OTTAWA HERALD Pase Four Editorials Wednesday, October 18, 1981 Day Of Significance Speaking to a small group the other night, Dr. A. B. Martin, president of Ottawa University, reminded us a little of the old woman who lived in the shoe. As yet he hasn't so many students he doesn't know what to do, but he is getting close. With more than 600 students this year, housing space is nearly filled and there is a critical shortage in dining facilities. Experts in the fields of higher education tell us about the "explosion" in college enrollments. Part of this is due to the "explosion" in this country's population. More still is due to the realization that a college education is becoming a must. In the East, higher education facilities are jammed. Across the land colleges of all sizes report mounting enrollments. Not only is this situation to get worse in the next few years, statistics indicate college expansion problems will extend over many years. To meet these growth problems, Ottawa University has employed a group of experts. For months now these experts have been making plans to help the university meet the challenge of the future. These plans will be unveiled Friday at a special convocation program. From the interest already generated it is apparent friends of the university from across the nation will participate in this event. Many Ottawans and residents of this immediate area also will be present when details of the University's future are announced. Friday is certain to be a day of great significance for this community. This And That by jph Things To See In Lahore JPH LAHORE—A significant event in terms of this eity's future has taken place. American Express has opened a travel bureau. It is doubtful that the confidence of the world-wide tourist guidance service has been misplaced. Lahore may be considerably off the main lines of travel. Its climate may be almost insufferable eight month? a year. It has no more than 200 hotel rooms that offer an approximation of western comforts, despite its \Vi million population. But i t does have sights worth at least two - star classification. And there are so many globe - trotters these days whose amibition is to get to strange places before t h e L Jones do. So before long there probably will be guide sellers, and camera-laden tourists saying "If this is Thursday this must be Lahore," clustered around the scenic attractions one now must seek out for oneself. 40 Acres and a Whim First of the list is the Garden of Shalamar which has nothing in common with Pale Hands I Loved, etc. It is 40 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds behind protective walls, created as a whim of a Shah Jehan, • contemporary of England's first Elizabeth. The Garden is terraced on descending levels. Against the background of old trees, lawns and flowers there are rows of long, narrow lagoons, criss-crossing one another. Lines of gently splashing fountains, there must be |4 thousands of them, rising from the center of eacn tifgooh. The scene is something out of the Arabian Nights. To Your Good Health Shalamar is only a beginning. There is the great, red brick pile of a medieval fortress whose first walls go back to Akbar the Great, with its marble pavilion, the audience hall with its walls rich with stone carvings, mosaics, murals and jewels, the elephant gate, and the various inner courtyards. Gardens and Garbage At the edge of Lahore there is the tomb of Jehangir with its vast, surrounding carefully landscaped grounds to remind one how strange it is that the Pakistani can lay out and maintain such lovely parks yet tolerate for generations a vacant patch of ground on a principal street as a garbage dump and refuse heap. It can be said of Jehangir's last resting place that few in history have had themselves buried more sumptuously. In the heart of Lahore is the old walled town whose streets make those of a casbah look tidy. Adjoining the fort is Badshali mosque, reputedly the largest in the world. Conspicuous on The Mall is the pink-plastered office of the Civil & Military Gazette, looking exactly as it must have when Kipling worked as a reporter on it. Turnips Upsidedown Then at every hand there are the neighborhood mosques with their white-washed domes, short spires, roof knobs that look like upside down turnips, and fanciful minarets. They seem almost like wedding cakes, created by a Pakistani chef who had let his imagination run wild. No few more accessible cities have become tourist centers on much less in the way of attractions than Lahore has to offer. But before Lahore cm command more than a footnote in the tourist guides, Signer Faletti will have to air condition some more of his rooms. HOMETOWN BOY - Jack Benny cheerfully interrupts rehearsal of his show in his home town of Waukegan, 111., to sign autographs for local youngsters at Jack Benny Junior High School where Benny's program for Sunday, Oct. 22, 8:30 p.m., Channels 5 and 13, will originate. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Wednesday 'Water Pills' Help Reducer By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: I am 30 pounds overweight and my doctor is giving me water pills because my lees and face swell so badly. "If I don't take these for a week I gain five or six pounds, but I am afraid if I take them too long they will become a habit. My doctor seems to think I'll be all right after I have lost more weight. What is your opinion?—Mrs. S.H." First, the doctor is quite right; the loss of some weight will do wonders. Second, let's talk about "wa-1 ter pills," which are one of thej fairly new, and certainly important, medicines. These drugs, called "diu-1 retics," force the body to rid j itself of excess water which under various conditions collects! in the tissues of the body. They are not habit - forming, any more than aspirin. They have an effect on the system— Dr. Molner getting rid of excess water. So Mrs. S. H. should listen to her doctor, not to her worries about taking the drugs too long. Several conditions can cause water to accumulate in the system — varicose veins, menstrual difficulty, some heart or kidney disorder. Since the old saying, "a pint's a pound, the world around," is roughly correct, a drug that will get rid of two to three quarts of extra fluid means that weight will decline by four to six pounds. This is "water weight," rather than "real weight." .^ust as prize fighters sometimes "dry out" to "make the weight" for a fight, so can the rest of us shed several pounds by drying out, whether by drugs or some other method. This doesn't mean we have really "reduced" — but if there is excess water in the system, it should be eliminated. Note that I said "excess water." We need and must have enough. When there is too much, it becomes a problem. If some real weight-reduction is accomplished along with the water-weight reduction, then health progress is being made. "Dear Dr. Molner: What can you tell me about cardiac insufficiency? Does an electrocardiogram show all the necessary facts?-Mrs. C.C.L." "Cardiac insufficiency" means that the heart is not working up to par. Causes: Maybe damaged valves ' ( *rom rheumatic fever or the like; maybe coronary artery disease; maybe from infectious or toxic (poisonous)causes. The cardiogram can be extremely useful, if only to indicate what isn't the trouble, but no, I cannot say that an electrocardiogram (or a series of them) will always show "all the necessary facts." It's just one of several methods of finding the facts. "Dear Dr. Molner: Is it unhealthful to drink softened water? We were under the impression that it is more healthful than hard water with the alkali, etc., until neighbors told us we were wrong in thinking this.—I.C.R." No, softened water is perfectly healthful, and the thing to do is to drink whichever kind you prefer, hard or soft. The only exception is that softened water often contains sodium rather than calcium — and sodium would be wrong for anyone on a low-salt diet. For others, there's no difference. Dr. Molner welcomes all reader mail, but regrets that due to the tremendous volume received daily, he is unable to answer individual letters. Dr Molner answers readers' questions in his column whenever possible. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO M. F. Smith, of northeast of Otawa, reported that some of the apple trees at his home were blooming. Ottawa High School, took the following students to Lawrence where they attended a conference at the journalism department at University of Kansas: Robert Blair, Joan Butler, Don Campbell, Dorothy Cates, Jane Geiger, Polly Gowans, Alice Hensiek, Arlene Montgomery, L o r e n Trout, Cleo Wallace, and Warren Weien. 50 YEARS AGO Electric wiring was being installed in the home of Dr. S. E. Price, at 803 Cedar. Mrs. E. T. Bird went to Kansas City to purchase stock for her millinery store for the fall trade. Fifty head of Poland China hogs from the Dietrich & Spaulding pens near Richmond were sold at auction at Forest Park pvailion. Prayer For Today They, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart. (Acts 2:46.) PRAYER- Father, of love, we thank Thee for the joy Thou givest us when we who love Thee gather for worship in Thy house of prayer. Draw near to all those who do not acknowledge Christ as their Savior. Hear our prayer offered in the name of Thine only Son, Jesus Christ. Amen. 1:00 4—Picture of the Day 5—.Early Show a—Popeye 13—Quick Draw McOraw 8:30 4—Highway Patrol 5—Early Show 9— Quick Draw McGraw 13—Kansas Panorama 5:45 13—Sports With Dev Nelsoo 6:80 13—Business News 6:U 5—Sports, Harold Mack 13—Weather with Gordon Jump «:UO 4—News ft—News with Harold Mack 9—Man From Cochlse 13—News with Don Harrison 8:10 5—Weather with Johnny Yates 11:16 »-13—News with Doug-las Edward* 6:30 4—Wagon Train 5-13—Alvin 9 —Steve Allen 7:00 4—Wagon Train S—Talent Roundup 9—Steve Allen 13—Donna Reed 1:30 4—Joey Bishop 8-13—Checkmate 9—Top Cat 8:00 4—Perry Como 5-13—Checkmate 9— Hawaiian Ey« 8:3", 4—Perry Como 5—Mrs. G.

Well, I watch a lot of TV, and if they really want some fresh ideas never seen on the tube, I've made a list they are perfectly free to take. A stirring, action-packed saga of the Civil War, with both brothers fighting on the same side. A suspense drama about a girl, all alone in a big house on a stormy night. She hears strange noises in the attack, and immediately leaves the house, gets in her car and drives to a police station. The time for ttv big showdown comes. The marshal and the gunslinger in the black hat start walking towards each other down the dusty, deserted main street. And the marshal drops before he can even get his hand on his six- shooter. The pretty housewife in the situation comedy spends all day baking the banana cream pie for that dinner with the boss and his wife. And at dinner they all sit down and eat the pie. The heroine in the daytime serial is sitting quietly in the living room when kindly Dr. John, the family physician, drops in and asks her how she feels. She smiles brightly and responds: "Just dandy, doc, and I don't have a problem in the world." Channel 9 — "Man From Cochise." A fellow who is out on >arole kills a judge.
