Clearfield Progress (Newspaper) - February 21, 1966, Clearfield, Pennsylvania PROGRESS, Clearfield, Curwcnsville, Philipsburg, Moshannon Valley, Pa., Monday, February 21, 1966 PAGE FIFTEEN Down horn 7964 Record... Over Quarter Million People Visited Black Moshannon State Park in 65 PHILIPSBURG - More than 250,000 persons used the facilities of Black Moshannon State Park last year, Park Superintendent Ray W. Martz announced today. Although park usage was high last year, it was 46,727 less than the record number of persons using the park in 1964. Swimming was particularly down last year, from 172,777 to 83,581. Total park attendance in 1963 was 258,714,' barely above the 1965 figure. Day use of {he park during 1965 included 77,150 picnickers, 83,581 swimmers, 12,610 fishermen, 3,656 hunters, 12,795 boaters, 1,045 persons engaged in bird watching and nature study, 7,451 persons engaged in skiing, iceskating and winter sports, a 22,375 transit visitors. Included in the day visitors and the overnight campers were residents from nearly every one of the 50 states as well as several other countries. There were 36,233 overnight stays representing 27,926 campers in the park's two tent and trailer areas. The 80 sites for tents and trailers were in constant use throughout the season with many would-be campers being referred to other parks. The park's 13 cabins, six one-room units and seven two-room cabins, were booked solid from early in the summer until late fall. Reservations are n'ow being accepted 'for the coming season, Mr. Martz stated. The smallest group of campers were in the primitive camping area which is set aside for group tenting. There were 830 overnight stays. The overnight camping marked an increase of 3,804 overnight stays from the previous year and totalled 7,015. Winter sports have been slow darting again this year at the park, Mr. Martz stated. There have been several weeks of good skiing but ice skating conditions have not been good. He said that Department of Forests and Waters employes are currently engaged in expansion of the picnic area by thinning out trees. During the past year, the camping area was expanded from 56 to the present 80 tenting and trailer sites. A new road was constructed up the valley past the concession stand to the tent and trailer area to open up a new picnic and parking site. Mr. Martz stated that the park, largely because of the new ski slope, was reclassified by the state last fall. Of all 72 state parks, Black Moshannon has more of a variety of facilities than any other in the state. The 2,150-acre park has a lake covering 250 acres and seven miles of shoreline within state forest lands. Hundreds of privately-owned boats, canoes and sailboats are used on the lake. The state formerly owned and rented row-boats but these rights are now leased. ( New boat motoring areas have been constructed and new hiking and nature trails developed. The park is the only one in the state that has a trap shooting area, leased to and operated by the Philipsburg Rod and Gun Club. There are three electrically operated traps. The lake is used for fishing. Hunting is also allowed in the park area. Some privately-owned cottages and camps line one side of the lake. Study Gauges Psychological Variables in Heart Disease UNIVERSITY PARK - Cardiac patients differ in their responses to fear of failure. Hypertensives set unattainable goals, while arteriosclerotics are more likely to select ones easily achieved. The arteriosclerotic thus avoids personal feelings of failure. He arranges for success by keeping his level of aspiration low, according to a study by Richard M. Lundy and Desmond D. O'Connell, reprinted in a new book, "Theories of Personality." Hypertensives, by contrast, arrange for failure and less often reach their goals, Lundy points out."He is a professor of psychology at The Pennsyl-' vania State University. O'Connell is on the staff of the Veterans Administration Hospital in Wood, Wis. Their study is the first to use level of aspiration tests to gauge the psychological variables in heart disease. Previous research has revealed differing levels of aspiration among asthmatic and non-asth- Om otfJcu mill U CLOSED Tuesday, February 22 WASHINGTON'S BIRTHDAY "BUT I'll BE ON THE JOB THE FUU.24 HOURS" PENNSYLVANIA ELECTRIC COMPANY matic children, and between ulcer and colitis patients. In each case, the former had significantly higher goals. Lundy and O'Connell tested 24 hypertensive cardiac patients - men suffering with increased blood pressure - and 23 non-hypertensive, arterioscler otic males. Arteriosclerosis is characterized by hardening of the arteries. The subjects were given standard psychological tests measuring co-ordination. After each attempt, they were asked to predict the degree of success which they anticipated on their next turn. Hypertensive,individuals were far more inclined to set criteria they could not meet. The test results have led Lundy to speculate about a possible relationship between hypertension and continual, self-chosen failure. It is possible, he hypothesizes, that the withdrawal of blood from the arteriolar bed, which results in increased blood pressure, is an avoidance reaction to 'the repeated and continual experiences of failure which the hypertensive arranges for himself. Specific failure, then, rather than the general stresses of life, becomes the triggering mechanism. Opposition to Federal Medicare Program Said To Be Lessening NEW YORK (AP)-OpiPosition to the Federal Medicare pro gram appears to be lessening says Dr. James Z. Appel, pres ident of the American Medical Association. Appel, a general practitioner from Lancaster, Pa., told the House of Delegates of the New York State Medical Society on Wednesday that some sipotty opposition is still being found, in the southwest for example, but that "a lot of doctors are beginning to realize that they have a job that must be done." Appel also said that President Johnson has asked the AMA to provide a committee of three or four doctors to evaluate civilian medical services in Viet Nam. The AMA has Agreed to supply the President with such a committee, which will visit and evaluate medical facilities in South Viet Nam and make recommendations when it returns.
