Friends and relatives are invited to call between the hours of 2 and 4 p.m. Sunday, July 7. There's another, cluss of citizens being discriminated against, according to a behavioral scientist:: the fatties of the world. Dr. Richard B. Stuard, psychological consultant fo Weight Watchers International and author of the book, "Fat Chance in a Slim World," declares that "The overeater is thought of as a second-class citizen, both by people in general and by those who are expected to be of help." Says Stuart, "Overweight people have been the brunt of Jokes for ages, have been denied certain kinds of jobs and are often openly embarrassed in public". The professor of psychology in the Department of Psychiatry, School of Medicine, University of Brlstish Columbia, Van- cover, has authored or co-authored six books and over 60 porfesstonal articles, a number of them on the problems of overweight. His work with Weight Watchers has, in his words, presented him with a chance "to bring to bear research and clinical skills developed in far-ranging areas upon the task of helping overweight persons to develop more effective means of self and situational management." He cited the organization as "the largest and most successful multi-national" group trying to help millions of people to learn more ef fer- tlve ways of leading their lives. Dr. Stuart claims that eating behavior is not under the control of the person himself, but is influenced by the people with whom he lives and the places in which he carries out his life. The doctor lists some of the most blatant Influences the fat person has to overcome to change his eating habits: TV commercials selling super-dellclous cakes. (Have you ever heard of a commercial for broccoli, he asks.) The family's insisting that potato chips be kept in reach of the TV set. People asking constantly "What's cooking?" and describing others as "fat and Jolly." Women's magazines full of recipes and pictures of rich, fattening desserts. And the idea that good hosts must always serve food. Weight Watchers, according to officials here in Bay County, offers the overweight person a chance to at the constant influences to overeat and to re-educate their eating habits so that they can not only lose unwanted pounds, but keep them off. Those who lose weight only to regain it, Dr. Stuart insists, are "particing the rythmn method of girth control," and are actually indulging in a pattern, not only disappointing, but bad for the health. SEEING DOUBLE — Like Venus rising from the waves, a photographer's trick turns Peggy Whitfield of Port St. Joe into a vision. The analogy has a deeper meaning for this young wife and mother. Mrs. Whitfield once weighed 83 pounds more than she does today. A dedicated Weight Watcher, she has maintained her ideal weight now for well over a year, and teaches a Weight Watcher class in Port St. Joe every Tuesday. Under her guidance, others in the small Gulf Coast town have shed more than 3,000 pounds.
