OTTAWA HERALD Page Foot Editorials . Saturday, January 26, 1963 Saturday Notebook A. L Van Cleave This just hasn't been a good week for our carrier boys. How would you like to walk a couple of miles in below zero weather tossing newspapers? But most of the lads were up to it. Take the young man pictured here. He is Dennis Mclntire. Out of curiosity, we checked on what the smart carrier wears in bitter weather. Dennis is equipped with sweatshirt with hood, a scarf, parka with hood, two pair of jeans, insulated boots, sun glasses and youthful vigor. He finds he can weather the wind pretty well on his route from 4th to 7th, Walnut to Elm. One of Dennis' fellow carriers, similarly dressed, came up with the quip of the week when his mother kidded him about his appearance. "I look so funny," he admitted, "that when I walk by, mothers bring their children to the window just to see me." This week's mail brought a letter from Leslie E. Claypool who lives at 1069 N. Oxford in Los Angeles. In his letter, Claypool spoke of the early days in this county. A native of Waverly, he went to Baker University and KU before becoming a reporter on the Olathe Register, now defunct. His earliest newspaper training was on the Williamsburg Star at Williamsburg where he was "editor for a short while when the owner, a minister, skipped out and left me in charge." Recalling the short tune he lived in Ottawa, Claypool says "I was not too popular because I was pretty wild." Around here he was known as "Earl." Now he says he is a model citizen. "I don't drink or smoke and I swear only mildly when I get mad." The fact that To Your Good Health Kyle Kicked His Way Into Career I Sought A. I. By It has many years way and a come established That I started wrong so Van Cleave come to me after that there's a right wrong way to be- in a career, and that parents who'd like son win a Pulitzer to see their Prize should be real happy when he goes out for football, are secondary conclusions. If you'll pardon a bit of name -dropping, I'll t e 1 1 you all about it. Some years ago there was no one between the "R" and the "V in the alphabetical seating arrangement in college sophomore English class. So one A. I. Van Cleave was seated at the right elbow of one Kyle Rote. In those days it was my dream to be a big-name writer with bylines in the national publications and fat checks arriving every so often. So I was taking 'English and literature and journalism courses right and left. I don't know what career Kyle {had in mind then. He had a good thing going on the gridiron, making All-America before he was graduated. He has had a good thing going with the New York Football Giants since, first as a player and now as a member of the coaching staff. A couple of years ago, on one of the rare occasions when my aspirations and energy were up, sent a little piece I had written to a national magazine. They sent the little their regrets. A few days Van Well-Dressed Herald Carrier he is 74 might have something to do with this. Since leaving this area Claypool has worked on papers in Kansas City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, for the Associated Press and now writes for a paper in the San Fernando Valley. Purpose of his letter was to catch up on his relatives and old friends with whom he has lost touch the past half century. Why Fingers Get Cold Dr. Molnei By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: Why do the fingers of my 18- year-old son turn white in intense cold? Could he have injured them or could they have been frostbitten? As a child he bit his nails and even his fingertips to the point where they ulcerated. Is there anything we can do?— Mrs. D.P. I doubt whether the early nail- biting has anything to do with the problem. As for his fingers having been frostbitten, well, that can cause excessive sensitivity to cold afterward, but it's likely that if this had happened, it would be remembered. Have your son examined to see whether some other condition is present. Raynaud's disease comes to mind. Although this is more common in women, and is noted later in life as a rule, it can occur in males, too. Another possibility is cryoglobulinemia, in which a certain type of protein in the blood is precipitated, or converted into solid form, by cold. The result is that the blood thickens and flows less ByTph This And That s In the 88th Congress there is not a bearded member and only 22 of them sport mustaches. Score: 16 Democrat, 6 Republican. The Democrats are putting on hairs. Tombstones set admirable examples for the living. They never have anything excent a • good word to say for the dead. In his annual address on the subject, President Kennedy found the state of t h e Union to be good. The state he was referring to, however, couldn't have been Mississippi. Two still unidentified men walked away from Tropical Park race track in Miami the other afternoon with $105,000 in winnings. They didn't get them by betting on long shots but by holding up a cashier. This is the only assured way of beating the ponies. We Americans continue to be great skeptics. We'll never take a highway department's warning that roads are impassable because of a snowstorm, but plunge into the drifts to find out for ourselves. Our President continues to take the keenest interest in public transportation. That's downright magnanimous on his part, since he rarely uses it. In dealing with both France and her allies, Gen. de Gaulle becomes more imperious than ever. It was Louis XIV who said, "After me, the deluge." De Gaulle might put it, "After me? Will there be any after me?" If all goes well, the centenary year of the Internal Revenue Service will be celebrated by giving all its customers a reduction in their income taxes. Such a precedent should make everyone look hope- ahead to MM for another cut. piece back with ago I picked up the latest copy of this same magazine and there on the cover was the notation that inside the reader would find an article by Kyle Rote. Inside I found that Rote was this magazine's "sports consultant" and as such would have a column in every issue. It would be a sweet twist here if I could note that Kyle was a poor English student, that I was a good one and that he used to refer to my paper when he was taking his exams. But it wouldn't be true. Not once did Kyle's eyes wander when he was taking tests in that class. He was rated a Library Notes good student. And he was and is rated a good man. (A little story will give you an idea.) There was on the campus edge a place called "The Corral" which succeeded nightly in corraling some of the Mustangs, that being the name of the school's ahtletes. It corraled some of the school's non-athletes, too, me included. One night the place was loaded with stags, including Kyle and me. In the crowd was a group from a fraternity that had a beard fad going. In one corner was a little fellow and a sweet little girl. The bearded fellows were giving the little fellow a bad time, trying, I suppose, to impress the sweet little girl. He finally told them where to get off, and one of them told him not to show his face outside that night. Such developments usually were the signal for me to depart. On the way out, I asked Kyle and a couple of linemen if they were ready to head for the campus. "We're sticking around while,' he said, "to see that that little fellow and his girl get out al right." I heard the next day that the couple left unmolested. New Book Helps Needlework Fans easily. The extremities suffer from the slowed circulation. Raynaud's disease is a disturbance of circulation in the fingers, and a spasm of the blood vessels takes place in exposure to cold. (This usually affects both hands. If only one is involved, then look for some other trouble.) An occupation or even a hobby may involve some factor which affects one hand. Poisons (certain metals are an example) can have such an effect. Or various muscular pressures seemingly may affect the circulation. Still another possibility is that an extra cervical rib in the neck, or pressure from a muscle in the neck, can curtail circulation in an arm. Some drugs, (ergot, for example) can give similar symptoms. As you've gathered, diagnosis of the cause of "cold fingers" isn't simple, but detailed investigation can trace it out, and then you know how to correct it or, alternatively, how to limit the discomfort. Dear Dr. Molner: My son was recently hispi- talized for pains in the chest which were diagnosed as pericarditis. What does this mean? It was described as a virus infection of the heart lining. No medication. He was just told to take it easy — Mrs. M.H. The pericardium is a sort of membrane that encloses the heart, a sentry or guard against infiltrating germs. At times this membrane itself becomes inflamed or irritated, and this is pericarditis. There are various causes. Virus infections (as in this instance) are relatively common. However, other germs can be present at times: Rheumatic fever (a streptococcus infection), typhoid, pneumonia and tuberculosis. The pericardium also frequently is involved in cases of coronary thrombosis. Treatment depends on the cause. Correct that, and the pericardium returns to health. Pain in the center of the chest is one of the outstanding symptoms, along with fever, fast heart beat, shortness of breath. When some of the bacterial infections are involved, and fluid gathers and can be withdrawn, a germ culture can be prepared and matched with an antibiotic that is effective. In cases of virus infection, however, the antibiotics are not effective. Treatment consists of rest and salycilates (aspirin-type drugs) and, like the majority of virus infections, pericarditis presently runs its course. How to get rid of leg cramps and foot pains? The answer may be simple. Write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee HI., a copy of the leaflet, "How To Stop Leg Cramps and Foot Pains," enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover cost of printing and handling. Prayer For Today Living to me means simply "Christ." (Phil- ippians 1:21. Phillips.) PRAYER: 0 God, our loving Father, show us a clearer picture of Thy concern for all. Help us to live for Christ by being missionaries of the good news of redemption. This we ask in the ipirit of the Master. Amen. By NELL BARNABY Librarian "The Art of Crewel Embroidery," by Mildred J. Davis is a beautiful new book in full color which describes one of the most decorative forms of needlework. Mrs. Davis's guide includes sections on basic working materials, color planning, stitches, crewel embroidery for interior decoration and personal use, and finish, ing and block- i n g. Truly a carefully p r e- pared and illustrated handbook for needlework fans. Ruth Strang, one of the nation's outstanding reading specialists, has a recent book which she calls "Helping Your Child Improve His Reading." In this book, Mrs. Strang tells what parents can do to (1) prepare a child for reading (2) sup- NELL Cyclone Doin's plement the school's reading program at various ages (3) help children of different ages overcome reading difficulties (4) provide children with books interesting to them (5) overcome the competition of other interests such as TV, sports, friends (6) encourage the child by reading aloud and word games (7) avoid pushing the child beyond his capabilities (8) overcome the problem of the slow reader. "Letters of James Agee to Father Flye," is the first collection of letters by the author of A Death in the Family." These letters are the outgrowth of a lifelong friendship which began in 1919 when young Agee met Father Flye while attending St. Andrew's boarding school in Tennessee. Covering a period of thirty years, these letters are warm, revealing and unself-con- scious. "There is no doubt that Father Flye represented a foster father to Agee, who had lost his own father as a seven year old boy." Fine writing.

Says Kansas Can Compete TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas can compete for space age industries by employing "wisdom, foresight, and boldness," Dr. James A. McCain said here Wednesday. The two most powerful attractions for the expanding nuclear, electronics and space industries are great universities and a pleasant environment, Dr. McCain said. Speaking to the Kansas economic development forum of the Kansas State Chamber of Commerce, McCain said Kansas has ample opportunities to achieve economic growth in all four areas. He said university research is "indispensable to the optimum exploitation of all these sources of new wealth." McCain called for "seed money" from the Legislature to enable scientists and engineers to start investigations which might attract major outside grants."
