NEW CASTLE NEWS, SATURDAY, AUGUST THREE That summer cold just may be allergy Sneering, congestion, itchy or watering eyes and a runny nose could mean a summer cold. Or it could mean you are one of the thousands of people who suffer from hay fever every August and September. Up to a few years ago, said Sister Agnese Vasco, laboratory supervisor at St. Francis Hospital, the New Castle area was second in the state in the amount of pollen in the air. Since then, she said, things have gotten better. For Ihe past 13 years, under the direction of Sister Agnese, St. Francis Hospital has kept a record of the daily pollen count in the community for the Department of En- vironmental Resources and as a public service. This is done by placing a specially-treated microscope slide on the roof of the hospital each day, and examining it to find the number of pollen grains per square cen- timeter. This daily reminder of the amount of Heinz has rail plan questions BLOSSBURG. Pa. (UPIl Rep. H. John Heinz IU, H-Pa., said Friday he has "strong pollen in the air both in the newspaper and on radio, may have increased public interest. Many of the weeds have been ex- terminated. However, persons are asked to continue to look for blossoming ragweed and golden rod. Property owners are encouraged to spray these offending plants with weed killers, and to cut them down, near the root, before they begin to flower. If ragweed is observed in a vacant lot, it should be reported to local authorities who can control it. A good way to prevent the spread of ragweed is to keep a cover crop on all idle land. Grass and clover are excellent covers. Finally, persons with symptoms of summer colds, who seem to suffer only in mid to lale August and September, should consult a physician who can determine if it is ragweed pollen actually causing the problem. If so, treatments to make sufferers less sensitive to the pollen are available, RAGWEED POLLEN ACHOOOOO Mary tou Smiley of (he histology department of St. Francis Hospital, left, seems to share the problems of hundredi of sufferers combating pollen at this time each year. Here, Sister Agnese Vasco, laboratory supervisor, and Theresa Ross of the bacteriology department, see what's in the air. St. Francis Hospital has been conducting pollen counts for the community in cooperation with the Department of Environmental Resources for the past 13 years.
