March 17. Wv-One of the my.terlou, thing, tboul the mysterious i.-s thai comparatively few Chinese have heart disease Thl. clieei-ful fact >, partly rt.pon.ibfc for a boom In Chinese res- taurniUs. People come to them In the hope that if they eat like the Chinese they'll feel ns good as the Chinese. "Now there .re ciore than «f- thousand Chinese restaurants legend has it, the stone marked the spot where King Jnmes and his Wllliamltc followers signed a treaty which was broken by the English "before the Ink on the document wtis dry." "Tills hulk of stone Is the greatest historical fake ever perpetrated," says Herbert. He asserts there Is documentary evidence to prove that the treaty ivn.s signed In the ctimp of King William's army outside Limerick, probably on n table. around New York," said Jimmy Yocng, a patriarch 1» this field. Jimmy, a smiling, ageless gnome who weighs only 110 pounds with a chopstlck In each hand, it perhaps the man here who did most to transform the old off-lhe-bowery Chinese chop suey parlor. He moved It uptown, kicked 'it the te«kwood and mother-of-pearl tables, modernized It. and [iiit In dance bind music. "Thirty to .orty years »KO many decent people wouldn't go Into a Chinese restaurant," he smiled "They didn't think It was respectable. All that la changed now." Today, Yoeng said, only "newcomer* and schoolchildren" order the twin standby^! of the oldtlme Chinese restaurant—chop suey and chow nieln, "People noR r want to cat real cjishcs—the dbhea we eat ourselves." Describe* Ills Favorite Hl« own favorite Is chow sang gal pan, described on his Lun Par Restaurant menu as "fresh white meat of chicken dellciously sauted with hear Is ot bok choy. bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, fresh mushrooms and a touch of ginger." American doctors have a high rate of heart disease. It Is perhaps more than a coincidence, then, that many ot Jimmy's patrons are doctors. "One doctor has sent me more than BO of his patlenU who suffer from high blood pressure," he said. "I order the meals for many of them. Afler 1 talk to them » few minutes I can tell what Is good for them." Jimmy believes Cantonese cook- Ing Is the healthiest In the world because of Its variety, and because It always combines vegetables with mecit. "In American cooking meat 1.1 usually fried, baked or broiled." he said. "But Chinese rooks can prepare meat from 50 to 15 different ways." Yoens thinks (here Is no place equal 1U shark fin soup. But it is expensive—»M a bowl." Sar» Americans E»t Too Much Jimmy la convinced after a lifetime In the business that Americans eat too much—and loo oltcn. "No one can really understand your digestion but yourself" he said. "If your digestion Is poor eat more vegetables. If It is good, then you can eat more meat. "Sometimes people complain that two hours after they eat In a Chines* restaurant they are hungry again They should be grateful for that." Jimmy's solution for all mankind's stomach ills is "moderation." For people who need building up he .as a preparation of chicken, ginger, garlic and a special kind of dark vinegar Imported from China. "I take It myself," he said "I'm getting to an age where I need It. After two bowls, 1 feel wonderful." Aside from a diet high In herbs and vegetables, he feels Chinese are safeguarded against heart ailments because they cton't fret as much as the worry-prisoners of the western world. "I have had ten thousand people work for me," he said. "And 1 don't have an enemy. I never criticize anybody." Trucker of Year Martin Larson, 41 - year - old driver for a St. Paul, Minn,, truck line, was named the truck- Ing Industry's Driver of the Vear. He was selected by a panel of 18 Independent Judges because of his 18-year record of no accidents and because of a highway rescue of »n injured motorist. He will get a trip to Washington and New York and a home freezer •looked with food. Factory at Harrison To Be Closed Down HARBISON, Ark., March IT.
