The panic-stricken golfer charged into the
clubhouse, grabbed the pro by the arm and said, "You
have to help! I was on the 9th hole and I hit a terrible
slice. The ball sailed right off the course and hit a guy
riding a motorcycle. He lost control and swerved into the
path of a truck. The truck tried to stop but jack-knifed,
rolled over and broke apart. It was carrying hundreds of
bee hives and now the angry bees are attacking everyone
in sight. Its awful! Its a disaster! What
should I do?"
"Well, the first thing is
youve got to keep your arms straight and remember
to get your right hand a bit more under the club."
One day Jimmy went up to his father and

As a kid the idea was that
there was value in havin character.
Course character is built as we all
know. Ever time ya didnt get to
do somethin ya wanted, it created one
more buildin block of character.
Birthdays and Christmas
always contributed to the construction.
Didnt get that special toy, build a
little more character.
Have ta mow the lawn while
the kids across the street were playin
ball? Another contribution. Im
thinkin its probly a good
idea to accumulate all the character ya can,
if for no other reason than to help offset
those occasional flaws that seem to linger
I suppose the greatest
value of gatherin a little character is
the fact that you might recognize it in
others. Its hard to define, but ya know
it when ya see it.
This is some fact, but

By Paul G. Donohue,
Calls for a Prescription
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am writing
to inquire about the mite that invades ones
body and causes dandruff on the head. I have used
Selsun Blue shampoo, but it is taking so long to
see an effect. I wonder if there is an antibiotic
that I could take to get rid of it faster. --
ANSWER: Dandruff is one form of
seborrheic dermatitis -- skin inflammation, along
with an overproduction of skin cells and oil. The
scalp is the place most often affected, but it
also can be found on the sides and bridge of the
nose, the eyebrows, ears, chest and back.
A mite doesnt cause it.
Some speculate that a yeast (fungus) called
Malassezia might be the troublemaker. This yeast
is also found on scalps of those without
dandruff, but those with dandruff have greatly
increased numbers of it.
Quite often, nonprescription
treatments work well for dandruff. Selsun Blue is
a good one. If, after one month of treatment,
theres no progress, then change to another.
Head and Shoulders, Nizoral A-D and T-Gel are a
sample of the many products on drugstore shelves.
Nizoral A-D contains ketoconazole, a medicine
that is active against the Malassezia yeast.
Follow directions carefully. Usually they call
for daily use until theres some
improvement, and then every-other-day use for a
month. From that time on, less-frequent
applications are OK. The condition tends to be
chronic, so a long commitment is the rule.
If youre not making any
progress with over-the-counter preparations, then
a doctor can provide you with a prescription for
more powerful items.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Please tell
me all you know about post-traumatic stress
disorder. I think someone in my family suffers
from it. -- A.F.
ANSWER: Having faced an event
that threatened life or caused serious injury is
the basis for post-traumatic stress disorder. The
event keeps resurfacing in the mind with a
clarity that imparts terror and helplessness, and
sometimes guilt. The remembrance can happen
during the day or in dreams.
