A Walking Trash Receptacle. The medical history of menial afflictions before the "age of enlightenment" reveals some utterly fantastic stories. Apparently there was little to be done for insane manias beyond physical restraint, and often adequate restraint became quite impossible over any prolonged period of time. So the history pages abound with self-mutilation. A case report from the Asylum for Insane Criminals of Auburn, N.Y., is remarkable from the standpoint of survival, if nothing else. The victim was first admitted in October, 1872, on a pretense of spitting blood—perhaps one of the early cases of "mun- chausen disease" described previously in these columns. Thre' years later she was re -admitted, having cut her left wrist and hand. Three weeks afterward s h e attacked her arms again, making huge gashes just 1 below the elbows, involving skin, fascia and many muscle structures. Six weeks later, the wounds having healed, she re-did the job again. This time, she developed a streptococcus infection on one side, the swelling of which extended up into the throat and required a tracheotomy to save her life. Five weeks after recovery, she again slashed her arms The Doctors Answer ia the same places. The fourth procedure was d o n e a few months later, again slicing into the same very thick scars on the arms. On that occasion, she began inserting pieces of glass into the wound. Six months afterward, extending the wounds to a length of seven inches, she inserted 30 pieces of glass, several splinters and some shoe nails. In June of 1877, the final admission was recorded. After a gargantuan slashing episode, she was seen in the hospital and 94 pieces of glass, 34 splinters, two tacks, five shoe nails, one pin and one needle removed from the wounds. It was noted that "other articles which had been lost" were recovered; making a total of 150 pieces of merchandise removed from the arm tissues. Her final outcome is n o t recorded. But one must speculate on the monetary advantages to her mortician, were he to have arranged some mutual understanding with a nearby junk dealer! New Findings about Cigarette Smoke One of the body's defense against foreign material introduced accidentally into the tissues, is an army of cells called "macrophages". One function of these cells is to surround, liquefy and destroy stuff that finds its way into the outer limits of the lung structure: the small air sacs called "alveoli". Macrophages have been observed to look "sick" in sections of lung from smokers, and research from the University of Vermont has now Dance Band Dance to the music of the KEITH WOOLERY BAND featuring Singer Al Lorenzo from Hawaii Saturday, Oct. 2 — 9:30 to 12:30 p.m. $1.50 per person LABOR TEMPLE CLUB ROOM identified the agent responsible. It is "acrolein", which has been shown to poison the enzyme systems needed for proper function of the macrophages. Since acrolein is an industrial chemical, standards have been established for acceptable air levels in industrial plants. Cigarette smoke contains amounts more than 1500 times greater than the established acceptable maximum. Medicus has referred before to the "five hundred products" that are produced by tobacco combustion. Acrolein is only one of them, and obviously has deleterious (that means "bad") effects on the body. Such studies as this add much weight to the arguments for abolition of this weed that is so involved in extensive "self-pollution". (Tho Reno County Medical Society welcomes questions from readers.

PLATTE CITY, Mo. Can the old-fashioned store survive in an age of mod merchandising? Olin England, 78-year-old operator of the "Bartlett Merc. Co." in this town on the northwestern edge of Kansas City, seems to think so. At first glance, ths store, which England operates for owner Merle Bartlee, presents the look of a typical country retail establishment. The walls are lined with high-stacked shelves and the floors are wooden and worn, covered in spots with linoleum. But just about where the overalls should be, one finds instead wide ties, flowered shirts and striped jeans. Touch Came Gradually England, who has been in the dry goods business since World War I, says the modern touch came gradually, beginning about five years ago when Bartlett acquired the place. "Before there was a lot of bankrupt stock brought in and the sizing wasn't too good," England says. But that's all in the past. Ford County Seeks Top Conservationist DODGE CITY - Ford County has launched its search for the 1971 Soil Conservation Award winner. Nominations of outstanding conservation farmers in the! this county are to be made at the county's Agricultural Extension Council office in October. To Assist President LINDSBORG - Milo R. Miller of Lindsborg has been appointed administrative assistant to the president at Bethany College, according to an announcement by president Arvin Hahn. Effective immediately, the new position will be in addition to Miller's duties as director of church relations — a part-time position he has held since Oct. 1, 1970. (AP) — "I don't buy anything that's general|not in fashion," he says. "If you don't buy mod clothes today, you don't buy clothes." Men's clothing dominates in the crowded competition for a shopper's attention. England reports he buys no women 's garments, but adds, "I sell half those knit shirts to girls. They buy half the jeans, too." It's There Somewhere With all the clothing, it doesn't seem there'd be room for much else, but England points out the snack foods, linen and liquor, and transmits the idea that if you're in the market for something you don't see, chances are he can find it beneath a counter somewhere. How, operating in this fashion, can he compete with the retailing giants and their enormous stock? Well, England saves more than a little on overhead by doing all the buying, selling, sweeping, washing and gift wrapping himself, manning the store alone nine hours a clay, six days a week. When the need arises, he can also write an advertising flyer and even set the type for it. If you're looking for conversation, he can quote you obscure baseball statistics as long as you're willing. A Simple Theory But with all that, his theory of doing business is a simple one. "Little stores scattered through the country don't carry much merchandise. It doesn't take long for people to find out what you have. "In a big store you have to have that markup. We don 't have that overhead and we don 't have to make so much ACROSS 1. Astronaut's suit 4.
