OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Monday, Jan. 14, 1963 Editorials Ellsworth's Courage President Kennedy has won a major victory in Congress. It was in the move to enlarge the House Rules Committee. In the past, this committee, comprised of a majority of Southern Democrats and Republicans, has prevented administration legislation from reaching the floor of the House for debate. To remove this obstruction, the administration tried and was successful in enlarging the committee so as to get more of its adherents on the powerfull committee. Joining the administration — giving aid and comfort to the opposition, so to speak — was this district's representative, Robert Ellsworth, Lawrence Republican. Ellsworth, and 27 other Republicans, jumped party traces to support the enlargement of the committee. He gave two reasons for his position. 1. He could not support the position This And That by jph of the Southern Democrats which have adopted an obstructionist position. 2. Defeat of the measure would bring down on the GOP the blame for all the failures of the present adminisration. Ellsworth was the only Kansas congressman to go against the party line. To do so must have taken a lot of thought and courage on his part. Not only do we admire this courage, we applaud his decision. Now, with the removal of the Rules Committee block, all measures urged by the administration have a better chance of coming before the entire House. Here they will be subjected to the scrutiny of all and undergo full debate. Also the will of the majority, not just of a few persons, will prevail. Whether you agree with Rep. Ellsworth or not, it's refreshing to have a representative who has courage and is capable of independent thought. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABO Monday Cars Come To Bermuda JPH BERMUDA — The two of us sat on the verandah of the 21 Club which overlooks Front Street from the second floor level. It was shortly after noon. Everyone sits at a table on the verandah of the 21 Club at this hour, unless he doesn't arrive until after all of the places are taken. In this event he goes inside for his libation, which likely will be a Bloody Mary, if it isn't a gin and tonic. Later he selects from among the 21 types of sandwiches which are all the 21 Club serves. If he wants more of a luncheon, he goes three doors down and two flights up to the Penthouse Club. Prevailing opinion at the moment is the Penthouse Club sets the best table of any restaurant on the islands. My companion's forebears have been in Bermuda for a long time. He is not from one of the really old families, however, like the Buttefields, the Coopers, the Triming- hams (there was a John Trimingham who led a local group to swear defiance to Cromwell and loyalty to Charles n) or the Trotts. The Bermudian gentry do not rise above commerce. To the contrary, most of them have been in the principal establishments for ages. Trimingham's is the leading apparel store, although admittedly a few prefer H. A. & E. Smith's. The Bank of N. T. Butterworth & Son, Limited, has been operating for more than a century. Coopers, all five brothers of them, have the china store. A Trott conducts a taxi service. My companion looked down on the stream of small cars, motor scooters, and bicycles flowing up and down Front Street. He sighed. "We resisted progress for a long time, but now, we have lost." He went on to explain that no more than 30 years ago there would have been a leisurely procession of bicycles and carriages below to cheer one's eyes. Now there are only a vestigial dozen of the horse-drawn carriages left, and the bicycle without I motor-assist has become exceptional. The now vanished narrow-gauge railroad, which did not op- erate its first train until 1931, was 25 years in wresting its charter from a reluctant legislature. He took from his pocket wallet an old clipping. It was a petition submitted by a group of distinguished Americans, Woodrow Wilson was among them, in the early years of this century. It read: "We, the undersigned, visitors to Bermuda, venture respectfully to express the opinion that the admission of automobiles to the Island would alter the whole character of the place in a way that would seem to us very serious indeed. The danger to be apprehended is chiefly from reckless tourists who would care nothing for local opinion or for the convenience and safety of others. It would, in our opinion, be a fatal error to attract to Bermuda the extravagant and sporting set who have made so many other places entirely intolerable to persons of taste and cultivation." The spirit of those petitioners, of whom Mark Twain was another, prevailed for many years. Until World War H, in fact. Then old Bermuda suffered a grievous defeat, at the hands of an ally, moreover. The two military bases here are among those MI which 99-year leases were obtained in exchange for those "50 overage destroyers" at the time when the United States was "the aresenal of democracy." When American personnel moved in, they insisted on bringing their cars with them. Under the circumstances the Bermudians could not make effective protest. After the war the American military remained and they still are here in generous numbers. So the Bermudians decided that, since automobiles had been thrust upon them, they had just as well have cars for themselves. To the disgust of old school Bermudians today those natives who can afford them like their cars fine. But the islanders have had a certain revenge on the American invaders. Today the only cars that can be imported are those of far less than even American size. Considering the narrowness and winding manner of the Bermuda roads, it is just as well. My companion sighed again, and his shoulders drooped in resignation. "Waiter," he said, "another gin and tonic." 1:00 4—Sea Hunt •—Huckleberry Round 13—yogi Bear 5:15 5—Whlrlyblrdi 6:311 4—Dragnet 9—Rebel 13—Gamer* Comer 6:45 5—Newi 13—Sporti — Dev M«lMM 5:S6 13—Weather 6:00 4-5-9-13—Newi «:10 4—Sports — Merle Harmon 6-9—Weather 8:15 4—Huntley-Rrlnkley Newi 4—News •—News B—Sports 13—Walter Cronklt* 6.25 6—Speak-Dp A:30 4—It's A Man's World •5-13—To Tell The Truth B—Dakotas 7:00 5-13—I've Dot A Secret J :UO 4—Saints and Sinners 5-13—Lucille Ball 9—Rifleman 8:00 4—Stoney Burke 5-13—Danny rhoraai »:HO 4—Biography—John L.

JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: Twelve years ago I had a "nervous breakdown" and was in a mental hospital. I was released after five months and have been well ever since except that I suffer a convulsion, at least one a month, although there is no sign of epilepsy in my family background. One doctor said that a portion of my brain has been damaged; that when it becomes tired I have a convulsion; then it relaxes again. He prescribed pheno- barbital, but I still have the convulsions, always early in the morning when in bed. Recently I went to a different type of practitioner who said my problem is the result of a nerve impinged by two displaced bones at the base of my skull. He told me to stop the phenobarbital. I did and had a very bad convulsion. He says to keep getting adjustments or treatments, but I still have a convulsion every month. Can you help me?—J.P. An interesting letter — also an example that the epileptic type of seizuer doesn't have to be hereditary. Whether anything connected with the nervous .breakdown played any part in the trouble, I will not attempt to say. However, parts of the letter which I omitted for brevity conform to the classic picture of epilepsy. One thing puzzles me: Why follow the practitioner's advice when he seems to have had less success than the doctor? He happens to belong to a group which is not permitted by law to prescribe medicine; hence it's not hard to see why he stopped the phenobarbital and urged his medicine- less methods. It seems to me, however, that the best answer is to have a specialist (internist or a neurologist.) make a more thorough study of your case. The always-in-morning pattern suggests the possibility of periods of low blood sugar having an effect This is something concrete that can be in- vestigated, and if it happens to be present, treatment can be taken for it. Another important step might well be to investigate whether a combination of anti-convulsant drugs may be used either along with or instead of the phenobarbital. Some such drugs have been developed in recent years, and have eliminated convulsions entirely in a great many cases. Dear Dr. Molner: I had my first smallpox vaccination 11 years ago, when I was 20, and five weeks later broke out with cowpoz for two miserable weeks. I assume that I am immune to smallpox the rest of my life and another vaccination will never be required. Is this true? Because of that other experience, I rather fear getting polio shots.— L.M.N. Are you sure it was cowpox, back then? That question aside, no, you cannot assume that you are immune for the rest of your life. That's why the United States insists Dial anyone entering this country show proof of having had a smallpox vaccination within the last three years. (Actually, immunity doubtless reains in at least fail- strength longer than three years, but that interval gives a good margin of safety.) I doubt if you need expect any more trouble from future smallpox vaccinations, but you should have booster shots. And there is no reason whatever to anticipate any trouble from a polio vaccination. Go have one and see! Note to Mrs. B.M.: I've never heard of tea from pecan tree bark as treatment for varicose veins— but I can see no possible reason for it to help any more than it would for a broken leg or whatever. With varicose veins, the tissues (of the veins) already have been damaged. No medication can restore them to their former stale. Hemorhoids can be cured! If troubled with fissures, fistulas, itching and other rectal problems, write Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., requesting a copy of the booklet, "The Real Cure For Hemorrhoids," enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover printing and handling. 6:55 4—Dailj Word 6:00 4—Continental Classroom (Physics) 13—Continental Classroom (Government) 6:25— 5—Breakthru - Religion 6:30 4—Operation Alphabet 13—College of the Air 5—Farm Fact* 7:00 4—Today 5—College of the Air 13—Rush Hour 7:30 6—Moment of Meditation 7:35 5—Cartoonland 7:45 5—King and Odle 7:50 9—Call to Worship 7:55 9—News 8:00 5-13—Captain Kangaroo 9—Columbia Lectures 8:30 9—Deputy and Fells 8:00 4—Say When 5~JacK La Lann* 9—Romper Room 13—Calendar 9:25 4—News 0:30 4—Play Xour Hunch 6-13—I Love Lucy 9—Divorce Court 10:00 4—Price Is Right 5-13—McCoys 10:30 4—Concentration 6-13—Pete and Gladys 9—Day In Court 10:55 9—News 11:00 4—Your First Impression 5-13—Love of Life 9—Jane Wyman 11:25 5-13—News 11:30 4—Truth or Consequences 5-13—Search For Tomorrow 9—Yours for a Song 11:45 5-13—Guiding Light 11:55 4—News 12:00 4—Cartoons 5-13—News-Weather 9—Ernie Ford 5—Speak Up 12:15 6—Sports 13—Farm Report 2:30 4—Accent 6-13—As World Turns 9—Father Knows Best 1:00 4—Merv Griffin 5—Password 9—Movie, "Girl in Every Port" 1:S<) 5-13—House Party 1:55 4—News :0fl 5-13—To Tell The Truth 4—Loretta Young 2:Z5 5-13-9—News 2:30 5-13—Millionaire 4—Best of Groucho 9—Seven Keys 3:00 5-13—Secret Storm 4—Match Game 9—Queen For A Day 3:2 5 4—News 3:30 4—Make Room For Daddy 5-13—Edge of Night 9—Who Do You Trust :00 4—Funtime 5--Cousin Ken's Karnival 9—Torey and Friends 13—News and Weather 4:15 13—Turban «:30 9—Mickey Mouse Club 5:111) 4—Sea Hunt 9- Yogi Bear 13—Bugs Bunny 5:15 5—Whirly Birds 5:30 4—Dragnet 9—Rebel 13—Dr. Ichabod 6:45 5—Newii 13—Sports 6:55 13—Weather 6:00 5-9—News 6:10 5-9—Weather 6:15 5—Sports 9—News 6:25 5—Speak Up 6:30 4—Laramle 5—Young People's Concert 9—Combat 7:30 4—Empire 5-13—Red Skelton 9—Hawaiian Eye 1:30 4—Dick Powell 5-13—Jack Benny 9—Untouchables • :00 5-13—Garry Moore 0:30 4—Engisn O'Toole 9—As Caesar Sees It 10:00 4-5-9-13—Newi 10:10 5-9—Weather 10:16 4—Johnny Carson 5—Movie, "All Through The Night' 9—Steve Allen 10:20 4-13—Sports 13—Lifeline 10:35 13—Hawaiian Eye 11:35 13—Peter Gun 11:45 9—Man From Cochise 12:00 4—News 12:05 4—Movie, "Dance Hall" 12:10 5—Speak Up 12:15 5—Movie, "Man - Proof" 12:45 9—News 1:00 —OAlmanac Newsreel 1:05 9—Faith for Our Timei 1:30 4-Unity Daily Word Tonight's TV Highlights On the "Biography," show this evening, Channel 4, 8:30, the story of a poor boy who made good in America will be told.

Newspaper Strike Headache For Him Record In U.S. Exports WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. producers shipped goods abroad at a record rate last year, but the cry from the Kennedy administration for more and more exports grows louder. To a man, administration officials say an increase is exports holds the really effective solution to the country's balance of payments problem. By Commerce Department estimates, exports swelled 4 per cent to $20.8 billion last year. This does not include military aid shipments. At the same time, imports rose 12 per cent to a record $16.4 billion. The favorable balance in trade thus dropped from $6.3 billion in 1961 to $4.4 billion in 1962. Even so, the U.S. deficit in its over-all balance of payments declined from the $2.5-biUion gap of 1961 between the flow of dollars in and out of the country. A decrease in private investments abroad helped reduce the deficit to somewhere around $2 billion. No one knows what the deficit will be this year. President Kennedy's once expressed hope of wiping it out by the end of 1963 seems doomed. Most officials believe, nonetheless, the gulf will continue to narrow—as long as sales overseas expand.
