OTTAWA HERALD P"ap<? Four Editorials Thursday, October 19, 1961 Deadly Reminder Berlin is a long way off. So is Laos ... and Moscow. But Worden isn't. You can drive there on a pleasant Sunday afternoon in less than half an hour. It's only about 20 miles northwest of Ottawa. What has Worden to do with Berlin, or Laos or Moscow? Near that community, and leading off US56, is an unmarked blacktop road. It goes a couple blocks south, then makes a right-angle turn to the west. A short distance further on in the beautiful Kansas countryside is a parking spot, a high steel fence, a small shed several times larger than a phone booth. A sign tells you to keep out. If you draw up to the gate a guard will step out. He is armed. If you wave, he will wave back . . . and watch you until you leave. Inside the wire enclosure you can see pipes coming out of the ground, aerials and also a concrete ramp that disappears into the ground. This is an Atlas ICBM missile base. Beneath the ground in the midst of this beautiful setting is an 82-foot bullet capable of carrying a nuclear explosive more than 6,300 miles to hit a target within two miles of the spot where it is aimed. This base is one of nine which ring the Topeka area. All are tied together by telephones and other means of communications. In turn the area center is linked to a central states command post which is tied into the nation's capital. If this missile is fired, it will be in anger, in case of attack. While the missile is stored underground and you cannot see it, if you drive over to Worden, look at the high wire fence, the guard, the keep out sign, you will feel a little closer to those problems in faraway places such as Berlin, Laos, Moscow. This And That by jph Luncheon Ends With Meal LAHORE — We were bidden to luncheon Sunday by a local businessman at his home in Gulberg, the smart new section of town. The surprise was not in the differences but in the likeness to a small, Sunday lunch on the other side of th* world. His two-story home with two-car garage is of brick plastered over in white, on smart, simple, western lines. Walls surrounded his small yard and garden not for style but to keep out foraging water buffalo and passing pilferers. The living room is high- ceilinged with the ubiquitous whirling fan. There are tasteful, colored Pakistani prints on the walls and an oriental carpet over most of the concrete floor. The furniture is Danish modern. Low book shelves extend around most of the wall. Some sections are filled with various bric-a-brac that is more occidental than Oriental. The books on the other shelves are mostly paperbacks in English although there are a number of classics apparently in Urdu, the prevailing language here. There were nine men and three women in the group, with the guests arriving in, small cars simultaneously. Two of the. women"'wore Paris coiffures, saris, and European shoes. Our hostess had on a sheath, if that. is the word, that \vas closed at the neck, reached to her knees, and was slashed up the sides. Beneath she had on what could have been the bottom piece of cotton pajamas. Her gold braided slippers had turned up toes and her hair was braided half way down her back which is more in the local style. JPH Family Affair The men favored cotton trousers, To Your Good Health tail-out shirts, and slippers over bare feet. One man wore a coat but immediately on his arrival he made clcai this was a family affair by slipping off his shoes, taking a volume of an encyclopedia from a shelf, sitting down in the most comfortable chair, and immersing himself in the volume. The women immediately huddled themselves in the far corner and talked women business in soft enough voices not to interfere with the masculine conversation. The men couldn't have beer more cordial. Each with the exception of the encyclopedia reader, made it a point to drift up for an exchange of identifications and a chat. The general conversation, as everywhere, was politics, business, and the terrible things that confront the world. Iced fruit juices were sipped meanwhile. The butler announced lunch. He had a footman to help him and on a guess there were at least servants in the house. The meal was buffet. Fried chicken, of all things. Shish kabab. Mutton stew. A salad of onions and cucumbers. Doughy bread baked half an inch thick and a clockface wide. Saucers of various spices that our hostess cautioned we would find too hot. A chocolate pudding for dessert and a bowl of fresh fruit to follow. All ate standing up. Lunch, That's All Then back to the living room for coffee which proved to be Nescafe spooned out of a can put into delicate cups filled with boiling water from a large silver pot. Then no more than ten minutes of id'e conversation in which the women were not included. Then, on a signal too subtle for us to catch, every guest was up as though he was a puppet pulled by strings. In two minutes after the most perfunctory of goodbyes, all were out of the house and gone. In Pakistan when you are invited to lunch, that's an end to it. Spots In Eye No Bother By DR, JOSEPH G. MOLNER I frequently receive letters asking about "vitreous floaters" in the eye — those little spots (hat seem to drift around in the field of visioq>. Not exactly black spots, not exactly blank spots, but just tiny spots. They don't hurt. They don't itch. From the standpoint of feeling, they might as well not be there. And from the standpoint ofi vision, they don't matter! much either. They're just tiny little spots, often just a single one, and that's all. They aren't) big enough to interfere with ; seeing things, or even reading. All the same, we wonder what they are, and whether they'll get worse, and whether they are a sign that we are going blind (which we aren't) or ***• Mrolner that vision will be impaired. (It won't.) Take today's letter on the subject: "Dear Doctor: Please advise if there is any cure for 'vitreous floaters" in the eye. "All the great specialists of the "Middle West say there is no remedy.—E.N.P." I'll add that specialists of the North, East, West, and South agree. People who have this trouble — if it's really worth calling trouble — usually do a certain amount of logical experimenting, such as blinking the eyes, shifting them suddenly from side to side to see whether the spot or spots seem to move, or trying to focus the eyes on something to one side of the spots, etc. The deceitful little spots seem to have a habit of staying in the same position, more or less, despite how we shift the eyes. Sometimes they disappear. Sometimes we get interested in whatever we are looking at, and forget all about them. Until we happen to notice them again. Ah, well, that's us! That's people! These "floaters" are changes which occur in the vitreous (liquid interior) portion of the eye as we grow older. That is, they may or they may not. They are a nuisance if you worry about them; otherwise they don't amount to a hill of beans. There's one exception to what I've said: Oc- ^casionally — which means not very often — the "floaters may be related to some* ir-flammation in the eye, in which case treatment is necessary. But if that's the situation, then there will be some indication other than just the floaters, to •'indicate that the eye is inflamed. "You Can Stop Sinus Trouble!" is the title of my booklet explaining what sinus trouble really is, and encouraging sinus sufferers to do something about it. For a copy write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20c in coin to cover handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Sarah Jane Graham, Wellsville, was elected secretary of the freshman class at Baker University Mrs. M. F. Ward caught a five-pound bass at Ottawa Country Club Lake. The Otawa fire department was called to 1376 S. Cedar to put out a fire in a car belonging to Sam Kirby. Damage was estimated at ?3. 50 YEARS AGO Walter 0, Myers, of the city water and light department was injured in a runaway. Driving a horse hitched to a light wagon he stopped near 3rd and Willow to pick up a pedestrian and his horse became frightened at a barking dog and began to run. The horse ran to 3rd and Walnut where Myers was thrown out, landing on his face and both hands. He suffered cuts and bruises and both wrists were sprained. The front of the Star Theater was being given a coat of white paint Prayer For Today Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, (Ephesians 6:18. RSV.) PRAYER: Father, creator of our lives, strengthen our desire to commune with Thee.' Prepare our hearts for an encounter with Thee. Forgive us our sins, and deliver us from evil. Preserve our souls from death. For Jesus' sake. Amen.

(AP)— The burglary trial of former chorus j girl Lillian Reis ended with a hung jury Wednesday night after the panel was unable to reach a verdict on prosecution charges that she plotted a $478,000 theft, then used some of the money to purchase a nightclub. Judge Charles W. Staudenmeier dismissed the panel of five women and seven men after it had reported for the second time it was hopelessly deadlocked. The jury, which had heard more than 40 prosecution witnesses and 5 defense witnesses during the five- week trial, had deliberated 16VS hours since receiving the case late Tuesday. An unimpeachable source said that on the first ballot the vote was 6-6; then on the second ballot and at least 18 thereafter the vote was a steady 7 for conviction and 5 for acquittal. The source said that all five women were for convicting her in the Aug. 7. 1959, burglary at the home of coal magnate John B. Rich. Miss Reis, who was released in $15,000 bail, told a newsman she felt she should have been acquitted. This Evening's TV Highlights 6:M Channel I - "Huckleberry Hound."

Barrie Learning Hard Facts By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP TV-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Barrie Chase, an unknown dancer before she appeared two seasons ago as Fred Astaire's partner in a television special, is learning the cold hard facts of TV life. Barrie will make her first Astaire-less appearance on TV as the dancing star of an ABC variety special, "The Seasons of Youth," next Wednesday night. She came to New York for the assignment—but as recently as two days ago had met no onej connected with the program except the choreographer, and had no notion how her numbers fitted into the show. "I haven't an idea what it's all about," she confessed. "I'm rehearsing the dances. But that's about it, although I suppose that's all right—the only reason I wanted to do the show was because of Bob Fosse, the choreographer. He did those exciting dances in 'West Side Story.'
