Q—I have osteoarthritis In a couple of my fingers. Some people advise me to rub the joints. Is that good? How can I prevent the condition from getting worse? A—There is a strong hereditary factor in the development of the swollen finger joints of os­ teoarthritis. They are more common in women than men and often start with the onset of the menopause. Such exertions as typing, piano playing, knitting, trying to open stucit windows or screwtop jars or carrying heavy pacltages may aggravate them. Excessive heat and cold should be avoided. Many housewives wash dishes in water that is much hotter than it need be or spend too much time rearranging the contents of a deep freeze. Massage is not recommended. If the joints are acutely red and tender, an injection of hydrocortisone directly into the joint may be helpful. Beyond this and aspirin (if the pain is severe) the only treatment is to avoid the injuries mentioned and Iteep the hands warm in cold weather. Q—I have a lot of pain in my legs. My doctor says I have os­ teoarthritis. How can he tell that it isn't osteosarcoma? A—The X-ray appearance of osteosarcoma, a form of cancer, is entirely different from that of osteoarthritis. Q—I am 74 and have osteo­ arthritis in my arms. Should I take some form of calcium for it? A—Although calcium is of great value in preventing and treating osteoporosis (softening of the bones), it is of no special value in the treatment of osteo­ arthritis. Q—My husband is taking Me- drol for arthritis. Will it cause any harmful side effects? A—Medrol is one of the corti­ sonelike drugs. It should not be taken continuously over a long period. Your husband should report any unusual symptoms promptly to his physician. Q—I am a widow, 85. I have been taking Tandearil and Com­ pazine for six years tor my arthritis. Wi'l they cause any harmful side effects? A—Tandearil is a brand of oxyphenylbutazine. It is widely used to treat Joint diseases. In some persons it may cause wa­ terlogging and a rash. These symptoms can be controlled by reducing the dosage. Prochlorperazine (compazine) zine) is a tranquilizer that is often given to persona with arthritis. In large doses it may is a tranquilizer t h at is cause tremors, headache and dryness of the mouth. Anyone who is taking either drug should have a periodic blood count.

The young couple hopes to avoid a hospital bill of $10,000 a year by buying a $6,200 artificial kidney. Michaels would be trained to operate the machine. He already has made a $1,200 down pa.vment. i "I can't operate the machine my.solf while I'm on it," Mrs. Midiaols said. "I could pass out i or something. It's just not safe." i She said Michaels is the only person in their families who could spend the 10 hours required to filter her blood through the artificial kidney. The draft board revoked Michaels' student deferment alter lie dropped out of senior-year classes in electrical engineering at Lawrence Institute of Technology, i He was spending almost all his sparo time at his wife's bedside for nine weeks at three 'hospitals. He also took three weeks off his $5,500-a-year job at the Dodge truck plant. Dr. Elsie Eng, their family physician at Cleveland CUnic in Cleveland, Ohio, and tlieir par- ; ish priest wrote to tlie draft board in October.

I "The board said the letters weren't specific enough as to why he was needed at home," Mrs. Michaels said. Last Monday, the doctors again wrote to Board 303. "The doctors couldn't believe they had to write two letters," Mrs. Michaels said. Mrs. Michaels said Rep. ' Jam.es G. O'Hara, D-Mich., had contacted Col. Arthur Holmes, state Selective Service director. TTiere was no immediate indication what action would be taken on the case. COLUMBUS.
