(AP) — It was one of those soft drink machines where you lift the lid and see the tops of all the trapped bottles. One coin permits one bottle to be pulled out. But vandals — thirsty ones — saved their money. Police answered a call and found the tops gone from 21 bottles of pop, and the bottles about half empty — apparently thanks to straws and determination. Swift Asks Mass Picketing Restricted SIOUX CITY(AP)- Attorneys for Swift & Co. have asked District Court to restrict mass picketing at the company plant here. Jesse Marshall, Swift attorney, said Monday night the petition "asks that strikers be restrained from throwing bricks, threatening members of employes' families and calling them on the telephone to intimidate them against returning to work, and to limit the number of pickets." Judge George M. Paradise set a hearing on the petition for 10 a.m. Wednesday. Union attorneys said there had been no violence or threats. About 600 members of Local 71 of the United Packinghouse Workers of America went on strike Sept. 4. By JERRY BENNETT NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Misconceptions about disease have become one of the world's greatest health hazards. Scientists of the U.S. Public Health Service Behavioral Studies Section have found that ignorance and illogical fears and attitudes about health help kill thousands each year and put a multitude of others in the hospital. These misconceptions have caused thousands of persons to shun polio vaccine. Many of them have fallen victim to the disease. Confused ideas about health also keep many cancer and tuberculosis victims from getting the vital physical check-ups that could save their lives or prevent long hospitalization. PHS doctors believe that faulty thinking once again will stop thousands from taking shots to protect them during the approaching flu season. After eight years of research, BSS scientists believe one of the major misconceptions is the "It Can't Happen to Me" theory. BSS Chief Dr. Irwin M. Rosenstock declares: "It seems incredible that there are people who don't think that they are susceptible to disease. However, such persons do exist." Dr. Rosenstock says that many of these Americans will admit that everybody is susceptible to ailments like cancer and tuberculosis. He explains, however, that they still harbor the conviction that such afflictions happen only to other people. This illogical, emotional feeling is strong enough to make them ignore the countless warnings about the importance of regular physical check-ups. One major source of such warnings are the medical columns in the nation's newspapers. Of them, Rosenstock says: "Recent evidence shows that newspaper medical columns are widely read and develop many faithful and loyal readers. Moreover, newspaper readers seem to want more information on the subject of health and medicine." Another misconception concerns the severity of diseases. Dr. Rosenstock explains that some people understand they can catch diseases but fail to take preventive steps because they don't realize the seriousness of the ailments. Examples of this misconception are excuses often given by adults for not getting vaccinated against polio. The BSS Chief explains that many of these people feel that polio is primarily a children's disease and that it carries no serious threat to adults. Dr. Rosenstock believes this misconception stems from the days when polio was publicized as infantile paralysis. One of the most startling rea- IGNORANCE, FEAR and foolishness fill thousands of hospital beds each year. Heims Have Guests From South Dakota <Time» Herald Nrw» Service) AUBURN — Mrs. A. H. Schulte and Mr. and Mrs. Duane Van Lohr, Sioux Falls, S.D., visited a few days last week in the home of Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Heim. Thursday they all went to Des Moines where they were overnight guests in the home of C.P.O. and Mrs. Raymond Heim and sons. It had been six years since Mrs. Schulte had seen her brother, C.P.O. Heim. Alice and Harvey Corry, with Mr. and Mrs. Wyman Peterson of Carroll, attended a meeting of the National Chinchilla Breeders Association in Des Moines Saturday. Mr. and Mrs. Harry Waters and son, Dale, of Lake City were Sunday dinner guests in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Tony Lammers and family for the birthdays of Dale Waters and Tony Lammers. Mrs. Waters brought the birthday cake. Mrs. Anna Willert is visiting relatives in Nebraska. Ward Bean, Maryville. Mo., and Sharon Bean, Des Moines were weekend visitors in the home of their parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Bean. Mr. and Mrs. Harold Christopher and Pamela of Fort Dodge and Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Raseke of Gowrie were Sunday afternoon visitors. Jim Putbrese of Cedar Falls was a weekend guest in the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Putbrese. sons why people fail to get checkups is fear of learning they have a serious disease. The possibility of finding this out is just too dreadful for them to face, Dr. Rosenstock says. They don't realize that many of the so-called incurable diseases can be licked if discovered early enough. Some people dread the thought of long hospitalization, Dr. Rosenstock says. They worry about the economic effect on their families. This attitude often results from lack of knowledge about special aid that social agencies can give to families of sick people. Another reason for illogical fears is misunderstanding about disease cures. Dr. Rosenstock explains that many people believe that the cure is often worse than the disease itself. They fail to realize that such ailments as cancer, if spotted soon enough, often can be successfully treated without complicated or painful surgery. How to correct these misconceptions and others like them is currently under study by BSS experts. They believe, however, that it may take several years to find the answers. Dr. Rosenstock thinks that one of the most effective solutions would be for schools to teach health courses. Such courses would help the next generation to grow up without the medical misconceptions that plague today's adults. Now!
