6 The Sheridan Sun, Sheridan, Oregon, Thursday, July 7, 1966 Researchers Say Growing Old Related To Attitude Growing old is simply a ques- tion of mind over matter--ff you don't mind, it doesn't mat- ter. That is the concensus of researchers in the psychology of aging at the Veterans Ad- ministration Hospital in Hous- ton, Texas. Regardless of their age, per- sons who are effective andpro- ductive do not think of them- selves of growing old. Ap- parently they are not aware that they are aging. In sharp contrast, the re- searchers observed that in- dividuals who have difficulty in their adaptation to later life tend to occupy themselves with thoughts of growing old even while they are relatively young. An integral part of the eval- uation included assessing the attitudes of different age groups toward growing old. This in- cluded exploring the role of the self-lmage and the attitudes about one's body in the pro- cess of aging. The results of this study point to techniques that hopefully will be helpful in motivating persons who have difficulty in facing the problem of aging. As the average age of Am- erican war veterans passes 46 years, the expanding research program in aging and the health problems of senior cltizenses- tablished by the Veterans Ad- ministration has been funct- ioning long enough to begin to report its findings. Of the 165 VA hospitals, 38 hospitals and a number of out- patient clinics are conducting research programs in this field. Special laboratories for aging research are established in seven VA hospitals. Thirty- two cooperative studies, in- volving three to 30 hospitals each, are directly related to the research. A program of "satellite la- boratories" nourishes new con- cepts in the problems of aging In these the VA is obtaining the cooperation of a dis- tingulshed group of scien- tists and physicians who are not otherwise associated with the agency. To them the VA offers facilities and staff as- Dates Outlined .At :State Fair The 1966 Oregon State Fair will be held Aug. 28 through sistance in nearby VA hospitals for the advance of their own ideas for research. Concerned with the physical aspects of aging, researchers at the Sepulveda VA hospital observed a progressive en- largement of the heart and changes of metabolism during the aging process. They noted a decrease in protein albumIn carried to the heart muscle,and a decrease in hyaluronic acid present in organs having an increasing amount of connective tissue. The loss of hyluronic acid would account for many of the characteristics associated with aging, they contended. In the animal laboratory they were able to demonstrate an increase in albumin and hyluronic acid in the vital organs following the administration of the fe- male hormone estrogen. While an expected increase has occurred in the number of patients suffering from the chronic diseases which affect older persons, the VA hospitals have had an increase of 33 per cent in the number of arterio- sclerotic heart disease pa- tients, and an increase of 50 per cent in the number of pa- tient suffering strokes and other brain damage accompanying ag- ing. Efforts have been intensified in the investigation of heart disease, strokes, emphysema, cancer, diabetes, rheumatism and mental illness, the VA re-. vealed. Emphasis Is being placed upon new ideas and new approaches to the multitude of problems presented by aging and the increasing population of senior citizens. Certain complex body sugars called mucopolysaccharides (MPS), always decrease with age, according to research workers at the VA hospital in West Roxbury, Mass. They also found an increased resistance to drying by the MPS while the water content decreased with age. Three major studies now un- der way represent the scope of the VA research in aging. A long-term study of the aging process in healthy men was launched by the VA outpatient clinic at Boston. It will de- llneate selective anatomic, bi- ochemical, physiologic, and psychosociai aspects of aging In 1500 Initially healthy men ranging in age from 5 to 65 years. The subjects volunteer to return for periodic exam- This study is expected to provide descriptions of the nor- mal aging processes, prediction of later outcomes, and corre- lation of variables. The sub- Jects were screened for nor- malRy and will return /or ex- tensive examinations at inter- yals of three tofive years. Each test series comprises about 15 hours of examination. The Spanish - American War veterans study is a collab- orative effort by trained teams from Brandeis University of Chicago. Surviving veterans of some of the 14,000 Spanish:- American War veterans who have been receiving treatment at VA hospitals across the coun- try are interviewed by these teams. The object is to at- tempt to learnwhat factors have Influenced the survival of this group of veterans who now ave- rage 87 years of age. The Domiciliary Diet Fat Study at the VA Center In Los Angeles, is an observation of 400 domiciliary members who have had their diets altered so that normal fat has been mostly replaced by unsaturated fats. This experiment is double blind, which means that neither the patients nor their doctors know which patients are receiving ex- perimental diets and which get regular diets. The six surviving veterans of the IndlanWars and the Spanish- American War veterans are the oldest survivIng U.S. war vet- erans. They are followed by more than 2 million veterans of World War I, who now av- erage 71 years of age. The 21.5 million World Wdr TT veterans average 46 years old and the 5.7 million veterans of the Korean Conflict who had some service in World War II average 36 years. An additional 4.5 million Korean Conflict vet- erans who had no service in World War II average two years younger. The need for intensive study of the problems of aging is pointed up by the fact that cen- sus estimates indicate that 28 million Americans will have passed the age of 60 by the year 1970, an increase of 4 million above the total which had reached that age in 1960, the VA said. Knowledge gained from the VA research programs in aging will be used to provide better treatment for illnesses which beset senior citizens and will be used to make their lives Labor Day, Sept 5. it was lnations for the rest of their more comfortable and more announced in Salem by Mrs. lives, productive.

IHC I, Farm Safety Week Brings Timely Tips On Pesticides National Farm Safety Week will be held this month and this is a good time to review how safely we handle pesticides on the farm, reports Wayne Rob-. errs, Yamhlll county extension agent. In the past I0 years many and varied new chemicals have been developed to aid in the pro- duction of agricultural com- modities, Many of these chem- icals are very poisonous to hu- mans. All should be handled as being poisonous, and extreme safety followed in handling. Carelessness on the part of an operator with any type of a pesticide could result in death or serious illness to some un- suspecting person. Local Golfer Wins Tourne00 A young Sheridan golfer, Jay Wells, captured first place in the 8-12 year old fire last week in the county-wide Junior golf tournament. Sponsored by the McMinn- ville Junior Chamber of Com- merce, the tournament saw boys in three age groups play 9 holes at each of three county golf courses, Michelbook Country Club, Riverwood and Bayou Country club. Young Wells, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bob Wells, shot a 132 gross on the three courses Winner of the 15-17 flfte, who will go into the state champion- ships, shot a gross 117 on the three. KILL ATHLETE'S FOOT GERM One application of T-4-L stops itch and burning in MINUTES or your 48c back. In 3 to 5 days, infected skin sloughs off to ex- pose mere germs for the kill. Then watch HEALTHY skin appear! TODAY at Sheridan Drug Company Some very simple pre- cautions to follow in the handling of these chemicals would be to first read the label on each pesticide container before it is used. All pesticides vary in their chemical nature and the manufacturer knows besthow to handle it. Store all agricul- tural chemicals in their ori- ginal, labeled containers. Make sure you keep them out of reach of children and pets. Chemicals cannot be properly iden- tified unless they are in their original labeled containers and this should be followed by lock- ing the pesticides up in a shed or cupboard away from any feed or seed materials. Also, apply agricultural chemicals as directed, only on crops specified and In the amounts specified at the times specified on the label instruc- tions. Hundreds of thousands of dollars go into findIng out these application and timing data by the manufacturers. Dis- pose of empty containers safely. It is next to impossible to re- move all material from a con- tainer and these empty contain- ers contain small amounts of pesticides which could cause harm to children or pets. Finally know the basic active ingredients in each material you use. Then in case of an accident you will be able to tell your doctor which chemical is causing the trouble and he will be able to counteract Itquickly. Always call a physician or get a person to the hospital im- mediately if poisoning from ag- ricultural chemicals is sus- }ected.
