(AP) "You've come a long way. baby" is more than a sign on the white shirts worn by the girls who play the Virginia Slims professional tennis cir- cuit.

"That's not true I was wearing a thin dress and I would have been embarrassed if anything had shov.n through But I ghmk the primary consideration is to be com- fortable. A lot of the girls don't wear bras." This revelation may come as a shock to the staild admin- istrators of the sport, who have attempted to keep (he game in corsets and high-but- ton shoes.

"It was ridiculous." Miss Heldman said the girls who shun the upper under- garments on the tennis court include Rosemary Casals, Kris Kemmer and Ingrid Bentzer. Miss Bentzer, a blonde Swede, drew a rebuke from U.S. tennis fathers two years ago for appearing at Forest Hills in what the officials said was a see-through dress. They made her change, and Ingrid was enraged. "There was nothing pro- vocative about the dress at she said. "It only looked like a see-through dress.

I j can't stand bigots who make downgrading remarks about certain ethnic groups. But I find myself reluctant to say anything for fear of starting an argument or incurring the wrath of a person I don't know well. I belong to a minority group but one would not know it by looking at me. Occasionally someone will say something unflattering about my people and I feel a little guilty re- maining silent. My husband says my restraint is a sign of good manners. What do you say? In Maryland DEAR Q.: Silence isn't al- ways golden. Sometimes it's just yellow. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You are wrong. To have a brown eyed child, at least one of the parents must have brown eyes because the gene producing brown eyes is domi- nant. .uy authorities are: J. E. Wodsedalek. General Zoology, C. A. ViUe, Biology, D. Marsland, Principles of Modern Biology. What is YOUR authority, Ann Landers? Assistant Prof. Of Genetics Who Wishes To Remain Anonymous Al- though I Am Signing This Letter DEAR PROFESSOR: I will, of course, respect your wish for anonymity. First because you-requested it, and second because I would not humiliate you by pointing out that your literature is woefully out of date. You are wrong. My authority is Dr. Carl Witkop, former haad of the genetics branch of The Na- tional Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Dr. Witkop says: "In the early days of genetics it was believed that the eye color was determined by a single pair of genes. We now know that this is incorrect and that eye color is transmitted by at least three genes. In the vast majority of cases, two blue eyed parents will produce a blue-eyed child. But it is now an established fact that two blue-eyed parents can pro- duce a brown-eyed child." Your apologies are accept- ed. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'd like to say a word to "Born Loser" because I. too, was the ugly duckling in our fam- ily. My older sister inherited all the looks and personality. No one could believe we were related. My mother didn't bother much with me. I was plain- looking and overweight, so there was no use wasting time on a girl who was such a mess. My father wanted a boy and I was supposed to be it. When I wasn't, he got even by ignoiing me. It was my wonderful eighth- grade teacher who gave me a sense of personal worth. Shs encouraged me to study hard and gain recognition through achievement and kindness to others. I won a scholarship, lost weight and began to feel like somebody. In my last year of college I married a wonderful young man. We have a beautiful family and a good life. Things didn't go too well for my sister. She married a handsome, lazy skirtchaser and they have been separated three times The years of un- happiness show. She has got- ten heavy and developed some physical problems because of her weight. I hope you will print this letter so "Born Loser" will know it's a terrible mistake to count herself out because she got off to a bad start. She can come from behind and win if she has the will to do it. I Did DEAR SECRETARIAT: Thanks for the word from the feedbox. Beautiful! Just Beau- tiful! DEAR ANN LANDERS: Thank you for your compas- sion toward the retarded child. Since I am a worker in the vineyard I hope you will print my letter. It has been my experience in meeting with thousands of parents of retarded children that they often find them- selves initially traumatized by the discovery that their child is handicapped. Then they commence to shop around for clinics and pe- diatricians who will give them the answers they want. Some parents have a ten- dency to minimize their child's limitations. They ex- pect him to go to college, find a job and get married. Others have a tendency to maximize. They are con- vinced that their child must In an institution for the rest of his hie. The ma- jority of retarded individ- uals do not fall into either category. We have found that when parents band together and disucss these problems they develop a more realistic per- spective. They recover from the initial trauma and view their offspring as a special child who needs affection, respect, and above all, a real- istic understanding of his problem. Social Worker. Family planning arrives in Carribean SANTO DOMINGO (Reuter) The government of the Do- minican Republic is conducting a birth-control program aimed at slowing down one of the se- verest population explosions in the Americas. The republic, which shares the Caribbean island of Hispa- mola with Haiti, has one of the fastest rates of demographic growth in the Western Hemi- sphere at 3.4 per cent a year. The government's program was launched in February, 1968, and as a result, there are at least 60 family planning clinics in the Dominican Republic now, six of them in this capital. Ths program is administered by the National Council of Pop- ulation and Family, and since I its work began, more than 000 women have registered for help in' planning their families. They are able to receive, free of charge, contraceptive pills, inter-uterine device, vaginal foams or condoms. But non-re- versible methods of con- traception, such as vasectomy and sterilization, are not avail- able. TEACH BY RADIO The council, and the Domini- can Association for Family wel- fare, produce a radio program which is broadcast by 13 sta- tions around the country for one hour every day, with the object of informing people in rural areas of family planning possi- bilities. A team of social workers is carrying out an education cam- paign on a national scale using lectures, teach-ins, short courses and group meetings. About women between 14 and 44 are expected to come into the scheme by next year, representing 20 per cent of their age group. Some cities' populations in the Dominican Republic have grown oy more chan 100 per cent in the last 10 years putting a strain on health se> vices. The council aims at reducing the birth rate to 28 per thou- sand in the next eight years. The current rate is 48 per thousand, which means that be- tween and chil- dren are born each year. Problems likely to arise if the population increase is not de- celerated are shortages of hous- ing, police, electricity and wa- ter, schools, hospitals, transport facilities, and worsening of pol- lution in cities, the program di- rectors say.
