SCIENCE IN YOUR LIFE Heart Pongs His face distorted with pr.in, the actor clutched his chest, pa ; ed for breath and collapsed to the floor as tlie curtain fell. The actor was merely rehearsing a scene. But he accurately portrayed t;;e combination of symptoms the medical world identifies as angina pectoris—a spasmodic, choking pain in the chest. Anyone who has experienced or witnessed an attack of angina pectoris in real \ yi>rr' . L- to forget the cx- ' \ crucinting pain, the strong feeling of impending death. Even after recovery, the heart-attack victim lives in fear of another bout. In angina pectoris, constricted arteries rob the heart of its supply of blood. A heart attack can be touched off by physical exertion and/or emotional strains and pressures. Fear of another attack may well trigger a recurrence, according to medical authorities. With this knowledge, medical scientists are developing drugs to relieve and even to forestall attacks. These new drugs are aimed at both the physical and the emotional conditions involved. For example, one new medicine called Cartrax combines a vasodilator, to relax constricted blood vessels, with an ataraxie, to cr.~c the anxieties that haunt most cardiac patients. Dr. Milton F.ndc of Petersburg, Va., reported definite improvement in 88 per cent of the patients ' he treated with this double-duty drug which simultaneously helps the damaged heart and soothes the anxious mind. Another investigator, Dr. Louis Sclveratone of Tufts University- and the New England Center Hospital, fee's that reduction of emotional strain in patients with angina and other heart conditions may be the ma'-or factor in achieving rchabilita.ion.

The trend is likely to continue in 1958, says County Extension Director M. C. Wangsness of Fayette. He says that the newest alfalfa variety, Vernal, is recommended by Dr. Iver J. Johnson, in charge of farm crops at Iowa State College, for longtime plantings in all parts of Iowa. It is winter hardy, has a high level of wilt resistance and produces outstanding yields both for hay and pasture. Certified seed produced in any area from foundation stocks maintained in the area for which the seed is adapted are satisfactory for Iowa farms, Johnson points out. That means, for instance, that seed produced in California will be suitable for Iowa it it comes from Iowa- adapted foundation stock. Seed that is officially certified to be produced from foundation stock adapted to Iowa will do well here. That's the reason you should buy only certified seed; and you should always read the certified label before you buy. Johnson also recommends Ranger alfalfa for all areas in Iowa. Buffalo is suitable for the southern two-thirds of the state. Arlan- tic, he says, performs better than common alfalfa for 2 and 3* year stands. Ladak, Grimm, CQS^ sack, and Northern Common may be satisfactory for shortiterm stands, he says. Howover, there'* often a shortage of certified seed in these varieties. Uncertified seed hasn't bred true to variety in trials. Red clover is still important for short rotations, especially in eastern Iowa. Johnson says com­ mon red clover of known origin in Iowa and similar latituded is adapted to Iowa conditions. Kenland and Pennscott also produce as well as any red clover v.lrte- tics in Iowa. Midland is also adapted to Iowa, but there isn't much seed available. Dollard and LaSalle are recommended only for northern Iowa. Hubam and Madrid are the recommended svveetclover varieties for Iowa. Ladino is a high producer in meadow mixtures where there is enough moisture. Emprie Variety of bridsfoot trefoil' gets' the top recommendation for Iowa's permanent and long-ration pastures. Seed produced in Iowa and Minnesota from New York Emprie stock performs as well in Iowa as that produced in eastern state. European js not as winter hardy and has to be managed carefully i&5t is to stand heavy grazing. C&scare, Granger, Parker, Mansfjtid and Viking are upright varieties of birdsfoot trefoil developed from European. They yield more hay than Emprie, but not so good for pasture, Iowa 6 is the recommended variety of Korean Lespedeza) for improving pastures in southern Iowa. It's especially useful on pastures too steep to plow. When it comes to grasses, Johnson's recommeandtions are: Bromegrass—Fischer, Lincoln, Achenbach and Southland. Sudangrass—Piper and Greenleaf. (Pipep is desirable for its low 'pj'ussiq acid content, high yield, rapid growth and disease resistance), . Forage Sorghum—Norkan, Axtell, Rox Orange and Wnconla Orange for: late May planting in northern Iowa and late June planting .in southern Iowa: and Atlas for May planting in central and southern Iowa. THE DRIVER'S Blllu , r Barbecued SEAT i-; B || fillets With the revival, on television, of ancient cowboy pictures, it seems appropriate that this column is reminded of the Indian method for naming tribal mem bers. For example, the Ch< ycii- nes had a brave named Big Pig and another named Little Pig. The reason for the names wen' obvious: IxHh were sons of a man. named Pig. and one was bigger than the other. Indian names were not complicated nor were they corrupted by importation from foreign lands. They meant just, what they said. It might be a good idea, in the interest of safety, if motorist were known by their highway habits. For example, if you knew a motorist named Big Pig, you would know he was what is commonly termed a road hog. Or, if there was a driver named Joo Big Horn, you would know that he drives with one foot on the gas and two hands on the horn. In anticipation of the day when motorist will be properly labeled, much like canned fruit and vegetables, here are a few suggestions: William Crying-Brakes. This fellow zooms away from stop signs, roars to the next corner and jams on his brakes at the next stop sign. Jane Arm-Hanger. This gal drives with her arm dangling ovn the window as if signalling a turn but really just air conditioning her elbow. Or pointing out the view. Or something. Certain is the fact that she confuses ino-. torists behind her. Van Strong-Arm. This for the professional truck driver, who gets blamed for everything that happens on the roads but is still the best guy we know of when you need help on the road. Billy Shake-and-Wiggle. In and out of traffic like a bad dream, this character endangers every other motorist on the road. Should something happen to him, few would wonder why, but most hope that he doesn't take ];ult<T barbecued fish fdlcts arc fish out of the realm of the ordinal y.
