Phone 327-2805 DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have a problem I can't handle alone, and f m scared to death. I can't talk to anybody because I am too ashamed. I know I need help but I don't know where to turn. I made a big mistake a while back and I think I have V.D. A few weeks ago I noticed these sores around my mouth and on certain intimate parts of my body. They itch like crazy and I am in agony. I don't know much about VD. but from what I have heard I'm pretty sure I have it. If I tell my parents they will kill me. I can't go to our family doctor because I'm afraid he'll tell them. Also, I have no money to pay a doctor so please don't suggest that I look in the phone book and go to one who doesn't know me. Please, Ann, do a million kids a favor and print some information on V.D. What are the symptoms? Is it contagious? If my little sister or brother caught it from me I'd kill myself. Is there any place a teen-ager can go for treatment without his parents knowing? Is there a free clinic in Los Angeles? Please, Ann, I am pleading for help and hurry up, every day is like a year. - Burned Bad Dear B: I urge you and anyone else who reads this column (teen-ager or adult) who suspects he has V.D. - either gonorrhea or syphilis - to go at once to the County or City Health Department Clinic. You will be tested free of charge and treated. No punitive action will be taken and in most cities your parents will not be notified. V.D. has reached epidemic proportions in our country - the worst since the end of World War II. Dr. McKeraie-Pollack, Medical Director of the American Social Health Association, stated recently that approximately a million and a half people are presently being treated for V.D., but millions more have it. The doctor said, "It is possible that one woman in every ten between 18 and 24 (in the United States) may have gonorrhea and not know it. Many of these women will never be mothers because this disease can result in sterility." Penicillin can almost always cure both gonorrhea and syphilis any time before the final destruction sets in. Here are the symptoms: Gonorrhea produces an obvious discharge from the male and only a rrild discharge in the female. Burning on urination is a frequent symptom for both. In advanced cases of gonorrhea, females experience pain in the lower abdomen. In some advanced cases of gonorrhea a swelling of the joints is noticed,' which indicates the presence of gonorrheal arthritis. Syphilis is contagious only if the lesions are active - that is, if the sores are moist. The lesions usually appear first at the point of infection - most frequently in the genital area and around the mouth. These sores resemble cold sores and resist healing. After the sores disappear no other symptoms may show up for several years. Within eight or ten years, however, untreated syphilis may destroy the brain cells and produce blindness and insanity. The American Social Health Assn. estimates that close to a million people in the U.S. are walking around with non-infectious syphilis. These people desperately need treatment. Some medical studies have shown that a modest percentage of syphils disappears without treatment, but only a fool would take a chance by assuming that he will fall into that category. I urge everyone who suspects he has V.D. to get treatment immediately and speak openly about his contacts. This is not finking on a friend. It is performing a service. Don't forget-that "friend" gave you a disease that could have ruined your life. Do what you can to keep him from giving it to someone else. 'Not pregnanf has baby GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) -Told three months ago she was not pregnant, Mrs. Lee Baker thought she was having a kidney attack when she went to the emergency room of a Grand Forks hospital. Two hours later she gave birth to her first child, a 4Vi-pound boy. "I probably sound like the dumbest person on earth," she said. The 33-year-old woman said she had continual stomach trouble throughout the winter and was treated by a doctor in December. She said she thought she might have an ulcer, but joked that she might be pregnant. Married for five years, Lee and May Baker had been told their chances to have a baby were slim, and they had considered adopting a child. 426 13th STREET NORTH :l: ..

The homemaker BY ELIZABETH BARTMAN, DISTRICT HOME ECONOMIST Use Credit With Care "A penny saved is a penny earned" is sill a wise rule for money management. He who follows this precept, will have money to draw on for unexpected expenses. Credit experts have claimed that It is unrealistic for a person to save money before buying something. Since credit costs money - up to 18 per cent in some cases, that statement needs to be considered on the grounds of who is making the statement - the lender or the buyer. Credit is a way of having now and paying later. This may be important to you, but remember that you will have to pay later, and pay more for it too. Wisely used credit can help you get new products and services that are needed for living. Misused, credit can lead to problems and serious money troubles. Since consumer credit is in such common use we cannot afford to be ignorant of how to use it nor misuse it. The various credit card schemes we see widely advertised these days basically involve a loan to the consumer. Although you find these advantageous, your credit must be used wisely. In a few words here is bow:  Know the kinds of credit available to you.  Know when it is wise or unwise to use credit.  Shop to learn the lowest cost of credit to you. Remember it is your money which you are using.  Understand the credit contract before you sign. Obtain information for your use of consumer credit from either of two official sources. Reliable information can be had from - Supervisor of Consumer Credit, Room C-407, Terr race Building, Edmonton 6, Alberta. Specific information from this office includes a number of acts. These are Conditional Sales Act, Credit and Loan, Agreements Act, Direct Sales Cancellation Act, Exemption Act, Seizure Act as well as that of Unconscionable Transactions. Obtain the consumer's handbook titled Consumer Credit. It is a publication of the Department fo Consumer and Corporate Affairs, and is available upon request from my office in the Provincial Administration Building. Some Points To Remember. When the credit charge is added to the purchase price, and the total is repaid in equal monthly payments the actual cost of borrowing at 4 per cent per year is 7.4 per cent, at 6 per cent per year is 11.1 per cent, at 8 per cent per year is 14.8 per cent. When the credit charges are made on the unpaid balance only, at a percentage rate per month, multiply by 12 for the true annual interest rate. That means that 1 per cent per month on the unpaid balance is 12 per cent true annual interest. Your banker is a good man to see. Ask him what will be the effective rate of interest if you make repayments in regular small amounts over a cer* tain period of time. You are entitled to request a lower interest rate when you make a large down payment.
