OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Tuesday, February 5. 1963 Goldwater And Cuba In stirring tones the other day, Sen. Barry Goldwater made a plea to rid the Western Hemisphere of the "Cuban menace." The voice of the right wing in America told a New York audience that the "majority of Americans" would vote to do anything necessary to "get rid of that cancer — Cuban Communism. If it means war, let it mean war." His words sound good, but terribly frightening. No one, not even Goldwater, knows how far we would go toward a global war were the U.S. to unseat Castro, thb Red figurehead in Cuba. Over the weekend we learned of the Russian buildup which has taken place since President Kennedy's action last October forced the Russian to pull out offensive missiles. The administration contends this To Your Good Health buildup is confined to "defensive weapons." But it is obvious that our Pentagon is worried about the Soviet weapons and troops which might well exceed the strength of a full army. Even were the U.S. to attempt a limited offensive against Cuba, we would run smack into Russian arms. Whether this would result in a full-scale war is anyone's guess. While Golchvater's proud, brave words may stir many Americans, they are hardly practical. Our only alternative in Cuba is to contain Communism, to limit the flow of men and materials onto the island and to prevent the spread to other nations in this half of the world. We must, in short, make it so ex-1 pensive, short of armed combat, that the Russians figure Cuba isn't worth the time and effort they are now expending. Can Save Alcoholic Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER I have a letter — in fact I have several start- ingly like it — from a wife whose husband insists that he isn't an alcoholic because he never drinks in the daytime. Only in the evening. He insists that he can stop any time he wants to. But he never wants to. Every night it's the same story A series of double shots of liquor, after which he becomes sensitive to any remark he thinks is critical. He argues, becomes positive that he is right about everything, and everybody else is wrong. Now I can't say that such a man necessarily is an alcoholic, but the personality changes and the touchiness, and the assertions that he "can stop" but doesn't, aren't good signs. Alcoholism doesn't necessarily mean falling down drunk in the gutter, although that often is the end of the story. It simply means dependence on alcohol. For some, it is dependence at night. For others, it is a periodic dependence. Sobriety may continue for days, weeks or even months, but time after time the person is at last impelled to return to his liquid crutch. Many of these alcoholics keep insisting that they can "take it or leave it alone," and cite the period of sobriety as "proof." But the real proof isn't the occasional or even the frequent "dry periods." The proof is in the repeated "falling off the wagon." It is, candidly, of scant use to tell this to alcoholics. They refuse to believe it. They continue to kid themselves. They think the advice applies only to "the other fellow." They can't be convinced that there are poten- By i ThisAndThat rS- ~ Depend on the Associated Press to bring in all ~ the news of the world including the fact a 49.5 •:» pound turnip has been grown on the Chinese Na; tionalist island of Formosa.

Prayer For Today Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. (Psalm 119:11.) PRAYER: We thank Thee, dear Father, for the power of Thy Word. Help us to cultivate daily a deep affection for it. May we ever have courage and strength to uphold the principles for personal conduct which Thou has revealed through Thy servants of old. This we pray in the name of our Savior. Amen. tial dangers in overindulgence: Brain deterioration, liver disorders, loss of work accuracy. They have to encounter some real catastrophe: An accident to themselves or someone else; a lost week or lost weekend: loss of jobs; gradual economic decline: loss of friends; alienation of fam- ay. They often (but not always) are unaware of the •misery of (heir families. They are particularly self-centered while drinking, and don't remember this after they sober up. Alcoholism is a disease, a mixture of physical and emotional factors, but alcoholics are salvablc. However, you can't preach them into reforming until they have acknowledged their problem. Usually this means reaching some form of disaster or crisis before, at last, genuinely making up their minds that they have to stop. Dear Dr. Molner: I would appreciate information on "a large aorta, with possibility of an aneurysm."—M.V.C. The aorta is the main arteiy carrying blood from the heart. Merc enlargement might or might not indicate a serious condition — it would depend on other findings. The aneurysm — if there is one — is another matter. I migh best compare it to the inner tube of a tire, with a weak place in it, which bulges. Should this weak place — the aneurysm — rupture, obviously the result would be highly dangerous. Therefore your doctor will make every effort to determine whether it really exists, and how severe it is. If it is present, he doubtless will take steps to reduce your blood pressure if it is too high, and precautions to keep it normal if it is that way. Dear Dr. Molner: Is it harmful to use magnifying glasses that are advertised nowadays for close work and reading? — I am in my 80's.—A.L. No, they're not harmful. They do not, however, correct for other faults in the eyes, such as astigmatism, if they exist. Of all the problems that pediatricians encounter in children, pinworm is the commonest. To learn the newest methods of treatment for this pest, write Box 158, Dundee, 111., for the booklet, "The Commonest Pes, Pinworm," enclosing a long self-addressed stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover handling.

But talent — as a singer, as a pianist — just isn't enough nowadays when the entertainment, via television, seeks the audiences. "If a performer makes a successful record album or two, people became interested in seeing him," explained pianist Peter Nero. "But after they've seen him once, they can go back to playing his records." Tonight's TV Highlights < «r^ Red Skelton will welcome George Gobel as his special guest this evening at.7:30 on Channels 5 and 13. The Garry Moore show, Channels 5 and 13, at 9, sounds like fun. Keely Smith, Dorothy Loudon and Dick Van Dyke will appear and the opening number of the show will be a swing spiritual "Gonna Build A Mountain." If you like boar hunting you might get fooled on the Hawaiian Eye show, since the title is "Boar Hunt" and titles mean so little that it may be only symbolic Advance information doesn't say. Anyway, it will be on Channel 9 at 7:30. Earlier in the evening, the western fans can see an hour of it on "Laramie," Channel 4, 6:30. It's about a reformed safecracker who gets himself rescued from Indians only to run into an outlaw who puts on pressure to persuade him to resume safecracking.

Nero, like many others, is developing a sideline of ice-breaking talk. "Every musician wants to communicate through his music," the Brooklyn-born pianist said. "But if I can make people understand my music better by talking, I must certainly do it. I will not sacrifice artistic integrity — I'll talk, smile, kid around, but the music will be there." The 28-year old keyboard artist is kept busy with guest appearances on most of the top television variety shows. One of his worst problems is persuading writers to give him some lines. "The writers think musicians can't talk. Last season, I was on a Bob Newhart show, and was hoping to have a chance to exchange some remaks with Bob. So they had Bob come out with his drums and ask if I'd play with him. 'Love to, Bob,' I was to say. "Exactly a year later, I was doing a George Gobel show, and he came out with his guitar and asked if I'd play with him. 'Love to, George,' was my line. That's about how it goes." Removals Avery. H.
