health
%farm aims
to shape
up, clients

By JULIE SELBST
If you're one of those persons who has to get
friends and acquaintances to swear those excess
five pounds you put on while hibernating this
winter really do look good, don't despair.
Jim Jones, a clinical psychologist and the dean
of student services at Washtenaw Community
College, plans to open a 20-acre health farm
outside Ann Arbor for curing all sorts of ills,
excess weight included.
"It's not for weight loss only," Jones said. "We
have a complete program of individual and
group counseling as well as a recreational and
group exercise program and food and fasting
supervision when appropriate," he explained.
JONES SAID he also hopes to help people with
such complaints as headaches, pains in the
chest, and other "more symptomatic"

complaints, but only after he has received
clearance from a physician that the problems
are not rooted in psheyological causes.
The farm will be run by Jones and his wife, and
a staff of seven, including one psychiatrist, three
clinical psychologists, and social workers. All
are certified by the state in their respective
positions.
Jones and his wife got the idea for the health
farm last year when they visited a hygienic
health spa in Florida. Since they were planning
to buy a farm'anyway, they decided to expand it
into an entire health farm venture.
"I HAVE A private practice that is wholistic
now," Jones said. "The only thing we're doing
that is new is adding the residential aspect.
"We teach natural eating," he continued. "To
us, natural eating is only fresh fruits and

vegetables, period. A lot of people who consider
themselves vegetarians do eat fruits and do eat
vegetables, but not in the right combinations."
Along with natural eating, Jones and his staff
hope to teach each other aspects of the wholistic
approach to health. These include ebiofeedback,
progressive mmuscle relaxation, and polarity
therapy.
POLARITY THERAPY is a system of
"body manipulation" to lessen the bad'effects of
toxic accumulation in the body, Jones explained.
"If you manipulate the body you can eliminate
(the toxic accumulations)," Jones said.
"Through manipulation you free the blockage
and free the energy flow. It is not massage."
But Jones was quick to point out that
techniques such as yoga or polarity therapy are
not enough in and of themselves. "Along with

that," he added, "people must change their
whole dietary habits."
He said the ideal length of time to spend at the
farm would be two weeks, during which time
participants would latend daily classes and
lectures on such subjects as nutrition, disease,
and yoga, and the value of distilled water.
"We prefer two weeks, but in reality some
people can't afford two weeks. There would be a
minimum of a week situation," Jones said.
Although the cost will be $400 per week, Jones
said he plans to put together a less expensive
weekend package.
Jones has had a great deal of correspondence
from residents of the affluent Detroit suburbs of
Bloomfield Hills and Grosse Pointe. "We already
have a mailing list of 200 to 300 names," Jones
said.

Carter asks
athletes to
back. Olypi
boycott
From UPI and AP
WASHINGTON - President
Carter yesterday told a group of U.S.
Olympic athletes that the United
States "will not go", to the 1980
Moscow gamed and he urged the
athletes to join him in "preserving
the principles" of the games.
As a response to the Soviet in-
asion of Afghanistan, Carter has.
said the United States will not par-
ticipate in the events which begin in
July.
THE PRESIDENT told the group
he hopes to sponsor alternative
competitions in late August, but said
he was not "naive" and realized
alternate games would not have the
same prestige.
Carter, who, received no applause.
when he walked into the 'White
ouse East Room to meet with a
ontingent of about 150 athletes and
U.S. Olympic officials, defended his
boycott .as "preserving the prin-
ciples of the Olympics . . . not

European countries are 'meeting

"I can't say at this moment what
other nations will go to the Summer
Olympics in Moscow," Carter said.
"Ours will not go. I say that not with
any equivocation. The decision has.
been made."
CARTER CALLED the athletes to
Washington for a face-to-face talk
about the boycott and his plan to set
up an alternative Olympics for those
who don't participate in Moscow.
Before meeting with Carter, the
athletes were briefed by presidential
aides Zbigniew Brzezinski, Carter's
national security adviser, outlined
for the athletes the reasons 'for the
boycott. Lloyd Cutler, special White
House counsel, briefed the athletes
on the plans for the substitute com-
petition.
In urging the athletes to accept the
boycott, Carter said the American
people and Congress have expressed
support for his stand.

Presidential contenders gear up for New
York primary; Reagan gathers support

Kennedyv
... reiterates economic policies

From UPI and AP
Ronald Reagan's drive for the
Republican presidential nomination
yesterday gained additional steam with
four U.S. senators endorsing his can-
didacy and key party leaders predic-
ting he would control New York's big
delegation.
Reagan was endorsed by assistant
GOP leader Ted Stevens of Alaska,
Peter Domenici of New Mexico, Alan
Simpson of Wyoming, and Larry
Pressler of South Dakota.
TOP REPUBLICANS predicted at
least 80 of the 123 GOP delegates to be
elected in New York's primary Tueday
would back Reagan, who got almost no
delelgates from New York in,1976 when
he fell just short of the GOP
nomination.
Reagan and former U.N. Am-
bassador George Bush are putting up
delegate slates in some congressional
districts, but in many of them the
organizational slates which are sup-
posedly uncommitted are the only ones
on the ballot. The leaders said most of
those uncommitteds would go to
Reagan.
Saying Connecticut "can be the tur-
ning point" in his presidential cam-
paign, Bush sought to portray himself
as the lone Republican candidate who
reflects the mainstream thinking of the
GOP.
BUSH IS preparing a major
restatment of his views, to be given in a
speech at Yale University. A campaign
aide said Bush will deliver the address
Monday, the day before the Connecticut
and New York primaries.
ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN John An-
derson wound up his Connecticut cam-
paign, saying he might register a com-
plaint with the Fair Campaign Prac-
tices Commission over some of Bush's
television and radio commercials. An-
derson said the advertisements distort
his position on gasoline taxes.

The commercials assert that his
proposed 50-cent-a-gallon excise tax on
gasoline is a cruel and regressive tax on
working people, the congressman said.
On the Democratic side, Vice
President Walter Mondale said
President Carter is gaining re-election
support because he "is dealing with the
problems that face America." Sen.
Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) said
Congress should stiffen the so-called
"windfall profits" taxi on the oil com-
panies.
KENNEDY CONTINUED his last-
ditch fight in New York where he faces
Carter in next Tuesday's primary. A
poll published in the New York Daily
News yesterday shows him trailing 2-1
in the state.
Carter and Reagan are well ahead in
the delegate race and have a string of
primary victories that makes it appear
they will be hard to stop in the-battle for
the Democratic and Republican
nominations.
Campaigning in New York City and
Syracuse, N.Y., Kennedy reaffirmed
his call for a freeze on prices, profits,
wages, interest rates, rents and
dividends. He said the plan would cut
the current annual 18 per cent inflation
rate by "two-thirds to three-fourths" in
one month.
REAGAN, BUSH, and Anderson will
be on Michigan's May 20 GOP presiden-
tial ballot along with dark horse Harold
Stassen and Benjamin Fernandez, elec-
tions officials said yesterday. Yester-
day was the deadline for candidates to
confirm their wishes to appear on the
ballot.
On the Democratic side, top presiden-
tial contenders apparently heeded the
call of state party leaders for a boycott
of the primary in favor of the April 26
closed caucuses. Carter and Kennedy,
who both promised to stay out of the
primary, had not filed as the deadline
approached.
