I was born and raised in another country and I cannot understand the ways of the people here allhough America has been my home for 11 years. Many neighbors and friends came to our baby's funeral. After the funeral they came to our home to sit with us during the lonely hours of mourning. Nobody mentioned our baby's name. Not a single person said, "I am sorry your baby died." Our visitors talked about everything under the sun except the reason they came. Please tell people they should at least say, "f am sorry for vour loss." If it is BJI American custom not to -sny anything it is senseless and should be changed. Foreign Mother DEAR MOTHER: In every country, actions speak louder than words. Your friends did not feel it was necessary to tell you why they were at your side. Their presence spoke for them. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Yesterday our 12-year-old son had to stay after school because he misbehaved in class. It has happened before and my husband made a rule that when this occurs Jim must walk home. (I usually drive him.') Wo live 14 blocks from the school. About it suddenly turned very cold and the sky dark- ened. I began to worry and got in the car and started out to look for the boy. I found him six blocks from home, cold and worn out. My husband was home when we arrived, lie was furious with me for having gone to get Jim. lie said I was undermining him by interfering with the agreed punish- ment. I say the boy might have been caught in a storm and I did the right thing. Please settle it. Chippewa Falls DEAR The fact that a 14-block walk is considered punishment these days is a good example of what's wrong with some of our kids. I suggest the boy walk every day and it should be called exercise, not punishment. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our 20-year-old daughter (pretty, good student, formerly sensible, but now impetuous, rebellious and downright brainless) h'as just accepted a curtain ring from her boyfriend. He couldn't afford anything else so he gave her a dime-store circlet used to hold up a shower curtain. Jill has had three years of college but didn't return this fall because she preferred to go to work. This was all right with us although we wanted her to get a diploma. The boy she plans to marry is a high school dropout in a low-paying job. He has no skills and no future. I had a long talk with Jill in an effort to learn what she sees in the boy and why she wants to be his wife. I concluded that she wants to be married because all her friends are getting married and she isn't fussy about the fellow so long as he is male. Jill dates other boys secretly which leads me to believe she isn't really in love with this chap. The wedding date is drawing near and although she seems less interested in him than ever, I'm afraid she'll marry him anyway. What can I do? Innocent Bystander With Bated Breath DEAR B. B.: Remain a bystander and save your baled breath to cool your soup. Nothing you can say will stop her, but you MIGHT say something that could shove her into a marriage she doesn't want. Remain available for counsel and hope for the best. Warning leaflet recommended Safest birth control is sterilization By KEN KELLY Canadian 1'rcss Science Writer OTTAWA (CP) Health Min- ister John Munro said here IK hopes soon to remove the legal uncertainties surrounding oper- ations for male and female ster- ilization. lie made the comment at a news conference where he ex- pressed favorable reaction to :ecommendations of a special committee on the safely and ef- 'ectiveness of the birth control pill. The committee, headed by Dr. R. A. H. Klnch, Montreal obstetrician and gynecologist, found that for the couple with as many children as they want, sterilization is the safest form of contraception. Next to that, the committee found the pill presents a lower risk of death over a lifetime than use of any other form of contraception or of no contra- ception at all. GIVE FIGURES Death rates in 1967 for wom- en in the age groups 20-34 and 35-44 were respectively 20 and 51 per maternities, in- clud i n g deliveries, complica- tions of pregnancy, childbirth and the 90-day post-delivery period. Annual risk of deatli from pill use is 2.1 per users com- pared with 2.3 from unprotect- ed intercourse and 1.5 from male and female sterilization. Lifetime risk, including risk of deith frorr. two planned preg- nancies, is 89.2 per from pill use, 280.9 from no contra- ception and 46.2 from female sterilization. Mr. Munro was asked what would be done, in the light of Jie committee's comments on sterilization, about the confu- iion as to the legality of sleril- zation operations. Mr. Munro replied that this has been con- sidered in the past and there now is good reason to consider clarification. "I would hope that we could come out with a clarifying statement on the state of UK .aw on this question shortly." AGREES WITH MOST With respect to other com- mittee recommendat ions, ta- )led in the Commons, Mr. Mun- ro said he accepts most of them and expects that one involving warning pamphlet for every packet of birth control pills will be in force in a matter of months. The committee suggested that each lime a woman buys pills on her doctor's prescription she receive a warning leaflet about potential signs of trouble from such things as blood clots. The literature also should empha- size the need for continuing medical supervision while us- ing the pill. Dr. K i n c h estimated that some Canadian women are taking oral contraceptives, in use about 10 years. iiiUST r AvJE KiSKS But the price paid is certain actual and some potential risks to health. Only in knowing those risks could the doctor and pa- tient decide. together whether to use the pills. Dr. Jeffrey Bishop, who heads the drag advisory bureau of the food and drug directorate, told the news conference that talks are under way with drug manu- facturers about belter anim a 1 >nd human trials of existing and new oral contraceptives.
