DALLAS (AP) — The world's greatest rodeo announcer sports a new Cadillac every year, wears a horseshoe-shaped diamond ring, dines with millionaries 'and says, "The good limes.' don't ever involve mondey." Tom Hadley, 47, the premier rodeo announcer whose voice of the west dominated the first run of the -State Fair of Texas Rodeo here looks back on the "good times" like 1949 when he was flat-broke. Without any money, Hadley launched what was to become the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association.» "My team of ropers, butchered a goat, and stole 100 pounds of potatoes," he says. "We ate on it three weeks. Six of us. "Then we drove over to Tempe, Ariz., in one car. Slept in bed rolls on the ground. Four of won money in the first go- round of. that,Eodeo,, _,^ 4 ,v, ^U "We went out and bought some ready-roll cigarettes. Then we bought the biggest steak we could find in the best hotel in Phoenix. We washed it down with beer and felt good. Those were the good times." Hadley has won and lost fortunes. Back in the '50s, he and his wife, Virginia Regner, one of the country's best trick riders scraped up $13,000 after one year of grueling saving. They invested the money in cattle and it blew away in an Oklahoma dust cloud that left only a pile of debts. "I'd told her then, 'We're gonna live it up'." The next day he went down to the Woodward, Okla. Cadillac dealer and arranged to buy a new Cadillac in six months with nothing down. In three months, he paid it off. Last year, Hadley traveled some 80,000 miles in 300 days away from home to reap a five- figure salary that would make an investment broker blush with envy. "Why go through life and save and save and hat^ your job," he says. He keeps up a running commentary on the action in the rodeo arena. Before each rodeo he looks up the names of the contestants, talks with them and makes ample notes. "I always say something good about the one who's not well-known. The champs have already won their title. They .^fl^eej^any, h.elp wUhahe „ audience." / Hadley says he learned how to relax watching Jack Paar back in the golden age of early television. "I could speak perfect English (he's a graduate of New Mexico State University and a former college teacher.) But you need a good vocabulary to be a rodeo announcer. The words of common people. "Ninety per cent of the ticket buyers here are just people. Forget that and you're dead." ,'"wvvv>*-TV"« > \^^l | '''itSSSS^V' / / / 'wJC^''///?f«« BOOK REVIEWS AND I REMEMBER SPAIN. Edited by Murray A. Sperber. Macmillan. 337 Pages. In 1936 a bloody civil war erupted in Spain and more than a million Spaniards were to die before the violence finally came to an end in 1939. From the beginning the long struggle between the Loyalists and the Falangists attracted the attention, and in some cases actual participation in the war, of writers around the world. In an effort to preserve some of the best of the reams of writing produced about the war, editor Murray A. Sperber combed the files and the result is this anthology. In it are pieces by such major writers as Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos as well as items by now obscure journalists. They all blend to reach the editor's aim of reoroducinfi for the reader "the milieu of the late 1930s, and the Spanish Civil War, and the special feelings that war provoked in both international participants and spectators." Most of the major battles are recalled in these pages, but it is primarily the little things of the war as they are recalled by many of the writers here that are most fascinating. Things such as Theodore Dreiser noting of his hotel that "there are no sheets on the beds. All the available linen or fine cloth has been taken for bandages for the wounded." Or Hemingway's: "You stand in line all day to buy food for supper. Sometimes the foods run out before you reach the door. Sometimes a shell falls near the line and at home they wait and wait and nobody brings back anything for supper." It is this wealth of details, this noting of toe little things of the war, Chat make this volume a memorable reading ex- perience. Phil Thomas AP Books Editor 99 EAST, YOUNG MAN. By William 0. Douglas. Random House. 493 Pages. This book is as much a Supreme Court justice's personal appeal for wildlife and wilderness preservation as it is an autobiography. His experiences enhance his appeal, but the thousands of words Justice William 0. Douglas devotes to his passion for the outdoors create a barrier for a reader seeking information about events and people that shaped the author into manhood. This is information almost anyone wants in a work labeled an autobiography and such a desire is justified when it involves a man such as Douglas. Any reader interested in detailed information about his marriages and children is disappointed. There is only the briefest reference .to them, so brief that it is difficult to put a time frame on their place in his life. In contrast, the major influences on his intellectual and political development are clearly noted by Douglas. The few episodes concerning his relations with his children which he chooses to write about are interesting. But they generate a curiosity about details of the events that shaped their lives and there is almost no satisfaction for the curious. It is hoped that the second volume of his two-part work, which is supposed to emphasize his life on the Supreme Court, will comply with its promise, and answer some of the personal questions raised by Volume 1. How he got to the court is covered in this book. Dudley Lehew The Associated Press Dr. Lamb NORTH 4 83 f 752 4 AQ10962 452 WEST EAST 4J1097 4Q542 ?Q964 ?J103 + J53 +K4 *Q6 *KJ84 SOUTH (D) * AK6 ?

LAMB - I would like to have more information on safely losing weight as I am diabetic and on a 1000 calorie diet. At first I lost real fast and these past two months I've only lost six pounds. My doctor was quite perturbed with me and said, "You are not staying on your diet." I really am, Dr. Lamb, and I know my doctor thinks I'm not telling him the truth. I take thyroid pills, water pills, high blood pressure medicine and oral medicine for my diabetes. My blood pressure is over 200, and I'm terribly nervous. My weight was 310 and now it is 270. I am 60 years old. I wanted the doctor to give me hormone shots, but he said no. The doctor I used to go to before he died gave me estrogen once a month, and I distance of about three miles, you will increase your weight loss over a half a pound more each week, or about 30 more pounds a year. Of course, that assumes you don't increase your food intake. With your present diet and the exercise combined, you should lose about 70 pounds of fat in a year. That is fast enough. You have a long way to go, and it will just take time. Hormones are another matter. If you are getting a tablet medicine for this - it should work just as well. In general, if a woman is deficient in female hormone to a significant degree then it is probably best to provide some hormone replacement. DEAR DR. LAMB - What is your opinion of taking oral vitamin B-12 for pernicious anemia? I was getting only temporary benefit from irqni o _ lost much faster and felt so injections plus,B-12. Myid,ofei, A the jack°pf diamonds. If you cannA *««-< ..*•*.;*>. .--i - tor? "sWifed^'gwh^ iron which seems to raise am" DEAR READER - You are doing fine. As long as you' average a loss of a half pound a week and keep at it you will eventually get rid of your excess fat. If you try to lose too fast you will feel tired and have other problems. It is common to lose weight fast at the beginning and then settle down to a slow, steady loss thereafter. It works out that you are losing three-quarters of a pound a week. That means your body is using a total of 1350 calories a day, counting the calories in the fat and the calories in your food. Unless you are reasonably active that may be all you can use. My suggestion would be for you to increase your physical activity. You can do this without raising your blood pressure. Just start taking regular walks at a comfortable speed for you. It isn't necessary to do it all at once. Break it up into two, three, or more short walks if it tires you, but do it every day, rain or shine. If you can build up to walking an hour a day, a By Oswald & James Jacoby There are two good reasons for opening the South hand one club rather than one notrump. One is that with 18 high-card points and a five- card suit headed by A-10-9 and five quick tricks, this 18 point hand is too strong. The other is that you should try to avoid notrump openings with a worthless doubleton. The reason to open it one notrump is that if you do open one club and partner responds one heart or one spade you won't know what to rebid. In any event it doesn't matter this time what you open. You should wind up playing three notrump and get a jack of spades lead. It doesn't make much difference whether you grab the first spade or duck it. You are going to win a spade, lead the eight of diamonds and let it ride. If East wins with his king you will wind up making at least 10 tricks. If East ducks as he should, you will lead your last diamond. At this point it is up to West to make the obligatory falsecard of stabilize my blood count. If I can absorb liquid iron why not oral B-12? DEAR READER - You have to have a substance formed in the stomach called intrinsic factor to enable you to absorb B-12. Iron is important in the process, too. If you are deficient in the intrinsic factor you can't get B-12 into the bloodstream except by injection. So, you can absorb iron from the digestive tract but if you have pernicious anemia, you cannot absorb B-12. I'd like to add that normal people can swallow B-12 and use it because they have a normal amount of intrinsic factor, while patients with pernicious anemia do not. f Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O.

A surgical staple is clipped to the ear and, when necessary, the patient wiggles it himself. Medical research isn't sure WHY, but Parkinson's disease is fading from view. Number of cases had soared from 1920 to 1960, are way down now. Virus epidemic early in the century may be a clue. Doctors in New Orleans implanted a pacemaker to increase the heartbeat of an infant — just 18 hours old! Shades of sonar! Doctors are using diagnostic ultrasound systems to. determine the size, position and number of fetuses. Instruments send "beeps" into the body and listen for echoes. Patient is not subjected to drugs or x-rays. .Comparing the use of old fashioned aspirin and the narcotic codeine for the pain of wisdom-tooth extractions, dental surgeons have found that aspirins were extremely effective, while codeine was no better than placebo sugar pills. Old-fashioned aspirin? You bet! Just one of the nonprescription analgesics you'll find at low prices, at Deanna Drug. If your doctor wants you to have something stronger, bring in your prescription.
