Expression of personal wishes New Zealand Plans Lamb Flights AUCKLAND, N.Z. (CP) The New Zealand meat board is investigating ways of flying Iamb to Canada by a new American Airlines service across the Pacific. One of the new Pacific serv- ices recently negotiated is due to start Aug: 1. Fresh lamb had been flown from Auckland by Canadian Pa- cific Airlines to Vancouver until that service was cancelled and later by Air New Zealand for trans-shipment at Los Angeles. Similar methods have more re- cently been adopted in supply- ing fresh lamb to- Canadian areas farther east. It is understood plans now are being explored for sending from to pounds a week by American Airlines to Toronto, in addition to shipments carried by Air New Zealand.

THE WELL CHILD Modern Drags Useful Iii Treatment Of Psoas By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. CJ What is the cause of a psoas abscess? What is the best treatment? A A psoas abscess is a "cold" (slowly forming, non- inflammatory) abscess arising from a disease, usually tuberc- ulosis, of the lumbar vertebrae. The pus formed descends into the sheath of the psoas muscle, which is attached to the ta- volved vertebra. A combination of surgery and modern anti- tuberculosis drugs is used in its treatment. Q My son-in-law has tu- berculosis of the kidneys. Is it catching? Can it be cured? What drugs are used in treating it? Is surgery ever necessary A Tuberculosis of the kid- ney is not catching. It is treated with the same drugs used for pulmonary tuberculosis. Surgi- cal removal of the diseased kid- ney is rarely necessary. Q If a person works in a tuberculosis hospital and his tests are negative, can he still be a carrier of the disease? A No. Q Is it true that radio and television give off harmful radi- ations? A Radio does not but color television sets do when viewed too closely. If the viewer site at least six feet from the screen, there is no danger. You should avoid exposure to the sides and rear of the set when it is turned on. Manufacturers are constantly improving the safety of their sets. Q Will watching color tele- vision hurt the eyes? A Not if the room is well- lighted. Some persons with glaucoma develop ocular dis- comfort with prolonged view- ing. At the first sign of such dis- comfort, they should stop look- ing. Q What happens to a per- son if his thymus is removed? A The thymus helps a child to develop the ability to combat infections. This function is com- pleted before he reaches puber- ty, after which the gland shrinks and becomes less im- portant. It may be removed from'an adult because of a tumor of the gland or because of his myasthenia gravis. In either case, the health is im- proved. yHf.

(AP) Late one night, Dr. Milton Dodosh of Brown University was driving pell-mell through downtown Providence when a police cruiser, siren scream- ing, flagged him down. "What's tile big rush, mis- demanded the police- man. "Well, you see, said Hodosh, "I've got this ba- boon in the trunk...." "You've got a WHAT in the interrupted the po- liceman.

Urges Hike For Police, Firemen TORONTO, (CP) -The On- tario Chamber of Commerce says that to attract top men to the province's police and fire departments, municipalities nust be willing to pay top dol- ars. Among recommendations in a recent brief to the "provincial government, the chamber sug- gests that because the job of the wlicemah or fireman fe the lame whether he is on duty in a lig city or a small town, uni- orm minimum standards of pay should-be establish ed across the province. A survey by The Canadian Press shows that in the case of (olioemen, salaries range from a high of yearly for a irst-class conkable in Toronto o a low of for the same classification in Petrolia, near arnia. North Bay, which last year reported a sharp increase in crime over a period of several months, pays a first-class con- table only slightly Toronto firemen also are tops on the Ontario scale at 'early, under last year's con- ract. Lowest are Kingston fire- men, who .earn under the 969 contract. "NOT IN OUR LIFETIME OR CHILDRIN'S UFITIME Wilt WE SEE THE END OF THIS fOUUTON."

IN YOUR IETHBKIDOI HERALD WEIKEND MAOAZINE The late-night dash by Ho- dosh is symbolic of the, race against time, bacteria and other problems being run by dental researchers trying to stop, or better repair, the rav- ages on the collective North American mouth. Dentally speaking, North America is in horrible shape. A LONG QUEST Dr. Hodosh and his asso- ciates at Brown University and at Tufts dental school in Boston have been experiment- ing for more than a decade, both in baboons and humans, with artificial whole-tooth im- plants made of a special mix- ture of plastic and specially treated human bone chips. The aim is to perfect imme- diate replacements for indi- vidual extracted teeth or teeth lost from gum disease. Hodosh, once a champion college javelin thrower, has performed many baboon im- plants that have survived like natural teeth for periods up to 10 years; and an "upper'right bicuspid" implant in a woman that has gone years with no apparent signs of rejection. Hodosh said he and his team are now preparing for the first large-scale human trials of the technique. The three-year project wiU involve implants in at least 150 per- sons. Bold and imaginative re- search also is under way on other approaches to combat- ting the devastating dental problems. The efforts range from studies aimed at developing, possibly within 10 years, a vaccine or drug-and-dietary combination for preventing tooth decay, to the use of bone grafts taken from a patient's hdp to replace parts of jaw bone destroyed by pyorrnea, a mysterious gum and tooth- socket malady. They also include experi- mental use of laser beams, perhaps the most powerful form of light in the universe, as a conceivable means of strengthening teeth against decay; employment of ultra- sonic devices for vibrating germ-ridden tartar from teeth; and a plastic paint, ap- plied like nail-polish to the bit- ing and grinding surfaces of teeth, to provide armor-plate protection against bacterial invasion of certain vulnerable areas. Also: gel" applied to the teeth of children for a few minutes a day several times a week by means of a device somewhat resembling Hie mouthpiece of boxers and football players. additives, such as bread and chewing gum laced with phosphate or other chem- icals, to make teeth less prone to decay. steel Origi- nally developed for use in space rockets bat now being tested as a possible improved and less expensive metal for use in dental bridges and other appliances. bone marrow grafts applied in conjunction with a temporarily inserted metal implant and designed to, help false teeth wearers who can't tolerate their choppers be- cause of loss of Or receding bone ridges. On the vaccine front, dental researchers of the United States Public Health Service and the navy see possibilities of virtually eliminating tooth decay within the next decade. Their hopes are based on rela- tively recent evidence strengthening theories that dental decay is an infectious, germ-caused like the common cold. GOREN ON BRIDGE CHARLES H.

East opened the bidding with One club and South chose to overeall with one_ spade, despite the superiority of his diamond holding, in the hope of showing both of his suits most economically. If the enemy contests in hearts, it might actually prove more convenient to bid his suitj naturally. North bid two hearts and now South showed his other suit. North'i preference in three ipades, holding only worthless doubleton, was highly questionable in our opinion he should have tried to slow down the proceedings by bidding three hearts to suggest that the hands do not fit well. North's delayed raise propelled South into bidding a game. West opened the Jack of clubs, the deuce was played from dummy, and declarer was in with the king. Ht wai not very happy with the spade holding put down by hij partner; however, he realiied that if he intended to ntab- lish his diamond suit it might be a good idea to make use of dummy's ruffing value while it was available. The ace and king of dia- monds were cashed as both opponents followed suit. On the third diamond West cov- ered with the queen, North ruffed with the spade four, and East overruffed with the nine. East switched to the king of hearts; dummy played the ace and led the five of spades. East put up the ace and returned the queen of hearts. Declarer ruffed with the three of spades and then cashed the king, dropping East's queen and leaving only West's jack of spades out- standing. South conceded a trump trick to West and claimed the remaining tricks, since his diamond suit was established. He lost three tricks on the deal two spades and UM overmtf in diamonds.
