Dear Dr. Thosteson: We have read a lot lately of people having their jaws wired together in order to lose weight. What kind of liquids would one have to take? It seems to me that there are many rich soups, etc., which are full of calories. Is it taking liquids only that causes weight loss, or just the fact one isn't eating solid food? - L.C. This jaw-wiring procedure has been successful, although I don't know how many times it has been tried. The reasons for its success are conjecturable but it isn't because a liquid diet is substituted for solid foods. Frankly, I dare say at least part of the success is psychological. Some folks get fat because they eat too much at meal time; there are others who get fat because of what they eat between meals. They nibble all the tune, sometimes even insisting that they don't eat between meals or that "the little bit I eat between meals isn't enough to make any difference." Sometimes (rather often, I think) some of them nibble without really being aware that they are doing so. Well, with jaws wired shut, they can't nibble. Besides that, they have to make something of a project of eating, so it is possible to govern very accurately the amount they eat. Result: they can be kept on a diet of say 1,000 calories a day, and they lose weight. Food for Thought Growing up hot any easier By JEAN MAYER Professor of Nutrition, Harvard University Teenagers today seem to have so many social, political, educational and financial concerns that as parents, we often overlook the one worry that all teenagers have (but rarely discuss) — concern about the changes that are going on their bodies. life-styles have become so relaxed that most of us think that, somehow, growing up has become easier too. Not so. Most American boys are still led to believe that men should be tall, broad-shouldered, narrow-hipped and look like an All-American. By the time they reach adulthood, they have accepted the fact that, for most of them, this is an impossible dream. But during adolescence, if a boy doesn't see it happening, he worries. He frets a lot about the girdle of fat that often appears around the hips and thighs in early puberty as well as about the slight development of tissue right under the skin around the nipples. These physical changes may make him fear that he's developing the wrong way and cause considerable anxiety, especially when he keeps his fears to himself. It would certainly ease his mind if he knew that this is a natural phase which quickly passes. A receding chin, a cowlick, protruding ears, a big nose, dimples — all these are a source of dissatisfaction or embarrassment. But worst of all is acne. Indeed, as many as three out of every four boys complain of some skin trouble. Acne is caused by an imbalance of hormones during puberty, and usually clears up with time. In the short run, the only help is cleanliness, plenty of rest and parental reassurance that the condition is due entirely to emerging manhood. I wish 1 could give you a list of foods which would help cure acne. But unfortunately, no studies have yet proved that any one diet is any more effective than any other. Another sensitive issue to an adolescent boy is his height. Long before puberty, little boys know that being tall somehow means being more masculine. In fact, it's been shown over and over that when a group of adolescent boys who do not know each other are put together, they will instinctively tend to choose the tallest boy as their leader. And it sometimes happens that one member of a group will mature much faster — or much slower — than the rest. In any group between the ages of 12 and 16, about 15 per cent will be growing faster than the rest, and 15 per cent will be behind. Both groups have extra problems. The simple reason is that, for a teenager, being different is always bad. Early maturing boys have the advantage socially and at school. They date the prettiest girls, get picked as captains of teams and are looked up to as being leaders whether they have real leadership qualities or not On the debit side, they may have trouble with adults. Often, they find themselves thrust into social situations that are beyond them emotionally. They are expected to behave like adults, while, in many ways, they are still just children. Worse still, their parents may continue to refer to their strapping six-footer as "my little boy" and treat him accordingly. Life is even harder for the late maturer. He gets passed by for leadership, turned down for dates, skipped over in team choices. When he finally does catch up, he, and everyone else, breathes a sigh of relief. Though he may not realize it at the time, he will have gained in the long run by his painful experiences. Late maturers are often more thoughtful, more sensitive, and more understanding in dealing with other people. They have had to face and live through a big problem of their own. Whatever your teenage son's level of maturity — whether he is a late maturer or an early rnaturer or somewhere in between — encouragement, support and frequent praise of all the good non-physical qualities that he possesses are the greatest contribution you can make to your son's adolescent years. There's another factor which probably enters, in: For most of us, there is a psychological satisfaction in food we can chew. While there are low- calorie foods that are chewy and satisfy this wish, it's a little too easy for the person with a big appetite to start reaching for high-calorie foods, for candy, nuts, pastry or whatever instead of, say, celery. Soups — except cream coups — are designed more for taste than for calories. Some of them contain fat globules, high in calories, but they have little protein unless chunks of meat are included. However, liquids can be rich in calories (malted milk, for example!) or can be made quite rich in protein if desired. Do you remember the "tin can diets" that were popular a decade or so ago? You had a can of rather thick liquid which represented a fixed number of calories, but with carefully measured protein, fat and carbohydrate. If you stuck to the "tin can diet" you lost weight! But if you ate top many cans of the stuff, you didn't. Actually those liquid mixtures were invented originally to help invalids gain weight; they were easy to eat, could be given in addition to regular meals. So there's no great trick to working out a liquid diet for the jaw-wired folks: ample protein (much of it from milk fortified with milk solids), some vitamins, limited fat, limited carbohydrate including sugar. Mainly, I think it's psychological, plus the aspect of effectively preventing nibbling. You could do the same thing without having your jaws wired. But too many folks just don't. Dear Dr. Thosteson: Is it all right for a diabetic to drink diet soda? One doctor some time ago said no but now the answer is yes. This concerns an elderly lady. — Mrs. S.T. Since the diet sodas do not contain sugar, yes, it is all right for people with diabetec to drink them. Note to L.L.: Exercise does not and cannot increase the size of the bust, except as it may improve the muscles of the chest underlying the breast. If it improves your posture, then there may be a seeming increase in size, but that's all. You can lose weight if you really want to! Dr. Thosteson's booklet, "Lost Secrets of Reducing," tells you how — naturally and without gimmicks — to the level best suited to your individual needs.

LOS ANGELES (AP) Could the unpralleled 65-year acting career of Helen Hayes be reaching the final performance? She thinks so, but she is reluctant to make a formal announcement. Once before she declared she had given up the stage forever. A few months later she was acting on Broadway in a revival of "The Front Page." written by her late husband, Charles MacArthur, and Ben Hecht. Still possessed with limitless energy, the 73-year-old actress was here overnight from Honolulu, where she had helped son James MacArthur with a benefit. In the morning she would be leaving for London to appear with Peter Ustinov in "One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing." It would mark her second Disney production and — she thinks — her last film. "I really must stop all this," she remarked. "It's such an interruption of rhy life ... I love my home (in Nyack, N.Y.), I love my house in Mexico. I would like more tune to enjoy them and to do the things I like to do. "Would I miss acting? I wish 1 wouldn't. I agree that I must like it or I wouldn't have done it all these years. "Somewhere inside me is a fear that I might get very lost without it. But I don't really think that will happen." Miss Hayes finally had to give up the theater because of a bronchial condition that was aggravated by backstage dust. "Whenever I did a play, I always ended up in the hospital for a week," she recalled. "I finally told myself I was such a bad risk 1 might as well have been a drunk." "The Snoop Sisters," the television miniseries in which she starred with Mildred Natwick last season, hastened Miss Hayes' urge to retire. "I was miserable doing it," she said. "It was like a jail sentence ... The hours that we had to work were terrible, not only for Mildred and myself, but everyone. "1 felt petulant, angry and sorry for myself. Oh, it's easy to sit on the sidelines and say, 'Why should television stars CROSSWORD PUZZLE ACMSS 1. Short match 25. Dutch 6. Ruminants commune 11. Lining material 26.

Helen Hayes' career has been laden with honors, including two Academy awards ("The Sin of Madelon Claudel," 1931; "Airport," 1970). Now she seeks a more reflective life. "I have a great interest and inquisitiveness about the world around me," she enthused. "If I ever start to get bored, I simply take a walk. Then the fun begins." 3HE5H 3HH REE 3Q BDEHH WOOD DUCKS 12.

(AP) - The United States Coast.Guard is checking barges that were operating in the Winona Pool of the Mississippi River last Saturday night to determine if one of them dumped oil bilge into the river. William Gannaway, Winona County Conservation officer for the state Department of Natural Resources, said he discovered an oil slick just below the Lock and Dam No. 5 about 8:30 p.m., Saturday and took samples of it. "There's no doubt in mv mind it was the result of illegal pumping of bilge materials from one of the barges," Gannaway said. Gannaway discounted initial reports that the oil slick stretched five miles. "It certainly wasn't that big. It was patchy and spread out over about a mile of the river." An original report on the oil slick came from a Wisconsin conservation officer, who said the oil was still on the river Tuesday. However, the Corps of Engineers said it could find no slick on the river on Wednesday. 22 33 36 30 i7 38 Par lime 28 min. AP Newjfeofu/e 2. Day's march 3. Nocturne 4. Links marker 5.

Incumbents QUESTION: Wlmt is a Wood Dittk't ANSW1-.R: Ilio Wood Duck is probably the. most beautiful of American water fowl, ll is found in woodland hikes, ponds, forest streams and swamps. It is distributed from Labrador southward to Florida. The male bird is 17 10 ^!0 indies long. The female is smaller. The male is touched with splashes of many brilliant colors: the female is duller with a white eye ring. They nest in hollow trees and lly low. dodjiine around trees where they roost. When disturbed, they make u pbinlive, whining, whistling sound. They are protected by state and federal taws. Ducks in general are webtboted birds that usually live near the water. They have large heads, slender necks, stocky bodies and shovel or spoon-shaped bills. They have a thick, soft plumage which is water-repellent. The voice, deep and resonant, makes a quacking sound. Ducks excel in swimming and diving, but have an awkward waddling gait. There are more than 40 different kinds of wild ducks living along the lakes and streams of North America. 7-20 IRubin Russell of Wnnnsotkct. R.I.. wins a prize for this (liicuioii.

By JOHN CUNNIFF AP Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) - Despite some bad experiences with controls,the idea of voluntary wage and price restraints continues to be entertained in business and government circles as a way of combating inflation. Apparently little support, however, exists for credit controls, even though it is in the borrowing area that the greatest strains currently are being made on the economic system. In testimony this week before the House Ways and Means Committee, the man most influential in determining the nation's credit policy, Arthur F. Burns, suggested the reimposi- tion of voluntary wage-price controls. Credit controls weren't discussed. The irony of this is twofold.

As rates rose, demand failed to diminish. Second, a law already is on the books that would permit the Federal Reserve, of which Burns is chairman, to enforce credit controls or allocate loans by a system other than price. Activation of the law would be automatic if the President were to determine it was "necessary or appropriate for the purpose of preventing or controlling inflation generated by extension of credit in excessive volume ..." The authority is contained in Public law 91-515, signed Dec. 23, 1969, permitting the President to regulate and control any or all extensions of credit. In commenting on the situation, the brokerage house of Paine, Webber, Jackson & Curtis claims that credit allocation via cost hasn't worked. The reason, it adds, is clear: "Interest rates have not reached a level whereby the borrower has incurred any real cost." The payment by a corporation of 10 per cent a year on a bond issue might appear to be costly, the broker explains, but that's only if you overlook the fact that nearly one-half of that is written off by the 48 per cent corporate tax rate. The remainder is likely to disappear in inflation. That is, the corporate borrower will be paying back in cheaper dollars. Assume a 5 per cent annual inflation rate and the entire cost is dissipated. In the view of some financial men, consideration of credit controls now may have become an academic rather than a practical exercise. They feel that signs of lessening credit demand soon will appear.
