An informed public is essential to a democratic society such as ours. Whether it is news of the
community, the state or the world, it is important that the newspaper contains something of in
terest for each generation ? teenagers, adults and senior citizens. Grade school students learn
how to read the newspaper and make use of the wealth of information it provides regularly. As
they grow older, their points of interest change. Whether they use their newspaper as the source
of information about politics, entertainment, opinions, advertised products and services or cur
rent ideas, it is important that there is "something for everyone" on a regular basis. To
safeguard a democratic society, reporters, editorial writers and alt departments of newspaper
publishing must make available the information vital to suttain this free nation.

summer, until the birds fly south in
I'm talking about the pollen
season -- that devilishly trying time
for people whose bodies can't
tolerate the tons of microspores
that seemingly saturate the air
throughout most of summer.
First, it's the pine pollen ?? the
yellowish dust you see on your car
and window sills and even in your

across the road and on the side of an embankment a worker is putting crane
cables in place on the damaged cement-carrying tanker truck following the
April 13 collision on U.S. 401 about II miles north of Raeford. The crane
and a Luke Rim Fire Department truck can be seen in the other photo.
Dimiiu Annette Muinor was hospitalized in Fayetteville for treatment of
injuries she suffered: and the truck driver. Kenneth Ray Hair of Linden,
and the cur driver. Debra Lynn Johnson of Fayetteville. also were injured
not seriously enough to require admission to the hospital. Dimiiu

house in the early spring. Within a
few days hardwood pollen takes
over. From the middle of May until
August, allergy sufferers have to ?
contend with various grass pollens.
Then nature, mercifully, backs off
-- but only briefly. About the first
of September, we are hit with the
most potent pollens of all --
ragweed, cocklebur and goldenrod.
So it goes until frost.
You can spot the allergy sufferer
straight away. He is either carrying
several handkerchiefs or a box of
Kleenex. He sneezes intermittenly. <*

watery, red and sometimes swollen,

often has dark circles under his

made worse by repeated exposure.
The sufferer is, indeed, a pitiful
What is an allergic reaction? It is
an abnormal response of the body
to an irritant from the outside 3
world. About 25 percent of the
American population suffers from
some kind of allergic condition.
The condition can affect either the
upper or lower respiratory tract.
People may call it hay fever or a
spring cold. When tests are done,
the condition usually turns out to
be an allergic overload -- something
in the air which a person is not able
to tolerate. 1
Probably one-half or more of the
victims don't realize it is an allergic
problem. A physician can usually
tell by how the inside of the nose
looks, as well as the inside of the
eyelids. "Strange part of it is some
people have sneezing, itchy eyes,
some blocked ears or, sinuses, but
nearly all with an allergic reaction
have afternoon fatigue," one doctor
explained. "It's a tip-off that we ??
are dealing with an allergic struggle *
somewhere in the body."
He warned that there are some
dangerous allergic conditions --
particularly the group of asthma
problems in children. Sometimes
wheezing becomes so pronounced
that the sufferer can't get enough
air in the chest to sustain con
sciousness. Many times a person ^
who is suddenly exposed to some- *?
thing to which he is allergic will
develop such severe shortness of
breath that he is not able to move
about. He cautioned that if a
person has troublesome allergy
symptoms that are not easily
managed with medication, whether
upper respiratory symptoms such
as a stuffy nose or itching eyes or
lower respiratory symptoms such as
asthmatic wheezing, he should see
He said that after it has been
determined that a person has an
allergy problem, the first line of
management might be something
like Dristan or Contac capsules or
tablets. He noted all these have
antihistamines and are designed to
minimize allergy symptoms, but
you should be aware that they may
cause some drowsiness. First and,%
foremost, though, you should avoid
things you know may cause an
allergic reaction. On the other
hand, "when an allergic problem
becomes so severe that it is
recurrent -- such as three or four
colds per year or nasal obstruction
to the point where you cannot work
or sleep -? then you should consult
your physician because relief is
readily available," he concluded.
In a succeeding article allergic i
reactions to insect stings and bites
will be discussed.
