Wednesday, August 21, 1074 »WPK (ARK.) BOOK REVIEWS CHIEF! By Albert A. Seedman and Peter Hellman. Arthur Fields Books. 500 Pages. "In the spring of 1972, after 30 years of service, Albert Seedman retired as the 21st Chief of Detectives of the New York City Police Department. He commanded a force of 3,000 detectives. . .and was responsible for solving some of the most celebrated and dramatic crimes in recent memory." Seedman, a poor New York City kid who majored in accounting but became a cop because that was what he really wanted, was involved in thousands of cases during his long years of service as a policeman but it is about 12 of the most celebrated that he tells in this bulky book which ends all too quickly. For the book is a fascinating one. Not just for crime buffs but for the general reader interested in learning how and why a man becomes a cop, turns himself into a really first class detective and goes on to take charge of all the detectives in the nation's largest city. But, while a lot of Seedman's own life is in the book, it also is about just how a huge police department works, giving detail after fascinating detail as to how these men set about solving a crime and carrying it through. The 12 cases Seedman details all were headliners at the time they broke: the murder of Kitty Genovese, the shooting of Joe Colombo, the ambush of Joey Gallo. In each, Seedman begins at the beginning and then carefully details the many, many steps that were taken in an effort to bring each to a speedy conclusion. While all of the cases discussed in this powerful book are of great interest, the reader especially is urged to read ;;the Belt Parkway Case," The Johnson-Genovese Case." EMPEROR OF CHINA. By Jonathan D. Spence. Knopf. 227 Pages. Jonathan Spence, professor of Chinese history at Yale, can claim a remarkable achievement in putting together in good and forceful prose an informal autobiography of the greatest of Chinese emperors, K'ang-hsi, a contemporary of King Louis XW of France and Czar Peter the Great of Russia. Spence has done this by careful selection and synthesis of the emperor's reminiscences, poems, letters. K'ang-hsi lived from 1662 to 1722. He was the third of the Manchu emperors, and his reign was the last from which modern collectors would boast of owning truly fine artistic creations, particularly in porcelain. The Manchus were from Manchuria, more closely related ethnically to the Mongolians of Genghis Khan than to the Chinese proper. Nevertheless, when they took over after the collapse of the Ming Dynasty, the Manchus had the sensitivity to appreciate China's past, including Confucius, and the energy of newcomers to sustain it more effectively than the Chinese themselves were doing. After all, the Manchus lasted until 1912. We see K'ang-hsi laying down the rules, Confucian rules, for good government — force without cruelty, handling subordinates firmly but with consideration, and all that. He believed in capital punishment, particularly for treason, but not used wantonly. He revived the porcelain kilns of the Mings and had them turn out beautiful creations we still admire. And he was an excellent and honest •vriter. For Thursday, Aug. 22, 1974 ARIES (March 21-April 19) Everything should go reasonably well until this evening.

(API — Dr. George Smiley, 54, the first fulltime physician for Arkansas' prisons, has resigned effective Aug. 31, a prison official said Tuesday. Tim Baltz, Correction Department information officer, said Dr. Smiley submitted his resignation about two weeks ago to Correction Commissioner Terrell Don Hutto. However, Baltz said he didn't know why Dr. Smiley resigned. Six persons have applied for the job, he said. The physician's salary is established by the legislature. Dr. Smiley was paid $26,000 annually and furnished a car and living quarters, Baltz said. DrLamb Adsiia Davis: not recommended WIN AT BRIDGE Sherlock Holmes p/ays ft sate By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB - In Adelle Davis' book "Let's Eat Right to Keep Fit" she states that the foods doctors, tell their patients to avoid in order to lower cholesterol; i.e. eggs, liver, butter, whole milk, etc., actually supply the nutrient needed to help lower cholesterol, that nutrient being lecithin. Please give me your opinion? DEAR READER - Did you know that three of Adelle Davis' books are on the "not recommended" list of the Chicago Nutrition Assn.? The Association is composed of top-notch, well informed nutritionists. I suspect such statements that you quoted are one reason for this. Dr. Edward H. Rynearson, formerly professor of Mayo Graduate School of Medicine, is an authority on nutrition and is quoted as saying, "Any physician or dietitian will find the book larded with inaccuracies, misquotation and unsubstantiated statements." James Trager, a well- known writer about food, quotes Dr. Leo Lutwak, M.D. and Ph.D., professor of clinical nutrition at Cornell as saying she "misuses science." "Adelle Davis takes incomplete evidence and immediately extrapolates it. to what are ridiculous conclusions from a clinical point of view." On the Dinah Shore program she stated that "rice is a good source of protein" as a substitute for high priced meat. It's not. Less than ten per cent of its calories are protein according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data. And I heard her tell Dick Cavett that you had to drink whole milk rather than skim milk because you needed the fat to absorb the vitamin A. This isn't true either. In evaluating Adelle Davis' concepts about nutrition, you need to put her in to proper time perspective. She was a dedicated pioneer and ac- Windstorms buffet parts of Midwest By The Associated Press Thunderstorms and high winds hit parts of the Midwest early today but most of the nation had clear skies. Winds up to 70 miles per hour flailed Rock Rapids, in northwestern Iowa, during a storm. No injuries were reported. Thunderstorms were scattered from the upper Mississippi Valley to the southwestern Plains but brought little rain. The most was one inch in six hours at Williston, N.D. Showers also ranged along the Gulf of Mexico and the southern Atlantic Coast. Fog cut visibility to less than three miles in the Appalachian Mountains and the upper Ohio Valley. Temperatures before dawn ranged from 38 at Evanston, Wyo., to 88 at Phoenix, Ariz. The cost of products a farmer must buy to produce his crops and animals rose 67 per cent between 1950 and 1972. complished a lot of good in her time. But her time was before World War II, when undernutrition was a national problem. She was a warm grandmotherly person in her later years. Her education was limited to a bachelor's degree in 1927 and a master's degree in biochemistry in 1937. She came on the nutrition scene about the time vitamins were beginning to be isolated and understood. This may explain her overenthusiastic faith in vitamins as a cure-all. You must realize that she was an Indiana farm girl in a time when farm kids sometimes walked two miles to a rural one-room school, often after doing farm chores. There were no hot lunches. A good breakfast before going to school was more important. Her training preceded the time heart disease became an important national medical problem. Between her two degrees Dr. Paul Dudley White was reporting the first series of heart attacks in medical journals as a new problem. Adelle Davis had limited training in medical problems. After all she never went to medical school or practiced medicine. So she represented advice from another era. She had some very good points and deserves a lot of credit for encouraging interest in nutrition. Her advice was better suited, in many instances, to what we knew and were before World War II, but things have changed. We now have busing, hot lunches, and television. With it we have heart disease. It's time to "Eat Right" for 1974, which is different than down on the farm in 1937. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O.

Seven diamonds, the best final contract, makes easily while seven hearts and seven notrump would make against a 3-2 heart break. Suits break 3-2 some 68 per cent of the time at the table, although they tend to break badly in bridge books. Perhaps if Watson had rebid to four diamonds over Holmes three hearts, the great detective might have found some way to get Watson to the diamond grand slam. Or when Watson made the rather peculiar bid of five spades, Holmes could have bid six clubs, whereupon Watson could surely have gone to seven diamonds. Anyway, Holmes found himself at six hearts. He won the spade lead and studied the whole hand before playing to the next trick. There wasn't much study needed. If trumps broke 3-2 he had 14 top tricks. Suppose they broke 4-1. The contract was six hearts. It wasn't important to make an overtrick and Holmes decided to play safe. At trick two he led a low heart from his hand. East won that trick but could do nothing to keep Holmes from drawing trumps and making his slam. INEWSPAPEH ENTERPRISE ASSN I J The bidding has been: 21 West North East South 1+ Pass 2* Pass 2 N.T.

Eat less, more often. University of Utah Medical Center has developed a portable artificial kidney that can do a complete hemodialysis in three hours, and could free patients to travel. Improvements are still needed. Mouth-to-mouth resuscitation is the most effective method of restoring breathing after near-drowning, electric shock, carbon monoxide poisoning or smoke inhalation.
