DeGroat, a conservative has traditionally run as an independent, but has caucused with the conservatives. DeGroat said it was "foolhardy to run as an independent candidate due to the party designation law passed by the liberal DFL legislature in 1973." DeGroat said he chose to run as a Republican because the "Republican Party giees recognition to individual rights, rights that are not recognized by the DFL." DeGroat added that he will continue to be a free-thinking individual and will continue to represent his constituents fairly and individually. • District IDA includes Becker County and part of northern Otter Tail County. only Intermittent during the shakedown.

Faisal also criticized those who oppose Nixon in and out of the United States: "It is very important that our friends in the United States ... rally behind you in your efforts to se- cure peace." "Anybody who stands against you in the United States or outside the United States of America or against your relationship with us has only one thing in mind, to splinter us and damage the chances for peace," Faisal said. The exchange of remarks followed more than two hours of private talks between Nixon and Faisal. Unlike the toasts Food for Thought" Diet links with ulcers By JEAN MAYER Professor of Nutrition, Harvard University Peptic ulcer is one of the commonest diseases in America. Millions of people have suffered from it or are still suffering from it Although scientists have discounted the old beliefs that hot, spicy foods or a particular nutritional deficiency cause ulcers, it is certainly true that diet is closely linked with-the cause and cure of ulcers. Coffee, tea and alcohol, along with a nonfood, tabacco, have all been incriminated, though not proven, to be culprits. Caffeine, for example, increases the secretion of highly acidic gastric juice. Alcohol has a similar effect. (On the other hand, alcohol also stimulates " the secretion of mucus, which may counteract the action of the acid. Certainly straight alcohol can damage the lining of the stomach.) We're less sure about tobacco. Its role is hard to evaluate, because highly- strung individuals, who seem to be predisposed to ulcers, also often smoke (and drink coffee) a great deal. It has been suggested that stress and hurried, poorly- chewed meals are also contributing factors. This is largely because there is a high rate of ulcers among physicians, industry executives and foremen. And there's good reason to believe that heredity plays an important role, since a high proportion of duodenal ulcer patients belong to blood group 0, and close relatives of peptic ulcer sufferers are more likely to develop ulcers than other people. In addition, adolescent ulcer victims frequently come from families with a history of ulcers. Whatever the cause, the treatment is generally the same. Surgery is not usually required; doctors will first use other means to accomplish the three most important goals — relief of symptoms, healing of the ulcer, and prevention of recurrence. The regimen will include rest (both physical and psychological). Sedatives, antacids and antispasmodics as well as a bland diet (at least to begin with) are prescribed in small amounts to be taken at frequest intervals. Smoking is forbidden. Let me point out — and emphasize strongly — that when I speak of ulcer diets, I mean diets recommended by physicians. You cannot do it yourself; any suspected ulcer calls for medical attention. Over the past half century, all sorts of diet schemes have been proposed for people with ulcers; some have turned out to be useful as treatment but dangerous to the patient over a period of tiem. Until recently, the diets most often used were the Sippy diet, which consisted of taking milk or milky foods every hour, and the Unhartz diet, which was similar, but substituted eggs for some of the milk intake. Our consciousness of the effect of cholesterol on the arteries has led most physicians to shift to what is called the Meulengracht diet, reserving the Sippy for early treatment of patients who have severe pain. The Meulengracht diet includes a much wider variety of foods than older plans. It allows chicken, turkey, fish and other lean meats as well as fruits and vegetables. There are thoroughly ground in a blender or food mill and eaten at two- hour intervals. The high protein content of this diet reduces acid better than the milk diet, and allows a greater variety of tastes (even though all the meals are of baby food consistency). Then, top, the fat content of this diet is lower. In genera], an ulcer diet contains three stages. First, seven or more very small meals are eaten daily. Next, the same foods are given at the same intervals but in larger portions. Finally, you go on an ordinary diet, omitting certain foods known to cause you pain. These, by the way, may vary widely from person to person — still another reason why you need personal attention from a doctor if you have an ulcer. An ulcer doesn't need to be a terrifying experience. But I can't help repeating that you cannot ignore an ulcer or handle it on your own. What you can—and must—do alone is to dedicate yourself to a lifelong discipline which admits of no excess or extravagance. made at a state dinner Friday night, there was no mention, direct or indirect, of oil. Faisal had gently reminded the United States Friday of its vulnerability to the Arab oil weapon. In what may be turning into an Arab tradition, King Faisal used the toast of a state dinner Friday night to remind Nixon of the crucial role played by the Palestinian question in the region. Egyptian President Anwar Sadat referred to the matter in a toast to Nixon on Wednesday, saying: "There is no other road for a durable peace without a political solution to the Palestinian problem." Nixon was welcomed to Jidda Friday for an overnight stop by a friendly but traditionally low- keyed population, contrasting to the almost hysterical crowds who greeted him in Egypt. Faisal, who also was warm but subdued in his greetings, rose at the end of the state dinner and said: "We believe that there will never be a real and lasting peace in the area unless Jerusalem is liberated and returned to Arab sovereignty, unless liberation of all the occupied Arab • 'territories is achieved and unless Arab peoples of Palestine regain their rights ..." Nixon's response to Faisal was the same as to Sadat. "We want to play a helpful role ..." he said. "But we are aware that we cannot produce an instant formula to solve all long-time differences." The king considers himself responsible for the protection of the Moslem holy places in Jerusalem and wants all Jewish participation in the Biblical city ended. Saudi Arabia was a leader of the Arab oil boycott against the United States after last October's Middle East war, and it has implied that the embargo might be renewed if America fails in its efforts for a Middle East peace. The aim of the American Association of Blood Banks is to improve the quality and safety of human blood transfusions by providing technical information, encouraging research and promoting the voluntary concept of blood donation.

A three-pronged, serpentine, green, bronze beanstalk, topped by orange-and-yellow translucent lotuses which alternately lighted up and sprayed water, sprouted overnight in the reflecting pools of the Department of Water and Power office building here. Wade Cornell, 27, a sculptor from Oxnard, Calif., and three barefoot friends hauled the 15- foot sculpture over a six-foot wall early Friday, assuring a worried night watchman that it was a gift to the people of Los Angeles and the department.

She also appeared fascinated by a Bedouin women's face mask decorated with old coins and buttons. Such masks are worn by many Arab women in keeping with the Moslem custom of keeping women out of the sight of men. A gold bracelet caught Mrs. Nixon's eye at one stall and the shopkeeper told her gold was now selling at $160 an ounce. She purchased a copper coffee pot instead. During the 30-minute market tour, reporters asked Mrs. Nixon about the private dinner party she attended Friday night at Queen Iffat's palace overlooking the Red Sea. The all-woman party, which coincided with an all-male party given by King Faisal in honor of President Nixon and 220 other guests at his own palace, was closed to the press.

FRANK DeGROAT Ballet stars leave Soviet VIENNA (AP)-Balletstars Valery Panov and his wife Galina Ragozina were in Austria today enroute to Israel after a 26-month battle to leave the Soviet Union. Panov, 35, a former star of Leningrad's famed Kirov Ballet, said he would resume training for an extensive dance tour. He also said he was carrying plans for two new ballets in his head. Mrs. Panov, 25, told friends in Leningrad Friday that she suffered a miscarriage last Monday in Vilnius, three days after she and her husband were granted exit visas. The Panovs first applied to emigrate to Israel in March 1972. Panov was fired from the Kirov troupe and Ragozina, a soloist, was demoted, and then also fired. Panov, a Jew, was granted a visa last December but told his Russian wife could not leave. But he refused to leave without her. One week ago the Leningrad visa office unexpectedly told the Panov they were free to go. Arriving in Vienna, the couple was spirited from the airport without talking to waiting newsmen. There was no indication when they would continue their voyage to Israel. invited. "It was just a beautiful dinner," Mrs. Nixon said. She did not elaborate.
