24 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Wed., Mny 3, 1D72 As Boyle Sees It By HAL BOYLE Farewell lo the Hospital 1'an One Stroke Doesn't Deserve Another--Not if You Learn Your Lesson. By HAL BOYLE NEW YOHK (AP) - At leasl one in every 100 living Americans IIHS had a stroke and survived. 1 joined Ihis growing two million-plus group a liltle over six e , weeks ago. The one nsks a stroke viclim is, "Whal did it feel like?" Well, in my UHSC, it didn't feel like any- t h i n g . Nothing I'm a/raiti it wasn't dramatic Television Review By CYNTHIA L O W R Y AP T«levlilon Radio Writer NU\V YOHK (AP) . Dark Side," filling NBC's noiir-i" lr j " lllc tony special program niche Tuesday night, wus n pilot show for a scries. It was atme al HID hcighls hi quality bu lurncd out seriously flawed. Thc.ilii'cclor's eiircer, went on Hie cmptiiig n rerun ot "The (ilcn cveiiliifi. [ire- Oiniphcll Show." Some Nelwork Planners See question everyone pre- any at all. There was no monition or warning of kind. I felt no lightning bolt o"f pain. Or even a twinge. No confusion. No fainting or f a l l i n g down. No outcry. No paralysis or numbness. But when (he phone rang on my desk late in Ihe afternoon of March 16, I noticed as I answered it that my voice suddenly was slurring. Having been a hypochondriac since shortly before birlh, my mind instantly jumped to lire right conclusion: I had had a slight slroke ... and might be in the grip of a continuing, one. "How many martinis did you have at lunch?" my friend remarked. "You sound like you liad four." "None," I told him f r u l h f u l l y . "You know I've been on a temperance binge since the first of the year." After hanging up, I went out to the office washroom mirror and studied my face. I found I could wrinkle my brows and move both eyes freely. No pain. No feeling of weakness or numbness or lack of coordination in hands, legs or feet. There did seem to be a slight downward turn at the left cor- licr of my mouth, but hardly enough lo dent the winning charm of my manly dimple. I went home and decided not to do anything until morning, which could have been a deadly decision but wasn't. When I awoke, the bathroom mirror confirmed the definite lurndown at 1he corner of my mouth, and a short rendition aloud- of the Gettysburg Address sounded like Abraham Lincoln f u l l of martinis. But it was no worse. The stroke was over. After going to the office and writing my daily column, I reported to the company nurse 'and doctor who found my blood pressure was still in the gasket blowing range--180 over 140, It should have been 130 or 140 over 80. Three hours later, I .was in a Viospital next lo the room in which a famous movie star several years before had been treated successfully for his occupational ailment--delirium tremens. I spent the afternoon drawing up a new will and spent the evening--without Ihe knowledge or consent of my doctor--drinking Irish whisky with several grieving friends. They had gathered there largely, I believe, in the hope that since it was St. Patrick's Day, I would surely reward them by making an immortal deathbed utterance. I made several, as a matter of fact, but nobody bothered fo take notes. I awoke wilh my first hangover of 1972, one I am beginning to suspect will be the last one of my life. There followed 15 days o] complete bed rest during which they tested everything excepl my I.Q.--an oversight--and look enough blood from me to give Dracula a bubble bath. Heart action okay. No diabetes. No gold stars for the liver, but blood pressure going steadily down, down, down. Then, I had a few weeks ol recuperation, which is a medical word for loafing. Last week I made a mistake. I went to the boss and bragged t h a t I was the only one on his staff al the moment with medical proof t h a t he had a normal brain. This was because an encephalogram of my hcai faken the day before showed no rocks but only explainable routine waves. "I didn'l know we had brain like thai left in the nrgan- izalion," acknowledged the boss. "Do you think it would hurt it if we put it back to work for a change?" So, one slroke and a liltle more than six weeks later, here 1 am back al Ihc lypswriler. A few \cnrA) of counsel: For nearly 20 years f have hnd high blood pressure and carried up lo 40 pounds too much weight, the equivalent of lugging around three howling pidly resisted lh= doctors' plw to do anything about either. Now my bloou pressure s normal and I have taken off 25 pounds willi 15 yet to go. Slur, Sir? No, sir! "You have had your warning," my doclor said. "How long you live now depends pretty much on wlicther you learned '.vour lesson." The same is probably true of most or the 30 million Americans who arc overweight and :he 20 million who have high aiood pressure, of whom 10 million are unaware they have. Living on a sensible diet and aking two pills n day doesn't seem like loo high a price lo pay for doubling or tripling 'our chances for a longer life. An even more immediate reward: You feel better right away and have more energy with which lo enjoy life. Try il-yon'll like it, or I'll ;ive you your money back, jails day and night. But I sln- 1 would like to close by t h a n k i n g many friends anct readers across (he country who sent me kind messages of en- coiirageniiMit during my illness. It is nice to return lo a world in which you feel welcomed. I also am grateful to the writers who wrote substitute columns dur- ng my absence, but do wish hey hadn't all been quite so clever. Tire-Miles Cheaper AKRON, Ohio -- Sixty years ago, tire costs were close to 2 0 cents a vehicle-mile. Replacement tires now costless han one-fourth of a cent per ·mile over the 10-year life of ·th normal car. Kilmcd on location In New York, the progrnm was an actors' romp-- they seemed to have been given Iheir heads and performed wilh abandon all over the screen. It was also a photographer's field dny. The problems were primarily In Hie script which painted the characters into a corner from which there was no escape unless n cliche windup were resorted to or ;t leading character threw himself out of a . window. Since the entire effort was on the arty side, the windup was by (he window route. One of television's demands is that the living room viewers have someone to like and root for in an action show. There was IKI one in "The Dark Side." David Wayne played a whisky-sodden bum with ornate and unlovable flourishes as he tried to pass himself off as the long-lost father of a new mil- lionxrie. Robert Webber was such a vicious bad guy as a scheming private eye one could only regret he escaped punishment. And Wendell Burton, as the teen-aged, mother-domi- naled heir, was so weak that it came only as a mile! surprise that he was psychotic. CBS worked fast Tuesday after the news broke about the death of J. Edgar Hoover. The n e t w o r k news department pulled out tapes of a five-part report broadcast more than two years ago in its morning news show, pasted them together and threw in some updating commentary. The result, a rather chijly, hard-eyed evaluation of the FBI Mimoeries in 1 By J E R R Y B U C K HOLLYWOOD ( A P ) - The program heads of AUC nnd NBC say the future ot television lies in developing scries hat will run for only a specified number of shows'. The CBS iroyram chief disagrees. These so-called mini-series have already begun to lake root In such transplanted British shows ns "The Six Wives of Henry V I I I , " "Search for the Nile" nnd "The Forsyte Saga." S'ew projects nre u n d e r way. "I think this is going lo grow and grow because it not only gives the audience diversity but lencfils the producer because 16 has more' time lo do fewer shows," said Mori Werner, programming vice president of NBC. Werner appeared al a forum I'uesdiiy sponsored by the llol- ywood Radio Television Society, with Martin Starger of AUC and Fred Silvorman of CBS. Starger said, "Some material iemanris more than one show, but God knows five years stretches it beyond endurance." He said that in the coming season ABC would show (he 71.4- hour Russian-made "War and Peace" movie over four consecutive nights. Production begins in August for a five or six- hour dramatization ot Leon Uris' "QBVII."
