Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've been reading your column for years. You make a lot of sense. But It was your com- ments on marriage a few weeks ago on you rradio show that made me sit down and write to you. As a woman who has suffered with mother-in-law trouble (or over 20 years, I can tell you, Ann, your remarks were absolutely the best I've ever heard on the subject. My only regret is that my husband and his mother weren't sitting in the same room with me when you said it. I know they both-read your column religiously. Would you do me and millions of other women who are in my shoes a big favor and print it in your column? Oak Park Listener And Reader DEAR OAK: Several listeners have asked me to repeat In print what I said on the radio. I do so with pleasure: If I could hand every newly-married couple a framed motto as a wedding gilt, it would say this: "Your first allegiance is to each other. Let no man or woman come between you." I am not suggesting that the parents of newly-married coup- les join the Foreign Legion. What I AM saying is that the man who is unwilling to put his wife before his mother is not sufficiently mature for marriage. By the same token, the woman who is unable to put her husband before her father and mother is not grown up enough to be a wile. Realigning loyalties can be agonizing, particu- larly when a parent is involved. Feelings of guilt can play havo: when a choice must be made between two people we Jove. The mature son or daughter does not feel that marriage Imposes such a choice; there are no pangs of guilt attached to leaving momma and poppa. The mature parent prepares his child to be a central figure in another family. Too often the parent who refuses to let go and insists "my child needs me" is twisting the facia. What he MEANS is, "I need my child." A mature person recognizes the different kinds of love. It is possible to love and at the same time a wife, a mother, a sister and a grandmother, cherry pie, football, Lincoln, Rembrandt, and rock music. But we don't love them all in the same way. The love between a husband and wife is unique. It should be a combination of admiration, respect, physical desire, mutual interests and mutual goals. In a successful marriage the wife is the number one person in her husband's life, and he oc- cupies the same place in hers and no one can come between them. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm an 18-year-old girl and I spend half my time washing my hair. It's long and thick and beautiful, but to keep it that way I have to shampoo it at least once a day. If I wash my hair in the morning it's dirty by dinner time. If I wash it in the evening it's dirty by morning. I've tried every shampoo, rinse, and soap on the market but nothing helps. Any suggestions? Greasy In New England DEAR G.: I checked with beauticians and skin special- ists and they seem to think the problem isn't your hair but your head. You have a strong preoccupation with your crown- ing glory. It doesn't really need all that shampooing but you have a compulsion to wash it, regardless. I'm sure you won't care for my answer, but here it is. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "You're lucky you didn't have 1o go outside today it's a lousy RINGOWEDNESDAY AT 8 P.M. LETHBRIDGE FISH I GAME ASSOC.

BRODV New York Times Service NEW YORK A long-term 3ritish study of more than births has shown that jabies weighing less at birth han Uley should are more likely ,o suffer from a variety of edu- cational and behavioral deficits by the time they reach school age. The deleterious effects of low )irth weight were seen in all social classes, although they vere most pronounced in the ower socio-economic groups, Dr. Nevil Butler said here this veek at a meeting sponsored by the National Foundation- march of dimes. Butler, a professor of child lealth at the University of Bris- who Is a director of the Jrilish birth study, said that deficits were noted in such areas as reading, number work and copying ability. The low birth weight children were also more likely to be fidgety and clumsy and (o maie a poor iocial adjustment in school. Such low hirtli weight babies are said to be "small-for- date." They experienced intrau- erine growth retardation, or Labor figures released EDMONTON (CPI There were women working in Alberta during 1971, a 70.1 per cent increase compared with a provincial report said here. The statistical report on wo- men in the provincial labor force was compiled by the Provincial Manpower and Lab- or Department's Research Di- vision. In 1970, women made up 70.5 per cent of all persons In cleri- cal positions and 56.2 per cent of those in service occupations, the study showed. "Also, in 1971, the average percentage difference in men's over women's salaries for all occupational categories in Al- berta was 27.2 per cent." Irene Mncfii-cgor, Alberta Women's Bureau director, said there has betn a growing de- mand for the Information on women in the labor force. "To this point we've only had the prairies figures through statistics Canada nnd wo felt It was lime we had the specific Alberta facts so we could as- sess women's role in tho Alber- ta labor force." Tho Information, under head- Ings ranging from the partici- pation of women in (he working world to weekly nnd annual earnings, Is available from the deportment, on request. malnutrition in the womb, and as a result weigh less than the average baby does bom after the same number of weeks of pregnancy. A number of studies, several of which were described at the meeting here, have shown that small-for-date babies are most often bom to mothers who are poorly nourished during preg- nancy. Other Important causes ol lowered birth weight include toxemia (high blood pressure) and cigarette smoking during pregnancy. Small-for-date bal> ies are more than twice as com- mon among mothers of low socio-economic groups. Experiment with laboratory animals and studies of human infants who died have shown that malnutrition before birth and during the first months of life can result in fewer than normal brain cells. Since brain cell number is fixed early in life, the deficit caused by pre- natal malnutrition is believed to have a permanent effect on the child's brain functions. There are now several efforts under way both here and in other countries to see if improvement in the mother's nutrition during pregnancy can diminish her baby's chance of being small for-date. One such study being conduct- ed in four rural Guatamalan villages has for exam- ple, that supplementing the mother's diet with a high-calor- ie drink during pregnancy re- sults in a proportionate increase in the baby's birth weight. Dr. Jean-Pierre Habicht of the Institute of Nutrition of Central America and Panama said that for every extra calories consumed by the moth- er during her pregnancy, the baby's birth weight was in- creased by an average of two ounces.
