OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Saturday, October 21 y 1961 A New Adventure The Herald's publisher, Guy Snedaker, retired today ending a career of 38 years with this newspaper. In a party held in his honor, many kind words were said of his loyalty and service. Too, as is often the case, there were many pleasant remarks that were left unsaid. Recalled were the early days of The Herald, early that is to many of us. There was the story of the errant snuff box that set off the hay fever of the late Ralph Harris, of the quips in the column of Ellis Clark who mystified his readers with his references to the "blond bookkeeper" who later was to become the Herald's publisher. The most significant fact about the retirement of Guy Snedaker is his own at- This And That by jph titude toward the time which is often looked upon with dread. In his words, "I can't see why people dread the thought of retirement. It's all in the way you look at it. You can sit and rot, or you can look on it as a new adventure in life." And he went on to tell us that the day of retirement might be compared to the day you become 21, the day you get married, the day your first child is born. "Why dread it," he tells us. "Retirement opens up a whole world. It's a challenge that I'm looking forward to." Such an outlook is wonderful. It is one that should cause us all to stop and think. It is also one that results from a useful life spent in doing a job well. We wish him the best in his new adventure. Man's Boss In Pakistan JPH LAHORE — What is the position of the women of Pakistan? Not too bad if they stick to their position which is to do exactly what their men tell them and to keep out of their mens way. Outside of that basic rule, however, the women of Pakistan cannot be dismissed with a gen eralization. At o n e extreme is t h f barefoot, obviously pregnant stringy haired women we happened to notice this after noon clad in a dirty black robe which covered all of her but her face. She darted out into traffic, knelt to scoop some animal dung on a scrap of sheet metal, and got out of the roadway barely in time to avoid being run down by a car. Precious Fuel She'll take it home — and home may be no more than a leanto propped against an old wall. She will pat it into a pancake, dry it in the sun, and use it as fuel to prepare her family's one hot dish of the day. Or perhaps even of the week. At the other extreme are the wives of high government officials and the industrialists. They live the lives of the rich anywhere. They may wear saris at home but you may be sure that in their wardrobes they have Paris models to display themselves in when^theyv^re in Hongkong or Beirut. Next under these perhaps are the clubwomen who are forever visiting gardens, being lectured to, arranging charities, petitioning officials, and telling their indigent sisters how to bear their young in a seemingly way. They are constantly pictured in the papers at their receptions and such. And those pictures reveal what seems an interesting fact. There must be something about To Your Good Health club work the world around that molds women into the same generous physical lines. Hard Labor There are housewives in Pakistan whose only labor-saving device is a servant for a very few dollars a month, if they can afford one. There are working women, too, but only at hard labor in the fields and factory. Except for a few nurses and teachers, the white collar girl is unknown. In the half dozen newspaper offices with which we have become familiar, there has not been a single female employe. Among the thousands of students there are in the three univerities at Lahore there are more then a few girls. Eager, inquisitive, conscientious they are and no doubt they will take leadership in emancipating women in this country in years to come. But there are no beatniks among them, nor male beatnicks either. If there were they would not be taken as odd but only as so many more indistinguishable members of the miserable poor. To foreign eyes, most conspicuous among the women of Pakistan are those concealed behind robes and veils. Of these there are two sorts, but they are not divided between the black veils which cover the head with no opening whatsoever and the white veils which have a square of lace latticework over the eyes. The separation of the veiled women is between the subservient and the subtle. The former are the wives of strict Muslims who believe that no other man's eye shall see their women's faces. The latter appreciate that a veil wards off the skin-hardening effect of the tropical sun. It also makes a woman seem more mysterious, and hence desirable. (As a footnote to the women of Pakistan, polygamy is still approved by both religious and civil law, but it is on the wane. The oncoming Pakistani are of the opinion that there are many more enjoyable ways of spending money than on maintaining a second or a third wife.)

JOSEPH G. MOLNER Today's column, I confess, will apply to only a small proportion of readers. But the inquiring letter is from a mother who is grieving, and punishing herself for something she thinks she did, when in fact she didrii. do anything wrong. "Dear Doctor: I had a baby and it was not sick a day. The pediatrician said it was fine. When the baby was just a few weeks old I let the coffee boil over tvhile I was in the cellar washing clothes. We have natural gas, and when the coffee boiled over it extinguished the flame. "I read that natural gas would make you sick but would not kill you. The baby seemed all right so I didn't tell anyone. This happened on Thursday. On Saturday I found the baby unconscious in bed. We rushed it to the hosital and it was dead. "The doctor said it looked to him as if the lungs were full of milk, but if I had had the baby on its stomach, it should have run out. The autopsy said it was interstitial pneumonia. "Now I am afraid to have another baby. "Could the gas have done it? But wouldn't the baby have been sick? And if it had pneumonia, wouldn't it have had a fever or some sign of being sick? Please answer.—Stupid Mother." I wish wholeheartedly that this mother would forget forever that she signed the letter "Stupid Mother," because she isn't stupid. She didn't do anything wrong. Her baby, poor little morsel of humanity, just wasn't destined to live. The most dangerous time through which a baby must live is the first year. Nature provides babies with temporary immunity from some few diseases, but in general the infants have to run the risk of a lot of germs, survive them, and thereafter have some protection against them. Despite all we can do, a certain percentage of babies happen to be quite sensitive to this germ or that. Nobody can predict which. The most frequent cause of the death of young babies is contact with a germ (not gas) that causes some form of pneumonia. The little lungs fail under the assault of the germ. Such babies sometimes have, at first, what show that sign. The pneumonia comes on so sud- seems to be a "mild cold." Some don't even denly that nobody has any advance warning at all This, in fact, is the real cause of deaths that are incorrectly reported as "being smothered by a blanket." It's the first attack of a germ, not "smothering." Let's erase the signature, "Stupid Mother." She was a victim of the sort of accident that overtakes some innocent babies. Heartache, yes, but nobody's fault. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Ted Van Rheen sold the Royal Cafe to R. H. Kelley. A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Harry E. Dodd, 513 N. Poplar. The baby was named Donna Rae. A. E. Willis of Willis Nurseries, suffered an eye injury when struck in the face by a tree branch 50 YEARS AGO Among items that had Ottawans worried about the high cost of living was the broom. Broomcorn market prices remained at a high level and Ottawans were paying as much as 50 cents for first quality brooms. C. E. Andrews fell in the elevator shaft of the Hewitt-Evans Fruit Company where he was em ployed as a salesman, and suffered bruises. District Elder A. Neal of Clay Center was here to hold the quarterly meeting of the Free Methodist Church. Prayer For Today Beloved, build up yourselves on your most holy faith and pray in the holy Spirit, so keeping yourselves within the love of God and waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that ends in eternal life. (Jude 20-21. Moffatt.) PRAYER 0 God, help us by Thy grace to become living members of Christ's believing praying, loving church, which waits for her Lord's final victory. In the Savior's name we pray, Amen.

Judd, R-Minn., called president Kennedy "a weak and indecisive executive" in a speech Thursday and said the President "won't let others mak« decisions and he won't make them himself." "I say in dismay that he has been a great deal weaker than I thought he would be," Judd said. He said Kenedy and his administration produce "great papers" but fail to follow through in terms of action. Addressing a meeting of Minnesota Republican district chiefs, Judd said the administration bases its actions on vote-getting qualities. He said Kennedy "forgets h« is President rather than a candidate for the job." JFK Building His Muscles WASHINGTON (AP)-President Kennedy has begun a muscle building program to get back in shape for golf and other strenuous activities he has avoided since straining his back last May. White House officials said that Dr. Hans Kraus of New York spent 15 minutes Thursday with Kennedy and will work with him three times a week. The treatment is principally exercises to be taken under the doctor's supervision. Officials said the President'* back is in good condition now but some muscle strengthening is considered advisable. •Ottawa Herald 106-108 8. Main Published dally except Sunday ant Holidays.
