Chiropractic Health Hints



Football, basketball, hockey and other sports whose very nature results
in bodily contact between the players are the most frequent offenders. Broken
limbs and serious cuts can take a player out of the game and require im-
mediate treatment.
But what of the less obvious injuries, those which may start as a minor
ache or sprain and may not appear for hours, days or even weeks after the
initial cause?
Many athletic injuries are not even the result of bodily contact, and the
sufferer cannot recall any extraordinary activity which might have caused
his condition.
Golfers or tennis players may dislocate a shoulder during a swing or serve. The baseball out-
fielder can develop a cervical subluxation (disloation of the vertebrae) while craning his neck to
follow a high fly ball. A skater might hit a hole in the ice and fall, resulting in whiplash.
Since the normal functioning of a healthy body is dependent on the flow of nerve energy to
all parts of the body, it is important that such subluxations be corrected. If a vertebra is dislocated,
it will pinch the nerve between it and the succeeding vertebra and reduce the flow of vernous energy
to one or more vital organ or muscle structures. Head and neck pains, nausea, or numbness may result.
As a trained specialist in the spine, nerves, and muscles, the Doctor of Chiropractic is especial-
ly qualified to deal with injuries involving dislocated bones or torn muscles. He works to correct
the cause of the impairment, not just alleviate the symptoms through pain-killing drugs.
It is the "amateur" who is most susceptible to athletic injuries. While the professional has
learned to protect his body whenever possible, such protection has not become a "second nature"
to the amateur.
If you participate in any type of sports activity, regular examinations by your Doctor of Chiroprac-
tic should be included in your calendar of activities. Early treatment of even minor injuries is more
economical and more effective than waiting until "something must be done."

Jews Fleeing USSR
Deserve Refuge

New York (YEA) - Fifty-one
years after they were denied
entry into the United States
and turned back to Europe,
survivors of the St. Louis
gathered last week to offer
their moral support to Soviet
Jews now seeking refuge.
Susan Schleger, Dr. Hans
Fisher and Liane Reif-
Lehrer held a small rally at
the Isaiah Wall opposite the
United Nations to warn that
American failure to support
Israel could leave Soviet
Jews to a similar fate they
themselves suffered in 1939.
"We were not wanted. We
were abandoned by the
world," said Schleger, a 68-
y e ar- old survivor now
residing in New York. "We
must now try our utmost to
get the Soviet Jews out. It's
not fair to ask the Russians
to let the Jews out and then
not to do anything about it."
The gray and threatening
sky did not diminish the
symbolic impact of the set-
ting. The survivors stood be-
neath a prayer shawl res-
cued from the Holocaust
with the prophet Isaiah's
famous words etched into
the wall in the background:
"Nation shall not lift up
sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war
On what is now called "the
Voyage of the Damned," the
St. Louis embarked from
Hamburg in May 1939, with
a human cargo of 1,128 Jews
fleeing Nazi Germany.
Bound originally for Cuba,
the ill-fated ship was denied
entry into any port on this
side of the Atlantic, in-
cluding a U.S. port in
With no place to land, the
ship was forced back to
Europe, where the passen-
gers were received according
to an international agree-
ment signed by England,
Holland, _Belgium and

small child at the time of the
voyage. She is now writing a
book about her and other St.
Louis survivors' stories.
"It's hard to compare" the
flight from Nazi Germany
and the Soviet exodus now
taking place, she said. "But I
feel that where people are
being hassled or persecuted,
Jews or otherwise, they need
to be given a haven."
"As open and violent anti-
Semitism begins to reappear
in parts of the Soviet Union
and Eastern Europe," said
Fisher, a professor at
Rutgers University, "Israel
becomes the only haven for
hundreds of thousands of
The three urged Jews and
non-Jews alike to participate
in the Salute to Israel pa-
rade to take place in New
York on May 13.
According to Rabbi Joseph
Sternstein, chairman of the
American Zionist Youth
Foundation, which is spon-
soring the parade, AZYF
thought that the St. Louis
survivors would be a strong
reminder to American Jews
of what could happen to
Soviet Jewry if they fail to
support Israel and Israeli
resettlement of Soviet Jews.
"This is a stark symbol of
the historic contrast of the
world in which we live to-
day, in which the State of
Israel exists as a national
homeland for Jews, and
1939, when it didn't," he
"That Israel is now under
political pressures from all
sides, not excluding our na-
tional administration, in-
dicates the importance of
this public demonstration of
Jews as reflective of their
support for the State of
Israel," he said.

After most of Europe, with
the exception of England,
was overrun by the Nazis,
few of those refugees surviv-
ed the war years.
The 75 who did survive
met last year in Miami for
their 50th reunion. Only
then did some of them decide
to become vocal on behalf of
the Soviet Jews now fleeing
rising popular anti-Semitism
in their homeland.
"I spent a lot of my life try-
ing to forget about all this,"
said Reif-Lehrer, a scientist
from Boston, who was a

Colombian police found
