This And That by jph Begging Is Big Business LAHORE — A reporter we've come to know dropped by our room for a chat. We plied him with tea — they don't care much for coffee here — and with questions a b o u t the character and customs of his country. About kidnap- ings — child • lifting, they call it — in particular. To a westerner there seems to be an astonishing lot of them. Perhaps that is why the newspapers give only cursory accounts of them under small headlines. The frequency of the headlines, however, had whetted our interest. Girl stolen from home. . . abducted in daylight. . . Three teenage girls stolen. . . . Gang had abducted 25. So the typical captions read. Not for Ransom "Oh yes," said our reporter friend indifferently, "we still have a few, but not nearly so many as there used to be." We mentioned there were no references to rwards offered or paid for safe return. "No," he replied, "here they do not kidnap for ransom but for keeps." Kidnaping in West Pakistan, it seems is a long- established business, like opium smuggling, say, which still hasn't been effectively stamped out. There is enough money in both of them, of course, to warrant the risks. Girls, sometimes from good families, and usually not more than 11 or 12 are ia.vor.ite victims. Sometimes the abductor may be 6nly v a v man who wants a wife and terrorizes the girl into accepting her new role. More frequently her destination is the red light district which still is maintained in most of the larger cities. The teen-aged youths are badly beaten at the outset to make them submissive, and they may be deliberately maimed. A few of them are turn- To Your Good Health ed into male prostitutes and the remainder end as slave*, for all practical purposes or beggars. If they aren't promptly located and rescued after they are seized, they never are. "The young married women," continued our informant as he accepted another cigarette and put hot milk and three spoons of sugar into a second cup of tea, "are sold as white slaves. They are spirited away through Iran and prob ably end at various places around the Persian gulf." Older women or those of meager physical attraction when they are abducted enjoy no such kind fate. They will have an arm or a leg deliberately fractured and left unset, or an eye gouged out. This makes them all the more effective earners when their garments have been reduced to rags and they have been turned out on the streets to beg. Begging Isn't Private So begging here is not a matter of private enterprise and individual initiative — or lack of it — but an organized business. A man who has a dozen beggars working for him lives pretty well. His working staff turn over their receipts to him as he makes his nightly rounds as a choice slightly preferable to being beaten to death. "We Pakistani are funny about beggars," went on the reporter as casually as though he had been talking about crop conditions. "We complain to the police that there are too many of them, but we really can't get along without them. A few months ago at Rawalpindi the streets were actually cleared of them, then petitons were circulated to permit them back." He got up to go. "By giving something to a beggar a man proves to himself that fortune has favored him. We Muslims have occasional ceremonies following which we fling handfuls of small coins on the street. If there were no beggars to snatch them up, the ceremony would be a failure " 8:00 4—Picture of the Day 6—Early Show 9—Popeye 13—Roy Roger* 8:30 4— Highway Patrol E—Early Show 9—Popeye 13—Comment 8:40 13—Sporti with Dey NeUoa 1:80 13—Bulneai Wew» 8:fi8 5—Sport* 13—Weather with Gordon Jump t:00 4—New* 8—News with Harold Uack 9—Huckleberry Hound 13—News with Don Harrlioa 6:10 4_Newa 6—Weather, with Johnny Tales 6:16 4—Huntley-Brlnkley Report 5-13—News with Douglas Edwards 8:30 4—Outlaws 6-13—Frontier Circus 9—Wyatt Earp 5—Move, "The Littlest Rebel" 13—Medicine 1961 7:00 4—Outlaws 5—Movie 9—Donna Reed 13—Medicine 1861 7:30 4—Dr Kildare 5-13—Bob Cummings 9—Real McCoys 8.-00 4—Dr Kildare 5-13—Investigators 9—My Three Sons 8:30 4—Hazel 5-13—Investigators 9—Jim Backus 9:00 4—Sing Along With Mitch 5-13—At the Source Si—Untochables 0:30 4—Sing Along With Mitch 5—Face the Community 9—Untouchables 13—Controversy 10:00 4-5-9-13—New* 10:10 •)•&—Weather 19:16 4 —Jack Paar 5—Five Star Theater, "All Through The Night" 9—Peter Qunn 13—Weather 10:20 13— Sports with DCT Nelson 10:30 4—Jack Paar 5—Five Star Theater 9—Peter Gunn 13—Kansas Alield 10:45 9—Big Show, Brooklyn" 'A Tree Grows In 11:00 4--Jack Paar 5—Five-Star Theatre 9—Big Show 3—Movie, "36 Hours to Kill" :SU 4—Jack Paar 5—Five-Star Theatre 9—Big Show. 13—Movietime U.S.A. 12: no 4—Reporter's Scratchpad 9—Unity Dally Word 13—Movie 2:10 6—Late Show, "Texas Rangers Ride Again." Some Carry Staph Germs By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: Please write about the 'staph germ.' My little grandson has had boils since birth. He has taken two bottles of medicine, and has had to have two of the boils opened, and this is painful. The doctor says the staph germ is in his system and he may never get over it»— Mrs. P.R." The staphylococcus germ to which you refer is "staphylococcus aureus," or "golden staph," so named because of * j the appearance of colonies of the germ when raised in labo- oratoiy cultures. There are many strains of the staph germ and they are found just about everywhere. Fortunately not all of them cause disease. But some do. Dr. When antibiotics first were used, they kept staph germs under control. But about five years ago we became aware that some strains had become "outlaws," able to withstand the effects of the antibiotics. The worst of these outlaws have been identified in the laboratories as Type SO-81. These germs, which tend to linger on the surfaces of the body, can not only cause skin diseases (boils in particular) but desperately serious systemic diseases, such as blood poisoning, if they get a chance. Curiously enough, these self-same germs can exist in the noses of people who aren't sick at all — and yet can be transmitted to someone else and start causing trouble. This means, mainly, trouble to the very young or very old, or to people who are already ill and do not have as much resistance to disease germs, or surgical patients for the same reason. In some groups of people, as many as 30 per cent have been found to be carrying the germ, but they are not ill themselves. As can be seen, the "carriers" arc important in this regard. The best general rule to control the mischief done by this germ is to practice scrupulous cleanliness When visiting sick persons, avoid touching them. Don't use their drinking glasses. Don't be a booh and say, "Why, I'm perfectly healthy — it wor't hurt for me to touch them or to use their glasses." Because, as a matter of fact, you may be a "carrier" of the germ. These facts have long since been strongly ap- parent to nurses, doctors, and others who come in contact with the ill. It pays to be fussy aboul washing hands or touching patients. Recently a new form of penicillin has been available It is called "Staphcillin," which seem: to be successful in attacking the "outlaw" strains of staph. It is available only for hospital use, which is a good idea, since it will keep it avail able for desperate cases and postpone the time when new "outlaws" will develop, able to with stand this drug. However, I'm a pessimist. Or maybe I shouh say that I'm not a Pollyanna who expects tha' some drug is going to give us a complete vie tory. I think we're going to have to keep on find ing new drugs, and modifications of drugs, be cause the germs, drat 'em, are going to keep on developing strains that can resist the new drugs It's the way of life, and the way of combat. W can't stand still. We have to keep on defendin] ourselves in new ways against new enemies.

MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Associated Press ti entitled e»- cluslvely to the use for publication of all the local news printed In the news, paper u wall as all AP news dispatch. By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-TV Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP)-The Senate was in a raucous mood. The senator from Old Blighty, Charles Laughton, was exchanging insults with the senator from Hyannis Port, Peter Lawford. These were in the script of "Advise and Consent." Sen. Guy Gillette began a speech comparing performing in the U.S. Senate and acting in movies; he has done both. Other senators, including Walter Pidgeon, Don Murray and Edward Andrews, arose to seek recognition from the chair. They were rapped down with cool authority by the vice president, Lew Ayres. I advanced to the chair to renew acquaintance with Ayres. "Yes, it's been a long time since I made a picture, quite a long time," he mused. The records show that his last was "Donovan's Brain," eight years ago. Never one to remain idle, he has done TV dramas, lecture tours with his films of the world's religions, plus a multitude of other activities. Lew made his film debut 40 years ago, but he still looks youthful enough to have just come out of surgery as Dr. Kildare. I asked him if he had seen the new TV version of the movie series he played successfully with Lionel Barrymore. "Yes, I've seen it and I think it's very good," he answered surprisingly. "The young man who slays Kildare (Richard Chamberlain) is a good actor; he's in line with the new school of underact- ing." "You know, we used to get away with murder in the old days. I mean the way we used to overact. I've been watching the old pictures on TV a great deal in the past year. It can be painful sometimes," he said. "Styles change, and actors have to change with them. I'm learning," he said. "Seasons Of Youth" Was Gay By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP TV-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP)-If you had an adroit hand with a TV dial Wednesday night you could hav« watched variety shows from after dinner coffee until the bedtime snack. The evening of song, dance and comedy started with ABC's Steve Allen show, followed by a brief hiahis until NBC's Perry Como opened for business, and then back to an ABC musical special. There were many gay moments in the special, "Seasons of Youth." On this frail theme wert hung the dancing of Barrie Chase and Bob Fosse, some sharp political satire by the "premise players," and the smartly-professional singing of Paul Anka and Jill Corey. Most delightful was Barrie Chase's dancing, but it was all engaging, easy-mannered show. In fact, it was a good evening and a nice change from a TV diet which lately has consisted largely of homicide and neurosis. Women of star calling still art finding the going rough in television. Last season network TV cut itself loose from Loretta Young, June Allyson and Barbara Stan- wyck, leaving only two feminine stars who luckily were tied into successful situation comedy series of the family type: Donna Reed and Harriet Nelson. This season, Marilyn Maxwell was the only woman star with a new series: "Bus Stop" on ABC. ^ow comes word from Hollywood hat the producers have dropped beir option on her acting serv- ces upon completion of the first 13 episodes.

Dr. Molner is always happy to hear from his readers, but he regrets that he cannot answer individual letters due to the great number received daily. Whenever possible he uses readers' questions in his column. Prayer For Today "When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the Lord: and my prayer came to thee, into thy holy temple." (John 2:7.

Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Bones that had been dug up in the work of deepening the Country Club lake, and believed to be those of an ancient animal, were not. A. C Carpenter, local geologist, identified them as horse bones. Horses killed in a livery stable fire in 1902 on East 2nd Street, were buried, Otta- wans recalled, in a ravine that later became part of the country club lake. Ottawans, like others over America, were interested in the news that Mrs. Wallis Simpson, a friend of the King of England, had been granted a divorce. Assistant Fire Chief Harry Gilliland was attending a fire school at University of Kansas. 50 YEARS AGO Mayor Mart Getchell of WilUamsburg drove to Ottawa in 41 minutes in an automobile. It was a new recrod, the previous mark being 53 minutes, The fast time was explained as the result of a new cut-off road through the farm of Capt. J. H.
