The Stomacli Ulcer THE CAUSE of ulcer of the stomach is not known and has led to many speculations. An ulcer is a round area on a mucous mem-, brane surface—which , includes the, sltin, the mouth cavity, the cornea LATEST TUNES Russian Diplomacy Still Is An Enigma Post War Measures Worry Washington Special to Central Frcs 8 of tho , which . has -been A hig "u'ind is blamed for the collapse of the bridge over the ^Mississippi nt Chester. 111.""\Vlui would have Hionght- that. Hitler's voice could roach so far? denuded of its membranous covering. Theoretically thinking, of all-the things which could cause such a thing, there is first mere abrasion, scratching off the surface with u. sharp instrument or burning, including chemical burns by lye. Second, infection by germs can eat off the upper . surface of a membranous tissue. Third, poor- circulation in the affected .part, as is the case in ulcers of. the skin of the legs from varicose veins. And, fourth, a cancer can appear as an ulcer. Applying this theoretical reason to ulcer of the stomach we sec immediately that some of the causes do not operate at all—cancel-, for ir.stanye, and abrasion with a sharp instrument. An ulcer of the stomach is not cancer. Some doctors have tried to prove that circulatory disturbaices tn the stomach wall, such as embolism, create a sot of lowered local resistance, but the evidence is 1 very Cause of Ulcer This leaves us with infection which is a possibility, and the eating away of a' spo't of the surface of the stomach by a chemical which we always have present in •[he stomach secretions in the form of hydrochloric acid. There used to be an old quiz question the physiology teachers propounded— -why doesn't the stomach digest itself?" They should never have asked it because they didn't have a very good answer to it—they said the life in tho stomach wall prevented it from being, digested But as a matte;- of fact, the stomach juice may sometimes digest the wall 'of the stomach, the result being an ulcer. Especially if the stomach juice is increased in amount and strength of hydrochloric acid: And here is where the war enters in. 1 One of the variations of this acid ! thcor yis that-it is pointed not, ul- j cer occurs in a nervous type of ! individual, high strung, thin and subject to nervous influences. Worry or excitement starts his stomach hydrochloric j.cid to flow- in gand this opens up his ulcer. Cases 'Amount Soldiers If so we wou'.d suppose that tho stresses of combat service would cause a good many soldier, sailors and marines to come down with stomach or duodenal ulcers. And we are beginning to 'get reports on such occurrences.- Although I must say the number of cases reported is not as high as you would '• think if the nervous, theory '•' of i causation is 100 pet- cent true. (. In a South Pacific area, during I ,1 period when strcnous fighting was going on, about one per cent of all the patients admitted to an army hospital had ulcer ' of the stomach or duodenum. About half of them, however, had a history of previous attacks. Those had an old ulcer which opened up under nervous stress. Most ulcers of this type.get well very promptly under . treatment. Most cf them are not in .the stomach but in the duodenum or intestine just outside the stomach. They arc located on a spot'where •WASHINGTON — Whither Post- War Russia?—The enigma ol Russia continues to. perplex diplomatic circles in Washington, Lon- 'don and Chung-king. Militarily the USSR has been •he most nctivo Allied nation in the i war against Hitlurism and she ap- | c pours today on the verge of achiev- j c in- her' greatest triumpns. She i stands as the first Aiied nation to invade the soil of the Nazi Reich and likewise has- become- the predominant factor in the world's hope for any early end to the live-year old European' war. ': But already, with the war' still to be won, diplomatic observers find reasons for grave misgivings in the diplomatic course that the Soviet has elected to pursue. Her ir.ost recent announcement on lies- policy toward Poland is but. a forerunner of her attitude towards post-war boundary and government problems both in Europe and m the East, .in the opinion of intcrna- national experts. They sec in the Polish policy a blandly assumes jurisdiction over serious ambiguity in that Russia 40 per cent of pre-war Poland on the unilateral assertion- that it is historically P.ussian territory, and I then asserts publicly that she stands for a "free" Poland—that is, for the ur.-anr.exed remainder. There can be found ample indications that the Russian course pur- _to accede to Russia's Polish claims. But it is beyond the realm of the western imagination to picture the English-speaking Allies capitulating to Russian rule of post-war Germany.

The tendency is for such ulccrations to heal. Mayo Clinic Treatment The important feature in treatment has recently been rc-cm- ploycd by Smith and Rivers of the Mayo Clinic. They reject all the faddy treatments which have arisen so frequently and been as frequently rejected in recent yars. The fundamental principles of treatment nre: Rest and elimination, so far as possible of the nervous factors. Diet—bland. Avoid sweet, sour, spiecd and fried foods. Depend upon milk and cream mixed—half and hair—lean meat, eggs, purecd vegetables, toast, fruit juices, cream soups. Neutralisation of excess acidity by soda and calcium carbonate or aluminum hydroxide. Elimination of infection. Perseverance in treatment — Make taking milk and cream at 10 a. m., at 3 p. m. and at bedtime a lifelong habit. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS S. J.
