In reporting his interesting statistics to the American College of Surgeons, he divided his cases between those who had their operations between 1936 and 1948 and those who got their after 1948. The dividing year is important because it marked the time when improved surgical techniques permitted the relatively safe taking of more than half a stomach. Among the pre-1948 patients who lost 'one-half their stomachs, only 14 per cent lost 5 per cent or more of their pre-operative weight in the three years following the operation. But Harvey said this wasn't too good a way of measuring because many weight losses were not "harmful" 'out were "at times very beneficial." "A loss of weight from 200 pounds'; to 170 after operation would not be disturbing, but a drop from 100 to 95 might well be," fie said. So he made these pre-1948 sta- losses which "disturbed" the doctor and only 1.6 per cent had "serious nutritional defects." Statistics Show Results Then he made an identical statistical table for the patients after 1948. These patients gave up 60 to 75 per cent of their stomachs. During the first three years afterward, 31 per cent lost 5 or more per cent of the pre-operative weights, -11.9 per cent had weight-losses which' were medically disturbing, and 6.3 per cent had "serious nutritional defects." By removing part of the stomach the surgeon removes a proportionate pat of the source of the gastric acids which in excessive amounts .cause ulcers. He may also remove the part of the vagus nerve which- incites the flow of those acids. In his recommendations, Harvey recommended vagus removal along with 50 per cent stomach removal, together with certain refinements in re-connecting .stomach and intestinal tract. Doctor Speaks Out On "Somatopsychic By DELOS SMITH United Press Science Editor NEW YORK, (UP)—Swimming against tbe present-day scientific current, a medical doctor demands more attention for the "somatopsyohie" and less for the ' 'psy chosoma tic."

Genuine hysterics always want something—that is why they're hysterical, he said, and then he complimented American women on the grounds that there are few genuine hysterics among them.

"An hysteric wants something.

Doctors cain't be too careful in deciding what is hysteria. "A diagnosis of hysteria is not complete unless it includes the mechanism behind it, which means 'what does the patient want?'" But there is no problem actually, in his opinion, "in this country," he said, any" hysteria. "there isn't Sometimes sliping an old nylon over a hair brush will keep a brush clean longer.

Trading most of the time was between local bro- ken with outside interest absent. At U;» end of the week, wheat was 1 to 2% cents a bushel higher compared with Friday a week ago. Corn was up V* to % cent, oats advanced 3 A to 114, rye was up 3 to 5% cents, loybeans were 2% to 2% higher and lard was 17 cents lower to 15 cents higher per hundred pounds. A trading factor early in tbe week was a bullish private estimate which placed the amount of : wheat under government support as of Oct. 15 at 149 million bushels compared with 198 million on the same date a year ago. Although 49 million bushels smaller than total impounding ion Oct. 15, 1956, the estimated reflected an increase of 55 million bushels in the past 30 days compared with 35 million during tha same 30 day period a year earlier.
