Brandstadt, M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Asn. Q— Is an irritated or nervous colon caused chiefly by laxatives Is there any fever with it? A—Although prolonged use of laxatives is a common cause of colitis, it may also be caused by getting too much roughage in your diet, emotional upsets, food allergy or chilling the abdomen. It is not associated with fever. Diarrhea with fever may be caused by salmonella infections including typhoid and various types of dysentei-y. Q—Are sudden uncontrollable bowel movements common in people who suffer from spastic colon or colitis of any type? Can anything be done for this? A—Severe attacks of spastic colon or colitis are often associated with a sudden powerful urge to empty the bowel. Although control rather than cure is possible, it cannot be achieved overnight. It often requires a careful study by a gastroentero- logist to determine the underlying cause and to prescribe a course of treatment that includes medicine, diet and hygienic living. Q—After a woman gets her mucous colitis under control with a bland diet and drugs, can she eat whatever she wishes or should she avoid certain foods? A—Anyone who has suffered from mucous colitis can get a relapse by eating a large amount of roughage. You should get, as early as possible, the same amount of roughage evei-y day, making minor adjustments in the amount to keep your stools firm but not hard. After two or three years of good control you may find that your tolerance for vegetables and fruit will increase but it is unwise for any one to go overboard in eating these foods just because they are in season. Q—I have frequent bouts of colitis for which I take sulfa- guanidine. This helps me, but will it damage my kidneys? A—This powerful antibacterial agent is safe when taken under medical supervision. Too large a dose may cause a variety of harmful reactions Including damage to the kidneys, liver and blood. Incidentally, this remedy is not generally prescribed for colitis. Pease send your questions and comments to Wayne G. Brandstadt, M.D., in care of this paper. While Dr. Brandstadt cannot answer individual letter he will answer letters of general interest in futiu-e columns. FOR LADIES ONLY... I Remember Thanksgiving Spent In Aunt Busy's Home By SALLY As I've mentioned before. It doesn't take a special time of the year to bring fond memories of my beloved Aunt Busy. .. However, on the Eve of Thanksgiving, the lamp of memory is especially bright—and lights the way for my straying thoughts to travel to the remembered warmth of her home. . . So, friends of this column, come along with me as I attempt to tell you how wonderful It was. To begin with, let me say that preparations for the Thanksgiving Dinner got under way at her house on Monday preceding the all-timportant Thursday. . . And, let me also say. It was my happy privilege to share in her bustling activities. . . Also, in the pursuit of total honesty, I'll admit I gladly assumed chores which, in my own home, caused me to set up a wail of protest—such as washing an endless stack of dishes. But, somehow, it just wasn't such a miserable task when I tackled it at her house—which, I'm sure is understandable. . . After aU, while I polished the plates and platters I wasn't actually seeing them as they were but rather as they would appear on the big Feast Day. . . Which, of course, is also to explain that visions of taste-tempting goodies were constantly in my mind. I was there when the farmer delivered the enormous turkey— neatly prepared for the oven by his wife who enjoyed an enviable reputation for her ability in such matters. .. This, hy the WB>». was never a moment later than Tuesday aftenmon. Aunt Busy held the firm belief that proper flavor was only achieved with a frozen fowl. . . Which, of course, was no problem. , . . Back then, the weather was completely obliging— with the thermometer hovering around zero. . So, the turkey was put in the huge roaster, the cover placed over it, and it was put on a shelf in the frigid smokehouse— to remain until late Wednesday evening. 4^ ^ JO- Wednesday was bake day. . . And, as I hurried to her home after an endless day at school. I found the pantry shelves lined with an assortment of pies, cakes, and large loaves of crusty bread. . . (Having compassion for the way time drags for a child, I also found small samples of each goody waiting for fne on the kitchen table.) And, having shown my appreciation with much Up-smacking and finger licking, I made my hands tidy—under Aunt Busy's close inspection—and was ready to assist her in the dining room. . . Here, the compact dining room table had been extended to include three seldom used leaves —in order to seat fourteen relatives. . . The polished china and gleaming silver were placed In neat array along with the linen napkins—then we were ready to start on what went In the center of the table. . . First, one of her arrangements of carefully hoarded autumn leaves which she had kept in the cool and slightly damp cellar In order to preserve their natural brillance... Around these, went the covered compotes contalnmg a variety of "spreads" and the pickle jar wkh the silver tongs on the side. Came the day — at last. . . And, as the house flUed with a symphony of holiday aromas, I stood at the parlow window and watched the horse-drawn wagons—converted into sleighs — turn into the lane and head for Aunt Busy's front gate. ... Greetings took a lot of time. . . There were new babies to be admired. . . the growth of the other children was duly noted as compared to the previous year's meeting. . . The men came together in a cloud of pipe and cigar smoke to talk about world affairs in general. . . And the women hurried out to offer assistance with last minute preparation of the dinner. . . (At best, this would be handling the countless bowls as Aunt Busy "dished up" — because she was quite frank in expressiong her opinion about what happened when too many cooks got into the act.) Finally, while the adults were seated at the main table, the "youngins" were being seated at a long table which had been extended across one end of the kitchen. . , One of the group said 'a few appropriate words". . . And everyone got down to the real business of the day. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. , . And, for each adult I have no greater wish than this: May each have the memory of one who was as dear as my beloved Aunt Busy was to me. .. And, for each child, a day spent with those who, in the far away future, will be remembered — as I remember her. DEAR ABBY Don't Date Until You Get Divorce Abigail Van Buren A REPRIEVE from the chopping block was^temporatfly S inted this white hen turkey, which established some portant connections with Mrs. Shkley Wiseman of Shelbina, Mo. White turkeys are gaining ground on the traditional bronze types to^ptopulRrlty at the Thmks. giving table ta some parts of the country. This sociable hen played it safe either way by making frleods with Mrs. Wiseman, an employe at the Missouri Farmerg Awn. poultry processing plant at Shelbina. DEAR ABBY: Please advise me as to how a 19-year-old girl from a small town who is separated, with a divorce in the near future, should conduct herself. I have a 6-months-old son and I want to keep my reputation flawless for his sake as well as my own. I have no idea what is acceptable conduct for a girl In my situation. Should I date? Should I go to thfe local dances and dance with anybody who asks me? Should I accept dates out of town that mean staying overnight? (Even if we had separate motel rooms?) How about attending mixed parties with a group of girls? I would appreciate any advice you can give m NO NAME, NO TOWN . DEAR NO NAME: A woman who Is not yet divorced should not date. She may enjoy the company of the opposite sex at parties, or in groups,' but she certainly should not accept overnight invitations. Neither should she go to the local dances and dance with anybody who asks her. It's all right to attend parties with a "group" of girls, if she goes home with the "group" she came with. DEAR ABBY: I know if s customary to send roses to an a&> tress on her opening night. But what does one send an actor? Flowers somehow don't seem appropriate for a man. LMG DEAR LMG: Send a telegram, a rabbit's foot, a four-leaf clover or a horseshoe—accompanied by a little "eating money" ta case he bombs. DEAR ABBY: The letter about people who take thefa* Ill-mannered, untrained children to public places and turn them loose, and your answer ("blame the parents") broke my heart. I am the mother of such . chDd, and I assure you I am not to blame. If people only knew how much they hurt me when they ask my darling little boy, "What In the world is wnmg with you?" You see, he Is retarded, epileptic, and abnost blind. I do correct him but he forgets so soon. No one wants to sit with a child like mine, so I have to take him with me. I am not ashamed of him, but I don't intend to go thru h'fe apologizing to strangers for something which neither lie nor I can help. Sign this "LOVES HIM ANYWAY" CONFIDENTIAL TO "HURRICANE INEZ": Life is not that complicated. The most important thing a mother can do for her children is to love their father. Problems?

For may of us oldsters living on Social Security, the cost of Oiristmas, cards becomes burdensome. I enclose our suggestion, which is a white paper napkin vn"th colorful holiday greetings stamped in one comer. We have a rubber stamp with our names and address and with this we add our names. All we then need to do is buy inexpensive white envelopes into which the folded napkins will fit. We buy the napkins In packages of 100 and with very little trouble and expense we are all set with our holiday greetings. —JUDGE HARRY. DEAR POLLY - After our Christmas cards are opened, the envelopes are always thrown away but I always write the sender's address on the back of tile card, before discardmg the envelope. As I keep our cards from one year to the next I have the latest addresses. This enables me to mail our cards early. The children use last year's cards for decorating at home or school.—COPEE. DEAR READERS-Bob Kennedy of the popular radio and television Contact shows on Boston station WBZ told me that his mother saves Christmas card and the next year she decorates a gift with the card that that particular person had sent her the previous year. This adds a warm, personal feeling to the gift and the recipient knows that her card was noticed and really appreciated.—POLLY DEAR POIXY—Many years ago my mother taught me how to iron a sheet painlessly. Fold It in eighths and use if as an ironing pad. By moving It about on the board and touching up the edges, you will have a very well-ironed sheet with practically no extra work.—ANNA DEAR POLLY-I have a problem I do not know how to solve so am turning it over to you and the girls. My IVa-year-old son likes to take bites out of toilet soap and eat it. He is well-fed, so hunger could not be causing the trouble. What can I do to stop this? Any help will surely be appreciated. -MRS. G.L.B.

Hannah presented her program "Creative Gift Giving," to an absorbed audience at the meeting of the Mt Vernon Art GuUd held Monday evening, Nov. 21, In the Community Center. Introduced by Ethel Myllus as an artist who has always been interested In the effective use of talent, Mrs. H.W. Hannah began with "the painter who tiiinks in terms of a painting. He may have a person on his gift list who would want a picture to complete a living room wall. A satisfying gift would be a copy of a master's work painted from an inexpensive miniature." The speaker also suggested to "paint some of Mom's stuff on canvas to be given to someone away from home who remembers the favorite items with fondness." Another area of ideas Is the use of pencil sketches, like those done on vacation and later mounted to preserve the pleasant memories. On one occasion grandfather's sketches were mounted and sent to the grandchildren as gifts. Small sketches can be made into plates at the printer and used for stationaiy or note paper. One who Is an artist at taking pictures with a camera can create still life arrangements of prized produce from the garden or treasured objects and have the colored prints framed attractively for a special gift. Adopting other people's creative pieces can also be a source of unique gifts. An unusual example of this is the collection of rubbings on rice paper which the speaker said could be mounted on plywood and handsomely framed. "These came from carvings on an Indian temple but you could use something local like brass plates." A child's interest in a subject like Columbus can call for the mounting of a map reprint of the one actually used by the navigator the speaker commented. Several examples of modem needlework were shown. One was a tapestiy piece in wool which was worked from a blueprint rather than a stamped design. Mrs. Hannah found the British publications as a source for unusual pieces and also for Florists Meet At Murphysboro Florists Transworld Delivery sponsored a one-day meeting at Murphysboro last Sunday, new Christmas arrangements were demonstrated with use of candles, glassware, and religious pieces. The designers were Kathryn Shelton of Lucas Flowers In Dexter, Mo., Rose Ferrell of Robinsons Flowers in Anna, and Alice Higgins of Ivan's Flowers in this city. Ivan Pigg, also of Ivan's Flowers acted as master of ceremonies for the design session and the business meeting. There were about a hundred florists present from all over southern Illinois and southeast Missouri. Following the meeting, the group enjoyed a delicious smorgasbord in the beautifully decorated V.F.W. Hall. The next meeting will be held next March in this city. U,S.'PAT.OfF.

Among the several Indian pieces that attracted the audience was the embroidery hanging of the famed Taj Mahal which was done with gold wire and a star done hi sterling silver. Mrs. Hannah said "This i« ^ vanishing art in India." Among the pottery items dls-. played was a bisque-fired nativity set. Molds for this and., for a chess set can be obtained and the products painted to suit • the individual's taste. At one time Mrs. Hannah herself used a basic vase mold for a lamp and decorated it with the symbols of the sport lover to whom it was later given. A copper ash tray was enlianced when the speaker explained that the out* line of the house hammered into the base was taken f rom a friend's Christmas card photo received the previous year.
