Times News Service SEATTLE — The American Diabetes Association has recommended that physicians encourage their diabetic patients to eat the same amount of carbohydrate foods—sugars, starches and celluloses — as Americans who are unaffected by the disease. If physicians and patients follow the association's recommendation, it will mean a major change in the rationale of treating the disease that has afflicted man since ancient times. The Association said that the recommendation to alter diabetics' diets — raising carbohydrates and thereby lowering fats — was taken to minimize the risk of diabetic patients developing hardened arteries (called arteriosclerosis), heart attacks and strokes. Though the private association's guidelines are not binding on physicians, the recommendations are likely to influence the dietary care of many of the 2.8 million known diabetics in this country. The Association said that an additional 1.6 million Americans have undetected diabetes. Tha recommendations, which recommended diabetica eat. However, many doctors have urged their diabetic patients to limit carbohydrates to about 30 per cent of the calories in their daily diet, and, thereby, eat a disproportionately larger amount of fats. Now, the Association says, a diabetic's diet like those of other Americans, can have about were made in a "special re- 45 per cent carbohydrates. Carport," were intended as a gen eral policy. Like all other general guidelines in medicine, they may have to be tailored by a physician to an individual patient's needs. Diet is a cardinal therapy for diabetes because weight reduction alone can control the disease in many — but not all- adult diabetics. Limited Carbohydrates In the past, the Association has not set limits on the amount of carbohydrates that it has bohydrates include a wide variety of sugars. Table sugar is just one of many that nature provides. The remainder of the diet should consist of fats and proteins in a ratio geared to the patient's taste and lus doctor's advice. Because the Association says that most diabetics must limit their calories each day, this means that these patients would eat less fat. Fifty years after the discovery of insulin—the hormone that among other functions controls the blood sugar level —artcrosderosis has become the major killer of diabetics. Americans now rarely die of diabetic coma because, insulin, derived inexpensively from the pancreas glands of animals, is widely available for human use. Not All Require Insulin However, not all diabetics require insulin. Doctors generally prescribe insulin injections for patients whose diabetes cannot be managed by special diet or pills. Such pills do not contain insulin, but rather other drugs that, by different pharmacologic actions, affect the blood sugar level. "There no longer appears to be any need to restrict disproportionately the intake of carbohydrates in the diet of most diabetic patients," the Association said in the current issue of Diabetes, a scientific journal that the American Diabetes Association publishes. "The average proportion of calories consumed as carbohydrate in the U.S. population as a whole approximates 45 per cent: This proportion or even higher appears to be acceptable for the usual diabetic patient as well," the report said. Dr. Edwin L. Bierman, who was chairman of the committee that wrote the report, stressed in an interview here: "For those adult diabetics treated by diet alone, the cornerstone of our recommendation is restriction of total caloric intake and it doesn't make any difference how you do it." Bierman is considered one of the nation's leading researchers on diabetes and arteriosclerosis. Deaths Elsewhere Harold A. Dinwiddie Harold A.

Mrs. Anderson said she asked the boy if he wasn't a little young to be walking by himself. "I'm three," he replied.

Youths Picket Store Armed with carboard placards, seven Hutchinson youths picketed Fitzgerald Grocery Saturday afternoon in protest of the sentencing of Bennie L. Ferguson, 233 Shadduck. Ferguson, an 18-year-old Hutchinson Community College student, was found guilty of shoplifting from the store in a municipal court hearing Friday. He was sentenced to six months in jail. It was incorrectly reported that Ferguson was also found innocent of that charge. One of the seven who picketed the store at 8th and Plum said he felt the sentence did not fit the crime. Gene Fitzgerald testified that the youth tried to take a 20-cent package of soup from the store last June without paying for it. The teenage boys and girls paraded up and down the sidewalk carrying homemade signs. "Don't Buy Soup Here," was scrawled on one sign. Police were called to the scene but only to help direct the busy Saturday afternoon traffic in and near the Fitzgerald parking lot. Traffic was somewhat slowed down by the marchers, police said. Although the picketers drew a considerable amount of attention to the store, Fitzgerald says their intentions backfired. "I welcome these kids back anytime — they're helping my business and defeating their own cause," Fitzgerald said. He offered the picketers free refreshments but they declined. Police received a report Saturday morning from a Fitzgerald employe that someone had tossed a brick through one of the store's windows during the night. No merchandise was reported damaged.

Found Delinquent On LSD Charge Juvenile Judge E. Victor Wilson has declared delinquent a 17-year-old charged with selling LSD at the "Back to the Land" rock concert July 7 near Partridge.

A disposition hearing was set for 1:30 p.m. Thursday., at which time Judge Wilson said he might release the juvenile 's name.

McMillan, ANCA vice president, says the White House understands the situation and that the Agriculture Department is "sympathetic but noncommittal" on the proposal. W. D. Farr, Greeley, Colo., association president, explains it this way: Traditionally in the spring consumers turn from winter pot roasts and brown gravy to summertime steaks. The hot weather barbecue market is a large factor. Steaks come from the hindquarter of a beef carcass. With the larger demand, wholesale prices for hindquar During the summer, Farr said, supermarkets offered pot freeze' roast at bargains of 49 to 59 cents a pound. Now, under nor­ ma! conditions, they would be increased to around 69 cents. About 10 cents would be taken off steak prices and put on pot roasts, he said.

There is Then when school starts in the fall, the demand drops for steak and rises for pot roasts. Wholesale prices are adjusted accordingly. Consumers wind up paying more for forequarter roasts and less for steaks. The current freeze, however, has resulted in meat packers and supermarkets being unable to make the adjustments, with the result that demand for forequarter meat is draining supplies while supplies of steaks and other loin cuts are mounting. , The result, Farr said in an interview, is a Iower-than-nor- mal price for the entire beef carcass, which means less money for the cattle feeder. Farr says the wholesale price could be allowed to rise and fall to compensate for the seasonal demand without affecting the entire carcass price. little likelihood the huge feed supply will result in price breaks for the cattle market although feeders may market somewhat heavier animals later on. Another factor in the near future is the restocking of southwest cattle herds, depleted by drought for more than a year.
