BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Conducted by - -- - SALLY OREMLAND GOItl: :YRONG--The sign on his bicycle is almost a complete biography of C(m: a". Dube, 31, shown in Chicago on his way home m Quebec, Ca:'~ after another marathon cycling trip. A former polio patient, Dabe has pedalled his way through much of the world for a grand total of 155,000 miles, and is still going. smorc The Bismarck Hospital is ac- quiring new facilities for diag- nosis and evaluation of heart dis- ease, through a $73,000 grant from the John A. Hartford Foun- dation of New York. The announcement was made jointly by Foundation president Ralph W. Burger and Herman J. Bischof, hospital president. The grant is designated for special equipment costing $55,000 and for support of technical per- sonnel during a three-year per- iod, In his announcement, Bischof said the new facilities made pos- sible by the Hartford Founda- tion will bring to the people of North and South Dakota and eastern Montana unparalleled methods of diagnosing heart di- sease, and that it no longer will be necessary for persons in the three-state area to travel to Minneapolis or Rochester for this service. Potential~ correctible heart conditions, he said. often remain- ed undiagnosed because the pat- ients with questionable heart conditions are not referred to these distant medical centers due to the expense and inconveni- ence of making the long trip, and due to long delays in ap- pointments and the uncertainty of prompt admittance on arri- val. Donald E. Hansen. hospital ad- ministrator, stated that the pro- gram wiU add to the hospital's present armamentarium for the study and diagnosis of disease, an X-ray cine-fluoroscopic unit, a rapid film changer, an image intensifier and movie camera, and other apparatus. Cine - fluoroscopy provides a bright a~nd clear image of def- recta and abnormalities of the body's internal organs. These pictures will reveal defects that m~ght otherwise remain unknown and will allow the doctors to diagnose more accurately the area of trouble and the extent of the malfunction. Because fluoroscopic images can be recorded en motion pic- ture films, doctors may simultan- eously and repeatedly study and observe the action and condi- tion of organs. This is especial- ly valuable in diagnosing cer- tain heart defects such as im- proper functioning of the valves or the abnormal connections be- tween the right and left heart, etc. The feature which makes ~afe the use of the new equip- ment is its ability to amplify nit brightness many times. As a result weak doses of X-ray can be used to produce adequate images at the same time minim- izing the hazard of radiation. A comparatively new proced- ure, cardiac catheterization, al- lows the doctor to learn more about the inside workings of the heart. The cine-fluoroscopic equipment immeasurably steps up the efficiency and ease with which the whole cardiac cathe- terization procedure can be car- ried out. Cine - fluoroscopy also opens a wide field of study by allow- ing the doctors to see condi- tions that before was not poss- ible. For example: The exact pro- gressive reaction of a drug on the heart or other organs of the body may be observed over a period of time, the action of the inner tubules of the kidney may be seen. gastrointestinal disease may 'be studied and many physi- ologic functions can be record- ed. The Hartford Foundation was originally established by John A. Hartford to distribute his per- sonal charitable donations. He left it the bulk of his estate; and his brother, George L. Hart- ford. who died in 1957, left his entire estate to the Founda- tion. John A. Hartford was presi- dent of the Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company and George L. Hartford was chairman of the board. The Foundation Direc- tory, published by the Founda- tion Library Center, records the foundation as the fourth largest in the country and that its in- come is used primarily for sup- port of medical research. Grants from income during the year 1959 amounted to more than $9 mil- lion. CHECK } t I CHEESE BREAD? ~Miss K. B Bismarck) I would be very much inter- ested in finding a recipe for cheese bread. Perhaps one of the contributors to this section might have one to send in. Thank you. CROUTONS (Mrs. M. S Bismarck) For the reader who asked about croutons, cut your bread into cubes, after spreading with garlic butter or rubbing well with cut garlic, and toast d~'y on pan m very slow oven. Many people just use ordinary toast spread with garlic butter and cubed, in Caeser salad. AUTOMATIC WASHER C Mrs. E. A Bismarck) For six years we've had an automatic washer and as a moth- er of three, one a baby still in diapers, l can't imagine how a family with children does with- out one. Everything that we use is done at home, including sheets, towels, shag rugs, linens, diap- ers and all washable clothes in- cluding my husband's work pants. Also. I've dyed many items successfully with my sturdy automatic doing all the work. I buy as many of the heavy outer clothing in "miracle" fabrics as our budget allows, so that they can be done along with the fam- ily laundry and avoid cleaning bills. My husband's dress shirts are sent to a commercial laun- dry as they are difficult and time consuming to iron at home. The time spent in doing the family laundry at home is neg- ligible when you consider the saving of money and good re- sults. It's about a half hour each day. After all, the washer does the work, you just hang out the clothes! CENTERPIECE? (Mrs. G. K Mandan) Some years ago I read some- where instructions on how to make a bubbling centerpiece us- ing moth balls, citric acid and an- other ingredient I cannot re- member. I have mislaid these instructions and wondered if any of the readers would have such instructions. CLEAN GLASSWARE (Mrs. C. P Bismarck) For Mrs. J. W Mandan, place your glassware in a vinegar solution and let soak for an hour or two and you will find that the hard water deposits are removed. No need to boil. FOAM RUBBER PILLOWS? (Mrs. D. F Bismarck) Sometime ago someone wrote in to the Trading Post asking about instructions on washing foam rubber bed pillows, rye been watching for an answer but haven't seen one. I would cer- tainly appreciate it if someone could send in directions. (Readers' Trading Post oper- ates as a public service exchange of ideas between readers. It is conducted entirely through the mail. Questions and answers may be addressed to: Readers' Trad- ing Post, Conrad Publishing Co Box 90 Bismarck.)

SloredWheai Highesi on Record in ND A record amount of wheat in on-and-off-the-farm storage was reported in North Dakota as of Oct. 1 by the State-Federal Crop Reporting Service. Wheat stocks in all North Da- kota storages on that date totaled 183,379,000 bushels. That put North Dakota fourth in the nation, behind Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma, in wheat holdings on Oct. 1. Current off-farm storages were estimated at 76,670,000 bushels, while farm holdings were placed at I06,709,000 bushels. The hold- ings are seven per cent higher than the previous record, in Oc- tober of 1958. Rye stocks in all positions in North Dakota on Oct. 1 totaled 4,938,000 bushels, about 20 per cent more than ohe year earlier and 12 per cent over the 10-year average holdings. North Dakota accounted for over 14 per cent of of the nation's rye stocks on that date. South Dakota and Minnesota Stocks of old crop corn, barley, and oats totaled 184,026,000 bush- els, or 16 per cent more than on the same date a year ago. The North Dakota stocks accounted for over 22 per cent of the na- tion's barley holdings. Stocks of flaxseed in the state on Oct. 1 were estimated at 12,- 103,000 bushels, up 39 per cent from a year earlier but still 27 per cent below average. Stocks of old crop soybeans at 92,000 bushels were the smallest for the date since 1956. ~]" OLD ]~EESSIE -- THE COW CAN ENJOY OLD AGE-- Not many North Dakota den- tists are expected to make a beeline for the feed lots and pastures of the state, but a new market may have opened up for them in case business gets too boring. Cows can now be fit- ted with man-made choppers! Dr. Nelson Cruz Arias, Call, Columbia, has fitted several old Bessies with new dentures and claims the results are beyond his fond expectations. The South American doctor says that cows fitted with the new falsies gained several pounds and showed a marked increase in milk production. Ever hear of a cow wonder- ing" where the yellow went" or both topped North Dakota in rye having a bad ease of "pink stored on OCt. 1, however, toothbrush"? Rep. Bowles Senator Fulbrlght David Bruce THE KENNEDY ADMINISTRATION'S secretary of state might be one of these three. Chester Bowles was a Kennedy ad- viser in the campaign. He is retiring from Congress. Sen. J. William Fulbright is Senate foreign relations chairman. Bruce is a former ambassador.
