Flu Kept 2 Millions Off The Job WASHINGTON (fl-At least 2,700,000 workers, by conservative government count, lost some working time during October due to influenza or other illnesses. The government reported this today in an October job survey, which also showed employment increased slightly by 330,000 \o 66 million. Unemployment remained the same as in September at 2H million. The report said the combined total of persons who missed one or more days work because of illness in October was nearly twice as high as that reported for Sep- Danny Kaye Gives Reasons For "No Television" Ban By DANNY KAYE HOLLYWOOD (UP) — "What have you got against television?" No, not you—me. What I mean is, this is the question that I am asked most frequently nowadays. Because I don't appear on television, 'most everyone I know seems to think I must bear some deep-seated grudge against the medium. <Vctuallp I have nothing against television. I watch it all the time. But I don't want to be seen on it. And I have a lot of reasons. As a matter of fact, I could write a book about it. Oh, I know, you have seen me on television — on the Edward R. Murrow program, 'The Secret Life Of Danny Kaye," the one about UNICEF and the children all over the world. But that wasn't what I would really call appearing on television. It was a filmed record of a trip I made around the world for the bN Children's Fund, not a -"show" as an entertainer. Why won't I make that kind of an appearance? For one thing, I enjoy my life very much the way it is. I like making motion pictures. I enjoy making' the stage I appearances I do. I get a great thrill from my work for UNICEF. But 'I can't do all this and television, too. In television, it's possible to take a complete unknown, surround him with top creative talent, money and production and, within four weeks, make him a national rage—a household word. If this holds true, it also must follow that in the same amount of time, television can destroy him. Another point: A professional and polished performer can do a show on Broadway and be a smash hit. He can run in that play for years and gain an international reputation. Yet one television - appearance—good or bad—by that same performer will bt seen by more people than could ever see him in a portrayal where he has had months and years to arrive at perfection. Mind you, I'm not saying that any of these points will keep me off television permanently. I just haven't made up my mind about it yet. Nor has anyone presented me with a show that I felt like doing on TV. The portable hat mix plant used to mix the paving materials for Cass county roads is shown in operation above. A huge tank holding the hot asphalt can be seen at the right while in the background are the piles of processed gravel ready lor mixing with the asphalt, The top of a county highway truck being filled with the paving mixture is barely visible as it stands on a road which was dug out so the trucks could be driven under the mixing plant. Use Portable Mix Plant for Local Road Paving A portable, all-electric continuous] at the gravel pit south of U.S. mix plant with a capacity of 100 tons an. hour is providing Cass, Carroll, White and Clinton counties with stronger and more durable paved roads at only a little higher cost than the old style paving methods, according <to Cass Highway Superintendent Elmer Shuman. This plant, located temporarily tember and In October last year. Another major finding in the joint Commerce - Labor Depart- jment report was that the usual upturn in fall employment and I downturn in unemployment failed !to materialize in the expected de- :gree. With the labor force increasing | by 250,000, the ratio of unemployment was figured on a seasonally •adjusted basis of 4.6 per cent, a jbit higher than in September. | As for the employed, Asian flu i evidently took its toll on their (working time.

An additional 1,400,000 full- time workers put in less than 35 Used last year for the first time in Cass county, the portable plant is owned by the Smith Construction company of Flora. Twenty- five miles of Cass county roads were paved with its help last year. Although this type of plant has been used before by state highway departments and some of the larger cities, the cost was prohibitive for counties until the portable plant was devised. It can be set up in four days at a processed gravel pile. During the past month it has sufficient to cover half the road while traffic is routed over the other side of the highway. A penetrating oil is spread ahead of the hot mix. Ordinarily, about three-fourths of a mile of this nine-foot wide pavement can be laid in Cass county in a day's time, Shuman said. The other half of the road is then laid the following day. The speed is dependent upon the dryness of the gravel which is being used. Under the old. paving method a layer of penetrating oil was ap- TheCHIROPRACTOR-and^ Health and A Fall Goodier of Galveston, where from i base.

Illness, plus less overtime work (over 40 hours a week), helped push down the average work week from 41.1 hours in October 1956 to 40.5 hours currently. There were 1,00,000 fewer workers: on overtime this October than last. The factory work week was 12 to 15 thousand yards of gravel were dipped last spring. The county buys the gravel and contracts with the Smith Construction company to mix it with the asphalt and lay it on the roads.

Falls or jars sometimes slight which at the time are passed unnoticed are responsible for nerve impingement, the effects of which are serious indeed. That is an important think to remember in this day when automobile and other accidents are so common. One need not be cut or bruised, nor need one have broken bones in order for an accident to have been serious. If one or more segments of the spine are displaced sufficiently to produce pressure on nerve trunks- the tissues supplied by these nerve trunks cannot function normal- ly. If the pressure is slight and if the surrounding tissues are uninjured, nature often automatically corrects these spinal abnormalities. If, however, this displacement is not automatically corrected, it means that a slow process of tissue depletion begins. This may involve the digestive track, the kidneys, the heart or other vital organs. So long as the nerve pressure persists, the illness will continue. That is why the precaution of seeing a Chiropractor should be taken following falls and accidents. Chiropractors make no charge for consultation. From here, the mix plant is being moved to Clinton county for | the paving of'roads there, according to Laurel Smith, owner of the equipment.
