This analysis seemed to be borne out in an Interview with Moos in his office on the second floor of the East Wing of the White House. He has (n excellent view of the front lawn of the White House, edged with the iron picket fence and the always staring passersby. Scoffs at Term Moos took over his new chores last Sept. 1, just in time to work on Eisenhower's campaign speeches, he scoffs at the general term of "ghost writer" and says his main job is to follow out the president's ideas and thoughts. The president, he said, just does not have the time to do it all himself. Moos said Elsenhower gives him his basic ideas and later works over his speeches intensively after he receives the rough draft. Moos traveled with Eisenhower on the presidential plane, the Columbine, for the half dozen major speeches during the campaign. He had a mild complaint about the plane. Jost Lean Back "On ordinary commercial passenger planes," Moos smiled, 'you can just lean back and relax.

Asked what his reaction was when he heard the president make a speech for which he had sup- fled many of the phrases, Moos aid "obviously, you can't help but eel emotionally involved." He finds his job a "great ex- «rience—like taking a second °h.D. It is a very enriching experience."

Moos smiled ruefully when he said he entered into his first political debate in 1940 — with [umphrey on the other end. "I took Wendell Willkie (as my ubject) for the 30 minute debate nd Hubert Humphrey took FDR," doos said. "Humphrey took up the first 27 minutes and I ended up with the last three. It took me some time to recover from that. Moos' scholarly achievement is attested by the long list of books h« has written on politiral life, eilhet oa his own of with other scholars.

Parents Killed by Fire Fumes ALF GOBBLES A MEAL — This auto- mdtic letter facer stacks letters, scans them front and back for stamps, counts them and cancels them. GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP1- "Grandma, we can't wake up Mama or Daddy," the Her Majesty's Mail Is Automatic SOUTHAMPTON, England (NEA) — Having fathered the post office in 1657 and given the world its first gummed postage stamp in 1840, Britain now leads the world in postal automation, with the robot postman just around the corner. Actually, the machine has yet to be invented that can walk up Mrs. Oirie Aadema called her daughter Sunday. Mrs. Aadema called the sheriff's office.

The officers were met by the :ouple's daughters, Paula, 5, and Jan, 4. The girls said they had >een asleep hi another room. They said that they had tried to wake their parents but were unable to do so. Officers said" the girls were not overcome because the fumes were confined to the parents' room and had dissipated by the time the children entered. Paula and Jan were placed temporarily in their grandmother's are. a garden path to deliver a letter, but General Post Office engineers are working on the problem. At Dollis Hill outside London, where the Post Office has its experimental laboratories, the talk all of helicopters, rockets and Majesty's mail. As far back as 1D34 a German enthusiast experimented here with mail-carrying rockets, and Ernest Marples, the present Postmaster General, claims that the idea cannot be dismissed lightly. Marples goes on to predict that the day is not far distant when a letter posted in London at 8 a.m. will be delivered by rocket in Aberdeen, Scotland, at 11 a.m. Meanwhile in Southhampton, the post of call of the big trans-Atlan- tic liners, the latest in automated postal equipment is on view for the world to goggle at. In the past year postal representatives "of 28 countries have worn a path to the door of the Southampton post office, where Alt (short for Automatic Letter Facer) a three-ton giant, six feet tall and 20 feet long. Alf stacks letters, scans them front and back for stamps, faces them, counts them, then cancels their stamps He does everything but steam open their envelopes and reac them. But If Britain is counting on Alf to spare the postman his fallen arches, I would say that the postman, fiat feet and all, will be with us for many years to come. For Alf is high-strung and tern permental. "Alfie hates squares," the Southampton foreman confided to me, in explaining the machine's operation. I turned, half expecting o find the 20-foot leviathan twitching to the rhythms of rock- n' - roll. But no — the "squares" that Alie hates are square envelopes. These flummox the monster which s trained to grope for .the long edge of letters in order to face them with the stamps in the same corner. The Post Office now has a plan to standardize envelopes (there are 67 different sizes in current use). And not only squares, but Alfie hates color postcards. Inasmuch the machinery is being tested, in postcard is placed in his hopper. order to view the latest engineering marv.els. Showpiece at Southampton as Alfie's photo-electric eyes are highly sensitive to color, using this means to identify stamps, he goes quietly mad when a color .

Northwestern Bell Telephone Company By JERRY BENNETT WASHINGTON - (NEA)-Whe ther you should pass up that serv ing of thick sausage gravy in or der to stay alive is one of th questions that medical scientist hope to answer as they try to fin the exact cause of heart disease During recent years, fats hav been strongly suspected as the cause of atherosclerosis, the mos common form of hardening of th< arteries. Atherosclerosis is a disease tha causes fatty deposits to form in side the arteries. When these sub stances start to harden, they nar row an artery so that its ability to handle the flow of blood is destroyed or severely hampered. This condition often leads to the formation of a blood clot which can prove fatal if it takes place in vessels that nourish the heart or brain. The fatty material which often shows up in the largest amounts is a vital chemical called cholesterol which the body uses to make sex hormones. It's this evidence that's responsible for the indictment of some of your favorite foods and one of the biggest controversies to medical history. Many doctors believe that drastic changes should be made in the average American's diet. They base their beliefs on studies that show that fats increase the amount of cholesterol in the blood. To further support their arguments, they point to statistics 'that show a direct relationship between the consumption of fats and a country's heart attack rate. For instance, medical itvdJe* show that the average American gets about 45 per cent of bis calories from fati while a Japanese gets only 10 per cent. This dietary difference it probably responsible for Japan's heart attack rate being only one- fourth that of the U.S., these doctors gay. Laboratory experiments have re vealed that only certain types fats raise the cholesterol level o the blood. These are saturate faU which are derived from an; mals and appear in bacon grease, butter and milk. Other tests have shown that •maturated vegetable fats, like com oil, actually reduce the amount of blood cholesterol. That's why some specialists believe that people should substitute these products for animal fats whenever possible. They explain, however, that the vegetable products often lose their cholesterol lowering powers' when put through a special chemical process called hydrogenation which hardens them. This is the case of many of the household baking and frying ingredients. The Pitman-Moore Drug Company has developed a special non- hydrogenated margarine from corn oil which is sold only in drug stores. Recent hospital tests show that the special margarine, called Emdee, reduced the cholesterol levels of patients when it was substituted for regular ingredients in the preparation of their food. Many heart specialists, however, believe that it's still too early to recommend that healthy individuals shun animal fats to avoid heart disease. They explain that there are too many unexplained factors involved in coronary attacks to place all the blame on Sats. For Instance, they report that the people of Denmark, West Germany, the Netherlands, Nor. way and Sweden eat about the same amounts of fats at U.S. citizens. But the heart attack fatality rate of those countrlei is only half that of the U. S. These doctors also explain that cholesterol has never been proved to be the chemical ringleader in causing atherosclerosis and that stuff is dead," the foreman explained." "When you compress the air out of letters they become lifeless, and the machines don't get the proper feel of them." When Alfie was first unveiled he was unable to distinguish be tween the two-penny stamp on newspapers and other printed matter and the three-penny stamp of ordinary mail, but this difficulty has since been overcome. Post Office engineers expert mented for nearly two years be fore they hit upon a method of giving the two-penny stamp a special distinguishing characteristic. The solution finally arrived at was to print on the back of the two-penny stamp a graphited ine, which is easily detected by high voltage scanner. Nowhere else in the world but n Southampton, where Alfie is being tested, are graphited stamps on sale to the public. Electronic sorters are also in operation in Southampton. These enable a postman, sitting at a teyboard, to sort letters twice as ast as by hand and to break them down to three times as many se- ections. Forty-ei w -ht is the limit if the pigeon-holes a postman can 'each conveniently by hand, whereas the machine sorts to 144 elections.
