ALTMAN New York Times Service NEW YORK A leading medical publication has warn- ed about the potential hazards of allergy and deafness among infants whose skin is smeared with an antibiotic ointment for diaper rash The Medical Letter said in its issue being published Dec 7 that the antibiotic ointment is repeatedly to large areas of raw skin in infants with diaper rash Such fre- quent smearing on injured skin could cause absorption of the drug in amounts sufficient to produce harmful effects to the body. Permanent deafness produc- ed by tne called can progress up to months after a person stops taking the The Medical Letter's editors said. Other antibiotics like strep- gen- tamicin and va neomycin also can produce deafness. The Medical Letter said that neomycin could act in concert with such drugs when they had been prescribed for a patient earlier The cumulative effect of two or more of these an- tibiotics could cause deafness. At the same the publication's editors joined the growing list of medical journals that have criticized the overuse of antibiotics The Medical Letter said that convincing exists that the topical use of anti- biotics is effective in healing or preventing skin infections CASH BINGO O'CLOCK HUNGARIAN OLIVTIMERS HAIL A SI 00 Blickoul Bingo flapd lor till won Silurdly plus 2-7 Numtar Jickpols JACKPOTS NOW AND 5 CiruSiurS1.CC or Next to No. 1 Give Your Husband a New Woman for Christmas loin Weight today.

THE BETTER HALF Bullfighting traditions challenged by woman By CAMPBELL LENNIE The of Loadoa LONDON More and more women are asserting their right to follow professions dominated by so it was inevitable that a frontal assault should sooner or later be made on that bastion of male bullfight- ing. At present the is under siege by a lady on looks is anyone's picture-book Not only is she she is also for a Southern a flaxen blond. Baptized Angela Her- nandez Gomez but known simply as she has the ultra conservative Span- ish bull-fight authorities in a tizzy. Women do fight in Spanish bullrings in the minor but exclusively as re- from the backs of highly trained horses. these ladies are never allowed to dismount. Having placed their bandenllas and other mis- cellaneous hardware in the bull's tossing they attempt to finish him off with a a wooden-handled spear. If they fail to kill with this delicate instrument they usually the job is left to a known as a sobre- saliente. A simple hangs over any rejoneadora tempted to dismount and make the kill herself jail or a heavy fine. This is a dis- grace few girls of good family would but Angela is made of sterner stuff To begin she lacks the well heeled horsey background of most re- joneadoras. She was born in Alicante in the daughter of a guardia civil. At nine she began playing calves with a homemade and became something of a junior phenomenon. While she was still in her teens both her parents died and she adopted the roving life of the aspirant traveling from ranch to ranch in hopes of be- ing allowed a few passes with a fighting bull or cow. In Latin-America women in Mexico being allowed to play and kill the bull on foot. She was successful there as a re- joneadora borrowed but her obsessive enthusiasm was for foot- fighting. She returned to Spain in 1970 more than ever deter- mined to be a lady matador only to find the bullfight authorities equally determin- ed that no such creature would ever exist again. Angela seems indifferent to injury and oc- curances not uncommon to the profession. What incenses her in the retrogressiveness of the ban because in the latter half of the last century female foot-fighters were relatively even women bullfighting teams with lady picadors The regulation banning dis- mounted women in Spain became effective in 1908. But Angela has not intention of giving up now She dis- covered that the edict dis- allowing women was in direct contravention of a superior law passed in 1961 granting equal professional rights to women. The Spanish legal profession supported while the bull-fight authorities and the 'labor ministry did their utmost to play down the whole thing. Angela was able to a membership card as a or aspirant authorizing her to fight professionally in that capacity. Along with four young male she was booked to appear in a foot- fight to be held in October at the small town of Higuera La Real inExtreraadura. Usually you can hardly give away seats for such modest but the posters for this one were over-stickered well in advance with the legend so dear to bull-fighters. No hay billetes tickets at the last the civil governor invoked the notorious article 49. The bullfight was abruptly suspended. Angela was carried shoulder-high around the town an ac- colade usually reserved for bull-fighters who have triumphed. The bullfight word is split into differing Angela factions some see her as a militant others as a publicity-seeking clothes- many a growing caucus of male declare that her or her commitment to her grisly is totally genuine. To the creaking anachronistic bullfight she can represent only one thing a beautiful pain in the incurable and liable to recur. Women are more prepared Sudden death preferred By LAWRENCE K. ALTMAN New York Times Service NEW YORK An analysis of how 84 Swedish men and women want to die shows that two-thirds of the men and one- third of the women wanted to suddenly or unex- according to an un- usual report by the chief inter- nist at Sweden's oldest hospital. The report appeared in an issue of the Archives of Inter- nal which is published in Chicago by the American Medical Associa- tion. In making the report a cover the editors called the question of the manner of death provocative The Swedish internist Dr Gunnar Biorck of the Serafimer Hospital in Stockholm said the findings raised a series of thorny questions with important im- plications for medical prac- tice and research The Swedish report comes at a time when Americans are discussing often heatedly the subject of death and eu- thanasia. For in a case of heart transplant sur- a Califoniid court has been asked to resolve legal problems that stem from the definition of death the manner of dying is emerging as a critical factor as doctors and laymen openly examine some of the aims and goals of medical care and the costs of the delivery of health care. Concern about the economic burden to in- dividuals and society of maintaining life in too large a group of helpeless older citizens has contributed to the debate. The report that Dr. Biorck wrote for the Archives of Internal Medicine was based on an analysis of questions that the Swedish weekly magazine Vecko-Journalen posed in recent years to 57 male and 27 female professors and radio and television per- sonalities. The respondents ranged in age from 30 to 90 years but Dr Biorck said great were between 40 and 70. One actor said he wanted to die on stage and an author said he would like to die at a royal dinner Another author said he wanted to be killed by a friend while asleep. Five women said they wanted to die in their sleep. Four were actresses and the fifth was involved with opera. The questions about the manner of dying were part of interviews conducted with a group of highly selected in- dividuals who Dr. Biorck said had rich and full some more controversial than and who have had oc- casion to reflect on life and Dr. a cardiologist and professor of medicine at the Karolinska emphasized that his analysis was just that and not a scien- tific study based on a random sample. the car- diologist said the findings had raised questions of how much effort should be devoted to the prevention of sudden death from heart attacks Dr Biorck said he wondered if studies conducted in other countries on the general pop- ulation's attitudes toward the manner of dying would have results similar to those ex- pressed in the Swedish magazine.
