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. ^92 ewA - 3T 4?-\ Best Models: L-R ~ Teresa Henley.

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 AFTER COLLISION The demolished uuto is being hauled away while 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.

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. <* nose is stuffy and runny, eyes watery, red and sometimes swollen, he might be a mouth breather, often has dark circles under his eyes and occasionally has a low grade fever. These symptoms are made worse by repeated exposure. The sufferer is, indeed, a pitiful individual. 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 his physician. 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.
