While commander nf Cedar Rapids VFW Post 788, it was decided to sponsor a troop for mentally handicapped boys. Jim "temporarily" look over Hie troop in 1956 and have been Scoutmaster ever since. The troop is now sponsored by the Linn County Associa- tion for Retarded Children and has its meetings every Tues- day in Jim's home Karage. Troop has had as many as 20 boys at one time, and Jim estimates over (ill boys have moved through his troops over Ihe years. Some of the original boys are still active members. The troop takes part in many of Ihe cniineil activities, winning honors in Seout-0-Ramas. and Jim has spent a week in camp wilh his boys 18 years in a row.

"Is (here any way to pre- vent a reader asks. "All the men In my family are bald or balding by 50 and I dread It." Unfortunately, baldness is permanent and incurable. There's no way now known to prevent It and no one knows the exact cause although sex, age and heredity are all in- volved. "Male pattern baldness" is the most common type of baldness, accounting for about 95 percent of all cases of bald- ness in men. This type has a characteristic pattern and course that make it easy lo di- agnose. It usually begins at the temples with a receding hairline that eventually as- sumes the shape of the letter Sometimes it begins at Ihe crown, forming a bald area known as a monk's spot. Eventually the receding hairline and balding crown may meet and leave only a thin fringe of hair around the head. Pattern Male pattern baldness may begin in the early 2fls, in a few cases even in the teens. More often it's a condition of middle age, (hough a few men never lose any hair. There are only two effective treatments for baldness: (1) concealing the bald spots with hairpieces, and (2) redistri- buting the remaining hairs through a surgical procedure known as hair transplantation. Painful as baldness is for some men to accept it's even harder for the woman who has female pattern baldness. Such women usually have female ancestors with thinning nair in their family history thus the baldness seems lo be re- lated to age and heredity, like male pattern baldness. For women, too, the condi- tion is and incura- ble. Kemedy The most practical remedy for a woman whose hair be- comes excessively thin is a wig. Since wigs have become fashionable and are available at modest cost, no one will know that the wig is being worn out of necessity. Other types of hair loss and baldness also occur but they are usually temporary and are not patterned. Such hair loss may be produced by infec- tions, systemic diseases, some scalp disorders, pregnancy and certain drugs. Temporary baldness may Dr. Andelman Germans Plan National Central Heating Sysfem BONN, West Germany (AP) The Wesl German govern- menl is planning a national central heating system by the lurn of Ihe century lhat il says should save about 80 million Ions of coal a year. Thai would be 25 percent of the present ronsumplion for production of energy. Research Minister Hans Mallhocfer (old a news conference 8-1 million has been set aside for the first step of Ihe project, a "healing alias" charting heal requirements in relation lo climate conditions. presenl healing systems, con- sumer behavior and seasonal changes. This information will help lo avoid faulty planning thai would result in inveslmenl losses, Mallhocfer said. The minister said all towns with more than 40, 0110 people would be hooked in to the na- tional supply system, and il would supply 94 percent of the heat required by Ihe country. Regional plants would supply Ihe rest. Healing and electrical plants would be combined. This would permit Ihe use in Ihe heating syslem of heat from Ihe generation of power. Energy must now be expended lo cool this heal so I ha I it does not warm up rivers or the at- mosphere. Matthoefer envisaged a cen- tral healing system lhat would heat walor lo Hie boiling point and then circulate it about (he counlry. He said Ihe system could easily be converted lo use nuclear power. The minister said his experts estimale Ihe system would cost about billion and would be largely noiipolluling.
