HELEN HELP US! by Helen Bottel PEOPLE FEAR THE UNKNOWN Dear Helen: The rich can afford psychiatric help for their "different" children, or put them in private ''homes" which cost over $1,000 a month. But the poor, or middle-class people must decide between a State institution or trying to keep them out of trouble at home. This usually means that your noigh- bors stay clear of you because they are afraid of the "crazy" one. You gradually lose your friends, because your life must revolve around the child who will be your charge all his life. If the child causes damage or hurts someone, the parents are blamol and ostracized with cries of, "Why didn't they put him away?' But if they DO put him In a cold, understaffed slate hospital, they can hardly live«with themselves. Moreover, our sons are borderline—not disturbed enough for hospitalization, yet too disturb^ and retarded for real life. Both of our boys started out as norms. I children. One almost died from nnelectric shock at age nine. His learning capacity stopped. At 23, he has the appetite of an adult in the mind of a child. He is always in trouble, mostly with delinquent teoas. Our other sou's cerebral palsy wasn't apparent until ho started school. He Ivis regained his coordination well, but he can't do mich more than read and write. Ho is 20. Mental Health Clinics and special education helped both, but not enough.

Is there any hope for people like us?—Mr. C.H. ••• Dear Mr. H: Call or write .your State Divisioa of Vocation•al Rehabilitation, whose headquarters are at the State Capitol. With the proper training your sons can probably become self-supporting; this, in turn, may generate enough self-pride to keep them out of trouble. And when neighbors observe they "go to work like other poople" their fears will recede. Dear Helen: I am in my 50s, and iid to quit work four years ago due to ill health, I always knew my husband was running around, but because none of the affairs lasted long, Ididn't cause a funs. After all, I loved aim a ad, besides, I was busy with raising my family and holding mi- job. Since the children are gone and I'm at horn?. I've noticed more, I fanally caught my husband dead to rights with my neighbor. He beat mo badly and (old mo tt I ever told anyone he would throw me out. Safd I had no witnesses so if I divorced him, I couldn't get support. What has happened to our laws when they don't protect women? I have a choice of staying on with a cruel, unfaithful husband, or leaving and going on relief. He wants me to leave, because now that Fm not working, I'm a needless expense—I can no longer pay my way. Doesn't a man have to give his wife anything for 36 years of marriage?— LONELY Dear Lonely: A lawyer can tell you that, if facts are as you state them, your husband cannot leave you penniless. I'm not a lawyer, so deal me out of this controversy.-H. Bennett to Announce EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) After touring G8 of Arkansas' 75 counties, former Atty. Gen.

By CYNTHIA LdWRV AP feleViston*Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - to the wake of the stress and pre« empted programs of recent days, network television settled back to something like normal over the weekend. there WAS nothing extraordl* nary going on, and it was sort of relaxing. Contributing to the "business as Usual" look was another of those teen»age beauty contests on ABC Saturday night, There were alt the reruns, of course, And there was baseball and on CBS the Masters Golf Tournament, NBC's Telephone Hour Sun* day was primarily devoted to fine solo and choral singing by the choir of the famous Bach festival of Bethlehem, Pa. There was soms attempt to give the early evening hour the form of a documentary but just enough to provide a peg for the music. "PEL," the educational network's Sunday evening program, managed to touch some sore spots by scheduling, on the eve of the income tax deadline, a short feature on tax loopholes not available to the vast majority of citizens. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy presented some statistics about loopholes— one man worth more than a billion dollars who paid less than $700 in taxes two years in a row; 35 persons with annual incomes of more than $500,000 who paid no taxes at all, And then, to the jaunty strains of "Nice Work If You Can Get It," the program demonstrated the way the laws about capital gains, oil depletion allowances, municipal bonds and even joint returns by husbands and wives can chop down the debt of some lucky taxpayers, No television reviewer can ever become a regular viewer of any one television series, so it has to be by chance that almost every time this writer tunes in on "Bonanza" it seems to be Dan Blocker's night to be the principal star of the show, and almost every time Hoss is having woman troubles. Sunday night's show as a sudsy affair, with Hoss busily meddling in a family situation and straightening out the bent if not broken relationship of a man and his wife and children. The man, it seems, had withdrawn to whisky and brooding after the death of an older son in an, accident. The amazing Julie Harris, who is as likely to turn up in "Tarzan" of a Western as in "Victoria Regina" or Florence Nightingale in a drama special, was the lonely, neglected wife. Hoss wasn't really in love with her— gosh, no— but he was a gentle understanding giant who brilliantly got the husband to quit belting booze and back to his family by the simple expedient of having a fist fight with him. It was an interesting way to attack the problem, but one must remember there was practically nothing in the story to indicate that it was really a Western. The fight put the show back in its proper category. CBS will devote its Tuesday night news hour to a report of the recent visit of its correspondent, Charles Collingwood, to Hanoi.
