Warning to Cooper-droopers MRS. HEPTING ting- Hep Guebert vows said DEAR ANN: I would appreciate the opportunity to reply to the Texas M.D. who made the statement that "scientific evidence actually favors no bra." As a gynecologist I have seen and read of many cases of women who never wore bras. Do you know what they look like. Their breasts are flat. Very flat. The Cooper's ligament, unassisted, is not able to support the weight of the average breast. This condition is called "Cooper's Droop." Ann, please tell your women readers that going without a bra may give them a feeling of liberation but it will result in sagging breasts. Almost everyone has seen films of tribal African women which are conclusive evidence. The females have never worn bras and they all have Cooper's Droop. I hope you will print my letter so your readers will know that the El Paso physician does not have the support of all members of the medical profession.

I could hardly wait to try it again. That second trip was the granddaddy of all bummers. Man was I spaced out! I begged my pals to take me to a hospital but they said I'd get asked a lot of questions and everybody would be in trouble. I went into a rage, crying and screaming and breaking up furniture. One sweet kid approached me to straighten my head out. I hit her full in the mouth. That convinced them to call my parents. I just couldn't face mom and pop. So I tried to kill myself by slashing my throat with a broken bottle. Crazy? You'd better believe it. I was on acid, librium, aspirin, antibiotics, pot and booze.

Paying your child for good grades If your child is ready for school, should you give him an opportunity to earn money by paying him for good grades? It is not always wise. One of a child's responsibilities is doing well in school without expecting a money reward. Paying for good grades makes them an end in themselves. A child can easily become so involved in making money that he forgets his real purpose is to become educated. In addition, the pressure created by the emphasis on money may become so great that your child may resort to bartering or cheating. Additional problems may arise when there are several children in the family. Because all may not be equally capable, paying for grades may create friction between the children. You may be asking for trouble if your child's total income depends on grades. School phobia Many young children suffer from "school phobia." ; Crying, refusal to take part in classwork, vomiting, running a fever are all symptoms of the ailment. School phobia can be traced to the home in which a child's desire to be an individual is squelched. If your child is never allowed out of your sight, has few opportunities to associate with other children; and is rarely left alone or wth other people, he will find it diffcult to accept a situation without you. As a result, school can become a frightening experience. School phobia is neither uncommon nor incurable. But you can help prevent it by letting your child associate with others in his pre-school years. Participant in Illinois Youth Music Session Miss Peggy Veil of Willowood Lane, Godfrey, was among instrumentalists and vocalists in music groups included in the third and final two-week session of Illinois Summer Youth Music for 1972. The sessions were held at the University of Illinois, urbana, and were operated by the Extension in Music of the Division of University Extension, with cooperation from the School of Music and university bands. With participants being selected on the basis of taped auditions, Miss Veit played first chiar oboe with the junior concert orchestra. fl Reading to your child The most natural, healthful way to interest your child in hooks is to read to him. In attempting to capture a chad's attention and "teach" him to read, parents sometimes force the use of devices that have the opposite effect. For instance, aids such as flash cards and alphabet blocks may help develop some skills. But by forcing them upon children, you may be developing a hostile resistance to books. Read to your child as soon as he is old enough to sit still and listen. He may not even be old enough to understand all the words, but he win still enjoy being with you, hearing the sound of your voice and watching your facial expressions. Sitting so your child can see the pages enables him to correlate the written and spoken words. Books with pictures help him relate to the story. And as he continues to develop, he will be able to "read" with you. Reading to your child should not stop when he begins kindergarten. Instead, you should continue reading to him wilh expression. Reading with expression not only makes the story more interesting but aJso helps a chi'.d learn the meaning of punctuation marks.

Core tips for outdoor furniture Although outdoor furniture is built to take hard wear and exposure to hot sun and heavy rains, a fcw minutes of extra care can protect its appearance and durability. Wash aluminum furniture occasionally with soap and water. If you want to brighten the finish, rub the metal with a wax-base cleaner or fine steel wool. After cleaning, apply a light cover of auto wax for weather protection. A coat of paint will protect steel and iron from rusting. But if your furniture already has rust spots, clean them with steel wool, treat with a metal primer am) paint with outdoor enamel. During summer, wash redwood furniture occasionally with soap and water. At the end of the summer season give it a co.it of penetrating sealer. Don't use varnish or shellac on it. Cover redwood, if left outdoors for the winter. Rattan needs routine dusting. Once a year wash it with a mild soap and water solution, then polish with a liquid wax. Furniture cushions and pa .1s may be air-tight and waterproof, but dampness still seeps through the seams. All cushions will wear longer if protected from rain, so cover them vvilb a pjastic or rubber cover at night or during tough weather. Canvas and duck fabrics ca« be scrubbed with detergent, rinsed and dried in the sun.
