Doctors Fight to Restore 'GocTs 8 Handiwork' on Mutilated Girl, 12 SALT LAKE CITY 'AF 1 Tars, eyelids, eyebrows anr) scalp -tripped away, a 12-year-old farm j-irl depends for her future on a fipht by doctors to restore. as they <-pp it. the handiwork of (!od Christine Hayes of Blackfoot. Idaho, was mutilated when a potato rombinp seized hpr swinging pony tail during harvest work Monday. A Blackfoot doctor kept her alive and. after telephoned in- ftri'Ctions from Latter-Day Saints Hospital here. preserved the ripped-off skin in a gallon of salt solution. Christine and her scalp were flown to the hospital. In a fi4- Tiour operation, the ears, upper 1 pud lower right eyelids and eyebrows w-erp removed from the 1 scalp and attached to her abdomen. Doctors hope the rich abdominal blood will nourish them until !they can be grafted back in place. j In addition, skin from the abdomen was grafted to her face and neck during the long opera: tion. I The combine stripped Chrisi tine's head to the bone. Before the i scalp can be restored, hospital 'officials said, the plastic surgeon will have to peel away a thin i section of skull so that the skin will have a surface to which it can adhere. The names of neither the Black- foot doctor nor the Salt Lake surgeon were disclosed. Hospital administrator Clarence E. Wonnacott, releasing details of the operation, said: "The surgeon took a gamble that it might, pos- ribly work. In the total reconstruction of the girl's face, it could be a marvelous accomplishment because no one can make an ear like God." Tlm«* Herald. C*rr»M, la.

By JERRY ,BENNETT NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - <NEA> Girls who lunch only on a randy bar and soda pop may bear unhealthy babies. This warning comes from doctors who also have found that women with poor nutrition are likely to lose their babies during pregnancy. Medical concern over the situation has been heightened by surveys showing that teen-aged girls have the worst dietary habits of £<ny group in the population. With the" number of adolescent marriages on the up-swing. physicians view this disregard for proper nutrition as one of the nation's major health problems. Dr. Philip L. White, Secretary of the American Medical Association's Council on Nutrition, declares: "To meet the demands of pregnancy, a woman must be adequately prepared with a long experience of good nutrition. You can't correct the effects of poor dietary habits overnight, in a week or in a month." The reason, Dr. White explains, is that during pregnancy a mother's diet must nourish both herself and the unborn child. Her own vitamin and mineral requirements also are greater than usual due to physical changes caused by pregnancy. An expectant mother who has observed correct dietary habits over a long period of time builds up a nutrient store. This reserve of vitamins and minerals helps her body meet its additional needs, thereby allowing more nourishment from meals to be used by the child. Without an adequate reserve, both bodies have trouble getting enough nourishment. "Parents." says Dr. White, "have a responsiblity to develop in their children good nutritional habits." He believes they should instill these habits while children are very young and make sure they follow them while growing up. Otherwise, he contends, youngsters will fall into the bad eating habits prevalent among today's teen-age girls. Dr. White believes the principal reason for the poor nutritional status of adolescent girls is that they AND A SODA POP: a good social life, but a risky diet. want to stay slim and attractive. 'They gel ideas that certain foods are taboo because they are fattening," he explains, "and often these are the foods with the highest nutritional value." For instance, he says, "Girls cannot substitute a soda pop for r. glass of milk and still expect to get the same needed nutrients." Anyway, he explains, no food will make you fat unless you eat more of it than your body requires. The nutrients most lacking in adolescent girls are: Vitamin A, found in milk, butter, eggs and vegetables. Vitamin C, which comes from fruit juices. Iron, found in red meats and eggs.
