That's quite a bit of liquid for anyone to be drinking at a silting, especially in the evening. Remember, tea 1 contains about the same amount of caffeine as does coffee, and caffeine is both a mild stimulant and a mild diuretic.

Dear Dr. Thosteson: My husband is H. He has been taking medication daily for the past three years for hypertension. He is currently being treated for depression. He has had three bouts of depression in the last three years. Do you think the drugs he is taking can be connected with his depression? —Mrs.- J.V. 'i , ..

The 31 other new QCs wore traditional long grey wigs as they were called within the bar Tuesday at the London high court. The Sikh religion, a very strict monotheistic sect from the Punjab region of India, forbids the cutting of hair. This makes it impossible to wear a wig and is the reason most Sikhs wear turbans.

When the International Harvester factory outlet in Grand Forks, N.1X, sold out to a private dealer in 1975, the company granted immediate pension benefits to its employes who were over age 55 and had worked 10 years or more. But because Monson was 47 Sentencing disparity is cited ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The indeterminate sentencing principle and parole boards were attacked Tuesday by the chief judge of the Minnesota federal judicial district. U.S. District Judge Edward J. Devitt told a Rotary Club meeting that Uie federal Parole Board should be abolished. Fixed terms should be meted out for each crime, he maintained. Devitt characterized the-indeterminate sentence principle as "an abysmal failure" in the 18 years it has been in effect in the federal system. "The disparity of sentences imposed for the same crime upon persons with the same culpability is the most glaring defect of the criminal justice system," he said, adding, "Disparity in treatment by parole boards is no kss evil than disparity of treatment by judges." Devitt said each of the nation's 25,000 judges has a unique background and set of values. It is only natural, he added, that each has a different judgment as to the kind and length of sentence in each case. While rehabilitation should be available for those who want it, Devilt said, the principle purpose for incarceration should be as a punishment and as a deterrent" "Punishment for crime should be quick and certain, but confinement need not be for a long term," he said. at the time, his pension benefits will be delayed until he turns 66-despite his 31 years with the company. "What .difference does it make how old you are?" asked Monson. "It should be how you perform your job with the company." Monson was disgruntled with the IH action and refused to go back to work at his job as a bodyman-mechanic under the new owner. He considered a lawsuit but decided against that action because his attorney told him it • "could cost me too much," Monson said. In addition, Monson was soured with a battle over vacation pay when the company sold the store. He took his case to the North Dakota Department of Labor and received $369 in vacation pay, but legal fees amounted to (300. So he's given up the job and it s $135 a week take-home pay to open a fix-it shop in his garage, which nets him about < 100 a week. The Monson's have dipped into savings but have not had serious financial reverses because Mrs. Monson also works. "The biggest reason I didn't go back was that there were men there who had less time on the job and were getting a pension," Monson continued. "I felt 1 would have had to work a couple of weeks longer just to make up the pay difference." Monson also said he was unhappy that the new employer did not offer a pension plan or vacation during the first year of operation. "It would be rough to work alongside a man who was getting (300 a month (in pension pay) when I wouldn't get anything," he said. R.H. Stevenson, manager of Ill's pension department, said it was possible that some of the formei employes were getting $300 a month under a temporary benefit option exercised by the company. The employes could get their regular pension immediately if they were over age 55, plus an additional benefit until they reached age £6. Monson's pension will be (169 a month once he reaches 55. We did exercise our option for the temporary benefit," the IH department head said. "This is an estimated provision of the plan." Monson thought age should not have been a major consideration. . Stevenson countered that the . age requirement was "consistent with plans throughout the American auto industry." "What be .wants us to do is give him individual treatment," Stevenson said. "The plan provisions do not provide for that. ' We cannot take him as an individual. To pick him out ... would be an illegal thing to do." • Stevenson said the company pension plan covered between 5,000 and 6,000 persons, but he was unsure how many other workers were in a situation similar to Monson's. Monson admits he could have gone back to work under the newouncr. And, UK?ne« owner wouldhaveliked to have him. •I definitely wanted Dick to work for me," said Joe Raymond, the new proprietor. "He's a good man." Monson emphasized his disagreements were not with Raymond, but said he still coukti t go back. "I wouldn't have been happy there," he said.
