SIX IRONWOOD DA11Y GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FRIDAY, MAY 7. If 61. The WORRY CLINIC By DR. GEORGE W. CRANE A cheery smile is one of the assets of every waitress, but there arc several other basic characteristics,, too. For waitresses are supposed to be star sales girls. But many of them are po k e r faced and thoughtless about proper hygiene. So study the tips for waitresses listed below. CASE V-483: Tony P., agert 36, operates a restaurant. j As I was dining with him recently in our Chicago Loop, a tray of dishes crashed with a bang. "There go the profits," one of the customers sang out, as ne recited that old adage. Tony winced, doubly. "Dr. Crane," he said, "many diners dislike the fact that the slate makes us levy a ret a i 1 sales tax on their lunche o n checks. "But restaurants which use chinaware, must deduct 2V» cents out of every dollar of gross income, just to make up for such breakage! Decision on Soo Tech Is Delayed LANSING (AP) — A State Board of Education vote on allowing expansion of the Sault 3te. Marie branch of Michigan Technological University has been delayed until next Wednesday. Members had split on the pro- "Por our waitresses, plus the dishwashers, are often awkward or careless. "Some restaurants are forced to replace 85 per cent of our c o f f ee cups each year and almost 50 per cent of the saucers! "Shifting to automatic dishwashers has helped cut down the breakage that used to occur in the dishpan. "But we still suffer almost as much as breakage by those who carry the dishes or clear off the tables "And that isn't all. We have trouble finding really competent waitresses. "Many of the younger girls are lazy or violators of the Golden Rule. "They fail to realize that their i own pay check depends on the i success of the restaurant. j "So they ignore our warning 'about how to handle dishes. I Dr. C r a n e, please rep eat j some of your advice that y Q u gave at our restaurant, convention." TIPS FOR WAITRESSES Waitresses, you are supposed to be sales experts, not p o k er faced order-takers! So smile, for that is the first task of every sales person or worker who "fronts" before the public for his company. ! If you are carrying food to a [table whose patrons have already ordered, at least nod to the newcomers who have just sat down nearby and say. "Hello. I'll be with you in a minute!'' For nothing alienates customers faster than to be ignored! Then, use efficiency when you PRACTICE PLAY—Carol Sunell, left, and Joan Thompson are shown practicing their play for the sixth and final- storytelling hour held Saturday at 1:30 by the J. E. Murphy High School Library cadets. Storytelling Set Saturday The sixth and final storytelling hour sponsored by the J. E. Murphy High School Libr a r y | cadets for the Hurley Public ' Library will be held Saturday at \ 1:30 p.m. I As a fitting finale to this annual spring student-communi t y service, Carol Sunell and Joan Thompson will put on a puppet show for the children.

BRANDSTADT, M.D. Q—In a recent column you mentioned thiabendazole as a drug that would kill hookworm and other parasites. Our druggist says he never heard of it. Where can I get it? A—Although this drug has i been used for several years by veterinarians to rid animals of various worms and has been used successfully In human beings, it is still considered experimental. It must await Pood and Drug Administration approval. Q — How is infection with Staph 80 acquired? Is It dangerous? How is it treated? A—The typing of different strains of staphylococci (including type 80) is an expensive laboratory procedure which is done for research purposes only. The type of staphylococcus found in an infected wound or boil has no relationship to the severity of the infection it can cause. The various strains of i staphylococcus are widely d i s- j seminated in our environment. | They are commonly found on [the skin and in the nose. ' They cause trouble only when they gain access to a cut or bruise or become imbedded In one of the pores of the skin. Any I strain of staphlyococcus is dan- I gerous in that It is likely to i cause an infection. Treatm e n t ! with penicillin and other antibi- otics has been highly successful but a boil or abscess must be opened so that drainage of the pus can be established. Q—I have been taking antihistamines since August for hives am allergic to several things. Most of the drugs I have used make me sleepy and depressed. Will they cause any permanent damage if I take them for a long time? A—All antihistamines cause the side effects you mentioned, especially in the first three days. If the drowsiness and depression persist longer than this, an antihistamine compound that contains amphetamine should be substituted for the plain antihistamine. Most persons who need this type of medicat 1 o n must take it over a long period. For this reason periodic examination by your physician is essential. Q—My doctor is giving me Ritalin. What is it for? Is it harmful? A—Methylphenidate (Ritalin) is an antidepressant. It is one of the safest drugs for this purpose but it should not be taken by anyone who has high blood pressure or epilepsy. Please send your questi o n s and comments to Wayne G. Brandstadt, M.D., in care of this paper. While Dr. Brand s t a d t cannot answer individual ters he will answer letter* 01 general interest in future columns. Carnival Rides Law Proposed LANSING (AP) — The death of three children as the result of a carnival ride breakdown in a Taylor Township shopping center last month has prompted two suburban lawmakers to introduce legislation to make such rides subject to state inspection. Democratic Reps. Daniel Cooper of Oak Park, and Albert Sheridan of Taylor Township sponsored an amendment that would require State Labor Department approval of safety devices on all such rides. Under terms of their amendment, the department also would be entitled to suspend their operation until regulations were complied with. The amendment was attached to a bill regulating hydraulic lifts, reported out of the House Labor Committee Thursday night. A House resolution calling up a special division in the Labor Department to handle such rides also are in the legislative hopper. The Mexican president and general, Santa Anna, was defeated in turn by Generals Houston, Taylor and Scott. e? g r D r^^ Sy o^a^ Sne^ ! J^a^ Se^c^ compromise proposal."

"You're only being asked to move along with three programs." The branch school is asking approval of a $26,000 to $27,000 appropriation to allow students a third year of study in medical technology, biological sciences and business administration. * * * Brennan suggested in his compromise that the board support the recommendation for only one year. In the meantime he said, a committee of educators and citizens decision. "I have mixed emotions about this," said Brennan. "I wonder what it would do to the spirit of the people there if we turned them down. We could make it clear that this is only a one-year deal and that they would have to come to us later." Dr. Lynn Bartlett, state superintendent of public instruction, said he would agree to this if some students could be aided for a small amount of money without committing the board to a four-year institution. "It should be clear that this is a very tentative program,". __.„..__„ Bartlett said. "On the basis of:syndicate Inc ) previous studies, I don't think | anybody is able to say now what kind of institution could serve this area best."

Those are to be touched —not the ends that go in the diner's mouth. If you pick up butter patties or doughnuts and sweet rolls, use tongs instead of your fingers.

Donald Thurbei of Detroit said that the Upper Peninsula has a history of exporting its trained population. If medical technicians are trained at the Soo branch, he said, it is doubtful if they will remain in the area. "The export of intelligence is better than the export of ignorance," Morton retorted. Americans, Haitians and British Guianese also drilled there. Telephone Exchange's Base Area Increased LANSING (AP) — About two square miles are being added to the base rate area of the Michigan Bell Telephone Co.

YOUR NEIGHBORS WILL! A separate Community College is good for everyone! It is not just of benefit to students, but for all of the people who live in Gogebic County. It helps students, of course, to further their education at low cost. It helps some students obtain college years they would never obtain otherwise. It benefits workers who need training and re-training for new jobs.-It upgrades the cultural side of the community, providing new ideas and leadership which otherwise would be lost to the area. It helps business by having monies spent at home rather than at some distant college. It helps all of the community because it is a complete industry in itself with a major payroll that is badly needed to bolster our economy recovery. Furthermore, a separate community college is a big attraction to new industries which would be interested in locating in the area. In short, a Community College helps EVERYONE in the area, including YOU! So help yourself by going to the polls on Monday, May 10th and voting "YES" for a community college.
