The story goes way-way back, thousands of years. It is hard to remember things that hap- pened so long ago. People did not write down their inventions end discoveries. Later they for- got how these things happened' When they learned to read and write, they invented many kinds of paper. But almost everybody forgot to write down who in- vented it. Only one person told how he did it. He lived about years ago. But this was a very long time after the very first person discovered how to make writing paper. Many clever inventors lived years ago. In those olden days, people lived in the wide valleys beside big rivers. Dif- ferent groups lived in India and China, Egypt and the Middle East. This was the beginning of human history and each group grew up in its own way. They invented ways to grow crops and tend farm animals, to weave fabrics and mold met- ais, to build and draw pictures on their walls. They invented UK most wonderful Hung' in the world. They shaped some of their pictures into letters and used the letters to write and read words- This was a problem be- cause they needed something to Write upon. At first they used whatever was handy. Some wrote on patties of wet clay and waited for them to dry. In Egypt, they bad something better, right at hand- Tail, Etringy reeds grew along the muddy banks of their river Nile. They dried these papyrus reeds, pressed them- flat and pasted them together in long rolls. Their pages of papyrus made fine writing paper. But nobody wrote down who invent- ed them. In other places, peo- ple wrote on fine fabrics or 01 dried animal skins. We don' know who invented any of these earliest writing materials. Nowadays, we make our writ ing paper from wood pulp. The chips are chomped into woody fibers and mixed with watery ingredients. The soupy pulp is rolled and dried to make flat pages. This kind of paper was invented in China, way back in 105 A.D., which was years ago- The Chinese say that Ts'ai Lun invented it. He was a Minister of Public Works ant no doubt he had to write a Ipl of reports. This may explain why be tried this and that to make some good writing paper. Ts'ai Lun made his soupy pulp from shredded wood anc mulberry bark- He dipped it in a seive, made a fine screen in a wooden frame. When, the moisture drained, out through the seive, it left a thin layer of matted woody fibers. This dried and became a fine page of writing paper but il was not the very first writing paper in the world. Visitors to China admired Ts'ai Lun's paper and took the recipe back home. Then some Chinese prisoners of war snow- ed the people of Bagdad bow to make it. Later, the Crusad- ers saw this paper, on their way to the Holy Land. They took file recipe back home to all the countries in Europe. We have improved the old recipe. But we still make our writing paper from a soupy pulp of woody Questions asuea cWWion of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765, HuntingtOD Beack, California 92648.

LAMB, M. D. Electrocardiograms sometimes vary Dear Dr. Lamb Could you give me some information on electrocardiograms? What makes them vary in people? On my annual examination last year, mine was classed as ab- normal because of flat waves. The year before, it was borderline. My doctor had me go every three months to see If there was any change. There wasn't and it is still the same. I seem to be in good health. I do not smoke or drink and use Sanka. My blood pressure is 114-76. I am five feet, two in- ches and weigh 113 pounds. My cholesterol is 244. So all tests prove normal. My doctor sent me to a heart specialist and he found no symptoms of heart disease. He said for my piece of mind he would 'put1 me1 through 'ah' exer- cise program to bring my car- diogram back to normal. If this is normal for me to have a car- diogram like mine, then is there any harm in leaving well- enough alone? Dear Reader No, there isn't any harm in leaving well- enough alone. Sometimes skill- ful, neglect is excellent medi- cine. Electrocardiograms are the graphic record of the elec- trical activity of your heart that occurs with each heart beat The electrical impulse passing over the heart muscle stimu- lates it to beat each time. We lave established characteris- ics of the graph as normal on the basis of many tests. I have studied electrocardio- Jrams in well over lealthy men and a lesser num- ber of women. The men were irom the U.S. Air Force popu- lation, including space pilots and astronauts. The women were Air Force nurses and wo- men officers. The change in what is called the "T" wave i the most common variation in the electrocardiogram in indivi duals, even in good health. We have learned that the "T wave can be changed from a variety of unimportant causes to some very important ones like high blood pressure an< changes in the heart from heart muscle damage. You usually have to examine the patien with the record to be able to tell if it is important or not. The best rule of thumb is that, if the person has no other evidence of heart disease, the change should be ignored-un less it represents a change in the record compared to pre- vious ones. From a practical point of view, there isn't anything con structive you can do about i that you shouldn't do like controlling your body weight and getting adequate ex erase. You can do that on your own. I would like to see your cholesterol level be a little low er. This suggests diet and ex erase for most people. In the future, when you have an examination, be sure thai you get your heart tracing while you are fasting (no food, cof- fee or About half of the people who have "T" wave changes that cause a lot of con fusion have normal "T" waves when they are fasting. This wil save both you and your doctor a lot of trouble. I would recom- mend fasting to anyone having such an examination. Pays bill after 40 years OTTAWA (CP) Following an operation at General Hos- pital in St. Boniface, Man., Mrs. Louise Desautels paid a deposit of five dollars on her bill. She was told she could pay the balance when she was able. Recently the 75-year-old widow sent the hospital MRS. DESAUTELS which both covered the biU and caused some surprise. The operation, to remove a gall stone, was performed in years ago. Mrs. Desautels, who now lives in Ottawa with her daughter, Anne-Marie, en- closed a letter of apology to the Grey Nuns, owners of UM hospital. She explained that she had kept the bill among her pa- pers all these but nhd not been nblo to pay It while raising her two children. Then che had misplaced the bill. She also sent to Henri Guyot, the St. Boniface doctor who did the operation, who re- plied, she says, with a nice note. Anne-Marie, a psychiatric nurse at Ottawa Civic Hospi- tal, says her mother has often mentioned the bill over the years, saying she must not forget to pay it. "It was always in the back of her mind." The bill she paid wouldn't cover the cost of a one-day stay in a hospital today. But in those days a day in hospital cost anesthetic oper- ating room and examina- tion, Government to give financial aid to papers PARIS (AP) French Fi- nance Minister Valery Giscard d'Estaing has announced that the government will give rmluDn'in indirect aid to daily newspapers. The aid is aimed at helping dailies support increases in ex- penses sustained during the sec- ond half of 1971 and revenue loss. The aid will probably come in tlie form of an increased gov- ernment share in supporting the newsprint Industry. French paper manufacturers had ob- tained a price increase in Sep- tember, half of which was sup- ported by Uie government and the other half by the papers. French daily papers have been complaining about their financial situation which they say has deteriorated partly be- cause of the transfer of adver- tising to the state-owned televi- sion system.
