Meaning of Veterans Day Celebration By William J. Scherle (7Hi District Congressman) It is all too easy for custom and the passage of time to dim the significance of tradition. Over half a century ago, Armistice Day, November 11. was declared a day to honor the dead heroes of World War I. Our obligations and our struggles to meet them honorably have multiplied since the end of that "war to end all wars". We have learned that the defense of freedom is a never- ending task. It requires us to remain strong and vigilant and to be unstinting of our sacrifices. The rights of free men, though hallowed in American tradition and assumed unthinkingly by us as part of our daily lives, are guaranteed in perpetuity by nothing except our own unflagging efforts. Veterans' Day, then, should serve to remind us not only of the heroes of our past history, but also of the as yet unheralded acts of heroism which the future will demand of us. Last week, a landmark decision was handed down by a Federal judge which threatens the investigative prerogatives of Congressional committees. If upheld by the Court of Appeals, it could hamstring the effectiveness of Congressional investigations and severely curtail the right of the people to know. U. S. District Court Judge Gerhard Gesell issued a permanent injunction barring official government publication or distribution of a report by the House Internal Security Committee listing the names and political affiliations of certain radical campus speakers. The judge reasoned that the report served no direct legislative purpose and concluded that its primary intent was to inhibit the free speech of the persons named. As such, he argued, it represents an unwarranted extension of Congressional powers to the point of infringing upon the rights of individuals. Tlmet Herald, Carroll, la.

Moreover, such speaking appearances are not only revenue- nroducing but afford a forum for expanding the radicalization process. In consequence, the Committee believed that the Migraine Plays Hob With Social, Home Life— Five Million Britons Know How Margaret Feels In addition, Committee's dangerously he warned, the action bordered on government American public had the right to know the extent to which campus speaking engagements promote the cause of revolution. In particular, it wished to alert college administrators to the implications involved in allowing such speakers to appear on their campuses. Contrary to the opinion of some misinformed wizards, the ruling of the court did not apply, and was never intended to apply, to members of Congress. The courts have no jurisdiction over official public statements made by Congressmen. A Congressman would be fully within his legal rights in publishing the list. The court's intention appears to be to limit the access of Congressional committees to channels of public communication. Thus the Government Printing Office was enjoined from publishing the Committee's report. This decision, while it may not effectively silence members of the Committee, therefore, could be the beginning of a precedent- setting trend to restrict the in- vesigative functions of Congress to the narrowest possible interpretation and to limit the people's right to know the results of Congressional investigations conducted on their behalf. The Court of Appeals should reverse this dangerous and unconstitutional decision. Under our form of government, the three branches are equal. The Judiciary cannot "stromple" (stomp, tromp or trample) the rights of Congress. At the close of each academic year, a limited number of summer jobs with the federal government become available. While many government agencies offer a wide variety of summer employment, the actual number of jobs involved is very small. There is diversity, in other words, but not abundance of opportunity. Jobs are open at many dif- By TOM CULLEN LONDON (NBA) — Princess Margaret is probably the most distinguished of the five million Britons who suffer from migraine headaches. Migraine has, in fact, played hell with the princess' social and home life. For example, she can never be sure when she makes an engagement that she will feel well enough to keep it. Yet when she is forced to cancel an engagement people say that she is unpredictable, flighty. Along with other migraine sufferers, the princess Is forced to watch her diet. Such foods as chocolate, cheese, oranges and herring contain tyramine, a substance which precipitates headaches. The Queen's sister must watch her driving, too. Dur- ing migraine attacks she cannot drive a ear at all, for her vision is inclined to blur. At home, Princess Margaret risks misunderstanding, as do all victims of migraine, her two children — Viscount Linley, 9, and Lady Sarah Armstrong- Jones, 6 — cannot comprehend why "mummy" must lie quietly in a darkened room when she feels one of her attacks coming on. All of these factors explain why Princess Margaret has become patroness of the Migraine Trust and why she takes a lively, personal interest in the City Migraine Clinic, which the trust has opened in the heart of London's financial district. The City Migraine Clinic is, in fact, the world's first to be devoted exclusively to a study of the complaint which afflicts 5 per cent of mankind. Since opening its doors in May the clinic has been literally swamped by sufferers, both office workers and executive types, from nearby buildings. Of the 814 patients treated in its six months of operation, 648 have come back a second time, and there is now a three-week waiting list of cases seeking treatment. The Egyptians knew about migraine in 3000 B.C. The Greeks had a word for it, "hemicrania," meaning half- headache, for migraine tends to attack one side of the head. Yet, despite its prevalence through the ages, almost nothing is known about the causes of this complaint or its possible cure. Migraine differs from ordinary headache. It is a blinding pain that can last several days and is often accom- panied by nausea and vomiting. During attacks some people see flashing lights, or red commas darting before their eyes. "Uptight" people get migraine more often than people who are not, so rigid in their behavior. The typical victim, the City Migraine Clinic claims, is to be found in a position of trust, either as secretary, personal assistant, or chief cashier, in a big corporation. He or she is punctual, efficient, conscientious, a bit of a perfectionist. Not all migraine sufferers fall into this pattern, however. General Grant was no uptight man. Neither was Admiral Nelson, the hero of the Battle of Trafalgar. Thomas Jefferson, Rudyard Kipling, Bernard Shaw and Sigmund Freud cannot be de- scribed as conformist types. Yet all of these suffered from migraine during their lifetime. "The advantage of operating a migraine clinic," explains Dr. Marcia Wilkinson, the consultant in charge, "is that we are able to examine patients while they are actually undergoing an attack of migraine. "Heretofore, in order to study the complaint, we have had to induce attacks by artificial means, such as injecting tyra- mine." By taking blood and urine samples of patients who are in the throes of a migraine attack. Dr. Wilkinson and two assisting doctors hope to discover the biochemical changes that take place. The influence of heredity, diet and such psychological factors as worry, excitement and depression are also be- ing studied at the City Migraine Clinic. In addition, patients are given a thorough medical checkup to find out if the migraine is masking some other disease. What relief can migraine sufferers look forward to? The City Migraine Clinic has had very promising results with a drug called Clonidine, which helps about a third of the patients. Dilation or distcntion of blood vessels is a factor in migraine. By constricting the flow of blood to the head, Clonidine relieves this condition. Ergotamine drugs, which can be taken orally, by injection or simply inhaled, also help but cannot be given to pregnant women. Meanwhile, the humble aspirin is not to be sniffed at. meddling with academic freedom. In actuality, the Committee's objective was to determine whether or not fees paid to campus speakers amounted to a significant source of financing for revolutionary groups. William Kunstler, lawyer for the "Chicago Seven", was publicly stated that speaking engagements are the prime means of financing sequently such causes. Con- the Committee determined to investigate the truth of his claim. A survey was taken in which close to a hundred colleges participated voluntarily. The survey revealed that most of our campuses are exposing students — whereever the administration of the institution is directly involved — to a wide- ranging variety Where student of speakers. organizations autonomously sponsor the speakers, radical leftist orators predominated. Frequently in these cases, the amount of the speaker's fee is unknown because the college administration requires no accounting for the expenditure of separate student funds. From those records which are available, however, one can infer that the amounts involved are considerable. The Committee concluded that the campus speaking circuit An International Sign of Goodwill Phone 792-3609 ferent Civil Service grade levels, and the requirements vary according to the nature of the assignment. There are openings for everything from laborers to lawyers and from clerks to chemists. They are available in various locations around the country, but most are naturally concentrated in the Washington, D. C. area. Some jobs require applicants to be tested, while others do not. But almost all government agencies require early application. Anyone who is seriously interested in summer employment with the federal government should apply very early in the calendar year in order to receive maximum consideration. It is also recommended that applicants specify the position and agency desired. Detailed information on the agencies participating, the positions available and the qualifications necessary for each is summarized in Announcement No. 414, "Summer Jobs in Federal Agencies".

The 1970 Nobel P««ce Prlit was recently awarded to Dr. Norman Ernest Borlaug, an American agricultural scientist and one of the finest scions of Iowa. One might wonder why a prize for peace should be given to a man who developed high-yield wheat strains. But on reflection, the award seems highly appropriate. It is well- known that the underdeveloped nations of the "Third World" are vulnerable to Communist propaganda. Their starving masses are more susceptible to subversion by the empty promises of revolution than are the more affluent and sophisticated societies of the West. Any contribution to the agricultural technology of the poorer countries, therefore, is not only an act of humanitarianism but positive reinforcement to the hope of peace in the world. Iowa and America can be proud o! Dr. Borlaug. PRESCRIBED WHISKY EDINBURGH, Scotland <AP) — Doctors here have prescribed whisky in the treatment of strokes.
