Hehkle denied that the amendment ' would weaken the charter, saying that ho other city has such a. stringent provision. ." The. only' other supported of the amendment was Dr. C. John Satti, who described himself as "one of the guilty politicians." Satti, a member of a board, claimed the. recent insistence that the ban be enforced, is aimed at him, -with the imp!icatioi| that, as he put~"it, "I am a. ro«en, polluted politician." He added ! that the ban "stymies good government." 'Opposing the; measure were members of the New London Civic association. Peter J. Boras charged it would Weaken the,:government.' He added that if pbjitical activity of city employes is" to , be encouraged, the! amendment should apply also to paid workers. He decried the secrecy f with'which he said tfie' Qity Council proposed the amendment, calling it a "bolt out of the c.lear sky."-« Boras, urgedjthe committee" to , insert, > JRrjjyisidn for a? referendum.Tif,the. bill is approve^* A referenaum also was favored 1 by A A.

Written for NBA Service Your Skin Does Well Covering YouUpr-But Strange Things Can Happen To It The skin does its job remarkably well but strange things do happen to it once in a while. Q—My 8-year-old son- has a skin ' infection called Pityriais rosea.' ' What is the remedy and how long does it lost? ,Mrs. C. D. A—Thi? is a mild condition whlcl'i usually requires no treatment. It generally clears up in a few weeks ;and. should be gone by the time .this.appears in print, o o o Q—I have cracks along the edge Of the bottom of my feet. They .are. rather painful but seem to go away after I cover them with adhesive.' However, they come back, though not always in the same spot. What, if anything can be done? M: W. 'A—This is possibly ringworm or some other fungus infection. It .would, be 'best 'to have- scrapings made for diagnosis and :try to get rid ofyit permanently rather than just using, adhesive tape indefinitely. o q O : A—Once a year or so I find a 'bald spot on my head, each time "in a different place. What could this toe? Mrs.J. C. K. A—This is probably a condition hnwn as alopecia areata. Cssa- sloiially it involves all the hair of the head, even, the eyebrows. The hair usually grows 'back- but sonic professional advice would not be amiss. . ' o o o Q—I had a fall 30 years ago and hit the- lower part of the spine. Now it pains me so much at times I can't sit down. Could this cause trouble in my older age? Mrs. Tt> A—It seems to be causing en. c.ugh trouble now. The chances 'are'there has been an- injury to the coccyx which is the lower section of.the spine. Since it Is giving so much difficulty why not liave an X-ray and consultation with an orthopedic specialist? o o o Q—Docs' thyroid trouble have anything to 'do "with an uhde velopcd bust? Mrs.N.

Is the appendix more liable to go bad alter one has been operated on? .'" ' MissJ. M A—The answer to goth questions is "no." If.appendicitis develops in a, few. months after another operation, it must be ascribed to coincidence. o o o Q—You reccnly discussed retaid ed children.

I; opt-,die from; it but it, is uncomfortable to live with. : • •>•..- Mrs.L. L1S. A—This is a condition in which the .heart beats!fast, usually Inter- .mittonly." Both answers arc more or less right since the cause U not always clear and yet the nervous system may play a part.
