8 SPIRITOF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, AUGUST 31, 1978 li?00 , ,, Byrd s.Eye Vtew Realism and Railroads A quick glance at any map of the United States reveals the impact of rail- roads on the settlement of our country. As tracks were laid across America, huge areas opened up to farming and ranching; towns sprang up, and cities developed where rail lines met. Our founding fathers real- ized that improved trans- portation was a prereq- uisite for the success of the American experiment in democracy. George Wash- ington, concerned about uniting the far-flung sec- tions of the continent, wrote that it was necessary through transportation "to supply the cement of inter- =.st to bind all parts of the Union together by indis- Congress originally in- tended to sponsor ConRail until it was financially able to stand on its own, but that day seems to be far away. ConRail has again come before Congress--hat in hand, palm extended-- asking for more federal dollars. In a time of auster- ity budgets and conflicting priorities, Congress needs answers to some hard ques- tions. The Senate has approved an amendment I proposed that would require closer government examination of ConRairs operatimm. I be- lieve that Congress cannot make informed judgements on budget priorities with- out accurate, concise, and complete reports. My amendment directs I IOATING I TOPICS by Bob Brew=ter I MERCRUSER OUTDOOR CONSULTANT WOOD REINFORCES FIBER6LASS When buying or repairing boats, people are sometimes surprised or puzzled to find wooden reinforcing members buried inside the fiberglass laminate. Is this good or bad, some want to know? Wi]] it even- tually rot and weaken the boat? According to the MerCruiser stern drive boating experts, the incorporation of wood in fiber- glass boats is a recognized and approved practice If the wood is totally dry when built into a fiberglass laminate, and if care is taken to cover it. over completely with fiberglass, wood is very un- likely to rot. This is because a sound covering of fiberglass tends to seal out dampness quite well Also, rot experts believe that the resin brushed onto the wood's surface while the work is being done tends to inhibit GARDEN[ When it comes to roses, less is more.

But, more than a million people in the United States suffer from a far more serious allergic disease: the severe shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing attacks of asthma. An acute attack of asthma is triggered when a par- ticular substance to which the sufferer is allergic, ir- ritates the small bronchial tubes, causing them to swell and secrete a thick mucous which blocks the air passages. During an acute attack, breathing may become nearly impossible. Sweating and straining, the victim wheezes and gasps for air. He feels as if his chest were caught in a vise. Untreated, an attack of chial infections, especially severe colds or flu. Asthma may also be aggravated by allergic reactions to drugs, including penicillin and aspirin, and chemicals and additives in food. Once the cause, or causes, of asthma are discovered, most attacks are preven- table. But don't try to diagnose asthma on your own. Your doctor will pre- scribe treatment and drugs that will help prevent fur- ther attacks. He may recom- Sponsored By: THE BOLIVAR CIVIC ASSOCIATION OCTOBER 14th, 1 7:30 P.
