The Social Security Law per- mits such a procedure for in- competent adults and minor children. The representative payee" must use these funds for the individual he represents. Miss use of these benefits can result in the prosecution of the representative payee, as an Opp resident recently discov- ered. U.S. Magistrate F. E. Leonard, Jr., sentenced Jesse N. Knowles, Jr., to one year probation and ordered that he make restituion of $2161 he misused between December 1967 and January 1971. Knowles' ll-year-old-son, Jesse III, never lived with him while he received his son's checks. , These checks were misappropriated by Knowles and this resulted in his prosecution. Vernon A. Kilpatrick, Man- ager of the Andalusia Social Security Office said, "if you act as representative payee you are required to maintain a re- cord of the amounts you receive and how they are dispersed." The money you receive is to be used for the care of the bene- ficiary and any surplus should be invested in a savings account Route 2, Florala, Alabama.

D, popular teenage snack, is fine. Heart Association in Birming- Wetumpka, President of the Alabama Heart Association, thinks they are. "Young people are often overweight and habits esta- blished early in life are hard to break," he says. "Obesity can accelerate many cardio- vascular diseases -- heart at- tack, high blood pressure (hy- pertension), stroke and conges- tive heart failure." These are only medical terms to teenagers, but they take on added significance "when it's too late, after the damage has been done." "Look at the foods they eat," says Dr. Mracek. "TeenaKers and college age young adults seldom bother with breakfast, except for a hastily gulped glass or two of whole milk which is high in animal fats. Their lunches, even between meal snacks, are often loaded with rich calories, high in choles- terol and other saturated fats, and lots of refined sugar." To youths who say they're too young to worry about what they eat, she (he) replies: "Grease-laden hamburgers and french fried, potato chips prepared in saturated fats, man teds made with whole milk -- they cause steady build-up of fatty tissue which can clog the arteries. When the openings in these tubes carrying blood to the brain and heart become blocked, stroke or heart at- tack result." According to the Alabama Heart Association President, the danger is that this potential killer lies dormant until a per- son reaches adulthood. Then the damage has been done. Then it's too late to prevent a life- threatening blockage. Avoiding foods high in sa- turated fats doesn't mean tak- ing all the fun out of life, he But the nutritionist suggests: skip the sausage and try onions, mushrooms or anchovies. Other suggested substitutes: instead of potato chips, eat fresh nuts, raisins and other dried or whole fruits; popcorn without butter; sherbets and ice milk instead of ice cream. Diet shouldnDt be the only concern of the heart-conscious youth. Exercise is important, too. According to Heart Associa- tion researchers, most over- weight teenager's diets are much the same a their slim and trim peers. "The truth is, they're often lust plain lazy/' says Dr. Mracek. "A regular exercise program helps burn up fats and keeps bodies young. Not dull exercise like calisthenics -- they are good for growing bodies, but young people quickly lose interest. Swimming, dancing, bicycle riding and long walks winter and summer are better. And organized sports help, too. Just keep active." "Also, teenagers should take a good look at their family tree. Is there a family history of heart disease, dating back several generations? At what age did parents and grandpa- rents contract heart disease? How serious was it? All these factors says Dr. Mracek can provide insight to the health problems they will face in later life, and point up the way they should be living it today. The Alabama Heast Associa- tion offers free advice on nutri- tion as one of the many pro- grams supported .by money raised through the Heart Fund campaign during February.
