JORDAN, M.D. One estimate has been made to j the effect that some 18 million per- j sons in the United States and Can- ; ada and about 208 million in the entire world harbor the pesky pin-worm or seatworm in their intestines. Whatever the figures, many correspondents have written me that their endeavors to push this pest out of their families almost drives them to distraction. Pinworms are more common in children than grownups, especially among those in large families or in those living in institutions. Infection is comparatively rare in families in which separate bed- THIS IS BECAUSE the worms get on the bed linen, pajamas and other clothing and are picked up by others who come in contact with such objects. When children live in an institution or dormitory, or when several use the same bedroom, the spreading of the worms from one person to another is hard The eggs from pinworms usually laid on the skin and cous membrane near the outlet of the bowel. This causes s ing. In fact, the itching bad that it prodi sleeplessness, and even convulsions. The exact diagnosis must be made by taking swabs from the place where the worms are likely to be and examining the material under the microscope.

Our statesmen and diplomats are trying desperately today to relax the tensions that accompany this titanic struggle They are trying to prevent trouble zones from igniting even in small fires, for fear even tiny blazes may erupt into a conflagration that will destroy civilization.

We must be willing to add strength to our free friends, and help them find, their own. For the saving of freedom cannot be a task for America alone. In all this effort we cannot assume we will inevitably use the force we are creating. Our goal is to prevent an enemv from usine force aeainst freedom. When we have him in that position, where he dare not risk resort to arms, we must be alert enough to recognize it. We must be ready to strike some kind of balance that will let the world live on in genuine peace. . With all our tense trials in the past decade, this goal is Btili possible of achievement.

IF AN OUTBREAK of infections with pinworms is discovered, treatment should be promDt and thor ough. Those who are merely ex posed as well as those who have definite signs of worms must be given lnmrmation on hygienic measures. Careful and frequent washing of the hands with soap and water is the most important. Once established, pinworms rarely or never disappear without treatment as many people have discovered for themselves. It looks as though it would be a long time before they can be entirely eliminated from their unwilling hosts. , So They Say The time for temporizing with communism has long since passed. . . .

First Burial in 1839... 13 Old Soldiers at Rest By ROGER THOMPSON Telegraph Staff Writer An Ogle County man has begun a project which he hopes will become a recognized historical shrine, r red W. Becker, of Rt. 1, Byron, is working to restore one of the earliest cemeteries in this area. Ve visited Becker recently, and he toid us some of the background of the cemetery and his work to reclaim it from the weeds and ravages of time. The old Brooklyn Cemetery is located on the road running north from the entrance to Lowden Park northeast of Oregon. The cemetery is about two miles from the park entrance, and is located behind the old Brooklyn School, now a residence. The cemetery dates from 1839 when Eliza, wife of Benjamin Boyce, who Ruth Millett owned the property, died. The plot Thompson was a private cemetery until 1876 when a cemetery association was formed. Burials continued until 1936 when the weeds took over. The caretaker. Douglas P. Hambell, apparently became too old to continue the work. The cemetery was neglected until two years ago when Becker took an interest in it. A year ago Caretaker Hambell died and was buried in the cemetery. Since Becker began his work, he has cut the weeds ■J FRED W. BECKER is shown as he prepares to place a new bronze flag holder on a Civil War veteran'* grave in Brooklyn Cemetery. If Comradeship Is Aim, Wives Must Do Changing Let's face it. When a husband and wife are especially companionable it is usually because the wife is willing to go along with all of her husband's interests. Occasionally there is a husband who gets interested in a sport or hobby or artistic endeavor because he v sh;>. : c 5 bird. Most of the time the man assumes that shared con, par, ion ship in marriage means that his wife will share his interests. Thai is just a word of explanation to a wife who thinks her husband is unfair because although she has learned to fish, play golf, and to enjoy going to baseball games with her husband, she can't drag him to a concert, dance recital, or art exhibit. She asks. "Don't you think he is being unfair and selfish?" HUSBANDS, WIVES MUST ACCEPT EACH OTHER Let's say instead that he is just being a perfectly normal man. He enjoys his wife's company— but only if he is doing what he iikes to do. That probably isn't fair. But that is how things are and there is no use in a woman's becoming resent ful because her husband behavei like moat men. and drawn a chart of all graves he could locate. He has assembled the pieces of shattered grave markers, and identified many of the graves. He believes 260 graves are in the cemetery. One of Becker's main interest* has been the finding of graves of old soldiers. He says 13 veterans are buried there, two from the War of 1812 and 11 from the Civil War. The War of 1812 soldiers were Leonard Loomis and Jacob Van Vleitt. Sr. The Civil War veterans were Solomon Baker, Hiram Boyce, William Boyee, Martin Crowell, Francis McCamly, John H. Miller. Thomas B. Moore, Allen Page. Jacob Van Vleit. Jr., George H. Wells and Leonard Westbrook. Two organizations have helped Becker with his proj ect. On Memorial Day a new flag, donated by Woman's Belief Corps of Oregon, will ripple in the breeze at the cemetery entrance, and each soldier's grave will have a marker and small flag. The Oregon American Legion post helped Becker get bronze flag standards for the graves that had none and secured the flags. When we asked Becker what prompted him to begin the hard work of restoring the cemeteryr. he replied simply that he enjoyed the job. and believed it shbuld be done. We think that's reason enough. He also asked us to include a .request with this article. He would like anyone with relatives buried in the cemetery to get in touch with him. Write to Fred Becker. Rt. 1, Byron, or call him through the Oregon telephone exchange.

Loftus Men and women have to accept each other a.s they are. And one thing most wives have to accept is the fact that if they are to enjoy the companionship of their husbands they will have to learn to like what their husbands like— instead ot trying to get their husbands to share their interests.
