OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Saturday, January 19, 1963 Saturday Notebook The recent school election in Ottawa sent one of our readers, Mrs. J. A. Lawrence to her scrapbook where she came up with a clipping of an editorial written by the great William Allen White of Emporia. But the clipping wasn't dated. On the back side was a story about a tiff between the great opera singer Madame Galli-Curci, and the Chicago Civic Opera. Also there was a story about the Ottawa Rotary Club and its president, Fred P. Martin. Checking with the keeper of the records of the Rotary Club, Glen Hayward, we learned Martin was president in 1923 and 24. This sent us to the old Herald records. There we learned that on Oct. 30, 1923, Ottawa voters, by a margin of 1,319 to 403. rejected a $250,000 bond issue to build a new junior high building. It wasn't until May 25, 1926, that they finally voted bonds for the present building. The Emporia editor's bit about Ottawa reads as follows: "The town of Ottawa, Kansas, has a population of 10,165, and more than half of that number belong to one or other of the 23 churches there. We doubt there is another town in the state with more than 50 per cent of its claimed population belonging to a church. "Well, what of It? The per cent of church membership of a town is no gauge of its worth ... A town stands or falls upon the intelligence and kindness of its citizens as manifest in its local institutions. The. question is not how many church members it has but rather, if one would know the town, one would ask these questions: To Your Good Health "How do you care for your children with schools? "How do you care for your youth with recreation and amusement? "How do you abate unemployment? "How do you care for the inevitable residium .of the poor ? "How do you provide for public sanitation? "What are you doing to prevent the spread of contagious disease? "How many books are there in your public library, and how often are they read? "Is life and property safe on your streets ? "The town of the big church and the little schoolhouse is a nuisance to American civilization, no matter what the church is. Ottawa may have the biggest church membership in Kansas, but it defeats school bonds more frequently than any other town in Kansas. And it has no YMCA building, no YWCA building, no county hospital, no county health unit, no welfare association to prevent unemployment and look after the poor. "A measley public library and no more public spirit than forty thieves. Moreover the vest buttons are all worn off the town bankers from crawling around on their paunches while robbers cart off their assets. (The First National Bank had been robbed a few days earlier.) Ottawa isn't a town. It is a congestion of traffic in the road between Emporia and Kansas City, complicated by high taxes six days in the week and a psalm- singing habit to salve its conscience on Sunday. And it has other faults." We wonder what Old Bill would have to say about Ottawa were he around today writing his pungent editorials. Hyperinsulinism Rare Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: What is hyperinsulinism? Is it possible for one on a high protein diet, using very little sugar and losing 25 pounds in four months, to suffer from such a condition? Would low blood pressure be the result?—Mrs. W.N. Hyperinsulinism often is a loosely-used term, and I wonder whether that is realy what you mean. Blood sugar is one of the most variable substances in the blood stream. It is, essentially, the energy producing material in the blood. It increases after eating, then gradually decreases. It rises sharply because of fright, shock or anger. It is lowered — used up, that is — by exercise. iiBiulin is necessary for t h e proper utilization of blood sugar. Diabetes (lack of enough insulin) allows too much sugar to accumulate in the blood. Hyperinsulin- ism is the opposite: Too much insulin, which in turn sharply reudces the amount of blood sugar to very low levels. It is not a common ailment but it does happen. A somewhat similar condition (often incorrectly called hyperinsulinism) is functional hypoglycemia, simply meaning low blood sugar. It comes about, and behaves, much differently, however. There's a strong nervous factor. I don't mean ordinary "nervousness," although that may be apparent, but a basic tenseness of the nervous Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Walter Cleland Jr., received a scholarship in a prize essay contest. David Whitlach, 14, of 610 S. Sycamore, was ill with whooping cough. Clarence Fanning was promoted to the job of fountain manager at the Crown Drug Store. 50 FEARS AGO Woodrow Wilson anounced that he was opposed to the holding of an inaugural ball in Washington when he assumed the office of the presidency. It was explained that his objection was because of the additional expense to the government, and not because he feared some dancers might perform the popular "turkey trot." The Herald carried a photo of a famed trio- Johnny Evers, Frank Chance and Joe Tinker. The three became famous for their double plays while with the Chicago Cubs. Many box scores in the sporting editions carried the notation on double plays — "Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance." Prayer For Today Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee. (Luke 18:24.) PRAYER: Our Father almighty, we thank Thee for Jesus, the great physician. To Thee we give thanks because He brightens the sky and lightens the heart, gives healing to the souls of men, and redeems all who believe in Him as Savior. Keep us this day in Thy love. In His blessed name we pray. Ameu. system, affecting organs over whch we have no voluntary control. Such people often have ulcers, loo. And patients who have had their stomachs removed frequently suffer from hypoglycemia because their food is not efficiently absorbed. Some liver diseases also account for hypoglycemia. So can glandular disorders of the pituitary or adrenals. Whatever the cause, those with hypoglycemia lend to be irritable when the blood sugar reaches low ebb. They may have headaches, certain kinds of spells, rapid heart beat, excessive perspiration. A "sugar tolerance test" is part of the diagnosis, coupled with a survey of the symptoms. While the two ailments are similar in that blood sugar is low, or becomes very low at times, the timing and pattern are distinctly different. A diet high in protein, moderate in fat and low in starch and sugar is used for hypoglycemia, because the protein, which liberates its food value slowly, provides a long, gradual supply of blood sugar. Starch, on the other hand, is converted quickly into blood sugar. The patient is uncomfortable from the quick rise and then abrupt decline of blood sugar. Yes, low blood pressure can accompany the condition since many such patients also have a relatively low thyroid activity.

The unfortunate feature is that Ross Barnett will now think he has won. Clinical note: A Neighbor is impressed by the effectiveness of flu shots. He had one last fall for the first time in his life. Earlier this month he was bedded by his first bout with flu since World War I days. The king of good losers, of course, is the one who accompanies it with a winning smile. It is dog license tag time again. How the tax-exempt cats must howl over it when they read about it each year. Cyclone Doin's Exams Are Over; Time To Shout By MARGARET WILLIAMS and ANNE MACHIN Review, Review, Review, Test, Test — this is the way the last five days went for the Cyclones this week. Thursday at 9 o'clock the first barrage of tests confronted the students. The testing continued until noon, leaving the afternoon and evening free for study for finals on Friday. Friday followed the same schedule of testing in the morning and left yesterday afternoon free for celebration. After reluctantly handing in their last semester exams, the Cyclones forgot all their troubles except the Cyclone - Turner game that night. Later Friday evening the girls gathered their food, their miles- a minute way of talking and their spirit at Margaret Williams' home. Their talk ranged from "What did you put down on question 7?" through "Wish I could vote for the school bond issue!" to "You are going to the game with who?" Along with the regular festivities, the girls celebrated their second anniversary. Two years ago, Margaret had the first-gathering, and ever since, the girls have had a potluck after every home game, taking turns at different homes. Many of the potluck girls appeared in the same black and white outfits. Most nervous were Lavonne Hobbs took the much- Drill Team. Last night during the halftime of the varsity game the 27 senior high girls, sponsored by Lorena Williamson, physical education teacher, performed drills and marches for the second time. Senior high Kayettes relaxed their teachers Thursday afternoon by serving them coffee and doughnuts. This break in test- grading came at 2:15 when Marcia Doman, Darline Diven, Linda Wheeler, Janie Bennett and Lavonne Hobs took the much- appreciated refreshments to the teachers. Using the freezing weather for something other than shivering, many Cyclones dug out their skates and took to the ice. Bonfires, hockey games with tin cans as pucs, shaky-ankled figure skating and hard falls seem to be the main features of this week end. Tonight Ottawa citizens, if they don't come to the junior high gym, will miss the most hilarious basketball game of the year. The OHS Pep Club is sponsoring a donkey baseball game complete with trained, live animals. Adding to the fun of the main event will be a trick mule act and a "hobby donkey derby." These mechanical "donkeys" will be ridden by Teresa Morrisey, Judy Daugharthy, Kathy Reusch, Mil ton Bland, Fred Irwin and Terry Wollen. Jockeys in a live donkey race will be Becky Lowrance, Betty Kirchner and Linda Showalter following this will be a garment race" by four adults. Climaxing the evening will be the faculty - businessmen's contest. Making up the faculty team will be J. W. Emerson, W. P. Downing, Orlis Cox, Ted Brill and Edwin Henry. Seeking to defeat ANNE the faculty will be Charles Queen, Chuck Williamson, E. E. Caylor, Bill Wheeler, Budge Reusch'and Bill Wright. The donkey basketball game is being held as money - making project for the Pep Club. The proceeds from the event will be re-invested in the school, as the Pep Club helps send the A-team cheerleaders to camp, pays for the crepe paper and paint needed for victory banners and also sponsors buses to take members to out-of-town games. Tickets are on sale at the door and from any Pep Club member for 50 cents, student price, and adults $1. An added incentive for any Pep Club member is the bargain of a free ticket for each five tickets she sells. After the second defeat of the bond issue, 196 sophomores realized that their hopes of graduating from a school with aisles in the classrooms, books in its library, hot gym showers, big, properly equipped science laboratories and room to dress in the boys' warm locker room were lost. Instead of the violent reaction to the second deprivation, a regretful, silent attitide was shown. Teachers and students alike felt as if that which was MARGARET rightfully theirs — the opportunity for better education facilities had been forbidden to them. For many students, the bad news seemed even worse after coming home Tuesday night from a victory in Olathe's new school. The Cyclones had won, yet lost. Glad to rid themselves of last semester's notes, tests and daily papers, OHS'ers are ready to embark into new half-year subjects and textbooks and unfamiliar chapters in full - year courses. But for tonight, their minds are full of donkey derbies and mule matches. Sell 12,363 Feeder Cattle DENVER (AP)-Ranchers sold 12,363 head of commercial feeders Thursday in the largest sale of the National Western Stock Show. The auction, surpassing 12 million, compared with last year'* sale of 19,000 head for $3.2 million. The 4,854 steer calves averaged $32.75 a hundredweight. The 4,199 heifer calves averaged $29.50.
