WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 1969 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS 7—B The Well Child Accidental Chokings *f Largely Preventable jBjr Wayne G. Brandstadt, M.D. .Small children learn about garious objects by putting them in their mouths. A sudden fit of laughing, crying or gasping may carry the object Into the windpipe and cause choking, a common but frightening experience for both mo- fher and child. Snice infants yho do not yet have their mo- jars cannot grind peanuts, popcorn or hard candy, they should not be given such items. The objects most commonly involved in choking attacks, however, are safety pins. An infant who sees his mo­ ther with a mouthful of pins naturally thinks the mouth is the place for them and imitates what he sees. Not only should safety pins be kpt out of reach of an infant, mothers also should not set their children the bad example of holding pins in their mouths. When not u\ use. safety pins should always be closed!. Mothers of small children should bear in mind that each year peanuts, candy, watermelon seeds and other hard objects kill a great many babies. Most such accidents can be pre­ vent by watching the baby more closely. In any case, if your baby starts to choke, don't panic . Don't pound him on the back because mis may interefer with his possibly successful efforts to cough the foreign body out. Don't prod his throat with your finger because this is likely to push the foreign body farther down his windpipe. If the initial choking stops, don't assume that the foreign boyd was swallowed. If it was small, it may have lodged in his lung where it will not cause any immediate symptoms. Call a physician who will arrange for X rays or a bronschoscopic examination or other. A foreign boy in the lung must be removed promptly or it will cause pneumonia or a lung abscess. Q. My son, 4, has frequent nosebleeds. What causes them? Could they be serious? Will he outgrow them? Should I take him to a nose specialist? A. Nosebleeds in children are common, sometimes occurring as often as three or four times a week. Hot, dry air favors the, formation of hard crusts ;in^he nose. Then a light blow dr picking the nose may start ! the bleeding. Most children out- j grow nosebleeds in adolescence , or sooner. Except in a congenital bleeder, they are not serious but when repeated more than twice a week they may cause secondary anemia. For this rea- I son, if they persist, it is wise to consult a nose and throat ; specialst. The capital of Saskatchewan, Canada, was nmed Regina in 1882 in honor of Victoria Regina, queen of England. Farm News By DO.V KENDALL AP Farm Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — The production of herbicides to kill weeds which threaten crops appears to be gaining in the United States because of rapid advances in farm mechanization, says the Agricultural Department. Sales of the chemical weed killers nearly tripled in value in the 1963-67 period, or more than double the rate of all other chomical pesticides—insect and disease-control agents—put t> <rether, the department said in a report. The value of weed-killer sales moved ahead of insecticides for the first time in 1967 and ac­ counted for nearly 55 per cent of all the man-made pesticide chemicals, the report said. But over-all, the volume of pesticide manufacture continues to show steady annual gains, department officials say. Production rose more than 37 per cent during the five - year period, ranging in annual gain from 2.5 per cent in 1964 to 15.5 per cent in 1966. In all, more than one billion pounds of pesticides were turned out in 1967 for a value of more than $924 million, the report said. The United States produces more than half ot the world's synthetic pesticides, the report said. Exports In 1967 totaled nearly $196 million, up 13 per cent from a year earlier. WASHINGTON (AP) The annual national conference for bargaining cooperatives will be held Jan. 12-13 in Washington. The meeting will be sponsored by the Farmer Cooperative Service of the Agriculture Department. Speakers will include Sen. Ralph W. Yarborough, D-Tex., who will discuss some of the issues involved in farm bargaining.
