XXX cringe each time my daugh- ter sits through one of these "tv deliveries" with all the dramatics, sweat, scream. ing, etc. It's a wonder pros- pective mothers aren't ner- vous wrecks by the time they go through the birth exper- ience. Mothers who have studied the birth process, what each stage means, how the body is built to complete the delivery, who have positive and knowledgeable atti- tudes and realize they can remain in control of the sit- uation, do not have the bad experiences that are related to millions over television and movie screens. By both of us studying and knowing all we could about the birth or delivery process, Yvonne went through three easy deliver- ies with our children. In fact, they came about so smoothly and fast, there wasn't much time for dra- matics. We were convinced that giving birth to our child- ren was a blessed event and it was completed without fuss, fear or fatigue. Incidentally, Congress- man English will be at the Perkins Co-op office for a reception Friday, April 8, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. xxx My friend Pete Pedersen from over Catoosa-Tulsa way tells me that even though he is nearer 80 than he is 70. he has almost stop- ped chasing women. He adds. "Almost! 1 did chase an old girl off my lawn when she backed up on it in her car!" XXX We enjoyed the tv movie Sunday evening, "Jesus of Nazareth". About the only part that disillusioned us was the scenes of Mary giving birth to Jesus. l can't buy the fact that God would choose Mary to conceive and carry Jesus and cause her all that misery and pain in delivering. He is a merci- ful God and the director should have recognized this. Movies and TV, in my opinion, have caused much suffering and fearful anti- cipation to mothers in the process of childbirth. I Perhaps this may seem like a strange editorial com- ment, but tv and movie directors could best serve their audiences if they would cut out the dramatics in assimilated child birth. Also those who have been through it and think they haven't done their duty without extreme suffering should keep their remarks to themselves. And in the meantime, we hope some- body will write a good book or conduct classes on me- thods of the natural and blessed aspects of mother- hood. -O- PERKINS TOWN MEETING from Page 1) ment through the city's Comprehensive Plan. Other problems discussed were the ambiguous markinR of a parking zone:, Paul Brower was concerned about the markings near the Champlin Station which in his opinion can be taken as either a "parking zone or a no parking zone." The issue was referred to the municipal judge. The state's new ruling concerning the legality for person or persons age 18 and over to buy beer will not affect the town code in regard to hiring or serving and allowing person or persons under age 21 to drink beer on the premises where it is sold. The problem of vicious dogs and/or those not tagged is a constant and serious threat to the town. The Council agreed to have untagged dogs picked up effective immediately. J.H. Smith will meet with the Council members in the near future to discuss further efforts to provide the present needs of Perkins. The proper agencies and procedures necessary for such projects, now and in the future, are a constant challenge to the smaller communities which have unique and adverse problems the Council must consider for the town's welfare as a whole. i<:: !!!i .....  :!: :: APRIL 24 GIVE gIVE , , gIVE 6111E BIlE (From Page 1) WE CALIF.
