OTTAWA HERALD ft* / -• ' Editorials Monday,, Feb. 11, 1963 Subsidizing Sports Kansas City has a chance to become the home of the Dallas Texans, this year's champions of the fledgling American Football League. The Texans are interested in a new home, for an obvious reason. They aren't making it where they are now located because of competition with the other Dallas team, the Cowboys, in the older National Football League. Kansas City's rotund, embattled mayor, H. Roe Bartle, up for re-election soon, is making every effort to get the Texans moved to his town. His city council appears lined up to go along with him. But to get the job done, Kansas City has to make a few concessions, like $1 a year rental of the stadium, spending between $300,000 and $400,000 in public funds to bring the stadium up to the standard the Texans demand. Then there is the matter of 25,000 advance ticket sales which the city must guarantee. And if the whole deal doesn't To Your Good Health work out for the Texans, owners of the club want an escape clause which would allow them to pull out in case they can't make ends meet. Pro football is great entertainment as any sports fan will attest. It also can be f drawing card for a community. It can, too, improve the image of Kansas City which heaven knows needs working on. But the real question that must be answered is whether or not a city should subsidize entertainment. In effect this is what could happen. The taxpayers will foot the bill, for stadium improvements, and pick up the check if the gate receipts fall off. It seems to us that rmblic funds mifjht be better spent in other area.s, such as stronger police protection, a better educational system, more efficient fire department, improved trafficways which would benefit all the people, not just the 45,000 who would be crowded into a stadium on a few Sunday afternoons a year. Television Log Channel 4,, NBC Channels 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Monday Mother At 65? Show Me Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: What is the possibility of pregnancy in later years? What is the average age for a woman to start and finish menopause? Do women in their 30's ever go through the change of life? How long after she appears to have ceased periods is she still in danger of becoming pregnant? Please comment on the following: 1 — A woman who said she had not had a period in five years yet became pregant and at 54 had a beautiful normal daughter. 2 — There was a write-up a few years ago which said a woman in Arkansas who never had a child became pregnant at 65. 3 — How much possibility does a woman of 60 have of becoming pregnant? Is there any age when she is absolutely safe from becoming so? There are so many old wives' tales.— M.E.N. Guess FIT have to break my good resolution. I'd resolved not to pay any attention to letters about "how old must a woman be, before she is absolutely sure of not becoming pregnant." I've answered it many times already. But every time I do, the same question comes right back again. What is this? Are some of my readers just trying to see if I'll change my mind? Well, I won't — not unless different facts appear. The answer is this: Chances of pregnancy decline as the years pass. There is no special age, but for all practical purposes, pregnancy will not occur one year after the last period. The average age for menopause is about 45. It can be several years earlier or several years later. It is possible for menopause to occur in the 30's but it is rare. When I say rare, I mean rare. And generally Byfph This And That The rigors of winter are much more easily withstood in homes that are not equipped with an outside thermometer. Most women become quite impatient over their spouses' errors, but they would find it much more of a trial to have with men who invariably were right. A dinner salute to Barry Goldwater is to be held in Washington the last of this month, and fittingly the menu should be most conservative. This eliminates caviar and champagne automatically, of course, and makes string beans obligatory. But which is the more conservative, roast beef or fried chicken? President Kennedy feels that cutting taxes by around 15 per cent will greatly stimulate the economy. Why not slash them by 30 per cent and enjoy a boom? Free commercial: Most instant coffees are in- mediate but insipid. Our research has revealed only one that produces a brew which is rich, full - flavored and has the proper coffee bite. Yuban. Better still, for travelers, it is available in small sacks, each containing enough for a single, strong cup. Local businessman, who recently learned (he hard way, says that there are two sides to every argument unless the Internal Revenue Department is one of the participants. A new record for reaching for a silver lining with which to line a cloud has been set by the esteemed Kansas City Star. It editorialized that this has been a great winter for ice skating. ft. shake* a man to find his son showing the same disregard for his advice that he once had for his father's. there is something unusual about the case, or health is impaired. Generally, but not always. For a final fact, I dug this up from the U.S. Vital Statistics for 1948 (there may be a later figure but I didn't find it, and I don't think there would be much difference anyway): Only one baby in 20,000 in that year was born to a mother who was 50 years old or more. Doesn't that sort of convince the doubters? There are cases of women who, not reaching menopause until a good bit later than average, have had babies at the age of 52, but despite all the rumors, it is difficult, and so far as I have ascertained it has been impossible, to get proof of pregnancy later than 52. As to the woman who said she hadn't had a period in five years yet "had a baby at 54," all I can say is this: Who is she? Where is she? I've never yet seen a factual answer to this. A woman in Arkansas having a baby at 65? I'm from Missouri! Possibility of pregnancy past 60? About as much chance as there is of me winning the high jump in the next Olympics. Dear Dr. Molner: Is it O.K. to soak a wool blanket in ice water and place on a person's bare chest to reduce fever?—W.D. I'd call it a rather drastic method, a shock to the patient, and messy besides. Sponging with tepid water; cold cloths on the forehead; and im mersing the wrists in cool water are simpler and easier methods. Dear Dr. Molner: What is uremic poisoning?— Mrs. S.J. It results from faulty functioning of the kidneys. Uric acid and certain nitrogen compounds are wastes which the kidneys filter out and normally discharge in urine. When something prevents removal of these toxic materials, uremic poisoning results. What are ulcers? How should they be treated? What can you do to help rid yourself of ulcers and stay rid of them? For answers, read Dr. Molner's helpful booklet, How To Heal Peptic Ulcers And Keep Them Healed.

Prayer For Today Whosoever. . . shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:4.) PRAYER: 0 Lord, we bring Thee humbled hearts. Seal this humility within us that nevermore may any other spirit possess us. May we daily imitate the life and service of Him who said, "I am meek and lowly in heart," for only thus can we find peace for our souls. We ask in His name.

Dakotas," on Channel 9. Title of this one is "Crisis at High Banjo." That title sounds pretty western, you gotta admit. At the same hour, but on Channel 4, there's a movie titled "The Bravados," and that sounds pretty western, too. It's a 1958 film, starring Gregory Peck, and with some other familiar names in the cast, including Joan Collins and Stephen Boyd. Then, at 7:30 there's "The Riffleman," on Channel 9. This'n is about a rattlesnake that's just about to bite Lucas McCain. They got a lot of them rattlesnakes in the west. Getting away from the western stuff, you can see a special at 8:30 on Channels 4 and 13. Title is "Eisenhower on Lincoln." Eisenhower discusses the Civil War president.

Perry Mason Wins Hospital Case, Too By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - "It was something of a miracle," said Raymond Burr. "I haven't felt so good in 20 years." Burr had returned to his six- year stand as television's Perry Mason. He was back after a serious operation which required four weeks of guest stars to sub in court for him. The actor was operated on a few weeks ago for intestinal polyps, and he has been quoted as saying that they were cancerous. However, he has declined any further statements beyond declaring that he was fortunate in all regards. "If you do have a growth, you are lucky to have it in the intestinal region," he remarked. "If you have it on the liver or some other vital organ, you're in trou- ile. But with the intestine only some of the troubled area needs to be snipped out and you're OK.

Stopped Free Fags On Campus Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Heigele, 603 S. Cedar, report that Mrs. David Kester, Eureka, who was responsible for a campus edict prohibiting the distribution of free cigarettes at state schools, is a former Ottawa teacher. Mrs. Kester, wife of the county attorney at Eureka, wrote to William Ferguson, attorney general, saying she understood that giving away cigarettes on the campuses was a practice and she thought it should be stopped in view of the state law and the current con troversy over cigarettes.- Mrs. Hester taught at Lincoln School a number of years while her husband was in University of Kansas. Following graduation from KU, he taught in Ottawa High School two years. The Kesters lived in an apartment at the Heigele home. Insurance On Everything Porter - Spears AGENCY Tom Porter — Phone CH 2-3007 — George Spears pletely recovered. I am convinced. The operation not only removed the growth; it also made some corrective measures that have put me in better condition that I have known for years." Burr's problem began jm his boyhood. "First came an appendectomy when I was young," he said. "The appendix burst when I was sailing up a river, and it was nine hours before I got to a hospital. Later I had to have another operation to cure an obstruction caused by scar tissue. "I always got it in the same place. I was wounded there when I was at Okinawa. That's how 1 first got fat: Lying on my back for nine months in a naval hospital." Even his co-workers on the Perry Mason show are amazed at his fast comeback. "I was walking around four hours after the operation," he said. "I only spent five days in the hospital, then five days at home. Then I went down to my place in the Bahamas and was skindiving; I found an old Spanish cannon at 40 feet which dated back to before the British came to the island." The demands of Burr's television role have been a problem of the long-running series. With his immense load of dialog on the weekly hour, he may have the most exacting job in show business. He has averaged one or two hospital visits per season. "When I started the show six years ago, I began getting tired after the fifth or sixth show," h« said. "I seldom caught up. But now I have more staying power than I ever had. I can do things physically that were impossible before." As proof, he outlined a vigorous schedule for himself. He is committed for a seventh year of Per* ry Mason—it may return to Saturday night next season. He plans to film two pilots for his own company, shoot a feature film and engage in other activities, including his thriving art gallery in Beverly Hills. Removals Altic, Orren, to 808 8. Oak; BitU.
