Mrs. Wayne Dowell and sons Gary and Terry of Osceola, Iowa, are vacationing with Mr. and Mrs. Robert Fox and family. Mi\ and Mrs. Albert Scott of Galesburg were dinner guests Sunday of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Harbaugtu through fe cause serious Since there are no pain fibers in the optic nerve, which ends at the retina, the burns cannot be felt. They leave retinal scars which remain throughout life as incurable blind spots. The effect of the sun's rays passing through the lens of the eye and focusing on the retina can be demonstrated by focusing the same rays through a pocket lens on the back of your hand, which is well supplied with pain fibers. No one is to be blamed for wanting to see an eclipse. But it is hardly worth a retinal burn For this reason, one of the following alternatives should be used: Watch it on television. Since the eclipse may be shown several times on newscasts, you may be able to see it more than once. Another method is to punch a round hole '/«- to '/4-inch in diameter in a sheet of cardboard With your back to the sun, hold the cardboard in such a position that the sun's rays pass through the hole and are projected onto a smooth, white surface. ' This is the principle of the camera, and the image projected will be upside down. In the case of a solar eclipse, this doesn't matter. The important thing: Don't be an "eye witness." Q—I have had recurring attacks of neuralgia under my left shoulder blade. My doctor says there is no cure. I am becoming discouraged. A—These severe pains can come and go without any regu larity, so it is hard to tell when they will return. The treatment that is usually tried first is to inject alcohol into the nerve near the place where it joins the spinal cord. Some drugs, such as diphenyl hydantoin (obtainable only on a doctor's prescription) will shorten the.attacks, but will not cure the disease. If nothing else works, it is sometimes necessary to cut the nerve. This should be avoid ed except as a last resort.
