ARIES (March 21 April THE DOCTOR SAYS Most Arthritis Victims Require Home Treatment By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. Since arthritis is a chronic disease, most victims need a helpful program of home treat ment. Even the best of these Will not cure the disease but i can add a great deal to the victim's comfort. A good home care program aids in the main tenance of a good posture, al- lowance for adequate rest and the provision of graduated ex- ercises to prevent permanen stiffening of the involved joints. Much can also be done to make life easier for arthritics through the use of self- help devices.

While you are about it, ask'for their leaflet, "The Diet and Arthritis." Q What causes ulcerative colitis? Is it contagious? What is the best diet for it? Is there any other treatment for it? Does it turn into cancer if not treat- ed? A The cause is now be- lieved to'be a.deficiency of. one or more of the intestinal diges- tive enzymes. Allergy to cer- tain pollens appears to be t factor in some cases. It is not contagious. Skillful treatment is required. Great care must be taken to roughage (even cook- ed vegetables and fruit) and other intestinal irritants. This necessitates taking vitamin sup- plements. About 20 per cent of he victims do better when milk and milk products are omitted from their diet. Adequate rest is an essential part of the treatment. One auth- ority advocates inducing sleep n the hospital for 14 days. Al- cohol and tobacco must be avoided. Drugs of the cortisone type are given, preferably on alternate days, to combat the inflammation. Other drugs are n'ven to check the diarrhea and o reduce nervous tension. Ev- ery 'effort 'must be m'a'de to avoid infections and, when they do occur, prompt treatment with antibiotics is necessary.

The 770 workers were fired last week after a brief sit-down strike at the plant, 220 miles west of Edmonton. Negotiations between the council and the Los Angeles- based Ralph M. Parsons Co., which is building the Chevron Standard plant, have cleared the trouble that erupted last week, Mr. Clarke said. WORKERS RETURN .The workers now are return- ing to the site but the employ- ment roll will likely not reach its former level for about a month, he said, adding that the company was about to lay off some men when the labor dis- rate started. The ones being hired were the same ones fired last week. Mr. Clarke said the trades council felt the men "had a legitimate complaint" in their protest against what they felt were overly stringent security leasures. The company agreed to sup- ply more gates in the fences separating various parts of the 80-acre construction site in the Kaybob gas field.
