OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Television Log Tuesday, October 3,1961 : Channel 4, NBC Channel 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Editorials Loophole In The Law There are 26 holders <?f federal wager- ers' tax stamps in Kansas. Also there are 307 stamps issued by the government to owners of slot machines or other types of gambling devices. Uncle Sam annually issues the names ; of holders of such stamps. Kansas news. papers print the list, and the entire state gossips about it. The reason for the gossip is that gambling is illegal in Kansas. It is assumed, safely we are sure, that the holders of the $250 federal stamps are usirfg the devices on which the taxes have been paid for purposes other than free amusement. Usually in a community it is no secret that the Fraternal Order of Jaybirds has a slot machine or that the Umpty Dumpty Country Club has a whole battery of them. More often than not the machines are desired by the club members and painlessly extract from those who belong the money to keep the club quarters, pay • for the annual New Year's party and • supply the groceries for the baskets distributed to the needy at Christmas. Public opinion shields these machines ^ To Your Good Health from raids by local officers. But it shouldn't be this way. Either gambling devices should be legalized by the state or the state law should be changed to make it illegal to possess a federal gambling stamp and the machine to which Uncle Sam says it must be attached. Friend In Need It took two local policemen just a minute to come to the aid of a local citizen who had a burglar cornered several nights ago. This prompt action should give us all a sense of relief, of security. It might also be pointed out that in most cases we hope a policeman isn't around, like the times we are over the speed limit, overpark or slide through a stop sign. Policemen seldom are very popular because they make us do things we would rather not do. But the incident the other night shows that when we need them, we need them urgently. Afraid To Admit Cancer By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: My husband has a growth f ' on the esophagus which refers to as a boil. The union health center told me it is cancerous and that there must be a complete laryngecto- my. "He has been going through chokings, cough- ings, headaches. I have to feed him strained baby food, soups, eggnog and soft noodles. "He will not go to the. - hospital. He stopped smoking' because of too much burning. * but he has not stopped drinking. I can see that it is very painful when he swallows the ; whisky. (It is painful, too, when he swallows his food, but more . so with liquor.) "When I ask him why h e ' drinks so much, he said it gives him a lift and he thinks the alcohol will burn the ' boil off. What can I do? Mrs. M.G'." Dr. nfrolner I cannot possibly be less than blunt. This is ; not a "boil." You know that. It is probably cancer. I'll skip the matter of whether it is on the larynx or he esophagus. There's a difference of ! a few inches. The union health center has found « it to be cancer, and we can put aside any differences of opinion over medical economics. The union health centers have good, conscientious doctors, and we have no quarrels over the one basic aim: The welfare of their patients comes first! Whether a doctor works for a lot of patients in i a union health center, or for a wealthy few on » Park Avenue, he runs into exactly the same sort •of reactons from patients. Told that a "boil" is really cancer, some patients become secretly terrified and refuse to admit the truth. (In fact, the By j This And That Women say a home can't have too many clos- efs, but there must be a anger point beyond which they can't remember in which one the family skeleton is hidden. The football coach at Kansas State urges every student to "stand" up and be >, . counted " He wastes h i s breath. Today's students prefer to be counted sitting down. JPH , Now hinted at is a self- lightng cigarette. This may be progress, but it sounds more like a trick to divert attention from inferior tobacco. More optimistic estimates now are that if they just had enough shelters, only 10 per cent of the people of this country would be killed in the event of nuclear war. This is cheering, but it still leaves the little chore of stockpiling 18 million coffins. We're glad the first astronaut our nation has put into orbit was only a simulated man. This prevents his personal story from appearing ex- clusevely in Life. President Kennedy is said to have more liaison men working with Congress than any White House occupant before him. To revive an old one, is it necessary for them to wear badges to keep from liaising one another? It is close to the place where a fellow uses his credit cards to avoid being mistaken for a bank robber, or a teller with his hands in the till, as explanation for his cash. Whatever else Jack Paar may be, he is not a poor, misunderstod boy, as he likes to have himself taken to be. By now he must be close to rich. Tuesday patient who "lets go" and admits that he's scared to death, is easier to save.) Still better, of course, is the patient who gulps shuts his eye and pray for half a minute, anc then says, "Okay, Doc, that's it. So what do do now?" We save, as it is, one cancer patient in three Most of the saved ones are those who admit the facts, and accept practical help. We should save at least half, and probabl; more. But we can't do so when some patients refuse to accept facts. When one insists that a cancer is a "boil," and tries to "burn it off with alcohol," he is throwing away his 33 per cent or 50 per cent chance, or whatever the chance may be, of being cured. ' (Remember, I beg, that some cancers start deep in the body and are to far along for cure when they are first noticed. For surface cancers, chances are best. Skin cancer cures are 90 or 95 per cent successful; cancers of other accessible surface, throat, larynx, genital organs, often the bowel, and sometime other areas are very good.) The man mentioned in today's letter must immediately take advantage of all the good hopes he possesses. He must give up the idea that he can "burn off the boil" with alcohol. For in his heart he knows that he isn't drinking for that purpose. He's scared. Terrified. Hopelessly? H e shouldn't be. He does have hope, if he'll accept the fact that he can really win. "Dear Dr. Molner: Would taking 30 grains of aspirin a day for a long period for osteoarthirtis predispose one to anemia?—H.M." NOTE TO C.N.B.: No, there's no way of "preventing freckles" in a person who is prone to have them. But neither can I see why there's so much worry over freckles. They're natural! What are ulcers? How should they be treated? What can you do help rid yourself of ulcers and stay rid of them? For answers, read Dr. Molner's helpful new booklet, HOW TO HEAL PEPTIC ULCERS AND KEEP THEM HEALED. For your copy write to Dr. Molner in care of this newspaper, enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20c in coin to cover cost of printing and handling. Dr. Molner is happy to receive readers' questions, and whenever possible uses them in his column. However, due to the great volume of mail received daily. Dr. Molner regrets he cannot answer letters individually. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO C. L. Summers purchased the Richmond newspaper, the Enterprise, from Russell Dizmang. 0. H.

Prayer For Today Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. (John 17:11.) PRAYER: 0 God, kindle in us this day a deeper love for Thy dear Son. By the presence of the Holy Spirit in our hearts, draw us close in our fellowship with one another and with Thee. In our blessed Savior's name.

(AP)-Speake of the House Sam Rayburn ha entered Baylor Hospital when doctors will try to find what i slowing his recovery from a bac ailment. Rayburn will be under the car of a Dallas surgeon, whose nam was not disclosed. He said th tests and consultations would tak several days. An associate of the physicia said Rayburn had lost weight bu his condition appeared good. Ray burn entered the hospital Mon day. The 79-year-old congressman said to be suffering from lumba go. He returned to his Bonham Tex., home Aug. 31 for a rest anc vacation. ,f boy. As if this was not plot enough, )r. Casey at this point gets himself bitten by a woman patient dying of rabies. He has an allergy o rabies shots so he cannot take any treatment and for 30 days doesn't know whether he will survive. Meanwhile, of course, he must complete the surgery on the little boy. I knew that Dr. Casey didn't have rabies, because nobody would knock off a character after whom a series was named in the first show of the season. I would not recommend it for the average lypochrondriac or anyone facing surgery, but it was good, fast- paced and interesting show. He Wants To Go On Flying By FRANCIS STILLEY NEW YORK (AP)-Capt. Dick Merrill, one of the last of the old- time fliers, ends a 41-year career of commercial piloting today. He isn't giving up flying, though. "I'd like to fly until I'm 90," said the veteran pilot who onca filled his plane full of table tennis balls for a historic two-way hop over the Atlantic—so it would float if it wouldn't fly. "I get a terrific kick out of it," he added. "I can pass the physical examination for a license just as well as ever, and I expect to spend much more time in the air." At 67, the trim, erect and tanned Merrill has put in some 37,000 hours aloft and has flown an estimated eight million miles. Merrill, graying but with few marks of age in his face, ends his official piloting career as No. 2 in seniority for Eastern Air Lines. He and Gene Brown, who is No. 1, flew Eastern's first plane 34 years ago. It was a mail craft. Brown is still with the airline. The plane is in the Smithsonian Institution. Ottawa Herald 106-108 a.

Weston, boys' club, provided a rather apt picture of the teenager when he stated: "A teenager has passed the 'stick and snails and puppy-dog tails' stage. By the time he reaches his teens, he's a loosely - wrapped bundle of mature thoughts and desires in a suddenly shooting up body. He finds himself in a new world, no longer fenced by the school playground and the backyard sandbox. The world of a teenager is bonded only by the limits of his imagination. "In his infinity of pleasures and problems of growing up shines i hitches his wagon. . . the star of adult recognition, appreciation and understanding. Each youngster wants to be accepted by his peers; each youngster worries about belonging." Weston pointed out that at one extreme there are gifted children who excel in sports or academics and that at the other extreme are those who gain recognition by breaking the law. The group together claim 10 per cent of the young population whereas the other 90 per cent go hungry for recognition and appreciation. To give praise to all young people, Weston stated, is the purpose of Youth Appreciation Week, which is sponsored by 80,000 Optimists during Nov. 13-19. "Rather than directing atten- i one star to which every teenager J Uon towards juvenile delinquency, we are giving emphasis to teenagers who are not violators and are helping to redeem the reputations of the young people of North America by giving recognition to those who abide by the rules of decency," Weston concluded. Developing better citizens for tomorrow is also the purpose of the American Legion's County Government Program. This project has proven particularly successful in Butler County where ten of the high schools. . . Augusta, El Dorado, Rosalia, Cassoday, Potwin, Berean Academy at Elbing, Towanda, Rose Hill, Douglass and Leon . . . are in the midst of participating for the ninth straight year. Under the theme of "Ameri- canism" and based on the principle of Boys' and Girls' State, the program in county government in miniature. Junior class students, register, circulate petitions, hold a party caucus and chose candidates, campaign, hold political rallies, conduct a primary and a general election, have the elected take the oath of office and then hold a government participation day. The members of the senior classes serve as party chairmen and campaign managers for the parties. Suffrage is extended to all high school students who register. Appointive county offices are given to unsuccessful candidates with the selections determined by the three newly elected county commissioners. Participation day is held at £1 Dorado High School where the elected are introduced at a convention, and at the courthouse where they confer with officials on the duties of their respective offices. At a dinner that evening in the American Legion Hall, the officials report on their activities to the group. Later the elected officials report to their own student bodies. Edward Freemen, post commander of Leonard Whithill Post No. 189 in Augusta, had this to say about the project: "The initiation and support of the County Government Program in Butler County is an activity we can point to with price. It's potential benefit to young people is one we feel should be shared with all Kansas American Legion Posts and •chool*."
