Page 18 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Friday, March 18, 1988 LaRouche Ruled Off Ballot; Bayh Appeal Still Planned Name That Rule Game show host Karen Chilcott gets o pie in the face from the contestants at the conclusion of the final round. The game show, called Name That Steve Summers/Pharos-Tribune Rule, was part of a skit produced by the Columbia Middle School Ecology Club. The club took their show on the road and performed for other students in the other city schools. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Lyndon H. LaRouche has been ruled off Indiana's Democratic presidential primary ballot. The State Election Board concluded on Thursday that the political extremist's supporters had failed to meet the requirements for signatures to qualify him for the May 3 ballot. The supporters filed the petitions with the secretary of state's office before the March 4 filing deadline, but the secretary of state's office left LaRouche's name off the certified list of primary candidates because of the failure to meet the signature requirement. Indiana law requires 500 signatures from each of the state's 10 congressional districts. The LaRouche petitions met that requirement in nine districts and had more than 5,000 signatures overall, but the peti- tions had only 325 signatures in the 10th District, according to election board Chairman John R. Whitaker. The 10th District lies within Marion County. In other action, election board special counsel David F. McNamar said Thursday he was completing papers that will begin the process of appealing a decision that Democratic Secretary of State Evan Bayh meets the five-year residency requirement to be governor. McNamar said he expects to file his motion to correct errors with Shelby Circuit Court Judge Charles D. O'Connor today. O'Connor ruled Monday that Bayh meets the constitutional residency requirement. If O'Connor rejects the motion, Tornado Drill Cindy Mills/Pharos-Tribune Students at tongfellow Elementary participated in the tornado drills that were conducted Thursday afternoon throughout the city. The students were instructed to 90 to the lower deck of their locations and sit down on the floor with their heads covered, when the alarm went off at 2:15 p.m. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Millions of dollars are waisted on nonsensical prescriptions from quacks who prey on the public's distrust of authority, a nationally known expert on quackery says. Dr. John Renner of the National Council Against Health Fraud said Thursday the public likes to believe doctors conspire to withhold secret cures. Quacks become an attractive alternative by marketing cures that end up amounting to "pure nonsense," he said. "If that were true, you would see no old doctors; you'd see no wrinkled doctors; you'd see no fat doctors. We'd get in on the secret," Renner said. Renner, director of community health at. Trinity Lutheran Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., was in Indianapolis to give several speeches on quackery. Hair analyses that identify vitamin deficiencies, injections of fetal sheep cells to improve stamina and other "cures" are being peddled every day to an unsuspecting public, Renner said. "Quacks like to use buzzwords like 'tiffany' to indicate quality. Anything that you haven't heard of — Venus' flytrap juice, ant venom. You name it, they will package and sell it," he said. "Do you know how profitable pond scum is?" Renner asked. "This algae that grows on ponds, they bottle it and tell people it's super healthy because it's got some green in it." Renner sometimes goes undercover to expose fraudulent treatments. He once pretended to be crippled and confined to a wheelchair. Another time he donned a wig and a Panama hat. In a speech to medical students at the Indiana University School of Medicine, Renner gave some examples of bogus therapies. Quackery can be humorous, he said, but it often victimizes patients with terminal diseases and elderly people with debilitating illnesses such as arthritis. Even professionals aren't clear of the quack, he said. Some doctors on the staffs of prestigious medical schools have lent their names to ineffective products in exchange for research grants from the product manufacturers, Renner said. "We need to make sure that they're not being manipulated into promoting quackery. They need to have their index of suspicion very, very high." Congressmen Divided On Troop Deployment INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Sen. Dan Quayle, R-Ind., doesn't believe deployment of 3,200 U.S. troops to Honduras will cause an escalation of the situation. The Sandinistas' entry into Honduras shows what will happen if the United States doesn't give the Contras enough aid to be an effective threat to the Sandinistas, Quayle said Thursday. "If the Sandinistas are able to get ahold and militarize Nicaragua, they will work beyond the borders of Nicaragua," he said. "Without the Contras, potential American involvement becomes more of a possibility." President Reagan ordered troops to Honduras late Wednesday after Honduran President Jose Azcona Hoyo asked the U.S. for help. Sen. Richard G. Lugar, R-Ind., said Reagan's decision was a "good judgment call" that's already having an impact on the Sandinistas. "There are some reports the Sandinistas, because of this, are pulling back," said Andrew J. Fisher, a spokesman for Lugar. Rep. Frank McCloskey, D-Ind., considered the action a mistake. "I do hope cooler heads prevail and the peace process continues," he said Thursday. Congress refused further aid to the Contras Feb. 29. STYLE ATTRACTION SALON Full Family Service OPEN WON.
