From the desk of Dr. Ramiro Narro County Medical Officer THURSDAY, JANUARY 11, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 9 There are nine risk factors which physicians and medical scientists believe make man more susceptible to a heart at- tack far too early in life: high blood pressure, high levels of cholesterol, overweight, ex- cessive eating, too little exer- cise, diabetes, cigarette smok- ing, tensions, and heredity. Of these, hypertension, or high blood pressure, has Income the major target for a nationwide campaign by the National Heart and Lung Institute, say officials of the Texas State Department of Health. The reason for this major new campaign is simple. There are now an estimated 23,000,000 Americans who suffer from hy- pertension. That amounts to at least one in every 10 persons in this country. Healthy authori- ties say only half are aware of their disease, and of those, on- ly about half are receiving treatment. And health officials say that of these, only half are receiving ...

THE ' ,f FAMILY^ LAWYER _ Fire Insurance on Cigars? Once upon a time a man tried to collect fire insurance on a box of cigars. Having smoked them all, one at a time, he argued that they had been "destroyed by fire" and were therefore covered by his policy. But the court pointed to a rule which is followed almost every- where in the field of fire insur- ance: that damage done by a "friendly" fire is not covered. A friendly fire is one that is burning where it belongs—in an oven, in a fireplace, or at the tip of a cigar. "In common parlance," a court explained, "one has not 'had a fire' so long as it has burned only in the place where it was intended to burn." This rule has generally been ap- plied not only to things burned on purpose, like the cigars, but also to things burned by mistake. Consider two examples: 1) a housekeeper threw an en- velope into the family furnace, unaware that it contained a valu- able ring; 2) a man unwittingly tossed his wife's dentures, wrapped in tissue p...

The mat- ter will come up Friday. The court was then told that they would have a complete fi- nancial report by September 15 or 20 by the County Auditor's office. We have $181,322.22 as of November, however during the month of December we have paid $48,733.13. Which leaves an outstanding balance of De- cember 1970, 1971 and 1972, $142,588.69. "Are these the bills that are due now?" Lozano asked as be held up a copy of the due bills. "Yes, that is a list and here is the stack of vouchers," He- berto Barrera, assistant coun- ty auditor said. "You have here a bill for A- mando Pena for reimbursement for parts, how is this handled?"

i - ■# < * <• CONGRESSMAN KIKA de la GARZA Reports THURSDAY, JANUARY U, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 17 WASHINGTON, D.C. — The end of the year was moving time for your congressional office in Washington. We have moved out of the Cannon Office Building, and my staff and I are now lo- cated in a newly remodeled suite of rooms in the Longworth Of- fice Building. The newest office building for offices of members of the House is the Rayburn Building, and it is generally considered the most desirable. I could have moved into, but I chose the of- fice in the Longworth Building because it provides more space for my staff. My thought is that the better their working condi- tions, the better service we can give the people of the 15th Con- gressional District. The suite includes a large room formerly used by a subcommittee, and it will provide ideal working quar- ters for staff members. And South Texans will be just as welcome at 1434 Longworth Building as they were at our former offi...

THURSDAY. JANUARY 11, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 18 ^MU"" -.22^ M from thm d«sk of Dr. Ramiro Narro County Msdkal Officer During this cold weather sea- son, many of us will suffer the consequences of a cold, flu, or respiratory Infection even though we may try to avoid or prevent it. Since the chances are good to have a bout with the "cold bug" this year, it might behoove each of us to know more about what a cold is and what to do with it when you have it, say state health officials. What Is a cold? The common cold Is a name given to any of a number of short-lived Infec- tions of the nose and throat. All of them are highly contagious. They have similar symptoms. Sometimes they are called by other names, which simply tell you what part of the upper res- piratory tract is particularly affected: rhinitis, affecting the nose; pharyngitis, the throat; or laryngitis, the voice box. What causes a cold? The Tex- as State Department of Health points out there are many dif- ferent viruse...

« •• * OF ECOLOGY SAVINGS ON TREES t ^ <yf * . WCUMWO ' VlMiM FIMI Trees play a very impor- tant part in our environment. TTiey breathe in carbon diox- ide and release oxygen in our atmosphere. Trees protect our watersheds and provide soil cover. They combat erosion, and safeguard our ground water resources. So it makes sense to pro- tect trees. By the year 2000, we will have to have a forest area that can yield a volume twice as great as that of to- day's in order to meet the needs of this country. This future forest area will have to be grown with less acreage for there will be approximately 10 million less acres of pro- ductive timberlands by the turn of the century than there is today. How will this need be met and can it be done? The answer to these questions is "yes,"with a well-managed re- forestation program of "Super- Trees." Hudson Pulp & Paper Corp., maker of Hudson Nap- kins, Towels and Tissue pro- ducts, maintains a superior tree orchard in Florida where the tree...

Inaugurating the UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE JULY 1.1971 To The Editor Dear Mr. Trejo, I, for one, resent the insinuations, allegations, and accusations you have made against Mr. Roque Guerra, We, the constituents of his precinct, voted for him because he was, and is, the most capa- ble and honest man for the job. I consider it a privilege to know him personally. During the years that I was in the band, I noticed that Mr. Guerra always had time to help his students with whatever problems we had. There was a tremendous student-teacher rela- tionship. Now that I know him on an adult basis, I respect ami ad- mire him even more. I know it's a long way from replacing broken reeds and missing screws on an instrument to his present position in a political office, but I trust him wholeheartedly to get the job done. I don't completely understand why you have chosen to start a per- sonal vendetta against Mr. Guerra. Heaven knows there are many politicians in Starr County who are crooked and ...
