BeriberiDisease Not Uncommon In America BOSTON, Mass., (Science _ Service.)—Beriberi, a dietary 'disease generally associated with the Orient, is "probably not an uncommon disease in the United States," two Detroit physicians have reported. However, from the few reports on it in the current American medical literature, it apparently Is rarely diagnosed. In the United States, beriberi is primarily associated with alcoholic patients, according to Dr. Paul L. Wolf, resident, department of pathology, Wayne State University Affiliated Hospitals and Dr. Murray B. Levin, resident, department of internal medicine. City of Detroit Receiving Hospital and Wayne State University College of Medicine. In two instances of Shosh'in beriberi described by the doctors in an article in the New England Journal of Medicine (June 30) both victims had foregone food for liquor for a period of days. In one case, where the disease was recognized and thiamine therapy applied, "the patient made a dramatic recovery." Failure to diagnose the other case resulted in death 5'a hours after admission to the hospital. The reporting doctors consider the disease in its alcoholic manifestations "a medical emergency" to which more attention should be given so that diagnosis and treatment may be applied in time to prevent fatalities. Beriberi is an ancient di- Sun-Dried? Business Center Is Needed For Housewife By RUTH MILLETT Years , ago I wrote that it was a crying shame that in most homes the housewife doesn't have a desk and file cabinet or any place to put one. At long last the decorating magazines have come to the same conclusion and are now stressing the fact that somewhere in the home, in the kitchen, master bedroom, living room or hallway—a woman who runs a home and keeps track of a thousand and one details of family living ought to have'a desk to call her own. Running a home is a business and the woman who is responsible for seeing that it runs smoothly is an executive. How can she expect to be businesslike—if she doesn't have some kind of a business-like setup? Along with the desk where she can sit down to make her telephone calls, write out menus and grocery lists, keep up with her correspondence, pay bills and balance the check book she needs a good filing system.

I know this isn't the worst thing that could happen to a Riri. bu( it is a problem. Can you help? TERRY DKAR TERRY: I'm glad you realize this isn't the worst, thing that could happen to a girl. Since the embarrassment is acute only when you go to a drive-in ask Jerry if he can work out double-dates with someone who has a sedan.

This aunt put on a show at the funeral that Katherine Cornell couldn't match'. F,veryone knew he was a perfect saint for putting up with her horrible temper. My uncle liked me very much and always said he wanted me to have his gold and emerald cuff links which belonged to his father. When I told her about this she said she never heard him mention giving me the cuff links, but she offered to sell them to me for $75. My parents are furious but they are willing to buy them if you say It's the thing to do. I have $30 saved and would be happy to put that amount toward the cuff links. What do you say? NEPHEW DEAR NEPttttW: It's very generous of your parents to offer to buy the cuff links, and 1 think you're nice to want to chip in the $30. 1 say go ahead if the cuff links have deep sentimental value. In the years to come you'll be glad you did. * * * * DEAR ANN; I'm heartbroken. My sister had a baby girl after 10 years of marriage. She and her husband were so thrilled to have been blessed with a child after they had all but given up hope. Yesterday the doctor confirmed their suspicions. The little girl is totally blind. Where can we find words to console them? Please, Ann, tell us what we can say to these distraught people In their hour of darkness. Is there any word of encouragement at a time like this? WTTHOUT WORDS DEAR WITHOUT WORDS: Buy the parents a copy of "The Life of Helen Keller." At the age of 19 months, this truly remarkable woman was stricken with an illness which left her not only blind but deaf. She graduated from college with high honors and went on to be one of the most brilliant and productive women of our time. Today at 79, Helen Keller is still doing a marvelous job for the blind all'over the world. Her life's story is an inspiration for handicapped people everywhere. * * * • If alcohol is robbing you or someone you love of health and dignity, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Help For The Alcoholic," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a large, self-addressed, stamped envelope.

Don't Overdo Youthful Look Or Actions By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Diets, hair styling, well-designed clothes arid exercise have given American wometa another 15 years of youth. Great-grandmother was considered old when she was 40. Today, things are different. And this is a pleasant thing to see. A lively concern for one's looks is unquestionably healthy. But when it becomes the sole interest in living or when it produces kittenish airs of a Brigitt Bardot then it's time to call a halt. It's fine to look and be attractive within the scope of your years. But don't try to turn back clocks to'the day when you were 19. You should have grown beyond this by the time you're mature. Tint your hair, yes, and diet by all means. But leave the shrill giggling, the, fluffy ruffles and the youthful mannerisms to the youngsters. The patient, also a teacher. Is in her mid-20s, single, and, In the late morning, just before she fainted, she had complained of intense hunger, palpitation, weakness and fatigue. She had lost consciousness In the ladies' room. Her friend had summoned help. But now, your patient Is again alert and she gives you the rest of the story herself. For the past three years, she has had spells similar to this one but none quite so severe. These attacks occurred usually in the late morning or late afternoon but occasionally came on in the evening about 9 o'clock. In most of these attacks, she noticed first that she began to perspire, felt weak and tired and even noticed that her face blanched visibly. Sometimes there would be a sense of loss of contact with her surroundings and a shaky feeling inwardly. On some occasions, her head would race wildly for a few moments and, at other times, she would experience some blurring of her vision. These "spells." as she called them, usually lasted 15 or 20 minutes. Although she "almost blacked out" several times, she never really actually lost consciousness until this morning. Her spells were worse when she was physically tired or emotionally exhausted. At first, about three years ago, she consulted a physician but, later, fearing that she might .have epilepsy and that this might cost her her teaching job, she tried to fight these spells her own way without medical attention. Gradually, she found from experience that if she could take a hot cup of tea, her spells might be milder or blow over entirely. Today, at school, she had no tea and so could not control her spell. Admitted to Hospital You decide to admit the patient into the hospital for further study. Blackout spells may be due to a great variety of different conditions, ranging from simple hysterical or emotional states to major pathological conditions of the heart, blood vessels, or brain. Since the problem is a potentially serious one, it is best handled in the hospital. As you examine the patient in the hospital, you find that her health appears excellent even on the most careful examination. You notice that she blushes frequently and, even after her facial blushing disappears, but the blush per- sugar and now you have the answer. Her blood sugar Is about half the normal amount. She is suffering from a condition known as spontaneous hypoglycemla — or low-blood- sugar disease. Opposite of Dtabetet Spontaneous hypoglycemla is, In a sense, exactly the opposite of diabetes. In diabetes, the amount of sugar circulating In the patient's blood is too high and this Is usually due to the fact 1 that the pancreas, the gland In the abdomen, is working below par, manufacturing less insulin than normal. In spontaneous hypoglycemia, the pancreas is usually overactive and the excess amount of insulin causes the amount of blood sugar to fall to dangerous levels. As the blood sugar drops from a normal level, nothing happens at first but, when it reaches about a half of what it should be, the patient tends to complain of weakness, fatigue, pallor, headache, hunger, sweating, numbness, double vision, incoherence, and dls- orientation. When the blood sugar is about a tenth of normal, the patient may faint, have convulsions, or even go Into coma. For her acute attack, you allow the patient to have some sugar. In the long run. however, it's best to provide the patient with a diet that is high in protein and low in sugar at first so as not to over-burden the sugar-controlling mechanism of the body. Some medicines may be used to supplement the dietetic therapy but treatment with diet alone usually suffices in most cases. Her own treatment with tea had been so successful because she always put sugar in it. In eight days, you discharge your patient from the hospital, happier in her knowledge that she has low-blood-sugar disease and not something more serious. With continued care and dieting, it is likely that her condition will improve over the years. © I960 N. Y. Herald Tribune. Inc.
