PAQE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Monday,' Dec. 28, 1964 "Please, ladjes! Ihe roaming violinist is costing us tea "'dollars an hour!" " On The Farm Front (Reg. U. S. Pat. Off.) By GAYLORD P. GODWIN United Press International , WASHINGTON (UPI)—There will not be as many pork chops, ham and bacon available this winter and next spring as there were a year earlier because the on-the-hoof supply of these commodities is smaller. The price of these commodities, however, is not expected to fluctuate greatly from current price tags, but to keep on an upward trend. Even though the supply of pork is down, there are more than ample supplies of competitive meat in the form of beef and poultry. Agriculture Department officials believe the competitive meats likely will prevent prices of pork from rising noticeably, while the supply situation itself will prevent a drop in retail prices. The department said Wednesday the 1964 pig crop totaled IENCE AND YO! By DELOS SMITH UPI Science Editor NEW YORK (UPI) — An order newly placed with medical science is to pinpoint the harmful things long-time drinking docs to the heart besides interfere with its nutrition. The order may be ignored There is no general scientific suspicion of heart disease being among the dire penalties of excessive devotion to bottles—be yong that nutritional flaw which can be corrected. On the -other hand, it could be embarrassing. An "associa tion" between heart disease and heavy drinking has been known for a long time. And the order came from the internationally known cardiologist, Dr. Wallace Brigden. He inferred his colleagues are largely blind to the alcoholic factor in many of their pa tients. And he went at them with 49 men and 1 woman with heart disease for .which there was no evident cause. They had in common years of heavy drinking. Says Drinking Cause These 50 add up to much more than a mere "association," he said. The drinking was the cause of the disease, he contended even though how drinking did it and the nature ' of individual susceptibility to this alcoholic reaction on the heart are things for science to find out. The rebound of malnutrition on the heart is caused by years of too little vitamin B-l (Thiamine) in the diet, and it can be corrected by supplying the lack. Among his 50 heavy drinkers this "cardiac berbiberi was the least frequent and least serious disorder," Brigden said. Only five of the 50 had it and their, hearts responded well to vitamin medication. Muscle Involved None of the 50 had heart dis ease due to blockages in the artery which supplies the heart muscle, the myocardium, but that muscle was involved in all 50 cases. The 50 were between 33 and 72 years old and when their hearts came to Brigden's attention. All had been heavy drinkers for longer than 10 years. The whisky drinkers drank "one bottle a day or more" and the average daiiy consumption of the beer drinkers feel a little short of two gallons. Speculatively brigden suggest, ed the heart muscle may be injured by a direct poisoning effect from continuous high blood levels of alcohol. Or. there' could be an allergic effect in some persons who have been become subtly sensitized to alcohol. What ever the causes, he wanted medical science to find them. 88.4 million head, down 7 per cent from the 1963 crop. The spring crop, raised during the December 1963-May 1964 period, totaled 47.9 million head. This combined with the June 1964- November 1964, crop of 40.5 million head made up the 1964 crop. The department said the prospective spring crop—November| 1964-May 1965—'would involve| farrowing of 6.2 million sows, per cent less than the 6.6 million sows that farrowed dur ing the same period a -year earlier. The corn belt states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas supplied most of the U.S. hog population this year— 69,009.000 head.

FRESH Jowl In Piece The Agriculture Department said the price paid for electricity by rural consumers on lines financed by the Rural Electrification Administration continued to drop during 1964. The department said there were rate reductions during the first 49 weeks of 1964 by a record 114 REA electric borrowers. The agency said only four borrowers found it necessary to raise rates during the year. It estimated the 1964 reductions will save rural consumers at least $1.5 million annually on their electric bills. ROAST Silver Shield PORK STEAK Eckrich SM0RGAS PAK LB. LB.
