But then one comes along in which the Indian is portrayed badly - "and the cne bad one cancels out the three good ones." As an example of the bad, he says he recently was asked to do a Gunsmoke episode. "IT WAS A cliche (hat was old 20 years ago," he says. "I was supposed to play a vilian- Ous, snarling Indian, who at' tacked the wagon (rain and kidnapped (he beautiful white girl. Then Matt Dillon single- handedly Went after the Indians, knocked out or shot a dozen and rescued the girl. "I turned it down." He says there was a time when he didn't turn that kind of part down. He knew if he didn't do it somebody else would. He felt he had to get established as an actor "before I could begin to exert some influence." Now, he believes, he's strong enough in the business so .that he can exert (hat influence. He has founded the Indian Actors Workshop which teaches young Indians the fundamentals of acting, writing and the various film crafts. He .also serves on the Ethnic Minorities Committee of the Screen Actors Guild. AND, NOW, he picks and chooses his parts with care. You can see him, currently, in "The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing" and he's presently shooting Disney's "One Little Indian." He thinks both parts are good. For eight seasons, of course,, he was Tonto on The Lone Ranger. That 's his most memorable role. He considers Tonto "a postive character." "He was on the side of law and order.

He was a boxer and wrestler, played hockey and lacrosse. He became a pro lacrosse player and toured the United States, ending up in Los Angeles. From there, he decided to try acting. It's been a long and busy career. But the whole Indian situation still rankles. It hasn't changed very much since he was a boy. RPV Makes First Flight EDWARDS AFB, Calif.

M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb — I have an occasional flareup with my di- verticulosis. Would you please explain this condition to me. I'm on a low residue diet, and am told to take a laxative every day. Is it necessary to have a daily elimination? Every bottle or can warns one that prolonged use of laxatives may result in dependency. Are laxatives the only way? Dear Reader — Diverticula are small herinated pockets along the intestine. Often-Jhey are along the left colon. These little side pockets literally are hernations of the inner lining of the colon into pocket-like formations. In many people they cause no symptoms, in others they become inflammed and produce symptoms similar to appendicitis, or they may even bleed. I have discussed this problem before. Many authorities feel that di­ verticula are associated with poor function of the bowel, specifically spastic colon and constipation-type problems. Dr Denis Burkitt feels that the lack of bulk in the American diet is the reason this problem is so common in pur society. It's not very common in societies that have, a great deal of cereal fiber in their diet. His Studies, and others, have resulted in a change in thinking by most doctors about what kind of diet a person should have to prevent or manage a problem of di- verticulosis. Other than acute inflammatory problems, which are a special problem, most of these individuals are better off if they have a diet which contains an appreciable amount of bulk., This is just the, opposite of. the, low -residue diet that vou've mentioned. Goes Into Spasm The colon contracts in a rhythmic fashion to move the food residue along. If there's not much residue in the colon, it overcontracts and goes into spasm. This starts off the chain of events that; leads to spastic colon, constipation, and related problems. By using something to provide sufficient bulk, such as the natural • cereal fiber that should occur in eating whole cereals, this problem is avoid- Jeb Magruder In London NEW YORK (UPI) -Jeb Stuart Magruder, former deputy director of the Committee to Re-elect the President, has left for London with his family. The former White House aide flew out Sunday on a. charter flight as a member of a group. Magruder admitted to the Senate Watergate Committee that he committed perjury last January during the trial of the Watergate burglars, but he is not now under indictment. ' ed. The diverticula are an outgrowth of prolonged poor bowel function. Obviuosly, a chemical laxative is certainly not the answer to this problem. Bulk expander type laxatives are useful in a number of conditions and do not have the same harmful effects. Chemical laxatives propel food through the small intestine too rapidly and end up disturbing the function of the colon. Most specialists In gastro­ enterology would not recommend laxative regularly for a person who has diverticula. Quite the contrary, they would recommend a bowel training program directed toward prevention of spastic colon, constipation and related problems. This is achieved by changing the diet at a suitable time to one that contains a satisfactory amount of bulk an destablishing regular bowel habits. One might need to use a bulk expander or, at interims, a small tap water enema in the process of training the bowel. Don't Agree In a nutshell, I do not agree with the type of program you're on if it is being provided to you for a treatment of diverti- culosis. It is not the form of treatment that I think most gas- troenterologists would recommend for Constipation or spastic or irritable colon. The chemical laxative habit usually leads to continued problems with the bowel. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O.
