Calmness Is Called Key To Long Life BY ALTON L. BTJVKESLEE AP Science Reporter Chicago, June 13 (/P>—A key for long life conies from Dr.. Morris Fi^bielh, one of the busiest men' in the nation.; Th& key is imperturbability, or calmness. Plus five things you should, keep low. Dr. Flshblen is editor, author, lecturer, traveler, advisor, with perhaps a half dozen to a dozen prbjects going at One time. Todajr at the American Medical assocla^ tion convention hp took time out- he always seems to have time—^to toll.secrets for health and long life. In London, he began, he was talking with t«rd Herder, as famous in British medicine as Flsh- beln is here. Dr, Fishbein congrrat- ulated Lord Horde on looking BO well and being so active at 82. • * * * "LORD HORDER asked me, 'how pld are you?' I'm 62, I said. Ho leaned over the table and felt my' pulse. 'You will Jive to be 100.' WPnderful, I replied, why? and Lord Horder said 'because you have imperturbability.' 'I've practiced , Imperturbability since I Svas 16', Z told him. I think a person can practice it," How do you become imperturbable? "Avoid raising your voice. Don't get tingry and shout, All you do is raise ybur own blood pressure, not the other fellow's. ••"Don't get crowded. Take things one at a. time. Accept disturbances and annoyances as they are. Don't tear yourself apart because you are not sioco'ee'ding In some civen effort.. . , . » • * ' . , "DON'T AVOID trouble ~ but meet It with equanimity, ,"Don !t , argue with stupidity.

In addition to the national exhibit of outstanding' photographs, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Sorensen will exhibit in this 'studio many of their own prints. The. quarters .were completed in January but the open house was deferred,'until all details could be completed.^ .MR. AND MRS, ^goren^en have been doing phPtPgranhlo worlv In their location, for ;27 years.. Last year they» razed the old frame building that was an early Esther­ vllle landmark and constructed a modern one of brick,-concrpte and glass,, especially, adaptable for photography. The studio, front is of modern design, as is the lobjjy and Its display and counter arrangements. The studio is large* with balcony and appointed dressing spapc. Tile floore were laid, throughout the building, utilizing various color schemes. OFF THE MAIN ^VLOOR workroom Is a modern photo prii}tlhg^ laboratory, with special ventilation facility, while the film-developing dark room is in the basement. On the second floor were con- -structed two modern apartments, one of which has a view of the public square. Fireproof construction was used throughout the building. To signalize occupancy of their new studio home the Borensens have not only arranged photographic displays but are serving light refreshments tomorrow and are giving favors to visitors.

Boatner said today he has cracked the resistance of Kojo Island's 80,000 onoe- dcfiant Red war prisoners. Communist-led POWS knuckled under four times today to United Nations authority. Boatner, the tough prison camp commander, then suspended for two or three days operations to break up the largo groups of prisoners. This was to permit construction of new enclosures. * * * BOATNER WOULD not go so far as to say that all resistance is ended. But it Is "definitely on the ebb and I believe the worst Is over," he told a newsman. "I would not be at all surprised at some future Incident . . . but 1 have plans to cope >^lth them." Three prisoner compounds bowed meekly to allied authority. Then prisoners In another, No. 85, responded to an ultimatum by Boatner and surrendered 21 anti-communist prisoners. • • • "I WANT NO speeches," the hard-bitten commander told five Red compound leaders. "Get back to that compound and release tho^e men by 5 p. m.!" At 4:65, the leaders delivered the 31 to the compound gate. Throe of the 21 dashed their Red-starred caps to the ground in what has come to be a gesture of antt-com- munlsm on Koje. Apparently Boatner got the names of the 21 from 17 prisoners found tied up when tank supported American Infantrymen swept the compound clear of communist flagq and signs last week. Milk Production On Iowa Farms "Four Obstacles Hold V Up Steel Settlement'' Takes Drop DCS Moines, June 13 (.ff-)—Milk production on Iowa farms lost month, estimated at 602 million pounds, is the lowest May production In the 23 years of record, the Iowa crop and livestock reporting service said todiLy. Egg production however, continued high with 471 million eggs laid during May. lAst month's milk production was four per cent less than the 624 million pounds produced in May. of last year, and 17 per cent below the 1041-60 10-year May average of 721 million pounds. Milk production per cow In crop reporters' herds as of June 1 aVei- aged 22.2 pounds, the same aii for this date last year. The decline In total production in recent years is the result of decreasing milk cow numbers, the service said. Postures are reported in excel lent condition In all areas of the state. Last month's egg production was up slightly over May of 1961 but 2 per cent below the lO-yeor average tor the months. Loses Trousers, $175 Because qf Heat Des Moines, June 13 The heat cost Mario R.

Precipitating the controversy was the accidental drowning Wednesday afternocih of 14-year-old Donald Croes near the North Fourth street bridge over the West Des Moines river. The equlptnont was not needed lo recover the boy's body for It was discovered about 600 yards downstream from the bridge where It lodged on a stump of wood neni the surface of the water. However, when rescuers first arrived. Iho boy's body was not In sight and dragging the river seemed to be necessary. « * « I'OLICR CIHEF Eugsne Bolly, one of the first rescuers at the bridge, radioed from the squad cor to the police station. The station notified the fire department, which Ix also Esthervllle's rescue sqund and Sheriff Emiet Twilo thnt someone had fallen In the rlvei. Officer Francis Solmonson said ho requested Sheriff Twito lo stand by should the rescue kit bo necessary to locate the boy. The kit consists of grappling hooks which nrn dragged along the bottom cif the water In an attempt to snag a drowned body. * * * TWITO 8AJD he did not hear the request to Stand by and wan leaving for Bmmetsburg at the time. On his 'Way, he said, he heard the polioe on his cor radio say that the body was located nnd that the rescue kit would not he necessary. Up to thnt lime, he stated, he did not know that the kit was wanted or that anything serious had occurred. He said he turned around and went to the bridge Immediately. Yesterday, the question arose as to why the rescue equipment was not kept where both city and county workers could have access to It nt nil times. The equipment had been kept In the sheriff's office lifter Its purChnse lust summer. * >> • SlIKUIFP TWITO at tknt time had requested th« city to spill the coKt of the tl71 for the equipment and minutes of a city council meet- Inn of May 7, 1981, records that councllmen agreed to it. However, county officials said that the city had never paid Its half and the county had paid all the amount. The city clerk's office reported that the city still was willing to pay for the equipment but had never been billed for it. Sheriff TwIlo said yesUrdsy thot, with the payment by the city of Its share of the cost, the resrun kit will he located in a place readily accessible by both city and county officials. He declined to ssy where It would be placed but it Is believed to be In the fire station which would be open at all limes. The courthouse Is closed most niKhts, Saturday afternoons and Sunday*. * • • TWITO ALSO arranged for a de- monatration of the rescue kit (en- tstlvely at 7 p. m. today at Spirit Lake lo arqualnt city firemen with Its operation. Harry Farr, fire chief from Spirit Lake which has similar equipment, will assist In the demonstration. Firemen and other city olficlais from here planning to attend the demonstration are Ocni!
