44 Santa Cruz Sentinel Friday, October 13, 1978 SC Files Lawsuit Over Accident Four men, who were injured when their car collided with a city garbage truck on Highway 1, are facing suit from the City of Santa Cruz. The city has filed a suit asking that it be reimbursed for the costs of repairing the truck and the workman's compensation paid to the driver of the vehicle. Two people were killed in that accident. A total of five people were injured. According to the suit, the city charged that the four men "so negligently maintained, owned, designed, controlled and entrusted the vehicle" that it collided with the garbage truck. The car, driven by Eugenio Perez of 1700 Coast Road, was traveling at "an excess speed" and in "a reckless and erratic manner," according to the suit. It asks that the men Eugenio Perez, Pablo Perez, Juventino Rubalcava and Esabel Ramirez, all of 1700 Coast Road pay for repair of the truck, workmen's compensation and other damages. The suit also charges that Highway 1 at Dimeo Lane is in a "dangerous condition" because the white line on the road curves to the east and gives the impression the road is curving to the east when it actually HEALTH Lawrence E. More sensation By Lawrence Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB I would like to know about penicillamine which is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Many patients in my area are interested in this drug, particularly since we have read glowing reports about it in newspapers. Is it really a miracle drug in curing rheumatoid arthritis? DEAR READER Judging from some reports, you would think there was a new cure invented for some of our long-term diseases almost every month. I am afraid this is more sensationalism than science. The news stories in reference to penicilliamine in some papers is a classic example of this problem. Penicilliamine is a good medicine. As the Arthritis Foundation has pointed out, it is not a miracle drug to cure all cases of rheumatoid arthritis. In fact, it can cause a list of complications as long as your arm. Some of these complications are worse than rheumatoid arthritis It can affect blood elements leading to bleeding, cause kidney problems and other disorders. No one should be on this medicine without being carefully followed by his physician. Penicilliamine was pioneered by Dr. Israili Jaffe. The use of the medicine for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration at this writing. Dr. Jaffe felt that some of the newspaper stories that overstated the case for penicilliamine in treating rheumatoid arthritis was really a "cruel disservice to arthritis sufferers." The medicine is reserved for those cases of long-standing, recurrent attacks of severe rheumatoid arthritis that have not been effectively controlled with other measures. In some patients, who do not develop any complica- PUBLIC NOTICE 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 I I .l 1 1 U U H.ll 1 1 u.

Harrison Stokes Rites Monday Graveside services will be Monday for Harrison Stokes who died Wednesday in Santa Cruz at age 89. A native of Urbana, Ohio, he came to Santa Cruz from Los Angeles following retirement in 1961. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Blanche Stokes of Santa Cruz and two grandsons, Don Newton of San Jose and Dan Newton of Azusa. Graveside services will be conducted at the IOOF Cemetery on Graham Hill Road Monday at 2 p.m. followed by interment.

In short, it is a very useful medicine in a small number of selected cases of the much larger number of people who have rheumatoid arthritis. To give you more information about rheumatoid arthritis, I am sending you The Health Letter number 4-11. Other readers who want this information can send 50 cents with a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope for it. Address your request to me in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, NY 10019. DEAR DR. LAMB - I am 16 years old and jog three or four times a week, but I seem to be breathing harder than I should when I jog. I was wondering if it is because my father smokes heavily and I breathe the smoke from his cigarettes? DEAR READER You can get harmful effects from second-hand smoke. Perhaps one of the best examples is if people smoke heavily in a closed room. In the course of time, the carbon-monoxide level can build up to levels higher than allowed in industrial environments. There is no way I can tell whether your father's smoking pollutes the air in your house enough to cause you a significant problem. I would be inclined to doubt it, no matter how irritating the smoke may be to you. Of course, if the house is closed up, and he smokes an awful lot, then you might have a point. More than likely, you're jogging too fast. A proper jog is done at a speed which doesn't cause a person to become breathless. If you can't talk comfortably while you are jogging, you are jogging too fast. The purpose of jogging is to cover distance, not speed. It's usually just as good for the body to jog three miles slowly as it is to jog it a little faster. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

The defense started with three rounds of spades at both tables. Norman Kay of the runners-up and Paul Soloway of the winners ruffed that third spade, led the jack of hearts and let it ride. When the jack held, they each led a second trump to dummy's king, came to their own hands with the king of diamonds, led the ace of trumps while discarding dummy's ace of diamonds, ran the rest of the diamonds to concede one trump trick whenever West chose to take it. This play was safe against all 4-2 trump breaks. Suppose that trump finesse had lost. East would be on lead. If he led a fourth spade South would ruff in dummy, come to his hand with that same king of diamonds, pull the rest of the trumps and run off the rest of the tricks. Now look what would have happened to either declarer if he had played the first trump to dummy's king and finessed on the way back. West would take his queen and lead the fourth spade. South would have to ruff and West would be left with a sure trump trick and South with a severe headache. Homes Schedules Festival Sunday barbecued chicken for all members of the family.

J7 O C u s Friggaphobiacs Beware If you happen to be a triskaidekaphobe or a Friggaphobiac, today is a day to be careful. Friggaphobiacs don't like Fridays. Triskaidckaphobes fear the number 1.1 According to the National Geographic Society, humans have been battling these fears for centuries. Some standard methods of protection on Friday the 13th include winking at white horses, refusing to eat bananas with ketchup, whistling while passing cemeteries, and tipping your hat to lop-eared dogs. Friday the 13th superstitions even made their way into America's national pastime. Whenever Babe Ruth ran to the outfield during any game on Friday the 13th, he always touched first base for good luck. DO YOU KNOW - What is the fear of closed-in spares called?

The radiators are suspect because they were painted during the summer in the school's maintenance program. Though paint labels indicated nothing harmful in the paint, the teachers' complaints began when the raditors were turned on in cool weather. Any effect on students was apparently slight because classes and students change during the school day. "But the teachers are in the rooms all day," Ernst explained. "We won't know what, if anything, is wrong until the tests are complete," he said. event, and all the committees have been working hard the past several weeks, according to Olivia Meredithm event publicist, to provide a major October festival for people of all ages to enjoy.

The verdict came shortly before 1 p.m. after approximately 45 minutes of deliberation by the Superior Court jury. Wilson said nothing after the verdict was read. His hands trembled slightly as jurors were polled for their verdict. The decision came after two days of trial to determine if Wilson was able to leave the mental hospital. Wilson, 27, was sent to Atascadero hospital after he hijacked a city bus then held 67 persons hostage at a Bonny Doon religious retreat. Wilson will not be able to appeal for his release for another year, according to Superior Court Judge Chris Cottle. "I certainly agree with your verdict," said Cottle. "I couldn't have reached any other verdict myself... None of us, I think, have any animosity toward Mr. Wilson. He is ill, and seriously ill." Wilson was led from the courtroom after the verdict. He said nothing. Bonny Doon School Election Is Certified The county Elections Department Thursday certified the results of Tuesday's unsuccessful recall election against four Bonny Doon School trustees, finding the unofficial results to be one vote off. One absentee ballot failed to be counted Tuesday, County Elections Supervisor Francis Giardina said. Since the voter casting this ballot was anti-recall, the official count gave trustees and anti-recall candidates each one extra vote. It also brought the total number of voters casting ballots to 360. School Board Committees Set The Santa Cruz City School Board has named its committee members for the 1978-79 school year.
