President Gabriel Gon/.alei: Videla forecast establishment of the new base on -his return last February from his trip to the Antarctic, where he dedicated the army base. The two existing bases are weather stations.;..from which the personnel also go out on exploration trips. These Chilean outposts arc in territory also claimed by Great Britain and Argentina. Chile and Argentina agreed early in 1048 to negotiate a settlement of their own Antarctic boundaries and defend their claims jointly against third par- lies.

This is the preliminary evidence gathered by researchers of the Alabama Polytechnic Institute who contend that common varieties of "nuisance" mosquitoes arc hilhcr- to-un-considcrcd threats to the nation's production of eggs. They also say that mosquitoes —given a choice among chickens, cattle and hogs—apparently prefer to fill themselves on the blood of chickens about nine times in ten. Thus, they conclude, any programs designed to achieve mosquito control through use of VJDT and other measures should pay primary attention to chicken houses as the preferred restaurants o.f these high-ranking pests of nature. Research at Polytech, headed by Dr. S. Allan Edgar, is concerned primarily with the "nuisance" mosquito, as distinguished ,*rom the malaria-transmitting type. And the .scientists point out that the "nuisance" mosquito, in one form or another, is found in all parts of the United States as far north as Alaska. In Alabama, they say, one type of "nuisance" mosquito also can carry a disease called "fowl pox" from one chicken lo another —and they arc seeking evidence as to j whether this same pest might even transmit cholera and typhoid fever from one human being to another. They have suggestive evidence on what Alabama's No. 1 mosquito nuisance —the "culeax quin- qucfasciatus" —can do to chickens in the way of effecting lowered egg production. In 1940, when the population 'of mosquitoes was high, the scientists found that a group of chickens screened against the insects produced 15 per cent more eggs for the year than c^d birds left open lo attack. The conclusions arc' that the mosquitoes drain sufficient blood ] from the birds to lower their bus I egg-producing capacity. In tests designed to, determine the mosqui.lo-'s choice of food, the Polytech scientists capture insects and" subject engorged blood to techniques used by criminologisls to differentiate between poultry, animal and human blood. In a spot check to determine the mosquito's choice between chicane! man, J. E. Hill, a graduate student working with Dr. Edgar's group, shoved his arm in a mosquito-filled cake where a chicken also rested. He left his arm there for more than hour, counted the mosquitoes that gathered on his arm and those that picked the Doyle Doyle Home Demonstration Club mel on December 15 at the church with eleven members, three visitors, and five children present.

Overheating and lack of exercise frequently cause persons to develop symptoms of indigestion, Home Demonstration Agent Lorraine Blackwood points out. This happens more often in winter than in summer months, because people cat more of the heavier foods such as pork, gravy, butter, rich desserts and highly seasoned foods. "You've got lo get enough exercise when you're eating heavy foods or the organs of the body refuse to function properly," the home demonstration agent asserts. A minor ailment, indigestion is tolerated .by, most persons, who take it for" granted thai il will follow a gnpd meal. But symptoms of indigestion may be a warning sign of certain diseases of the digestive tract, the agent explains. If the symptoms persist over a period .of months, she recommends seeing a doctor. "Don't try to treat indigestion yourself," the home demonstration agent cautions. "Home remedies sometimes give temporary relief, hut often they do more harm than good. Let your doctor diagnose your case and prescribe the proper treatment." But the best thing to do to avoid indigestion is to eat moderately, according to the amount of exercise taken, avoid mental or emotional tensions; and keep in good physical 'condition.
