HAYS DAILY NEWS December 24, 1978 Health Benefits Seen In Chinese-Style Food By JEANNE LESEM "•' UP! Family Editor "Jacqueline Newman is so •Serious about Chinese cookery -that she and her husband toted Vwo heavy gas stoves home '.from Hong Kong to use with bowlshaped woks in their all' electric kitchen in a New York ;6ity suburb. ' * Actually, Leonard Newman . Carried the stoves in a 'shoulder bag, while she hauled ' 37 Chinese cookbooks she had bought in the Crown Colony. - t ''' Mrs. Newman is an adjunct 'lecturer in home economics at 'Queens College in the New York borough of Queens. She thinks traditional Chinese food tlnd eating habits could help '"dope with the over- Consumption and un- I'rinlrd Pattern dernourlshment problems that beset many Americans. In an interview, she said she also wanted the stoves to use in the Chinese cookery classes she conducts from time to time in their home in Smithtown, • N.Y., and the series of Saturday classes she conducts at New York University. In addition, she has also taught Chinese cooking at Queens college, branch of the City University of New York. After 20 years of teaching ethnic cooking, Mrs. Newman thinks Chinese food could be adapted to become the food of America's • future, accepted for its nutritional and health benefits as well as good taste and variety.: "There is nothing in Chinese ..cuisine to offend a good nutritionist," she wrote in a recent article in the "Journal of Home Economics." What about the high sodium content of soy sauce and ail those other spicy condiments the Chinese cook with? "High sodium content is a serious problem for some pebple," she said. "They must learn to cook without soy sauce, there is no substitute for it. But they can make some other sauces." Substitutes won't taste the same, Mrs. Newman said, but she has found them acceptable to those of her students who must avoid high-sodium food. She makes an oyster sauce substitute with fresh water fish, water and brown corn syrup. The comparable Chinese product contains oysters, sugar, soy sauce and salt. She also has develoepd a recipe for low-sodium bean curd, the high-protein, low fat, low-cost staple of Chinese cookery. The health benefits she sees in Chinese-style, food and cooking and eating habits include the limited use of meats and unlimited use of fresh fruits and vegetables; the stir-fry technique that permits quick cooking of produce and consequent high retention of vitamins; and the wide use of fish and vegetable protein, particularly bean products. "They have a great concern for freshness (of ingredients), which is important to. nutrition," Mrs. Newman said. She added that the Chinese probably get close to the recommended one-third of their daily nutrients from their typical morning meal of rice or millet gruel or noodles or steamed bread with one or two small dishes of salted fish or other well-seasoned or salted food. It is also their way of using up little bits of leftovers from the previous day's meals. She envisions no problems in gradually introducing Chinese-American food to Americans of all ages.-She said her own students, who have included elementary, junior high and high school students as well as adults, seem to know about Chinese food and have'an interest in it.

Print NAME, AD' PRESS, ZIP, SIZE and STYLE NUM' BER. NEW YORK (UPI) — Most teen-age girls believe boys Who wear glasses should switch to contact lenses. Their attitudes', implying, a twist on "boys never make passes at girls who wear glasses," are revealed in a new survey of 1,300 girls ranging from 13 to 19 years old. They represent balanced cross-section of girls from all parts of the country. Of the total surveyed, 63.7 per cent wear some type of vision correction themselves — eyeglasses, soft or hard contact lenses. Of those, nearly half (48.9 per cent) wear contact lenses. The study was funded by Bausch and Lomb, the company that first introduced soft contact lenses into the United States in 1971. When the girls on the survey panel were questioned about boys and contacts, 77 per cent of the 1,300 teenagers said they believe boys need contact lenses just as much as girls do. The contact lens -wearers felt stronger about the question than those with eyeglasses. Ninety-two per cent of those with soft contact lenses and 86 per cent of the hard contact wearers felt boys . should switch to contacts. When asked if the boys prefer girls with contact lenses, they were less enthusiastic. Of the 1,300, 38 per cent agreed; 30.6 per cent were neutral; and 30.4 per cent disagreed. However, percentages vary among girls who wear con- HAZEL "Find the catnip mouse?"

CARD OF THANKS I wish to than(c all the doctors, nurses and staff for the wonderful care while in the Quinter Hospital at Quinter and the Hadley Hospital at Hays, also for the many people that remembered me wit^h cards, phone calls, visits, gifts and the kind deeds you did for my family. Your prayers helped a lot as there were many prayer groups that wrote me that they were praying for me, and I wish every one a Merry Christmas, and a Happy Healthy New Year. Harold G. Johnson, Grainfield. (Adv.) tacts, Almost half (47 per cent) said boys prefer girls with contact lenses; 33 per cent are neutral; and 20 per cent disagreed. The girls rated contact lenses as disirable for two reasons to improve appearance (86.5 per cent) and to eliminate the inconvenience or bother of wearing eyeglasses (79.1 1 per cent). However, contact lenses do not mean the end of eyeglasses for girls in the survey panel. Of the contact lens wearers, 57.8 per cent also wear glasses some of the time. More hard lens wearers (60.8 per cent) wear glasses occasionally than soft contact lens wearers (42.6 per cent). Events that involve boys rate the highest for using contact lenses. The girls voted for the following activities for wearing contact lenses: school, 86 per cent; social events for girls and boys, 85 per cent; movies, concerts and plays, 63 per cent; and outdoor sports, _ 57 per cent. Social activities with girls rated only 14 per cent.
