Frank Fontaine dinner Dec. 8 BOSTON (AP) Friends of Frank Fontaine, the one-time Crazy Guggenheim of the Jackie Gleason television show, are planning a testimonial dinner for him Dec. 8. Fontaine, of" W i n c h e s ter, repeatedly given his time and talents in benefits for others. He suffered a heart at- tack two months ago while per- forming on a television show to raise funds for muscular dystro- phy research. Fontaine was born in Massa- chusetts but his family had its roots in St. Hyacinthe, Que. His grandfather was a circus strongman and his father, Bay, sang and played a guitar and was a master of ceremonies in Canada.

Enlarged prostate dams normal flow of urine Dear Dueotor 1 have been told that I have a slight en- largement of the prostate and need the operation which is done without an incision. I was told that this operation and recuperation would mean sev- erai weeks away frOiii work. I was wondering if there is any medication, treatment, diet, exercise or daily habits that will help the above condi- tion or is the operation the only way? Dear Header The prostate gland surrounds the urethra, the tube for the outflow of urine, at the outlet of the blad- der. As the gland enlarges it compresses the urethral tube and obstructs the normal flow of urine. There are muscles in the bladder and they must con- tract, harder to push urine past the obstruction. As the condition gets worse it is not possible for the blad- der to empty completely. This causes larger and larger amounts of urine to be retained in the bladder. This leads to a feeling to urinate frequently, get up at night, with the blad- der still feeling full after urinating. Sometimes after a man with prostate trouble has pass- ed all the urine he can, a catheter Or hollow tube, can be forced past the obstruction into the bladder and several quarts or more of urine drained from the bladder. Prolonged overdis- tention of the bladder damages it, causing additional problems. Since the enlarged, prostrate causes a mechanical obstruc- tion, the only real way the problem can be relieved is by surgical removal. There are several ways this can be done, depending upon the situation. The operation mentioned here is the most likely one; pieces of the enlarged prostate are re- moved by means of an instru- ment inserted into the urethra] tube through the penis. The obstruction caused by the enlarged prostate cannot be removed by taking pills, eating special diets or exercises. Prob- lems caused by an enlarged prostate occur in most men who live long enough to de- velop it. Complete recovery us- ually takes several weeks. Hear Doctor I have been taking two aspirins a day. Will this cause any harm? Dear Header No, not un- less you are allergic to aspirin. I don't recommend taking largo doses of aspirin unless it is pre- scribed by a doctor for a spe- cific cause. Two a day is a very small dose. It is true, however, that large doses of aspirin de- crease clotting of the blood and may be useful in helping to prevent heart attacks in some cases. Large doses are often used in arthritis and other medical conditions. Dear Dr. Lamb Will ap- petite suppressant pills taken in the fourth month of preg- nancy cause the child to lose weight and be nervous? Is any drug advisable to take during pregnancy? Dear R c a d e r The baby absorbs only those things in the mother's blood stream. All nut- rients, essential vitamins, oxy- gen and chemicals from drugs filter across the placenta (after it is formed and by simple dif- fusion earlier) and are absorb- ed by the baby. Fortunately, the mother's drugs are diluted throughout her body, so the ba- by doesn't get an adult dose. Even so, the baby is affected by any medicine or drug taken by a mother during her preg- nancy. We have much yet to learn about this problem. We do know that mothers using ad- dictive drugs give birth to ba- bies already addicted. As the baby is born, he must be treat- ed for drug addiction. WOULD EASE PINCH TORONTO (CP) Small stores want to sell beer as one way of easing the pinch caused by the current price war in On- tario supermarkets. Ge orge Crompton, assistant secretary- manager of the Retail Mer- chants' Association of Canada (Ontario) Ltd., said a poll taken in 1969 showed 90 per cent of the association's members in favor of selling beer in their independent stores. at FAIRFIELD APPLIANCES Modern Styling and Design A Hoover exclusive ii floats on a cushion of no tugging or pulling Toe operated Combination rug and floor nozzle Full 1 h.p, motor twin fan SPECIAL ONLY it i HOOVER the symbol of quality throughout the world.
