Obese Can Eat Atvay Pounds IOWA CITY - A new method of losing weight by "eating it away" is being tried at The University of Iowa. As described by Dr. Dennis R. Brightwell. resident physician in the U of I Department of Psychiatry, the plan enables patients to avoid many of the unpleasant aspects of dieting. Instead, they learn through behavior modification to pay close attention to what they eat. and why they eat as they do. Dr. Brightwell describes the procedure in the April issue of Postgraduate Medicine. The system involves only five 20-minute periods of instruction from a physician, after which the patient applies the principles at home and returns for follow-up checks. "The purpose of this program is not to restrict the patient from anything but to help him learn to take responsibility for what he eats before he consumes it," Dr. Brightwell says. "Practically speaking, there is really nothing that cannot be eaten and there are no specifically forbidden foods." "A discriminatory stimulus (hunger) leads to a behavior (eating) that results in an event (relief of hunger) ... the next time the same stimulus occurs, similar behavior follows more readily." Brightwell emphasizes the importance of various stimuli — often unconsciously recognized — such as environment and boredom. For example, if meals are eaten in the kitchen, "the setting of the kitchen itself can become a stimulus to eating.'' To modify this pattern, the patient is urged to keep a thorough record of the time of eating, type and amount of food eaten, and any stimuli influencing eating throughout the day. Weight reduction clubs are to an extent behavior modification programs, says Dr. Brightwell. As with the U of I program, the patient is praised for the weight he loses. But the clubs also berate those who gain weight. which Dr. Brightwell says makes some so discouraged that they give up. The U of I program'does not involve scolding. Instead, the doctor and patient look at the record and try to figure out what went wrong. Essential to the program is the reward system, comments the U of I physician. Rewards can involve money or whatever else would be a worthwhile goal for the individual patient — anything except food. The rewards should be spaced so that they are received after a small amount of weight, such as two to five pounds, is lost. Patients who ,, try to lose ten or more pounds before rewarding themselves can get discouraged, Dr. Brightwell points out, because they have to wait much longer before they can feel they have accomplished something. In an attempt to disrupt situational stimuli involved, the patient is instructed to use a different place setting — a plate smaller than the one accustomed to, a special glass for caloric liquids, utensils which are different, and "the gaudiest, most unusual looking placemat he can find." No food should remain on the table during the meal. The patient may have second helpings, but he should go to the food, dish it up, and put all food away before he starts to eat again. Brightwell says, "Many patients are unaware that they almost always have had some food in sight which acts as a stimulus to eating." When unable to eat at home, some patients have packed a meal and taken it along. Others take their place setting or set a monetary limit on what they eat. The results of the program at the U of I compare closely with results reported by other investigators, notes Dr. Brightwell. At the U of I, 15 patients under the care of four physicians began the program. Eight have either completed a one-year program or have reached their goal; three have not yet completed a six-month program and are still in treatment. Weights at the beginning of treatment ranged from 138 to 250 pounds, with an average of 193 pounds. Of the eight who completed treatment, average weight loss was 22.6 pounds, with a range of 9 to 46 pounds. The positive reinforcement and lack of criticism in the patient-physician relationship. Dr. Brightwell feels, lead to a positive outlook and an expectation of success, which he says are new ideas to most obese patients. He emphasizes that the program is not a cure-all, nor does it work for everyone. But the fact that nothing is really restricted "most people find . . . easier to tolerate than rules and regulations about what they must avoid." Jailed After Conviction on Traffic Counts AUDUBON - A Hamlin man is serving, 1,1 days in the county jail here after he was convicted of four traffic violations. He is Derald Lyons, who was arrested several weeks ago by Audubon police. They charged him with speeding and failure to obey a police signal on March 14. He was found guilty on both counts after a trial before District Court Magistrate Joe Sklenar. Three days later the police charged Lyons with speeding and driving without a license. He pleaded guilty to the license charge and was sentenced to five days in jail on that violation. He also was found guilty on the speeding charge on March 17. He was given two-day jail sentences on each of the speeding and failure to obey a police signal counts. Police said Lyons was convicted in 1972 of driving with an expired driver's license but had continued to Flooding Widespread; Cornfields Are Lakes By The Associated Press Iowa cornfields became lakes Sunday and streams and rivers in central and southern Iowa rose above bankful following continued heavy rainfall through the central regions of the state. The Mississippi River , which crested about one-half foot above flood stage Saturday night at Davenport, was above flood stage from just below the Quad Cities to Keokuk with the crest reaching the Muscatine area late Sunday. Keokuk was expected to receive the crest sometime late Monday. Two major north-south arteries in eastern Iowa—U.S. highways 61 and 67—were closed Sunday where they cross the flood-swolen Wapsipinicon River. Route 67 was closed between Clinton and Folletts, and U.S. 61 was closed south of DeWitt. Upstream and on the Illinois side of the river, Illinois Highway 84 was open Sunday after the crest passed downstream. That highway, which runs par- allel to the Mississippi, had been closed for several days because of high water. Major flooding was reported along the North Branch of the Skunk River from Interstate 80 west of Grinnell to Sigourney and on to the point where the north Skunk meets the south Skunk southwest of Sigourney. Considerable flooding was also reported along the Iowa River south tjf the Coralville Dam to Wapello and on to the Mississippi River. The National Weather Service said the Raccoon River was to crest Monday at Van Meter about six and one-half feet over flood stage. Runoff from already-saturated fields added to the flooding as water from the cornfield-lakes made its way to river basins. Farmers in many areas expressed concern that they would have to replant crops which had either washed away or been killed by the standing water. The week-long rain also virtually halted planting of soybeans, one of Iowa's major cash grain crops, throughout the state. Valedictorian — Jeff Abbott, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Abbott of Carroll, graduated as the class valedictorian at Iowa School for the Deaf in Council Bluffs on Saturday. He received the Detweiler Cup, the school's highest award for scholarship, and the Most Valuable Staffer Award for his work in setting type for the school's newspaper. Abbott also received the Shoenthal scholarship to continue his education and an award from the National Fraternal Society for the Deaf, which is given to a student showing outstanding qualities of school citizenship and leadership. He plans to attend Galleudet College in Washington, D.C. Beef Supplies Seen Increasing WASHINGTON (AP) World beef supplies for the consumer market may go up five per cent this year and soar another 20 to 25 per cent in 1975. the Agriculture Department said today. "This will reverse the very tight red meat supply situation that has prevailed the past two years," the department's Foreign Agricultural Service said in a weekly report. drive since then without getting a license. J. T. Boston of Van Cleave, la.. near v Marshalltown. was found guilty of speeding after a trial before Magistrate Sklenar. He is a contractor and had been doing work for the telephone company when he was charged by the highway patrol with driving 90 miles an hour on Highway 71 north of Audubon. He was clocked by an airplane. He was fined $70. Craig Schmidt, an Audubon high school student, was found guilty of speeding eight miles an hour above the speed limit. The violation. Police Chief Arnold Krauel testified, occurred just east of the junior high school. Krauel said that after he took a speed reading of Schmidt's car with a portable radar unit and went on to give Schmidt the'citation he found Schmidt's car parked in the driveway of his girl friend's house, which is several blocks from where the radar check was made. Schmidt testified that his car had not been driven the morning he was charged because it failed to start the previous evening when he had been visiting his girl friend and he left it there overnight. He was accused of speeding about 8 a.m. the following morning. ' Schmidt was found guilty and fined $20, but immediately filed notice of appeal to district court. Nick H. Jensen of Audubon, has been fined $100 in magistrate court for reckless driving. Elmer G. Carlson of Audubon, has been charged with injury to a road, and appeared last week before Magistrate Sklenar. He was given 14 days to secure an attorney and appear again in court. Carlson was charged by the Audubon County sheriff after the sheriff was called to investigate damage to a county road bridge east of Audubon. A charge of possession of a controlled substance which was filed several weeks ago against Norman Spencer of Des Moines, was dismissed here in magistrate court for lack of evidence. Spencer is a former Audubon resident. Dean Bladt, 19, of Elk Horn, was arrested early Saturday at Kimballton, and is being held in Audubon County jail for criminal trespass. Bond was set in magistrate court at $100. Demos Open Hearings on '74 Platform DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)— The Iowa Democratic Platform Committee has been urged to adopt planks calling for a $65 million annual increase in funding for highway construction in Iowa and retention of the state's single-factor corporation income tax. Those proposals were set forth by the Iowa Good Roads Association and the Iowa Taxpayers Association as the committee began a series of hearings Saturday to formulate the party's 1974 state platform. C.W. Sloan, president of the roads association, said money designated for roads has been diverted to other uses at both state and federal levels, and Iowa highways are rapidly wearing out. He urged the Democrats to consider these proposals which he said have been endorsed by the Iowa Good Roads Association: —Increase the state tax on gasoline by 3 cents a gallon and on diesel fuel by 4 cents a gallon, and reinstate the allocation of 10 per cent of sales tax revenue to highways. • UCT (Continued From Page II chairman of the award committee, presented the award during the joint grand opening of the convention.

Gas Supplies to Be Cut for Large Users DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)— An alternate fuel must be found quickly for large consumers of natural gas in Iowa, a top state energy official warns. Maurice Van Nostrand, chairman of the Iowa Commerce Commission, said Saturday that Northern Natural Gas Co. of Omaha, which provides natural gas for 65 per cent of the state, will start reducing supplies this winter to its' larger customers. "And by 1978, interruptible customers will not be able to get a single cubic foot of natural gas," he said. Interruptable customers are industrial plants, schools, hospitals and power companies which buy large amounts of gas. In times of heavy demand, such as severe winter weather, their supplies of natural gas are cut off to assure sufficient fuel for home heating. Van Nostrand, addressing the Iowa Associated Press Broadcast Association, said as far as he can determine, no federal energy officials have given any thought to developing an alternate source of fuel for customers who will be denied natural gas.
