26 Salesbufg Regjste^MdiLGqlesbuf^ 111, Wednesday, July 18, 1973 Pituitary Gland Is Abnormal CAPE KENNEDY (UPtj Hie Skylab 2 launch director says there are no problems standing In the way of an on- time lift-oft July 28 for the second trio of astronauts who will man the space station for a record 56 days. There was to be no letup today in the training of Dr. Lamb By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb — I have panhypopituitarism. I'm taking thyroid, estrogen, cortisone and anild nerve pills. The medicine tends to make my stomach hurt. Would you please comment on this disease as I am not very familiar with it. I've heard continued use of cortisone is harmful Dear Reader — That big word means that you have low function of the anterior pituitary gland underneath the brain. This very small endocrine gland forms the hormones which stimulate most of the other endocrine glands. It forms a .hormone which stimulates the thyroid, two hormones to stimulate the female reproductive system, and a hormone (ACTH) wfilch stimulates the outer shell (cortex) of the adrenal gland. As a result of the problem, most of the endocrine glands in the body are functioning below par. To compensate for this your doctor is giving you extra thyroid and cortisone because these glands are not producing enough of these hormones. This is fairly standard treatment. There are several • different causes for this problem. Sometimes it follows pregnancy. In most instances, prolonged use of cortisone can create some problems. However, if it is replacement for the normal amount needed for the body, that's quite another matty. Then it becomes somewhat like giving thyroid to the person who is not forming enough thyroid hormone. Cortisone can irritate the stomach and can even cause ulcers. For this reason, doctors sometimes also give patients taking cortisone antacids and medications commonly used to treat ulcer patients. You should tell, your doctor about your stomach problem, and perhaps he will consider giving you some antacids and other medications to help counteract this problem. In the meantime, I would suggest that you desist from using coffee, tea, or the cola drinks which contain caf­ feine and, when used in excess amounts, or in individuals who are exceptionally sensitive, can contribute to burning in the pit of the stomach. Cigarettes and alcohol, of course, should also be avoided. Dear Dr. Lamb — How can an older woman be assured of receiving enough calcium if she uses but two cups (skim) milk as recommended by the Heart Association? Also some doctors recommend the use of three tablespoons of polyunsaturated oil daily for heart patients. Others dp not agree with this. What is ybur opinion? I cannot tell you what a great service you perform with your column. People are hungry for health information. Dear Reader — You have gotten some misinformation The American Heart Associa tion recommends for adults two or more cups of skimmed milk fortified with vitamins A and D This means you should have at least two cups, not that you should limit it to two cups. The important point is to use fortified skim or nonfat milk if you want to stay on a low fat, low cholesterol diet. You can use as much nonfat dry milk powder in cooking as you wish. Of course, you have to watch eating too much of anything if you're having a problem in pre venting obesity. Most heart specialists agree that calories and, hence, fat should be limited. There is no advantage in taking additional amounts of fat in the form of oil?. The diet should be planned to include foods that naturally contain polyunsaturated fats — such as fish and chicken, and using polyunsaturated oils in cooking. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Skylab 2 Director Sees No Problems for Lift-off astronauts Alan L. Bean, Owen K. Gaffiott and Jack R. Lousnia at the Johnson 1 Space Center in Houston, as spaceport officials here kept the countdown rolling smoothly. "All of our activities are right on schedule," said launch director Walter Kapryan in an interview. "At the present time there are no outstanding problems. The launch team is Welt-trained and ready to g»." Kapryan said a series of "massive" lightning strikes June 17 to the Saturn 16 rocket that will thrust the crew into orbit had not caused serious problems, and "we ... are confident that space vehicle is in as good a shape as any other has been at this stage." Launch crews this week are conducting a dress rehearsal fifing of the Saturn IB and the Apollo command module that will ferry the astronauts to the orbiting research ship. The rehearsal is to end with a mock lift-off at 7 :08 a. m. EDT Friday, exactly eight days before the actual lift-off. Bean, Garriott and Lousma were to spend today simulating the work needed to close out their eight-room apace home before they return to Earth in late September. The astronauts plan to simulate their launch in a mockup of the Apollo ferry craft nest Wednesday in Houston. The current rehearsal is the first time in the Apollo or Skylab programs that the astronauts haven't had a practice session on the pad itself. READ THE WANT ADS!

Conservationists Are Hopeful They Can Prevent Pipeline WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Senate has passed a bill designed to clear the way for construction of the Alaskan pipeline, but conservation groups remain confident they can block the project. Vice President Spiro T. Agnew cast a critical tie- breaking vote Tuesday when the Senate approved the bill, which gives legal authorization for the pipeline's right-of-way and exempts the project from the'safeguards of the Environmental Policy Act of 1969, A spokesman for the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), one. of three conservation groups that won a preliminary injunction in April, 1970, that delayed the start of construction, said that "we're disappointed but we're not finished. "We think it's obviously too bad that enough senators capitulated to the oil companies' scare campaign to pass the bill," the Sierra Club said. "But we see encouragement that in spite of scare tactics enough senators showed concern about the environmental impact." Settlers' Meeting BISHOP HILL—Bishop Hill's Old Settlers Assn. members will meet at tile Colony School Thursday at 8 p.m. Plans for the annual Old Settlers celebration Sept. 8 will be discussed. Larchland Group Holds Meeting LARCHLAND - Mrs. George Lewis, Monmouth, hosted the Larchland Community Aid Society's recent meeting. Recent guests at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Eyler, Monmouth, were Mr. and Mrs. Robert Carlson, Mr. and Mrs. EJmer Ray, Mrs. Arthur Carlson , and Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Carlson. Mrs. Francis Souther and Rita drove to Osceola, Iowa, July 7. Both groups said they would step up lobbying in the. House to defeat the bill. A Sierra Club spokesman said a court challenge would be raised if it becomes law against the provision that exempts the pipeline from environmental safeguards. "We question the legality of a law that says a court can't review a law," the Sierra Club spokesman said. Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D- Wash., floor manager for the pipeline bill, also was critical of the environmental act exemption provision. He predicted it would delay building the 789- mile pipeline to move oil from Alaska's North Slope field to the port of Valdez. The amendment exempting the pipeline from the provisions of the 1969 law was introduced by Alaska's Sens. Mike Gravel and Ted Stevens, and it passed 49 to 48. A motion by Sen. Clifford Case, R-N.J., to reconsider this action failed when Agnew voted against it to break a 4949 tie. The Senate then went on to | approve the bill, 77 to 20. Church Officers Chosen at Joy JOY - Earl Willitts, Rock Island, was elected pastor and elder of the Joy Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at a recent meeting. Others elected were Mrs. Stanley Greer, secretary and church school director; Ronald Ranney, treasurer; Mrs. Ronald Ranney, woman's leader; Mrs. Gerald Finch, music director; Ronald Williams, youth leader; Mrs. Robert Knox, publicity; Robert Knox, auditor and book steward; Mrs. Warren Hutchins, recorder; Mrs. Daniel Williams, historian; Friend Finch, solicitor, and Wesley McKay, Knox, Mrs. Ranney, Hutchins and Gregg, building committee.
