Ervin, photo By ALTON IH.AKESI.KE NEW YORK (AP) Children are not cocktails that need shaking to be good, a physician warns. Angrily seizing and shaking a "bad" infant or youngster can cause brain dam- age, broken bones, or even death, writes Dr. Jolm Caffey of Pittsburgh. Some .injuries are like those from "whiplash" in automobile collisions. Dr. Caffey tolls of one pow- erful 233-pound nursemaid who was blamed for killing three In- fants and injuring or maiming 12 others over an eight-year period. The incidents all occurred when she was taking care of youngsters in middle-class fam- ilies who gave their children expert pecV.atrician's care. The nurse was considered to be kind to children, In another instance, the same woman caused a wluplash neck injury in a baby whose back she pounded to "burp" him. HAPPEN DAILY "Shakings are generally con- sidered innocuous by both par- ents and Dr. Caf- fey writes in the American Journal of Diseases of Children. But he cites 27 recorded case, of injury or c'oatli from shak- ings, and thinks this "is only an infinitesimal portion of the un- counted thousands of moderate unadmitted, undetected and un recorded whiplash shakings which probably occur ever; day in the United States." An infant or child's head quite large relative to its weal neck muscles, and violent shak ing can cause neck injuries o burst blood vessels in the younj irain. Bones of legs or arms :an be broken from the shear- tig action of tho movements, )r.- Caffey says. Permanent damage to brain ir eyes, mental retardation or death can result. "Many well Mentioned, re- sponsible parents, who think loUiing of giving a small child a 'good shaking' or a series of such shakings, would not Iream of giving their children scries of 'good' blows or punches on the head." MAY BE WORSE Yet the cumulative effects of repeated mild or moderate ivhiplash shakings of the head, though inapparent clinically, may be far more grave than single, even if heavy, blows or punches to the Dr. Cat- fey says. Kids get shaken for mild or worse disobedience, sometimes to dislodge food caught in the throat, or to stop spells ol whin- ing or crying. Dr. Caffey also cautions ahont the other accepted prac- tices that shake the infant's head, such as tossing the baby into the air, giving him a vio- lent ride while he sits astride the parent's ankle, holding tho infant by his ankles and swing- ing Mm around ttirough the air, spinning until he becomes dizzy, or other rough play. He also casts a doubtful eye on many "toys and recreational contraptions which generate whiplash shakes and jolts to the head." "The recurrent exposure to the snowmobile probably offers the greatest hazard to infantile brains and he says. Chubby is beautiful in Egypt by e ivonien s CAIRO fRenter) Egypt- ian men, it seems, like their women buxom and downright fat. The fat look, however, seems to bft getting out of hand with the introduction of new foods! uf fs to put on hi, inc I udi ng an He m called fattening jam. Tho Egyptian Gazette, a Cairo English-language news- paper which often takes up social hues, carried an edi- torial on the matter headed: WeeWhimsvl "Fattening Them Up." The editorial writer of the Gazette is obviously out of step with other Egyptian men. because he finds the idea of fatlr-ning women clearly un- pleasant. He wrote: "Tlie appearance of fattening jams on the mar- ket, backed by a widespread advertising campaign exhort- ing women to transform themselves into buxom, fleshy creatures, is a somewhat sur- prising and alarming trend." The Gazette writer said the fatty trend was even more surprising because many Egyptian women have been Europeanizing their ward- robes with patterns straight out of imported fashion maga- zines which push Ihe long, sleek look rattier than tlie short and round. "Bearing in mind that breast enlargement tech- niques in Europe arc still not very succesful, it is doubtful whether these jams will do more, than produce obese women with the lumps, in all probability in the wrong place." .SIGN 01' HEALTH Many of the poorer peasant women in Egypt equate fat- ness with health. If you are fat, you arc healthy, and if you lose weight, you are losing your health. This is the way many i villagers think, and fattening jam will no doubt do a roar- ing trade with less-educated women. Om Kalthoum. Egypt's most famous woman singer, is substantially built, as are most of the other women ac- tresses and singers. The tall, siim daughter "f a foreign correspondent in Cairo was fold during a visit to the market area 111 at she needed to put on more weight. A great deal of Egyptian food is starchy and certainly helps the or without fattening jam. At the recent annual dinner' meeting of the Lethbridge Country Club Indies, Mrs. E.
