WlLSONHARDER Next to the fact that nearly everybody feels qualified to run a newspaper is the fact that most people consider themselves as experts on advertising. And now, it would appear that bu- reactors are deciding that they should also be experts in the field of medicine. $ $ , Recently theFood& Drug Admln- istratlon sles- ed several hundred cas- es of Shred- ded Wheat in Kasgs City. Obviously, the National Biscuit Corn- c W. Harder party does not qualify ms elther i a small or independent business, but regardless of this fact & principle is involved here. *** The siezure was made be- cause last May the FDA made an arbitrary ruling prohibit- ing the use of certain refer- ences to cholesterol content in the packing or promotion of food items. The breakfast food in question had on its package the information that too much cholesterol presents a problem which can be alleviated by a well balanced diet not contain- ing an excess of animal fats. , , Because this ran contrary to the FDA ruling prohibiting the use of words aud phrases such as "unpolyunsaturated," "low in eholesterol." or "ask your doctor," the FDA confiscated the merchandise. This question of chloresterol is the subject of much research and discussion in the medical profession. It is apparently proved that too much choles- terol in the blood stream will cause heart trouble.. Certain types of food fat ap- pear to provide cholesterol to the diet. Whether or not people suffering from a high eholes- terol level in the blood gained that condition because of their dietary habits, or whether it was caused by some physical condition is a question quite subject to debate. However, many doctors, and many pa- tients, have found that regard- less of how the condition was created, a low cholesterol diet is beneficial. Obviously, if many doctors and their patients subscribe to some of the beliefs concerning this matter, it is a service to them to have described on packaging the cholesterol con- tent of the products Yet, apparently with no qualms at all, and apparently because somebody in FDA dis- agrees with medical beliefs re- garding cholesterol, the bureau adopts a regulation making prohibitions as covered above. This is significant by itself, but is even more so when consid- ered as what might take place if through Medicare, or other programs, the government in- trudesin the practice of medi- cine. $ , While adependent business proprietors, voting through the National Federation of Inde- pendent Business consistently oppose raising payroll taxes for Medicare as unsound econ- omics, there is this other con- sideration. If government could get into the practice of medi- cine, eventually some bureau- crats with no more qualUica- tions than having had the right political connections to get ap- pointed, would be telling doc- tors what they can and cannot do in treating illness.

SEeR By BETSY Panelist on "i've G0t A Seer, Monday Nights, CBS-TV I'VE GOT A SECRET FOR THE HOLIDAYS: I like to give homemade candies as gifts --hostess gifts, holiday gifts, nr as a small remembrance for shut-ins. Now don't say, "But candy-making is too hard and takes too much time." Candies can be made without much muss, fuss, or bother. Here's how I do it. The most versatile candy of all starts with a package (8 squares) semi-sweet chocolate partially melted over hot water. :Remove from water and stir rapidly until entirely melted. Stir in 15fi cups of any one of the following: coarsely chopped salted pecans, salted peanuts, or raisins. I have even added 3 cups coarsely crushed peanut brittle-yummy!
