Bt JOSEPH G. MOLNER, MJ Dear Dr. Molner: Many people have a problem of liquid retention by the body. I am overweight and realize that may have some bearing, but I had this trouble before, too. Otherwise I am in excellent health, MRS. W. M. Dear Doctor: My case has been diagnosed as "cyclic edema." I was told there is no known cause. I have tried diuretics but none has helped for any length of time. The swelling is not limited to any one part of the body. A slight pressure, such as from a watch band, underclothes, waist or neck band, causes large welts which last for hours and sometimes overnight. MRS. L. F. Edema (accumulation of excess fluid in the body tissues) is, indeed, a common problem. When it comes and goes periodically, it is called cyclic edema, which is peculiar to women. Rather than agreeing that there is no known cause, I'd rather state there is no SINGLE cause for all cases. Most women have an increase in water retention just before the menstrual period, with an increase in weight of from one to perhaps 10 pounds; the weight is promptly lost, through release of the water, when the period starts. With some women the problem can be more severe than that, and various factors may be involved. Sheer overweight is one, hence should be corrected for the patient's comfort. Or the amount of estrogen (female sex hormone) produced by the body can have its effect on HEALTH CAPSULES by Michael A. Petti, HJX NAVE THE NUMBER OF CALORIES REQUIRE?

Huhk CipiuUl graw twipU blmmrf sttMtaidadtabafdia0Mtficartw the system and rate of fluid retention. One research report has noted that some women have had a severe strep infection earlier in life, perhaps altering the capillaries, or very small blood vessels, permitting more fluid to seep into the tissues. Because hormone activity is closely related to the psychological or emotional state, attention to tensions can be helpful. Indeed, in some cases deep-seated emotional problems have been found, and efforts to ease them have been reflected in less edema. Keeping salt in the diet at a minimum is an obvious measure, because the more salt in the body, the more water retained. Diuretics (drugs to release excess fluid) can be helpful when used periodically. Sometimes they are sufficient to keep the pa tient adequately comfortable. In severe cases, they cannot be expected to do it all, and weight reduction, low-salt diet, measures to control emotional tension and other steps may be required. Low thyroid activity also tends to cause some degree of fluid retention. The welts suggest an "angioneurotic edema," and possibly an allergic disorder of some kind. In most of the cylic edema cases of the sort we are discussing, there is no kidney, liver or , heart disease although there can be continuing and serious edema from those causes. ; While cyclic edema cannot be neatly pigeon-holed as coming from any single cause, fortunately severe cases of it are not common. I Dear Dr. Molner: Can Xrays, given by a dentist every six months, be dangercus? Many dentists Xray before they, fix the teeth. I am sure many mothers are interested in this. A. W. With modern equipment and in skilled hands, I see no reason for concern. - Dear Dr. Molner: I am bothered with sore corners of my mouth. Cold creams, oils, etc., effect no cure. At times they are heavily encrusted, What causes these eruptions? MISS G.B. It can be from ,a Vitamin B deficiency. How is your diet? Another common cause is sensitivity to lipstick or possibly to a dentifrice. Try changing these, or even going without lipstick for a time. Dr. Chandler Dies; Founder Of State Police ALBANY CP Dr. George Fletcher Chandler, who founded the New York State Police and was credited with bringing law enforcement to the state's rural areas, died yesterday in a rest home at Kingston. He was 91. Chandler, a physician, organized the force in 1917, on appointment from the then Gov Charles S. Whitman. He sen d as its commanding of-ficei with the title of colonel. until he resigned in 1923 to return to medical practice He maintained his interest in the law enforcement agency and only last June toured the State Polive DM sion s new headquarters in Albany and the Troop G head quarters in nearby Loudon- ville. Arthur Cornelius Jr., super intendent of State Police, said yesterday Chandler's death "ended a notable career in medicine and law enforce ment of one of the state's most distinguished citizens "Col. Chandler," Cornelius said, "developed the concept of the trooper as the symbol of the state s law enforcement officer, bringing law and order to the then rural and unprotected areas of the state." Chandler's survivors include two sons, actor Chester (Chick) Chandler of Laguna Beach, Calif., and Daniel of Dallas, Tex. ROCHESTER DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLE i r A r Saturday, Nov.

Fr Mr li9 Siqm at Cw. MmDm 4. 4 WUdT mark. The designation climaxed a long battle to save the 73-year-old hall from being razed to make way for an office building at 57th Street and Seventh Avenue. On hand for the brief ceremony were Robert F. Wagner, Secretary of the Interior Steward Udall and violinist Isaac Stern. It was Stern who spearheaded a drive that saved the "Old Lady of 67th Street" from the wreckers. Stern rallied a group of civic and other leaders in a drive that eventually resulted in the purchase of the building for $5 million by the city. The hall now is operated by the Carnegie Hall Corp., a non-profit, quasi-governmental organization. Highlight of yesterday's ceremony was the unveiling of a bronze plaque to the side of the hall's main entrance designating it a national historic shrine. Wagner noted that the city "is being repaid financially as well as spiritually for the investment we mad i in 1960." The mayor, noting that the world famous hall had mythology and folklore all its own, also said it even had its own jokes.' He told the one about a visitor to New York City asking a news-dealer how he could get to Carnegie Hall. "Practice, boy, practice," came the reply. More than $150,000 has been spent in the last four years to improve the building,- in which the world's most famous musicians Jiave played over the years. The hall also has been used for speaking programs, rallies and lectures.
