4 I I The Sheridan Sun, Sheridan, Oregon, Thursday, July 9, 1964 ..... T - " r ......... I Pages. From Our Past By KENNETH HOLMES , T _ ............. " Writer ..Hi.rian " " AUTOMOBILE COMES TO OLD ENGLAND When our giant Pan American Interconti- nental Clipper ship landed at London airport, we found ourselves in a veritable hive of activity. It was March 25, and later reports indicated that 600,000 passengers passed through the London airport during March. This year's total of over 1,500,000 passengers is over 250,000 higher than the same time last year, according to the British Ministry of Aviation. And when we got off our plane and went through the easy procedure of British customs, making our way to a special airport bus that would take us downtown, we found that we bad become involved in the traffic of that seething metropolis at Just after eight in the morning. To one who is not used to it, the driving on the left-hand side of the street is a nerve shattering experience. The unconscious re- flexes do not have time to catch up with the fast-moving trucks ("lorries"), buses, taxis and hordes of private cars. We think we have traffic problems m America. It seems to me that the traffic situation in England today and the much greater problems that will arise in the future make ours look insignificant. The English have long been feeling the pressures of the population bulge. This is particularly true of London. The plan for the future is to have a "green area" in a ring around the bulging city--then to develop new suburbs beyond that, especially to the SOuth. London's public transportation system is one of the best in the world--puts New York's to shame. The "underground" (subway) is tops. It is efficient, fast, and the trains run often. The buses are excellent. The suburban trains are rapid and effective. But all these put together cannot keep up with the automobile revolution that is taking place. When one tries cross country travel in Britain, the driver is confronted with narrow roads that keep the average speed at about 35 miles per hour. The roads are narrow and get narrower at every town and village. There are some "carriage-ways" (freeways), and there will be many more in the future, but they cannot begin to keep up with the growing traffic. Let me tell you about a town I visited in south ccast of England. It is the ancient Farmers' Are Entitled To Gasoline Tax Refund city of Chichester. On the town hall there is displayed a Roman inscription going all Refund for the gasoline tax the way back to the latter part of the first applied for now is for the fis- century, A.D. The general plan of Chichester cal year from July 1, 1963 to is that of a Roman camp ("Castra", from the following June 30, 1964. which the "chester" part of the name is derived). There is the base of an ancient Roman wall encircling the modern cityo There 4 H are entrances at all four points of the compass where the Roman gates used to be. The two mm main streets ("high streets")pass through these gates and cross at the center of the city near the Medieval cathedral. They are about thirty feet wide. They are lined with shops of all kinds, including a very modern Woolworth store. At the center of the town where they cross there is a landmark which, next to the Cathedral, is Chtchester's most prized possession--a market cross, about twenty feet across and shaped like a king's crown, that was put up in 1501. When built, it was intended to be a spot for the farmers to display and sell their wares when they came into town. It is an elegant example of Tudor construction and really something that everyone comes to see. There is just one problem: The market cross was never meant to allow for the pas- sage of auto, bus and truck traffic as they converge at the center of town. There has to be a policeman stationed there at all times to keep the traffic moving and to prevent clogging. Pedestrians and bicycles don't make it easier either. What should the city of Chichester do? Tourism is a major factor in the town's economy. The market cross is a priceless legacy from the past. But the automobiles are increasing every day. Parking lots are being built in several places, but they are only part of the answer. There is a squabble going on among merchants and citizens and city officials about what to do with the market cross. Probably they will end up taking it apart carefully and recon- structing it in a spacious park. But there are those who want to leave it where it is. The problems of Chichester symbolize the problems faced by the British as their popu- lation and the modern machine age thrust themselves upon a landscape from an ancient past. |||||||m||||||||||||m|||||||||||| ||| O U r ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| ||||| .: :.. =Community's Health = = =. =_ = IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIBy BRYAN C. V[ITHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIilIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIll Today more questions are being asked about fats, particularly for adults, than about any other group of foods. Health-minded citizens have been quick to take action after seeing reports that have linked heart attacks with blood cholesterol levels. Conscientious people change their food patterns seeking to reduce the amounts of certain kinds of fats, notably the saturated fats which appear to be partly responsible for high blood choles- terol levels. Efforts to modify diets have frequently been wasted and may even be risky. What the dieters do not know is that the cholesterol- lowering diets will fail unless they are under medical supervision. The reasons for this are as follows: No individual can know how much cholesterol his blood contains until it is determined by laboratory tests. Thus, he cannot know whether any diet changes have increased or decreased his blood cholesterol level unless R is scienti- fically measured. The individual's total diet must be precisely regulated to lower blood cholesterol. Substitution of severalfood items without overall dietary control accomplishes little in reducing cholesterol. Reducing the amount or completely eliminating a certain food of proven nutritional value could be detrimental to health. Without precise knowledge of the nutrRional content of specific food products, the average person is unable to replace the nutrients he loses when he decides to stop eating certain foods, and thus runs the risk of depriving his body of some essential nutrients The effect of regular exercise and avoid- ance of overweight appears to be as important as the elimination of specific foods high in saturated fats in lowering blood cholesterol But each person must be evaluated individually by their family physician. Some may even re- quire specific medicines to lower blood cholesterol Yamhlll County citizens should remember the old adage. ',An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," before they start adding to or leaving out foods without medical supervision. Food misinformation is harm- ful. R not only wastes money but deprives the individual of good eating habRs and threatens health through misinterpretation of facts. Adults should also remember that their attitudes and habits are quickly picked up by children It is important that youngsters learn early that good eating habits pay big dividends. ' qnsurance Against Cancer" Just about everybody has heard about the seven danger signals of cancer. They are repeated over the radio and are in maga- zines and newspapers continually. Yet, hqw many times do we really do something when these signals occur? The following story is true. Although it did not happen in our area, R is typical of an all too frequent occur- rence. Betty and Barbara, both married wRh three children, are in their middle 40's. They have been friends for 30 years. They have many of the same friends and the same family physician. One day Barbara confides in her friend Betty that she has been very tired of late. Not only that, but she has lost weight and has had vaginal bleeding which has been very irregular. This discharge has been occurring for several months. Although these conditions have disturbed her a great deal, she has not been to see her doctor. She is afraid that they indicate something quite serious. Barbara explains that she has been just too busy to see her physician. She has been involved in the preparations for her eldest daughter's forthcoming wed- ding, her son's graduation, and active in her social and service organizations. She has never found time to call her doctor. Betty explains to her that she has been to see her doctor annually for a complete physical including a "Pap" smear. Fortunately every- thing turns out to be fine each yeas. Betty convinces her friend to see the doctor. Barbara's examination by the doctor re- veals the dreaded news: cancer of the cer- vlx far advanced with a spread into other organs. An operation is advised to save her life if possible. Will she survive, and for how long? --If, on the other hand, Bar- bara had done what Betty had been doing for all of these years, an annual checkup and '"Pap" smear, this type of cancer would have been found very early and she could have enjoyed a normal and haPPY life for many years to come. In some countries all females over 25 years of age are required by the law to have a Pap smear taken each year. Data collected in some eastern European countries for over three years shows a reduction of the most advanced cases of cancer of the cervix with a corresponding increase in localized cases, which give better chance of longer survival after treatment. In our country, we strongly suggest that all women over 25 have a "Pap" smear taken once a year. If all would comply, the mortality due to this type of cancer would be reduced to almost zero and the survival rate to almost 100 per cont. o Mill Overnight guest of Mlilie Ev- family, his sister, Mrs. Dar- ers was Rita Abbot ofHalfmoon othy Shantz of Portland, Mr. Bay, Calif. and Mrs. Dick Headings of Leb- anon and Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Mr. and Mrs. Dave Robert- Bones of Sheridan. son and Avis had dinner Sat- urday with his parents, Mr. Mr. and Mrs. Iloff Harris and Mrs. Robert Rohertson of and Larry, accompanied by Mr. Sheridan. and Mrs. Benny Miller and children and Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Camping out on the Siletz Shatter of Salem, drove to De- river over the weekend were trait Lake for the July 4 week- Mr. and Mrs. Carl Yoder and end.

State Fair Books Out Yamhill County farmers are entitled to claim refunds each year for the federal excise tax on gasoline used on a farm for farming purposes, ac- cording to Hugh J. Hickerson, Yarnhill county extension agent. Quality of entries in the an- nual 4-H Flower Arrangement Contest held each year in con- Junction with the Yamhill County Fair will be much improved this year because of tips given by experts in the field. Some 45 Yamhill County 4-H members, who will be compet- ing in the contest, received val- uable pointers in prize winning flower arrangements from Mrs. A1 Dixon at Dixon-Dell Nur- sery in Dundee and Mrs. K. A. Hartzel of Ken-Mar Gardens in McMinnville. The 4-H'ers also received instructions in vegetable and flower judging that will prove helpful for those who take part in the competition. The flower arrangement and judging competition has long been a highlight of the county fair, and officials say this year's event promises to he the best ever held* The flower arrangement con- test is scheduled for Thursday, SALEM - Oregon State Fair 1964 Premium List is off the press and has been mailed to former exhibitors, Howard Maple, state fair manager, said today. All information needed for making entries in the State Fair is included in the book- lets, Maple said. Closingdates for entries in various depart- ments are also given in the premium book. Many special awards are lis- ted including $25 merchandise certificates for the tallest corn and largest squash; a covered silver vegetable dish for the best box of frnitj and an elec- tric range for the winner of the most points in the food de- partment. The premium lists may be had by a request to the state fair. Forms for applying for the re- fund are now available through the county extension office, courthouse, McMinnville. Any owner, tenant or oper- ator of a farm who buys gas- aline for use on his farm is eligible to claim a refund, Hick- erson said. The refund amounts to four cents on each gallon of gasoline used on a farm for farming purposes during the 12 month period beginning July 1 and ending the following June 30. Completed claim forms are sent to the office of District Director of Internal Revenue. Claims can be filed after June 30 but not later than September 30. Farmers should have suffic- ient records to enable the In- ternal Revenue Service to var- ify the accuracy of the amount claimed, Hickerson said. Diesel fuel and special motor fuels are also given relief on federal excise taxes that are used on a farm for farmingpur- ' poses, he said.

GUYMON OIUGON STATE GAME COMMISSION .Area 4-Hers .Scheduled .,At Contest FACTS POINT WAY TO STEELHEAD PRODUCTION An important breakthrough in steelhead production by the game commission may well point the way to where hatchery contribution to the fishery may be substantial instead of the nebulous quantity of the past. This was disclosed by Harry Wagner, fishery research bi- ologist for the game commis- sion, who said facts discov- ered show conclusively that steelhead youngsters reared to exacting criteria show good re- turns, while those not so raised are almost a total loss as far as any return to the fishery is concerned* Wagner pointed out that the main factors in successful rearing are size and smolti- fication at the time of release, although several other factors are closely interwoven. Smol- tification is a physiological change in the young steelhead associated with seaward ml- gration. A migrant to the sea is known as a smoR. To make the size-small fac- tors even more important, Wag- ner said, is the critical size limits which may be no more than a centimeter or two to swing the pendulum to good re- turns or in the other direction in the summer runs of steel- head is the Siletz. R took several years of cau- tious exploratory work before two factors began to stand out. On the Alsea and Wil- son, it soon became apparent that size and smolting factors were keys to good returns- These factors were interlocked closely with many variables in- ciuding condition or vigor of the fish, growth rates, and stocking time. The general picture which emerged, how- ever, is one of increasing mar- tne survival (return of adult fish) with the stocking of lar- ger migrants within certain limits. Data gathered showed that steelhead released from the hatcheries under 5 1/2 inches in length have low survival, and the survival decreases rapidly with decreasing size at release. As an example, no returns were recorded from one lot of steel- head youngsters released at 25 to the pound (4 I/2 inches in length), and only a few adult fish returned from another lot of 11,000 released at approx- limately the same size. The calculated return of adult fish from this latter group Was only 3/10 of I per cent. In direct contrast, of 8,700 youngsters which reached the to mediocre returns or a total smolt stage at 5.5 to the pound loss. (7 !/2 inches in length)aug- These and other facts are lers reported taking 2 per cent born out on the Alsea and Wll = as returning adults. It was son rivers where anglers are determined from the angler enjoying spectacular steelhead catch and counts at the Alsea fishing, almost unbelievable re- turns of hatchery-produced fish, both of which are a dir- ect result of the game com- mission's investigations into hatchery production of steel- head. The first work along these lines was by the Washington Department of Game. That ag- ency's studies opened the Way for continued research in sev- eral unanswered phases con- cerned with production meas- urements, fish condition, stock- ing, and the relationship of size at release to the timing of adult returns as well as the average size of adult fish. Dr. John Rayner, who heads the research investigations, stated that incompleteinforma- tion points strongly to similar criteria for spring chinook as for steelhead. The game commission began its investigations into artificial production of salmonoid fish more than a dozen years ago for the simple reason that hat- chery salmon and steelhead showed almost no returns. The commission felt, and rightly so, that it Was actually a det- riment to mass produce on a doubtful hatchery progran when it could be that natural re- production might be doing it better. That the game commission chose the right path is well documented by the excellent re- turns of spring chinook on the Umpqua river and the excel- lent increase of steelhead in the Alsea and Wilson rivers. The Sandy, a third key steel- head stream is beginning to feel the effects of the research program. Another stream showhig marked improvement fish rack that adult returns from this small plant werewell over 5 per cent of the number of youngsters released. Catch and recorded escapement is considered minimal measure- merits of return. Even more striking was the vlant ofl5,500yonngsters smol- ling at 7.7 to the pound (around 7 inches in length) where the survival was recorded at well above 9 per cent of the total released. Anglers reported taking 3.7 per cent as return- ing adults. That same year twoother lots of youngsters were planted in the Alsea which ran 13 fish to the pound (over 5.5 inches in length) and 26 to the pound, Out of the 13 per pound group less than 1 per cent returned as adults, and there were no recordings from the second. According to Wagner, the breaking point in terms of sur- Gopher Valleu Mrs. Harry Wilder was ad- mitted to McMinnville hospital July 1. She is in traction and will remain in the hospital at least 10 days. Miss Ella Wilder of Gold Beach was a weekend guest at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Wilder. Fri- day and Saturday she visited with her mother in McMlnn- ville hospital. Mrs. Florence Corner of Sheridan and Mrs. Ralph Hart- sen visited their daughter and sister, Mrs. Harry Wilder, last Friday an d Monday in the Mc- Minnville hospital. Word was received from To- ledo that the Wilder's grandson, Mark Wilder, is recovering from bronchitis very slowly. The same day they received word their other grandson,Jef- frey Eisler, was down with bronchitis and their son, Ray, has the flu. Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Hansen held an outdoor barbecue the 4th of July.

Head Named For UGN Campaign Sidney M. Huwaldt of Mc- Minnville has been appointed campaign chairman of the Yam- hill County United Good Neigh- bors, according to Charles Freeling, UGN president. Hu- waldt will be assisted by three area chairmen from Newherg, Sheridan-Willamina and Mc- Minnvilie in the county-wide campaign which is scheduled to begin Oct. 1, 1964. The 1964 UGN campaign chairman is manager of Dari- gold Milk Farms of McMinn- vKle. He has served two terms as president of the McMinnville Dad's Club and is a member of Elks and Kiwanis. A native of Nebraska, he served in the Navy in the South Pacific dur- ing World War If. He has liv- ed in McMinnville since 1946.

Smoj/' SyS: With the larger smolts, how- ever, Wagner indicates there is a greater percentage of jacks ( 2-year-old fsh) in the total adult returns. When large smolts were released, Jacks made up about 15 per cent of the returning adults. Although few in number, the percentage of 4-year-aids in the returns is related toyoungsters released at the lower end of the breaking point. Apparent- ly fish released at a smaller size spend a longer time at sea before returning on the first spawning migration. The percentage of 3-year- olds in the returns increases until a release size of around Don't let  get out of lmad! 9 per pound is reached.
