(AP) Sleeping children are telling secrets about asthma — a tragic and sometimes deadly disease that grips five million Americans. Machines record the pulse, breathing, heart beat and brain waves of these youngsters in slumber — and it also records the very movement of their eyes to show when they are dreaming- Researchers here are looking for patterns that develop before an asthma attack — a constriction of breathing passages that makes the vicim feel like he is suffocating. A severe attack can bring death. Dr. William W. Hahn is conducting the study at the Children's Asthma Research Institute and Hospital. The hospital offers treatment to youngsters 6 to 15 from the United States and abroad. Admission is based on he severity of the case and is limit- Today In History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Tuesday, Nov. 15. the 319th day of 1966. There are 46 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1777, the Articles of Confederation were passed by the Continental Congress. They went into effect in March 1781 and were the law of the land until the Constitution became effective. On this date: In 1805. the Lewis and Clark Expedition reached the mouth of the Columbia River—the Pacific Ocean. In 1920. the Assembly of the League of Nations held its first session in Geneva. In 1942, in the fifth and greatest naval action in the Solomon Islands, Adm. William Halsey's fleet smashed a Japanese attempt to retake Guadalcanal. Ten years ago — Representa- tivs of the nine Arab League nations, meeting in Beirut, Lebanon, voted unanimously to break off diplomatic relations with Britain and France unless British, French and Israeli forces were withdrawn from Egypt. Five year ago — Two satellites were launched into orbit from Cape Canaveral, Fla., atop a single Thor-Able-Star rocket. One year ago—The Supreme Court ruled that Communists, as individuals, are not required to register with the government under the 1950 Subversive Control Act. big time.

He explained that the heart rate and similar body functions are controlled by the autonomic nervous system, composed of two branches which work in opposition to each other. One speeds up the heart, the other slows it down. Normally, said Dr. Hahn, they achieve a balance or harmony. But he believes in asthmatics the balance is disturbed. Doctors believe that emotional problems can cause asthma, as well as physical factors such as allergies. Dr. Hahn is hopeful that the study will show whether emotional stress can trigger an asthma attack. His machines can measure psychological re- action by tracing the wave pattern, he said. » * # He also wants to determine in which of the four stages of sleep asthma attacks occur. Stage one, in which a person dreams, is the stage of lightest sleep. The deepest sleep is in stage four. Rapid eye movements recorded by the machine show when a child is dreaming, said Dr. Hahn. Everyone dreams, he said, although some don't remember their dreams when they awaken.
