Lawmaker-mistress investigation continuing WASHINGTON (AP) - FBI agents arc questioning possible witnesses in a Justice Department investigation of the relationship between Rep. Wayne Hays and a woman, who claims she was paid J14,000-a-year in government funds to gratify his sexual desires. The public integrity section of the Justice Department's Criminal Division, recently established by Ally. Gen. Edward Levi to look into reports of official wrongdoing, is conducting the investigation, an informed source said Monday. Hays, 64, chairman of the House Administration Committee, has denied the claim of Elizabeth Ray that her duties as a subcommittee staff worker consisted of having sexual relations with Hays. Hays called Miss Ray "a very sick woman" and accused the Washington Post, which first published her allegations, of conducting a personal vendetta against him. In a statement, he called the article "malicious" and said he was considering filing suit against the paper. But the Post, in an editorial in today's editions, said flatly of Miss Ray: "She is Rep. Wayne Hays' mistress. That is why she is on the payroll of the committee of which the Ohio Democrat is chairman." The Justice Department is seeking to determine whether Hays violated any federal law if h« gave Miss Ray a government job in exchange for sexual favors. Hays fired Miss Ray on Monday. The lock was changed on the door to the office in the House Umgworth Building where, she said, she spent only several hours a week during the past two years and did no work. The Post reported today that Hays said Saturday he had never been in Miss Ray's apartment "except once, months ago." But Miss Ray said he had visited the apartment once or twice ,a week for about two years to have sexual relations with her. The manager of the To Your Good Health By Dr. George C. Thosteson apartment house in suburban Arlington, Va., was quoted by the newspaper as saying Hays had visited Miss Ray frequently. "Everyone at the (reception) desk knew who be was because he made no secret of it," said the manager, who asked not to be identified. "He'd come in here and say he was Congressman Hays and ask to be connected to her room." Meanwhile, Rep, Frank Thompson, D-N.J., chairman of the accounts subcmmmittee of Hays' House Administration Committee, said he, will recommend to his panel that any congressional investigation of the natter be conducted by the House Ethics Committee. .Thompson backed away from an earlier position Jhat he would ask his accounts subcommittee to look into the allegations against Hays, saying there might appear to be a conflict of interest. An Ethics Committee spokesman said no complaint had been filed as of Monday and that no action will be taken unless a complaint is filed. Hays' new wife, Patricia Peak Hays, who runs the congressman's Ohio office, was in Washington on Monday and was seen lunching with him in a Capitol dining room. Hays divorced his first wife, Martha Judkins Hays, in January after 38 years of marriage. U.S. military strength cited YOUNGGIRL CATCHER SHOULDHAVE PROTECTION Dear- Dr. Ttosttsoa: When heard ifs dangerous to Ule my s»n was Us Ugh schwl's baseball cat tier four years ago ke tort a athletic supporter to protect himself against "foul tips." It was a supporter with a cup. This spring my H-yeaMld daughter will be lie catcher on a newly-organized girls' soft ball team. Shouldn't she also be protected in that area with some kind of garment? — Mrs. RG. I guess catching runs in the family. With girls getting into sports once dominated by boys I imagine sporting goods manufacturers will be busy designing special equipment for them. To dale I know of no Female equivalent protector such as your son wore. At least the stores I checked had none. One woman physical'. education director advises mothers to improvise, possibly something along the line of large, well-padded sanitary napkins (not tampons). While boys obviously have a need for such protection, a foul tip is no respecter of gender. Be sure your daughter has (and uses) adequate protection for the breasts, too. Dear Dr. Tbestesn: I have a bad micro-valve, and I'm qiite confused. I really don't know what it is. I think it means that the blood is not getting to the heart last enough. I seem to get dizzy a tet easier than before. Is this common? Please tell me something about it — Mrs. C.C. I'm sure your doctor said "mitral" (MY-tral), not "micro." They do sound alike. I'll try to explain. A thick wall of muscle divides the heart into two halves. Each of these halves is in turn divided into two chambers—an atrium (upper) and a ventricle (lower). A valve controls the flow of Hood between each set of chambers. The valve between the two left side chambers is the one your doctor mentioned - the mitral valve. It controls the flow from the upper to the tower. From there the Wood continues on into circulation by way of the aorta (a Urge important artery). If the valve is faulty, the circulation is faulty, and this may account for diny speils. Much progress has b«en made in surgery to replace or correct faulty valves. If the defect is serious, your doctor may discuss it with you. My booklet. "How to Take Care of Your Heart," discusses this at greater length. For a copy, send 25 cents to me in care of this newspaper. Enclose a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope. Dear Dr. Thostesos: What do you think of a mother working S am to5 p.ra. wnSe she has an nrfant child (J months)? wm sbe too* fin her mother rten I'm gone » much? Win it hurt her psychologically? - Hn. It takes more than a few hours' separation for a child to "forget" the mother. Millions of women do what you are doing with no apparent harm to babies Much depends on the person caring for the child in your absence. An infant needs much love and attention in the first year. If she is setting that you needn't worry. You can make up for the daytime absence in the evening, when you both can doubly enjoy each other s company. De»r Dr. Thosttson: I have aspirin while drinking alcobolk beverages. Is it dangerous? I mentioned this to a drinking friend, and she Uxwgat It was ridiculous and funny. - M.T.M. Not funny, not ridiculous. Alcohol is a sedative. So is aspirin. Together, they can have a double effect, and together they can have a doubled irritation on the stomach lining. This is why those with "morning after" distress should use aspirin carefully, preferably with a glass of milk. If afflicted with problem fingernails or toenails, learn the practical, medically correct form of treatment. Write to Dr. Thosteson, in care of this newspaper, for a copy of his booklet, "Solving Your Nail Problems," v enclosing a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope and 25 cents. Dr. Thosteson welcomes reader mail but regrets that, due to the tremendous volume received daily, he is unable to answer individual letters. Readers' questions are incorporated in his column whenever possible. IR funds are raised SOUTH ST.

(AP) — Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says there is a balance of military power in the world today and it is "unuseful and too simplistic" to say the United States is no longer No, 1, Rumsfeld- denied charges by former California Gov. Ronald Reagan, who has said in presidential campaign speeches that the United States had slipped to No. 2 in military strength. But Rumsfeld refused Monday to use the phrase "No. 1." Instead, he said: "It seems lo me that trying to reduce it down to that kind of' formulation (ranking by numbers) is unuseful and too simplistic. It is in fact trying to describe a rainbow by using the words black or white." "It is just factually not correct 1 ' to claim America is No. 2 because "we have an adequate balance" of military power, he said. "Our armed forces are capable of doing the job today. Thai is, we have what I describe as rough equivalence."
