I. 1932. under Act of ConfreM of March a) 1879 SECOND SECTION coronary heart disease accelerated by cigarette smoking. This is about equal tothenumber of deaths from a combination of lung cancer and all other diseases which are statistically blamed on cigarettes. Facts Show Doctors Are Quitting Gigs AEA Is Host To 5-Disfricf Conference New Bucket In Use Here (This is the second in a series of articles on heart attack and stroke "risk factors" prepared by the Iowa Heart Association and published by this newspaper). To paraphrase a once familiar advertising slogan: Among those who know diseases best, only 22% now smoke cigarettes. This is the key figure in a recent poll taken by a professional medical journal of more than 60,000 physicians, nearly a third of those actively practicing in the United States. Of all the doctors responding to a questionnaire, 95% said they were certain that cigarette smoking constitutes a major health hazard. More than half (52%) do not smoke at all; 22.5% continue to smoke cigarettes against their better judgment; the remainder have switched to pipes or cigars. The growing evidence that cigarettes are strongly implicated in heart disease, lung cancer and other causes of illness and death is reflected in the fact that more and more doctors are changing their smoking habits every day. Some doctors can and some do argue that a cause and effect link between cigarette smoking and disease and death has not yet been conclusively proved, yet almost all of them find the statistical evidence overwhelmingly convincing - because even among those 22.5% who admitted they were still smoking cigarettes, 89% said they believe they were indulging in a health hazard. , -While the -influence of .cigarette smoking and lung cancer has tended to hog headlines because of the direct and dramatic statistical correlation, It should not be forgotten that there is an even greater and graver connection between smoking and heart disease. One horrifying and strangely ignored statistic underscores this point: it is estimated that each year at least 60,000 American males die prematurely of The Algona Education Association was host recently to a sub- district conference for teachers representing three counties, Kossuth, Winnebago and Hancock. This was the first such meeting to be held in the history of the ISEA. Purpose of the meeting was to allow officers of local education associations, committee chairmen and committee members to have the advantage of smaller groups for discussion and less travel distance for such a meeting. Those who attended had the opportunity to participate actively and to meet personally members of the Iowa State Education Association staff and the District Executive Board. Elgin Allen, local high school principal and member of the District Executive Board, and John Vint, local Education Association president, were in charge of arrangements for the meeting which was hold in the high school Annex. Kathryn Sorensen, local guidance counselor and member of the state committee on professional rights and responsibilities, gave information on the activities of her committee and suggestions for local committees in this area. Duane Lodge, member of the ISEA staff, talked to the group about current legislative activities and explained procedures to be followed In the coming weeks. Neil Curtis, ISEA Field Service representative, explained in detail the many services available through ISEA, not only for leaders and committee chairmen, but for any individual member. Vast resources are available on many subjects as research, income tax, library service and insurance.. Discussion groups followed as Algona Munlcpal Utilities put a new unit to work here this week that is certain to be fun to watch. It is an aerial bucket truck - with a boom and bucket that will reach more than 40 feet into the air, greatly aiding in maintenance and repair work on power lines in the city. The truck for the unit was purchased from Taylor Motor Co here, then shipped to Ft. Wayne, Ind. whe re the body and boom were installed. The bucket, a portion of the boom and the turntable mounted on the truck are made of fiberglass (in total or partially) to insure the safety of employees using it because it will not conduct electricity in case a hot wire in brushed or being handled by the boom. It Is also equipped with hydraulic winch which is capable of lifting a 1,000 - pound load and a hydraulic chain saw for trimming unwanted tree limbs away from wires. The entire drive system of the boom is hydraulic, according to T J Palmer Utilities head here. ' The rear corners are stabilized by outriggers, as shown in the photo, so the boom can be rotated in a full 360- degree circle during use. (UDM Graphic - Polaroid Photo) members divided according to their particular leadership category. In addition to Mr. Lodge and Mr. Curtis, discussion leaders were Bill Pritchard and Duane Selmer, members of the ISEA staff; Dale Mulford, president of the North Central District from Grundy Center; Del Cram, district TEPS chairman from Humboldt; Ed Steward, member of ISEA staff; and Miss Sorensen, Algona. A short summary concluded the meeting with refreshments being served by the local association. ISEA staff members in attendance provided displays and many free materials for those interested. , l/K , Let the good guys protect you!
