Arlnmat TIMES, Sot., Jun* I, 1974 »*rrrtvn.L«, · Texas Physicians Indicate Isometric Exercises Dangerous DALLAS. Tex. (AP) -- Popular Isometric exercises may slim many people, but they can bring death to those with high blood pressure, according to two Texas doctors. - The doctors emphasized that Mhey were referring specifically to statis exercise -- tensing muscles against fixed objects --- and not to dynamic exercise which includes jogging, swimming, bicycling, rowing a n d rhythmic calisthenics. The doctors. Jerc H. Mitchell and Norman M. Kaplan of the University of Texas Health Sci ence Center at Dalits, presented their findings on exercise and high blood pressure Friday d u r i n g a symposium sponsored by the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma. Kaplan said high blood pressure leads la heart diseases that kill 3.000 persons a day in the United States, and the wrong kind of exercise may be responsible for a lot of those deaths. *'The kind of exercises you see advertised are the isometric type . . that tnske you look sexy and muscular. They may bo good if you aro a normal person, but can kill you if you have high blood pressure." Kaplan said. "H takes very little actual pressure againt a fixed object to increase the blood pressure," he said. "A person with high blood pressure with very little e f f o r t can have his pressure increased by 50 points and that is a dangerous thing." Kaplan and Mitchell said re .search indicates that dynamic exercises -- "the kind of exercise where you sweat" -may have therapeutic benefits. Bitchell said I h e difference between dynamic and static exercise is that while dynamic exercise produces primarily volume load on the heart, static exercise produces mostly a pressure load. Speaking of dynamic exercise. K a p l a n said, "It actually decreases your blcod pressure." Obituary Former AMPI Employe Tells Of Destroyed Coop Records LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Joe G. Murphey, a former employe of the Associated Milk Producers. Inc.. has told lawyers that he destroyed some records at the AMPI office in Little Rock during the spring of 1971. Murphy said the papers he burned related to his field activities -- or to information that could have affected antitrust suits against AMPI now pending -- but not to any political activities of the dairv cooperative. Murphey's statement is part of the files of Ihe Wright, Lindsey and Jennings law firm in Little Rock. The files were used to compile a report primarily on past AMPI political activities for the current AMPf Board of Directors. Both the 157-page report and 1.185 pages of notes are evidence in the anti-trust case brought by the federal Justice Department. Murphey told Edward L. Wright Sr. on Dec. 10 about his role in the file destruction.- Murphey told Wright: "It was I who told Heinie (E. C. Heininger) and Pete (Colvin A. Peterson Jr. of Watson, Ess. Marshall Enggas, Kansas City. Mo.) about my having destroyed the records...." Heininger is a Kansas City, Mo., attorney for AMPI. "Some time in the spring of 197!. 1 can't be specific about the date, I was told to destroy any Incriminating evidence in the files in Little Rock.' For the life of me. I can't remember whether Dave Parr, Tom Townsend or one of the secretaries told me to do this; I wish I could remember, but I don't want to say specifically under the circumstances and possibly do someone an injustice." Both Parr and Townsend were AMPI employes in Arkansas. Parr has refused to talk with reporters since he pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court here Jan. 11'to a charge of conspiracy in connection with an illegal corporate political- donation. Townsend could not be contacted for comment. " I r e a l l y didn't know w h a t might be considered 'incriminating.' hut al any rate, it is my recollection that I went through the files at the old CAMPA (Central Arkansas Milk Producers Association division of AMPI) office on Forbing Road in Little Rock and pulled out all memoranda from me to Dave about my activities in the field.... "I destroyed these papers by burning them in the incinerator in back of the office. "I can say definitely thai the papers I destroyed related exclusively to my field activities and not ixlitical contributions or money passing in any form....I don't recall ever having reported to Dave Just what papers I destroyed or even that I had in fact burned some."

Oil (CONTCTUED rROM PACK ONT) gram followed the circulation, by consumer advocate Ralph Nader, of staff reports to tl Cost of Living Council which provided the groundwork for December's old-oil price increase. The studies indicated that this price increase would not increase production from existing wells and wouldn't sig nificantty reduce demand. The council staff said a one- dollar increase would, like any increase, be an "arbitrary" choice and would cost the public some S256 milion a month. By that reckoning, the Dec. 19 price increase may already have turned some S\A billion of the consumer's money into oil industry windfall profits. Price Boosted KINGSTON.

Co-Chairmen Are Named For Local MS Fund Drive Cragar Minor and Larry Kilgore were named campaign cochairmen today for Fayelte- ville's participation in the Arkansas Chapter's 1974 fund drive for the National Multiple schlerosis Society. The appointment was announced by Sheffield Nelson, President of Arkansas Louisiana Gas Company, who is directing the statewide drive to raise at least $75.000. Nelson said that the 1574 campaign will run through Fathers' Day, June 16. Kilgore said that the goal for Fayetteville will be $2.500. This is a modest and realistic sum for us in light of the im- sortance of the total program. It is our hope that we can exceed our goal substantially." added Minor. The co-chairmen said that there is a great need for volunteers Monday afternoon, and any persons interested in helping with the drive should call 521 3543 for more information. "Athletes versus MS" will be :he 1974 campaign theme because multiple sclerosis, a crippling disease of the central nervous system, most often attacks young adults between 20 and 40. Kiigore said that while the sports world is most responsive to the drive, the bulk of funds would have to come, as in the past,_ from person-to-person solicitation and house-to-house calls. Since its organization in 1946, NMSS has allocated in excess of $22.5 million in research grants and fellowships to study MS. Last year Arkansas raised $30,000 of which 0 per cent remained in the slate for services to MS patients and their families and for educational purposes. Swollen Rivers Delay Planting LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The Army Corps of Engineers said Friday that farmers along the White and Black rivers in Arkansas may expect additional delays in planting because heavy rains have brought river levels up sharply The six dams in the White River Basin are storing more than 1.3 million acre feet of flood water and are reducing river stages by several feet, the Corps said. However. Thursday's rains are expected to push the 14.7- foot river stag? at Newport to about 20 feet by Sunday. River stages at Augusta were 28.3 feet and might reach 31 feet by Tuesday or Wednesday. The stage at Georgetown (White County) was 1.9 7 feet Thursday and was expected to reach about 20 feet by June 14. Col. Donald G. Weinert. dis- trice engineer, said the Corps wanted to hold the White River stages low enough for farmers in the Bald Knob. Bradford. Augusta and Georgetown areas to continue to plant. However. Weinert said current and predicted heavy rainfall would further delay crop planting. Daley Released CHICAGO ( A P ) -- Mayor Richard J.

The conferees approved a report Thursday after reconciling House and Senate bills in meetings held over a six-wetk period. The f i n a l language hasn't been drafted. Among other provisions, the legislation calls for creation of an 11-member commission to make a comprehensive study of the ethical, social and l e g a l i m - plications of medical research. The commission, composed of experts chosen by the secretary of health, education and welfare, would have as a major assignment a four-month study of the nature of the necessity for research on live fetuses During that period, the government would be forbidden to conduct or support research on a living fetus before or after an induced abortion except to as sure its survival. The commission also would study ways of obtaining informed consent from research subjects, particularly children, prisoners and the mentally ill and retarded, and recommend whether the law should be broadened to protect human subjcts in privately sponsored research.

(AP Wlrcphoto) Textron To Acquire 15 Per Cent Of Lockheed Common Stock NEW YORK (AP) - For the »st three years, the financial roubles of Lockheed Aircraft }orp. have drawn more than he usual public concern attached to the woes of major American employers, Lockheed is big enough that serious troubles under its roof can send economic shudders around the country. It is the nation's biggest defense con- ractor, leading such giants as General Electric and Boeing. It also has some «20 million in debts to banks. »220 million of whch is backed up by a gox r - ernment guarantee to pay off if Lockheed can't. A plan made public this past week would rework Lockheed's debt, end the government's involvement, give the company $100 million in new money -and put 45 per cent of Lock- leed's common stock in the ds of the seventh biggest defense contractor, Textron Inc. "It seems to me that in a few years, peope will look back ind wonder how it was possible :o get such a good deal," said Textron Chairman R. Wiliam Wilier, who would become Lockheed's chairman under the new plan. Lockheed w a s pushed to the brink of financial collapse in 1971 by the bankruptcy of Britain's Rolls-Royce, which had contracted to supply engines for Lockheed's new L1011 Tri- Sta r jet transport. Lockheed, warning that it. oo, faced bankruptcy, per- uaded the government to back t up on up to $250 million in oans f r o m edgy commercial tanks. No government payment ias been needed but Lcck- eed's troubles have continued. Both Textron and Lockheed tressed that the proposed solu- ion was a financial restructure ng -- not a merger or consoli- lation. Textron is a New England- lased conglomerate which is he nation's biggest helicopter maker -- Bell hclicop'.ers -- nd also produces such diverse ·roducts as Talon zippers. Gor- 'iam silver. Eaton papers and ihaeffer pens. Textron would buy 12 million new shares of Lockheed at $5 a hare and spend J25 million for new preferred shares.
