Hot Weather Diets AMA Gives Health and Safety Tips From American Medical Assn. Hot weather imposes no special dietary requirements for healthy, infants and children, except for increased water intake. Says the American Medical Association's Council on Foods and Nutrition: "If infants and children eating well-balanced diets do not tolerate ordinary heat stress, they should be investigated for illness rather than changing their diets. Poor appetites and faulty eating habits may result from the uncontrolled use of cold drinks with high calorie content, or from failure to take enough outdoor exercise, or from over-indulgence in between-meal snacks. It is unwise for adults to 'condition' children to dislike hot weather or to foist summertime food fads on them. When the summer sun bears down and the weather is hot, inside and out, parents often give thought to changing the family dietary pattern. Should salt be added? Should certain "heavy" foods be prohibited? Does baby need a change in his formula? The requirement for protein seems to be unchanged or possibly even increased in hot weather. If table salt is used in ordinary amounts in cooking, and is readily available at meal times, extra salt should not be needed except in very active people. The children need more liquids in the summer to offset loss through perspiration, but this need likely will be met by the youngsters themselves. They'll get thirsty. Mother's problem is to see to it that they quench their thirst most often with plain water, and not overdo high caloried drinks. To make certain infants get enough liquid, offer them a few ounces of water regularly between feedings. Small children usually do not mind hot weather unless they are conditioned by their elders to dislike it. Cool, but not freezing cold, drinks are best, and water is the best of all. A short "cooling off" and quiet period before meals may help the appetite on a hot day. In fact, all of the usual measures and guides for developnig good eating habits should be continued, irrespective of the weather. Here From Florida Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Johnson of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., are visiting this week with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Johnson of 3410 Fullerton Ave. The Milfords Mr. and Mrs. Charles D.

Sun, heat, humidity and perspiration conspire to all manner of derangements—dryness, discoloration, unmanageability, and susceptibility to soil. It therefore behooves a lovely to take up the cudgels in defense of her locks. Otherwise they can become a mass of straw by fall and then take months to recondition. To put up a powerful fight, use these tactics: —Avoid exposing tinted, white or already dry hair to the sun; cover up with a hat or handkerchief. But not even the sturdiest head is impervious to sun- burning and should be protected against long exposures. —Always wear a cap when swimming. After dips in pool or surf, immediately rinse away any salt or chlorinated water that may have seeped under your cap. —Shampoo dry or nomal hair once weekly; suds oily hair at least twice a week. Heads that perspire excessively should be washed every third day with a deodorant shampoo. Such products are now formulated with lanolin in nongreasy form, and so protect against mustiness and dryness. —To encourage gloss and manageability, brush night and morning. Surface dry hair with a moisturized dressing before brushing. If you use hair spray, be sure it contains a moisture guard. And when you need a quick freshening, spray a clean hair brush with light cologne and arrange your locks with it. RULE YOUR WAVES What's your hair problem? You'll find a way to overcome it in my 16-page booklet, RULE YOUR WAVES. Advice includes: beauty treatments, for oily, dry, and normal hair; ways to manage unruly locks; how to add color and highlights; tips on cutting, permanents and styling; grooming tricks.

DEAR ANN: In the last three days I have received five copies of one of your columns—the one about the woman who had a habit of punching people on the •m or socking I them in the ribs ; to emphasize n ^point. One clipping was mailed * f r o m another ''city. There is no •-, > ; question but that ^i'l'm guilty of the „_ >", habit. What Ann Landers, puzzles me, however, is how a person can have such a habit and not know it. I recall reading that column and I laughed. It never occurred to me that I could be the woman. From now on I'm going to make a real effort to keep my hands to myself. I am deeply grateful to my friends who went to the trouble of mailing me the clippings. I only wish someone had told me years ago. It makes me sad to think I have been abusing my friends for heaven knows how long. Thank you for everything, Ann. -REFORMED PUGILIST DEAR REFORMED: Your letter supports my contention that this habit is indeed an unconscious one. Some readers wrote to say I was off base—that no person could sock and punch and not know he was doing it. I'm happy you wrote. * * * * DEAR ANN: You are a fine human relations columnist but a bum attorney. You told "Cons c ien c e"—the woman whose husband filed a bankruptcy petition—that since she felt guilty about "sticking all those people" (many were personal friends) she should indeed go back to work and pay them. You further recommended that she write or phone and advise them of her good intentions. You said she'd probably "feel/ better immediately." The advice is beautiful from a human relations point of view, but legally such a move would be disastrous. The woman would have her husband right back in hock to all his creditors. The only safe way for a person to repay a debt which has been cancelled under a bankruptcy filing is to make no promises whatever, but to quietly save the amount owed one creditor, pay in full, and then go on to the next creditor—and the next—and so on. Please give the word to the lady at once, and stop practicing law without a license, Doll. —JUDGE O.F.D. DEAR JUDGE: Twenty swats for me with a rolled up writ of replevin. Dozens of attorneys and a few judges wrote to inform me that I had slopped over into their territory. I promise not to try to write an advice column. * * * * DEAR ANN: My husband has a 22-year-old daughter by a former marriage. Ellen was raised by her mother and she's always been a problem. She has been in trouble with truant officers and teachers. Finally she was expelled from school and had to graduate through the mail. My husband saw very little of Ellen until three months ago. Suddenly they have taken quite an interest in each other. The reason—she is being married this fall and wants a nice, beautiful, expensive wedding. My husband has less than $100 in the bank, yet he wants to give her a wedding which will cost about $1,000. He says he'll borrow the balance. I don't mind borrowing in case of necessity but this is a luxury and I am against it. What is your advice? —PIGEON-TOED DEAR PIGEON: Your husband is probably feeling guilty about neglecting Ellen all these years and this is his way of making it up to her. Let him do as he wishes about his daughter's wedding. It may be a "luxury" to you—but to him it is a necessity. Confidential to MADE MY OWN BED: Stop moaning, Sister. Sometimes a hard bed is better for the spine than a soft one. Adjust to it. Others have —and you can, too.

The Grower's Art Get Acquainted With Day Lilies By FRED CLAUSEN Telegraph Garden Columnist If you are looking for a flower that will give you years of pleasure with very little trouble, try hybrid day lilies. Few, if any, flowers are so dependable and so trouble- free. They can now be had in all shades of yellow, red and pink. If you stay away from the ones that have been introduced in the last few years, they are rather inexpensive, considering they soon grow into good-sized clumps. With a collection of a dozen or so plants you can have flowers for two or three months, -| during June, July and August when we have hot weather that will wilt most anything but day lilies. A friend of mine kept count of the flowers each day on two plants four years old, well cared for. Each plant had about 600 individual flowers in a six-week period, (each flower lasts but one day.) They rival the finest of lilies. Some are night bloomers — the flowers stay open 'til 10-11 o'clock at night. If you use your garden for evening parties, you should have some of these, as most of the others close about 8 o'clock in the evening. As for care, they will do without but respond to a feeding of plant food in late winter and an occasional watering in dry weather. If you have a wish for an interesting climbing flower, try a few of the gorgeous clematis available in many colors. The hybrids will bloom for several month's with flowers up to 5- 6- inches in diameter. They require a little loving care, a little time, but repay you for your trouble with their long-lasting flowers which, by the way, make fine table decorations which last for days. Now is the time to pinch your mums, and pinch 'them again in another month. We all had considerable damage done to our gardens this past week, but cheer up, you ought to see the gardens we will have next year. You can still sew seed of zinnia for fall blooms. Check your evergreens for bagworms now — and hope you don't find any. It is still time to sow many vegetables for a fall crop. Carrots sown now will not have worms in them. Chinese cabbage sown by mid-July where they are to grow and thinned to 15-17 inches apart make good heads by fall. They do not stand transplanting. For more enjoyment of garden parties, use one of the several sprays or dusts containing chlordane. They check flies, mosquitoes, chiggers and ants for quite a while after application. Please mail your questions on gardening to Fred Clausen, in care of the Telegraph, and he will answer them in his column. Please do not telephone his home. The Family FRED Says Pediatrician Parents Pushing Off Russia Child-Rearing Job Cosmetologists See Stylists 9 Program One hundred and fifty area licensed cosmetologists attended an educational program on hair fashions Tuesday evening in Rusty's Restaurant in Ed- wardsvllle. The event was sponsored by the hair -fashion committee members of Madison County Hairdressers' and Cosmetologists' Association. Mrs. Robert Bohart welcomed the guests. Mrs. Harry Lackey, mistress of ceremonies, moved among the guests with a roving microphone, asking hair styling demonstrators to describe their work.

Those appearing were Mrs. Francis Giles, Mrs. Thomas Bailey, Mrs. Kay Routon, Mrs. Carl Davis, Mrs. Floyd Carroll, Mrs. John Shea, Mrs. Karl Fiedler, Miss Doris Maguire and Mrs. Lackey. All are permanent members of the hair fashion committee. Following addresses by Mrs. Ebert Becker and Carl Paoli of Belleville on "What Does Your Association Mean to You?"

BPWC Hears Talk on By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer WILTON, Conn. #—Parents today are too prone to give up their rights and duties to the school, the clergy, physicians and just about anybody who will take over. That's the opinion of a Connecticut pediatrician who's deeply concerned about today's youngsters. Dr. Walter X. Lehmann, of Wilton, says especially tragic is the fact that parents are leaving the sex education of their children to others, and it is time they took back their rights for their own good. He elaborates: "They must communicate the proper attitudes concerning sex to their children from an early age. It can't be done overnight. Young people must be taught that sex is a God-created good thing, know it is normal to have desires, and that they are only complete individuals when they learn to control these desires. Then they can survive more easily without the extra emotional strain that problems connected with sex produce." Need to Know Loved Dr. Lehmann, a pediatrician for 12 years, is one of many doctors now working earnestly in Fairfield County in view of a situation which he thinks is worsening. He says this includes excessive teen-age drinking, sex experimentation, failure to function properly in school, strained relations at home, steady dating, high school drop-out and early marriages. "Every child needs to know that his parents love him unquestioningly, all of the time, for himself alone, just the way he is, even though they may disagree with many of their actions. And this love can't be sloughed off with gifts or a charge account. "Fancy cars, clothes, big al- lowances do not imply true love on the parents' part, and children know it. Love implies discipline and limits, and when parents are too permissive, the child interprets it as failure on the parents part to love them," he explains. Parents must continually help the child to become a distinct individual apart from themselves, gradually growing .more independent, Dr. Lehmann points out. They must have a set of moral standards, a faith to live by. ' "Young people must grow emotionally and spiritually as well as intellectually and physically. When youngsters get back on their feet I always ask them what most of all helped them back. Two, constant facts emerge: They have found a responsible adult that they trust, admire and want to be like, and have attained a good relationship with God," he says. Parents should be able to supply both these needs, he says, but they are afraid to trust their own good judgment. "They are beset on all sides by conflicting information. They read too many articles by so- called authorities, and hence are afraid to rely on their own common sense." • ' . ' Modern parents are too eager to grow socially, and sweep their children into an unreal atmosphere without instilling in them - basic attitudes of honesty, loyalty, generosity, truth and self control, he says. "Children from 5 to 13 just want to be children," Dr. Lehmann points .out. "They'd rather play with members of their own sex in the backyard than go to dancing schools, and have parlor parties than cavort at the country club which is now the vogue." Jean Gilborne, librarian in the public schools of Geneseo, 111., gave a slide commentary on her recent trip to Russia before members of the Alton Business and Professional Women's Club Tuesday following dinner in Hotel Stratford. A style show set for Sept. 28, was discussed. Miss Gilborne stated that in this country we place too much emphasis on material things, and that our real advantage is our freedom. The speaker went to Russia last year with a church group traveling in the interest of peace. She is a member of the Geneseo BPWC. Mrs. George Fischer of Little Theater Inc., told plans for the style show, to be sponsored jointly by the theater group and BPWC, with Charlotte Peters of St. Louis as mistress of ceremonies. The collect was given by Mrs. William Hine, and group singing was led by Thelma Benson. The next BPWC dinner meeting will be in the same hotel at 6:30 p.m. on July 16.
