TIMES, Fri., Aug. 13, 1971 9-F Parasite Is Widespread By DR. T. R. VAN DELLEN © Chlcoao Tributu - Schistosomiasis is the greatest unconquered parasitic disease afflicting man and animals today. There are said to be 100 million victims. The disease is caused by tiny worms (blood flukes) that live in. small snails. The culprits are particularly prevalent in the waters = of the Far and Middle. East, Africa, eastern South America, and the Caribbean, Snails release the young worms which are absorbed through the skin of humans as they bathe r wash clothes, swim, or" wade ui the infested lakes or rivers." Three species of schisto- somes infect man. Once Inside, . t h e worms work their way into the bloodstream where they mature. Certain species set up housekeeping in the walls of the intestine. The eggs deposited in the intestinal tract escape via the stool. To repeat the cycle, these eggs must reach water and find a snail host. Other specie's go to the wall of the urinary bladder and some of the eggs escape via the urine. Weeks may elapse between the time the worms invade the walls of the intestine and bladder and the egg laying period. The worms may cause a rash where they burrow .through the skin. During their sojourn in the capillaries, they may. cause fever, toxicity, abdominal distress or urinary symptoms. E n s u i n g disability stems from the eggs that do not escape in the urine and stool. A single worm can deposit eggs in vital organs for up to 20 .years and progressively destroy tissues of the bladder, pelvic structures including the prostate and vagina, intestinal tract, liver, kidneys and lungs. The eggs trapped in the tissues are irritating and produce multiple inflammatory lesions, such as abscesses fol- lowed by scar tissue. A variety of complaints ensue including abdominal tenderness, loss of appetite, aching, dysentery,weight loss, painful urination, frequency and bloody urine. S e v e r a l antimony compounds are used to kill, the worms. The world-wide battle a g a i ri s t schistosomiasis is three-pronged: Treatment of the infected persons, improved sanitation, and snail control. Yorty To Seek Facts On Tour of Vietnam SAIGON ffl _ Mayor Ssm Yorty of Los Angeles arrived today for a three-day visit in Vietnam and accused some U.S. congressmen,of "appalling ignorance" about Vietnam. Yorty said he wanted to examine the U.S. troop withdrawal program, Vietnamiza- tion, drug abuse among Gls and prospects in Cambodia. "The only way you can find out what is going on here is to come yourself," he said. "We have a lot of senators and.con- gressmen who've never been here or only visited briefly. "Their ignorance is appalling. They tell the American people what they think they want to hear, not the truth. They have made it very diffi- cult for our presidents. They made it difficult for Kennedy, they made it difficult for Johnson and they're making it difficult for Nixon." Yorty did not name any names. But he added he was "very much against trying to force the President to tell the Communists the date he will withdraw, this is playing right into their hands." This is Yorty's sixth visit to Vietnam since 1965. -He was met at Tan Son Nhut' airport by Mayor Do Kien Nhieu, George Jacobson, acting chief of the U.S. pacification program, and John Paul Vann, the senior American adviser in the central highlands. S. W. writes: I've always longed to ride a bicycle. Now that I have plenty of free time to learn, my family is trying to discourage me. Do you consider a woman of 63 ,too old to ride? My family's objection is that I might fall and hurt myself. -Please advise. Reply: You are not too old to ride but you may be too old to. learn : especially since we anticipate a number of falls. A broken hip or shoulder may have serious repercussions. Why not get an adult three- wheeler? I. J, writes: My bad breath problem has been relieved since I've given up milk. Will it be necessary to add some- thing to the meals to make up for .what I was getting in the milk? · Reply: No, provided you eat a variety of foods. Many foods, such as p u d d i n g s , creamed soups and certain bakery items contain milk. Mrs. S. W. writes: Does s. person with ulcer have lots of gas? Reply: Flatulence is not a .common complaint unless the ulcer patient is constipated or eating foods that increase fermentation. To the limit 01 available space, questions pertaining to the prevention o.' disease will be answered. Letters should be addressed to Dr. Van Dellen, In care of The Caller-Times, Corpus Christ!.

Nixon Is Asked To Sway British BOSTON W --'The Massac h u s e t t s Senate yesterday passed a resolution urging President Nixon to "use the full weight and power of his office to implore" the British government to remove its troops from Northern Ireland. "There, will, never he peace as long as they are there," said Sen. William M. Bulger, D-Boston, sponsor of the resolution. LOU VAIN, Belgium WV -Roman Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox churchmen joined yesterday in a precedent-setting plea for "visible unity In one faith" for the world's Christians. The statement climaxed a session of the Faith and Order Commission of the -World 'Council of Churches. Catholic representatives sat as commission members for the first time -- with Vatican approval -- though the Catholic Church is not among the council's 252 members. T-h e Catholic representatives' presence with papal blessing was regarded as a broad step forward in the council's ecumenical movement -- the drawing together of different faiths around common Christian beliefs. A spokesman said only a few of. the 135 members indicated dissent from the state- ment. AU of them were Protestants. The statement said the council's first function and purpose was;. ""To call the churches to the goal of visible unity in one faith and in one eucharistlc fellowship, expressed in worship and in common life in Christ and to advance toward that unity in order that the world may believe." The statement still needs the approval of,the council's executive committee, which meets in Sofia, B u 1 g a r i a, next month, and of the executive , committee, which meets in ·Utrecht, Holland, a year from now. The meeting marked out issues for further exploration such as racism, political power and other worldly subjects. A spokesman said this departed from past practice, when emphasis was more on such doctrinal matters as baptism.
