Some business and industrial leaders say exercise is an ex- hilaratiiii; experience in self- discipline. Frederick li.

Dave Diehl, 2741 B avenue NE, runs two miles a day to stay in shape for football which he plays at Northeast Missouri State university. He is running on the Regis high school track. t-t. M-uiur of tin- Tyler Corp. in Dallas, en- courages running on the part of his executives in the belief that it will help them brini; more self-discipline to the job. Zenith Corp in ns executives health cluli memberships and re- quires them M work out three times a weo-k on treadmills, bicycles and rowing! machines. "We have a loi invested in these explains John Post, tiic company's medical fiirtYti.T. "There is a lot of pressure in business and we want to make sure that when one of them is on the run, he'll be able to get to the fin- ish line." The passion for vim and vigor has not engulfed even-- one, however. There are slill many who subscribe to the put down attributed to educa- tor Hubert M. 11 u t c li i u s: "Whenever 1 feel like exer- cise. 1 lie down until the feel- ing passes." (loos every physician advocate exercise as a key to health. Peter Steincrohn, a Florida cardiologist, contends that exercise is necessary only for growing children, young adults, and those re- j covering from injury or ill- j ness. "Middle-aged nerves and muscles require relaxation, not he advises. "R a i sing the pulse rate through exercise is a foolish expenditure of heartbeats." Others seem to agree. An- other skeptic, Frank P. Fos- ter of the Lahey clinic in Bos- ton, says athletics and physi- cal-fitness programs are "in danger of becoming a patri- otic enigma wrapped in tra- dition, misinformation and foggy thinking. Many people who never exercise live to a ripe old age." Even the American Medi- cal Assn. (AMA) says not ev- eryone needs exercise: An ac- tive person may require little, if any, additional exercise to maintain fitness. Nevertheless, mounting evi- dence tends to support the be- lief that physical lactivity pre- vents, or at least postpones, the onset of heart attacks, which account for deaths each year in the U. S. Much data has been gathered by comparing people who work in sedentary jobs with those in more physically ac- tive occupations. The first survey to attract wide attention compared 000 bus drivers and conductors who worked on the double- deck red buses and trolleys in London. Jeremy N. Mor- ris, a doctor, and his asso- ciates found in 1956 that heart attacks caused 30 percent few- er deaths among the conduc- loi x wnu KOI up anil tumii Stan's fares. among tile drivers, wiin sal at tile steering wheel all day. They later confirmed this tlatii in a similar study on sedentary postal clerks and uutknig mail earner.; In their most recem study of ciul servants, reported in ItC.'t. the British scientists showed that leisure- lime work promoted heari health. Tile work included Mnig in a garden, shoveling snow, sawing, cycling, and taking brisk walks of at lea.-.! iiO minutes on hilly terrain. A I'niversity of .Minnesota research team determined in that the age-adjusted mortality rale for heart dis- ease is 5.7 per 1.000 persons for sedentary railroad clerks. for moderately active switchmen, and 2.8 for the section men Mho perform more hard labor. Similar com- parisons in San Francisco showed that heart disease killed about 30 percent fewer longshoremen than office workers. .v Muth 111.toe lit t. oii.ula showed that business execu lues, lawyers, judges, and phjsicians had 5.7 times as many coronary deaths as farmers, miners and laborers. And a 1'JBT Harvard imiver- SUld) 01 pairs ,t lliid- brothers born ill Ire- land also showed that exercise was tiie imponan! fac- in holding down the in- cidence of heart disease. In each case studied, one brother immigrated to the Boston am while the oilier remained in Ireland. These who slaved in Ireland re- mained in farming while their Boston brothers became city dwellers, most of them with si'denlary jobs. The Irish tanners got more exercise, since their farms are not high- ly and niosr of them still walk or ride bicy- cles to town. .Most of ihe ROM- Ion group owned cars and rode to work on public transporta- lion.
