Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta July S, THI LETHBRIDOt HUtAlD 21 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Your remark in response to "Just that "a gen- tleman never tells" made me laugh. How naive can you get? I've held hands with at least men in the past 20 yean. You see, I'm a man- icurist and I could write a book about the things I've beard in barber shops. Do you know the favorite topic of most men? WOMEN. Or to be more specific, "wo- men I have known." (And they use the word "known" in the biblical sense.) Naturally they never talk about their fail- ures only their conquests. And the duty dogs name names and places, with no thought of who might be un- der tfae towels in the next chair. It could be the lady's husband for all Chey know. So please knock off that sweet talk that "a gentleman never tells." They tell plenty. Clammy Hands Of The Midwest DEAR MISS: I refuse to re- tract a word of it. Those barbershop blabbermouths can' hardly be called gentle- men. DEAR ANN LANDERS: months ago we were invited to an elaborate wed- ding, complete with reception, and the works. It must have cost a fortune. Yesterday a friend who is' close, to the bride's family told me she knew for a fact that the couple did not have a marriage license and they didn't sign any papers. It was a phony ceremony. It seems the groom's di- vorce didn't come through in time for the second marriage to be valid, so they dadoed that since the invitations1 had been sent out and the plans were made, they 'would go ahead with' the "wadding" DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am visiting here from South America and finding it dif- ficult to understand what is considered correct in social situations. I plan to apply for citizenship after I have completed my education, but I wondar if perhaps you can settle something in my mind. At a dinner party last night several women tried to get medical advice from a guest who happened to be a physi- and be legally married later by a J. P. or something. They actually did get married tfae following month by a judge. I believe the guests were taken advantage of and I, for one, feel like a fool. I'd like to let the couple know that it was a dirty thing to do to the guests. My husband says to forget it. What do you say, Ann? Feeling Foolish In Suffolk DEAR FOOLISH: The couple was obviously caught in a web of unfortunate cir- cumstances and they solved tteir dilemma in the way that seemed best to them. with your husband. cian. They asked questions such as, "Which is better, the pin, a diaphragm, or should a man get a These questions were asked at the table between the sal- ad and the soup. Are such questions considered good manners here? B.B. DEAR B.B.: Such questions are not considered "good manners" any place accept in the office of -a profession- al.

BRODY New York Times Service NEW YORK Doctors have identified a pattern of serious birth defect among children born to women who are chronic alcoholics. It is not known whether the finding has any significance for women who drink socially dur- ing pregnancy. However, with an estimated two million alco- holic women in this country, at least half of whom are of chil- bearing age, the finding is ex- pected to have far-reaching sig- nificance even if it relates only to very heavy alcohol consump- tion.

The eight children in the Seattle study (several more been identified else- where) all had subnormal intel- ligence, with I.Q.'s ranging from less than 50 to 83, and most were below average for their age in performance of motor tasks. At birth, the children in the study weighed only half of what fire average baby weighs after .a comparable period of gesta- tion and they were about 20 per cent shorter than average. The children continued to be re- tarded hi growth after birth, even those were cared for in a hospital or in foster homes. The children studied were un- related and came from three ethnic groups American In- dian, black and white. All they had in common a mother who was an alcoholic during pregnancy. The study was conducted by Drs. Kenneth L. Jones. David W. Smith, Christy N. Ulleland and Arm P. Streissguth, all of the Department of Pediatrics at" the University of Washing- ton. The search for a malfor- mation syndrome was stimulat- ed by Dr. UUdand's observa- tion last year that children born to alcoholic mothers tended to suffer growth deficiency and developmental delay. On tie basis of their current i findings, tte authors conclud- ed. "Tfae data is sufficient to establish that maternal alcoho- lism, can cause serious rant fetal development. Furth- er studies are warranted rela- tive to the more specific cause and prevention of this tragic disorder." In a telephone Interview, Dr. Smith said it was not known ,how, common this syndrome was among the offspring of alcoholic mothers. He however, that he was studying its inci- dence and "it looks as if it could be as high as 20 per cent."
