Wednesday, February 9, I97J THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID 17 Catholics introduce rhythm replacement LOS ANGELES The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles plans lo set up clin- ics to leach a natural birth-con- trol method that a spokesman says is "safe, lOII-pcr-cent sure and morally acceptable to the church." Called the "o v u 1 a I i o n it has "made the rhythm and temperature meth- ods Ucv. Kobert Dee- gaii, director of the arch- diocese's health and hospitals department, said in an inter- view. The method was developed by an Australian husband-iunJ-wife medical leam, Mrs. John and Lyn Billings. The Australian doctors say their method is based on the same principle as the rhythm method, but is much surer. They say the method is based on a discovery that a woman can become pregnant only on days when a mucus has been secreted by glands in her cer- vix. "In every fertile cycle the woman notices this secretion of cervical says Dr. John Billings, "so it is an infallible method of determining when conception can occur." YOUNG FASHION DESIGNER Ten-year-old John Schcr holds one of his fashion design sketches which have brought him offers from some of file top designers in Ameri- ca. The boy, son of Dr. and Mrs. Ernest Scher of Baltimore, began his interest at the age of four. Ann Landers 'Fashion ivorld now ready lor brainy fourth-grader DEAR ANN LANDERS: I would like to comment on the. letter signed First Infantry, Fresno, California. The officer was giving advice to the young bride whose husband is in Vietnam. Her mother was dying of cancer .arid she needed to stay with her father, but she also needed her husband home. He advised her to suggest that her husband apply for a. compassionate assignment, at a post near her parents' home. I can't understand why an army officer would give that advice. How much better had he said, "Go to the American Red Cross." When Woodrow Wilson was President of the United States he asked that the American Red Cross be set up as a liaison between servicemen in UK field and their families. It has served in this capacity ever since. Tlw officer should have advised the young woman lo con- tact her local American Red Cross. They would have assigned, a Home Service worker to visit the mother and investigate the case thoroughly. A statement would have been requested from, the mother's physician and possibly one from her clergyman. These verifications arc essential. The Red Cross would then have sent the information to Washington via teleprinter and the Army in Washington would have relayed it by wireless to Vietnam. The Red Cross can. accomplish in minutes what it takes Congressmen, Senators, and private citizens months to do. Hundreds of thousands of people will attest to the effectiveness of this great international, W. L. F. DEAR DR. W. L. F.: My tlianks to you for providing my readers wiih this information. DEAR ANN LANDERS: When I married at 17 I weighed. 110 pounds. After ten years and three children I doubled my My husband begged me to go on a diet hut my answer was, "I am what I am. Take it or leave it." Well, he left it and moved in with a woman who worked for him. Not long after he asked for a divorce and I gave it to him. I was hurt and heartsick. 1 couldn't eal. The first 20 pounds fell off in two weeks, so I decided to keep going. Within nine months 1 lost 75 pounds. During that time 1 met a real gentleman. He is crazy about me, loves my children and pays a lot of attention to them, which their father never did. He wants me to marry him. Problem: The ex- husband saw me for the first time in seven months and wants me back, Should I give him another chance? You're going in Juice DEAD O.J.: Sorry, but it's your life you're going to decide. If you do decide to remarry the guy you can expect a re-run of the old movie. DEAR ANN LANDERS: If you print this letter, please skip the city. 1 don't want my girl to know I wrote it. I smile a lot and keep my mouth shut so siie doesn't have a clue that I am a little burned up about some- thing. What 1 want to know is, do I have a right lo be mad? This chick has been my steady for four years. I make a good paycheck and am not tight with the buck. We exchange gifts several times a Christmas, Easter, Hal- lowe'en, St. Pat's (we're both Irishers) and like that. Three years ago I spent a wad on a piece of jewelry she didn't like. I coukln'i take it back because I get it from a friend, wholesale. She told me. "You're a nice guy but your lasle is lousy. From now nn give me the money and I'll buy what I want." So, I've been doing just thai. Now I have a hunch she hasn't been buying anything. Instead, she's quiclly socking il away. Slio's go) to have at least bucks by now.

He now is 10. The fashion world is now ready for him. He has been offered a trip to Paris. He has had chats over lunch with some of America's top design- de la Renta, Kas- per and Anne Klein. He has recently raised the prices of hk sketches from to He has even had an offer from a company lo design his own line of clothes, but he'll probably say not.

"Kaspcr said I should live my own life, ride my bike and not get too involved in fashion until I am older." said John, the son of Dr. Ernest Scher, an obstetrician-gynecologist. John prefers the classic clothes that his mother wears. Although his mother is his in- spiration, she hasn't had his dawings made into clothes yet. "f love his things, but I don't have any time or a de- cent dressmaker." Evelyn Scher said. John sketches in pencil and colors in crayon, using scraps of paper and the backs of campaign posters used by his mother when she ran for country office. "He's always had sensitiv- ity about color and texture." said John's father. "I'm all for his doing it, if he enjoys it" DRY CLEANING SPECIALS!

Most consumers probably have, especially since syn- thetic fibres have added a whole now range of products to the market.
