A Lovelier YOM RX for Knee Problem By MARY SUE MILLER A lovely writes: Although I am otherwise trim, my knees tend to flesh. The problem never really bothered me, but now It's distressing. Grubbiness has been added to pudginess. In the wake of a suntan, the skin was left rough and discolored. I spend my life tugging at my skirts to hide the situation. Please advise me. The Answer: When the landscape needs improvement, a few grooming and spot-exercise routines make a neat Job of it. The grooming routines follows: 1. During the daily bath, lather the knees and massage with cosmetic cleansing grains. 2. Before dressing in the morning, massage the entire leg with moisturized hand or body lotion. 3. Apply a bleach cream to the knees before retiring. Now for the spot-exercises: First stand with the kneecaps pulled up and tensed, tfelax and repeat twenty tunes. Then, sitting on the edge of a chair with feet together and flat on floor, repeatedly tap the insides of the knees against each other. Continue for one minute, making the taps progressively firm and fast. Those routines may read like more work than you bargained for. But the doing is easy and takes little time. Results come quickly and are entirely satisfactory. Very soon you'll cease being a skirt-tugger. And a good thing, too, for skirt tugging is just about on a par with girdle- tugging in the poise department! LEGLIKE TRIMMERS If your individual problem is heavy legs, send for my new leaflet, LEGLINE TRIMMERS, which contains spot reducing exercises that will meet your individual needs, whether for thighs, knees, calves or ankles, <w for contouring your entire legline.

COLEMAN, M.D. Floating Bed for Heart Tests Space medicine has already made many contributions to earth medicine. One of its newest is a device for the study of the barely perceptible forces exerted by the pumping mechanism of the heart. At the University of Rochester in New York, Dr. Arthur J. Moss is taking vital measurements of the heart so delicately precise that any vibration can produce a false or inaccurate reading. Even a passing truck transmits enough vibration to interfere with the sensitivity of the instruments used in this study. Premature Aging The purpose of this research is to acquire even greater understanding in minute detail of the heart and the entire circulatory system. It is hoped that these undisturbed recordings will shed newer light on the processes that cause premature aging. Space scientists have helped to create a floating bed, absolutely motionless and free from external vibration. The bed rests on jet streams of compressed air. Heart tests recorded on this suspended, motionless bed reveal minute data previously unattainable by standard methods. Other Studies Plans are already being established to utilize the floating bed for the study of many other body functions. At first glance, space science seems preposterously distant from the health and disease of man. Yet medical scientific growth flourishes on the accumulation of all available knowledge in every scientific discipline. * * +' * Crooked Blood Vessels The carotid arteries are two of the largest and most important blood vessels in the body. Coursing with remarkable anatomical consistency through the neck, they are protected by powerful muscles. Life-sustaining oxygen is brought from the heart to all parts of the neck, head and brain by the carotid arteries. Occasionally these blood vessels develop a strange malformation. The normal, unobstructed flow of blood to the brain sometimes becomes impaired by a "kink" somewhere along its course from the heart to the brain. Possible Relationship Unexplained spasms of the blood vessels, temporary strokes and temprorary paralysis are now being studied for the possible relationship between their recurrences and kinking of this major blood vessel. Dr. John R. Derrick of Texas has been using a variety of techniques to visualize by X-ray studies any kinking of the carotid arteries. When supported by neurological examination, these studies prove that there is a definite relationship between disease and the kinking of the cartid artery, surgery can be successfully performed. A modification of a surgical technique has been created by Dr. Derrick for liberating the kinked blood vessels and re-establishing the unimpeded flow of blood to the brain. By changing the position of the blood vessel and then anchoring it firmly in 'its new site, Dr. Derrick avoids the need for cutting or replacing the kinked portion. This operation is being performed successfully in many hospitals in America and already many victims of certain kinds of strokes are being restored to good health. These columns are designed to relieve your fears about health through a better understanding of your mind and body.

MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY etc.), they must face the fact that their success or failure depends on individual performance. Emphasis is on prestige, and rivalry is often present that cannot be openly expressed. Due in part to these emotionally - charged factors, the suicide rate among doctors and other independent professional people is three times that of white collar workers. Dues friendship dls courage romance? Answer: Yes, even when not intended. A close friend of the opposite sex, simply by friendship, supplies one of the needs fulfilled by romance and thereby tends to discourage it. Other factors being equal, a person who enjoys few of the satisfactions thdt come with friendship is more vulnerable to romance than one who derives much gratification from friendly companionship. The gregarious person who has a number of very close friends has less need for romance, Are doctors a satisfied • lot? Answer) Some are, but like many other professional people engaged in work that is highly independent (dentists, lawyers, «D lutu, King Feature*. SynO.. Inc.) Can tantrums be prevented? Answer: Most childhood tantrums could be prevented. Dr. W. W. Sackett Jr., Florida pedl- etriclan, said toil cquld be accomplished by "small doses of frustration" during infancy. As reported in Science Digest (JuJy, 1963) he adviM mothers not to run, to their babied every time they whimper. He believes that many teen - ago emotional disturbances cun be prevented by training chlldwi, from Infancy, that they cannot ulwayt get "on demand" attention.
