| OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Wednesday, Jan. 1«, 1963 Editorials Reapportionment Moves The battle hasn't yet been joined in the Legislature over reapportionment, but the first gun has been fired. One of the first bills to be introduced calls for the reduction of the membership of the House from 125 to 105 which would provide for one member from each county. This goes as far as possible toward ignoring population and basing the membership entirely on geography. The purpose of those who have introduced this measure, it would seem, is not to have it enacted into law. At least not yet. By introducing it they have only presented a threat and put themselves into a favorable bargaining position. The proposition seems to be that if the Senate isn't redistricted entirely on the basis of population, but remains stacked in favor of less populated areas, then the present distribution of the House seats will be continued. It is a compromise which would pay a certain lip service to court directives, but still leave urban Kansans grossly under represented in the legislature. To Your Good Health Since the burning desire of the majority of the members of the legislature is to preserve the status quo and to continue to permit rural Kansas to write the laws for the city dwellers it is not unlikely that some such compromise as this will be the answer provided for the redistricting question. But if this be the outcome, the legislators will badly have misinterpreted the present temper of the courts, both state and federal. Increasingly the courts are dedicating themselves to the principle that in the Legislature one person's vote should have the weight of another's, regardless of his place of residence. So strong is the stand the courts have taken, the Kansas Legislature cannot successfully defy it. Any redistricting done in this session which does not provide' for truly equal redistricting, at least in the Senate, will be subject to attack in both state and federal courts. Recent decisions in comparable cases indicate strongly that the attacks would be successful. "Soot Spots" Harmless Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: Please write about "soot spots." I am 40 and noticed them four years ago. I have almost perfect vision but these spots bother, especially when I get nervous. I have been to three eye doctors and they say nothing is wrong, and that this condition is not unusual. My questions are: Will they cause you to go blind? Can they be treated? What causes them?—S.H. "Soot spots" is one t e r m. "Floaters" is another. And some annoyed possessors h a v e devised other ad sometimes unprintable names for them. They aren't worth fretting about. The eyeball, you know, is full of fluid and some tiny particle, a part of the fluid chemistry, becomes a "vitreous floater." This doesn't constitute a disease condition. If a spot is fixed in one place and doesn't float, that's another matter. It can represent an eye disorder. But not the floater. Will it cause blindness? No. Can it be removed or treated? No, again. They possibly occur a little more often, or seem to, anyway, in people who need glasses, but they can affect anybody. "S.H." betrays an important point in that they "bother me, especially when I get nervous." That's par for the course, too. You are nervous or tesne and notice the "floater." The more you try to follow them around in your field of vision, the more conscious you become of them. When something else happens to seize your attention, you forget about the floaters and don't realize they are there. I admit they can be as much of a nuisance as an itch. I've cussed at them myself when they've floated around while I was trying to study something through a microscope. Dear Dr. Molner: What is meant by sugar in By jph This And That This much is to be remembered about Oklahoma's recently deceased senior senator. He is the only Kerr in the history of the Senate who became top dog. If California hasn't yet become the populous state, within weeks it will, fornia has a striking thing in common with New York from whom it has wrested the title. Insularity. California thinks there is nothing east of t h e Rockies. New York can't see beyond Buffalo. most Call- . The year 1963 is starting most auspiciously. Two weeks of it have passed already and no new international crisis. JPH the urine? Could it be caused by things you eat, or by an infection?—M.M. Sugar in the urine means that diabetes has developed unless proved otherwise. Diabetes is not caused by anything you eat, although we know it occurs oftener in overweight people. The cause, in fact, is not known. In a case of mild diabetes, infection can cause sugar to appear in the urine when, otherwise, it might have been kept under control. The infection, however, does not cause the diabetes. If you have sugar in the urine, see your doctor for a blood sugar test and begin getting treatment. For a full discussion of the condition, send 25 cents in coin and a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope for my booklet, "Diabetes, the Sneaky Disease." Dear Dr. Molner: I would like to know how to get rid of freckles. I'm 13.—John M. You can rinse 'em with lemon juice or peroxide, with the hope of bleaching them, but it won't do much good. Neither will anything else. A few freckles are very attractive. Acne is one of the most terrible problems of growing up. If you are afflicted with this aggravation, or if you have children who are, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., for a copy of his helpful and comforting booklet, Acne—The Teenage Problem. Please enclose a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope, and 20 cents in coin to cover handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Vandals threw a large rock through a door glass at Rock Creek School. Warren Scott was here from Kansas City for a visit with his parents, Dr. and Mrs. W. J. Scott. Miss Faye Bondurant, third grade teacher at Hawthorne grade school, fell and suffered bruises. 50 YEARS AGO Severe dust storms were blowing in Western Kansas. John Crumley was seriously ill at his home. Hunters of the Ottawa area were cleaning shotguns. Ducks were beginning to start their flights north. Hunting was permitted during the spring migration season at that time. Prayer For Today Your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. (Luke 12:30.) PRAYER: Dear Father, we praise Thee that Thou dost take care of the fatherless and widows —yes, all Thy children. Teach us to look to Thee more trustingly. Use us to show to those in need of help any kindness we can for Thee. In Jesus' name we ask it. Amen.

Neighbor of ours says his debts would not bother him in the least if it were not for his obnoxiously obtrusive debtors. These days sons seem to average several inches taller than their sires. This results in most helpful things to the sires' pride and wardrobes.

Timing of the tax message was confirmed today by House Speaker John W. McCormack of Massachusetts after he and other Democratic congressional leaders met with Kennedy at the White House. McCormack, agreeing with the President that tax legislation is the top priority item facing Congress this year, said the House Ways and Means Committee will consider the administration proposals quickly. McCormack and Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana indicated that early attention to taxes may well delay committee consideration of Kennedy's controversial plan to provide medical insurance for the aged under the Social Security program.

Main CH 2-34901 Tommy Sands Up Down Real Fast By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Televison Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) -"Nobody ever had a faster rise and a faster drop in show business," said Tommy Sands, looking back from the wisdom of his 25 years. The good-looking singer is back on these shores after a two-year absence. He came to make a television film called "All Ashore," which will be an Alcoa Theater spinoff — that's trade talk for a series segment that is used as a prospect for a future series. If the pilot sells, and Revue has high hopes that it will, Sands and his wife, the former Nancy Sinatra, will be moving back to Hollywood. If not, they'll continue their New York residence. As he finished making the film, Tommy reflected on his past glories and future hopes. "Did I make any mistakes? Sure, lots of them. Boy, how I would have done things differently: "But who knows? — everything might have turned out exactly the same. I might have gone up and gone right down again. Maybe that's the way it was meant to be. "I quit school and came out here when I was 18. What I really want to do was to go to New York and study. But suddenly I fell into things and before I knew it, I was a big name. I hit it big for 5% years, then the bottom fell out." Sands' fame was based on the enormous but fickle teen-age following. When that disappeared, he was faced with the problem of building his career on a more stable foundation. After his marriage to Nancy, he abandoned his Hollywood haunts and went to New York. He figures he earned $00,000 a year at his peak, collected no more than $5,000 in 1962. "But you know something — we live very well on it," he said. "I'm happier now than I have ever been. I'm doing the things want to do, and that's important. I've been studying acting with Lee Strasberg for two years, so I could get to know what I can do. I know now, and I'm ready to work." If the series sells, he'll have his work cut out for him. He would play a restless young man who travels the world by freighter with buddy Chris Robinson; it's kind of a wet "Route 66." Part of Tommy's declaration of independence two years ago was to turn his back on his recording contract — "I got tired of doing songs I didn't like." The deal has now expired and he starts recording soon with ABC-Paramount.
