Tuesday, August 27, 1974 HOPE (ARK.) STAR Page Five president continues to meet with advisers By FRANCES LEWiNE Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford is continuing meetings with advisers to plan next month's summit conference on the inflation problem. Ford also planned to join a morning prayer gathering today in the Executive Mass the White House. Thirty-four White House and administration officials signed up for the session to hear Sen. Howard E. Hughes, D-Iowa, the guest speaker. Hughes is retiring from his Senate post to devote his time to religious work. Those attending today include cabinet members, two White House physicians and the President's press secretary, Jerald F. terHorst. After early morning staff meetings and a visit from a diplomat delivering a message from Romanian Communist leader Nicolae Ceausescu, Ford turns his attention again to advance planning for the economic summit meeting now set for Sept. 27-28 in Washington. Ford said on Monday he wants the conference of the best brains in the country from all segments of the economy to consider "new and realistic" anti-inflation measures. The President wants to find "the best way to go," said the executive director of the conference, William L. Seidman, a Grand Rapids, Mich., accountant and friend of the President. Some 600 to 700 delegates are expected to be invited to participate. Ford will be chairman of the two-day summit meeting and will devote as much time to the sessions as he can, terHorst said. In advance of the main conference, the White House also announced a series of nine mini-summits to be held Sept. 5-20 with experts from a varie* ty of fields, ranging from agrid culture to health and banking. Some of the sessions will be held outside of Washington. Aides said the idea is to give the President new ideas on what should be done to improve the economy. They warned that it is "unrealistic to think the President is going to achieve miracles." But Seidman said the President "will move with all due speed" to implement worthwhile ideas stemming from the think-tank sessions. "Believe me the last thing he wants is cosmetic treatment of this matter," Seidman said. Ford also is moving quickly to get under way a new Wage and Price Stabilization Council that will monitor labor and management to focus attention on excessive wage and price increases. TerHorst said Ford will name a director and members of the council in a day or two. It could come in Ford's news conference, a full-scale televised session scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. Ford also conferred with Defense Secretary James R. Schlesinger about reports that a close watch was kept during the last days of Richard M. Nixon's presidency to make sure that no orders were given to military units outside the normal chain of command. "I have been assured that no measures of this nature were actually undertaken," Ford said in a statement. © 1974 by NEA. Inc "Young man, you are not allowed to tump across the Grand Canyon!" Egyptian army builds extensive fortification By FRED S. HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Egyptian army has built an extensive system of fortifications to shield its strip of Sinai desert from possible Israeli attack, U.S. intelligence sources report. The Israelis also have put in various barriers, but they appear less elaborate than the Egyptian works, the sources said. Reports discussing defensive works on both sides in the disputed Sinai came inrough U.S. intelligence as tensions rose in the Middle East, sparked in part by an Israeli mobilization drill. Also contributing to the tension was an incident last week in which an Egyptian SA7 antiaircraft missile was fired at an Israeli Fr phantom jet, U.S. sources said. The Israeli plane evidently was checking on Egyptian army maneuvers. It was not hit, according to reports reaching here. The Egyptian army was said to have constructed more than 90 fortified strong points along two north-south lines. Intelligence sources said each is made up of a bunker and supporting '.renches and is big enough to hold a company of infantry. There was no indication how many of the positions are occupied by troops. So far, U.S. sources said, the Egyptians have not linked the strong points, which are positioned to cover most likely lanes of attack. Some sit on low hills, giving them wide observation and fields of fire across the desert. Before the surprise Arab attack last October, the Israelis manned a system of entrenchments and bunkers that ran along the east bank of the Suez Canal. This system, called te Bar Lev line, was intended as a "tripwire" to alert the main Israeli forces rather than to hold out as a major defense in itself. Egyptian assault troops quickly overran it. Now, on the other side of the United Nations buffer zone from the Egyptian army, the Israelis reportedly have planted mine fields and dug a series of antitank ditches bounded with rolls of barbed wire. Rate held up LTUufc HOCK (AP) - A rate increased sought by the North Arkansas Electric Cooperative was suspended for six months Monday by the state Public Service Commission. The utility, which is based at Salem in Fuuion County, wants a 9% per cent increase in hopes of generating $348,000 in additional revenue. The PSC said more tune was needed for its staff to investigate the reasonableness of the firm's proposal. Dr. Lamb Television Logs Doctors can't ban products By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB - Something has been bothering me for some time, and I would like your answer to it. 1 am not a' medical man, but it is my understanding that suppression of a natural glandular function of the body is injurious to health. If this is correct why don't the doctors take action to get anti- pcrspirants banned from the market? DEAR READER - Banning products is not a function of the doctors. Product safety is a responsibility of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of your federal government. Some anti- pcrspirants have been banned for different reasons. Your body has a lot of redundant capacity. You have two kidneys and can get by with one good one. You can get by with one lung, and so on. The reason suppressing perspiration under the arms is not harmful is that the skin in other locations does the sweating for you. The localized suppression then is not enough lo prevent the body from benefiting from the' normal sweating mechanism that occurs all over the body for cooling and elimination of water. DEAR DR. LAMB - I read about the little girl who refused to have a bowel movement. My little grandson had the same problem. He would lie belly down on the floor with both hands pressing the groin to prevent having a bowel movement or to pass urine. We went through all the begging, teasing and coaxing routine. When he was 4-1/2 he complained of abdominal pains. Well at last the doctors found out he had a very small opening of the urinary tract. He had had it since infancy. He wasn't able to urinate properly. Instead he held it. The bladder began to expand, and it was so large it caused him trouble in moving his bowels. He also had bladder infections because of all the urine he retained. The little opening was to be solved. Whenever I see a potbellied tot now I wonder if he's having bowel or bladder trouble. Perhaps if you wrote a column on the importance of a normal opening at the tip of the penis it would help save a lot of parents from a similar problem. Incidentally my grandson is fine now and has no problem at all, thanks to a simple operation. Incidentally, could this have been caused by his circumscsion? DEAR READER - Thank you for a kind and thoughtful letter. There are many reasons for bowel problems and failure to eliminate urine. The first step in finding out the cause is a good examination. Sometimes a serious problem has a simple solution, as you have explained. It is possible to have a stricture of the outlet of the penis from a reaction to circumcision, but a very small opening can be something that a child is born with. Its only real importance is the obstruction to normal urination. Any obstruction that does this will often cause bladder distention and infections in either young or old. In many ways your little grandson had the same problem men have with obstruction from a large prostate gland. The only difference being the obstruction to outflow was at the tip of the penis and not inside at the outlet of the bladder. Fortunately the problem was more easily solved. 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 constipation, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Constipation" booklet. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

According to the independence agreement signed in Algiers Monday, the colonial administration of Portuguese Guinea will be replaced by the rebel government proclaimed last fall by the liberation movement in the West African territory, the African Party for the Independence of Guinea and the Cape Verde Islands. The rebel government is headed by Aristides Pereira, 50, who succeeded Amilcar Cabral as head of the party after Cabral was assassinated in January 1973. Cabral was founder of the liberation party. The independence agreement ending four centuries of colonial rule was worked out in negotiations held in London and Algiers since May. It was signed by Foreign Minister Mario Scares of Portugal and Maj. Pedro Pires, the deputy defense minister in the rebel government. The agreement proclaimed an immediate cease-fire in the guerrilla war that the rebel movement has been waging since 1962. It said that independent Guinea-Bissau and Portugal will maintain "a relationship of active cooperation — particularly in the economic, financial, cultural and technical fields — on a basis of independence, mutual respect, equality, reciprocity of interest and harmonious relations. ••me agreement does not provide independence for the 275,000 people of the Cape Verde islands, an archipelago in the Atlantic some 450 miles northwest of the Guinea-Bissau coast. But Portugal said it would hold a self-determination referendum on the islands at some future date "in accordance with relevant resolutions of the United Nations." Guinea-Bissau has a population of 800,000, mostly poor farmers. Once the new military regime in Portugal decided to let the African colonies go, Portuguese Guinea was the logical choice for a starter since it is of no economic importance to Portugal and has few white settlers. Portugal's military rulers have also promised independence to the other two African colonies, Angola and Mozambique. But negotiations to achieve this are certain to be much more difficult since both have sizable white populations. by Ben-nee BedeQ/d For Wednesday, Aug. 28, 1974 ARIES (March 21-April 19) Don't let your feelings of boldness lead you Into risky or rash acts.
