4-Ballard News-Tribune, Wednesday, August 4, 1982 ii7!i p's got secret to youth, but he'll tell How does U.S. Sen. Henry M. J~ kson do it? ,ok so trim and youthful at 70, I me. ~, when lots of men, especially his peers in the political game, are flabby bundles of nerves at much younger ages. The answer, as one might expect, is that old watchword "modera- tion," along with a regimen he's maintained for many years. "I get more miles per gallon," Jackson told me. "I don't have to eat much and I watch my diet, but the key is exercise." It was back during the Army-Mc- Carthy hearings that Jackson be- gan suffering from a muscle cramp condition caused by sitting in one position too long. "The general at Walter Reed Hospital recommended that I en- gage in vigorous exercise all my life, which I've done," said Jack- son. "It was the best advice I ever received. The secret to good health is to pick good ancestors with a long life cycle, then the old virtue of moderation along with regular exercise." Since that day, 30 years ago, "Scoop" has set aside a time each day, between 6 and 7 p.m when he swims a quarter of a mile. He does some running, lifts weights, topping Commenl by Stanford who spends many hours on the telephone with her dad, getting his assistance with her history and other studies. Son Peter is 16 and working this summer for consumer advocate Ralph Nader, which sets off many debates between father and son. The family fishes. They went to Hawaii last summer for two weeks and to England and Norway the previous summer, so they spend a lot of time together. So, maybe the real secret to looking youthful at 70 is to lead a happy, contented life---"Scoop" Jackson certainly is living proof of it. !t, IB T/oN UNDUE ) v q t --- l,- B um"l 411 ~l'l,pt ~ "--4 Editorial this off with a few minutes in a steam bath and an ice-cold shower. "If I miss a day of exercise, I feel it," said Jackson. "I feel a bit sluggish." He also works at maintaining his weight at 175 pounds which is onlya couple more than he weighed as a college student, but he goes on and off the Scarsdale Diet. "I fight it all the time," the senator said. "I have a congenital infirmity. My mother weighed 203 pounds when she died, but she was 90 years old." Rest is important to him. He arises at 6 a.m. each day and is in bed by lt):30 p.m. He often avoids hectic weekend schedule many of his fellow Washington congressmen have of taking the "red eye special" plane home from their districts until midnight Sunda~/s. Instead, he leaves Sunday at ,~:30 p.m flies to Chicago, and spends a night there, taking the 7 am. flight to the capital Monday morning. Jackson doesn't smoke and rarely drinks. When he does, it's scotch and water, but he never drinks on campaign trips, when he puts in 16-hour days. He also is one of those people who is stimulated rather than being overwhelmed by his work. Jackson knows how to relax though. And much of his relaxation is with his family.

All iqO~ le~o~ed Trident submarine ryes a , not protest While we have no quarrel with those who actively oppose nuclear war or arms proliferation, we feel that the plans of some to picket in protest of the arrival of the first Trident submarine--the "Ohio"--are ill-advised. After all, no one of sane mind wants a nuclear confrontation, least of all those men and women who serve in America's military forces. Most of them enlisted for just the opposite reasons, hoping to prevent such a holocaust and protect our heritage. Plans to blithely launch a fleet of assorted water-craft in the path of this behemoth of the seas would be a reckless gesture, endangering the lives of both the protesters and the Navy crews. We find it particularly ironic that many of the so-called peace pickets have sailed here from Australia, where a previous generation wel- comed American troops as saviours in World War II. Bangor, on scenic Hood's Canal, may indeed have been a poor stra- tegic choice to locate this mam- moth submarine base, but both the base and the ships that will be moored there are now "facts of life." Most of the personnel who serve on the subs have families and friends who reside here and have been looking forward for months to welcoming them home. The protesters have already made their point that they don't like nuclear submarines, and to turn the arrival into a media event may well hurt their cause. A boycott by the media n]ight help dim the picnic atmosphere and help ensure a proper homecoming for citizens just as patriotic, peace-loving and religious as the demonstrators are. Personally, we hope that the naval high command, whose arrival schedule is secret, will decide to have the "Ohio" come in under- water, in the dead of night if neces- sary, and spoil the plans for a flotilla blockade. But we do think it's a shame if our own U.S. Navy has to sneak into home port, when they deserve a marine parade. All hats .in primary ring 32nd District Republicans will meet Tuesday, Aug. 10, at 7:30 pm. in the Woodland Park Church of God, 3902 Woodland Park N. Larry Penberthy and Doug Jewett, two of the six GOP candidates seeking the U.S. Senate seat held by Senator Henry Jackson, will be the guest speakers. Penberthy, a businessman and successful industrial inventor, has developed processes for working with glass that have resulted in safety products for business and recreation. He is an avid mountaineer with 29 trips to the top of Mr. Rainier to his credit. He has applied his technical skills to improving climbing equip- ment and believes these skills should be applied to government. "In view of the fact that ,~0 percent of the federal budget has technical content, I see in the senate too many lawyers and not enough businessmen and people strong in technology," he stated. Penberthy was born in Tacoma and is a graduate of the College of Puget Sound with further studies at the University of Rochester. Doug Jewett, the present Seattle City Attorney, was born in Chicago and is a graduate of Dartmouth College and the Yale Law School. Jewett issued a statement of position: "First, I endorse the intent of President Reagan's call for a New Federalism that would shift control over numerous federal programs to state and local govern- ments. Second, I support a constitu- tional amendment to require a' balanced budget, which could be unbalanced only by a two-thirds vote of both houses of Congress." Other Republicans in the U.S. Senate race include C.E. Stites, Oak Harbor; Patrick Sean McGowan, Seattle; Clarice Privitte Ken Talbot, Vashon. Democrats in the race are incumbent Henry Jackson,; Arthur Bouder, Seattle; Williams Harly Davis, Seattle; James Sherwood Stojkes, Port Orchard; and John Hugo Frye Patric, Snohomish. If you can't find a favorite among the party listings, other challengers are State Senator King Lysen and Political parade By MURIEL LITTLE Jesse Chiang, both running as Independents, and Christopher Remple, Socialist Worker. All the hats are now in the ring for the September primary election. 32nd District: Senate seat--in- cumbent Democrat AI Williams, Republicans Tod Bigelow and Christopher Daniels; House Posi- tion I---incumbent Democ/at Joanne Brekke, Democrat Jeff B.

"The Legislature is failing tO provide the necessary incentives to foster growth and development in the private sector, which is the only place from which real economic prosperity can come," he said. There are 335 candidates statewide for state legislative seats, but only 70 of those candidates are women. That is a better precentage that l0 years ago, but it's still a long way from 50-50.
