THURSDAY, JUNK 4, 1953 .BLYTHEVILLE (AHK.V COURIER NEWS Ike's TV S/iow Just Like 'Fireside Chat' By WARREN ROGERS JR. WASHINGTON (API — It was just as If the President of the United Statei and a quarter of his top herpers had paid you a visit to chat about the affairs o! state. Watching your television set, you •aw President Eisenhower in the first television broadcast from the White House. With him were four Cabinet members: Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare Hobby, Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey, Secretary of Agriculture Benson and Atty. Gen. Brown- til. First names were in order, as befits the easy informality of conversation in your living room. There were no typed speeches. Ths visitors talked mostly right at you, but occasionally their eyes flickered to one side. That was to see the big cue cards, which bore phrases like those an orator jots down for an off-the-cuff speech. "There are two ways to balance the budget," said one card. They also bore data to tell the talkers how they were keeping pace with the half-hour period of their visit via all the TV networks. Finished and Left Like good visitors—and good TV performers—-they finished, what they had to say and left. It was "right on the button," according to an aide to Ben Duffy, the advertising man whose firm donated its technical assistance. Two rehearsals had gone several minutes overtime. Duffy, exchanging congratulations in the midst of some 30 cameramen and technicians, wore a big smile. He had hovered outside camera range throughout the performance. "I think it was one of our best shows," he said. "I wasn't worried about timing. Rehearsals always run long." Cameras and Lights Looking into the conference room j from which the broadcast emanated—it is across from Eisenhower's office and is called the "Pish Bowl' 'because fish used to be kept there—all you really saw were the cameras and lights. They wfcre ranged in a semicircle close to the desk, chair and sofa occupied by the five stars. With the air-conditioning cut off because of its noise, the air was tight. There was a strong odor like that of hot paint—the odor, technicians said, of the TV lights. Perspiration darkened the shirt collars of the technicians. But Eisenhower and his supporting cast kept their cool look, thanks to pancake makeup. Outside the White House a big van—the directing truck—picked up the images from three TV : cameras, selected one and relayed " It out to the networks. Outside the conference room, sitting in his office and watching, his set while chain-smoking cigarettes, was James Hagerty, the presidential press secretary, who had told newsmen earlier: "It was my own idea." Tension Mounts As Election Day Nears in Italy ROME I/Pi — Italy today approached a crucial parliamentary election week end with mounting tension after the nation's first night of political violence in many weeks. Riot police patrolled Naples, scene of a bloody brawl last night between supporters of the pro-Fascist MSI faction and police during which 34 persons were hospitalized and 100 arrested. Elsewhere In the peninsula police were on guard to stop any new outbreaks. Forty MSI partisans were arrested last night In Rovlgo, North Italy, after they demonstrated against a police ban on a planned meeting. Only two days of campaigning were left until the nation chooses whether to stand with the moderate coalition of Premier Alcide de Gas- perl or to turn right or left.

BLAKESLEE AP Science Reporter NEW YORK tf>— A, safety test Strapless Gowns, Low Necklines Banned by School GARWOOD, N. J. (fl?)_Strapless gowns and plunging necklines may be st3-lish—but not for girls in the eighth grade, says the local board of education. The board warned yesterday against wearing such styles at the grade's June.^lS prom at Lincoln school. Robert Laird, school superintendent, asked the board to support his request for conservative dress at the affair. Laird said he had noticed several "daring" dresses at recent school dances. City Called, Wife Went MANILA (ff)—Country ]jf e j s no t for Myong Boon Mok, 19-year-old Korean war bride of a Filipino veteran of the Korean War. "I was lonely; I wanted to see a city again," said Myong. She fled the home of her husband, Ernesto Villamor, 22, in a rural area south of Manila. She showed up at the home ol a Manila relative of her husband. or cigarette smokers before they ake anesthetics for operations was recommended today to the American Medical Association contention. The test is to cough, to make iure the breathing airways are clear. Or, for heavy smokers, to keep coughing until they are clear. The test, and reason for it, were described by Dr. Barnett A. Greene and Dr. S. Berkowitz of Brooklyn. Smoking, and especially the inhaling of cigarette smoke, is main cause of bronchitis, .or inflammation of the breathing airways, they said. Smoking Is four to seven times more common cause of bronchitis Mian anything else, including various infections. The bronchitis can lead to numerous complications during or after taking of anesthetics, even those given by vein and not breathed n, like ether, Greene said. Sometimes, it can cause death, due to phlegm blocking the breathing tubes. Anyone smoking more than a pack of cigarettes a day is likely to have such bronchitis, the doctors said. Two packs a day is fairly sure to produce it. A Safety Measure The cough test is a safety measure. The airways are clear if the cough is a single event, not particularly easy to do. An abnormal cough is one which as selfppropa- gating leading to more coughs, either "wet" or "dry." Troubles ;an be avoided by asking patients •o cough, to make sure the airways are clear. Another- convention report tells of successful magnetic artificial eyes, for people who lose an eye. Artificial eyes look most normal if they move in step with the normal, real eye. The magnets to move artificial eyes look like a good answer, said Dr. Richard C. Troutman of New York Hospital- Cornell University. A magnet is placed in the eye socket after the diseased or damaged eye is removed. It is attached to the muscles which normally control the movements of the eyeball, in synchronization with the muscles of the opposite, good eye. _ j Moved by Muscles ! Later, the artificial eye is put in j place, with a magnet attached to | the back of the glass eye. It then \ moves in response to the eye mus- '• ClfiS. j Dr, Seymour J. Gray of Harvard Medical School suggested that stomach ulcers may be brought on, ; not by nervous stimulation, but | through hormones, j The stomach itself, he said, may j be a gland-like organ of the body, ] reacting to hormones just as do j other glands of the body. So, he explained, the hypothalamus gland in the brain, reacting to human emotions, such as worry may affect the pitutiary gland in the brain, which releases a hormone, ACTY, which prompts the adrenal glands, sitting over the kidneys, to produce adrenal hormones which perhaps affect the stomach. The stomach may be activated, to produce more acids and aepsin, wfcich are blamed for causing stomach ulcers.
