Page 6-THE HERALD. Provo. Utah. Monday. April 14, 1975 GOP, Demos Schedule Fund-Raising Events WASHINGTON (UI'I) - The $l,000-a-plate dinner, a hardy remnant of the fat cat era of political fundraising, returns to Washington this week under the Republican banner. The party's national committee and its House and Senate campaign committees expect up to 600 stalwarts to pay $1,000 each to consume $27.50 worth of food and drink Tuesday night in the company of several hundred elected and appointed Republican officials led by President Ford. The three GOP committees hope to net $450,000 from the dinner, to be split equally and used to support Republican candidates. That would be nearly $70,000 more in the till than last year, when the dinner was held under the cloud of the Watergate scandal, but a far cry from 1969, when $3 million was grossed at the GOP fund raising effort. The Democrats also have a big fund raiser this month —on April 24 in the same huge underground (Washington Hilton) ballroom that the Republicans are renting. The Democratic dinner, cosponsored by the party's two congressional campaign committees with the support of the national committee but no cut for its treasury, brought in $650,000 last year. With its tickets going for $500 each —presumably for the same $27.50 setting of steak and wine —the Democrats expect to increase their 1974 income, perhaps up to the $900,000 take of two years ago. Fundraising dinners have been Dr. Lawrence E. Lamb Treating of High Blood Pressure DEAH DR. LAMB - Please tell me what I can do for high blood pressure and poor circulation. Three years ago I was told I had high blood pressure but nothing was done for it. After three examinations over the three-year period, 1 am now finally on treatment. My blood pressure ranged from 190 on one reading to 230. I'm on Aldactazide and on a checkup the doctor said I had done better than most. I can't understand why the doctors didn't give me something for high blood pressure in the first place. Now I know my circulation is poor. I don't smoke or drink and weigh 125 pounds and am five feet four. I am a worrier. DEAR READER - Doctors are more inclined to treat high blood pressure now than they used to be. During the important studies of the past 25 years it has been clearly demonstrated that elevation of either the systolic (higher) reading or the diastolic (lower) reading increases the rate of development of fatty-cholesterol deposits in the arteries of the body, including the heart and brain. High blood pressure is a major factor in the risk of having heart attacks and strokes. The blood pressure picture changes rapidly in patients and even those on treatment need constant revaluation and often readjustment of their program. It is probable that your pressure was low enough and you were doing well enough on .your previous examinations that the doctors didn't think it was necessary to start treatment yet. Most of the problems related to high blood pressure are caused by the complication of fatty- cholesterol deposits in the arteries. It follows that one of the most important aspects of treatment is diet. And, it is often neglected by both the patient and the doctor. The first order of business is a low-fat, low in saturated fat, low-cholesterol diet, with a limitation of calorie intake sufficient to eliminate any excess fat under the skin and to keep the fat off. Even a few pounds you don't need can make an important difference. Diet alone often reduces the pressure to normal levels in many people. These people don't need dangerous medicines, they need a good living pattern to include a proper diet for them and a proper activity program. When the pressure can't be controlled by complete elimination of excess body fat and a proper diet, which should also be low in salt, then medicines may be necessary. The medicine you are taking is designed to eliminate salt and fluid and it is often very effective. There are three main risk factors related to habits that influence the risk of having heart attacks and strokes. They are higtj cholesterol, high blood pressure (which you can often help with a proper diet and exercise program) and cigarette smoking. With a low blood cholesterol, normal or low blood pressure, and no smoking you can decrease your risk many many times and have a good chance to live well past 70 without danger of heart or vascular disease. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on cholesterol, send 50 cents and a long self- addressed stamped envelope to the same address and ask for the "Cholesterol" booklet.

Although Congress provided for public financing of presidential campaigns, it left fundraising for congressional elections in the free entciprise arena. The Republicans expect about 1,000 persons to attend this year's dinner, but a number of them will be on the cuff. For the second year, the GOP is bringing 100 young Republican leaders to the dinner as a reward for activism. There also will be about 140 members of Congress, several governors and at least six members of the cabinet. Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller will introduce the President for the main address. Ford will come on after the diners have been entertained by Mark Russell, an acid-tongued song parodist who specializes in puncturing politicians. Clinic Stay Extended For Mills LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (UPI) Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., will stay another month in a Florida clinic where he is undergoing treatment for alcoholism, according to his personal secretary. Janice Ireland told the Arkansas Gazette Monday that Mills planned to complete the clinic's course of therapy about May 5. He has been in the clinic at West Palm Beach since late February. Trial Jury Learns About Numbers on Dollar Bills WASHINGTON (UPI) -Ever wonder what all those numbers are on dollar bills? The jury in former Treasury Secretary John B. Connally Jr.'s bribery trial learned more about them last week than they perhaps really wanted to know. The information came from an expert witness, John C. Craven, assistant head of plant security for the Bureau of Engraving of Printing. The number in the upper righthand and lower left hand comers is the serial number. It consists of eight digits preceded and followed by letters. The first letter stands for the Federal Reserve District from which the bill was issued: A— Boston; B—New York; C— Philadelphia; D—Cleveland; E -Richmond; F—Atlanta; G— Chicago' H—St. Louis; I— Minneapolis; J—Kansas City; K—Dallas; and L—San Francisco. The bills are printed chronologically. When the serial number reaches the maximum Sessions Sef by Russ MOSCOW (UPI) - Soviet space experts have completed the practice program for the Soviet carrier rocket and Soyuz spaceship to be used in a joint flight with American astronauts in July, academician Boris Petrov said today. He said Soviet and American scientists also have solved all problems involved in building joint approach and docking systems for the rendezvous in space. The Soviet Tass news agency said Petrov, chairman of the "Intercosmos" Council of the Soviet Union's Academy of Sciences, gave the assurances at an official function marking "Cosmonautic Day," anniversary of the first space flight, made by Yuri Gagarin April 12, 1961. Last weekend the Soviet Union announced failure of a Soyuz launch when the carrier rocket went awry. American officials said they were satisfied with the Russian explanation and were going ahead with plans for the July rendezvous of a two-man Soyuz and a three-man Apollo craft in earth orbit. Space scientist Konstantine Bushuyev apparently tried to set American fears at rest Friday when he said: "Preparations for the joint flight are fully in keeping with planned schedules and we have every reason to expect the flight will start successfully on time." According to Tass, Petrov said: "The practice program for the Soviet carrier rocket and the Soyuz spaceship has been completed." Petrov said the Soviet Union plans other major international space projects this year. Wkecentennial' Route Scheduled MARION, III. (UPI) - Last summer, Jim Richardson, 28, and his wife, Linda Thorpe, 23, traveled 4,152 miles on a bicycle built for two. The couple, who live in Missoula, Mont, made a cross country trip from Astoria, Ore., to Wiliamsburg, Va. Now they are making the same trip again, only this time by van to set up a route for a 1976 "bikecentennial" planned in connection with the nation's bicentennial. "We are setting up 80 Bike Inns across the country as places for the riders to stop overnight for reasonable rates —about a dollar per person per night and perhaps a dollar for breakfast and two dollars for dinner if they wish," Richardson said. "We expect from 10,000 to BLM Offers Assistance With Trail CHEYENNE (UPI) - Wagon trains following the Oregon Trail this summer in celebration of the nation's bicentennial will have a little help from a Bureau of Land Managmment helicopter in plotting their course. BLM official James Lambert says the chopper will take to the air next month, tracing the Oregon Trail towards Afton. "We're losing some segments of the trail to land use of mining rigs and especially caterpillar rigs," he said. "We want to pin down the most visible segments on maps and erect concrete monuments." He said the agency will also solicit landowner permission so the four wagontrain segments can roll up to Fort Laramie in eastern Wyoming. 30,000 bicycle riders to participate with maybe 10 per cent of them doing the whole tour," he said. However, he said riders may make any part of the tour. "Southern Illinois was chosen for the route through Illinois because of its scenic beauty and historical sites," Richardson said He said the Division of Beautify your home... stretch your dollars PAINT RATHER THAN REMODEL PICK A PICK A PITTSBURGH 6 Paints PRICES GOOD THROUGH APRIL 19, 1975 eight-digit figure of 99999999, the next letter, A, B, C and so on, is added as a suffix and the numbers start over again. The seal in the middle of the left side of the bill also contains the letter of the Federal Reserve Bank from which it was issued. There are four single-numbers in each corner of the light part of the bill. These, too, represent the Federal Reserve banks —1 for Boston, 2 for New York, 3 for Philadelphia, and soon. The series number just to the left of the signature of the secretary of the Treasury corresponds roughly to the year. Previously, it was updated each time the design of the border of the bills was changed —about every two years. If the secretary changed before the border, a letter was added just below the number. The current secretary, William E. Simon, is merely "Series 1974." Craven said he has directed that each time the secretary changes, the series number will change, too.

Richardson, a director of Bikecentennial Inc., said several of the organization's 2,000 members are from the Chicago area and that some may take a train to Carbondale to join the Dlinois segment of the bike ride. Richardson said he and his wife each had a bicycle on a rack on the back of their van when they started this year's trip, but the bikes were stolen last weekend. "Someone removed the bicycles during a stop in St. Louis," Richardson said "That's one reason the bikecentennial route will avoid big cities." f oi Kitchen. Bath.
