OTTAWA HERALD Page 4 Editorials Monday, April 23, 1962 Grass Roots Opinion A monthly magazine, The American Press, circulated in the newspaper trade, has come up with an interesting survey of editors across the country. The survey was sent to 1,186 editors. Here are their opinions: They are strongly opposed to government-sponsored medical or hospital aid to aged, 20 per cent for, 78 against, 2 no opinion. They oppose federal aid to education, 15 per cent for, 81 against, 4 no opinion. Thej, are against a department of urban affairs, 25 per cent for, 74 against, 1 no opinion. They oppose a fallout shelter program, 14 per cent for, 83 against and 3 no opinion. They want nothing to do with withholding tax on dividends, 31 for, 66 against, 3 no opinion. To Your Good Health It would appear that these formulators of opinion around the nation would be a good sampling place to discover the voice of the people. However, at the risk of committing heresy, it gives us cause to wonder whether those answering the survey were giving opinions based on what their readers want. It must be remembered that newspapers are businesses. They pay taxes, wages and salaries and attempt to operate so that at the end of the year there will be a little left over in the form of profit. Most of the proposals listed above would result in a reduction of the newspaper profits. So like other businessmen, the editors polled evidently have an eye on the costs of staying in business. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABO Monday Housework Can Be Easier Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Can housework be made easier for a woman with heart trouble? Yes. There are some tricks to it, of course, and these same tricks can be used by people who don't have heart trouble. This letter brought the matter to mind. Dear Doctor: Would a rheumatic heart lesion make ironing difficult: I can't seem to do it without getting dizzy and feeling odd.—MRS. R.L. Ironing, compared with other household chores, can be heavy or light work — depending on how you do it. Is the board too high or too low? Do you stand up, or do you Bit on a stool? Do you keep at it too long at a time? Does the room get uncomfortably warm? Do you do much bending, to pick things up? (This last could account for the dizziness.) If you have to bend over the board, or stretch to reach it, you are wasting energy and hence putting a needless burden on the heart. The same is true if you stand up when you might better sit. Or if you walk across the room every time you have finished ironing a garment to hang it up. All wasted effort! Make your head save your heels. Have a table beside the board, for finished ironing. Don't run back and forth. Place the things to be ironed all in one pile, or basket, on a bench or chair co you can reach them without bending. You'd be surprised how much effort can be saved. In fact, the American Heart Association and research groups have found that simple but thoughtful changes in a kitchen can save miles of walking in a few days. If the things you use often arc near at hand, you needn't stoop nor stretch to reach them. "Lazy Susan" turntables In a cupboard help save effort. When setting the table, load a small cart with the silver, china and linens, and you will make only one trip. Use the same cart when cleaning — trundle your supply of cloths and other materials along with you. These ideas, we know from experience, sometimes save so much effort that semi-invalids have found they were able to do all their housework without becoming unduly tired. Byjph This And That Now that it has been delivered to her by air, courtesy of MATS, there is no fitting name for the gift horse Jackie Kennedy received in Pakistan except Pegasus. It is a pleasure to enjoy the average national income because it gives you so many more people to be superior to than envious of. . Only once in his life has a neighbor of ours "y>uyht a suit with two pairs of Irsns- ers. The first time he wore it he ripped the coat. . When y o ur correspondent was in high school the principal also taught American history, coached the football team, and ran « bakery on the side. This helps explain why taxes then seemed so remarkably low. Even though he has been courting Liz Taylor in Rome, actor Richard Burton has cabled his wife in London that he still loves her. And he probably will continue to right up to the day his divorce becomes final, Radio broadcasting today has become so utterly standardized that almost any day's program may be comprehensively loggcxl with: News on the hour; Records in between. Why & it most persons who argue in favor of a "preventive war" against the Soviet Union call it "preventative"? Spokesmen for the industry say that taxes on tobacco are enough to finance the space program. So the miracle ingredient that powers the ICBMs must be cigaret smoke. Sounds amazing? Yes, but it's true. For when we stop and think about the way we ordinarily do things, we often find that we have been wasting five or ten times the amount of energy that is really needed to do the job. Dear Dr. Molner: I have a "once-a-day cough. A throat specialist said he thought it was bronchiectasis. Is there a cure? Is an operation necessary?—MRS. B. Bronchiectasis is a puddling of phlegmy material in a dilated portion of the bronchial tubes. Often infection accompanies it. Symptoms are cough, phlegm (sometimes blood - tinged), some times fever. Positive diagnosis can be made by X-ray methods. Treatment varies with the severity. Antibiotics and "postural drainage," meaning taking time occasionally to lie with the head lower than the chest to clear the passageway, are often adequate treatment. In any case, nose, throat, dental or other infections above the bronchial region, should be eliminated. In severe cases, surgery sometimes is required. NOTE TO J. B.: There are quite a few new surgical techniques for the restoration of hearing. They can help some people. While your own ear specialist may not be a surgeon, get his opinion concerning an operation before spending the money to dash off to one of the big medical centers. What are ulcers? How should they be treated? What can you do to help rid yourself of ulcers and stay rid of them? For aaswers, read Dr. Molner's helpful 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 20 cents in coin to cover cost of printing anc handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Orlis Cox was preparing to take Ottawa High School trackmen to the Baker Relays.

Soto stood forlornly in the dust, staring at his millions of little wilted palm trees—row after row of them. They represented his biggest dream. From rags to riches and now, almost overnight, back toward rags. "That's the story of my life," he said. "About the time you think you have it made, the sky falls in on you." Gone, he says, is his hope of putting miniature palm trees and other tropical plants into homes all over the United States and Canada—of getting Americans to plant tropical gardens in their homes—and of making himself a mint in the process. "Its all down the drain," he said, "five years of work and investment shot. We're washed up." Until a week ago the ex- Arizona farmer considered himself rich and by most folks' standards, he was. He is one of the largest landscape contractors in the business, lives in a home worth several hundred thousand dollars with a sweeping ocean view. He hoped to net at least a million dollars a year from indoor palm trees sold through su- Public Sessions Wed. and Fri. 7:30 to 10:00 Sat. nights 8:00 to 11:00 Ottawa Roller Rink Sun.

He employed 100 people to pack- ,ge the 30-inch palms in airtight wrappers, sold more than 100,000 rees last year sampling public .emand. He hoped to sell palms t a 10,000-a-day clip. He waited or his palms to reach the age )f 4 years, when they could be old. The rains were heavy this year. iVeeds grew between the rows of hickly planted palms. Last month he 30 acres was sprayed for weed control. Five weeks ago trees bean to wither, Soto says. One month later: 100 per cent loss. Nobody knows what went wrong, Soto says. Experts are rying to find out. He tried the 3ne thing specialists said might save the crop: flooding with water. It made the young trees die even faster. Insurance pros- >ects are up in the air, he says, t would take four years to recoup in any case. Soto estimates he lost 8 to 10 million little palms worth $3 million wholesale. "It was a gamble, I know," h« says, "but it looked good. Imagine being able to buy a nice palm in New York City for $1.49." Soto, 41, expects to go out of the landscaping business now. His capital and financing depended on the trees, he says. "I started 19 years ago with $250," he says philosophically. "Now I guess I'm back to $250 again." A Son For Elinor BURBANK, Calif.
