OTTAWA HERALD Pit* Four Tuesday, January 29, 1963 Editorials Not Fat, Just Too Short Over the weekend a member of the Kennedy team predicted in an interview that the President's tax cut proposals would be the major issues before Congress this session. He further predicted they would be passed. We wouldn't bet either way. Already the bloom is off. The word from Washington has it that plans are being laid to tighten exemptions. Such could mean the actual saving to the individual wouldn't be too much. Also, in his budget message, the President cut back non-defense expenditures. He did this to hold his proposed budget below the $100 billion mark. A number of congressmen have indicated there is still too much fat in the budget, and slicing of defense spending is not beyond the realm of possibility. While President Kennedy feels a tax cut would stimulate business, thus increasing in the long run the amount received in taxes, he has a major selling job to do on Congress. The old-fashioned To Your Good Health idea that income should balance with outgo still prevails. You might say Kennedy has adopted the position of the woman who refused to admit to her doctor that she was 20 pounds overweight. The doctor's reply was: "If what you say is true, madam, then according to my height and weight chart, you are six inches too short." Our Readers I would like for some of the old timers of the communities of Peoria and Richter to write to me. My father came from Peoria, and I'm surprised to learn that there is a community close to you by the name of Richter and another by the name of Peoria. If you would print this letter, I'm sure someone will write me and tell me about the Richter families and where names of both communities come from. — T. L. Richter, 708 W. llth, Taylor, Tex. Swell Show, But Will Rainier Like It? No Kerosene For Cough Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: As a child and teen-ager, I was given kerosene and sugar for a cough. Patent medicines were ineffective. I now have the same problem with my children. Is kerosene harmful? It never seemed to hurt me.—T.H. Kerosene is a hydrocarbon, and chemicals of this class are toxic. Years ago we did a lot of things we wouldn't do now, because then we lacked some of our present knowledge. I know that a lot of kerosene and sugar has been swallowed and didn't do any detectable harm, but there is an element of danger in it for some individuals. Today's cough mixture (both the patent medicines and prescription ones) are so much more effective and safer that I would avoid the risk of potentially dangerous ones. To give you a further example of my reasoning, take the famous and tragic thalidomide matter. Thalidomide, it was found after widespread use in Europe, and some in Canada, and a little leakage into the United States, turned out to be very dangerous, not to the users themselves but to babies whose mothers took the drug in the early weeks of pregnancy. The result has been several thousand tragic births — deforemed childen. But there are also thousands of mothers who took thalidomide and yet had normal babies. Using a drug and having no ill effects is not proof that it is harmless. Kerosene, in this in- Byjph This And That Diets for women aren't so much to take off pounds as to provide interesting conversation pieces. Add signs of spring: A neighbor has his screens spread out in his basement and painting them. Congress seems reluctant to cut taxes this year. It fears that the voters wouldn't remember it n e x 1 year when it came time to vote. The Junction City Union reports on the progress of secondary education in that city: "Student objections which developed at the Senior High School, resulting in a boycott of the cafeteria, have been resolved. Warren Settles, principal said use of the student lounge has been restored but that measures have been taken to alleviate corridor congestion which have brought about suspension of the lounge use. The juke box has been moved to a less congested area and chairs have been placed in the gymnasium foyer as well as pingpong tables." It sounds like a lot more fun than history, algebra, or Latin. Unfortunately the fact it now costs a nickle to mail them doesn't discourage people from writing letters to get in their two cents' worth. Somewhere we read that women this winter are knitting themselves little covers to keep their noss warm. Others accomplish the same thing by sticking their noses into somebody else's affairs. A Mtional academy of foreign affairs is proposed, and it seems a splendid suggestion. Here men could be trained for the top ambassadorial posts which later would be denied them in favor ol generous supporters of the party in power. Tlkt census bureau reports there are now close to a million Americans 85 or older. The very number of them has killed what used to be a profitable business for octogenarians. Selling testimonials to patent medicine makers. SHOW OFF HOME - Prince Rainier HI of Monaco and his wife, Princess Grace, are narrators and guides for "A Look at Monaco," special one-hour filmed report to be broadcast in color Sunday, Feb. 17, on Channels 5 and 13. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Tuesday stance, is a "drug." It is a chemical of active and sometimes dangerous properties. It harms some people. Others can take it, within small limits, without harm, but too much kereosene could well even be fatal. Medicine is not an exact science. It may never be. We have to abide by the percentages, or risks, or whatever you call it, and as a physician I can't put a "safety" label on something I know to be dangerous in some cases. See my point? Dear Dr. Molner: What kind of examination would I have to go through before my doctor could tell if I have an overactive thyroid gland? Would I have to go to the hospital? Would the treatment be an operation, medicine or shots?—A.H. The usual test is a "B.M.R.," or basal metabolism reading, which means that you go to the doctor in the morning without having eaten anything, and allow time to lie still for perhaps half an hour before the test. The test itself involves a few minutes of breathing through a tube, after which the doctor can measure the rate at which you use up oxygen. Another test, called a "P.B.I." 1 or protein-bound iodine test, done with a small blood sample is regarded as being more specific. And there are still more intricate ones involving isotopes. By and large no, you won't have to go to the hospital; anyway, not for the first couple of tests. Treatment depends on the case: Radioactive isotopes sometimes, or surgery to remove part of the gland. In many instances one of the "anti- thyroid" drugs can be used effectively, taken by mouth. Dear Dr. Molner: Can persons who have had syphilis but been treated for it transmit the disease or infect anyone else? Could they ever become infected again?—Mrs. L.D. With proper treatment, patients in suitable time can be sure of not giving the disease to anyone else. But yes, they can get it again. Hemorrhoids can be cured! If troubled with fissures, fistulas, itching and other'rectal problems, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158. Dundee HI., requesting a copy of the booklet "The Real Cure For Hemorrhoids," enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover printing and handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Mariettc Bennett, daughter of Mrs. J. Henry Bennett, 609 S. Hickory, was ill with scarlet fever. Gordon Noland was elected president of the junior class at Ottawa High School. A marriage license was issued to Donald S. Hulls, Ottawa, and Frances E. Ware, Lamed. 50 YEARS AGO Asdrubal Reed of the Middle Creek neighborhood brought a hog weighing 600 pounds to Ottawa and sold the animal for $42. He remarked "I've got a bigger one out home," adding, "I raise 'em for size, not beauty." A part of the paving on Main Street between 1st and 2nd Streets was being replaced. The paving had sunk in a number of places where gas lines were installed. Albert Reeder returned to his home in Topeka after a visit here with his mother, Mrs. Belle Reeder. Prayer For Today Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised thee, is burnd up with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid waste. (Isaiah 64:11.) PRAYER: 0 living God of our fathers, teach us to build and care for churches that are worthy of being called holy and beautiful. Help us to be reverent in our spirit that we may have the blessing of Thy peace. In Christ's name we pray.

Main Deaf Man Perfects Tiny Hearing Aid Minneapolis, Minn. — A remarkably tiny hearing aid has been perfected by a man who has been hard of hearing for nearly ten years. This small device has no dangling cords or separate transmitting units and represents a new and unusual design idea in a product to restore natural hearing. It was developed especially for those persons who can hear but can't understand. This new hearing instrument provides "ear-level" hearing with the wearer picking up speech, sounds, television and radio at his ear. Due to the use of transistors, the user cost is extremely low. The instrument weighs only 1 A oz. It is about the size of a sewing thimble — hardly noticeable yet powerful.

By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radk) Writer NEW YORK (AP)-NBC's rambling reporter, David Brinkley, spent part of last summer in five of the world's smallest countries, a piece of enterprising television journalism. His filmed report, enlivened by witty, incisive comment, was shown Monday night in one of Brinkley's "Our Man" series. Last season, Brinkley did a similar report on Vienna, with such emphasis on its rich food and leisurely life that "Our Man in Vienna" drew some fire from loyal Viennese. There could be some such repercussion after the Brinkley comments on such tourist landmarks as Monaco and San Marino, where the industries are largely tourists and postage stamps. One complainant might be rival CBS, which has an hour special on Monaco coming up next month Richmond News Couple Moves To Ottawa By MABEL CHANDLER Mr. and Mrs. Bert Stevenson moved Saturday to 601 North Main in Ottawa.

Brinkley seemed less impressed by Monaco's historic landmarks and glamorous history than by the fact its public information officer is a Hollywood press agent; that NBC couldn't take pictures inside the royal palace—CBS could and did—because Prince Rainier and his princess "sold the television rights to themselves and the palace to the Music Corporation of America" for $300,000; that Rainier financed his wedding to the American movie star by issuing a new postage stamp of the wedding. San Marino was another tiny country on his itinerary whose major income comes from postage stamps and that seasonal activity Brinkley described as "skinning the tourists"—and his attitude seems to be that they deserve skinning. In Andorra he investigated smuggling, to France and Spain, which he called a major industry. He accompanied a pair of smugglers loaded with wine and cigarettes as they started in broad daylight over the mountains to Prance. It was a swell show.
