Hurley, Wisconsin DIAL 561-4300 YPSILANTI (AP) —.Nine pounds of steak per meal, 84 quarts of milk per week, a 14- foot dining table, a seven bedroom house — these are some of the vital statistics of the 19- member Joseph A. LeBlanc family of nearby Plymouth. And in case anybody thinks Mrs. LeBlanc feels sorry for herself caring for her husband and children ranging from 21 years to nine months, he's got another thought coming Instead. Mrs. LeBlanc feels sorry for women with small families because "it's as easy to put a 10-pound roast into the Trout Creek Personals Mary Barney celebrated her birthday anniversary with a party given by her mother. Games were played and lunch was served. Nancy Perttula was honored on her ninth birthday anniversary with a party given by her mother.

Of course there is some help from the children, and laborsaving devices are a must. After dinner, for example, the boys take turns doing the dishes. The girls give the smaller children their baths and put put them to bed There are two ovens in the kitchen, extra refrigeration and lots of cupboard space and au- tomtic laundry equipment and a dishwasher. Still, Mrs, LeBlanc prepares something like 35 to 40 sandwiches per day for the kids to take to their various schools — Our Lady of Good Counsel school in Plymouth, St. Johns High School in Ypsilanti, St. Thomas High School in Ann Arbor, and the kindergarten at the Bird School near home. Transportation is provided for the family by a station wagon and three cars plus a number of bicycles and tricycles, all of which along with other gear are parked in an oversized garage of their new — and equally oversized — house. There are six bedrooms — with a seventh currently under construction — four bathrooms, a recreation room, a family room, a formal dining area and a parlor. With 17 children around, there seems to be an almost never- ending string of birthdays Just around the corner. A lusty "Happy Birthday" is sung once in February, March, May and September, twice in July, October and November three times in August and four times in December. The oldest child is 21-year-old Jeannie, named after her mother. The oldest boy is Joseph, 18, named after Mr. LeBlanc, the owner of a machine tool and die factory in Inkster The others were named mostly after relatives. The boys have been named so that the contraction of the name would be three letters. "If we have another boy it will be hard to find another three-letter name," Mrs. LeBlanc added. The other children are Dorothy, 20; James, 17; Donald, 16; Jon, 15; Peggy, 13; Timothy, 12; Thomas, 11; Sue, 10; Donna, 9; Mary Jo, 7; Michele, 6; Patrick, 4; Therese, 3; Daniel, 2; and Anne Elizabeth, nine months T.Kennedy Shows Artistic Talent By RAYMOND J. CROWLEY WASHINGTON (AP) —Talented, the eminent art director mused, as he looked at a sample of the young fellow's work. Talented. All he needs is some; years to develop himself. The young artist is Sen. ward M. (Ted) Kennedy of Massachusetts and the sample of his work is a painting of a couple of sturdy fishing boats, one green, one blue, tied alongside a brick building at Marblehead, Mass, i Now the art connoisseur, John ( Walker, director of the National! Gallery of Art, rendered his judgment with full recognition of the circumstances under! which this and other Tea Kenne- j dy paintings were executed. A year ago June 19, Kennedy' and friends were on a plane trip, to Massachusetts. The plane j came down — "like a toboggan; ride through the treetops" as Kennedy later related. | Kennedy fastened his seat belt,; but his back was broken. The' pilot and a Kennedy aide were j killed, everybody else aboard! was hurt. So it was six months in a Boston hospital for Kennedy, strapped onto a thing called a Stryker frame. This holds yourj back immobile but if you get! tired looking at the ceiling, it! will flip you over on your stomach. So what did Ted do? For his blonde wife Joan he did a winter landscape with a covered bridge and New England farmhouse. For Mrs. John F. Kennedy a red cottage on a spit of sand with a sailboat on the horizon. And so on. The picture of the two Marblehead boats was presented to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph P. Kennedy. When the Washington Post printed a color reproduction of it, an Associated Press newsman submitted the print to gallery director Walker lor his comment. Walker dictated the following statement, and note what a diplomat he turns out to. be: "Sen. Kennedy is a talented painter. Like Winston Churchill, he may not have all the time he wishes to develop this talent until his retirement, which we hope will be many years hence." All told, the senator did seven paintings in the hospital. Right now, Kennedy doesn't have too much time for painting. Politics is his main work, and many of his Senate colleagues figure he is a comer. Kennedy, now 33, was first elected to the Senate in 1962 to fill out two years in a seat once 8239 36-52 COLORFUL POP-ON —The latest news in leisure time wear —the bright, comfortable pop-on.

Just 50c. held by his brother, the late president. While in 'the hospital, he was re-elected to a full six- year term in 1964. "The best politician in the family," John F. Kennedy once called him — and some experts figure he has even more command over Massachusetts poli-i tics than his brother ever did. The Doctor Says By W. G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Q—My husband has bursitls of his shoulder. It is so painful he can hardly work. He h a s been taking cortisone tablets with no relief. He says an ice pack gives the most comfort Wouldn't heat be better? A—Bursitis is an inflammation of the lubricating sac attached to large tendons near the joints. The shoulder is one of the commonest locations Hydrocortisone gives the best results when it is injected directly into the affected bursa but, if the condition is chronic and adhesions have formed, this will do no good. Procaine, a local anesthetic, injected into the bursa will make it possible to move the joint through its full range and break up any adhesions that may have formed. .This can be followed by an injectior of hydrocortisone. The arm should be moved through its full range several times a day thereafter, even though this causes some pain. to prevent a recurrence of the stiffness. Heat is usually preferred to cold for this condition Short wave diathermy has also been used with success Q—My doctor says I have ridiculitis (sic). Is there really an ailment by this name? What is it and is there a cure for it? Pain pills don't help. A—There really is a condition called radiculitis or radicular syndrome but a lot of people wish there weren't. It is a compression-irritation of one or more nerve roots as they come out of the vertebral column. It may be caused by shingles or other virus diseases by a herniated or slipped disk, a severe curvature of the spine or a tumor of the spinal cord. The treatment would depend on the cause. If the pain is severe and cannot be controlled with pain killers the nerve root may have to be cut. Q—My son writes that he has syncope on venipuncture/ What is this? Does it require medicil attention? A—Your son faints when- • doctor or medical technician puts a needle in his vein. This is a fear reaction It can be controlled by having him lie down and use smelling salts during the puncture. The medical attention is the cause of the fainting—not the other way around. Q—Can a heavy beer drinkei become an alcoholic? A—Yes. Although the alcohol in beer is well-diluted, one bottle of beer contains about as much alcohol as a two-ounce shot of whisky.
