MONDAY, AUGUST l f I960 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE ELEVEN YouVe the Doctor By Joseph D. Witmemug, M. I). DEAFNKRft AJTD A reader in Evanavlll*, Tnd., who slims her name simply Ann wants to know about noises on the right side of her head just behind the ear. These noises, she says, are "a roar- ln<? pound In right ear and a bu/zing In the head." She is 34 years old, is overweight, and has "bad teeth." She had her eyes tested, wears glasses, but the noises have persisted. She states that she has "head colds" all the time and wonders If she might not have an infection of the sinuses or a catarrhal condition of the ears. Dear Ann: The cause of buzzing in the head and noises in the ear may be difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to treat. Since the buzzing fn the head is often associated with deafness and dizziness, It is best to discuss these three conditions almost as one. Let us consider deafness without dizziness first. This problem may be solved by simply having a doctor look into your ears. Many a person has walked into a doctor's office suspecting that he has been growing deaf with agp only to find that his deafness is quickly cured by the removal of wax from the ears. Implie* Serious Problem Generally however, a buzzing in the head implies a problem dpeppr than' wax. It usually means that there is something going on either in the inner ear or in the brain close to the hearing center. If you have had a recent virus infection, such as mumps, measles, or even a bad cold, this may cause some degree of deafness and buzzing. In older persons, the sudden loss of hearing may be due to a clot or spasm in a blood vessel close to the hearing center. A careful examination is necessary. Sometimes the doctor may actually have to listen to your head with a stethoscope. If the inner ear becomes waterlogged and swollen, it causes dizziness or loss of hearing or both. This may come on without any apparent reason (Meniere's disease) or may follow the administration of some antibiotics, such as streptomycin or dihydrostrep- tcrmycin. Even simpler medicines such §* aspirin or quinine may cause a buzzing In the head, either when the done Is large or If a person happen* to be sensitive to small doses. A careful ear examination, particularly with an audiometer Is distinguished between nerve deafness and conduction deafness Is Important trt investigate the condition further. When deafness, dizziness and ringing In the ears come all together, it means that the Inner ear is affected, either by infections or by some other condition. In Meniere's disease, there is swelling of the inner ear. Some cases of Meniere's are mild but in others the dizziness Is so severe that It is Impossible for the patient to stand up. Ear specialists can usually diagnose Meniere's disease by audiometry tests and other special examinations; but not all cases of deafness with diz- xiness are due to Meniere's. In some, deafness and dizziness are brought on by an acute infection of the inner ear which clears slowly and may last for weeks. Dizziness without deafness or ringing in the ears without deafness may be an even more difficult diagnostic problem. It is important, here, to distinguish between true dizziness and liRhtheadedness or faintncss. True dizziness (vertigo i moans that something is spinning, either the individual or his environment. Seasickness offers a uood illustration of true dizziness. If deafnesv is absent, the sensation of dizziness may be brought on by many general conditions and not only by tipper Alton News Events (jodfrry Man's Miss Kramer Retires at Western ,keley Ave.. remains in traction at after p.m.. at the Westerner Club grounds. | Henry St. by St., \vas listed bv police as the' by St., was listed by police as the /- R amai .Lp f | driver of the machine whose ' ar "a""*' KPfl brakes fafJed.

He was brought minedly toward her in a body She took a step backward and said "Oh dear." This, from the poised and regal brunette beauty, meant she was a pretty uneasy mezzo soprano. She was the first American singer to perform behind the Romanian Iron Curtain, more rigid even than the Soviet Union's. She was portraying Carmen as a sexy, seductive wildcat; Romanians always gave the role an unrealistic, formalized treatment. And, as everybody knows, opera singers come temperamental in any nationality. The chorus closed in. The men seized her. Hoisting her to their shoulders, they paraded around the stage with shouts and applause. At the opera's end, the audience stood on seats to cheer the Metropolitan Opera star. Crowds followed her blocks back to the hotel. The Romanian Artists Guild gave a dinner for her. The Romanian Carmens forgot all about being prima donnas and begged the tall, shapely diva to stay and teach them her realistic interpretation. That happened two months ago. Now thinking it over in New York, the week in Romania only strengthened her conviction that what this country needs Is a ministry of culture to help spread the word that Americans are anything but Philistines. "We don't brag enough," she insists. "The Metropolitan i« the finest opera company in the world. We have two or three symphony orchestras that are as fine as any anywhere." A permanently established Department of Culture in the U. S. government is vitally necessary, she says, both for foreign opinion and domestic efficiency. "Our undersecretary of state for cultural matters itn't the land, Central and South America, the Soviet Union, the Far Easf. Europe, and most recently Yugoslavia and Romania. "Maybe the way I feel has something to do with being a first generation American," ponders the onetime Canton, Ohio, secretary. "My parents rame from Sweden and I was brought up tremendously impressed with the privilege of voting and the responsibilities of citi/enship. I've been called a flagwaver, and I admit it. But honestly now, what's wrong with waving a flag you love?" Mind Your Manners If you would like to create a smooth complexion look for summer, use foundation makeup and powder, then remove the excess powder with a face powder brush. Dampen a cotton ball with skin freshener and gently pat nose, forehead, cheeks and chin. Let it dry naturally and a delicate sheen tone will appear.
