OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Tuesday, November 14, 1961 India's Needed Buffer Smiling, amiable Prime Minister Nehru Sometimes, India criticizes the West. Oc- Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Tuesday of India is visiting the country. He has held serious discussions with President Kennedy, visited several U.S. cities and toured Disneyland. What he said about Disneyland, "amazing," we all can understand. What he said after his talks with President Kennedy is not as clear. His visit to the White House was promoted by the U.S. ambassador to India. This country is not too happy with Nehru. While it is commonly understood that Nehru stands for peace, America often feels the Indian government takes too soft an approach to Communism. It has been a source of irritation to the United States that in the United Nations the position of India often is uncertain. Sometimes India votes with the West. This ^nd That by jph casionally, India sides with Russia. More often, she adopts a position of neutrality which to us appears impossible, or untenable. India needs U.S. aid ... and'has received millions from America. Too, that country barters freely with Russia for goods she needs. More and more, though we may not agree with it, India's position grows a bit more logical. She needs the friendship of the Western nations. At this time, she cannot afford the ill will of Russia. Why? The answer is simply that her biggest enemy is not Russia but neighboring Red China. In view of the recent split between Russia and Red China, the Soviet Union could become India's buffer with her fearsome neighbor to the north. Terror Lives On In Malaya KUALA LUMPUR — As we were saying yesterday, before space limitations cut us off, these Chinese Communists in Malaya during the "emergency" thrived on adversity. And they had no help from China of any sort. It still is believed here that Peking had already written them off as a failure. Theirs was purely an indigenous show. For every guerilla disposed of (there were few prisoners taken because a photograph, for identification purposes, of a corpse was so much more convenient) two recruits from remote villages, with some Malays among them, were gained. The terrorists, as they now are generally referred to, lived JPH off the countryside. Through a combination of sympathy and fear, villages in remote settlements at the edge of the jungle supplied them with food. Raids on the headquarters- of rubber plantations gave them miscellaneous materials. Their arms came from caches which had been made back in the mountains and stocked with guns and bullets the British had parachuted to them years before. At their peak these Communist bands totaled no more than seven or eight thousand. Arrayed against them was a force of a quarter-million which comprised everything from Malay home guards to professional soldiers from almost every member of the British Commonwealth. Starved Out Even then, so great were the benefits they had from terrain and Chinese villagers, the terrorists were not defeated. After 12 long years they were To Your Good Health starved out. Or at least near enough to it so that last year the emergency was formally declared to be at an end. The starvation was accomplished by a scorched earth program. Half a million settlers were removed from the edges of the jungle and relocated with such security methods surrounding them that they could not smuggle out even a bowl of rice. One band of terrorists after another was sealed off until its members were shot, surrendered, or stole away as individuals even deeper into the jungle. Toward the end, an amnesty offer was made with some success. Something like 3,000 of the terrorists accepted the promise of forgiveness or deportation to China, which, interestingly enough, is the estimated number of all the Communists who were engaged as activists in this revolutionary effort at the start. Terror Went On But still the terror went on, if in steadily lessening degree. The Malay people, and to a lesser degree the Chinese population whose families, in most instances, have lived here for generations, were the major factor in determining the outcome. In return for a tacit promise of independence by the British, their attitude progressively turned from mild opposition, to indifference, to positive support. So the 1948-60 war finally came to an official end. But the terror lives on as something a little more than a memory. There are still several hundred of the Communists somewhere in the mountain jungles along the border with Thailand. Only this week a band of 40 of them engaged in a skirmish with a Malay detachment and disappeared again, back into the tangle of trees, bushes, and vines. 5:00 4—Picture of the Day 5—Early Show 9—Popcy 13—Roy Rogers 11:30 4—Highway Patrol 5—Early Show 9—Popeye 13—Camera Corner 5:40 13—Sports — Dev Nelson B:BB 5—SporU 13—Weather — Gordon Jump 6:00 4—News 5— News with Harold Mack 8—Ozzie ti Harriet 13— News with L>uu Harrison 6:10 4—Sports—Monte Moore 5—Weather with Johnny Tales 6:16 4—Huntley-Brlnkley P.eport 5-13—News with Oouglai Edward* 6:3(1 4—Laramie 5-13—Marshal Dillon 9—Bugs Bi.nny 7:00 4—Laramle 5—Dick Van Dyke 9—Bachelor Father 13—Whiplash 7:30 4—A Hitchcock 5-13—Dome Olllls 9—New Breed 8:00 4—Dick Powell 5-13-Red Skelton 9—New Breed 8:30 4—Dick Powell 5—Death Valley Days 8—Yours For a Song 13—Jim Backus 9:un 4—Westlnghouse Presents 5-13—Gary Mooie 9—Alcoa Premiere 9:30 4—Special 5-13—Gary Moore 9—Close Up 10:00 4-5-9-13—Nfiwi 10:10 4-5—Weather 10:16 4—Special N.Y.

JOSEPH G. MOLNER Trust the teen-agers to discover whatever there is to be discovered — and some of them now are on a dangerous "kick." The solvents used in modern plastic glues and cements have vapors which can have strong narcotic or inebriating properties, if inhaled in excessive amounts. Because of this, "glue or ce-j ment sniffing" has become a j fad among some youngsters. It is bad enough that this i sniffing can cause all the hazards we associate with drunkenness. But it also can become ] habit forming. Still worse, it can cause se-1 rious physical harm, and not all of the damage can be corrected afterward. Depending on the type of vapors that are inhaled, there can be damage to the brain, nervous system, blood, liver or kidneys. I am not proposing that we give up the use of these glues and cements. Properly handled, they are not harmful. But I do strongly urge that parents and teachers watch out for this practice of "sniffing," and take whatever steps are necessary to stop it. The risk is too great. Among the solvents being used are such materials as methyl ethyl ketone, methyl isobutyl ketone, toluene, xylene, methylene chloride, methyl chloroform, trichortheylene and occasionally the very dangerous carbon tatrachloride or benzene. Using an occasional dab of these adhesives is all right. If they are to be used steadily on a project or hobby, then be sure to have good ventilation and sniffing? Never! "Dear Dr. Molner: Should a man who has a heart condition smoke cigars, and how many a day? You never say anything about cigar smoking, only cigarets.—H.B." I beg your pardon, sir, I do not limit "smoking" or "tobacco" to any particular form. True, the discussions over lung cancer deal with ciga- rets because cigaret smokers usually inhale. But in relation to other problems, the same noxious factors — nicotine, tars and miscellaneous chemicals — exist in any form of tobacco. I don't know what you mean by a "Heart condition." There are many types. But if your doctor told you to stop smoking, don't try to wheedle me into giving you an excuse for not minding him. If he warned you not to smoke, that would include cigars as well as cigarets. "Dear Dr. Molner: I have been troubled with my gums. They bleed easily and seem to turn a different shade of red hi some places and whitish in other spots. "I have taken penicillin tablets, Vitamin C concentrate and a mouth wash. All work temporarily, then the infection reappears. My dentist calls the infection trench mouth.^J.H., Jr." The germ which causes trench mouth exists in all normal mouths. It causes trouble when dental disease lets it penetrate beyond the normal surfaces of the mouth. Usually that means some dental problem below the gum level. Therefore local treatment — lozenges, mouth washes and all the rest, are of only temporary value if effective at all. Special attention to whatever dental defect permits the invasion of the germ is the way to get at the problem. (People without teeth don't have trench mouth.) Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO A. E. Taggart, 922 S. Main, shot an unusual fox squirrel near Princeton. The animal's tail was tipped with white. Jacky, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Keller, 318 E 4th, underwent a tonsil operation at Ransom Memorial Hospital. Hay, 110 tons of it, was destroyed when a barn burned at Williamsburg. The hay was owned by a Kansas City hay company. 50 YEARS AGO E. S. Dunn, left for the return trip to his home at Tampico, Mex., after a visit here with his son, Ernest Dunn. Scott Moherman, Bailey Johnson and Cashier Messe} of the Wellsville Bank were in Ottawa on business. They made the trip from Wellsville in the Johnson automobile. George W.
