Brandstadt, M.. normal cho- Q. What is the lesterol level? A. The normal level is 150 to 250, but most authorities recommend keeping it under 220. Q. My son, 32, now refuses to eat eggs, cheese, butter and milk because he read that these foods would cause heart trouble. What do you think? A The foods mentioned are not. a direct cause of heart trouble. They are valuable foods that should be eaten in moderation. They may contribute to the risk of heart disease only if they are taken in amounts that lead to obesity or a high cholesterol level. ! Q. My cholesterol level is 3.1G. How can I lower it? A. Cut down on your intake of all fats, especially those of animal origin. ! Q. I have been taking Atrc- mid-S to lower my cholesterol j level. Now my level is normal but my doctor wants me to continue taking this drug. Are there '• any bad side effects? What is the difference between blood fat; and cholesterol? : A. Atromid - S is a brand of clofibrate and is very effec- j tive in lowering the cholesterol level. It may cause nausea, headache, dizziness, fatigue and itching. Special p r ecautions must be taken when it is given to a person who is taking anticoagulants. Cholesterol is one i of several blood lipids or blood fats. Q. What causes angina pectoris? I am taking Peritrate and Periactin. How do they benefit angina? A. The cause is a spasm or a partial obstruction of a coronary artery. Peritrate is a long- acting nitrate that relax e s spasms in your arteries and relieves the pain of angina. Peri­ actin is an antihistamine given to relieve allergies. Q. I have angina pectoris but it has never shown up on my electrocardiograms. How does a doctor diagnose this diesease? Are there different types of angina? A. Angina pectoris is diagnosed chiefly by a careful evaluation of the type of pain it causes and by the fact that nitrates give prompt relief. Although the electrocardiograms may be helpful in some cases, it is not, a reliable means of diagnosis 1 of this condition. Since the term affecting various parts of the "angina" by itself means pain, there arc many types of angina jody. $1,000 Paid For Sea Otter Pelt STRIPED CRIB SHEETS Full size, $100 our reg. $1.19 I TOWEL & WASHCLOTH SET Big 18x24 terry towel, $400^ SI .29 value <?|wu^ HOODED TERRY TOWEL Kseps baby warm after bath, $ j 99 PLASTIC RUMBA PANTS Nylon ruffles, asst. colors, S-XL, /S^ reg. 49c ' LJ INFANT STRETCH TITES i Nylon, plastic lined, $ 1 00 ' teg. $1.19 I " UMBA STRETCH TITES Nylon, ruffle backside, $ 1 00 reg. $1.19 . . .

Fieiss & Fabrizio paid the top price as more than 500 of the i ri..(-d pelts went on the block. The skins brought an averaye of I KLT.ti each from bidders repre- I senting top fashion houses in the 'United States, Canada and Eu- vope. The first auction since 1911 was held last year. During the i intervening years, wildlife agencies carefully guarded the ani- m;\'s so they could multiply aft! er disastrous over-exploitation I by Russian and American fur ' companies. Alaska's sea otters now num- ; ber more than 30,000 and state ; officials say they are confident i controlled harvest of the animals will not decimate them. Most of the furs marketed Tuesday were taken from animals around Tanaga and Kana- j ga Islands in the Aleutians. Native hunters shot them under su- "vision of the Alaska Department of Fish & Game.
