CHICAGO (AP)- When the moon s-

Ralph Morris, a professor of phr
macology at the university's medical
center, said he studied more than tOo
patients over five years, and found tlfit
bleeding ulcers and chest pains becam
more frequent in two-thirds of th
patients at times of a full moon.
MORRIS SAID his preliminatr
research is designed to "sound a wa

as ulcers, should be more careful atid
take their medicine during full-mgofl
periods, he said.
His findings are discussed in the Jan.

While no one has pinpointed a causE
