tHl STUNOf WOtt '.. r000.. (D ALPINE 4 9 IMPORTING CO SWKCHBSE 0 0 o i: FOCUS ON HEALTH Hayf ever, Ulcers In Medical News By The Associated Press Hayfever complications, a rising toll of stomach ulcers, and cautions against quack treatments of arthritis figure in the medical news: Hayfever Hazards One-third of .hayfever sufferers run risk of becoming asthmatics, cautions Dr. James A. McLean, allergist at the University of Michigan Medical Center. The itchy nose, bleary eyes and other symptoms can be relieved by taking antihistamines or running away from pollen-laden regions. But he advises taking "shots" against the guilty pollens, to prevent sensitivity from increasing and perhaps later making the person a set-up for asthma. The Sunset Years Older people tend to feel better about themselves than is commonly supposed. One general Idea is that they are not well adjusted. But from a small study, psychologist Kenneth L. Bloom says that apparently "older persons perceive themselves in a relatively positive-manner, and are able to look toward the future with a minimum of fear and apprehension." Dr. Bloom, with the Veterans Administration Hospital, Brooklyn, N.Y., described the study to the American Psychological Assn. Quack "Cures" Victims of arthritis are wasting about $250 million a year on misleading or quack cures and devices, declares the Arthritis and Rheumatism FoundationNew York. There's no true cure yet, but careful and timely treatment "can prevent severe crippling in most cases," it says in a free booklet, "Arthritis Quackery Today." Warning against those who offer any "sure cure" or "secret formula," it says the effective drug in many high-priced and highly-touted products is merely aspirin, which can be bought far more cheaply as plain aspirin. It says some testimonials are lies, while others are sincere tributes from persons suffering from a disease which normally has its ups-and-downs anyhow. Ulcers Rising In 1935-36f only about 3 of every 1,000 Americans had an ulcer. But a 1957-59 survey found 14 of every 1,000 a tolal of nearly 2,500,000 with ulcers. While diagnosis has improved, nevertheless there seenis to have been a real and-four-fold increase in stomach and duodenal ulcers, says, the Health Insurance Institute, New York. Nearly three times more men thaii women develop ulcers. Space Age Medicine Electronics instruments check out and report trouble in key operations of fabulously complex intercontinental rocket missiles, j Similar devices can be designed to check out and report automatically on functions of practically any part of the human body, says Dr. Charles B. Jolliffe, vice president and technical director of Radio Corporation of America.-- v- - --- -- -.: - Such principles will first be used to check closely on men going into space, but "they aic cuuauv avaiiauxc iui a vj u tine use in a hospital," or in physical exams someday. Ballet and Feet-Ballet lessons, if not properly supervised, may result in partial or total disability of the feet of young children, says Dr. Edward Meldman, Milwaukee foot specialist. He says ballet instructors and foot doctors agree children shouldn't be placed on point rising on the tips of their toes- until 10 or 12 years of age, "and then only if they plan to con- tinue with ballet as a profes sion." Diagnostic X-Rays When X-rays must be taken of a pregnant woman,- radiation exposure to mother and unborn child can be reduced up to about 90 per cent of normal by taking the picture from a distance of 8 to 12 feet, rather than the usual 3 feet. Such films are often useful in helping obsetricians prepare for delivery of the child. With proper equipment, the X-rays can be taken at greater and safer distances, Drs. Philip Shtasel and Melvin G. Jaspan of .Philadelphia write in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Assn. Church Appoints New Minister ANTIOCH, Sept. 8 The new pastor of Antioch's First Baptist Church is the Rev.
