Question: I have been taking a "low
dosage" pill for several months now and
recently I have been having a lot of
spotting during the middle of the month.
Is this an indication that 1 need a
"higher" dosage pill? Will changing
brands of pills eliminate this problem?
And since I've been taking the pill I've
had problems with constipation. Could
the pill be related or contributing to this
problem? Signed, Ms.
Dear Ms.: During the first few months
of taking the pill, some women
experience a small amount of bleeding or
spotting between periods. This seldom
lasts for more than a few days, rarely for
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
Were it not for a sudden burst of
energy by the Beach Boys the concert last
Tuesday in Carmichael would have been a
failure. It seemed as if the stage sound
system was intent on ruining the
excellent music of the Beach Boys.
In fact, the two opening songs
"Help me, Rhonda" and "Funky Pretty"
were ruined. There were several
problems. Of the groups's three
percussionists, two were loud enough to
drown out all the other instruments,
while the third was completely inaudible.
The bass was nothing but a vague rumble.
Alan Jardine's superb rhythm guitar
could barely be heard. I noticed the
sound of the acoustic piano on only two
or three songs. The vocals were
frequently imbalanced some louder and
clear than others. Dennis Wilson had to
signal several times to the sound crew to
turn up or down the volume of his
microphone. During one song, he was
forced to share microphones with Mike
Love.... Irritating squeals of feedback
pierced through the music in many songs.
No doubt, the eleven musicians on
stage realized that the performance was
dragging, for by the end of the second
set, they had stirred a disappointed
audience to intense, throbbing hysteria.
Blondie Chaplin's outstanding lead guitar
and .vocals on "Wild Honey", "Sail on,
Sailor", and "Leaving This Town" were
among the highlights of the night. Carl
Wilson proved that he is still 100 percent
Beach Boy with his tender singing on
"Caroline No" and "Darling", not to
mention his surf-sound guitar on "Surfin'
USA", "Johnny B. Goode" and "I Get
Around". Mike Love's stage antics were a
constant source of entertainment,
especially his Mick Jagger impersonation
during "Jumping Jack Flash". The
audience demanded two encores, and in
the midst of incredible excitement, it was
obvious that the Beach Boys are one of
the finest musical groups in the world.

To the Editor:
This is a rebuttal to the letter written
by John Victor Grainger the fourth which
appeared in the Thursday, April 1 2 DTH
about the issue of Jubilee and the
subsequent concert series at UNC.
First, may I point out that it doesn't
take an outdoor rock concert the likes of
Jubilee to spur the use and distribution of
drugs, as this happens everywhere: dorm
rooms, the upper quad, downtown and
most everywhere else, not just at rock
concerts. So your statement that "Jubilee
was not much more than one great opium
den, a haven for ' the illegal use and
more than a few months.
One cause of bleeding between periods
is a break in the regular pill schedule. If
you skip a day and forget to take your
pill, you may have some bleeding within a
day or two.
If you still have slight bleeding or
spotting between periods, continue to
take your pills regularly, but tell your
physician about it. Spotting may be
caused by any number of things and
changing brands mav not be the answer
to your problem.
The answer t your second question is

distribution of drugs" is all washed up.
Another misconception was that Navy
Field was unfit for several months. That
is pure baloney. The ROTC units used it
no more than one week later and the
football team used it in August at the
most. I grant you that fences were torn
up and fires were built and to go further a
Pinkerton guard was injured, but I remind
you that Jubilee was for Carolina
students only and these people were
high-schoolers and students from other
campuses. Measures could curb this
problem if someone wanted to try it
Finally, I am not mocking your taste
in music. I don't particularly care for
Rubenstein, or Ormandy, among others,
but 1 wouldn't lower myself to say they
suck, because they contribute to the
world of music just like the Beach Boys.
Those few thousand "Philistines" as you
call us, seemed really enthused at the
concert Tuesday and I am sure L can
speak for them and disagree with your
thoughts on the Beach Boys' music as
"rubbish." I have the audacity to call it
music, do you have the audacity to say it
isn't again? Think for a minute, just one
or two, and find it in your heart to listen
to the Beach Boys or James Taylor, or
Seals and Crofts, or Roberta Flack, who
have played here and see if you can find
music in them. If you don't, then man
you are blind to the world and deaf to
the concept of music.

The question is, just how do they go
about extracting the milk from the
mother's breast? Signed, Rita.
Dear Rita: There are several methods
by which the milk can be extracted. It
can be extracted by a breast pump, by
manual manipulation or mechanically by
an electric pump like cow's milk.
Question: I need a second opinion. My
doctor tells me I have a fibroid but
surgery is not necessary. Is it safe just to
leave it alone?. Signed, Worried.
Dear Worried: The operation for a
fibroid is a hysterectomy, or the removal
of the uterus, so most doctors won't
operate unless it's necessary. A fibroid,
by the way, is a benign growth in the wall
of the uterus. The operation is considered
necessary only if the fibroid causes

just months after it opened (and

Mr. Mann of the Record and Tape Center
as to the new competition from
Springfield Recording Company.
Che Kemp and the Bermans had an
amazing running battle in the early '60's,
but the Record Bar survived and, as we all
know, prospered. Then came the Record
and Tape Center, an upstart outfit up the
street with, I might note, fewer records
and lower prices. It, too, survived and
prospered, even if to a lesser extent

Much has been made of the "end of

Question: How would a doctor test me
for gonorrhea? Signed, Curious.
Dear Curious: In a male, the physician
takes a smear of . the discharge and
examines it under a microscope. In a few
minutes he usually knows one way or the
other. In doubtful cases he may send a
swab to a lab for testing.
In a female, the test is simple too. The
physician swabs the vagina. He then sends
the swab to a laboratory for testing. The
results are sent back to the physician in a
couple of days.
Because it is possible to have both
syphilis and gonorrhea at the same time, a
physician usually will take a blood sample
to test for syphilis, while testing for
Question: I understand that the IUD is
not by any means a modern method of
contraception. What's its history, doc?
Dear R.D.: The IUD is in fact an
ancient method of birth control. In
various - forms it is described by
Hippocrates and also was used by the
ancient Persians. In the earlier part of this
century, IUD's were developed in
Germany. However, because of the
materials used and the conditions under
which they were inserted, problems of
infection and . hemorrhage resulted.
Widespread use was limited and
eventually the IUD was banned.
In recent years new IUD's have been
developed. Over 100 different types of
IUD's are now being used throughout the
world. In the United States the most
commonly used devices include the
Dalkon Shield, Lippes Loop, the
Saf-T-Coil, the Marguiles coil, the Majzlin
spring, and the Birnberg bow.

their REAL name in the book, and when
someone had a big date, the cards in the
dorm would rush down and insert the
guy's name along with some other girl for
the previous evening. The registers only
lasted a semester.

complaints are lodged against a house, in

But nothing happens if the
complaints are not reported. I assume
you live in a fraternity yourself. If you
don't report it, you are as guilty as the

I say, electoral politics.
Several thousand UNC students
registered to vote, but Howard Lee's
congressional bid fell 16,000 votes short.
Students by a 98 margin backed the
winning candidate for State Senate, and
also supported two County Commission
candidates still in their 20's, who won the
primary (one by only 80 votes).
In November, student registration in
Orange County advanced to about 7,500.
So what of the new students, those
who came to college since the end of
protest, since 1970? Commentators say
they are less liberal. What does this mean?
Is there a rejection of activism, or just a
feeling of defeat? Nixon carries on, and it
doesn't seem like anything will help.
State legislators try to Figure out when
to move the elections so as to
disenfranchise students, and alcohol
becomes the new drug.
Political commentators keep on
commentating, but Walter Cronkite is still
been fun. Writing a weekly column
is usually not an easy thing, and
eventually (note this column) you have
absolutely nothing to say.
