TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Philippines Girds for Hot Fight in Senatorial Race By DON HUTH MANILA (AP) — Filipinos, who love a rousing fight whether in the cock pit, ring or political'arena, are choosing sides in the hottest senatorial election campaign of the nine-year- old republic. At stake are the popularity of their flamboyant young.president, Ramon Magsaysay, the political climate during his next two years at the nation's helm and the warmth of U. S.-Philippine relations. Hordes of candidates are fight- ins for nine seats in the 24-man Senate. Senators fire elected nation wide. Balloting Is next Tuesday. With the campaign In Us seventh week, political arguments have been blamed for at least 12 deaths. Troops have been moved Into 13 potentially critical -provinces. The big fight swirls around Magsaysay's effort to bounce his severest foreign policy critic, Sen. Claro M. Recto. Won First Round Magsaysay won the first round. He seized firm control of the Na- cionalista party machinery In August and blocked Recto from the slate. Shut out in his own party, Recto breathed defiance, denounced Magsaysay as a dictator and found a berth as "guest candidate" on the ticket of the Liberals, the main opposition party. With nationwide balloting for senators, Magsaysay has to drive Recto all the way down below ninth place to keep him out of the Senate. The job is a big one—too big even for a president of Magsay say's immense popularity, most of his opponents and supporters agree. But Magsaysay bluntly announced he would stake his political future on the outcome. Too Close to U. S. Almost from the day Magsaysay took office, Recto stormed at him for cuddling too close to the U.S. foreign policy line. Magsaysay won on issues time after time. But Recto in his campaign has soft-pedaled foreign policy differences and attacked Magsaysay as a dictator. That has vote appeal. has won support in both major parties. If Recto is reelected, Magsaysay can expect stronger opposition in the next two years. With 12 holdovers in the Senate against none of the Liberals, the Nacionalistas are certain to maintain control. Observers predict they will win at least five of the nine contested seats. The Democratic party holds two seats and the Citizens party one. The Liberals as main chrjlenccrs echo Recto's charge of dictatorship. "GREEN TWIG" METAL The metal thallium gets its name from the Greek "thallos," which means "green twig."

Court Upholds Man for Refusing To Pay $28 for Fifth of Scotch BEVERLY HILLS, Calif, (ff) — A , New York sporting goods distributor —who went to jail rather than pay $28 for a fifth of scotch whiskey at Giro's night club—has been cleared of trying to defraud an inn keeper. "Justice has been done," said Richard T. Shubert after being found innocent yesterday by a municipal court jury. Herman "Hover, owner of the plush Sunset Strip bistro .took the verdict philosophically. "Well, that was that," said Hover, who made a citizen's, arrest of Shubert when the New Yorker balked last Sept. 13 at VA Tells of Pump Devised For Use in Heart Surgery WASHINGTON (ff»)—The Veterans Administration said today a simple pump which maintains blood circulation without use of the heart and lunge may soon be in use for cases of human heart surgery. The VA reported that more than 500 successful experimental heart surgery operations had been performed on animals with aid of the pump, which was developed at the VA hospital at Nashville, Tenn. Dr. Frank Gollan of the Nashville staff who, with associates, developed the pump, was said by the VA 10 have ''offered the scientifically-cautious admission that it may be used for human surgery in the near future." "What this little, inexpensive ma- chine actually does, is to bypass the heart and lunis, and yet maintain circulation of the blood after removing carbon dioxide and supplying new oxygen while heart and lungs are at rest," the VA said. "That leaves the heart available for surgery. And with the lungs collapsed, there is plenty of room for the surgeon to work."

THAT REMINDS US OF SOMETHING It smacks distinctly of the Fourt Annual Conference of State Dental Directors, with the Public Health Service and the Children's Bureau, held in Washington, D. C. ,in June 1951 ,from which we quote: "Dr. Leonard Scheele: I have just come back from the World Assembly .... The U. S. Delegation found a great resistance within the staff of the W.H.O with dental problems. We turned in a resolution .... Fortunately, it was passed .... funds will now rise in the course of the coming year to the grand level of about seven and a half-million dollars .... The door is now wide open .... Obviously one of the biggest things facing us is the catalyzing of a real national program of water fluoridalion . . . But your toughest job is going to be with the officials of the communities who hold the purse strings and run the cities. "Dr. Frank Bull: One thing that is a little hard to handle is the charge that fluoridation Is not needed . . . . First yoa «e«d a positive policy by your slate dental society and your stale board of health .... You have got to get a policy that says 'Do it I' You have got to go to the public and say'Do Something, or don't do something', and make it emphatic .... otherwise they wouldn't need public health people. WHAT ARE WE HERE FOR? . . . . We have told the public it works, so we cannot go back on that You have got to keep this thing before them and you have got to make it look important enough so you can have it on the state level .... Where th« dentists do not seem interested, don't let that stymi« you .... You can build a fire under th» dentists. THAT IS PROMOTIONAL WORK .... ARRANGE FOR THE PTA or some other group lo ASK FOR SOME OF US TO COME IN AND TALK ABOUT FLUORIDATION .... Let me tell you THE PTA IS A HONEY WHEN IT COMES TO FLUORIDATION. Give Ihem all you have got .... If you can, — I say IF YOU CAN . . . KEEP FLUORIDATION FROM GOING TO A RFEREN- DUM "Herschel V. Nisonger: Adults can learn. Human behavior can b« changed through education .... We have not explored all the vari- (SEE RIGHT COLUMN) oui methods, especially the thinking, IN TERMS OF THE METHOD THAT WOULD BE MOST EFFECTIVE for the particular results that we desire. "Dr. Arthur C. Bushel: We hav» reached the state . . . where w» go in for more and more complicated definitions of public health .... If the state health department wants to engage in a .... program, they have to look at the definition of public health, and if that definition doesn't cover (such a) program, they have to embroider the definition a litlle bil and make it a little more complicated, and then it's justified." "We're going to ^ve the public what It wants If we have to •p*nd ten million dollars making them want it'." tion of fluoridation of the population of this free country. So I have "embroidered" this cartoon a little bit, with the propagandists' own words. The cap- lion is mosl applicable to the policy of the Public Health Service and its subsidiary and "subservient" agencies in promoting and financing the compulsory mass medica- Edward L. Bernays, former public relations expert of Oscar Ewing, goes slill furlher: "The conscious and inlelligenl manipulalion of the organized habits and opinions of the masses must be done by experts, the public relalions counsels; they are the invisiible rulers who control the destinies of millions ... the mosl direct way to reach the mind of the HERD is through its leaders. For, if the group leaders accept our ideas, the groups they dominate will respond . . . Indoctrination must be subtle. It should be worked into (he everyday life of the people — 24 hours a day — in hundreds of ways. Public health offi-cers cannol afford the professional modesty professed by physicians. A redefinition of ethics is necessary." . . . AND, "THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE PROPAGANDA NEED NOT NECESSARILY BE TRUE." The foregoing is a reprint from The Christian Science Monitor, Dec. 17, 1954. We give you a little more of Dr. Bull's instructions to the yes-boys: | j We never use the term 'Artificial fluoivdation*. There is something about that term that means phoney—we call it "controlled fluoridation." — "We never had any 'experiments' in Wisconsin. To lake a city of 100,000 and say, "We are going to experiment on you, and if you survive we will learn something", — that is kind of rough treatment on the public. — In Wisconsin, We set up 'demonstration'. Dr. Bull continues: "I notice Dr. Bain used the term "addingsodium fluoride". We never do thai, that is RAT POISON. — All of these things give the opposition something to pick up, and they have got enough to pick at withoul our giving more. — Bui this toxicily question is a difficult one. I can't give you an answer lo it. I can prove lo you that we do not know the answer lo thai one." "Sure fluoridation is wasteful, just as a lot of things we do are wasteful. You are going lo fluoridate 175 gallons per capita daily, and drink a quart or a quarl and a half." Remember il is our money being wasted. Our U.S. Public Health Service was opposed to fluoridation prior to 1951, until Oscar Ewing got the idea (his fad would sell a lot of by-product for his law firm's clients. So Dr. Bull gives us this: "One thing thing thai is a lillle hard to handle is the charge thai flunridation is not needed. They talk of other methods, and when (hey gel through adding up all the percentage of (Tooth) decay thai we can reduce by such methods, we end up in a minus. When they take us at our own word, they make awful liars of us." We wish you could read the 157 page transcript of this secret meeting. Dr. Bull is refreshingly frank, but I think truthful. Club members would not f.ecl complimented at his plan for taking them in as as easy marks. COMMITTEE AGAINST FLUORIDATION Frank C. Douglas, Chairman
