Word Fishing Check dictionary to be sure you hooked the correct word It is axiomatic, I suppose, that those who love to write will love words — soft words, hard words, strange words. These exotic creatures swim in our vocabularies like tropical fish. Few of us can resist the temptation to catch a few of them now and then and to land them on a bond-paper beach. Forget the metaphor. Today's warning is to treat the temptation with care. In Nevada, an editorial writer for the Las Vegas Review-Journal wanted to denounce a federal law that requires casinos to withhold taxes from the gambling winnings of foreign nationals. The writer termed it an "arcane" law. In its proper place, •'arcane" is a lovely word, but this was not its proper place, Something that is arcane is secret; it is understood only by an elect, as Masons understand their arcane rites. But as the editorial made clear, there was nothing secret or mysterious about this statute. The law had not been enforced for 50 years, but the law was not arcane. In London, The Associated Press interviewed a gentleman who had founded The Polite Society to promote better manners. The founder "sounds positively apocalyptic as he rails against littered streets and cheeky teen-agers." Perhaps AP's man in London wanted "apoplectic," but "apocalyptic" was the wrong fish. In Seattle a couple of years ago, the Times James J. Kilpatrick The Writer's Art described a peaceful view of the mountains at Banff Springs as "an apocalyptic view." But the view contained no suggestion of an armageddon in which God would destroy the forces of evil. We ought to reserve this gorgeous adjective for serious matters, like the Redskins destroying the Broncos in the Super Bowl. In Lakeland, Fla., a writer for the Ledger began his story in this fashion: "The National Democratic Party is bankrupt when it comes to ideas and is simply staying ahead on the memories of past glories, their chief protagonist, Republican U.S. Rep. Newt Gingrich, said Friday." But a protagonist is the champion of a cause, and it will be 50 below in Jonesboro, Ga., before Gingrich leads the Democratic Party. On NBC's "Today" program, an unidentified announcer let it be known in 1986 that the U.S. Mint was about to begin minting "gold bouillon." He pronounced it the French way, bull-yon. But the word he wanted was bullion, a nice 14th-century word for ingots of gold or silver. I'm unable to identify the paper, but the item had to do with a performance by the Evergreen Brass Quintet. The musicians "will perform a variety of music ranging from vibrant interpretations of Renaissance and Brogue masters to lively marches and contemporary compositions." Brogue? Were these Irish dances? The writer wanted "baroque," but the fish got away. A headline writer for The Daily Chronicle of Centralia, Wash., had a bad time in 1986 with "centurion." In January, "Three centurions live full lives." In November, "Centurion celebrates birthday." The Morgan County (Ohio) Herald had the same problem last year when Elmer Silvey turned 100. "The centurion reported that his philosophy for his long life was that he was a Frenchman with an Irish attitude." These folks were centenarians, for heaven's sake. A centurion hasn't been since the days of the Roman legions. In San Antonio, a sportswriter for the Express-News reported that Al Davis "hurled an epitaph or two early on Sunday during the Raiders-Cowboys duel." In the Chicago Sun-Times, by contrast, another sportswriter rued the death of superstar PeteMaravich. Social Security May Not Pay Chiropractor Bills This question-answer feature is designed to provide answers to questions about the Social Security program. Q. I recently took a bad fall and injured my back. Will Medicare pay for my chiropractor treatment? A. Medicare medical insurance helps pay for only one kind of treatment furnished by a licensed and Medicare-certified chiropractor. The only treat- ment covered is manual manipulation of the spine to correct a partial or complete dislocation that can be demonstrated by X-ray — it does not pay for any other diagnostic or therapeutic services, including X-rays, furnished by a chiropractor. Q. I'll be going into the hospital next month for an operation. I'll probably be there for several weeks. If I have a television in my room, will Medicare pay for it? A. No. Medicare hospital insurance cannot pay for a television or other items of personal convenience, such as a radio or a telephone in your room. Q. I receive SSI payments and plan to move to another state soon. Will I have to apply for SSI all over again? A. No, but be sure to tell Social Security when you move so your checks can be sent to your new address. Also, the amount of your check may change since some states add money to the federal payment. (Editor's note: Questions and answers are provided by the Kokomo Social Security office. Questions should be sent to the Social Security office, Kokomo, and should state name and address of sender.)
