THE BRAZospoftT FACTS EDITORIAL PAGE Brazosport and Brazoria County. Thursday. October 1, \959~ PAUL HARVEY NEWS Cooking Oil Is Indicted COW!) YOU SPARE A''DIME? THURSDA Are you getting a little Impatient with all the apparently fontradictory theories about what causes cancer? Qie day some "expert blames cigarettes and the next day another "expert" says It Is smoke pollution of our city atmosphere which causes it. Then you'll hear the Indiscriminate use of X-ray blamed for cancer. Others will theorize that it's really a matter of diet. Finally you decide if you can't amoke, you can't eat and you can't breathe, you might as well have the disease as the cure. So you're sometimes inclined to Ignore the well-meant warnings. The fact is that all of these several theories have, been proved. There Is no one Irritation, alone, which triggers cancer. Apparently any of a variety of repeated Irritants "sets the rage" for the malignancy to '" develop. The theories, therefore, are not nearly so contradictory or so conflicting as they sometimes sound. Recently another causative factor was discussed by another "expert," the highly respected Dr. E. Cuyler Hammond of the American.Cancer Society. Do you use the same cooking grease over and over? Don't. Dr. Hammond says, "It is a very reasonable hypothesis that the constant use of the same cooking greasecouldcausecan- cer of the stomach." Some years ago I was allowed to witness related clinical research. In this preliminary study of cancer a patient would be kept on a fat-free diet for a period of two weeks. The area of the external malignancy would become subdued. The inflammation would decrease. The cancer would appear to retrogress. 9understand, there was no evidence that fat-free diet, alone, would have cured the malignancy, but its progress was evidently retarded.) After two weeks of this blam' diet, the tissue around the are of the malignancy aDoeared 1- irritated, less feverisn. The patient was then fed one meal rich in meat.fat. The cancer, within hours, became conspicuously inflamed. In la; language, It "flared up," The progress of thecancerappeared to accelerate dramatically. There has been much more research in the laboratory and in the clinic in the years since. Apparently, according to' this spokesman for the ACS, there is now evidence adequate for an indictment, if not a conviction. "It has been proved in the laboratories that these agents (cancer-producing agents) are produced by repeated heatings of the same cooking grease. Now that we know the causative agent, the next step is to determine if the concentration is sufficient to produce cancer." Deep fat or "French frying" encourages the reuse of the same grease over and over. While the evidence is admittedly inconclusive, there isnov "enough smoke" from the stale grease pot to warrant some elf-enforced restraint. WASHINGTON SCENE... Kickee Questions Seats By GEORGE CAMP DAVID, Md. -S.ept.26 Whit,e House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty came rolling down the mountain to fillus in on who was doing what, and which, at the Eisenhower-Khrushchev •ummit meeting. In what I fancied was a gingerly manner, the- ascentic- looking Mr. Harrison Salisbury, of the New Tferfc Times,' helped himself to his feet and inquired where Vice President Nixon bad sat. Mr. Salisbury has acquired an understandable interest . 'in wher- • people sit, and how. sen extremely slt-con- 'nee Roswell,Garst, the » sharecropper of Coon .c, iowa, kicked him in the ensilage. Mr. Salisbury, who Is not a, bottom farmer, pressed Mr. Higerty astowhereVicePresl-' dent Nixon had deposited him- He h • ick hum • historie.conference high up in the hills. The presidential press secretary, a factual gentleman, replied that Mr. Nixon had sat in the sun parlor. I submit that Mr. Hagerty's reply marks him as a true son of the people. Looking sympathetically at the hoof-marked Times gentleman, he said: "The. vice president sat with Lodge and Hener and me- -people like that." Mr. Salisbury, who wouldpre- fer right now to be a member of the standing committee of correspondents, winced attheword "sati" 'but refrained from asking Mr. Hagerty what he meant 1$ ; "people"'likfe that.": ' Some of."the more precisely" word-conscious among us debated back and forth as to . whether it would be correct to report that the kickee of Coon Rapids "looked Agarst.".

I am indebted to- the Russian journalists for a translation of what Mr. Hagerty meant by "People like that " He referred to secretary of state Christian Herter, Un Ambassador Lodge and Maj. John Eisenhower. The President's son was here because he is a White House aide. Sergei Khrushchev was not present. Lguess.he just doesn't have the drag to get appointed a Kremlin aide. If Sergei's pop ate his way .through the menus at Camp David ^he' came dangerously 'close to .eating himself out of the league. I have before me the menus for his first dinner and breakfast with Ike and this is what was offered: Dinner: Oysters onhalfsheel, celery, olives, crackers, baked snapper, prime ribs of beef au jus, duches potatoes, Spanish omelette, chateau haut climens 1950 sauterne, chateau haut brion 1952 bordeaux, avocado and grapefruit salad, clover rolls, preserves, lime pie, demitasse, mixed nuts, mints.

Siting with Mr. Hagerty at all press briefings was Andrew H. Berding, his State Department alter ego, although I wouldn't for the world after the ego of either. Mr. Berding informed us that President Eisenhower and Premier Khrushchev got into "substantive; issues." Everybody, including -'the non- English speaking- Russians, apparently understood what that meant', so 1 was too 'timid to inquire. I have reserved the 'real rounded-out news for the end. To make room forapreas headquarters in the rear of the Gettysburg Hotel they had to oust a convention of brassiere makers. But I insist there was something uplifting about us too. Noise Can Be Dangerous Noise has been described as unwanted sound. In other words, noise is generally unpleasant--while sound (music, children's laughter) is pleasant. However, noise can also be dangerous. It has been estimated that there are approximately one million people in theUnited States who have hearing losses incurred as a result of high noise In their place of employment. Research indicates 20 to 30 per cent of adult employees suffer a significanthearingloss. Many of these hearing defects are not readily detectable In a verbal interview. If a person is to be exposed to certain levels of noise regularly, safeguards must be taken. For instance, if a worker is exposed day after day to a noise, falling between the 300 to 1200 cycle bands, with a sound level of 85 decibels, then noise-level control and periodic tests of • hearing loss should be maintained. v The' more tfie^ottivTs^^jaiid-lefels'-exceed* 85 * decibels, the more urgent is the need for a hearing conservation program. Each'rise of three decibels means the sound level has doubled. NATIONAL REPORT Eighty-five decibels of sound is the noise comparable to riding inside a sedan with the windows open in city traffic. Any b'usines which uses machines or maintains large staffs can possibly be exceeding this level with resultant hearing loss among employees. Means to correct noisy conditions arepractlca) and usually Inexpensive. Business managers can contact either a com merclal sound specialist or the Division c Occupational Health of the Texas State Department of Health for advice. Health Department engineers can measure the intensity of sound, amplitude of vibrations and separate the sound into octave bands and determine the exact level in each octave band. • Occupational health engineers-can then recommend proper steps to correct dangerous noise situations. , ...; v^.;- ; •''••. V '•'• * Corrective measures IncludeUnstilatioa-and/or isolation of the noise and personal protection (ear plugs).

Rebel Dems Assail Boss By CLAIRE COX United Press International £W YORK (UPI). - White House-bent Rebel Democrats, inspired by Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt •.nd other political "old pros," are trying to eize New York City's 170-year-old Tammany 'iger by the tail. Many insurgent* insist that the first step on the oad back to Washington must be the unseating f Carmine De Sapio as boss of Tammany, the 'emocratic Party in Manhattan. Others want to concent rate-on reorganizing ammany Hall at the grass roots level, and it does ot mater to them whether they do It without De ipio. But all the rebels agree that thepartyhas fared o poorly in recent elections, principally in the indslide that swept Republic Nelson A. Rocke- ;ller into the New York governor's chair, that it. ices certain crushing defeat next year unless omething is done. They agreedalsothat they must rebuild the party >reclnct by precinct to save the mayoralty for the parry. De Sapio's reply to all this has been to step up his campaign for re-election to leadership of lie. Greenwich Village Democratic district in which he lives. He also charges his attackers are Johnny-come-latelies on the reform bandwagon. The boss who has held the reins of Tammany Hall for 10 years claims he already has reformed the party. To prove his point, he has organized what he calls a "reform" Democratic club in a ' district where the oldline Tammany club defected to the insurgents. Precinct work In New York is done by political club members. The effectiveness of the campaign against De Sapio and his machine will be determined in the Sept.. 15 primary elections in which 33 district leaders will be chosen. These leaders will, in turn, control Democratic policy in New York County - Manhattan Island and what they decide will influence the outcome of the 1960 presidential nominating convention. Rebel and insurgent Democratic groups have nominated 20 opposition candidates in the country's 33 districts. Party leaders saidit marks the first time since Tammany was founded that its own members have attempted to reform it from within, instead of watingfor high-powered investigations by outsiders. Spearheading the driveto replace '.'thegashouse. leadership" and "restore ourparty to what it once was" is the recently organized New York Committee for Democratic Voters. The sponsoring chairmen are Mrs. Roosevelt, former Sen. Herbert H. Lehman, former New York City Police Commissioner Francis W. H.Adams, former Air Secretary Thomas K. Knletter and attorney Lloyd K. Garrison. The vice chairmenincludeMrs.MarshallFleld, widow of the publisher; Mrs. Albert D. Lasker, widow of the multi-millionaire advertising pioneer, and Dore Schar, writer-director- nroducer. FOREIGN NEWS CDMMWTARY Only Result Less Strain By PHO, NEWSOM UPI Foreign Editor Whether the Eisenhower-Khrushchev ,r.;;tUig was a turning point in the cold war or merely- another dead-end along the road will take many months to determine. From now until next summer, it would seem likely that the present improved atmosphere between the United States and Russia will continue. But from the official communique, and from the words of both President Eisenhower and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, it also seems that neither man changed his mind about basic Issues. There agreement was one to continue negotiations. But the original stumbling blocks still are there. For example,. take, Berlin and disarmament. Eisenhower was able to announce that the Russian ultimatum for removal of Allied forces in Berlin has been lifted and that the Berlin issue no longer has a deadline. . The deadline first was established by Khrushchev last Nov. 27 when he gave the Allies six months to get out. Failure to do so, he said, would mean that Russia would renounce the Potsdam agreement fox Satr-unitr KFKC-TV 4:0tt fij I.oonry Town flj Karly Slimv -"Art Ania-1 From Texas," EiMi* Albert, .Tnne Wyman, Ron- ulrt Renean i O Aniirlrmi Panchtnnd _ ~HMI jQ§j\ltTrik'« Showtime Jljlj'igrsiin J'ttinrUco Heat 8:30 (0 News, Sports _ (g Huckleberry Hound ~S:U fj lliitrlry.nrliikley O A Number of Thing* Doug Kdwsrds, N£* ~' »:W) O Nov.', Sporta Face of the Earth Ufe of Riley News.

In the face of still Allied resistance, the Soviets back-pedaled a bit at the recent Bil Kouf foreign ministers' conference in Geneva. Then they said they had never meant their Berlin pronouncements to constitute an ultimatum - only a demand for negotiations. For the West, and theUnitedStatesparticularly, Berlin represented no minor issue. It had guaranteed the well-being of 2 million West Berliners and failure to carry it out would have meant to abandon treaties ill over th* world. For.the U.S.S.R. it was easier. Berlin for them was not the major issue. Of more importance was their hold on 18 million East Germans, the, economic contribution the East Germans could make to the Communist world and the position they held as a buffer between East and West. An assured way to preserve the status quo into the Indefinite future would be separate peace treaties - one with East Germany, another with West Germany, meaning International recognition of separate nations.
