Dr. Eiscn. who heads the al- lergy and clinical immunology department of the Montreal C h i I (I r e n's Hospital, also warned that no allergy should be left hay fever, which if untreated and severe enough, could trig- ger an asthmatic attack. He is emphatic about treat- ment based on avoidance. "if a child is allergic to to- matoes, don't give him any. If it's the family pel that's caus- ing the trouble, out he goes. If it's feathers in pillows or stuffed toys, replace them with non-allergenic ones. If it's dust, then keep the house as dust-free as possible." However, the allergist added that when avoidance is simply not feasible, injection and treatment "over a long period of time does build up immunity to an allergen." "It's not at all uncommon .for children to outgrow to a large extent their sensitivity to allergens." SENSmVITY GROWS An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity which cer- tain individuals and frequent- ly children, may develop to- wards substances ordinarily harmless. These may be inhaled or swallowed or taken in through skin contact. Pollens, moulds, house dust, animal or hah' shed by dogs, cats, horses, in pillows, perfumes and a variety ot foods can all produce an al- lergic reaction in an individ- ual.

TOO YOUNG LONDON (AP) Suzy Gilli- brand wrote British Overseas Aiiways Corp. that: she could speak French and Italian, had logged air miles, had first-aid training and could serve meals, and so wanted a job as a stewardess. But Siizy added that she did not qualify yet "because I am only nine years old." any age, and if it becomes se- vere enough and is untreated may lead to asthmatic at- tacks." Hay fever is caused by an allergy to the pollen of trees, grasses at weeds depending on the geographical distribu- tion, it may attack in the spring, summer or fall and iast until frost. When an allergen is taken into the body, tiny celts in the tissues produce special subst- ances called antibodies which attack it. Sensitivity may not appear immediately, and usually does only after a per- son has been exposed repeat- edly. Thus bakers may develop an allergy to flour and fur- riers to fur, and so on. The Allergy Foundation of America conducted a survey on the ragweed pollen index for the United Stales and Canada in an attempt lo pin- point areas to be avoided by severe hay fever sufferers. It also recommended holi- day spots surrounded by lakes or other bodies of water. The foundation's published index report for Use U.S. and Canada came up with some startling statistics. It stated that any city or c o m in unit y with a pollen index above 10 is not recom- mended; between five and 10 is fairly good; below five, good; below one. excellent. On this basis Canada's prov- inces rank as follows: Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfound- land, Prince Edward Island and Manitoba was rated good to fairly good with only Mcrden rising above the level of 10.

In Sault Ste. Marie beauty supply houses selling retail were threatened if they didn't slop. "If you don't quit, we stop the association told the beauty houses. Ninety per cent of Ottawa's beauty operators are associa- tion members and no one in lire capital can open a salon unless he has been hi the business for five years. He must be over 25 years of age and insurable. This means the public is pro- tected as well as the profession, Mr. Hannan said. SAYS WIGS ARE FAD j Roco Lofranco, former presi- dent of the now-defunct Italian Canadian Hairdressers Associa- tion agrees with Mr. Hannan. At least hairdressers, most of them women, are work- ing at home in the Toronto area, he says. They don't have the overhead of the salon own- ers and frequently they don'i even pay income tax, he claims.

In Quebec, the region area was reported excellent but Montreal ilself has a rag- weed pollen index at times as high as IB. MOVE DOESN'T IIISLM says Dr. Eisen. "it's pointless for a family man to give up his job. plunge him- self into financial debt and move (o another area be- cause if, for example, he has an asthmatic child, there's probably mure than one cause that brings on a reaction. "It has been my experience Ihat families who moved all over the country soon re- ported their' child had the same symptoms after a short period of time.'' The Allergy Foundaiiou of America, wilh headquarters in New York, has a variety of pamphlets dealing with aller- gies and asthma. One warns about bee stings which can be dangerous to persons who are allergic. Such persons can be immu- nized against stings from bees, wasps, yellowjackets and hornets, and. says the foundation, this could prove extremely worth while to R sensitive individual. Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: What can a woman do with a husband who refuses to live within his income? He brags to everyone that he is going to buy his daughter a car for graduation when our own car isn't paid for yet. The bills came yesterday and I see he boughc himself another new suit and six new shirts. When I asked what was wrong with the. shirts he has, lie said. "They are white. Nobody wears white sliirts any more." I told him a package of dye costs 25 cents and 1 would dye his shirts red or green if that's what he wants. He got mad and yelled and pounded on the table. I had to close the windows. Sly neigh- bor already has told me she feels sorry for me. My husband never lets on when he's going to buy some- thing. I learn of it when he brings home the boxes or when 1 see the bills. If I complain he says. "You're getting ner- vous." Of course I'm getting nervous. Who wouldn't get ner- vous being in debt all the time? I work at a part-time job to make extra money and all my extra money goes on his back. The minute I pay one bill, he runs up three more. At times 1 get so mad I swear I'll never again use my money to pay another bill of his, but if I don't pay his bills his name will be ruined in tills town and it's my name and UK kids' name, too. What do you see ahead for me? -Sea Of Debt DEAR SEA: More of Hie same. Your husband is an ir- responsible juvenile. He also sounds like a compulsive buyer, which is a sickness. Tell him you are closing all joint charge accounts and if he wank to charge he can open an account under Ms name. When the bills come, the stores will dun HIM and not you. This might not lie a cure but it puts UK; burden where it belongs. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My mother-in-law was one of the loveliest, kindest women who ever lived. The sorrow of her life was the poor relationship she had with her step-daughter, Martha. Martha was out of control from early childhood and no one could get along with her. My mother-in-law had the pa- tience of Job to live under the same roof with that hellcat. Mattha is now 26 years old, has her own apartment and no one ever sees her unless1 she needs something. The day my mother-in-law passed away, Martha went to her house and helped herself lo all the choice silver, china and jewelry. Sne took the finest 'oil paintings off the wall and carted them off. My husband is furious. He had heard his mother say many times that she wanted me to have her lovely tilings. He is llireatening to sue his step-sister. 1 told him I would not permit it. Material things don't mean that much to me. Please back me up. He is on a rampage. Grass DEAR B.C.: 1 agree with you. But I do feel a lawyer slwuki talk to Martha about a more equitable distribution of your mother-in-law's possessions since yom- husband lias some legal rights. How sad Uial your lovely mother-in-law didn'i pul her good intentions down on paper in the form of a will. She could easily have made certain her possessions would be distributed as she wished them to be. urns Is, cello wrap Ib Ground Beef Cross Rib Roast Cnmpfire, by Ihe piece J0USQ06 Campfire, Skinless Sole Fillets olue'VUlage Chdrceol Briquets Hamburger or HtH 8 in pkg.
