That is the reason that chemonucleoly­ sis is done in the operating room and not in the doctor's office.— By Erwin Di Cyan, Ph.D. The Diet Wttrii How to Keep Calories Low and Morale High A dieter sails along more confidently on a new regimen when morale is high—so avoid pitfalls that make morale sag. For instance: When you've eaten salty food that makes you drink more liquid than usual, skip weighing yourself the next day -salt retains water and you'll get discouraged when you see your increased weight.... After you start a new diet, take more walks, get more fresh air; you'll feel the morale-boosting effects of Increased blood circulation right away.. .. Turn your scales up two pounds so you'll know you're really two pounds lighter.... Keep a chocolate bar (or other fattening favorite) in the house on a table—right in plain sight. And don't eat it.

That's because the I Perry Meson deduced what science has recently proved. When university researchers ran four different "trials"'for defendants accused of killing a pedestrian while driving while intoxicated, they discovered the defendant's skin color made no difference. But his dress and grooming made considerable difference. The trials of two unattractive, untidy-looking defendants, one white and one black, both produced stiff sentences. The hirles deckled they were careless and heavy drinkers who deserved their punishment. The trials of the two neat, clean, conservatively dressed defendants, one white and one black, produced lighter sentences. As the lurtea saw H, the two attractive-looking defendants had probably suffered severe remorse and their accident was a one-time freak. —By Shirley Sloan Fader ROD McKUEN: "Unpleasant Facts About Unwanted Animals" "The public would be shocked if it knew how badly so many people treatanimals. People will go on a vacation and leave their pet in the street, with the expectation of just getting another when they return. Thousands of animals are put to death every day by so-called humane methods, which are actually painful. I've seen living animals tossed on trucks with dead ones, and I've even seen guys take a cat not yet dead and bash It against a wall." The indignation was pouring from Rod McKuen, poet, author, composer and concert artist, who has established a foundation to help promote more concern. "Something has to be done about the widooproed mistreatment, the underataffing of shelters and the inhumane ways of killing unwanted animals. I urge people to call the nearest humane society when they see cruelty to animals, to help stamp out such acts." -Interviewed by William Wolf' »k>hmaiisliip When Winds of Change Hit Your Office 'There are going to be changes made around here." When that word gets out in an office or factory, your first natural thought is, "How will it affect me?" Since you can't stop the change, learn some protective actions to make things easier for yourself. 1) Try to get some straight answers from your eupervteor. If his reply is, "We're going to retain you to work the new machines. You won't have a problem learning"—you'll have saved yourself quantities of anxiety. If his answer is, "I don't know anything about it," go to someone who is in a position to know. When, changes are planned in office procedure, don't just worry. Ask how the new methods will affect you. 2) Be careful whom you ask and to whom you listen. Learn to distinguish between facts from management and confusing rumors. 3) Guard against making change difficult for yourself because of negative thinking. Prejudging the new. system or machine as bad only makes it harder for you to learn and adjust. —By S. R. Radford 14 • FAMILY WEEKLY, JUM 23.1974
