A Sigi of the Times It is a sign of the television times that this piece of Vien nese pastry, gooey at its heart and enough of a cream puff to attract children and little old ladies, starts with a young couple in bed, making love. But what the heck, you can see a young guy naked from the waist up in a deodorant commercial too Well, no matter, except to note that "The Strauss Family" gives no quarter to "Peyton Place," and uses some racy language to boot. Waltz, anyone? Now, getting back to that young man in bed. Who is he? Well, I'm glad you asked. He is Johann, the father, but before he became a father. Well, to be more precise, at this point he is a very young man, but his amorous endeavors result in him soon becoming an incipient father, with the young lady in question the incipient mother As it turns out, the incipient child is to be Johann, the son But before he arrives, Johann, the elder, does "the right thing" and marries the girl Thus ended their romance. He's Thersagjaly Disagreeable There have been many attractive and charming womanizers portrayed on the stage and in movies and television, but, in Saturday's debut, Johann, the father, is thoroughly disagreeable (as well played by Eric Woofe). It is, not ^ his womanizing that makes us want to throw apple strudel at him, but the fact that, even when he strikes it rich as a amous musical personality, he makes no attempt to relieve the financial struggle of his large family (wife and a half doten or so kids) while setting up himself and his mistress in snazzy surroundings. He is, in short, in this portrayal, no gentleman. He shows little inclination to love anyone but himself. This won't get you arrested, but he also doublecrosses the friends that helped him in his career. Well, anyway, there is one good performance — Mama Strauss—by Anne Stallybrass, and, as the grownup son Johann, whom she helps in his musical career—until he is ready to bloom as his father's rival—there is a fine portrayal by Stuart Wilson. On the whole, if one were to rate the debut on a scale of achievement, I think it would qualify as a three cheesecake production.

I would like some informa tion concerning the operation "vasectomy." My wife and have been married for more than 20 years and have five grown children — so you can see if we don't always take the needed precautions there is the possibility of unwanted children. There seem to be. two differ ent opinions — one says that sex drive is considerably de creased and the other says it isn't so, As there is no sperm pres ent at climax, does it not re duce the feeling of pleasure? I have always been under the impression it was the sperm that caused this feeling. We have been advised by my doc lor to have this operation, as he doesn't care to put my wife on the "pill." Have you had any experience along this line and what are your feelings on this? How long after the operation does it take to be free of all sperm? Would you advise this at my age? I'm in my middle 50s and my wife is about eight years younger. Dear Reader — There is no evidence that vasectomy decreases the man's sensations or responses. The changes of this nature after the operation are usually of psychological origin and frequently because the individual doesn't understand the operation. The sperm cells constitute a very minute portion of the or gasm, probably you can put all of the sperm cells in an area not much bigger than the head of a pin. Most of the material comes from the secretions of the prostate gland and the sfem inal vesicles. You may be inter ested to know that a number of years ago a type of vasectomy was advised to restore older men's sexual drive. It was finally concluded that it did not have any effect. There have been a few scary reports recently on the vasectomy, most of which are exaggerations in the public press of a theory advanced on early research work on animals. Since then a number of authorities have come forth and pointed out, in a truth squad action, thalt there is no evidence that having a vasectomy without complications causes serious diseases or other problems. : Both Must Decide You and your wife will have to decide whether you should have a vasectomy or not.Ttlm not sure why she can't take the pill. Some doctors use the pill to support a woman through menopause and thereafter to prevent post-menopausal changes. After all, they have the same effects as the normal female hormone. Your wife should not be too far off the time she would expect to undergo these changes. An alternative to the vasectomy is the intrauterine device (1UD). These have been highly successful and can be removed at any time. A man has to be tested over a period of time after a vasectomy to find out if he is still releasing sperm or not. It usually requires several specimens free of sperm before a doctor will feel secure that the man is no longer capable of producing sperm cells or indue? ing pregnancy. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
