Russian a/d cutback noted Today in history By GEORGE GEDOA Atuclated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - For the first time in 25 years, the Soviet Union is not financially supporting any major non- Communist Third World nation, and a new report by a private research group says the Russians may nave given up in the "foreign aid race." The study noted that the concept of foreign aid has been critkued in the United States for years by those who say it has no value in gaining political influence in poor countries. And the report by the Institute for International Policy suggests that Communist countries may have reached that conclusion. "Do you realize that we have given away a quarter of a trillion dollars in foreign aid? Now where are our friends? There're all gone. You cannot find them," Rep. Otto Passman, D-La., a long-time foreign aid critic, said last year. The study indicates Passman's lament could have been uttered with equal fervor in either Moscow or Peking. The report says the Soviet Union has spent millions of aid dollars in such countries as 6^-SCHICKEN Bring this coupon to Charlie's Pizza and SAVE 75 C onj BUCKET OF CHICKEN 1 *hile chicken irld choice of salad, colesb* or tossed, |it6c loast and potatoes.

Yet my obstetrician tells me that some spine-injury victims, who have also suffered nerve damage, have had successful pregnancies. I would appreciate any information you might have. I have had an Xray of the uterus and no abnormalities were discovered. — R.N. Most miscarriages are nature's way of preventing the birth of a defective child, of discarding a blighted ovum (egg).

In some miscarriage-prone women a hormonal imbalance exists, and it is treated with hormone supplements to improve the site of egg implantation.

Can you tell me o( any free clinks I can go to for help? Since my mother's third divorce nobody seems to cart about my health. Thank yoa.-S.B- Explain your situation to a school nurse. If there is none in your school, confide in a trusted teacher or relative, who can find help for you. You, more than the average youngster, need medical advice, especially if your emphysema is the rarer type related to fibrocystic disease of the pancreas. This stems from a birth defect, and it can cause many complications in later life. There is no reason why a young girl like you should be cast adrift medically, no matter how many divorces your mother has had. Dear Dr. TbosteMD: Maiy lights I awakned from sleep with the feehag that I sbnld go to me bathroom to nrhute.

My qKstta: Is It damaging to the Madder to ptstpooc emptyhg it this way?-Mrs- P.B. The rule is to urinate when the urge is there. Chances are the relief offered would make sleep more likely than holding the urine. Developing this habit of not urinating can produce problems later on—for instance, bladder infection, to which women seem most prone. Emphysema can be controlled.

The study notes that State Department witnesses 20 years ago used to frighten Congress with details of a "Communist aid offensive," but it said "If there ever was a real aid race between East and West, the West has won by default." It says the Soviets, for the first lime in a Quarter century, are not underwriting a single major non-Communist country in the Third World, concluding, "Unsuccessful in saving the world from capitalism, the Russians are at least saving themselves a lot of money." China has been trying to woo several African countries with aid programs but its goal of reducing Soviet influence in them generally has not been successful, the study says. Citing State Department statistics, the report says Egypt received Soviet economic assistance totaling 112 billion before expelling Soviet personnel from the country in 1972. Since then, Egypt has developed close ties with the United States. The leftward shift in Chile and Argentina earlier this decade attracted Soviet bloc aid commitments totaling $756 million, according to the report, but both countries have since undergone rightist coups, reducing Soviet influence to a minimum. China absorbed an estimated $1.8 billion In Soviet aid In the 1950s only to turn into Russia's bitterest enemy in the 1960s and 1970s, it said.
