(From Illinois Medical Society) Normally a person is born with about 206 bones which, of course, do not usually break unless there is rather severe pressure or injury. However, some people have a tendency to break one or more bones by merely sneezing, and these are the ones referred to as having "brittle bones." There arc children who spend most of their childhood in hospitals .mending their broken bones because of this brittle quality. Just why these bones are so brittle remains a mystery to medical science, for laboratory tests do not indicate a lack of minerals or other substances in the body, or even a deficiency of hormones, which are chemical substances normally produced in the body. Heredity Seems Factor Even though the exact cause of this brittleness is not known, heredity seems to be a factor, since studies have revealed this characteristic in families. Bones normally have a definite quality and straighrness. In the femur, or thigh bone, for example, these characteristics provide proper support for the body. If the bone were to become crooked, however, it would break quite easily because the weight of the body and the pull of the surrounding muscles place it at a mechanical disadvantage. This is true of the normal shin bone, or tibia, and the arm bone called the humerus. On the other hand, not all crooked bones, such as bowed legs, are necessarily brittle. Many medical and surgical Favorite Recipes Mrs. Leo Hoffman, a nurse on the Alton Memorial Hospital staff, has sent us her favorite recipe for chicken-fried liver.

Phi Tau Omega Elects Miss Jim Miss Marilyn Jun was elected president of Phi Tau Omega sorority which met Monday eve- tures resulting from the brittle quality of the bones. One that often proves successful is the removal of the bone from the body. For example, a femur is removed and cut into several sections and rearranged in an effort to obtain the straightest alignment. It may be necessary to turn some pieces end for end, or even rotate them. Then a metal rod is inserted to hold the 3201 Western Ave. Also installed were Miss Kaela Moore, vice president; Miss Karen Walker, secretary; Miss Kathy Gifford, treasurer; Miss Billie Buehlman, pledge mistress; Miss Dorothy Kaestner, publicity chairman; Miss Jane Hutte, chaplain; Miss Becky Fulkerson, historian; Miss Ramarrah Moore, parliamentarian; and Miss Susan Almonroeder and Miss Bonnie pieces in line and to provide Wahl, sergeant-at-arms. a slide support so they will not break so easily in the future. Bone Returned When this procedure is accomplished the bone is returned to its position in the leg and fastened to the growing ends of the bone, at the top and the bottom. The growing ends of the bone are never removed from the body, since these growing sections must remain in the body to renew again the growth of the bone. This surgical technique brings out a new concept in that it is now possible to remove large portions of bone from the body, break them up into a new position so that it will continue to stay straight and heal solid. Advances made in this technique may lead the way to progress in helping other conditions which affect bone and which, thus far, have resisted all efforts for correction.

My grades are good and I have • some nice friends, both boys and girls. But I can't seem to break this terrible habit of lying. I don't tell lies that hurt people. I just tell lies about myself to make people think I am important or that I am leading an exciting life. It's not just that I exaggerate, Ann. Sometimes I make up complete stories about things that never happened, places I've never been and people I don't even, know. Please help me because I am getting worse. Once I start to talk I don't know where my sentences will end. I want to be an honorable and respected member of the community, but how can I be unless I stop this habit of lying? —NO LAUGHING MATTER DEAR NO LAUGHING MATTER: A person who is so frank about his dishonesty and has such a fervent desire to overcome it has a good chance.
