Slop killiitfi ynnrnplf Breastfeedi n 2 controvers Saf.urrlfiy, .Inn. 2, J971 A-ll. Some areas of discussion are certain to breed controversy: one's reputation for having a good sense of humor; politics; one's philosphy of life. Among the many differences of opinion among women is the question of breastfeeding. Should the mother who bottle-feeds her youngsters feel guilty? Here is a frank letter 'from a mother who feels guiltless. DEAR DR. STEINCROHN: T am writing in regard to the controversy over breastfeeding What hogwash! Breastfeeding does not guarantee a child will receive loving care. It is just a point of getting off the ground. Child-raising is a long and winding road. Each person By Dr. Prtpr J. Stdncrohti should do his own thing — whatever it is. Whatever comes naturally. Love is love, whatever form it takes. I don't believe in this "mother's responsibility" jazz about breastfeeding. I meet too many self-righteous women who seem to feel; "I nursed my child. I'm wonderful. I gave." Mothers' responsibilities are never-ending. Remember that To mark anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Wiliam Thomas Mellenthin of 644 Orchard St. in Edwardsville will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary with an open house, on Sunday. Jan. 3. The couple will receive friends and relatives after 2 p.m. at their home. Mr. Mellenthin and the former Shir'ey Weckman were married on Jan. 2, 194B in Edwardsvile.

There are three grandchildren. <y£ Gay Reminders Add joy, color and charm to your kitchen with familiar motifs in towels, cloth.

I have four children from 3 to 13 years of age. I am loving and caring for them now as I did the day each was born. Breastfeeding was not one of the "gifts" I gave my children. Meantime I suggest to mothers that you get together and raise them with wisdom, insight, tears, love and whatever turns you on — but don't gloat over breastfeeding a child. I have yet to hear a grown adult say, "Boy, am I glad my mom breastfed me." — Mrs. G. MEDICALKTTES For Miss 0.: It is true that in many young women who have recently begun to have their menstrual periods, they may be irregular the first few months. However, in your case, I suggest you see your family doctor, rather than experiment with medicines advised by your friends. Especially, in view of your fear that you may be pregnant. Only you know whether or not it is a possibility. Depend upon your doctor to give you the real reason for "being 10 days late." There may be no definite indication why you should be concerned. Meanwhile, don't listen to the advice of young friends who mean well, but may get you into needless complications. * * * For Mr. T.: I wish we had some secret formula I might divulge which would guarantee that a person would never be subject to a-stroke. All we can do is deal ^'in generalities: mention some of the contributing factors — which may or may not be present in a given case. For example, we know that atherosclerosis is important. ,It blocks the normal flow of blood in the brain arteries. So we advise early that people try to keep normal weight; cut down, if necessary, on saturated fats; try to live in lessened daily tension; treat gout or diabetes if present. However, for last I leave the early and persistent care of high blood pressure. Although high blood pressure is not always a cause of stroke, it can be a factor if it has been present for years and left untreated. We have drugs to keep the pressure down, and by keeping it at safe levels for years, such treatment often can eliminate excessive pressures on arteries throughout the body including those in the brain. Prevention begins many years before a stroke is likely to occur. * * * Important tips are included in Dr. Steincron's Booklet, "22 Ways To Prevent and Treat Coronary Disease." For a copy, write him in care of the Alton Evediag Telegraph enclosing 25 cents in coin and > a stamped, self- addressed envelope.

She said, ..panel members who oppose legalJxt'tl abortion argue; only in terms of the rights of the felus, not in terms of the rights of the mother. 1 give the mother's rights higher priority." Actually, for such a ludy, and I use the term "lady" advisedly, abortion, no doubt, means little more than a word. For the unborn human, however, abortion Is cold blooded murder, Jn order to abort un early pregnancy, the doctor stretches the mouth of the womb to admit forceps or currette and then reaches in and scrapes out the baby. Since he must work by touch alone, often the baby is cut into several pieces and the head is crushed to make il small enough for withdrawal. The bits and pieces of the human are then disposer! of.
