OTTAWA HERALD Page Ten . Thursday, Jan. 10, 1963 Editorials Wait Now, Pay More Later Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow. This is reverse English on a common saying. But how true it is. We delay until tomorrow what we should do today, fight the inevitable and adopt the attitude that if we close our eyes maybe whatever it is that bothers us will go away. How costly this delay can be was brought home to an Iowa town recently. Some six years ago two neighboring towns on the Mississippi, Clinton and Burlington, were warned to end pollution of the river. Burlington acted promtly. Three years ago it put a new sewage treatment plant into operation. Cost of the improvement was $2.2 million. Clinton delayed. Recently, after being This And That by jph threatened by the state, it let contracts on a plant similar to the one at Burlington. Cost of the Clinton plant will be $2.7 million. Here is a case where delay cost a half-million. You also could call it an object lesson. Penny-pinching often is felt where it hurts the most, in the pocketbook. A local application might be found in a number of areas, ranging from a new high school to more parking downtown to a new courthouse to remodeling of the downtown area. We can improve now. Or we can wait now, pay more later. The latter course also involves the chance that this community becomes less desirable a place to live. Typecasting Woes For TV Regulars By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP)-The most bitter complaint of successful television stars involves a hallowed Hollywood practice called typecasting. Hugh O'Brian, during the last two seasons of "Wyatt Earp," worried that he would never be able to get away from a horse and six-shooter. Ann Sothern feared she was stuck for life in a comedy role of private secretary. Raymond Burr did a few weeks of summer stock last, summer, playing the lead in "Critics Choice," just to prove he was somebody besides Perry Mason. The problem, unhappily, is not confined to those with important star names. It also afflicts a hardy, skillful and busy group of featured players. These are the television regulars who work so often that their faces are almost as familiar as those of the stars, but whose names get lost some- On Awakening In Bermuda BERMUDA — It had been a typical cold night for here. It had got down to 57, perhaps. I plugged in the electric heater. I looked at my watch on the bedside stand. It was 7:45. It was Christmas morning. I crossed the room and closed the window. The view out was cheering. A few feet ahead was the walled shore of an arm of the bay. Its blue water sparkled with the reflected rays of the bright morning sun which soon would have the temperature back up to the lower 70s again. Various small craft at anchor swayed gently on the surface of the water. The far shore was decorously lined with two-story structures with simple square +• lines and with plastered walls of m white or pastel colors. The rich * green hillside behind was sprinkled with more of them. Each had a dazEling white roof of coral rock blocks which stair-stepped up to the ridge. With this type of construction every drop of rain, which is the only source of water here, can be directed toward the cisterns below. Rising against the sky in the background to the left was the gray tower, built in Gothic style, of the Anglican cahtedral in Hamilton. It all looked very Christmas morningish, in a semitropical way. The scene would have made a most attractive greeting card. I passed into the other room of the cottage which was my quarters for the holidays. It has a small yard just wide enough for a wooden bench for sunning. It faces on a narrow lane down which occasionally a "motor-assisted bicycle," the popular form of transport here, passes with the noise of a disturbed blue-bottle fly. On the other side is a stone wall, painted a rich pink. It is broken by a flight of nine steps leading to the main guesthouse of Pomander Gate •nd to the swimming pool and garden beyond. The guesthouse is a two-story square structure with its walls of the same rich pink but relieved To Your Good Health by white shutters. In the basement is The Pub, the Gate's cozy cocktail lounge. I looked at my watch again. It was now eight o'clock. Breakfast would not be available for another half hour. This is an annoying detail of Pomander Gate's operation for those who have an incurable habit of early awakening. As an antidote to hunger, I reviewed bits of the evening before. There were those incidents in The Pub. The regular bartender had disappeared in keeping with the season. A usually staid Toronto lawyer was a volunteer substitute. He was forcing a second drink on a stoutish Boston couple. The wife was reluctant because on a second drink she said she sometimes got awfully cross at the expense of her husband. She took the drink, nonetheless. Then a bushy-haired young Scot walked cheerfully and unsteadily in from the lane. He tlirust a sixpence into the hand of each of us, thanked us for our invaluable services to him through the year past, swallowed a drink, and wobbled out again. Next the Boston woman proved she was an accurate judge of her own character. Awfully cross she got. Soon she swept out with her husband; she in deep tears, he in high anger. There was a call on some friends in the house at the end of the lane in response to an invitation for an appointed hour. When I arrived, the house was empty. Half an hour later an emissary of the host appeared at my place, indignant that I had broken my engagement. There had been a call on a widow in the end cottage as she and her five were opening their gifts. The scene was cheered by the addition of the first grandchild to the family circle. It was saddened by ,the thought that all of them had been condemned to the purgatory of Chicago. All this thinking brought around nine o'clock, but no breakfast. And there was nothing to be done about it since there is no telephone in the cottage. Not until 15 minutes later did Jeffrey, the waiter, appear with a tray. He had a smiling Merry Christmas but no apologies to offer. He whisked away. I sat down to pour myself a cup of coffee. The pot was empty. That's Bermuda. where in the long lists of credits. Such an actor is Murray Hamilton. We've all seen him many times—as a villain in "Gun- smoke," and "The Untouchables," as a psychopathic killer in Alfred Hitchcock shows, as a prosecuting attorney in "The Defenders." He's a pleasant-faced man of 38—looks younger—whose principal career problem is versatility. "I think that's really hurting," he said. "Once a producer puts you in a role, he never seems to see you doing anything else. After I was first cast as a heavy on 'The Untouchables,' I couldn't ever persuade them that I could also do something else. I could go on doing psychopathic killers forever for another producer." Hamilton is determined to break the mold, regardless of its penalty in terms of income. He will soon emerge as costar in a Broadway comedy, "The Heroine," whose opening is held up by the New York newspaper strike. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Thursday Hard To See Dope Signs Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: What signs should one watch for to determine whether an acquaintance is addicted to dope?—Mrs. A.B. Contrary to fiction (written or word-of-mouth) addiction to narcotics is not easy to detect in its early stages. Deprived of drugs, addicts become nervous and sometimes even violent. But they return to normal behavior just as rapidly, once they get drugs. Pupils of the eyes are usually small; however, there is so much variation in people that this is hardly a reliable sing; it's no more than a helpful indication at times. As an addict becomes more dependent, he ultimately turns to injecting drugs into veias of the arm with a hypodermic, and then the needle scars are a giveaway. Dear Dr. Molner: Our two-year-old grandson speaks a few words, but nouns only. No verbs. His hearing is very sharp, and he has a good memory and seems bright. He mimics very much, and communicates most of his wishes by pointing to what he wants, or gesturing. We are very worried that he may be mute.—A.B. Mute, when he speaks words? Of course not. I think you're expecting too much from him. There's a lot of difference in the age at which youngsters decide to talk. I've even known of youngsters that didn't talk at all—not even nouns— until about three years old. And at least one such hasn't stopped talking since! If a logical - minded baby can get what he wants by pointing, why should he talk? Overprotection and anticipation of a child's wants may, indeed, slow up their need to speak, but I don't know that this necessarily means any harm in the long run. The best way to promote speech in a child is to talk to him in adult language (but simple words, of course) and he's likely to try to imitate it. When the child is a good mimic, that helps. I wouldn't worry about this youngster. Dear Dr. Molner: My eyes become so swollen from sleeping that sometimes it is noon or later before they subside. If I just lie on the bed for a few minutes, or if I sneeze, they swell. I have had my eyes checked.—Mrs. E.B. Swelling can come from eye diseases, such as glaucoma, trachoma, conjunctivitis, etc., but you've had your eyes checked. The tissues of the lids are thin, so any slight accumulation of fluids can make obvious swelling. Hence kidney or liver disease with fluid retention can be a cause. Still further, severe hypothyroidism (low thyroid activity) is accompanied by baggy skin and swollen lids. So is trichinosis (caused by worms not killed by thorough cooking of pork). Allergy is entirely possible — sensitivity to feathers in the pillow, or to some material in the bed clothes. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Russell Crites, 808 S. Mulberry. The baby weighed 7 pounds, 13'/2 ounces, and was given the name Cathryn. Mrs. W. C. Harding was named drivers' license agent for Franklin County. Herb Sheldon was ill with a sore throat. 50 YEARS AGO Merle Ediiigton became assistant ticket agent at the Santa Fe railroad station. The hide business was reported as brisk in Ottawa. Most of the hides received were skunk. I'. M. Happy, Creecle, Colo., was here for a visit with his father, T. M. Happy, 749 Locust. Prayer For Today Lord, save us: we perish. (Matthew 8:25.) PRAYER: Heavenly Father, we thank Thee for Thy watchful care. We ask Thy forgiveness for disobedience and neglect of Thy commands. Grant us power to do Thy will. We thank Thee for salvation through Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen. 5:00 4—See Hunt 8—Quick Draw McGraw 13—Magio Rancb 5:15 5—Whlrly Birds 6:.S() 4—Dragnet 9—Rebel 13—Dick Harp 5:45 5— News.
