Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Wodnosdoy, Juno 24, 1970- THE DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Pain Seems Less Severe When. You Know Its Cause By WAYNE G. BKANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Nmsfxpcr Enterprises Assn. On the surface one might sup- pose that a person would fee! pain in proportion to the sever- ity of an injury to a pain nerve. That this is not always so may be seen in the case ol a small boy who catches a punch on the nose in a fist fight. He reacts with anger and r'enewed aggression and feels pain only when he sees blood dripping from his nose or when his mother arrives on the scene to console him. It is practically impossible to tell from a person's behavior how much pain he is suffering. This is because, mixed with the pain, there is often a large ele- ment of fear or anxiety. When trie victim has a pain, the cause of which he doesn't understand, it is always much more severe than if he recognizes the cause. Another factor is the victim's idea of how long the pain will last. It will not "hurt" so much if he believes it will soon go a w a y. Pain can be lessened, too, if you are able to relax completely. This principle is especially rewarding when you must have a tooth treated or deliver a baby. In such situations, the fact that you believe that the endurance of the pain is serv- ing a good purpose or part of an important event will help you stand it. Often when you have an urgent task to perform the work takes precedence over the pain. A headache may dis- appear when you are busy or enjoying a chat with friends only to come back when you are quiet or alone. On the other hand, when a second source of pain is added to one you already have, tire distress may be tripled or New Allowance For Trainees OTTAWA (CP) Trainees in the Canada manpower training program will be eligible for a new commuting allowance July 1, the manpower department said Tuesday. The department will pay transportation costs be- tween a trainee's home and his school when the cost is more than 70 cents a day. The allow- ance maximum will be a week. quadrupled. Whenever, you have a pain, the cause of which is in doubt, determining the cause is more important than relieving the p a i n. Drugs to give temporary relief may in- terfere with finding and elim- inating the cause. For this rea- son, tlie smallest dose of pain reliever needed to make the pain barely tolerable should be taken until your doctor discov- ers the source.

Strangers with in- Differing Views On Abortion CHICAGO (AP) One side said that abortion is a woman's fundamental right and predicted laws against it would be found unconstitutional by the U.S. Su- preme Court. The other side argued that un- restricted abortion would be an echo of the population-control methods of Nazi Germany. These differing views of pro- posed abortion reform marked a ieeply-emotional and often bit- ;er debate at the annual conven- tion of the American Medical Association. The AMA board of trustees rias recommended that the asso- ciation's governing body, the louse of delegates, approve a jasic change in AMA making abortion subject only to a decision between the woman and her doctor. The current AMA policy, set .n 1967, opposes abortion except for therapeutic reasons and in certain circumstances. The committee that heard the testimony Monday will make recommendations to the bsuse of delegates, wrbich will vote on he issue before the end of the convention Thursday. Opponents of the change re- GOREN ON BRIDGE BT CHARLES H. COHEN it me-. >r ni esan TriMt) North-South vulnerablfe South deals.

His stin- giness not only resulted in the loss tf a valuable unit of lime, he ultimately suf- fered the supreme humilia- tion of having to surrender the game fulfilling trick in the very suit which he had shied away from. West opened the six ef spades, the three was played from dummy and -Tvhen East put up the nine, declarer won the trick -with the ten. A diamond was led to the king on which East signaled vigorously with tbe eight. A club was returned and Smith put in the seven. West was in wilh the ten of clubs, {earing that a spade return would present his opponent with trick, ha shifted to the nine of dia- monds. South put up dum- my's ace and Jed another club. When East discarded a diamond, declarer ducked tha trick around to West's jack. d e s p e ration, West shifted to the jack of hearts. South was determined to keep out of the lead, 90 ha permitted the jack to hold. He won the-heart continua- tion in his hand with the ten and cashed the ace on which West discarded a spade. Nova the ace and another club pul West in once more with tiu king. The latter had nothing hul spate left and was at las) obliged to lead that suit for the second time. South won the spade return with the queen in his hand and cashed his long club and the ace of spades. In all, he took three spades and two tricks in each of the other suits. The irony of the deal was that West could have de- fended the contract by merely continuing spades at his first opportunity. Even tho South obtains a trick in the process, West is able to establish the suit before his club stoppers are dislodged, and declarer cannot develop nine tricks in time. When you buy Coke in returnable bottles, you pay only for the Coke- (erred to easier aba-lion in such terms as "infanticide, fetuscide, genocide, murder and killing of defenceless babies." Dr. Vincent J. Collins, chair- man of the department of anes- thesia at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, said: "Infanticide is just around the corner. It just opens up the whole Pan- dera's box cf people control." Dr. Gloria Heffeman of Wil- mette, Til., describing ha'self as a physician, scientist and mother, said: "Abortion is a defeatist and regressive approach. We can rescue astronauts from the moon but we resort to this bar- baric procedure." Tbe National Federation of Catholic Physicians' Guilds said it is unalterably opposed to the proposed change in AMA policy. "This the federa- tion said, "may place the pro- fession of medicine at the dis- posal of government in a man- ner inimical to the proper func- tioning of the profession as was the case in Nazi Germany." Dr. Alan F. Gultmacher, president of Planned Parent- hood-World Population, urged that "abortion be placed in the same category as other health decision between the doctor and his patient." teresting or electrifying ideas give you something to Uiink about.

The dog is the family pet of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Olch and their son, Roger. Hobo spent a lot of time away from home in the last few months and the Olchs wondered where he was. They found out he was at- tending Sunny View School for crippled children. He came home one day with a note pinned to his collar saying: "The boys and girls of Sunny View School would like Hobo's owner to know hpvy.much they enjoy Hobo's visits to their room." Today, the family learned that Hobo has been promoted to primary level for Septem- ber. Mrs. Olch got a report card in the mail from teacher Mrs. E. B. Hunniset. But the teacher wasn't en- tirely pleased with Hobo's performance: "A slight irregularity in at- tendance is our only prob- lem." Mr. Olch had the final word as he looked at the dog. "He's a road scholar." Siviss Women Win Another Vole Victory BERN (Reuters) Swiss women won another victory today in their century-old battle for the vote. The lower house of the legisla- ture approved 134 to 0 an amendment to the constitution which would give women voting rights in federal elections. If the proposal is also ap- proved by the upper house in the autumn, Switzerland's male electorate will be asked to en- dorse the bill in a national ref- erendum early next year. The majority of Switzerland's menfolk have till now stub- bornly resisted pressure to grant their women of voting age rights at federal elections.
