The estimates cover proposed de- partmental expenditures for the fis- cal year ending Uarch 31- ,1947, ana cover so many topics that the whole work of the ercemal affairs depart- inent can be brought into debate. Vifhile this discussion is going on in committee the commons wUi be Eble to proceed with other business. "When the estimates are reported lack to the commons they may be debated again, bus iz is ex- pected any such debate would be brief because members wriU have obtained in committee any informa- tion they wanted.

Ths house agricultural commit- tee, for instance, could handle the agriculture department estimates Which came up for study last Xhurs day and rriday. At the end of those two days, only four items in the estimates had been passed by the commons. Those attending sit- tings on the two days were meni- fcers from fanning communities who felt the need of putting forward their views on agricultural policies. Members for Eon-rural areas found themselves with, uo sessional io de. with, livestock, which, we would pro- duce if we increased our grass acre- age, because when livestock sre ready for market they must go.

ILDJ VEINS, INJECTION OK OPERATION A few years ago operation was the usual method of treatment of hemmorhoids (piles) with full precaration for thetic, surgeon snd assistant sur- geon, weeks in hospital, loss of tune lor work. Today we see hundreds of thousands of cases treated by in- anaesthetic, no hospital stay, no Joss of time f rom work. The ouestioii arises as to why are no: all cases of hemorrhoids treat- ed far injection. Because the Injection method !s so simple, ia the early days many hemorrhoids were injected thai sere not suitable for injection- In other words while all cases of hemorrhoids can be treated by ssirgery, only what are called "ia- hemorihoids can be treated by injection. It was the injection of outer" or external hemorrhoids" that caused complications and put. the injection method into iil-repate lor a sime. are called outer or external hemorrhoids, all of which require operation, are those that are down two inches or less from the open- ing, or any hemorrhoids that come down and'out of the bowel requir- ing more or less force to put them back up isiside the bov.ei with the assistance of vaseline or witch hazel. Hemorrhoids well up (two inches or more) inside the bowel can be injected with one or other of the various hardening solutions which destroys them. The injecting is dose in the surgeon's office, thus, as stated above, doing away with operation, hospital stay, and loss of time from work. An injection once a week or oftener will destroy the usual number of hemorrhoids pres- ent in a few weeks. The tendency to varicose veins runs in some families and to hemorrhoids often in those with a sluggish liver and gall bladder. Where there is a tendency to vari- cose reins, the stools should be kept soft by eatin? plenty of fruit and vegetables. This prevents constipa- tion which, by causing the Indi- vidual to strain at stool, put. pres- sure on the veins and causes hemorrhoids. Dsspite the face that paraffin or mineral oil may prevent; "'full" absonsuon of all the vitamins from the food, it does help to pre- vent hemorrhoids by lubricating the waste matter in the bowel.

And I know a lot of men who were told by N.E.S. that they had no jobs to offer, who went out themselves and either found jobs or started up businesses whicn are now well on the way to suc- cess.
