OTTAWA HERALD Pag* Four Tuesday, Feb. 12, 1963 Editorials Mental Health Financing President Kennedy, in a special message to Congress on the subject of mental health, urged "bold new programs" to rehabilitate the mentally ill and help prevent new cases of mental illness. Among the needs he listed for an across-the-board legislative program were new community mental health center's, for bringing the mentally ill back to a useful life, and preventing new cases earlier; and more trained personnel and facilities for training and rehabilitation of the mentally ill and retarded. Few would quarrel with this goal. He further maintains that the community mental health center can be the focus of care, diagnosis, rehabilitation and emergency service. It aims at prevention as well as treatment. People of this area are well aware To Your Good Health of these facts for they have this type of service available in the Franklin County Guidance Center. The Center is financed by a half-mill county tax levy, a $3,000 share of United Funds, patient fees and contributions. The Guidance Center is co-operating with local educators in a new type of program in addition to the continued work of diagnosis and evaluation, testing and counseling. It has extended its services to persons beyond the county boundaries. We need an accelerated mental health program. The question is: Do we want to get it through a federal aid set-up ? Do we want to get full 100 per cent value for our money by raising and spending it locally, or do we want to send it to Washington and get 50 per cent of it back? Who's Your Doc? Casey Or Kildare? Ease For Migraine Pain Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MULNEK Dear Dr. Molner: What causes migraine headaches and can they be prevented? I was 13 when I had my first one and it occurred only 15 minutes after I had bumped my head. When I get one I first start seeing black spots, then white jagged lines appear for about 30 minutes. Then I can see again . but I get terrible headaches and the light hurts my eyes.—R.H. I've dealt with migraine headaches at great length in my booklet, "How to Tame Headaches." (A copy is available to anyone who sends 20 cents in coin to cover printing and handling costs and a stamped .self-addressed envelope, to Dr. Molner, in care of Box 158, Dundee, HI.) The cause is not absolutely established, but it is known to involve an over-dilation of the blood vessles in the brain. Tense people, perfectionists who have to have everything just so, are the more usual victims of migraines, and they tend to begin from the very early teens to the mid-20's. By the age of 50, most people have passed the "Migraine age," but that's a long time to wait. Stopping a migraine isn't often successful, but various drugs and their combinations, largely based on ergotamine tartrate, can ward off or ease an attack — if taken in time. This means that the patient must learn to recognize the signs that precede an attack. These vary from person to person. Being irritable, or forgetful, or depressed or the like are signs for some. Others notice that their fingers swell a little. They may get ringing noises in the ears. Becoming too tired, or upset and angry, or a feeling of being under pressure are things that help trigger an : attack. I doubt very much that the "bump on the head" had much to do with your first attack. Indirectly, it might. It annoyed and perhaps worried you, and your nerves became tense, and you were at an age when susceptible people often begin having migraines. And there you were experiencing for the first time the prostrating sort of headache which, according to estimates, may afflict as many as 8,000,000 Americans. The spots and flashes of light are quite common with migraine. Some people have temporary By jph This And That The persuasive language used by Senator Mor: in getting both the shipowners and the dockworkers to settle their strike likely can be summarized in 10 words: "The President told me to tell you settle— or else." Nothing brightens a wom- • an's day like putting on her sweetest smile and purring to another, "My clear, I think your fur coat has stood up remarkably well." JPH There is an easy way out for today's young men who dread making decisions, Get married. It is announced that one Richard Nixon will appear as a guest on the Jack Parr program early next month. Nixon? Nixon? Now where have we heard that name before? One day last month zero temperatures were reported from 44 of the United States and this never has been recorded before. The record will probably stand until Hell freezes over. No man who asks for nothing better fur dinner five nights a week than a steak and a salad ever has betrayed his country'. Unless he is the sort who asks for Roquefort dressing. I ' The Robert Kennedys are expecting their eighth child. As has been remarked before the attorney general doesn't do things in small ways. It cost the government $4^ million to keep James Meredith in the University of Mississippi for one semester. Who said there was no federal aid for • higher education? "blind spots" for a short time. You ought to be interested in the headache booklet and, I feel pretty sure, will learn some genuinely useful tricks in stalling off migraines. Dear Dr. Molner: I have had gall stones for 12 years and have gotten by until now. My side is very sore around the kidneys and under my ribs. My doctor says to have the stones removed. My husband doesn't think it is worth while, or doesn't want to spend that much money. My daughter says it is mostly in my head. The doctor urges surgery before I get an ab- cessed liver. X-rays show that the stones are quite large.—Mrs. M.F.O. I'm shocked. Maybe you've let yourself become a doormat, but it's time to quit. Do as your doctor says, and get some, comfort, besides avoiding what can become very serious — and cost your husband a lot more money. Make your plans with your doctor, and go to the hospital with as little delay as possible. You are the one in pain and in danger, not your family. Mrs. P.N.M: The baby is due in March and you haven't been to your doctor yet? Go at once. He'll probably stop that severe nausea, and then tackle those other problems you have. (The best time to start seeing the doctor is as soon as you suspect you are pregnant.) "Don't Quit Because Of Arthritis" is Uie 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, III. enclosing a long, self-addressed stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover cost of handling. AuId Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Ralph Raffelock, 6, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Raffelock, was ill with chickenpox. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Edward Ferguson of near Norwood. The baby weighed 10 pounds and was named Fredrick Ray. J. G. Given, employed by the Vincent Monument Works, was painfully injured when a heavy grave marker he was helping install fell over, striking his ankle. 50 YEARS AGO Water was turned into the newly constructed city water main extension on East Logan Street. N. C. Kendall was injured in a run-away while hauling coal for the Lester Greenhouse. Dr. F. C. Herr, who had been ill for several days with a severe cold, was able to be out. Prayer For Today As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. (John 15:9.) PRAYER: Our Father, grant that the love with which Christ has loved us and redeemed us may be evident in us today. May our love to Thee express itself in acts of love to our fellowmen. We pray in the name of Christ, who first loved us. Amen. Ottawa Herald By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP)-I see much more of Perry Mason than I see of my lawyer. Drs. Kildare and Casey come to visit me infinitely more often than does my family physician and I know them a lot better. The only psychiatrist and trained nurses of my acquaint- ance are named Bassett, Thorpe and Lucas. I know my way around Alden General better than I do my home-town hospital. Widows Lucy Carmichael and Vivian Bagley drop into my living room once a week and are most entertaining. What's more, I can relax when they are there, need not make conversation and don't have to dress up for them or offer them refreshments. There's never any problem about their overstaying their welcome. They depart on a split second schedule— or I can dispatch them sooner by a mere twist of my wrist, with no hurt feelings. I'm not often at home during the daylight hours, but women who are and who turn to television over the years, get to know the soap opera characters much better than they know their own relatives or friends. Why not? They see Vanessa and hear her troubles every day. Young Dr. Malone usually does more talking in the afternoon than many husbands do when they drag home from work, tired, to bury themselves in a newspaper or to watch the fights It is no wonder that the public responds so warmly to "television people." Many of them are more real and closer to the viewers than actual acquaintances. Johnny Carson, whose late evening programs have been notably light on big-name guests, has a power-house booked for next Monday: Joan Crawford and Robert Taylor. The former will receive an award, the latter will plug the adventure series in which he'll star on NBC next season. Published daily except Sunday and Holidays Second class postage at Ottawa, Kansas.

(AP)Jimmy (the Schnozz) Durante admitted today he had a birthday— his 70th—"but I don't want everybody to know about it." The veteran entertainer, interviewed at a hotel where he is appearing, described it this way: "Thank God I had another birthday. Da party? Sure. It was after da show an' they asked me if I didn't want to come in and have some tea. It was a big surprise to me. We had a wonderful time. "Mrs. Morris Lansburgh (whose husband owns the hotel) gave it. He's in Las Vegas. A few of my friends was there—George Raft, Eleanor Holm, Rocky Marciano, Little Jack Carter, Gene Bayless. Peter Lawford and a lot of others "I wanted to go four rounds wit' Rocky, but he wouldn't take me on. Everybody had a lot of fun." Durante does an hour and 15- minute show and keeps going night after night. "No other entertainers—just us," he said. Between shows Monday night he entertained the Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association at their annual banquet. The record says Durante was born in Brooklyn in 1893 and that he started in show business at 17, which means he's starting his 54th year on the stage. "Who Ui' hell knows?" he snorted. "In my day, we didn't have no doctors. Everybody had midwives. Maybe I picked da date at random. Nobody had birth certificates in them days. "I could'a said 1910 or some- in'. Maybe I should'a picked a date like that. I had a lot of trouble gettin' to Europe in 1936, cause I never had no birth certificate. I never did find one. "But it's been a lot of fun, and I'll go on as long as I can—as long as they come to see me and I can make 'em happy."
