OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Wednesday, January 30, 1963 Insist On Right To Know The hardy "right-to-know" bill has been introduced in the Legislature again. It would require all meetings of state, county, school boards and other public groups to be open to newsmen, so that the public will know what is said and done in the meetings. The bill has been often proposed, but never adopted, which indicates that while newspapermen may get hot under the collar about it, the public couldn't care less. Legislators know this, and know that they run no great political risk by quietly killing the bill each session. The legislators are particularly interested because the law would apply to their own committee meetings as well as to local school board meetings. We support the bill and urge its passage. But we are under no illusions that this, or any other legislation will assure To Your Good Health an end of secrecy in government. The most tightly drawn law will still leave plenty of loopholes for the public official intent on keeping the public from knowing what he is up to. The board, or committee, can meet as scheduled in the presence of reporters or other members of the public and go through the routine motions. Then they can get together quietly over a cup of coffee or over the telephone to thresh out their real differences, out of earshot of the public. The answer to this is not in law, but in aggressive reporting by news media and unquenchable curiosity of the taxpayers. The impression must be created and maintained that the political risks of secrecy are far greater than any embarrassment that might be suffered in open meetings. No Panacea For Bald Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: A terrible thing is happening to my family and it is making a nervous wreck of me. My son who is not yet 18 is almost completely bald. My daughter is 11 and her hair is falling out. I am 40 and my forehead is receding. My children are heavy but do not eat proper foods. They are also extremely nervous and sensitive. Could this have anything to do with the problem?—Mrs. A.M. Habitually I wince when questions about thinning hair come up, because there are but a limited few suggestions I can offer. There isn't any sure • fire panacea — which, of course, is why new gimmicks are constantly being offered, and the hopeful thin- toppers keep trying them, and then discarding them when they don't work, and shelling out their money for the next one that comes along. Almost all of the known causes of thinning hair are, or may be represented in today's letter. Heredity is always first. It is not uncommon for a certain number of boys of 18 to start losing hair. There is no known answer except to be philosophical about the problem. Some skin condition (seborrheic dermatitis being the most frequent) can do the mischief. This can be corrected, but only by having a specific diagnosis by a skin specialist, and then treatment. Nor should it be delayed; the damage cannot be undone if allowed to continue too long. Faulty nutrition can cause thinning, and loss of the hair's naturally glossy appearance. One can be overweight and yet a victim of malnutrition because of not eating the right food. Because of this, many people jump to the conclusion that taking vitamins will restore the hair to its former state. Unhappily this does not appear in practice to be so. But substituting a good diet can make a difference in malnutrition cases. Anxiety can be a factor. In a family such as today's, some hard - headed attention to learning not to be too sensitive and nervous would undoubtedly pay dividends in more than the hair. A glandular defect, particularly of the thyroid gland, sometimes is found to be a cause of thinning hair. Since this may also have a relation- By iph This And That Says Fidel Castro: "In the world in which Ihe American woman lives, the woman necessarily has to be a revolutionary." But not so revolutionary she doesn't ;et home in time to c o o k dinner. How much of a tax cut should there be? Deep enough, in the opinion of a friend, so that the treasury would need a blood transfusion. K Behind every successful JPH man there stands a woman, but she won't stand for loo much. President Kennedy is to visit Italy later this year. When in Rome he shouldn't do as the Romans do, for if he does they will laugh at him. A sewing circle is a social group in which the women are much more inclined to put the needle into absent members than their fancywork. Widow we know, who has been one lung enough to be adjusted to it, tells us that her greatest continuing loss is Uiat of someone to zip up her dresses in the back. The federal budget for the next fiscal year calls for just under $99 billion of spending. One can hardly wait for the year after next when our great nation becomes the first in history with a government that costs in excess of a 10th of a trillion to maintain. Local man has written to his congresman insisting that the latter vote for the tax reduction the President proposes. "My wife," he explained, "already has spent the money." ship to being over-weight, it might well merit some investigation. Dear Dr. Molner: Is hemorrhaging always fatal in tuberculosis? Have some patients died of the disease without ever having hemorrhaged? Is it possible to be cured and still hemorrhage?—H.S. No to the first, yes to the second. And as to the third, if the T. B. is cured I would not expect hemorrhage, but remember that the lungs may be badly scarred, or some other condition may be present, so the answer must be that "it is possible." Dear Dr. Molner: I am a controlled diabetic, yet I am tired all the time. I have a family and a part-time job so I have to keep going. What can I do to give me more strength?—Mrs. J. Two possibilities so far as the diabetes is concerned: Too much insulin, or a diet that needs adjusting. But it could be some entirely unrelated matter: Anemia, low thyroid activity, infection, even TB. Finally, and maybe most important: Are you getting enough rest? With a family and a job and a feeling that you "have to keep going," you may be staying up too late doing household chores, then getting up early for morning chores and the job. Any vigorous woman can push herself to do more than she should, for a time, but nobody can, even with the benefit of medicine, use up more energy than there is. Are you getting enough sleep? Dear Dr. Molner: My niece has a malformed kidney. Can you tell me anything about this and what, can be done?—B.H. It's not common and can be of different types: Unusually small and under-developed kidneys; extra lobes; fusing of one kidney to the other, forming a horseshoe shape. Treatment depends on the symptoms, type of deformity and assurance that the other kidney is functioning properly — many people are getting along very well with one kidney. In some cases no surgery is necessary. Such defects are usually discovered when a cystoscopic examination or a procedure called a pyelogram is done. These, of course, are ordinarily done only after some symptoms have developed. "Don't Quit Because Of Arthritis" is the title of my leaflet designed to help all who suffer the aches and pains of arthritis. For a copy write to Dr. Molner Box 158, Dundee, HI., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover cost of handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Moffett's Bakery, 103 S. Main, was being remodeled. Ottawa High School defeated Olathe High School in a basketball game, 8 to 6. No scores were made during the first seven minutes of the game, and none in the final quarter. No free throws were scored during the game. Two fouls were called on each team during the game. Dr. W. A. Elliott spoke at a preaching mission of the Home Mission Society at Stackton, Calif. He was pastor of First Baptist Church in Ottawa. 50 YEARS AGO Many Ottawans were wearing sunflower badges on Kansas Day, Jan. 29, but a survey by an interested business man along Main Street revealed that not more than one sunflower wearer in 10 could tell that the year President James Buchanan signed the bill making Kansas a state was 1861. Elder's Store was advertising 14-quart dishpans for 10 cents each. Miss Sidscll Nelson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Nelson of Ottawa, an art student at Art Institute of Chicago, was one of the students who were quite busy preparing for a showing of the work of student painters. The showing was to have the theme "Caesar's Gods." Miss Nelson and other students were painting the scenery for the show. Prayer For Today Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am 1 in the midst of them. (Matthew 18:20.) PRAYER: "As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, 0 God." Help me to use every opportunity to draw closer unto Thee that I may be filled with Thy strength and peace. For Jesus' sake. Amen.
