f AGE ftffiftp ALTON EVENING , AUGUST 16,1963 Area Attorney Tells of Crossing Berlin Here's How Hanging Art Is Itself an Art Editoi-'s note: We have been runhing a leties of colurtins by filaJiie P. Wendler, Madison County Home Adviser, on foods she found interesting on a recent trip to Europe with her husband, an attorney. Today's column is by the latter on his thoughts and reactions in Berlin. * * * * It was like a dream. Having returned from a 7 week vacation trip to Europe, and later reading in our papers that our President viewed the Wall constructed in Berlin from a platform especially built for him. We stood on the same spot, but also viewed the same part of the Wall from the opposite side in East Berlin. What did we see on both sides ol this Wall? We saw a wall composed of Stone, cement, iron, barbpd wire, bricks, broken glass, and parts of buildings. It followed no straight lines. It varied in height with the average about 9 to 10 feet. On the top of the Wall was placed broken glass and barbed wire, tf the Wall stopped at a house or an apai'l- ment building, the doors and windows were closed with brick, stone, and mortar. On the top of these buildings we could, see rolls of barbed wire. The first and second apartment at the Wall were vacant by orders of the East German authorities. Flood lights illuminated the inside of the Wall at night. The inner side was also painted white in some areas. All streets ended at the Wall. The underground sewers were blocked at the Wall. Telephone lines and all forms of was a Russ.nn Memorial. ' communications stopped here. we drove. We were permitted to take pictures from the bus, but were not permitted to get off except at one point which Two Cities We saw two entirely different cities, which once was one, having emerged again on each side of this Wall. West Berlin is a thriving city, having been re-built with our help. East Berlin is just beginning to show development after 1S years. We crossed the Wall at chock point Charlie on a tour which started in West Berlin. Forty to fifty people were on this bus. All were tourists with passports indicating the country from which they came. This bus toured West Berlin first and at the Wall our guide got off and waited for our return. Only the driver was permitted to pass through. At this point, on our side, we saw our Military Police, the French, and the British. As we zig-zagged through the barricades and the iron poles were lifted, we could see the metal tank barricades and the armored cars of the East Germans. Some of the East Germans carried sub-machine guns. • As our bus stopped, an East German policeman with a female assistant entered the bus and checked passports. Then an East German girl joined our group as a guide. She was 19 and spoke English. She explained the areas through which Speaking of Your Health by LESTER L. COLEMAN, M.D. Can you tell me what a biopsy blood vessels is injured, a clot, Does it always Is?" Does it always mean cancer?—P. B. New Jersey Dear Mr. B.: Biopsy is the , removal of a small piece of tissue for microscopic study of Its exact nature. Biopsies are performed in many different ways, depending on the location of the tissue or growth in question. Sent to Lab When the specimen is removed, it is immediately sent to s the laboratory where it is carefully processed. The tissue is cut in the thinnest conceivable slices. Special dyes are i then used to stain the intricate cell structure of the tissue. Highly Trained Pathologists who examine this stained tissue are highly trained to recognize normal and abnormal cells. The report of their microscopic findings often determines the choice of medical, surgical or X-ray treatment for the patient's condition. Biopsies do not necessarily mean cancer. Biopsies are an important additional test which, when added to all other diagnostic information, are helpful to the doctor in his complete evaluation of his patient's problem. Related Conditions After an injury, my husband developed thrombosis of the or thrombus, may form at this site, sometimes extending even beyond the point of injury. Return to Normalcy As the condition improves, the thrombus is absorbed and the blood'vessel returns to its normal state. Occasionally, during the healing stage, a small piece of the thrombus, or clot, breaks off and is carried by the blood stream to a distant place—frequently, the lung. Scientific research is actively progressing with the problem of thrombosis, and has already reported methods by which a thrombus can be prevented. Occupational Hazard What is amyotrophic lateral sclerosis? Can it be related to being a Tiouse painter?—Mr. F. R. Indiana. Dear Mr. R.: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a complex neurological disease related to others,- such as progressive muscular atrophy and progressive bulbar palsy. The cause is not definitely known. Chronic lead poisoning, which occurs sometimes in painters, has been suspected, but not fully substantiated as a likely cause of amyotrophic laternal sclerosis. But the disease is so uncommon that you probably have no cause for worry. 'As a house painter, you should have tests for chronic lead poisoning. It will alleviate your fears and leg. When he was almost re- anxiety about the hazards of covered he got an embolism in occupation. his lung. How are these two conditions related?—Mrs. S. T., Illinois. Dear Mrs. T.: A severe injury to the leg almost alsvays causes some damage to the blood vessels. When the inner lining of the While Dr. Colemnn .cannot undertake to answer individual letters, he will use readers' questions in his column whenever possible and when they are of general interest. Address your letters to Dr. Coleman in care of Alton Telegraph. 1063, King Features, Synd., Inc. This tour did not stay near the Wall. Here we saw the most destruction. Few cars, not too many people. This was a Sunday afternoon and the people that we saw, we imagined, were local people, or tourists in from East Germany. We didn't notice many smiling faces. Family Separated Our guide in East Berlin lived with her parents. Two of her brothers were in West Berlin. She had not talked to them or seen them lor over two years because of the Wall and the regulations. She told us that she did not want anything to do with the Russians. It appeared thai everything in East Berlin was forced upon the remaining people by the political regime which holds power by force. This political group is German — not Russian. Its hold is so strong that only force or education can remove it. Only a few Russians are present in East Berlin. Education will take time. Many years will pass before this part of the world will realize the freedoms of our Democracy. We returned to check-point Charlie. No people were there trying to cross over into West Berlin. The guns, barbed wire, armored cars, and the Wall were still there. Our young guide got off the bus. The East Berlin officer and assistant checked all passengers again. This time the guards opened the luggage compartment and checked the bus from top to bottom — inside and out. They made sure that no East Berliners or East Germans crossed through the check-point Charlie to Freedom. Our guide in West Berlin had told us that the East Germans would have their people believe that the Wall was to keep us from coming into East Berlin. But the East Berliners know better. Relaxed Again As we zig-zagged back through check-point Charlie, we could feel relaxed again as no serious international developments took place while we were in East Berlin, which could have closed the Wall and the borders. Before visiting Berlin, we felt our country was wasting money here; that it was like one city owning a section of another city with the right to govern this section and enter to and from at all times; that our actions in West Berlin were foolish. However, we now feel that our country must remain in West Berlin with the other nations as a symbol to the world that Freedoms can be pushed by force only to a point that force will be used to re-establish the Freedom. As West Berlin is,surrounded by East Germany, it can only survive with our help. For East Germany or Russia to seize it by force will bring retaliation from the rest of the free world. We must have good diplomatic men to repre* sent us in foreign countries. — Arthur F. Wendler College Notes Miss Sandra Stein, daughter of Mrs. Seymour Stein of fj76 Payne St., Wood River, is attending the summer session at Mary Byers School in New York City. She previously attended C. W. Post College in Brookville, N. Y. nni T^ *i The ramily " V- Ami Landers She*s Cheating Her Son learning dancing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our son is 11 years old. He goes to dancing school where he is poise and ballroom Most of the boys and ! girls in his class aio 10, 11 and •12 years old. Last night the class had a par- ly at the home of one of the little girls. It was not a date affair. Each child was brought by Ann Landers, a parent and was to be picked up by midnight. Our son told us this morning that he had a terrible time because of a game called "Heaven Or Hell." The boy takes the girl who is "it" into a closet and for seven minutes he can either kiss her (Heaven) or hit her (Hell). Our son said he didn't want to hit a girl and he didn't want to kiss one either. According to him the girls liked the game but the boys didn't. My husband is boiling mad over this and he wants to take our son out of the school. I have mixed emotions. Wouldn't it be a shame if he lacked poise and didn't know how to dance when dancing is so important to popularity these days? BEVERLY HILLS MOTHER Get-Acquainted Picnic "Big and little sisters" join the chow line at a get-acquainted picnic given forlncomig Mwquette High School freshman girls Thursday evening at Rock Sing Park, The senior girls of the high school planned the party Sr the enrolled freshmen. The young women met in the pavilion, where a'friQ antwtolned with "hootenanny" songs. Following a wiener roast, the tirfif S together, "Guitar" pins assisted freshmen in finding their $!$»• appointed earlier, Mothers of the students chaperoned DEAR BEVERLY: Who gave your husband poise lessons? Mine, too — and they survived somehow, didn't they? Take that kid of yours out of that silly dancing school' and put him in a YMCA swimming class. An 11-year-old boy should be playing baseball, climbing trees and wrestling with other boys. He should not be "kissing or hitting" girls in closets. Parents who push 10-, 11- and 12-year-olds into adult situations force them to play-act. The best these poor kids can do is imitate what they imagine is adult behavior. Youngsters s'uch as yours, who are cheated of precious childhood years, become burned out has-beens at 17. * * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: Is it all right for the landlady to roam freely through our apartment, eating and smoking and sticking her nose into heaven knows what? I am one of six single girls who lives in this very convenient building. The units we rent are not sumptuous but to us this is home. We don't own anything of value but the idea that someone can come in and snoop around is maddening. The landlady will not permit us to change the locks on our doors because she says she must have access to our apartments in case of an emergency. Is there something we can do? None of us wants to move. THE CLIFF DWELLERS DEAR DWELLERS: The landlady may indeed have the keys to your apartments but she has no right to use those keys except in a real emergency (fire, escaping gas, etc.). Many leases say so. If yours does not, perhaps it should. In some states the landlady could be prosecuted for illegal entry if she invaded your apartments just to snoop around. * * # * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I went steady with Rollie for almost six months. Several weeks ago we sat down and had a long talk.. We agreed the romance had cooled and that we had lost interest in each other. There were no harsh words — you might say the romance just died of natural causes. Yesterday when I heard Rollie is dating a girl friend of mine I decided to give him his fraternity pin back. I looked high and low and can't find the pin anywhere. Do you feel I have an obligation to replace it? Or shall I wait until he asks and then tell him "Too bad, Friend, I lost the bloomin' thing." Thanks for your help, DOORNAIL ROMANCE DEAR DOORNAIL: Since Rollie hasn't mentioned the pin he probably doesn't attach much importance to it. Say nothing. If he should ask for the pin later, you have an obligation to replace it — if he wishes you to. * * * » Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems, Send thein to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed, envelope, . ft Publishers Newspaper Syndicate T Date Book (Date Book Items must bo submitted before Thursday noon,) SUNDAY, Aug. 18' Vulilo Family Itounion, 10 a m, with basket dinner at 1 p.m., main shelterhouse of Standard Oil Torch Club- grounds.

Cooking Cues When serving dumplings with your favorite stew, put a little sparkle into them by adding crisp, chopped bacpn, chopped parsley or ground cooked liver. It's easy for the old-standby creamed dried beef to change its style. The addition of chopped hard-cooked egg, curry powder, diced or minced onion, green pepper or celery all create a different dish.

You dort't slap pictures up on a wall to fill up space. They must be artistically arranged so that the collection of mass flatters the space, and In Itself becomes an artistic pattern. "Most people -do not understand art, much less the arrangement ot It, unless they've studied art," he explains. "Ev- ei-yone seems to be looking for advice in this art renaissance." Austrian hangs pictures that people own, but also he does entire rooms to order, supply- Ing all the wall art. He does building lobbies and offices, but has refused to hang pictures where they don't belong. He won't sell a picture unless it is right for the place it is to hang and won't sell picture groupings unless he hangs them. Personal Background "When we select pictures for a home we take into consideration personal background, places in the world the people have visited and wish to recapture, art tendencies that have been liked and seen and a particular love of an activity." He has framed tattered Confederate flags, and a flag that was at Waterloo, pictures of famous men, belt buckles, autographs, pipes, precious jewels, old letters. He has just placed a quail wishbone on black velvet for one romantic couple. "They didn't want to break it when they made a wish on it years ago, and now decided to frame it." Austrian will hang mixed media — oil paintings, etchings, engravings, dimensional things — "but we don't believe in reproductions of any kind, such as the so-called masterpiece reproduced on paper," he says. It's a waste of time and money to pick up art willy-nilly to fill up wall space, says Austrian, whose New York shop, The Picture Decorator, is jammed with some 25,000 prints, 100 oil paintings, 400 moldings, and innumerable fabrics used for mats. "It's not uncommon to spend a few dollars on a print and very much more to frame it," he says. Needn't Cost a Lot Pictures should move and flow in a room, he advises, stressing that art need not cost a lot of money. He has put pictures in the living room of a young couple for ?100 and has done elegant apartments for ?5,000. He travels to many countries for art and frames. Pictures provide built - in charm for walls, he says, not by the size of pictures but by the shape and number of them. The big painting over a couch or in back of the piano 'is passe. Ditto pictures arranged in step designs. The art on walls in any room should look as if it has been collected, and you can frame anything from old family portraits to Civil War documents to achieve that look, he points out. Cardroom-den in a New York apartment has old playing cards, vaudeville and minstrel posters and the top of an old beer barrel on the wall. Ray Austrian, who arranged the hangings, focused attention on the function of the room while blending with Victorian furnishings.

Break corned beef into pieces and combine it with pickle relish, prepared mustard and mayonnaise. Season to taste and serve on rye bread. When preparing a pot-roast, use a small amount of liquid. This is added after the meat has been browned and the drippings poured off. Cover the meat tightly and cook slowly until tender. Cooking time is usually 3 to 3Va hours, or about 1 hour per pound. Never cover the meat with water, as is recommended when preparing meat cubes for stew, Hitch-Cooper Ronald Hitch and his bride, the former Miss Barbara Cooper, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Cooper of Moro, are living at 7 Oak St., in Moro following their marriage last Saturday in the home of the Rev.
