Dear Ann Landers: I can appre-
ciate a scientific breakthrough as
much as the next person but enough
is enough. Give us a break. _
A while back researchers in the
labs were working overtime on ways
to extend life expectancy well past
100. It would not be considered
unusual for a person to reach his or
her 170th birthday. When I read that,
all I could think of was buying
Christmas gifts for children, grand-
children, great-grandchildren, great-
great-grandchildren and great-great-
great-grandchildren. Have mercy.
And now I read about yet another
remarkable effort. Get this:
Scientists have now made it possible
for women who have gone through
menopause to become pregnant
through the implantation of
"donated" eggs. According to the
New England Journal of Medicine,
four out of seven post-menopausal
women who used this method
became pregnant and gave birth to
Cut it out, you folks in the
nation's research centers. There is
still a long list of diseases that we
have no cure for. Please wok on
them and don’t "help" women in their
late 40s and 50s have babies. The
best break Mother Nature gives us
is menopause and the freedom from
pregnancy. Please, you geniuses,
keep your cotton-pickin' hands off
this God-given blessing. --

Dear Ann Landers: I'm a
16-year-old girl who moved to New
York from the Midwest. A few
months ago I began to go with a
guy who is very good-looking and
considered a "catch." Everything was
fine until he started to push me
around. Physically, I mean. We got
into a silly argument about which
TV channel to watch and he socked
me in the arm so hard it left a great
big black and blue mark that lasted
a week. When my mother asked me
about it, I lied and said I ran into a
I like this guy a lot but I'm not
willing to be a punching bag to keep

that could get out of control. Do you
think if I laid down the law he would
be more respectful? Please give me
some advice, Ann.

DEAR LONG ISLAND: I'm glad
you wrote. It's been a long time since
I have addressed this problem in the
column. The following guidelines
suggested by the New Jersey
Battered Women’s Services were
designed to help teen-age girls iden-
tify abusive relationships:

things or go places without him?
- Are you afraid he will hurt you?
- Are you afraid to break up with
If your answer is yes to the
majority of these questions, you are
in a relationship that places you at
risk of being abused. My advice,
based on what you have written, is
to deep-six this guy immediately, if
not sooner. That punch on the arm
is a small sample of what you'd be
in for if he became seriously upset
with you. Don't hang around to find
out what's coming next. Head for

If you have any cherished memen-
« from your childhood stored in
your parents' home, reclaim them
before it is too late.
When people get on in years they
frequently become forgetful.'The
day may come when Mom or Dad
no longer remembers whose belong-
ings are up in the attic or what they
are doing there. Sometimes they are
unaware that those items have any
value (either monetary or sentimen-
tal) and throw them away or give
them to charity.
I'm writing this letter, unfortu-
nately, after a sad experience.
Perhaps it will help someone for
whom it is not too late. Sincerely -
DEAR ALASKA: Most people
would never give it a thought.
Thanks for the tip.
