No. 1 Postman of Nation Prepares For New Duties MADISON, Wis. (UPI) — Wisconsin Tax Commissioner John A. Gronouski intends to begin preparing for his new role as the nation's No. 1 postman—if the phone ever stops ringing. There were smiles at the Gronouski home Monday after President Kennedy Medic Tells Of Coronary Disease Study NEW YORK (AP)-In a carefully watched group of Americans, those with high cholesterol levels not only develop more coronary disease, but they develop it more frequently—and it leads more often to a fatal heart attack. That is one verdict from a study of 5,127 men and women in Framingham, Mass., reported today by Dr. William B. Kannel of the National Heart Institute. It may not mean that cholesterol itself is the culprit, he said. But as cholesterol—one kind of blood fat—goes, so go other blood fat measurements. Threshold Passed From this, said Dr. Kannel, you can conclude that "in a population that has been saturated with fat some threshold (of safety) has been passed." In the Framingham study, about 1 in 10 of the men between the ages of 30 and 60 have developed some coronary disease in the last 10 years. Of those who have the first signs or symptoms of-coronary disease, 3 nor cent die within the first three weeks, 55 per cent of them suddenly. If there is a set of suggestions a doctor might offer a patient. Kannel said, they might be something like this: Get up and exercise, eat a less rich diet, less of foods with saturated fats, smoke fewer cigarettes; and if you have high blood pressure, get it lowered, and if you are overweight, lose weight.

She had to start saying farewell to her school mates on her first dav of classes. The first thing Gronouski plans to do, he said, is meet with Sidney Bishoop, acting postmaster general, to "get a basic briefing. I've got a lot to learn and am looking forward to learning." Gronouski will be the fifth postmaster general appointed from Wisconsin and the first person of Polish ancestry named to the Cabinet. He said he hoped he was appointed "because they thought I could do a good job," and not because his nomination would attract Polish votes. He said he worked during Kennedy's 1960 campaign "by licking a lot of postage stamps." The stocky tax commissioner, who stands 5 feet nine inches and weighs 200 pounds, said he would join Pierre Salinger's wing of the administration's physical fitness program. Born in the small Marinette County town of Dunbar on Oct. 26. 1919, Gronouski grew up in Oshkosh and attended the Oshkosh State College for three years before transferring to the Univer- city of Wisconsin. There he earned his bachelor of arts degree in economics. After leaving military service, he returned to Wisconsin where he received his masters degree in economics and public finance, and later earned a doctorate in the same field. He taught at the University of Maine and at Wayne University, and was director of the Federation of State Tax Administrators before coming here. He married the, former Mary Louise Metz of Madison in 1948. They have two daughters, Stacy, and Julie, 7. During the war, he served as a navigator with the Eighth Air Force and flew 24 combat missions over Europe. He was forced to bail out from his crippled plane on one mission and was one of three from a crew of 10 that survived. Gronouski was rescued by a British destroyer in the English Channel. "I have always been lucky," he said.

ILL., TUESDAY, SEPT. 10, 1M3 SEC. 2 PAGE 9; Vinson Opens Drive to Block: New Discrimination Measure WASHINGTON rUPI) - Rep. Carl Vinson, D-Ga.. one of Congress* most influential members, has launched a drive to block a Pentagon directive placing segregated communities off-limits to servicemen. Vinson, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, was reported Monday to be drafting legislation aimed at halting off- base anti-segregation action by military commanders. Such legislation would stand a good chance of passage with the backing of the veteran Georgia Democrat, one of the lending congressional authorities on military affairs. Even short of enactment, the measure's mere introduction by Vinson rould throw n block into the Pentagon's latest move against discrimination. Issues Directive The directive, issued by Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara July 26, grew out of the so-called "Gescll Report." which held that discrimination had been fairly well abolished in the military but that Negro servicemen and their families often ran into discriminatory practices in their home life away from the base. McNamara's directive ordered base commanders to do what they could locally to alleviata these problems, and indirectly authorized them, in extreme cases and with advance consent of the civrlian service secretaries, to rule segregated facilities off-lim* its to base personnel. Southern members of Congress generally hit the ceiling at news of the directive. Rep. Robert L. F. Sikes, D- Fbi.. said Monday that Vinson shortly would introduce a bill to "set aside" the limited authority granted base commanders to crack down on private businesses in their areas.
