YOUR FAMILY'S HEARTS - HOW TO KEEP THEM
In 1970, some 666,000 Americans, of whom about 171,000
were under the age of 65, died of coronary heart disease (CHD)
and many more were disabled by the same disorder. In North
Carolina, over 9,000 people die each year from CHD.
Experimental and clinical studies have identified a number of
' risk factors" associated with susceptibility to CHD. Though
there are no guaranteed ways to prevent CHD at this time, it is
important that you be aware of the risk factors. Perhaps the most
important factor for you to be aware of is that the group most
susceptible to CHD is the male, 45-64 years of age. This means
that many of your husbands, fathers and friends are in or will
soon be in this high risk group. Though there is nothing you can
do about sex or age, there are steps that you can take to try to
reduce conditions that contribute to the other risk factors
associated with CHD.

Following the Congressional
ban ton secret U. S. aid to
UNITA and FN LA, Henry
Kissinger, in testimony before
the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, said that the Ford
Administration ' is now seriously
considering overt financial
aid"to the two groups.
Kissinger claimed that there
are now 1 1 ,000 Cuban troops in
Angola, and said that "it is the
first time that the U. S. has
failed to respond to Soviet
military moves outside their
immediate orbit." Kissinger also
said this was "the first time the
Congress has halted the
executive's action while it was in
the process of meeting that kind
of threat," despite the fact that
Congress eventually cut off
funds for the war in Indochina.

history of heart disease in the family.
These may sound humorous, but many of our day to day
health and food habits make us high risk potentials for coronary
heart disease. Some recommendations for keeping hearts healthy
1. Have yearly physical checkups to detect high blood
pressure, high blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels and
irregularities in glucose tolerance test, which might indicate
Follow doctor's instructions if any problems are detected; a
checkup may be especially crucial for those persons with a family
history of CHD.
2. Maintain desirable weight.
3. Exercise regulary and at a moderate rate.
4. Reduce as many of the daily stresses of life as possible.
5. Reduce smoking and drinking.
6. Eat a well balanced diet that includes the recommended
amounts of nutrients.
These are no drastic changes or complicated food preparations,
but just a few foods you could eat less of and a few changes you
may have to make to reduce risks of heart disease. Among these
are cutting down on foods high in cholesterol, reducing
consumption of fats and replacing a great percentage of fat that
is saturated (solid at room temperature) with fat that is
polyunsaturated. To limit intake of saturated fats:
Ea' fish, poultry and veal more often than beef, lamb or
Select lean cuts of meat and trim off visible fat.
Eat less bacon and sausage, cold cuts and franks.
Avoid deep fat frying, especially with solid fats.
Use margarine and vegetable oils that are highly
polyunsaturated, instead of butter and animal fats.
Substitute skimmed or low-fat milk for whole milk and
cream; sherbet and ice milk for ice cream.

THE VOICE EFFECTIVE USE OF
The public speaker does not have to use
articifial voice tricks. If you become excited you
will shout. It this is your habit, fine. If it is not,
then it is wise to use such an approach when
speaking in public. (For instance, Oral Roberts
does not become excited when delivering a
The quality of a public speech is not measured
by the quantity of sound. A forceful statement,
spoken quietly, sincerely, and slowly, can be more
powerful than the loudest outburst of words.
You can be effective, if your voice js adequately
loud, clear and distinct, the pitch or tone of voice
is suitable for ones age a.id sex, and the utterance
is suitable to the meaning the speaker desires to
impress upon the listeners.
Give, your points a chance to impress themselves
on the listeners. Even if you are a rapid talker,
pause, pause after a sentence or a significant
passage. Enlarge your vocabulary, for it equips you
for all kinds of speaking.
