OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Friday, October 20, 1961 Large Grey Area Television Log Channel 4, NBC Friday The governor of Kansas spoke out sharply recently against the growing centralization of government in Washington. He may have overstated his case when he said that if the trend continues all the governor of a state will have left to do is cut ribbons and crown queens. We have never noticed Governor John Anderson objecting to crowning a queen. However, you must admit that he has a point. The trend toward centralization has gained speed with our stepped-up ways of travel and communication. Where it once took General George Washington many days to reach the new capital on horseback, President Kennedy commutes the same distance by helicopter in a matter of minutes. This change applies not only in the state-to-nation relationship but in lesser forms of government. We see it on the This And That by jph township-county levels, between school districts, drainage districts or between counties and the state governments. While some may say Governor Anderson's feeling are typically Republican, in truth the resistance to centralization on all levels crosses party lines. The arguments for and against centralization of government, whether on the national level or any other, are endless. What then is the yardstick? It could be that those problems too big to be handled locally belong to the nation. One example of this would be flood control. It could also be that those problems close to the people should be kept on the local levels. Schools and education might be an example of this. We all must admit this problem is neither black nor white. The grey area is large. On The Streets Of Lahore most LAHORE — This city is outside of the camel zone and the last of the ceremonial elephants departed with the maharajahs. Outside of them a fascinating sampling of of the things that walk on four legs is to be encountered almost anywhere on its streets. Teams of great gray bullocks make their elaborate way along, pulling carts consisting of crude wood platforms mounted on pairs of rubber tired wheels from old trucks. There are lath- thin dogs and leaner cats. Pony carts each carrying from one to six passengers trot past by the hundreds. There are water buffalo, singly, in pairs, and by herds with their loin-clothed tender not infrequently staggering along in the rear with a new-born calf in his arms. A herd of sheep may slowly make its way through the wheeled traffic, going in the wrong direction on a one-way itreet. Cattle Anywhere Humped Indian cattle show up anywhere, some chaperoned, and some seeming to be having just a leisurely look around town. A calf or two may pause at a busy intersection for a survey as impervious to the cars around them as the traffic policeman is to them. Goats^.frisk v ^bout where they choose. Detachments on tiny donkeys show up anywhere. The bipeds are even more varied than the four- legged things on the streets of Lahore, and even the word street is misleading because here they are so utterly different from the streets at home. Here, away from the Mall and the parkways, * street is a narrow strip of badly-worn paving with wide expanses of beaten earth on either tide. Irregulary lining them are mostly tumbledown buildings with primitive shops on their ground floors, tenements overhead, and debris- strewn vacant lots between. Glow in the Dark There are no gutters, no curbings, no sidewalks. There are, by and large, no storm or sani- To Your Good Health tary sewers, and no garbage collections. There may be an occasional tree, and there may not. At night there is an infrequent 100-watt street light, an illuminated shop window, or the glow of a sweet-corn seller's fire to break the darkness, but that is all. On such streets much of the life of Lahore is lived, day and night. At dusk by the hundreds the poor bring their beds — simple frames with cane laticed across them — from the slums, place them side by side at the edge of the road and settle down on them for the night. From dawn life pulsates in the streets. Workmen whose job it is to keep old shoes, utensils, clothes, and bicycles from falling apart settle down to their toil. Tea - sellers appear. Scrawny men with only cloths around their middles begin digging new holes in streets rather than filling old one. Women with babies in their arms and heavy bundles balanced on their heads pass along. Pots of Rice Restaurants, which consist of no more than two steaming pots of rice or stew around which the patrons squat eating with their fingers, open for business. Sweetmeat and fruit sellers pass shouting their stocks. Old men rise from their beds and 'squat endlessly in the earnest shade. Shutters are removed from shops selling cigarettes and betel nuts which redden the teeth and have a mild narcotic effect on those who chew them. Beggars take their stations. Veiled women make their nunlike way through the hubbub. Children wearing little or nothing play in the dirt. Men with hennaed hair and beards — not from vanity but because henna is supposed to make for coolness — are around in considerable numbers. Small merchants spread their wares on the earth. If there is any sort of a pool of water women will be washing clothes in it and spreading their laundry out on the ground to dry. Alert young students push through on their way to classes. Hordes make their way through the confusion with no apparent destination. Such is life on the streets of Lahore. •too 4—Picture of the Day 5—Early Show 9—Popeye 13—Huckleberry Hound 5:30 4—Highway Patrol 5—Early Show *—Popeye 13—Film 1:40 13—Sports with DeT Nelson 8:50 13—Business News 5:55 B—Sports 13—Weather with Gordon Jump «:00 4-5-13—News 9—Man From Cochlse 8:10 4—Sports 6—Weather with Johnny Yates 8:15 4—News, Huntley-Brlnkley 5-13—News with Douglas Edwards 8:30 4—Sea Hunt 5-13—Rawhide B—Margie 7:00 4—National Velvet 5-13—Rawhide 9—Hathaways 1:30 4—Hallmark Hall of Fame 5-13—Route 66 9—Flintstones 4:00 4—Special 5-13—Route 68 9—77 Sunset Strip 8:30 4—Special 5-13—Father of the Bride 9—77 Sunset Strip 9:00 4—Hallmark Hall of Fame 5—Third Man 9—Targer-Corruptors 13—Twilight Zone B:30 4—Dangerous Robin 5—Eye Witness 9—Target Corrupotrs 13—Eye Witness 10:'IU 4-5-U-13—News 10:10 4-5-Weather 10:15 4—Jack P.iar 5—Studio Five, "The Cain Mutiny" 9—Peter Gunn 13—Weather 10:20 13—Sports 10:30 4—Jack Paar 5—Studio Five 9—Peter Gunn 13—Naked City 10:45 9—Big Show, "The Barefoot Contessa" U:0fl 4—Jack Pa»r 5—Studio Five 9—Impact Theater 11:30 4—Jack Paar 5—Studio Five 9-13—Impact Theater, "Life Begins at 8:30" 12:00 Midnight 4—Reporter's Scratch Pad 9—Unity Dally Word 12:20 13—Late Show, "Street of Chance" Saturday Get Rid Of The Cause By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER More and more people are recognizing that "heart trouble" is a mighty broad term. This is gratifying. People are becoming so much better informed on health problems than they were a generation ago, or even a few years ago. One result is that my readers are asking much more specific questions, like this one: "Dear Doctor: What is the difference between auricular fibrillation and premature contractions of the heart? Is there a cure?—Mrs. F.R." Auricular fibrillation (fibrillation can be described as a light, rapid quivering instead of a solid, concerted beat) is what we call "an irregular irregularity." The auricles (up- Dr. Molner per chambers of the heart) receive the impulse to beat at an irregular pace. The ventricles (lower chambers) receive their impulses at a different rate, also irregular. Control of auricular fibrillation is the goal- control, because of the difficulty in finding a cure for the basic problem. Drugs such as digitalis or quinidine are frequently used for this. Premature contractions, on the other hand are an occasional irregularity in which the auricle (or more likely the ventricle) receives an off-rhythm impulse to beat. Premature contractions are usually caused by some toxic condition, such as resulting from excess coffee or tobacco; certain nervous states; or by the presence of infection. The premature contractions can be eliminated (and cured) by getting rid of the cause. Only occasionally does this irregularity require drug treatment, other than those used to combat the underlying infection, nervous condition, or other cause. "Dear Dr. Molner I would like information on the pills doctorw prescribe for birth-control. I have some reservations about taking them, but family physician suggested them because of my irregularity.—Mrs. P.G." Such medication is used with good effect in certain menstrual irregularities. It has also been used (because of its "rebound effect,") in encouraging pregnancy. As to its use for contraceptive purposes, I have heard mixed reports. Since considerable study is still in progress, I prefer to wait until we hear the results before I try to arrive at any conclusions. I see no reason why you should not follow your doctor's advice. "Dear Dr. Molner: What is normal blood sugar level in a man about 70 years old? He has been diabetic for several years, but at present has realized a drop in count to 85. Is this low count dangerous? Also, in the case of albumin, is the patient allowed meat and eggs in the diet?— M,E." A blood sugar value of less than 120 before breakfast is considered normal. Hence at 85 I would consider this man's case as being in excellent control. (Pills are most likely to be useful among diabetics 50 years of age and over.) As to albumin, the loss (via urine) has to be replaced because protein is necessary in maintaining the tissues. I would say that therefore an egg a day and an average serving of meat is quite allowable. If your doctor has reasons, unknown to me, for thinking otherwise, follow his instructions. Prayer For Today As therefore ye received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and builded up in him, and established in your faith. (Colos- sians 2:6-7 ASV.) PRAYER: Our Father, we thank Thee for Christ, who is the author and finisher of our faith. Grant that we may continually abide in Him and He in us, and so strengthen our faith. In His name. Amen.

Danny Would Quit While He's Ahead By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP TV-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Danny Thomas, who two months ago was making noises about retiring his TV series after this season, aounced merrily into town for a couple of days. The foreseeable end of "The Danny Thomas Show" was not on his list of favorite subjects. 'All I've ever said was that 1 wanted to quit on top," he explained. "I wanted to quit while the public and the sponsors still liked us." Apparently the public still likes Danny's weekly entertainment effort, for the program has continued in its usual top-10 position among the popularity ratings. Danny keeps moving to greater eminence as a sort of entrepeneur of network comedy shows. He has an interest—financial as well as supervisory—in "The Andy Griffith Show," "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "The Joey Bishop Show." Currently he and his partner, Sheldon Leonard, are busily plannig two more series for next season, one a situation comedy called "I and Claudie," and another, "My 15 Blocks," about the family life of a patrolman. Thomas i» particularly interested in the patrotman series, which he hopes will develop "a degree of respect for police officers from the young teens." Meanwhile, he's pleased with the progress being made by Joey Bishop. "You've got to give him a little time to learn to be an actor, to smile with his eyes," he explained. "Remember, Joey has been a monologist all his profes- sional life, and his style is to be stoic, never to smile at his jokes. But he's got a high likability quotient and he'll make it."

Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO David Price, of near Williamsburg, was recovering from injuries which he received when he was run over by a farm implement while working in the field. The Ottawa Herald straw vote in Franklin County indicated a trend for Alf Landon for president by a margin of about 2 to 1. Tom Roben of near Homewood sent two carloads of fat Hereford cattle to the American Royal Lovestock and Horse Show. 50 YEARS AGO David Hodges, 212 E. 1st, was seriously ill, but was improved. A team tied to W. C. Woodburn's barber pole near the basement entrance of the Dunn Store building became frightened and ran, almost taking the barber pole with them. Peter Lynes, 120 Walnut, was laid up at his home with a very sore foot. He stepped on a rusty nail that was protruding from a board in bis yard. Once a newipaperboy—now a news maker. Mercury Astronaut Grissom reached an altitude of 118 miles and a speed of 5,310 miles an hour as America's second man in space. A former newspaper carrier himself, Astronaut Grissom joins in the October salute to America's half-million news- paperboys. "You've a lot to be proud of, young man! "You bring us the news of the world—and these days that even includes outer space! "You're learning the importance of responsibility. You're learning the value of money earned and money saved for the future. It's no surprise that thousands of carriers regularly put some of their weekly earnings into U.S. Savings Stamps and Bonds. Boys and Bonds have been growing up together for a long time now. Peoples National Bank of Ottawa First National Bank of Ottawa Kansas State Bank of Ottawa
