PROVIDES VITAMINS A two-ounce serving of cooked beef liver provides more than international units of vitamin A Ann Landers Dear AM Please forgive me if you have trouble reading my letter. The ink is blurred in spots because I've been crying. When I came home from school yesterday, my brother Billy told me the police just took Dad to the hospital. Billy said Dad had locked himself in the bathroom, downed a bottle of whiskey, swallowed Lord knows how many pills and then broke a mirror with his fist and bled all over the place. Billy called the police when he heard Dad moaning. They came over right away, took the door down and carried Dad to the hospital in the squad car. Mom was at work and Billy decided not to frighten her because Dad has passed out drunk so many times and it always upsets her terribly. Today the doctor said Dad might live, but I don't know if we will ever get over hating him for all the heartache and tears he has caused our family Please help us handle this. N.Y. Trouble Dear N.Y.: Your dad is a very sick man You and your brother must learn to understand his illness before you become sick from hating him Your school counsellor knows about Alateen, the wonderful organization for teenagers whose parents have a drinking problem. Ask her (or him) to discuss it with you and send for their literature You and your brother should attend the Alateen meetings together. It could change your lives, and your father's, too. Dear Ann Landers: I came home from work early the other afternoon, sooner than expected When I walked into the living room I found my 11- year-old son masturbating. I backed out immediately because I didn't know if I should spank him, ignore it, lecture him or what. Now that I know he is indulging in this despicable habit, what should I do9 I am frightened to death because I don't know if he already has harmed himself. I am divorced and have no male who can help. Does the child need special counselling' Frantic Dear Mother: It is YOU who needs counselling. Masturbation is the natural way young people (both boys and girls) discover their sexual feelings. The old wive's tale that "self-abuse" causes physical harm is not true. You need a third party, preferably a professional, to advise you on how to cope with the situation Dear Ann Landers: I am a Registered Nurse who works and teaches in a hospital. I also assist my husband who is a veterinarian I am sick and tired of people asking my husband why he didn't become a "REAL doctor." Why don't they realize he IS a real doctor? He is a D.V.M. a doctor of veterinary medicine He had to go to college for eight years before he could practice, the same as an M D Only the internship is longer for the M D. He works very hard performing medical diagnosis, taking x-rays, prescribing medication and doing surgery I might add that there is very little difference between a hysterectomy (spay job) on a 110-lb German shepherd and a 110-lb woman An M D 's costs (which he passes on to his patients) do not require him to maintain a complete hospital Most veterinarians do I wish people had a better understanding of (and more respect for) their pet's doctor. Please educate them, Ann. Orlando Dear 0.: You did. And I thank you, and so will several thousand doctors of veterinary medicine. Planning a wedding? What's right? What's wrong?

And dented the pockets of hundreds of persons She and her family of 11 arrived in Los Angeles last summer from Illinois in three claptrap cars, and they told a hardluck story that touched even cynical news reporters. As one report put it: "Both men were laid off their jobs, an apartment house fire wiped out almost everything they owned and two of the kids were chronic asthmatics, getting worse Los Angeles was touched by the family's troubles. People donated more than to the family after reading about its plight. "Thank the 39-year- old Marie Stevens said afterward, "for touching the hearts of all those wonderful people." "When I think about it I could cry And she did Switch scenes: Las Vegas, Nev., six months later January, 1974 Newspaper readers learn of a family of 13 stranded in the city without food or money The family head, Mane Stevens, relates that she has lost her wallet with in a restaurant Las Vegas responded with in donations Switch scenes one more time: Denver, Colo two weeks later, in early February. Again Mrs Stevens' family, now numbering 12, is in the news Mrs Stevens tells reporters that public and private agencies have rejected her pleas for assistance and that the family is destitute. She had come from Antioch, 111., the story went, with her sprawling brood of sons, daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren out to discover the California Dream. But in Dever, a listener told police Mrs Stevens made the same appeal two weeks earlier in Las Vegas, and then suddenly left town when the police, press and officials of public and private aid agencies found numerous inconsistencies in her story Police visited the family and warned of a city ordinance forbidding soliciting under false pretences. The family quietly left town, apparently headed back to Chicago in search, perhaps, of the Illinois Dream.
