BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. Measles is a killer. Now that it is preventable, it is more nearly correct to say that mea- sles, plus apathy, is a killer. Four years ago, thanks to tne widespread use of new measles vaccine, eradication of the disease seemed possible. But in the early weeks of 1970 a sharp increase in reported cases was observed. Too many people have for- gotten how serious measles can be with its crippling complica- tions, such as pneumonia, cor- neal ulcers, middle ear infec- tions and, most damaging of all, encephalitis or brain fever. It is estimated that eight million children now approaching school age are susceptible to measles because they have not been immunized. The best time to have your child vaccinated against mea- sles is on his first birthday. But no child should be allowed to start his school life without this protection, because contact with a large number of other B.C. Forest Fire Bans Removed VICTORIA (CP) Steady rain during the weekend over most of southern British Colum- bia has "substantially changed" the forest fire situation in the province. Tile ban on campfires and re- strictions on industrial opera- tions in the huge Kamloops forest district in south-central B.C. was .lifted Sunday, a day after campfire, travel and log- ging restrictions ended in the Vancouver district. Chief information officer Ray Wormald said the forest service was also considering lifting re- strictions in the Nelson district in southeaster B.C. Suspension of campfire permits in Prince George and Prince Hupert dis- tricts was ended earlier last week. children is the surest way to get the disease. Q Is it true that cats carry disease? Which would be bet- ter for a child a cat or a dog? A All pets are potential carriers of disease. The best pet for a child is one that ap- peals to him and that he can be taught to take care of. If you are worried about it being a source of disease, have a veterinarian examine the pet and give it appropriate inocu- lations. Q _ My son had convulsions for three days after he was bora. The doctor said they were caused by a calcium deficiency and gave him calcium in his veins, which cured him. What is the name of this disease? Is it likely that my next baby will have it? A This sounds like tetany (not but it is unusual for it to be present at birth. It is not likely to occur in any of your future babies. Q A girl, 7, in our family has leukemia. Is there any cure for it? A Although there is no known cure, several new drugs have extended the lives of chil- dren with this disease vincri- stine, methotexate, I-aspargin- K and chlorambucil. Q My daughter, 9, got pneumonia and was given pen- icillin. She is able to go to school, but she has scar tissue on one lung. Will it clear up? A It should clear up with- in four or five weeks of the time her temperature returned to normal. If it doesn't, some other lung disease must be suspected. TAURUS (April 20-May Confine your buying to essen- tials. If anything you bought yesterday is not satisfactory, get the matter adjusted promptly. Intuition should be followed. GEMINI (May 21-Jime There is not much voltage in the day for as though you make the wheels turn for everybody else. Avoid putting in too much. Pray for replen- ishment of strength. CANCER (June 21 July Expect considerable indiffer- ent behavior without feeling that it is personal. Use your effort on matters that do not require collaboration. LEO (July 22-Aug. There are endless discussions with nothing done if you start ex- plaining. Have a clear plan and put it into effect. Let the work speak for itself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Scpt. Keeping your personal life separate from business is quite a chore today, but well worth the trouble. Both can gain im- mensely from today's activity. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. Take advantage of a subtle, major opening to secure future projects in your path. Get your routine far enough ahead so you can spot special informa- tion or a shortcut. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 On this routine day there is an extra chance to do crea- tive bits for your own enter- prises. Work alone, but dele- gate heavily where no decisions are involved. PISCES (Feb. 19-March In today's curious patterning, let emotional factors take over. Your feelings may now be a more valid guide than logic through the puzzling condi- tions. Mental Health Problem Acute (CP) Children and adolescents with severe em- otional handicaps are being shunted out of schools and health institutions because of few specialized treatment facil- ities in the city, the Calgary and Region Mental Health Planning Council has learned. Heviewing a special report, council was told the problem of child psychiatric facilities is an issue which merits rapid and massive community action. The problem is especially ac- ute in Calgary, compared with even the larger metropolitan areas of Vancouver and Win- nipeg, said council chairman Dr. K. I. Pearce, also a psychia- trist. He said because of the ex- treme youth of Calgary's gen- eral population, 45 per cent of city residents under the age of 21, it is obvious facilities, staff and programs are lagging far behind the need. The report was submitted by a committee which briefly sur- veyed leading adolescent emo- tional health problems in Cal- gary during 1959. Dr. Ian R. Burgess, a Calgary child health specialist, headed the committee. In a submission to the council, the committee said the problem of supplying adequate diagnos- is and treatment for emotionally disturbed young people appears so great that a two-year study should be undertaken to deter- mine the extent of such dis- ability in Calgary. The report said most patients who require specialized in-hos- pital treatment are not getting it at a stage when help can still be beneficial. A preliminary study showed that about local school students among the in city classrooms require "some" special assistance to correct em- otional disabilities.
