Come on, you've got to be kidding." "Cross my heart and hope to may Hippocrates haunt me if I'm fibbing." grinned Dr. James D. Frost Jr., a young Baylor Univer- sity medical school neurophy- siologist who is doing rsearch on how people don't sleep. "Come on upstairs to the sleep-lab, and I'll introduce vou to him." And so, as midnight ap- proached and most of the lights were out in famed Methodist Hospital, the doctor arsd the reporter want up four flights to a hushed laboratory where they met Lester Jor- dan, 26, a 230-pound six-footer. Indeed he is an insomniac since I was a kid." And indeed he does work in a Houston sell darned good beds, but even they don't completely help me." Remember his ter be might wind up in the annals of medi- cine as one of the pioneer par- ticipants in. research that could provide new aid to mil- lions of insomnia sufferers throughout the world. The affliction is widespread. Insomnia besets at least one out of three North Americans at some time during their lives, however temporary it nright be in many cases, lead- ing researchers say. REMEDIES NUMEROUS While insomniacs c o 11 e c-' thriety consume tons of drugs, others try methods ranging from induced hypnosis and self-hypnosis to gymnastics or yoga exercises. Still others employ mechan- ical devices, including "flui- vibrating, or automat- ically massaging beds; electr- ical head-warmers and feet- warmers; "anti-snoring" de- vices for their mates; and various kinds of bedside soundmaking devices de- signed to cancel out other sounds. Other insomniacs try such techniques as taking a bub- ble-bath and playing the harp- sichord before bedtime; tak- ing long automobile drives around the countryside when virtually no one else is up but the owls; telephoning fellow- insomniacs and trying to talk one another to sleep, or knocking off a couple of fast martinis by the dawn's early light. One form of insomnia ap- pears directly related to the aging process, and is charac- terized in elderly folks by fre- quent awakenings, and early- in-the-moming final awaken- ing. It's not deemed overly se- rious. Another form is called "acute situational usually a temporary thing re- sulting from such as "busi- ness or work problems, or stu- dents worried about being drafted." said Dr. Anthony Kales, director of the Univer- sity of California at Los Ange- les sleep research and treat- ment facility. This category includes a typo which results when a person's "biological clock" gets out of whack, as when airplane pilots and steward- esses are regularly exposed to time-zone changes. "We've all had situational insomnia at some time or an- other, and for insomniacs in that category, the prognosis is very said Kales. MANY CHRONIC CASES Another large group of suf- up to 70 per cent of the composed of individuals with chronic emotional o r psychological problems, ranging from mild to severe, but short of out- right mental derangement. Researchers have found that the sleep of insomniacs when it does many of them get more sleep than they think they charac- terized by irregular rhythms. Normal sleep, studies re- veal, consists of a kind of rhythmic, cyclic pattern of four separate about 90 which a person progressively slips, without dreaming, from very GOREN ON BRIDGE BT CHARLES R.

The dream stage of each cycle is detectable by rapid unconscious movements of the sleeper's though he were watching a movie or tel- evision. This "rapid-eye-mov- plus the period of deepest sleep, are considered the most im- portant and desirable stages. Kales and some other sleep-researchers say the av- erage doctor has been too quick to prescribe sleeping pills for insomniacs in gen- eral. While barbiturate and even non-barbiturate drugs of the hypnotic class can quickly bring oblivion, Kales says they tend to suppress the ap- parently important REM sleep stages. Kales stresses that he and his colleagues are still looking for "the ideal that would really work in putting people to sleep; would assure unaltered REM sleep; and have minimal effects on mood and performance the next day."

THE WELL CHILD Pacifier Is Better Than Thumbsiieking By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. Q My daughter, 2, still has to have a pacifier when she sleeps. She loses it four or five times a night and I have to get up and find it for her. Her face around her mouth is broken out and I'm sure it is caused by the pacifier. I changed from a rub- ber to a plastic pacifier but this didn't help. What do you sug- take the pacifier her if she chews pacifier does beat gest? A A thumbsucking. Most children give it up at about age 2. I would not refuse to let your daughter have her pacifier at bedtime but you should firmly refuse to retrieve it for her dur- Noah's Ark Expedition Barred ANKARA (AP) Turkey, cit- ing "security has barred Noah's Ark hunters from Mount Ararat where the Book of Genesis records that survivors landed after the biblical flood. Turkish officials would not elaborate on why they refused to allow an expedition to scale Ararat, which looms feet over the heavily-fortified Turk- ish-Soviet ,border. But Ralph E. Lenton, chief of the expedition organized by _the Search Foundation of Washing- ton, D.C., said he is attempting to have the decision changed by applying to the Turkish foreign ministry. A Briton who works with the Arctic Institute of North Amer- ica, Lenton said the expedition applied last April for permission to climb Ararat with excavating equipment this summer. They received no answer, said, until several members of the 11-man team arrived in Tur- key this month and were told by Turkish interior ministry offi- cials their application was being denied. FOUND WOOD The group was seeking to ex- pand on explorations by a six- man expedition that climbed Ar- arat with simple tools last year and removed several pieces of hand-hewn wood from under glacier at the H.OCO-foot level of the mountain. The Search Foundation sale the wood was variously dated from to years old anc made no claim "as to the ident- ity of the artifact." But members of the expedi- tion made it clear they hope to be able to identify the wood as remains of the Ark that the Bible says Noah and his three sons made by hand to shelter their" families during 40 days and 40 nights of rain. ing the night. This will be rough on both of you at first but she must learn that others have rights, too, and the sooner, she learns this the better. Now that she has a few teeth you should away from pieces out of it. The rash may indeed be caused by the pad- tier. Your doctor can determine this by means of a patch test. Meanwhile, you may want to apply yausone Cream, a pre- scription item, two or three times a day. Q I recently heart that some mothers dip a pacifier in honey and give it to their ba- bies to stop their crying. Do you approve? A This lazy habit is not recommended because it spoils the baby's appetite for essential foods and leads to tooth decay. These mothers should find out what is causing the baby _ to cry, remove the cause and give him an added dose of tender loving care. Q My 'daughter, 12, has loose piece of cartilage in her knee joint which hurts her sometimes when she walks or bends her knee. What is the cause and what treatment do you advise? A In most cases no cause for these loose bodies can be found. The best treatment is surgical removal. Q _ Our son, IS, has popping of his knees, elbows and fingers when he bends them. What causes this and what can be done about it? A This is caused by a ten- don snapping across a bony prominence. It is unusual to have so many joints involved The condition is not serious bul it can be controlled by avoid- ing sudden movements. Q Our son, 5, eats well is very active but he passes gas all day. Our family doctor says there is nothing wrong with him What do you advise? A Cut down on his intake of potatoes, corn, beans, peas and rice. Such defoaming drugs as Festal, Mylicon, Phazyme and Silain may be helpful.
