For inittnce, I had a patient Who, each summer, used to suffer greatly with abdominal pain which, curiously, came before luncheon and supper, and woke him about 1 a.m. It sounded like the pain of ulcer, but repeated X-ray studies showed no ulcer. The patient became so thin that the X-ray man could see his stomach and bowel as if they were out on the surface of his body, and there just was no disease visible in the man's dlges live tract I said, "Go home and do some detective work; watch particularly the foods such as fruits which you eat in the summer." Two years later the man dropped in to say that he had quickly found that if he ate can taloupe only 2 or 3 times i week, he was comfortable enough, but if he ate it once or twice every day, as he had loved to do, he soon was in much pain. The summer after he discovered this, he ate but little cantaloupe, and for the first time in years he had no trouble. A" lovely woman of 60 came in with • trig pitch of scaly eczema all over her left hand. She had none on the right hand, hut she Mid that occasionally she got some on the end of her nose. She had been skin-tested and dieted to no avail. So many foods had been taken from her that she was down to skin and bones, 1 laid, "No; If your trouble was due to food, it should be on both handi. Go back home and watch and see x if you can catch yourself often putting your left hand into some irritant which your right hand does not touch." In « weeks she was back without her eczema, to tell me that she loved primroses and had her windows full of them. Every morning, with the watering-can in her right hand, she would pick dead leaves off the plants with her left hand. When a plant was in bloom and she smelted the flower, her nose swelled up. Many a time a woman could quickly find the cause of an "eczema" by figuring back and remembering that the trouble came about the time she got some new nail polish, or new facial cream, or a new brassiere made of nylon, or a new girdle made with some new synthetic rubber, or the case of I a new watch which contained some nickel or other chemical to which she was sensitive. Many an allergic patient, by taking thought, could find the cause of his trouble and then could cure himself. TELL ME WHY! A. UOKUM Where Does Dust Come From? •nd torn*.

Dust is normally lifted by the wind from the place where it originated and is carried until it settles because of gravity when conditions are calm, or rain brings it down to the ground. Since dust consists of tiny particles of solid matter, it can come from a wide variety of sources. The main sources of dust are soil, ocean spray, vol- certain cities was measured, and here are the amazing figures. Detroit, 72 tons; New York City, 68 tons; Chicago, 71 tons; Pittsburgh, 46 tons; Cincinnati, 34 tons; and Los Angeles, 33 tons. And where heavy industry was concentrated, as much as 200 tons of dust per square mile per month has been measured. 'Because of controls by the cities, these figures may now be much less. But since industrial dust to health, problem in many areas. FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Visitor: What a glorious painting!

You're sit- of substances in homes and in Industry, and even the exhaust from automobiles. A minor part of the dust in the air consists of parts of plants, pollen, and bacteria. You would never imagine that ocean spray creates dust, but after the spray water has evaporated, salt dust remains in the air. Did you know that in one year alone ocean spray puts about 2 million tons of salt dust into the air! In settled areas, and especially in cities, the various processes used in burning materials are an important source of dust. Industrial combustion, smelting operations, mining, construction, roadbuilding activities, automobile traffic and incinerators send huge quantities of dust into the air. In fact, many cities have had to pass laws to regulate industries and have them install special devices to remove dust from their exhausts. How much dust is in the air? It has been estimated that over the United States about 43 mil lion tons of dust settles in one year. About 12 million tons of this is caused by human activities.

Last evening my husband's foreman and his wife dropped in on us unexpectedly. We were not prepared for company. When I served some soft drinks, the man hinted that he wanted something "stronger." We didn't have anything in the house, so my husband took him to the corner bar and left me with the wife. She talked bad about everybody at the plant. I didn't even know half the people she gossiped about. She told me I ought to "do something" with my hair, which hurt my feelings because my hair is very thin and there's not much I can do with It. Then she asked he when I waxed my floors last and I told her I had waxed them that morning. She said, "They look terrible. You should try my brand." The men were gone 3 hours. When they came back this couple stayed until 1:30 a.m., although I said several times my husband had to get up at 6 a.m. for work. Do you think it was right of my husband to have left me there all evening with that woman? What if they drop in again? I don't care to associate with her. My head still aches from last night.

Boyleing The News Firing Comic Is Bad Luck NEW YORK (AP) - Tony Randal], whose comic talents won him film stardom, is some* thing of an authority in three fields — opera, Italian renaissance painting, and the art of losing jobs. In the last-named field Tony feels he is probably unique. "So far as I know," he said, "I'm the only performer who has been fired in every medium — twice in radio, once in televi- iion, once in the theater, and once in films." Tony never let the dismissals break his spirit. ""It's an awful thing to go through," he remarked, "but thought the other fellow was wrong in each case. "You have to feel that way, ] suppose, but there is a possibili ty I was right. Anyway, none of the shows I was fired from was success. Disaster followed every time, and I hope the moral is clear: Don't fire Tony Ran dall." Right now there aren't many people standing in line trying to get Tony off the payroll. Instead they're bidding for his services The slender, dark-haired com edian recently completed t satire on suburbia in which for the third time he costarred with Rock Hudson and Doris Day. Two earlier films by the trium- virate were hits. Tony, who comes from Tuba, Okla., spent a year at Northwestern University before coming to Broadway. He appeared with such notable performers as Ethel Barrymore, Katherine Cornell and Paul Muni before going on to television and then the films. But he feels his most educational experience in show business was the time he spent in Catskill summer resorts. "I got $10 a week and room and board," he said. "I slept in a bunk under a water tower, and the tower didn't stop leak- Ing all summer. "But for variety there was nothing like it. 'Every night in the week we'd put on a new show — everything from musicals to Shakespeare. It taught you self-confidence if nothing else. 'I did so well that at the end of the summer the manager invited me back for next year— at a $5 cut in salary. Tony is amiable and dry-witted, but he believes people should hold strong opinions and have the.courage to express them. Asked to express his own dislikes, he smiled and said: 'I despise rock 'n' roll music, ing Little League baseball." DAILY ACROSS 1. Spill, while handling 5. Merganser 9. Nuclei of a starch 10.
