More newspapers call for President to resign Speed limit fJHH DfODOSeS food pf Of) is ignored • ' • r r r By Tie Associated Frew Three newspapers that supported President Nixon in 1966 and 1972 have editorials in Friday's issues calling for his resignation or impeachment. The positions taken by the Los Angeles Times, Cleveland Plain Dealer and the Kansas City Times follow by one day a similar call by the Chicago Tribune, which also had been a Nixon supporter. Also, the Nashville Tennes- sean said in its Friday editions that Nixon should resign from office. The Tennessean, which supported the 1972 presidential bid of Sen. George McGovern, D- S.D., said "President Nixon must be painfully aware that he has lost the most desperate and dangerous gamble of his political career." The Tennessean referred to Nixon's decision "to defy subpoenas for tape recordings and to submit edited transcripts of some tapes instead, in hopes that this move would establish his innocence in the public mind." "Resignation would be the honorable course for President Richard Nixon," the Tennes- sean editorial concluded. The Los Angeles Times said the transcripts "contain presumptive evidence of at least one impeachable offense—the obstruction of justice. The newspaper said nothing less than impeachment by the House and trial by the Senate could determine the President's fitness to continue in office. "Standing alone, the transcript of March 21,1973, would appear to justify Mr. Nixon's removal from office under even the narrowest definition of an impeachable offense —the commission of an indictable crime," the California newspaper said. The Plain Dealer said "The President has gone too far. The transcripts of White House conversations clearly involve him in a coverup, to say the least. That and his refusal to comply with the subpoenas of the Watergate special prosecutor and the House Judiciary Committee have virtually assured that impeachment of President Nixon will become reality," The Plain Dealer said. "The facts of the matter now show that no other course is possible," the Ohio newspaper said. The Kansas City Times said "The American Constitution ... is reflective of the hopes and ideal of mankind for justice and truth and a good life ... "Can such values really be reconciled with the sleazy dialogues now emerging in the White House transcripts? Can the end product of the men who gathered nearly two centuries ago to frame the Constitution be a bank of knaves who talk of advantage, revenge and adroit maneuver and never of what is right or wrong, or what is good for the country?" The Kansas City Times said Nixon scored s"ccesses in foreign policy but "now must ask himself whether his continued presence in office might not destroy these great achievements." ignored BURNSVILLE, Minn, (AP) - Many truck drivers are ignoring the 55 mile per hour speed limit according to a Minnesota State Automobile Association spokesman. "In the past few weeks motorists all over the state have noticed large, over-the-road trucks exceeding the speed limit of 55 miles an hour," said association executive vice president Arthur C. Tomlinson. "There is no reason why truckers should consider themselves above sharing some of the sacraf ices we have all come to accept." Tomlinson said many Minnesotans -are driving less and taking shorter trips. Farm Falls (Mi.) tana! Friday, Hay 10, 1974 To Your Good Health By Dr. George C. Thosteson MEDICATION HELPS SON'S HIVES Dear Dr. Thosteson: My son has hives to an extreme degree. For some months he has been taking Benadryl and finds it relieves him for about three hours and then the hives come back. Would taking the medicine that often hurt him? What type of doctor do you suggest who could help find the reason rather than just give nun temporary relief?—Mrs. M.A.B. The Benadryl — an antihistamine — is well known as giving relief from • allergy,. problems, which is what hives is. The outstanding drawback to frequent and repeated use is that it will make him drowsy. You don't mention his age, but if he's a schoolboy, the drowsiness is going to bother him. If he's old enough to drive, then he certainly shouldn't do so with that medication. You are quite right in wanting to find the cause rather than temporary relief. Whether the hives come from something he eats, or breathes, or touches, the heart of the problem is to find out exactly what thing — or things — causes the reaction. And the doctor to investigate that vital question is an allergist Dear Dr. Thosteson: Could you explain to me what colon trouble is and what are the symptoms?—T.M. Not in any brief discussion because there are all sorts of "colon trouble," ranging from mucus colitis to diverticulosis to irritable colon. So I'd suggest you send for my booklet, "Colitis and Kindred Complaints," which discusses the various types of trouble. Send 25 cents and a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope to me in care of The Fergus Journal for a copy. Dear Dr. Thosteson: Would you discuss "keloiding." For many years I have wondered exactly what it is and why it occurs in some people and not others. Should people who keloid have their ears pierced? If not, why not?-M.G. Not that I haven't discussed this before — but a keloid is an overgrowth of scar tissue after a wound or incision. The scar gets thicker and hence more prominent. Why this occurs to some and not others is not known, but ketoids are more common in f oiks with dark skin — by which I do not mean black, although black people do indeed have more keloids than those with light skins. I've warned keloid - formers to avoid ear piercing because a thickened scar can be more noticeable and in many instances can close the aperture after it has been made. Dear Dr. Thosteson: Is it necessary that healthy people should have vitamin B-12 injections once a week or as frequently as once a month? I believe it to be more a form of habit than necessity. -Mrs. W.D. I'll pass that question unless I have some solid evidence that the person is, indeed, "healthy." I have in mind such possibilities as a patient with pernicious anemia who may appear to be healthy, kept so by B-12, but who would die without periodic B-12. Dear Dr. Thosteson: Is it possible for a female to have some type of surgery to shrink the walls of the vagina or in some way make the vagina smaller? I am in my 40s, have had several children. Yes, it is possible, and has been done many tunes. You should consult a gynecologist about it. How to get rid of leg cramps and foot pains? The answer may be simple. Write to Dr. -Thosteson in care of this newspaper for a copy of the booklet, "How To Stop Leg Cramps and Foot Pains," enclosing a long, self-addressed (use zip code), stamped envelope and 25c in coin to cover cost of printing and handling. Dr. Thosteson welcomes all mail from his readers, but because of the great volume received daily he is unable to answer individual letters. Readers' questions are incorporated in his column whenever possible. In County Court Fergus Falls Police have charged four persons with speeding. All forfeited bond.

Humphrey said Thursday he and his Senate colleagues will soon introduce a "World Food Action" resolution urging President Nixon to expand food aid immediately to the developing countries. The Minnesota Democrat noted in his remarks at a food and energy conference that a world food meeting is scheduled for November in Rome. But he said Nixon should act now under existing legislation because "time is running out for millions." He said his three-year program calls for the United States to offer the poorest countries food worth $3 billion, with easy terms granted for the difference between current prices and those of mid-1972. The special payment arrangement would be conditional on food surplus countries like Canada and Australia making similar offers and on oil-exporting countries taking "reciprocal assistance measures." Humphrey proposed even softer terms in expanded Food for Peace sales, restoration of U.S. food grants to 1972 levels and an increase in the U.S. 197576 pledge to the World Food Program from $140 million to $200 million. Humphrey also suggested that every American eat one less hamburger a week so there can be more food to ship to poor countries. He said saving in beef would "make some 10 million tons of grain available for food assistance." He asked Americans to reduce their nonfarm uses of almost X million tons of fertilizer yearly, saying "putting it on plants and lawns has nothing to do with food." Humphrey urged quick congressional action on legislation he has proposed that would establish a national food reserve policy, an increase in American, Kuropean and Japanese (Meetings fertilizer exports to developing countries and broad assistance to those countries in boosting food production. In line with a program the (ieneral Assembly approved May 1 in a special session on raw materials and development, Secretary-General Kurt Waldheitn announced the opening uf a special account for cash contributions for developing countries. Waldheim sent appeals to the major oil exporting countries and the Communist and non- Communist developed nations — but not to China, which classifies itself as a developing country. After an opening meeting in a U.N. hall, the conference, sponsored by several foundations, moved to Hensselaerville, N.Y. to continue through Sunday. DR. N. E.
