The natural spnrk pint; has its own rate, arid it cnn speed up or slow down within your normal rafH'f, The electrical impulse passes down from the top of (he heart mid must cross the arc.'i between the (op chambers of I he heart and the lower pumping chambers. You can think of this urea as H bridge, A common cmise for i\ very slow heart rate in nn older individual is Unit disease damoijes the area where the bridge '•"* located. With no bridge, the electric.-i) impulse cannot pass from the top to the bottom pumpinf! cluirnbers. When the pumping chtunbcnt are not stimulated, tiicy will Iwnt very slowly on their own. The slow rule is not fust enough in many instances to maintain adequate rirculn- tion. When the drculntlon is poor, the bniin i,s affected mid may en use 11 person to lose consciousness. The pacemaker provides a regular stimulation to the lower pumping chambers from ;i buttery mechanism. •)<>< (dr want-, the- hc-;ir!

That could cause mental confusion, fatigue, or loss of consciousness. Many people >;et alonf! «reat with a pacemaker. The recent models are much better than older ones. I would like to remind my readers that many healthy people have slow heart rales. Uoj/er Bannister had a resting heart rate in the 30s when he was fully trained to break the four- minute mile. Hut, if you are not an athlete, a very slow heart rate of 50 or below can mean problems.

Ark * APi Th»' Trxarkftna l/osrd of directors fjpf jfk:d Monday to take ,v!K<n against an estimated four million blackbirds that havr- pir kr-d Die rjiy as a roost- inj? placp ffir the winter. After ronsultinj; with state and county officials, the directors voted to take several measures to remove the birds from H 10 acre tract in the north part of the city near Interstate 30. Work crews will begin by trimming many of the trees on the land and if that doesn't work, the trees will be cut down, officials said. Other r.-if^rv ••{ j'pi'ing the birds \r, fist in a more rural ares m- fhj'k- using scare-tactics" fw h as loud booms from a cannon-like device and the use of Mund trucks that broadcast blackbird calls. About 10 persons attended a meeting Monday night to discuss the birds. Many of the persons said they didn't want the birds killed, but persuaded to move because the smell was unbearable. Agricultural agent Bob Pierce told the directors that the birds could present other problems besides undesirable odors. He said blackbirds are known to carry lice and his- toplamosis disease. The birds roosted in the same general area last year and Pierce theorized the birds like the spot because of the many row-planted pine trees. Television Logs Tuest'.ay.
