You may stsrt your campaign .upward this week- end, as plenty of free energy is available. Emotional ex- perience broadens into a swirling tide of exploration and development toward a new phase of life. Today's 1 THE DOCTOR'S MA1LBAO ssypsl One-Celled.Parasite Cause Of Trichomoniasis By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. Q What is the cause and treatment of trichompniasis? A This is a vaginal infec- tion with a one celled ani- mal parasite, the Trichomonas. It is very common and, in many persons, especially men, it causes no symptoms. In sus- ceptible women it causes local itching or burning and a white frothy discharge There is some evidence that the standard treatment with metronidazole (flagyl) is less effective than it was several years ago, probably because the parasite is building up a resistance to the drug. Two other prescription drugs arc now available betadine and aminoacridine both for local, not internal, use. Q My doctor says I have trichomoniasis. Vaginal suppos- itories helped at first but the Two Committed For Trial St. PAUL (CP) Roy Ed- ward Primeau, 17, and Robert Earl Reed, 20, both of Cold Lake, have been committed for condition always returns. How can I get rid of it? Will it pre- vent me from becoming preg- nant? The infection can be eliminated only if husband and wife are treated simultaneous- ly. It will not interfere with pregnancy. Q What is the difference between trichomoniasis, moni- liasis and candidiasis? How is the diagnosis made? A Moniliasis and candidia- sis are the same disease. It is caused by a fungus, not an ani- mal parasite and, although fungus may invade the vagina, unlike trichomoniasis it more commonly involves the tonsils, tongue and gums. The diagno sis of both diseases may be made by examining a swab from the infected area under the microscope and identifying the causative organism. Q _ What is the cause ot trichinosis? .Is it serious? Can it be cured? A This is an infestation with a small worm that may be swallowed with poorly cook- ed pork. It makes its way into the blood stream and lodges in the muscles. It may be serious if it invades the heart muscle but it can now be cured by tak natives are prudent, bright and charming for the most part. Most of them have a talent for politics.

Dental Profession Warned About Services Cost WINNIPEG den- tal profession must find ways of delivering service "at a cost the public can the Ca- nadian Dental Association an- nual meeting was told here. Dr. Hector H. MacLean of Edmonton, outgoing president of the association, added that professionals must get in- volved in health services or non-professionals would pro- vide them through government agencies. He said the CDA should have closer liaison with existing health agencies because "one of these may well be the of- fices through which a national dental health care plan in whole or in part will be pro- posed." In keeping with his ideas, Dr. MacLean proposed that the as- sociation move its headquar- ters from Toronto to Ottawa. Dr. MacLean, dean of the school of dentistry at Univer- sity of Alberta, urged greater emphasis on the role of econ- omic research within the as- sociation. He also advocated that den- tal undergraduate students in then- final two years be admit- ted to the GDA as non-voting members. The association approved s resolution suggesting that den- tists should be able to dele- ;ate more of their work to jygienlists and assistants. Supporters of the resolution said it was aimed at permit- ting the dentist to serve more patients efficiently, and better meet the needs of dental health care in Canada.

What drives him to devote most of his waking hours to his work? How does he plan to turn, some S150 million track into job-priming Quebec's de- velopment? What is his mcs- eajje to Ontario? What special qualities does a young man of thirty-six possess to flatly an- nounce he is "willing to take, leadership of Eastern Canada" for improved financial balance?

Artificial Heart Goal Step Closer NEW YORK lab- oratory experiments have con- firmed that the body's own dig- ested food and inhaled oxygen can be used to produce elec- tricity to drive a totally-im- planted artificial heart. The research is described by the artificial heart program of the National Heart, and Lung Institute as a significant step toward the hoped-for develop- ment of an artificial heart, per- haps as soon as 1973. One of the most promising ideas' for an artificial heart that would need no links to an outside power source is a fuel cell that would burn oxygen from the blood stream along glucose, a sugar form with produced by food. The fuel cell would be graft- ed into the aorta, the body's major artery, at the location of the natural heart. The electri- cal energy would flow to the implanted heart, giving it the energy to pump blood. A tiny amount of electricity GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

East responded with two clubs and South chose la jump to four spades which closed out the auction. West was reluctant to make an aggressive lead into the strong bid, and he adopted a neutral course by opening the ten of spades, South pulled trump in two rounds. Declarer's prospects were sot bright, however the bid- ding had provided some in- teresting clews. West had failed to lead a club despite East's take-out in that suit. There was a strong inference therefore that he was void in that suit. Furthermore his own opening bid marked West with the bulk of the strength In both diamonds and hearts. South decided that there was a good chance he could pul his opponent to work for him. At trick three, declarer led the king of diamonds saddling West with the lead. West cashed the queen ol diamonds and when everyone Jol'owed, all the cards in that suit were accounted for. It was not safe to lead another diamond, for that would provide declarer with access to the dummy end two staffs, therefore, the exit oust be heart. West KdiHi ftal if South had both the ace and queen ol hearts, It didn't matter which card he led. If East had the qoeen, however, West must defend very carefully to avoid another endplay which might prove fatal. West chose as his return the king ol hearts. Declarer played the ace and returned the silt in the expectation that West would go back in the lead with the queen. East turned up with- that card however, and he was able to cash the setting trick with tho ace of clubs. West's foresight is clearly revealed when we examine the consequences of a small heart lead. The ten is played from dummy and East covers with the queen to force out the see. South now merely returns a heart and West is in ones more hut this time with no safe exit. His forced return of a red card puts dummy in, and North's 'established cards provide a parking place for declarer's clubs. was produced in experiments for the first time about a year ago. In the last few months two companies working with the United States govern- ment's program have gen- erated significant amounts of electricity. NEED YEARS OF WORK Dr. Lowell Harmispn, assist ant head of the artificial hear jrogram, said it might take "i :ouple of years" before fue cells are developed that pro- duce a watt of power. Normal human power re- quirements of the heart varj [rom one to five watts, Harmison said, depending the level of activity. Both the Monsanto Researcl Corp. laboratories in Boston and Leesonia Corp.'s Leesona Moos Laboratories Division in Great Neck, N.Y., have recent ly generated five milleamps o electricity per square centi meter of electrode. Doubhnj this-would yield enough powe to build a prototype for testinj The Leesonia device, an nounced yesterday, employ two sets of electrodes in the fuel cell, one to react with or ganic material such as glucose and the other with oxygen. The government's prograir also is working on thermal and radiosotope systems for artifi cial hearts. CANADIAN POLICEMEN PIGS OR HEROIS?

Mr. Chretien finally decidec to cancel the trip, partially be- cause of "some things that had come up" in Canada. Because he wouldn't be seeing anything new in Russia, the Canadian en- gagements were given priority.
