VAN DELLEN ".;"··""··©,'Chleogd Tribune -Between 5 and 10 per cent of our. adult population has gallbladder disease.. Stones, and Infection,. the most common abnormalities, are considered together because one seldom develops -without the other. The ensuing''distress varies considerably :anxl many people live to a ripe old age without knowing that their gallbladder was filled with stones. - An acute infection of the organ is perhaps the most painful/' This is v true :espeeially when the- opening is also blocked by a small stone trying to escape. When the gallbladder is inflamed and distended, distress usually is located in, the right upper .quadrant .of the .abdomen. Now and then the pain radiates to the midback area of the chest. - During the acute inflammatory state, fever chills, nau- ' sea, vomiting, belching, gas ; and heartburn ensue. The distress., may be "described as a sensation .of fullness. At the opposite extreme is the excru- c i a t i n-g, breathtaking colic that develops when the gallbladder or .biliary tract contracts to push away r a n obstructing rock. Surgery is curative but opinions differ regarding the best time to operate. Each case must he judged on its merit. The procedure may be delayed when the victim is .obese, elderly, pregnant or has uncontrolled"diabetes' or a heart disorder. Medical treatment is advised even though surgery is postponed. Drugs that control infection, relieve . pain and relax the bile ducts are given as needed. A low' residue, fat-free bland diet also is helpful. .Fried, greasy, oily, spicy foods are taboo. Immediate surgery may be recommended for the first attack provided symptoms have not lasted more than 72 hours. In these circumstances; there are no adhesions from, previous attacks and the area is not congested. : . ; M.

Morton suggested desalinization of Southwest water last night as a .means of saving the area's rivers and lakes from premature death. Morton made the statements at a news conference before embarking on a tour of the Four Comers area and pr,Qr posed coalfired power plants · this morning. Citing the increasing salinity of rivers gaining the, - immense; arid watershed o f r the Western states, -Morton said, "If we don't do something about it, these dams are going to outlive their usefulness before their time." He specifically pointed out the salinity of the turbulent Colorado River, saying, "The day will come when the president of Mexico is going to walk into the White House and say 'this stuff you're sending me is no longer water.'

He said the situation demanded initiation of a new nationwide water policy to butr line uses and insure that the maximum benefits are derived from western waters. However; Morton said the water policy would be senseless unless a land use policy is implemented first so planners could determine what demands would be made upon limited water supplies.

Reply: Adrenal glands secrete adrenalin, which makes the individual more alert and, ready to fight. There is an.old saying that a cat arches his back when attacked to squeeze the adrenal gland in order;to, obtain more adrenalin. In this- respect, the glands play a^ole in the person's courage. P'ur- thermore, a well-balanced, normal glandular system imparts a feeling of well-being. S. F. writes: What is cystic fibrosis?

"Our position toward Cuba i s completely unchanged," said Robert Hurwiteh, a deputy secretary of state for inter-American affairs. "Cuba continues to represent a threat to the peace and security of the hemisphere," he said. "As long as it remains so, our position will remain tlie same." Hurwitch appeared on the television program, "Florida : Forum." · Later he said he expects the Cuban refugee airlift to resume today as the Fidel Castro, government indicated it would. Castro suspended it for a, week. .Hurwitch said the administration will continue to support the airlift.

J. Chamberlain, president of the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen. "When you're at the bottom of the totem pole and something like this comes along, it makes you feel even worse." Congress ordered the signalmen back to work until Oct. 1 after a two-day strike last May,; · · · · . . . . - . . . . - the 13,000-member union wants a 54-per cent pay increase over three years. An average 13.5-per cent pay increase was approved by Congress in May when the strike was barred. Chamberlain said the President's order "hasn't changed the union's position a bit." .A spokesman for the AFL- C10 pointed out that Nixon's statement did not meet the conditions that the labor federation's executive c o u n c i l and President George Meany have set for their support. Meany and Teamsters Union President Frank E. Fitzsimmons have said for years that they would support wage-price controls only if there were equal controls over all wages, salaries, bonuses, dividends, profits and other forms of income. Interest rates and profits are not covered by President Nixon's order. : In other industries, affected: --Aerospace: The .

Willard bought the services of Mayor and Mrs. Belk with a $530 bi'd Saturday at a televised auction. The benefit, sponsored by station WBTV, raised more than $100,000 for Boys Town in Mecklenburg County. Willard said the mayor would greet callers and Mrs. Belk would help out wit3i drinks, hats and coats. He said the date for the event hasn't been set. Douglas Corp. They are seeking "substantial" wage -increases, catchup cost-of-living increases and an unlimited future cost-oHivuig clause. --Mining: The United Mine Workers' contract with the Bituminous Coal Operators' Association expires Sept. 30. The union wants industry to increase wages from an average of |37 a day to $50 daily and to double the 40-cent-per- ton coal "royalty" it pays into the union's welfare and retirement fund. --Shipping: The Longshoremen's Union negotiators were to meet this week to set a date for resumption of talks with the Pacific Maritime Association in an effort to end the 47-day walkout.
