The bewildered writer wanted to knotf' if it was possible that the dog, knew what day of the week it was. You said, "Dogs don't know when it's Friday." Are you Ann? A cook we once had left every Friday evening and returned Tuesday morning. Our little toy poodle, Lucky, used to sit at the kitchen door, sometimes for as long as an hour; waiting for the cook to arrive. She never sat by the door any other day of the week., One Corning I said to Joe, "How in the world does Lucky know it's He answered, "It's easy. She looks morning paper."

Last night while thumbing through a fashion magazine she said, "You could never wear these dresses with that rubber tire around your mid- dle and those elephant hips." I'm so sick of her insults I'd move out of the house in a minute if I had a place to go. Every day she gives me a lec- ture on how to be sexy around boys. The more she talks the more I hate myself and her, too. Last night I sat in my room and cried for an hour after one of her "instructional sessions." Please, Ann, tell me what to dp.

Most school guidance counsellors are good. Some excellent, others just fair. If you haven't considered this route, please do. You could find the answers to many pressing problems right under your nose. And good luck, honey. Dear Ann Landers: Your response to "100 Per Cent the fellow who wanted to get married but resented the government's in- sistence that he and his intended have a blood test, was way out in left field. You said, "The state is trying to prevent the tragedy of blind, retarded and dead babies, which is what can happen if a parent has a venereal dis- ease." You are wrong. The blood tests required for those who want to marry has nothing to do with V.D. They are done to learn whether or not the RH factor is present. If this condi- tion is determined in advance, the baby can be transfused at birth and lead a normal and healthy life. Please get the facts straight before you leap into the advice, Ann. People depend on you. R.N. In Baltimore Dear R.N.: My facts ARE straight; yours are fouled up. The blood testrequired before a cotiplrcan be married'has nothing whatever to do with the RH blood factor. It is sole- ly for the purpose of determin- ing whether or not either person has V.D.

Phone to now under NEW MANAGEMENT We are In no way connected with Qranam Johnson upholstery. TOM and CATHIE WOODALL New York Times Service NEW YORK An astute observation by a mother in Ireland of her son's injured hand has led an Irish doctor to report a simple new diagnostic test of the function of damaged nerves. The test is based on the known fact that the skin of the normal hand wrinkles when immersed in warm water and on, the previously unappreciated observation that under the same circumstances the skin served by a damaged nerve stays smooth. The mother, Mrs. Gwen Freehill, recalled in an interview with the New York Times how she had made the discovery as "a stroke of luck" after her 4-year-old son, Alan, had fallen on a milk bottle on the front porch of their home. The broken glass severed tendons and nerves in two fingers. Mrs. Freehill noticed the lack of normal wrinkling when Alan finished bathing and as she was about to cut his fingernails. She kept observing the change as Alan's nerve injury healed. Three of the fingers on the injured hand were wrinkled after prolonged exposure to water. But the two damaged fingers were smooth. After Alan had an operation, Mrs. Freehill noticed that the injured fingers began to wrinkle again following immersion in warm water. Mrs. Freehill said shs did not realize then the significance of her observation. She said she thought the wrinkling might be an indication that the fingers were returning to normai. "I was very worried about Alan and on the lookout for any Mrs. Freehill said. Accordingly, she reported her observation to Dr. Seamus O'Riain, the plastic surgeon who was caring for Alan. O'Riain told Mrs. Freehill that although he had never heard of the it intrigued him O'Riain set about testing "a number of patients" he treated as a consultant plastic surgeon at University College Temple Street Children's Hospital, St. Vincent's Hospital and Dr. Steeven's Hospital in Dublin to determine the effect of warm water immersion on their hands He reported in the British Medical Journal that the simple test it required nothing more than a basin of warm water for 30 minutes was "objective, accurate, and shows not only sensory loss, but also the progress of sensory recovery." After such testing, O'Riain said, "erve-damaged "skin does not shrivel; it remains smooth O'Riain's report said the test was "of much more value than traditional subjective tests, which depend not only on the patient's co- operation and concentration but also on his intelligence." O'Riain said, he had found the water immersion test helpful in diagnosing the specific nerve injury suffered by several patients. One child tested, who had a deep cut of the palm, was found to have normal wrinkling of the skin on the thumb and index fingers and one side of the little finger. However, the skin on the fingers with the loss of sensation from the nerve injury the middle, ring and outside border of the little finger remained quite smooth. _ By correlating this pattern with the anatomical pathway of the nerves in the arm, O'Riain said he had found at surgery "that the situation in the palm was exactly as expected" on the basis of the findings from the water j immersion test.
