By Curt Scarborough, Ph.D. Question - Tranquilizers can do great good in helping persons get through crisis situations or in helping with problems of mental illness. Millions of Americans, however, are taking them habitnaily just to deal with the anxiety of living. How many tranqualizer pills are prescribed each year in this coun- try? a) 5 million b) 50 million c) 500 million d) 5 billion Answer. Dr. Jere Goyan, Food and Drug Commissioner, noted that 5 billies tranquailzer pills are prescribed each year. That's an average of 2 pills per month for every man, woman, and child living in the U. 8. "1 hope physicians.., become mere discriminating in prescribing tranquilizers to relieve the symptoms of anxiety," he said. "I hope, tee, that patients will not pressure their phyarlcimuS for - dalgr tilts ~ure .tier clearly needed." He also cautioned tranquilizer users about taking alcohol with drugs that affect the central ner- vons system. Correct answer, d.

We Americans have always been fOr~ard-kx~king people. We've always kept Our eves--and our options--open. An energy option we need to exercise is the use of coal to generate electricity, h makes ~me: coal is our most abundant fuel with OWn reserves that will last more than 300 Years at present rotes of consumption; its c~st is rising slower than that of other fuels; and using it helps reduce our petroleum imports. The largest obstacle to our continued development of this necessary resource is over- Zealous government regulation. By imlx)sing un- .~ce~ary measures this unrealistic ~er-regula- t:on slows (ur pr) o g tess ,'mcre a ses the cost of ~Our electricity, and does little or nothing to Protect the environment. For example: Present standards for coal plants require more stringent emis,slon limits on a plant using low-sulfur coal than a plant using high-sulfur coal, which, in effect, provides an incentive to use "dirtier" coal and penalizes plants that use low-sulfur or "deaner" coal. Regulatory documentation for a permit to mine coal in Texas in 1975 consisted of a single relx)rt about one-half inch thick. Obtaining permits for the same area in 1980 required volumes of relx)rts. We have the technolo~ ttday to use coal cleanly and safely. [t~ plentiful and relatively inexpensive, if its use is not over-regulated. And we need the energy now. TEXAS POWER & LIGHT COMPANY A tax-paying, investor-owned electric utility Pecan producers throughout East Texas are reaching a critical period in their production, says Dr. James Robinson, area entomologist for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. Pecan weevils and hickory shuck wor- ms have been reported in several locations. Either of these insects can destroy a pecan crop. Robinson says that to control the pecan weevil, apply 50 percent or 80 percent sevin wettable powder. To control the hickory shuck worm, use sevin or malathion. Always follow the label directions. Robinson also says that white flies are becoming abundant on ornamen- tabs. A systemic insecticide such as cygon or orthene does a good job con- trolling this insect. A small green worm called the tomato pinworm is damaging tomatoes In some home gardens and greenhouses. The worm is about one- fourth Inch long and eats the leaves, flower bud and bores into the tomato fruit. Sevin or thiodan is effective against the tomato pinworm. Num~*'ous oak trees, primarily red oaks, have died this year in East Texas. Dr. George Philley, Extension area plant pathologist, said the cause is probably related to the drouth last year. Hopefully, the worst is over and those trees that are going to die have done so already. Philley says that a fungal disease called hypoxylon canker has been found on many of these trees. This fungus is often associated with the death of drouth stressed oak trees.
