Aeport IT Effects on Family Life By SCIENCE SERVICE LONDON— Television In Britain brings many families closer together but disrupts others, a British scientist reported. Dr. William A. Belson of the division of research, London School of Economics, said his evidence came from Interviews with 150 London families and a survey of adults from 400 viewing homes In London. He said that in about half of the London homes with TV, the only family room heated In winter Is the TV room. The persons Interviewed Indicated that they were not too selective or discriminating about what they looked at on TV. They said they often watched whatever programs others were already viewing. Dr. Belson reported the following recurrent features of British families' viewing habits: 1. Divided attention. 1. Silence, often reinforced by shushing. 3. Brief talk, usually during commercials. 4. A tendency to hurry through meals if it is time to watch a program. Many meals are eaten in front of the set, and much "snacking" takes place during viewing. 5. The presence of children with adults. 6. Despite elements of discord, TV is an occasion for family gatherings, "some of them compact and cozy." He reported his findings in the current issue of The Advancement of Science, published by the British Association for the Advancement of Science here. The material reported is to be part of'Dr. Belson's forthcoming book, Television and Society. Teeri'Agers Can Be Safe Drivers Teen-agers can be our safest drivers provided parents are interested enough to set a good example. In making this statement, 0. L. Hogsett, University of Illinois safety specialist, explains that safe driving depends on attitudes as much as skills, and attitudes, good or bad, develop early in life. Even a 4- or 5-year-old child can interpret some traffic signs and signals. When he is riding along and his parent speeds or slides through a stop sign, he knows—and remembers. Or when a child hears his parent boast that he "fixed" a ticket or "got by the cop" he thinks of the action in terms of bravery or smartness. To him his parent can do no wrong. In reality, he is developing an attitude of disrespect for the Rules of the Road. Driver training courses are important, says Hogsett, but they are not a substitute for parental responsibility. If a child is to develop good attitudes, training for safe driving must start long before he is old enough to enroll in such a course. It should be easy for a parent to discuss simple, safe driving with the 4- or 5-year- old as they ride along. Such things as slowing down on a curve, signaling for a turn and allowing a safe distance between cars should make meaningful conversation. On an extended trip when the entire family is along, recognizing signs and signals and learning new traffic regulations can be an exciting game. Kerketneyers Here Mr. and Mrs. Edward Kerkemeyer of Dover, Del., are visiting in the home of her parents. Mr. and Mrs. Ray Leady at 2137 Marquette Dr. The couple plans to stay until about July 15. Mr. Kerke- nieyer is a former Edwardsville resident. Cooking Cue* Marinate cubes of leftover roast or plain cooked meat and such vegetables as green lima beans, carrots, wax and snap beans, using French dressing. Serve on crisp greens as a luncheon salad. If the meat is on the sparse side, add hard- cooked eggs as a garnish. If you want that 'cooked salad dressing to be unusually smooth and scrumptious, make it with cream instead of milk Reality Tips \ Slumping isn't relaxing—it's ! tatit'umg.

Ann Landers Her Guests Have Interest In Her Medicine Cabinet Born to: DEAR ANN: Why • in the world would guests who come to spend a few hours in a home be interested in what's in the medicine cabinet? Several weeks ago I entertained some friends and one of the women apologized for breaking a jar of cold cream which was in the cabinet. She said "I just opened the cabinet door and it fell out." When I told Ann Landers, my husband I could not understand why she opened the cabinet door he said, "People always do this and I will prove it to you." He rigged a little scotch tape device on the cabinet door and showed me how to retape it after it had been detached. Yesterday I had 12 women in for bridge. I checked the tape after each of eight women had been in the bathroom. To my horror 1 discovered the tape had been broken seven times! Can you tell me why tliis interest in other people's medicine cabinets? DUMB-FOUNDED DEAR DUMB-FOUNDED: Humans are a complicated, unpredictable mixture of mysterious motivations. Why do they want the front of the bus, the back of the church and the middle of the road? There are many reasons for opening a medicine cabinet in the home of a hostess. Most of them come under the heading of plain nosiness. One woman in 25 could be looking for an aspirin. The other 24 are checking to see if it's orderly, or if the family takes a lot of medicine and if so, •what kind. Don't ask me why it should matter, it apparently does. DEAR ANN: I have a girl friend who has a lot bigger allowance than mine (like four times as much). We are both 14 years old. At the end of the week I'm broke so she insists on buying the tickets to the movie and then she treats me to a soda or hamburgers. She also pays the bus fare for both of us. I don't want this charity drive to end our friendship because we get along great together. I'm uneasy about her spending money on me because I have no way of paying her back. Thank you. TOBY P.S. I am a girl. DEAR TOBY: I'm happy you added that P. S. I had you figured for a boy. Cut out the domestic aid program and tell your friend you appreciate her generosity but you can no longer accept it. Plenty of interesting places are free. Let her know she doesn't have to buy your company. * * » « DEAR ANN: I married a, man whose wife died six years ago. I think the world of him -and we have been very happy together, except for one thing. His daughter and her family will not come to visit us because this is the same house where she grew up and her mother died. We must call on them at their homes since they refuse to set foot in this house. I am siok at heart over this and my husband knows it. He says to ignore it but I can't. I'm sure he is hurt as I am, but he is a strong person and does not show it. What can I do? N.A. DEAR N.A.: You can continue to punish yourself about something which is not your fault and which you cannot control or change. Or you can be mature and accept the situation and continue to visit them. The third alternative is to move into another house—although it hardly seems worth the trouble. * # * * To learn the booby-traps of teen-age drinking, write for Ann Landers' booklet, "Teenage Drinking," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a large, self-addressed, stamped envelope.

Fashion Facts The question of white shoes or not depends largely on the custom followed" in your town. Some places bypass white in favor of black patent. Others take gladly to white. If you stick with the local custom, you won't feel out of place. One way to beat the summer heat is to buy some lightweight, mesh girdles. Another way is to buy a combination garter-belt and panty girdle which offers some, but not much support. For the rest of the summer, put your nylon nightgowns away and equip yourself with some drip-dry cotton gowns. They're cooler and these days they come all prettied up with lace and ribbon. Crowding your clothes in a closet is as hard on them as hanging them .away without airing. Allow plenty of air and space and make sure that your hangers are neither bent not rusty.
