Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, April 25, 1973 Hormone therapy affects sex role By SUSAN FOGG Newhouse News WASHINGTON The sons of women who received estro- gen the female sex hormone during pregnancy, are less mas- culine, in terms of aggressive- ness and athletic ability, a study by three doctors of the Stanford University psychiatric department indicates. The study was made of 20 sons age 16 and 20 sons age six of women who were treated with estrogen during pregnancy because they had diabetes. The hormone therapy was designed to prevent a spontaneous abor- tion or miscarriage. The 40 sons of diabetic moth- ers who had received estrogen therapy were compared on the basis of a series of physical and psychological tests, and in- terviews, with the sons of who had not received the therapy. The aim of the study was to determine if hormones may in- fluence masculine and feminine behavior, as well as anatomy, according to the authors of the study.

They were also found to be less athletic, in terms of mas- culine co-ordination. This was judged according to the way they ran (running with the arms close to the chest was rcnked as feminine) and the way they threw a ball and swung a baseball bat. The psychological tests indi- cated that the estrogen sons were "less competitive, placed less emphasis on physical prow- ess, were less success-oriented, and diplayed less determina- tion to achieve their the study said. The six-year-olds in the study whose mothers had taken estro- gen during pregnancy were rated by their teachers as less athletic and assertive than the control group of six-year-olds, although there were no signifi- cant differences in psychologi- cal testing. The estrogen also had a different physique than the normal 16-year-olds. They were shorter, but just as heavy as the normal boys, and had a shorter torso in relation to their height. However, there was no signifi- cant difference between the two groups of 16-year-olds in terms of homosexual experiences, or other feminine behavior. Nor were differences such as dress- ing as girls, playing exclusive- ly with girls, or wishing to be a girl found In the six-year-olds or reported from their childhood the 16-year-olds among the two groups.

Where the influence is a mat- ter of emotional or psychologi- cal conditioning, feminity in males may express itself in terms of "cross dressing, tak- ,ng the role of a girl in games and playing with girls' toys." The other influence, female hormones during pregnancy, "may be more nonspecific and the authors said, md take the form of athletic- ness or general aggressiveness, and other subconscious or phys- "ological behavior.

"For one thing, I don't have the time to spend it. "The biggest reward is the fun of doing the thing itself. Money is a know, success among your peers." Mrs. Lawrence, a slender, intense blonde who routinely puts in 14-hour work days, calls herself "one of those lucky people who started work because I had to make some money. It gives you a drive and a sharp-edged real- ity that's priceless."

To hear Mrs. Lawrence tell it, she and her husband mainly talk shop. "We're like a mini-corpo- she said. "Our inter- ests are 100 per cent in com- mon. We're both financially oriented and stimulate each other -with our thoughts about running a business. WRG is extremely cost-con- scious and boasts one of the highest profit margins in the business. 17 per cent of reve- nues compared with an in- dustry average of about seven per cent. NO SMALL TALK Small talk is one luxury that is eliminated under her philosophy. "WRG is peculiar in that it's very said its chairman, "We don't waste time with social conversation and no- body drinks with each other at the end of the day. By that time we're so tired we don't wart to have anything to do with each other."

Although WRG is a business run in dead seriousness, the hallmark of its advertising is humor. "People don't want to be treated like she said of inflated claim ads. "Humor shows perspective with re- spect. It says to the con- sumer, 'Look, you know and I know that this product is not the answer to your life-long problems.

THE BETTER HALF By Barnes the grab bag MAUREEN JAMIESON ''Harriet served me another of her instant dinners, to I matched it with an instant TyTATOHING this week's shopping list with last year's income can be pretty frustrating. These days that old bug- bear, inflation, has many peo- ple shopping around for part- time employment to supple- ment their income. According to Statistics Can- ada, some family wo- men now work on a part- time basis, many of them in direct selling. This kind of work is popu- lar because it allows women to work from their homes, choose their own hours, work at their own pace, and deter- mine their own income based on initiative. The appealing opportunities of direct selling have led many women (and men, too) to invest time and money in products, without first check- ing the company's reputation or credentials. Often, they end up with a garage full of a product they can't use, and with a debt they can't recov- er. If you are considering going into direct selling, take' a careful look before you in- vest. For your own protection, check on the following guide- lines: sure products will be sold to actual customers at retail. sure your money in- vestment is reasonable for the product involved. sure everyone is of- fered the same sales plan. sure the company knows its products, and can supply the quality and amount of items you can sell. sure the company guarantees customer satisfac- tion. all, be sure the company sales plan and prin- ciples are reputable. If you have any question about any of these features proceed with great cau- tion. A big bouquet to a local insurance agency. A carload of teenage boys headed off for a boating holiday Good Friday morning. Forty nJJcs down the highway, the car and trailer jack-knifed, and the boat ended up in pieces in the ditch. Six very disappointed youths and their driver re- turned to the city, convinc- ed their holiday wouldn't get off the ground. On hearing this tale of woe, the insurance company sent out an adjuster, investigated the claim and arranged set- tlement to everyone's satis- faction by 3 o'clock that same holiday afternoon. The driver got hold of a new boat, and the trip was under- way again by noon the next day. The boys all want to say. An Atlanta garbage pick- up company is advertising: "satisfaction guaranteed or double your garbage back." How's that for a dirty deal?
