Thundoy, 14, 1971 THl LITHMIOOI MftAlP Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was not only surprised but disappointed when I read your statement that people in this day and age who have extremely large fam- ilies are "trying to prove something." What do you consider an "extremely large Ten children? Eight? Six? Since you had only one child, maybe you think TWO is "ex- tremely large And how nice of you to have offered an explanation for those of us who have "ex- tremely families. My husband and I appreciated that very much. You see, we didn't know why we had all these kids. Actuallv, we thought we loved children, but according to you, that wasn't the reason at all. I feel you owe an apology to the countless readers who look to you for moral sup- port and guidance and good common sense. You let us down badly with that one Wichita Parents Who Love Them All DEAR PARENTS. You are right. My typewriter got ahead of my brain when I pounded out that statement and I am sorry. My apologies to all parents of large fam- ilies who "love them all DEAR ANN LANDERS' What do you think of the following situation? Alice was married to Bob for 16 years. They had three chil- dren. Bob became involved a young girl in his of- fice. He divorced Alice in Mexico and married the girl. That marriage lasted two years. The girl divorced Bob for another man. The following year Bob mar- ried another young bird He died three months later of a beart attack Alice now refers to herself as "a widow." I'd like your comment. Watching From The Sidelines DEAR WATCHING Id say Alice has probably bad plenty of heartache in her life and she dcesn't need more. If she wants to call herself a widow, I can't see that it's any of my business Or yours, either What's YOUR problem, honey'' DEAR ANN LANDERS: I agree with you that when bright and interesting people get together, it is not un- common (or rude) for them to interrupt one another This makes for lively conversa- tion. But what about the bores who interrupt just because they want the floor7 We have such a person in our office. No matter what the topic, when no one is talking to her, she butts in and takes over. More than once she has derailed a fascinating story to mouth some nonsense about her husband or her dog. How does one silence such a clattertrap? Bugged In Boise DEAR BUGGED: There IS a way. The minute she opens her yours. Say, "Please don't interrupt Bill. We're all fascinated with his If you are deter- mined, there's no way she can get in there with her hus- band and her dog. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Regarding that young man who didn't know how to tell his fiancee her neck was dirty: You said it could be her jewellry. Another pos- sibility is a skin pigmenta- tion problem. I know because I have it. It used to be em- barrassing when people stared at my neck. I knew they were wondering why 1 didn't wash it. I was tempted to say. "Look, it's a skin de- but in recent years I've become accustomed to it and it doesn't bother me. Please inform your readers not to jump to conclusions. A discolored neck doesn't ne- cessarily mean the girl doesn't care for soap and wa- Collar Henrietta DEAR HEN- Right you are In fact there's a two- bit word for that skin prob- lem. It is "poikilodenna."

Physicians, hospitals, and professionals are disrupting j families by separating mem-' bers at times when they should I be together. Confining mothers in hospitals away from their families at childbirth is one example, he said. Social workers who advise parents to put children into in- stitutions rather than raising them with the family also are i guilty, he said. Dr. Mendelshohn advised delegates to strengthen fami- lies. Any society that's going to survive will have strong i families and weak institutions, he said. j "We get the kids into day care centres by forcing the, mothers of the poor to go to 1 work to survive: and the rich, into nursery schools by brain- washing the mothers to work to fulfill he said.

Mrs. Moon, from Toronto, is chairman of the committee for child restraint systems for the Consumer Association of Canada And she re- cently received a Local Initiatives P r o g r am grant to research child car- safety guidelines. She told the Vancouver au- dience new testing procedures should mean the seats which remain on the market will be relatively safe. At present, she said, the CAC ojily recommends two types of child's car seat, one by General Motors for babies up to 20 pounds and a Ford model for children up to 50 pounds. Mrs. Moon said that in Canada adopted the bulk of United States regulations that require any child's car seat to withstand a static pull. This has cleared the Ca- nadian marketplace of seats that collapse when brakes suddenly applied. But many of those meet this test still fail in a 30-rnile-an-hour collision with a fixed object. She said new dynamic tast- ing, which measures the travel of a dummy's head in test accidents, will lead to standards that will eliminate more poorly-made seats. And she warns that using seat adult seat restrain chil- dren exposes them to special hazards such as abdominal damage. Even so, the risk of abdominal injury, which can be repaired, is better than ir- repairable brain damage if a child's head slams into dashboard. The types of children's re- straints which appear to be acceptable are, for babies, a rear-facing carrier somewhat like an astronaut's couch and. for larger toddlers, a two-part device consisting of a seat and an impact-absorbing shield in front of the child. However, she warns that some manufacturers have produced the latter type of seat, imitating the successful model without duplicating its qualities She said some researchers believe a five-point seat har- ness system also provides a fair amount of restraint when properly fitted. The child is held to the seat by belts over each shoulder, across the waist and between the legs. patients Dr- -Laura simms New York, said today she "diagnoses and treats human responses to health problems in a manner that promotes coping one.

"CARRIAGE HOUSE" 1224 3rd Ave. S. Phone 327-2565 or 327-2673 BANFF, Alta (CP) The age-old myth that only mar- riage and motherhood give pur- pose to a woman's life must be laid to rest, Judy LaMarsh, former -federal health minister, said here. It is a dying myth because it provides too little purpose to women's lives and because it has been outdated by an age when abortion and contracep- tion are used to save the plan- et trom overcrowding, she told the national convention of the Young Women's Christian Association. ''The idea that the supreme function of women is to assure the continuity of the human race now is obsolete. Dr. Simms is clinical depart- ment head, surgical nursing at the New York-Cornell Univer- sity Hospital and associate pro- fessor at the Cornell School of nursing She was talking to Canadian nurses, doctors and adminis- trators about experience with the 26 clinical nurse specialists at New York Hospital on the role of such nurses generally.
