OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Friday, January 25, 1963 Editorials From Our Readers Clean Those Streets As I have read The Herald in the past few days, it has alarmed me how many accidents have occurred and how many have been attributed to slick streets. The damages run from $20 to $150; that isn't much but it does add up, and how about the personal injuries, and the loss of time on a job because of the accidents? Oh, I know the people are supposed to have snow tires or chains, but that is not always enough to prevent accidents. What we need is proper care of the streets so they do not get so slick. You go to other cities and they keep the streets safe. It seems very inconsistent to demand the residents of Ottawa to clean their sidewalks within a few hours after a snowstorm with the threat of a fine, but the streets go with very little sand or cleaning until Mother Nature comes by with a week of warm weather. Even then the streets aren't cleaned. All that slosh thaws during the day and freezes again during the night, ruts of ice appear that are so deep that cars get stuck in them. If we are liable for any damage that occurs on our property, it seems that the city should be held to the same. If the city is going to insist that the occupants clean their walks, then the citizens of Ottawa should demand that To Your Good Health the city take proper care of the streets. — Mrs. H. Presley, 1126 S. Hickory. Wonders About Zoning I wonder WHY? Why did the city planning commission and the city commissioners insist on down-zoning the west side of South Main between 13th and 15th? Why did they feel it so necessary that, in spite of the signed protests of every property owner in the 2-block area, these properties be shoved back down to apartment area zoning? Why, if they felt it so necessary to up- zone the property back of the Westminster Church from first family dwelling to apartment area; why, if they felt it so necessary to provide more areas for business development downtown by up- zoning apartment areas on Hickory and Cedar and at 9th and Main to business zoning; why did they feel that the South Main area should suddenly, after many years of business zoning, be yanked out of the classification? Why, when they are increasing the value of other properties by giving them business zoning, should we on South Main be the only area to have our properties arbitrarily decreased hi value? If anyone has the answers to these "WHY's" I'd be interested in having them explained. — Dr. S. Martin Brockway, 1408 S. Main. "© King Features Syndicate, Ine, 1963. World rights reamed.

Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABO Friday Treat Prostate Trouble Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: My husband has an enlargement of the prostate. Six months ago his doctor told him to consult a specialist. He is afraid an operation will be advised and he is waiting until he is "financially able." In the meantime he is doing heavy work, but irregularly. Sometimes it almost gets him down. He has difficulty in emptying his bladder, his lower right side hurts frequently and he becomes sluggish and feels weak. He is 55. What are the possibilities -Mrs. E.B.S. He will continue to suffer as long as his prostate trouble remains untreated. Whether it requires surgery, and how much of an operation it would be, is something he isn't going to know until he sees a specialist. A great many men have put off the operation under one excuse or another, and have been sorry afterward that they thus prolonged their misery. But there can be, of course, worse consequences. Interference with the urinary system can cause infections that aren't always easy to clear up. More dangerous still, cancer may occur. Caught early, a prostate cancer is curable in a high percentage of cases. Ignored too long — you know the answer. I am not saying that this particular enlarged prostate necessarily involves cancer. Simple en- Byjph This And That Neighborhood husband boasts that while maybe his wife can't bake bread as his uother did, she can park a car parallel. That Chicago stenographer who deliberately fudged on her income taxes for years because she thought the V e t- erans Administration had n o t done right by her brother has everyone's adhiration. Not many, though, will take the incident close enough to heart to drop past the women's prison on visiting days to pay her a cheerup . Nothing takes the c h i 1 1 off a zero day like finding a seed catalog in the mail. JPH Neighbor of ours is never disturbed when he finds lipstick on some of his handkerchiefs as he packs to return home from a business trip. He just cuts his throat to provide some protective colonization. One can only congratulate Senator Teddy Kennedy for staying out of the Washington limelight thus far. The strain must be telling, though. White lies seem to have gone out of style. These calloused days nobody bothers to launder theirs. It is not only the whooping crane that is threatened with extinction. An Oklahoma college boy who needs a few bedbugs for his entomology class has been unable to locate any even though he has offered to pay $1 each for a few. And it seems only yesterday when they threw those things in with hotel rooms at no extra cost. Population expert* predict the birth rate soon will increase. This is not for the birds. Just the stork. largement of the gland is more common. But the longer the enlargeent remains untreated, the greater the risk. Not knowing your husband, I can't suggest the best way of persuading him to act — to go to the specialist. Some men can be wheedled into it, some frightened into it, some shamed into it by accusing them of being "chicken." It's too bad that such measures ever have to be used, but if people won't do what they know is the wise thing, sometimes stronger steps have to be taken. As to waiting until he is "financially able," that's not a valid excuse. Dragging around weak and in pain isn't going to help his earning ability a nickel's worth. If he hasn't the money right now (don't you have health insurance?) lay the facts on the line with the specialist. He'll let your husband pay for the operation in installments if this is necessary. Dear Dr. Molner: Please explain about Herpes simplex. I have recently heard of three unrelated cases. Is it contagious?—Mrs. M.D. No, not contagious, but very common. Herpex simplex is another name for the common "cold sore" or "fever blister," caused by a virus. Shingles can be a painful disease! To receive a copy of my pamphlet ,"The Facts About Shingles," write Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 10 cents in coin to cover handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO The United States government announced that a new five-cent piece was to go into use to replace the buffalo nickel. It was to be known as the Jefferson nickel. On one side would be a likeness of Thomas Jefferson, and on the other side his famed home at Monticello. A convention of aeronautical engineers in New York discussed the possibility of firing a rocket to a distance of more than 900 miles above the surface of the earth. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Byron Robison of near Princeton. 50 YEARS AGO B. D. Bennett and C. H. Estabrook of Ottawa, Frank Bodley of Chanute, and F. C. Werner of Pittsburg, left for Key West, Fla., on the first lap of a trip to Panama and some of the islands of that region. Ralph Pleasant and J. Zellner planned a trip to Council Grove to transact business. They arrived at the Missouri Pacific depot just in time to watch the lights of the train go out of sight around the bend west of Ottawa. Ottawa University's basketball team defeated the team of Wentworth Military Academy, Lexington, Mo., 54 to 23. Prayer For Today The love of Christ constraineth us;. . . and he died for all, that they that live should no longer live unto themselves, but unto him who for their sakes died and rose again. (II Corinthians 5:14-15. ASV.) PRAYER: Constrain us, 0 Holy Spirit, with a deepening sense of mission: in the home, at school, on the street, in the shop, in our community where we live; and in our thoughtful, helpful outreach everywhere. In every possible way use us to lead the whole world of our time to learn of Christ and accept Him as Savior and Master. In His name we ask.

Half ill Of Air Keeps Man Alive LOS ANGELES (AP)-A workman, buried 15 minutes under four feet of earth, saved his Me with a hatful of air. Leonard Murillo, 39, was working at the bottom of a flood-control trench Thursday when coworkers yelled that the side was collapsing. Murillo pressed himself against the opposite side of the ditch and clapped his hard metal hat over his mouth. A dozen men dug Murillo out and firemen administered oxygen. Murillo was shaken but otherwise appeared unharmed. He took the rest of the day off. 15-Year-Old Shot In Back KANSAS CITY (AP) - Robert Gary Pinter, 15, was shot in the back Thursday by a shop owner from whom he tried to steal a pistol.

McClintic, El Paso, Tex., by calling or writing to ask if she has given away the five kittens of mixed colors which were mentioned in a recent story in an El Paso paper. The little story about the surplus kittens, listed under a heading, "Dogs and Gas," came to the Ottawa McClintics in a roundabout way. Mrs. Mary Gleason, Rantoul, saw the story in an El Paso paper which she picked up while visiting Sgt. Maj. S. F. Crowley and family at White Springs mis sile range, N. M. She remembered that her step-daughter, Mrs. Ray Bloomer, 124 W. llth, Ottawa, had a neighbor named McClintic so she mailed it to her. Mrs. Bloomer took the story across the street to Mr. and Mrs. McClintic. B. D. McClintic is man. ager of a Woolworth store in El Paso.
