Pull Up the Siege Guns Many years before he became president, the late Franklin D. Roosevelt was stricken and became the nation's most famous polio victim. Its crippling effects plagued him the rest of his life, most cruelly in his final, failing months. But because the spotlight shone »o brightly on him as a national figure, thousands of other polio victims benefited. He dramatized the aliment. With the organization of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis and the Warm Springs Foundation, Americans found outlets through which they could express their concern. Well-publicized fund drives, focused on Mr. Roosevelt's birthday, fattened the coffers for antipolio research. The painstaking effort that went into development and preparation of the celebrated Salk vaccine, with its promise of protection for millions, is a direct outgrowth of the interest thus generated. CONCEIVABLY, the same sort of thing might happen in the field of heart disease, now that Americans have seen their tremendously popular President, Dwight Eisenhower, laid low by this all too common affliction. Polio is an occasional killer, oftentimes a crippler, but altogether nothing like the menace of heart disease. In 1954 more than half of all deaths in America were caused by heart and circulatory ailments. As the President's case seems to suggest, present knowledge and wise care are sufficient today to offer the hope of fully or nearly full recovery to coun- tlesi of the afflicted. But the death toll neverless goes on, and much vital work needs to be done. Oddly, this No. 1 killer is not being combated with the volume of funds available to the polio reseachers. Hopeful • lines of inquiry are being cast out, but unless more oney comes in they cannot be pursued with full vigor. No one can say with any certainty that men of imagination and organizing talent will now appear to dramatize the President's illnes for the benefit of millions of heart sufferes. It could happen. But whether or not it does, th« average American who is deeply moved by Mr. Eisenhower's misfortune need not wait for the "March of Quarters," or whatever some enterprising men might decide to call a great push for heart re- tearch. The ball has already been started rolling by a number of newspapers over th« country. They've called for an outpouring of f«n«ro*itf on thi Pre»id«nt'« birth- day, Oct. 14. They suggest that "get well" cards be sent to Denver with donations to the fund of the American Heart Association enclosed. Shrinking Down the World It seems like only yesterday that we used to read those magazine pieces predicting a fantastic future when people would fly the ocean overnight to Europe and airports would echo with the call of distant place names: "London . .. Paris . . . Frankfurt. .. Rome. ... Cairo." Now these things are not merely commonplace, they are becoming staggering in their proportions. Worldwide air traffic today is 36 times the volume of prewar days. The governments and airlines of 60 lands have built '' a global air transport system embracing 3500 cities on every continent. Airlines span every ocean and even fly polar routes. This has not occurred by accident, though obviously aviation growth in the postwar era was inevitable, the plane manufactures and the airlines, especially \those in America, have been imaginative and enterprising in pioneering new aircraft, new techniques of flying and innovations designed to lure large numbers of people of moderate income into the use of air transport. What has happened thus far is remarkable enough. But with faster planes and even more devices in sight for spread the burden of payment, the years just ahead may be still more spectacular. VIEWS OF OTHERS Reo I Gone It is about time to clue you cats on the lang- usage of the teen-agers. And it tears us apart (a favorable reaction in teen talk) to be able to cite no less an authority than Town Journal magazine, which employed its facilities not long ago on a nation-wide survey of the lexicon of the high school set, "Hyper" is a fairly new one. It means more super than dooper and if you really want to be superlative you can go to "absotively glurpy." "Give me an eyeball" means "read this" and we hop.e you have and are. A "glue face" is one Who seldom smiles and is frequently applied to principals, losing coaches and others of the pedagogical world whose academic paths are anything but groovy. If you are an "archaic" — over 21 — it is possible that you are "square". But it is even worse to be a "cube" because then you're a square in three dimensions or definitely "3-D"! If you're a "sharp" dresser, however, it helps because if you try hard enough you may develop something that's absolutely "frantic". (Needless to say, sharp dressing in high school circles is something completely different from that of the adult world.) These, with the exception of time-honored "square", are a few of the newer exampels of Junior's instinct for self-expression and we are sure that as the Autumn develops there will be many more to add to the vocabulary. We trust thta as the list grows some kindly youth will (ill us in on it. When you're an archaic in 3-D it's , sometimes hard to stay abreast of the trend. — Arkansas Gaeztte. Industrialized Farming Vladimir M. Matshevitch, Soviet agricultural minister who recently toured farming areas in this country, told the New York Times he was not impressed by our family-size farms and that he looks forward to applying American factory techniques to Russia's big collective farms. Secretary of Agriculture Ezra T. Benson holds to the view, too, thnt small, "inefficient" farms must give way to large, mechanized farm operations. Industrialized farming is the end envisioned by both men, but the means to achieve the common end will be quite different, of course. The Russians will seek to achieve their objective through confiscation of land and the forced migration of peasants to collectivized farms. Low farm prices can speed the turn to industrialized farming in this country. — Lexington Herald.

COURIER NEWS 7Ties That Bind WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1988 SOVEREIGNTY Peter Edson's Washington Column — Diplomacy Double Talk; lone Couldnt Stop the Navy Brass By DOUGLAS LARSEM AXD KENNETH O. OILMORE NEA Staff Correspondents WASHINGTO N— (NEA) — There's a faction in the State Department pressuring for the U.S. to sever diplomatic reln'ions with either Austria or Australia. Here's one reason: The Austrian ambassador showed up for a previously arranged appointment only to be given the glad hand by an official who exclaimed, "How do you do, Sir Percy." The ambassador drew himself up to his six-feet-four and announced, "I am Dr. Karl Gruber, the ambassador of Austria, not Australia." Then he added: "Sir Percy Spender is the small one of us. He's five-eight." Several days later a coded cable came to the Australian embassy But after hours of work their experts couldn't decipher it to make sense. Finally someone discovered the cable should have been sent to the Austrian embassy. It was then rushed there with apologies—and assurances that the code hadn't been cracked. Try this on your old doubleboiler: Bouillabaise Marseilles made out of lobster, eel, shrimp, clams, scallops and oysters. Nicaragua!! Ambassador Don Guillerma Sevilla - Sacasa finally wormed the formula for it out of the chef at the Sheraton-Carlton Hotel the other night after a big reception there. In exchange, the ambassador promised to give the chef a ride in his new polka-dot helicopter which the embassy just purchased from Bell Helicopter for Nicaraguan President Antasio Somoza. Nobody knows why the polka- dots. Defense Secretary Charles Wilson had prepared himself a plate of shrimp, turkey, avacado salad, stuffed eggs, stuffed celery, roast beef, sliced tomatoes, garlic bread, potato salad, green olives, pickles and cold salmon at the reception for the new Air Force secretary Don Quarles, Seeing that Mr. Wilson's hands were full, his military aide offered to shake some salt on the plate. "Stop," warned Wilson, "That'll make it too heavy to hold." While he dove into this snack a \ British air officer moved over to i the former president General Mo! tors and told him he had a scheme for wrecking communism in China. "Just stop selling Cadillacs, Chevvys and Buicks to Americans and deliver them all to China. The new cars have so much power the peasants will all kill themselves off." Wilson grunted at that one, and after he had swallowed the shrimp he was gnawing on, he asked: When the Britisher said that he "Know the snob's definition of a square?" didn't, Wilson said: "Someone who has room in his car for more than two persons." Katie Louchelm, director of women's activities for the Democratic National Committee, rushed into the office of Chairman Paul Butler with the announcement that the Women's Democratic Club in St Petersburg. Pla., had formed a men's auxiliary, "Next thing you know." Butler replied, "we'll have to launch a male suffragette drive down there.'" It took more than the threat of hurricane lone to keep the top brass of the United States Navy away from their gigantic reception which launched the new TV series, "Navy Log." Top guests were Secretary of the Navy Charles Thomas and pen manufacturer Walter Schaeffer, a big shot in the Navy League. A huge scale model of the new aircraft carrier, the USS Forrestal, was surrounded by enough fancy food to sink a battleship. And at the bars enough liquid was being dispensed to float one. A slightly tipsy young lady went up to shaei'fer and inquired, "Will your pens write under champagne, too?" "You got the wrong pen, madam," he replied. "^line's the one that lasts a lifetime." One of the tourists going through the FBI the other morning pointed out a line of wet footprints along the corridor to the guide. Agents were panickly called in to try and find cause for the tracks. Photographs were taken and laboratory tests made. Ail to no avail. "The only thing we can figure," explained a puzzled agent, "is that a charwoman took off her shoes to rest her corns while mopping the floor." I T-V p Written for NEA Service the UOCtOr MyS — By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Osteoarthrltis or hypertrophic, arthritis is not really arthritis at all. The name implies that inilam-l matlon is present but this is rarely the case. Also, many people become unduly alarmed when they _re told that they have this condition because they are afraid that they may become seriously crippled. Osteonrthrltls is actually a mildi degeneration or wearing out of some of the structures which go to make the joints. It is a sort of aging of the joints which shows up first in those joints which do the most work, such as the knees, hips or fingers. The exact cause or causes ore not entirely understood. There may be an inherited factor. That is. the cartilage and bone of people in some families may be particularly susceptible to early degener-l ation or osteoarthritis. Repealed injury also seems to promote the development of this condition. Poor posture, disturbances of blood cir- dilation, and obesity are other conditions which are believed to contribute to its development. The end joints of the fingers frequently become enlarged. This i« o'ften accompanied by a certain amount of stiffness and soreness, though this usually disappears after the Joints have been loosened up. These enlargements, common in later years, are called Hebcr- den's nodes. The knees, shoulders, elbows and spine are other joints commonly involved. Sometimes degeneration may be pretty well advanced without producing any noticeable pain or stiffness. Ostconrthrills is oilcn found accidentally when an X-ray Is taken for something else. The treatment of degenerative changes In the Joints Includes general measures aimed «t relieving ttie discomfort and Improving mo general physical condition. Local mcMures designed to relieve the involved joints and prevent or correct any difficulties are also used Occupational strains shortd be eliminated whenever possible and bad posture should be corrected. Because so many people with osteoarthritis are overweight, reducing is often advisable. This is especially important if the knees are involved. If these joints have to carry 180 pounds when they are built to carry 130, they are obviously overworked. People With osteoarthritis are rarely .incapacitated and can usually move around freely, though often with some discomfort. They do need frequent rest periods as this seems to relieve some of the stiff feeling. The proper use of heat, massage or special supports depends on what Joints are involved, the age and physical condition ot the person and the severity of the condition. Osteoarthritii should be considered more M an ailment than a serious or dangerous disease. To some extent one who has these joint changes must learn to live with them a* comfortably as possible.

Even with all their drum-beating for forthcoming films, the first Warner Bros. Presents and the MOM Parade shows proved that movies are better than ever on TV too. NEXT MAJOR studio leaping into home screens is 20th Century- Pox Oct. 5 with-a -one-hour- tele- film of "Cavalcade," co-starring Merle Oberon and Michael Wilding, followed by Robert Wagner in "The Ox Bow Incident" and "Laura," with Robert Stack. George Sanders and Dana Wynter. An independent telefilm producer predicted recently that major movie studios would slough off their telefilms and load them with so much advertising they would not qualify as entertainment. AFTER VISITING the big sets of "Cavalcade" at Pox. and watching the Warner and MOM TV debuts, I see no cause for alarm IF the majors maintain the quality of their initial shows as Walt Disney has done. Even scenes from new movies can be more entertaining than panel shows, scratched 1931 films and cheap half-hour telefilms. Television Is forgetting the "sugar coating: on the bitter pill." The best commercial announcer a second round of trumps with dummy's queen. Then he once more abandoned the trumps. This time South turned his attention to hearts. He took the three top hearts, ending in his own hand with the queen. This would have been perfectly safe if each opponent held three hearts, since both defenders would have to follow suit. If that were the case, South would then draw the last trump and cash the 13th heart. As it happened, the hearts didn't break 4-2. South's last heart could not, therefore, be established. The only way South could avoid the loss of a trump trick was to leave a trump in dummy to ruff his last heart. This meant that South had to leave one trump out in the hand of a defender. Was it dangerous for South to leave one trump out? Of course it was. If the opponent with short hearts had the last trump, he would rufi the second or third heart and defeat the contract. In that case, however, the contract would be un- makable. The only hope - was that the hearts would be 3-3 or that the opponent with short hearts would have only two trumps. This was actually the case, and South was able to cash his three top hearts and ruff his last heart in dummy without running into trouble. He then got back to his hand by ruff- ing a diamond and was able to draw the last trump on the very last trick. of them all makes the chargt and ho should know. Don Wilson moved into TV with Jack Benny and they're not forgetting the «ugar coating for the sales pitch. Benny'a TV commercials with Don are M entertaining as they were on th« radio.
