THE DOCTOR SAYS Electrocardiogram Monitors Heart Victim's Recovery By WAYNE Q. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Assn.' Q—Why does a doctor want an electrocardiogram every two to four weeks when he doesn't give me any medicine for a heart condition? A — T h c electrocardiogram greatly amplifies and records the electric currents that are associated with the muscular action of the heart. Abnormalities of electric conduction in any part of the heart cause characteristic changes in the recorded waves. This makes the ECG especially valuable in diagnosing different kinds of disturbed rhythm and damage to the heart muscle caused by blocking of one of the coronary arteries. Unfortunately, an ECG can in no way be used to predict a coronary heart attack but, after such an attack, it is of great value in following the progress of recovery. For this reason, a series of ECGs would be requested. If you have had a coronary attack you will have had a period of bed rest with gradually increasing activity. Drugs are useful for some' aspects of the treatment following an attack, but in many. patients are not essential. Q—What causes stones to form in the salivary glands? What can be done for them? A— Salivary stones are caused by obstruction of the salivary duct, usually due to infection. The obstruction may cause the gland to swell. Occasionally the stones may pass from the duct into the mouth spontaneously, but more often they must be removed surgically. This is a relatively simple operation. Q—What is morphea? What is the best treatment for it? A—Morphea is a localized form of scleroderma, a chronic disease the cause of which is not known. Certain areas of the skin become thick and hard. If this is a hairy area the hair is lost. The small veins of the skin may become prominent. The disease may persist for as long as 10 years. As it progresses there may be some involvement of the internal organs. For this reason, your doctor should give you an ulcer diet and acid-neutralizing medicines in order to prevent a peptic ulcer. The treatment is medical—not surgical—and relies chiefly on adrenal steroids such as prednisone and predisolone. Q—I have had multiple sclerosis for almost 20 years. My left leg is so weak it bows outward when I put my weight on it. Would a brace for one or both my legs help me walk? A— In persons with multiple sclerosis improvement sometimes occurs spontaneously, but you can't count on it. Meanwhile, mechanical aids should be used. An orthopedic surgeon or a specialist in physical medicine should be able to see that you', get the kind of mechanical aids best suited to your needs.

FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY BOTRUFF Auto & Cycle Sales HONDA SALES & SERVICE 2200 E. Main St. Galesburg By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP)-Moves to strengthen the American dollar are scoring some initial successes in world money marts. The dollar has advanced slightly against the Swiss franc and the German mark. A greater score has been made against the British pound sterling which has dipped to a two-year low in terms of American money. While the U.S. Treasury gold stocks have shrunk a little more this summer, Britain's gold and convertible currency reserves also fell in August, off about $19.6 million. None of this necessarily forecasts any great upsurge in the dollar's position. Nor does it cause any real alarm in European money capitals. It does show the close ties between Western currencies and economies. Some Britons in particular are saying that the efforts to strengthen the dollar are the cause of the pound's weakness, temporary as they expect it to be. It's a neat trick to strengthen one country's position without weakening another's. That's one reason so much interest is attached to the meeting in Washington later this month of the directors of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, charged with policing the financial dealings of the Western world as well as encouraging their economic growth. Europeans have been watching the American financial moves. First was higher interest rates to keep lendable American dollars at home. Second was the proposal, now being debated in Congress, to tax American purchases of foreign securities from foreigners, with the same goal in view. Since American capital has been the great pool from which Europeans could draw since World War II, any drying up of these available funds will be felt. The British pound this week dipped below the official rate of $2.80 to the American dollar. Part of the decline can be traced to Britain's balance of trade problem. British imports have been rising and now top their exports, thus weakening the pound. Much of this is seasonal, representing purchases of raw materials. But the British blame part of the fall on the American financial moves.
