By ttOSfc MARIE ftWtS VIENNA (AP)—An Austrian man who gets a girl Into (rouble and Ihon leaves her In the lurch will face a prison term of up to six months under a new penal code. This is one of the most important provisions of the code for the protection of women. The new code drafted by an Austrian Justice Ministry Commission, is a modernization of Austria's present penal code, which still contains clauses adopted at the time of Empress Maria Theresa 200 years ago. Old Code No Itelp Under the new regulations, a man must not expose a woman, bearing his Illegitimate child, to need and distress. He is obliged to give her "all necessary financial and moral help" during the lime of pregnancy. If he fails to do that, and the woman dies as the result of his neglecting her, he even faces a jail lerm of up to three years. Tho old code offered little help for unmarried mothers. A man only had to pay for Ihe confinement and for the maintenance of the mother for three months after the birth. He had to provide for the baby, though. Public Opinion Changing Thn thought guiding the jus- tier ministry experts working out Ihe now code was that the most difficult period for an unmarried mother was the time before flic birth of the child, says Dr. Paul Hausner, a leading justice ministry official. Public opinion today is regarded as less narrow-minded than it used to be about illegitimate children, but there are still parents who considered unmarried pregnancy a disgrace and cast off their daughters. The girl may also lose her job. Therefore she needs the help of the man who is responsible for her condition. Additional punishment is in store for him if the girl commits suicide or has an abortion carried out. Laws Klsewhen- Influential Similar laws have been in effect in several other European countries, Hausner says. Although there have rarely been, if ever, court proceedings for violations of these laws, they are believed to influence the behavior of the man. Rather (hail face punishment, they are giving all necessary help. Thus, the commission hoped not only to help unmarried mothers, but also to reduce the rate of abortions and suicides. Born to: Here's How Repairs May Not Be Worth Trouble By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfentnres Writer To repair or not to repair a piece of furniture is a dilem- na faced by many people. Is t worth the effort, they want to know. And how do you judge whether it is worth the time and trouble before you invest? If the object is a loved piece of furniture such as an old favorite rocking chair, family icirloom or one that recalls lappy memories and associations, the expense and effort should be well worth it. But one shouldn't put. $300 worth of labor into something bought for $20, just to prove he's got a bargain, unless the piece when finished is worth $320 to him. Value your own lime when appraising the worth of an item to be repaired. A rare "find" is another matter. It could be that you would work for a year and put in hundreds of hours of spare time to repair a beautiful piece of furniture, matching veneers or inlay or applying authentic decorative design meticulously in a labor of love. This is an object you can. exhibit with personal pride at the finish. Sell Mistakes The most careful buyer makes an occasional impulsive purchase that he must judge eventually as having been foolhardy. Me should then settle for being out of pocket, re- selling the. article at the earliest opportunity even at a loss, if owning it causes him mental anguish. A case in point is that of a young couple in a tiny house who found a good-size Direc- toire secretary, that must have been a gem in other days. The inlay that is intact is lovely, but much of it is missing, along with so many other pieces— drawer fronts, hardware, rails —that it would be an enormous undertaking for an amateur cabinet worker. The desk section is fairly well intact with its narrow drawers, but sides and back of the piece are badly discoloi'ed and slightly warped, and because of the inlay requires tremendous work. He Was Licked , The husband r realized he was. licked when he took a good long look at it (which he should have done before buying it). His wife wants to make the best of it, putting it in the bedroom with whatever repairs they can make themselves mak-' ing it useable. The husband realistically refused. But now the piece is in their basement where it will no doubt deteriorate; It should be sold even #t a loss to someone who has the time and experience to make the repairs. Anytime one buys an old piece of furniture with the idea of repairing it, he should be fairly well aware of how miss- ing essential pieces may be located and have some basic knowledge of how to put the missing parts together. An old piece can be a good purchase, providing one has the time, money and materials to make repairs. It is frustrating when one doesn't. Figure Cost Some people forget to figure the cost of materials when estimating expenditures necessary in making repairs. Warped pieces may require clamps. Decoration can be a costly item if gold leaf or many colors must be used. Authentic reproductions of hardware can bring the cost of a goodsize At V of I Doctors Study Pituitary A method of determining if undersized children have a pituitary growth insufficiency is being studied at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago, • BACK-TO-SCHOOL SPECIAL!

D. Searle & Company, Dr. I. Pat Bronstein, Dr. Louis R. Sibal, and Dr. Nerissa P. Singh are using hormones from the 1 human pituitary gland*— located at the base of the brain — to determine if an undersized child has a pituitary growth problem. Specific tests for pituitary rowth insufficiency are not ;enerally 'available. This test Involves injecting extracts.of human pituitary in a rabbit to produce antibodies in the animal. "We then compare the antibodies with blood serum from undersized chil- ," Dr. Bronstein explained. "A discrepancy indicates a pituitary problem in the child." Pituitary growth failure, a primary cause for undersize, is a problem which has been hard to diagnose accurately. Once diagnosed, however, treatment is possible. Such treatment includes injection of human. pituitary growth hormones. However, it is difficult to obtain pituitary hormones and the hope is to be able either to modify animal pituitary hormones or create synthetic hormones for injection. Dr. Bronstein pointed out that there are four basic causes for linear inadequacy or underside: 1—Most common is genetic, familial, or inherited undersize. Delayed puberty is an example. 2—A person can be short because of a bone abnormality, 3—Chronic illness can result in undersize. 4—Shortness can be caused by glandular diseases such as thyroid or pituitary inefficiency, "However, improper thyroid function is fuirly easy to recognize through standard testing. It is our hope that the laboratory test we are working on for pituitary growth disfunction svill prove to be equally live." Mr. and Mrs. Robert L.

It is worthwhile if you have a treasure when finished, but often it would have been cheaper to buy a good piece in the beginning. One man, who bought a severely damaged Boston rocker for $15, could have got one in good condition at the same sale for $27. But the enjoyment he had in refinishing the piece was worth the trouble. Attitude is something that must be taken into consideration when making a decision too, and that can be evaluated only by the interested party. Never buy anything that needs to be repaired if you feel wishy- washy about doing it.
