Within 30 minutes, three women converged on him. One wanted to know if she should stay on The Pill — or is the I.U.D. better — or should her husband have a vasectomy? Another woman said she h a d been hoarse for tvo weeks and would he look in her throat. The third woman — Ann. you won't believe this — dragged him into the utility room /ird confided that she had just noticed a lump in her breast and would he mind taking a quick look and put her mind at case. This particular evening was worse than most but every time, we go out it's the same story. Why do people do this? Is there a solution 11 — The Dor-tor's Wife DEAR WIFE: People do this because they r-an't resist t h e temptation to get somethin for nothing. (Its usually a dame.) One doctor solved the problem this way: Whenever a clod approached him at a social affair for professional advice he stopped her cold by saying — "t ; n- dress so I can examine you.'' * * * DEAR ANN: I have a new mother-in-law problem for you. Mummy is 70 years old and we just found nut I hat she is an alcoholic. She has been falling a lot and has broken a leg, an arm and a shoulder. It never occurred to us that Mummy was drinking. Tn fact, she never touched a drop as far as we knew. Twice last week she was saved by the rescue squad. (The landladv h:is a kev and looks in on her from time to time.) Yesterdav mv husband found Mummy passed out on the couch with a M<;;!TF.I) cigaret in her hand. He told me this morning that we tvni.st take her into our home. Ann, I don't know what to do. My mother-in-law and I never got along.

Answer: No. But you can be sure of this: the student with a limited capacity to learn but an unshakable will to learn will learn more than the one with a brilliant potential for intellectual achievement but only a shallow urge to buckle down to learning. You can see how rare it is for the ability and • the will to learn to be combined in one person by just counting the Abraham Lin- coins who come along. Do minor battles add spice to marriage?

These fights, no matter how inconsequential they seem and no matter how much fun it is to make up after one of them, can conceal a hint of serious rifts to come. Should u table-drummer be shushed? Answer: Yes; if it annoys others when an individual drums on the table consistently and, seemingly, without reason. Corrective action should be taken, though, to find out why he does it. If he were arbitrarily stopped — through physical means or through an implied threat — the table-drummer may suppress feelings that could break out anew in something more serious than simple table-drumming. • <0 1979, "Wo*- Feature* Syndicate, loc.)

In addition to the personality conflict, I am afraid to have an alcoholic in the house — especially a chain smoker. I'll have to be a fire marshal, a nurse and a caretaker. How far should I go? — PANICKED DEAR PAN: Go as far as you must, but win this one. Your mother-in-law needs custodial care or a constant companion. If your husband has brothers and sisters, they should share the cost if Mummy can't manage it on her own. Whatever the sacrifice, be prepared to make it.

I fact, I am healthier than most straight, women who insist on hanging the "sick" label on me. 1 do not want a man or a straight woman or a bisexual woman. And most of all, 1 do not want to be bothered by curious straight people who view me as a freak or a conversation piece. I enjoy a pleasant life with a single lisbian like myself.

October wedding planned Mr. and Mrs. Everett J. Snyders of 1105 W. Main Street in Grafton, are announcing the engagement of their eldest daughter, Janet Kay, to Charles Joseph Niebrand.

Her fiance is a 1966 graduate of Gillespie High School and, has served in Vietnam. He is employed by Laclede Steel. The couple is planning an October wedding. MISS SNYDERS DEAR DR. STEINCROHN: I'm net stubborn, just anxious. My 21-year-old son has had two attacks of rheumatic fever. The first when he was 12 years old, the second a few weeks ago. He had sore throat, was in bed with swollen joints — the whole bit. His doctor says he has been fortunate that he hasn't had any heart complications. But the problem is this. Should he or shouldn't he take penicillin? The doctor says there are no two ways about it. Unless he does he's liable to have more attacks and severly damage his heart. But I'm afraid of ^penicillin. What would you do? — Mr. V. COMMENT: Let your doctor carry the burden of anxiety. Let him weigh the advantages of penicillin against the possiblities of a penicillin reaction. Your son is fortunate in not having had any heart complications. Why depend on Lady luck in the future rather than on penicillin which is more likely to prevent serious troublesome complications? What you are doing is assuming that your son will not get another attack of rheumatic fever. This is wishful thinking. For example, a recent study by Dr. Leon Gordis and associates of Baltimore showed that continuous prophylactic anti- streptococcal medication is necessary in young people who have had rheumatic fever. This is so because recurrences are not uncommon. They studied 41 patients h o s p i t a la z e d for acute rheumatic fever. Ages ranged from 21 to 53 years. Twenty- four of the patients who had attacks were from 21 to 29 years of age. Twelve of the total cases were recurrent. There were seven second attacks and five cases which were third or more 'attacks. Eight of the recurrent attacks were in patients from 20 to 29 years of age. None of these patients with recurrent attacks of rheumatic fever was receiving regular penicillin prophylaxis at the time of the acute attack. So you see, Mrs. V., your son is still liable to have future attacks of i-heumatic fever unless you protect him. If I were you, I'd follow the doctor's advice. Have your son take preventive doses of penicillin prescribed by him — over a period of months and years, if necessary). There's much less potential danger to his heart in following this regime. Doctors are aware of possible penicillin reactions and take precautions when prescribing this treatment. MEDICALETTES DEAR DR. STEINCROHN: An old track fan an grade school buddy of mine from Dubuque sent me your column on exercise. I have not read your book, but surely you have got to be kidding. You might be interested in some simple arithmetic. The normal heart beats at 72 per minute. This produces 4,320 beats per hour and 103,680 per 24-hour day, omitting con- By Dr. Peter ]. Steincrohn sideration for the decrease while sleeping. It is not difficult for a two- mile-a-day jogger to lower his heartbeat rate to fiO per minute. (Mine is 5fi). This produces 3,600 per hour and 86,400 per day. Now It takes about 16 minutes to jog two miles. So subtract 960 beats at the jogger's normal rate and substitute, for the 16 minutes, 1,920 beats, figured at 120 beats per minute. This increases the jogger's daily heartbeats to 87,360. Subtract 87,360 (jogger) from 103,680 (sitter), and the jogger's heartbank deposit ends up the day 16,320 beats richer than the sitter. — Mr. B. COMMENT: I am happy to' present your side of it. But in fairness, read my book to understand why I prefer to save my heartbeats by napping rather than by jogging.

Our grandson, 1, likes to climb up on the raised hearth but is always falling. I am terrified he will hit his head and injure himself. T have no success in finding anything to cover the shani rough edges. Cushions cover part of the hearth but we use this fireplace and cannot put cushions in front of the fireplace and cannot put cushions in front of the fireplace opening. I would be most grateful if someone could give me a solution to this problem — T. S. H. DEAR POLLY - Dodie could restylc her dresses if steam pressing does not remove the crease left when they are lengthened. A fancy trim could be sewn over the crease and around the sleeves and collar to match and make it seem more a planned part of the dress. To add more length, a wider trim could be added to the bottom or she could cut through the crease and then set a band of trim between the two pieces. This also works well for little girls' pants and dresses. —GITTA DEAR POLLY — Recently I wanted to send some breakable family heirlooms from California to Florida but was concerned about their safety. I secured a box just, a bit larger than the items and then lined the box with cellulose sponges and stuffed any small spaces with crushed tissue paper. The secret, of good packing is to never leave even an inch of space so the contents can shield. I anxiously waited for word from Florida- and heard that the package went through without a single chip. Now I dare to send other breakable things. — MILLEE DKAR POLLY - Those white plastic clips that hold new blouses, slacks and other new clothing come in very handy for holding a hem in place while sewing. This eliminates pin marks which sometimes do not press out. Often the stores will even give you some of these clips. — LORRAINE How old is your makeup?

HEA to meet in Brighton The Early Birds Unit of the Home Extension Association will meet Wednesday, Jan. 13, in the home of Mi's. Frank Rothe in Brighton. The meeting, which begins at 1:30 p.m., will feature a lesson given by the group's home adviser on "Decorating With A Flair." By MARY SUE MILLER If you are halfway between the teens and a facelift, it is time to give your makeup super-critical inspection. You may thnik you worked out the perfect makeup of a few years back. And that's that. But is it? Nothing in the beauty world is constant but changes ... changes for the better. Take eye cosmetics as an example. Not long ago a young grandmother was heard to say, "After any woman reaches that certain age, she should never wear false eyelashes. She'd look ridiculous." Maybe that would' have been true at one time, but not since the introduction of modified falsies. If your own lashes are faded or skimpy, wearing modifications can bring your face into younger focus. A film of amber or gray eyeshadow clears and brightens the eyes. Calls attention away from the laugh lines, too. For blanking out those aging undereye shadows, the pew cosmetic is an under-cover eye foundation —a cream cake that both moisturizes the delicate area and screens out the dark patches with a gentle kind of dazzle. Then there's a loose powder — soft and glowy as cornsilk. Perhaps you have not thought of using it for years. Certainly not as an eye cosmetic. Well, at (he finish of a makeup, "fingerpaint" a tiny bit of loose powder on the undereye circles; then onto your entire face and dust off the excess. Put it all together and you dust off ten years. Very subtly! THE EYES OF YOUTH You are not lost to youthful beauty because of dark circles, pufflness, or wrinkles around the eyes.. These problems can be brought under control by proper sldn care, cosmetic applications, health habits and facial ex- presslons. Methods are detailed in my leaflet, The Eyes of Youth. To obtain your copy, write Mary Sue Miller in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph, enclosing IS tceots in coin and a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope.
