By May 16, about 73 per cent of the corn crop was planted, compared with 63 per cent on the same date last year and a normal progress of 55 per cent, the department said Tuesday in a weekly weather review. Farmers in Northern states had planted 92 per cent of their spring wheat against 33 per cent on May 16, 1975, and a normal pace of 61 per cent, the report said. Planting "was virtually complete" in South Dakota and Minnesota, but in Idaho farmers had seeded only 72 per cent of their crop. Soybean planting, which usually follows corn, was 29 per cent done by mid-month, compared with 18 per cent a year ago and a normal progress of 16 per cent. Harvesting of the 1976 winter wheat crop was under way by mid-month in several states, including Florida, Alabama, Texas and California, the report said. WANTED!

Phone 7W-7SJI JERUSALEM (AP) - Hundreds of Arab and Jewish students clashed with rocks and clubs today al Jerusalem's Hebrew University and scattered anti-Israeli protests erupted in the occupied West Bank of Jordan. Hospital officials said six students were injured in the university melee. Reinforced patrols of Israeli police and troops were under orders to maintain control but avoid bloodshed if possible in the riot-ravaged West Bank and East Jerusalem, where three Arabs were slain by Israeli gunfire this week. Wilnesses said the Hebrew University fight began when about 150 Arab students demonstrated against Israeli handling of the West Bank rioting, About 200 religious Jewish students led by Habbi Meir Kahane, head of the militant Jewish Defense league - JDI,—set up a counterprotest a few yards airay. Witnesses said the groups began pelting one another with rocks and then clashed with clubs and sticks before police broke them up. A Hadassah Hospital spokesman said four Jews and two Arabs were wounded in the clashes. One Jewish youth was oadly hurt In the bead, the spokesman said, and would nave lo undergo an operation Afler lie clash, Kahane told newsmen: "What you have seen here is a clear and open indication of how the Arabs really feel about this stale." He said the only solution was to transfer all the Arabs "out of this country and Ubtrated Arab lands" lo other Arab states. Minor demonstrations were also reported elsewhere in the occupied West Bank with scattered rock throwing incidents but there were no reports of new casualties. Radio Israel uid border police used tear gas to disperse a crowd of rock-throwing demonstrators near the ancient walled city. The radio said police detained eight youths in Arab East Jerusalem who were urging shopkeepers to close their stores. Shops and three schools in the quarter remained closed. Defense Minister Shimon Peres, speaking on television, defended the policy of breaking up anti-Israel demonstrations. But he said new methods were being investigated to avoid fatalities in the area that Israel seized from Jordan in the 1867 Mideast war. To Your Good Health By Dr. George C.

STAYOFFTHESINUS Dear Dr. Tbosteiw: I kid surgery a year ago to uUock and drain my sinuses. I have used nosedrops aad have taken medteatton shce, but the to- fecUon keeps coming tack. My bead gets stopped up and kmrta. My eyes and itce toff «p. 1 feel dUtounged becaotc this seems like an eidksc problem. Is this to be expected? - F.O.R You may be on the old sinus merry-go-round. Your doctor has undoubtedly cheeked for common pf oblems, such as nasal polyps or bent septum (the wall separating the nostrils). Both conditions can cause the blockage, and blockage is an inflation to sinus infection. That's what I mean by merry-gwound. The blockage infection cycle can be vicious. Smoking or excessive use of nose drops and sprays only worsens matters. Either can tip the scales in favor of infection because they tend to make the membranes swell. But you shouldn't discount a possible allergy. The swelling, watery eyes and puffiness suggest this. Sensitivity to house dust, pets, pillow stuffing or other items you are continually exposed to should be investigated. Nasal passages and the sinuses are made to perform their cleansing and lubrication work efficiently. It is when one of the factors mentioned above enters the scene that trouble occurs. You won't find a lasting solution until you find the exact cause. Then you will need some continuous attention from a physician skilled in these mailers to help you off the merry-go-round. You can help by quitting cigarettes if you smoke, and by cutting down on the drops and sprays. You may find my booklet, "How to Stop Sinus Trouble," helpful. (For a copy, send 35 cents to me in care of Ihis newspaper, enclosing a long, stamped, self- addressed envelope.) Dear Dr. Thosteson: Could you please give me same fo. formation about Inflammation of toe pancreas — OK came, ett. Could it keep a person thin? -M.C. The pancreas (PAN-cree-us) is a very important gland located in the upper mid- 'MERRY-GO.ROUND' section of the abdomen, just behind the stomach. It is about six indies long and an inch thick ir. adults. It produces digestive juices, which flow directly into the small bowel, and also, of course, insulin and glucugon, which go directly into the bloodstream. Inflammation (pancreatitis) causes severe pain, which can be chronic. The cause in about two thirds of the cases is either too much alcohol intake or a gall bladder infection. Distress comes about 24 hours after a drinking bout. The pancreas and the gall bladder ducts enter the small bowel quite close to each other. Thus, infection in one can readily enter the duct of the other. Drinking alcoholic beverages must be stopped if that is a factor.. The gall bladder is taken out if that is the source of the infection. Stones in the pancreas, plugged duds or cysts can also be involved in pancreas disease. If untreated, loss of insulin production can cause diabetes. Insulin is the essential material for "burning" of sugar in the body. Since a pancreas disorder will interfere with digestion, it could keep a person thin, as you suggest. Dear Dr. Tbostesoi: For what reason is a Ugh-ffber diet given to arthritis? — J.C. Diet plays no particular role in treatment of arthritis. One reason for advising a high-fiber intake would be to avoid constipation, which could be a problem with people severely limited in activity by arthritis The fiber helps keep the bowels active. Arthritis sufferers can be helped. Dr. Tbosteson's booklet discusses many types of arthritis and related joint diseases as well as effective treatments and medications. For a copy of "How You Can Control Arthritis," write to him in care of this newspaper. Enclose a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 35 cents. Dr. Thosteson welcomes reader mail but regrets that, due to the tremendous volume received daily, he is unable to anser individual letters. Readers' questions are incorporated in his column whenever possible. dresses.^ pantstiits jumpsuits SALE 20% off Sale ends Saturday!

Israel's first consideration, Peres said, was "to insure order and security to all resi- denU, without exception." He said most of (he Arab deaths were accidental, and troops had strict orders not to fire at demonstrators unless their own lives were in danger. Ten Arabs have been killed by Israeli forces in nearly four months of unrest An Israeli newspaper, the Haaretz daily, reported earlier that the army was considering using tear gas and water cannon to disperse demonstrators and might replace live ammunition with rubber bullets. Curfews remained in force in four West Bank towns. The latest victim, 21-year-old Mahmoud al-Qurd, was shot in the head by Israeli police Tuesday near the bjblical tomb of Christ in Jerusalem's Old City. Israeli authorities said he was slain during an Arab assault with stones and bottles on a police patrol. Arab mourners, bearing the victim's body in a blood-stained shroud, turned his funeral into another demonstration. The Palestinian flag was hoisted atop St Stephen's Gate and the angry crowd chanted: "In our blood and our souls we will redeem the dead ... the Jews are killing us and we will kill the Jews." Earlier demonstrations spilled into the Via Dolorosa, Christ's way to the cross, which is usually thronged with pilgrims. Opposition politicians urged tougher actions lo control Arabs on the West Bank. There were few disturbances there until last year. Palestinian consciousness has been stimulated by Arab diplomatic victories since the 1J73 energy crisis and by activities of the Palestine Liberation Organization. Israel liadio reported Tuesday that Peres had confirmed plans to build a second line of Jewish settlements overlooking the 17 fanning communities already built in the Jordan valley. Jewish settlement in the West Bank has been a major cause of Ox Arab disturbances and has been criticized by the United States as illegal and an obstacle to peace.
