By IRVING DESFOR AP Newsfeatures We're all pretty much aware that the instant picture system is a revolutionary photographic miracle which produces a black-and-white or color photo in seconds or minutes without darkroom manipulation. Remarkable as it it, however, the miracle has a drawback f* many photographers.. .there is no negative! An immediate one-of-a-kind picture is satisfactory to many picture takers but there are many other photographers who require duplicate prints or enlargements they can make themselves. A step forward toward correcting that drawback was displayed recently at a New •York press meeting. We were given a demonstration of a new Polaroid pack film which produces not only high quality black-and-white prints but also developed usable negatives in 30 seconds. The pack, called type 105 Positive-Negative Land Film, makes eight prints and negatives, each 3^x4U inches. The film achieves its usable negative ability because it has a back coating which protects it from fogging even in bright light. However, that back coating must be removed and the negative must be washed and dried before it can be used as a permanent or normal negative for duplicate prints or enlarging. Polaroid has figured out a technique so that Ute film can be used almost anywhere with the purpose of preserving the negative. It requires a small bucket containing a 12 per cent sodium sulfite solution. The items are available when the new pack film is purchased. After a picture is taken on type 105 film, it is removed from the film pack and the print is peeled away from die negative in 30 seconds. The negative is then placed in the solution in the bucket which causes that back coating to pucker and fall away and clears the developer residue on the emulsion side in a matter of minutes. When the negative has cleared, it can be removed, washed and dried, or it can Reshape MILK There's a whole new world to live In and milk can help supply the drive. If you're re-shaping your figure to keep in tune with the modern generation, plan your diet carefully so when you lose pounds, you gain lasting energy . . . include plenty of Cass Clay 99 per cent fat free low fat milk. 'THE FINEST IN DA/RY PRODUCTS' remain in the sodium sulfite solution for up to three days without damage. The washing and drying of the negative is then a matter to suit the photographer's convenience. The backet is a small, portable, negative-clearing tank made out of durable plastic material with a snap-on cover and a carrying handle. It contains a removable inset with slots to hold eight negatives to prevent scratch marks. The tank comes with a premeasured supply of sodium sulfite powder to make the initial 12 per cent solution. The solution will take care of a dozen film packs or about 100 negatives. Sodium sulfite can be obtained at photo chemical supply houses and will be supplied with each purchase of three 105 film packs. As I said, this is a step forward toward securing a permanent negative along with the instant positive print. It isn't as easy as getting the black-and- white print but it isn't as involved as the complete darkroom processing procedure necessary in securing normal negatives. Many photographers will undoubtedly find that acquiring a usable negative is worth the trouble involved. Prints that we saw made with the new film showed wide tonal range with no discernible grain in 11 by 14 enlargements. The negative emulsions are coated on tough 4-mil polyester base for dimensional stabilty and quick drying, officials said. The new 185 packs have an ASA 75 film speed with drop-in convenience for use in almost any camera presently equipped for, or with, a Polaroid film pack back. That makes it applicable for a wide variety of educational, industrial, scientific, professional and amateur uses. However, to make greater use of the new 105 P-N film, two other new products are being introduced currently. One is a nonautomatic 195 Land camera which uses not only the new film pack but also type 108 Polacolor and type 107 high- speed black-and-white film. The camera has lens openings from f-3.8 down to f-64 and 10 manually adjusted shutter speeds from 1-500 down to 1 second plus a "B" setting for time exposures. The between- the-lens shutter is synchronized for both flashbulbs and electronic flash. The other new item is a lightweight 405 pack film holder which fits most 4 by 5-inch cameras and accepts all three 3V4 by 4Vi instant pack films. It comes with an acetate template for composing a 3V4 by 4V< image on a 4 by 5 groundglass. EVERYTHING GOES UP, MORTGAGES LESS WASHINGTON (AP) Mortgage rates may be the best buy when it comes to purchasing a home. A house that sold for $35,300 in 1972 was selling for $40,900 in 1973 — a jump of 16 per cent in one year. During the same period, there was only a 10 per cent increase in new conventional home mortgage rates, the American Bankers Assn. reports. The cost of land represents the biggest increase in home costs. While lots sizes shrank between 1967 and 1973, land prices rose 13.4 per cent year. The average lot size for a home in 1967 was 8,202 square feet. In 1973, the average lot was only 6,900 square feet. Food for Though Questions and answers By JEAN MAYER Professor of Nutrition, HarVard University Caffeine warning issued Q. I have read in your column that potatoes are a good food, even for dieters. But are potatoes really nutritionally important? A. The potato has unfortunately been the victim of "bad press." For years, dieters have been led to believe that potatoes contained lots of calories and little else. This is simply not true. Historically, potatoes have played an important role in the nutritional well-being of whole population groups. For example, the introduction of the potato from the New World to Europe was responsible for the disappearance of scurvy (severe ascorbic acid deficiency) in countries where it became a dietary staple. When there were disastrous failures of the potato crop, scurvy reappeared. Today, most of us do not depend so heavily on potatoes for Vitamin C. But a medium potato, boiled in the -skin, provides about one-third of the day's Vitamin C needs. In addition, the same medium potato (that's a little over two inches in diameter) contains only about 95 calories, yet supplies a small amount of good quality protein. It also contains enough iron to provide 4 per cent of an adult woman's daily needs, as well as substantial amounts of thiamin and riboflavin. Moreover, it provides appreciable amounts of a number of trace minerals. That certainly is an impressive scorecard for the lowly spud! It's true that potatoes can be fattening — if you eat too many of them, or if you serve them with too much fat. If you can enjoy potatoes plain, so much the better. If not, try to keep the extra calories at a minimum. Mash them with milk, rather than with milk and butter or margarine. And serve yogurt and chives, rather than sour cream as a dressing. The important point is that you can — and should — eat potatoes often, even if you are trying to lose weight. Just remember to leave fried potatoes for those lucky few who can get away with the extra calories. Buckwheat grouts are usually available in the specialty section of the market and are popular in Eastern European cuisine. Cooked with water or broth into a dish called kasha, they have a nut-like flavor and may be served as cereal or in soup. Grouts are also mixed with other foods such as noodles, and served ir place of potato. Q. After a busy week filled with activities, on Saturday morning my children enjoy sitting quietly and watching the cartoons on television for a couple of hours. As a result of all the food advertising, they are constantly after me to buy products I don't want them to have. Is anything being done to make television commercials aimed at children more reasonable? A. Some relief is in sight. The Television Code Review Board of the National Association of Broadcasters has recently announced revised code policies covering ads for snacks, candies and breakfast cereals aimed at children. The new policies contain three major provisions. First, advertising of snacks, candies, gum and soft drinks to children will not be allowed to suggest or recommend "indiscriminate and-or immoderate use" of the products. Second, "each commercial for breakfast-type products shall include one audio reference to and one video depiction of the role of the product within the framework of a balanced regimen." And finally, television ads aimed at children will not "direct children to purchase or ask a parent or other adult to buy the product for them." If you would like to contact the group that has been working on problems in food advertising for children, write to ACT (Action for Children's Television) 46 Austin Street, Newtonville, Mass. 02160. By ALTON BLAKESLEE AP Science Editor DETROIT (AP) - Unrecognized "coffee nerves" could lead you to a psychiatrist and months of useless treatment with calm-down drugs, a psychiatrist said today. Too much caffeine in coffee, tea or cola drinks can bring on all the symptoms of an anxiety state, said Dr. John P. Greden of Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital in Washington, D.C. Drugs can help in true anxiety states but may not work against the effects of too much caffeine, he said. Doctors should routinely ask patients about their caffeine intake, Greden suggested to the American Psychiatric Association. Over-doses of caffeine can bring such symptoms as ner- vousness, irritability, trcmu- lousness, occasional muscle twitching, sensory disturbances, attacks of diarrhea, insomnia, irregular heartbeat, drop in blood pressure and even circulatory failures, he said. A doctor could interpret it all as an anxiety attack. Greden told of reviewing records of 100 psychiatric patients, 42 diagnosed as having anxiety, with no question ever haying been asked about caffeine consumption. He cited a new case of a woman, 27, suffering attacks of headache, lightheadedness, tremulousness, and irregular heartbeat two or three times daily. The symptoms developed over a three-week period. Rejecting a diagnosis of anxiety reaction to something in Health overcharge totals disclosed Q. Your recent article about the relationship between a high fiber diet and diseases of the bowel has had quite an impact on our eating habits. I'm wondering about buckwheat cereals and pancakes. Are these high in fiber? A. Generally, no. In fact buckwheat is not even a true cereal grain. Cereals are seeds of the grass family, but buckwheat seeds come from an herbaceous plant. Because the seeds do contain a glutenous substance and can be made into flour, buckwheat is commonly considered a grain product. Most buckwheat flour, however, is highly refined and contains little fiber and, like white flour, unless it is enriched, it contains few nutrients. On the other hand, whole buckwheat, or groats as it is also called, is a hulled seed which is broken into fragments. These groats do, indeed, contain substantial amounts ol fiber and, in addition, are a good source of B vitamins, particularly niacin, and contain some calcium and iron as well. SALE!

(AP) - An audit of St. Louis County books has turned up overcharges totaling $5,555 by doctors, dentists and pharmacists, State Auditor Holland F. Hatfield said today, The county is collecting refunds on the overpayments, made under the Medical Assistance Program. Hatfield said St. Ix)uis County has adopted new procedures to check bills for medical services prior to paving them. Overpayments listed by Hatfield were $1,800 to Neary Drug of Floodwwd, $1,398 to Gilson Drug Co., Virginia; $944 to Dr. P.S. Rudie and Associates, Duluth, and $414 to Dr. M.L. Smalley, a Duluth dentist. Hatfield said overpayments to the pharmacies resulted from their use of a pricing schedule higher than one allowed by the state Welfare Department. The druggists agreed to make refunds and adopted the proper schedule of fees for drugs sold to welfare clients. Overpayments to Dr. Rudie resulted from duplicate billings. Hatfield said Dr. Smalley was paid for "excessive services" to dental patients. The audit also disclosed a shortage of $225 in the Virginia office of the County Planning and Zoning Department. Hatfield said fees collected from April to October 1972 exceeded the amount deposited in the county bank account by $225. There was no explanation of the shortage, Hatfield said. As state auditor, Hatfield is responsible for regular audits of local governments throughout the slate. The St. Louis County audit covered the years 1971 and 1972. her life, she did her own detective work, tracing the symptoms back to her purchase of a fresh-drip coffee pot. "Because this coffee was 'so much better,' she had begun consuming an average of 10-12 cups of strong, black coffee per day, more than 1,000 milligrams of caffeine." That's four times the 250 milligrams considered a large dose. When she reduced coffee Consumption to normal, her symptoms disappeared. An Army officer took calm- down drugs for 14 months without effect. His dizziness, "butterflies in the stomach," diarrhea and other complaints went away when he cut back from consumption of as many as 14 cups of coffee daily, interspersed with three or four cola drinks. He had been consuming 1,200 milligrams of caffeine daily. "Three cups of coffee, two over-the-counter headache tablets, and a cola drink consumed in one morning approximates 500 milligrams of caffeine intake," said Greden. Many Americans exceed that.
