WELL CHILD Diet Does Not Appear To Be Cause of Acne By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspciier Enterprises Assn. Q _ I have three years. I had acne for have watched my diet, washed with a germi- cidal soap and used many med- icines but nothing seems to help. What do you advise? A Because certain changes in the hormones entering the blood during adolescence is the cause of acne, many teen-agers continue to have this skin erup- tion until they are in their early 20s. Diet does not appear to be an underlying cause. Most dermatologists now favor injection of the antibiotic, tetra- cycline. Doxycycline (Vibramy- cih) by mouth has also control- led the disease in 33 per cent of those who have tried it. Both are prescription drugs. Exposure to sunlight, appli Cholera Outbreak Report Denied GENEVA (AP) The Uni- ted Arab Republic today offi- cially denied reports that there is a cholera epidemic in the Middle East country. Great Lakes Pollution Talks Set TORONTO (CP) The On- tario government announced today that officials of eight states and two other provinces have agreed to attend a confer- ence on Great Lakes pollution here Sept. 9-10. The province said governors al all eight states bordering the Great New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indi- ana, Illinois. Wisconsin and said they will either attend or send senior rep- resentatives. Others represented rail be Ontario, Manitoba, Quebec and the federal governments of Can- ada and the United States. Premier John Robarts said the conference was called to discuss "common environmen- tal problems" faced by the states and provinces surround- ing the Great Lakes. He said discussions will be held on inter-jurisdictional as- pects of air and water pollution, exchange of information, and the recent report on Great Lakes pollution by the Interna- tional Joint Commission. New Engine Developed By Rolls-Royce CREWE, England (Reuters) A prototype of a rotary diesel engine which could revolutionize commercial vehicle engines has been developed by Rolls-Royce, a company Fpoitesnian said here. Rolls-Royce developed a die- sel version of the gas-powered wankel rotary engine. Working in conjunction with the ministry of defence, and under licence from the NSU auto firm in West Germany, Rolls-Royce has been working for seven years on an engine which could combine light weight with high power. The prototypes are still being tested but the finished product may be only a quarter of the size of the conventional piston diesel and also much lighter. A World Health Organization spokesman here said WHO re ceived a cable from Egyptian health authorities asserting that an intestinal disease re- ported to have been discover- ed in the country several weeks ago "is not cholera." The cable did not idenitfy the disease, the spokesman said. I Egypt's denial followed publi- cation of reports from travel- lers returning to Geneva thai some kind of intestinal disease had broken out in the United Arab Republic and that it might be a hitherto-unknown type of cholera. SOVIET AREA STRICKEN The Soviet Union is fighting ;a cholera outbreak in its south- ern resort areas and there was speculation that it might have been carried home by Soviet military personnel returning from Egyptian duty. WHO, a United Nations agent, acts merely as a clear- ing house for information, to help member countries take speedy precautions against the threat of an epidemic. The Soviet vice-minister of public health cabled WHO here Monday about the outbreak in his country, identifying the dis- ease as a strain of cholera and claiming it was brought from abroad, but not specifying where. A Beirut, Lebanon, newspa- per reported today that travel- lers from Syria had reported an outbreak of cholera in the central part of that Arab coun- try and the start of an inocula- tion campaign. Romania's health minister today strongly denied reports that cholera had broken out there and Polana was reported to have taken precautions with respect to air travel from Egypt.

CHINA SENDS ENVOY BELGRADE (AP) China las appointed an ambassador to Yugoslavia, ending more than 10 years of strained relations during which diplomatic eon- :acts were maintained by charges d'affaires. The Yugo- slav news agency Tanjug re- ported from Peking that the new envoy was Tseng Tao, who served in Algeria. Buffalo Blood For Humans G1LETTE, Wyo. (AP) Buf- falo blood may have medical benefits for humans, Dr. Dwain Cummings of Muskegon, Mich., told directors of the Na- tional Buffalo Association. Dr. Gumming, a urological surgeon, said he has been studying the properties of the blood after learning that the buffalo has a high natural re-1 sistancc to disease. He said white blood cells from a human injected into a buffalo "developed antibodies more powerful than a horse in less lime." This meant that in serum therapy time would be saved and the chance of reac- tion to the drug reduced if buf- falo-blood qualities could be used. Dr. Cummings said much work remains to be done, "but I believe the unique quali- fies of buffalo blood promise benefits to human patients." cation of carbon dioxide snow and the use of 0.1 per cent vitamin A in a gfeaseless salve are other helpful measures. Q _ My girl friend wears bangs over her forehead. Could this cause her pimples? A It would not cause them but, li her hair is very oily, it might aggravate the condition under the bangs. (1 am a man, 74. I have been taking Hyaropr'es and di- goxin for several years. Could they cause me to break out with acne? A Digoxin is not likely to cause pimples but the Hydro- pres might. Both drugs should be taken only under careful medical supervision. Q _ What can I do to get rid of acne scars? A Tlie surgical planing or dermabr'asion with a wire brush, recently in vogue, is no longer popular because when the planing is not deep enough it doesn't remove the scars and when it is too deep it makes them worse. Masking cosme- tics now appear to be the safest and best treatment. Q I am 55. About three 'years ago I began to get pain- ful bumps on the top of my head. They last a few days, then go away but more keep coming. What causes them and what can be done for them? A This sounds like acne necrotical. The cause is not known. An antibiotic, such as betamethasone (V a 1 i s o n e a prescription item, is often helpful. Q I have heard that some birth control pills will cure acne. Is this true? A, provided you have attained your full growth, and have the approval of your doc- tor.
