Doctors Discuss Mononucleosis (Illinois State Medical Society) Suppose your teen-age son or daughter wakes up one day complaining of weakness, skin rashes and assorted pains too vague to describe. Then, after several days of feeling "under the weather," his condition worsens and he complains of sore throat, headache, slight fever and swollen glands in the neck. Worried, you call the family physician who also finds the patient to have a tender spleen and perhaps some swelling about the eyes. After prescribing bed rest, plenty of liquids and aspirin, he pronounces a fearful-sounding diagnosis: "I'm afraid your child has mononucleosis." Sounds frightening, doesn't it? Fortunately the disease is not as bad as it sounds. What is it? Infectious mononucleosis is a virus infection characterized by the presence of too many single-nuclear white cells in the blood. Though a blood test is an excellent way of diagnosing a suspected case, this does not imply that treatment of blood is necessary. Instead, mononucleosis is a self-limiting disease. Like the common cold, you get it and you get over it, with no after effects. There just isn't any specific cure. Doctors agree, however, that plenty of rest, wholesome food and precautions against complications comprise the essential treatment. A communicable disease, it Is only mildly contagious compared with measles or smallpox. Nevertheless it manages to account for a great many of infections, especially among young people such as high school and college students and troops in military installations. The prevalence pattern, with greatest frequency in childhood and youth, suggests that adults develop immunity, probably through repeated exposure. Exactly how the virus is transmitted is not known. Penicillin and related drugs control secondary germ infec- tipns but have no influence on the primary disease. Taking the ailment too lightly isn't wise, because relapses can occur. Qn the other hand, it isn't the type of ailment that should frighten anyone for it seldom ever Kills. FRED. By FRED CLAUSEN Telegraph Garden Columnist A reader wants to know what causes white wooly spots on bark and shoots of pine trees. These spots are caused by pine • bark aphids. These aphids usually appear in May and a spray of mala- thion or lindane at that time is recommended. This late in the season I doubt a spray will do any good. However, most of the spots can be washed off now by pressure from a garden hose. If you, during this last warm spell, enjoyed sitting in the shade of a tree did you make a mental note of thanks to the one, be it a person, a squirrel, or a bird, who planted that tree? And did you promise yourself you would plant a tree or two some day for the next generation to enjoy? We inherited trees, so let's see to it that we pass on that heritage. Be sure to get a copy of A&P July magazine. It will help you to identify many birds that come to your bird feeder this winter. Dear Mr. Clausen: Please give me your thoughts as to how black raspberry bushes should be trimmed. The encyclopedia says after the harvest to prune away all the old cane and cut the new cane back to 12 inches, and back to 8 inches Ami Landers when winter arrives. Some of my friends agree with this concerning the old cane, but disagree on the new cane. They say 12 inches, then eight, would be too drastic. What would your suggestion be? Thank you for your reply and also for your well written weekly column.—Maynard D. Lister. Answer: Black raspberry bear on canes from last year's growth. Fruiting canes should be cut off close to ground after harvest of crop. New shoots should be pinched "hip high." Then they will branch at top and produce more berries. If cut to 8-12 inches—no berries. * * * >'t Dear Mr. Clausen: I have hydrangeas planted on the north side, that have beautiful foliage but have bloomed once in seven years. What should I do?—Mrs. J. M. Bailey. Answer: Hydranges usually make their buds at the tip of last year's growth. However, if temperature goes down to the low 20s they are usually killed. But they are worth keeping for their robust foliage. Try a plant of "Nikko Blue" hydrangea. It's fairly new, and supposed to bloom from shoots of the current season's growth. * * * ff Dear Mr. Clausen: I have hard maple trees in my yard. They are 14 to 25 years old. I lost two last year. Have a lot of dead branches in one this year. Now one is shedding its leaves. They are not wilty on the tree, just falling like the fall of the year.—Lee Werts. Answer: This one has got me stumped. Hard maple trees that age are just beginning to grow up, and to lose two in one year is quite a puzzle to me. Dead branches should be cut off, of course. And summer is the only time maple trees should be trimmed. They don't bleed so much when trimmed in the summer. If remaining maple is worth' it, better have a treeman come look at it. * * # * Dear Fred: My Peruvian daffodils seem to be slow coming up in the spring. How can I force them into bloom by Decoration Day? This spring my African violets look sick. They do not seem to use the mois- .ture. They have mealy bugs which I have been treating. The leaves are rather wilty and sticky to the touch. What do you suggest?—Mrs. Herb Kruger. Answer: Peruvian daffodils respond quicker in spring if they have been kept rather warm over winter (60 degrees or so). Decoration Day is a bit early to get them into bloom. Most likely your violets are infected with mites. Try spraying them with African violet insect bomb which can be had at most flower shops or garden centers. * * * * Send your questions on gardening to Fred Clausen, care of the Alton Evening Telegraph. He will answer in his column. Tip Should Be a Reward DEAH ANN: I read with interest your answer to the lady who complained because her young man did not leave a tip ' when they ale out. You said , tipping is part of our system— .; a built-in custom — and that ';; many people depend on tips for 1 a living. I'm a salesman. I travel a Ann Landers, great deal and I eat out five days a week, If a waitress looks my way a couple of times during a meal, brings over the coffee jug for a second cup, or sees to it that my water glass is filled, I feel she deserves a tip and she gets it. But what about that sloppy dame who throws a sandwich and a cup of coffee at you? The one who is so busy yakking with another waitress about what a weed she was out with last night? Or the one who is too busy to notice that your fork has egg on it? Does she deserve a tip? I drew one of these floozies at lunch today. She said, "I'm going off'duty so you can tip me now!" Frankly, I felt like tipping her over. May we hear from you again on this? —SAN BERNARDINO SAM «l * t.i :;: DEAR SAM: Tipping is a built-in-custom, and many people do depend on tips for a living, but a tip should say, "Thank you for good service." It should not say, "Thank you for ignoring and insulting me." A tip is a reward, not an obligation. Every customer has the right to expect, in return for his tip, pleasant and courteous attention and reasonably good service. * » » * DEAR ANN: Why would a person go out of his way to cause trouble and dissension among members of a family? What makes an individual delight in creating unhappiness and friction among relatives? Please explain, if you can, why some people must dominate others to the point where they rob them of self-respect and confidence and virtually drain the life out of them? I have witnessed this strange behavior for over 20 years and I'm no closer to understanding it now than when I married into this family. Can you give me some insight? —UNSOLVED MYSTERY PEAR MYSTERY: Cruel and domineering people are themselves very unhappy. Contented, fulfilled individuals are willing to live and let live. They have no desire to punish or destroy those around them. The best protection against vicious, destructive individuals, be they friends (?) or relatives, is to understand such behavior and then steer clear of their punitive shenanigans. » * » * Planning a wedding? Leave nothing to chance. Ann Landers' newest booklet, "The Bride's Guide," has all the answers (from announcing the engagement to "who pays for wnat").

By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newslentures Writer This is the time of the country auction, barn and garage sale. Those drawn irresistibly to the little arrows that lead to sale sites should learn to shop fo r the-more-likely-to-be- found useful articles rather than priceless treasures. Most auction fans are intrigued by the illusive, romantic aspects of the display—that a valuable letter could be hidden in an old desk or that a horde of cash is stuffed in the upholstery of a beat-up sofa. They pay more than the object is worth with these ideas in mind. Old documents have been found in desks, and some lucky bidders have found caches in upholstery, but these incidents are rare. Some auctioneers glamorize this, aspect of bidding, and while this adds to the fun, it shouldn't be taken seriously. It's far better to keep in mind the purpose of your visit to the sale. Do you need an extra chair, perhaps one that will fill the bill until you can afford what you want? End tables? Snack trays? Picnic table? Step ladder? Tractor? Inspect these things at the sale preview. If they are not available, it may be better to skip the sale. Killing time at an auction is fun, and educational, if one can exercise self- control. But it can be an expensive pastime for compulsive buyers. Bargain-bent bidders often pass up a much-needed article because someone outbids them $5, and then go home, with a myriad of little things from Victorian bird cages to andirons, though they have neither bird nor fireplace. In the end one has "things" that one could have done without. It is true that a good investment can be made if one is •lucky enough to hit the jackpot. But it is getting harder to get a bargain 'with all the knowl- edeable people—auction deal- ers and other professionals—outbidding you. Antiques are getting scarce.
