I came upon this idea of a handy baby book. ! rut on) articles I read in magazines about baby hints, motherhood, soothing poems and most of all about emotions. I know how difficult it. can be to lose your figure and have sleepiess nights and a crying baby. ! put all of these in a photo album with clear rovers so they are protected. I placed them in order from the third month of pregnancy with articles about pampering yourself and fun things that can happen to you till the day of arrival. ! also included coupons for facials, nialcniity fashion shows and free baby-magazine offers, all for the new mom 1.0 enjoy. 1 saved all the helpful baby hints from you too. All of these went into the album, along with a few words about experiences with my 4-year-old and (i-week-old. Heloise My friend is very special to me, We've gone through high school and marriage; now she is experiencing the biggest moment, of her life. I want it to be wonderful for her. I feel this book will help her smile and love motherhood like I do. — Becky D'Amato, Springfield, Va. You are a gem. Wish we could all have a special friend lil^e you. I'm sure she will cherish her book forever. — Heloise MEMORY TIE Dear Heloise: When my husband passed away, I couldn't bear to throw away all his beautiful ties that he loved so. I was going to make a couch throw, then decided that my four sons should be part of it, so here's what I did. I cut out heart:-shaped pillows and stuffed them, using chintz for the backs and a matching cording. I made each son and each grandchild a memory pillow. When I received a thank-you card from one of my grandsons, it made my day. He said, "Thank you for my Valentine stuff, but most of all thank you for the memory of Grandpa." — L, Rowland, Elizabeth Town, Ky. KNOT HANDLES Dear Heloise: I shop quite a few times a week for groceries and have a half-mile walk home, It's important for me to find the most comfortable way to carry the bags when I don't have my shopping cart with me. • I tie the handles of the plastic carrying bag together in a square knot. The knot fits comfortably into my hand and will not cut into it even with heavy items in the bag. — J.S. Cross, Brunswick, Maine LINT FREE MIRROR Dear Heloise: My husband had a habit of using a bath towel to dry the steam-covered mirror after a shower. This always left a streaked and lint-covered mirror. I told him that I simply use the hair dryer to quickly dry the steam. Now he does too! No more streaks, no more lint. — Elizabeth Raimonds, Staten Island, N.Y. Send a money- or time-saving hint to Heloise, P.O. Box 795000, San Antonio, Texas 78279. I can't answer your letter personally but will use the best hints received in my column. Blood Test Can Verify Diagnosis Q: What does a doctor look for when he takes blood? It seems that. I have this done every time I go to see him? A: When doctors take a blood sample, they are not looking for a specific disease, but rather are seeking to verify some impression gathered during a routine examination. The blood i.s a remarkable storehouse for the most intricate happen ings in every organ of our bodies. Do/.ens of tests can now be performed on a small sample of blood. Each test has il.s own purpose. When a doctor suspects an infection such as inoiioiuicle.'jsis, th' 1 blood reflects this condition. The same is true with many other illnesses. The condition of the kidneys, the liver, the heart, the lungs and the gastrointestinal tract are reflected in changes in the blood, in its chemistry ;jnd its mineral content. Abnormal amounts of sugar in the blood can be meaningful when diabetes is suspected. Increase of cholesterol and triglycerides are very meaningful. The increase of uric acid Health Drs. Lester L. Coleman & Steven Andrew Davis in the blood suggests the possibility of gout. The presence of special enzymes is significant, in the early recognition of heart attacks. The liver, the most remarkable chemistry factory in the body, is heir to many disturbances. Blood studies quickly establish particular diseases of the liver and their control. — L.C. Q: Would you please remind your readers that people with disabilities need a little consideration from the rest of us? My husband has had a disability for 20 years, and it is appalling how otherwise well-meaning people stumble in dealing with him. Remember, they are people, and people first. A: You have actually started off (.he discussion quite well by referring to a person with a disability rather than a disabled person. This happens to be a good time of the year to talk about this subject, because one leader in the field of "disability etiquette" is the National Easter Seals Society. They point out, as do you, that we deal with people first, so when portraying someone with a disability we place the person before the disability our of respect for individual uniqueness and worth. And this kind of common courtesy extends to other areas, too. The Easter Seals Society reminds us that "when talking with the person who has a disability, speak directly to that person rather than through a companion who may be along." Also they say to be relaxed and not get embarrassed if we happen innocently to tell a blind person "see you later" or someone in a wheelchair that we've "got to be running along." With a little consideration and practice, we can learn to deal well with people who have problems hearing. To get their attention we can tap them on the shoulder gently or wave our hand. Also, it helps both of us when we look at people with hearing problems directly and speak clearly and slowly to help them read our lips. Of course, not everyone with hearing problems can read lips. For them it can also help for us to use appropriate facial expressions or other body language to help in understanding. Here's one final tip to make a conversation with someone in a wheelchair more comfortable. If the conversation goes on for more than a few minutes, we should place ourselves at the wheelchair user's eye level; it might help both of us avoid a stiff neck. — S.D. Lou Works Hard For College Fund Grammy Award-winning singer Lou Rawls has won the applause of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for his efforts in raising $100 million for the United Negro College Fund. County Supervisor Kenneth Hahn presented! Rawls with a proclama- Rawls lion Monday, praising his fund-raising successes as a "tremendous achievement and sacrifice." "A mind is a terrible thing to waste," Rawls said, repeating the fund's motto. "A lot of young people are standing on corners, and you know their minds are wasting away." The 51-year-old jazz, blues and ballad singer has raised millions for the fund in the eight years he has been host of the "Lou Rawls Parade of Stars'' telethon. In just six hours last year, he collected $10.6 million. Hirt out of hospital; treated for infection Jazz trumpeter Al Hirt was released from the hospital after being treated for an infection of his right arm and his playing hand by his friend, famed heart surgeon Michael DeBakey. "The outlook is excellent,'' Methodist Hospital spokeswoman Brenda Blake said after Hirt's release Monday. The 65-year-old musician flew to Houston from his home in New Orleans on Thursday so DeBakey could treat him. Reagans To Lease House In Bel Air WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan and his wife will lease a $2.5 million estate in the luxurious Bel Air district of Los Angeles, the White House says. Elaine Crispen, press secretary to first lady Nancy Reagan, said the Reagans signed a lease and mailed it within the last 10 days. Mrs. Crispen said she did not know the amount of lease payments. The 1 '/it-acre estate is owned by Wall Management Services, a group of about 20 friends of the Reagans who bought it with them in mind. The three-year agreement gives the Reagans the option to renew the lease or purchase the property, which includes a secluded house with 6,500 feet of living space and a pool. Wall Management bought the estate on Aug. 21,1986, from a 90-year-old woman who the investors said would lease it back from them until the Reagans were ready for it. Mrs. Crispen said the previous owner has since died. She said the lease agreement was worked out by the Reagans' lawyers, the White House counsel's office and the Office of Government Ethics. The Reagans lived in Pacific Palisades, in the western part of Los Angeles, before his election as president. That house has since been sold. Swaggart Penalty Decision Expected By Church Today SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) Leaders of the Assemblies of God debated how severely they should discipline fallen television evangelist Jimmy Swaggart, who has been accused of hiring a prostitute to pose naked for him. The Pentecostal church's 250-member General Presbytery, which has the final say on the fiery preacher's punishment, discussed the matter for about six hours Monday and was expected to vote today. "This is not a meeting to determine the guilt or innocence of Jimmy Swaggart; he has already confessed," said church spokeswoman Juleen Turnage. "They are here to make a decision on what will be done with his credentials." Mrs. Turnage said she had no information on the talks, but said she expected a decision today by the leaders of the nation's largest Pentecostal denomination. The Assemblies of God is hea- quartered in Springfield. Swaggart tearfully stepped down from his Baton Rouge, La., pulpit Feb. 21, admitting unspecified sins. Published reports have said he paid a prostitute to pose naked. Debra Murphree, who says she is the woman who posed, will appear in the July issue of Penthouse magazine. "BflOD MORMNG VIETNAM" (R) Mon.-Thur. 7:00 Only. "SHITCHH6 CHANNELS" Mon.-Thur. 7:1 5 Only Ann Landers Compulsive Liar Full Of Regrets Dear Ann Landers: f was a compulsive liar who started young. Although my parents did all they could to stop it, 1 kept lying. My problem was trying to impress people. My life never seemed glamorous enough. Here is a short history of what happens to a liar. I went through school lying to my friends, trying to look like a big shot. When I got out of high school, I had no friends, so I started to look for new ones. By then lying was a way of life. In order to support the lies I needed more money than I had so 1 wrote checks I couldn't cover. 1 also impersonated a naval officer and later a successful businessman. My wife found out that I had totally misrepresented myself and invented friends and businesses I never had. She left me. The same thing happened with my second wife. I decided I had to change. Shortly after I married my third wife, I went to prison for passing bad checks. She divorced me while 1 was in prison. This advice is for the kid who lies. Please think about the future. A lie not only hurts you, but it poisons all your relationships. I'll get out of prison some day, and when I do I vow to tell the truth. I will probably still be called a liar, but alter a while people will find out that they can trust me. I'm now 26 years old, and by the time I'm SO, I will have built a good reputation. A kind teacher once told me (when I was getting into so much trouble) that a person's word is worth more than gold. It's too bad that it took me so long to wake up to that fact. If you are a liar, stop while you still have friends. I hope my letter will help somebody who is where I was about 15 years ago. - STEVE M. IN OREGON, WIS. DEAR STEVE: You've written a very persuasive letter. I'm sure many readers out there who play fast and loose with the truth will give serious thought to what you have written. Thanks for sharing. Dear Ann Landers: For several years I made pastries, wedding cakes and fancy candies in my own kitchen. People were always asking me for my recipes. Because I didn't have the nerve to say no, I gave them freely. Now I make only mints for weddings. They are very unusual and people, like before, ask me for the recipe. 1 worked hard to perfect it, experimented for several years, and I don't want to give it to anyone. 1 am almost certain that I read a letter in your column quite a while ago from a woman who asked the baker in a restaurant for a bun recipe. She received the recipe in the mail and along with it was a bill. The woman then called her lawyer and asked if she had to pay the bill. He told her that she did. I don't want to charge anyone for anything. 1 just don't want to give my candy recipe to anyone. Please tell me: Am I being selfish? Will I make enemies? How can I refuse graciously? -- WICHITA, KAN. DEAR KAN.: You are under no obligation to give your candy recipe to anyone. Simply say it took you a long time to perfect it and you want to keep it your very own specialty. No reasonable person will hold this against you. Loganland Youth And Servicemen Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Todd A.
