The» Castro Accused Of Attemnt To Revamn Latins WASHINGTON (UPt) United State* charged yesti hat the Cuban regime of Fidel Zastro is "seeking to subvert awl overthrow the constitutional |«\- •nments W the Americas," U.S. Ambassador to the Orgnn- ation of 'American States de- L«SepS S. Morrison matte the charge in a note distributed to the OAS delegations The note also charged that the Castro regime is "intimately associated with the aiirtS of pur« iseS of the Sino-Soviet bloC."

Medical Quackery Old And Profitable Trade WASHINGTON (NEA) — "Doc-1 lieve achirtg joims. It started to tors gave me up and then I found Elixir of Dope and I have hot had a sick day sirtc'e." "I itook three bottles' and fek like a new woman." The hook is baited, the line cast. And medical quacks, each one an expert fisherman, reel in a catch, of oveY a billion dollars a year frb'm' some 25 million Americans. ' ', The present crbp of quacks — estimated at about 100,000 by the recent First National Congress on Medical Qiiackery — has a long and rich heritage; Doctors aren't joking vvheh they refer to qtiack- ery as '"the World's second Oldest professidn," For the reedl'd, charlatans are known to haVe C ut bait as early as 3400 6.C., when a : '"h a i r- growing" poti'ori was devised for the Egyptian Qu'ete'ii Ses. -The fe- eorded prescription was a stimulating mixture of dbg toes, rotten dates ah'd.asses' hooves. . ; Quacks oTteh are pictured as glib, smooth-talking sharpies. Not necessarily so, according to the 'American Medical Assn. 1 v "Quacks don't have toi•; t a 1 k 'smoothly to sell something to a person who Believes -himself d'es- perately ill," says one AMA spokesman. Quackery is an evoutionary process. Instead of getting everything from rhetirnatism cures to virility lures in just a bottle or two of snake oil, present - day victims are given their choice of a specific'and''different cure for each disease. For example: An "Oxyclonor" for the cure of arthritis, This gadget, a copper disc wired to ah aliihiiniim cylinder, was advertised as adding oxyg'en to" the blood flow to re- work ihstanlly when the disc Was strapped to the leg and the cylinder was dipped in cold Water. A "Pandiculator" for short people. Resembling a iViedieVal torture rack, this device was guaranteed to add five inches to a.person's-height by applying ten- si'bh. at chin and ankles. The coi\- man who dreamed this one up eventually Was exposed as a five-foot-tWb midget. A "Natural Eyesight System" to restore perfect vision. This kaliedoscbpe-like gadget, which massaged -the eyelids, was stamped With the-- endorsement: "Use For eyelid exercise and throw away ytfur glasses." At a Post Office hearing th'e ;near - sighted prbhibter. admitted he wore glasses. A quack Will go to any length to ^'et s'oiind en'dd'rsenVents f o r his product.

It had a comma after the word "fin'e," and continued, "but every tjme -I eat. they fall out." In addition to endorsements, quacks bank heavily on vague warnings about unspecific ills, according to AMA. Doorstep; diagnosticians — styled as "t h e riier'chants bF menace" by AMA — peddle cure-alls or "that "tired "subclinical deficiencies" aiVd "aging before y b li r tihie."

DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN The average sickness took two weeks before the danger point was passed and then months of convalescence . . . physicians had to make daily visits and prescribe many different medicines, . . . the percentage of fatal illnesses and infant and maternal v . mortality was appallingly great? NOW - YOU GET BETTER QUICKLY. Each year nVore than 300 new medicines are added 'to our growing stocks of more than 4,000 different prescription drugs. A visit from the physiciin, and often just one prescription effects a cure wirhin days. MODERN MEDICINES SAVE MONEY. ; Although the. average prescription now costs about ! $3.25 and a few more, each one is i great bargain when you consider hosv many less sickness days, how many fewer physician visits and how quickly they enable one to return to productive work. WE ARE GLAD WE ARE PHARMACISTS. We are grateful for the opportunity to save many sickness-days and lives by providing today's wonderfully effective medicines. — INTEGRITY — SERVICE MILLER.HOOD PHARMACY For Good Health BETTER ORUG SERVICE For Good Uvin$ liW Al-COCR STREET OfcJ HQ 4-S409 U.S. No 1 Texas Ib LAST TWO DAYS FRIDAY it SATURDAY SHURFINE CARNIVAL DON'T MISS IT.
