COLEMAN, M.D. Plan Reduces Hospital Costs Private hospital care is a luxury that few people can afford. The cost of hospitalization has so sky-rocketed in recent years that the U. S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare has begun an intensive study to find ways of reducing the cost of running a hospital. A program called "Progressive Patient Care" has been designed by the Department in an effort to reduce the cost of hospitalization without sacrificing any of the medical needs of the patient. New Concept The new concept revolves ar o u n d custom-made medical, surgical and nursing facilities that will fulfill the individual requirements of each patient. This is based on the theory that not all patients need the same continuing intensive care during their entire stay at the hospital. According to the new plan, patients would be graduated from one group to another as they progress toward recovery. For it is obvious that the aver-, age patient about to be discharged does not need as much of the expensive care and equipment as most patients who are first admitted to the hospital. Five Categories The Progressive Patient Care plan,, already established in a number of hospitals, has five distinct categories. 1) Intensive Care 2) Intermediate Care 3) Self Care 4) Long-Term Care 5) Home Care Intensive Care Intensive care is built around those patients who are critically ill on admission to the hospital. A full complement of nurses and personnel keep the patient under constant surveillance, often with elaborate and costly equipment, until the emergency is over. All facilities are kept at a high level of immediate availability until the patient is out of danger. Intermediate care is meant for patients who need some, but less active, nursing care. Many of these patients are already beginning to help themselves and relieve the nurses and staff of time-consuming vigilance. Self Care Self care includes those who are physically able to care for their own needs and require very little supplementary help from the nursing staff. Special equipment is not needed during this period of convalescence. Long-Term care will be established for patients who need physical and occupational therapy during their periods of physical and emotional rehabilitation. Emphasis will be placed on the psychological adjustment to chronic disability. Recreation facilities and custodial care will replace the need for expensive nursing care and hospital facilities normally reserved for patients with acute illness. Home Care Home care, the last classification of Progressive Patient Care, extends from the hospital to the patient's own home. Visiting nursing services, cooperating with local health agencies, continue to supply the patient's needs outside the hospital. This new concept is a broad sociological advance. Patients will be given the advantage of individualized care during every phase of their recovery, while at the same time benefiting by the reduced cost of their hospitalization.

I plan to make some skirts of bulky wool tweeds. But, I always have lumpy zipper plackets. Is there any way to eliminate this?—MISS B.R. A. On bulky fabrics, it's a good idea to make inside placket facings of a lighter weight fabric. Choose one with the same characteristics as the outer fabric—a lightweight wool the same color as your tweed. To avoid bulk, cut two facing strips of this lightweight fabric 1% inches longer than your placket opening and 1% inches wide. Pin one strip to the right placket opening with right sides together and stitch on the regular seam line (figure 1). Trim your seam allowances to % inch, turn and un- derstitch. Stitch the other strip to the left side in the same manner (figure 2). Then turn your facings back and put on your zipper. You'll have a smooth and flat placket (figure 3). Q. I have a rust stain on a white pique dress. Washing won't remove it. Can you help me?—MISS T.F. A. Stretch the fabric with the stain over a pan of boiling water. Squeeze lemon juice on the stain and let it stand for about four minutes. Then rinse. Or sprinkle salt over the stain and squeeze lemon juice on it. Then dry in the sun. For rust stain on a colored garment, do not try this until you've tested the fabric for fastness. * * * * Q. You advise testing the machine stitch on a swatch of fabric before you sew on the garment. Sometimes when the stitch is perfect on one grain, it's wrong on the other. How can I test this before I goof?— MRS. L.L. A. Take a rectangle of fabric and fold it crosswise so the grain lines match. Then, stitch a triangle through the two thick- nesses. In this way, you'll stitch along one grain, then the other and then on the bias. Before you stitch, mark the right and wrong sides so you can check to see if there is a problem with the top or bobbin stitch. * * * * Q. Please start showing Christmas gifts to make a little earlier this year. They have to be made in spare time and I know that I need at least two months to finish them.—MRS. C.P. A. I will start Christmas gifts within the next few weeks.

If you say her behavior is acceptable I will try to overlook it. Please ? reply in the pa- fV per because I V|know of others I who wonder about sthis person, too. She is forever 'turning over the 3 china to see if it is the genuine • stuff. She examines silver the Ann Landers, same way. I've seen her fingering my table linen and my draperies to determine the quality of fabric. Most people can look at a picture and enjoy it but not her. She has to touch it to see if it's realjy done in oil. I will admit the woman. i& cultured, refined and knowledgeable but this habit of hers .raises my blood pressure. Will you please comment? -PLAIN FOLKS DEAR FOLKS: I do not agree that the woman is cultured and refined. Cultured and refined people do not examine articles for hallmarks nor do they handle fabrics to test the quality' while visiting in the homps of friends. And I don't agree that she is knowledgeable. If the^ woman knew her stuff she wouldn't have to touch and scrutinize everything. She'd know. * * * * DEAR ANN: Our 7-year-old son has been taking odds and ends from the homes of neighbors and friends i Sometimes he takes objects from the nearby novelty store or the drug store. He doesn't need, or even want, many of the items he takes. He just enjoys carrying things off without being caught. When he brings the stolen objects home he proudly presents them to me. I have scolded him repeatedly and explained that it is wrong to steal. I always insist that he take each object back and leave it somewhere on the premises. After he has returned everything he tells me, and I then forgive him. . His father learned of this yesterday. Strangely enough the boy blurted out, "Let's 1 tell daddy our secret." My husband was shocked and then furious. He says something must be done but we don't know what. It was his idea to write to you. Can you help?—TROUBLED HOUSE DEAR TROUBLED: Without meaning to, you have encouraged the boy's . stealing by making a game of it. He doesn't see anything wrong with sneaking things out so long as he is able to sneak them back in. • You must tell him that if he takes anything else he will have to hand it to the owner and confess that he stole it. Go along with him to make sure he does it. If this does not cure him, the boy needs professional help. Youngsters who steal usually have deep-seated emotional problems. * * • • DEAR ANN: Six months ago our office supervisor took up a -collection to buy a gift for a girl who was getting married and leaving the office. The girl said the gift was too bulky to carry home on public transportation but she promised to drive in the following week and pick it up. The gift is still in the office and none of us have received a thank you note. It seems evident that this girl has no intention of picking up the gift and that she cares nothing for it. It's too late to return the gift for a refund. We've asked the supervisor to please do something about the gift but still it sits here. If you have any suggestions we'd like to hear them— since everyone's money is involved.—PUZZLED DEAR PUZZLED: The supervisor should phone the girl and tell her if she doesn't come for the gift within the week it will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Then put it on the block. * * * * Confidential to NO HORSE SENSE: Hundreds of readers have written to say there is a book which can smarten' you up on "horse-talk."

Women complained of being cold, and many wore coats while eating. The room was then trimmed in orange, with orange slipcovers on the chairs. Complaints stopped, and coats were no longer necessary. Ironically the thermometer registered the same comfortable temperature as throughout the period of discomfort. Do good children need praise? Answer* Yes, equally as b a d children. Mary and Lawrence K. Frank point out in "How to Help Your Child in School" that many parents and teachers mistakenly assume that because a child is unusually good in many areas, he needs no reward other than his own success. That's not so, say the Franks. "The good child, the good sport and the good scholar," they wrote, "need praise just as much as the child who is obviously struggling to keep up with him." Can colon affect your disposition? Answer: Yes, for better or for worse, Psychologist T. L. Engle tells of « factory owner who dec- (Q 1883, Kin* Feature*. Synd.. ino.) Is hypnosis a mysterious force? Answer: Apparently not. Psychologists and others who use hypnosis have different ways ol inducing the hypnotic state. Some use flushing lights, monotonous sounds, etc., to induce hypnosis. However, most therapists simply use spoken words, with no mechanics involved, whatever technique is used, the basis of hypnosis depends on narrowing the subject's attention to the point where he will not give attention to any* thing but the hypnotist's voice.
