Page Ten - Blythevllte (Ark.) Courier New* - Saturday, January IS, 1968 Abigail Van Barea—— Doctors Terrify Her Daughter, 21 DEAR ABBY: I have a problem which I have had for nearly 21 years. My daughter, Lulu, has been terrified of doc tors ever since she was a tiny baby, and she seems to be getting worse every year. The few times she has had to have medical care she has passed out at the sight of a doctor. Please help me to get her over this, Abby. A person has to see a doctor and dentist every once in a while, and I have to find some way of getting Lulu there without going thru all kinds of hell. (Excuse the expression). Thank you. WORRIED DEAR WORRIED: It's a pretty good guess that your daughter was frightened by doctor (probably in a white coat) when she was a baby, and coasequently the mere sight of a man in a white coat triggers this deeply - rooted fear. If Lain Is to overcome this obsession, she will have to cooperate with still another doctor. (One who deals with emotional problems, but., happily he won't wear a white coat.) YOU can move heaven and earth, Mother, but you cnn't help her until she wants to help herself. DEAR ABBY: I have wanted to be an air line hostess for as far back as I can remember, and I know I would be a good one. But I have a problem. My mother and father don't like the idea. They say it is too dangerous. Abby, there are risks in every profession, and I have spoken to girls who have flown with the different a i r lines for years and they don't seem to think it's dangerous. What do you think? I h a v e talked my heart out. What can I tell my parents to make them change their minds? AMY DEAR AMY: According to the most recent statistics, air travel is one of the safest methods of transportation. Last year the fatality rate on scheduled United States air lines was 0.07 per 100 million paisenfer miles, as compared with 0.16 for railroads, and 2.4 for autos. One air line has never had an injury or fatality to passengers or crew members In its entire 20-year history. In this time it crried IS, million passenges over two billion miles. If 15 million people were to take showers you could expect a few to slip on the soap. DEAR ABBY: Where is a girl supposed to get married? In her own home town? Or her fiance's? My fiance and I have been having some disagreements on this. He's from Illinois and I am from Kentucky. His people live mostly on farms and could not get away for very long, whereas my people live in the city and most of them work in offices and could take a couple of days off work to attend the wedding. It really doesn't matter much to me, except that most of my friends are in Louisville. What does the book of etiquette say? LOUISVILLE GIRL DEAR GIRL: The book of etiquette says the wedding should take place in the girl's home town. But again, let me say that common sense, convenience and circumstances transcend etiquette. CONFIDENTIAL TO BARBARA IN CLAYTON, MO.: .You are not alone, my dear.

CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Intel faith marriages, once a rarity in past periods of ethnic and religious aloofness in America, have become a common pattern. And a new study shows the proportion of them still is rising. Religious analysts see both advantages and disadvantages in the trend. 'All studies show that the intermarried have a high risk of divorce," says Dr. Victor D. ually the last. Troubled?

Send $1 to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069, for Abby's booklet, "How to Write Letters for all Occasions." Sanua, associate professor of psychology at New York's YesJi- iva University, and author of a broad survey of the practice. However, he adds, this draw' back is noticeable chiefly in cases when one party lacks any firm religious commitment, rather than because of a clash between differing religious beliefs. On the positive side, a recent Catholic-Presbyterian conference concluded that a marriage between a Catholic and Protestant can be a useful contribution towrd a fuller grasp of unity in tiie Christian faith. If two people of differing "aiths can live together in deep love and understanding, then we nave something pointing to the great church of the future," said a conference spokesman, :he Rt. Rev. Msgr. Henry G. J. Beck, of Lyndhurst, N.J. Children in mixed marriages, he added, should "become familiar with both traditions" of the parents, and while being reared clearly In one of them, should "be given a real reverence" for the other. Dr. Sanua's research, drawing figures from a wide number of studies, indicate that the extent of ihterfaith marriages has increased steadily for more than two decades, and is expected to continue rising. At present, he says, available statistics indicate an estimated "50 per cent of Catholics marry outside their faith. The percentage for Protestants seems to be about as high. For the Jewish group, it is approximately 17 per cent." This constitutes a dramatic upswing, he commented, although no precise comparative figures are available for past periods. But a quarter century ago, he added, such a marriage could set neighbors talking. "It was unusual," he said in an interview. But not anymore. He said he doubted if the 'riendlier interreligious climate las stimulated the trend, add- ing that the main cause lies in the dissolving of old national- ethnic lines, bringing Americans into generally "homogenized groups." * • * * However, he notes, the proportion of intermarriages rises sharply in areas where one group is a small minority, in the midst of another overwhelmingly predominant group. For example, the percentage of Catholic marriages to Protestants are much higher in the South, where Protestantism strongly predominates, while the Protestant intermarriage ratio rises steeply in heavily Catholic cities. Similarly, Jewish intermarriages go up to 45 to 70 per cent in small cities and rural areas, where they are small minorities.
