10E--Julv 16, 1972 Sunday Gaxette-Mail Charleston, w«*t VlrtMn -- Infant's Cry Helps Doctor Diagnose Problem CRY MAY BE CLUE TO DISORDER Dr. Murray Feingold NEW YORK (M-Does your new baby seem to cry too often?~or does he strain to cry but make very little sound? A pediatrician specializing in congenital disorders believes an infant's cry can provide valuable help in diagnosing problems such as cretinism, central nervous system damage and congenital heart disease--and has authored a new cassette tape program to train the other pe- diatdicians in this method. "So many disorders result in a characteristic cry--or a crying impairment--that physicians examining an infant should make him cry at some point in the examination, if he doesn't do so spontaneously," explains Dr. Murray Feingold, director of the Center for Genetic Counseling and Birth Defect Evaluation at the Boston Floating Hospital for Infants and Children. "The sound of an infant's cry offers audible confirmation of many rather rare disorders most practicing pcdia- tdicians don't see very often," says Feingold, "Most of these disorders are some form of mental retardation--such as cri. du chat ('cry of the cat') hypothyroidism, etc. Other ones may indicate some larynx deformity. "The examining physician should observe the quality of an infant's cry, the effort involved on crying and the ease with which the infant can be made to cry," Feingold said. "The pitch of a normal infant's cry Isn't screechy," he elaborated. "Intensity varies as the baby inhales, cries, and then trails off as the baby runs out of breath. When he's angry or upset the volume tends to be louded than when he's merely uncomfortable." CONTRASTING WITH normal infant cries, the cries of infants with central nervous system damage have almost a "spine-chilling,' quality, Feingold observes. "Children with central nervous system damage usually cry with a high-pitched, shrill shrieky sound," he said. "The intensity may not be loud--the distinguishing characteristic is the pitch." Home Reveals True Personality Babies suffering from hypothyroidism (cretinism) seldom cry spontaneously, and may he difficult to make cry --and when they do, the sound is generally hoarse, low intensity and low pitched. "If the parent says the baby doesn't cry often, snap the bottom of its foot," Feingold counsels pediatricians in his Medcom self-teaching tape. According to Feingold, variations in the physical effort of a baby to cry should be noted ;.nd included in the diagnosis, as well as the audible qualities of the cry itself. "First of all, the physician should discuss the baby's crying habits with the parent," he said. "How often does he cry--too often?--not as often as normal? And how hard is it to make the baby cry? These are all very subjective questions, How Cun I? Q. Hew can I encourage brightly-colored f a b ri c s to stay bright when washing? A. You can preveut their graying if you will add » tablespoon of vinegar to the next to last-rinse water. Q. What is a good way to extinguish candles and do away with the usual unpleasantness of blowing them out and the risk of wax splashing on your favorite tablecloth? A. Simply let a drop of water fall from a clean spoon onto the base of the wick. Don't touch either the wick or the wax. This is even easier to do if you use an eyedropper. of course. But they are factors which should be included as a routine part of an infant examination." --. ^ . M 5 £ "I5INTS THE GRAND OLE OPRY Music City. USA-Nashville-TrmlTy bus, stay at Matador Motor Inn.

CHARLESTON YMCA $ PHONE 768-2101 FOR PET A IK By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer Your home may reveal your true personality, according to i n t e r i o r designer Virginia Frankel of New York. For instance, she says, color may reveal a lot about one's character. The designer had always decorated her own homes in white, but says that when she moved to her present apartment, she began using brilliant colors. "I decided that I had become a happier person," :she explained 1 , discussing her recently published' book, "What your House Tells about You." Other facts Mrs. Frankel says ones house may reveal about ones personality are: People who like bright, hot or acid colors -- oranges, reds, strong purples, greens -are often bold, adventurous, with it, generally happy, people. Blues and greens in the middle speak of coolness and caution. Beiges, grays and muddy pastels may be used by a person who stays close to the safety line in behavior and taste. * * * DARK,COLORS may be the sign of a moody, depressed person, although it may also be an affectation adopted in the belief it is an "in' look. But dark colors also may indicate a secure person. Listening to the nuances of her clients, Mrs. Frankel says she is able to pick up the real keys to their decorating needs -- they may need a more exciting background or a showcase. She says this listening is the clue to meaningful decorating because some people do not know what they want. In decorating for bachelors Mrs. Frankel has learned the girl traps which include fur rugs and pillows, chrome and glass tables, large deep sofas, hassocks, wine racks built-in lights and bar, hi-fi speakers and telephones in every room, kitchen gimmicks (for female visitors) cookbooks and so on. FOR MANY women decorating a home is such a traumatic experience they may become physically ill if the couch doesn't match the draperies. But contrary to popular thinking, Mrs. Frankel says, it isn't always the well-kept home that is a joy, not when the woman nags her husband 1 and children to maintain it, and they feel like interlopers. A warm, happy house has a lived-in quality, she points out. It^is comfortably messy and cluttered. Soil and stain spots blend in with other lived-in features. From a decorator's standpoint, she points out, the most important indicator of a happy home is "the aura of sharing. Each room reflects a husband and wife's needs and interests -- she will make sure he has his ottoman, reading light and large ashtray, and he will make sure she has a place for her easel, loom, sewing machine or collection of art or seashells.

Ma Bell's Daughters Get 'Raise' BUFFALO N. Y.-- Wi --Two of Ma Bell's daughters have taken to climbing her telephone poles. Mary Stabell and Carol Tyrer. former business office representatives for the New York Telephone Co., have accepted transfer to outdoor work--as cable splicer's helpers. "*!-*. girls are amazing," sar» Charl»^ Fields, a splicing forsfoan. He said the new crew Bombers "have performed very well in all phases of training." IN ORDER*to 'qualify for their new jobs the two women had to complete satisfactorily a three-week training program. The first two days of training taught safety procedures, a company spokesman said. "By the third day," he said, "they already had sunk the gaffs of their climbers into 30-foot telephone poles and advanced several steps upward." Equipping the women with a lineman's gear turned out to be a special problem. Almost all the equipment was ton large. "Even the smallest of these (men sizes) proved too large for the women,." the spokesman said. "Their fingers would only reach half way up in .work gloves, and ankle projections on climbers, v:hich go up the inside of the leg to the knee, were too long." THE PROBLEM was solved when the phone company ordered special gear. The two women said they both enjoy the out-of-doors. "That's the biggest factor in accepting this assignment," Miss Stabel said. She said she spends much of her off duty time as a sports parachutist. "Before I came to work for the company," Miss Tyrer said, "I worker) outside with horses and loved every minute ! of it." j Both women said they enjoyed their new jobs. About the only thing that has changed they said, was their hair style. "We've stopped putting m the curlers. A simole style proved best."
