Working With the Elderly Rewarding ByMaryLeeHagert ARCADIA — Working with senior citizens provides an interesting challenge for Connie Ewing, Arcadia, Since February she has been working as the assistant recreation director of Carroll. Her main job is to start recreation programs for the Carroll elderly. She has been organizing crafts, films, sing-a-longs, games and speakers for the older persons of Carroll. The activities are held in the Courtview Apartments, 514 N. Court St. Connie draws upon a wide variety of experiences when carrying out her work. She graduated from Midwestern College, Denison, with a bachelor's degree in physical education. After graduation, she enrolled in the national VISTA Volunteer program. She worked for 10 months in a rural, racially mixed Ohio community. "Our main job ' was to get communication. going between the black and white races," she said. Another 10 months were spent in Superior, Wis. "There I worked with older persons, starting a senior citizen center and a meals-on-wheels program,"she said. "I liked working with the elderly in Superior,'" the chic 28-year-old said. "It helped me get ready for my present job." After her term with VISTA, she enrolled in the Peace Corps for two years. While in the corps she was stationed in Venezuela. Her job was 'to train elementary education teachers the skill of teaching physical education in the grade schools. i "It sounds like a funny assignment," she smiled, "but they really didn't know how to teach P.E. I don't think I ever saw the children play." For physical education the teachers would have the children walk around the edge of a large courtyard.-Then they would have the students skip or run around the yard, she explained. In Venezuela most of the newspapers were biased, she felt. "They played up the energy crisis so much, we thought they didn't have any lights or heat in the states." "This may sound funny, but the first thing I wanted to do when I returned home was to watch a newscast!" she exclaimed. After the Peace Corps tour, she enrolled at Iowa State University, Ames, fora year. She received a bachelor's degree in sociology from ISU in the spring. Connie said her present job working with the senior citizens is personally rewarding. "I think the most important part is that the people are getting out and meeting other people." ''It is a form of companionship for them, I always like to see them get involved," she said. "I really get a kick out of these people. Some of them have the best sense of humor." The senior citizens seem to reciprocate the fondness. Some are usually waiting in the lobby'every day to greet her before the activities begin. The people participating in the activities do not have to live in Courtview, she emphasized. "We have people coming from the nursing homes and private residents." During her leisure time Connie likes to read and sew. She also grows houseplants and in the summer helps with a large family garden. • Connie lives with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Donald (Skip) Ewing, rural Arcadia. "We usually plant a big enough garden to supply ourselves and my sisters who live away from home with enough canned goods to last through the winter, she said. "I like anything that will keep me outside," she said. "I would rather walk than drive." Although cooking is not on the top of her list of "favorites," here are two recipes she especially likes to make.

DESMOINES.Iowa(AP)- Secretary of State Melvin Synhorst says his office is off to a good start in collecting thousands of reports from corporations and others on their holdings of Iowa farm land. But he says he doesn't know what he's going to use for money next year to compile the information from the reports that the legislature wants. "They didn't give us any money this year and they are planning an appropriation of only $20,000 for the corporate farm division for next year," Synhorst said. "That will only take care of part of our expenses. It won't pay the salary of more than one extra person to do the job.

By Dave Schroeder Is pure water good to drink? No. Absolutely pure water would be injurious to the human body and all other delicate living things. This is due to the fact that water contains mineral elements which are essential to life. Whether water is injurious or conducive to health depends on the presence or absence of disease-producing foreign matter or the proportion of minerals in the water. There is no such thing as "absolutely" pure water. Pure water would have neither taste nor odor. The "taste" of drinking water as we know it is due to mineral elements and other substances contained in it. SCHROEDER'S Carpet & Decorating Across the Street from Safeway Parking Lot Downtown Carroll aliens. The law requiring business entities to report their agricultural land holdings annually is known as the Family Farm Act because its goal is to protect family farms. When the act was passed last year, the legislature gave Synhorst's office no additional money to implement it. He found the funds somehow, with help from Gov. Robert Ray and State Comptroller Marvin Selden, to hire Alice Fisher to head the corporate farm division, develop reporting forms and mail them to all the business corporations from which reports are required. But the next phase of the op- "If we get limited funds, they'll get limited information," he said. "It seems very odd to me that they won't give us a real chance to do what they wanted to do. "There are 35 questions on the reporting form and about 22 points from each report go into the data bank. , "Then we'll take that data and make our report to the legislature. I think we also should print at least a few copies of the report for dissemination to people who want it. "But without adequate funds, our report will not be as complete as we would like and I don't see how we can print it' for others who want it." projects needing your personal touch.

YOUR BIRTHDAY March 9,1976 The yield you've been hoping for could be coming this year from seeds you've sown in the past. What you should receive will be proportionate to your efforts. Join the Payroll Savings Plar University of Utah Confirms Effectiveness of Chiropractic for Back Trouble When you have an aching back, a wry neck, a whiplash, or any injury to your back or neck, do you get more satisfaction from the medications of an M.D. or from the care of a chiropractor (D.C.) ? Many of us when doubled over with pain and hardly able to make a rational decision, would dearly love to know in which direction to take our aching torso. It is very helpful, therefore, to consider the results of a survey conducted by Dr. Robert L. Kane and his associates at the Department of Family and Community Medicine of the University of Utah College of Medicine, who compared the effectiveness of physician and chiropractor care in 232 patients. What they discovered is going to make some doctors fall of their high horse, suffer a pain in the neck and in the ego, and perhaps go to a chiropractor for relief. According to this survey, those patients who use chiropractors are slightly more satisfied with the care they receive, more pleased with their improvement, more quickly returned to their former status and are more satisfied with the chiropractors' ability and willingness to explain the problem and the treatment (Lancet, June 29, 1974). The differences show chiropractors ahead by a slim margin. They found, too, that in spite of the medical profession's disdain for chiropractic, more and more people are turning to chiropractors for assistance. Scanning Workmen's Compensation records, the Utah researchers contacted and interviewed 232 persons who had been treated for back or spinal problems. Of these, 122 had sought the services of chiropractors, while 110 went to physicians. (Workmen's Compensation in Utah permits the injured worker to select his therapist from among physicians, osteopaths' and chiropractors. This ruling differs from state to state.) Treatment More Intensive While those patients who were treated by a chiropractor required almost twice as many visits as the M.D.-treated patients, the average duration of their treatment was significantly shorter — 6.5 weeks as opposed to 9.3 weeks for the latter group. (Physician-treated patients average one to two visits a week, compared to two to five visits weekly for those seeing chiropractors.) Evaluating each patient's disability and improvement with therapy, Dr. Kane and his associates concluded that "the intervention of a chiropractor in problems around neck and spine injuries was at least as effective as that of a physician, in terms of restoring the patient's function and satisfying the patient." Chiropractic patients scored an average of 0.92 on the Utah researchers' ratio of improvement scale, slightly ahead of the M.D.-treated patients' average score of 0.86. , Those who went to physicians w.ere more apt to get medication without' manipulation. Quite the contrary for those who went to a chiropractor. Physicians used medication, heat, braces or casts, physical therapy and exercises, in that order. They also tended to use surgery. Chiropractors, on the other hand, used manipulation, heat, braces or casts and exercises. There was a tendency for M.D.'s to get the more serious cases, so the better record of the chiropractors must be seen in this light. Perhaps it would be fair to call it a tie — but a "moral victory" for the much maligned chiropractors. In the area of personal relations, the chiropractors rated higher scores than the M.D.'s. As many as 6.5 pe.r cent of the patients were dissatisfied with the M.D.'s ability to make them feel welcome. On the other hand, no patient found any fault at all with the chiropractors in this area. Chiropractors also rated higher scores than the M.D.'s in ability to explain the problem and the treatment in terms which the patient could easily understand. Federal Recognition for Chiropractic Though spinal manipulation, the basis of the chiropractic science, is as old as Hippocrates, there is ironically a scarcity of scientific data on the validity of chiropractic theory or the effectiveness of chiropractic therapy. This situation will no doubt change now that Congress finally voted in 1973 to afford Medicare coverage for chiropractic treatments. As pointed out in Science (September 13, 1974) the Medicare coverage marks the first recognition by the U.S. Dept. of Health, Education and Welfare that chiropractic exists. Other moves followed quickly on the heels of this one. In 1974 the Federal Employees Compensation Act ~~was amended to include limited coverage for chriopractic. This year, Louisiana, the last holdout, started licensing chiropractors, which means that there are now licensing boards in all 50 states. Things are getting better and better for the chiropractic profession. For the first time in years, colleges of chiropractic report more applications than they can handle. Three new schools have recently been opened bring the total to 13. Research Planned Into Chiropractic Now that the federal government is expanding its role in the nation's health affairs, the time seems ripe for the government to find out at least what chiropractic is all about. Last year, the National Institute for Neurological Diseases and Stroke (NINDS) allocated up to two million dollars for research directly related to chiropractic.. According to Murray Goldstein, NINDS director of extramural research, money is now available for research in neurological, neuromuscular, and communicative (hearing and speech) disorders. This includes spinal biomechanics, the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of subluxations (an incomplete or partial dislocation) as well as clinical trials of therapy and diagnosis. The chiropractors believe that they will finally have the opportunity to prove their worth. The millions of people who have found satisfaction and relief of pain at the hands of the chiropractor can only say, "It's about time!''
