Strapped to his arm were two metal splints. One held a container to steady his pen; the other a tubular device for telephone dialing, At 25—he will be 26 on Aug. 7 — Countee has spent seven years in what he calls "this way He had completed his second year at Harvard and like many 19-year-old college boys was unwinding during the summer. He was at a Chesapeake Bay beach in Maryland when his world was shattered. He dove from a pier. His head struck the sand. The Impact crushed his spinal cord.

"You know things won't be easy. You learn to take the rough with the smooth." The Doctor Says By W. G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Q—My husband has gout. One doctor told him to eat no turkey or chicken, just red meat, and another said he could eat fowl but no red meat. Which one is right and what would be a good antigout dit? A—In a strict antigout diet all meat, fish and fowl is avoided, and especially such glandular cuts as kidneys, liver and sweetbreads because they increase the uric acid level in the blood The same is true to a lesser degree of such vegetables as asparagus, lentils, cauliflower, all dried beans, mushrooms and spinach. Whole wheat bread should also be avoided. This leaves eggs, shad roe, cheese, gelatin and milk as meat substitutes. White bread, soups that do not contain meat extract, fruit and all vegetables not mentioned above may be taken as desired. If your doctor is also giving your husband drugs to control his gout the diet can be liberalized and a small portion of meat may be allowed so extended by several of the young people for the assistan c e they received for attending For tune Lake Bible Camp.

UNDEFEATED IN BATTLE Alexander the Great, king o Macedonia from 336 to 323 B.C. was a military genius who neve lost a battle, a far-seeing states man and a notable phllosop her Q—My doctor has prescribed olchiclne, benamid and four 0-grain sodium bicarbon ate ablets daily for my gout. Is it afe to take that much soda? A—This is excellent treatment and 40 grains of baking soda is not excessive. Would you feel better about it if he told you to ake a daily dose or 2'/2 grams? Q—In a recent column you mentioned two types of hepa- ,itis—serum and viral. S o m years ago I had what was called ,oxic hepatitis. Is this a third ,ype? A—What I said was that there were two types of viral hepatitis —serum and infectious. Other ;ypes include amebic and toxic. Toxic hepatitis may be caused by carbon tetrachloride, phosphorus, chloroform, arsenic, poisonous mushrooms, many drugs ;aken in excessive amounts and many industrial chemicals. Q—Is there itching and burn ing with hepatitis? How is hepa- iitis diagnosed? Does one have to be hospitalized for it? A—In all forms of hepatitis there is jaundice (bile in t h e tissues). The deeper the yellowing of the skin, the more intense the itching. Burning is not so common and may be due to some other cause. The diagnosis of hepatitis is based on the presence of nausea, jaundice and a swollen, tender liver. Hospitalization in the acute stage is strongly advised because during this stage strict bed rest is required. 2 Convicted \ Of Robbery GRAND RAPIDS (AP) — Wtl liam Pearson, 24, of Grand Rapids, and James Marshall, 22, of Rockford, 111., were convicted Wednesday of bank robbery in a $43,303 holdup last May 17. A jury deliberated only 33 minutes before returning a conviction to U.S. District Judge Noel P. Fox. The defendants were remanded to Kent County Jail to await sentence. Pearson and Marshall were acoused of being the shotgun wielding bandits who invaded a suburban Wyoming branch of Union Bank & Trust Co. They were arrested May 28 in New Orleans, where federal agents said most of the loot was recovered. Washington received only his actual expenses for his services as commander-in-chief during the Revolutionary war. Please send your questions and comments to Wayne G. Brandstadt, M.
