PAGE 8 At A Glance By Liz Bates Mrs. Woodham and I enjoyed a news article in a Pensacola newspaper recently, and I thought I might share it with my readers. It involved Pat Paulsen, sometimes candidate for President of the United States. Most of you will remember when Paulsen ran for Presi- dent in 1966 and again in 1972. The whole thing began as a joke on the Smothers Brothers television show. But Paulsen admits the whole thing got out of hand then. "I ran too hard," he said, "it ended up that instead of me putting the American people on, the American people were put- ting me on." Paulsen also had some very interesting remarks about Carter and Ford in the inter- view made in Vancouver, Bri- tish Columbia. "We have a choice," he said, "between two very energetic, forceful, ~=~ Philip C.

How about Ford and Car- ter? "Jimmy Carter," Paulsen said, "is a man who grew from humble beginnings to become one of Georgia's leading pea- nut farmers. Just what we need, another nut in the White House." "Carter wants to clamp down on the CIA and the FBI. Idon't know why," he said. "The closest they've come to taking over a government is ours. They said Carter doesn't know anything about foreign affairs. I say at least he's lusted after them in his heart." What about Ford? "I think Ford," Paulsen said, "is dynamic, speaks clearly on the issues, and is not afraid to take a stand. Of course, I'm talking about Betty. I don't blame President Ford for our troubles. He hasn't done anything. They say he is bland. I think that's a little harsh. But if there is such a thing as reincarnation, he'll come back as yogurt." So much for Paulsen. Now to some other things in the news. In Detroit there is a man who likes to steal clean li- nen, delivery truck and all. Police there report that on two occasions someone has taken a delivery truck, emp- tied it of all the clean li- nens, sheets, towels and ta- blecloths, and later left it. The police have no clues, but do suspect the same man in both cases. But if you think that is bad, in Tucson, Arizona, there is a cat that is biting dogs. The cat has killed over 40 dogs in the last 14 months. But even government wild animal trap- However, to prove she isd't perfect, she thought the sixth day of June of this year was Friday. It was Sunday. In case any of you missed both my column and Mrs. Woodham's "News of Interest" last week and were wondering if we were on strike, we weren't. Technical difficulties slow- ed down operations around here last week. At approximately 12 midnight on Tuesday, we finished making up the Florala News for last week. The whole week was really one of those nightmares that you don't like to think about. I started it all on Monday at 8 a.m. when I came to the office to pick up a camera, and I got Mrs. Woodham's ca- mera. Normally that would have been fine, but this time the camera was loaded with color film that she had taken of a family wedding. Luckily, she came to work early enough to discover my mistake and to rush to Lockhart and re-take the new council's picture in black and white for the news- paper, before all the members left. Then she had to come to Florala and deliver the ca- mera with black and white film to me at the city hall for me to take new Florala City Council pictures. When a week begins like that, you know things are go- ing to have to get worse. They did, but luckily, we did man- age to get the newspaper out. Boy Scout per Jim Lackey can't find sign of the big cat. Some people think it is mountain lion, but Lackey said he could find no sign to verify that. Maybe, it's just a fat cat. Finally, in India there is a woman who has dazzled both men and computers, not with her looks either. She can ex- tract roots from huge num- bers, such as 52 is the cube root of 140,606. Her parents in India began to notice her power when she was only three. Shakuntula Devi recently beat both stu- dents and a computer in Wash- ington in a contest in finding the cube roots of large num- bers. Everyone was amazed. She could even tell the day of the week for as far back as November 3, 1949. It was Thursday. a News The Alabama-Florida Coun- cil, Boy Scouts of America an- nual Cub Scout Leaders' Pew Wow will be held Saturday, Oc- tober 16 at 9:00 - 3:00 at Mi- xon Elementary School in Oz- ark, Alabama.

It was also discussed that it would be necessary to place Mrs. Ro- berts under bond. Ted Cov- ington made the motion to place the clerk under bond for $2,000.00, since this was the practice for past clerks and would be sufficient now. Tho- masson seconded, all ap- proved. The subject of the Town Recorder was discussed. As of the first of the year a Town Recorder is no longer legal in a municipality. It is required that an attorney be present at municipal courts.

Church Of Christ To Sponsor Series Of Cts ,r The mother of two writes: "I bit the inside of my cheek a few months ago, and the area still seems to me to be discolored even though it doesn't hurt. Is that cause for concern?" ANSWERIine: Please have your physician or your dentist answer that question. White, red, or darkened patches of the inner cheek might be sym- ptomatic of oral cancer, and for that reason, you need an expert to make a diagnosis. While a "bite" has nothing to do with cancer, your "bite" might have helped call your attention to another condition. The American Cancer Society is stressing the importance of regular mouth self- examination to help bring about earlier diagnosis of cancer when it is most easily treated. Your local ACS Unit has a new pamphlet on this subject which is available free of charge. It's called, "Word of Mouth." A businessman writes: "Ten years ago, I was treated for colon-rectal cancer by sur- gery, and I am in fine health. Lately I've been noticing that they are using a lot more drugs in cancer treatment and in fact, a friend told me that there is a new drug treatment for colon- rectal cancer. Is this true?" ANSWERIIne: Drug treat- ment, usually in combination with other forms of therapy such as surgery or radiation, is very much part of the medi- cal approach to cancer in the 1970's. Where once drugs were given when cancer had become advanced throughout the body, there is now a trend towards beginning chemothe- rapy earlier in the course of the disease to either control or prevent such spread. Med- ical science also is learning when to give drugs for maxi- mum benefit to the patient. The treatment to which you refer is based not on the discovery of a new drug, but a new way to administer fluorouracil, a drug long used in cancer treat- ment. In studies done at the Nassau Hospital in Mineola, New York, it was found to be highly effective to give this drug for a short period of time four to six weeks after sur- gery for colon-rectal cancer. Until this newly-reported work, drugs given either dur- ing surgery or immediately following it had questionable benefit. Please note, how- ever, that surgery remains the primary means of treating co- lon-rectal cancer. A furniture salesman asks: "Why don't health insurance companies pay for physical checkups?" /I~NSWERIine: The cost of providing such a service has been one main reason why checkups are not usually cov- ered by prepaid health plans. However, the Blue Cross As- sociation, which has nearly 90 million subscribers has just announced a major study in cooperation with the National Cancer Institute, which will attempt to find the most ef- ficient screening method to provide diagnostic service as part of a prepaid health plan for large population groups. The study, which will take se- veral years, will seek to ans- wer many questions including financial ones such as: will it cost less to provide this kind of benefit and administer the program than to pay the high cost of treating cancer?
