OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Friday, October 27, 1961 From Our Readers Have Right To Be Wrong After 40 years or more of study about government, I have concluded imperfect government is unavoidable in societies of .imperfect people. Always, government has been a problem. W. A. White said it years ago — government will absorb all the little people if they don't watch out. Plato hought he had it — he would make an Utopia (some say he was the first "red") by having government by "guardians" who couldn't do wrong because they were immune by breeding and training. Benevolent despots come and sometimes go with regularity. In recent decades we have had a whole team of them. They promise much and deliver just a little. Enough, however, to make one of my teachers remark: "Benevolent despotisms would be the best governments if we could only keep the despots benevolent." Hanging around the edges of the years has been this strange animal — democracy. Somehow, if people could choose they would choose wisely. And, if no more, when a change was needed, it could be achieved without bloodshed and terror. This democracy idea has seemed to me to have at least two virtues. A change can be provided — and the individual can be saved from being a nobody in the necessary processes of regulation and control. There is nothing perfect about it. Majority opinion may sometimes be right, but, looking backward, it evidently is often wrong. Majority opinion condoned slavery, fostered segregation, backed up imperialism — swallowed all the false slogans making "A Good Indian A Dead Indian", "My Country Right Or Wrong". There is room for a volume to list democracy's failures. basic essentials. Men are equal, there are inalienable rights, good government is based on consent and there is right in revolution. No greater document has been made for human liberty — and, if you have forgotten, the date was 1776. It seems to me there is lurking somewhere in the shadows in Ottawa right now the elements of this age-old struggle. If democracy ever claimed to be a system for all choices, its claims were overdrawn. Masses of people cannot vote intelligently on policies affecting scientific equipment or development. But they can petition. Petition for information; petition to all representative officials to be sure of their decisions. Those who circulate such democratic petitions hark back to decades gone — when positive action often had to take place at the grass roots — and they should not be ignored — not be subject to absurd technicalities found in all law. More and more in our terribly complex world, government has to be delegated to experts — but that need not destroy the essential rights of those who want to know what is being done. A few years ago it is very likely the people elected John R. Brinkley gover nor by an unprecedented demonstration of "write-in" vote. Those who counted the ballots found sufficient irregularities to reduce his vote to 181,000. (The winner received only 200,000 plus.) I think it would have been some sort of tragedy had Mr. Brinkley succeeded But I am not sure it wasn't a greater tragedy when the vote counters' will be came that of the people. As a friend of mine recently remark ed: "The people have a right to be LAHORE — A week's laundry went out at 9 nd wan back by 6. We could tell by the tattle- ale gray it had been washed with Brand X. It vas clean, though, if only mildly ironed. The price was 51 cents. The charge for pressing a suit was 2 cents. And at places other than the city's eading hotel the prices likely would have been nly half as much. A taxi will take you across town for a [iiarter and a pony cart will carry you'for considerably less. A chauffeur — and here if you have a car you have one — receives more than the average at 100 rupees, or $22 a month, and if you want him to wait until three in the morning, he waits. A skilled workman receives less in a month than his American counterpart in a week and his working condi- ions must be seen to be believed. Jefferson boiled it all down to four wrong." — B. Smith Haworth To Your Good Health No Imaginary Illness Dr. Motner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNlEl* ' "Dear Sir: Please write about psychosomatic illness. 1 understand it's mostly imaginary. Is this correct? "Is there a special treatment, and do people really get well?-A.W." No. it's not "mostly imaginary." And yes, they do really get well — especially if the doc- : tor has a great deal of insight, and the patient has better than average good sense — underneath his or her nerves. The word psychosomatic means symptoms in the body (the "soma") either related to or produced by the emotions or "psyche." It's a case of both. No just "either or." Perhaps the simplest example is blushing. People who are chronic "blushers" do so when in public. Their emotions do this. But they;, .don't when all alone, suddenly blush when their minds are at ease. Or headaches — purely "somatic" or purely physical headaches are rare. They come when you are tired, or upwrought, or nervous, or feeling guilty about something, or wondering how you can possibly do all the things you should have done yesterday, or whether you can say or do the right thing tomorrow. But the simple examples aren't necessarily the ones we have to deal with. Most psychosomatic difficulties are much more complicated. Patient may be entirely unaware of the emotional disturbance causing the troubles. They just don't connect nervous tensions with physical symptoms. That's when things are tough! After many years of groping study, we now know emotions often are suppressed — that the "calm" patient keeps "swallowing" his emotions until ho no longer realizes that he is doing it. But they pile up and overflow eventually, without his realizing where they come from. To such a patient, only the symptoms are evident. It is not fair to say that the symptoms are "mostly imaginary." The symptoms — the headaches, the upset stomachs, the fatigue, the muscular pains, the rashes and itches are real. The cause may be emotion. The result is real. For just one very common example, people with un- relaxed tension often have peptic ulcers. The ulcers are as real as a broken arm! For all ihese examples, I must point out that I have chosen the more simple and obvious instances. And also, I trust, the likeliest. Often, however, more than one symptom will appear, aggravating the victim and for a time misleading the doctor. Some cases become excessively complicated and subtle. And yet most people overcome these troubles, sooner or later. This speaks well for the ruggedness of the human race. It also is a sound reason why we should tackle these psychosomatic cases with optimism — once we make up our minds to tackle then with sincerity and sound reasoning. Part ol the sound reasoning, if you'll pardon my blunt statement, is for the overly-tense person to admit, to himself, the fundamental fact that he is tense and anxious — and that too much of this can cause the most real of "physic al" consequences. "Dear Dr. Molner: Recently I read an article which stated that a lady movie star used swee almond oil on her hair. Will you please tell m< What benefit she derives from its use?—M.H.' Well, she got some publicity out of it. Beyonc that, I guess you'll have to ask her. "Dear Di. Molner: Is it harmful for a person who has chronic colitis to eat meat? I also drink prune juice, night and early morning, ai a laxative. Is that harmful?—M.J." No, no harm from either. NOTE TO MRS. G.T.: No, alcoholic drinks nev er should be taken when one is using tranquili zers. The combination usually compounds th effect of both, and in some cases can cause a person to be dull, or to lose coordination aw become accident prone, or -have other severe con sequences. "You Car. Stop Sinus Trouble!" is the title o my booklet explaining what sinus trouble really is, and encouraging sinus sufferes to do some thing about it. For a copy write to Dr. Molner Box 158. Dundee, HI., enclosing a long, self-ad dressed, stamped envelope and 20c in coin to cover handling. Dr. Molner is happy to receive readers' ques tions, and whenever possible uses them in his column. However, due to the great volume o mail received daily, Dr. Molner regrets he can not answei letters individually. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Rev. G. C. Planner? of Ottawa spoke at _ Democrat rally at Lyndon, and was scheduled to speak at another in Emporia. Oats straw brought 39 cents a bale at a farm sale at the Ted Haas farm near Wellsville, A flurry of dog poisoning cases occurred in the west residential area of Ottawa. 50 FEARS AGO A marriage license was issued to Guy Parrish Topeka, and Mabelle Day, Pomona. Miss Margaret Brown of Fall River, Kas., was here for a visit with Miss Retta Wolf. C. A. Bird, operator of a music store at 125 Main, purchased a new 22-horsepower Maxwel automobile and also took the agency for the Maxwell cars. Prayer For Today At midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. (Acts 18:25.) PRAYER: Grant, 0 Lord, that we may be so filled with Thy love, and so assured of Thy presence, that whatever our lot, we shall know Thee to be our song and our salvation; through Christ our Savior. Amen. This And That by jph Takes Lot Of Cheap Help JPH There's a Catch But there is a catch in all these figures. Labor lere seems almost ridiculously, cheap, but it takes a lot of labor to get any work done. We lave seen this most graphically illustrated in :erms of newspaper production. It happens that one of the larger newspapers of Pakistan is almost identical in terms of circulation, number of pages printed, and even in equipment with a paper with which we have rather intimate connections back home. The personnel contrasts are almost incredible. The American paper has three persons to edit its news and prepare its headlines. The Pak pa- per has 17. Three proofreaders suffice for the paper back home, while 14 are required by the local journal. Plus 14 others to read the copy aloud while the mistakes are being sought out. Three persons keep all the books and business records of the American paper. The paper here has 20 without a single typewriter or adding machine .among them. The American newspaper has sever linotype machines and as many operators. The local one has 10 machines and 25 operators working in three shifts. Brown Boys Abound Like comparisons run through every department Additionally the Pakistan paper has at least a score of brown boys to guard doors, bring in glasses of water or cups of tea, deliver papers from one poorly placed department to another, run errands, and search workers as they leave thp plant. As nearly as we could tell from the figures made available, the production costs of this particular paper out here, which is operated as efficiently as its rivals, are roughly the same as those of its American counterpart, despite the almost shocking difference in the wage scales. No Labor Threat If these publishing comparisons are typical of industry in general, and we have good reason to believe they are, they tear into shreds a long accepted and widely worshipped myth. At least by Pakistani examples the American worker doesn't need the slightest protection from cheap foreigr. labor. While wages in general may be a third of what they are at home, or even less, it requires three times the number of workers to achieve the same production.

Main CH 2-3490 Picks Joan Crawford For Glamor By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP TV-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP)- When William Nichols, producer of next Sunday night's "The Ziegfield Touch," needer 1 a narrator with glamor he sought out Joan Crawford. She had never been in a Ziegfield show, she had never met the fabulous Flo But Joan has that elusive quality, glamor, notably lacking in the current crop of starlets. "It does seem to have disappeared," Miss Crawford admitted. "Glamor takes preparation and hard work. It has to be started with the starlets, and they can't do it alone. The studios have to help and they just don't bother today. "In television, they have to work so fast, the hours are so long and the contracts with the players so different, that there just isn't time to prepare the attractive young performers for real stardom. Instead, they just shove them into bein? personalities— and that's very different." Joan, conceding that ability is certainly an important asset for an actress, insists that equally important is the way in which he —or more likely, she—is presented to the public. "In the great dayi at Metro," she reflected, "they carefully developed the great, the glamorous stars, particularly the women. They protected them, they made them remote, belonging to another, more wonderful world. But today there is none of this protective quality Why, today, there is no chance for any person to be developed like Garbo—who is still a figure of glamor, still aloof and unknown." Joan, presumably, will treat the subject more comprehensively soon: She and writer Jane Ardmore have just tinished the manuscript of a biography, "Portrait of Joan" to be published in the spring.
