Page 2 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 21, 1970 ShMllKIHDL By LESTER L. COLEMAN. M.D. ALMANAC On the Lighter Side Hopeful News In Medicine Dr. Coleman THE MEDICAL wisdom of. mothers and grandmothers has always intrigued physicians. They can tell a child's fever with remarkable accuracy simply by touching the brow with the back of their hand. An axiom taught to medical students is: "When the grandmother says that the child has measles, the child has measles." Dr. Eugene Weinberg of South Africa learned from - the mothers of his small patients how to recognize an infant's cry and correlate it illness. Dr. Weinberg has collected more than 20 distinctive sounds than an infant makes, and he uses them for the recognition of certain types of illness. He has made a recording of these sounds in an effort to teach other doctors this added diagnostic insight. Children who cannot yet talk do make characteristic sounds that help the doctor and the nurses to recognize the needs of their little patient. • • • New radioisotopes are being found and used each year for the early diagnosis and treatment of malignant .diseases. Isotopes, made radioactive by atomic fission, have been used with particular success for the study of the thyroid gland. Iodine, made radioactive, has' also been used for the control of excess - activity of this gland. In a similar way, fluorine, when activated, is used for the detection of tumors of the bones. Dr. Giuliano Bruscagnin, at the Ospedali Civili Riuniti of Venice, has been using a new- artificial "element, tecnetium, for the early detection of tumors of the brain. I was privileged to witness the presentation of a large number of cases by Dr. Bruscagnin and Ws colleague. Dr. Pietro Avo- garo. The accuracy of diagnosis with this new element was astonishing. In the United States, many universities and medical centers ' are utilizing these byproducts of atomic energy for the scanning of the lungs, the liver, the brain, and other organs. . The early recognition of malignant disease means, of - course, early treatment and a greater possibility of cure. • •.»..

CO 1970, King Features Syndicate. Inc.) Cancer Research Tracks Beginners By DELOS SMITH UPI science Editor NEW YORK (UPI) -Among cancer's many mysteries is the cancer which never gets large enough to detect or, perhaps, disappears on its own while still a beginner yet produces progeny which kill. Dr. Frederick F. Holmes and Terry L. Fouts confronted cancer scientists with statistical proof that such cancers occur more often than, science now thinks. Their hope was to stimulate fruitful inquiry. They operate a tumor registry at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan. Since 1944 it has recorded cancers in 21,000 persons. Up to last year 686 were progeny cancers ; alone.\In many instances even autopsies could not turn up the parents. ..Most of the patients were dead within two years after discovery of their progeny cancers. But 27 survived or are surviving five years .or longer. The average survival time is 9.5 years. Fourteen of the 27 are now dead but only two died of cancer. "It must be admitted that the dilemma of the patient with metastatic cancer of unknown primary site is-> not an uncommon one," Holmes and Fouts said in Cancer, technical journal of the American Cancer Society. In some instances the parent or "primary" cancer remained too small to be detectable by Xray and. other detection techniques or by the autopsy surgeon, they speculated. Another possibility is that the original cancer was unrecognized as such and was removed or destroyed "even years before the appearance of metastatic lesions." They were thinking of cancers which begin as blue-black moles. "It would seem that any -surface of the body in contact with the environment, including, the gastrointestinal tract, might slough a primary tumor to the environment leaving no trace, but secondary tumors else^ where," they said. To them "the most intriguing possibility" was that the body had successfully defended against the primary tumor but was unable to extend the victory to secondary ones. "Spontaneous regression of cancer,- though certainly uncommon, is known to occur," they reminded. The 27 long-term survivors dramatize this possibility. "Considering the growth rate of even slow-growing tumors," they added, "one is forced to admit that host factors, immun­ ologic or hormonal, might be operative in causing temporary or permanent regression of the primary tumors."

The morning stars are Venus, Mars and Jupiter. _ The evening stars are Mercury and Saturn. . . Those born on this date are under the sign of Scorpio. Fench philosopher Francois Voltaire was born on Nov. 21, 1694, On this day in history:. In 1877 Thomas Edison announced the invention of what he called "the talking machine."

Cake, Candy Sent to POWs Washington (UPI) -Red Cross packages for American prisoners of war in North Vietnam will include fruit cake and hard candy this Christmas, the organization announced The North Vietnamese news agency had announced previously it was raising the. weight allowance for Christmas packages for POWs - to 11 pounds. It has allowed packages weighing 6.6 pounds since February. As a result, George M. Elsey, Red Cross president, said, Christmas items such as fruit cake and hard candy will be added to the gift packages it prepares and ships at the request of the families of the prisoners. QUIRKS IN THE NEWS z CHICAGO (UPI)-The Moe- cow Circus on lice gave one of its recent performances with a bit of a handicap —there was no ice. The show went on anyway, with skaters, acrobats, jugglers and aerialists performing on carpet. The only act that had to be canceled was the hockey playing Siberian bears — neither they nor the puck would slide on the carpet. The iceless ice show was caused by a malfunctioning ice- making machine at the International Amphitheatre. Only one performance of the six-day circus was affected. CESCO, Iowa (UPI)- The city council of this northeast Iowa city has given young people 60 days in which to prove they can behave without a curfew. The council, after a recent rise in cases of vandalism and drug use, considered imposing a 10:30 p.m. curfew for young people. However, a delegation of youths asked for 60 days to resolve the problem and. the council directed the Howard County attorney's office to report all problems which occur in that time. y-, urn--. -•riy — TOtf R80irf 5000 R <So, 1UE3 PYRfMDS RT Grzft.eevpr. <ne Roee f&vHLM ewes u« PLUMBS, QUINCES ,.

By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) -I always had difficulty getting ahead in the world, which seemed passing strange for someone with my towering intellect, surpassing abilities, boyish good looks and all- around charisma. But when I looked at myself in the light of a study by a group of Boston psychiatrists, I could see what has been holding me back. I sleep too much. According to a news release, from the Spring Air Mattress Co., the study shows that men who habitually sleep more than nine hours a night tend to be "introverted, passive and mildly depressed." But those who get along with six hours- of sleep or less are generally "efficient, hard-working and achievement oriented;" Conflicting Advice Hypothesis: If I cut three hours off my customary sack time,. I would soon be out in front with the achievers. Question: Should: I stay up three hours later or get up three hours earlier? That was not a decision to be made hastily. Decided to sleep on it. It might appear here that I was being irresolute. Not sol I was merely acting in accordance with another news release from the self-same mattress company. •"When a. man dealing with a problem elects to "sleep on it," it says, "there's every possibility that he may literally dream up a solution," Cites the case of inventor Elias Howe. Sewing Nightmare's Howe got the idea for a sewing machine needle while dreaming he was "about to be killed by a tribe of savages wielding spears with eye-shaped holes in their tips." Went to bed at usual hour and dreamed I was about to be killed by members of my wife's sewing club. 'Awoke the next morning after less than six hours sleep. Felt efficient, hard-working and achievement oriented. Great feeling! Said to wife, "Do you notice anything different about me this morning?" "Yeah. You look more bleary- eyed than usual." Began feeling introverted, passive and mildly depressed, again. Took short, three-hour nap. Still felt introverted, passive and mildly depressed, but eyes no longer bloodshot. MARCH OF EVENTS- ACNEW APPEARS SAFE ON NEXT GOP TICKET WHITE HOUSE BACKING APPEARS SOLID ENOUGH business today By DEAN C. MILLER UPI Business Editor NEW YORK (UPP -If you happen to be in the 29-34 age bracket, have 1 a mortgaged home, a wife and two children, a blue collar job paying up to $10,000 —you could be in financial trouble. . At least that's the profile of the average American verging on a money crisis, according to a survey of full; service bankers and credit counselors across J3tiglited C^orn C^t Jnl rop C^rea tei ernatioiia By LEONARD CURRY \ WASHINGTON (UPI) - The 1 ! blighted corn crop is not only 1 cutting income and increasing costs for U.S. farmers, it may ( have international implication^ that . could damage U.S. cori^ exports in the future. ,. i The U.S. Department of Agr^ culture now projects the corrj crop at 4,104 million bushels, down 15 per cent from July. The 1969 corn crop was 4,578 million bushels. The reduced feed grain supplies come when there is an in-, ventory of ZVz million more cattle, the calf crop is up 760 ,005 with fewer slaughters, and farrowing is up 15 per cent in 10 corn belt states. American meat producers are expected to slaughter at lighter weights to avoid the high cos.t of feed grains. This will lessen the domestic demand for corn, but there still will be a shortage. . There also is evidence that European cattle and hog farmers are taking similar measures, especially f a r m er s in countries that rely on corn from the United States. .1 LfOmplica tioni In addition to the dumping, Great Britain and other European importers of U.S. corn are trying to offset higher prices by encouraging. development of home - grown feed replacements such as wheat and barley. Britain recently increased price supports for livestock and other products by 65 per cent to encourage . self - sufficiency. Those payments now total $330 million, up from original 1970 appropriations of $200 million. The money will help British farmers meet the increased prices for .feed grains, caused not only by the U.S. corn blight, but by a drop in barley production in the United Kingdom., But livestock operators are not the only recipients of the higher payments. David L. Hume, the U.S. agricultural at­ tache in London, says, "Restoring confidence in the future seems to be th main purpose behind tte higher guarantees for wheat and barley. "These increases are. aimed at encouraging the sowing of winter wheat, now at its peak, and at giving more incentives for sowing barley," Hume says. the country. If you have seven creditors or more and a debt- load amounting to as .much as one-half your annual income, you already are inbig trouble. This type of man gets into trouble primarily because mortgage payments are too high for his income and he lives a bit over his head," said an official of the National Bank of Detroit. An apartment superintendent in New York, 34, a wife and two children, earning $8,900 and rent free, is in a bind according to Chase Manhattan Bank. Payments are eating up 30 per cent of his salary. He's buying not one'but two television sets on time and paying for a European vacation on the installment plan; among other things. The Merchants Natinal Bank of Aurora, 111. is worried about a local shop foreman who's in hi early 30's, makes $9,400 and has four children. His income debt amounts to 27 per cent because of a wife who's a compulsive shopper. This family has a new car, new color TV, new refrigerator, new washer and new freezer. Also a dim financial future. Once personal debt sets in the "cash crashers" fall into "a pattern. They miss payments on the mortgage and installment purchases, get loans cover up and then miss payments or default on the loans. At worst they file personal bankrupcy, a trend today. This is a particularly ripe year for budget -problems. In recessionary periods there is loss of overtime,, the-supplementary second job and even the primary job. i Spin Agnew His job \ looks safe By HENRY CATHCAKT Central Press Washington Correspondent TFTASHINGTON—That Vice President Spiro Agnew is in dan- ; W ger of being bumped from the GOP ticket in 1970 is simply hard to believe. | This • is the near unanimous view of Republican regulars here and they make a sound case for their point of view. In the first place President Nixon wa3 the guiding." political hand behind nearly- every move his vice president made in the fall campaign. . The initial Agnew attack on New York's maverick Republican Sen. Charles Goodell was dictated directly from the White House. The vice president's strong attack on the Scranton Commission's report on campus disorders came only after a trans-Atlantic phone call from President Nixon, who was touring Europe at the time. The very concept of making the 1970,congressional campaign a mandate against "radical liberalism" originated with Nixon and his top political strategists. If the . Agnew campaign lost some of its appeal by late. October, this was not to be unexpected. As Nixon discovered during his term as vice president, a partisan party spokesman will, make political enemies.. The kind of exposure Agnew obtained can last only so long without some form of backlash. * * * * • SOME DON'T LIKE HIM—It is true that Agnew is no particular favorite of such White House aides as Donald Rumsfeld, the director of the Office of Economic Opportunity, and John Erlichman, the presidential counsel. But thus far in his presidency President Nixon has shown no tendency to turn to the moderates and liberals on his staff, for guidance on political campaign strategy. The press speculation that Agnew could be replaced on the 1972 ticket originated at least in part with a White House adviser, but that adviser has never been known for his political !)n- fluence in the past and there is no reason to believe he was. speaking for the President. Possibly the crowning blow' to this speculation, however, is the wide-spread following Agnew has developed among GOP conservatives. . "If they think there is a backlash against Agnew, just let them watch the backlash among Republicans if there is a serious move to replace him," one veteran Republican congressman declared when he was told of the dump-Agnew speculation. | • STUDENT CAMPAIGNERS failed to materialize as a political force for Democratic liberals this fall. In fact. Republican spokesman claimed GOP candidates received far more volunteer support from students than did Democratic candidates. ' " One report noted that James Buckley, the Conservative Party winner for the Senate from. New York, had more than twice the number, of student volunteers as were working for Rep. Richard Ottinger, his Democratic op- GOP Thinks I ponent. , , . Limited surveys indicate this trend could hold u en s , 1 true for youthful voters as well, should the 18-. Back Party year-old vote survive court tests. Said a young Republican spokesman of the GOP national committee :" - We like to think that the type of young person who plans to vote Republican will make it to the polls. I'm not so sure I the Democrats will be able to 'turn on' the campus groups from which- they get much of their support." Foreign News Commentary Indefinite Continuation Cease Fire is By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign New Analyst. Speculation is mounting that a new chance for Mideast peace may be in the making. On the political side it springs from the bloodless coup which ousted the extremist leadership of Syria, the cautious efforts of the successor government to the late President Gamal Abdel Nasser to establish itself and the belief that the revolutionary Arab governments must be |Wall Street Chatter NEW YORK (UPI>-The GM strike, "by cooling the economy and permitting an easier money policy, (will) actually prove beneficial for the investment outlook," according to Argus Research Corp. The company says that with bonds showing "a sharp drop in offerings" for December,-the prospective supply-demand situation points to "a substantial decline in long- term interest rates ... which should be highly beneficial to the stock market." ;'j .'Even with a recovery in 1971 r the year will end up with"unemployed labor and capital, resources," F.I. du Pont, Glore-j Forgan"4 Co. predicts. But th'«* company says the moderation, in private demands for credit and the continued easy policy',' by the Fed "will combine to drive long term rates lower.* 1 * preoccupied .with internal affairs for the foreseeable future. Militarily the picture also has changed. The take-over by Syrian strongman Lt. Gen. Hafez Assad, the firing of Iraqi Vice President Hardan Takriti, a leading hawk, and King Hussein's continuing difficulties with the Palestinian commandos has meant the virtual collapse, of the Arab eastern front command. The commandos are more concerned with Hussein's forces at the moment than with Israel. ReopenCanal On the Suez front, both the Egyptians and the Israelis have improved their positions, so much so that now in the overall speculation is considered the possibility of a withdrawal of The Alexander Hamilton Institute, Inc., warns investors not to forget "the Damocles sword of the Middle East and Southeast Asia." Nevertheless, the company believes "the pulses outnumber the minuses" and it urges the adoption of "a constructive investment approach—although selectivity is essential." -J •• ''As a whole, the stock market appears to us to be headed higher," Filor Bullard 4 Smyth believes,. The company admits it is difficult to drum up enthusiasm in "a dull, lifeless market" but the company says "once stocks start climbing on volume, the enthusiasm will come in heavy waves." both sides from the canal banks and the first steps be taken toward reopening of the water link between Asia and Europe. Politically and;"militarily present circumstances seem to offer an opportunity for serious peace efforts. ' , General Assad is rated a moderate, who might adopt a less militant anti-Western stand and be less insistent than his predecessors on a continuing war with Israel. He is friendly toward the commandos but would take them out of politics. U.S. Relations In Cairo, Premier Mahraoud Fawzi of the United Arab Republic has put together a cabinet of 32 ministers, including four deputy premiers. Three are assigned entirely tc internal affairs, agriculture, petroleum and mineral wealth and public services such as health care, education and transportation. J There has been some slight indication that the new Cairo regime also desires better 'relations with the United States. So far as the commandos are concerned, they must be reckoned with but efforts so far to weld them into a cohesive force have been unsuccessful and their actions against the Israelis must be rated little more than pinpricks. The fact that both the Israelis and the Egyptians have agreed to a rather indefinite continuation of the cease-fire also must be rated encouraging There's a little more to AMMOPHOS fertilizers than just NPK. There's a little calcium oxide, magnesium, iron oxide, manganese, boron, copper, molybednum, zinc, and more than just a little sulfer in every bag or ton of AMMO-PHOS Fertilizers.
