OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Monday, November 20, 1961 No Real Problem Waxing undiminished these days is the argument over whether or not to build fallout shelters. Equally as argumentative is the belief of some that if you have one, you have the right to keep your neighbors out by force in case of nuclear attack. Now raifeing a question is the matter of taxes on fallout shelters. The state property valuation director has ruled that fallout shelters in Kansas must be assessed for taxes if they enhance valuation of the property. This really could raise a question. Pity the poor assessor who has to decide if that cave in the backyard or that reinforced addition to the basement boosts the value of a home. Frankly, though, we believe that this doesn't really present an insurmountable obstacle. To a people which has hidden everything from watches and diamond rings to grand pianos from the assessor, concealment of a fallout shelter should be a snap. A Team Effort After defeating traditional rival Baker and posting two consecutive undefeated seasons, Ottawa University's Braves have turned in their suits. For the past week there has been considerable talk about a bowl game. From this quarter it is hoped this talk has blown over. OU isn't big enough to entertain thoughts of any major contest. And a minor post season bid would scarcely be worth the effort moneywise or where This And That by jph prestige for the school or honor for the fine team are concerned. The '61 football season, however, should not be allowed to become history without words of praise for the OU squad and its fine coaching staff. In game after game it was apparent that OU fielded the best-coached team. It was also apparent that the Braves had no single outstanding player. OU's perfect record this year is the result of a team effort in the finest sense. Hot, Hotter, In Madras Madras, India — In its better aspect, Madras has a solid, respectable, old-fashioned look that the British imposed on it through the 19th century. The new, 13-story building of the government insurance agency, (here the insurance companies, too, have been nationalized) rising above the two-story shops that line the broad main street, looks incongruous. The big, red brick railroad station could be moved intact to a Midlands city in the United Kingdom and look is if it always had belonged there. The big, old residences along some of the shaded streets are pure Victorian. The shopping center, though, has more the character of an Oriental bazaar, and the open markets are the other side of the world from self-service groceries. JPH The wharves of the small port are busy if odoriferous. Southward from*...} it;-.jjong the sea extends an impressive esplanade for several miles. It is backed by the old navy facilities, government structures, a 160-foot lighthouse from which the view is said to be impressive, the buildings of a university large enough to cater to 30,000 students, and a new hotel where the meals arr execrable and it is almost impossible to obtain a taxi after nine o'clock at night. Mysterious East In Madras, however, there is no occasion to To Your Good Health get a taxi after this hour except to return to the city's other hotel where one happens to be staying. The other hotel has a snake charmer with a bored cobra who in some mysterious way be yond western understanding makes his appearance each morning just as the first tourist has bestirred himself. Madras has 2>/£ million people and, according to a man who is building India's first tire factory and should know, 9,000 privately-owned cars. This comes out to a car for every 278 persons. For those who can not afford other than their legs for transportation, however, there are rickshaws — two-wheeled cars drawn by trotting men. Sleep in Street In Madras there are a few people of great wealth and a few more in comfortable circum stances. There are many more, though, who sleep in the streets. Trucks face heavy competition from human haulers. Crews of half a dozen men or so will pile two or three tons of freight on their two-wheeled wagon and inch it across the city, taking most of the day to do it, for a charge of $1.10 to be divided among themselves. There are many out of work, but a regularly employed menial laborer has a rupee to take home to his family every night. A rupee is worth 22 cents. Madras has several Hindu temples, both an Anglican and a Catholic cathedral, several small Protestant missions, and the world headquarters of the Theosophical Society. It has two types of weather; hot and hotter. Not A "Death Sentence" By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "When I was told I had diabetes," a woman reader writes, "I thought it was the end — that I was doomed. "I joined the diabetes society — and;: the first meeting I went to, I thought I'd made a mistake and was in the wrong place. Everybody looked so normal and healthy. I thought they'd all look sickly, the way I felt I must look. "I soon found out I was in, the right place, and what a difference it has made to me!" For years there have been; chapters of the American Dia-' betes Association, made up ofj doctors and others in the health field. Rather recently, lay societies I have been formed as companion groups, composed of people who have diabetes or of Dr. Atolner those who are interested in controlling this disease. As some other causes of death have declined in importance, diabetes has been rising, and it now ranks amdng the top 10. Yet at the same time, the diabetes patient has more assurance than ever before in history of living somewhere near the normal allotted life span. Sounds like a paradox? Well, until 35 years ago, anyone who developed diabetes while young died quickly, sometimes in a few months. Only those who developed diabetes later in life survived to have children. A starvation diet was the only known means of extending, even for a little while, the life of such a patient. Today, with insulin, and with "diabetes pills" of much more recent discovery, and quite a few other but less-important things, the diabetes patients lives a life that is for all practical purposes a normal one, simply abiding by a few moderate rules. Members of a diabetes society look and act and are just like anybody else. True, at advance age a great many "die of diabetes," but only at a time when they would have died of something else anyway. Since, today, diabetes can be so well-controlled, most diabetics (if they develop the disease early) may still live full lives and have children. Since there's a strong hereditary factor involved, it means that many more diabetics are being born now; we have more diabetes. The difference is this: Learning that one has diabetes no longer is a "sentence of death." Simple care (but one must follow the rules) affords long, happy life. The day will come, I thoroughly believe, when we must and can detect cases sooner and can extend the happy life span. To do so, we must test everybody oftener. So once a year, about this time, the American Diabetes Association promotes a program for testing all over this continent. From reliable statistics, for every case we know about, there is another that we have not yet found. Have the test! Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Union Chapter No. 15, Order of Eastern Star Ottawa, observed its 60th anniversary. Mrs. H. R Webster, who was worthy matron of the chapter, read a history of the organization, written by Mrs. Onie Stearns, a former secretary of the chapter. Miss Esther Garrison and Mrs. C. A.

Intermezzo' Bare Without Bergman By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP TV-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP)-If ever the acting magic of Ingrid Bergman and the late Leslie Howard was demonstrated, it was Sunday night when NBC's "Theatre 62" adapted the screen play "Intermezzo" into an hour-long television play. Without the stars of the original movie, the bare bones of this thin little plot were painfully visible. It was just another story of a self-indulgent man on an extramarital romp. Jean Pierre Aumont played the man as overbearing and selfish. Neither beautiful Ingrid Thulin nor Teresa Wright, playing the mistress and the forsaken wife, had much to do except wring their hands. The most interesting venture of the weekend was Friday night's "Vincent Van Gogh, a self portrait," on NBC. The photography was superb. Often the film camera lingered on a view which the painter had fixed on his canvas, and then we saw the painting. The color was magnificant. But only a tiny fraction could see it— and in Van Gogh's paintings, color is the very essence of his work. With so many TV shows in trouble because of low ratings, all Two Boys Are Shot To Death KANSAS CITY (AP)-Two boys were shot to death in separate accidents Sunday. Stephen Marshall, 17, of Prairie Village, Kan., was shot through the head with 45.70 caliber frontier model Army rifle held by Joseph Alfonso Fernandez, 18. They were inspecting a gun collection owned by Fernandez, who said he didn't know the rifle was loaded. Darril Medlock, 10, Kansas City, was shot in the head with a .22- caliber rifle while sitting in a car with his brother near Lee's Summit, Mo. The rifle was held by Dale Medlock, 12. The boys, hunting rabbits with their father and a friend, got tired and went to the car to rest. Dale said he didn't know the rifle was loaded. ^/ sorts of efforts are being made to attract public attention to their weekly efforts. Historically, however, it has been demonstrated that the only way to build up a failing series is by producing better, more in teresting shows. This, economically, is impossible for most of the filmed series because of Hollywood's production line methods and the system of shooting programs so far in advance. Sometimes, however, a program is in a bad position because it is opposite very strong competition. Last year, a pretty good action-adventure show, "Hong Kong" was killed by strong competition from "Wagon Tram." This year, NBC moved its "Bonanza" out of its Saturday night line-up where it ran second to "Perry Mason," and put it into the Sunday schedules. Now the show has shot up to a top spot in the Nielsen ratings—even ahead of its former rival.
