KV«WKG GA£f8TTE, WEDMBSDAV, JUNE 21,1933,, HOW TO KEEP WELL -—By DR. FRANK Me COY-— Correcting Secondary Anemin In yesterday's article I mentioned .me of the causes of secondary anemia. It may also be interesting for you to know some of the common symptoms that may develop when secondary anemia ig present. There may be a tired, listless feeling; faintnew; irregular heartbeat; poor appetite; abnormal food craving as for coffee grounds, chalk, lead pencils, etc.; sometimes swelling in the ankles; dizziness, headache; k mental irritability: ringing noises in the care; a trembling sensation; in- abilty to concentrate long on one subject; shortness' of breath; feeing of chilliness and claminess; pale tjnts to the skin and lack of color of the nails; low blood pressure and digestive upsets. In treating secondary anemia, it is important to correct the primary cause or disorder. If pus pockets are- present, they should be drained whenever possible and local treatments inaugurated. If a systemic disease ia present, that should, of course, fee corrected. When the primary cause.has been cured, the number of red "blood cells and the amount of red coloring matter they contain are automatically increase'd. This is brought on because in health the blood making machinery is not required to Work • at full speed to keep the red cells up to normal. There exists a reserve capacity which is not called upon, much the .same as an automobile factory which Hoes not use all of its men or itsUnachincry to supply the current market. Once the pni«>ns that have 'been destroying the blood cells Arc eliminated, the body is able to speed up production so that the blood soon comes back to a normal basis. This remarkable power of the body to maka new blood cells is the reason that blood donors, who sell tir give away a quart of blood, are able to make good the IOFS within a short time. In addition to correcting the primary disorder, I have found it advisable in cases of secondary anemia to eliminate. the systemic toxemia as quickly as possible. This is most readily accomplihed by means of a short acid fruit fast. During this fasting regimen the blood improves in quality and the almost unbelieve- able fact is that f hc number of red blood cells is increased at a rapid rate. This can be readily proven by examining the blood through a microscope, and I have yet to see a case which does not quickly respond. This treatment also assists in absorbing and eliminating- the' pus which was not removed 'by the local treatments, and the number of white blood cells, therefore,"becomes more nearly normal. During- a fasting regimen it' is very important to include the other hygienic measures such as enemas, sponge 'baths, etc., that arc a part of any correct fasting treatment. After this tho patient should follow a good diet including easily di- gested protein foods and a largo amount of the cooked and raw non- .stnrchy vegetables since the latter furnish the iron that the body is now in a condition to use. The 'best vegetables arc spinach, celery, asparagus and carrots. The unsulphur- ccl, dried fruits arc also good for anemia patients. The yolk of egg makes a valuable addition to the diet but must not be used to excess. Deep breathing exercises .should be started immediately. at the beginning of the treatment, and they should be taken several, times each day, as the patient needs all of the oxygen he can absorb, Sun baths are also beneficial if the patient avoids sunburning as the ultra-violet rays in the sunlight are very valuable in bringing up the tone ami alkalinity of the blood. Exercise, suftictenc 1 sleep and other" healthful practices fov building the vitality should also be encouraged. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS All questions regarding health and diet will be answered. A large, stamped, self-addressed envelope must be enclosed. Write on one side of the paper only. Letters must not exceed 150 words. Address Dr. Prank McCoy, 689 South Ardmore Ave., Los Angeles, Calif., for reply. Arms Sore from Vaccination Question: G. G. C. writes: "I know several children who were vaccinated about a year ago. Their arms were not sore and appeared to be entirely well. The f-car left an indention, a:-- usual, aJid recently the place has puffed up and formed a hard, knotty pone. The children also complain of their arms being sore. Please tell me what causes thi.s ,<md also the remedy." Answer: The remedy for such a condition as you describe is for the children to be' put on a fairly long- fast of, say, ten days or two weeks. This is the only method T know of for getting rid of such a deep-seated infection. The. experience of these children is very common and comes from the infection from ?he streptococcus or staphyloeoccus bateria, which may be btained by sending in smallpox vaccine. Wottian Wrecks Church in Nightie Battle This dramatic picture shows Mrs. Mabel Ferguson kneeling beside a statue she aasertedly smashed during a battle hi nightgowns with M/s. Josephine Trust, pastor of a Los Angeles tajbornacle. Mrs. Ferguson said BUG felt it her duty to ,wreck the church "because Mrs. Trust married a mere mortal instead of an angel." Answer: Hives are caused from chronic hyperacidity of the stomach which is brought ~r> an acute stage by the use of some especially irritating food, or bad mixtures of even good foods. Information foi' overcoming this trouble is contained in my article' called "Nettle Rash," which may be obtajned by sending in a large, stamped, self-addressed envelope and a three-cent stamp. No Gargle for Cafarrh Question: Raymond H. inquires: "Is the mixture of equal parts of salt and soda a good gargle for catarrh?" Answer: There i.s no gargle which can 'be said to be good for catarrh. Remove the cause from the inside by changing your diet, and the catarrh on any of your mucous membranes will disappear. Hives Caused by Acidity Question: Mr. Willard S. writes: "I ,s«em to be in good health, but every once in a while I have a siege of hive.?. Will you please tell me the cause?"

ROCKNE BUILT BY STUDEBAKER Cottage ci;ee5e is at its best in the early summer and is a delightful addition to the summer menu. Theu'e are so many attractive ways to serve it and it combines so readily with appetizing food accessories that it is a favorite standby with many clever housewives. Most of the city markets and dairies offer-a very good quality of cottage cheese. It may usually be had in two forms, mixed with cream ready for use, or unmixed. The unmixed is, of course, cheaper to buy; although if cream must be purchased for the mixing, the final cost i? practically the same. However, cottage cheese can be made at home and it's an excellent way to use milk when it sours. If you follow the rules can't help but have successful results and the cheese will be most delectable. Because it is the prot.ein part of the. milk, cottage cheese will take the place of meat or eggs for luncheon or supper or the picnic meal. , Directions Arc Simple Thick, curdled milk that has soured quickly is the best foundation for a good quality of cottage cheese and while there are several ways'of making the cheese, perhaps the following is the easiest: Place the bowl containing the thick sour milk into a large pan of hot water. Never let the milk become more than "blood" heat. Too high a temperature toughens and hardens the curd. Let stand until thorough separation takes place. Then pour into a large square of double cheesecloth placed over a colander. Gather up the four corners of the cheesecloth and hang up to drain, let it drain until the curd is firm and all the whey is drained out. Remove from cheesecloth to a bowl and beat with a fork; adding cream, cither sweet or sour, to make the mixture of the right consistency. Add salt to "taste/' usually about 1-2 teaspoon to *2 cups cheese. Serve a big dish of cottage cheese plain, or sprinkle with chopped chives, or. mix it with minced onions, olives or cucumber dice, or use shredded green pepper or pimento. Two or three of these additions may be used in combination. An unusual and delicious dessert for summer meals combine's unmixed cottage with whipped cream, using equal parts of whipped cream and cheese. Serve with strawberry or currant preserves and crisp crackers. Tomorrow's Menu Breakfast: Watermelon cones, cereal, cream, broiled cottage ham, potatoes hashed in milk, toast, milk, coffee. Luncheon—Hot bouillon, stuffed tomato salad, ginger drop cakes, milk, tea. Dinnor: Broiled fish steaks with lemon butter, potatoes O'Brien, creamed green beans, .salad of mixed greens, cottage cheese and strawberry preserves with toasted crackers, milk, coffee. The Diplomat Of The White House Switchboard Miss Louise Hachmeister. ."Hacky". .at the While House switchboard, the first "Hello girl" ever to hold the pobt.

Mrs. Beatty is visiting- relatives in Somerset. Mrs. Prugh of Indiana spent a portion of the week with her brother and sister, Harry and Lyda Moorehead. E. 0. Calleuder of New Kensing- j ton spent the week-end with his niece,' Virgie Alshouse. BY JULIA BLANSHARD WASHINGTON.—Call the White House any clay. The chances are one in three that a rich, contralto voiced young woman will answer you. If she does, that is Louise Hachmeister, President Roosevelt's personal telephone girl. Louise is the first woman to, sit at the While House switchboard. She puts through all of the President's calls. When you hear her "voice with a smile," you'll have a warm focluifr of appreciation. If and when you meet her, you'll understand 'just how the President came to insist on her taking over the White House telephone service for him. ] Miss Hachmeister, affectionately 'called "Jlucky," or just plain "Hap' n'y" by. her friends, is the "salt of the earth' 'type. Calm, human, she is ;i "regular fellow" according to all the Kh'ls who worked with her at National Democratic headquarters in New York. PROTESTS BUS APPLICATION Railroads and Express Co. Against Trucks for Local Service. PITTSBURGH, .Tune 21.— INS— Protests against, the application of Joseph f!. Gill for a. certificate of • public, convenience on the ground that lils operation.? do not. come un- rler the jurisdiction of the Public Service Commission wore taken under advisement yesterday. The protest was lodged by counsel for the Pennsylvania Railroad and Railway Express Agency. Other protests against the application were filed by attorneys representing the B. & O. H. K., P. & U IS. n. H., Harmony Short Lines Motor Transportation Company, and West Penn Railway. Gill's application seeks the right to operate motor trucks as common carrier within a radius of 100 miles of Pittsburgh. On the witness stand he told of his operating trucks for transport ing produce and groceries between Pittsburgh and Butler, Indiana, Oil City. Johnstown, New Castle, B*aver Falls, Blairsville and other sections of the state for the P. H. But ler Company. Gill also testified that he Is engaged in interstate commerce traffic. She has a ready laugh, a witty tongue, always a funny story up her sleeve and yet she is the first person to whom her friends turn when they want help or sympathy. Tamed Irate Patrons "Hacky" got her telephone ,start in the New York telephone service. She's a born and bred New Yorker, has filled every post from bottom up to the head supervisor for the telephone company. She was particularly good as the supervisor who soothes irate telephone patrons. For her voice has a quality of friendly concern quite superior to many of the impersonal voices that often answer angry folks who have kicks to lodge. "It was just luck that got me the job," Miss Hackmeister told me, her merry brown eyes laughing. "The Governor (meaning the President) wanted an operator for the National Democratic Headquarters in New York in February, 1932. So the telephone company sent me. I got to know everybody, so they took me to Chicago for the convention. And then, after inauguration,' they brought me down here." Has Astonishing Memory It sounds simple enough. But Miss Hackmeister forgot to mention the day and night telephone service sne gave them at the convention. Not only did she know whom they meant when they asked for a man by his first name, but she has that kind of rare and valuable memory that made her know the state, city, private number and office number of practically every prominent Democrat in the country. She put in hundreds of calls to the coast, South, to the North and back to New York. She could rec- oznize and call men by their names when they first said, "Hello." She had just the right soothing word when lines were cut off or given bad connections. She stayed at the switchboard with only a few hours sleep, right through the convention. And on election night, it was Miss Hackmeister who took and put thru to Roosevelt all the state chairmen's calls and those of other Democratic fellow-workers and well wishers. With .all her buoyant spirit, her fine service and her thorough acquaintance with the Democratic leaders, it was - no wonder that President Roosevelt insisted that Miss Hackmeister go to Washington. Finds Her Job Exciting "We're having a grand time down here," Miss Hackmeister told me. "Three of us from the New York headquarters who all work at the White House have an apartment nearby. We live on a budget, have a maid who helps us stay on the budget, and though it's been almost as busy a time as during the One Touch of Nature Makes the Whole World Kin BRODV'S INDIANA'S LEADING DEPARTMENT STORi 20th Anniversary SUPER VALUE DAYS!
