Road toll hits 278 By The Associated Press The Fourth of July weekend traffic death toll in the nation stood at 278 today with almost two-thirds of the holiday period over. Showers lingered over the Southeast and parts of the northern Plains, but weekend activities were unmarred by the weather in most other sections of the nation. The count of traffic deaths began at 6 p.m. Wednesday and will end at midnight Sunday in all tune zones. The National Safety Council estimated that between 450 and 550 persons would die on the nation's highways during the holiday period.

It's just as difficult in science and medicine, and that includes the field of nutrition. We are all sure of certain facts. Then there are other facts that are probably correct, and we act on them because they seem to offer the better gamble. Finally, there are gray areas, where we have a few facts, some traditional beliefs and a lot of word-of-mouth "experience" that has never really been challenged. When it comes to our knowledge of nutrition, what are some of these gray areas? We know a lot about calories, for instance — where we get them, what our bodies do with them. We know that eating more than you expend will lead to weight gain, eating less will lead to weight loss. But our knowledge is far less secure about what actually makes you a fat person or a thin person. Indeed, we have not yet found the ideal way to lose weight — and we are very ineffective at keeping people's weight down once they have reached their target. Nor do we know very much about the interaction of psychological and physiological factors in weight loss and gain. We know how much protein will keep an average adult alive and healthy. But we don't know if there are any advantages to a very high protein intake. It seems well established that polyunsatwated fats in the diet retard the deposition of cholesterol in the arteries, but we don't know how. For that mater, we do not know how a diet interacts with a number of other environmental factors to make coronaries and strokes mor—or less—likely to occur. \Ve know, with assurance, that a number of vitamins are required in our diet. People get sick without them. We also know you can get sick from too much Vitamin A or D. But we really don't know the effects of very large amounts of other vitamins. As for Vitamin E, we know that E-deficiency is very rare. But we have good scientific evicence, on the other hand, that massive doses of Vitamin E cure any condition, despite all the claims. Are we even aware of all the vitamins needed by man? No, not for sure. The situation regarding minerals is even more complex. We have a fairly complete understanding of the requirements for a dozen or so major minerals, but we know little about the trace minerals we need in very small amounts. From a practical viewpoint, what conclusions can we draw from all this? First, although we don't know everything, we do know that it's best to select as many natural (as opposed to manufactured) foods for inclusion in our diets every day. In that way we at least know what we are eating, and in general, foods close to their original state have the most nutrients. Second, try to keep up to date on confirmed scientific findings — what we know with some certainty after the debates and controversies have subsided. Again, this will add to your store of practical knowledge and take some of the ganble out of eating. Finally, remember there are no such things as miracle foods or miracle diets. And the more exaggerated the claims and promised benefits, the more certain you should be that it belongs in the gray area and, therefore, should be regarded with some degree of suspicion. 90 56 0 82 58 1.32 86 64 0 86 55 0 90 57 0 1 91 55 .01 2 90 66 .03 3 77 59 1.00 4 83 55 0 5 93 61 0 Jos.

SOUTH HIGHWAY 59-FERGUS FALLS Blue gross festivals becoming more popular Fergis Falls (Mo.) burial Sat., July 6, 1974 CHILHOWIE, Va. (AP) - AS much as the dialects spoken there, music is the language of the eastern mountains and river bottoms where many of America's early settlers stopped during the westward movement of the last two centuries. American folk music exists in many forms. This music, like those who play and sing it, is primarily of English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh origin, and in certain cases can be traced back as far as Elizabethan limes. In the more commercialized and bowdlerized versions it is known as hillbilly, or country and western, and many practitioners of the original music nave gone on to success in this field. But the original music survives in many places in nearly pristine form and is now enjoying a popular resurgence across the United States. Generally it is known as "blue grass," a term which applies in the strictest sense to music performed on stringed instruments, sometimes accompanied by singing. Blue grass festivals are held all around the country in the spring and summer, with ama- City building permits increase during June Fifty-three biding permits totaling $264,391 were issued by the City of Fergus Falls during the month of June, compared with 36 permits totaling $165,672 issued in May.
