BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. IOTONTV! MIDDLE-CLASS ANIMALS By Hugh Laidmu Q How does a positive tu- berculin skin test look? Is il serious? 24 to 72 hours after the tuberculin is introduced into the skin an area of thickenec reddened skin 6mm or more in diameter is seen. This does not mean that you have active tu- serculosis only tot at one tima in your life you had the disease. It could have been either mild or severe but, in either case, you are more sus- ceptible to the disease than a jerson whose test is negative. Q How does one get tuber- culosis? How can it be prevent- ed? Can it be cured? A The most unusual way ;he disease is acquired is by in- lialing the minute droplets ex- laled in coughing, laughing or .alking by a person wjth active uberculosis or by kissing such a wrspn. The chief means of pre- 'ention is early recognition of persons with active tuberculosis md their treatment in a san- tarium. Although treatment must be prolonged (18 to 24 he disease can be cured with modern drugs. Relapses often jccur, however, in persons who ail to get sufficient treatment ir fail to report for periodic heckups after they appear to cured. Q I have tuberculosis and am taking Pasalate and isoni- azid. Will cure this disease' What are their side effects? A These drugs will cure you if the treatment is carried on long enough. Isoniazid may cause dizziness, drowsiness, headache and nausea. Pasalate should not be taken by anyone with a kidney, liver or stomach ailment. Q _ what effect does alcohol have on a person who has tuber- culosis? such a person needs all the strength and resistance he can build up to combat his disease, he should avoid alco- hol. Excessive use of alcohol interferes with proper nutrition. Furthermore, it is the cause of many tuberculosis patients failing to take their disease ser- iously and failing to continue their treatment until they are completely cured. Q A man who lived in our apartment building was hospital- ized for a year for tuberculosis. His apartment was never fumi- gated. Now he is cured and has come back. Is there any danger of getting tuberculosis from his apartment? A No. Fumigation is not required. TWTPUY WAS OBSCENE! "fT QUtrCOMPlAINING...

If so, it may be because you may be eating too much air. That's Researchers report that swallowed air may account for 75 per cent of the cases of "bloat and a problem more definitely known as "gas in the gastrointestinal tract." That's one of the most com- mon symptoms of the main varieties of abdominal dis- tress which plague millions of North Americans at one time or another. Scientists have tongue-twist- ing titles for the tummy trou- as aerophagia, bor- borygmus and dyspepsia. Gum chewers, especially those who chew as a kind of nervous habit, are likely to swallow abnormal quantities of air, researchers say, and end up with gas trapped in the intestines. Heavy smokers of all kinds pipe or also among champion air-eat- ers. So are non-stop conversa- tionalists; and fast, gulpy eat- those who, as one medie puts it, "may be on the reducing die quick gulp and a flatulen aftermath." GAS IS TRAPPED "Flatus" is the word for ga trapped in the bowels. Finally, their ranks includ drinkers of carbonated bever often taken t cause what can be a health; burp, but which instead oftei serve to increase the uncon scious air-swallowing. Other contributors to gas ecus distress include eating certain as onions cooked cabbage, radishes am cucumbers; individual aller gies to some types of food overrating, and eating while under emotional stress. What about new treatments for the age-old problems? "I don't know of anything new or startling in the medi cine line that has come along lately to treat uncomplicated functional saic Dr. Irving Brick, acting chie of the gastoenterology depart- ment at Georgetown Univer- sity Hospital and school of medicine.

After the king and ace are played, Soulh is unable to overtake the nine in dummy; and when the queen of spades fails to materialize n an entry, the diamonds aro permanently retired from play.

When Soulh regained the lead, he played the king and ace of diamonds; and his foresight was rewarded with the run- ning of six diamond tricks when the suit responded favorably. His clubs and spades swelled the total it the required nine. It may be observed that West can frustrate the de- clarer by not cashing the long heart.

BAKING SODA GOOD "As for the Dr. Brick says, "the oldtime bak- ing soda remedy.is probably as effective as many of the highly touted modern anta- cids, the advertisements for which try to tout one over the other. But, on the other hand, baking soda might be bad for a person if he had some other chronic ailment he wasn't aware of. "Moreover, antacids sold over the drugstore counter and elsewhere, without pre- scription, probably may be just as effective as the ones the doctors most often pre- scribe. "Basically, they all have the same as calcium or aluminum hydrox- ides to act as antacids, and magnesium to help prevent constipation." Both Dr. Brick and Dr. Martin Durkin, another Georgetown gastroenfcer- ologist, say that nearly every- one has transient episodes of to excessive, or otherwise faulty, eating; or to temporary emotional stress.

Public information director Ira Neiger of the National Planned Parenthood organiza- tion in New York City said that of the women who have used his agency's abortion infor- mation telephone service, 561 were from out of state. There was a rush of another sort, though. Dr. Thomas Ker- enyi, who heads abortion serv- ices at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital said the majority of cases now being bandied by his unit were late pregnancies of 10 to 20 weeks. Administrator George Skom- sky said Massena Memorial Hospital had received many calls from Canada. The five Buffalo hospitals that are non-Catholic and have ma ternity facilities said they are doing a fairly set number o abortions daily. There appeared to be no rush to open abortion clinics in the first week after the law took ef- fect. WHATDOVOU MEAN.I ew'r THIS CART? IT'S THE LAST rr's FOR MR.IOOGE.' -T-Jff THE CLUB PRESIDENT.'
