THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE By LESTER L- COLEMAN, M.U. THURSDAY, MA UC11 4, 1!>7I Stroke: Reason & Recovery IS IT now possible to recover completely from a stroke? Mrs. N. V.L., Va. Dear Mrs. L.: Remarkable strides have been made in the rehabilitation of people who have suffered a stroke. Recovery depends entirely on the severity of the con-. dition and the part of the brain involved. . In general, the term "stroke" refers to some interference with the blood supply Dr. Coleman to. the brain. Medically, the stroke is referred to as a C.V.A.', or cerebrovascu­ lar accident. The all-inclusive • term of "stroke" is used to describe 1) a broken blood vessel in the brain (hemorrhage). 2 1 a' clot (thrombus j, "which clogs a blood vessel, ior 3) a spasm of the artery that brings blood to the brain. The brain itself is divided into many tiny segments. One area is responsible for hearing, another for sight, others for balance, for speech, for movement of the hands and • feet. The symptoms pf stroke vary, depending on which particular blood vessel is involved and where it .normally brings bipod to the brain. It is interesting that in a right - handed person the speech area is situated In the left side of the brain. In a left- handed person, the speech area is located in the right side of the brain. This becomes an important guide to the doctor in deciding- what part of the brain is affected by a stroke. Today, immediate and intensive care greatly enhances the chances of recovery of the stroke victim. He is no longer allowed to'vegetate. " Besides receiving medical attention, the patient is encouraged to embark on a program of re - education of his muscles and speech while nature itself is working its own wonders. Tiny new blood- vessels seem to spring up in the area of the artery that had the vascular accident. Through these small blood vessels, blood is brought to the part of the brain that is deficient in order to help .in a more rapid and complete recovery. Dr. Howard Rusk, of the New York University Medical Center, is referred to as the "f at he r" of rehabilitative medicine. Many of his "sons"-' arc now dispersed all over the world, replacing despair with hope, for stroke victims. ! Programs established by Dr. Rusk and his colleagues are aimed at giving physical and emotional support to these courageous patients and encouraging them to once again become -happier, functioning members of society. Massive educational campaigns aimed at the prei-en- tibn of strokes warn that overweight, tobacco, and high. blood pressure are contributing factors. With planning, their hazards can be reduced. • • • • SPEAKING OF YOUR HEALTH: Remember your drug allergies when giving your medical history to a new physician. .

Countries of the Com? monwealth and the English- speaking world rest on the foundations of British law.

Now, the country's law makers are under increasing pressure to look beyond their own shores for a remedy— to an innovation adopted by Britain's most successful "colony," the United States. The system called for is a . Small Cairns Court— one that is inexpensive and one that 'can give justice. The idea has been kicked from organization to organization for the past few years, and it was only after a report was published by' the Consumer. Council (Britain's answer to Ralph Nader) that politicians started taking the idea seriously. Early in February Michael M e a c h e r, a parliamentary member of the opposition Labor party, introduced a Mil calling for a Small Claims Court to be incorporated in the British legal structure. His move was not officially backed by the Labor party and' the chances of the bill Fresh Air and Water For Future Generations? Private.members bills are taken as jokes; but then- are not always taken seriously. Meacher claims that by : taking the idea 'into the House of Commons there is a good chance of it bejng accepted by the next Parliament ... or the next. Based on the American example, Jhe whole organization of a small claims court would be geared to the working man's schedule. The judge does his own questioning if the parties are not legally represented and he does not insist on formally, introduced documents.. The purpose is to settle the case on the spot. Somtimes this means that a persons with a sound case is encouraged to settle , for less than ' his due rather than involve the court in (jomplex legal issues. But it is' generally thought that this is preferable to delay and possible escalating expenses. If the-proposals become law. .the majesty of the law will lose nothing. . Things are most majestic when they work well and the ordinary person can see them working well. TELEVISION SCHEDULE O o o is Kill By KATHLEEN NEUMEYER LOS ANGELES (UPI)- The way Very! Alexander sees it, somebody has to do somthingto ave the environment, or there won't be an environment left to save. * "I don't want ' to be . an alarmist, but there has to be some concern if we're going to have fresh air'and water; for . future generations," he said. And as president of a chain of supermarkets, Alexander was in a position to do something. His ten markets were selling phosphate -filled detergents which were killing the streams and throwaway bottles and containers which were killing the streams and throwaway bottles and containers which were wasting natural resources and littering the landscape. "And my daughter Christine, who is a student at the University of California at Davis, pointed out to me that we buy advertising space inthe ,newspapers and on the'radio every week," Alexander said. "She .;, asked . if I couldn't do somthing with it to help." Markets All-Ecology So Alenxaders Market s,founded in 1919, went all-' ecology last month. - > "We've been gratified and pleased with the.response'from our customers, and from other people's customers too," Alexander laughed. j v "Customers from other stores have asked us for our informational material so they can take it back to their own market managers. "We're taking an informational approach. We're letting our customers *now what effect these products have on the environment' and letting them decide for themselves. We're not acting as censors. | "The only products we have banned are some insecticide strips which were ° harmful to humans and some fertilizers with DDT." Information Obtained Alexanders' staff obtained information on the phosphate- content of each of the soap products sold in the stores and green and white tags indicating whifh were "ecology-preferred products" were posted on the shelves. . . The chain stopped packaging its meat a%d §ggs in plastic containers! and went, back to biodegrdable natural pulp. "It's not as nice-looking in the case, but we hope our customers, will forgive us for that," he said. The chain printed the 'words "Make Ecology your Bag" on its shopping bags, and launched a letter-writing campaign to urge congressmen to fight pollution. "Our hope is that if people will apply . their purchasing power to this problem, we can have evolution instead •'. of pollution,' * Alexander said. 6:00 (B) Dick Van Dyke Early Report- Big News Eyewitness Newt SD What'i New QD Adventures 4:30 Daniel Boone Daniel b-uys two indentured Ijrish girls at'an auction.

Thus, a further small decline in. total net income is now indicated for 1971, even though the farmer's income situation probably will ' improve as the year progress-" es," .. •' r Rex F. Daly, bead of the department's .economic and statis- - tical analysis division, delivered, that forecast without using any specific figures to indicate how far the projected "small decline" might go. Other figures" used by Daly and other economists would appear to point to a drop of as much as $500 million in net- farm income this year. Daly himself said gross income was likely to rise by about $1 billion, while another economist said estimates of farm costs indicated they would rise by ' around $1.5 billion. On the basis of these individual income - cost projections, net farm income in 1971 could be forecast at around $15.3 billion compared with $15.8 billion in 1970 and $16.2 billion in 1969. But it may not be that simple, Daly said, explaining in an interview why he limited himself to the loose phrase "small decline" in his official summary last week. "There's a .tremendous un. certainty about the 1971 crops," Daly said. "And in view of the possibility of another outbreak of corn blight, we felt we needed to * be a little, cautious." regiment.
