OTTAWA HERALD Pour •From Our Readers Monday, Jan. 21, 1963 Those Of Little Faith ; Regarding the recent school bond election, it is interesting to note that we ;elect responsible, intelligent persons to -our board of education and then refuse -to accept their judgment or consider the :fact that they are undoubtedly much bet.'ter informed regarding school needs than ;are the average citizens. . No criticism of the project, but it .'seems that we went for a little so-called •'free money from Washington to straigh- ',ten out our crooked river. But education isn't important since we know who is going to pay for it. : As much as I hate to admit it, the ultra-conservative "no" voters are giving President Kennedy just the ammunition he needs to federalize schools. Perhaps he is right in that we are not willing on a local level to support our education system properly. May I suggest that "no" voters who think they have a better solution to the problem that they send their suggestions to The Ottawa Herald for public scrutiny and criticism. I believe they will find that the board of education can point to legitimate weaknesses in most suggestions. Some board members have con- To Your Good Health vinced me that some of my bright ideas had all ready been investigated and proved impractical. Unless memory fails me, the late Fred Harris, a prominent Ottawa attorney, often expressed the idea that the greatest product of Kansas is not wheat, etc., but future citizens. Our average per capita federal income tax is $600 per person. The cost of this school bond election is peanuts by comparison, plus the fact that we probably can use cheaper money every year to liquidate the debt. A well-educated boy or girl has much greater value than peanuts. We may be Kansas hayseeds, but let us show outsiders that we are progressive hayseeds with a sense of value for the basic needs of our community. We have some acquaintances in Kansas City, Kas., who have their personal mail sent to Kansas City, Mo., offices because they don't want their friends from other states to know that they live in Kansas. It seems too many outsiders don't have a good image of Kansas. I hope that we will not let this image become valid because we truly are unprogressive. Charles D. Carey Jr., Ottawa. Protection In Flu Shots : By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: At this time of year people -catch colds, and Asian and regular flu. All the .medical articles I have read seem to say that 'once you have these illnesses no medication will •cure. Doctors don't have time to explain the difference between them. ; Also the U.S. Public Health ~Service says people should have pflu shots if they are a certain l:age, or work with a lot of oth- 7ers, or else are pregnant wom- ; en. > If shots are good for them why Daren't they good for everybody? " Flu, Asian flu and colds all Jare virus diseases. Unhappily we |) r m 0 | ner r don't have any "wonder drugs" ;J.hat will stop viruses the way we can stop bacterial Diseases. So it's true that no medication will cure leither colds or flu. | Aspirin and plenty of rest will make you feel ^better, and staying home and not getting over- ftired will help prevent picking up some other jgerm on lop of the virus. * Flu — and there arc a number of varieties— {tends to make you ache, feel exhausted, feverish. ^'Asian flu" is merely a particular type. Technically, it is called "A-prime influenza." Each of the varieties of flu tends to cause its own epidemic. iThat is, we don't often have more than one kind festering us at a time. * Colds, while also caused by viruses, don't nil us :as hard as flu. They give us runny or clogged : By jph ; This And That :. .The pause that refreshes is the one between the last echo of "I'm Dreaming of a White Christinas" and the first notes of "In Your Easter Bonnet." . In our grandfather's home there were many flirty books. No censors, but Grandma's * dust cloth did all the clean- .ing that was required. . Some caustic critics continue to say that the United State chicken out in the "Cuban crisis. That is a matter of anyone's opinion, but the fact remains it is better to be a live chicken lhan a gone goose. JPH The popular program this TV season is one of the comedy type. It is a pleasant change from the oaters and bang-bangers, but the trouble with a number of the comedy programs is (hey simply aren't funny. Why, then, list them as comedy? They have to call them something, don't they? Today mountains may not be coming to Mahomet, but put the airport or the shopping center out in the country and the city will build its way right up to it. Why should so much be made of Jack Benny forcing the clock to stop for him at the age of 39? Little Orphan Annie has been holding steady at going on 12 for the past 40 years. ' Certain prominent member of Congress seems to have developed some new clinches for the present session. It was about time, too. After all, )!0 years was a lot of milage to have got out of his old set. ••The fashion word is the feminine look will prevail in 1963. More bang for a buck. Particularly a young buck. Letter to the editor of the austere Kansas City Star: "Hurrah! I saw two robins hopping around jn my yard this morning. Just as pert as you please. We were eating breakfast." It is playing yjth the heartstrings of its readers that keeps a newspaper great. noses, and some types irritate the throat and eyes. There are scores of cold viruses, some more ornery than others. And that's about as far as you can go, without getting very complicated, in distinguishing between these different maladies. Even though we can't cure virus diseases, we can prevent a lot of them with vaccines. The present flu vaccine protects against all the maior varieties, including the much-publicized Asian. If you haven't had flu shots before, the best advice is to have two of them about a month apart. If you had shots last year, then a single booster each year is enough to keep you protected. You might, under certain circumstances, get flu anyway, because no vaccine is 100 per cent effective, but it would be mighty unlikely for you to have a hard case. You ask why flu shots aren't go<x1 for everybody. They would be. Bui flu vaccine, in its present form, is comparatively new, and last year, for example, the available supplies ran pretty short. Therefore, the emphasis was placed on giving shots to people who needed them most. The elderly, who may have lung, heart or other trouble, or simply be feeble, are the most likely to become very sick. The young and rugged get over the flu; among invalids, many die. Pregnant women need the protection; and people in vital jobs — nurses, policemen, key personnel in civic or business affairs — owe it to the community to guard against being incapacitated in case an epidemic starts. But yes, flu shots are a good precaution for nearly everybody. They may not be tolerated by persons allergic to egg. Note to Mrs. W. B.: Phenobarbital is and has been widely used for epilepsy, relaxing the patient and thus averting seizures. You need not fear either addiction or loss of effect of the drug when used in suitable amounts. Attention all women!

Aulcl Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO The price of corn dropped 2M> cents on the Ottawa market, making the price 52'/ 2 cents per bushel for white and yellow corn, and 50 cents for mixed corn. OUawanis were smiling about a sign on an Ottawa business house on North Main. A repair shop had moved into the building after a cafe and chilli parlor had moved out. In painting the new .sign, the painter neglected to remove all of the old sign. It read "Automatic Saw Filing." "Take Home A Quart." Gene Price sold his automobile agency at Osawatomie to George Elliott of Richmond. 50 YEARS AGO The fire department was called to (he home of B. F. Harrington, 719 Mulberry. A flue was burning out. John Hallorcn, Milo R. Harris, Clare M. Harris and S. R. Hubbard went to Kansas City to attend a convention of the Southwest Lumbermens Association. There was talk of an ocean-to-ocean boulevard running from New York to San Francisco for automobiles to run tin.
