Warren T. Ferrell County Agent Plants That Cause Birth !Defects Birth defects ,discovered in ~arm animals concerns cows graz- ing .bealrweed, also .called lupine. Crooked calf disease -- the de- formity which results - had also been laid orginally to bad genes or to nutritional deficiencies. Yet the A'RS scientists showed that certain species of lupine are the cause. Comparisons of cows fed lup- ine du~ing various stages o~: early pregnancy show that the worst lime for grazing on contam- inated ranges is between the 40th ,and 70th day. Calves born to these cows have twisted and malal'igned leg ,bones, twis'ted backs or necks, or cleft palates. Slight to moderate malformations result, trials indicate, even when cows eat lupine after the nost critical time. ,Locoweed, or Astralagus, caus- es skeletal deformities in lambs and calves similar to the defects brought on by lupine. Many young, though not deformed, are small and weak at birth. Current research suggests that other plants may .cause abortion or malformation of the develop- ing fetu.s. La,thyrus plants, cer- tain species of .peas, are ,being in- vestiga.ted just now, with double significance ,man, since in the (Middle East, humans as well as animals eat this plant. Also, certain drugs, such as ami- n.apterin, are under study for birth defects .caused in man and animals. This drug, a vitamin-B inhibitor, is used to treat leuk- emia. ARS scientists working on ,poisonous plant ,pro,blems think .that discoveries of birth defects linked to natural foods may well be important landmarks in the ultimate prevention of much suf- fering and hardship in .both man and animals. Know How to Apply First Aid For Frostbite ]if you suffer frostbite this winter, would you know how to treat it? Old frostbite remedies, such as ru:hbing with snow or massaging and thawing a frost- bitten limb slowly in cold water, are incorrect first aid practices, points ou,t a University of Ver- mont extension health education specialist. Frostbitten tissue should be dipped in comfortably warm water until the normal fleshy color returns to the fingertips or :toes. Avoid both rubbing and cold. Treating a ,cold injury with cold makes about as much sense as treating a burned foo,t 'by put- ting it in a warm oven. Navy experiments in Alaska show that deeply frozen limbs thawed very slowly in snow, cold :water, or even at room tempera- ture, and must be ampu,tated more often than ,those thawed faster in warm water baths. ,Rubbing can rupture skin cells and interfere with .blood circula- tion, resulting in infection, gan- grene, and eventual amputation. Gentle treatment is critical. To thaw a frostbitten tissue properly, submerge ~,he limb in ,warm ,water that is comfortable \ Open Evenings Until 8 P.M. Dec. 18 through Dec. 23 Ph. 283-2082 to the unfrozen hand but not over 104. As soon as a flush ex- tends to the tips of the fingers or toes, the lim~b is thawed and should be removed from water immediately. For ~rozen ears and noses, aP- ply soft cle.ths soaked in warm water. Handle the frozen part gently. Always see a doctor. Farm Weed Costs Weed ,control measures cost farmers an estimated $2~/2 bil- lion a year, while approximately 13.5% of their crop production is still lost to weeds, according 1o Robert Parker, extension weed specialist at South Dakota Un- iversity. Only soil erosion rep- resents a greater economic loss than weeds. IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE SIXTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT TY OF CROOK AND STATE OF WYOMING In the Matter o .the Estate of John R.
