There is added respon- sibility for the affairs of' others, along with more au- thority. Romantic expressions must occasionally be sub- ordinated to career but in general are more extensive and meaningful. Today's na- tives often hold progressive, sometimes avant-garde ideas. LAWRENCE: E. LAMB, M. D. Wartime Food Scarcity Helped Dieters' Health What if you already have fat- ty deposits in the arteries from "civilized" living? Often you can reverse the process if you haven't already had too much damage to your and brain. During World War II, when the Germans occupied the Low- lands and Scandinavia, food was rationed, markedly re- Sugar Linked With Heart Disease TORONTO (CP) A possible connection between heart dis- ease and consumption of sugar was noted Friday by an author- ity on the world's No. '1 killer, heart failure. After citing excessive ciga- rette smoking and bad dietary habits as among the leading causes of heart disease, Dr. W. Harding le Richa, head of the scho 1 of hygiene, University of Toronto, ..aid studies had shown that, particularly in Western countries, consumption of man- uf actured sugar had risen sharply along with f a incidence of heart disease. In tt- lart 160 years, he told a health conference, consumption of sugar in Canada had risen to ab.jt pounds per person an- nually from 10. And-the rise was much sharpei in Britain. Veteran Dancer Given Award NEW YORK (AP) Martha Graham, whose innovations dominated modern dance for a half century, has been awarded the Handel Medallion, this city's highest award for cultural achievement.

Germans held prisoner in Russia were put on a diet con- taining less than 8 per cent fat (Americans eat well over 40 per cent of their calories as Many of these prisoners were autopsied and they had no sig- nificant evidence of fatty depos- its in their arteries. Food was still scarce in Ger- many after the war and it was almost impossible to find a good case heart disease caus- ed by fatty deposits in the ar- teries to demonstrate to medi- cal students. Once the old liv- ing habits were resumed in Germany, the Lowlands and Scandinavia, the rate of athero- sclerosis soared beyond the pre-war levels. A similar decrease in artery disease was observed in Johan- nesburg, South Africa. When white prisoners were jailed anc fed the Bantu diet for a long time, evidence of heart disease disappeared. When people from races ap- parently free of the disease are absorbed by civilization, they develop atherosclerosis. Orien- tal people in the United States, eating and living as we do, have a high incidence of heart and vascular disease. In the Jewish culture, when the primitive Yemenite Jews were absorbed by Israel, or the average they gamed 20 pounds (not muscle but Of course, they developed fatty deposits in their arteries and began to have a lot more hearl attacks. What does all this mean to you? It is very simple: By ad- justing your living patterns you can do something about pre- venting fatty deposits in your arteries. If you already have deposits the adjustment could help reverse the process. You can decrease the possibility that you will have a heart at- tack, a stroke or senility. On the other hand, continued indulgence in too many calories of the wrong kind, not enough physical activity and the wrong habits can speed you to prema- ture aging, disability and even death.
