OUPI) - The problem facing University of Oregon's great distance running crew is this: What can they do for an encore? A quartet of Duck milers, Archie San Romani, Vice Reeve, Keith Forman and Dyrol Burleson, shattered the world record for the four-mile relay Saturday by an unbelievable 14.9 seconds. "As long as you live," said Snort Winsted, chief timer for the West Coast Relays, "you'll never again see a record 'shattered, that badly. And to think that four students from one school turned the trick. It's hard to believe." The-, world mark was 16:23.8, set by New Zealand's national team. The boys from Oregon turned the distance in 16:08.9. And much of the credit must go to their coach, .Bill Bowerman, who has turned out what may be the best college track team in the country this year. Bowerman split his team up to send six men to Fresno .for the relays; and the rest of the club went north from Eugene ,to Seattle to meet Washington. The Ducks swamped the Huskies, 9846. In addition to the four-mile : relay performance here, the Oregon men also turned in these marks in the relays: Harry Jerome Von the 100-yard dash in a'wind-aided 9.3 seconds. Jerry Ta'rr captured the 120- yard high hurdles in 13.7. Forman came back from his re 1 lay effort to easily .win the mile run in 4:00.7. "That mile was my" all-time best," said Forman after his race. "I think I'm about ready to break' through the four-minute barrier." Burleson, of course, already is well under with the American, record of 3:56.7. His anchor lap on Jie relay runs was .3:57.9 — and won for him the "Outstanding Athlete" award for the meet. I Dear Ann Landers: During church services Sunday a member, of the 'congregation fainted. The minister kept right on with his sermon as if nothing had'hap- pened! . • ' L It's not possible that our pastor was unaware of the incident because .there was a great deal of confusion. Several people vacated their places in the pew to make room'? for the woman'to lie do\vn : Finally an usher asked .the minister to inquire if a doctor was present. ' Well, Ann, the .church- was filled, bi .(here was not .even ONE doctor in the crowd. When the- woman came to she was helped to her feet and taken out intd the fresh air. This got me to thinking. Is church a safe place to go when a person has a heart condition as I do? Maybe I'd be better off at the Country club, playing golf. That's where all the doctors are. And what sort, of minister ignores a stricken person and keeps right on talking? The poor soul could have died right then and there HI the house of God and no notice 'wouldj have been taken. Some 'members of the congregation said, "The show must go on," but I don't -think a church is a theatre. Your opinion?—NO DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE ' Dear No: You're wrong on bolh counts. The minister should continue with her sermon if a parishioner faints. It's a pretty common occurrence and without question he would have asked for a doctor when it became obvious one was needed.- I agree it seems a trifle odd that there was not a single doctor present. In-the absence of the facts, however, let's be charitable and assume they, were all up la'te Saturday—serving humanity: * + fc Dear Ann Landers: I'm in a spot.. Can you help? A close friend of mine returned recently -from a trip to South-America. She sent a postcafd from" Buenos Aires to say she had just purchased a "most exciting gift" for me. I could scarcely wait till she came home. Well, yesterday she' brought over the "exciting gift." It almost scared me to death. It's an alligator hand bag with the reptile's h^ad, teeth, feet; loenails—every- thing. It looks alive and its hideous. . . Worse still, she bought one for herself, and we go to the same parties and club meetings. One bag like .this is enough to knock a person's eye out—but can yon envision TWO? Please tell me what to do. JUNGLE FEVER Dear Fever: Be gracious and carry' the bag a few times and then lose it. Unfortunately it would take years to wear it out. Alligator bags are 'virtually indestructible, * * * Dear Ann: My husband and I have been married 11 years. We've always been fond of children but unhappily we were never blessed. Last week we adopted a baby boy. We want to-notify our relatives and close friends of our good fortune via engraved announcements. I want to use the Eight Killed Near Camp Pendleton , GAMP PENDLETON, . Calif., (UPI) — Eight, persons were killed Sunday night — three of theni children — and six others critically injured in a head-on collision at this huge Marine base. Marine,Corps officials said the accident occurred about a half- mile from . the .San Luis Rey Gate on the four-lane highway that'leads out of the post toward the eastern boundary.- ' i Investigators said an outbound vehicle crossed' the divider line and slammed into an oncoming car. Both' vehicles were registered to military personnel stationed^at the base. One of the injured was a child AIL.six..were taken to the Navy •Hospital on the base. Names, of 'the dead and Injured were withheld pending notification of next,of 1 kin. word '"adopted." My husband feels we should say . "arrived " My sister suggested no formal announcements, but rather a brief handwritten note to, our nearest and dearest. Who is correct?— MOM AND POP Dear Mom and Pop: In most instances adoption proceedings cannot be started until the child has been in the custody of the adoptive parents for six months .Therefore the word "adopted" would be misleading, and "arrived" would be even more so. .

Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Seven' JOSEPHINE LOWMAN New Weapons and Methods Help Fight Mental Disease Tranquilizer pills prescribed by in combatting mental illness. The, great progress which has been made recently in the control and cure of mental illness is one of the most exciting and rewarding things which is happening on the modern scene. Mental illness IS an illness just as tuberculosis and cancer are. So much has been learned and your doctor are valuable aids there are so many new weapons with which to fight this malady! There are the tranquilizing and anti-depressant drugs, shock therapy, individual psychotherapy and group therapy. Diseases Conquered In the past many dread diseases have been conquered such as typhoid fever, smallpox and diph- theria. Now polio and tuberculosis, are about whipped, and before long science no doubt will vanquish heart disease and cancer. These successes have been possible because medical research has been backed by the public. Mental illness is now on the list of enej mies to be understood -and com trolled. One of the most important part? in the treatment of mental illness is the rehabilitation or after-care following discharge from the hospital. The Mental Health Association helps find the patient a job it' he needs it, or ;i place to live if he has no family or if it is best., for him to live away from the family, and helps him get essen-. lial medication. A warm welcome from family and friends and those who understand' is of the great-, est value. More Needed More after-care medical clinics- are needed for those discharged from mental hospitals. More ex- patient- clubs and "half-way hous'- • es" are essential to aid the indK vidua] in adjusting to the society to which he has returned. Research has shown' that tho more adequate the rehabilitative services the community is able to provide, the fewer readmissions there will be.
