Dear Ann Landers: My heart went out to "Newbury Park the mother of the six year old boy who was so active she had to hire a sitter, take a pillow and blanket and drive to a park so she could sneak in a nap. Although I agree with your advice to get the child tested and perhaps put on medication, it isn't easy to find a physician who under- stands the hyperactive child. Sometimes medication is just a means of masking the symp- toms. It burns me up when well meaning friends and relatives tell you, "There's nothing wrong with your child that a little discipline wouldn't cure." Our son was so un- manageable that the neighbors had to build a fence to keep him off their property. He was destructive and ruined their flowers and shrubs. Punishment was no deterrent. It only made him more in- corrigible. I have been helped a great deal by the National Associa- tion For Children With Learn- ing Disabilities. Their head- quarters is 5225 Grace Street, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15236. The Association is made up of doctors, parents, teachers and nurses. In- variably the hyperactive child is brighter than the average and can think of more mis- chief to get into. Please, Ann, tell "Newbury Park Cadaver" to write to A.C.L.D.'for literature.. She will also be told the location of the nearest chapter. Parents who share a similar problem can be a god- send to one another. Ohio Mother Who Owes A.C.L.D. A Lot Dear Mother: I received over 100 letters from readers who praised A.C.L.D. It gets a five star rating from this corner and I urge parents who have the problem to write to this organization. Dear Ann Landers: You blew it again. I refer to the letter from the woman whose THE BETTER HALF six year old son was allergic to cats. (He was getting asthma attacks and had developed a skin When the woman told her hus- band the cat had to go, he became upset and suggested a better solution find a foster home for the child. You said the guy was bananas. Well, Ann, I don't agree. Kids have caused more divorces than cats. Cats are also a lot cheaper to keep and they do not create havoc and dissension the way some kids do. So please don't write the guy off as a kook. He sounds like a solid citizen to me. Another Stepdad With A Pain In The Neck Kid Dear Pain: Too bad I can't put you in touch with that other nut, I'm sure you'd have a great time together. I feel sorry for your wife and your stepson has my heartfelt sympathy. Dear Ann Landers: If I didn't see it with my own eyes I'd have trouble believing it. A few days ago I received an invitation to a wedding and reception to follow. On the in- vitation was a handwritten note which read, "Please send to pay for your transporta- tion from the wedding to the reception. We are planning a great party at this beautiful resort and hiring buses for our guests." This is a unique experience for me and I don't know how to deal with it. Frankly, I have better things to do with 521. Plain Stunned Dear P. S.: Inform the "host" that you'd be delighted to attend the wedding but you can't afford the reception. Going to a wedding? Giving one? Or standing up in one? Even if you're already married Ann Landers's com- pletely new "The Bride's Guide" will answer questions about today's weddings.

By Barnes Women's earning power major factor New York Times Service NEW YORK The alimony pic- ture, long an irritant to the men who pay and the women who claim it, is changing. A woman's potential earning power is becoming a major factor in court decisions, and tending to lower alimony across the nation. Many judges and lawyers attribute the increasing number of smaller settlements and "short term" alimony to the effects of the women's liberation movement, but some maintain that punitive awards have been diminishing for some time. There seems, however, to be little doubt that awards based on need, taking into consideration the age and present or potential earned in- come of the wife, are becoming common place in divorce courts.' Interviews by the New York Times in a number of states also in- dicate that: women are asking for alimony. judges are refusing alimony to young women without children. to women of any age is frequently awarded for a limited period until children have reach- ed their maturity or until women have trained, or retrained, themselves in business skills. number of women being ordered to share the costs of child support is increasing. awards to men are still comparatively rare, although recent cases are on record. Although there is no nationwide legislation on divorce, alimony and property settlements and there is considerable variation, between states there was a good deal of similarity of views expressed by judges and lawyers throughout the country. Bernice Jonson, a Seattle divorce Lawyer, said she had noted a trend in judges that might be summarized as "if you want to be equal, go out and support yourself." "When I ask support for. clients, I have to work for she said. "1 have to prove she needs it, based on past and present physical and men- tal health, and future needs." "There's been a direct relationship between women's lib and its effect on said William Perkins, a lawyer in Charlottesville, Va. "Women arc- finding that the benefits accrued from the old double standard are no longer applicable. 1 don't think this serves the interest of the plain old housewife." Judges in New York Slate have been affected not only be feminism, but by a legal amendment that re- quires them to take into considera- tion the wife's ability to earn, ac- cording to Bernard R. Selkowe, a New York City lawyer. "In the past few. years, more courts have been denying support to women in good health, with no he said. Although women are more able to work and many more do so, 54 per cent of married women still do not work outside the home, according to Betty Berry, adviser to the National Task Force on Marraige and Divorce of the National Organiza- tion for Women. She said the median income of working women is less than a year. Mrs. Berry, who also publishes a newsletter on marriage and divorce, said that low alimony awards were hurting older women particularly, and "high unemployment is hitting even women highly motivated to work." "Much of the problem arises because judges, lawyers and even, to some extent, women themselves, have unrealistic expectations about the earnings potential of dependent she said. Chicken flavor improved by Interchicken9 "Stanley has stepped up his exercise program he's using a smaller plate so it takes twice as many trips to the kitchen." LONDON (CP) House- wives who complain that chicken no longer tastes as good as it did may be right. As a result of revolutionary developments in the table poultry industry in the last 20 years, birds are killed at a much younger age and proc- essed on a scale that militates against flavor. Research has shown that a time lag of several days be- tween killing and evisceration is essential for a chicken to be fully flavored, a delay that is totally impracticable in a modern packing station proc- essing many millions of birds every year. As a result, a company in Reigate, Surrey, has begun marketing a product that gives added flavor to chicken. The company, White Ste- venson, began its research when it was asked by a man- ufacturer to investigate ways of improving the flavor of its chicken noodle soup. It first tried feeding flavored diets to the birds but the effort was unsuccessful. From its work on meat fla- voring, the company knew that the combination of pro- teins, sugar and fat that pro- duces flavor differs between younger and older animals. Modern techniques could produce a chicken that at- tained the same weight in 49 days as a 120-day-old chicken raised by traditional farm- yard methods but not match- ing the older bird in flavor. The company's scientists began work on a flavoring agent. It had to be entirely natural with no synthetic in- gredients and nutritious in its own right. It had to leave the meat character unchanged and emulsifiers or dispersion agents had to be kept to a minimum to avoid introducing extra water into the bird. Eventually they developed a blend of specially treated baker's yeast, concentrated butter extract and herb and spice oils. The agent, known com- 'Women have long way to go' VANCOUVER (CP) Dr. Pauline Jewett, president of Simon Frase'r University, says women have a long way to go before achieving equali- ty with men, in spite of ad- vances made during the past decade. Dr. Jewett told a SFU conference marking the beginning of International Women's Year that many "old fashioned rules" about a place being only in the home have disappeared, particularly among young people who share household duties. But, she added, the majori- ty of women still are limited to low income, low status jobs. Dr. 'Jewett said even in the Soviet Union, much heralded for its alleged equality of the sexes, women hold few senior positions. mercially as Interchicken, can be varied to give branded chickens a distinctive taste or to suit differences in national palates. In Italy; for instance, test marketing indicated there was insufficient rosemary in the flavor and the quantity of this herb was doubled. The technique is proving popular in the United States, where two major packers are carrying out large-scale tests. One injects the flavor with a hydrolance pump fitted into a dual-pronged head with solid- state electronic cdntrols gov- erning the quantity injected. The other packer immerses chicken portions in Inter- chicken at the point of sale rather than in the processing factory. When Interchicken was in- troduced in Britain in 1973, there was initial skepticism among packers, many of whom resented the suggestion that modern chickens lack flavor. But four packers adopted the technique and consumer tests have shown that its introduction has in- creased sales. Joe Green's ANNUAL.. CONTINUES MENS' SHOES Short and discontinued lines of Savage.
