BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. Q What are the charac- teristics of an alcoholic? A An alcoholic may show several of the following: Often loses time ffom- work, neglects his family, has periods of great remorse about liis drinking, gets into financial difficulties, turns to low companions in an inferior environment when drinking, drinks in the morn- ing, drinks to escape from wor- Big Contract For Pollution-Free Engine Datsim Signs SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) Signing of a multi-million-dollar contract for mass production of a pollution-free, Freon-powered engine for Datsun automobiles was announced Tuesday by Wal- lace L. Minto, a Sarasota re- search scientist. Minto said the engine, per- fected after three years of full- time work by his Kinetics Corp., would produce a "breathable exhaust." The contract calls for delivery of a demonstrator model within six months and a production prototype in 18 months. Minto said the engine could be used in a few 1972 models and produc- tion would step up rapidly after that. Nissan Motor Co., producer of Datsun, purchased only Asian rights, Minto said, leaving him free to negotiate agreements with North American and Euro- pean car makers.

It also is used as a cooling agent in re- frigerators and air conditioners and a pressure agent in vaporiz- ers. In Minto's engine, the liquid chemical becomes gas after heating and drives the engine. The gas then goes through a condensing unit built into the roof of the car, returns to liquid form and is used again. Cardston Woman Injured SHELBY, Mont. (AP) Robert Purcell, 32, of Kevin was fatally injured when the car in which he was riding ap- parently went out of control and overturned in a ditch just north of Shelby on U.S. 91.

Two other occupants of the car, Jess Labuff, 50, of Shelby and a 40-year-old Cardston, Alta., woman, Connie Wetzel, suffered minor injuries. ry or responsibility, often drinks alone and is careless of his appearance. Q _ My husband, 59, has been a heavy weekend drinker for 30 years. He now com- plains that when he drinks his hands swell so badly he can't make a fist. Why is this? A This is not a common symptom of alcoholism. It sug- gests some deterioration.of the heart and circulation and should be taken as a warning to find a new weekend hobby. Q can one possibly avoid alcoholism if he takes a drink or two very day? A By making them small and allowing at least an hour between drinks. Q I have been giving my husband disulfiram (Antabuse) for several weeks but he is still drinking. How long does it take for these pills to work? A The initial course is one full tablet a day for two weeks, after which half a tablet is given. Since anyone who is taking tins drug is made very sick by drinking alcohol, I doubt that your husband actual- ly swallows his pills. Q What are the symptoms of liver damage caused by al- coholism? I am now an ab- stainer but am told that I have extensive liver damage. Will tests show whether there is any improvement. What treatment do you recommend? A The symptoms (not ne- cessarily present in all cases) include jaundice, loss of weight, poor appetite, weakness and waterlogging. Serum bilirubin concentra t i o n, sulfobromph- thalein excretion, plasma pro- tein determination and alkaline phosphatase level are some of the liver function tests used. When treatment is started ear- ly enough improvement is the rule. A high protein, high-caloric diet at least ICO grams of protein and calories a day with supplemental vitamin B and C should be taken. In the first few weeks faitgue should be avoided. How To Stop Smoking TORONTO (CP) If you're a heavy smoker and concerned about its effect on your health but haven't given it up, proba- bly you're worried about your weight, have tried to quit many times before, or'are frightened of suffering severe withdrawal Symptoms.

By this time, declarer had an accurate ceunt of his opponents' distribution, West fcad shown up with three spades, hearts and four diamonds. This meant that he had, at most, two clubs while East was marked with a jnunimum of four. South led; club to the Wng and returned the jack for a West produced the queen of clubs and played the jack oC diamonds forcing North to ruff with the nine of hearts. The king was cashed, but West retained the queen trumps to score the setting trick. South's counting WES accu- rate, however his conclusions were fallacious. The location of the queen of clubs was of 710 significance, for there was jio way he could ever take, jmore than two club tricks. Even if the finesse had succeeded, West would bo able to ruff the third round in any South might just as well go up with ths ace from his hand on ths second lead, Observe that even if tho queen of clubs does not fall declarer can lead a diamond next and ruff with the nine of hearts. The king of trumps produced his 10th trick and; West is welcome to. ruff thn last trick with the queen cE hearts. In all, declarer lakes two three diamonds, thrco hearts and two spade in ius hand, most common ones given for a failure to stop smoking. Mr. Ludlam and his company had watched the success of an organization in the United States, also called Smoke Watchers although not con- nected, which claimed a 97.6- per-cent success rate in helping people quit smoking. "About five out of six people who try to stop cold turkey eventually start smoking Mr. Ludlam said, "so it's obvious they need a group dynamic where they can talk their problem out."

He keeps a record of every cigarette he smokes and the circumstances that make him reach for a cigarette. Then the clinic's director sets a goal for him. "Say if he's been smoking 35 cigarettes a said Mr. Ludlow, "then his goal for that week is 30. He cuts out the cigarettes that are the least necessary." The hardest cigarettes to give up are those that go with coffee, cocktails and tension or come after a meal, Mr. Ludlam said. His company is selling the clinic franchises for an initial investment of to the 35-45 age group which makes up the majority of both buyers and users of the program. This age group predominates, Mr. Ludlam said, because they are starting to worry about their health, especially about contracting cancer. "Also, the children have been really indoctrinated against smoking as a cause of he said. "I was told the other day of a little girl who threw her mother's new carton of cig- arettes in the garbage." "There's no guarantee that our program will help someone quit smoking he concluded, "but our statistics have shown that its easier than doing it alone."
