By LOG AN GIVEN 1>KN'NO- M- »• The Sprained Ankle MODKRN experience willi ankle r-u'iis what. T learned oil the subject, from an old Scotch surge-on nearly forty years ago. The only improvement on the methods he used is thu injection of a local nnasthetic—procnine— into the injui'ed ligaments. In my youth during my novitiate in'mcdicinc it was a common saving that a sprain was worse llvin a fracture. The basis of this was that 11 siirain kept the viciim in bed longer ;han a I'racture, and the limping lasted -Ions' 1 ''. It didn't seem to make sense thai, a sprain, which is just a stretching and possibly tearing o: the ligaments around the ankle, could be worse than a fracture which is a break ir. the bone, but such sayings as quoted above have a way of being solemnly repeated, so they acquire the air of wisdom and riiithoriiy. 'I'ri-iLt.niciit. Delayed Krrovery \\'hat my Scotch surgical chief found out "was I hat it wasn't the injuVy itsolf but. the treatment ot sprains then prevalent that made a sprain worse than a fracture. The practice was to put tho sprained ank'.c in. a' plaster cast and liocp it and its'owner in lied for nl least, six weeks. Then when the cas:: was cut off, the amount ol' walking was very strictly limited. Later on a heavy bandaging with adhesive was substituted for the plaster cast, but the bed rest was still enjoined. The Scotch surgeon' found an obscure item in an English medical journal thai some wilful hoys with sprained ankles to which adhesive piaster had been applied had disobeyed the injunctions to slay ir, bed and had sneaked out and played tennis and that lar I'rom making their ankles' worse they were completely well and tore the adhesive plaster off at the end oC 10 days and had the unblushing nerve to go about. ;> their business with nary . a limp' from then on. It is to those disobedient boys. that the modern ankle sprain owes its rapid recovery. Of course the first stop in treating an ankle sprain by modern, methods is to have an X-ray and bo' perfectly certain that it is a_ sprain and' not. a . fracture. And then go ahead. A convincing report on over 200 ankle sprains is that of Lieut. Commander Paul E. McMaster., of the Medical Corps of the Navy. Tho -group ot his paticn'.s ho strapped with -adhesive tape and i sent immediately to duty. One group was treated by rest in bed with cold and later hot applications to reduce pain and swelling. Another group was given only an elastic bandage .''support and sent, to duty. Same Results ;. • All or 'these groups 'had ' about tho same results.. The period of disability never lasted more than a few days and the amount of pain and limping was r.ever troublesome. The best results were seen in still another group which had the procainc injection around theisore ligaments. Tho :tcndercsf spots were selected for tho . •injection. The procaine relieved the'pain In? stantly and the" subject .was'lor- dered to move around on the' foot WASHINGTON — F i: n n y, but when you live as close t.o important people .-is you ilo in Washington, you foi-gei. how important tliey are.

The one from Kentucky 1 who seems to bo son of close to tho ! president? .1 think ho ran for vice president in Chicago—do you know him?" "Know 'Alhon Barkley!" (You lack on tho first name or Washington method of celebrity calling. This always impresses the stranger.) "1 should say 1 do know Alben Barkleyl He lives in my apartment house. 1 of!on see him at tho door struggling tor a cab. He's sort of .square architecturally and in character, too. Has two pretty daughters. One married to the nephew of smart, young Washington lawyer. 'Gen. Douglas MacArthur and ihe other is the wife of -Max Truill. a Mrs. Knrkluy ls an awfully nice woman. She "has not boon too well lately." "Who else do you know?" ' "Mercy .what an order! Lot me sec. who've T run into lately? Oh. yes. Frank Murphy, of the United Stales supremo court.

"Of course, there's Arthur Vanden berg, sen'alor I'rom Michigan. Arthur' would have made n good presidential candidate. Arthur keeps on being a leader in his party. Look like? Well, he's a big follow with rather handsome. bold features and n. lot of almost white h.-iir. He has prosi5r.ce and a sense ot"hurnor. Everybody doesn't know about t-hc sense of humor. "Vandunborg and his attractive wife live in an apartment hotel. Arthur won't make any engagements for Sunday. Profers to loaf 'about the home all day. Thinking up new ways to do the New Deal in." '"I understand there arc a In: of uniforms about." You arc likely to have this mentioned by the out-of- towner. "I should sa.y so. But not half as many young uniformed men as you saw a month or so ago. Now young ones are off taking beachheads and islands. The older ones here at homo are thinking up ways of keeping the lighters going. "Secretary of Commerce Jones seems to have n. linger in every other Washington pie. Ever run into him 1 .'"

Mrs. Wilson had qui'tc a. time in Hollywood when I hi- movie about her husband was being made. She keeps far out. of sight in Washington, liven has her secretary answer many letters in the secretary's name. "Are the diplomats on view much nowadays?" Perhaps your questioner will ask this. "The South American ones are at many pleasant places. But the Ku- ropcans are living rather quietly. You hardly ever see them nny- u-hei-n.'They are probably sticking close to (.heir desks, plugging away as tho ilnal steps of the war close in. Diplomatic parties used to he the most elegant in Washington. Done with a flair for entertaining and a big expense account, they made you fel awfully cosmopolitan." "Does the president go out often?" Here is another popular question. "If he docs, few people know it.' You answer this judiciously. "Certainly the sound of sirens and the rush'of secret, service cars nnd out riders is heard on the streets far less than in peace time. No wonder presidents like to pop off to strange .countries for some reason or oilier. They are virtually prisoners in the White House." "Yet. it docs apponv lhnt mnny people .wouldn't mind being that kind of prisoner." Your listener is on the verge of taking the floor himself.
