OTTAWA HERALD Page foot Thursday, Jan. 17, 1963 Editorials Not To Be Envied Not to be envied these days are the members of the Kansas Legislature. Besides the usual chores faced every two years in regular session, in their laps this session are a pair of interesting problems, reapportionment and legislative pay. The first was forced on the Legislature by the courts which have indicated members of the august body are a little behind the times in that they haven't followed the state constitution when it comes to setting up districts which give equal representation. It appears we will have first an Alphonse and Gaston situation with one part of the Legislature working generously on reshaping the other. No matter what the final plan, the outcome is sure to mean loss of membership for some of those now sitting in deliberation. The other unenviable task is that of To Your Good Health setting legislative pay. The electorate of Kansas at the last election generously gave the members of the Legislature the right to establish their own pay. At a first glance, one might think they are to be envied for this privilege. Truly, though, they are not. They can be generous with themselves, or they can be tightfisted. On one hand they face the wrath of the voters if they spend too much, or they face contempt if they are too tight, thus disclaiming their own value. Either way, the pay problem will result in new faces two years hence, joining those who ride in on changes brought about by reapportionment. So the present members are not to be envied. Their's is a tough job. And those wishing to survive had better have firm grips on their legislative seats if they want to continue in present offices. Television Log Vein Surgery Simple Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I have varicose veins in both legs but am afraid of surgery. I would have a lot of pain the first day after the operation. I am 58. Please send me a copy of "How to Deal with Varicose Veins." I enclose 20 cents in coin and a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope.—B.A. Your fears are completely normal for anyone who is facing what we call an elective operation, meaning the kind that can be done at the convenience of patient or doctor, or whenever a hospital bed is available. Indeed, I had one myself some time back. When my surgeon called on me the next day, I gave him some crabby comment about being "sick of lying in bed already." He said, "Yes, I know. If you're sick when you come in, you feel so good the day after the operation that it's wonderful. But if you come in feeling well, and the next day you're in bed, you feel terrible." All I could do was comment, "I guess you're right — you big bully." Or words to that effect. Aside from feeling a little bit sore (not as much as after a hard kick in the shins) and resenting being kept in bed, the first day after a varicose vein operation isn't too miserable. Recently I stopped in to see a man who had had an operation en his heart the day before. He was rather white, naturally. The incision was tender if he wiggled •round. But when I asked him how he felt, he grinned cheerfully and said, "Pretty good. And I'm glad the job is done." In his case it was a matter of life and death, •nd the surgery was five times as tedious as for Varicose veins. He went to the hospital for a serious problem and he felt quite comfortable the next day. But when you go for elective surgery feeling good at the time but a little sore and tender when you come back from the operating room, it's different. Yes, I know. But while there are some few painful operations that I'd just as soon miss, and by the law of averages probably will, I'm not worried about surgery if I need any more. It's not bad. To get to your case, the unsightliness of the veins, the risk of acute phlebitis and also of ulcers on the ankle and lower leg are factors. I'd rather have a day or two of soreness, and then know that the trouble is behind me. Byjph This And That It was a century ago this month when Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, but somehow news of the event has not fully penetrated Mississippi yet. There should be a great increase in situation comedy on television. Congress is back in session. Friend of ours says he much rather would stay at home, but he is taking his wife to Florida next week because he doesn't want her to feel lonesome from being all by herself. Four Hollywood film stars have died of cancer in recent weeks. Reason for suspicion here that California smog may have more serious consequences than smoking cigarettes. JPH Local man has lost his wife as the result of illness. She got sick of him and went home to mother. The NATO martial alliance is not unlike the marital alliance between a man and woman. If it weren't for the stresses, strains, and spats, there wouldn't be full enjoyment of the periods of serenity in between. It looks like an early spring. One merchant here already has bis Easter window in. Ttere b nothing to stop Kennedys, and now it is Jackie who has been elected to office. She has been voted Best-Dressed Woman of the year. It's similar to going swimming. You stand around and shiver and dread getting into the water. The first plunge feels cold. But then you're in and it's over, and you start hollering to the others on shore, "The water's fine." But they don't believe you until they've plunged in, too. So you won't really believe me. Not until after you've "taken the plunge." Dear Dr. Molner: Will you explain the difference between a rectal polyp and an enlarged papilla in this same area? Does a papilla become malignant?—Mrs. F.S. A polyp is an abnormal growth. A papilla is a perfectly normal thing. Rectal papillae are structures which project from an eighth to a quarter of an inch at the inside outlet of the rectum. (By definition, a papilla can be any normal projection, such as a nipple.) A polyp (an intestinal one, but this does not apply to a polyp in the nose) has a tendency to become malignant and hence requires watchfulness. Enlarged papillae, on the other hand, are swollen due to inflamation or irritation. Since almost any kind of tissue can become malignant, we can't say that papillae can't do so. However, a mere enlargement of a papilla isn't alarming. Of all the problems that pediatricians encounter in children, pinworm is the commonest. To learn the newest methods of treatment for this pest, write Box 158, Dundee, HI., for the booklet, "The Commonest Pest, Pinworm," enclosing a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Lee Shelden, 847 Ash, reported someone stole a spare tire from his automobile. Harold J. Lamb was elected president of the Ottawa Country Club. The marriage license business was slow in January, Probate Judge Clive Owen reported. 50 YEARS AGO D. F. Seevers was awarded the contract for a sewer project on King Street. Rev. Charles H. Day went to Wellsville to address a group of Odd Fellows at a banquet. Officer W. K. Langdon of the night police force was off duty because of illness. Prayer For Today The Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats with them." (Luke 15:2. RSV.) PRAYER: Our Father, we are thankful for the preservation of the words and deeds of Thy Son. We pray that we may heed His words each day, as we strive to become more merciful neighbors. In Thy blessed Son's name we pray. Amen.
