FOREST PARK, 111. (.UP)—A doctor who has spent much of his professional life fighting tuberculosis says the once-dreaded "white plague" still is a major medical as prevalent in the suburbs as in rural areas," Piszczek said. Piiizczek was emphatic in his statements that there is no sure preventive and no known cure for TB. "At the present, through the use problem. Dr. E.A.

Piszczek and his staff know better. They-are waging an unrelenting fight against a "forgotten" disease. "There still is no sure preventive for tuberculosis," he said, 'and there is no known cure." Piszczek said many people are Killed by the fact that the TB death rate has declined from nearly 200 deaths per 100,000 population in 1900 to about 10 per 100,000 in 1956. But he said there has been no •appreciable decline in the number of new cases reported yearly since 1930. Last year, he said, there were 161,276 cases and 13,810 deaths reported, and the figures for 1957 are expected to be about the same. "Since we still Jiave no cure for TB this means we have an ver- increasing number of victims who will need care all their lives," he said, The growth of cities has added them can never be returned to anything like a normal life," he said. Sewing Machines In Most Homes WASHINGTON- Two-thirds of the women in the United States between the ages of 18 and 65 own sewing machines. Recent Agriculture Department surveys found that 46 per cent of these'women use their sewing machines for mending, 40 per cent for making new clothes, 37 per cent for altering clothes, and 35 per cent for making household items. Women are more likely to sew for themselves, the surveys showed. Two-fifth of the women make one to six garments annually and about one-fourth make seven to 12 garments per year. One-third of the women surveyed make more than 12 garments a year. Only a small percentage makes garments for men, children and infants. another headache to the problems VERMILLION, S.

Food's 'Language' Affects Our Taste EAST LANSING, Mich. — Three eggs equal one T-bone steak in protein value, says Dr. Dena Cedarquist, head of the Michigan State University department of foods and nutrition. "This is forgotten however, when planning today's meals," she said. 'Because food has a language of its own, meals are not usually planned from a nutritive stand ; point. "We consider steak 'masculine,' vegetables 'feminine,' and peanut butter 'childish.' "We must slop worrying about these unconscious meanings of food and begin planning meals in nutritive value and low in calories."
