Written for NEA Service The amount of sleep needed va- ries greatly in different indi- viduals. It is determined largely by habit. When elderly patients are forced to stay in bed longer than is necessary, they become nervous and complain of insomnia. This is explained bv the fact that the nvernpn person i3 fairly regular in hia sleep hab- i t s, and any change from his WM. A. O'BJUEN routine is up- setting. Inability to sleep well for a few nights is not an occasion for alarm. Drugs should not be taken unless they arc absolutely necessary. Deterrents Differ A cup of tea or coffee with the evening meal does not interfere with sleep, except in occasional instances. Elderly persons who consider that ten or coffee is keeping them awake should dU- nontinue the suspected beverage foi a while and note the effect; if they sleep better without it, they should not go back to it. Many elderly men find tobacco helps them to relax. A pipe or cignr nl'ter nil evening meal, when a person is accustomed to its use, will help to relieve tension. an evening nap interfere with sleep? No. Many elderly persons have the habit of dozing after they have eaten, then of spending n pleasant evening read- ing before retiring for a good sleep. A daily walk is one of the, best means of promoting sleep, for mild fiilifrup is necessary before sound sleep comes. A wnrm hath, n game of cards, or soothing music is also helpful. Many elderly persons fail to sleep well because they have no consuming interest. Some of the CIO Lawyer Will Talk Here Tonight Lindsay Walden, legal counsel for the Oil Workers International un- ion, will be one of the chief speak- ers at the general meeting of the Texaco group of Locnl 23 which is called for tonight at 7 o'clock in the armory, Ray Andrus. chairman of the workmen's committee for the group, said today. Walden came from union hcadcmarters in Fort Worth to attend the meeting. In announcing the forthcoming meeting Saturday, Andrus said the subject under discussion would be "action to be taken relatives to NIP wage-contract negotiations now tin- der yny." He leported "very little progress" had been made iii a se- ries of over a two- month period. The union, a CIO affiliate, is ask- ing a cost-of-living adjustment of wage scales, plus several contract revisions. Jaycee Board Is To Meet Friday Night Officers and members of the hoard of directors of HIP Junloi Chamber of Commerce will hold their monthly business meeting Friday night nt the home of Mnyo Wells, president, it was announced today by Lcroy Mahancy, scni-ptnry. A dinner will be served nt 7 o'clock, prior to the business meet- c. Mahanev said The monthlv business meeting of tho Jnyocos will be held Wednesday at the JC club at p. m., Ma- haney said. USAAFandRAFTo Interchange Men LONDON, Jnn. 2 British Air ministry announced to- day that the initial interchange of personnel by the RAP force and the U. S. Army Air forces will in- volve from 30 to 40 officers and enlisted men from ench country. Tho exchange plan is to 'be initiated in the near future. The ministry said that eventually the number Involved in tho exchanges will probably reach 100 from each nation, Dcst-adjusted elderly persons I know are actively interested in everything about them, while some of the poorest sleepers are those who spend extra hours in bed because of boredom. Lying awake at night is not harmful, fc.- the mind is not af- fected by insomnia. Worry Prevents Sleep Going to bed with a problem on the mind is the usual cause of wakefulness. One successful man found his answer to slepple.ssnftss by spend- ng one liour each night in study. This was followed by hnlf an houi spent in reading about current affairs, after which he devoted a few minutes to going over 'one of his favorite books. If he went to bed at a reason- able time, after following his eve- ning schedule, he round thai ho had restful, dreamless sleep nnd woke the next morning completely refreshed. As we grow older and fewer demands are made upon us by a competitive world, we should de- vise a schedule for ourselves which 'II keep us- fairly busy. Every- one should spend from 30 minutes to an hour a day in complete re- 'axation. and ofr older persons the best time for this is immediately nfter the noon meal. QUESTION: Can a gnstric ulcer 01' duodenal ulcer eventually be- comp cancerous? ANSWER: A duodenal ulcer never becomes cancerous, and only occasionally change into tient should does a cancer, report any change of gastric ulcer An ulcer pa- symptoms to his physician, for he may develop a eanrer which is independent' of his ulcer. Blum Depresses Prices in France By LEON PEAKSOX PARIS, Jan. 2 Leon Blum's decree for a five per cent cut along the line in consumer prices was officially promulgates today, greeted bv popular approval from the political right to left. The 74-year-old Socialist acted ti reverse the rifling spiral of prico.i free merchandise hoarded foi greater profits and bring pricf drops that would "greatly exceed the legal reductions." Press Supports The press gave enthusiastic mip- port to Blum's "price but manifested a tuucli of skepticism. The. Popular Republican Move, nieni'a L'Aubre called on all par- ties nnd organizations to aid tho all-Socialist government. The rightist L'Aurorc nuirl Blum had addressed himself to "the In- telligence and goodwill of the pro- ducers." Franc Tireur, pro-Communist or- gan, asked, "Is this price decrease and answered. "Yes, it is." More skeptical, the Communut daily, Ltlumanite. said, "Good in- tentions are not enough, addin, that minimum wage demands al- ready advanced by the Confeder- ation of Trade Unions muot bo met. Glimmer of Hope The independent newspaper coin- hat called the plan "n glimmer of hope." There were indications that If Blum's "psychological shock" in the campaign against inflation suc- ceeds he may be called on tD re- tain the premiership. Informed sources said that if this prospect materializes Blum may demand n meaning: one oosed entirely of Socialists as in .he present temporary cabinest.
