Flu Kept 2 Millions Off The Job NEW PORTABLE HOT MIX PLANT )anny Kaye Gives Reasons : or "No Television" Ban By DANNY KAYE HOLLYWOOD CUP1 — "What ave you got -against television?" No, not you—me.' What I mean , this is the question that I am sked most frequently nowadays, ecause I don't appear on tele- ision, 'most everyone I know eems to think I must bear some eep-seated grudge" against the medium. Actuallp I have nothing against elevision. I watch it all the time. But I don't want to be seen on And I have a lot of reasons. ^s a matter of fact, I could write book about it. Oh, I know, you ave seen me on television — on he Edward R. Murrow program, The Secret Life Of Danny Kaye," he one about UNICEF and the hildren all over the world. But that wasn't what I would eally call appearing on television., t was a.filmed record of a trip made around the world for the ?N" Children's Fund, not a "show" is an entertainer. • Why won't I make that kind of an appearance? For one thing, I njoy my life very much the way t is. I like making motion pic- ures. I enjoy making the stage The portable hot mix plant used to mix the paving materials for- Cats county roads is shown in operation above.

JM1 week of Oct. Ma when the . ,, . ,- ,. „ • L-L, government took its October job Another major finding in the.6 addit ional 1,400,000 full- I joint Commerce - Labor Depart- , - , .. WASHINGTON Iff)—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 to 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- ment report was • that the usual upturn in fall employment and downturn in unemployment failed to materialize in the expected degree. 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 bit higher than in September. As for the employed, Asian flu evidently took • its toll on their working time. The government report attributed what it called an unprecedented loss of working time in October to a "sharp rise in cases of influenza and other respiratory illnesses." The report showed 1,300,000.with 40.7 hours in workers absent trom their jobs the ' year. time workers put in less than 35 hours a week as a result of short- term illnesses. ~" Spokesmen said this toll was conservative because it did not include the cases of illness among workers who normally put in over 40 hours a week and may have been ill and still put in at least 35 hours. 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 even lower, 39.5 hours compared October last 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 larg- sufficient to cover half the roai while traffic is routed over th other side of the highway. A pene trating oil is spread ahead of th hot mix. Ordinarily, about three-fourths o a mile of this nine-foot wide pave ment can be laid in Cass county a a day's time, Shuman said. Th er cities, the cost was prohibitive. other half of the road is then lai for counties until the portable! the following day. The speed i plant was devised. It can be set up in four days at a processed gravel pile. During the past month it has been at the site leased by Clarence Goodier of Galveston, where from 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. A high lift loader is used to fill the hopper of the mixer with processed gravel. It goes to the dryer by conveyor and then into a pro- portioner. From the proportioned the gravel goes into a mixing pug mill, where the hot asphalt is metered into it. , , After the county trucks haul it to the job site, the paving material is laid in strips nine feet wide, dependent upon the dryness of th gravel which is being used. ' Under the old paving method layer of penetrating oil was a] plied to soak through the grave base. This was topped by a lave of No. 9 stone, a layer of asphal and then a layer of No. 11 ston as a sealer. It was then necessarj to apply another layer of ston to reseale the road the followin year. This resealing is not necessarj under the new method and th pavement no longer "bleeds" i hot weather as it did when the o! 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 alternation" al reputation. Yet one television appearance—good or bad—by that same performer will bfc 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 lik* doing on TV. 4 TheCrllROPRACTOR-and^ Health and A Fall An accident need not be servere to be followed by dire result. Falls or jars sometimes slight which at the time are passed unnoticed are responsible for nerve impingement, the effects of which are seri- •ous 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 persist!, the illness will continue. That ii why the precaution of seeing a Chiropractor should be taken following falls and accidents. Chiropractors make no charge for consultation. methods were used, Shuman ex plained. 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.
