Page 2 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1970 WASHINGTON MARCH OF EVENTS- By LESTER L. COLEMAN, M.D. "VOICE OF AMERICA" NOW SEEN AS EFFECTIVE ORGAN MILK TOAST IMAGE CHANGED BY FORMER CBS EXECUTIVE Hopeful News in Medicine. By HENRY CATHCABT Central Press Washington Correspondent W ASHINGTON—Frank Shakespeare, the Nixon administration's director of the United States Information Agency, is being- credited with turning the agency into an effective propaganda organ for the U.S. abroad. In recent years the USIA'S "Voice of America" and other com. mentary outlets had developed a well founded "milk, toast and pablum" reputation. USIA functionaries often seemed to go out of their way to avoid the appearance of giving the point of view of the United States in their broadcasts and publications. The.State Department, moreover, exercised a veto power over all news stories and commentaries. Thus in times when the State De-. partment was seeking better relations with Communist nations many an anti-Communist line was cut from USIA copy. • But Shakespeare, the one-time Columbia Broadcasting Company executive and hardline anti-Communist, has changed all that. Republicans and conservative Democrats are highly pleased with Shakespeare's revisions at the agency. The State Departmcnt,- however, is not. Secretary of State William Rodgers fired off a memorandom to Shakespeare asserting that under the law the information agency must receive policy guidance from the State Department. This has not deterred Shakespeare. He asserts USIA was established by Congress as an independent agency and that as director of the agency he reports to the President and not to the secretary of State. j ..***•• RESIDENTS of the tiny state of Vermont saw first-hand the amazing increase in political spending in the recent battle there for a U.S. Senate seat. Sen. Winston Prouty, a Republican, and former Gov. Philip Hoff, a Democrat, spent an estimated $500,000, or five times the normal cost, for two candidates running for statewide office in Vermont. ^JTwo years ago Republican George Aiken, R-Vt., spent a grand total jot $17.10 in his campaign for re-election and most of that was for postage to return campaign contributions. Aiken was ^pposed only in the Republican primary. ^ Frank Shakespeare Rodgers is unhappy 0) WHILE BOTH PARTIES were setting spending records in Vermont, contestants for the Senate from Indiana were engaged in some old-fashioned mud slinging politics. Supporters of incumbent Democrat Vance Hartke openly called Republican "Richard Roudebush a "collector of wives" when he in fact was only once divorced. The Hartke camp put out stories that Roudebush's daughter was a drug addict, although there was no evidence to support,the story. Republicans replied in kind. Back in a 1967 Senate speech Hartke praised a spy novel by a Washington newsman and friend of the senator. When the book was published in Liberals Art paperback, the publishers carried Hartke's re- Seen Behind marks on the book's cover. . "DumpAgnew" A FASCINATING study- has just been completed on the selection of patients for cosmetic surgery. Mrs. Frances C. Macgregor, at the Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery of the New York Univerity Medical Center, says that "plastic surgery for cosmetic purposes i s as acceptable today as • the use of wigs, hair coloring, cosmetics, and the straighten i n g of teeth." Once it was Dr. Coleman believed that a cosmetic operation was a special luxury for wealthy people or for those in the entertainment world. This no longer is so. The changing attitudes towards cosmetic surgery in this more enlightened age are related to what has become' known, in the cliche of the day, as one's image—literally. The social, psychological, and emotional needs of all patients must, however, be carefully evaluated before cosmetic surgery is undertaken. Often great hope for a total personality change lies in the decision to undertake such surgery. Unless the limits of what this surgery can do are completely understood by the patient, it can be fraught with, great disappointment. Mrs. Macgregor has, for years,' been one of the leading advocates of the idea that cosmetic surgery should be undertaken' only when the real purpose is understood by the patient and the doctor. A . remarkable instrument has recently been devised to give doctors positive information about the condition of arteries deep in the body. It can tell them if arteriosclerosis, adhesions, and even small tumors are present within the arteries and veins. Using _ the principles of ultrasound, the instrument can actually measure, with astounding accuracy, the size of the blood vessel, its position, and the "degree of healthy flow, of blood. Dr. Milos J. Lota at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Lebanon, Penit, has developed this sensitive device arid modified one that had previously been in use. The great advantage of this instrument is that it avoids all the discomfort that was previously associated with other techniques used to seek), important information for. diagnosis and for treatment . of vascular conditions. Dr. Lota believes that his instrument can provide an instant numerical reading that can be compared, from time to time, as treatment progresses. This is truly an exciting advance in the understanding of vascular diseases. '.»•*, SPEAKING OF YOUR : HEALTH: Many bone frac-, tures can be avoided if hand railings are used.
