New starts be- come increasingly easier as the year matures and you get used to different conditions. You find your responses changed, partly toward in- creased acceptance of tilings and people, partly toward making definite firmly willed choices. Today's natives are interested in unusual ideas, willing to take personal risks to see their plans brought in- to reality. ARIES (March 21-Apvil 19V.

Rules for seeing a doctor when you develop a cold Most people who have a cold r mild respiratory infection do not see a doctor. This isn't too surprising since more than one of every two people has a cold in the winter and one out of five during the summer. But a number of serious diseases that need medical attention start or resemble a simple respiratory illness. How do you decide if you need to see a doctor? Let me give you a few rules. Call your doctor if: have weakness be- cause of age; have lung disease, rheumatic heart disease, weak- ness bscause of any heart trou- ble, diabetes, or am' serious illness; body temperature by mouth is 182 degrees, or the fever lasts more than three days; occur, there is a 3r- sistent severe cough, chsst pain or difficulty in breathing, swol- len, painful neck glands, sore ears, or vomiting. If you treat yourself for mild infections %vitbout the problems I just listed, there are some dos and don'ts. The goal is to make you more comfortable, since you can't cure most of these illnesses. Adults can take two five- grain (0.3 gram) aspirin tablels one to four times daily. Chil- dren should take no more than one-third (20 milligrams) for each five pounds of body weight; three or four times a day. A number of effective cough medicines can be bought with- out a prescription. You should find out if there is any particu- lar one your family doctor rec- ommends. You shouldn't take nose drops or use inhalers unless your doctor approves of the one you use. Some of those avail- able contain drugs harmful to patients with heart disease and other medical problems. Some actually aggravate inflamed nasal passages and do not pro- mote recovery. Antibiotics cannot cure most colds and related respira- tory Infections. These viruses are not sensitive to antibiotics. Doctors give antibiotics for a "strep throat" or an infection caused by a germ other than a virus. One form of virus pneu- monia responds to some anti- biotics (not Although antihistamines are popular, they don't do much for colds. They are effective in treating allergies with a runny nose that resemble a common cold. They are also a good sedative and induce sleep, In this way they make some pa- tients more comfortable. Sleep- iness though, can cause a driver to be a traffic hazard. Alcohol has no beneficial ef- fects upon a cold other than its sedative action, which re- sults in mood elevation. Getting plenty of rest is wise. It is not, hoxvever, necessary to rest in bed. The horizontal posi- tion alone weakens the body. I usually recommend that adults and older children sit up quiet- ly a good hit or each day while resting. Of course, small chil- dren may have to he kept in bed to restrict activity. But re- member, it is rest, uot bed rest, that is needed. Dear Dr. Lamb I am 30 and expecting my fifth child. What do you think of women having then- tubes tied or cut in such Dear Reader This proced- ure has much to recommend it. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN CO H TM ClikiM TrftiMl Both vulnerable.
