MATTHEWS fily Editor FRIDAY DECEMBER 301977 Vol 113 No 168 Good Morning Unto you is born this day In tbe city of David a Saviour which is Christ the Lord Luke A Mere Eight Miles Looking at the matter in a sensible and prudent light ane must ask How could anyone seriously contemplate swimming around the Cape of Good Over the centuries this treacherous stretch er at the tip of South Africa has daunted brave captain and brought not a few ships Who in his right mind would dream of empting it with the crawl stroke 4 marathon swimmer thats who and one ently in her not his right mind Lynne Cox Alamitos Calif made the attempt the other ay and became the first human being to navigate je distance solo Its only eight miles of course a mere fraction a the English Channels span But there are sharks The accompanying boat carried a couple of professional skin divers to deal with that problem and Miss Coxs coach John Sonnichsen reported shooting two blues that came too close And there were 15foot breakers to get through on the way out and winds gusting at 25 to 50 miles per hour and big waves Fifty footers according to a news dispatch Yet this 20yearold California ploughed sturdily along and made it from MacLears Point on the Atlantic side to False Bay in the Indian Ocean in three hours and three minutes To what purpose Who can say Maybe the Cape of Good Hope is to swimmers what Mt Everest is to climbers Its there f South African swimmers also tried it One was hauled aboard the boat when he was unable to keep up with the redoubtable Miss Cox the other didnt even get past the breakers pounding the shore All of which tells us something about the endurance and tenacity of what used to be called the weaker sex A Good Days Pay Ordinary wage slaves ordinary tycoons even with their stock options and all may find it discombobulating to learn that Johnny Carsons new contract will pay him more than million a year Their minds may be further boggled by the tidings that for this munificent sum he will be required to put in only 25 weeks of toil and a three day week at that Theres no use being glum about it certainly no use fulminating on the theme of disproportionate rewards Our society pays top entertainers far more than it pays senators professors plumbers Supreme Court judges or even presidents Carson will pull down a fortune a year because he pulls em in for The Message As that fellow on the news says thats the way it is Welcome Slowdown The news that gasoline consumption ap parently has begun to level off warrants a judicious cheer Any indication of a trend that will help to make petroleum reserves last longer is welcome The cheering must be a trifle subdued as yet however Much depends on whether the slowdown in consumption heralds a longterm decline It also is important to know what is bringing this about Specualation revolves around two basic theses One is that Americans are beginning to drive less in reaction to the high cost of gasoline The other is that more fuelefficient cars get the credit It is a fair guess that the two things are working in combination As mileage ratings improve less fuel will be consumed unless there is an unexpected rise in auto use At the same time there is un doubtedly something in what Dan Lundberg the publisher of a weekly compilation of gasoline statistics said in commenting on the levelingoff I believe gasoline prices are getting into the area where high prices are discouraging use But whatever the cause or causes a waning rate of gasoline consumption is a good sign for the future SUBSCRIPTION BY

CambridgeSomer ville Youth Study con ducted in Massachusetts some 30 years ago was designed to see just how valuable psychological counseling would be to so called difficult children The youngsters were from 5 to 13 and there were 500 of them Half received onetoone psychotherapy with a personal counselor for five years The other half received no therapy of any kind One of the goats of the study was to see if this kind of help would influence the children to become useful citizens when they were adults Naturally the counsel ing was an effort to steer the difficult kids away from a life of crime Today we have the re sults of this 30year test Some 80 percent of those original youngsters have been located and their cur rent lifestyles studied The results are not only interesting theyre sur prising In almost every case the therapy had a negative effect More crimes were committed by men who had been receiving psy chotherapy than those who did not More antisocial and criminal behavior re sulted in those children who had received the most counseling The ones with out therapy evidently were better able to help them selves adjust to adult life Joan McCord of Drexe University who conducted the current study says Its possible that people became too dependent on counselors they came to see themselves as needing help The children without professional help helped themselves and received greater strength from their own personal strug gles THE CONSCIENCE FUND Have you ever cheated your government If the answer is yes and you want to quiet your LAFF A DAY l What wine goes well

at Home My problem is Im always tired My mother te sure that Im anemic She loads me up with medicine to thicken my blood I cant convince her that its because I work too hard at the office Every new product that strikes her fancy she tries oat oo me Im 19 Miss JCO NJ Dear Miss 0 Your mother is not alone in her homemade diagnosis of anemia It seems that thousands of peopte phrase I must be anemic when in reality they are overworked fatigued and bored The populace has been bombarded with the idea of thin blood Theyve been captivated by it and now are induced to buy one or more of the many bloodthickening substances they read about or hear about Many who consider them selves anemic buy the tired blood and double iron compounds and the blood tonics all of which attract millions of dollars yearly from the gullible public This does not mean of course that there are not many ex cellent products which are effective when they are specifically prescribed by a doctor after the true diagnosis of anemia has been made Anemia is a very definite condition of the blood in which there is some kind of deficiency of the red blood cells and the hemoglobin There are dozens of different kinds of anemia each demanding highly com plex microscopic study of the blood Anemia is not a diagnosis that can be made in the kitchen It is true that fatigue can be associated with some types of anemia yet there are many other causes of fatigue which can exist without any evidence of anemia Thyroid imbalance lowgrade infections inade quate sleep a hitandmiss diet overuse of tobacco and alcohol are but a few of the possible causes You must agree that such constant fatigue at your age is unusual You must agree too that it may be time for that yearly checkup which un doubtedly will include blood studies to confirm or deny your mothers diagnosis The doctor says Quit my father has b this the same as emphysema He is a heavy smoker Mrs DP Va Dear Mrs P The two conditions are not identical but very often they exist at the same time Lungs that have been weakened by years of smoking sometimes develop infection of the smaller bronchial branches of the lung This is called bronchiectasis Tobacco is a culprit in producing emphysema and can be responsible for chronic bronchitis and longstanding cough These factors and some cases of untreated asthma can be the cause of bronchiectasis Exposure to fumes from fac tories and other pollutants can be the initial cause for weakening the lung structure If your father continues to smoke he is indeed a foolish man LAUGH TIME

entitled ex clusively to the use for republic ation of all the local news printed in this newspaper as well as all AP news dispatches Second Class Postage Paid at Titusville Fa WASHINGTON When George Kennan speaks people listen They should He is the senior retired ambassador in the American diplomatic service who has devoted most of his adult life to studying Soviet affairs Perhaps there is no such animal as a Soviet expert but he comes nearest to it He is neither a hardliner nor a softliner and his latest pronouncements prove it He has the honor of being the only U S ambassador to Moscow barred by the Kremlin from returning to his post He knew too much Mr Kennans position in the political center of the Kremlinologists is best illustrated by these two facts At the end of World War II the Soviet Union was militarily dominant and under the aggressive domination of Stalin Western Europe was weak dazed and shaken Then George Kennan took the initiative to plead for a U S policy of resistance to Soviet ex pansionism primarily through aid to our wartime Allies in Europe He addressed himself to the wishful thinking of the political left whom he described as naive and overtrustinfc people who thought it possible for this country to ingratiate itself by various onesided measures of generosity We were alerted and woke up Now Ambassador Kennan pleads that we wake up to the possibilities of a balanced and useful middle course in our relationship with Russia to our mutual advantage Now 30 years after his famous article signed X in Foreign Affairs magazine he warns that over preoccupation with the problem of US Soviet military rivalry on the part of conservative hardliners is endangering any kind of constructive negotiation with the Soviets This he sees as the current counterpart of the liberal soft liners in the mid40s His theme today is that too many Americans are overlooking what he considers the significant and far reaching changes which have taken place in the USSR during the past 30 years changes such as these 1 Stalin is dead and while the regime is still authoritarian Stalins reign of terror has vanished The Soviet leadership is conserva tive and cautious and Leonid Brezhnev he deems a man of peace 3 Moscow has lost control of the Communist parties in key areas of the world and they can no longer be used as ready and obedient instruments of Soviet purposes 4 Western Europe is strong and alert Mr Kennans central concern is that the science of longrange missile destruction has gotten seriously out of hand so out of hand he contends that r it is impossible to make effective efforts m even to begin to resolve differences He fears that even sonable agreements if negotiable will i be blocked by the present state of mind of the military hardliners Obviously many sincerely people remain suspicious that in all the ii SALT talks the Soviets are intent on achieving military superiority I can think of only one way to dispel ri that suspicion namely for the US to ru continue to get a SALT H which marks a mutual reduction of i nuclear weaponry not just a few ceilings which permit the constantaid expansion into new weapons which keep on expanding the arms race In my view and hi Kennans it is impossible to dispel mutual USSoviet suspicions by argument only by agree ment on the one issue which most produces those suspicions World of Holidays SPRINGFIELD Mass AP In Nicaragua they have the Day of National Dignity in Taiwan the Festival of the Sweeping Tombs in Tanzania Saba Saba Day falls on July 7 and in Japan Sept 15 is Re spect for the Aged Day There are few days in the when there is no holiday somewhere in the world says Anne Soukhanov associate edi tor of Websters Secretarial Handbook which contains a comprehensive Worldwide Holi day Chart Though most Americans have probably never heard of the majority of the holidays other countries take their special days just as seriously as the United States does says Ms Soukhanov who points out that its no fun to land in a place that has just dosed down for 24 hours Because many holidays based on the lunar calendar have variable dates from year to year you should check with foreign embassies or consulates in the US about exact dates if youre planning to travel in countries youre not too famil iar with cautions Ms Soukha nov For example countries in which the Muslim religion is predominant such as Saudi ArabiaEgypt and Indonesiaob serve Muhammadan religious holidays that are based on the lunar calendar In these coun tries banks and other offices are usually closed on Fridays but are open on Saturdays and Sundays Many Asian countries base their holidays on the Bud dhist or other Eastern religious calendars Will you be in Mauritania on November

hundred civil and religious holidays are cele brated each year in countries throughout the world many of which are on different dates and at different times The only holiday that is almost univer sally celebrated is Christmas Day which is both a religious and civil holiday Ms Soukha nov notes In addition to Christmas the Worldwide Holidays Chart shows two other holidays at trading almost universal inter est Independence Day and La bor Day The chart lists 84 countries with an Independ ence Day for instance In Equatorial Guinea its Oct 12 in Qatar its Sept 4 In Icelutd June 17 and in Western Samoa Jan 1 As for our own date of July 4 nobody relseseems to like it as an inde 1 periflence Soukhanov reports but in the Philippines its PhilippineAmerican Friendship Day and in Yugoslavia its Fighters Day According to the handbook some 82 countries mark Labor Day but mostly on May 1 If you plan to hit Togo Burundi Jordan Somalia Singapore or the Peoples Republic of China on May 1 dont be surprised if all offices and businesses are closed Another popular holiday is All Saints Day marked in 43 countries from Andorra to Venezuela on Nov 1 And the birthdays of kings and queens are still big news in some coun tries For example birthdays of queens are celebrated in Be lize Hong Kong New Zealand Thailand and the Netherlands Kings birthdays are marked in Nepal Lesotho and Swaziland of Your Mind by JOHN COHWELL Does of humor aid pwrtats Mothers and fathers who dont take themselves too seriously and can laugh later at some of the predicaments they can get into with their children do seem to do a good job of raising their youngsters and also helping themselves grow in the process Of course humor has its place there are countless no laughing matters between parent and child Children should not be laughed at of course nor should parents laugh off their childrens difficulties boys andgirls may learn to go elsewhere when they want attention and guidance rather than a standup comics routine Flint or paper shooM Bcrva deddcT When it comes to decorating a room selection causes as much nervous tension as execution First question doityourself or have it done If you decide to do it then comes question No 2 paint or wallpaper Painting is the easier choice on the nerves If it is botched up then paper can go over it hardly vice versa If papering is the first choice and all goes well then the whole nervewracking process can be held off for a year or two longer than it would be for a paint job Are retirees glad to take It euy Those first couple of weeks away from the pressures of a job or a careerwhat a pleasure No pressure no routine But well adjusted retired people recognize that they must guard against stagnation One woman for example said After I retired I found myself taking all day to do the very things that I used to do when I came home from work and I even felt more tired than when 1 held a regular job The woman then worked out a schedule in which
