Dr. Samuel A. Corson has found that some patients with psychiatric disturbances were able to establish a relationship with dogs, and then transfer that relationship to humans. Many of these patients were previously unable to enjoy a relationship with other persons. Dr. Corson said, "Some of the results have been startling. Patients who have refused to leave their beds, even to eat, began walking and grooming 'their' dogs. "Best of all, they soon made the jump to communicating with other people and some very - troubled patients have been discharged after what is now called "pet-facilitated' psychotherapy." Dr. Corson and his wife. Elizabeth, believe that dogs can be a great help in keeping patients interested in the things around them. They recom mended the use of animals in psychiatric institutions where the number of therapists is no always sufficient. The Corsons speculate that 'it could be a means of socialization and it might help cut down on the dosages of drugs." This is a fascinating idea and llustrates how constantly doc- ors are on the alert to explore every possibility Â· for thÂ» patient's advantage. An enzyme, derived from luman urine is being used to ,reat blood clots in the veins, in the lungs, and in cose cases of coronary heart closures. Dr. Maurice S. Mazel. of lhÂ» Edgewater Hospital in Chicago; ins been using the enzyme, urokinase, to dissolve ' blood clots (em'oolisms) in the blood vessels of trig legs, the lungs and the heart. The results have created a tremendous amount of interest in the potential of this enzyme. At the present time, the drug is still classed as "experimental." When studies with regard lo the complete safety and valua of this enzyme are completed, Dr. Mazel will present them to the Federal Drug Administration for permission for its use. My dad is over 40 and has a wonderful physique-- all six feet of it- -except for several spare tires around his middle! The root of his difficulty is, plainly, he eats too much!

I love my father too much to see him ruin his health. -- DAUGHTER OF AN OVERWEIGHT DAD Daughter: The mid-40 bulge: sometimes eating is just an excuse for nothing better to do. Why not get your dad interested in a hobby. Or take up golf tennis and drag lim along? Or as a family gift, uy him a membership to a health spa or gymnasium?
