Child, 2, doesn't talk-don't fret Dear Dr. Lamb have a small child, almost two years old, in placement, who ap- pears to be in good physical health and mentally alert but has made no attempt in speaking. Do you have any sug- gestions on how to handle the situation? Dear Reader Children often do not speak by the age of 2, in fact, in contacting some of my neurology colleagues, I am told that one should not be- come unduly concerned if a child doesn't talk until he reaches the age of 4 years. I am told pediatric neurologists see many children who are three years of age and haven't started talking yet. At the early age of 2 and 3, the important point is to be cer- tain that the child does receive language properly, technically called receptive language abil- ity. This means that you can tell that the child understands what is said. If the child is told to "wash your hands" there would be some response, or if he is told "don't do that" there would be a proper response. There should be definite evi- dence that vocal commands are heard and understood. If this is true, the important approach is to relax and not bug the child. Just leave the chUd atone and let him or her play with other children of the age and don't push Li time the child will start normally. The one common problem Chat is important to rote out is deafness. If the child shows re- ceptivity of language and fol- lows commands, then the child is not deaf. If there is no re- sponse to verbal commands then the possibility remains that the problem is really deaf- s. It is sometimes difficult to diagnose deafness in a young child. One measure is to take EEG (etectroencepholo- gram or brain wave) and then observe any changes that occur when a loud noise is made to startle the child. If the cMtd does not notice the noise, there is the possibility that he never beard it If the brain wave shows a response then, the bearing is probably intact. There are other sophisticated tests that neurologists use to find out if a child is deaf. Rarely there are other prob- lems within the brain in receiv- ing language and one must be certain that the child under- stands language as opposed to just hearing noise. But if there is no evidence of deafness, and particularly if receptive lan- guage is present, you don't have much to worry about. In extremely rare instances, a child may be born with some defect of the vocal cords and has a mechanical problem in Virgo (Ang. 23 Sept.

Safe and sane is your policy today security rather than adventure. Last minute ad- justments are possible. After age 4 or certainly by- age 5, if the child does not start speaking a very extensive neur- ological examination needs to be carried out But let me re- peat again that for children below 4 years of age who have not started speaking but are bright and normal in other re- spects and demonstrate lan- guage receptivity, the best thing is to stop worrying about it and let the-child develop normally.

The temptation to lay down the ace of dubs was great, but West paused to count. Declarer had five heart tricks and a diamond. He was marked by the auc- tion with the ace4dng of spades, to bring his total to eight tricks. Also, he had shown up with nine cards in the red suits, leaving 1dm with only four in the blacks.

BlONDIE-By Chic Young The earth's age Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Craig Houeh, age 12, of Lancaster, Fa., for his question: Is it true that the earth is more than a million years old? It took the earth more than a million years to fill her wat- ery oceans. This big job had to be finished before tba first little plants and animal? could survive. And they arrived more than abfllion years ago. Some of the lovely ok! mountains in Pennsylvania started growing 200 million years ago. These ancient events ten us that our wondrous planet is indeed very, very much older than one mil- lion years. No doubt you hava seen those glamorous portraits of the earth, taken from outer space. Its round globe is tinted with brown-green continents and frosty ice caps, set .in the sparkling silver blue seas. Surely, you would think, -this is the space portrait of a gor- geous young planet. We get the same idea when we behold its beauties from down here on the ground. True, tte world looks what old and worn at sum- mer's end, when the wide doors is strewn with fallen [eaves and faded flowers. But in a few short months, spring comes, and our wintery old world is renewed and becomes a lovely young lady or so it seems. As you know, a lovely lady often strives very hard indeed to conceal her true age. So it is with the earth. Generations of scfentists strained their grains to solve this and they still cannot give the exact age of the earth. The evidence is there, most of it in buried rocks. But it is con- cealed very cunningly M sec- ret codes. For example, scientists learn- ed that the sea is getting salt- ier, year by year. A century ago, they used this data to es- timate the age of the oceans. It took the sea many millions of years to steal all its salts Today in history By THE CANADIAN PRESS Benito Juarez, revolution- ary founder of modern Mex- ico, died 101 years ago to- 66. A pure-blood Indian, Juarez became the governor of Oaxaca at the age of 41, and be took part in the mili- tary and political turmoil of the mid-century. A year after Juarez was elected president, the French em- peror sent an army to in- stall an Austrian prince as 'ruler and Juarez led a suc- cessful resistance. He died during the rebellion of Por- firio Diaz, who was against his reelection as president from the land. And obviously the earth must be older than its oceans. In the 1800s, a geologist trac- ed the havoc left by ancient glaciers. In the last million years, four ke ages came and went in our hemisphere. Evi- dence of earlier ice ages was found elsewhere. One occurr- ed SOD million years ago. Ob- viously the earth is older than its ke ages. Modern scientists are using newer methods to solve the well-kept secret. For example, most rocks radioactive contain traces of materials that decay at a fixed rate. By mea- suring these slight but depen- dable changes it is possible to estimate the age of ancient rocks. The oldest rocks found so far were formed three and a half billion years ago. Scien- tists estimate that the earth must bs a billion years older than its oldest surviving rocks. So our best guess e that our planet has celebrated 4500 mil- lion birthdays, which adds up to four and a half billion years. Another line of investigation, strange to say, is out in space. The sun, its planets and their satellites are related in an or- derly system. A lot of evidence, a .lot of common sense, indicates that the whole thing originated at more or less the time. In this case, the earth's crust would be tie same age as the parts of the original surface may be exposed or near the surface. As you know, scien- tists are very eager to date these ancient lunar rocks. If some prove to be oldar than four and a half billion years, then most likely our glamorous earth is even older than we thought.
