at Children’s hospital.

LONDON (UPI) - Martha Mitchell began talking the moment she stepped off her transatlantic piano Thursday and talked all the way through customs
She began a press conference by announcing, “I’m going to ask the questions.*’
Martha, in London for a television appearance, spoke of the "trauma” of Watergate and snapped back when someone suggested she had been under great emotional stress.
"Stress?” she said “That’s hardly the word for it. It’s very much an understatement. It s delightful to escape the trauma, if only for a few days.”
Mrs. Mitchell was less bitter about her husband than about Richard M. Nixon
“My marriage was broken up by Richard Nixon,” she said
As for her husband. "I hope he gets a pardon. I hope they’re all pardoned."
Mrs Mitchell said Nixon “only began to dislike me when I said he ought to resign She said, "You can read all about it and Martha j Mitchell’s own story of Watergate when my book comes out.”
Mrs Mitchell was shep-i herded by representatives of j the British Broadcasting Corp (BBC), who took her impromptu press conference I talkativeness as long as they could Then one broke* in to plead
“Please. Mrs. Mitchell. I leave us a few things to ask I you. Ix*t’s break it off now."
