week and nol en a golf course but he says there will be no announcement Instead hell do Jack Bennys routine only Im going to go to By RON KOACM HOLLYWOOD AP Bob Hope grudgingly admits hes pushing 70 but he doesnt act Science Briefcase Enterprise Science Xexvs Although 41 years have elapsed since Vitamin C was identified the amounts needed for human health are far from certain Plus For Pauling Linus Paulings statement that humans need 10 times that specified by the Food and Nu trition Board has raised the roof of the medical community The assertion has also sent biochemists to their laboratories to bear it out or negate it scien tifically One researcher reports findings in a recent issue of Proceedings of The National pregnancy are sometimes born addicted to those drugs A re searcher at New York Medical College suggests that metha done may do more than addict unborn children Alfred A Smith who has previously found that metha done prevents limb regeneration in salamanders told the meet ing of the Federation of Ameri can Societies for Experimental Biology that meithadone retards the growth of baby mice by as much as 42 per cent Newborn mice were tested because at birth they closely approximate the later growth stages of other mammalian fe Academy of Sciences that notices Half of each Utter tested only support Paulings assertion but carry it further injected with methadone other half was injected ManLi S Yew of the Univer sity of Texas at Austin tested guinea pigs for the effects of vitamin C on growth wound healing and resistance to surgi cal stress He found that 5 milligrams per 100 grams of body weight IJci giaiio ui uuuy t daily was necessarv for the aniopened uat nr mals to grow well heal quickly and recover from stress Small er amounts of vitamin C did not do the trick Larger amounts did not seem to offer any advantages Extrapolating these findings to children on a bodyweight basis he estimates they need milligrams of vitamin C Smith admits there may be a different effect on humans bui cautions against giving metha done to pregnant women be cause of potential harm to the fetus Endangered Species daily Yew concludes The enor mous discrepancy nearly 40 fold between this amount and that recommended by the Food and Nutrition Board calls atten tion to an important public health problem related to the best development of young peo pie Heart Attacks The American Medical Asso ciation reported several months ago that heart attacks in wom en under 40 are up 14 per cent David Spain of the Brookdale Hospital Medical Center in Brooklyn has found on the basis of autopsy studies that 20 years ago men under 51 were 12 times more vulnerable than women in the same age but be tween 1967 and 1971 the ratio narrowed to four times as vul nerable Researchers in other coun tries are getting similar results In the past women below the menopause have not been very susceptible to heart attacks probably because of hormonal protection So why the increase now Spain thinks it is because more young women are smok ing Estelle Ramey an endocri nologist at Georgetown Univer sity agrees You virtually never see inyocardial infarcts in women who dont smoke be low the age of the Other investigators blame the increase on the use of oral con traceptives This is the prevail ing view at the National Heart and Lung Institute A pill Theres
