Doctor treats Heart Ailment *2i ... j ^K , Dr. Lamb By LAWRENCE LAMB, MB. Dear Dr. Lamb — I am terribly depressed because I've been toM by my doctor that noihing can be done for my heart attacks caused by ather­ osclerosis. I can hardly believe this. I was hospitalized last year lot about three weeks and given all kinds obtests, then about iwo weeks later I had another attack. The first one occurred in Bible class and the second one in church. I didn't have any undue excitement of any kind previous to either attack. What is your opinion, doctor? I've been on some medicine for high blood pressure, and also Coumadin to keep my blood from clotting. I have blood tests and checkups regularly. The doctor said on my last examination that my blood teste, blood pressure and electrocardiogram were all satisfactory, but I'm afraid to move for fear I'll have another heart attack. Dear Reader — Your doctor is doing something about your heart attacks. This is what the medicine to treat your blood pressure and the Coumadin to prevent blood coagulation is for. He's studying the function of your heart and circulatory system to regulate your medicine and, if necessary, institute other measures. I'm sure that what your doctor tried to explain to you was that the disease itself, the ath­ erosclerosis, was difficult to treat, and the damage that had already been done to your heart from the previous attack was there to stay. This doesn't mean, however, that you can't make a good recovery or that there is nothing at all that can be done to help you maintain (jaLesbuffl Recjist^Maij, Galesburg, III. .... Tuesday, July 10, A97%_ B Informal Tone' Can Be Detriment to TV Newscast By RICK t)U BROW HOLLYWOOD (UP!) — The trend toward informality in many television newscasts has its positive points, but among its negative aspects is a major new menace to good taste: Inappropriate, chatty transitions between certain stories. _ Television In Review your health in the best 'condition. Diet Important Your diet is important. If you have any excess weight, it can (be eliminated by a sensible program. You should be on a moderately restricted fat diet, restricted in saturated fats and [limited in cholesterol. By proper diet, often you can reverse the fatty deposits that develop in the arteries. This has been demonstrated in animals. You can't eliminate the scare in the heart muscle or some of the scarring that develops in the ar Iteries when they've been damaged from fatty deposits, or the calcium deposits that gradually develop around where the fatty deposits are in the walls of the arteries. But, I would like to stress that there are things which can be done. Anyone with a severe cardiac problem is usually able to do more if the body weight is decreased. It's very simple. The body must work harder to move 2(10 pounds across the room than it does to move 100. This means there's less work for the heart and circulation to move a small body weight around. There are oiher beneficial effects too. The blood pressure is often significantly lowered if a person has any excess fat and elminates it. Some Assurance It's important for people who've had a heart attack to be given some reassurance. Many people do make excellent recoveries. I know that it's common to sit around and worry about what may happen after I suspect that viewers around the nation are cringing more and more lately when newscasters, trying hard to fit in with the informal trend, struggle painfully to make tactful, natural transitions between serious stories and light ones, upbeat reports and sad ones. To the public eye, people like the various anchormen or sports and weather reporters are the immediate objects of scrutiny, and some of them have survived well their tests in the informal setups. But many have not, and in most cases it is the format imposed on them, and not the reporters themselves, deserving of blame. Some television executives have made it a lot harder for news broadcasters by going all the way with the informal format when not everyone is equipped to handle it. And the reason they are not is that a successful format of this 1 type relies in great part on two requisites: That the people carrying it off are truly witty ad-libbers and, furthermore, that they are naturally sparkling conversationalists in gen eraV It is no crime that a number of newscasters are simply not the personal taste and quality used in an insensitive way as notable in both these respects, of the newscaster, and this is a transitions to weather news or sometimes even irt either. There they are, indeed, doing their best out there on the firing line, but if they are going to continue in this vein they could do us, and themselves, and the cause of good taste, a large favor by paying the closest possible attention to their transitions. For these conversational, informal transitions play a crucial part in the tone of a newscast. They clue us in, among other things, on major factor in whether we will stay tuned or switch stations. Line Has To Be Right It is simply not enough to be glib or even come up with a good line. The line has to be the right line for the situation, and not just clever in itself. Otherwise, informal format or not, it is best merely to shut up as an ad-libber and proceed routinely to the next story. Particularly, for instance, when (reports of storm disasters are Taylor, Burton: Farther Apart LOS ANGELES (UPI) - Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, already divided by a continent since their break-up, will get farther apart, at least temporarily. Miss Taylor, currently in seclusion here, plans to visit relatives in Honolulu, a spokesman for the actress said Monday. Burton, staying at his lawyer's Long Island beach home at Quogue, N. Y., is planning to fly to Europe for a film festival in Moscow, the lawyer said. Miss Taylor also plans to head for Europe later, her spokesman said. She is due in Rome by July 22 to start work on a movie there. See 'Dr. Lamb'- (Continued on Page 13) Horoscope Grain Export Deals: Too Much for U.S. Economy? that is then presented in lighthearted, bubbly fashion. Despite all the hustle and bustle that goes into putting a video newscast together, it succeeds in the end only if it achieves a certain delicate balance of tone, aside from the news content. And in the current period of newscast informality, off-the-cuff transition remarks have become a definite factor in creating that tone. They can make a news program; or break it.

By United Press International i Americans, both as consumers and taxpayers, are paying for last year's wheat sale to the Soviet Union, a congressional investigating agency reported Monday. The General Accounting Office (GAO) said not only did the U.S. price of wheat rise as a direct result of the deal, but that prices of beef, pork, poultry, eggs and dairy products rose because of higher feed-grain costs. In addition, "a| severe disruption of transportation facilities" brought other | price increases. The transaction cost the taxpayers $300 million in export subsidies, GAO said, although it said much of that amount probably was not necessary. Wheat rose from $1.68 at the time of the deal to $3 in May, the GAO said. The report suggested the Agriculture Department had not considered the effect on the domestic economy in approving the transaction. At Iowa State University Monday, an extension economist said the nation may be overextending itself by making major grain commitments to other nations. Despite the Nixon administration's controls, Bob Wisner said demands for soybeans will leave the United States with "only a bare minimum" by Sept. 1. "We just won't have much of a supply to fall back on in light of unfavorable weather or conditions," he said An economist for Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, Calif., James O. Bray, said meat prices should start declining by the end of this year. By 1976, he said, prices for choice beef may drop to $1.15 a pound. That was the average retail price in 1972. But the economist said the current price freeze is making things worse, instead of better. Some producers reacted by cutting back on production, while shoppers took advantage of the situation by trying to increase consumption. The re suit was a shortage where none existed before, which could ultimately push prices higher, Bray said. New York City's Department of Consumer Affairs reported that its sample market basket dropped 10 cents in the week ending July 4. The basket includes 37 food items. The cost for the week was $52.54, compared with $52.64 for the week earlier. In Atlanta, John T. Dunlap, [chairman of the Cost of Living Council, indicated Phase IV may include new controls on food and petroleum products "We would like to move out of the freeze into a plan for stricter controls on food than existed in Phase II or III,' Dunlap told a news conference. He declined to be specific on possible restrictions for the petroleum industry, but indicated they would be tighter than they are now. He said he had no knowledge of a report that gasoline prices will be rolled back under Phase IV. PATGARRETT AMD BILLITHEKID [R] METROCOLOR Q FANAVISION* ^ M SHOWS 7:15 & 9:15 READ THE WANT ADS!
