SUNDAY, DEC. 5, 1965, Loke^ Chorles American Prts* AASC Foundation Plans Campaign Because of incrceised and widespread interest in the fledgling McNeese State College Foundation a proposal for a stepped up fund raising campaign will be presented to the foundation's board of directors at a meeting Thursday. Harry lluber, finance chairman, said the proposal will include starting the campaign early in January. McNeese graduates and friends in all parts of (he state have displayed great interest in the foundation's aims, he said. Initiated in April (his year, with E. R. Kaufman, a Lake Charles attorney and civic leader as president, the major aims of the organization are to use the fund for scholarship help, financing research projects, and for 1 engaging visiting professors to instruct in special courses not on the current McNeese curriculum. Huber said that the strong start of the foundation was accelerated by a contribution from Mrs. A. C. demons, of Jennings, an alumnus of McNeese, in the amount of $1,000. Mrs. Clemens, wife of Senator A. C. demons, thus earned the dis tinction of being installed as the first life member in the foundation. In order to become a member, a contribution of $50 to the foundation earns the donor a sustaining membership. A life membership is given for a $1,000 contribution. A founding membership result* from a $10,000 donation, Huber said. Other officers of the foundation fund are Cecil Colon, vice president; Marshall Abadie, secretary; and Arthur Lee, treasurer. YOUR HEALTH ion Can't Overtaxed By Dr. Theodore R. Van Oelkn (Copyright 1965: By The Chicago Tribune) "What is a bezoar? Our neighbor's 6-year-old daughter had been ill for several weeks. "The family doctor finally recommended an abdominal operation. The surgeon removed a ball of hair called a bezoar. The physician said the girl had been eating her own hair for years and the mass caused no trouble until it became large enough to obstruct the organ." Some children (and adults) eal the strangest things. They pay a stiff penally when thn material is not digested and forms into a bail that remains in the stomach. There are many types of bezoars. Trichobezoars are composed of hair; phyto- bezoars are made up of tough vegetable fibers such as those in persimmons. The wad accumulates in the stomach and enlarges whenever similar substances are eaten. Hair eating is more common in the fair sex because the hair is longer and more abundant. It may become more prevalent in boys now that the beatle- cut is in style. At any rate, the habit usually starts in early childhood and may continue for years before symptoms develop. Hairballs weighing 5 to 6 pounds have been removed. They are recognized when X- rays are made after the youngster swallows barium. Removal via surgery is the only cure. At one time these accumulE- tions were highly prized as remedies for fever, poisoning, snakebite, and skin diseases. They were maintained mainly from goats and were more costly than gold. Bezoars of this type resembled, but were not as solid or as heavy as stone. Some sold for §10 on the London market. Their popularity as a curative waned when smart operators began to import them from India in large quantities. Dr. Frederick" Stare of London conducted several experiments in 1715 to prove that many of the bezoars were artificial and made especially for the trade. Dr. Van Dellen will answer Questions on medical topics if stamped, self - addressed envelope accompanies request. CHEWING COFFEE BEANS S. P. writes: My daughter has a habit that has caused me concern. She chews raw coarse coffee grounds, retains them in her mouth, and then expectorates them. Is this injurious to the stomach and tissues of the mouth? Reply There is no harm unless she swallows enough to stimulate the nervous system. Chewing coffee beans but not swallowing the saliva is said to sweeten the breath. NERVOUS STOMACH M. F. writes: Can you please toll me the symptoms of a nervous stomach? Reply This condition mimics almost every gastrointestinal disorder. The victim develops abdominal pain, gaseous distenlion, belching, heartburn, nausea, I and-or vomiting. Many foods | are blamed, and the majority I take antacids by the bushel. j FAILING KIDNEYS I A. W. writes: Is uremia al- I ways fatal? I Reply j No. In uremia, the kidneys i fail to function properly and i the outcome depends upon the 1 cause. Some types are fatal, : whereas in others the uremic condition is temporary. The : artificial kidney is made to ; order for certain types of ure- ! mia. ONE TO A CUSTOMER E. V. writes: If a person has an attack of mononucleosis, 'can he be troubled again?

Ready For New Signups The Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service office for Calcasieu Parish is not ready at the present to sign ' up participants in programs authorized by recently enacted farm legislation. , Warren G. P.ickett, chairman i of the ASCS parish committee, made this announcement Saturday. He said It was in response to a number of inquiries. Programs for which signups will be conducted probably early in 1966 — include feed grains, wheat, cotton, and cropland adjustment. , Pickett said there are many details to be taken care of before field offices are in position to answer questions about how any of the programs may apply to a specific farm. When the signups do start, farmers will be reminded in plenty of time to file program applications before a stated deadline. Normally such sign- ups continue for about s i x weeks, he said.
