Boy friends motivate fat girls to diet MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The only answer to the obesity problems of fat teen-aged girls may be to get boy friends for the girls, a Minneapolis doctor has counseled his colleagues. Dr. Daniel Cordon, a family physician, told a medical symposium sponsored by Minneapolis Children Health's Center of the conclusion he had reached after 1% years of obesity study and thought. Conlon suggested that physicians do whatever they can to help motivate obese female teen-aged patients to diet. "Pray for her or find a good boy friend for her," he recommended. Conlon added Friday that most other ways of tackling the problem are relatively ineffective. Conlon said there are 10 million obese, adolescents in the United States and five out o! six are girls. He said bis study of research indicates there v afe*.three- " peaks'' when youngsters add a lot of extra fat cells likely to give them a weight problem for life. The peaks are around the age of 9 months, from the ages of 5 to 7 and in adolescence, Conlon said. He said there is strong evidence many people have severe weight problems because they added so many fat cells during those three periods. It could result, Conlon said, from parents demanding "clean plates," from parents using foods as pacifiers or from the children being started on fatty solid foods early in infancy. As ways of preventing obesity, he suggested mothers breast feed their infants "into the first year." 220 attend banquet of employers, employes HAROLD WJHLENBKX Harill tttklNteck services on Friday Harold Muhlenbeck, 47, Route I, died yesterday at his home.

(AP) John Considine, who lost the 2nd District DFL congressional endorsement to Gloria Griffin, says he may run against Mrs. Griffin in the primary election. He says he would make an announcement in about two weeks concerning his political future following a study of voter support.

"My personal opinion is that she'll have a very difficult time," Considine said. "The reason I'm staying in and the reason 1 would continue to check the voter support would be because I have some doubts about whether she can beat Hagedorn." Recruits to get full Guard pay Effective April 1, 1976, high school seniors and other young people joining the Minnesota Army National Guard will be paid for their part-time training assemblies, according to a new policy announced this week. Until the new policy was announced, a Department of Defense order had prohibited Guard units from paying new members until they had completed the initial active duty for training. This meant that recruits did not attend training assemblies at all or if they did, it was in a voluntary, non-pay status. Under the new program, new Guard members will earn $12.04 for each four-hour training assembly, usually held in combinations of four assemblies on one weekend per month. "Our recruits deserve to be paid for their training just like the rest of us and we are extremely pleased with the new policy thnt allows us to pay them," si j Captain Larry W. SheUilo, commander of the Fergus Falls Guard unit. Shellito, who in civilian life is employed by the Alexandria Vocational Technical Institute, • said the policy puts more teeth into the Guard's new slogan: "The Army National Guard, Most Important Part-Time Job in Minnesota." "For more information about the paid drill program, men and women, age 17-35, are invited to call SFC. Donald R. Johnson at 736-3320, or stop in at the Armory, 421 E. Cecil Ave., Fergus Falls, any weekday between 8 and 4:30, Thursday evening until 9, or to come to our next weekend assembly, May 1 and 2," Shellito said.
