Do you need roughage? Roughage is important because it retains essential water to form the bulk that moves waste material through your system.

With Qfouth LBJ and the Young During the late 196ffs President Lyndon Johnson was regarded as a villain by many of the young. According to 33-year- old Harvard Prof. Doris Kearns in her recently released biography, "Lyndon Johnson and The American Dream," the late President was aware of his unpopularity with young people, and "it saddened him." In a conversation with Kearns, Johnson said: "I just don't understand these young people. Don't they realize I'm really one of them? I always hated cops when I was a kid, and just like them I dropped out of school and took off for California. I'm not some conformist middle-class personality. I could never be bureaucratized." Doris Kearns met Lyndon Johnson in the spring of 1967. S/ie was a 24-year-old Harvard graduate student chosen to work as a White House Fellow. Later she formed a close relationship with Johnson, who asked her to help him with his autobiography. The difference in their outlooks was demonstrated when the two viewed the movie "The Graduate" at the President's ranch. "How in the hell can that creepy guy be a hero to you?" Johnson asked Kearns of Dustin Hoffman. "All I needed was to see 10 minutes of that guy, floating like a big lump in a pool, moving like an elephant in that woman's bed, riding up and down the California coast polluting the atmosphere, to know that I wouldn't trust him for one minute with anything that really mattered to me. And if that's an example of what love seems like to your generation, then we're all in big trouble. All they did was to scream and yell at each other before getting to the altar.. Then after it was over they sat on the bus like dumb mutes with absolutely nothing to say to one another." Regardless of the cultural dif- Swift ferences separating their generations, Kearns felt it was unfair of the young in the 1960's to cast Johnson in so villainous a role. "But," she explains, "he also did not perceive the genuine impulses behind their own, somewhat different American dream." Birch University The controversial John Birch Society plans-to open a university by 1979--possibly in Northern California. According to Charles Armour, the society's district governor for Western states, the ultra-right-wing organization envisions a university of no religious or political affiliation, but one which will offer a classical education as offered by Harvard and Yale of old. JOHN MELLOR IN New life for John Last year John Mellor, a young English bakery worker, weighed 350 pounds. "I was too embarrassed," he says, "to do anything socially, especially meet girls." Then John joined a weight- reducing club. He's down to 168. "And it's a relief," he says. "I can sit on a sofa without being afraid it will collapse. I Wtssi!iii$iB$a!§- HIS OLD TROUSERS can go to a cinema--before I couldn't because I was too large to fit in a seat. I would never dance. My life was nothing. It was passing me by. Today I'm living it up." Bachelor John is shown in a pair of trousers from his 350- pound days, when he had a 58- inch waist. "I plan," he says, "to lose another seven pounds. After that, 111 keep my weight at that figure."
