OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Tuesday, October 10, 1961 Editorials Are Voters Stupid? A lengthy, scholarly and highly technical legal opinion drawn by the city attorney and presented to the city commission has apparently paved the way for powers that be to toss out a petition signed by more than 1,300 Ottawans. This protest petition would block a proposed city revenue bond sale of $780,000 to expand the city light plant with the purchase of another 3500 kilowatt gas- diesel engine. Rejection of the petition would come a$ no surprise. Since its circulation was started, city officials have opposed it by every means possible. These range from the flattering rumor that we own stock in a private power company to an open house at the light plant, an event which cost the taxpayer a nice sum in the man-hours worked by city employes to get the place spruced up for public viewing. We can't see what harm would come This And That by jph from allowing the public to vote on this $780,000 bond issue. After all, the light plant belongs to the people, not our elected officials. The dollars the city officials plan to spend are not their dollars. They come from our pockets. If the course of action contemplated is proper and defensible, why, then should the carrying out of a democratic process be feared? It is granted that the problem is complex, that it has many facets, but we don't hold with the idea promoted by the city administration that the public should not be allowed to vote on it because the average voter isn't smart enough to understand it. The city commission should welcome the interest of the people in city government. It should support this interest, not thwart it. Properly explained we are confident the average voter is as capable of understanding the city's problems as any member of the commission. Pakistani Press Limited Television Log Ihannel 4, NBC Channel 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Tuesday JPR KARACHI — Perhaps you are wondering what we are doing out in this part of the world. So, at moments, are we. Well, it has nothing whatsoever to do with either their government or ours. It is part of a small, volunteer project being carried on by an organization of newspapers with members in most of the nations of the non - Communist world. The project is one in which the old and experienced, journalistically speaking, in an informal way are trying to help the young and weak. The purpose is not to tell them what sort of newspapers they should be, but to provide know-how to help them succeed. The belief is that the free world must be an informed world if it is to survive. So far, of course, we, as strictly a one-man band, have been too busy learning the pattern of the press here to contribute to its progress. The pattern is fixed by two hard facts. At least 85 per cent of the people cannot read. As high a percentage cannot afford a daily newspaper, even if it could read. Those limitations on the Pakistani press for the moment are absolute. There are others almost as forbidding. Newsprini is priced one-third higher than it is in the states. ,lr>% wound on such light cores and so poorly packed that waste makes the true cost even higher. The papers lack trained editors, reporters, printers, pressman, and machinists. They have no place to turn for replacements. They don't even have enough skilled personnel effectively to train others. Even more important immediately To Your Good Health they lack repair parts, even in plants where they have sufficient machinery. Blacksmithing here does miracles but in one office the best linotype has been idle for weeks for lack of a few small springs. In another a new automatic ingraving machine still rests in its original packing crate because no one has been able to interpret the instruction book. There are no supermarkets, department stores, discount houses, or even retail stores as America knows them in Karachi. So where are the merchants to advertise? Although the condition is gradually improving, consumer goods of almost every sort are in short supply. So what is there to advertise? Confronted with such problems an American publisher would throw up his hands in despair. He would say it couldn't be done and either go fishing or on relief. But the Pakistani publishers are doing it. They started from scratch since the formation of their nation, which is on the eve of celebrating its 14th birthday. Most of them are still scratching, but one or two of them have it made. Government and movie advertising provide their bread. Airline, automotive, cosmetic, and luxury goods advertising (their readers after all are the rich and elite) supplies a small coating of butter. The newspapers have a weakness for government handouts and the texts of speeches of public officials. Local news to them is largely an unexplored field. But their coverage of world events is much more extensive than it is at home. The largest paper may have no more than 30,000 subscribers, but remember only 15 per cent of the people are literate. It is printed in Urdu, but English - language papers have the bulk of tht circulation as a whole. The British have departed, but their strong imprint still remains. 1:00 4—Picture of the Day 5—Early Snow 9—Popeyc 13—Roy Rogeri »:30 4—Highway Patrol &—Early Snow 9—Popeye 13—Camera Corner t:40 13—Sport* — De» Ntliou »:5S 9—Sport* 13—Weather — Gordon Jump «:09 4—New« G—News with Harold Hack »—Ozzle It Harriet 13—News with L>uu HarrlROB 6:10 4—Sports—Monte Moore 5—Weather with Johnny Tales 6:15 4—Huntley-Brlnkley Report 5-ia—News with Douglai Edward* 6:30 4—Laramie . 5-13—Marshal Dillon 9—Bugs Bi nny 7:00 4—Laramte 5—Dick Van Dykt 8—Bachelor Father 13—Whiplash j:30 4—A Hitchcock G-lS—Dotne Glllls 9—Calvin & The Colonel 8:00 4—Dick Powell 6-13—Red Skelton 9—New Breed 8::iO 4—Dick Powell 5—Death Valley Days 9—New Breed 13—Jim Backus 11:00 4—Cain's Hundred 5-13—Gary Mooie 9 —Alcoa Presents, »:30 4—Cain's Hundred 5-13—Gary Moore 8—World Series Special 10:00 4-5-9-13—New* 10:10 4-5—Weather 10:15 4—Jack Paar 5—Ichabod & M« 9—Peter Gunn 10:30 12—Sportj—Dev Neison 10:30 4—Jach Pnar 5—Ichabod & Me 9—Peter Gunn 13—Hawaiian Eye 10:45 5—Five Star Theater, "If All Came True" 9—Big Show, "Child of th* Regiment" 11:00 4—lacfc Paar 5—Five Stir TbuKler 9—Big Show 13—Hawaiian Eye 11:30 4—Jack Paar 5—Five-Star Thentr* 9—Big Show 12:00 4—News 9—Daily Word 12:10 6—Studio Five, "Brotherly Love" Wednesday Tests Can Reveal Diabetes M»taei ly DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: Would you explain when 'suspected diabetes' passes into the category of 'known diabetes'? Can tests verify the period during which this take place?— C.F." . 1C you mean, can tests tell in j advance when (or iO a suspected case will turn into a known j case, or confirmed case, the answer is no. Some fairly shrewed guessing sometimes j proves to be correct, but even good guessing isn't dependable. However, once the dividing line has been passed, it is pos- ] sible to determine the fact definitely. A suspected diabetic is a person who may have occasional sugar in the urine, and occasional periods when the concentration of blood sugar is elevated. It becomes a known case when sugar is present regularly in the urine and — this is important — the blood sugar level does not return to fhe normal fasting level within 2 or 2Vi hours. Indeed, the second test is more important than the first, because the real danger in diabetes lies in the body's inability to use up or get rid of excess blood sugar. This may be getting a bit complicated, but it is significant. Let's say that a case of diabetes is confirmed. Then, by proper diet and medication (whether insulin, diabetes pills or both) the case is brought into balance so that no more sugar is taken into the system than can be disposed of. The patient may even go for long periods without sugar showing in the urine. That's fine! The diabetes is under control. But it does not mean that it is "cured." The condition is there, ready to cause trouble if ever we are careless enough to stop taking the necessary precautions. There is still a third term to keep in mind, the "potential diabetic," who may not yet be a "suspected diabetic" — although the dividing line between "potential" and "suspected" can often be *o thin that the difference vanishes. Potential diabetic* — people who are likely to develop diabetes — are marked by such signs as these: Those who under certain circumstances may have a showing of sugar in the urine or an abnormal sugar tolerance test, such as obese per- sons; ethose with a strong family history of diabetes; some women who have large babies, by which I mean over 8 or 8'/2 pounds. The "certain conditions" under which sugar may appear include situations involving stress, as with the use of cortisone, during surgery, or severe infection. Afterward the sugar may return to normal. All the same, these individuals may properly be regarded as potential or suspected diabetics, since there is a relatively strong chance that some of them will develop diabetes later on. The term, "known diabetic." has another connotation. We use it to signify people whose cases have been definitely identified, as opposed to the million, or perhaps several million people who have diabetes but don't yet know it. Even,' year, during the diabetes campaigns, we find thousands. "Dear Dr. Molner: How long can a person live on just creamed coffee and cigarets? A woman in our neighborhood claims it won't hurt you because the coffee stimulates, the cream provides food and cigarets can be pleasing. —Mrs. M.B." I guess you could last quite awhile — but you'd wind up with scurvy, bad nerves and a terrible yearning for some solid food. The idea is utter hogwash. Mrs. H.B.: If a thunderstorm causes you to have "heart trouble," it seems to me that the problem is more nervous than physical, which is just what your doctor has been telling you, if I correctly read between the lines. Never take a chance on diabetes! For better understanding of this disease, write to Dr. Molner in care of Box 158, Dundee, 111., for a copy of his booklet, "Diabetes — The Sneaky Disease." Please enclose a long, self-addressed, envelope and 25c in coin to cover cost of handling. 4—Contenial Classroom 'i£-Frofile t:SO 4—Contental Classroom 13—College of the Air «:45 6—50,000 Lives «:5S 5—Farm Fact* 7:00 4—Today 5—College of the Air 13—Rush Hour. 7:13 9—Good Morning 7:30 4—Today 5—Moment of Meditatioa 9—Shakespeare 13—Ruah Hour 7:38 5—Cartoonland 7:45 9— Good Morning World 8:00 4—Today B-13—Captain Kangaroo 9 Heckle and Jeckle 8:05 9—Cartoons 8:11 5-13—Captain Kangaroo 8:30 4—Today 5-lu—Captain Kangaroo 9—Whlzzo's Wonderland • :00 4— Say When •i—Jack La Lanne 0—Romper Roon> 13—Calendar 1:30 4--Play Your Huncb' 5-13—1 Love Lucy 8—Masterpiece Movie, "Hollywood Canteen" 10:00 4—Price la Right 3-13—Video Village 9—Movie 10:30 4—Series Spotlight 5—Your Surprise F&clcage S—Movie 13—Series Special 10:45 4-13—World Series 10:55 a—Newi UsOO 4-13—World Series 5—Love of Life ' B—Texan 11:30 4-13—World Series 4—It Could Be You S—Search for Tomorrow 9—Love That Bob 11:45 5—Guiding Light 12:00 N'oon 4-13—World Series 5—News H—Camouflage 13:05 5—News, weather 13:3" 4-13—World Series 5—As The World Turns (—Make a Face t:0i) 4-13—World Series 5—Password 9—Duy In Court 1:30 4-13—World Series 5—House Party B—Topper 2:00 4—Young Dr. Malon* B-13—Millionaire 9—Number Please 2:30 4—Award Theater B-13—Verdict I* tour* 0—Seven Keys 8:00 4—Make Room For Daddy b-13—Brighter Day 9—Queen For A Day 3:15 6-13—Secret Storm 3:30 4—Here'* Bollywood 6-13—Edgt of Night 9—Who do you TrustT 4:00 4:00 4—Kukla and Olll* 5 —Early Show, "Straight From The Shoulder" 0—American Banstand 13—News 4:05 —Mr. Magoe 4:10 13—Weather 4:15 4—Picture of tt.f Day, "Mr. Mottoa' Last Warning'* [3 —Cartoons 4:30 4—Picture of the Day S—Early Show B—Deputy Dauc 13—Cartoons 4:45 9—Rocky and Friends •:ot 4—Picture of the Day S—£urly Show 9—Popeye 13—Quick Draw McGraw 5:3« 4—Highway Patrol 5—Early Show 9— Quick Draw jIcGraw 13—Film 1:45 13—Sport* With Dev N*lio« 1C—Buslne** New* 5—Sports, Harold Mack 13—Weather with Gordon Jump 11:00 4—News ft—News with Harold Itaet 9—Man From Cochlse 13—New* with Don Harrtioa 'o—Weather with Johnny Y*te» 3-13 —New* with Douila* Edward* • :30 4—Wagon Train 5-13—Alvln 9—Steve Allen 7:00 . 4—Wagon Train S—Talent Roundup 9—Steve Allen 13—Donna Reed 3:30 4—Joey Bishop B-13—Checkmate B—Top Cat 8:00 4—F-;rry Como 5-13—Chsckmate B—Hawaiian Ey» 8::'0 4—Perry Como 5—Mrs. O.

The Senate Internal Security subcommittee, looking into the Danish diplomat's mysterious death two years ago, challenged the verdict of suicide. "There are too many solid arguments against suicide," the subcommittee said, "too many unanswered questions, too many serious reasons for suspecting Soviet motivation and the possibility of Soviet implication." In New York, a police spokesman said "the case is still open as far as we're concerned," ETHEL MERMAN Ethel Wows Biltmore Crowds By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-TV Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - The week's work: A girl named Ethel Merman made her Los Angeles debut at the Biltrnore theater this week. She's a hit! Miss Merman, who sings loudly with feet planted apart, has heretofore limited her stage stands to Manhattan. Now she is touring the provinces in "Gypsy," and she could probably continue as long as her energy holds out. As the stage mother to end all stage mothers (not a bad idea), Merman gave the first-night audience something to shout about. Jazz came down the river at the second annual Dixieland at Disneyland. And what a treat for eye and ear! Crowds lined the Frontierland River front to watch such bands as Maty Matlock's and the Firehouse 5 Plus 2 float by on rafts and keel boats, playing as if jazz had just been discovered. Then Louis Armstrong and Kid Ory came by on a sentimental voyage, playing together for the first time since their start in music. Also in the week's news: Production code gives seal of approval to "Lolita"; Dalton Trumbo to write script on "Hawaii". Preview: "Bridge to The Sun" is an arresting study of a West- East romance caught amid the conflict of nations. A sort of reverse Madame Butterfly, the real- life story portrays Carroll Baker as a Tennessee girl who weds James Shigeta, a Japanese diplomat. They are faced by hate from countrymen on both sides after Pearl Harbor and suffer through the war after deportation to Japan. Both stars play their roles with convincing intensity. The film somehow misses greatness, perhaps because it tries to cover too much ground and too much history. riet." The series starts its 10th season on television. 6:30 Channel !» — "Bugs Bunny."

"Sounds Of 60s" Had Little To Say By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP TV-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP)-"The Sound of the 60s," Monday night's NBC special program, started out promisingly. It gave us an imaginative sample of the noises j wound up with the great Mahalia Jackson singing "Bless This House." It was obviously a carefully prepared, well produced and expensive program which held one'i attention in spite of its preoccu- which symbolize our time: the pation with well worn themes. It roar of a missile leaving the launching pad, the clank of a production line, the chatter of a riveting machine. But when the program got around to commentary, with sen is the first of a series of programs by one sponsor—Westinghouse — which will appear irregularly at a rate of one or two a month on all three networks, an which will range from document- timent or humor or satire, about | aries and public service ihows to Red Sanction For Syria * BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Radio Damascus announced Monday Communist Poland has recognized the new Syrian regime. Readying Troops For The Congo LONDON (AP)-The Irish Republic is readying a new battalion of troops for service in the Congo with U.N. forces. It will relieve the 1st Infantry Group and the 35th Battalion, which figured in the recent bitter fighting at Elisabethville and Ja- dotville, Katanga. Informants said the new battalion would include a number of troops who have already done Congo service and volunteered for a new tour of duty. our decade, it quickly ran out of originality or steam. It really found little to say. First the program kidded the < do-it-yourself fad and the home j handyman. Of course, everything' he touched fell to pieces. Even • Art Carney playing the hapless; amateur cabinet maker and elec-1 :rician failed to invest that sketch with much. For spice, the program fell back j —as television always does in a j pinch — upon itself and Madison j Avenue. It kidded TV commer-' cials. A mixed chorus sang a medley of the most familiar commercial jingles, ranging from cigarettes to hair oil. Then a comedy team of four satirized the commercials by using well known soap and shampoo sales pitches in a sketch about selling communism to Russians. Finally, Dore Schary, producer of the program, gave a mildly humorous little lecture on communications, noting how TV invariably solves all its plot problems by firing a pistol. Woven between the sketches and musical interludes was a serious commentary on American life by John Daly. The program variety and drama. Ottawa Herald 106-101 8.
