THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Page THE NEIGHBORS Talk Of Our Town Some Fund, Eh? Monday, Nov. 19, 1962 BY BOB OTTO DR. LELAND MILES, coordinator of English programs for three UC co-op units, wondered Just where he'd get the money for expenses connected with the recent visit of Dr. Harold Whitehall of Indiana U, one of the country's top linguistic scholars. Dean Nell Wandmacher of the Engineering College told Dr. Miles there was a "Schmidt Fund" established for Just such a purpose . '. . "to advance the Engineering College, and English Is part of It," as the dean put It. Dr. Miles located the fund, a $5000 one set up in 1952 In memory of Oscar C. Schmidt Income from the fund was made available to Dr. Miles for the visit of Dr. Whitehall. The Incident Is cited by Dr. Miles to show the apparent unlikely connection of the business Mr. Schmidt had with the program of the English Department In bringing a lecturer to town. Mr. Schmidt's business was the Cincinnati Butchers supply Co. ON THE OTHER SIDE Of town (XU'S campus), some faculty members are taking renewed interest In the Fs ... but not the type they give for low grades. Nor do these 4Fs refer to the World War n Selective Service rating reserved for those Judged physically Incapable of being drafted. The XU profs, prodded by Dr. Thomas J. Hailstones of the College of Business Administration, and Dr. Sidney W. Hale, assistant professor of physical education, have formed "Fyslcal Fitness For Faculty." Its chief aim Is to get the profs to take regular physical exercise . . . handball, tennis, volley ball, squash. Says Dr. Hailstones: "As profs, we try to reduce the fat between students' ears. The least we can do is reduce it around our own midriffs." ' AL HUNEKE, WHO runs one of the country's better weeklies In the Western Hills Press, laid it on the line In a postelection editorial. For the first time In a long voting career, said Al, he left his ballot unmarked for a major office because "the candidates did such an outstanding Job of discrediting each other that we decided we could not afford to risk voting for either for strictly negative reasons." SOUNDS AND SIGHTS: A grandfather we know relates that his kindergarten grandson asked, "Dad, who's Richard Stanz? We talk about him In school every morning." Dad was baffled until the tyke said: "Here's how we do it: 'I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for Richard Stanz.'" There's still an Alms St Doepke Customers' Parking Lot on Sycamore Street near Reading Road, though the department store was closed years ago. World Beat Sport By Rail BY DAVE ROBERTS IN THE LAST decade I've suggested on several occasions that railroads might attract some extra passenger business which 'tis said, they don't want if they'd ofler a program of hunting and fishing trips using luxury rail facilities. Returning from western Nebraska a few days ago, aboard the Union Pacific's great City of Portland, I toyed with the idea. It cant be said that this thought sprang, full blown, from my own brain. Some years ago the Province of Ontario, with full co-operation of the Canadian National, the Canadian Pacific, the On-trio Northland and the Algoma Central ' Railroads, provided this type of accommodations for groups of newspaper travel and outdoor writers. I was fortunate enough to participate In several of these annual ventures. Each trip was such a near approach to perfection that it seems to me they would certainly be popular, once they could be offered on a commercial basis. The cost would be high but, all things considered, quite reasonable. Suppose some enterprising, outdoor-travel-minded individual should lease a 12-bedroom sleeping car and couple thereto an "office" car, comprising a galley, dining room, four bedrooms and an observation deck. Here would be accommodations for at least 16 persons on a one-to-a-room basis. This unit would be self-sustaining, with a well-stocked kitchen, an expert chef, a steward and a porter. The one-to-a-room ratio would be particularly Important on such a trip, for each trip member would have a lot of hunting and fishing gear. Any number of itineraries could be offered. Various sections of the United Like Starlings Scare Press BY ART BCCHWALD THE WHITE HOUSE has taken off against starlings and well It should. For years various Presidents of the United States have been bothered by these pests who roost on the beautiful facade and In the trees, making a mess of the President's carefully worked out programs. Now, according to a White House spokesman, a recording of a distressed starling Is being played In the trees, and It Is hoped that when other starlings hear It they will be frightened away. The White House even played the record of the distressed starling for unbelieving newspapermen. The spokesman was then asked why the starling on the record was In distress. The spokesman replied he did not know, but there was no need to hurt a starling to make It cry out. At this point a man from the National Geographic Magazine revealed that the way to make a starling scream out in distress was to hang it upside down by Its feet. This Is all well and good for starlings, but they havent been the administration's only problem. Lately the New Frontier has been bothered by news leaks in the Pentagon and State Department, so much so that directives have come out warning State and Defense Departments personnel against talking to news- States, Canada and Mexico could be visited. Hunting and fishing arrangements could be combined, or trips could be devoted exclusively to one or the other. Suppose a unit such as I've suggested, filled with 16 anglers and nimrods, were coupled to a train In Cincinnati in late August, transferred to the Union Pacific in Chicago and carried straight to Idaho. There it could be shunted to a railroad siding the evening before the opening of the dove season. By prearrangement rental cars would be waiting with necessary guides at the tracks. Trip members either could a-gunning go, or they could set up their fly rods and try for trout. The group might remain there four or five days, feasting not only on the best of beef, but the best of dove and trout. When time came for departure, the unit would be attached to the night train, and by morning would be on the West Coast, ready for some steelhead and salmon fishing. Thence they'd travel to Manitoba or Saskatchewan for prairie chicken, ducks, geese and more fishing. They'd be home at the end of September the loveliest time of year. Proper planning would place the two railroad cars on sidings where supplies and laundry facilities would be available. Land transportation, with local hunting and fishing guides, would be arranged well in advance. The whole party would live aboard the" train but If individual members wished to shift for a night or two say to the Lodge at Sun Valley this could easily be arranged. The cost? I don't know. I doubt if it would be nearly as high as the cost of a similar expedition individually planned. papermen without reporting it to their respective press officers. In the case of the Defense Department, Assistant Secretary of Defense Arthur Sylvester has instituted a monitor system, where no one may talk to a member of the press without sending Sylvester a memo or having a third person present from his office. This, of course. Is all In the Interest of national security, though there are some skeptics who claim it could also be used to cover up a lot of blunders. But what Mr. Sylvester could do If he was really determined to keep the press away from the Pentagon Is, Instead of playing a recording of a distressed starling, to set up a loudspeaker outside the Pentagon and play a record of a screaming distressed Journalist, thus scaring other Journalists away from the building. Now the question is: How do you distress a Journalist? Quite simple. You refuse to tell him the truth and immediately he's In great pain and yelling at the top of his voice. What Mr. Sylvester could do at his next press briefing Is to record the voices of several newspapermen as he tells them he has no Intention of answering their questions. He could select the most frightening of these voices, which he could place on a record and play in the parking lots of the Pentagon. Your Health Get Ready For Fires BY DR. VAN DELLEN ' THERE IS nothing more terrifying than to be trapped by fire. Is your family prepared for this emergency? Do you have the telephone number of the fire department near your telephone? Where is the nearest call box in your neighborhood? THOSE WHO know what to do ahead of time are likely to get out alive. This is seldom appreciated because most of us have never gone through the experience. There is no substitute for pre-planning In case of fire. Get the family together this evening and discuss the possibility. Teach everyone how to notify the fire department quickly and correctly. Firemen do not look for the smoke; they can get there faster when the address is known. Talk about exit routes and be sure they are clear, especially of objects that bum readily or block escape. The discussion should Include the availability of methods to fight small fires with water or extinguishers. A HOSE in the basement, for example, is a powerful weapon if it Is near a faucet and ready to use. A bucket of sand or a blanket also helps smother some fires. Portable home extinguishers are available. Don't neglect to talk over the possibility of fire with the baby-sitter. She ought to know the escape routes and the right way to call the fire department. Have her follow the fire authorities' advice: "Oet everybody out fast, and dont go back in." FIRE PREVENTION Is a story in itself. Most victims die because they were asleep and didnt waken in time to escape the heat and smoke. The mortality rate from fires Is high among unattended children; panic and Ignorance play a major role. Now Is the time to take action, as your home or apartment may be next. RUBBING AWAY SCARS A. U. writes: Does the sandpaper treatment of acne scars hurt?
