THURSDAY,'JUNE 30, 1949 ' BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Press in Britain Faces Criticism Royal Commission Soys Newspapers Could Do Better Job LONDON, June 30. flPi—A royal commission criticised the British press today for partisanship, dia- iortion of news and failure to give R^lear picture of world affairs. ", recommended setting up a gen- coutK'il of the press to farter— but not force—Integrity and responsibility to the public. At the same time, the report— Issued after two years' study—declared "it Is generally agreed that the Br'iLsh press is inferior to none in the world. It is free from corruption." The 14 men and three women of the Royal Commission on the press examined newsmen and publishers as exiwrt witnesses during its investigation and found: ''There Ls nothing approaching monopoly in the press as a whole "Neither in the local weekly, nor in the periodical press, nor in the news agencies do we expect a significant trend towards further concentration of ownership." "The gap between the best uf' the quality papers and the general run of the popular press it too wide, and the number of papers of an intermediate type is too small, . . . "The press does not do all it might to encourage its public to accept or demand material of higher quality. . . . "Free enterprise is a prerequisite of a free press. . . ." •Jiie commission rejected proposals for: State control or subsidies tor newly established papers.

That's the multl-mllllon-dollar question which faces the American Foundation for High Blood Pressure. At a recent conference of the Foundation's medical advisory board, 29 specialists in hypertension (high bloocJ pressure) and cardio-vascular diseases met, swapped iiotcs, shook their heads and departed. They were generally agreed that tlle problem would require another million dollars this year, with still no promise of any cures. But the medical brain-trust did furnish a few leads into the rtjs- eases which kill more than 600.000 Americans each year. Mast striking of the new developments was a new technique ot photographing the living heart, and its surrounding ' arteries, without disturbing its normal function. This had never been done before. The process, described by Dr. Meyer Friedman of San Francisco. Unwilling Nudist Bares Robbery and Abduction POPLAR BLUFF, Mo.. June 30.

He finally stopped about four miles west of Corning, Ark,, took Jones' purse, forced him to remove all his clothing, then I drove away In the farmer's truck leaving Jones standing absolutely nude on the country road. FIRST X-RAY photo publish i ed of coronary arteries in the heart of a living animal, this picture 1& (he result ol a new technique In the battle agahibl coronary diseases. Catheter lube carries X-rayopaque substance. has been used successfully on animals in the past year. Through the use of convict volunteers, Dr. Friedman, Dr. Felix Perle and their associates hope to perfect the technique in another year for use on humans as a conclusive test for coronary disease. "Its vaiue lies chieEly in diagnosis," said Dr. Friedman. "Today, 50 per cent of coronary disease can be diagnosed only by tlle case history of the patient." Par from announcing a cure for hypertension, several of the doctors tended to minimize tire advantages of one highly-publicized treatment —the low-salt and rice diet. Dr. William Goldrlng of New York and his associates reported that patients on this diet for as long as 90 days showed no significant change in blood pressure level, and some suffered adverse effects on the function of the kidneys. Dr. Henry A. Schroeder of the Washington University School of Medicine concentrated on the "psychosomatic" factor In hypertension —the relation of mental stress to nigh blood pressure. He said that :wo types of personalities are particularly prone to hypertension: Ihe subnormal-assertive personality, of which'the "timid soul" might be termed representative, and the obsessive-compulsive type—the man with an "inner drive." He outlined a theory in which mental disturbance is a key to hypertension. Briefly .mental or emotional stresses result In bodily tensions, which in turn produce a reduced blood flow through the kid- nevs—a condition known as "Lsche- mlu." The kidneys then develop a chemical substance which Increases tile blood pressure, strains the heart, speeds up hardening of the arteries, and contributes to kidney disease. Although the presence of this substance has been recognized, it :s in such minute quantities that efforts to isolate and study it have failed. Dr Schroeder pointed out in defense of the psychosomatic theory that hypertension is a "civilized" ailment—African Zulus and Australian Bushmen don't get it. Vet among American businessmen and executives ,it ts almost an occupational disease. Despite the obvious psychological implication , Dr. Schroeder doesn't think that any widespread use of psychotherapy in the treatment of hypertension is in the off- inp, at least in advanced cases. He believes the defects in personality are too fundamental to be remedied on the psychoanalyst's couch. The doctors have returned to their laboratories for more testing, probing and compiling. But hieh blood pressure and accompanying diseases continue to take their toll, which predictions say will reacli a million a year in the US. by 1960.
