JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Polycythcma is a disease in which there is a large and lasting increase above normal in the number of red cells in the blood. Sometimes the number of red cells may lie more than twice normal. Its cause is not known. In a way it is the opposite of anemia. The most striking symptom is a brick-red blushing of the face and hands. The diagnosis depends on finding an enlarged spleen and on the increased number of cells by the usual count- DOROTHY D!X Whet Good's a Husband? I Lost Purses, Chap. 1.

Many treatments have been tried for polycythemia. including the removal of some blood from a vein. Repeated small bleedings is probably the oldest form of treatment. Several drugs aimed at destroying the excess red blood cells have been used with some success. X-ray treatments also have been tried'.

The use of this substance for polycythemia is the first proved contribution of atom- smashing and nuclear physics to the healing aspects of medicine. Phosphorus is an element. Radi- | Di -ar Dorothy Dix: What's tin- good of a husband anywav? | CYNICAL' Answer: Well, there are many things about a husband that make him worth his board and keep and a desirable household ornament. In the first place, a husband is necessary {or the making of a home. Inasmuch as all that most men do in their homes is to knock things about and drop cigarette arhes on the floor and i;;-owl over the bills, it looks as if they could be easily dispensed with. Such, however, is not the case. Somehow, it takes a man to give j flavor to a home and put some pep into a woman's house-keeping. The my husband cr'a/.y about the child, yet take care of her.

This method of treatment for poly- cythemia seems to be definitely superior to other methods employed in the past, though bleeding is still used. Radioactive phosphorus is still not easily obtained and it has to be given carefully, directly into a vein. When more is known about tho c-iu.se of the disease, still further improvement in the treatment can be anticipated. In this disease, however, we have the first good example of the beneficial results in the treatment of diseases coming from discoveries in nuclear physics and atomic research.

QUESTION: What could be wrong with a person who has no heart trouble but can feel his heart beating? ANSWER: This is probably purely a nervous reaction which doctors call "heart consciousness." Arkansas Has 47 Per Cent Gain in Cotton homes of widows and always seem to have a flat atmosphere, no matter how beautifully they are furnished. And it is notorious that lonely women nearly always are half-starved, because they don't think it worth while to get up a good dinner unless some man is to eat it. A husband is useful as a bill- payer. He is certainly handy to have around the house on the first of the month. Every woman who has to earn her own bread and butter envies her sister who can sit back pretty and let George do it. And a nice, housebroken husband makes the loveliest sort of a pet. He is far superior to a canary bird. Women Need Trouble A husband is well nigh indispensable as a source of secret sorrow, without which no woman is ever really happy'. Every woman has to have a trouble, even if she has to manufacture one out of whole cloth, but if she has a husband she has a genuine bonafide grievance right in her hand. If he drinks, or steps out of night, or has a hankering for women, she has something to weep over and talk over with Mother and the girls and her best friend, and that justifies her in her own eyes in going on an orgy of self- pity. And. failing all else, she always can have a husbond who j doesn't understand her. whereas i the poor, unfortunate spinster is > simply debarred from the rnartvr j role. " " I And perhaps the chief virtue that | a husband has in the eyes of the ! majority of women is that he keeps a woman from being an old maid and enables her to put those sacred letters MRS. before her name, which she covets more ihan she does all of the degrees handed out by universities. The possession of a husband —no matter what a poor, moth-eaten specimen of the genus he may be—saves her face among the matrons and protects her against their insulting sympathy. She, too. is of the elect. Id 'm-iids I tneir liulc minds unfold. i Anyw ay. dump the baby on your husband and go to your room and relax and read a good book. He will like it after he gets used to it. 21 Jewel Dear Dorothy Dix: Do all men. after they are marled, still seek the company of other women? 1 am on the verge of being married, but lately have heard so many rumors about different women's husbands having affairs that it has sickened me and made me afraid to marry. 1 don't feel that I could bear thai.' WORRIED Answer: Of course, all men are not reamers, my dear. You only hear about the bad ones, and nothing is said about the 99 out of 100 good, domestic husbands who punch the home time clock every evening of their lives, and who never even so much as glance sidewise at any woman other thhn their lawfully wedded wives. Don't be afraid to undertake one of the domesticated animals, and if you will be kind and gentle to him and treat him well and give him n pat on the head, it is a hundred to one shot that he never will wander away into forbidden pastures.

She tilted her pretty shining j head and her young chin quivered. But her voice was steady, if husky, when she explained, "Tip Kennedy. He's my dream-date. He gave me this ring." She held out the little paw that was still slightly grubby, the fingers clenched tightly to hold in place the large class ring on which the light twinkled. Kin said, startled, "Engaged'.' But, Merry, you're too young." She nodded soberly. "Oh, we weren't going to be married until after I'd finished high—not for two more years. Only now I'll have to give him back his ring and break up." Penny Staples would latch onto Tip, of course.
