Parade's special INTELLIGENCE REPORT DIET 116. In 1892 Simon Lake offered his invention, the submarine, to the U.S. Government. It was turned down. Fallowing World War II, Capt. Hyman Rickover suggested that the U.S. Navy become nuclear powered. Navy brass tried to retire Rickover, Now comes the case of Diet 116. Several years ago the late Dr. Jesse Greenstein, a cancer expert working for the National Cancer Institute, and his associate, Dr. Milton Winitz, developed a synthetic diet called "Diet 116." It consists of amino acid crystals dissolved in water, plus carbohydrates, vitamins and essential fats--all the materials necessary for growth, tissue repair and maintenance. Amino acids are the basic constituents of protein. They can be made out of elements in the air. One cubic foot of Diet 116 is enough to sustain a human being for 30 days. The amino acid crystals, now expensive to manufacture, can be manufactured cheaply if one small pilot factory is erected. Diet 116 can be.used in our Foreign Aid Program, our Space Program, has many medical uses. Diet 116 has worked perfectly on rats and a few human beings. Dr. Winitz is so sure of it he is willing to give it to his two young children. The Diet looks like tea and can be made to taste like any flavored soda. The National Institutes of Health, however, is cutting back on the Diet 116 project, which could very well be one of the most world-wide humanitarian projects ever developed by U.S. scientists. Before Dr. Winitz leaves government service, which he may do, the Kennedy Administration had best contact him. ThrTce-toJd Idle: Susan Hayward and John Gavin star in new version of classic Sack Street. RAINIER CIGARETTES. His Serene Highness, Prince Rainier of Monaco, is a sharp promoter.

The motion picture industry, which is always chasing itself around in cycles, is now on a remake binge. Ever since Ben Hur hit it big, the studios have been searching through old story files for hits of yesteryear. MGM, for example, is remaking Mutiny on the Bounty, first released in 1935; The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, released in 1921. Twentieth Century-Fox, having remade The Blue Angel (1930), is preparing to remake State Fair (1945) and Of Human Bondage (1934 and 1946). Universal, having remade Imitation of Life, a 1934 release, has just finished another remake, Back Street, which originally was made in 1932 with Irene Dunne and John Boles, then remade agair in 1941 with Margaret Sullavan and Charles Boyer. The third version stars Susan Hayward and John Gavin. NEW GAMBLERS. New legislation liberalizing gambling in England has housewives placing their bets with the milkman. The milkman turns the bets over to a licensed bookie, and the next day the housewife, if she's lucky, gets her winnings with the morning's milk delivery. Church and civic leaders are already denouncing the new legislation, claim it will undermine the typical British home.
