The red blood cells contain oxygen and hemoglobin, both of which are necessary to maintain health and life. On« kind 6f anemia it known as pTitnhrjr or pernicious anemia. The cause of this donditlor, is complicated but now it can be successfully treated in almdst all cases. With Ihe *xc«p»Iort of pernicious anemia, the problem .boils down to finding out what has caused the reduction in red blood cells or hemoglobin. One of the most simple and yet frequent causes is bleeding from somewhere in the body. If a per- s6n loses more blood than, the system eafri replace, anemia develops. If the bleeding is sudden Such as from a ctit, the difficulty can be remedied promtly by stopping the hemorrhage and giving a blood trahsfusian.

But, he said, he couldn't whistle loud enough to attract them. The next day there wait delivered to Acheson's office a silver- plated whistle from Barkley with the message ..hat here r was the solution to his cab-calling dilemma. Acheson uses it all the time.

SPEAKING.IN BEHALF of the reserve bill the 'other day. Rep. John M. Robsfon, Jr., (ft* Ky) brought the House to rare, rapt attention with the statement: .

On weekends when a member feels the urge to work in the garden, tackle a do-it-yourself project, or is pressured by the little lady to do same, he rushes to the 'phone and calls for help. One or more members then hurry over to the first man's house, and they have drinks and discuss the matter at length. This lasts until the urge or ability to work is gone, or until it's too dark outside to start.

When this so-called secondary anemia is severe it may be necessary to give transfusions. Another kind of anemia is fairly frequent 'in women between 30 and 50 years of age. The c'ause of this anemia is a deficiency of iron probably resulting from defective :liet and poor absorption due to disturbances' of Ihe stomach' and intestines. This jauses a feeling of weakness, .hortness of breath, nervous disturbances, dry. hair, sore tongue and paleness. Fortunately, once it has been identified, it can be successfully treated by giving iron preparations. Anemia may result from 'the failure of the organs which make the blood to manufacture adequate quantities.

If we can't provide some skilled friend's support in her distress, we've lost her. We fail her emotional emergency—and our one chance to earn her trust of help. Crisis support is the secret of the magnificent success of Alcoholics Anonymous. You can take your alcoholic to temperance lectures every night. You ca.n "discuss" his problem with him endlessly. You can employ psychiatrists who can tell him why he drinks—and mo- rtilizers to tell why he shouldn't. He will continue to drink. Then he'll ''hit the bottom" of crsis.
