Redlands Daily Facts Friday, April 30,1965-15 It's National Baby Week In Redlands - May 1 - 8 Emergency poison antidote kit advocated All parents of young children should keep a poison antidote in their homes, the Children's Hospital Medical Center in Boston advises. In an article published in the PEDIATRIC HERALD, the hospital suggested that parents stock their first-aid kits with Syrup of Ipecac, which is avail able only by prescription and should be given only under a doctor's direction: Derived from tropical plants and known for generations, Ipecac has only recently been widely used by physicans as a poison antidote. One cause of the preparation's sudden popularity, the hospital pointed out, is the growing realization that it is often better to have a victim of poisoning vomit up the sub stance than to have his stomach pumped out. However, the hospital officials warned, in some cases vomiting can increase the damage. When a child has consumed kerosene or other petroleum products or has ingested any product containing lye, the poison may do more harm on ils way up than it did going down. Lye may rupture the esophagus, and kerosene may pass into the lungs and damage them, the hospital's Department of Health Education explained. One drug company has started marketing a poison control kit containing Syrup of Ipecac and activated charcoal for use in poison emergencies, and including specific instructions to follow in the event an emergency does occur.

The lop year as a 48 state nation and boys reaching marriageable j lation has been made, some spot 'checks confirm that more times will keep the wedding bells ringing. Continued improvement in nutrition, medical care and the number of babies born in hos-| pitaJs also will help to add to :he population.

Movie-making can be very economical, too. For example, one easy-to-use 8 mm model comes complete with a roll of color film and idea book — all 'or less than $20. Designed for the family who want top-quality movies and box-camera simplicity, the Brownie Fun Saver Movie Gamer has an exposure dial that requires only one simple setting for properly exposed movies. Then you just aim and shoot. Of course, a more expensive model, such as the Electric 8 Automatic Camera, has a built- in electric eye which automatically sets exposure for you. Where there's a baby there's movement. Follow the little fellow by keeping him in the view finder. Don't walk while you're shooting, of course. Just hold the camera firmly and pivol your body at the hip. You'll want to keep the camera steady. One of the great secrets ol movie-making is to tell a story. You don't need a script or elaborate preparation. Just record things as they happen. Almost anything the baby does will make a good movie story Your story is a collection ol scenes. Make the story more interesting by varying those scenes. Take them from differ ent viewpoints; get high, gel low. Take them from different lengths: long shots, medium shots, closeups. A good way to start your movie is with a long shot — from 20 to 30 feet away. This establishes the locale. Then move in for a medium-distance shot from about 10 or 15 feet to show the baby performing that actiAn. Finally, move ir close — about four or five fee — for a really good look at the action and the baby's expression. Home care for baby foods is vital Mothers have the final responsibility for continuing the baby food (juality control program that begins in the fields and orchards. After mother selects baby food from the supermarket shelf, she must see that the foods reach baby in the most appealing and sanitary form possible until the last portion is eaten. , Jars of baby foods, cans' of strained juices and boxes of ce real should be kept in a dry, moderately cool pace. Cereals can absorb foreign odors, so keep the boxes away from soaps, cleaners, drugs and strongly flavored vegetables. Just like any other food, baby foods should be rotated, using those on hand longest before opening newer purchases.

I This is the income that the : father's Social Security can pro! vide a mother and child over j the child's first 18 years if anything should happen to the father. Many a young man who thinks he is doing well just keeping up with his current obligations realizing when the first baby arrive that he had better start thinking seriously about his future obligations. Probably his wife worked until a few months before the baby came, and the first shock of a new stage in their financial affairs was felt when her paycheck stopped. Now. suddenly, the father's mind leaps from the cost of a baby carriage to the cost of col-j lege. He has a good job — andj he can take care of his family. If anyhing should happen to! him, there is his Social Security —$190.60 a month until his child is 18. It is not enough to live on, but his wife can go back to work. Or can she? More important, does he want her to? The baby needs a mother or a good substitute — not an easy person to, find. And if the mother goes back to work, she will probably lose Social Security income. Many young fathers who have thought along these lines have discovered that they can decide what they want their families to have, and then buy it in advance. The system is called programmed life insurance. It works like this. The new father finds a good life insurance agent and tells the agent what he wants his family to have.
