11C-- August 17,1975 Siu Art Work Missing From State Capitol Exhibit Combination Sculpture-Painting Valued at $750 $750 Painting Missing From Capitol Exhibit ABCs OF HEALTH Here Are Some Helpful Cardiac Hints You Shouldn't Have the Heart to Ignore By Mario* Wells Retevch Director, XmcricM Pkyticml Fit- HCM Retetrck liutitNlc Believe it or not, in this age of labor unions and collective bargaining there is still one kind of worker that is expected to labor day in, day out, year after year for a lifetime, without a vacation or even so much as a break, and often under gradually worsening working conditions. The identity of this worker is is the human heart, and if yours goes on strike, you could get laid off permanently. Take heart, however. As one physician puts it, "The time to prevent a heart attack is during all those years when, as far as you know, your heart is perfectly healthy." The following hints may put you a heartbeat closer to health and pay other important bonuses as well. Regular exercise can benefit both your waistline and your heart. It' been found that proper physical conditioning may help increase cardiac efficiency, lower blood pressure, trim off excess fat and relieve tension. » * * AUTHORITIES recommend consulting your physician before beginning any program of unaccustomed physical activity. Start activity with a warming up period and end by slowing down gradually. Walking at a brisk, steady pace is considered particularly good exercise. the colon and rectum and diverticular disease. ITS IMPORTANT to eat a balanced diet containing adequate amounts of all essential nutrients, since various other nutrients have also been linked to the health of your heart. It's also a good idea to minimize your intake of greasy, fatty fried foods and skim and trim excess fat from soups, gravies and meats. Follow any specific recommendations your physician makes. What about alcoholic beverages and your heart? Recent findings suggest that excessive drinking over time may adversely affect the heart muscle or further boost triglyceride levels in individuals with already elevated serum triglycer- ides. Since the effects of alcohol may vary with the individual, let your doctor, and not social pressure, be your guide. Is obesity "weighing heavily" on your heart? Cardiologists note that extra pounds make your heart work extra hard, and "An overworked heart is exceedingly vulnerable." Remember, too. that cigarette smoking, high blood pressure and excessive stress may all put you a heartbeat further from health. Do what you can to identify and eliminate unnecessary tensions and set aside some time to relax. Have your blood pressure checked as part of regularly scheduled physical examinations. A final thought. If you keep in mind that the way to a healthy heart may be at least partly through the stomach, it may be some of the best life insurance you can ever have.

Four West Virginians Candidates for Degrees ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Four West Virginians are among this summer's candidates for degrees from the University of Michigan. They are Joyce Greer Ellison of Charleston, Marcia Oaklander of Parkersburg, Robert Dobbins of Williamstown, and Robert Barry Lees of Clarksburg. Will the food that goes into your stomach help you stay young at heart? Evidence indicates excess dietary fat and cholesterol may not be the only areas of concern. The average sugar consumption in this country is over 100 pounds per person per year. According to British nutri- tion'expert John Yudkin, M.D., findings point to sugar as an important environmental factor in coronary disease in susceptible individuals. In both animals and humans, a number of subjects on a high sugar diet have shown physiological changes associated with coronary disease, including a rise in blood fat levels. The case for moderation in sugar intake is further strengthened by findings concerning the trace element chromium. In research whth animals, an indicated association has been found between chromium deficiency and elevated blood sugar levels, elevated blood cholesterol levels, and, in one study with rats, atherosclerosis. There is evidence that chromium tends to be low in a significant number of American adults. Though all the information isn't in, Henry A. Schroeder, M.D., an international authority on trace elements, suggests we're more likely to meet our chromium requirement through dietary sources and avoid further depleting our body's chromium stores if we avoid or minimize consumption of refined white sugar and favor whole grain breads and cereals over refined white flour products. Note that white sugar contains relatively little chromium and whole wheat bread may have up to three and a half times as much chromium as white bread. Findings also suggest that getting adequate amounts of fiber.from whole grains, fruits and vegetables may have a favorable effect on blood cholesterol levels, and may also help reduce the risk of cancer of New York Time* Service NEW YORK - Disc jockeys advise late night talkers on their love lives, health groups counsel callers out of suicidal depression, recordings give out the weather. And last week those who were worried about the rising cost of living could call Washington and have a real farmer tell them that it isn't his fault. The voice on the other end could belong to any one of a dozen farmers who were brought to Washington, D.C., to work for three days on a toll-free "hot line" set up by the Agriculture Council of America, a farmers' group representing 350,000 of the nation's 2.2 million farmers and supported by such corporations as Deere Co., the International Harvester Co. and the Allis- Chalmers Corp. tractor of the same horsepower costs $40,000, he argues.

"Flour is going up and the companies are saying it's the increasing price of grain. Restaurants are raising meat prices and arguing it's because of higher grain prices. This just isn't true," Gollings said. He's supplied his farmers with a kit explaining that while the price of bread has gone up 10 per cent in the last year, the price of wheat has gone down 45 per cent. Nevertheless, the volunteers are hesitant to say just what has made bread so dear. "We're not trying to point the finger a 1 anybody", Wilmer Smith, a cotton and grain sorghum producer from Wilson Tex., tells callers. "We're just saying the cost of the raw material shouldn't- make the price go up." . - . * * * WHICH IS not to say that the price of the raw material shouldn't go up a bit more than it has, the farmers say. To hammer the point home, E.L. Hatcher of Lamar, Colo., president of the National Wheat Institute, uses the same argument that the underdeveloped nations use in demanding higher prices for their commodities. In 1947, Hatcher tells callers, wheat sold . at about $3 a bushel and a new tractor cost $7,200. Today wheat is $3.46 a bushel and a City National Bank of Charleston A good bank A great bank to start with, to stay with. City National a a good bank to start with.
