BEKNS TIMES Washington Bureau WASHINGTON--Many arm- c h a i r quarterbacks a r e regretting they ever left the living room. Knee injuries, achilles tendon fractures and muscle pulls are of lite Tor across the becoming a way weekend athletes nation, according lo the medical the Amateur adviser for Athletic Union. "More 'weekend warriors' arc getting hurt these days than athletes involved in organized sports," says Dr. Anthony Daly, an orthopedic surgeon who has travelled around the world with U . S . amateur swimming, gymnastics and basketball teams. T h e neighborhood touch football game has become a major source of muscle pulls, sprains and far more serious injuries that result in lengthy hospilization and costly operations. Blame it on inadequate warmups, Daly said, referring to the fact that few "just-fpr- fun" athletes properly exercise their heels, knees and hamstring muscles before participating. RESULT The result, Daly said in an interview at the Amateur Athletic Union convention here, are hobbling injuries that can take up to six months to fully heal. Daly said that one of every four patients who enters his Los Swiss Voters To Decide li Nation Will Oust Foreigners GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) -- The Swiss began voting Saturday in a two-day referendum on wheather tooust 540,000 foreigners on grounds they are changing the character of this sober orderly nation. Results are to be announced Sunday evening. All major political parties have urged that the proposal be voted down, and polls predicted it will lose by a comfortable margin. But there is a large undecided vote, and government officials are privalely less sure of rejection than the pollsters. The movemenl against foreign workers has been 'boosted by unchecked inflation, growing fears of world economic recession and a tendency lo blame foreigners tor high prices and School Denies Students Paid To Question Miils CONWAY, Ark.

Jacqueline, the widow, of 'resident John F. Kennedy and now Mrs. Aristotle Onassis, drew the illustrations and Lee, divorced from Polish Stanislas Radziwill, the cpaign. Traditional haven of foreign urists and money, and host to ome United Nations offices nd hundreds of Internationa rganizations, Switzerland has highest density of foreign rs in the world. There are more than one mil on non-Swiss among the 6.3 .illion inhabitants. The refer ndum is on a proposal to limi witzerland's foreign population o 500,000 by Jan. 1, 1978. It wa. aunched two years ago by i mall right-wing group which rganized the "National Cam a i g n A g a i n s t Over oreignization of People an Homeland." Switzerland's direct democra y government permits any pr. ate group to force a nation vide referendum on any issu nee it collects the signature f at least 50,000 Swiss citizens he process is called an Native. recently rince vrote about their adventures. In the magazine excerpt, Lee describes how she and her sister, then 17 and 22 years old, went to a musicale at a house in Paris and felt out of place among the titled guests. Lee's copy describes, and lacqueline's illustration pic- lures, how Lee felt when her underclothing fell to her feet under.her long dress as she introduced to the Indian ambassador "all wound up in turbans."

Achilles tendon tears and knee problems are the most common of these injuries, he s a i d , although orthopedic specialists have been swamped with cases of upper leg muscle pulls and lorn ligaments. Ironicallyi lhe recent increase in injuries is partly attributed lo the success of a nationwide campaign. The nation apparently is responding favorably to calls by the President's Council on Physical Fitness and other groups for increased participation in sports. "We've become more the participant than the spectator," Daly commented. "We're more athletically minded." WARMUP MISSING Nevertheless, he added, most weekend athletes don't bother to warm up the way their professional counterparts do. Most amateurs neglect lo strelch their heel "cords." That oversight frequently results in a snap in the achilles tendon, followed by a week in the hospital and a bill, includng operations, of about $2,500. The knee is one of the body parts that is most succeptible to injury. Damaged knee cartilage can never be repaired and must be removed, an operation which must be followed by extensive rehabilitation exercises. Daly said football is the most dangerous of the activities in which "weekend warriors" participate often. It is, in fact, dangerous at all levels; in 2972, there were 1,157 injuries in the National Fottball League, which Planners face Brief Agenda The Fayctlcville Planning Commission will face a short, three item agenda nl their rogmilrly scheduled meeting Tuesday at City Hull.

O n e of every knew nothing about to gracefully stoop lending I them, or and pick them all up underneath my skirt. Somehow I managed not to let it be seen, and spent the rest of the evening hopping like a toad, clasping my ankles," Lee wrote. The book, which Lee says her mother found earlier this year in her attic, is to be published by Delacorle Press. ·Ill NEWS BRIEFS eighl Holley Named Acting Extension Service Director Andrew Leon Holley, currently stale agent and specialist leader in charge of agricultural programs for the Co-operative NEW YORK (AP) -- The high cost of'money is causing iiiuiy companies to lighten up on credit, postpone expansion md worry about a buildup of inventories, a nationwide Associated Press survey shows. The biggest byproduct of the c a u t i o u s , uncertain mood among the nation's businessmen is effiency. Many f i r m s say they're watching costs more closely than ever. "We've become super-careful about what we buy and when we buy it," says Robert Harrison, president of John Wanamaker, a Philadelphia-based department store chain. "There just isn't any room for sloth," says Bernard Gordon, manager of Seattle's Jafco Callog Shopping Service. Many bankers, meanwh report that consumers also are changing financial habits be cause of money's expense. So phistication about money is- in creasing, they say. 'The consumer today reads business news, watches t h e market, checks interest rates and puts his money where he can make the most," says EC Penick, head of Arkansas' big ;est bank, Wortlicn Bank £ 'rust Co. FUF.L PUESSUBE Rclailers and manufacturers say they're feeling the presure of tight -- and therefore ex- icnsive -- money in various ways. "We were four days late in paying an invoice recently," says Stanley Waldheim, president of a large Milwaukee furniture store. "And we had three long distance calls that from lhe company controller of wanting lo know where check was. Everybody's uptight. The pressure is on. 'Sixty days ngo we could get all the money we wanted, but had to pay the price. Now we can pay lhe price, but Hie money's not available. The banks are loaned out." Says Waldheim, "We used lo cater lo customers who bought on lime," he notes. "Thnl's how we made money. Now it's completely reversed. We're seeking the customer who can pay cash." At the same time some bankers report consumers are seeking more credit. "Peopl? are getting more in hock lhan Ihcy ised lo." says Newman Walt Jr., president, of the Adirondack 1'rusl Co., Saratoga Springs, N.Y. Paradoxically, though in- 'lalion is making dollars less valuable every day, iMtincss- mcti arc crying over money's cost and scarcity. EXPANSION POSTPONED ... High interest rales are forcing some lo postpone expansion.. Gabe Rutherford, an Arkansas steel fabricator, says, "I'd like lo (expand) 'but I'm fearful thai if f borrow at 10 per cent it (interest) might go to '0 per cent, I'd hate Thnl's one of the main down that. reasons we're nol building now." Nor do many rmmufiiclurers foresee easy money soon. While short-term interest rates may decline over the next Ihree months; Ihey expect long-term rates to remain high 'and perhaps even rise. · Inventories, representing Extension Service in Rock, has been named Little acting professional players requires knee surgery every year. TRAINING HELPS Basketball, b a s e b a l l and tennis injuries are on the rise on the amateur level, Daly pointed out. Particiapnts appear more knowledgeable, and ther- fore less injury-prone, in such Iraining activilies as jogging and weightlifting, the doctor noted. How does a sometimes-athlete stay out of the hospital? has these hints: Daly --Do stretching exercises and light jogging prior lo lhe game or match. --Get lo know your physical limils so thai you can avoid the "overextension" lhat results sports in avoidable injuries. -Learn lhe proper Items Stolen SPRINGDALE--Mrs. Argie Vladden of 42C Applegale Drive told police Saturday that a dress had been stolen from her closet and a blanket and bed s p r e a d taken from h e r clothesline earlier in the day.
