GRAHAM: I know you are an avid student of'future events. What do you see for the future of the United Stfctes and Western civilization? - W.E. DEAR W.E.: Our whole civilization is built upon Judeo-Christian principles. Although we have not always followed these principles, coitcepts like the worth of the individual, the dignity of labor, the importance of meJality, and the social responsibilities we all share are 1 : rooted in the Bible. I believe these concepts have made us great and prosperous. (However, in this century we Ijave seen a crumbling of that foundation. Materialism and ' gcess have replaced feritual ideals. God and His fr'ral law are not only irgotten in our private lives, ijufexcluded -- sometimes by rjnan-made law -- from our dublic life. This is a dangerous tj^nd. The Bible says, "For lhf. nation and kingdom that will -not serve .thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted" 'Isaiah 60:12). What about the future, on he one hand, there are en- couraging signs: Many people rave discovered the emp- ·iness of secular life and are ALLEY OOP turning to Christ. On the other hand, I know that once a trend away from God is established in a nation it is hard to reverse. My- prayer (and I hope the prayer of every Christian) is that we will return again to God. "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord" (Psalms 33:12). DEAR DR. LAMB -- From what I've read I've always thought any athlete would need a high protein diet, but at the last Olympic games some of the athletes were supposed- ly on high carbohydrate diets. Would such a diet be recommended for a weight lifter trying to build muscle as well as a runner or a boxer who needs long-lasting energy? Would you give an ex- ample of a high carbohydrate diet? DEAR READER - The only reason one needs protein as opposed to carbohydrate or fat in the diet is to provide enough of the amino acids in protein to replace lost protein from the body or to build new protein as in new muscle growth. The calorie needs of the body for energy can be supplied by any of these three basic foods. Your question is a bit like asking me if you should burn coal or wood to heat the house. There is no ad- vantage in consuming more protein than is needed for the building processes I men- tioned. Carbohydrates are a good source of energy because the body can process them rapidly and they require less oxygen to enable your cells to release the energy than does either fat or protein. That is because carbohydrates already con- tain some oxygen. Whether you are using car- bohydrates, protein or fat you need to consume enough calories to meet your needs and still leave the protein available for building pur- poses. So, 100 grams of pro- tein a day with adequate total calorie intake from any source is more than adequate for most muscle building programs despite what you may have been told by people interested in selling protein supplements. energy is sugar. All of the sweets are concentrated car- bohydrates obtained from vegetables, fruits and cereals -- corn syrup, beet sugar, honey from flowers' nectar. Starch is also concentrated carbohydrate and is broken down to sugar by the digestive process before it is absorbed. The advantage of the car- bohydrate foods also is that one can increase the calorie intake without increasing the fat and cholesterol consump- tion. Many of the so called high protein foods contain lots of fat and cholesterol. A high percentage of the calories hi a porterhouse steak or many roasts are from fat not pro- tein. ' You should know that an ex- cess of any calories -- above what you need for real muscle growth, maintaining your body and providing energy for your activities -- will be con- verted to fat and cholesterol by your body. Your body can change sugar to cholesterol. A good diet for everyone, in- cluding athletes, will thus avoid obesity while providing the needed energy re- quirements.

Prof. Merrill- May, director of developmental reading at Pur- due, heads the developmental reading courses offered to stu- dents here. Each semester about 800 students plunge into the one- credit hour course they call "speedy reading," hoping to make next term's assignments more bearable. "Almost anyone can be trained to do better, but most poor readers are that way because they haven't read enough." says May. you.
