Feather River Bulletin Portola Reporter Indian Valley Record Chester Progressive Wed., May 13, 1981 TTp jf$$o htCal&h LGohing bach by Dr. A. Laurence Kiefer, M.D. Plumas County Health Officer Streptococcal pharyngitis is better known as "strept throat". This condition must be carefully separated from other infectious agents including many bacteriae and viruses causing sore throat. It is very common to hear, "I just got over a strept throat". And the speaker thought they were correct in the statement, but without positive laboratory confirmation, the chances are against it being streptococcal in origin, Strept occurs in epidemics; it is marked by intense soreness, . local inflammation, with or without a grayish coating on the throat and enlargement of the cervical lymph glands. Physical examination alone cannot make a positive diagnosis. The rash and other infections can be associated with rashes that mimic scarlet fever. Tender nodes in the front of the neck may be present in about 50 percent of cases of Group A Streptococcal Pharyngitis, but they may also be seen in non-streptococcal disease. Infection is spread by direct contact or by milk. Group A Streptococcal sore throat commands special attention because of complications that may take place if the diagnosis is not correctly made and proper treatment carried out. Most patients suffering from streptococcal "sore throat" show improvements within 2 or 3 days, with or without antibiotic therapy. You may ask then, "Why treat?" The answer: 1) To prevent complications such as ear infections, mastoiditis, sinusitis, upper respiratory infection and 2) to decrease the spread of organisms to other close contacts in school or at home. In addition, certain "high risk" families in which there are rheumatic patients, should be protected by quick eradication of Group A Streptococcus. Chess challenge by Leonard Moser 283-1226 On the 29th day of April, I talked to International Grandmaster Samuel Reshevsky, and asked him these few questions about chess. "Mr. Reshevsky what is your favorite opening?" "My favorite opening has got to be one of the Queens Pawn openings, but are you trying to find out my secrets?" "How much to you charge for lessons, analysis, correspondence games, and simultaneous exhibitions?" "Lessons are $35 an hour. Analysis is $15 per game. Correspondence games are $25 each and I can't really say how much simultaneous exhibitions will cost. That would depend on how far I must travel." "Do you believe you will be able to make it to the United States Open in Palo Alto this August?" "No, I don't believe so." Samuel Reshevsky seemed to be a very polite and friendly type of man. I could sense a certain kind of power in his voice, along with a small trace of an accent. He also seemed to be more confident in himself than anyone I have ever talked to. Reshevsky's record is also impressive. He has won the United States Chess Championship a total of seven times. He held the title for eight straight years, 1936 to 1944, defending it five times successfully, then losing it to Arnold Denker in 44. Impressive is the fact that he defended the title five times successfully. This is a record that even Bobby Fischer could not break. Fischer did it four times twice, but never five times. Below is a game that was played by Samuel Reshevsky, and Larry Evans. Larry Evans was the Co-Champion this year for the United States Championship. He has also held the title four other times. The defense is the King's Indian defense and Reshevsky plays an attacking game with convincing precision. Reshevsky White vs Evans Black 1. P-Q4 N-KB3 2. P-QB4 P-KN3 3. P-KN3 B-N2 4. B-N2 O-O 5.

JJach Amdersma President turns on charm for sake of his programs By Jack Anderson and Joe Spear WASHINGTON - Jimmy Carter never seemed to figure out how to stroke the egos on Capitol Hill, but Ronald Reagan has already shown 'that he's an expert at the job. ' In an effort to sell his economic programs, the president has been concentrating on Democrats in Congress who might be susceptible to siren songs from the White House. He has been buttering them up with the kind of presidential charm and attention that hasn't been seen around Washington since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. One White House target has been Rep. Beverly Byron, D-Md. She hadn't made up her mind whether she would support the Reagan budget or the Democratic competition's version. So Reagan poured on the old Hollywood soft soap. Mrs. Byron was offered seats at the opera and the symphony. She declined politely. Then she got the ultimate persuasion - a call from the president himself. What made it even more impressive was the fact that he tried two or three times before he finally caught her on the phone. Another Reagan target was Rep. Jack Hightower, D-Texas. The president reached him by phone at his Texas ranch and urged Hightower to support the administration's budget "for the country." And about 10 days ago, the president invited five Democratic congressmen to the White House for a private meeting. The session lasted for an hour and a half. Vice President Bush was also in attendance. Toward the end of the meeting, President Reagan offered Rep. Marvin Leath of Texas a packet of jellybeans for his 12-year-old son. As the president was about to autograph the package of candy, an aide reminded him that Prince Charles was waiting next door. Showing a clear sense of priorities, the president remarked that the future king of England would just have to wait while he signed his name to the bag of jellybeans for the congressman's son. The president can't be everywhere, of course. But the effort to win over Demo-crats has obvious top priority in the White House. Rep. Sam Stratton, D-N.Y., for example, has been called by half a dozen Cabinet officers, including Treasury Secretary Donald Regan, Health and Human Services Secretary Richard Schweik-er. Transportation Secretary Drew Lewis and even Secretary of State Alexander Haig. If Ronald Reagan fails to get his programs through Congress, it won't be for lack of trying. JOB SCAM - President Reagan has set limits on the number of employees who can be on the payroll of federal agencies, but two departments are engaging in a juggling act with their workers that will probably end up costing the taxpayers more money. Here's how the "Job Scam" works: The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has a loan program to help low-income Americans fix up their homes. But many of the borrowers find they can't meet their loan payments. As of last year, for example, there were 8,000 defaults on these home-improvement loans. A year ago, the department hired a dozen temporary workers to track down the defaulters and collect what they owed Uncle Sam. The temporary employees did their jobs well. They managed to collect 3,500 of the defaulted loans and got many of the other backsliders to make payments. But now the department is thinking of dismissing the temporary employees in order to meet the personnel limit. It is considering turning over the bill-collecting jobs to private companies. But here is the catch: HUD will try to get the private collection agencies to hire the laid-off government workers. They would still be paid indirectly by the government, but their salaries wouldn't come out of the department's personnel budget. So, on paper, there would be fewer employees on the federal payroll. The same thing is going on at the Department of Education, where there is a problem with student loan programs. Thousands of for mer students have skipped out on their government loans, so the. department hired temporary employees to chase down the deadbeats. Now the department wants to cut down on the number of workers on its payroll, and there go the temporary bill collectors. But here again, the department is trying to get the private collection agencies to hire the laid-off workers. The taxpayers won't save a nickel. In fact, according to Rep. Paul Simon, D-Ill., the switch to private bill collectors may make the situation worse because they will probably be paid with a percentage of what they managed to collect. As a result, they'll go after the easy loans, take their percentage and leave the hard-core deadbeats for the government to find. HEADLINES & FOOTNOTES - Federal education programs are scheduled for a 25-percent slash, but the schools which educate the children of ambassadors and servicemen abroad are due for a $27 million increase. This is because they are funded by the Pentagon, which the White House has declared off limits to the budget-cutters ... Energy Department bureaucrats predict that gasoline will cost between $1.47 and $1.75 a gallon by Christmas, but one expert admitted such predictions "have not been reliable in the past."
