"Oh dear," she thought; ch what you think—bolh of you. I'll know if you're lying; so tell the truth—or else!! " "Don't worry," Gaylc said. " I wouldn't dare lie lo you aboul your work." She turned to Bart. "She means that.. If you don't like -it, ypu say so. She'll bo furious if you give her a polite compliment." The Doctor Says: BY WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Anesthesia has developed rapidly in recent years that average patient is more apt lo talk about his anesthetic than aboul his operation. Something relatively new has con added to aneslhcsia now. It s not an anesthetic' at all, bul a ay of securing muscular relax lion while lhc anesthetic is being iven. The patient doesn't know about t because il has lo be given afler ie is asleep, but Ihe surgeon app- ccialcs it because of the greater ••ase with which it enables him lo peralc. The patient also benefits n lessoned shock from the opcr - ition. The anelhelisl appreciates it jccaust with it he is able to carry he patient on higher levels of an- clhcsia wilh less harm lo Ihe pat- "cnl. This new drug is curare, which is betler known as Ihe Soulh American Indian arrow poison. LONG USED IN EXPERIMENTS Curare has been used for over 100 years in physiological expcri- menls on muscle. Anyone who has ever taken a course in physiology lias seen it demonstrated on the frog's muscle. It paralyzes the nerve ending in the muscle; even though the nerve impulses pass through the nerve, the muscle does not contract. Physicians have wondered about it for a long time, and suggestions have been made thai il might be used lo relax spaslic muscles. Bul until recently everyone feared its to.xic effects. In 1939 an explorer came back from Soulh America with an adequate supply ot the drug, as well as with specimens of the various plants which are used by the I n- dians in its manufacture. Pharmac- ologists soon developed a purified product which has a selective action on the nerves ending in muscle. Curare is nol used as a suta- slilule for anesthesia. It is always given to the ancsthelized palienl . It is apparently 1 safe when it is man 21 years old. I know I have lo go to work, but I do not like any kind of business.

If you feel thai you have a call lo be a drummer, so be il, but don't be an amateur performer. Go to work and study Lintil you make yourself a professional. Be an arlisl at it. Probably your reward as a drummer, unless you are a lop- notcher in the field, will never be very great from a pecuniary point of view, but in choosing a life work money is nc.t Ihe only thing to consider. To do the work we enjoy doing, to do the thing in which we have a never-failing interest, brings us a reward greater than any we ever find in a pay envelope. As for what career you choose, it doesn't mailer. The thing that s important is how ycu do your work. But don't think that you arc ;oing to find any career thai will je easy or full of Ihrills.
