Q(i! i THE FAMILY CIRCUS fey fiil Keane Dear "Billy's selling his nickel candy for a dime." Traffic jams delay stork CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WMNS) - If clogged roads and traffic jams unpredictably delayed storks as well as people, doctors would be less tempted to try to schedule childbirths. As it is, warns Dr. Charles Hendricks, chairman of the obstetrics department of the University of North Carolina, the chemical induction of labor is spreading. In rural areas, where the expectant mother lives far from the hospital and where there's a doctor shortage, some overworked physicians have induced labor in more ' than half of their patients. In large cities, labor is traditionally induced only for medical reasons. But now, says Dr. Hendricks, induced labor is becoming more acceptable because miserable rush hour traffic conditions between suburbs and downtown hospitals make many trips a perilous race between stork and driver. The obstetrician believes that nonmedical induction should never be done for the convenience of the doctor but is sometimes permissible for the convenience of the patient. By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: Your advice to ignore the existence of a friend's hippie son was tea party advice. Two of our three .children went the hippie route, and any friend who wanted to know how the "g o o d" one was, soon learned he'd better ask about the "bad" ones, too. Kids on the skids can Abby use a little loyalty. So can their parents. How are our "bad" kids doing now? Well, this is sev- Kids on hippie skids can use some loyalty eral years later, and. now, thank God, we can say, "Just fine." At least they're living decent lives. They learned a tot. So did we. But they didn't get off scot-free. They're stilt paying a big price for their self-destructive behavior, having experimented with drugs. Notice, however, I say THEY are paying, not we. They have hurt nobody but themselves, so to whom must we apologize? And before whom should we feel ashamed? We know our children didn't fall into evil ways by following the examples set for them at home, but they are still our dear children whether they mess up their lives or not. Too many young people today must "buy" their places in their homes by giving only pleasure arid prestige to their parents. The young person who turns hippie soon finds out whether there is a price on his parents' love or not. So do the parents. Many adults don't give a hoot about the children of their friends. They just inquire to be polite. But once you have a black sheep or two in your home you find out who your friends are. They care. They ask. They listen, and they comfort you. They save your sanity. "KNOWS" IN SIERRA MADRE, CAL. DEAR ABBY: I wonder if those "friends" who asked whether to inquire about a son who had gone the hippie route were friends of ours. I think your advice (not to mention him since it surely must be a painful subject to the parents) was good. We speak from experience because our son is a hippie. All of our friends know how heartbroken we are over it, and they do us a kindness by not bringing it up. They also know that if we had any GOOD news of our son we would lose no time in sharing it with them. And, Abby, please tell parents of fine children who are functioning well to please refrain from bragging about them to parents who are not so lucky. We still hold some hope for our lost son. HEARTBROKEN IN LEEDS, ALA. DEAR ABBY: If someone were to ask me where my son is now, I wish to God that I could say, "He's living in a hippie colony in San Francisco"! At least then there would be some hope that he'd straighten out and come home again. Instead he lies dead. He was killed last July in Viet Nam. A beautiful. 19-year-old boy. He was all I had.
