Advice for Long Life Why Grow Old? By Josephine Lowman When we consider the terrific increase in heart attacks and mental disorders we know that many folks are not putting into practice the information now available concerning health and longevity. So much knowledge has been gained in the research laboratories and in studies and surveys that this seems a shame. It's like starving to death in a super market. In this age, when so much is known about how to preserve health and prolong life, especially the youthful portion of life, vascular diseases and mental illnesses are on the upgrade. We eat more rich foods and fats than ever before. We exercise and walk less than ever before. Cars and push-button conveniences may be uncertain blessings if they lure us into sedentary lives. The sale of sleeping pills is zooming. Evidently modern sleep is fitful. Mental illness is increasing at an alarming rate. People must live under great strain these days. Yet we know that daily exercise is vital if we wish to delay physical deterioration. There is enough evidence that fats, especially animal fats, may play a part i n hardening the arteries to cause many doctors to ask their patients to cut down on their fat intake or to substitute vegetable fats when possible. This is usually true when the patient has a history of heart trouble or strokes in his family or when he has had a heart attack or has a high cholesterol blood level. There can no longer be any doubt that overweight shortens life, raises blood pressure and greatly increases the chance of suffering from one of the chronic diseases. Psychosomatic medicine is a household word. Everyone knows that emotions have a drastic effect on the body. We also know that worry is damaging to mental health and yet how many people make a real effort to control it? Most people can look forward to a long vital life if they are willing to pay the price for it. It isn't such a big price to pay when compared with the dividends it brings. Eat less and exercise more; worry less and laugh more. Put the information we now have concerning good nutrition into practice in your daily menus.

Natural Childbirth Now Compulsory in Russia The author is a Russian citizen who writes on non-political matters from the Soviet Union. By Dena Korenevskaya (Exclusive to The Tribune) MOSCOW, RUSSIA If an expectant Soviet mother were told to expect anesthetics during labor, she would conclude that something is wrong with her. And small wonder, for natural childbirth that is, delivery without ane s t h e t i c s has been made compulsory in Soviet hospitals. According to the official view, childbirth is as natural a process as eating or sleeping, and administering anesthetics is not only unnatural but makes both mother and baby suffer from after- effects. Supporters of natural childbirth contend that both muscle tonus and breathing are affected by anesthetics, which also prolong delivery, they say. The official medical view Easy, no-cook pear with vanilla ice cream to Homemaking 14 DES MOINES TRIBUNE Tues., Sept. 17, 1963 Wants to Nurse Third After Bottle-Feeding 2 Your Baby and Mine By Myrtle Meyer Eldred Mrs. F. T. R. writes: Dear Mrs. Eldred: I have two children, aged 4 and 2. and am expecting my third child. I bottle-fed the two oldest and they got along fine, but I have a strong desire to nurse my third. My husband thinks I am foolish, my friends think I am nuts, but my doctor says he is for me if I want to do that. I know you ap- Picture these aprons on you.

Wmm" is that pain is not a necessary element of childbirth but is caused mainly by the patient's state of mind her fears and anxieties, bolstered by the misconception, ingrained for many centuries, that she must suffer. The natural method is aimed at eliminating these fears and is therefore called in Russia "psycholog i c a 1 prophylaxis." This psychological training takes place during the last month of pregnancy and consists of five sessions with a physician. The sessions are free, as is all Soviet medical service. Attendance is compulsory, although no measures are taken against those who do not attend. But propaganda for attending "mothers-to-be-schools," as they are called here, is so heavy that an estimated 80 per cent of all expectant mothers are trained. The first session, with conserve is layered make a fine sundae. and Family Life prove of breast-feeding, do you think I would be wise to try this? Mrs. Eldred says: Why not? What have you got to lose? This is a new experience and if you are determined to succeed, you will. The relationship between you and the baby becomes such a warm and loving one that you will feel sorry you have missed this previously. Again, if you allow your friends and husband to discourage you, your whole attitude will be different. You will be telling yourself how foolish you are and at the least sign of trouble a crying baby a small weight gain you will be ready to throw in the sponge. Personally, any amount of breast-feeding and for any length of time, is all to the good. But you ought to be bolstered against temporary discouragement before you start. It is a simple matter to nurse at any hour and in any situation. If the baby is ill, hurt, emotionally upset or just fatigued, there is nothing so soothing as a breast-feeding right then, whatever the time. It is the safest food, being sterile, under all circumstances. It is the easiest to digest as it has the right ingredients in the right proportions for the baby. In the face of such advantages, why do you hesitate?

The training proper begins with the second meeting. The women are told what sensations they will experience and that some (though very little) pain during labor is a sign that everything is going all right. They are then taught simple breathing rules (count from 1 to 8 for inhaling) to make sure the body is getting enough oxygen. These rules, together with instruction in self-massage of the abdomen, are considered a most important part of the psychological preparation. Russian doctors say the system diverts attention from the birth process itself, thus lessening the pain. An overwhelming majority of Russian doctors are It's Easy to Make Jelly Nowadays By Jean Tallman (Tha Tribune's Food Editor) Can she peel a pear, boil water, stir with a spoon? If she's that smart, then she's well on the way to becoming a proficient jelly-maker. Unlike grandma, and even mother, she can skip the business of that "apron" on the spoon that tests for jelly doneness. She doesn't have to skim off the scum or melt paraffin. She doesn't need a preserving kettle to accommodate ingredients at a "full rolling boil." For today's jams and jellies don't have to boil. They don't even have to cook.

They point to the fact that the shrill yells that were traditionally characteristic of women during labor are rare now, with patients busily concentrating on the rules they have been taught. An unusual aspect of natural childbirth here is that hospital authorities evaluate the conduct of each patient Patients' records are marked "complete effect," "partial effect" or "lack of effect." The aim of this mark system is to evaluate the thoroughness of the preparatory course and the work of the doctor responsible. Russians believe the success of the method depends totally on the doctor who conducts the training and how much he himself believes in it. fruit is chopped or crushed, combined with a few other ingredients, and poured into jars.

Mrs. Dexter Otis Arnold of Washington, D.
