Hope is the attraction being offered to draw these people hope that they can ease the anguish the disease causes. Possibly they can ease some of its symp- toms. Together they can aid researchers and work towards a cure. Marjorie Guthrie is founder and crusader for the Com- mittee to Combat Hunt- ington's disease. She was in Toronto to give the new On- tario chapter a boost and to encourage formation of other Canadian chapters. Mrs. Guthrie is the widow of folksinger Woody Guthrie who died of Huntington's. Their three children don't know yet if they will be afflicted because the disease does not usually start its work until middle age. It is a hereditary but because it is not always not every family knows they are among its po- tential victims.

It does not mean everyone who taps a foot or whose hand shakes has Huntington's. is a neurological deterioration that will show in in slurred speech. People must be exam- ined over a period of years. The husband of a member of the Ontario chapter has been confined in a locked ward in a mental institution because of his involuntary thrashing. He and his wife both know it is not where he should be. The committee was formed in 1967. Since .Mrs. Guthrie interest in re- search has accelerated. The first text book on Hunt- ington's has been produced.
