Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 27, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Wed.. Nov. 27, 1974 For Better Hormone Injections Are Used In Some Quick Diet Schemes It is, I must confess, a rather dubious distinction, but since distinction of any kind is rather hard to come by, I'll claim it. I have, I believe, the distinc- tion of being the only butcher Who has ever cut his finger carving a turkey on national television. It was a year ago. I had been invited to Los Angeles to demonstrate the proud and proper act of carving turkey on the Dinah Shore Show. I was fantastic. At least I was fan- tastic up to the point when Dinah said: "Merle, you're fantastic! You make it look so easy, but you go so fast I'm al- ways afraid you'll cut your- At just that point 1 did. It was just a nick and I doubt that most viewers even noticed. And I tucked the wounded thumb under a wing and con- tinued unflinchingly the I show must go on. Carving is a show, a perfor- mance, an art. Unfortunately, it has become almost a lost art. Most turkeys arc carved unceremoniously in the kitchen instead of "center stage" on the dining room table. In hopes of getting more of you "into the act" this holiday season, 1 offer the following (but take your time don't cut Lei Turkey Rest You will get off to a much better start if you let the turkey "rest" foKaboul 20 minutes after it comes from the oven before carrying it on stage. You will need, in addition lo the platter or carving board upon which the turkey makes ils grand entrance, a smaller platter or board as well as a serving platter. It is impossi- ble to play a great scene without the proper staging. You will need, of course, a carving set. It doesn't have to be a fancy one but the knife does need to be sharp. If that fancy set you got as a wedding Medal of Honor Winner Released SANTA ROSE, Calif. (UP1) A young Congressional Medal of Honor holder con- victed of dope dealing was given probation by a judge who said, "He did more for his country in one day than most people do in a lifetime." Richard Allen Penry. 24, a former army sergeant in Viet- nam, was arrested by under- cover agents in October 1973 and called one of the major cocaine dealers in the area. Penry was decorated by President Nixon in 1971 for evacuating his 26-man unit, including 18 wounded men, after an enemy attack. Carving gift doesn't have a sharp knife, just use the fancy fork, and for the knife substitute a good sharp one from the kitchen. Remember, the play's the thing. Position the turkey in front of you so that the legs are pointing to your right. Before you begin, run the the knife across the steel a few times. It probably doesn't need it, but it's a great way to begin the act, a little like a drum roll. Show Biz Always carve first that side nearest the audience. Remember, this is "show biz" and the people want to see what you're doing. 1. First, remove the drums- lick. Cut down between the (high and the .body and, with the fork, push the leg outward so you can find and sever the joint that connects the thigh to the back bone. 2. Remove the drumstick to the smaller platter and separate the leg from the thigh. Carve both into slices as uniform as possible, parallel to the bone. 3. Next, make a horizontal "base" cut deep into the breast at the point where the wing is attached. Press down on .the wing tip (o find the joint and sever the wing. Remove to Ihe smaller platter and divide into smaller portions at the joints. 4. Now comes the finale carving the breast. Before beginning, you might want to give yourself another "drum so .sharpen your already sharp knife one more time. Then, with the fork firmly planted to steady the bird, start carving the breast into thin slices, beginning about halfway up and carving down to the "base" cut made when you removed the wing. Carve Only Enough If you have your act together, the slices should fall neatly away from the bird. Arrange both light and dark meal, along wilh some of Ihe sluffing if Ihere is any, on the serving platler for passing to your guests. Carve enough for, but only enough for, a single generous serving per person. Nothing is dryer than dry turkey and it keeps much better on the car- cass. When more is needed, you'll be called on for an en- By Dr. Andclmnn The latest in the long series of quick- weight-loss schemes are so-called "fat din- ics" which are using Injections of a hormone extracted from the urine of pregnant women to help patients lose weight. The American Medical Assn. (AMA) has urged a legal crackdown on the clinics. AMA scientists have traced the history of the hormone, human chorionic gonadotrophin as a supposed reducing agent' and found it wanting. I1CG was first used for weight reduction 211 years ago in Hume, and "fal clinics" utilising the 1ICG diet regimen have proliferated throughout the United Slates in recent years. Strict Diet Fat people on Ihe HCG program do lose pounds mi the hormone, but they do so be- cause they musl follow a 500-calorie-a-day diet. In reducing clinics, daily injections of HCG arc given six limes a week for a total of 40 injections. At the same lime Ihe palienl is held to a strict 500-calorie diet. The diet is deficient in prolein, and protein malnutrition1 could result if the diet is maintained for the 42 lo HO days thai the treatment requires, researchers say. Many of these clinics are franchised op- erations. All advertise thai they are under medical supervision, and doctors have been offered huge sums of money to affiliate with them. The clinics are large-volume operations in which Ihe physician generally agrees to di- vide gross income equally with the lay opera- tors. The fee structure varies, but can amount to as much as for a treatment. Some clinics also sell prepackaged orie diets. Reservations Many medical people have strong reserva- tions about the propriety of a doctor partici- pating in these fal clinics, which often are actually run by laymen. Researchers say there's no convincing ev- idence thai HCG has any pharinacologic ef- fect in weight reduction. Advertised claims lo the public that HCG can help you lose weight are a misrepresentation of Ihe scientific facls. As in (he pasl, Ihe best way lo lose weight is lo see a doctor for a physical ex- amination and a reducing diet. It's safe and you can lose weight by slicking lo the medi- cal advice. Dr. Andelman welcomes letters outlining problems he may discuss in future columns. He regrets, however, he cannot personally answer mail. Write to him In care of The Ga- zette.
