Eureka Times Standard (Newspaper) - August 28, 1972, Eureka, California Page 8 —Monday, August 28, 1972THE TIMES-STANDARD "  —„ ■ , —. . ,    ^   <Massachusetts Program Told Eureka, California Senior Citizens’ Lunch Program: Friendship Is As Important 4s Food special federal grant to the By JEANNE LES EM UPI Food Editor NEW YORK (UPI) — Friendship is as important as food in a senior citizens’ lunch program in Massachusetts schools. Social contacts made in school lunchrooms are the real bonus, says Marion L. Cronan, who has helped supervise the program since its inception as a prepilot project in the Brookline school system in 1968. Miss Cronan is director of homemaking and school food services in the Boston suburb. Her district was one of the first selected because it had the highest percentage in the state of persons 65 years and older. The program Is funded by a State Council on Aging, and it receives donated foods from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service. As a result, senior citizens pay only 50 cents per meal. So far, no one in the Brookline program has been unable to afford this token sum. and Miss Cronan is confident that agency assistance could be found if needed. The ability to pay is an important part of the program, because it avoids the stigma of charity, but Miss Cronan said in a letter that she sees other equally important social benefits. Before the lunch program began, some elderly men and women wouldn’t even dress and leave their rooms during the day. Now they eagerly don their best clothes five days a week to meet new friends over a hot lunch at school. A similar reaction is reported from other cities that have tried the program, including Santa Fe., N. M., fCau Claire, Wis., and Avon, Conn. In Santa Fe. several friendships even led to marriage. A growing number of cities provide home delivery of meals for the elderly, but Miss Cronan feels that eating together in school lunchrooms has several advantages over the other For one thing, the aged enjoy watching the children whose lunch hour precedes theirs, and the youngsters relate well to the older group. Miss Cronan said she thinks the young people respond better to the elderly than they do to many middleaged persons, who may represent the authority of parents or teachers. The Brookline project attracts outside visitors. •“Schools of nursing send students who are studying geriatrics," she wrote. “Students in public health or nutrition often visit, and people from other communities come to see how it works." A representative from the Brookline Multiservice Senior Center is there daily to chat informally with the men and women. She refers those with medical problems to the health department or sends a visiting nurse to their homes. She has helped some find new living quarters and she arranges psychiatric and social help for those who need it. Many older persons’ eating habits are notoriously poor, but Miss Cronan said the program quickly demonstrated that some of the elderly are eager to learn about good nutrition. She added that older people generally tend to eat too much bread, cereals and sweets, and too little meat, fish, poultry, frint and vegetables. One woman told Miss Cronan that her lunch, before the school program was launched, had consisted of an English muffin and coffee at a fast food service restaurant. The cost was 40 cents — only IO cents less than she now pays for a full hot meal. The school program is con tinued during the summer session, but five meals a week during the school year isn’t adequate. in Miss Cronan’s view, and she hopes the Older Americans Act of Congress soon will make possible delivery of meals to the house bound and those on special diets. She’d also like to see it expand to include breakfast and or supper. “Schools should be open to serve the community — not just for children — for also adults at all hours,’’ she wrote. “We have an obligation to care for those who need our service, to provide adequate nutrition in attractive surroundings, seasoned to give pleasure to the palate and warmth and joy to the heart." stem. _ Accent    on People MURIEL DINSMORE, EDITOR Anti LandersYou’ve Told A Story That Only A Person Who Has Lived Through It Can Tell DEAR ANN LANDERS:    I just read that letter in your column from the guy who fell through a skylight while trip ping. My story is similar, except I started with pills. From pills I went to smoking dope. This lasted for about six months. Then I decided to drop acid for a bigger belt. My first trip was a brute. It was everything I d ever heard it would be. I could hardly wait to try it again. That second trip was the granddaddy of all bum mors. Man was I spaced out! I begged my pals to take me to a hospital but they said I’d get asked a lot of questions and everybody would be in trouble. I went into a rage, crying and screaming arid bn aking up furniture. One sweet kid approached me to straighten my head out. I hit her full in the mouth. That convinced them to call my parents. I just couldn't face mom and pop. So I tried lo kill myself by slashing my throat with a broken bottle. Crazy? You’d better believe it. I was on acid, librium, aspirin, antibiotics, pot and booze. My folks went through hell on account of me. I was really rotten to them They took me to a private place for teenage .junkies and it cost them their life's savings. But they were really wonderful. All this happened eight months ago and today I feel like a new person. I know now I was screwed up and stupid. I wouldn’t go near a joint or a pill, let alone a sugar cube, for anything in the world. I am one of those people who shouldn't mess around with anything thai will change the chemistry of my body. Even a glass of beer is off limits for me. God gave me a second chance that some heads don't get. I’m going to spend the rest of my life helping kids who are goofed up on drugs and prove to God that I was worth saving. Please print my letter so others who are in a bad way will know that they can make it back. If I did, anybody can. — Garden City Joe. DEAR JOE: Welcome home. Yoe’ve told a story that only a person who has lived through it could tell. Thank you for writing. DEAR ANN LANDERS:    I would appreciate the opportunity to reply to the Texas M. D. who made the statement that "scientific evidence actually favors no bra.” As a gynecologist I have seen and read of many cases of women who never wore bras. Do you know what they look like? Their breasts are flat. Very flat. The Cooper's ligament, unassisted, is not able to support the weight of the average breast. This con dition is called "Cooper's Droop." Ann, please tell your women readers that going without a bra may give them a feeling of liberation but it will result in sagging breasts. Almost everyone has seen films of tribal African women which are conclusive evidence. The females have never worn bras and they all have Cooper’s Droop. I hope you will print my letter so your readers will know that the El Paso physician does not have the support of all members of the medical pro fession. I am a — New York M.D. DEAR DOC:    You have demonstrated the wisdom of obtaining a second opinion. Your word of warning may well have rescued a whole generation of potential Super Duper-Cooper-Droopers. Do you feel awkward, selfconscious — lonely? Welcome to the club.

We send out postal cards, reminding people of their unclaimed orders. Wo keep them for six months and then we pull them off the racks. That is as much as we can do. Then we give them away. As you can see, nobody gets a lot of good clothes for nothing, except some charity organiza tion, as we sure can’t use them, and we don’t sell them. Cleaner’s Wife In this day and age, with so many things happening so quickly and unexpected'y, it would really be wonderful if people would take the time to jot down this necessary information. That reminder would really prevent the loss of many personal articles in many places that don’t want them.

When I get ready to make the cake for the party, I make sure I have flat bottomed ice cream cones on hand. I fill each cone half-full with the batter. Then each cone is set in a section of a muffin tin, to be baked. After they are baked, these little cup cakes can be decorated any way you like. For a birthday. I stick one of those ama I candles in the cake and each child can blow out his own candle. This makes a nice way to serve the cakes as the child can cat the cone and all. Mrs. Bieber DEAR DELOISE: I want to tell you how much I enjoy and use your helpful hin.s. There are very few that I cannot use. Though a grandmother, I even use the ones for young mothers. These I also pass along to my children. Now, for that second cup of tea and the newspaper with today’s hints and my visit with you! Wilma Maxwell DE\R DELOISE: My kitchen floor is a brick pattern vinyl — and every little spot really shows. I purchased one of those sma'l squeegees with the sponge on one side, that are sold mostly for washing car w indows. I keep it under the kitchen sink. The handle is not long enough to create a problem in a small storage space. It also eliminates stooping to wipe up spills and spots, and muddy little paw tracks. This squeegee has proved to be one of my best housekeeping aids. It is worth its weight in gold for those quick floor cleanup jobs DO TRY IT.
