OL' MAN HIGHWAY THEY USED TO SAY that 01' Man River, he 'jes keeps rollin' WeU, if one will observe closely, he will find that 01* Man River . . .whether it is a wide one like the Wabash or White, or Miss- issinawav . .etc; doesn't roU along SO FAST anymore, except of course when there is an unusual amount of rain.. .and the force of the 'extra' volume of water.. .keeps them rollin*. TODAY. . .as it were, it seems that 01* Man River collects JUNK, in fact in some rivers, if one will travel up and down for several miles, one will find items in.that river that society should be ashamed to throw away.. .anyplace except a stream of. water. WE HAVEN'T had a good, look at the Wabash lately, but we're betting that she has her share, and others along with her, down to the CREEKS we all like to see.. .and sometimes fish. WELL, there's one thing we can't blame 01' Man River.. .or his nephews and nieces for, and that's the accumulation of junk .. .often found piled up in certain spots near the shore in shallow water. Streams are not particular where they dump the little and 'man made' junk tossed into them by the so-called sportsmen . . .who fish their waters. Anyplace will do, just so the water is free of the litter. TAKE A GOOD LOOK sometime, when you have a little time to wander, see the worn out tires, tin cans, bottles, old papers; you name it, it's there] WHY? Because people just don't give a d....n anymore where they deposit such trash, so long as they get ride of it! IF YOU TRAVEL a bit down a stream, you can find the above mentioned, plus maybe bleach bottles, old vinegar bottles, ketsup bottles, old fruit jars, a weed killer can, piece of synthetic foam, etc. People just don't give a thought to WHERE they dump trash; it is lb their way at times. . .and instead of using the facilities we have, they take it out in the car or truck, look around for a likely spot, usually near a creek or body of water, and toss it over, with a backward glance over the shoulder to see whether or not they are being observed. THEN TOO, if you will look a little closer.. .sometimes.. .you will be really surprised to note this litter in spots one would never dream of finding it in. Debse woods, not often checked by anyone, will sometimes shock you with the amount of litter and junk 'on the inside', where people don't see it, but people HAVE BEEN THERE, according to the farmer and conservation man, because the JUNK is the EVIDENCE. It will do no good for local, state and federal government to SPEND MILLIONS to 'clean things up', unless the source of it all is CLEANED UP! That source is MAN. . .so bent on his pleasures. . .he don't give a tinker's dam...n....what he is doing to the countryside, just so he is rid of the garbage and litter! ONE MIGHT EVEN SAY that the river or small stream, takes a page from the notebook, of man, regarding this littering; for they disregard what man wants.. .and deposit the litter and junk S 'ght where it belongs, on the bank of the river or stream some- nes, where it can be seen, and the evidence cannot be disregarded. , THANKSGIVING - THEN CHRISTMAS WELL, it has been a week since we celebrated THANKSGIVING and we are headed peU-ineU for CHRISTMAS! They are two highlights on the calendar. They are similar in one way at least. On Thanksgiving, the theme is GRATITUDE. We are reminded of our blessings. We are called upon to give thanks for nature's bounty. On CHRISTMAS we celebrate the Savior's birth. We give thanks to the Lord, are mindful of thepoor. We have smiles and cheer perhaps not shown on other days of the year. BUT THE DAY AFTER BOTH, we are tack into the old moods, forgetting the two days and what they stand for."

C. LICHTENBERG. (C 1970. Klne Features Syndicate. Inc.) Dr. Coleman I HAVE been having mild heart trouble. My doctors insist that I must have had rheumatic heart disease when I was young. I am now 52. No one in the family can recall any such illness. . Could it have been overlooked ? Mrs. J. R. T., Ind. Dear Mrs. T.: Rheumatic heart disease is one of the severe compll- catlons of rheumatic fever during childhood. Almost always it is c a u s e d by the streptococcus germ and may follow a bout of infection in the tonsils, or may occur after scarlet fever. It is not unusual for a mild attack of rheumatic fever, and even rheumatic heart disease, to be overlooked completely. Sometimes there is the possibility that the condition was known, but then just forgotten. Modern methods of diagnosis - are accurate enough for your doctor to know that your present condition may be cased on rheumatic fever in childhood. The speculation about this Is not nearly as important as the fact that you are being treated and observed by your doctor. - * . * * Does the expression "I must have a tapeworm" have any validity for people who eat excessively? Mrs. S. P., W. Va. Dear Mrs. P.: Any excuse for overeating satisfies the guilt of the "food sinner." Tapeworms do, however, occur in the human and create intestinal symptoms.
