This German en- gineer-inventor started working on a i-otary type engine in the 1520s. Other inventors helped and in the 1930s, a rather clum- sy model proved thai the job vas passible. More inventors leloed to improve the model. Still more are needed to make :he Wankel a suitable, anli-pol- .ution engine for our automo- biles.

The skin rash usually breaks out along distribution of the nerve. Since one of the nerves jetween the ribs is commonly involved, it is not unusual for the rash to go along the cur- vature of the rib. It how- over, involve a nerve with the distribution along the side 01 the leg or even over the face Unfortunately, the treatment nvf this problem is unsatisfac tory. I note tliat Dr. Richard L Dobson, professor of dermatol ogy at the University of Ore gon Medical School has re- cently written that the treat ment of the uncomplicated casi is entirely symptomatic. Thi means that doctors give var ious medicines that have til general effect of relieving pain In some instances aspirin enough, and in other instances strong medicine is needed. Dr. Dobson does not rccom mend salves and lotions, finds that they are irritating In his opinion a dry dressin changed daily is the best local medicine. If Uie rash involves the face, sometimes the hor- mone cortisone or related .edications arc given. If an- Jier infection involves the rea of the rasii then tlie bac- -ria tlvat's causing this super- infection has to be dentified and the proper treat- ment given, usually by pills or hots. The rash usually lasts only TO or three weeks, but about 0 per cent of the people who jave this problem will have esidual neuralgia, this means hat the nerve that was involv- ed in the first place continues o cause severe pain. Tois is cry difficult to treat. Dr. Dob- son recommends spraying the aainful area with one of the efrigerant sprays such as chloride. This sometimes elievcs tlie pain at least tem- porarily and in a few instances iroduces permanent relief. If the pain persist'! for a long period of time Ihe palient is iften sent to a neurosurgeon and if the nerve involved is superficial or not essential to vital body function, sometimes surgical relief of the pain is attempted. Dear Dr. Lamb I have beard lhat if a person drinks liquid less than one hour be- fore meals, during meals, or less than ore hour after meals, their arthritic pains will be much greater than if they ab- stain from drinking during these periods. Should this idea be practiced by an erthritic sufferer? Dear Header This Is pure nonsense. Drink your water whenever you please and it will have nothing to do with your arthritis. wHoSAVS?
