BY WILLIAM A- Q'BKIEN, M. D. Written for NEA Service swallowing is one of the commonest symptoms of my- aslhenia gravis (severe inuscle weakness). 'Hie drug prostigmine stimulates the weakened swallowing muscles, thereby helping to make the- diagnosis, as no other form of swallowing difficulty is helped by that particular remedy. Henry R. Viels, M. D., reports in the 'Journal of the American Medial Association on his observations ITS patients with myasthenia jravis at the Massachusetts General ospital, Boston. In one out of ev- ry five patients, swallowing diffi- ulty was the first sign of excessive luscle fatigue. In addition, soma f his patients began to speak irough their nose from weakness f their palate muscles. First symptoms of inyasthenia ravis can develop at any age, al- hough the majority start, between 3 and 30. Considerable number of ascs oc:ur between 60 and 10, which s the time of life when other swal- owing difficulties are common. •In addition to swallowing troubles, myasthenia gravis patients also complain of drooping eyelids 'and double vision, and general muscu- ar weakness of the arms, legs and, occasionally, the neck. <The muscle difficulty is caused by excessive Fatigue and normal action returns iifter a rest period. ' Cause, of niy asthenia gravis is^unknown although the excessive'fa- tigue is Known to develop from a chemical disturbance at the point where the nerve connects -with the muscle. As 'pro'stlgmine overcomes this-excessive fatigue by stimulating the ' muscle, the drug is not only used for diagnostic tests but also for treatment. UP-AND-DOWN AILMENT •Progress of untreated myasthenia gravis is variable. In some patients the syir..ptoriM dp not change for a long time, while, others, complete relief is obtained. It is essentially a disease* of ups and downs which may change either way. .. Once considered fatal, the disturbance OS now largely controlled by prostigmine. In Dr. Viets 1 patients, an anticipated fatility rate of 75 per cent was reduced to 20 per cent. lAs there are many causes of swallowing difficulty, a painstaking examination should bc made to determine the variety- be' ,ent is started, uses are said to the department added: 1.

Exports in the second quarter the industry-written bill House floor a little over bill in the House. In the Senate, the bill had a muchj narrower squeak. ' With -only five days of the session remaining, Sen. Dennis Cliiwesi of • New Mexico began to get excited about Section When lit the .„„,,., o— - — month ago, however, it inline- 1202-'e! He" offered an amendment liatcly drew fire. Rep.. John W. Plahnngan of Virginia, former chairman of the House Committee on Agi-Icultiire, in which the New Deal's original sugar quota control legislation had been written, called the new act, "the most vicious piece <jf price-fixing ever proposed In Congress. 1 nm in the. role of the lone wolf," snid Flnnnngan. "I am the only one who will oppose tUls bill." '•" Flammgnn wanted to know what the State Department's 202-e amendment to • collect claims from sugar-producing countries in default to U. S. citizens really meant. svho would, produce the sugar that ,\voultl be cut from the quoins of these defaulting countries? Hastily . :a kill it. The sugar lobby boys began to swent blackstrap molasses. If the Clinvez amendment, carried. the bill would go back to the House There wasn't lime for the Hoase to act, and, in that case. their bill would be dead. It came up for final consideration on the next to the 'nst day of the session. •rne debate was hot and the vote was close. But in the end the State Department's Section 20'2-e was kepi in, 42 to 40. After that, passage of the bill was a mere formality. SAYS Bin, INSUHKS FAIR PRICES ' The fight since then, _howe<wr. There are certain price guarantees for domestic sugar producers in the new bill, carried over from the act of 1937. There are benefit payments to cane and beet'growers .who stay within their allotted acreages. And if growers are also producers, they are guaranteed a fair price for their cane or beets regardless ol the price of refinec sugar. Money to pay these benefits comes from a tax on the refining be more common than has been realized. QUESTION: Do you" have'a spe-' cial diet leaflet for gall bladder disease? ANSWER: There is no special diet for gall bladder disease: Physicians suggest those foods .which do not cause distress. ers yrant a low price for raw sugar which they refine. In this bill they hnve gone along with the rest of the industry to support a higher stabilized price for everybody. But at the most, industry spokesmen claim all these guarantees would raise the price of sugar to, the consumer from 'A to % cents a nound.

(UP)—Trygye Lie secretary general of the United Nations, said today that wars come because people prepare for them rather than for peace. They do this, he said, oecause they don't really believe that peace can last. In an article, "Lasting Peace in Our Time," in the 'Rotarian, magazine of Rotary International, Lie wrote that wars can be abolished forever if people and nations turn out clothing, food and housing instead of battleships, torpedoes and Members. As a first step toward "lasting aeace in our time," Lie sarfd, people musti convince themselves that permanent .peace is not only necessary but possible. The first basis lor ail enduring peace," he said, "is the acceptance by .all people of this .Idea of 'permanency." not as a dream or distant-ultimate goal, but as the immediate bare minimum of what they desire and demand." Then, he said, people must.bear down on the living problems which only peace can solve—famine, disease, illiteracy, housing and crop improvement. lv We cannot satisfy, even the barest needs of our people . . . unless the individual governments concentrate every last scrap of their resources and energies on these elementary problems." . Lie said some people believe wails necessary while others believe peace is only a vacation between wars. "To them force as a means is justified in the maintenance of a Iocs.
