(UPI) ^ Firemen today fought for the second day to control a blaze in the huge U.S. Military Personnel Records Center, which houses the records of 56 million former servicemen. The fire broke out just minutes after midnight Thursday on the top floor of the six- story structure in suburban Overland. It appeared to be coming under control in late afternoon, Judge Rules Youth Must Stand Trial CHICAGO (UPI) - A juvenile court judge ruled Thursday that Count Spencc, 16, charged with the murder of a visiting Wyoming rancher, should be tried as an adult. Spence is charged in the June 13 shooting death of John Bruegger, 47, a Wyoming rancher who was shot when he and three friends parked their camper truck on a South Side street to glance at a road map. He died in Mercy Hospital on June 24. Spence was arrested two days after the shooting. "I know for a fact that my son did not do this thing," Spence's mother, Mrs. Flossie Spence, told newsmen after Juvenile Court Judge John P. McGury ruled that "prosecution of Count Spence under criminal law will be allowed." Mrs. Spence said she was "disappointed" toy the judge's decision. After the ruling Thursday, Spence was taken to a small room adjoining the courtroom, where he was seen with his head resting in his hands —in obvious contrast to the happier mood he had displayed earlier in laughing and joking with a probation officer. New Postmaster ALTONA — Mrs. Harlan (Patricia) Lundeen has been appointed Altona postmaster, Employed at the Altona Post Office since October 1971, Mrs. Lundeen has been officer-in charge for the past year. She [has lived in Altona 11 years. when it was contained on the sixth floor, but flames as high as 40 feet shot up again by nightfall. Most of the records were stored on the sixth floor in boxes. During the flight the fire broke through the roof and spread from the top floor to the fifth and fourth floors of the two-block-long building. How extensively the records were damaged was not clear, since the heat today was still preventing investigators from assessing the damage. FBI agents were called in to investigate the blaze. Jeffrey P. Hillelson, regional administrator of the General Services Administration, which owns the building, said about 12 small fires had been set in the building in past years. In Washington, Donald E. Johnson, head of the Veterans Administration, said the loss of records might affect some servicemen applying in the future for benefits for disabilities connected with their military duty. But it would not affect any of the 13 million veterans and deperidents currently receiving VA benefits, he said. In addition, Johnson said some key backup records of periods of service and character of discharge were available elsewhere and could be used to help reconstruct the informa­ tion needed to rule on claims. Servicemen's private records plus the recollections of those who dealt with them could also be used, he said. The records are Used for Veterans Administration and Social Security benefits, discharge certificates and other purposes. Spokesmen said no pay records for those presently in the armed forces and no armed forces active duty files appeared to be involved. However, the records may include those of Vietnam veterans. Defense officials in Washington said the files:,; "are tentatively identified as 'World War I and predominantljf"Navy World War II records," dating back over 25 years. William Stender, assistant archivist for the National Archives, said many of the records could be reconstrlicted.

Phantom Limb Pain Is Puzzling to Doctors . By ELDON BARRETT SEATTLE, Wash. (UPI) The "phantom limb" phenomena is a very real thing, although the leg or the arm the patient "feels" has been Science Today Dr. Ronald Melzach, a professor of psychology at McGill University in Montreal, explains that persons with phantom limbs continue to feel pain but physicians do not yet know the reasons why. It is not uncommon for a woman with an amputated hand to reach for a glass of water with the hand that is no longer there, or for a veteran with an amputated leg to get out of bed and expect to take steps. About 10 per cent of persons with amputations suffer from what physicians call phantom limb pain. The subject was discussed at length at an international symposium here recently. Mysterious Memory System "Phantom limb pain is characteristically very persistent, lasting for decades in some patients," Melzack said. "We have to begin looking for mechanisms in the nervous system which may cause this pain to continue for so many years." He said such pain is more likely to occur if a patient has had pain in the arm or leg before it was amputated. He told of a man who had a painful splinter in his hand. A week later the patient was in an automobile accident which cost him that hand. After amputa­ tion, the patient continued to feel pain caused by the splinter. The fact that pain is so long lasting and occurs most often in persons who have pain in a limb later amputated suggests that some mechanism in the nervous system has a memory for pain. "We don't yet know where this memory system occurs," Melzack said, "but it is something which must be studied." Two Treatment Methods Another problem associated with phantom limb pain is the fact that stimulation of areas far from the stump can evoke pain in the phantom limb. For example, a girl who lost her arm in a bicycle accident and had phantom limb pain said the pain was intensified when pressure was applied to the opposite shoulder. Melzack said there were tnvo opposing methods for treating phantom limb pain. One was to reduce pain by blocking it with local injections of an anesthetic into the stump. The second method is to intensify the patient's pain at the site of the amputation by pounding the slump with a rubber mallet or touching it with an electrical charge. In the first method, the"relief often lasts for many days'.'.while the actual anesthetic is dissipated within the body in a few hours. The second method intensifies the pain for about 10 minutes but then the phantom pain disappears, often not returning for many months. NEED SIDING? Wc Install All Kinds Vinyl, Steel and Aluminum.
