D. affects emotions hair on the top of my legs and on my upper lip has come in dark and long. I was wondering if perhaps hormone shots would help? Dear Reader Hair is a natural part of the body. Our ideas of how much hair women should have is partly cultural. In some countries, for example, hair on the legs of women is not considered unattractive. Of course, serious hormone imbalance can cause major hair problems but the hair problems most people worry about are normal hair growth. Hormone shots are not indicated for this. There is a thriving business in removing unwanted normal hair. Almost all depilatories sold for this purpose are al-kalizers and soften or dissolve the hair. Because hair is really the same chemical material as the skin these preparations are often very irritating and can be damaging. To prevent problems one must follow the directions with the package very carefully. These agents usually need to be used two or three times a month. Individuals who have had skin irritation problems from soaps or detergents should probably not use them. A better solution is to have electrical epilation done. Each hair follicle is destroyed by electricity. It takes severa treatments to be sure that all the individual hair follicles are destroyed but the effect is the emotional status of a and has a lot to do with lealth. 1 try not to judge whether .hlngs people believe or do are -ight. or morally correct. This n-ould be imposing my moral standards and beliefs on others. t seems better to consider vhat is harmful or not harm-ul to a person or lo other people. With that philosophy there ire some conflicts with the cachings of some practitioners )f Christian Science. Specifical-y, does a child with acute appendicitis deserve medical at-ention? Without it the appen-Ibt will rupture and usually the will die. This type of problem raises the interesting philosophical luestion of whether or not a 'hild should be denied medical attention because of the religious beliefs. What should be done about a child inured in ai accident who is Bleeding internally if his par-snts don't believe in medical ittentdon? Since you asked the luestion you must have some noughts on the matter. What o you think? Dear Dr. Lamb I would much appreciate it if you give me some informa-ion on how to get rid of un-ranted hair. It seems that Mud daubers Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia lo Cathy Ringland, age 9 of LaPuente, California, for her question: How are mnd daubers different Irom wasps? There are different wasps and one of them is called the mud dauber. All the wasps build nests to shelter their babies. Some chew up wood to make large brown papery nests for hundreds of babies. The mud dauber wasp models a nest of soft mud that dries in the sun. One egg and a supply of food is placed in each little compartment. The wasps called hornets and yellow jackets wear bright yellow and black stripes. So do most of the other wasps. But some of the mud daubers wear different outfits. But they are true wasps with waspy bodies, waists and stingers. In our country, the one we are most likely to see is the blue mud dauber wasp. Her name is just right because her body is blue and she daubs gobs of mud to model a nesl. The time to look for her is in spring or early summer. The place to look is around a stream or pond, where there is plenly of soft mud. Her slender blue body has an extra-long, skinny wasp waist and she looks like a fairy creature on gauzy wings. But remember she is a genuine wasp with a genuine waspy stinger in her tail. She is gathering gobs of mud for a very important job so anybody who gets in her way is likely to get stung. The busy mother may plaster her gobs of mud on a stone wall, or under the edge of a roof. She totes the dirt in her strong jaws. She mixes it with spit to pat it and smooth it into the right shape. Some daubers build a neat row of long tubes. Other types build a hollow ball. When tlie soft mud dries hard, you almost need a hammer to break it. Each hollow is made to hold just one egg, plus lots of food for the baby. When the nest is almost finished, the wasp flies off to capture the right food. When the eggs hatch into baby grubs, Uiey need lots of meat. Some young daubers need spiders, some need certain kinds of caterpillar meat. The mother knows the right kind of food for her children. She stings the spiders or caterpillars to para, lyze them and stuffs a few into each compartment. Then she adds one egg and seals up the door. Inside the little cradle of mud, the baby grub eats and eats. At last it changes into a pupa and sinks into a deep sleep. Then a miracle happens inside the tight pupa skin. The grub changes into a grown-up insect, just like its parents. When the pupa hatches, out comes a winged wasp with srtoug jaws ready to gnaw a hole through the hard mud walls. The young wasp crawls out, dries off and flies off into the summery air. Several other mud wasps wear waspy black and yellow, though all of them have extra-long skinny waists like the blue dauber. One is the potter wasp. She molds a round ball that looks like a thimble sized pitcher. She places a row of these neat mud pitchers on a twig. Each one is stuffed with beetle grubs. Before she seals the top, she spins a silken Ihread lo dangle one tiny egg from inside the lid. Most of the mud wasps do a lot of gwd because they capture greedy caterpillars.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 3871) Early del oi blood SASKATOON (CP) Rapid md early detection of blood lots can be made while these xrtentially fatal blockages are orming in the leg, Dr. Alex S. jallus of Hamilton said Friday. By using the detection proce-ure on patients who run the lighest risk of suffering a fatal lot in the lung, it should be jossible to reduce deaths from uch incidents. In addition, the procedure ports leg-vein clots, of which n estimated half are "missed" t present because patients may ave no apparent symptoms of heir presence. These clots are dangerous be-ause, if dislodged, they may ravel along the veins to the ungs where they have a high wtential as a killer. Dr. Callus reported to the Ca-adian Cardiovascular Society n 62 patients checked before md after surgery to detect clots orming. .ABEL FIBRINOGEN The technique involves labeling fibrinogen, a protein part of le blood that is the essential ngredient of a blood clot, with ninute amounts of radioactive xiinc. A scanning device, something kc a geiger counter, can detect ic radioactive fibrinogen when t begins collecting at one spot o form a blood clot. Monitoring of the radioactive brinogcn, injected into the lood just before an operation, ontinucs for about a week- clots is the crucial period in clot formation after surgery. Practically every clot that gets to the lungs and kills reaches the pulmonary artery from an original site in a leg vein, where only half the clots are detected at present. Even those which do not kill can be incapacitating until removed or dissolved by drugs. PREVENT EMBOLISMS "The field of prevention is rewarding said Dr. Gallus, 31-year-old resident in hematol-ogy at St. Joseph's Hospital. "We try to prevent catastrophic embolisms." An embolism is a clot. When tlie monitor of the radioactive iodine signals when a dot is starting to form in the leg, the hospital can administer heparin or other drugs now used frequently to thin the blood and reduce clotting risks in such cases as persons who are prone to strokes. Patients who are old, fat, cancerous or immobilized run the greatest risk from vein clots. These are the patients who would be candidates for the radioactive fibrinogen procedure if they are in hospital for ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN direr a slight opening, on lc lint v n.

Dr. Agram Hoffcr of Saskatoon and Dr. Allan Colt of New York gave their views at a public meeting sponosrcd by the Canadian Schizophrenia Foundation. Dr. Hotter said "people are not bom with schizophrenia they are born with a vitamin B.1 dependency condition." He and Dr. Cott recommended vitamin treatment and a diet from which sugar, wheat and excessive milk are eliminated.
