Epilepsy is a symptom consisting of a sudden attack of unconsciousness of- len associated willi a convulsion," according to A. B. Baker, M. D., Committee on Public Health Education, Minnesota Stale Medical Association. Convulsions may be caused by a tumor, abscess, inflammation or hemorrhage of the brain. In every patient with convulsions a thorough examination is indica- led; Ihis should include special lests of Ihe brain. If no cause for the convulsions is found, they should be treated as u consequence of overactive brain celsl. CONTROLLED BY DRUGS Convulsions can be partially or completely controlled with drugs. Various drugs or combinations must be tried to find the one which is most effective; dose is regu laled from lime lo lime and new drugs substituted for those which become ineffective. Paticnls oflcn fail lo control their attacks of convulsions by carelessness in taking their medicine or because of unwillingness to lake enough. Best results follow personal supervision of drug treatment by a physician. Convulsive patients need plenty of sleep, a well-balanced regular diet ,and good elimination. Alcoholic beverages should be avoided and fluids should be restricted to the amount the physician considers advisable. An emotional upset, undue anxiety about work, a difficult home situation will pre. cipitale attacks. Medicine may Tail lo limit convulsions if emo- .ional problems arc not controlled. THRfclE MAIN TYPES In one lype of epileplic seizures. DOROTHY DIX There Is Only One Today There is one thing in life about which we should all be grabbers. We should .'seize every bit of pleasure that conies our way and make the most of it while we can get it. It is a fatal mislake to put off being happy until tomorrow because lomororw never comes. AH lhat any of us ever have is jusl today, and if we; don't get some joy out of that, we .have ;i,ost out entirely. ' •' > '•••.. This is such a palpable fact Hint it seems as if the dumbest of us should recognize il and act, upon it. Yet the' world is filled with gloomy .Guses who deny themselves every pleasure and lead hard, dull lives in the belief .that sometime in the future they will have a great time making whoopee. Which is just about as sensible as il would be for a starving man to refuse food because he expected some day to sil down lo a banciuel. HAPPINESS DEFERERS Yet we all know people like this. Perhaps we belong lo the lodge of the happiness clcfcrcrs our-selves. Certainly we sec plenty of illustrations of the folloy of pulling off having our good limes for 20 or 30 years. For the irony of ho thing is lhat if we wait loo convulsions are followed ong to eat our cake, we find we have lost our appetite for it. By the lime wo are able to buy oul a bakery wo have shed our sweet loolh and acquired stomach ulcers and are on a diet. H is a matter of common knowledge lhat our capacity for enjoyment does not increase with age. On Ihe contrary, it slumps with every year. The things that we got a whale of a kick out of doing when we were W bore us to tears when we are GO, so, why wo kid ourselves into believing lhat the longer we defer indulging ousclvcs in the things we want lo do and have, the more fun we will gel out of them, nobody Can explain., But the idea brings about situations which are comic as well'as tragic. It gives us, for instance, the hoarders who pinch and slave and deny themselves every com- forl and luxury lo pile up a fortune. They wear shabby clothes. They skimp on their food. They hop buses instead of having a car. They tell you thai they are laying up for a luxurious old age, but when age comes there is no- Ihing Ihey want lhat money will buy. And there are Ihe women who never gel any pleasure out of STOP JOHf lOtf/ n I- I Bv Lionel Copyright, 1945, v ^ Grid Bowls Today Serve Classic Games By MURRAY ROSE Hew York, Jon. 1 — (IP)— Football comes back tor n final sproo today with 13 gridiron carnivals expected lo attract close to 400,000 fans to the festivities. Far western "prestige will be at. stake in the two biggest contests as Southern California takes on the all-conquering Alabama eleven in Pasadena's Rose Bowl and the Galloping Gaels of St. Mary's till with the unbeaten and untied Oklahoma Aggies in New Orleans' Sugar Bowl. The speedy, spectacular Alaba mans, with a quick-striking offensive built around Hurlin Harry Gil- rner, are 13-rjoint favorites to humiliate the thrice-beaten Trojans before some 90,000 fans in the Rose Bowl. The 27,000 customers in the Sugar Bowl will center their attention on two widely-heralded all-America backs — St. Mary's Herman boWedemcycr and the Aggies' Bob Fenimore. With a heavier line and more reserves, Fenimore and Co., have been made a 13-point choice to tote home the pigskin for the Stillwater trophy case. The east-west shrine charity clash in San Francisco, where at least 60,000 spectators are anticipated, finds the western stars, led by durable Jake Leicht of Oregon, 1 1-2 point favorites to best the aerial-minded easterners who boast Southwest, opposed Charley Trippi and his Gc£i'i;i<i mates in Houston's Oil Bowl. A crowd of 27,000 is anticipated for this contest which may be the most thrilling of them all. Georgia is rated 5 1-2 points stronger. New Mexico is a 7-point favorite to whip Denver before 15,000 customers in El Paso's Sun Bowl. \Vake- Forest's Deacons and the South Carolina Gamecocks stage a repeat performance in the 'Gator Bowl at Jacksonville.

In the third type, the patient has spells in which he does a lot oi things which he cannot remember. Any variety of epilepsy may be sudden in onset, or preceded by a definite warning. Patients with epilepsy should be treated as normal individuals. If their attacks are well controlled, they should be encouraged lo finish school and do any kind of situations whore they might be work of which they are capable. They should not be employed in luirt or could harm others. Helium was discovered within the sun before the element was located on earth.

He was leaning his elbows on the bar staring at them with a kind of dull watchfulness in his eyes. the broad veranda and went down on to the lawn. He turned left through a croquet layout with bit; rod bows on them, •Ahead was a little flag-stoned patio with green metal tables and chairs under huge striped umbrellas. A small canopy was hung over a heavy, metal-studded door marked THE PUB, Pike went in. 11 was a friendly little nook. It had stone-topped tables and a copper-fastened bar. It had a bartender with thick, pomaded hair, who polished glasses and whistled off-key a mournful 1 i't t 1 e tune called 'Gloomy Sunday." the suicide song. Pike turned to go. VLooking. for someone?" The voice- was.; calculating and deliberate. • Pike/ looked back to exaininc its owner. He was bis-, broad and' shockingly bald. He had.' a. shining •' pink and olive complexion that. gave him a deceptively, cherubic appearance. But'- his eyes were small, black and. shrewd-. .He' said: "You're the • tie^v guest." "That's right," Pike said. "My name's B 1 a n d— Roger Bland. Sit down and have a drink, Mr. Calvin." Pike sat down. He looked at Roger Eland's thin-stemmed liqueur glass. "Cointreau," Roger Bland said. "Will you have some?" "No, thank you," Pike said. "Just a highball." "Scotch and soda?" Pike nodded. Mr. Bland said: "Luigi. Some Pinch bottle for Mr. Calvin." Hr/ turned to Pike. He smiled. It was a brittle and unilluminating smile. "Now then," he said, "who is it?" "What?" Pike said. "You were looking for someone when yon came in. Maybe I can help you. I know everyone here." Pike lit a cigaret. He drew on it, then took it out ol his mouth and examined il distastefully. There was something behind Robert Eland's casual manner. Pike said: "A girl with green eyes." "And red hair?" Mr. Bland said. "It's ouiiurn," Pike said. "He's had plenty of practice," Bland said. Luigi brought the drink, Pike paid for it, and Bland let him. their jewels because they are in a safety deposit box; who are always two years behind the styles in their clothes because they are saving their new dresses for some great occasion; who have beautiful houses beautifully furnished, but they never see their lovely drawing rooms except when they dust them, for they live in a cubby-hole in the back. But the most pitiful part ol the mistake people make in putting off being happy is when they apply it, as they so often do, to the family relationship. We see so many mothers who get no fun out of their babies, whose growing children are nothing but a-burden to them, who never even try to get acquainted with their adolescent boys and girls. They are waiting to enjoy their children when they are grown, but when they are grown it is too late. They have flown the home nest. And we know so many husbands and wives 'who really love each other and appreciate each other, ut who never show each othei any tenderness or pay each orhei compliment. They keep putting iff saying the thing that woulc lave brought happiness to a nun gry heart until they whisper into dead ears. Happiness passes your way bu nee. Grab il. (Bell Syndicate, Inc.) Pike tasted his drink. It was Scolch, but it was not Pinch- bottle. He wasn't sm-nrised. Thai was Ihe way John Clay made his money. He practiced deceptions, little and big; be bought cheap and he sold dear. But the man had grown big. He cast a huge shadow. He had influence. He was a force to be reckoned wilh. Roger Bland said: "You came up here lo see John Clay, didn't you?" Pike swallowed iiis drink and stood up. He looked at his watch again. Twelve-lhirly-lhrce. Three minutes and this; Roger Bland was dispassionately and expertly pick ing Pike's brain. And he wasn't even paying for Ihe privilege. Bland slobd up, loo. He was a good head taller than Pike and despile his bulk, he looked very agile and fit. He laid a hand on Pike's arm. "I could tell you something about this situation up here, Mr. Calvin. For example, I have a little information about Mary Butler." "Mary Butler?" Pike stared at Ihe man. "What about Mary Bui ler?" Eland's hand on Pike's arm tightened. Pike could feel the powerful fingers bite inlo Ihe flesh as Bland urged him out on to the patio. The sunlight was fresh and inviting, after that litllc dinginess behind them. Bland look out a demitasse-sized cigar and offered it to Pike. Pike shook his head. Bland pared the end meticulously with his penknife and said: "If 1 were you, I would not talk quite so freely. Possibly there are a few things you do not know." He lit the cigar, flicked the match out with his forefinger, and tossed il over his shoulder. Here everyone listens." He pulled thoughtfully on his Bland was looking at Pike oddly. His little black eyes were attentive. He said: "She's lovely, isn't she?" "Do you know her?" "A litllc. Her name is Miss Tudor. She's John Clay niece." "Whose?" Pike tried to keep his tone casual. But he leaned forward a lilllc. itartled him. The revelation "John Clay," Bland said."You know John Clay." "I've heard of him," Pike said. "Who hasn't?" Bland replied. Pike was suddenly conscious of Luigi, leaning the bartender. He was his elbows on the bar staring at them with a kind of dull watchfulness in his eyes. He saw Pike looking his way and "Mary Butler was a lovely girl, loo." "I have never mel her," Pike said. Roger Bland looked al him. Foi the first time since they had met. Pike detected a hint of sincerity in those bright little eyes. But il faded instantly. Bland said: "I think we have need of each other. I know what happened." . Pike resisted asking the obvious question: What did happen? Some unforeseen eventuality— that was a neat euphemism for it— hac changed mailers and Pike was completely in the dark. He kne\\ too little. And his ignorance might lead to a blunder lhal couk prove falal. Pike savored the adjective anc found it peculiarly apt. He said: "You keep posted." "It pays," Bland said.
