Honey for Hay fever dear or. Steincrohn my grand daughter has Hay fever very bad for two years. Her Mother gives her two table spoons of Honey three times a Day. I feel she needs something else. What do you say Denver. Answer lately Honey has been recommended not by doctors As a treatment for Many conditions. This is the first time i have heard that it s also effective in Hay fever. There is no medical basis for this treat ment. In this instance Honey is pleasant to take but does t help More than sugar pills. I suggest you have your family Doc Tor or an allergist diagnose and treat your granddaughter. Dear or. Sell Crohn will you simply please what the choices Are in treatment of overactive thyroid mrs. A.a., Atlanta. Answer after carefully examining his patient the doctor will decide which of the following is Best suited operation thyroid medical treatment with pills that diminish the effect of thyroid Over activity end treatment with radioactive iodine. Dear or. Siel Crohn i am in my Early 50 s and for the past month have experienced Sciort periods of extreme warmness perspiring All Over particularly Over the upper pan of my body. This occurs approximately 10 to 12 times a Day and two. Or three times a night. Approximately live years ago i had a Hysterectomy but never had any it. I will appreciate your comments. S.b., Boston. Comment most women who have had similar symptoms immediately make a diag Nosis of the menopause and that would be my first guess too. But better have your doctor make the decision. If you Are going through the change he will decide whether to have you go along being uncomfortable with these hot flashes or to will prescribe hormones to reduce your discomfort. I m All for hormones to relieve the excessive perspiration. For some reason there arc doctors who advise their pall nos to fight in out without treatment until the symptoms Wear off. Dear or. Steincrohn several years ago two yellow jackets bit me above my right Eye within minutes the Eye closed and the Side of my face swelled. The pain was excruciating. A neighbor heard my screams and moan ing As 1 ran indoors. She brought of All things snuff. This was a remedy handed Down in her family. It was kept in the medi Cine Chest for that one purpose. Within the hour Afler a wet application the pain and swelling were gone. Previously Honeybee stings put me in bed for a week. Now i carry cigarettes at All times just in Case. Your recent column riving instruction on what to do for Bee stings is Loo complicated. Mrs. V. Me., Portland Ore. _ comment with your history you take your life in your hands by not guarding against Tho next sting. Complicated or not forget about 1he tobacco and snuff cure and get to an allergist for desensitization against slings. He will also give you medi Cines for use immediately after being stung. As i said this May save your life whereas you Gamble with Tho snuff treatment. Kell n skin Tinam a ital Al. Nyht your heart 1 a nimble i will null ii to you on of and id 5 or Luigi in. Raqueal Lour. , this news per. Virginia Ray just in the family mail to tots column docs not Al ways follow a pattern. Did i say always i should have put it this frequently goes off on unexpected tangents sometimes in areas of modes and manners but today in the realm of teen age fashions yet for an authoritative answer to the following i went to a fashion expert dear miss Kay Mother and i have a problem for you to help us with. We both read your column and usually agree with you. I am 16. Unlike most girls my age i Wear my skirts an Inch below my Knees. I do not think Shorter skirts Are attractive. Also unlike most girls i do not like to go Bare legged or Wear Bobbie socks. I prefer know i sport socks or full length Hose. Mother says i should not Wear knee i socks unless i am wearing shorts or dresses at or above the Knees. 1 do not show Bare Knees unless when i sit Down. She Leils thai when Bare Knees Are not always in sight that it makes me look too sexy or Forward. She was my age girls rolled heir Mieir Knees but their skirts were Long. Girls who showed Bare Knees were considered sexy or Forward. I cannot Knees resulting from knee highs should be any More sexy than the same Bare Knees resulting from wearing Bobble socks or going Bare legged. Can you explain this to me or if you agree with me can you give me some arguments to use with Mother. Please do not Rusc my name As i do not wish to be laughed at by friends i would thank you for any help you can give me. Miss 16, Pasadena dear miss 16 a Young woman who deals with teen age fashions told me that she agreed with you in your feeling that it was not being sexy to have Bare Knees that your Mother is Correct As far As her fashion sense goes. The once he socks belong with shorts with Outing Type clothes or with a dress which is very much country in style and material. Sho agreed with you in liking skirts an Inch below the knee but Lor Winter likes full length nylons and for summer can see no reason for not following the Bare legged Vogue or Bobbi socks for Active sports. So miss 16, this opinion was Given so much from the Angle of what seems for Ward or sexy but what is smartest and fashion right for the teen Agar or even the Young College girl.

Ruark this menu madness i have been casting around considerably lately for a Job to occupy my spare time in what they Call the Golden years and i think perhaps i be found in teaching a mail order course in menu writing which May bring us out of the Thomas Wolfe phase of pm purple grocery prose and Back to the sparse or Dashiell Hammett school. Litiere seem to in two decided1 trends in menu writing today. One of course is the fancy sch Muncy european style of either hand scribbling illegible hieroglyphics in faded purple Ink on old kleenex or else sinking the culinary signposts so deep in the menu s Nap that you have to pick them out with a Fork and hold them to the Light to discover what the chef is Mal treating that Day. This is not so bad because you can always ask the waiter to ask the chef what s Good and Hope that you Don t receive the answer Joe Mitchell got one time Lor asking that same question. The waiter came Back and said the chef said the chef says nothing s no but that is another Story.
