OTTAWA HERALD Page Four From Our Readers Saturday, October 28, 1961 On Being Negative In response to the letter to the editor, "Prophets of Doom", which dwelled on the issue of a defeatist attitude^ we have today what amounts to a sophisticated fetish against being "negative". Admittedly, negativism can be overdone; there are few things that can't, but from this it does not follow that being negative is wrong. A policeman is negative when he arrests a robber; a doctor is negative when he performs an appendectomy; a fireman is negative when he puts out a fire; God is negative when He gives us eight of His ten commandments. Just as it is not wrong to be against disease, injustice or fires, neither is it wrong to be against Communism. There is nothing wrong in being against evil— and communism is evil—with a vengeance. One does not have to know all the answers to all our problems before he is justified in being against communism. The following will substantiate Ed Wiltze's statement: The American Communications Association—which is, according to Richard Arens, director of the House Un-American Activities Committee, a communist infiltrated union— controls all the wires and lead lines in and out of the Pentagon. It Is not the communists who are destroying America. America is being destroyed by citizens who will not listen, are not informed and will not think. The uninformed are easily misinformed. Americans are uninformed today to an extent that is unbelievable. We need more men like Ed Wiltze. Only the responsible deserve to be free. If this awakening to our responsibilities does not come, we are not worth saving. — Larry D. Wassmer, 407 S. Cherry. This And That by jph Like To Read About Ayub LAHORE — There were eight separate stories in thp papei this morning about President Field Marshal Mohammed Ayub Khan. That's about par. H»- dedicated a power plant, deplored recent anti-Muslim riots in India to the extent of two columns, visited an industry, took an airplane trip, received some important personages, and so on. This fullsome daily coverage of the man who became President simply by saying he was three years ago may have some connection with the fart that government advertising is greatest single source of newspaper revenue here and the government is inclined to spread the bulk of its advertising among publishers who support it. First Force To a more important extent, however, Ayub Khan's doings are reported in such detail because that is what the readers want. Those readers, the literate 13 per cent, respect him as an individual and for all practical purposes a» their government. Next to Islam, the Field Marshal is the most import- /'' ant force holding P a k i s- '' tan together as a nation, i Next to him are a hatred of India as the enemy and the dream of regaining Kashmir. The somewhat benevolent martial law Ayub has imposed on this country is ( a vast improvement over what existed beftJrie. vWeviously there was a welter of corrupt parties and politicians, subservient to the land-owners, industrialists and moneylenders. These groups still have inordinate influence, but not so much. The Right Sort Ayub has demonstrated that in the formative To Your Good Health JPH years of nations composed of immature people there is a useful place for a dictator. Provided he is the right sort of one. And he, undoubtedly, is that. He could hold his supreme position with unflagging popular support for the rest of his life, if he's a mind to. But he doesn't. Like most of the world's leaders today, Pakistan's self-selected President is an ardent advocate of democracy. Like all of them, however, he has his own particular definition of the word. Here "basic democracies" is the phase on every politically - minded person's lips. A basic democracy is a city ward, a village, or a rural area with a population of a few thousand. Its purpose is not to safeguard its members rights and liberties but to mold their actions to the state's good. A basic democracy, when the scheme becomes fully operative next year, will function like a New England town meeting. It will elect members to the governing body of a larger political unit. The secondary bodies will select from among themselves the members of the national assembly. The assembly will elect the nation's chief executive. So deep-seated is the loathing of politicians that in the first elections the organi zation of political parties is forbidden. Ace in the Hole So the basic democracies system to be one under which this country will be governed by series of town meetings stacked one on the other. Will it function satisfactorily? At the outset it probably will. Largely because the first President to be elected automatically and by acclamation will be Field Marshall Mohammed Ayub Khan. Should the basic democracies not operate as intended, he still will have the army back of him to see that they do. Grandma Alice Has Charm By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-TV Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Sixteen years ago, Alice Faye turned the key of her dressing room door at 20th Century-Fox and drove off the lot. She didn't return. "I'd had it," she recalls. "I had gotten married to Phil (Harris) and I'd had my daughter Alice and then Phyllis. That seemed more important to me. "Besides, I was mad about that last picture I had made, 'Fallen Angel.' I was doing it with Otto Preminger and I loved 'Laura,' which he had done. I was hoping for the same sort of picture, something that would get me into dramatic parts. "They cut my big scenes right out of the picture. The studio was building up Linda Darnell at the iime, and they made her scenes more important. Now I love Linda, but I didn't think they should be doing that to me. "So I gave them the key and told them to keep it. I didn't even take my things with me. I understand they've still got a couple of trunks full of stuff of mine. Might be fun to go through it some day." Alice is back on the old home lot, looking much the same as she did in her heyday — round-faced, blonde and cheerful. She is playing Pat Boone's mother, of all things, in a third go at "State Fair." It doesn't seem to bother her, being recently a grandmother. All grandmothers should look so good. All stars should be such charmers. Alice belongs to the old school of film personalities, the ones who had a ball doing their jobs. Alice came to Hollywood for "George White's Scandals of 1934" and was queen of the lot until the war years, when a girl named Betty Grable came along. Then Grable was queen until a girl named Marilyn Monroe came along. And so it goes. Alice lived in contented retirement, mostly at the Harrises' Palm Springs home. When the call came for "State Fair," she was ready. She presented the same dimensions to the wardrobe department as when she left 16 years ago. Don't Lose Patience By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Here's a letter that might help a lot of people — both doctors and patients: "Dear Dr. Molner: I follow your column every day and enjoy it muchly. I'm not very strong for doctors as such, because I refuse to spend the afternoon sitting in their offices when I have a definite appointment. I wish you would write about that, along with your opinion on a funny trouble which I have each year in July and August. It's not hay fever, and if it's an allergy, why just those two months? "It's a breaking out, mostly i around my ankles, which burn] and itch. I eat just the same, and wear \ the same clothes the year | round. - B.J." Here we have a case of irritants — at the ankles and at the other end. At which end shall we start? Oh, at the upper end, I guess — the stewing' about waiting to see the doctor. I cannot, with a clear conscience, deny that sometimes patients have to wait. That's why we have "waiting rooms," preferably with magazines containing only articles that can be read in five minute: or less, so that people don't get half way through one, only to be called in to the doctor and never to finish it. Remind me to suggest that somebody publish a magazine designed entirely for waiting rooms. The fact is that I don't know of any way of making appointments jibe exactly with the clock. You can't tell when a "simple" case will require some more questions, thought and testing. There's no way of knowing when a day's schedule will be thrown off balance by a patient who insists on talking too long about nothing — or, more important, when one or two or five unexpected but real emergencies will arise. And obviously you can't object to, and much less refuse, a real emergency. I do not, certainly, deny that patients with 2:30 appointments sometimes have to wait until 2:45 or three I've known, in fact, of office schedules to be thrown off by nearly three hours — which is tough on everybody, the patient who is understandably angry, the doctor who is tired to death, and his receptionist, nurse or technician who has a date that night and wants to get home and dress. Believe me, it's no picnic for anybody when the schedule gets off schedule! On an occasional really bad day, receptionists sometimes tell people, "Unexpected emergencies (emergencies are always unexpected, are they nnt?) have come up. Can you shop for an hour, and come back? Or would you rather come another day?" That's the best that can be done. If a patient insists on not waiting at all, the only thing I can suggest is to ask for the first appointment of the day — which may mean taking a date several weeks off. One thing I'm sure of: No doctor ever makes people wait on purpose! Just remember that, unless you want to be treated "by the clock," you can't always have your appointment right on the minute. As to the other end of the itch, the ankles in July and August, I can say just this: It certainly sounds like an allergy. "Hay fever" is only one allergy among many. There are grass fover, rose fever, allergies to other flowers and plants and trees. Think! What do you do in those months? Visit in the country? And walk through fields or woods? Work in the garden? Spend a lot of time at a beach? What's different? Look there for the answer. "Dear Dr. Molner: Does 'falling of the womb' always require an operation?—M.T.M.' Definitely no. The answer depends on the degree of drop and how much distress it causes you. Occasionally a pessary may be helpful. In other cases, no treatment is required. MBS B.H.: "Myalgia" means muscle pain. Dr. Molner welcomes all reader mail, but regrets that due to the tremendous volume received daily, he is unable to answer individual letters Readers' questions are incorporated in his column whenever possible. Prayer For Today When Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. (Luke 23:46.) PRAYER: Our Father, we entrust ourselves into Thy hands this day. Keep us from being unkind or unworthy or sinful in our dealings with our fellow men. Thereby may we commend to other,, the great love of Jesus Christ, our Savior. In His name we pray. Ameo. Ottawa Herald 106-108 8. MalD Published dally except Sunday and Holidays.
