Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 19, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, February 19, 1975 Studies bring fathers back into the family VICTORIA (CP) A United States doctor lecturing at the University of Victoria this week says he's working on bringing the father back into the family. Dr. Ross Parke, head of the social development section of Pels Research Institute in Yellowsprings, Ohio, told the audience fathers have been "a biological necessity but a social accident for too long." He said through studies he hopes to demonstrate that fathers are a social as well as a biological necessity and in two studies already completed at the institute, he said he has come to some determination of the role of fathers in infancy. Because fathers have had to live with the "looking glass phenomena" in which they view their infants through hospital glass and touching Is taboo, Dr. Parke said his studies have put both parents with the infant from the time of both or shortly after. In the first study, he said, observers of the parents noted that fathers tended to hold, talk to, rock and touch the infant more than mothers in the second or third day of an infant's life. The mother excelled the father's performance only in feeding and smiling at the infant. Both parents tended to touch boy babies more than girls, he added. In a second study in another hospital, Dr. Parke said, with infants whose parents were not so well educated as the first group results were similar. Fathers also were found to be more vocal to first-born sons than to first-born girls, and touched and rocked their first-born sons more. In a third and uncompleted study, Dr. Parke said, observers have noted that fathers show more eye-to-eye contact to boys and both parents give rougher play to boy infants. Fathers also seem to turn away from an infant's irritability while mothers did not.

Mrs. Berding netted 54 bags of groceries and a bill of more than on the market run. When the Cin- cinnati family arrives at the market, the clerks cringe because the Berdings get a three-month supply of groceries each time they visit the store. The reason for the quarterly trip is simple Mrs. Berding doesn't like to shop and wants to do it as rarely as possible. Serious blood diseases detected in the unborn IT'S A GREAT FEELING TOMAKE IT N YOUR OWN! and a newspaper route is one of the best ways for a young man or young lady to start down the road to independence. A newspaper route offers many young people their first chance to enter the business world. It gives them an opportunity to earn their own buy the things they want or to save for the future. But while they're earning, they're also learning, they learn the fundamentals of business, handling money, dealing with customers, salesmanship and responsibility. It all adds up to an excellent begin- ning in the process of becoming an independent young man or woman. If you have a son or daughter you think is ready to take that first step, write the Circulation Manager of this newspaper for further information.' SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Two University of California researchers say they have developed a test to detect dangerous and often-fatal blood diseases, such as sickle- cell anemia, in unborn infants. The test requires a tiny sample of the infant's blood, taken from the fetus during pregnancy. Dr. Yuet Wai Kan, an associate professor of medicine, explained the pre- natal diagnosis at the univer- sity medical centre here with his colleague, Dr. Mitchell Golbus, an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology. Dr. Kan said the test is per- formed by. inserting an ex- tremely thin, hollow needle painlessly through the mother's abdomen and into the placentia, where small blood vessels carry a mixture of maternal and fetal blood. Dr. Kan said women volun- teers who were about to un- dergo legal abortions were in- volved in the testing. He said he was able to obtain good samples of pure fetal blood cells in about 60 per cent of the cases.

Dr. Kan said his first clinical case of pre-natal diagnosis involved a Sicilian couple. Both carried genes that might result in a life- shortening disorder called Cooley's anemia, which im- pairs the body's manufacture of hemoglobin necessary to carry oxygen, he said. They already had a daughter with the disorder who- must undergo monthly blood transfusions, Dr. Kan said. He said the mother was determined to have an abor- tion unless Dr. Kan could assure her that the child would not be born with the dis- order. He said the test gave her that assurance. Dear Ann Landers: This may sound like a trashy novel to you but it's new to me. I have fallen deeply in love with the husband of a close friend. We've been meeting secretly at a motel 10 miles out of town. Marriage is out of the question too many children and sensitive spouses in- volved. Last night after my lover checked into the motel we drove around to our room in the rear. Just as we were un- locking the door we bumped right into his eldest son who was coming out of the adjoin- ing room with his girl friend. It was a terrific shock to all of us. Nobody spoke, but his son's gasp could have been heard a half block away. That boy never liked me and I'm sure he'd love to tell his mother, except of course, he'd have to explain what HE was doing there. Shall I take the chance and keep my mouth shut? Or should I tell her myself and promise never to go out with her husband again, although I doubt that I am strong enough to keep the' Dear T: Say nothing. But DO make the promise to yourself and try your darnedest to keep it. You are on a collision course, my friend, and sooner or later there's going to be a smash-up unless you take a quick detour. Dear Ann Landers: How can a female employee tact- fully refuse to have lunch with her boss? I am not a prude but I have no interest in getting involved with him. The last thing in the world I want to do is offend the'man, damage his ego .or jeopardize my job. Can you suggest a smooth but firm negative response that meets all the requirements? Thanks, Ann.-Tongue-Tied In Toledo Dear Toledo: Untie your tongue and tell your boss that for a long time you've had a standing lunch date with the girls and you don't want to hurt their feelings. It's a logical reason and disposes of the problem neatly. Dear Ann Landers: My mother in law and father in law recently separated. Mamie is 44 years old and lives- 30 miles away. Last week when my wife told her the house next door to ours went on the market, she said, "Wonderful, I think I'll buy My wife and I are in our mid twenties. I have always been very fond of Mamie but I real- ly don't want her living next door to us. She is not overbearing or nosy, but my wife and I both feel that there are bound to be problems such as too much "togetherness" and including her in our social activities. Is there any tactful way to tell a mother in law that you love her dearly but you wish she wouldn't buy the house next Dear Con.: You're going to have problems no matter which way you go. My advice is level with her. If Mamie buys the house anyway, you and your wife should sit down with her and outline the ground rules. Then make sure everybody sticks to them. CONFIDENTIAL to Should I or Shouldn't If I were in your place I'd do it. Remember, the only difference between a rut and a grave are the dimensions. LOYAL ORDER OF MOOSE 1234-3rd North RIOULAR W1D.
