June and; : Ruth. 1 August's Snifflers And Sneezers Won't Get Much Aid From Science By STEPHEN J. McDONOUGH AP Science Writer WASHINGTON, Aug. 11, (£»).—If you're allergic to ragweed, you'd better either buy an air-conditioner or go on a long sea voyage. Looking forward to the hay fever season in August, Department of Agriculture scientists offer no other hope. They know of no part of the country affording shelter from ragweed, which is the principal hay fever plant of the United States. The pollen Avhich causes so many sniffles and sneezes is a grain of protein so tiny that it can be seen only with a microscope. But ragweed is one of the commonest of plants and its various species are distributed through every state and county. It is particularly prevalent in the Middle West, the great grain- producing area, where it holds back until the grain plants are harvested, then flowers and produces pollen by the millions of grains from each plant. A hay fever victim may be only mildly sensitive to the species of one area and at the same time be made violently ill from the pollen of a different species. He might find an area in which he is immune )ut in another section of the country the pollen might prove so poisonous that a few grains dropping on the skin might cause violent skin eruptions. Dr. Henry Stevens of the department's division on allergic research, brings you up to date, like this: "In studying the whole field of allergy and hay fever we are at- empting to find out just what frac- ,ions of a chemical substance like agweed pollen are responsible lor hese reactions in human beings-. "Chemists believe that when they an identify and tag such sub- tances, physicians will be able to This is the giant ragweed actually shedding pollen work out better methods of treatment." But meanwhile, the only methods of relief are to get far out at sea where little of the pollen is carried by the wind, or high into the stratosphere, -where Jew particles penetrate, to find a section of the country which has ragweed to which you are immune, or to sleep in a room in which all incoming air is filtered. Measure Is Vetoed By The President HYDE PARK, N. Y., Aug. 10.— 'resident Roosevelt let it be known ere that he was a bit irked with Congress for setting deadlines for he filing of claims or the ending f various practices and then ignor- ng or changing such deadlines.
