LAMB - Could you please discuss temperature and explain if it is normal for a child almost 10 to have a regular temperature ranging from 93.2 to degrees? I first discovered this last Thanksgiving and it didn't follow an illness. She has been seen by the doctor twice and there was no sign of illness. All of her lalxiralory studies were normal. She looks well and has a good appetite, but I'm worried about what this means. My doctor seems ucocerned. If you say the above average temperature is nothing to worry about, I'll ignore it. Otherwise, should 1 take her to another doctor or what' 1 DEAIt READER - You did the right thing in taking your daughter to the doctor for a good medical examination. Since she turned out to be perfectly normal by examination 1 think you could .ndced forget the problem. Body temperature varies a lot in different people. The oral temperature ranges from degrees F. to 100.0 degrees F. Not only that, some people have a normal daily variation in body temperature of as much as 2.0 degrees F. or 3.0 degrees F. Usually the body temperature is lowest between 3 and 5 in the morning and it. is highest in the late afternoon or early evcrning. It is particularly labile in infants and it's more labile in children than it is in adults. Many normal adults have an afternoon or early evenng temperature of 99.0 degrees F. or more. Body temperature can be influenced by a good many factors. Strenuous exercise can temporarily elevate the temeprature several degrees. Even eating hot, spicy foods can elevate the temperature in some people. The temperature regulating center for the brain is located in the area called the hypothalamus, which is a small structure underneath the brain behind the eyes. It's literally the switchboard for human emotions. Therefore it's not too surprising that emotional reactions can influence body temperature. A11 things By »r. Lawrence E. Lamh considered, in the face of a normal medical examination, I wou.d say that your doctor i.s probably wise in ignoring it and think you should do the same. I receive many letters from women who have had their tubse tied and later regretted it. Attempts have been made for several years to reunite several tubes or undo female sterility operations. These have met with varied success. For readers who are concerned with the problem, however, they might be in- Crested to know that Dr. Celso-Hamon Garcia at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia has developed a micro surgery technique. The surgery is done with the aid of a microscope and Dr. Garcia has been able to obtain successful rejoining of open tubes in 50 per cent of his cases. Of his first 14 patients, three have been pregnant and one of them has had two normal pregnancies. There are many problems associated with the reconstructive surgery but at least there's hope for those who are sony about the whole thing.

DEAR ANN: I have a friend who bragged to me that she took a trip to the Coast with $600 worth of luggage that didn't cost her a dime. When I asked her how she did it she said, "I picked out the best luggage I could find, charged it, and returned it when I got home. I just told the store manager it was poorly designed, too heavy, and I didn't like it." I was shocked that a person could do such a thing. She told me she does the same with hats, purses, and she even "borrowed" a lamp for a party once. Why do storekeepers allow such deceit? Are they stupid? — J. L. J. DEAR J.: No racket lasts forever. Petty crooks are eventually found out and their reputations are mud. They are the stupid ones. DEAR ANN: How many times has someone asked, "Do you mind if I smoke''" and even though you'd rather not have smoke blown in your face you say, "That's all right, go ahead." New evidence should "be called to the attention of the reading public, Ann, and here it is. Recent experiments at Texas A & M University indicate that 30 minutes in a smoke-filled room significantly increases (he non-smoker's heart rate, blood pressure and the amount of carbon monoxide in his blood. A team of researchers at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center reported that smoke drifting from the burning ends of cigarets, pipes and cigars contains cadmium which could definitely be harmful when inhaled by onlookers. Another research team at Wayne State University in Detroit found that acute illnesses, mostly respiratory, were twice as prevalent among young children whose parents smoked at home than among children whose parents did not. Please, Ann, urge your readers to say, when asked, "Do you mind if I smoke?" — YES, I do mind. It's bad for my health."—CHARLES KIESEWETTER, executive Cooking cues To stretch a package of frozen okra, after cooking, add canned whole-kernel corn and reheat. director T.B. and health society, Wayne-Oakland counties. DEAR C.K.: Thank you for writing. For those who are too timid to say, "Yes, I do mind," I suggest that you clip this column and have copies made. When asked the question simply hand it over. That should clear a sinus or two. DEAR ANN: I've been reading your column every day for four years hoping to see my problem from someone else. So far it has not appeared and I am getting desperate. I can't sing tfly name for obvious reasons. My dad is a prominent man in town. When I wa? 16 I had an illegitimate child. I gave him up for adoption on To observe 2 5 th wedding anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Frank V. Kalvin of 6400 Sunset Drive, Godfrey, will celebrate their silver wedding anniversary with a dinner at the Glade's in Carlinville to be given by Mrs. Kalvin's brother and sister-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Schlomann of Benld.

What can you do about it? The only permanent help for hair so damaged is cutting oS the damaged sections as soon as the hair is long enough to permit restyling. Meantime, you can use a dry-hair conditioner afier each shampoo to add luster and manageability to your hair. In addition, you might : pply a gel or pomade between shampoos to relieve excessive dryness and add luster. Because dry hair breaks easily, brush only as much as necessary to keep the hair neat, using a natural bristle brush.
