Mrs. Wiegand, her husbanc Robert, of Erlanger, Ky., and about seven others are estab Ushing a Cincinnati chapter o the Little People of America. Only persons four-feet-ten and under are accepted in the group founded by midget comedian Billy Barty in 1964. The LJttle People also have an auxiliary group of parents whose children are small. Mrs. Wiegand said the Little People are not classified as midgets or dwarfs anymore because medical evidence indicates there are 70 varieties of Little People. "It's funny, it really is." recalled Mrs. Wiegand about jeing with people her own size tt her first LPA convention -she is four-feet-eight. "Once you can learn to ac- ept the fact that you are little, ien you can accept anything Ise you encounter," she said, othing that organizing an LPA hapter has been difficult. "Every little person consid- rs himself different from other ttle people. Some are over- rotected and some just don't rant to be associated with oth- r little people. "But once you can accept ,1-ourself and your problem, you an accept the others." She said the Cincinnati LPA radius of the city and rnclud Dayton, Ohio, and Lexington Ky. Aside from the social aspecU -- "LPA is not a lonely heart club although there have been many marriages among th members," -- LPA is also ai educational, vocational and socially concerned organization. "We have people from Ph.D' down to ordinary guys," saic Mrs. Wiegand, noting the group is 2,000 strong in 12 districts across the country. Little People have two basi problems, she explained. Acceptance of others and physica difficulties . The physical problems are he biggest, she said, citing things like reaching the slot of ay telephones, drinking foun- ains and buses oo high. "I've twisted the steps are my knee a couple of times,' said Diane Juchan, "getting off buses. It's hardest when the bus driver doesn't get it up to the curb." At four-feet-ten, she doesn't ave the problems reaching that some others have, she said. "There are some gadgets," recalled Mrs. man had a Wiegand. "One wire to deposit coins. Some people carry portable stools to the grocery store but they get heavy."
