MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1955 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINB [Housewife Seen As Key In. Curbing Overeating By FRANK CAKKY AP Science Reporter NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Doctors were urged today to "set your sights on the housewife" as a means of curbing overeating — and overweight — among the nation's people. '•It is she, to a large extent, who shapes the food habits and practices of the nation," declared Dr. W. H. Sebrell Jr., former director of the National Institutes of Health and now a research consultant for the American Cancer Society. "She buys and prepares the food, times the meal s and fixes the quantities of food to be served," he said in an address to the 28th annual scientific meeting of the American Heart Assn. Serious Health Hazard He said overweight "is one of the most serious health hazards of our times—at least 20 per cent, perhaps as many as 25 per cent, of all adults In this country today are overweight to an extent that may impair their health." And "all obesity," he declared flatly, "results from overeating— that is, eating more calories than are needed for energy." "There is a common notion that to be big is to be strong and healthy," he said. "It is this misguided view which causes mothers to provide an excess of food for their children, insist on its being eaten, and so, in some cases, develop habits of overeating which persist into adulthood." Sebrell said a lot of people erroneously place reliance on drugs as a means of reducing weight. "In the great majority of cases," he said, "these drugs—whether nonspecific fillers, appetite depressants or metabolic stimulators— have relatively little, and then only temporary, value since use of them tends to obscure the main problem, overeating. In any case, drugs should be used in obesity control only upon the advice of physicians." Cold Canadian Air Sends Merucry Skidding in Rockies Jailbird Bagged On Duck Hunt JACKSON, Mich. (/Pi—The Drake § brothers went duck hunting and bagged a Jailbird. Donald and Roland Drake were hunting seven miles from PeeK prison camp when they spotted a man crawling through a field.

Prewitt has resumed serving 5 to 15 years for armed robbery. Love Notes TOKYO (JP)—Russia may be trying to woo Japan by sea. Japanese police say sealed bottles with messages to the "dear Hokkaido people" have been washing up on the shore^of Hokkaido, Japan's nothern island. B THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The coldest air of the fall season pushed southward from Canada to center over the central Rockies today. The season's first zero reading was recorded at Fraser, Colo., site of President Eisenhower's favorite fishing and camping grounds. Below freezing readings early today reached from the Western Plains southward to the Texas Panhandle and eastward across the upper Mississippi and central Missouri valley regions. Light rain showers, generally less than a quarter of an inch, fell throughout the night over much of Illinois and Indiana and northward to the Great Lakes. Snow flurries touch parts of northern Wisconsin and Minnesota. At International Falls, Min., an inch ^of snow was on the ground. Elsewhere, the temperatures held seasonal. Readings in the 60s and low 70s covered a region westward from Alabama into southern Texas. Miami reported the morning's highest temperature, 78 degrees. Considerable warming took plaec in the northeastern section of the nation. Readings in the 50s were common early today over much of New England in marked contrast to yesterday morning when below freezing marks weree the rule rather than the exception. Readings of 60 covered an area from Ohio northeast into New York state. Lowe Blamed For Sickness OKLAHOMA CITY UP)— Love—or the lack of love—is often to blame when a person gets sick and wants to stay that way, a prominent psychiatrist said here yesterday. The psychiatrist, Dr. Theodore A. Watters of New Orleans, said a woman often will take advantage of illness to get attention from a "louse of a husband" who has neglected her. Dr. Watters will lecture at the Oklahoma City clinical conference which opens here today. Mailman Recovers PETERSBURG, Va. Lfi — Walter E. Cheely. a mail carrier, -lost^ a wallet containing $150.
