BRANDSTADT, M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Assn. If your baby weighs less than 5 '/2 pounds at birth, regardless of the duration of pregnancy, he is considered to be premature. This is because such a baby requires special care if he is to survive. Babies that weigh less than 3V4 pounds can rarely be saved, and even if they are saved they have a very poor chance of developing normally. For the babies whose birth weight lies somewhere between these two figures the first month of life, and especially the first week, are extremely hazardous. None of the body systems in the premature arc developed to the point where they can readily adjust to life outside the mother's body. This is especially true of ftic breathing system. Because the reflex mechanism that makes us cough is weak in the premature infant, he may inhale mucus or milk and develop pneumonia. Furthermore, his diaphragm and other muscles necessary for breathing are weak. This is the reason that such a baby must be supplied with oxygen. Careful adjustment of the oxygen supply is essential because we now know that too great a concentration is the cause of a disease of the retina that in the past caused blindness in many premature babies. The digestive tract of the pre­ mature is also poorly prepared to take on the necessary job of converting food into blood. The baby's sucking and swallowing reflexes are weak and the strong digestive juices needed are also inadequate. For this reason, no attempt should be made to feed a premature until he is at least 12 hours old. Many of these infants are fed nothing for 24 hours and then are given only glucose or lactose solution by means of a medicine dropper. Another special hazard of the premature is an increased fragility of the blood capillaries. This may result in spontaneous hemorrhages anywhere in the body. The premature is born with a deficiency of vitamin C and K. Supplying these vitamins helps to control this tendency to hemorrhage. The premature needs skillful care if he is to survive. An incubator is essential because his heat-regulating mechanism has not fully developed. Every precaution must be taken to protect him from infection. Thus, when he is able to take milk, his mother's breasts should be pumped and the milk taken to him in the nursery. Transporting him from the nursery to the mother would incur loo great a risk of exposure to infection.

HUTNYAN WASHINGTON (UPD - Federal and state governments are taking action to soften the blow suffered by the property owner who must move his home or business to get out of the way of a new highway project.

Williams field Club Hears Attorney WILLIAMSFIELD - Att.y. Eugene Taylor, Canton, was guest speaker at the first fall mooting of Williamsfield Junior Woman's Club in the home of Mrs. William Herman. He discussed "Household Law." Mrs. Herman reported that there are nine new members with six present. They were Mrs. David Mailen, Mrs. George Mackey, Mi\s. Ronald Kelly, Mrs. Fred R. Shultz, Mrs. Larry Mattson and Mrs. James Curtis. The club will donate 12 dozen cookies Oct. 2 to the Galesburg Blood Center canteens. A letter from Miss Janet Pierson of Williamsfield was read. She thanked the club for sending her to music camp the past summer. Point to Project A GFWC project to "Strengthen the Arm of Liberty," was announced with each member contributing a dime toward this project. Plans were made by mental health chairman, Mrs. Larry Rice, to visit the club's adopted ward at Galesburg State Research Hospital. Six members volunteered to go and donate their time in visiting and entertaining. American home chairman, Mrs. John Potter, announced that the 15th District will have a sewing contest. Any pattern may be used, and prizes will be awarded for first and second place. Household hint was brought to light by the civil defense and safety chairman, Mrs. Richard Baird. It has been found that if one combines any clorox bleach and any form of ammonia, it goes through a chemical reaction causing dangerous fumes. These fumes cause irritation to the lungs and can be fatal to small children and elderly people. Mrs. James Self, kindergarten chairman, announced that starting Oct. 2, the 5-year olds will be in one class in the morning. Budget chairman, Mrs. William Baird, said the budget for the coming year totals $526.50. Of this budget a total of $260 is used for the main project of the club, the kindergarten. Hostesses were Mrs. Herman, M r s. Clinton Cannon, Betty Brown and Mrs. Larry Rice. The law provides a maximum $200 payment for residential relocation and $3,000 for business. However, the payments cannot be made unless the state passes legislation authorizing them. The Bureau of Public Roads said that since the effective date of the law •- Oct. 23, 1962—all state highway departments have set up machinery for giving relocation advice. 19 Taken Action And 19 slates actually have taken the appropriate statutory action to authorize reimbursement for moving costs. These are: Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin. About half of these already have made residential relocation payments during the six months the program has been in operation. Payments averaged from $40 in one state to $300 in another. (In the case of the higher average, the state must be putting up the extra $100 since federal funds cannot be used only to pay up to $200.) In addition, information from the Bureau of Public Roads indicates that five states have made payments to business property owners since the program was authorized last October. The business reimbursements covered 17 projects and the payments averaged statewide from $24 to $2,000. Bureau records show that during this six month period, about 23,000 residential and business properties had to be relocated to make room for a highway going through. Local Administration This new program — to make life a little easier for the man dispossessed by the highway department — will be administered on the local level. As in the case of other aspects of the federal aid highway program, Washington supplies the money and the states decide how to divvy it up. Then, its up to the federal government to make sure it has not been wasted. This is one reason why the states have been reporting to the federal Bureau of Public Roads on their relocation payments and providing other information on their programs. Bureau records show that about 77 per cent of the relocation checks sent out to residential property owners involved interstate highway projects. These projects comprise the largest portion of the federal aid program— with Washington paying 90 per cent of the bill. Bureau data also reveals that relocation primarily was a city rather than a country problem. About 90 per cent of the moves required were in urban areas.
