\ OTTAWA HERALD Page Ten Wednesday, February 6, 1963 Editorials A Job Well Done The sun may have warmed this area . considerably the past few days, but many ;a resident has a frigid feeling brought on by receipt of his January gas bill. Our own was no exception. It caused us to groan. Yet considering the cold weather of the month past, it must be admitted that every cent expended for all those cubic feet was worth it. In fact, a constant source of amazement is the speed and efficiency with which most of the central part of the United States is served by a network of gas lines. During January, Cities Service Gas Co., which supplies the five states in this area, including much of Kansas, and Gas Service Co., which serves Ottawa, broke all records for gas delivery. On one day, Jan. 23, this company delivered 1.8 billion cubic feet of gas. To Your Good Health That day the low here was 9 below zero. In Kansas City where the company serves many thousands of users the average temperature for 24 hours was 3 below. With the exception of a freak gas line break at Sedalia, Mo., the serving of millions of customers was largely without loss of pressure. In short, the gas utilities did a noble job of keeping our homes and businesses warm under bitter conditions. Such an accomplishment didn't just happen. Gas lines, storage fields, pumper stations, all that it takes to keep us warm, aren't built overnight. The fact that such a job was done is a testimonial to the foresight, efficiency and engineering genius of the men and utilities of this industry we too often take for granted . . . until it gets colder than you know what. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5.13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Wednesday Need Smallpox Booster Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER I note with approval that the American Medical Association is urging a long-term drive to get people vaccinated against smallpox, a subject which I have been discussing periodically. One expert, Dr. Raymond L. White, said that "the low level of immunity that now exists is deplorable," and he is so right. The government goes to great pains to keep smallpox out of this part of the world, but if a few cases did get in, or even one, the result could be disastrous. There is so much foreign travel that the possibility of some cases slipping through is very real, no matter how care- ,ful we are. . The trouble, I suspect, lies : sharply in the fact that people don't realize that a smallpox vaccination doesn't last forever. I recollect a fairly recent instance of a woman of mature years, planning a trip abroad, remarking contentendly that she wouldn't have to be vaccinated. She was sure, she said, "because the scar is still there from my vaccination." Yes, a large scar may remain permanently but it doesn't mean that immunity also remains. For that matter, with vaccinations as they are now given, the scar, if any, can be so small as to be .virtually invisible. We don't get scars the size of a nickel, such as used to be the case when I was a boy. ' But we do need boosters, or the protection wears off. The lady planning the trip abroad has doubtless learned by this time that she had to get a fresh vaccination or not be allowed to return to this country after her trip. However, the geat majority of people who don't travel aboard are much too likely to depend on the vaccinations they had when they were children. And they shouldn't. To be certain, smallpox vaccinations should be repeated every five years, and some experts would make it every three yars. By jph This And That It is worth recalling that the saying "you can't get blood out of a turnip" was made some years before the United States amended its Constitution to require the payment of income taxes. During his first two years in the White House there were 215 days when President Kennedy wasn't in the White house. He wasn't even in Washington minding the store. fhiS beats Eisenhower's record by 20 days. Our recent Presidents are somebodies but they aren't homebodies. i Here it is only the first week in February and we've already had a winter and a half worth of winter. A television network reports it has completed elaborate arrangements for comprehensive coverage of any nuclear war. But comes a nuclear war, who is there to tune in? Last year 40,000 Americans lost their lives in traffic accidents. Nothing is going to be done about it, of course, but it makes a nice subject for editorials on dull days. Comrade Khrushchev repeats his threat to bury us, but if he continues with the deliberation he has shown for the past several years, he should .watch out lest the Chinese beat him to it. It is Kennedy's belief that if taxes are sharply cut, business will be so improved the government would take in more money. This somehow recalls one of the Two Black Crows who was asked by the other how he could make money spending $2 raising chickens and then selling them for a dollar. "Volume,'.' was the reply. „ After If years of moderating "What's My tone?" John Charles Daly is to leave the show October. By the way, what's his line? With boosters that often, you will frequently have a very mild "take" or sometimes none at all, indicating that your immunity is still of good strength. But the number of adults who are surprised to have a distinct "take" is indication of how many people who are, without realizing it, complacently walking around in such condition that they could get smallpox if some cases happened to crop up. It's such a simple, quick procedure to have your vaccination renewed next time you see your doctor, that I hope you remember to do it. Dear Dr. Molner: If a sebaceaous cyst is iiifect- ed, could the infection be spread by removing it while in that condition?—Mrs. G.F. Yes. "Infection" means germs are there, and there cannot help but be some risk of the germs spreading during surgery. Unless immediate removal is mandatory, it is much safer to bring the infection under control first. Dear Dr. Molner: I am 11 years old. Since I was five I have been getting nosebleeds. Do you know when I will outgrow them?—R.A.N. If they are at night, nine chances out of 10 it is because you pick at your nose while you are asleep. Wearing ordinary white cotton gloves has stopped lots of cases like that. Or if the bleeding happens at any time of day, it might be a tiny ulcer, which is a very common occurrence but can be easily cured by a simple treatment called cauterizing. Finally, if the bleeding is frequent, your doctor could have some special tests made to see whether your blood is such that it does not "clot" readily. If that is the case, you will not "grow out" of the nosebleeds just by waiting. Special treatment can be given to you, though. Note to Mrs. P.B.: Paget's Disease has no connection at all with heart disease. Dear Dr. Molner: I am 55 and have arthritis in shoulders and knees. I take a tablespoon of cod liver oil with orange juice before retiring. Will the cod liver oil lubricate my joints and help my con- dition?—L.B. No. This is a notion that somebody dreamed up — but if it worked, then we'd all prescribe it for our arthritic patients. Never take a chance on diabetes! For better understanding of this disease, write to Dr. Mol ner, Box 158, Dundee, III., for a copy of the book let, "Diabetes — The Sneaky Disease." Please enclose a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 25 cents in coin to cover cost of handling. Auld Lang Syne •25 YEARS AGO It was annouced that bids would be taken for construction of 4.86 miles of concrete pavement on US50 from Baldwin east to the Johnson County line. Fred Gardner was hired by the Franklin County commissioners as county engineer, replacing Harry J. Abbey who resigned. Sally Enedaker, 2, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Guy Snedaker, 818 W. 6th, was ill with whooping cough. 50 YEARS AGO Members of <lie Ottawa city council spent a long evening discussing fires and fire fighting in Ottawa. There had been 50 fires in Ottawa during the year 1912, with estimated loss placed at $44,655. One of the matters discussed at some length was the question of establishing a fire department station in North Ottawa at the corner of Logan and Cedar. Ottawa had a municipal rock pile and hoboes picked by police were handed a heavy hammer and put to work reducing ihe rocks to smaller sizes. Prayer For Today Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psalm 119:105.) PRAYER: Dear Father, we thank Thee for Thy Word, which is so real, precious, and vital to our spiritual lives. Make it glow around us and be as a bright light in the darkness of this world. In Jesus' name. Amen. 5:0t 4—Se» Hunt 9— Torey and Friends 13—Quick Draw McOrai 5:15 5—Whlrly Blrdi 6:110 4—Dragnet 9—Rebel 13—Scope-Kansas University 5:46 5—Newt 13—spurts With Div NtiMSj »:5S 13-Weather «:0« 4—Newt 6— New* •— News 13—News 6: Hi 4—Sports 6-9—Weather 6:15 4—News with Huntley-Brtnkley 5—Sports 9—News 13— Now* B:3S 6—Speak-Dp 0:3(1 4-13—Hallmark Hall of Fame 5—CBS Reports 9—Wagon Train 7:30 5-13—Doble Ulllls 9—Going My Way 8:00 4—Perry Como 5-13—Beverly Hillbillies UtfC 6—Dick Van Dyke 8—Our Man Higglns 13—Donns Reed 8: (10 4—Eleventh Hour 5-13—US Steel Hour 9—Naked City IU:UO 4-5-B-13—News 10:10 S-9-Weather 10:15 4—Johnny Carson S—Movie, "Julia Misbehaves" 9—Steve Allen 13—Weather (0:20 13—Sports 10:30 13—Lifeline 10:35 13—Stoney Burke 11:35 13—Peter Qunn 11:45 9—Man From Cochlse 12:00 4—News 12:05 4—Unity Dally Word 9—News 12: It 5—Speak Op 12:15 5—Movie, "Night At The Ritz'» 9—News 1:0(1 9—Almanae Newsree) 9—Faith for Our Times Thursday 5:55 4—Dally Word 8:00 4—Continental Classroom (Physics) 13—Continental Classroom (Government) 6:25 6—Postmark Mid-America n JoO 4—Operation Alphabet 13—Collcgs ot the Air 8:40 5— One Way to Safety • :5C 5—Farm S'tct* 1:00 4—Today 6—College of the Air 13—Rush Hour 7:30 5—Moment 01 Meditation 7:35 5—Cartoonlaad 7:45 5— King and Odls 7:50 9—Call to Worship 7:55 9—News 8:00 5-13—Caotaln Kangaroo 9—Columbia Lectures 8:30 9—Deputy and Felix 9:00 4—Say When 5—Jack LaLanne 9—Romper Room 13—Calendar 9:25 4—News 9:30 5-13—1 Love Lucy 4—Play Your Hunch 9—Divorce Court 10:00 5-13—McCoys 4—Price Is Right 10:30 5-13—Pete and Gladys 4—Concentration 9—Day in Court 10:55 9—News 11:00 4—First Impression 5-13—Love of Life 9—Jane Wyman 11:25 5-13—News 11:30 4—Truth or Consequences 5-13—Search For Tomorrow 9—Yours For A Song 11:45 5-13—Guiding Light U:55 4—News 12:00 Noon 4—HI Noon Cartoons 9—Ernie Ford 5-13—News 12:10 5—Speak Up 12:15 5—Sports 13—Farm Report 12:20 4—News, markets 5—Local Interview 12:30 4—Accent 8—Father Knows Best 5-13—As World Turns 1:00 4—Merv Griffin 6-13—Password 8—Movie, ''Return of the Bad Men" 1:30 5-13—House Party 1:55 4—News 8:00 4—Loretta Young 5-13—To Tell The Truth 2:25 5-13—News 9—News 2:30 4—Award Theater 9—Seven Keys 5-13—Millionaire 3:00 4—Match dame •613—Secret Storm 9—Queen for a Day 8:25 4—News 11:30 4—Make Room For Daddj 9—Who Do You Trust* 5-13—Edge of Night 4:00 4—Fun Time 5—Cousin Ken's Carnival 9—Torey and Friends 4:15 13—Turban's Land of Magic 4:30 9—Mickey Mouse Club *:Wi 4—See Hunt 9—Quick Draw McGiaw 13—Magle Ranch 5:1B 5—Whlrly Birds e::<0 4—Dragnet 9—Rebel 13—Dick Harp 5:45 5—News.

Religious Program Director Is "Nicest Job In Television By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Doris Ann, whose title is "manager, NBC-TV Network Religious Programs," maintains she has the nicest job in television and is prepared to prove it. As producer and majordomo of a weekly half-hour program on Tonight's TV Highlights A special, in color, on Channels 4 and 13 at 6:30, will be a Hall of Fame presentation, "Pygmalion," starring Julie Harris. Also on Channel 4, at 8 p.m., Perry Como will have as guests Peter Ldnd Hayes and Mary Healy. And in the singing department a special guest will be Anita Bryant.

Crawls Home After Injury HUTCHINSON, Kan; (AP) Robert Barr, 56, is blind in his left eye. He was crossing a downtown intersection Monday night when he was struck from the left by a car that sped away. There was no one about, he told police Tuesday, so he crawled lome. It took 2'/£ hours. Police found blood at the spot where the accident occurred and 27 feet away where Barr was hurled after the impact. He suffered cuts and gashes about the face and legs, Bob Kennedy To Visit KC KANSAS CITY (AP) - Atty. •Jen. Robert Kennedy will meet M'iefly with federal law enforcement officials in Kansas City next Tuesday. Kennedy also will hold a news conference on his four-hour stopover on a trip from Chicago to 5 Angeles. the network that comes at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Miss Ann points out that the program rarely competes with sports events and therefore is infrequently bumped off the channel. Because the programs are classified as religious, they have no commercial sponsor —the network counts the show as a pure public service. The program's audience has been analyzed by researchers and found to hold about equal numbers of men, women and children, and also found what Miss Ann calls "the churched and the un- churched." All of this is most stimulating to the shin, blonde woman who has made religious programming her specialty for the past 11 years, and who is partly responsible for its change of character. A religious program once consisted merely of a camera and microphone in front of a preacher. Today it can be a strong dama on vital, even controversial themes, a dramatization of a book — "The Dairy of Anne Frank" appeared as one of her shows before it was a stage play or movie—or a folk singing group, or an intellectual discussion. The half hour is apportioned among the three principal religious groups of the nation, approximately in terms of their membership. Of the 52 weeks, 28 are assigned to Protestant groups 16 to Roman Catholics and eighl to Jews. She works primarily through official organizations connected with the various faiths who supply the manuscripts and talent —with NBC and Miss Ann retaining the right to reject anything they feel is not up to the show's normal standards. NBC pays for the air time and provides the sets, studios, equipment and promotion. It fearlessly has tackled themes ranging from prejudice to communism and "if it is done well, it is as entertaining as anything on the air," she insists.
