OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Wednesday, November 8, 19(i) Taking Lumps Abroad There is one part of the current cold war which few persons in this country realize, J. M. Roberts, one of the Associated Press' top news analysts, said recently. Speaking in Kansas City to newsmen, he took private enterprise to task with the statement that "it depends on government to meet the enemy." In this instance, as in too many these days, we depend too much on the government, The Russians have mobilized to wage economic war, he said, but what has this country done? As yet we have no coordinated agency to fight the economic battle. Instead, Roberts pointed out, we shudder at the economic growth of Russia. Stating he felt we had swallowed too many of the Soviet figures, he remarked tersely Russian progress "is relative, even as a boy grows faster than a man." This And That by jph There are a number of places around the world where we miss the boat on trade. Many nations which lean toward Russia and barter with them have found the goods shipped to Russia being resold in world markets in competition with them. Reports of poor delivery, inferior quality and undue pressure on small nations are common. It's true that American business could take advantage of these situations to the betterment of America. Yet, if Americans shy from investing too much capital abroad, you can hardly blame them. A number of business firms have had unhappy experiences in Africa, South America, not to mention Cuba. It's tough enough making a living in America today without the risk of taking lumps abroad. Uncle Sam should recognize this. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Wednesday Can Live It Up In Kuala JPH KUALA LUMPUB — Our hotel would do credit to any midwestern town of 50,000. Air-conditioned, of course, it has fully automatic elevators, parquet floors, bed lights for comfortable reading under, and a refrigerator in each room to insure an ample supply of pure ice water. It has almost instantaneous room service. There ar» shops to fill most needs off the lobby, and a whole floor, decorated in florid Chinese style, given over to a combined restaurant and night club. Here each evening are offered a Japanese girl doing an Egyptian belly dance, Cantonese dishes, two Russian acrobats who strain their muscles nobly, sizzling steaks of delicious Kobe beef, and a Malayan chanteuse who sings American music for not being able to hear yourself eat dinner by. The hotel, and it is only the second best in town, has boys who, at the touch of a bell, rush in with coffee and a morning paper and rush out with your shoes. It has also, and here we qoute from a card on the bedside table. "For the convenience and comfort of guests, and in response to their requests, there are selected Massage Experts to render such service. They arc all professional women and will massage and perform no other service. If any misconduct is found, please report same to management." But enough of the hotel. Kuala Lumpur, by day, confirms the impressesvfr'o'm the night arrival. It has a startling western world look, even if their style is Moorish grafted on late Vic- It is new, with not a one of its structures a century old, and most of them are less than ten years old It still is a small city that is the capital of a small nation, even if it has doubled its population to reach 350,000 in less than a decade. To Your Good Health Almost everything, including the inhabitants, is appropriately cut to this small scale. The public buildings are of American courthouse size, even if their style is Moorish grafted on late vic- torian. The railroad station, the gaudiest structure in town, has only three tracks running through it. The royal palace would not look out of place among the old summer cottages in Newport. The tall buildings stop at eight or nine stories, even if they may properly be called skyscrapers because here the clouds usually hang so low. There are areas of slum and squalor, but again they are small. The contrasts between the rich and the poor are much less than they are in surrounding nations. Even the United States has accepted the spirit of the place by confining its embassy to a single floor above an appliance shop and an airline office. The "vast" new football stadium seats less than 20,000. The hundreds of homes in the brand new town which has been built outisde the city limits are simple and small. Factories in the adjoining industrial park are sightly and in scale. The parks are in keeping and so are the small, steep hills, still covered with raw jungle, that jut up here and there. In Kuala Lumpur are churches of every faith from Buddhist to Baptist, from Sikh to Seventh Day Adventist, from Chinese to Christian. They point few spires to the sky, however. Unless one looks sharply as he drives about, he will miss them, they are so small and tucked away. And KL, too, is relatively clean. Partially because the people are less inclined than others hereabout to foul their own nests, and partially because hard rains fall frequently to flush the streets and gutters. As for those people, they wilt have lo wait until tomorrow. Trust Vital In Good Care By DR. JOSEPH G, MOLNER It was just * postscript in a letter to me: "I want to know if I can change doctors. I've had one for the last two years, and he's only come lo see me about four or five times.—A.G." The answer is yes, of course you can change doctoz'S. It so happens that' this letter comes from a region in North American (I am doing my best to keep this article non-political and non-geographical) which has one of the various "plans" for medical care. I have, I admit, certain opinions about some "plans." Call them prejudices if you wish. Maybe you're right. But I try to keep them to myself. Dr. Motnet Tlie only thing I try to do in this column is to give the best possible advice to people about their health. If I want to vent my opinions on political matters, I'll write a letter to the editor, or make a speech, or something. Whether it's a medical "plan," » "panel," a "system," or whatever, the one basis on which all must be judged is the quality of care which the patient gets. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO A defective flue at the home of George Lathrop, 104 S. Locust, caused a fire which resulted in damage estimated at $200. News dispatches told of the death o! "Chick" Sale, famed character actor of stage and screen. Homer Kiu(, justice of the peace, fined a truck driver from Frontenac, Kas., $50 for speeding. 'Die trucker was hauling 1,000 pounds of dynamite. 50 YEARS AGO David Hodges, 212 E. 1st Street, was seriously ill. P. C. Lindquist, 328 Willow, was having his house raised about two feel. The platform in Music Hall of Ottawa University Conservatory of Music was raised about a foot to place the piano at a higher level so it could be heard over the entire room with suitable volume. So, plans aside (and, frankly, the one in use in the area mentioned is, so I hear and believe, pretty good), the question is this: If a patient isn't satisfied with a doctor, can he get a different one? Yes. But whether this is best for the patient is another matter. The quality of medical care cannot be measured in the number of visits a doctor makes. If the problem involved is a slow, chronic one, the doctor shouldn't waste time (and money) on unnecessary visits. He should (naturally) keep track of the general progress of the case, and depend on the patient to call him if some sudden or unusual development occurs. If, for some reason, the patient just doesn't like, trust, or can't stand the sight of the doctor, a different one should be consulted. And by every human judgment the patient has a right to do so. Trust, liking, empathy, or whatever you want to call it, is a vital ingredient of good medical care. Bui in any country, under any plan, I likewise want patients to realize that "shopping around" for doctors is wasteful. Trying to judge a doctor by the number of visits he makes is futile. Switching from one doctor to another is entirely proper if some friction exists. But switching because of a whim, or trivial matter, is wasteful. This is true whether the patient pays fees direct, or belongs to a "plan," or lives under government medicine. It's wasteful to quit one doctor and then have the next one have to go through the process of learning the history of the case, new examinations, etc. Unless you have a compelling reason, don't switch doctors. If you do have a compelling one do it at once. The purpose of medicine, after all, is to provide the care and attention that a patient needs. Isn't that so? As for waste—duplicated effort is bad under any system. Prayer For Today I say unto you. Love your enemies, bless them that cuvse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. (Matthew 5:44.) 1'RAYEK. 0 God. Thou hast shown love and mercy to us in spite of our sinfulness. Help us to further peace by loving our enemies, winning them to a peaceful spirit by returning good for thi-ir evil. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen. turn 4—Picture of the Day 5—!0utly Snow 13—Quick Draw McGrnw 4—Highway patrol fr—Early Show 9— Quick Draw McGraw 13—Kansas Panorama 6:45 13—Sports With Ow Nelson 6:50 13—Buslneat New* 6:85 * B—Sports, Harold Mack 13—Weather with Gordon Jump 4—News S—News with Harold Mack 3—Man From Cochise 1.'!—News with Don Harrison 6:10 5—Weather with Johnny Yates 5-10—Ncwa with Dou»l»» Edward* 6:30 4—Wagon Train 5-13—Alvin> 9—Steve Allen 1:110 4—Wagon Train 5—Talent Roundup »—Sieve Allou 13—Donna Ueed 1:'.!« 4—Joey Bishop 5-13—Chtrhmatf 9—Top Cat 8:00 4—Por.'y Coma 9—Hawnlltvn Eye 4—perry Como S—Mrs. O.

There's j ordered. You can almost finish ithe usual plot yourself, including i the final scene, with the smiling I child on his way to recovery. But in "The Defenders," the child died. The story itself was primarily concerned with the i (he father-son team of dedicated! h °y' s parents, whose religious [lawyers, widower and bachelor. jTiicre are the weekly courtroom i scenes. And there is, of course, the eternally fascinating peek into j the lives of a different set of troubled people. But there "The Defenders" resemblance to the average TV series slops abruptly. What makes the difference is Reginald Rose, a highly respected TV writer who fearlessly tackles controversial themes. He serves as the series' script editor writer. and, often, as its Last Saturday, "The Defenders" started down a well-trodden path: the tipsy, spoiled girl whose car strikes a child at an intersection. The child is rushed to the hospital and emergency surgery is beliefs forbade botli blood transfusions and surgery—a touchy TV subject. Other episodes have taken on such questions as nmngolism and mercy-killing and unwed parents. Future shows will deal with a miscarriage of justice, abortion, a child rapist, and a consideration of bribery of college athletes— who are going to school on scholarships awarded for game-playing skills rather than scholarship. "Many of these shows," said Rose, "are really morality shows. We're attempting to deal with the law realistically because we feel that the courtroom drama lies here. Other courtroom dramas are glamorized. We're trying to gel to the real motives of real ~ people." - SKIING HOLLOW CO-HIT Shown 7:15 Only HAS THC SCREEN EXPLODED WITH SUCH SPECTACLE! uCOlORmSPECTAMATlQN % $ 5-13—Guiding 11:55 Light 4— Newi IS i tOO Noon 4— HI Noon Cartoons a-13— News U— Camouflage 12:05 65 — New* 13:10 4—Accent 6-13—As The World 8—Make a Face 1:00 4—Jan Murray 5—Password J—Day in Com I 13—Password 4—Loretta Young o—House Par'v 9—Topper 13—House Party v lOO (sT7°?? s , Dn MBl "«« 5-U-ilil)jonaire ,.^-Number Pl ea «« 4—Award Theatre 5-13—Verdlet li your* Turn* ^ 9-Queen tot A Day 5^-Secret «»'* h-H" 8 ! 8 Hollywood 6-33— Edge of Night *-5S V ''° d ° y ° U Tnlst? - 4— News 4:(IO 4-Kukla and Ollie .W.
