**age Six (ARK.) STAR DrLamb Teenage girl is too tall Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. News Briefs Television Logs DEAR DR. LAMB - I read your column about the woman who was worried about her children growing up to be too short. My problem is just the opposite. I'm almost five-feet nine and in the eighth grade. Whenever I meet someone 1 always dread K. because the first impression they must luive is, "Gosh, she s tali." Or, "Is she really m the eighth grade?" It has caused me to be very self- conscious and have an inferiority complex. To keep from standing out in a crowd I stoop, crouch, and whatever else to make myself shorter. Can you help me to get over this problem? Is there anything that can be done? DEAR READER - Yes, something can be done to stop growth. First you should have a careful medical examination I) y an c n d o c r i ri o I o g i s I (gland specialist) to be sure you have no medical disorder that needs treatment. If everything is normal and it is just a matter of coming into this world with a blueprint, for a tall body, then you can be given hormones that will stop the process. The length of the legs are a major factor in how tall a person is. Within the shaft of the thigh bone, for example, there is a zone of cartilage just like a round circular cross section of the bone. It keeps growing and the outer layer of the cartilage disk calcifies and becomes part of the main : shaft of (he thigh bone. Cartilage grows, but calcified none does not. When you begin to mature sexually the sex hormones cause the cartilage disk to calcify. The long bones then quit growing. This, incidentally, is why doctors don't like to give sex hormones to either boys or girls before they have completed the growth of the long bones. It can stunt their growth. So, you can take female hormones and stop the growth of your long bones and markedly slow or stop your continued growth. You would still be a fairly tall girl. The next question that comes up is, do birth control piils stop growth in young girls? By the time Hie ovaries are active enough to produce ovum and cause the possibility of pregnancy they are already producing a lot of estrogen. This effect will already have occurred, and the small amount of female hormones in the birth control pill won't be important then from a growth standpoint. It follows that a girl who is reasonably mature and having regular cycles should be at the stage where the long bones will have stopped growing. Now, about that stooping and crouching. That can be a verv unhealthy habit. The bad posture that develops can deform your chest cage. The round shoulders and slouched posture are not going to make you very attractive. Part of a woman's good figure is dependent upon posture. Besides that, it can affect the full capacity of your lungs to expand. This will compromise your exercise capacity. It will become more and more important as life goes on. This is a common reaction in tall people, but it is a real mistake. Boys mature later and continue to grow longer that?girls, because they develop slower sexually than girls, as a group. A girl may be mature endocrine-wise in her early teens, but a boy may not be until his early 20s. There is quite an individual variation in time span, however.

"You can't work all the • time," Ford said Sunday evening in disclosing that he had played tennis on Saturday on the White House courts. Ford, who played 4% hours of golf on Sunday, said he and his chief of staff, Alexander M. Haig Jr., had teamed up in the tennis match to play Dr. William Lukash, the White House physician, and Dave Hume Kennerly, the White House photographer. JERUSALEM (AP) - Rabbi Baruch Korff, a supporter of former President Richard M. Nixon, says he's establishing an international "Nixon Justice Fund." Korff, who formed a committee to defend Nixon while he was still in the White House, said the fund would help pay Nixon's legal fees. The rabbi, who is in Jerusalem for the Jewish New Year, said on Sunday he had talked to Nixon by telephone last week and the former president said it was hard for him to accept President Ford's pardon. "The only difficulty is for an innocent man to accept a pardon," Korff said Nixon told him. Congress expected defense bill okay By JIM ADAMS Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Congress is expected to approve a record $82.6-billion defense bill this week, act on foreign aid and take up a health manpower bill that Senate Republicans claim "establishes a domestic draft." The defense uill, up for House action today, is the biggest single appropriation bill ever put before Congress, even after a $4.4-billion cut from administration requests. When House-Senate conferees agreed to the $82,6-billion compromise last week, Sen. John L. McClellan, D-Ark., said the cut should mean an actual $2.6-billion spending cut, and "should have an important impact on reducing inflation." The cuts include a $900 million slice off requested military aid for South Vietnam, cut to $700 million from $1.6 billion. But the Pentagon gets full fund- ing for the new Bl advanced bomber and Trident long-range missile-firing submarine. A controversial $5-billion, five-year bill denounced by critics as a domestic draft is expected to get a Senate vote by mid-week. It provides federal aid for programs to produce more doctors, nurses and other professionals, including scholarships that must be repaid with service in doctor-short rural and intercity areas. Republicans on the Senate committee that produced the bill said such required service violates private enterprise. They vowed to try on the Senate floor to cut out the requirement and reduce the $5 billion. I^ater in the week, the Senate is to act on a $2.5-billion foreign aid authorization that would phase out U.S. aid to Korea and provide Middle East aid stemming from the cease-fire there. VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) James Meredith, who is trying to qualify as independent candidate for Congress, has completed a 50-mile, overnight hike from Jackson to Vicksburg to promote voter registration. Meredith, who was wounded by gunfire on a similar march in 1966, walked into Vicksburg on Sunday. He was wearing boots that carried him on some earlier marches.

WIN AT BRIDGE 'How?' is nitty-gritty question Fot Tuesday, Sept. 24,19?4 ARIES (March 21-April 19) Stem methods in dealing with others will achieve little for you at this time. On the other hand, consideration and kindness work wonders. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Your attitude Is apt to be a bit too negative early in the day. Things you will do will come hard. Later, you'll get back in the groove. GEMINI (May 21 .June 20) Don't expect another to cover your obligations for you. You'll be disappointed if you do. Stand tall on your own two feet. CANCER (June 21-July 22) After you decide upon something, stick to your decision. Don't plague yourself with self-doubts. Things will work out fine. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You still tend to feel you are being put upon by another. This may be true, but it's a burden you can shoulder easily. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Someone you'll be running into is a friend of a good contact you need. Even though you don't like this person, be charming. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You will have to tackle a little extra domestic responsibility now, but the member of your family you're doing it for truly appreciates it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Try to associate with those your age or younger today. You won't quite get it on being in the company of elders. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23- Dec. 21) If you're going to be out shopping, it's time you treated yourself to something you feel would enhance your image. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today's companion is apt to be a bit dour and fickle. It's going to be up to you to keep everything on the lighter side. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You're going to neglect something you should be doing because it's a trifle tough. It will be just as hard later when you won't be able to dodge it. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Give someone you know only casually a chance to redeem herself in your eyes. Don't judge her on one unpleasant incident. your birthday Sept. 24, 1974 Of the many important things you do this year, the achievement of one goal willdominate all the rest. It will prove to be a very ambitious undertaking. Monday Night 6:00 Villa Alegre •).

The controversial issue also is to be taken up by the Senate Judiciary Committee'ssubcomd mittee on criminal laws and procedures at hearings on Oct. i and 2. Atty. Gen. William B. Saxbe and FBI Director Clarence M. Kelley ire to be among the witnesses. A recently filed brief by Solicitor General Robert H. Bork in the case of Igor A. Ivanov, the convicted spy, agrees that issues raised in his appeal should be decided by the Supreme Court. As stated by Bork, a principal issue in the case is whether it is constitutionally permissible to conduct warrantless electronic surveillance for the purpose of gathering foreign intelligence information. Bork's brief argues that "a president through his attorney general may authorize electronic surveillance without prior judicial approval under his constitutional authority to conduct foreign relations and to protect the national security." However, legislation in- troduced by Sens. Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis., and Sam J. Ervin Jr., D-N.C., would prohibit government wiretaps or electronic surveillance for any purpose without prior approval of a court. The hearings of the Senate subcommittee will be on this bill, although Chairman John L. McClellan, D-Ark., has indicated he thinks congressional action should await a Supreme Court ruling. Nearly a month ago Nelson and Ervin offered their bill as an amendment to an appropriation measure for the Justice Department, but they withdrew it after McClellan agreed to schedule hearings on it.
