Bronchiectasis helped by postural drainage Dew Dr. Donohue: I have had a bad cough for quite some time. This has been diagnosed as bronchiectasis. I am taking an antibiotic for it. I am very short of breath and am tired most of the time. Is there something more I could do for this? — E.S. Bronchiectasis (bronk-ee-EK-tuh-sis) is a condition in which the air tubes to the lungs have lost their ability to contract. While people often use "plumbing" analogies to describe body parts, the body is not comparable to a machine. And even though we call air passages "tubes," they are so only in a most general sense. They are able to enlarge and constrict because they have muscular, elastic tissue in their walls. They are not rigid pipes. And when their walls lose elasticity, problems occur. Continuing dilation of the walls leads to continuing sputum production and chronic cough. As iMhat were not bad enough, the situation sets up conditions for lung infections, since organisms thrive in such moist environments. So, if you have been told you have bronchiectasis, this is where you are at the moment. The antibiotics are to prevent and treat the infections. They are usually continued until the sputum production is more normal and there is no yellowishness to it. You should speak to your doctor about postural drainage therapy. This involves getting the upper body in a position that assists removal of sputum from the bronchial tubes. I won't try to describe such positions because I think you would be better served by an actual demonstration from a therapist or your doctor. When you can periodically remove the sputum that is pooling in your airways you will be able to breathe more easily. * * * Dear Dr. Donohue: Will you discuss manic-depression? My doctor said that manic-depression is only a postulated theory. In other words, a psychological problem. Is that true? Or is it a physical one? Please tell me all you can about it. — Mrs. C.C. There are so many theories about various psychological illnesses that I could write from now to next Christinas about manic-depression and have enough left over to last until the Fourth of July. So what I'll give you is the shortest dissertation on manic-depression imaginable and hope it helps. Manic-depression is a cycle of despondent feelings and inactivity alternating with periods of elation and frenzied activity. Some feel there is a strong hereditary factor. Some feel it dr. donohue to your good health has to do with early upbringing. Others think there is a chemical imbalance of certain brain substances. There are many medicines for treatment. Antidepressants are used in the despondent phase of the cycle; lithium is used in the manic phase. And, of course, psychiatry is important in the overall treatment of the manic-depressive. * -tr -tr Dear Dr. Donohue: I have chronic prostatitis and have had it for years. Some time ago, arthritis developed in my knees real bad. I have been told that chronic prostatitis will cause arthritis. Could this be true? - C.G. Prostate gland infection (prostatitis) can linger and may be difficult to eradicate completely. At times, long courses of antibiotics are needed. Your case is not unusual. Now to your question. There are two germs — Chlamydia and Mycoplasma — that are possible causes of prostate infection. Those germs have also been suspected of causing a special kind of arthritis, called "infectious arthritis." Is that what you are referring to? Otherwise I am not aware of any connection between a prostate infection and the other kinds of arthritis — rheumatoid and osteo. Those are the two most common kinds. Infectious arthritis symptoms subside as the infection is brought under control. Emphysema can be controlled. To learn how to live with this serious lung problem write to Dr. Donohue for a copy of his new booklet, "EmphysemaBronchitis: the Twin Problems." Write to Box 19620, Irvine, Calif. 92714, sending a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 50 cents. Dr. Donohue welcomes reader mail but regrets that, due to the tremendous volume received daily, he is unable to answer individual letters. Readers' questions are incorporated in his column whenever possible. YOUR THANKSG TREATS DEL M V1NG )NTE Get 10<f off on any can of DEL MONTE® Pineapple: Sliced, Chunks, Crushed, or Tidbits.

(UPI) - Movie buffs recall Lauren Bacall singing "How Little We Know" in the Humphrey Bogart classic, "To Have and Have Not." But how many people know Miss Bacall's voice in the final version of the film was dubbed by a 14-year-old male named Andy Williams? Steve Tamerius is one who remembers that and a lot of other little-known facts. But then he should — he's president of the Lincoln-based United States Trivia Association. Tamerius, Tom Bowen and Ron Hicks, all local businessmen, organized USTA three years ago because "there was no unifying force in the trivia world; there was no national association or publication," Tamerius said. "Trivia, we think, ia American folklore to the nth degree," he said. The group has tried to emphasize that belief, largely through the publication of a 15-page monthly "Trivia Unlimited" magazine, which provides readers with tidbits about a wide range of topics. Bowen provides sports knowledge for the magazine, and his offerings often tantalize the true connoisseur. He relishes telling that the great Babe Ruth was the New York Yankees' second choice to play right field, and only got the Job when a promising young ballplayer broke his leg. You can see a gleam in Bowen's eye when he tells you the young ballplayer, having failed to make the Yankee club, returned to Chicago arid convinced the Staley Starch Co. to sponsor a football team. "Papa Bear" George Halas's career was set. The magazine also boasts its annual selection to the Trivia Hall of Fame. Robert Ripley of "Believe It or Not" fame was the first selection, and this year's pick was Art Fleming, longtime host of "Jeopardy," one of the most popular game shows in television history. Trivia Unlimited has fans worldwide and USTA now boasts "thousands and thousands" of subscribers in all 50 states and all English-speaking countries. To aid in compiling trivia for the magazine, editors are constantly gleaning facts from old movies, TV shows, newspapers, documents and records. Tamerius said he has about 30,000 index cards, stored in various parts of his home, recording trivia he gains while watching television. The USTA founders say they also frequently receive phone calls from people across the country trying to settle bets, answer questions or simply satisfy their curiosity. "The other night the phone rang at 11 o'clock," Tamerius recalls. "A little kid said, 'Whose dog was Blondie,' and I said 'Adolph Hitler's.' He said 'thanks' and hung up."
