•Abb At U of I Medical School: ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, MON., JAN. 31, 1972 Page 8 Saving the marriage may destroy the partners By Abigail Van Buren [6 \m bv CMetfs Trtbtfnt-N. Y. NIWI synd., Inc.] DEAR ABBY: What has happened to you? You used to encourage married couples to do everything within their power to save their marriages. Lately, you give the impression that divorce could be the answer for some couples. Why? FAITHFUL READER DEAR READER: Because I think it's more important to save people than marriages. And in some cases, in an effort to save the marriage, people have destroyed themselves. DEAR ABBY: Our 7-year-old printed the following letter to Santa: "Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is for my mommy to quit smoking because I love her very much and don't want her to die. If you bought more toys for me please give them to some other little boy because all I want is a Mommy who doesn't cough anymore, and doesn't get nervous when she can't find a cigaret butt. Thank you. BILLY" His Mommy cried when she read it. But she's still smoking. Sign me "Billy's father," or more appropriately, DISGUSTED DEAR DISGUSTED: Mommy 's hooked. If she really wants to kick the habit, she can, but she'll need encouragement and understanding, not contempt. DEAR ABBY: I am 13 years old and I have four big problems. A big nose, two big ears that stick out, and hair that is very thin. I like to wear my hair straight and plain, but I have to keep brushing it all the time because if I don't, my ears stick out. I am very self-conscious about my nose, too, especially with these big ears of mine. Can you help me, Abby? I hope so because the rest of me is okay. FUNNY-LOOKING GIRL, DEAR GIRL: Excessive brushing makes hair oilier, so easy with the hairbush. Aiso, if your hair had some curl In it, it wouldn 't be so "thin" and your ears wouldn 't stick out. In a few years you can put your nose [and possibly your ears, too] in the hands of a plastic surgeon, so cheer up, Honey. DEAR ABBY: That letter from a nosy neighbor who wants to know if it's normal for a boy who's in the 8th grade to kiss his mother goodbye every morning, sounds like my neighbor. Please inform her that all my sons, ranging in age from 5 to 21, kiss me goodbye in the morning. I'm sure I don't kntfw where they get such "abnormal" idees. From their father, I guess, who's been doing it for 22 years. LUCKY IN GRANADA HILLS, CAL. DEAR ABBY: I wonder if other men have my problem, and if so, what can be done about it. I come from a quiet, soft-spoken family, and I am married to a woman who never speaks in a normal voice. She yells! She never tells anyone to do anything. She shouts commands. And she keeps shouting until the children shout back at her, which I do not like. She also hollers out of the doors and windows at the children until I am ashamed before the neighbors. I have spoken to her about it to no avail. I cannot even talk on the telephone at home for all the noise in the background. It is getting so that I hate to come home in the evening. What do you suggest? TIRED EARS DEAR TIRED: One who constantly shouts is usually nervous, irritable and angry. If your wife has recently developed the habit of shouting, she may need to see a doctor. If she was this way when you married her, remember, a man may fail in love with a dimple, but he has to marry the whole girl. DEAR ABBY: I am getting engaged soon and my fiance wants to give me a ring that has been a family heirloom for years. Last week he brought it over and showed it to me but Abby, I don't like it at all. It is really gaudy and I can't see myself wearing anything like that. Should I tell my fiance I don't like it? Or should I accept it so everyone else will be happy? SUFFER-RING DEAR SUFFER-RING: Ask him if he wants to give it to you as a "token" engagement ring, or if he expects you to wear it. If he expects you to wear it, level with him. CONFIDENTIAL TO "THINKING IT OVER IN PALM SPRINGS": Be sure you think it over thoroly. Money isn't everything. Sometimes it isn't even enough.

JOHNNY CARSON - 10:30p.m. NBC. to DES MOINES, Iowa <AP) A plan to increase the number of doctors who stay in Iowa after completing medical school has been unveiled by officials of the University of Iowa College of Medicine. School officials told the Senate Social Services Committee they hope to keep family physicians in Iowa by allowing them to serve their postgraduate residencies at community hos­ pitals throughout Iowa. Presently, only hospitals in Iowa City and Des Moines offer such postgraduate work. The plan is to be presented to University of Iowa President Willard Boyd Friday. "We're working now with three or four communities because of the resources there and the interest that has been indicated," said Dr. John Eckstein, dean of the medical college. The school's dean indicated that more communities would be asked to participate later. The university's vice provost for health affairs, Dr. Robert Hardin, told the committee that an unreleased study shows that "if a man is born in a state, receives his medical training in that state, serves his internship and residency in that state— there's an 88 per cent chance he will stay in that state." "When our students graduate, they leave Iowa because there are few internships and few residencies in Iowa," Dr. Eckstein said. The doctors said that it would not be necessary to establish internships in the scattered Iowa hospitals as "The internship as we know it today will disappear by 1975 and there will be nothing but residency programs." The school officials said they wanted to establish the residencies in "family" or genera) practice because that is the type of doctor rural Iowa needs. They speculated that once a doctor served his residency* in the affiliated programs scattered around the state, he. would move into a smaller town a. short distance away from the hospital where he did his postgraduate work. A Flurry of Weekend Accidents Nine accidents were reported over the weekend by Estherville police and investigations are continuing in three more. Four of the mishaps occurred Sunday. At 8:10 a.m. a car driven by James Francis Gilman, Estherville, was parking when it struck a parked and unattended car owned by William Hewett of Trimont. Earlier, at 9:40 a.m., cars collided on North Fourth Street. William Donald Carrison, Estherville, was heading south on Fourth, pulled to the right and was attempting to make a left turn into a driveway. Clifford S. Merril, Estherville, was heading the same direction and attempted to pass the Carrison car at the time Carrison was making the turn. There was some disagreement between the drivers concerning a turn signal. hi the afternoon there were two collisions of similar character just a block and less than an hour apart. At 3:07 p.m. at Sixth and Central, Corrine G. Guge, Estherville, had stopped for a traffic light and was hit in the rear by a machine driven by Jeffrey C. Dunn, Graettinger. Duhn was , charged with failing to have hik car under control. At 3:10 p.m. at Fifth and Central, Janice M. Rettinghaus, Arnolds Park, had stopped for a light and her car was hit in the rear by a car driven by Craig E. Loewenberg, Estherville. Loewenberg was ticketed for fail- Early Tax Return May Save Pains DES MOINES - Richard C. Voskuil, acting district director, Des Moines district office, today urged Iowa taxpayers to begin working on their 1971 income tax returns as soon as possible to see whether they had enough tax withheld during the year. By getting an early start in preparing their 1971 returns, Voskuil said, those who did not have enough tax withheld will have more time to arrange their finances to meet their tax obligation by the April 17 deadline. (Since April 15 falls on a Saturday this year, the deadline is Monday, April 17.) Voskuil said technical changes in the law had created an under- withholding problem for many taxpayers for 1971. "A substantial number of these taxpayers responded to a nationwide IRS alert during the year and made upward adjustments in their withholding, while others took no action when they should have," he said. To permit taxpayers an early start in figuring their tax for 1971, Voskuil urged employers to provide withholding statements, Forms W-2, to their em­ ployes as soon as possible before the Jan. 31 deadline prescribed by law. Among taxpayers who did not adjust their withholding during 1971, Voskuil said those most likely to owe additional tax are: Employes who earned more than $11,500 in 1971 and intend to claim the $1,500 standard deduction or itemize deductions totaling less than 13 per cent of their salaries. Single employes who earned $15,000 or more in 1971. Married employes who earned $25,000 or more in 1971 and whose spouses were not employed. Working couples. Withholding rates for 1972 have been adjusted by the recently passed Revenue Act of 1971 so that single employes earning up to $25,000 a year and married employes, whose spouses are not employed, with earnings up to $31,000 a year can generally expect to have their full tax withheld. ing to have his car under control. Friday afternoon at 3:45 two cars going west on Central collided at the M & St. L. crossing. Geraldine Bannister, Dunnell, Minn., was slowing her car and a following machine driven by Loretta M. Poland, Graettinger, slid when she hit the brakes and^ the two autos collided. A bit earlier, at 2:26 p.m. Friday three cars were involved, in a collision on Central Avenue. Lenora E. Heyse, Estherville, was headed west on Central and hit the rear of a car driven by Paul J. Roehl, Spirit Lake, mak- Three straight starvation winters in New York State hunting areas have reduced the deer herd to its smallest size of this century. ing a turn into the Holiday station. Roehl's car, in turn, hit a car driven by Vernon L. Zurn, Arnolds Park, who was leaving the station. Three accidents were investigated Saturday. At 5:23 p.m. at ^Central and W. South First St., fraf D. Brandt, Estherville, was stopped at the intersection waiting to make a left turn when a car driven by Emmanuel G. Stavros, Estherville, skidded into the rear of Brandt's car. Stavros was ticketed for failing to have his vehicle under control. .

But he said that was not necessarily helping the rural areas that are presently without medical care. "The problem for some time has been a trend for more and more graduates of medical schools to specialize rather than go into general practice," Hardin said. "When the older doctor dies or retires in the rural area, he is replaced by .a younger doctor in the cities." The medical school vice provost said he hoped that by establishing the scattered residencies in Iowa in family practice, this trend would slow. , The doctors said the problem was hot so much the number of physiciaisn who are graduated but medical planning. "The college of medicine in Iowa City will double in the number of physicians graduated in 1975 as compared to 1962," Hardin said, noting there will be 175 annual graduates by 1975. "What we really need in this state is a plan, of how to get medical care io' the people," Eckstein ; said. ','Tbe'''answer is not simply to create more doctors. Our problem involves organization and planning." Eckstein said the problems in the city ghettos differ from those in rural areas and the problems in one rural area differ from those of another. THIS IS MIGHTY COMFORTING TO BLUE CROSS AND BLUE SHIELD MEMBERS= HO BLUC CROSS HAD BLUC SHIELD fflCfflBCRSHIP HAS EVER BfiEft FOR USC OF BCI1CFITS OR MC Reasons. There has been quite a bit of news about cancellation of health care policies. Thank goodness Blue Cross and Blue Shield don't have to do that. We can listen to our social conscience. Our only profit is the well-being of our more than a million Iowa members, and that includes those who have had a lot of illness. Only folks who have failed to pay their dues, or made false statements in applying have ever been cancelled. No one else. One more thing: Blue Cross and Blue Shield allow people to keep coverage when they leave a group where they worked. Blue Cross and Blue Shield have never left these people high and dry. We have a special coverage for them which we urge them to take even though they are high risks for the most part. Being for people instead of profit makes a big difference.
