'" Food Allergy Can Cause Poor Marks , , . . ' AP N'ewsfeatures- •• Baby doctors-have come up with- a new explanation for junior's poor grades .In school. They say he may be allergic to eggs or other foods. Allergies can cause behavior problems like obstinacy or poor school performance, they say. Finding the guilty food, and taking junior of! it, •' often cures the trouble.-! ; Such doctors as Susan Dees of •Durham, N. C., Arthur Hoersch of. Cleveland, Ohio.:and Jerome Glaser ; of the Rochester -University School ' of Medicine, at a' recent meeting of > the American Academy of Pediatrics •'in Atlantic iCty, -were agreed that -'some children may come down with 'tstha mor the. hives; simply'from .smelling foods .such -as potatoes or "•' 'icrambled eggs being prepared by their mothers in the kitchen. •- -Food allergies ; can .-appear even •in the first .week or two of a -baby's life. They sometimes cause' hives, colic, vomiting, and later .skin 'dis- eises as exzema, baby doctors say. In children, egg is the. most com- 'mon food cause of allergy, with .milk probably next,' followed by wheat. ..If mother will stop giving junior ..the food for a time, s'ays Dr. Glaser, the child later in, life often is able '' to eat Jt again .without getting a reaction, he'says. .It is 'estimated, he "says, that 10 to 20 per cent .of the population is sensitive to food at one time or another. Serious trouble ..may result if the trouble is .not diagnosed. Dr. Bret Ratner, of the New York University College- of Medicine, says that a fingernail test; and X-rays can often help children overcome allergies. These'tests spot physical troubles that weaken the child's resistance to the allergy chain-reaction; he says.- Overcoming these troubles helps junior to. resist attacks. 'Of course.'the main defense still is to avoid the offending foods, he says. . Dr.. Ratner feels that if allergic children are, treated early, there will be fewer cases of allergies in adults. The earlier treatment is started, the easier, relief can he obtained. B. &-0. Railroad Income Increases In 'November Reflecting an' increase in: freight rates,, revenue 'of the B. and- P.

NEW YORK—It was that kind ''of a day.: On the subway down, a com- slete stranger pushed-'his face into mine, and snarled, "If I had yer dough I'd trow mine. away." .And ne passed on.
