OTTAWA HERALD Ten Thursday, October 12, 1961 -* £ Editorials Vote Discrimination Four Kansas newspapermen have filed action in the U.S. Supreme Court which could shake up the political structure of Kansas. The quartet seeks to join in a similar case filed in Tennessee and appealed to to the high court. In a nutshell, the Kansans claim Congressional Districts and state Legislative Districts deprive many persons of equal voting rights. In a 57-page brief filed with the Supreme Court, the "history of malappor- tionment in Kansas" is detailed. It is pointed out the last re-apportionment of the Kansas Senate was in 1947 and at that time only 18 of the 40 Senate seats were apportioned fairly on a basis of population. Since that time there has been "silent gerrymander by inaction." "Gross discrimination in favor of rural areas'' is found in the lower house of the Legislature. The House is limited to 125 seats. The Kansas Constitution says each county shall have at least one representative. Thus, only 20 seats are available for distribution to the more populous counties. One example cited is that of Wallace County compared to Sedgwick County. The vote of a Wallace County citizen is 35 times more influential than that of a person in Sedgwick County. Barton Sounty has two seats in the House. One member represents 16,184 people/ on an average. The average in Sedgwick County with five seats is 68,646 persons. The conclusion drawn by this appeal is that the Kansas Constitution is in violation of 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution. It is seldom safe to predict the outcome of a court case. In this particular one, however, speculation as to what will happen if the Supreme Court returns a favorable decision could be far-reaching. For example, it might be argued that all acts passed by an illegally apportioned legislature are void. This could cause chaos. Or if equitable apportionment is forced by the courts, machinery to do so would have to be set up by the Legislature. Thus certain members would be working themselves out of their seats in the Legislature. Probably most important, however, would be the change in control of the Legislature. Where the rural representatives now have the majority of legislators elected by the minority of voters, the balance of power could shift sharply to the urban areas. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Ottawa High School students had quite a morn- in:;. They aw a travel film, narrated by Lowell Thomas, and had a fire drill all within an hour. Mrs. W. II. Lowe, 318 W. 2nd, fell on the basement stair ate her home and suffered a head injury- Rule Seymour, Ottawa University student, got a bump on the head, and a severe headache when he was kicked by a mule at the city feed yard sale. 50 YEARS AGO Mrs. Cornelia Shiras, Miss Eleanor Shiras, Miss Nora Shomo and Masters Jack and Sidney Harris took a hike out on West 7th Street and cooked and ate supper in the woods near the "beach." Ottawa police were investigating reports of some Ottawans shooting squirrels in town, contrary to city ordinance. A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. William H. Bruce, of North Hickory.

Television Log Channel 4, NBC Thursday This And That by jph Forty Beggars Per Block JPH KARACHI — There is a nice, new American embassy here, just a block from the Me- tropole Hotel. It is 974 miles from the capital of Pakistan which has been moved to Rawalpindi, up north. The maximum here yesterday was 88, the minimum 81, and the humidity 83 per cent. The full sugar ration has been restored now that a shipload has come in from Cuba. There were 292 murders reported in the month of July, compared to 277 the year before. Horsemeat hamburgers are listed daily on the diningroom menu, but on Tuesdays and Wednesdays no meat of any land may be served. Printers are paid $65 a month., and editors perhaps twice as much. The iMerV'tno'ugh, in some mysterious way, show up with cars and chauffeurs. For a fast shave or a haircut sit down beside the kneeling barber on his mat at the edge of the sidewalk. On the principal business Street beggars average no more than 40 to the block. Home Town Girl The sole local radio station operates only seven hours a day. There is no TV but Japan has promised to provide a station next year. Triumphantly back is a home town girl who has made good. Princess Amina. "The Worlds Greatest Bel- To Your Good Health ly Dancer," she is advertised as having appeared before Ex-King Farouk, King Hussian, and the Queen of England. But three dead bodies were picked up on the streets last night. Bank guards carry not pistols but loaded rifles. Recently the editor of one of the leading papers was removed by the government on the charge he was in the pay of an unnamed foreign power. Rumors vary as to whether the unnamed government was Russia or China. Beef, usually, is a euphemism for water buffalo. Either the water from the taps is safe to drink, or we have cast iron kidneys. A boy trots in when you awaken every morning with a pot of tea instead of the coffee you ordered. He trots out again with your shoes to polish them. The hotel's pet monkey bites only female guests. Once a Week Opium smugglers are arrested daily, and smug- lers of gold at least once a week. Printing and publishing, surprisingly, supplies the third largest employer. And now and then forged passports are included among the products. Even at the leading hotel it costs only 40 cents to have a suit pressed. Next to British and Americans, Japanese seem most numerous among the visiting businessmen. Some government departments take as much as two years in paying their bills. On the streets women are conspicuous by their absence. Incidentally, a woman here who begets nothing but daughters is considered to have let down her hus band and the nation. 5:011 4—Picture of the Day 5—Early Show 9—Popeye 13—Comment u:;i(l 4—Hignv.

"Go West Young Lady' 1 Such Marriages Are Risky By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: Recently you wrote a column concerning the marriage of first' cousins. "At that time I had no problems, but since then my daughter and my cousin's son have fallen in love and want to get married. Could you give me your advice on this? "They are sort of 'doubled,' as the boy's grandfather and my mother are sister and brother, and the boy's grandmother and my father are half-sister and half-brother. "Is there any danger of their children having deformities? Please give me a straight forward answer.—Mrs. A.W.B." • . I shall give you the plainest Dr. Atolner answer I can. It will not be yes - or • no answer because that is impossible. Every child possesses a mixture of characteristics — some from the mother, some from the father. Some characteristics skip generations, so grandparents are important, too. These characteristics are transmitted by genes — tinv but powerful "chemical paterns." There are dominant genes, and recessive genes. The dominant ones tend to assert themselves. The recessive genes tend not to reproduce themselves unless they happen to appear on both sides of the family. This seems to be Nature's way of protecting its creatures. If a fault in the body comes from a dominant gene, and this same dominant gene appears on both sides of the family, the fault becomes stronger and the tendency is for that branch of the family to die out — victim of this reinforced fault. ~~ But with recessive genes, where they represent faults, the fault — rather than the family- tends to die out. Unless, that is, the fault is 5; present on both sides, in which case the.reces- K. sive gene tends to continue. **"• <g£ I have in mind the case of a couple (cousins) fl£ who both had an eye defect. They could see, but S£ their eyes were faulty, and the fault was the *••> same in both of them. Their sons, whom I had occasion to see, are Channel 5-13, CBS 3:00 4—-Make room tor Daddy 0-1!:—Brighter Day y—Queen foi a Day 3:15 5-13—Secret Storm »:30 4—Here's Hollywood 5-13—"Edge of Night" "-Whr do you Trust? 4: HO 4—Kukla and Ollle 5—Early Show "Black Arrow" 9—American Bandstand 13—News 4: (15 4—Mr. Magoo 1:10 13—Weather 4:1.-, 4—Picture of the Day, "Bond of Fear" 13—Cartoons 4:3U 4—Picture of the Day 5—Early Show, 9—Deputy Davrg 13—Catroons 4: ir. 9—Rocky and Friends f.u-j 4—Picture of the Day 5—Early Show 9—Popeye 13—Huckleberry Hound 5:1)0 4—Highway Patrol 5—Early Show 9—Popey« 13—Film 1:40 13—Sport* wlto D»T Nelion 6:50 13—Bua.lnesi New* 5:55 5—Sport* 13—Weathei with Gordon Jump 6:00 4-5-13—Newa H—Man From Cochise «:10 4—Sports 5—Weather with Johnny Yates 6:15 4—News, Huntley-Brlnk'.ey 5-13—News with Douglas Edvards 6:30 4—Sea Hunt S-lii—Rawhide 9—Margie 7:80 4—National Velvet 5-13 -Rawhide 9—Hathaway!! 7:30 4—Detectives 5-13—Route 68 9—Fllntstones 9:00 4—Detectives 5-13—Route 89 9—77 Sunset Strip 9, ABC Friday virtually blind. The fault, in other words, rein forced itself in the children. It is true that good or strong qualities, as wel as weaknesses, may be reinforced. But this a gamble. Too often intermarriage or in-breed ing saps the sturdiness of the children. Nobody can say that such marriage will be disastrous to any children it produces, but wi can always say that it may be. In some states marriages of first cousins i prohibited by law; in other states there is no man-made law against it, but the persistent law; of Nature still prevail. I can see no tetter solution than to let tin young people know the facts. Faults of mino consequence, when reinforced from both side of the family, too often becomes serious in thi next generation. "Dear Dr. Molner: What do you think of young mothers who still diaper their babies at the age of three and even four years?—R.S." I think they're doing a frightful lot of needless washing because they haven't spent the necessary time to teach the little ones butter. What are ulcers? How should they be treated? and stay rid of them? For answers, read Dr. What can you do to help rid yourself of ulcers Molner's helpful new booklet! HOW TO HEAL PEPTIC ULCERS AND KEEP THEM HEALED.

Prayer For Today Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. (1 Timothy 6:6-?!) PRAYER: Gracious Father, grant us grateful hearts. Open our eyes for the great gain to be ours in godliness with contentment. Give us the divine compulsion to seek the spiritual blessings, which we need more than anything ele In Christ's name we pray. Amen.

But the rest of the TV audience, particularly those who have been hungering for some sharp wit and clever commentary, will make him their hero. Newhart's new weekly program, in its first outing on NBC Wednesday night, poked some subtle fun at the free enterprise system and organization men and then, even more daringly, went to work on the integration problem. Newhart's first sketch was based on the premise that local fire departments should be oper ated as a private business. He played, in a monologue, an office salesman of "Phil's Fires, Inc.,'" using all the business cliches in making lackadaisical arrangements for his company to respond to a call for help. Any resemblance to the average householder's problem in summoning a service man in an emergency was not coincidental. The second sketch had Newhart playing Tarzan after 40 years of living in his African jungle. Tarzan—and his frowsy, shrill-voiced Jane — complained bitterly about efforts of "the neighbors" to get them out of the neighborhood in a jungle-clearing project. It was a lively, funny intelligent show. One can only hope that Newhart, with a weekly show, can maintain his high standard of material and wit. i • 13—"Wee Willie Wlr.kle" Chico Marx Dead At 70 HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Leonard Vlarx, a tailor's son who wanted to be a businessman but instead became Chico of the Marx brothers comedy team, is dead at 70. Chico, oldest member of .the impossibly irreverent, brothers whose vaudeville and movie fans included low-brows and intellectuals alike, died of a heart ailment Wednesday. He had been ill for several months. Chico and brothers Groucho (Julius), Harpo (Arthur), Zeppo (Herbert) and Gummo (Milton) transformed low comedy into high art for three decades—with their special brand of winks, whistles and wisecracks. Their last movie was in 1849, entitled "Love Happy," and the cast included an obscure blonde actress, Marilyn Monroe, in her first film. Gummo and Zeppo entered private business years ago. Chico, who loved gambling, cards and golf, lived quietly in recent years. Only Groucho, 06, is still an active performer. Harpo recently regained some prominence with "Harpo Speaks," an autobiography. Ottawa Herald 106-106 s. Main PuBllsned dully except Sunday an* Holidays.
