THE WELL CHILD® Normal Life Possible In Cystic Fibrosis Cases By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Teachers in Florida Plan Strike A mother writes asking a number of -questions about cystic fibrosls (CF), one of the inborn errors of metabolism. Formerly this was a highly fatal disease, but now pamphlets on this subject: a child with cystic fibrosis can "As Others " "" " enjoy a normal life if old boy with the facts of life. A—The American Medical paralyze Association, 535 N. Dearborn schools, St., Chicago, 111. 60610, has prepared a series of excellent TALLAHASSEE, Fla, (AP)Thousands of Florida teachers are set to stage a statewide walkout today—a move that could the state's public a normal lire u appropriate treatment is given early In the course of the disease. CF is characterized by abnormally sticky mucus secretions that obstruct the air passages in the lungs and a failure of production of essential enzymes by the pancreas. Also the victim's sweat is abnormally salty. The cause is a defect in one of the genes. The victim inherits this recessive gene from both of his parents although neither of them show any evidence of the disease. Thus, he will not pass it on to his children directly but may pass it to his grandchildren. About 7,000 children in this country are born with this disease every year. Fortunately, many have it in a mild form. The treatment, though effective, is not simple. It requires a team effort in a medical center equipped to care for children with CF until control is established. The child sleeps in a highly humidified tent and antibiotics are given to prevent pneumonia. Postural drainage and inhalation therapy help to prevent blockage of the air passages. In addition to a low-fat, high-protein diet with vitamin supplements, including vitamin E, pancreatic enzymes are given. Special measures must be taken in hot weather to prevent excessive loss of salt through sweating. Recently, a germ that is harmless to the body but which feeds on the sticky mucus has been discovered and is being developed to aid in the treatment of CF.

SECOND WAVE (from pagirone) although there was still enemy sniper fire In the northeast and northwest sections. He said U.S. paratroopers drove the guerrillas beyond the northwest edge of town but one band still held the provincial hospital. South Vietnamese troops on the northeast side of Phan Thlet reported they drove the Communist troops out in that section and said they killed 102 Viet Cong Sunday, suffering seven dead and 57 wounded themselves. But the Communists launched a counterattack this morning, laying down heavy mortar and small arms fire on the railway station, the jail and the city headquarters. U.S. fighter-bombers, helicopter gunshlps and the destroyer Frank E. Evans joined the battle, and the destroyer's five- inch guns blazed away for two hours from the South China Sea. An air spotter said he intercepted a Communist radio transmission reporting that "the big mortars from the sea caused many casualties." The U.S. Command said the Communists shelled Saigon from 10 positions to the north and northwest. Allied planes made repeated strikes at the positions but failed to silence the enemy gunners. The Air Force said U.S. casualties at the entire Tanh Son Nhut complex since the shelling began at 1 a.m. Sunday were six killed and 131 wounded, of whom 67 were hospitalized. The base includes the headquarters of Gen. William C, Westmoreland. Moore Bros.

JBr Cans J^ 00 Fr§§h Steak 2 »9 Bread Teachers are meeting in 21 locations throughout the state for "information and instructions" in their bid for higher pay and more money for education. Hundreds of thousands of the state's 1.5 million school children begin unscheduled vacations from nearly 2,000 public schools. School officials in 16 of the state's 67 counties said their schools would operate but that they did not know for how long. Some school systems planned to try operating with teachers who have not resigned, substitutes and supervisorypersonnel. Others, like the big Dade (Miami) County system, told parents to keep their children at home. Gov. Claude Kirk interrupted a speaking tour of the West to beg teachers not to "desert your children" but it apparently had no effect and Kirk flew back to California. Circuit Court Judge Ben C. Willis barred,the Florida Education Association (FEA) from "trying to persuade teachers to violate their educational contracts," but he admitted there was no way to keep teachers from resigning. Phil Constans, executive secretary of the FEA, said 35,000 resignations had been turned in from among the state's 60,000 teachers. He said they had been held since last fall but now had oeen "activated." The resignations were sent to school boards after the Florida legislature adjourned without making what the FEA regarded as satisfactory provisions for the schools during a special session that lasted three weeks. The FEA objected to provisions for property tax relief in the legislature's education package which Constans said would reduce money for schools. The FEA contends the $254.5 million education package contains only $98 million for education, while legislators insist the bill passed last week provides $180 million for education. Neither side in the dispute could foresee an end to the battle and full resumption of classes, "The teachers know exactly what they are doing and are going to stick with it come what may," Constans said, "If it is a long struggle, we are ready to make it a long struggle," State House Minority Leader Donald Reed, R«Boca Raton, vowed unending resistance to an FEA demand to be recognized as the bargaining agent for all Florida teachers, Reed said money was only a side issue and accused the FEA leadership of masterminding a "power play" 1 in state politics, Although some legislators said the only answer to the shut* down is for lawmakers to come back to Tallahassee and ham* mer out another education bill. Reed, a close advisor to thegovt ernor, said a second special ses« sion would not be callecj, "At (his point, {here's no rea, son for it,' 1 he said, "and I'm not interested in going up there until the legislature is ready to enact laws to keep this frojn happening again,'* Gerald Mager, gubernatorial legal aide, said if teachers did not show up and their absence ''seems to he part ofapneral scheme or design to strike," he would urge the state to go back to court to try to enforce Judge uif*«t* _» ^ order, Vicuna wool and silky.
