Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 20, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 4yV    Cedar    Rapids    Gazette:    Wed., Mar. 20, 1974 Predicts No Renewal Of Economic Controls Jewish Leaders Cancel Meeting Due to Security WASHINGTON (AP) — The administration’s attempt to retain partial wage and price controls after April 30 may be dead in the house, according to house banking committee Chairman Wright Patman. “Any hope for passage or even committee action appears to be dim, if not dead,” he told the house Monday. Rep. William Widnall (R N.J.), the ranking Republican on the committee, declined to introduce the administration’s bill. Compromise Bill In the senate, three members of the banking stabilization subcommittee have agreed on a compromise bill that would ex-i tend controls temporarily and establish a mechanism bv which controls may be reimposed only if criteria establishing “serious inflation” are established. For Better Heal til Ringworm Is Common Infection By Dr. S. L. Andelman His hard to imagine, but few people manage to live a normal lifetime without ever becoming infected with one or more types of ringworm. That’s probably because there; are so many types, including athlete's foot, ringworm of the scalp; of the hair or beard; of the body; of the nails, and jockstrap itch. Ringworm is caused by dermatophytes, fungi that draw upon the 6kin for nourishment. Most fungi grow on dead matter, and the dermatophytes feed Dr. S. L. Andelman on the dead cells that are constantly shed from the outer skin. On rare occasions some of these fungi may attack live tissue that has been altered by a1 systemic disease. There are many species of dermatophytes — a fact that is very important to the patient and to the skin specialist, or dermatologist. A remedy that will kill one species may have; no effect on another. Amateur diagnosis and treatment can be very frustrating and even harmful. It’s best to see a doctor. Ringworm can be treated in several ways, depending on the type. Griseofulvin is a useful antibiotic for many types. Orally It is taken orally in tablet form and passes through the body to the skin where it apparently interferes with reproduction of the fungi. This drug is quite effective in treating ringworm of the body and scalp, is somewhat helpful in ringworm of the crotch, but isn’t so effective in cases involving the feet, hands and nails. The drug should be taken only on doctor’s orders since there may be side ! effects. Most ringworm aL*» responds well to topical applications keyed to the specific dermatophyte causing the disease, j These may be applied in powder or cream form. Tolnaftate, one! of the newer drugs of this type, is valuable for conditions that don’t respond to griseofulvin. Other preparations often used contain sulfur, salicylic acid and benzoic acid. Potassium permanganate is used in minute quantities in cold-water soaps; for ringworm of the feet. Keeping the akin clean helps, but too much soap or scrubbing may| cause irritation. Treatment Treatment for ringworm of the scalp includes cropping the hair around the lesions. Hair in the infected areas usually grows back after the fungi are elimin-j ated, but some hair loss may be permanent. Dermatophytids, which are related to ringworm, are skin lesions caused by an allergy or sensitivity to the fungus, although the fungus itself may not J be present in that precise place : For example, a person with ringworm of the feet may develop dermatophytids on the palms or fingers, with an itchy rash or perhaps small blisters. I The remedy is to clear up the foot infection, ♦ * * Dr. Andelman welcomes letters outlining problems he may discuss in future columns. He regrets, however, he cannot per- j sonally answer mail.

The second facet of their proposal would set up specific criteria to be met before controls can be reimposed. Counterfeit $750,(HK) BANGKOK (UPI) - Thai police seized $750,000 in counterfeit U.
