inpOGRADS BY MARY WHITMORE HpME ECONOMIST OFIQE. YOUR FAMILY'S HEARTS - HOW TO KEEP THEM HEALTHY 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. A well-known magazine featured an article a few years ago entitled'Ways to Murder Your Husband". Some of the sure ways mentioned were pump him full of alcohol, keen him sitting down. salt his food liberally, keep the coffee pot going, keep cigarettes Passed ,hc Mili,ary Aid attend. nandy, don't let him sleeD at nielit finsist on watchinc the late w,,u-" ' provision show), nag him often, feed him sweets galore, feed him lots of tats Ibnry Kbsi Albdos Atspb Question 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. .t trmiMYII WW THfCnatH1T-il.8 Loss Than Ono-Third North Corolinicns Aro Tdifco Advantage of Froo Health Program of Medicaid Following the hearings, the especially highly saturated ones, be sure he never has a vacation, and be certain he is overweight. Remember your job will be easier if he is a diabetic, has high blood pressure or has a 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 are: 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 diabetes. 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 pork. 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. !tf.tft .fewer Commercial baked goods and mixes containing whole milk and eggs.

Roxboro Street. The public is invited to Card of Thcnks Yes, We All Talk By Marcus H. Boulwar e 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 sermon.) 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 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. READERS: For my Bibliography on Snoring, send three 1 3-cent stamps to M. H.

S. funds arc being used directly or indirectly to recruit American mercenaries, Kissinger answered, "it depends on how you define indirectly."

RALEIGH - Less than one-third of the eligible young North Carolinians arc taking advantage of a free comprehensive health screening, diagnosis and treatment program offered through the state's Medicaid program. The Division of Social Services of the N. C. Department of Human Resources reports that only 43,805 youngsters under 21 years of age were screened by the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment program (EPSDT) during the past fiscal year. The Division estimates that 144,700 young people in North Carolina are eligible for this free health screening and treatment program. All children under 21 years of age in families receiving Aid to Families With Dependent Children are eligible, as well as, other children in families that have been denied the support of one or both from the home or God bless all of you. North Family of Mrs. Helen A. Secretary Wade. Carolina of Human Resources David T. Flaherty voiced concern in Raleigh this week over the lack of participation in the EPSDT program. "All of us know that children are our greatest resource. F. PSDT strengthens that resource by offering a practical and humanitarian method to prevent needy children from being handicapped by conditions that could lead to chronic and disabling ailments later in their lives. Health experts estimate that more than o n e -h a I f of these handicapping conditions in children can be prevented or corrected by early health care." Flaherty stated. ''It is readily understandable why medical attention is not a poor family's first priority, unless it is a serious emergency. We have both a moral and an e c o n o m i c obligation to assist these children without financial means. We are faced with a choice of helping them realize a life of achievement or a life of being handicapped by The federal government pays 68.03 percent of the cost and the remainder is shared by state and county governments. Citing the value of the screening program, Flaherty said that of the 43.805 youngsters who were screened last year. 17.924 needed treatment. The I PSDT program in North Carolina is administered by county social services departments. The actual screening is given by this health county health departments and treatment, or private physicians disability and disease. This is a simple choice when the ultimate costs are compared. Basically, we are concerned with doing what is right. At the same time, we have a strong belief that preventive care, especially for children, is the most effective way to deal with this massive problem." Flaherty emphasized. He also stated that it's a shame that over 100,000 eligible youngsters in North Carolina are not getting screening son B; paint' -(1 ,n' 1 J . A i O"' , .
