Johnson Asks Less Foreign Investing WASHINGTON (AP) - The Johnson administration, seeking to ease this country's balance-of- payments deficit, asks businessmen today to meet specific guidelines on the amount of money they invest abroad. The guidelines, to be announced at a White House news conference by the Cabinet committee on balance of payments, are intended to achieve President Johnson's newly announced goal of limiting the dollar outflow to less than $250 million a year. It currently Is running at five times that rate. , Treasury and Commerce Department officials emphasized in advance there would be no deviation from the government's voluntary approach to overseas spending, inaugurated last February. No further restrictions on spending by U.S. tourists were anticipated, although Americans are expected to spend $1.8 billion more overseas this year than visitors will spend here. President Johnson designated his press secretary and No. 1 assistant, Bill D. Moyers, to preside over the news conference, accompanied by a battery of top economic and defense officials. For the first nine months this year, the payments deficit ran 1 at the annual rate of $1.25 billion. In 1964 the outflow totaled $2.8 billion, and in 1963 it was $2.7 billion. The new guidelines were prompted, officials said, by continued heavy foreign invest ments by American firms. Last month, officials an nounced that the continuing poor balanced-payments defi cit had triggered new studies of overseas investments and travel. The nation's third-quarter deficit, announced Nov. 17. was $485 million. It was revealed then, however, that Great Britain has sold an estimated $500 million worth of U.S. stocks and bond: so far in 1965 in an effort to bolster its sagging currency. The sales are registered as part of the U.S. deficit Britain still holds an estimated $750 million in U.S. securities, Treasury officials said. But the pound has strengthened in recent months and Secretary of the Treasury Henry H. Fowler said, "We do not expect this (the British sale) to be a recurring factor." Johnson told the Business Council in a telephoned speech Thursday that "we see attainment of our goal of equilibrium in balance of payments." Equilibrium was indicated to be a dollar outflow of $250 million annually. Combat Marines Get Garden Seeds Mrs. Gill tried to buy seeds at local stores, but in winter it's hard to buy seeds of any kind. A reporter of the Port Huroa Times Herald heard of her plight, wrote about it and the Port Huron Junior Chamber of Commerce picked up the ball. Mrs. Gill said the response from people who wanted to help was overwhelming. "They came to the door, all kinds of people, friends and relatives, and people I didn't know," she said. The Jaycees sent seeds by the pounds to Sgt, Gill and his men. "I've sent four boxes of just about every tiling that anybody. would give us, from onion to sweet corn and even Portuguese watermelon," she added. Mrs. Gill said her husband — "he has a green thumb" — has planted several things, but she didn't know exactly what. There were other things Gill wrote home about. "My darling, I want a picture of t!ie first snow, just so I'll know that somewhere in the world there's a place without steam, mud, slush and stink.

(AP) Green onions and radishes and carrots, and, maybe, a picture of the first snow back home — these are some of the things that help make life endurable In Viet Nam. Some three weeks ago, Mickie Gill of Port Huron received a letter from her husband, Marine S. Sgt. John H. Gill Jr. It was written in a humid, hot tent at Plei Me. Gill had just gone through hand-to-hand combat with the Viet Cong. "Send me some seeds so that I can plant them," Gill wrote. "We want fresh vegetables to make a salad.

Van D«llen (Copyright 1965: By The Chicago Tribune) Gastric acidity is the bugaboo of all peptic ulcer victims. Many have an inherent disposition to overreact to ordinary stress and anxiety. The end re- suit for these individuals is an excessive amount of acid in the stomach. It is now possible to determine when a person is dreaming by studying the brain waves and eye movement. During these periods, ulcer victims have more gastric acidity than do normal individuals. Testing the secretions at the same time usually reveals a marked increase of gastric acidity. This does not occur to normal people. A group of Los Angeles physicians demonstrated that not all dreams were accompanied with this increase. They believed that the offenders were only (hose stressful to (he ulcer victim. Eating also increases acidity and several volunteers recalled dreaming about food. It is impossible to determine how much this contributes to the over-all ulcer picture. Statistics show that healing occurs in 90 per cent with rest, diet, and antacid drugs. Relief is not always permanent and the rate of recurrence is high. Almost 65 per cent of the duodenal ulcers reappear within two and a half years and 80 per cent within five years. Ulcer distress usually returns during trying times and the recurrence rate can be reduced by minimizing tension and anxiety. Tobacco, caffeine, alcohol, and dietary indiscretion often are blamed unnecessarily. Most sufferers resort to these vices when the going gets tough and excessive smoking, drinking, or eating becomes an excellent excuse. The usual antacids act by neutralizing stomach acidity which relieves pain and pro- moles healing. The anti cho- lingeric drugs, such as Pro Banthine, accomplish the same by quieting the nerves that govern the churning movements and the acid-producing cells. Sedatives tend to shorten dream time and may be of value when ulcer discomfort is difficult to control. Dr. Van DeUen will answer questions on medical topics if stamped, self - addressed envelope accompanies request. STRENGTHENING EXERCISES Mrs. B. writes: Can anything be dons to strengthen a child's feet and ankles? Reply Nonspecific exercises consist of walking, running, jumping, and skating. Specific exercises for arch development include walking on the toes and the outer aspect of the feet as well as picking up marbles with the toes. TITLE OF PHYSICIAN H. H. Writes: How long have physicians been called doctors in this country? Reply For at least 300 years, according to Veils. The word phy- cian was used among the more learned from about 1650, but the earliest recorded instance is said to be found in the 1668 archives of the Roxbury church in Massachusetts.
