Dear Ann Landers' I wrote to you several months ago to.ask what to do about my husband ticklth'g our^ three-year-old son, We had many arguments about it. I felt he was subconsciously antagonizing the child because Timmy always ended up crying. My husband said I was crazy — that it was all in fun and the child was crying from exhaustion, but he really liked it. Your response was, "Tell your husband to knock it off. Tickling can be an expression of hostility. The one being tickled may laugh — at first — but after a while the frustration becomes too much and anger sets in.j One of these days your son might retaliate with knuckle sandwich." Today) Ann, we both won our our p5iht. Enclosed is the clipping that tells the story. When my husband read it in the paper his face went white. Love you, Lady! — To The Victor Dear Vic: I must let njy readers in on "the enclosed." Here it is —- a UPI story from Zanesville, Ohio. Dateline Cleveland: "li Edward Bruening could talk these days you can bet I he'd be bragging abqut his 17-month-old son, Jamie, who packs quite a punch. "Bruening needed three hours of surgery Monday to repair a br<*en jaw suffered in a tickling session with his 23-pound offspring. " 'Every morning he goes to wake his daddy up,' said Mrs.'Bruening. "lliey were on the bed tickling each other. Both of them relaxed on the pillow for a moment, then Eddie tickled him again. " ' Janjes came around with a quick right and hit him on the left side of the jaw.' "Bruening, who weighs 147 pounds, said his jaw hurt and 10 minutes after the punch he couldn't hold a cigarette in his mouth. He went to Lutheran Medical Center on the advice of his sister, Jdnice, a clinician at the hospital. i "The doctors told him he had a fractured jaw apparently because his son hit him just right. They then used 20 wires to keep his jaw shut for the next six weeks." Dear Ann Landers: I was struck by the letter from Ihe mother whose young daughter was a runaway — or( drugs, and sexually promiscuous. The mother asked, "What happened? According to the Bible, Train up a child in the way he should go and he will not depart from if " That lady nb^s to reread her Bible. Proverb 22:6 says, "Train up a child in the way he should go and WHEN HE IS OLD he will not depart from it." Many young people today are influenced greatly by peer pressure. They often reject their parents' counsel in order to be "one of the group." But God promises that the child who is raised properly will eventually go in the direction of his early training and the ingrained qualities will win out. This is a wonderfully supportive'thread of hope that God gives all bewidlered parents. — A Mother In Denver Denver , Dear Mother: What a comforting letter. Thank you (and countless others) who pointed out the misquote. I didn't realize I had so rtiany Bible scholars in my reading audience.

Alcohol warning for pregnant women WASHINGTON (UPI) Th^ government today has taken the first step in what could result in labels on alcoholic beverages which warn pregnant > women of , the potential harm drinking may do to their unborn children. The' Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms said it wants to know as much about the problem as possible so it can decide if such warning , labels are necessary and feasible if required. Other ways of warning prospective: mothers will also be explored. Last year Food and Drug Commissioner Donald, Kennedy urged the Treasury agency to require such labels, saying fetal alcohol syndrome is a growing problem. The BATE, in a notice to be published in ^ Monday's Federal Register, said fetal alcohol syndrome is clinicaUy observable and is most often characterized by deficient growth of the baby, the development of an abnorrnally small head, small cracks on the eyelids and mental retardation. "Evidence from both animal and human studies indicates that daily consumption of three ounces or more of 100 percent alcohol (ail equivalent of six drinks) produces a risk to fetal outcome," the agency said. "Damage to the fetus can occuf at the early stages of (B 'enatal development, even before the woman is aware she is pregnant," it added. "In this respect all women of child bearing age should be aware of the possibility of,FAS in potential offspring. Oftentimes the FAS patt^ is identified first and the maternal alcohol intake is documented later." It- also said that binge drinking or heavy onetime doses of alcohol during the critical stages of development of the fetus may be as important in the development of the syndrome as average daily drinking. "In summary, the research on the impact of maternal alcohol consumption on human infaqts has clearly identified the morphol(%ical characteristics of fetal alcohol syndrome," it said. LEES.

J.,Bakunas is falling through the air — he's a movie stuntman — he starts raising the price he'll get for the fall. , Most of the time he negotiates the" fee after a performance,, and he denies reports of $50,000 payoffs for one stunt. "Fifteen thousand would be more like it, but the price sometimes goes up while I'm falling through the air." Visited on location where he was stunting in the Melvin Simon production "The Stunt Man," Bakunas was hobbling around with one leg in a full cast. But he was still working. "The cast was written into the script," he said, after he took a tumble and was injured for real. Bakunas busted up his lower leg bones in what he called one of his most daring falls ever — onto the conical-shaped roof of the Hotel del Coronado which was recently designated a national historic landmark. "I like to do stunts that are eally'hairy," Baknuas said. "If they don't make me shake, I don't think they're good." He's only been in the business four years and has already established three records: falling222 feet; being aflame for 1 1-2 minutes and jumping 60 feet out of a helicopter. "I feel that I have to do better than others because I'm new to the business." The Coronado robf assig- nemnt was accepted by Bakunas after 12 other stuntment turned it down. It required falling from a balcony near the top of the main building, 15 feet to a roof which has an 80- degree slope, - and being careful to land between two protruding gables while avoiding the main hip of the roof. "The' fall was farther than it looked," Bakunas said. "When I hit that roof... I was a passenger." One of his legs was in the wrong position when he bounced from one gable to the other and that'|5viKhere the damage was done. Bakunas, 26, came to his craft after studying physics and a few years of pre-med in New Jersey, then teaching stuba diving, skiing "and doing a lot of things I wanted to do." He earns upwards of $100,000 a year stunting and undisclosed thousands more from Air .Safety Products, in Metaire, La., in which he is a part owner. The firm manufactures air safety bags (for fire departmerits to use instead of nets to catch jumpers). The bags were inve;ited irt 1952, but Bakunas designed some improvements he has patented and now the firm has a six-month backlog of orders. When he isn't stunting Bakunas is traveling around tlie world giving fire department demonstrations by falling into his air bag from tall buildings. Bakunas considers himself a scientific stuntman. He approaches each stunt with great deliberation. If he's going to turn a car over, he knows just what it will do . NOTICE OF .

I'he Treasury Department said last week the funding total for the period ending last Sept. 30 was $9.3 billion more than during the previous fiscal year. The figures meant that $17 out of every $100 collected by the federal government went to the 50 states, the District of (Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The Treasury collected $401 billion during the last fiscal year and 17 percent of that money was returned directly to state and local governments. During fiscal 1976, when $300 billion was collected, 19.7 percent was shipped back to governmental units, the statistics showed. New York received the largest share, $7.4 billion. California was second at $6.8 billion, Pennsylvania was third at $3.6 billion and Illinois fourth,at $3.2 billion. Pacific Gas and Electric ) Company ) . Project No. 77 'Star Trek' stars are humahheings, too LOS ANGELES (UPI) Members of the "Star Trek" cast are really only human after all, even Dr. Spock, but they don't appreciate having it pointed out, for the amusement of audiences, how often they fluffed their lines aad blew their scenes on the Starship Enterprise. ~-^at was the point of a suit filed Wednesday by the Screen Actors Guild against Norway Pictures and producer Gene Roddenberry. The suit charged them with circulating a "blooper film" made up of out takes — film that could not be used in the television series because of errors — from the "Star Trek" production, edited for humorous effect. The Guild was not amused, asking $25,000 punitive damages for allegedly harming the careers of the cast members by picturing them as incompetent.
