Khrushchev — last year's top newsmaker — had to settle in 1960 for first place in the foreijp news category. The unpredictable Russian ialnly ran a close second as he busily made news throughout th" year. He promoted a summit cor ference, then broke it up before . ; got started. He made world-wide propaganda over the U2 spy Incl dent. And, his antics and beta vior at the UN meetings in Ne\ York shocked — but held attention — of the world.

I'D LIKE to make that first quarter of the moon. trip to the moon. There are many things up there that I'd like to find out about. Since ancient times, the moon has been reported to play an important role in tho life of He classifies "bleeders" as Uio.-ic patients who hemorrhaged enough to return, them to the operating room or to take other medical Steps to halt the bleeding-. nmnand particularly in his Can , t „„ Explalnea health. Affected By Moon We know that the moon governs the ocean tides. And we suspect that it might have some effect on menstruation. Now there Is a report that the moon might be involved in some way with the ability o£ the blood to coagulate or clot. Startling Findings A Tallahassee, Florida, ear, nose and throat surgeon has founrl that more of his patients hemorrhage around the period of the full moon than at any other time during the month. In a racent edition of the Journal of the Florida Medical Association, it was reported that more than 1,000 tonsillectomies were checked against the phases of the moon.

But it could be that the moon governs our lives even, more than we thought.

QUESTION AND ANSWER Reader: What is the cause of severe cramps in the leg, including- the foot and the toe, after one has retired? Answer: Night leg cramps are usually due to decreased circulation causing cramping of the muscles. Warmth, the avoidance of tight garters or constricting hose, additional calcium in the diet and certain medicines are helpful in preventing the condition.
