r OTTAWA HERALD Pag* Four Editorials Monday, February 4, 1963 Sunday Closing Law Debate over a Sunday closing law appears to be growing sharper in Kansas. Such a measure is now before the State Legislature. Under provisions of a bill introduced, grocery stores would be allowed to operate until 10 a.m. No general merchandise, shoes, hardware, auto supplies, etc., could be sold. Proponents of the bill allegedly want it passed "to keep the Sabbath holy." Actually there are other reasons, ones we are afraid are really deeper seated. Across the state there are stores which operate seven days a week, big operations, discount houses, which sell everything. Backed by plenty of capital, they can run their -employes in shifts. These large operations are giving the small stores a rough time in the competi- To Your Good Health tion for the consumer dollar. So a number of smaller firms are backing the Sunday closing law. Proponents of the law actually want Sunday closing for protective purposes, to reduce the labor problems they would face with a 7-day week retail operation. Long ago it was found that you can't legislate morality. By closing all stores on Sunday, Kansas won't be forced to "keep the Sabbath holy." Many will just cross state lines to do their shopping. Key to this Sunday closing problem rests with the buyers. For it is the person who shops on Sunday who determines whether or not it is profitable for the merchant to keep his doors open. A Sunday closing law is just another intrusion into our free enterprise system. The less controls applied on business, the better business operates. Sinusitis Or Allergy? Dr. Molncr By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: Please send me a copy of 'You Can Stop Sinus Trouble." I enclose a long stamped^ self-addressed envelope and 20 cents in coin for it. Many people have suggested an operation but I am reluctant because it sounds quite serious. My sinuses bother me only when I have a bad cold. Some relatives have suggested that I use salt water, snuffing it up my nose every morning. It seems to Help. Is it possible for the sinuses to affect one's ears? —L.M. This sounds like a lot of advice without getting the facts. And advice without facts isn't worth much. The booklet you asked for will explain a lot of things, including the fact that some "sinus cases" aren't really sinus disease, even though they may be great aggravations until treated. I have some doubt in this instance whether it is true sinusitis, if it bothers you only when you have a bad cold. With a severe cold, the membranes of the nose and sinuses are inflamed and swollen, and this nterferes with sinus drainage. The sinuses can ache. But this doesn't call for an operation. When the sinuses remain congested, and pus and constant drainage persists, that is another matter, and can be determined by examination and- or X-ray. As to "operations," different types are done. One is to straighten a bent or deviated septum of the nose, if bent so it plugs one side of the nose, blocking both nasal and sinus drainage. Another is removal of polyps, if they are forming a blockage. (Polyps are more common in people with allergies.) Or there may be surgery on the sinuses proper, to remove diseased membranes and aid drainage. So there's nothing gained in arguing over whether to "have an operation" until you know what, if anything, there is to do. Many so-called "sinus cases" are clue to allergy or to constant irritation from fumes — and I deliberaley include tobacco fumes. Many a By jph This And That The number of farmers in this country becomes smaller and smaller through the years. The fewer there are the more public employes are required to show them how to produce in such abundance nobody knows what to do with it. Maybe once it was something else but today the foundation stone of American society is the baby-sitter. A press agent for bananas writes us that if all of them that are consumed in this country in a year were laid end to end they JPH would stretch 1,363,636 miles. And as far as we are concerned, once they are laid, leave them lay. Neighbor of ours never shaves until after he has had his breakfast. He says that beginning the day by looking at himself in the mirror is more than he is up to. Harry Truman at. 78 has recovered from a bit of surgery as quickly and as routinely as though he was in lus 20s, and Dwight Eisenhower at 73 thinks that day lest whose evening sun doesn't see him striding in from the 18th green. Yes, sir, there's no doubt about it. Being President of the United States is a man-killing job. The governor of Louisiana is moving into a new executive mansion which contains 12 bedrooms and 18 baths. That's carrying clean government about as far as possible. It might be said that it is patriotic for a man to lose his hair. Isn't the nation's symbol the bald eagle? The younger generation may not believe it but there have been seasons in the past when the five Roosevelt children got into the papers even mart frequently Uun the Kennedy*. "sinus victim" has stopped smoking long enough to find that the "phlegm" and catarrh" and coughing disappear. No, sinuses do not directly affect the ears, with the exception of a severe mastoid infection. However the same underlying factors — chronic irritation, infection, etc. — can plug the Eustachan tubes and thus impair hearing. As to sniffing salt water, I can give you no more than a lukewarm answer to that. The nose harbors germs which are relatively innocent there, but can play havoc if drawn or forced into the sinuses, and this is a risk that I myself would rather not take. Dear Dr. Molner: My daughter now 24, has been suffering for eight years with eczema of the ears. They are red and swollen inside and out and always "running" or discharging. Often the rims of her eyes are red. Can you tell me what causes this chronic condition? Is it an allergy?— Mrs. E.L. It could be allergy or infection but the chronicity suggests the latter, with a probability of a fungus infection. Such fungus infections have a nasty habit of being complicated by infections from other germs, making the condition subborn to treat. Special laboratory cultures often are used in an effort to determine what the original cause is, and what others may have appeared later. Dear Dr. Molner: For a diabetic is there such a complication as sugar settling in the lung?— R.T.M. Sir, I am not familiar with such a condition and I have studied diabetes diligently. However, tuberculosis can occur very easily in a person with diabetes. Dear Dr. Molner: I enclose 5 cents in coin and a stamped, self-addressed envelope for a copy of "Pre-Menstrual Blues." I am interested in learning more about the swelling — I feel like a balloon at times, and have had to buy larger size dresses. -M.H. The problem is discussed in the leaflet. One woman I know had to buy special dresses several sizes large, until she realized that her doctor could help her by choosing the right medication and telling her when to take it. Count your calories the easy way! To receive a copy of my pamphlet, "The Calorie Chart," write Dr. Molncr, Box 158, Dundee, 111., enclosing a long self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 TOARS AGO Leonard Sizer, Wilbur Swenson, LeRoy Cowperthwaite and Leland Roth, with their debate teacher, Dr. Evan A. Reiff, went on a debating tour of Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas. The motor of the city bus back-fired, setting fire to oil on the motor, but Glen Ainsworth managed to put out the fire before the fire department arrived. Eggs dropped two cents per dozen in Ottawa bringing the price down to 12 cents a dozen. 50 YEARS AGO A group of members of the Ottawa Elks Lodge defeated a group of members of the Ottawa Moose lodge in a pool tournament. It was a close tournament, the Elks winning, 1,159 to 1,147 points. Highest run made by a player in the tournament was by Frank Peterson of the Elks, who had a run of 61. There was much complaint by Ottawa parents about the gravel on the school grounds at Eugene Field grade school on West 7th. The gravel wore out the kids' shoe soles too fast, they complained. Carl Ash, bookkeeper at the Peoples National Bank was ill with a severe case of grip. Prayer For Today Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. (Psalm 119:1.) PRAYER: 0 God, we thank Thee for Thy Word, the chart and compass for man's guidance. Help us as we delve into it and unearth its treasures that we may find it a light unto our feet and upon our pathway. In the Savior's name we ask. Amen.

GETTING A GRIP — Buddy Ebsen (center) is about to break up Donna Douglas and Max Baer who are not shaking hands but getting good grip for hand wrestling on "The Beverly Hillbillies," 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, Channels 5 and 13. A "Vulgar" Push In Oscar Race "You're talking in the wrong ear—that's the one it cornea out of." By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP)-How goes the Oscar race? Swimmingly, you might say, as the 2,525 Motion Picture Academy voters paddle their way through the blandishments and attention- calling of hopeful nominees. All this is supposed to be done with dignity. For the second year, the academy's governors issued this statement: "The academy wishes to call to the attention of all potential nominees for achievements during 1962 the importance of maintaining a standard of dignity in any and all media of advertising. . . "Regrettably, however, in past years a few resorted to outright excessive and vulgar solicitation of votes. This became a serious embarrassment to the academy and our industry. . . " The governors felt constrained to act after the 1960 campaign, an onslaught of vote-seeking such as hasn't been seen since the heyday cf Tammany Hall. This year Daily Variety and Hollywood Reporter are again plump with ads (at $250 per page) extolling the merits of pictures and performances. The formula for the ads is fairly standard. There is a large closeup of the star in the most dramatic moment of the film, plus a quote that runs something like: "Roger Mullethead deserves an Oscar nomination for his performance in 'Drums Along the Los Angeles River. " — Field and Stream. Never are so many critics quoted so much. Who are those seeking the academy's nod: A glance over the trade papers tells you who are the spenders. It should be noted that the advertised actors are not always responsible for the campaigns in their behalf. Often the ads are paid for by the producing company, which hopes to profit from the midas touch of Oscar. Columbia is spending a bundle on full-color insert ads for "Lawrence of Arabia." Warners has conducted a full-scale campaign for "Days of Wine and Roses" and stars Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick. Fox is in there plugging for "The Longest Day." The repeat treatment is being worked with ads for "Long Day's Journey into Night," "Freud" and "To Kill a Mockingbird." Consideration is also being sought for "Jumbo," "Barabbas," "Gypsy," "Miracle Worker," "Birdman of Alcatraz," "Manchr- ian Candidate," "Music Man," "Requiem for a Heavyweight," "Advise and Consent," "That Touch of Mink," "Billy Budd," "The Interns," "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane," "Lonely are the Brave," "Lolita" and "A Taste of Honey." With only five possible nominations, some are bound to be disappointed. Among the stars being touted by the ads: Jackie Gleason, Rosalind Russell, Shelley Winters, Burt Lancaster, Shirley MacLaine, Katherine Hepburn, Ralph Richardson, Jason Robards Jr., Gregory Peck. Bobby Darin appears to have spent quite a few bob to promote himself for "Pressure Point." Supporting actors in the ads: Angela Lansbury, Shirley Knight, Omar Sharif, Red Buttons, Ed- mond O'Brien, Lee Marvin, Telly Sevalas, Victory Buono, Nick Adams, Charles Bickford, Ross Martin. All this cannonading will end Feb. 15 when nominations close. They will be announced Feb. 25, and then the hopefuls will see if it was worth the investment.
