Family Lib Our dysfunctional educators By Joanne and Lew Koch (Note: Today's column is written by Lew) Why do some children do poorly in school? Who's to blame — society, the school, the child, his family? Or is school failure a medical problem? "In the old days, writes Diane Divoky in the October issue of "Learning" magazine, "kids who didn't shape up were bad, obstreperous, slow, dumb. In the 1950s the schools discovered psychology, and the reason for kids not making it became emotional handicaps'. In the 1960s, the emphasis was sociological; failures were 'culturally deprived' or "disadvantaged.'" Now, in the 1970s we're saying that kids who don't do well have LD — learning disability or MBD, minimal brain dysfunction. Teachers, psychologists, pediatric consultants, neurolegists and even well-intentioned parents are running around pasting LD or MBD labels on as many kids as don't fit the stereotype of the perfect student. Ms. Divoky methodically analyzes the data: "In the fields of learning disabilities, sadly, ignorance seems to make for confidence, knowledge for uncertainty." The plain fact of the matter is that the measurements for judging LD or MBD labels are inadequate, invalid and even nonexistent. "The truth is that the learning disabled are whomever the diagnosticians want them to be," she writes, including kids who stutter, tease the family cat, have nightmares, kids who can't swim or don't like to date girls, kids who twiddle their hair, who are overtalkative and who have unrealistic goals. Why do we even want to label kids LD or MBDs? Ms. Divoky, using some conclusions from an unpublished federal report", puts her finger directly on the answer. r (It) diminishes the sense of guilt for all concerned. The term 'learning disability' has appeal because it implies a specific neurological condition for which no one can be held particularly responsible ... There is no implication of neglect, emotional disturbance, or improper training or education, nor does it imply a lack of motivation on the part (.'( the child. For these cosmetic reasons, it's a rather nice •< rm to have around ..." :io teachers urge parents of LD or MBD children to give ii-.tHi kids drugs, which then permits the teachers not to try HI teach those kids anything. To treat what are in fact social problems — nonreaders, .nonconformists, nonstudents — as medical problems," con- (-kides Ms. Divoky, "is to admit the bankruptcy of both the M-hoois and the society in finding real solutions." it's lime to remove the damaging and inaccurate brain u^s from children and demand from the schools at least v. hat we demand from the supermarket — truth in labeling. Mr. Richie is 95 -Afefecf- She shouldn't fleece sleeping sheep By Abigail Van Buren • 1«M by Th» Chicago Trtbun* DEAR ABBY: When I was a little girl, I remember seeing my mother tiptoe into the bedroom where my father was sleeping and she'd take some money out of his pants pocket. Now that I'm married, I do the same thing to my husband. Sometimes he misses what I took and sometimes he doesn't. My question: Is it wrong to take money this way? I get an allowance to run the house, but sometimes it's not enough. PICKPOCKET DEAR PICK: If you need more money than your husband gives you, ask him for it when he's awake. To fleece him when he's asleep should make you feel sheepish. DEAR ABBY: I will never be able to make amends to my wife for what I did to her, but if you choose my letter for your column it might keep someone else from making the same mistake. I'm an average, 33-year-old man, married for six years. We have one child. One night I went out alone and picked up a nice-looking girl in a bar. Believe me, she looked and acted as nice as any girl I had ever met. She was immaculate and ladylike. That girl gave me gonorrhea. I, in turn, infected my wife with such a severe case that she had to have a complete hysterectomy. She is only 30 years old, and now she'll never be able to have another child, and she wanted one so much. The doctor had to tell her the truth and it nearly broke her heart because she had never looked at another man, and knew it had to be my fault. She says she's forgiven me, but I don't think I can ever forgive myself. Abby, please tell your readers not to take foolish chances like I did. I'm not a tramp, Abby. I went out on my wife only once, and God forgive me, it was the most foolish thing I've ever done. HATING MYSELF DEAR HATING: I'll print your letter as a reminder to women as well as men that venereal disease is still one of FOOD FOR AMERICANS society's most serious problems. Be careful 1 DEAR ABBY: I am a woman, 22, and married. I quit my job as a beautician because I don't like that kind of work. My friends, neighbors and relatives think that because I'm not working right now I have lots of time on my hands, so they come over and ask me to do their hair—for nothing. I m not pushy and I hate to hurt anyone's feelings, so I go ahead and do their hair. It's a lot easier than making up some kind of excuse. Besides, I don't want any trouble. Now I've had it. Will you please give me a good excuse to use when relatives, neighbors and friends ask me to do their hair? RETIRED DEAR RETIRED: You don't need an "excuse"-you have a legitimate reason. Use it. Simply say: "I quit being a beautician because I don't cure for that kind of work." And if you haven't got the courage to stand up and speak your mind because you don't want "trouble"—you're already in a lot of trouble! DEAR ABBY: "Nameless in Ga." wrote: "If there were a book entitled 'How to Learn to Love Unwanted Children' it would be just what I need." Abby, what she needs is Margaretha A. Riddle's book, "The Rights of Infants." (New York: Columbia University Press. 1943) ARTHUR H. PRINCE DEAR ARTHUR: Your suggestion is a good one. And so is the book, but it's out of print. "Nameless" should try her public library. Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addr«as«d envelope, please. For Abby's new booklet, "What Teen-agers Want to Know," send $1 to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lasky Dr., Beverly Hills, Calif. 90212. Soup-fast, simple and delicious By Aileen Claire NEA Food Editor Men like .soup. For example, pjie says it is (he-one dish he makes well. And this- comes from his childhood days of listening to radio shows like Pepper Young's Family when he could run into the kitchen and make himself some soup (i.e., open a can and heat it up) and get back for the next episode. Times haven't changed that much as far as men, and those other folks like women and children, liking hot or cold soups anytime during the year is concerned. However, more cooks now like to take time to put together a homemade soup, even if it has some ready-made ingredients, than the aforementioned instant can-opener did. One such soup to serve before a meal or as a main course with a salad, homemade cornbread and fresh fruit dessert is an Italian Vegetable-Barley Soup. Don't hesitate to freeze this in single portions if some is leftover. It will still be good ... if not better than the first time around. ITALIAN VEGETABLE-BARLEY SOUP Italian vegetable-barley soup is made with convenience foods. 2 (10-ounce)cans condensed beef bouillon 3-1/3 cups water 3 cups bouillon 1 (16-ounce) can tomatoes 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon basil 1 /4 teaspoon pepper 3/4 1/4 1 1 1 1/4 cup regular barley * cup onion, chopped garlic clove, minced cup julienne carrot strips medium-sized zucchini, thinly sliced (16-ounce) can kidney beans, drained tablespoon olive oil cup chopped fresh parsley In a large pot combine beef bouillon, water, red wine, tomatoes, salt, basil and pepper. Bring to a boil. Add barley. Coyer and simmer 1 hour or until barley is tender. Add onion, garlic, carrots, zucchini and brussels sprouts. Return to a boil; cover and simmer 10 minutes, or until vegetables are just tender. Add kidney beans, olive oil and parsley, heat thoroughly Serve with Parmesan cheese. (* One cup quick barley may be substituted for regular barley. Add with vegetables. Return to boil. Cover and simmer 10 minutes, or until vegetables and barley are tender. Proceed as directed.) Makes 8 servings. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE AS.SN i Here's the Answer If thst chili c«j carne or cur- O sauce isn't hot enough to sutt your taste, add a little liquid hot pepper seasoning. Vanilla pudding, used pie filling, is especially as a good when it has sliced bananas or coconut added to it. By ANDY LANG AP Newsfeatures Q. About a year ago I put down vinyl asbestos tile in our recreation room. I now am thinking about installing the same kind of tile as wainscoting four feet up the wall. My wife says she wonders whether floor tile will hold properly on a wall. Will it? A. Yes, but you must use the proper adhesive. You need what is called a hard-setting adhesive, such as that used when installing cove base. When you buy the tile, the manufacturer's instructions advise you exactly what kind of adhesive to use. When putting tile on a wall, spread only enough adhesive to handle six to eight tiles at a time. Position the tiles carefully, press firmly in place and roll with a hand roller of the kind used to secure wallpaper seams. Q. I see advertisements for shiplap lumber and dressed- and-matched lumber. My dictionary says that shiplap is "wooden sheathing in which the boards are rabbeted so that the edges of each board lap over the edges of adjacent boards to make a tight joint," but I can't find any definition of the other kind. A. Both shiplap and dressed- and-matched lumber are designed to make tight-fitting joints. The shiplap has lapped edges as explained in the dictionary. Dressed-and- matched lumber has a tongue on one side and a groove on the other. You probably already know it as tongue-and-groove lumber. It is generally agreed that the t o n g u e-and-groove design J makes an even tighter joint than shiplap, but it costs more. Q. We would like to paint the aluminum mesh in our screens. Is any primer needed? A. Zinc chrpmate is the recommended primer before painting the mesh. First clean the mesh with turpentine or mineral spirits to remove all dirt and grime. Q. I have a set of instructions for putting down a brick walk. It says all bricks should be thoroughly wet before they are put in place. Can you tefi me why this is necessary? A. I assume this is for a brick walkway in which mortar will be placed between the bricks. Unless the bricks are soaked completely, either by leaving them in water for a half hour or more or by running a garden hose over them for 10 or 15 minutes, they will soak up the water in the rnor- tar. If the bricks are themselves saturated, they will be unable to absorb any of the water from the mortar. For the same reason, the walkway should be hosed down a couple of times a day for several days after the project is completed. Shop in Hope.

Finishing Touches Make the most of accessories. Small scarves sticking out of pockets or shirt sleeves, hats sparked with flowers, buttons, beads or anything, will liven last year's outfits. Holding a Scent Heapplication of perfume to one area can cause drying and irritation.
