Ann Landers answers your problems Dear Ann Landers: Why are teen-agers (almost without exception) obsessed with the desire to know all there is to know about sex? My husband and I are not prudes nor do we believe that silence and secrecy should surround this topic. But we do feel that entirely too much emphasis has been placed on sex talk. Is it healthy to give teen-agers so much information so soon? Although we are Canadian parents we feel this problem exists in the U.S. as well. Thank you.—MR. and MRS. J. Dear Mr. and Mrs. J.: Sex is equated with love in the movies, on TV and-in novels. Everyone wants to be loved, and kids glom onto the idea that sex is love. I do not believe teen-agers today are more interested in sex than we were 30 years ago but they are certainly less self-con- long-winded phone pests and in an effort to shake Joose, they will say almost anything. Since you have more free time than your friend, why not let her call you when she finds it convenient? Dear Ann Landers: Before 1 met my wife she was engaged to someone else. The engagement was off long before came along so I had nothing to do with it. I think they knew each other pretty well, if you get what I mean. My wife and I have been married several years and I have no reason to doubt that she loves me. She has been 100 per cent loyal and true. Every few months we run into her former boy friend — usually at a wedding, or a funeral. My wife always greets this man in a friendly manner. Sometimes they enchange a few sentences. Cause of defects in babies Doctors showing increased concern over measles By FRANK JACKMAN United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The doctors call it "rubella." But to anyone who's ever had it,' the disease is always "German measles." Once it was thought to be a relatively harmless and almost unavoidable part of everyone's childhood—like mumps, or chicken pox (with which it's sometimes confused), or a broken collar bone. But now an epidemic of Ger- man measles is termed "a major tragedy" by a public health official. And a spokesman for the Johns Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore contends that it is "much more serious" than the menace from the now outlawed drug thalidomide. Dr. Richard Masland, a director of the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Blindness, told a congressional committee recently that the German measles epidemic which struck the nation last year could result in "thousands of defective babies." "We are very fearful that between a half and one per cenl of all the babies whose mothers were pregnant during this period of the epidemic are going to be defective." He said that government studies indicated about 2 mil lion women were "at risk" dur ing the spring and summer of 1964 when the German measles If these figures are correct, :here will be thousands .of de- iective babies in the United States from this one epidemic. Since many of these women iave not delivered yet, the full impact of this has not hit the country. But this is a major tragedy," Masland said. A U. S. Public Health Service official later elaborated on Masland's testimony. He said there were still many cases of German measles but that the outbreak was not expected to reach epidemic proportions in every section of the United States. A United Press International survey shows that most of the German measles - associated births apparently occurred in East Coast cities. At the Johns Hopkins Hospital, for example, approximately 40 epiemic struck the East Coast children were admitted in in »«.«•»••••«.» m**~imj I VI VI ^ VI WU., H|JI II IM, 1 f UtI • +* fancy or were "congenitally malformed" in the past year as the result of their mothers having had German measles. A Hopkins spokesman said he believed the epidemic "is going to turn out to be a national problem of, great magnitude in terms of acute and long-range community problems of education and medical care. The net cost is going to be very great. "All of this will be much more serious than the thalidomide aftermath, particularly for this country." Infants infected with German measles usually are underweight, most being 2 pounds to 4 pounds at birth. They are afflicted with congenital heart diseases and cataracts, but Miaca eirmntnmc cnmotimoc t\n not : show up until six months or more after birth. Dr. Joseph Melnick of Houston, one of the world's foremost virologists, said that occasionally afflicted babies "still put out the virus" Cor as long as six months after birth and could set off new epidemics. Doctors are still not certain under what conditions the infection causes malformation in the unborn baby. There are about "six or seven variables" involved, one Public Health Service official said, including the extent of the infection and the mother's physiological system.
