CANCER Uime 21 July Home and family affairs continue interesting, with some cle- plante Dear Dr. Lamb My 22-year old daughter has had 11 planter's warts removed from tier feet. She had three burned out with acid and turned to having them removed surgically. The results are always the same. They form again and again. Could you please tell me what causes these and if there is any cure. She fears being crippled from all of this surgery-Dear Reader It is common for these warts to recur if Ihey are simply excised. They can also be confused with other problems so the first step is making a coned diagnosis. Dr. Richard L. Dobson, professor of dermatology at the University of Oregon Medical School doesn't recommend surgical excision because of the frequent recurrence with this form of treatment. He recommends paring off the top of the wart and then applying a 40 per cent salicyclic acid plaster which is taped in place for one week, then he removes the plaster and pares off as much more of the wart as possible. The next step is to use 95 per cent trichloroacetic acid and a week later he pares it again followed by a second application of acid. This procedure is repeated at weekly intervals until tho wart is gone. Obviously this is a procedure for physi-icians. At the end of the treatment there may be a hemorhagic blister and after it is E. LAMB, M. D. will expel r's warts? the wart Is cured. In other cases he merely recommends a daily application of 10 per cent formalin solution and has the patient gently pare the wart regularly. This often takes quite some time. Treating planter's warts Is not simple and as you know because of their location they can be both uncomfortable and disabling. Dear Dr. Lamb About four months ago I had a cataract operation, removing the lens from my left eye. The operation was performed by an eminent eye surgeon and the result was perfect. My vision Is 20-20 with contact lens. Now my problem is that the doctor approved my reiuiji to work with permanent restriction against lifting weights of more than 40 pounds. I work for the U.S. Postal Service which requires that I be able to lift 70 pounds. The Post Office will not allow me to go back to work with this restriction and wants to retire me from service. I am only 54 years old and have a good work record but not enough time for a reasonable annuity. In addition, I do not want to retire. Please give me your opinion as to the probability that this operation should handicap my in this manner. It is very seldom that I ever have to lift packages of 70 pounds. The letter pouch never weighs more than 35 pounds. Dear Reader There are many people who have had cataract surgery who return to full normal activity if that is the only problem they have. 1 strongly suspect that your doctor was unaware of the amount of difficulty this restriction was going to cause you. He was probably trying to help you. It seems to me that you ought to go see him at once and explain to him your situation and see If he wants to reconsider his help. Social contacts are lively.

Early in life, Bunyan was beset by religious visitations, one of which bade him give up the pleasure of church-bell ringing, else the steeple would fall on him. At age 32 he was imprisoned for 12 years for heretical preaching, during which time he wrote Pilgrim's Progress. He wrote about 60 books before his death in 1638, Including Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, one of the world's finest autobiographies.

Ask Bees in winter Andy sends a complete 20-volumc set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Cheryl Lacerick, age 12, of Wickliffe, Ohio, for her question: What do bees do when winter conies? A little honey now and then provides the body with rich nourishing food. This delicious ar.d nutritious menu item, of course, is provided by the honey bees. No doubt this is why so many sensible students are interested in learning all they can about these amazing insects. Flowers and honeybees belong together. They need and depend on each other. But the fragile flowers cannot abide the cold and plants do not blossom during the winter. This deprives the hees of the nectar and pollen they use to make honey and other bee foods. Besides, they can't abide the cold either. So when winter comes, they tuck themselves inside their warm, cosy hive and live on their stores of sweet nourishing honey. During the busy summer season, most worker bees work themselves to death in about six weeks. Hence, many arc ready to perish in the fall. At this time, the queen slops laying eggs and no new workers are born. The survivers turn their attention to sealing cracks in the hive with weatherproof, water proof wax. They also make sure that their waxy while cells arc stuffed with winter supplies of honey and safely sealed. All summer they fed and Andy ed the male drones, who do no work. Before the first frost, the pampered drones are rousted outside to perish in the cold But the queen mother is fed and tended as usual. When winter arrives, a lure of about workers, drones and growing bees is reduced lo perhaps surviving workers plus their queen mother. Their cosy hive seals out the wintry weather and there is no need to leave home until spring brings beck the flowers. Inside the hive, the furry little bees bundle themselves together in a big round ball. This helps to share and hold in the warmth. Apparently Ihey feel the cold because the bees in the middle of the furry ball, where things are warmer, keep changing places with those on the outside. Obviously they must eat. though they do not need as much food as they do during the busy summer season. Now and then, each worker sips a snack from the honey stored in waxy combs. She lakes just so much and no more than her share. In this way, the food supply is rationed to last through the winter. There is also a supply of royal jelly made especially for the queen. If her favorite food runs out, she shares the rations of ordinary honey with her daughters. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should he mailed lo Ask Andy, P.O. Box IK.
