D. THE PAINTER WHO COULDN'T PAINT "The patient in this bed," says the Medical Resident, "we believe, has angina pectoris but his case is not completely worked up. The facts to date are that he is a fifty- three-year-old house painter who has been having pain in his left shoulder and left arm, radiating to the tips of his fingers for the last six months. This pain is aggravated by work and sometimes is so severe that he cannot hold his brush while he is painting. "We took an electrocardiogram when he was admitted four days ago but it was normal. Another electrocardiogram taken yesterday was also normal." You question the patient further about the relationship of his work to the onset of pain. You discover that most of the man's difficulties arise not when he is painting walls but when he is painting ceilings or whenever he is doing any overhead work. There? have been some occasions, in fact, when, after thirty or forty minutes of overhead painting, his left arm (the patient is left-handed) would become so numb that the brush would actually drop to the floor. On several occasions, this had proved embarrassing for he could not give his fellow-workers any explanation for this seemingly irrational behavior. You check the man's pulse in both wrists and find that. when the patient's arms are by his side, both pulse beats are full, equal and strong. When you hold the right arm up over his head and turn his neck to one side, the pulse is equally full and strong. But when you do the same thing with the left arm, the pulse quickly vanishes. Now you are on the trail of the correct diagnosis !

A careful study of the routine chest film shows that the heart is normal in size anl shape. Furthermore, both lungs are clear. But high at the top of the left lung, a small rib is present, extending down from one of the neck bones. Ordinarily, there are no ribs on the neck bones or cervical vertebrae. This patient has a cervical rib, an unusual developmental condition. Now the answer to this painter's problems is apparent. When he raises his left arm to work overhead, he pushes the collarbone up against the first rib and compresses the blood vessel going to the arm between the collarbone and rib, like a vise. It's much as if one squeezed or pinched a water hose to diminish the flow. In his case the blood stops flowing into his arm, much as if someone had placed a tourniquet above the elbow. The fingers get numb and tingly, strength vanishes, and the paint brush drops to the floor. Other Causes A cervical rib is not the on-, ly type of abnormality that can cause this condition. Other causes are abnormal thickening of the neck muscles, arthritis of the neck bones and even some tumors of the lungs. At any rate, it is a mechanical problem, unrelated to the heart, and, since it is a mechanical problem, it has to be treated by mechanical means - surgery. The patient is referred to the surgical service where, a tew days later, an exploratory incision is made in the neck just above the left collarbone. The enlarged cervical rib is easily found. By moving the patient's arm under anesthesia, the exact site of compression of the artery by the rib is detected and SAVI10% tf 40* On CJcuui Ofgmf gimnaU Urgaoi eVFjaoo.

Elected as delegates to the convention to be held in Chicago in August were Mrs. Earl Henson, Miss Dorothy Henson and Mrs. Neunaber as delegates; and Mrs. Ralph Drury, Mrs. Duff McBrian and Mrs. Frank Hart as alternates. Miss Fannie Ullrich, department past president, will also attend. A joint installation with the Forty and Eight will be held at Granite City on Aug. 26. Hostesses for the dinner were Miss Ullrich, Mrs. Phillip Kaeser and Mrs. Harry Mahoney, Homenwking Hints Old crayons your children used may be good for scratch repairs. Rub the proper colored crayon into the scratch, to blend with the rest of the wood. Smooth the surface and spray with shellac from an aerosol can. the rib is then cut away so as to prevent its causing any further pressure. In twelve days the patient is discharged from the hospital with the great likelihood that he has been cured of his so- called "heart disease." After he is told that his heart is normal, he admits to being relieved of his own anxiety about his heart. HP had. himself, for a long time, secretly suspected that he had a heart condition but had kept his suspicions to himself. © I860 N. Y. Herald Tribune, Inc.

Recently you printed a letter from a woman who was unhappy berause her bridge club arrived 11 strong in their spike hprls and ruined her vinyl vestibule. I Just finished reading an article In a magazine which revealed some shocking Ini nfo r m atlon. You may want to pass it along to readers. The article was Ann Lftflifara. called "Girls, You're Ruining The Rug." 1 quotes "The stiletto heels dig down into the carpet, ruin the pile, puncture the backing, and eventually produce holes. On vinyl, asbestos or rubber tile they are even ,worse. leaving pock-marks that won't disappear. One testing firm found that a 112 pound woman In stiletto heels exerts static pressure of 4,000 pounds per square Inch every time she takes a step. A 224 pound man wearing conventional shoes exerts 24 pounds per square inch." You're supposed to be smart. Ann Landers — what's the answer? BAFFLED DEAR BAFFLED: If you think American women are going to switch to army shoes just because spike heels are making holes in the nig and ruining the vinyl vestibule — forget it! The style-conscious female will do as fashion dictates even if it means ragged rugs and craters in the rubber tile. Women have demonstrated that so far as THEY are concerned, style is of paramount importance. Not only is practicality tossed to the winds, but human comfort doesn't count lor much either. ' The new trend in women's shoes Is higher heels and more sharply-pointed toes. For women with one toe this is fine, but for those of us with the normal number, it's rough. I have no suggestions on how to save the floors and the rugs but I would like to suggest to thousands of limping ladies that they can save their feet by buying shoes larger, even if it means going up a whole size. » * • » . DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm 20 and going with a fellow eight years older. I'm very much in love with him and have reason to believe he feels the same about me. I just found out that he's been married and divorced. The information didn't come from him. A distant relative of mine who lived in the same town with the fellow told me. I can understand how a person might make a mistake and T wouldn't have held it against him if he had told me himself. But I'm sick to think that he had tried to hide it from me. Shall I keep this to myself and wait for him to tell me on his own? We've been dating almost seven months. Or shall I just break up with him? DANVUJLJTE DEAR DANVILLITE: He's entitled to a chance to confirm or deny the story. Maybe he has a cousin by the same name. A fellow who dates a young woman for seven months and conveniently forgets to mention he has been married and divorced is a little kinky. Be- ware. * * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: My wife and I have been married five years. She couldn't find enough housework to keep her busy so she went out and got a job. This was February 16th. She hasn't come home yet. Do you think maybe she is working overtime? MIAMI MIKE DEAR MIKE! I don't know about your wife but it's a cinch YOU'RE working overtime trying to be a regular gosh-darn- it. I wish you clowns wouldn't waste my time (or your own) with these tired jokes. I've had the full circle. t * * * * Are you tempted to smoke because the crowd does? If so, send for ANN LANDERS' booklet, "Teenage Smoking," FashionsGtitter And Gleam For Fall n.t JOV MILLER NEW YORK ff— Another day of viewing vast collections of glitter gowns, and American fashion writer* might start showing up In sunglasses. It would be a sensible precaution at that. The climax of nearly every New York designer's collection shown the fashion press so far this week sparkled with blinding brilliance. What makes it an occupational hazard worth the risk Is that the fall clothes are worth blinking at. Ingenuity, good taste and glitter seem to have been lavished In equal proportions. Ceil Chapman is a case In point. Her dresses at Tuef* day afternoon's showing were all that knowledgeable women have come to expect from her: exquisitely wrought creations that dress up a woman to meet the big events in her life, or simply to stagger the stage line.' Her afternoon and evening clothes made use of the lowered waistline, yokes, floating back panels, hipbands for an easy, lowered, elegantly feminine look. The 1%0 "Venus dress" had more than one touch of refined seduction in its darts and folds strategically placed in a long piece of fabric draped around the body. Her "phantom" silhouette reached its height in a black evening dress of wide-flaring tiers of shadow lace. And her colors, in tropical orchid shades from greenish brown to crimson, were exotically adaptable. But it was her glitter gowns that got greatest applause. With Miss Chapman all that glitters is not gold. It's more likely to be silver, which she prefers, or silver and crystal bugle beads. Beauty Tips Best method for keeping legs and underarms summer pretty is to dust them lightly with talcum powder, then use an electric shaver that can be adjusted for use on arms and legs. Good grooming pays off in any career. A clear, well- scrubbed skin, shining hair, fresh neat clothes, well-manicured nails — these are valuable assets in any job.
