Monday. September 10, 1JJ74 HOPE .(ARK.) StAK WIN AT BRIDGE DrLamb Heart rates often vary By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB - Your column about coffee and your heart was rather disturbing to me. You said that people with resting heart rates over 80 beats per minute were more likely to have a heart attack or drop dead than people with resting heart rates below 70, My doctor, who is quite renowned, told me that a normal heart rate for women was between 78 and 84 — somewhat higher than for men. 1 had always thought that around 80 was normal. I have had a faster heart rate than usual these past few years. A number of years ago I had attacks of rapid heart beats and took quintdine, but I'm not troubled with that any more. I have given up coffee and only have a half cup of Sanka in the mornings and rarely drink tea. Alcohol seems to speed up my heart at times, and I thought it was a depressant. I drink very little, however. I'm 63 and female and have been very active. I would appreciate further information about the heart rates. DEAR READER - Yes, I did say that. It is the result of a study of personnel from the People's Gas Company. When doctors talk about likelihood in groups, you cannot then say it will happen to one particular person. It is just a statement of risk factor. Normal heart -rates are said to be between 60 and 100 beats per minute. The problem is the definition of normal. It is used to define the common finding. If you measured the resting heart rate you would find it between 60 and 100 in most people. Normal, meaning "com- [tnon," isn't too helpful in Devaluating health. In a population where over half of the people die from heart and vascular disease, being nor- mal can be downright dangerous. What you want are optimal findings — meaning the kind of measurements you see in the people with the least amount of illness or the lowest death rate. Thus, it is proper to say a resting heart rate below 70 is more of an optimal value than a rate above 80. However, both values are normal. When a person has a higher heart rate it really serves as a warning to the doctor to look for the cause. If it is cigarettes the patient should quit. He should! quit anyway. If it is because he is out of shape and overweight, he needs a fitness program. If it is from living with a cup of coffee always in his hand, he should stop that. In some cases it is simple anxiety, and the doctor may want to reassure him or find out what is causing the anxiety. A "resting" heart rate should be one taken early in the morning before the person starts doing a lot of physical activity or gets involved in life's situations. Or, it can be later in the day, but then it will be influenced by what has been going on. Many men sitting at their desk in the afternoon will have a heart rate over 100. The office coffee, cigarettes, lack of physical fitness and stress all contribute to the finding. It is probably this individual with these unhealthy habits who is most likely to drop'dead or have a heart attack. So, a "high normal" heart rate is a symptom. If it is caused by unhealthy habits the thing to do is correct the habits. 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 cholesterol, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Cholesterol" booklet. REMOVED FROM 'OFFICE', the headless wax figure of ex-President Richard Nixon is stored away at Madam Tussaud's famed waxed museum in London where it was on display until the former chief executive's resignation. Mike Frankovich polices cop tale By Dick Kleiner HOLLYWOOD - (NEA) I learned what a producer does by sitting on the set of "Report to the Commissioner" and watching Mike Frankovich in action. "I'm here every day, all day," Mike said. If I wasn't they'd get away with something." Mike says sometimes the cast, crew, director "forget the fundamentals." And, presto, somebody forgot a fundamental but Mike was there to remind them. It happened on the fantastic set, where they had recreated, inch by inch, the fifth floor of Saks Fifth Avenue, the New York City department store. A big chase scene was taking place in and among the displays ot dresses and lingerie. They were setting up a scene, director Milton Katselas, cineinatographer Mario Tosi and the rest oHhe crew, using standms Tosi squinted through the camera and said that they'd have to put a ceiling on the set, because he could »ee the top ot the set and there was no ceiling and, naturally. U looked phony. Frankovich leaped down from his chair "Put the real actor in and let's see. first." he said the ceiling on would To put take a Lll«- ,-^niiit-, "•• - . , hour at least and thai would be a costly dela\ They put the real actor Michael McGuire - in and he was three inches shorter than the standin and the ceiling wasn't needed. Frankovich's remembering of the fundamentals saved a few thousand dollars right then. ... , , The picture stars Michael Moriarty, Yaphet Kotto and young Susan Blakely. But the real star is the story, another of those fast-paced New York cop tales. And they have Sonny Grosso, the New York cop who was in on the actual "French Connection" case, as technical advisor. I talked to Grosso about ••Serpico," the book/movie about a New York cop who made a fetish out of honesty. Grosso says he thinks Serpico, the man and the film, lias done the police a disservice. "The implication," he says, "is that all cops in New York except Serpico were dishonest. 1 knew Serpico well. He used to look up to Eddie iGrosso's long-time partner, Eddie Egani and me as almost Gods. But he wasn't the only honest cop. In fact, only a very small percentage of New York cops were dishonest The picture painted a misleading picture.' Grosso has an interesting theory, that TV shows about cops are doing a good deed He says in the old days, the public knew the police intimately because the neigh- Little Old Lady trounces Ozzie NORTH 16 * 1096 VQJ3 * AQJ8 + KQJ WEST EAST 474 4K853 ¥lO 85 T9762 + K72 4654 4*98754 +A3 SOUTH (D) 4 AQJ2 f AK4 4 1093 + 1062 North-South vulnerable West North East South 1 N.T.

Cher's tattoo true By DICK KLEINER DEAR DICK: I am a great fan of Cher Bono. I have heard rumors that she is the proud possessor of a tattoo. Can you verify this and, if so, where does she have it? — M. WILLIAMS, Indiana, Pa. For once, a rumor is true. Cher has a tattoo — on her posterior. It's a beautiful butterfly. Why? Well, once she went to Hawaii and contracted a water fungus which bleached some white spots on her skin. She decided she'd rather have a pretty butterfly than some white spots DEAR DICK: Is it true they are going to make another movie from "The Exorcist?" - TINA HOLDER, Mobile, Ala. Warner Brothers, who owns the property, says, flatly, no way. r •. DEAR DICK: Is Shelly Novack, now appearing on The F.B.I., the same person who attended California State University at Long Beach in the late 1960s? — J. J. JOHNSON, Anaheim, Calif. Novack did attend Cal. State-Long beach, where he was a football star. Later, before he turned to acting, he played with the San Diego Chargers in the N.F.L. DEAR DICK: Can you tell me about Richard Dreyfuss, the star of "American Graffiti," such as age, place of birth, etc.? — RAE REDFORD, New Orleans, La. Dreyfuss is one of our brightest young actors. If you liked him in "American Graffiti," wait until you see his superb job in "The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz." He's 25, born in Brooklyn, N.Y., but raised in Los Angeles. He has wanted to act since he was a boy and began working in small L.A. theaters when he got out of college. DEAR DICK: I would like to know if Tony Orlando and Dawn are being considered for a variety series this fall, and also The Mac Davis Show? - MRS. H., Zephyrhills, Fla, Yes, they're both being "considered," but not too seriously. Variety shows haven't done too well lately during the prime time TV season. And there is the economics of TV to be considered. Variety shows don't lend themselves to reruns or syndication as well as dramatic and comedy shows. So don't hold your breath waiting for them to become regular series. DEAR DICK: Why doesn't James Drury of The Virginian act in other movies like the other actors? I know he is now in Firehouse, but that's all. Is he dead or is it that he just dislikes acting? - ELIZABETH ABRAM. Sumter, S,C. Drury, still decidedly alive, likes acting and making money as well as the next guy. Competition for acting parts is very tough in Hollywood, that's all. DEAR DICK: Is it true that Mary Tyler Moore is dead? I heard she was, by suicide. What happened? — BETH YORK, Robertsdale, Ala. Nothing happened. Mary is still with us, happily, and busily making another season's worth of her CBS show. INKWSI'AI'KK KNTKIU'KISE ASSN I borhood cop on the beat was a familiar and friendly figure. When they took to patrol cars that intimacy vanished. Grosso thinks the TV shows are bringing back some of that closeness. The public gets to know their cops through the TV screens. "They are learning," he says, "that cops are human beings, too." NO SEX ON LICENSE PLATES ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - You won't find "SEX" on a New York State license plate. It's among 245 three-letter combinations listed as taboo by the state Motor Vehicles Department since January 1973 when three-letter, three- number plates became standard issue. "it is based loosely on a list provided by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators," a department spokesman said. "Theirs is a long list — I mean it's bigger than this. They see a lot of weird things. Then we say, 'That's not weird,' and we take it off," the spokesman said NO further action is planned against former President Richard Nixon o> the House Judiciary ( ommittee according to chief counsel John M.

It's best not to rely on them too heavily. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) If any work you have to do today is too heavy or strenuous to do alone, better wait until you can get help. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You're apt to be spending on nonessentials with too free a hand. Remember: If you're on a budget, it will only stretch so far before it snaps. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Even though you may not feel as sure of yourself as you should, put up a bold front. Bluff your way through. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You're not thinking as clearly as you should about something you're involved in. Double- check everything. Otherwise a large error could slip through. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Try not to get your friends mixed up in any financial problems you may be facing. It is best for you to resolve things through other channels. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you're going to pattern your actions after anyone at this time, be sure you pick someone whose methods aren't too harsh or severe. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Don't let another's comments give you a bad opinion of yourself. You know what you really are. This person just thinks she does. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23- Dec. 21) Plans that you make for yourself today won't be ' realized in the manner you envision if you select the wrong teammates. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You'll be able to get a few jumps on your competition if you don't spend too much time on minor obstacles. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Something you've neglected to do is about to catch up with you. Don't make excuses as to why it isn't done. Jump in and do it now. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) This COULD be a productive day for you. Chances are it won't be because you'll divert your energies and attention to something frivolous.
