OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Tuesday, Jan. 22, 1963 Editorials A Larger Patrol One of the measures before the Kansas Legislature is a proposal from the head of the Kansas Highway Patrol. It requests the addition of 200 men to the force. The proposal would boost strength by some 50 men per year the next four years. This is about all the patrol can find, train and integrate into its force each year. Present strength of the force is now 225. At first glance the proposal to boost the strength by 200 appears excessive. It should, however, be considered that the burdens on the patrol increase each year. Kansas is adding more than 50 miles of new interstate highway to the system per year. The number of cars and trucks on our roads jumps annually. Too, with the cost of law enforcement going up, more and more responsibilities are left to the patrol that formerly were handled by the sheriffs in the various counties. Adding weight to the arguments for This And That by jph greater patrol strength is ominous figure of 591, the number of persons killed last year on Kansas highways. It appears the only preventive for constantly-increased road slaughter is the strong arm of the law. A little muscle in the form of additional troopers, added gradually, certainly is a reasonable request From Our Readers Can't tell you how much I appreciate the editorial carried by The Herald on Jan. 14. As you can imagine, I have received plenty of comment the other way, but interestingly, a very substantial amount of favorable and enthusiastic comment. In any case, thanks a million.— Robert F. Ellsworth, Member of Congress. (The editorial referred to supported Rep. Ellsworth's stand to enlarge the House Rules Committee. —Ed.) Flu With A Flu Shot The doctor came around as soon as he had completed his tour of the hospital. He took my pulse, temperature, and blood pressure. I aah-ed to give him a better look down my throat. He didn't seem too pleased with any of his findings. He shook his head and said "mmm" in the discouraeinp way doctors always do. How did I feel? TerribK HP suggested the hospital. There were a number of other tests hr would like to have made to br sure. I demurred. I prefer to be quietly miserable in my own home rather than in the presence of a succession of intruders. He shrugged his shoulders ir surrender. He delivered his diag nosis. "There is no question about it. You've got it, too." He JPH had confirmed my self-diagnosis. When you ache all over, alternately chill and sweat, have watery eyes, a runny nose and a raspy throat, you're pretty well satisfied before the doctor arrives that you have it. He said that a little penicillin would fix me UT> in no time. T told him mv last encounter with nen- icillin had cured me of whatever triviality I had had, but left me covered with hives. He said "mmm" again. He telenhoned instructions tn the druggist, renewed his injunction to stay in bed and drink plenty of liquids, and went along on his all too busy way. To Your Good Health The prescriptions arrived. There were vile yellow capsules filled with nastymyocin or something (at 50 cents each, I learned later) to be taken at four-hour intervals to check the infection. To be taken at the same time were large, white (22c) pills to break the fever. There were smaller white pills ( a give-away at a nickel) to soothe the nerves, to be taken whenever the nerves seemed to require it. There was a bottle of multi-purpose (or 27c) vitamin pills to be taken before (or is it after?) every meal, just for the hell of it. There is no need of a tedious clinical report. I felt even worse before I began to feel better. I didn't feel as well as I should as soon as I should have. I had to have all the prescriptions refilled before I was able to look at breakfast with enthu siasm again. The druggist seemed happy when ] phoned the repeat order. I telephoned my victory report to the doctor. He suggested taking the nastymyocin (or whatever it was) pills for several days longer, just to be sure. He recommended I stay in for another day or two to recover my strength. "Yes, doctor," I said. He didn't know I was talking to him from my office. Now that it is over, I find a certain satisfaction in the experience. For the first time in my life I had a flu shot last fall. It sure worked. For the first time since 1918, I was bedded by the flu.

If a person over 60 loses coordination of one arm momentarily, does this mean a slight stroke? Or could something else cause it?—Mrs. D.L. Let's put it this way: The risk of strokes can be reduced, but there's no way of preventing them to the degree that, for example, smallpox, lock jaw or diphtheria can be prevented by inoculation A stoke is a disruption of UK circulation of blood in the brain; a thrombus (clot) block. c circulation, or a hemorrhage occurs. Either is a stroke, or &f many technical people prefer tr call it, a "CVA," for "cardio vascular accident." Generally speaking, there are three main causes: hardening of the arteries, which involves thickening of the artery walls and hence a reduced space through which the blood flows; high blood pressure; weakness of the walls of the blood vessels. As an instance of this last, I recall a 9-year-old girl who was born with a weak spot that ruptured. She was, at that early age, the victim of a stroke. In her case, because the tissues were supple, surgeons were able to repair the damage. Later in life the blood vessels, like the rest of our tissues, become more brittle, and surgery such as was done on the little girl is impractical and usually impossible. Hence we cannot depend on such surgical treatment except in very rare circumstances— although, in view of the achievements of recent years, I wonder what marvels may appear in years to come. Anyway, controlling high blood pressure is the principal means we have now for combating strokes, and it is an effective aid. Vigorous research is in progress on the problem of hardening of the arteries, but the picture is not yet as clear as, I trust it will be in the future. A person known to have fragile or otherwise impaired arteries would do well to avoid excessive exertion. So, at present, the measures to fend off strokes are mainly in the realm of the way you live—eat, work and rest — rather than something your doctor can do for you As to momentary loss of coordination such as you mention, I suppose it could be the result of a "little itroke," but there are too many other possible explanations to justify jumping to such a conclusion. If a paralysis follows, than a stroke is the likeliest answer, but if this does not happen, then I assume that some other factor was the more probable cause. Dear Dr. Molner: Does masturbation cause sterility?—W.R.E. No. Fat! My leaflet, "The Lost Secret of Reducing," tells how to get rid of it the easy woy. For your copv write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover cost of handling. An Id Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Southwestern Bell Telephone Co., moved into its new building at Garnett. R. M. Clogston and W. A. Swift of the 1st National Bank went to Kansas City to attend funeral services for W. T. Kemper. Mr. and Mrs. Dee Errickson of Topeka were here to see the Ottawa University - Baker University basketball game.
