I What's the Pitch? I We were astonished ;HK| :\ little I disapiMinted at the lack of aUc-iition I the experts paid to the political sym[ holism of President Truman's rnrlorm- f ance at the opening of the l>nscl>nll ; season in Washington. ! Last yetfr, when he niul the. lefl. (or Wallace) wing of the Democratic Party were much closer huddie thftn ! they are today, the President lossctl out the first ball with his left hand. This year he launched the season with a high, hard, right-hand heave Then, as if in a gesture of compromise, he took another hall and throw it from the port side. This left-hand throw, it was reported, was neither as fast nor as accurate. We were certain that the deep- domed political prophets would go to town with all sorts of interpretations of that highly significant itching performance. That's why, being modest and a little awed by crystal-gaxing commentators, we waited until noiv before mentioning it. Too Much of a Good Thing A speaker at a conference on medical education said 00 pur cent of medical students today ;;eek to join clinics in order to become specialists. Such a figure suggests medicine may !>o getting to much of a good thing;.and'that the present trend, while a boon to the science of healing, may turn out to bo a little hard on the patient. Specializing is wonderful. 7t lias brought mankind far along the road from the medical Dark Ages. It has conquered many killing disease:;, and it will conquer many ?nore. U has saved countless lives. It is small wonder, then, that most doctors want to specialize. A professional lifetime is not too long to spend on many single branches of medicine or surgery. This concentration leads to highly developed skills and knowledge. As skills increase so do the opportunities for a lucrative practice. Specialists tend to gravitate to the cities, where there are ample facilities for their work and where patients are likely to be more prosperous as well as more numerous. All this is fine if it doesn't go too far. But the present trend threatens serious neglect of one important field in medicine. That i s the field of general practice. Some effects of over-specia!i?alion are already apparent. Many, rtira'. communities are experiencing a shnrtage, both in quantity and quality, of nodical assistance. The young men specialize and go to the city, The rural community's health becomes the responsibility "of a few old-timers. ' • In the cities, too, it is often difficult to find a general practitioner. There are specialists galore. But. outside the crowded clinics, it is sometimes a real feat to get a general examination or treatment for a minor ailment. , The problem extends beyond the tangible realm of statistics. For there ,. is a real need, in this troubled world I of apprehensive people, for a modern | counterpart of the old-fashioned family I doctor. The general practitioner of grandfather's day may have been ill-equipped in science. His black bag may have held only primitive weapons arrainst disease. But, if he waa a good 'doctor, . he had something that' is lacking in ninny of his learned successors today. Too many specialists today offset (lie help they give by an :ibrii|:l, impersonal nittnncr. They bwojnu loo busy or too absorbed to rep.'etiiber that the patient is u complex human being as well as an inU'rusti'itf or routine oase.

There is a great tendency on the part of visitors to over-emphasize the frills of the unit, neglecting its principal function which is to give and fruit juice n day will satisfy the basic needs of the patient. When appetite returns, foods rich In carlxmydmtc and protein and low in fat are tolerated best. Alter recovery, normal diet can he eaten for Iwo lo four weeks before the patient goes back to work. Cause of epidemic hepatitis is strongly suspected. Upsets of stomach and intestine frequently precede attack of jaundice which suggest that the liver is secondarily infected. In some cases, the liver changes are so slight thai jaundice does not develop. NO KNOWN BRUO CURB AK I here arc many kinds of jaundice and as the treatment varies, an exact diagnosis is important. Hcpniiti.s lends lo develop in epidemics, and at one time. it was known as acute caiarrhal jaundice. | Swollen liver blocks Ihe passage of bile and makes the patient sick, | oltcn with indication of trouble in the nervous system, such as being restless or delirious. At the height of the jaundice, the skin is bright yellow or yellowish-brown in color. When the bile starts to come through, the skin slowly returns to its natural color. Epidemic hepatitis is a sclf-lim- itcd disease which may weaken thousands of persons when outbreaks occur. Although there is no known drug which will cure epidemic hepatitis, protection of the liver by diet and rest, aid in recovery. , QUESTION: My son has never shed crying.

Crawford Green, superinte..*,, of city schools, discussed the city erdny at a' school situation of "And I want the people to know," he continued (without averting his gaze) "that the Democratic party had nothing whatever to do with this bill." The Republican; went too far, he said. They even slit the appro- prialions for Ihe fisheries service in New England. Did not they real- i/e thai most New Flhyland fishermen also were Republicans? He hadn't closed his mouth before Rep. Charles A. Halleck of 7,nd.. the curly-haired Republican chief, was on his feet, pulling at his pole grey pants with one hand and reaching for the microphone with Ihc olher. "I hope Ihe newspapers print what the gentleman from Massachusetts just said, "he roared in my direclion. "It will prove thai Hie Republicans are trying to cut the costs of government and the Democrats arc resisting stubbornly against Ihis economy the people want." Tlie opposing sachems sat down, took their eyes off me and glared at each other, while the house went to work with the celebrated meal axe on President Truman's Interior Department budget. The President asked for $295.420.420 to lake care of Indians, build dnms, invesligale seals, operate the Alaskan railroad, and do other things too numerous to mention here.
