Dawna, who lives at 3438 E. 18th St said she first became interested in the foundation's program after reading some of the late Dr; Tom Dooley's books.

"I thought of joining the Peace Corps, because I realized that there are many people of the world that need help," she said. But the 18-mon th Peace vrps swmwi a wng uuie iu uc awdj uuiu iiuiue, so Dawna applied for the Doo ley program. "It's going to be work," she acknowledges, "but I know I'll come back a much better person for the experience."

After a dip in water, he explained, the female canary turns from mourning to preening and is too busy to pine away. This Pall Mall reader could hardly know he was1 corresponding for microfilmed pos-.

terity, or that anyone 83 years later would care, but he was and someone did. In one of the stranger requests directed to the University of California Library's newspaper and microcopy room, the University of Colo-rado reference department placed two long-distance calls to Berkeley to learn the contents of that letter. The first call told Mrs. Anne H. Reed what was wanted.

On the second she read back the canary formula, found in the Pall Mall microfilm file in the archives she superintends. Who wanted to know about canaries or why? The Colorado library didn't say, but Mrs. Reed receives about five reference calls a day and is used to supplying information. Her storehouse holds a lot of it. Covering three full floors, the room contains close to 10,000 titles.

It accepts 621 newspapers from around the world, including 119 from California. Some date back to the 1600s. Those from the 1800s printed on rag paper remain well pre Wins Awarrl From Army.

James R. Vanderveen, of 2040 Montclair Circle, Walnut Creek bested every Nike-Hercules battery in the Army Air Defense Command, including active Army units with the same mission.

The danger from self mutilation of the burning, painful, eye by rubbing or scratching must not be overlooked. Suspected eye disorders should receive prompt medical attention. Foxtails often manage to gain entry into the nasal passage of the dog. The dog will show signs of often nrnlnntrori snpf7inP SPiTlireS accompanied by sudden hemorrhage from the nasal cavity and excessive pawing at the nose. The sneezing will be continuous initially and then rather sporadic.

If the foxtail is not removed a short time after it gains entry, it will usually migrate to a deeper location. Under these circumstances it is usually necessary to administer a general anesthetic of short duration to locate and successfully remove the awn.

No one sends durable rag, paper copies anymore, but the library buys many microfilm newspaper subscriptions durability of a different sort. On top of this commercial supply, the library itself has filmed more' than five million pages. Asked how long it would take to get the microfilm record of The Tribune for March, 1908, Mrs.

Reed replies, "Just as long as it would take a boy to go upstairs and bring it down about one minute." Originals can' tatter or go out of print, and most California -papers come in filmed.

The common a i 1, a member of the wild barley family, is a mechanically, in-jurious grass.

They are a bushy-branched, spreading annual. Fortified with stout, barbed, awns they pose a constant threat to your pet's health during the summer months. The foxtail is one of the most widely distributed grasses in California pasture lands; thev may be easily seen in cultivated fields, meadows, orchards, along roadsides, and in waste places. The awn or "foxtail" will cling to an animal's coat, and may bore into the skin.They very frequently pentrate the mucous membranes of the mouth, the conjunctiva of the eye, and the delicate skin which lines the ear canal. The; foxtail that penetrates the skin will usually start to migrate.

The bacteria found on a normal animal's kid do not under most circumstances cause any medical problem: however, when the skin's natural resistance is lowered by the intrusion of a foxtail (which also has its own bacterial population) an infection occurs. One of the common locations that foxtails tend to gain entrance under the skin is between the toes (the interdigi-. tal areas) and between the -pads on the bottom of the foot. The skin in the area where a foxtail has entered will appear swollen, inflamed, red, and moist. There may be a thick, reddish, discharge from the tiny wound caused by the penetrating foxtail.

This area of the body will be subjected to quite a bit of licking, biting, and scratching. The general health of the pet at this poinf is not affected; however, as the foxtail migrates under the skin (often all the wayup the leg), fever and deeper secondary infections may develop. The deep dermal infections may form ulcerated, fistulous, tracts which discharge pus tinged with blood. These are very serious forms of a dermal infection, and they should not be neglected. Improper treatment with home remedies at this point can be dan gerous.

The lining of a pet's ear Is very sensitive, and this delicate area is easily infected. Foxtails that gain entry to the ear canal can lead to serious trouble Jf prompt medical attention is not obtained. The affected pet will shake its head, scratch at the ear, and show evidence of pain.
