MONDAY, APRIL 21, 1952 BLYTHEVTLLE (A?xK.) COURIER NEWS HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN Would You Like to Be A Sepag? There Are Two Kinds of the Gout NEW YORK Sespag? — Are you Would you like to be a Sespag? Oh, come on, now. Please. ue a Sespag. You'll really stand out from the crowd, once you're a Scspag. What is a Scspay? Well—don't laugh— a Sespag is a member of the society for the extension of sympathy to people afflicted with" gout. Civilization has needed an organization of this kind for n lont? time. Every other disease in the medical textbooks has its true blue friends today—from halitosis to hernia, from acldosis to acute alcoholism. But gout? Ha, ha, ha, ha. ha. ha. ha. ha, ha! Nobody takes gout seriously today except those who suffer from it. Madness and measles arc respectable. Hut gout? "Oh, no, not really—gout? Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!" It is high time we had a national gout week so the buddies ot this ailment can band together and get Jnore public understanding. I feel this way because I have just spent five days Hut on my back with a throbbing foot propped on a pillow. When I returned to _work. leaning with quiet drama on a new So cane, I naturally expected to be rewarded with a little milk of human kindness. When an office pal | asked what was wrong with my foot, I mumbled bravelv: Gout strikes chiefly in the big toe, the heel and instep, or the thumb, I'm a heel and instep man myself. Personally, I have never met a gout sufferer. It's probably a tough occupational problem with hitchhikers. Many people don't realize how gout feels. H feels as If an invisible madman were trying to stuff a white hot anvil into your foot. You have an urgent desire to bite to death anybody that comes within three yards of you. K anybody in the same room even breathes heavily, you can feel it. A fly landing on your foot is like a knife thrust. Never laugh at a, man with the gout, podner, unless you want to make a lifelong enemy. But pat linn on the back—gently, gently— and tell him you understand, lie won't believe you, but he'll remember, row to go to any bank to get it. and if ever you have to bor- money—well, you won't have "Oh, nothing much. The doctor calls it rheumatoid arthritis." You (lot the (iout "That's just a fancy word gout," he said. "So you got the gout, eh? Ha, ha, ha. Boy, you must have been doing some high living. Ha. ha, ha." So he passed the word along, and the office became a den of laughing hyenas "Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. hn, ha. ha! He's got the gout. Wish I could afford it." Well, there yon are. Tell some- .bocly you got the gout, and right away he jumps to the conclusion you've been swimming in port wine and pork roasts. Youth Crime Hit by Hoover WASHINGTON (I?)- Crime is increasing in the nation, says the FBI and—"a tragedy of our times" the accent is en youth, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover yesterday | released a compilation of statistics for from police departments throughout the country. They show rate increases for 1951 of 5.2 per cent in cities and 5 per cent in rural arcns. Of persons arrested during the year, Hcover said, most were aged 23; 14.4 per cent were under 21 there was a 1.7 per cent increase among the uncier-18 group, and 41.9 per cent of 20-year-olds had previous fingerprint arrest records. The FBI estimated there were a. lottil of. 1,832,160 major crimes That is the trouble. People don't understand there are two kinds'of gout—rich mail's gout and poor man's gout. Rich man's gout is the old-fashioned kind, caused by luxurious living- and enjoyed (I -should use such a word!) by British and 19th century American industrial tycoons. This kind of gout is dying- out. Poor man's Rout is best described by the Encyclopedia Britannica as follows: "Gout may also affect persons who observe the strictest temperance in living; and whose only excesses are in the direction of overwork, either physical or intellectu- ttl." Naturally, you understand that ' what I w as the po or m an's gout. Gout also hits plumbers nnrt painters, as a result of lead poisoning. Too Much Temperance What puzzles me is why it struck me. Too much temperance? Overwork? Or could it have been the aftermath of chewing too many lead pencils in grammar school? 1951, nn increase of 92,130 over the previous year. Iran Now Ready To Produce Oil TEHRAN, Iran (/P)—Premier Mohammed Mossadegh's government says it now has enough machinery back in operation at the. former British-run Abadan refinery to produce motor oil for Iran's use. A broadcast said production has started, and within six weeks th<v petroleum-rich country no longer will need to import motor oil.
