BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. Q - We have installed a water softener in our home because the well water we use is very hard. Is there any harm in drinking the softened water? A-No. Since there have been conflicting reports about whether drinking hard or soft water is more harmful, I doubt that this factor alone is very important. Q-I know that chlorine is added to water to purify it but how much chlorine can the body take without harm? A - Much of the chlorine added to your water supply is used up in the purification process. The U.S. Public Health Service recommends that enough be added so that at the end of three hours of treatment the residual chlorine in the water is two parts per million and most of that escapes before the water reaches your table. Far greater quantities than are used to purify the water could be used without any harmful effect. Most of the chlorine that enters your body does so in the form of common salt. Q-What can be done for bromidrosis or four - smelling perspiration? A - This problem is closely related to excessive sweating. It is caused by the presence of germs that produce chemical changes in the sweat. Use antiperspirants and bathe frequently with a soap that contains hexachlorophene. But, after soaking, be sure to rinse off all the soap. Q-I have used an intrauterine loop for five yaers. I read recently that it could perforate the uterus. What do you think? A - Although perforations have occurred, they are rare - about one in 2,000 insertions. This method of family planning has many advantages, so pick a good doctor to perform the insertion and continue to have routine checks twice a year. Q-I am a woman, 25, and am taking Valium for nervous tension. What are its side effects? Is it habit-forming? A - The side effects include drowsiness, mental confusion, jaundice, dizziness, fatigue, blurred vision, headache and nausea. It is not habit-forming, but after prolonged use it must be withdrawn gradually. It should not be taken by anyone who has glaucoma or is pregnant riences are now more strongly felt.

(AP) - Hampered by a lack of identifying evidence, Butte police continued their search for a man and woman believed to have taken money bags containing an estimated $55,000 from the But-trey's Store in Butte' shopping plaza on Thursday. "An all - points - bulletin was put out for Montana and surrounding states," Silver Bow County deputy sheriff John Mc-Enaney said late Thursday, "but we don't know what type of a vehicle the pair might have and this hampers the search " tients and pay fees to dentists operating under the plan.

PEANUTS Man, 87, Wins Car But He Canh Drive It EDMONTON (CP) - An 87 year-old trapper from west-central Alberta, net allowed a driver's licence because of his advanced years, won an $8,000 Chrysler in a service club raffle. John J. Thors of Rochfort Air Fares Incr ease OTTAWA (CP) - The prices and incomes commission said today the new fares put into effect Wednesday by Air Canada and CP Air are within its price restraint criteria. "The net additional revenues which will accrue to both Air Canada and CP Air are clearly less than the additional costs in 1970 compared with the base period (1968)," �he commission said. North American air fares were adjusted to a basic rate of $10 for each flight plus 5.7 cents a mile for economy accommodation, with first-class fares 35 per cent above the economy rate. This meant increases on 150 Air Canada routes and decreased fares on 410 routes. For CP Air, increases apply on 19 routes. The comifission noted that the airlines face increased costs in financing new aircraft and other equipment. It said Air Canada's projected net operating income for 1970 will be only slightly higher than in 1968, though volume of revenue and traffic is significantly higher. CP Air's profit after taxes, even with the Aug. 5 fare revision, will be well below that of 1968. The price restraint criteria being policed by the commission call for keeping price increases in 1970 less than cost increases, thus putting a squeeze on company profits. Bridge, who used the nom de plume "Skins" because it takes too long to write my own name," bought about 10 tickets on the car while visiting Edmonton recently during Klondike Days. The service club had trouble locating Mr. Thors because rain had washed out the name on the winning ticket but were telephoned by the elderly trapper who checked his stubs when no winner was announced. He says he'll sell the car because "the government won't let me drive and I'd probably go right through the wall." Teaching Jobs Hard To Find NEW YORK (AP) - Thousands of college graduates are faced with the prospect of a teaching glut in the United States. An Associated Press survey shows many metropolitan areas report they have more applications for teaching'jobs than positions open and their turnover rate is declining. Personnel officials attribute the change to several factors: an increase in the number of college graduates going into teaching, higher starting salaries and an economic squeeze that has cut industry's need for scientists.' The Michigan state board of education warned that because of the oversupply of teachers it is "entirely possible that several hundred sprine and summer graduates will not find teaching positions for the 1970-71 school year." In Detroit, a board of education spokesman reported the city had 11,000 teachers and a backlog of 1,000 applicants. Marvin Davis, education department personnel director for Baltimore, said the city has three or four times as many applications as jobs available. The city has 8,500 classroom teachers. Elsie Stone of the Boston University placement bureau said she was having difficulty finding jobs for teaching graduates because a lot of scientists laid off by industry are seeking classroom work.

MIDDLE-CLASS ANIMALS Alberta-Alaska Route Urged EDMONTON (CP) - Alberta should try to convince the federal government of the need for a direct airline route between Alaska and Alberta, Opposition Leader Peter Loug-heed said today. Mr. Lougheed, who has just returned from a tour of Alaska and the Canadian Arctic, made the comment in a prepared statement. The route is necessary so the Alberta petroleum industry will not be bypassed by Alaska in favor of oil industry centres in the United States, the Progressive Conservative leader said. "Alberta is already suffering fr'om a significantly reduced investment in Alberta crown lease sales. If this is compounded by the Alberta petroleum industry not being able to take full advantage of northern development, it will be adverse to future Alberta economic growth."

Corner Drug Store Kits Presented OTTAWA (CP) - Several hundred young Canadians going to volunteer service postings all over the world will take miniature corner drug stores with them.

The kits contain these and other drug items. The presentation was made by D. H. Burgess, PMAC board chairman and president of Merck Sharp and Dohme Canada Ltd., to Dr. Edward Ragan, CUSO medical director, at an orientation course for CUS*0 volunteers at Carleton University.
