Andclman tfvoryone has a cure for hic- cups. But many of the cures seem as pointless as the spasm itself. We know what occurs when you get a hiccup but we don't know why. A hiccup results when there is a spasm or in- voluntary movement of the diaphragm, the muscular par- tition thai separates the chest cavity from the abdominal cavity. Because mo.-ement of the diaphragm is one 01 the im- portant actions by which we breathe, the spasm of hiccup causes us to inspire, or draw in air. This is followed by Ihe closing of the glottis, the open- ing between the vocal cords. This shuts off the air suddenly and produces the typical "hie" of hiccups. Diaphragm The diaphragm is controlled by the right and left phrenic nerves but no one knows why I hey send impulses to produce an apparently useless jerk. You've all heard Ihe folk ways of treating hiccups. They work sometimes and don't others. One of the best cures is to breathe in and out into a paper bag for several minutes, perhaps as long as five. This increases the carbon dioxide in the air inhaled. The carbon dioxide often slops the spasm. A doctor may also ad- minister the gas in a mask in his office. Don't use a plastic bag if you do and yon cover both the mouth and nose, you risk asphyxiation. A brown paper bag is much safer. A sudden distraction of the person hiccuping often stops the spasm. Others stop when they get very involved in a conversation. Remedies Holding one's breath, sip- ping cold water a few drops al a lime, or eating a spoonful of granulated sugar works for Home people. Ice placed against the neck is another of Ihe hundreds of home remedies often suggested to stop hic- cups. No doubt Ihe allilude of Ihc person hiccuping has much In do with slopping simple hic- cups. If you should develop pcrsis- lenl hiccups that just won't respond to any of these remedies, sec your doctor. Dr. Andelman Persistent singultus, as it's called, may be a symptom of many different disorders, including those of the intes- tines, kidney, heart, lungs and nervous system.

Walton got the idea for the service more than a year ago when his wife complained about having to take time off from her job to take the couple's seven pets to the veterinarian. He sent questionnaires lo local veterinarians, kennel owners and pet groomers asking if there was need for a pet service and the response was "75 percent favorable." "The service is new and as far as we know it's ihc only one in the said Walton, who operates ihe business out of his resilience. "I'm now getting about five or six calls a day."
