Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 2, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 2 The Cedar Rapids Oazpttp: Fri., Aug. 2, 1974 The Investor's Guide Several Options Are Open To Those With Hay Fever] By Dr. S.L. Andi-lman season is almost here for those who suffer from hay fever. From lale summer Miriiuyh early fall, nature dumps 250.000 tons of ragweed pollen inlo the air. and millions of hay fever victims suffer sneezes, sniffles, tears and downright misery. IF you're a hay fever suf- ferer, now's the time to decide now you'll cope this season. Fortunately, there are several things you can do. First, ask your doctor alniut receiving a pollen "desensi- tization" treatment. This may relieve the symptoms when the pollen starts flying. Also ask your physician if he thinks drugs, such as antihistamines, might help you get through the season. If your doctor can't offer anv By Oswald James Jacohy "Nice play, partner said West.

South had two ways to make his contract, but neither in-, vohed early trump play. South needed to do some ruffing first. One line would be to set up dummy's clubs. He would cash his and dummy's king, ruff a club, enter dummy with a trump, ruff another club, lead his last trump to dummy's tjiioon. draw West's last trump and eventually concede two diamond tricks. The olher line was to go right after diamonds. He would lose incks to the ace and king and then ruff a low diamond before drawing trumps and taking the res', of the tricks.

Get a good supply of reading material, some xames and friendly com- panions and stay indoors with lir conditioning. This helps Dr. Andelman isolate you from pollen in the outside air. Get Away If the indoors'isn't for you, take a vacation where ragweed is scarce or nonexistent. San Francisco, the beaches of Florida, the northernmost tip of Maine and the coasts of California, Washington and Oregon are excellent places for hay fever sufferers to spend this dreaded season. Anyone who suffers from it knows hay fever is an allergy. Curiously, it has little to do with hay or fever. It has much to do with ragweed. When a person sensitive to ragweed inhales some of its pollen, the body produces specific an- tibodies to fight the invader. When pollen and antibodies meet, it's believed a substance called histamine is released in certain cells uf the body. Histamine causes the small blood vessels to dilate and their walls to become more permea- ble so that an increased amount of body fluids can leak into nearby tissues. This results in an outpouring of fluids, runny eyes and nose and sneezing. Treatments Treatments for hay fever generally begin several months before the season. The patient is given injections of pollen or its extracts in small amounts to improve his body's natural defenses. Dosage is gradually increased until the body builds a shield against the action of the pollen. Once patients have been through the treatment, they are desensitized for that par- ticular season. Patients who haven't been desensitized are often helped by antihistamines which relieve the symptoms caused by pollen. Cortisone and olher steroids have also been found useful for severe and stubborn cases. However, since these drugs are potent agents that can cause side effects, doctors weigh their use carefully. That's why your doctor may prescribe air conditioning or a vacation for vou. Dr. welcomes let- ters outlining problems he may discuss in future columns.
