Tuesday, August 20, 1974 HOPK (ARK.) STAR page Five School meal policy Hope Public Schools today announced its policy for free and reduced-priced meals and free milk for children unable to pay the full price of meals and milk served under the National School Lunch, School Breakfast, and Special Milk Programs. Local school officials have adopted the following family size and income criteria for determining eligibility: Family Size INCOME GUIDELINE No Charge If Income is Below 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 Each additional family member 2,910 3,830 4,740 5,640 6,480 7,310 8,060 8,810 9,510 10,190 10,860 11,530 670 Reduced Charge If income is Below 4,080 5,360 6,630 7,900 9,070 10,240 11,290 12,340 13,320 14,260 15,200 16,140 940 Children from families whose income is at or below the levels shown are eligible for free or reduced-price meals or free milk. In addition, families not meeting these criteria but with other unusual expenses due to unusually high medical expenses, shelter costs in excess of 30 per cent of income, special education expenses due to the mental or physical condition of a child, and disaster or casualty losses are urged to apply. , Application forms are being sent to all homes in a letter to parents. Additional copies are available at the principal's office in each school. The information provided on the application is confidential and will be used only for the purpose of determining eligibility. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year. In certain cases foster children are also eligible for these benefits. If a family has foster children living with them and wishes to apply for such meals and milk for them, it should contact the school. In the operation of child feeding programs, no child will be discriminated against because of race, sex, color, or national origin. Under the provisions of the policy the school principal will review applications and determine eligibility. If a parent is dissatisfied with the ruling of the principal, he may make a request either orally or in writing to Mr. Joe Barentine, Superintendent of Schools, for a hearing to appeal the decision. The policy contains an outline of the hearing procedure. Each school and the office of the superintendent has a copy of the complete policy which may be reviewed by any interested party. Manhattan bank robbed NEW YORK (AP) — A man armed with a valise, a threat and unshakeable bravado made off with $157,000 in cash from an uptown savings bank after telling a bank officer he was prepared to blow the place up. The robber, about 30, told the terrified woman he had dynamite in the bag. He waited 20 minutes Monday evening while a half dozen unsuspecting depositors and a dozen other em- ployes went about their business, and while the bank officer twice left his sight to go into the vault. He escaped with the cash in an attache case. In the valise he left behind were railroad flares made up to look like explosives. Police said the haul, at the Manhattan Savings Bank office at 86th Street and Third Avenue, was the largest in the area since a Westchester County bank was held up for $236,000 in September 1972. Police said the woman didn't sound the alarm either time she went into the vault because she was too scared. Police said the man had walked up to the officer, Kathleen Stephenson, with a request for a mortgage loan, then opened the valise, displaying the bogus explosives, and demanded $200,000 in cash. When she said the vault was closed, he told her she could set its time lock to open in 15 minutes—which she did. When the vault opened, she scooped up stacks of money without counting it, police said. Most was in hard-to-trace $50 and $20 bills, but $50,000 was in easily traced $100 bills delivered Monday morning from the Federal Reserve, Two wounded inshootout TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Tulsa man engaged police in a two-hour gun battle Monday night that left one policeman and the man wounded. Dwight Walker, 23, and policeman Charles Lewis, 21, were listed in "very satisfactory" condition at a Tulsa hospital after the Shootout. The fight began about 9 p.m. when police responded to call that a man was threatening to kill somebody. Officers said they were met by gunfire when they arrived at Walker's house. Lewis was pinned down in the front yard until other officers—under the cover of heavy fire—managed to pull him to safety. Officers said Walker's mother was in the house with him when the shooting began but escaped out the back door. Traffic in a 25-block area was blocked off as the fight progressed and an estimated 1,000 persons gathered nearby. Officers called repeatedly for the man to surrender but each time the call was answered by gunfire. Police then poured tear gas rounds into the house. A single blast from a shotgun sent Walker to the ground as he left the residence.

Box 1915, Texarkana, Texas 75501. Dr. Lamb ointment from physician By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB - In one of your columns you wrote about skin cancer. You said some spots that are really not yet cancer, but the kind that may become cancer, can be removed by various skin ointments now available. Can you please list some of these ointments so that I may buy them? DEAR READER - 1 received a lot of mail asking about that. Those ointments are not something you can do yourself. And, you can t obtain them without a prescription. One of these I was thinking about is Efudex. But these ointments must be used with care. Dermatologists use other ointments as well for the same purpose. It is probably not a good idea to be trying to remove skin spots on your own. Your doctor needs to see what they are and be sure you get the right treatment. And, in many instances, for the raised furry spots and surface spots that sometimes turn into cancer he can give you a generalized treatment for them. I think I mentioned before that a medical salve like Efudex can even identify cells that are about to undergo changes that still look perfectly normal. So, if you have these raised spots that doctors call "keratosis" and similar skin problem, your doctor can do something about them without having to cut all of them off. DEAR DR. LAMB - My mother is a diabetic and when I was younger she would tell me that I could never marry a man whose mother was also a diabetic. She said we would have deformed babies. Recently my husband s mother was told she would be placed on diabetic tablets. This has made me very con- cerned about having children. Is there any medical truth to what I was told? Is it possible that this factor may cause abnormal children? DEAR READER - That is a bit of an exaggeration. You do have the chance that some of your children will be diabetic. That does not mean they will be deformed. I would guess from the nature of your letter that you are still pretty young. Actually about 10 per cent of the people over 65 do have diabetes. The rate of diabetes increases with age. We don t know yet whether or not you will be a diabetic during your life time or even whether or not your husband will be. If both of you are diabetic, then it will be likely that your children will be, but perhaps not until they too are past 65. Both of you may be a carrier of the trait and then some of your children may be diabetic. One of you may be a carrier and the other person be normal. Then more than likely none of the children will have diabetes. So, what you are really worrying about is what are the chances of the children having diabetes, and if they do, when will they have it. I think beyond that you should forget about the problem. I would, though, plan on having periodic checks for yourself, your husband, and children, including at least a blood test to see if you have developed any evidence of diabetes. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb s booklet on blood sugar, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Blood Sugar" booklet. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

Radio City Station, New York NY 10019 Corn crop needs rain WASHINGTON (AP) - Recent rains have failed to promote significant improvement in the nation's sun-parched corn crop, the Agriculture Department says. Officials said Monday that more rain is needed in drought- stricken corn states to rebuild soil moisture supplies and boost corn production materially. Rainfall and temperatures this month have been favorable enough to sustain a recent corn production estimate pointing to a 1974 corn crop of 4.97 billion bushels, down 12 per cent from the 1973 harvest and far below indications earlier this year, officials said. In an analysis described as a "quick mid-month review," the department said "rainfall during the first half of August over much of the Plains and Corn Bell stales apparently did not promote significant gains in corn production, although soybeans could benefit from the moisture." The latest soybean crop production estimate from the department projected this year's yield at 1.31 billion bushels, down 16 per cent from last year. HIS SWEET TOOTH DID HIM IN NOBLESVILLE, Ind.

FOR A SERIOUS PURPOSE NEW YORK (AP) - The comic book has joined the more serious text books of education to help developing readers. "The Electric Company," television's contribution to easing education's reading crisis, has published "Spidey Super Stories," a new four-color comic starring the super-hero "Spider-Man" as an education device. While not the first time the comics have been used as an educational tool, Spider-Man's adventures for the Electric Company are believed to be the first in which educational researchers have applied their knowledge of the way in which young children — particularly beginning readers — approach the printed comic book page.

Sawhill says. Sawhill said it has not been determined how severe the shortage might be, but he said residential use would not be affected by any shortfall. The federal energy chief did not specify at a "Project Independence" hearing on Monday what plants might be affected by a shortage of natural gas, but heavy users include the chemical and auto industries. The hearing here was one of a series through which Sawhill's agency is attempting to make the United States self-sufficient in energy production within 10 years. Sawhill predicted that by 1985 the United States will be able to produce all but 25 per cent of its oil needs and all but 10 to 13 per cent of all energy requirements. "There will be no big drops in price, but no more big rises, either, in the short term at least," Sawhill said. County, 4 cities get rood money EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) Julian Hood, civil defense director for Union County, says the county and four cities will share $781,616.41 in emergency Federal Highway Administration aid to repair road damage caused by flooding in June. Hood said the county would get $504,086.98, El Dorado $262,644.83, Srnackover $8,658.30, Gallon $5,246.30, and Junction City $940. Flooding developed in the area when 13 to 18 inches of ram poured down within a 24- hour penod. One person drowned. Total damage, including damage to private property, has been estimated at about $2 million, but no exact figure on private damage has been determined. 7:45 New Zoo Revue 3 8:00 Sesame Street 2 Bozo's Cartoon Carnival 7 Captain Kangaroo 11-12 8:15 Movie 3 "Beau Brummell" 8:30 Arkansas 7 9:00 Classroom Instruction 2 Name That Tune 4-6-10 Movie 7 "Three Little Girls in Blue" Joker's Wild 11 Sesame Street 12 9:30 Electric Comoanv 2 Winning Streak 4-&10 Gambit 11 10:00 Classroom Instruction 2 Split Second 3 High Rollers 4-6-10 Now You See It 11-12 10:30 Exploring The Crafts 2 Brady Bunch 3-v-iu Hollywood Squares 4-6 Love of Life 11-12 10:55 CBS News 11-12 11:00 Classroom Instruction 2 Password 3-7-10 Jackpot! 4-6 Young and the Restless 11-12 11:30 News 3 Celebrity Sweepstakes4-6 Split Second 7-10 Search for Tomorrow 1112 11:55 NBC News 4-6 Afternoon 12:00 Masterpiece Theatre 2 All My Children 3-7-10 Little Rock Today 4 News 6-12 Eye On Arkansas 11 12:30 Let's Make A Deal 3-7-10 jeopardy! 6 As the World Turns 1112 1:00 Classroom Instruction 2 Newlywed Game 3-7 Days of Our Lives 4-6-10 Guiding Light 11-12 1:30 Girl in My Life 3-7 Doctors 4-6-10 Edge of Night 11-12 2:00 Classroom Instruction 3 General Hospital 3-7-10 Another World 4-6 Price is Right 11-12 2:30 One Life to Live 3-7-10 How to Survive a Marriage 4-6 Match Game 11-12 3:00 Sesame Street 2 10,000 Pyramid 3-10 Merv Griffin 4 6 ? 10 I Dream of jeattnie Bozo's Big Top I Love Lucy Big Valley H Gambit W 4:00 Mister Rogers 2 Bonanza ^ 4:00 Star Trek 10 It Takes A Thief 12 4:30 Electric Company 2 Gilligan's Island 7 5:00 Sesame Street 2 ABC News 3-7 Truth or Consequences 410 Gilligan's Island 6 Hogan's Heroes 11 Lucy Show 12 5:30 News 3 NBC News 4-6 Petticoat Junction 7 CBS News 11-12 ABC News 10 Night 6:00 6:30 7:00 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30 11:30 12:00 Travel Film 2 Truth Or Consequences 3 News 4-6-7-10-11-12 Know Your Antiques 2 To Tell The Truth 3 I Love Lucy 4 Movie 6 "The Treasure of Pancho Villa" Felony Squad 7 American Angler 10 To Tell The Truth 11 Maude 12 Arkansas: Continuum 2 Movie 3-7-10 "Wonder Wogian" Chase 4 Hudson Brothers 11-12 Century Theatre 2 Movie 4 "Incident in San Francisco" Movie 6 "Some Kind of a Nut" Cannon 11-12 Movie 3-7-10 "Men of the Dragon" Festival Films 2 Kojak 11-12 Video Visionaries 2 ABC Captioned News 2 News 3-4-6-7 News 10-11-12 Wide World Special 3-10 Johnny Carson 4-6 Perry Mason 7 Movie 11-12 "Hammerhead" Wide World Special 7 Here Come The Brides 4 Tomorrow " The fairytale beauty of Persia.
