VAN DELLEN « © Chicago Tribune irhe wife of many an obste- trjcian is convinced that most babies are born at night, on holidays; week-ends or during the vacation season. We know this is not true as statistics show that births occur at random intervals. A.survey conducted at four Oklahoma City \ hospitals revealed that only 10 per cent more babies arrived at night that during the day. The favorite ; hour was between 3 and 4 a.m. The delivery rooms were least busy in the afternoon with the lowest incidence at 3 p.m. Tuesday was the busiest day and more babies were born during Au- gijgt than any other month. The fewest number arrived in AJjril. ·ft was believed that more babies were born in later summer and earlv autumn because the fertility of the sperm and ova is highest .during cold weather." In other wpjds, babies born at this time of the year were con- ceived in November, December, or January--the coldest months in Oklahoma. Not only is summer the season most babies are born, but, according to Dr. J. F. Greenhill, it is when the best babies are born. By best, the Chicago obstetrician means, b a b i e s better x equipped constitutionally to withstand the hazards of early infancy. Stillbirths, deaths from premature birth and congenital defects are more common among infants born during the first five months of the year. Apparently the winter months are a strain on the pregnant woman. The death rate is 20 per cent higher in the first 6 months than during the last half of the year. . G. R. T.. writes: My 10- year-old grandson's muscular pain and stiffness in the legs has been diagnosed as trichinosis. What is this disease and how long does it take to cure? Reply: Your grandson has been eating raw or uncooked pork containing the Trichinel- la organisms. Pain stems from parasites that have settled in the muscles. Distress will subside in time but the organisms remain forever encysted in the muscles. Mrs. T. T. writes: My husband has his breakfast at 5 a.m. In order to save time I perk the coffee the night before and put it in the refrigerator. The next morning he takes it out and heats it. Our Mennonites Changing Structure of Church ·KITCHENER, Ont.. (B -Delegates to 'the biennial general conference of the Mennonite Church of North America unanimously approved a n e w constitution yesterday wfiich .is meant to make chjirch, government more representative and geared to local, congregations. Changes in the structure of wfi'at is commonly called the Old Merinonite Church were first requested 10 years ago. Tlie previous patterns of the church were established in reorganization isn't the answer for the next 75 years, but a built-in process is being provided to make the structure the servent of the total brotherhood," said Paul Kraybill of Salunga, Pa., one of the bylaw authors. The news constitution will be put before the existing autonomous bodies which will, in effect, vote themselves out of existence in accepting the changes. Those bodies are the board of missions and charities; board of education and the publication board. The name of the denomination is also to be changed; to the Mennonite Church from the M e n n o n i t e Church of North America. son insists that reheated coffee causes hardening of the arteries. Is he right? Reply: No. The coffee may taste "flat" but it is not harmful. The decision to refrigerate the coffee is up to you. D. D. writes: Could too 'much coffee or alcohol be responsible for a feeling of pressure in the chest, just below the right breast, that is relieved by belching? Reply: Yes, but other possible causes might be uncovered when symptoms are discussed more thoroughly. Indigestion also is a manifestation of an oversensitivity or idiosyncrasy to caffeine.

DILLARD'S OPEN THURSDAY ONE HOUR EARLY . . . 9 A.M. TIL 9 MWNE 991 7300 FRIDAY 10 'TIL 9, SATURDAY 10 'TIL 6 By FRANCES LEWINE SAN DIEGO, Calif, ffl First Lady Pat Nixon says she has found great enthusiasm for President Nixon this week on her cross-country trip and that it bodes well for the 1972 campaign. Nixon has been "a marvelous .president" and anyone who "sat down and outlined the things he has done would work just as hard for him in '72 as I did » '68," she added. Mrs. Nixon talked with reporters as she flew to California yesterday for the last part of her trip, the formal transfer of 370 acres of federal land at Border Field today for public recreation use. 'Her conversation indicated that her hus- ' band would run again, something he has not yet announced. Handshaking and chatting with people in Virginia, Michigan, Minnesota and Oregon as she turned over 4,000 acres of federal lands, Mrs.. Nixon said she got a "heartwarming" reaction. She said she saw a lot of the country, met people in all walks of life and had a chance to find out what they're thinking. "Are you getting any feel- ings about 1972?" she was asked. "I haven't done it for that purpose," Mrs. Nixon said of her three-day trip. "But I think the enthusiasm's great . . . People are telling me personally as we go along." She quoted such comments as, "I'm a Democrat, but I'm for you." "I like what your husband is doing." "Tell him he's doing a good job.
