OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Friday. November 10, 1961 From Our Readers Foundation Of Feathers Serious thinking is being provoked as to what motivates our city commissioners in their firm stand: that, there shall be no vote by the electorate, after more than 1,300 citizens of Ottawa asked to vote on a matter involving more than three quarters of a million dollars. Our city light plant is a large utility and a valuable asset to Ottawa. It makes money and thus saves all of us tax dollars. The Citizens Committee is vitally interested in saving, maintaining and improving this utility. We advocate long-range planning. We are opposed to the present and seemingly projected stop-gap policy. We are opposed to any future purchase of experimental equipment. We advocate the purchase of proven equipment of proper size that will take care of our present and future requirements. May we define stop-gap versus long- range planning: stop-gap policies are usually construed to mean a short period of time, say from three to ten years, while long-range planning takes in consideration anticipated needs for many years, in our case probably 30 years or longer. . The possibility of our city commission- To Your Good Health ers purchasing another experimental engine to set along side the experimental engine we already have is unthinkable, in our opinion. Taking this as a projection would be like building a foundation of feathers under our city light plant, and, as we all know, feathers are for the birds, the same as experimental equipment. Especially so when tuned to a frequency of more than three quarters of a million dollars. — Gilbert Robe, Citizens Committee. A Little Praise I just want to say "thank you" to the city of Ottawa for the new lights that glow so brightly at night on East 2nd, and also 1st. Up to the time the lights were installed, I didn't care to be down on 2nd street. It was so dark at night. Now it's more like daylight than night. I'm hoping that in the future Ottawa's Main Street will be lighted as well. I fully believe it will help to bring folks into our city to have streets well lighted, especially our shopping areas.— Maude L. Walker. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Friday Channel 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Prevent Heart Attacks By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: What can be done to avoid strokes and hart attacks, if preventive measures are known?—A.R." A big order. Since these aren't germ-born conditions, we can't rely on vaccines. This doesn't mean we can't do anything — but we have to do entirely different things. Heredity is important, but there's not much we can do : »bout that. It's an old scientific joke: "The best way l\ to avoid strokes and heart attacks is to have parents who! didn't." Heredity determines the quali- Hy of our arteries, our body chemistry, and to some extent our temperament. If we come from a family that has had Dr more than its share of troubles in this regard, it will pay to be careful. Some such families have higher-than-average quantities .jrf fa^si (including cholesterol) in the blood. Some 'terid to have certain types of hardening of the arteries. All of us can expect to "sit and listen to our arteries harden" as we grow older. This is na- tur»l. But some types of hardening are preferable to others. If the hardening (or thickening) takes place inside the hollow core of an artery, and is a sort of internal coating, it is more conducive to strokes or heart troubles than the type that occurs right in the wall of the artery itself. This does not reduce the inside to the same extent. We can't select the type of hardening we prefer. All we can do is take more precautions if we have the "wrong" kind. What precautions? Well, so far at any rate, I have small faith in any "easy" ways of "reducing cholesterol." I have, however, considerable faith in avoiding obesity. If you've read any insurance company literature, you know that overweight people don't live as long as those of normal weight. Why? One reason is that the overweight means there is more body to.;vbe" provided with blood. If the arteries are hardened, it's still more difficult. And blood pressure consequently becomes higher. And there's more chance of trouble. So one rule is to lose weight. If blood pressure is too high (and overweight is only one of many contributory causes, it Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hollingsworth, 703 E. 4th. Snoopy, a bird dog owned by Mary Terrill, 205 E. 13th, was struck and killed by an automobile. Mrs. Lowell Jones, 220 S. Walnut, was ill with scarlet fever. 50 YEARS AGO Clyde Wallace was wearing a patch over his left eye and bandages on his head. An automobile in which he was riding in Topeka ran into a street car. Fred Hay purchased the Bamsdeli Barber Shop on North Mam Steet, just south of Tecumseh. J. R. Porter, who was learning to drive a car he had purchased, said the barn was giving him some trouble. The barn reached over and smashed one of his headlamps as he tried to drive in. Prayer For Today Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord. (Ephesians 2:20-21.) PRAYER: 0 Father, hasten the day when all nations will be one family within Thy love, when Hie knowledge of the Lord shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. In His name. Amen. should be controlled. In the last decade or less we have found drugs to help in this regard. Some doctors, and count me with them, believe that excessive use of tobacco is harmful. Most doctors, and again count me with them, have observed that over-fatigue, emotional outbursts, and pent-up nervous tension also are harmful. So is excessive physical activity. Bui that doesn't mean you should park in a chair and wait for trouble to catch up. Moderate or mild but steady activity is good. So be active but don't overdo it. Stop well short of exhaustion. If one has had a heart attack or stroke, anticoagulant drugs (to prevent formation of clots) are important and useful. In cases in which there are clear signs of approaching trouble, these drugs may be advisable. Detecing the signs and giving the drugs both are difficult matters and must be handled by your doctor. But all in all, there are things you can do to protect your heart and guard against strokes. Some require your doctor's help, but some you can do yourself, if you really want to. "Dear Dr. Molner: Does having a goiter operation tend to make one more allergic to different foods, etc.?—T.G." No — although it is possible, at times, to de- velope allergies as time goes by. "Dear Sir: What is your opinion of using simple glycerine suppositories to aid in mild cases of constipation? I travel with my husband, and food and water are not always the same as when I am at home, sometimes causing slowness or difficulty in evacuation.—Mrs. A.G." That's a sensible method to initiate difficult movements. NOTE TO MRS. D.: I didn't mention any particular drug expected to "be a boon to heart and diabetic patients." I did mention a general class of drugs — diuretics — which are useful in discharging excess fluid from the system and hence of considerable use in some heart cases and other conditions. NOTE TO MRS. M.G.: Yes, plastic dentures cause soreness of the mouth in some cases. What are ulcers? How should they be treated? What can you do to help rid yourself of ulcers and stay rid of them? For answers, read Dr. Molner's helpful new booklet, How To Heal Peptic Ulcers And Keep Them Healed. For your copy write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20c in coin to cover cost of printing and handling. Dr. Molner is happy to receive readers' questions, and whenever possible uses them in his column. However, due to the great volume of mail received daily, Dr. Molner regrets he cannot answer letters individually. Laff-A-Dav Saturday "i like you.

We accepted the invitation of Othman bin Wok to go down and visit the Utusan Melayu. The plant of this leading Malayan language newspaper is down a lane with deep chuckholes, past a tent under which half a dozen pickets (the strike has M been going on more than two months) are playing cards and listening to a radio while a fresh pot of tea is brewing, and through a high, barbed wire fence. The newspaper, mechanical ly, is strictly modern. Eight line-casting machines built in England of American design. A hydraulic mat-making machine of Danish Manufacture. A Japanese copy of an English rotary press. A German press for commercial printing. A Japanese copy of an American machine for setting headlines. Norwegian newsprint. Italian adding machines for the business office. Swiss typewriters for the reporters. The works manager, or mechanical superintendent, showed us around. He was promoted to his position from having been a successful reporter, and his mechanical training had consisted of changing typewriter ribbons. He introduced us to the young Malayan who runs the rotary press. He had learned all he knew by .sign language from the two Japanese machinists who set up the machine. After the inspection of Utusan Melayu, bin Wok took us to lunch at a Chinese restaurant. It began with scalding towels, to wipe off one's hands JPII and face, and glasses of hot rice wine. Then, served all together from bowls in the center of the table, sharkfin soup, prawns with hot and cbld sauce, chicken (shredded) in a basket (made of dried noodles), mixed vegetables, a separate serving of bamboo shoots, and, of course, rice. All the diners reached into first one dish and then another with their chopsticks (except us. We chicken, too, and asked for a fork) for first one. mouthful and then another. They were very agile with their chopsticks and in no time at all the bowls were empty. After the luncheon, which was really excellent, as we sat picking our teeth, we recalled th« pickets and asked our host about the strike. "It still is going on, but it is breaking up," bin Wok explained, complacently. "This morning three more of our workers returned. But a hard core still remains. Last night, despite the police guards inside and outside the plant, they threw another rock through a window that almost got in'o the press." This one has been a most curious strike. It has nothing to do with wages, hours, or working conditions. It amounts to a protest by the editorial staff against the editorial policy of the paper. The strike is one in which the mechanical employ- es have joined. All but four walked out, but somehow publication continued. "We are an independent newspaper and uphold the freedom of the press," said bin Wok. "V.'e criticize the government freely. But it happens that our principal shareholders are members of parliament and their associates. One of the Sultans is among them even. So perhaps editorially we are inclined to give the government the benefit of the doubt. "The reporters and all the editors except the chief wanted us to be more liberal. The Communists among them wanted us to be more liberal still. So they struck. But some of them have come back and others we don't want. If they should have it submitted to government arbitration, I am not worried about the outcome."
