TWO EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MO., TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for t WANT AD Hormone Use Causes Rare Diseases Become Common By EDW1X DIAMOND CHICAGO uNS) — A Univcrsit. of Illinois physician warned loda; that certain rajc diseases — "one confined solely,to ic.xr books" — are becoming increasingly commoi due to widespread use of hormoiii treatments. He urged a meeting of physician in Chicago to "have an understand ing of all actions before embarking - on hormone therapy." Dr. Samuel G. Taylor, an endo crinologist and clinical associat professor of medicine at Illinois made it clear he was not opposed to the use of hormones to contro fatal diseases. But he recommended caution in using hormones for treating skin conditions, itches and other rela lively minor ailments. Hormones are chemical extracts from the various glands in the body's endocrine system, which includes the thyroid, adrenal, pituitary and sex glands. Such hormones as cortisone, estrogen, androgen and thyroid extract have been used to treat a wide range of diseases, including arthritis, allergies, rheumatic fever and forms of cancer. Dr. Taylor, speaking before the 14th annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology and Syphilogy, declared diseases of the endocrine system have become Negro Group Head found Murdered "epidemic" in the past few years.

Dr. Taylor also warned the re moval of certain endocrine glands, to control the spread of disease was contributing to the increase in glandular disorders and body im balance. Dr. Taylor said many of the so called "side reactions" to cortisone treatments are really direct phy siological actions of the hormone due to big dosage. He urged the specialized doctor to work with endocrinologists familiar with the actions of hormones. As an example of the kind of dif- 'iculty encountered, Dr. Taylor described the case of a 19-year-old ;irl choir singer who complained of hoarseness and hypertension. It turned out she had been given an overdose of male hormone. The condition was corrected but Dr. Taylor added: "In another month with no treatment, she would have been singing )ass in the choir."

And so the thrill - with Stride's new TT TTTH ALL the big excitement of Buick's 1956 styling ' * aD d power and ride and handling-it's easy to overlook this fact: Gas mileage in the '56 Snicks takes a big step upward. One reason, of course, is the new, power plant itself. Every nevr Buick cradles an advanced 322-cubic-inch VS engine with the highest horsepowers, Series for Series, in all Btiick history. Yet every engine delivers more efficiency, and more usable power to the rear wheels— because each one has a new double "Y" mani- folding, and a new high in compression ratio. But the major reason for the happy news in gas mileage —and for the new step-up in safety and thrills-is Buick's latest version of Variable Pitch Dynafiow. In this airplane-principled transmission, yon always had a gas-saving cruising range— and, at a switch of the pitch, a full-power getaway range. Now Buick engineers have brought to this cniisinf range what they call "double regeneration." It simply means a new way to make flowing oil add to its own velocity to build up drtorng force.
