PACE 4 MONOAV, MAV 12, 1969 CUM LAUDE! I pledge allegiance fo the Flag of he United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under C indivisible, with liberty and tice for all. Graduation Time Nears \ Within the next several weeks, h u n d r e d s of Madi- 'fon County young people will reach an i m p o r t a n t mile- ·jlone -- graduation from Infill school. · They will receive diplomas UIK m a r k an end of "public schooling and the beginning of p o t e n t i a l l y c r e - ative, productive lives. M a n y will go on to college, others will e n t n r the Armed Forces or move d i r e c t l y into the world of business and i n d u s t r y . While the thoughts of relatives and friends are centered in congratulations and high hopes for succi's.s of the graduates, i t would not be amiss if the younj; men and women gave a few minutes' thought to the sacrifices their elders have made to help them reach this important milestone in their young lives. Those sacrifices are frequently individual sacrifices -- sacrifices made within the family to make it possible for the youngsters in the family to complete t h e i r public schooling in the most comfortable circumstances possible. Those sacrifices are always collective s a c r i f i c e s -- sacrifices made in the form of growingly higher taxes. There is no a d u l t , we're sure, who makes these sacrifices in a n y t h i n g but a s p i r i t of pride and satisfaction, For there is no cause for which sacrifices arc more e m i n e n t l y worthwhile -- provided, of course, t h a t the young people of today utilize their o p p o r t u n i t i e s to the fullest possible e x t e n t , t h a t they remember that schooling is, in fact, more t h a n something society owes them, that they recognize the right to the finest available education is one of the mosi. precious gifts of a democracy. Many Moonlets, Maybe Asronomcrs have long suspected t h a t the earth is orbited not merely by the effulgent moon but by a number of moonlets not hitherto detectable. It is intriguing news that a means of detection now becoming available hints at the presence of such objects whirling about our planet. These hints are based on painstaking work done by a scientist named John Bagby and reported in the journal Icarus. Bagby analyzed the orbits of 150 manmade earth satellites, and found that in 55 of them there were marked shifts from time to time -- in one case a bounce of 75 miles down and back from a 745- mile high point. This was in itself a discovery, but Bagby's tentative conclusion is even more interesting. He believes these orbital aberrations are caused by the gravitational pull of those a f o r e m e n t i o n e d moonlels. So maybe, in addition to the f a m i l i a r moon, there are 10 or so moonlets whizzing out there. And maybe some day an astronaut will see one passing by. Bubble-blowing Progress Not all scientific research is of an esoteric n a t u r e , and not all scientific journals are dull reading. "The study of soap bubbles has fascinated some of the most outstanding scientists for the last few centuries," writes a member of the Research I n s t i t u t e of Temple Univ'ersiy in a recent issue of Science, the magazine of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He reports that he has successfully blown bubbles over 60 centimeters (about two feet) in diameter and 100 liters (about 26 J /4 gallons) in volume and with a lifetime of over two years. No ordinary soap bubbles, these. For those interested in the details, they were produced from b u b b l e solutions improved by the a d d i t i o n of water-soluble synthetic organic polymers such as polyviny] alcohol or polyoxyethylene. They also required a mess of complicated laboratory appartus and, undoubtedly, a lot of wind. BOYLE'S COLUMN Jim Bishop: Reporter Chm Reds Err If They Call Czech WorfccM-s 'Allies' By RAY {.'KO.MI.KY WASHINGTON (NK.V. - Tho Soviets may h a v e miscalculated badly in Czechoslovakia. They have assumed the opposition to Moscow rule was by a grojp of headstrong individuals. In their purges in Prague, (he Russians have been concentrating on removing party "liberals" and their backers. Thsy are reportedly moving in 0:1 university students, professors, newsmen, playwrights, novel- isls. magazine writers. The Russians have been assuming, according ;o reports, t h a t once this liberal cms: is removed, loyal Czech labor unions will offer a strong base of men ano! women agreeable to obedience to Moscow. Xo doubt a sizable core of Czech intellectuals is harshly opposed to Soviet dictates. Rut a careful study of data now arriving Irom Czechoslovakia suggests the Czech workingman may turn out to be an even more bitter antagonist. There is evidence union leadership is honeycombed w i t !i men strongly devoted to sovereignty and self - determination for Czechoslovakia. T h e y represent five million members. When union members are unhappy, Czech history shows, factory production suffers. There are slowdowns. \Vork- manship is sloppy. The economy skids and slides. It was natural for Soviet leaders to assume the unions would he on their side. In 1D48, convinced by Soviet propaganda that with Communist rule workers would run the factories, unions organized the people's militia and were perhaps [he key force in the Russian Communist take-over. In Ihe years t h a t followed, the trade unions were put carefully under Communist p a r t y control. They have obediently carried out Moscow's wishes. Most union leaders are from the proletariat. Here Are Conclusions For Jumping At By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) _ Jumping to conclusions: Work, not alcohol or drugs, has always been the most popular narcotic in America. We are a work-addicted people, as witness the number of men who fear compulsory retirement at 65 because they feel they'll he lost without the stimulation provided by going to a daily job. It seems like years since we've seen an old-fashioned hairpin. Don't women ever wear them anymore? Strawberries and modern children have one t h i n g in common: Ihe bigger they grow the more tasteless some of them become. The height of boredom comes when a fellow suddenly discovers he has been talking to himself--but not bothering to listen. The more scientific we become tne more stubbornly we slick to our timeworn superstitions. If you put a targe ladder across a sidewalk, eight out of 10 passers-by will walk around rather than under it. The two who do walk under it aren't any less su- perstititous than the others-they're just probably showoffs. People who crave the limelight go through endless maneuvers lo become Ihe center of attention at a cocktail parly, but the simplest of all ways to do il is to get an attack of hiccups. The suspicion arises that many folks who attend church today do so because il is the one public place left where they run a minima) danger of bein# mugged. There are two gootl reasons why housewives live longer t h a n their husbands: U ) they can flop down on a couch any time during the day when they .ire tired, and (2) they avoid the EtlabliihU March ?J.

NOW YOU KNOW By Unilctl Press l i i l r i n n l i n n n l The chuckwnlla lizard hides llsclf inside a rocky crevice when frightened, where il jji- flalcs its lungs to wedge itself tightly (or protection. By all the evidence the unions were a "sa:'c" group. Bul things had been changing inside the labor movement. The factories were not taken over by the workers; they were taken over by the stale. Members began lo believe Ihe unions were being subvened. Union leaders and r a n k - a n d file members became disillusioned. There has been a strong push from w i t h i n to fight the "subservience" of the unions to the party. Union leaders have become the strong hackers of t'ne "liberalization' 1 movement ths- flourished before the Russian invasion. Reports indicate union membership :hus f a r . at least, has not been intimida'.cd by the Soviet occtipalion or tba clampdowns by secrel police. It can safely be said ttiat if the unicn stance continues -and grows -- it will be exeed- itigly difficult for Soviet a r m i e s to control Czechoslovakia, however much force they use. OUR ALMANAC By United Press International Today is Monday, May 12, the 132nd day of 1069 with 233 to follow. The moon is between its last quarter and new phase. The m o r n i n g stars arc Venus, Mars and Saturn. The evening stars are Mercury and Jupiter. On this day in history: In 17«0 the entire Continental A r m y of 2,500 soldiers surrendered to British Commander Sir Henry Clinton at Charleston. In l!)37 George VI was crowned King of England, succeeding his brother Edward VIII who abdicated to m a n y American divorcee Wallis War- fielil Simpson. In IBM Soviet authorities in Berlin announced the end of the blockade of that divided German city after 323 days in which a g i a n t Allied airlift had supplied West Berlin. In 1063 President John F. Kennedy ordered troops into the vicinity of Birmingham, Ala., a f t e r rioting. A thought for (he dav: Thomas Carlylc said, "Adversity is sometimes hard upon a m a n . But for one man who can stand prosperity, there are a hundred who will stand adversity." B A R B S . . . For some the daily ."rind is longer than for others--at the pencil sharpener. In no living birds are teeth present, with (be exception rif the ostrich who .swallowed Ihe zoo-keeper's upper plate. A lew weeks ago 1 wrote a story about a stranger who h;is boon in a m e n t a l i n s t i t u t i o n for a long timo. Ho wrote a note which is as sane aiut sound as any which a r r i v e in the regular mail. My Inuich was t h a t New York Stale had filed him in n nice green cabinet and forgo', him. )le h;td 110 way cm I have some friends in l i t t f f a lo and I put the arm on them to check him out. The lop man is Cy King. Executive Edilor of the Courier Express. He's a callous monster with a heart about as hard as apple sauce. Mr. King is aware t h a t there is always a chance t h a t some poor soul may be (iled away for life wiCiin a dismal assortment of grav stones. The man's original note to me began: "I am Jewish, 40, and a menial patient. 1 have been confined in two hospitals for a total of eight years and four months. I face a lifetime of imprisonment. My only crime against society is having been born schizophrenic. I am in Buffalo, snd to say t h a i Ihe sta!e m e n i a l hygiene law is u n - f a i r \vouhl be an ui:dcrs:atc- ine:;!. " I t i ; downright evil. T h e courts are closed to me. There is no lawyer who is interested in the plight of an obscure mental patient. I have never hurt anyone. And yet. 1 am no longer a cilizen of New York Stale or the United States . . . Occasionally, we hear of a mental patient who commits an act of violence. No one ever bears of all the hundreds of thousands of former patients who live out their lives quietlv. "I have an I.Q. of 130. All I want is to live my life out lawfully in a home my father owns. The courts do no; have a right to pass out a life sentence to one who has never committed a crime. Hoping for a positive response." My reply: I w a n t you lo read the rest of this column carefully. No one -- even Ihe doctors- opposes your chance for freedom. Everybody is in your corner. You write with f i n e logic; even ihe editors were i in pressed. In Buffalo, Cy King ( w h o owes you nolhingl sat behind the hard wood and hard-headed desk of the editor and sent Dom Merle nut to check your condition. If there is the slightest chance that you would be happy in our society. King desired (o give you a fair shake and mure. ' Now you are going to have to listen, for a moment, and I hope, accept the findings of .a first - class reporter. Here they are: "Memo: The man is now a m e n t a l patient in a VA h o s p i t a l . His f a t h e r is a litlle hard to understand. Bui. according to Ihe falher: 'My son started acting slrange after finishing .1 two-year army hitch in 19Jf). He 'worked for a couple of yesrs t a k i n g care of experimental animals. About 1954, he committed himself to a state institution and in 1956 was transferred to another.' "Since he's been hospitalized, he comes home periodically on 72-hour passes. While he is home, he stays in his room mostly, typine letters, orobably a few' !o J : m Bi.-hop. The f a t h e r says lhat he won't show anyone the 1 letters. "Father w a n t s him home for the Passover Holidays, bul he liasn't got an okay from the hospital. He judges t'ne future by what freedom the doctors give his son a week or two before. It amounts to waiting,' and hoping. "The father is a retired dis- Iributor of evening News. He Un't bitter about his son being c o n f i n e d ; figures he will be discharged when the doctors feel he is ready. "At ore time, the father told me, a psychiatrist recommended brain surgery. (Author's note: This is probably a frontal lobotomy. a chancy operation sometimes executed by slicing part of tiie memory section of the brain by cutting under the eyelids.) The f a m i l y decided against the operation. "I to'.d the fat'ner that I may call him back alter this week to see if the son is coming home on a psss . . . . Dom Mer-e." From all of this, to my correspondent I would suggest that you are not quite ready. We are in a society -- a culture, if you pl°a?e -- in which the rules of behavior are ironclad. Slay a little bit longer until Ihe doctors are ready to send you home permanently. The time will come and I will try to be in Buffalo lo shake your hand. Please bear in mind that, even though the years are dismal and endless for you, they are i n f i n i t e l y wor-e (or your father. You are not to be pitied. He is ON THE LINE ... by Bofc Ccmid; n » Chew-Tobacco Features Outlined By Publicist NEW YORK - Friend of mine sent me four packages of M a i l Pouch and a brsas gabboon, for Mother's Day, presumably. Mother has been trying to kick the cigarel habit. My friend does public rela- lions for chew-icbacco. Madison Avenue doisi not live on bread alone. Chew-loUic^c is one of the perimeter products that is making money these days when the American Cancer Society's and other drives against cig- arets are alarming a great number of smokers. Pipe tobacco has also benefited. Even s n j f f , which I thought went out with Senator Tcm Connally. What ihe above says, in effect, is Ida 1 , cigarets may be waning but the tobacco industry in general is not. Addicts simply move to another realm of :t, as lliey moved from straight lo filters. Ikrd to believe, but liiere are no'.v more chewers in the cities than on the farms. This c*n he [raced to urban migration, to begin with, and an increase in the number of "no smoking' 1 signs in plants and offices. Doctors who once chain-smoked "Wcy, mam--vill you make me a blank Hog of anarchy?" and were hailed by at lo.'st one f a m e d cigare: f i r m a s prime users of its product now have taken to U;e "chaw'' by (he thousands. They can't very well counsel a patient to give up cigarets Mile blowing cig- arel smoke in his kisser. C.iew-loixcco is grown chiefly in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The Northern leaf is heavier t h a n the Southern and border stales; more like cigar tobacco. It is aged for a year, a p r o c e s s called, "natural sweating." When ready for processing. :t is steamed for an hour to moisten it and for the removal of stems. Then it is doused wild to:- orice, sugar, salt and glycerine (not nitro), permitted to marinate for 12 hours, and (hen dried under hca! up to 233 degrees. Befcre it is stuffed i n t o pouches, or wtytevcr it is stuffed into, tcday's chew-tobacco U run under detectors that spot foreign objects. Several foreign subjects have commented on the "chaw" in the past. Amerigo Vespucci, the fellow who gave us our rrame, noled in his diary during a trip lo wha'. is now Venezuela in H98, "Indians . . . chewing a green herb which they chewed like o t t l e to such an extent tSiat tfi3y could scarcely talk."

D I I K N ' AND "WHV?" Children from 3 to 5 may often ask us the question "Why?" sbotil all sorts of Iliings we do or say. Wisely, we answer them as well as we arc able, and thereby encourage them to reason more for themselves. For a number of years, I have been preparing for a cbildren'3 magazine hundreds of simple questions which aim lo cause young and older children lo figure oul for (hemsekes "Ihe reason why?" Let me relay, by permission, a few sampbs of Ihese |ues- lions. Creative p a r e n t s a n d teachers may easily niiike up o t h e r questions as good as these. Answers to these ques- tiors may come out of the child's own head, figured out f r o m h i s earlier remembered experiences. WHY Why don't all minnows grow Into big fish? Why are pets not allowed in food stores? Why docs a button have two or more holes? Why are Ihere fences aro'jnd many fiel'.is? Why should you not t a l k with your mouth full of food? Why are there no fish in some streams? The Doctor Says By Wayne G. Drandstadt, M.D. TAKING IODINE IN MILK WILL NOT HELP GROWTH A boy in his early teens writes that lie has read lhat il (hrce times a day be would drink a glass of milk to which two drops of iodine are added he would grow taller. He wonders w (let ner this is Irue or whether an operation would he necessary to nwke him g£in height. I get many similar lelters. The milk will help him grow but will not in any way modify his nomral growth pattern and the iodine will not help at all. Since there are several causes for short stature he should first find out what ojuse accounts for his lack of height. Some slow starters make unexpectedly rapid gains in ideir late teens without anv treatment at all. I certainly would not advUe an operation. Humon growth hormone it'mulstes growth in hormone - deficient dwarfs but is of use in boys who do not fit tills category. Others between the ages of 3 and 17 have increased their rate of growth by taking the hormone, oxandrolone, bul this should be done only under medical supervision. One should always remember (bat being =liort has its own special advantages at timei. Q -- My daughter, 3, has juvenile eciema. Our doctor says there is no cure for it. Can the itching be controlled? A -- It is true that in most cases control rather than cure is the rule. Even this may be difficult. The first step is to d s- eover the offending allergen so lhat it can be avoided. Skin infections are commonly associated with eczema and, when they occur, must be treated promptly with antibiotics. Local applications of beta- methasone vulerate are very effective in reducing i n f l a m m a - tion and thereby indirectly allaying the itching. Instead of soap a n d water. y o u r daughter's skin should he bathed wl-th a fat-free lotion (Cetap^il). Q -- Could u child's temperature vary a degree or more from early morning to mid-afternoon if no infection is present? A -- If a n o r m a l c'.iild is very active an elevation of ] to 1.5 degrees is no! unusual and should not cause alarm. Most such rises in temperature go unnoticed because the wise mother doesn't routinely take the temperature of a child who appears to be well and happy.
