Dr. Williams said In Africa Ihc sick first consult a witch doctor who might suggest hospilal if Ihe patient is ex- tremely ill and docs not re- spond to Ms ministrations. To overcome the ensuing Inefficiency, Dr. Williams set up clinics where bolb he and a witch doctor sat.

"His main use was in explain- ing certain bizarre sympto- mology." Strange complaints such as nightmares, palpitations, headaches and hallucinations which "would have a doctor trained in Western medicine scratching his bead a long while" were easily explained by the witch doctor in terms of tribal culture such as pun- ishment for basic codes bro- ken. Complaints baffling lo Ihe wilch doclor such as a diabe- tic coma were deftly dealt with by Ihe doctor. "It worked very said Dr. Williams. He said there is no equiva- lent of the witch doclor in Ihe North, though some Eskimos arc said to be shamans. But Ihe principle of involving local people is fundamental. MORE SUSCEPTIBLE In Frobisher, the 12 Eskimo women are responsible for 350 persons placed on anti-TB drugs because their x-rays and sputum and skin tests showed they risked contract- ing the disease. The Eskimo is CO times more likely to get TB than the wMle. Through a nurse-inter- preler, the 12 Eskimo women were given a basic under- standing of the disease, exam- ining TB germs under a mi- croscope and comparing x- rays from normal and tuber- cular chests. They were then taught to administer a drug called INH and a new medication called Ethambulol- They also collect urine and sputum samples and do eye tests for possible mild blurring of vision some- times caused by Ethambutol. The Frobisher program has teen under way for eight months and others will be set up this fall at Clyde River and e Dorset. Again using Es- kimo women to monitor treat- ment.

FAMILIAR SIGHT DARTMOUTH, N.S. (CP) 'he city ol Dartmouth has its rst female properly assessor nd she says her usual grceling rom housewives is an apology or the untidiness of their omes. But Gloria McCIuskey ays she usually gets a good re- eplion and she Lells the housc- ivcs, "it just looks like my ome after my. four children eavc for school." DEAR ANN LANDERS: Four years :go, at age 16 1 was picked up for shoplifting. I was lucky lo get off with a warning. I don't know what made me do such n foolish Hung. I must have been out of my mind. I've never stolen anyllvng and I never will again. The problem is that I've been blacklisted by certain stores. Apparently Uie slores are in louch with each other and there is no escaping my past, I was hired by two per- sonnel managers and I loved working in both places. jobs ended "mysteriously" after a few weeks. No reason- but I'm sure it was my "record." How long must a person pay for old sins? I enjoy de- partment store work and I want to continue. Bui how? Please help me, Ann. I'm discouraged. Learned DEAR L. L.: 1 hope every teen-ager who has done a litllc shoplifting and nol been caught so far wilt read your Icltcr a second lime. Tell Hie personnel director during your initial interview about your unToiiunate hislory. Of course you will run the risk of net hired, but should you have Ihe good fortune lo run in'.o a compassionate person who believes in a second chana.1. you won't live in fear of losing your job because of the past. DEAR ANN LANDERS: The letter from "Fifty-Year-Old Swinger's Wife" should be required reading for every married man over 45 who is fooling around. Although married men have been cheating on thair wives from Ihe dawn of recorded hislory, il's a different game since TV came into our lives. Here's what happened to my brother- in-law, a handsome, married man, the father of three chil- dren. He lold his wife he had lo go to Hartford on business. The day he was expected home he phoned to say lie had missed his plane and was staying over. That evening his wife turned on the TV and caught the end of a championship hockey game. There was lots of com- molion. A spectator had been hit with a wild puck. The camera panned over the crowd. Who do you think was sil- ling ncxl to the victim? None other than my brother-in-law wilh Ms arm around a cute little broad. Not only did my sister see it, but all our relatives in Hartford, Stamford and Greenwich saw il, too. The divorce settlement was a beauty. Stinky? You bet -Delilah DEAR D.: Yeah and expensive, loo. Thanks for the short course. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband has a cheap streak when it comes to certain things. He goes around the house telling me to keep Ihe lighls ON instead of turning them off when I leave the room. He seems to thmk it "saves the bulbs." I don't know where ho got the idea. I read some- where that leaving lights on, ralher lhan turning them off and on again when you need them, will not "save the bulbs." His habit is annoying and I'd appreciate it if you'd find out if he is really saving bulbs by letting the lighls burn. Thanks, Out Linda DEAR LINDA: The man at Con Edison says this: In- candescent light bulbs are made to burn a certain, number of hours. They will bum approximately this length of time whether they are on all the time or switched on and off: frequently. Fluorescent bulbs, however, are a different matter. Turn- ing them on DOES use up a little something Ihat eventually wears away. However, in normal household use, the life ot a light bulb is NOT shortened by an appreciable amount if the bulb is turned on and off several times a day.
