I : OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Thursday, January 24, 1963 Editorials Female Saturated PTA Turning his bow into the wind and looking for a gale, Admiral Hyman G. Rickover let fly at the Parent-Teacher Associations. Speaking at a Fund For the Republicans meeting, the father of the atomic submarine was blunt. "An infernal nuisance" is what he called the PTA. Such criticism is par for the course for Rickover who has been a bitter critic of American education. He added that PTA "members ought to stay home and take care of their husbands." The admiral's widely-published comment drew immediate rebuttal from PTA officials including heads of the state organizations in Kansas, Missouri and Colorado. All three are women. It appears one of the biggest complaints was that mostly women belong to the PTA. Top officials claim many men are active in the PTA. Rickover is not alone in his criticism To Your Good Health of the PTA. Writing recently in the National Observer, a professor of education at Boston University and a card- carrying member of the PTA for 25 years had this to say for the organization: "I feel that the PTA, cross country, represents a female middleclass irrelevancy, or worse, a monthly intrusion. The organization has never really shaken off its mono-sex origins, nor has it come close to achieving its general goal of parent education . . . The sex unbalance is most striking at state and national meetings of the PTA, which are 90 per cent female saturated. In order to improve, if not to survive, the PTA needs a strong injection of male force and male image." Whether the admiral or the professor is right, we don't know. It is, however, our belief that were the PTA really doing the job it is supposed to do, the educational problems of America today would be far fewer than they are. Dump Leftover Medicine Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: My brother and his family always save any antibiotics left over from a prescription and take them for the next infection that comes along. Today he feels a sty forming on his eye and is going to take two pills left over from a boil on his arm. I told him antibiotics that are left over should be destroyed, and that they should be taken ; only on prescription for an illness, and then in the exact amounts. He thinks I am talking nonsense. Am I? I could save money this way, too, if it isn't dan- gerous.—H.H. All left-over medicine should be disposed of, except, of course, the usual staples that we keep around the house anyway. I haven't an objection in the world to saving money. I'm all for it. But there are at least a couple of good reasons, and sometimes more, for not hanging onto odds and ends of medicine. As to antibiotics, why did he have two pills left over? He might — I repeat "might" — have the sty now because he didn't take quite enough of the antibiotics when he had the boil. The two things usually come from similar germs, sometimes even identical ones. He may have taken enough antibiotics to stop the boil, but not quite enough to drive off the disorganized remnants of the germs. Antibiotics, we know from sad experience, should not be used in too small amounts. Why? Because unless the germ under attack is totally routed, there is a chance that a few microbes will mutate, or become resistant to that particular drug. This is why we have had so much trouble with the staphylococcus infections (including sties and boils). Some medications lose potency when left stand- By jph This And That Whatever they do in Texas, it isn't done small. As an example, a Houston bank not only had a Chairman of the Board, but also a Senior Chairman, a Consulation Chairman, and a Vice Chairman. As the President undoubtedly puts it to any one of his three Executive Vice Presidents, "Partner, that's banking." . We never have seen a display window dummy that could be called lifelike. On the other hand, its incredible how many people one runs across over the years who look exactly like display window dummies. An improbable event was celebrated earlier this month. Potato and Onion Week. Put those two together and you make a hash of it. They'll never go together steady like bacon and eggs. Johnny Carson is quite an improvement on Jack Parr as host of the Tonight show. With Johnny it is so much easier to turn off the set and go to bed. Billy Sol Estes is doing some missionary work while waiting for his appeal from his conviction on a swindling charge to be heard. He is speaking against sin, naturally, and drawing good crowds, because nothing attracts like the voice of experience. What's a good news story? Simple. Anything those directly involved would greatly prefer not to see in print. Washington under Jackie's leadership is becoming so culture conscious that perhaps the addition to'the cabinet should be a secretary of urbane affairs. Looking back into the years, we realize what an underprivileged child we were. Think of making one's way all through the grades and high school without any help from the PTA, ing, and that's why (although we may not hear much about it generally) the really fine pharmaceutical companies pay a great deal of attention to what is known as "shelf life." Different ailments, and different infections often need different drugs, and this applies to the antibiotics, too. Guessing that one infection is like another isn't very sensible. So, if medicine is left over, and you insist on saving it, consult your doctor before you "use it «p." Many times it may be all right. You may save 50 cents or even a dollar. However, it's safer to dump it Dear Dr. Molner: For some unknown reason I seem to find great satisfaction in chewing tooth picks, matches, etc. It is such a compulsive thing that I carry toothpicks in my purse and pockets. According to a recent checkup, I am in good health.—Miss E.F. This is called an "action habit" or compulsive neurosis. Some people bite fingernails, smoke, pick their teeth, fiddle with the silverware, tap their fingers. All you need to do is make up your mind that you aren't going to chew wood or any substitute. Hootpick - gnawing isn't a very>, attractive habit, especially in a woman, but you can break yourself of it in a week or two if you really decide to. Dear Dr. Molner: This may sound foolish but it worries me. Some folks have the cruel habit of pulling children's hair. I don't mean gently, but hard enough to lift them off the floor, to make them obey. Is there any danger that this might damage a child's brain?—Mrs. K.C. No, but this or other forms of abuse can't help but disturb a child emotionally — make him too fearful or make him resentful or make him mean and determined to "get even" when he gets bigger. It is not good for his hair, either. What are ulcers? How should they be treated? What can you do to help rid yourself of ulcers and stay rid of them? For answers, read Dr. Molner's helpful booklet, How To Heal Peptic Ulcers and Keep Them Healed. For your copy write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, El., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover cost of printing and handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO The Ottawa High School Cyclones won a basketball game from Manhattan High School, 43 to 20. An explosnion of fumigating gas being used on seeds blew the front windows out of the Ottawa Hardware Store. Henrietta Hudelson, 403 S. Elm, purchased the No. 1 license tag for the year 1938 for her dog. 50 FEARS AGO A horse, hitched to a milk delivery wagon and driven by R. G. Lawton, became frightened because of an automobile driven by Lee Gray near the corner of 6th and Cedar, and ran, tipping over the milk wagon and spilling milk over the street generously. The horse ran to the corner of 1st and Cedar where it was caught by several men. The Tavern Hotel at 2nd and Walnut was sold by G. W. McClelland and E. G. Gladstone of Oklahoma City. John Sullivan, the Sage of Tauy Creek, was in town telling friends that the groundhog was fake as a weather prophet. He said he had just caught one of the beasts in a steel trap. "They come out of their dens whenever they take a notion," he said. Prayer For Today 1 During the night a vision came to Paul: a Macedonian stood there appealing to him and saying, "Come across to Macedonia and help us." (Acts 16:,. NEB.) Prayer: We pray, our Father, that we may hear Thy call when it comes to us and be ready to serve Thee by serving our fellowmen in their need, whatever that need may be. In the name of Christ, who taught us to pray, "Our Father who art in heaven. . . Amen." Television Log Channel 4, NBO Channel,) 5-18, CBS Channel 9, ABC Thursday t— «port,i •—New« 13-News.

Hollywood At Best Before The 1940s By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Hollywood entered its fabulous era on Oct. 6, 1927, when Al Jolson first sang on a screen in "The Jazz Singer." Wednesday's night's ABC special, "Hollywood: The Fabulous Era," picked up the history of the movies at that point and, with small samples and a narration by 3enry Fonda, carried the story almost up to date. It was, for the most part, fascinating, but it would have been infinitely more effective had the iroducer concentrated on the most glamourous movie years—up to L940 for instance. The most intriguing material was the excerpts from the earlier talkies—John Gilbert speaking in piping English accent; Dick Powell singing to Ruby Keeler; Mae West inviting fresh-faced Cary Grant to come up and see her some time; Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert; William Powell and Myrna Loy; James Cagney and Edward G. Robinson. The postwar film material had less charm and appeal. It just isn't old enough. But, in all, it was a warm hour of nostalgia, particularly if the viewer was old enough to remember the enchantment of seeing the originals. People who keep a sharp eye on the television industry have been puzzled for months. It is a television fact that when a hit show emerges during a season, the imitators get busy and, within months, reasonably exact facsimiles pop up on other networks. Well, this season's surprise smash hit has been the country- style comedy, "Beverly Hillbil- lies," on CBS. The puzzle has been that nobody has been announcing plans for a new series called "Chestnut Hillbillies," about a Southern mountain family moving to Boston or "Forest Hillbillies," about a Southern mountain family moving to New York. CBS has now dropped the other shoe and the suspense is over. Its schedule next season will include a new comedy called "Ozark Widow." It will be a true child of the original, however, because it will take Pearl Bodine, Jed Clampett's man-hunting widowed cousin (played by Bea Benadaret) for a star. Presumably, however, Buddy Baer who has been playing both her son and her daughter—Jethro and Jethrine—will be confined to one role, the L'il Abner type in the original show. As a matter of fact, the Jethrine part will soon be eliminated from 'Beverly Hillbillies."
