Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta tint THI LITHMIOOI HMALC -18 Alcohol mothers risk fetus damage WASHINGTON Women who are chronic alco- holics during pregnancy risk bearing physically and mentally deficient offspring and sometimes even early death for these a team of Seattle pediatric researchers reports. They say the risk is suf- ficiently high that physicians should seriously consider rec- ommending pregnancy chronically alcoholic women. Dr. Kenneth Jones and sev- eral colleagues of the Univer- sity of Washington School of Medicine made the statements in a report This week to a joint meeting of the American Pediatric Ann Landers Dear Ann you have spoken up in behalf of telephone cab non- etc. And now will you please say a kind word for college students who like to sleep in the I'm a night person and always have been. I don't come alive until 11 00 a m I scheduled my classes so I could sleep late because it is sheer torture for me to get up in the morning. I live m a dorm and that's the rub Seme people around here pop out of bed at the crack of dawn. They think it's their God-given right to awaken the rest of the world. Then there's another problem. Every morning this week the goldarned phone has jarred me out of a sound sleep at a.m. At that miserable everyone else is in class or asleep. Since my room is closest to the phone I have to crawl out of bed and talk to some dizzy dame who is looking for a babysitter or struggling with some other earth-shattering problem. If this letter makes your column I promise you it will be tacked to hundreds of college bulletin boards from Maine to California and will have it framed for our dorm X- hausted Dear I'm glad you didn't ask for a solution to the because I don't have one. Earplugs might help some but until you can move out and share quarters with a couple of other night you'll have to put up with the Bub. THE BETTER HALF Dear Ann Our eight-year-old son and the girl next door have always played together. They rarely fight like most youngsters do and each is welcome in the other's home. Saturday afternoon they seemed especially quiet. I peeked in the room and found them playing The little girl was and he was her. I was so stunned I nearly fainted I told her to put on her clothes at once and go home. We had no idea our son was so advanced in thinking about sex. I phoned the little girl's mother that evening and told her exactly what happened. She took a very blase attitude. big she are naturally inquisitive. All kids explore. That's how they We are shocked. What do YOU say' L. L. D. Dear L. L. She's right. But children should be taught that their bodies are private and they must keep their clothes on when entertaining their friends youngsters should be in at frequent just to make sure they aren't into some mischief. Going to a Giving Or standing up in Even if you're already married Ann Landers's completely new Bride's will answer questions about today's weddings.

They described results of their latest research on what they call the alcohol In previously published pre- liminary the scientists have defined the syndrome as a pattern of altered growth and development observed among children of chronically alcoholic mothers and believed to have its origin within the womb itself. DEFECTS NOTED Manifestations of the condi- tion include limb and cardiovascular defects In their new the Seattle researchers say they now have evaluated the records of 23 offspring of chronically alcoholic mothers and data on a comparable number of offspring of non- alcoholic mothers. Among the offspring of the alcoholic 17 per cent died shortly after 32 per cent of the survivors considered to have the alcohol and 44 per cent had intelligence quotients of 79 or less at seven years of age. In among offspring of the non-alcoholic only two per cent died soon after none of the survivors showed symptoms and only nine per cent had IQs 79 or less at age seven por at reading WASHINGTON One million U.S. children aged 12 to 17 years cannot read even at the Grade-4 says a new federal report.

Mike a company said this week that although the company believes the batch of Enfalac has already been consumed it has recalled the cans through advertising in newspapers in the areas where the product was distributed. Mr. Burnett said a Thunder Bay woman took open cans of the product to the federal de- partment of health office in Belleville after her infant daughter became ill. The 33.3-ounce cans of liquid Enfalac were distributed in Thunder Winni- and Ottawa areas.

The homemaker Last week we covered the characteristics and care instructions of the natural fibres plus glass fibres from the man-made group. To continue from this we will discuss more of the man- made fibres the cellulose based group and the metallic group Today there are a great number of man-made fibres or synthetics and through technology and more fibres are being developed every day. This research has provided for us many fabrics suited to specific needs such as hard- wash and light- etc What would we do without To be more informed as let's review a few of these synthetic fibres their trademarks and special properties MAN-MADE FIBRES Acetate is the generic name for one group of fibres made from a cellulose base. is the material which composes the frame- work or cell walls of Trademarks for Acetate are and Qutilticell Acetate fibers and fabrics can be laundered by hand if caution is taken not to wring the it may be ironed on the wrong side of the fabric.

The trademarks include- and Zantrel. Special instructions are as for Rayon. Check labels for care instructions as care will depend on the other fibres with which it is blended in the fabric. Metallic Fibres. A third group of man-made fibers is other groups are and The only generic classification of this group is metallic. Trademarks include and mylar. These fibres do not tarnish and are washable when protected by a film Common uses include decorative fabrics and trimmings .When these fibres are used in fabrics that are they need no special care They also may be dry cleaned We will continue next week with the chemically made fiber group in which we find many common such as Nylon and Polyester CONFIDENTIALLY YOURS April 25th I am constantly on the alert for easy-to- use household products.

BUDDY New York Titan Service NEW YORK If parents could choose the sex of their there at undoubtedly be a disproportionate number of boys but the at birth would ultimately even according to new findings of a national survey released this weekend. The which ques- tioned married women about their sex preferences in indicated that most would prefer their first born to be a followed by a girl. in the United States at the survey indicates counter to the fears of the ability to select sex of offspring would not greatly distort the ultimate sex ratio of the population. The survey a part of the 1970 national fertility also indicate that at the time they were at least half of the currently married women preferred to leave sex detection to nature rather than use some new technology to predetermine the sex of their children. The national fertility first done in it based on a national random sample of married women under 45 years of age living in the United States. TEMPORARY The survey published in the current issue of the journal indicate that if sex selection were readily available and widely there would be a temporary per cent excess of male This would occur mainly because most women who have not yet had children would select a boy as their first causing a birth ratio of 189 boys to 100 girls. The ratio now is 105 boys to 100 girls. BALANCE as these women select girls as their second the sex ratio would' ultimately balance out.

The authors of the Dr Charles F. soliologist and associate director of the office of population research at Princeton and Ronald R. a research associate at the of Wisconsin's center for demography and point out certain pitfalls in their research that could alter the actual ratios. PREFER SONS One is the fact that men were not asked their preferences. Other less extensive surveys have indicated that men are more likely than women to prefer sons if given a choice. Since in selecting the sex of offspring husbands might be expected to participate with there may in fact result a greater proportion of male births than this study indicates. Another factor is that when the technology for sex selection becomes people may give more serious thought to their preferences and make different choices than they now indicate.
