You could easily be fooled by her youthful appearance with her shoulder-length, sandy-colored hair, her big brown eyes and her whistle- bait figure. But for nearly two years now. Dr. Robinson has teen heading a special epidemiol- ogy study under a re- search grant, in pursuit of an organism known as Atypical. Atypical makes its victims react positively to the stand- ard tuberculin lest, although Ihey are not afflicted by tur- bcrculosis. In greatest majority with the or- are no visible symptoms, but in adults it's occasionally fatal. Dr. Robinson says the or- ganism itself was isolated some time ago by research- ers, but it is not yet known where or how it breeds or how it is transmitted. Aided by nurse Brigitte Vo- gelsang and laboratory techni- cian Judy Blokmanis, she has until next March to complete the project and has been working with students in Grades 6 and 7. "We find this age group the easiest to work Dr. Robinson says. "They are mature enough to understand what we are doing and not to be traumatized by the constant testing, yet young enough for our pur- poses." The detective work starts with giving all students in a selected group routine tuber- culin skin tests. Those who have a negative which means no TB or Atypi- cal germs are become the key participant in the program. This group receives another skin test, in which a stronger .strain of pure protein dcriva live is used than that nor- mally given for the TB test, and the students are carcfullv watched and tested monthly to catch those who might con- vert from negative lo positive indicating the presence of Atypical infection. When this happens, the sible sources of the infection can be explored. One discovery, says Dr. Robinson, has been that dui ing the cold months from ember to March there are no new incidences of Atypical among children being tested, while there are a number dur ing the warm months. RESISTS TB DRUGS She says the disease is not contagious, but it is com pletely resistant to all tuberculosis drugs. The re moval of a small gland in the neck cures it in children, but the surgery does not work for adults. Dr. Robinson's testing is not limited to children. She and her assistants have taken hundreds of samples of soil in areas where the students live, play and work, including ditches when they are wet and again when dry. "We have taken swabs from animals of all kinds. Pigs seem to carry the c.-ganism in some instances. We got one positive sample from goose droppings in Stanley Park." A graduate from the University of Alberta Medical College, Dr. Robinson is confi- dent that a breakthrough will come in the research, in spite of months of mostly dead ends. Ann Landers HEADS MEDICAL STUDY Dr. Barbara Robinson, seated at microscope, heads up a special epidemiology research study being conducted at Shaughnessy Hospital, Vancouver, investigating an organism which makes its victims react positively to the standard tuberculin test although they do not have tuberculosis. Holding a fresh batch of samples for testing and examination is nurse Brigitte Vogelsang.

II was a beautiful moonlit ni4hl and I was driving her home from a great party. When I look her to the door stie lingered awhile making small talk. I finally said "goodnight." and she turned her face up and closed her eyes. I read this as lire imitation I'd been waiting for. When I bent down for my very first romantic kiss, my nose hit hers, my front toolh bumped her lip and I bit her. Thank the good Ijird .she had a wonderful sense of humor. She alto knew I was humiliated. Bless her understanding hi art, she started to laugh, and so did I Al that mon-.cn! I wa so grateful for her compassion that .she endeared herself to me forever.

When lie was seven months old I took him to the pedia- trician. He agreed the boy was starving to death ,md asked me the ages of my other children. I told him 6, 4. 3 and 2. and he replied. "I'm not surprised." Then he went on lo explain that this child was starving for affection. He sug- gested that I keep the baby close to my body all day long. I thought this was insane but he explained that I should strap the child to my back so he could feel the closeness of me. I decided I had lietter listen lo him. so I made an Indian papoose bag out of gingham yard goods. I carried that child on my back from morning tilf night. He was on my back when I did the cooking, when I ran after the other four, when I did UK cleaning and Ihe marketing and when I hung out the She has had one book pub-!
