I)!-:A|{ UKADKK The prominent bulging of the <•>•<•« you are deftcribfng Is <«>«• of the romplfrfltlons Of an overactive thyroid. Jt Is not clearly understood and the treatment Is not entirely satisfactory. Most rases recover with no residual damage to the ••yes. Some still have n slight Increased prominence of the eyes after th<« episode has passed. The eye changes may disappear gradually af. ter the overactive thyroid is under control. There IK an Inflllnition of white cells Into the tissues behind the eye and this nren also accumulates fluid. As he swelling progresses behind the eyt»s, they are literally pushed out. Vour husband may find that sleeping with the hc/id of the bed elevated will help diminish the swelling. Swell- nil? usually increases In any part of (he body th,, t | s | cvc j with or below the heart level. With the head of the bed elevated, there will be Jess tendency for fluid to accumulate behind the eye during sleep. The eyes can fw protected with rold salt water compresses at night, and they do need to !*• protected from light and dust particles with well-fitted sun glasses ff other measures are needed, I'm sure your husband's doctor will advise you on them. Weight loss with an overactive thyroid is common. Kv«?n if the person eats an enormous amount, the metabolism of the body cells in speeded up so much that weight loss occurs. Irritability is also a feature of the disease. Fine hair and hair loss may occur. Almost all of these signs will disappear once the thyroid activity is reduced to normal levels Surgery is sometimes done In overaclive thyroid cases. Il is of questionable value though in treatment of the eye disorder that concerns you. Present thinking Is to treat the overactive thyroid condition adequately, protect the eyes as needed and in most cases the problem of the eyes will respond well, Your husband can have n normal life expectancy if his overactive thyroid Is controlled to normal levels of activity He may be less inclined to have the ordinary forma of heart disease from fatty-cholesterol deposits in the arteries because of his weight loss from his thyroid condition. Acne is a common problem and many old treatments are more harmful than helpful.

LAMB - My daughter, age 32, takes about 14 vitamin pills a day including Vitamin E. 400 units; Vitamin C, 500 mg. ; carrot oil capsules; natural Vitamin I) supplements; K liver and yeast with B-12- supreme 50 Super B complex; boric meal tablets 10 grains; and cod liver oil capsules, She claims it gives her energy. She works and takes care of a child and home. Hecently she was very depressed. She couldn't sleep well. Could taking so many vitamins pep her up so that she couldn't sleep? Is it harmful to take so many? DEAR READER - If she is eating a well-balanced diet, she shouldn't need any vitamins. In her age group, in the child-bearing years, she might need some extra iron, but that should be it. Interestingly, despite all these useless vitamins she is taking, 1 don't see iron on the list. She might be getting too much Vitamin D, as she is getting it in cod liver oil and the natural vitamin D supplement, plus other foods she should have to make up a well-balanced diet. Vitamin E in large doses has been reported to cause a sensation of extreme fatigue and depression by some people. ' I doubt the vitamin pills have caused your daughter to be depressed. Rather, 1 would guess that her life situation causes her some anxiety which is why she wants to take something in the first place, and that the sleeplessness and taking vitamin pills as a crutch may both be a psychological response to her total life situation. If she is not fating a well- balanced diet, I would have no object ion to her taking one economical all-purpose daily vitamin with iron. I am sending you The Health Letter number 4-6, Balanced Diet, Recommended Daily Dietary Allowances iKDA), which will provide a table and information on what the daily requirements are and what foods contain them. Others who want this information can send 50 cents with a long, stamped, self- addressed envelope to me for it in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, NY 10019. DEAR DR. LAMH Recently, I had a "strep throat." My doctor took a throat culture and it was positive. He gave me penicillin and got a negative •"turn. Then he asked the ' my family to come in ' cultures and he uld ' - s . .HJ.-;. 's and were treated. He requested a urine sample from the three of us, once every week for a month, and once a month for five months as a follow-up. He said it could show up in later years if not treated now. I simply want to know how necessary this is as we know others who had it and their doctors did no follow-up DEAR READER — A ''strep throat" to caused by bacteria, and it is contagious. There is no harm, and a lot to be said for checking the other family members. The person who harbors the dangerous kind of streptococci may in the course of time develop rheumatic heart disease, which shows up years later. A strep infection may result in nephritis. Your doctor is simply doing a thorough job, and you should be pleased Uiat he has taken that much interest in preventing you and your family from having serious problems at some later date Night 8:00 Over E««y 2-0 News 3-4-«-lI-12 Mary Tyer Moore 10 Bewitched 5 6:30 MucNeD-Lenrer Report 2-9 Bewitched 3 Adam-12 5.7 Hogan'n Heroes 8-11 Brady Bunch 4 CroM-Wita 6 Andy Griffith 10-12 7:00 Gunsmoke 5 GomerPyle 8 Washington Week In Review 2-8 Donnyfc Marie 3-7-10 Hall of Fame 44 The Nutcracker 11-12 7:30 Doris Day a Wall Street Week ^9 8:00 Special!!!!! % 700 Oub 8 Visions 2-9 Movie 3.10 "A Secret Space" Rockford Files 4 National Finals Rodeo 6-7 8:30 House Without a Christmas Tree 11-12 9:00 Quincy 4 9:30 Bible-Pat Robertson 5 Beat of Ernie Kovacs 2-8 10:00 Metroplex Newa 5 Jimmy Swaggart a Dick Cavett 2-9 News 3-4-6-7-11-12 10:15 Movie 5 "The Flight of the Phoenix" 10:30 News 2-9 Movie 3 "The Notorious Landlady" Johnny Carson 4-6 Gunsmoke 7 Mash 11-12 11:05 Movie 11:05 Movie 11-12 "C.C. and Company" 11:30 Movie 7 "Holiday Affair" 11:40 Movie IQ "The Devil at 4 O'clock" 12:00 Midnight Special M 12:30 Movie 3 "Die!

West has it and it is curtains for the opposition. Now Jet's see what happened to Sumner. We keep getting questions as to when a card is deemed to have been played. The question may be a close one since, in general, a card is played by a defender if detached from the hand with evident intention of playing and held so that partner may have see/) its face. In other cases a card is definitely played when placed face up on the table even though the man playing it lias kept his hand on it. •NKWSIMI'KH KNTKKI'KJSK A.SSN i i For a copy ot JACOBY MODERN. send $1 to 'Win at Bridge, care ot this newspaper P Q BOA J6'9 Radio City Station.
