Introverts employ CASE U-510: MiloG., aged 20, is majoring in chemistry. "Dr. Crane," he began, "what are some of the greatest discoveries in the development of medicine? "And what are some of its greatest flaws or drawbacks, nowadays?" Bravo, Dr. Jenner Vaccination (including inoculation) has saved more human lives than all other medical discoveries or drugs! Dr. Edward Jenner noticed that milkmaids who had developed sores on their hands while milking cows, later were immune to smallpox. So he pioneered smallpox vaccination. In Shakespeare's century, it was estimated that 60 MILLION died of smallpox in Europe, not to mention the greater number of deaths in Asia, etc. "But, Dr. Crane," Milo protested, "I recently reac some articles arguing thai vaccination was not only of no value, but that it even produced many diseases, including syphilis. "One British physician was quoted as unalterably opposed to smallpox vaccination for those reasons. How come?" George Washington had smallpox as a boy, for Dr. Jenner didn't expound his discovery till 1798 (one year before Washington's death ) . And in those earlier days (even in New England till about 1900), the family physicians had little concept of germ infections. So they carried an ivory toothpick in their vest pockets. They'd take it out; spit on a child's arm. cleanse the wet skin with their handkerchief; then scratch the skin with that ivory toothpick and place a drop of the vaccine on the raw spot. Occasionally, therefore, a child might thus develop some other ailment, due to contamination by the toothpick or the debtor's spit or his handkerchici. And if you will read the dale of the British doctors' attacks on smallpox vaccination, you will find such essays were usually written back in the early 1800s. Thus, it wasn't the vaccination that caused the trouble but lack of sterile methods by the 19th Century doctors. Anesthesia would also be regarded as a second great milestone in medical advancement, with the antibiotics probably ranking 3rd. More recently, the zooming field of therapy is biochemical, including the use of trace chemicals (as from the ocean water) to combat deficiency ailments. But Milo also asked about some of the drawbacks to modern medicine. One is the inability of many physicians to talk the patient's language. (Always write to Dr. Crane, Hopkins Bldg.

Veterans Should Get Release Of Liability When Selling Home Veterans Administration home loans help veterans sell their homes as well as buy them, but unless a veteran sellers gels a "release of liability" when a buyer proposes to assume his GI loan, he might have problems later on, Jack Coker, VA Regional Director, cautioned today. VA Loan Guaranty officials say such a release could save the veteran considerable difficulty and worry should the purchaser ever default on the loan contract. A veteran should request the VA office that guaranteed his home loan for release from further liability to the government before he signs the sales contract. VA may issue such a release if the loan is current and the veteran's purchaser agrees to assume all of the veteran's liabilites. In addition, the Veterans Administration must be satisfied the person who buys the property is a good credit risk, and has sufficient income to meet the payments on the GI loan. Unless a veteran specifically asks VA for a "release of liability", and gets it, he still is responsible for satisfactory completion of the financial obligation of the initial GI loan—should the new purchaser fail to make the monthly payments. The veteran may sell his home to anyone—another veteran, or to anyone who has never been in military service. In any case, however, he should ask for the "release of liability" from the VA. If the veteran's purchaser obtains his own financing to purchase the veteran's home instead of assuming the veteran's GI loan and the GI loan is thus paid in full at settlement, under certain conditions the veteran may then have his loan guaranty eligibility restored. , "Release of liability" and restoration of GI home loan guaranty details are available at any VA office, veterans county service officer, or from veterans service organization representatives. House ilnit Approves Bill On Weapons WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Armed Services Committee today approved a $21.3- billion weapons authorization bill after slashing more than $1.5 billion from original requests, including a $692 million Safeguard antimissile system cut because of the U.S.-Soviet arms limitation agreement. At the same time, Chairman F. Edward Hebcrt, D-La., announced the committee added $110 million to the bill for offensive weapon increases requested by Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird in the wake of the Strategic Arms Limitations Talks for a net slice of $582 million. Henry Kissinger To Revisit China WASHINGTON (AP)- President Nixon's top national security adviser, Henry A. Kissinger, will go the People 1 * Republic of China for a four-day visit June 19-23 for "concrete consultation*" with Chinese leaders as a followup of Nixon's summit talks, the White House announced today. Ziegler was asked if the trip was tied to developments in Vietnam. "I wouldn't relate this trip to any particular topic," he replied, noting that either side can raise any questions it wishes.
