OTTAWA HERALD Pajt Four Editorials Wednesday, Feb. 13, 1983 Money Doesn't Matter Across the country, and actually around the world, Kansas City is famous for its municipal airport. This fame results not from the plush facilities of the airport but from its proximity to the downtown area. This closeness has attributed greatly to the development of the airport. It also has caused problems. Planes landing and taking off do so across the Missouri River and Quality Hill, both of which are located at the end of the port's south runway. Occasionally a small plane doesn't make it and ends up in the river. But the commercial planes, ranging from DCS's to the big jets, seldom have trouble. In fact, the recent jet crash at Kansas City was the first in several decades. Pilots are wary of Kansas City because of the tight squeeze, and the occasional fogs which drift across the river. Never-the-less, municipal officials, the airlines and the public like the airport. However, years back the limitations of the municipal field were recognized. Work started on the development of Mid- Continent International, a field located some distance north of Kansas City, on To Your Good Health high ground away from the river and the city. With one hand, the federal government has poured $3 1 /£ million into the development of this airport. With the other hand it has allocated Kansas City federal funds for the continued improvement of facilities at the municipal airport. Now with the city embarked on extensive construction of an airport ter- minial at municipal, the government comes along and says it will allocate no more federal dollars for the close-in field. The future lies on top of the hills overlooking the river valley, at Mid- Continent International. The Federal Aviation Authority has laid down the law. It disregards the fact that another arm of the federal government, the post office department, has been urging Kansas City for years to improve mail handling facilities at municipal. In the long run, Uncle Sam will have his way, and the major airlines will move out of municipal and up on the hill. Millions which have been spent near the river will be wasted. All because of the lack of planning and co-ordination by the bureaucrats. Oh, well, so what. It's only money. Your money.

MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: My sister says a woman's safe days are 14 days before her period. I say it's 14 days afterwards. What do you say?—P.N. By "safe days," you of course mean the time when pregnancy cannot occur. It so happens that ttie fertile and infertile times in the cycle are not nearly as exact as some people think — or some wish. For pregnancy the ovum or egg must first emerge from the ovary. Then it must be fertilized within a reasonably short time by the male sperm. For women with very regular cycles, the time of ovulation tends to follow a more or less steady pattern. For irregular cycles, ovulation isn't so easy to predict. But regardless of the duration of the cycle, it is thought that ovulation, and hence the fertile period, generally occurs 14 days or so before the beginning of the next menstrual period. Thus in a perfectly regular 28-day cycle, ovulation would occur around the 14th day after the beginning of the preceding period, or 14 days before the beginning of the next one. The latter probably applies for the 35-or 45-day cycles — 14 days before the next one. But knowing when the next one will start isn't so easy. The life of the ovum or egg is probably about 48 hours; life of the male germ cell may be somewhat longer. Therefore the time during which pregnancy may occur can extend over three or four days. By jph This And That This year's $99 billion federal budget allegedly will stimulate the nation's economy. Wouldn't it be cheaper to give the economy a case of Geritol? Headlines from the women's page: Expanded Suburbs Increase Women's Slacks Popularity. But the same shouldn't go for expanded hips. Progress item from the defense front: The Air Force has awarded a lieutenant its third highest decoration for "unselfish devotion of time and energy above and beyond the call of duty." He designed a money . saving swimming pool for air bases. JPH In a neighbor's home when he begins making motions toward going to his golf club along about church time on Sunday morning, she issues a terse directive. "Pray now, play later." Nothing warms one on a zero morning like rolling along in a five-year-old Plymouth past a tow- truck hauling a new Cadillac to get its engine started. The chief of our forces in the Pacific predicts that Communist China will touch off its first nuclear explosion ivithin the next year or two. He doesn't explain, though, which it will worry the most, Washington or Moscow. A prominent astronomer believes that out in the Milky Way there are millions of other plants capable of supporting life. But has life on any of them reached this world's high state of civilization in which it has perfected the means of making the place unlivable? Introduced in the New Hampshire legislature is a measure which would forbid the public display of • female leg more than one inch above the knee. Give them an inch, though, and they'll take § <pil* Because of variations in individuals, it is rather risky to try to say positively that any patricular time is absolutely "safe." The greatest probability of pregancy is somewhere in mid-cycle. The first few days after the period, and the last few days before onset of the next one, are in general the "safest," but beyond a margin of a few days, pregnancy becomes increasingly possible. You might think of it as walking on a frozen lake, ice around the edges and open water in the middle. The farther you get from shore, the thinner the ice and the more risk of falling in, but there isn't any way of establishing the exact distance at which you will go through the ice. There are two ways of looking at it. I get at least as many letters from people who want to become pregnant. Dear Dr. Molner: I am 14 and the hah- on my legs is black. I asked my mother if I could have and she said no, but that I could use cream hair remover. My home economics teacher said this would open the pores and cause more hair to grow. So is it better to shave? I'm confused.— U.Z. I can't blame you for being confused. Neither shaving nor cream, removers will increase the growth of hair, and which is better depends on personal preference. Dear Dr. Molner: I have had hepatitis for several months but still feel sick at my stomach and become very tired. I have been told that I will get well. I have also been told that I will never get entirely over it. Which opinion do you think is right?—Mrs. A.T. You'll get over it, but it takes time. There is reason to suspect that many patients may, after fully recovering, still harbor the virus but it doesn't bother them. It is important only to the extent that we are reluctant to accept blood donations from people who have had the disease. Troubled with varicose veins? To make sure you are doing all you can to relieve the problem, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., requesting my booklet, "How To Deal With Varicose Veins," enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover the cost of handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Miss Rose Farrell of the Poole Store went to Chicago to attend a corset school. John Lawrence reported that peas he had planted in his garden three weeks before were starting to sprout. Elm trees were being banded in and around Ottawa in the annual battle against elm worms. 50 YEARS AGO An evangelist conducting a series of revival meetings at the First Baptist Church took about 200 children on a tour of Ottawa's Streets, all riding in wagons and singing hymns. The wagons paused at 2nd and Main for a gospel concert. A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Bliss of Ottawa. Simon Riedy of Williamsburg was here to transact business. Prayer For Today I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. . . Every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. (John 15:1-2.) PRAYER: 0 Lord, our God, the giver of all perfect gifts, we glorify Thee for for all Thy manifold blessing to us. Forgive our erring ways. Help us to be worthy branches of Christ, the vine, in whom we have life, and who taught us to pray, ft-Whlrly Bird* 8i3V 4—Dragnet •—Rebel 13—Scope-Kama!

More Emphasis On Talent In Next Year's TV Shows By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP)-A quiet behind-the-scenes television success story is in the making: David Susskind, a few years ago one of the most active and prolific independent producers and packagers, is making a network comeback. Susskind, head of Talent Associates and host of a syndicated discussion program, "Open End," describes the last couple of television seasons as "being in Coventry," meaning that no network would hire him. He believes that doors were firmly closed because he spoke out — criticizing sponsors, complaining about quality of the television product, and appearing before the Federal Communications Commission to repeat his gripes. But the 1963 Susskind has either mellowed—or changed his mind: Richmond News Film On Chinese Feature Of Sunday Church Service By MABEL CHANDLER The film, "The Chinese in Dispersion," will be shown Sunday evening, Feb. 17, at the Methodist Community Church. Karen Tice presented her music pupils in recital in the Music room at the grade school Sunday afternoon. Piano pupils participating were Bonnie Roeckers, Glenda Wolfe, Mayme Pedrow, Janice and Diane Cooper, and accordion, Coleen Riley. Lillian McGhee is an accordion pupil but was unable to be present. Mr. and Mrs. Francis Kueser have named their son, born Feb. 5, James Francis. Mr. and Mrs. Carl Pitts, Carroll, Iowa, brought his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Everett Pitts, here Wednesday and spent the night Maharis Off "Route 66" HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Actor George Maharis has been suspended from his costarring role on the "Route 66" television show. Producer Herbert B. Leonard gave no reason for the suspension but a spokesman for Lancer Productions said Tuesday Mahar- is had been absent repeatedly because of illness. Maharis, in New York, had no comment. Actor Glenn Corbett has been hired to play opposite Martin Milner on the show, the spokesman said. All Astronauts. Wives Together HOUSTON, Tex. (AP)-The nation's 16 astronauts and their wives got together for the first time at an informal buffet supper last weekend, the John H. Glenns said Tuesday. The supper was held at the Glenn home. "No one was missing," said Glenn, the first American to make an orbital flight. "It was sort of a first for all of us—the first time we 16 fellows and our wives have been together for such a very informal and enjoyable evening." with his sister, Mrs. Duane Ped- row, and family. The parents left Friday for Bellflower, Calif. Mr. and Mrs. Antone Gretencord moved Saturday to their new home on Cherry Street. To honor her son, Billy on his 9th birthday, Mrs. Ed Anderson entertained seven of his schoolmates Sunday afternoon. Mr. and Mrs. Harold Robertson were in Kansas City Tuesday to be with their daughter, Mrs. Joan Kratsberg, who underwent major surgery at Bethany Hospital. Mrs. Jane Setter, who has been with her children since she was released from the Anderson County Hospital last November, returned to her home last week. COMING SOON! ,AOARRYlF.ZANUCft, The personal story Denim! o sex survey... from the controversial best-silling novel, "Next year television will bt marked with quality in program* ming," predicts the reformed gadfly. "Programs -will be custom- tailored to talent. Sponsors show signs of making more mature judgments, recognizing quality and going after it. In 1955 and after I thought television was going to hell—Hollywood slop was engulfing it. Well, I don't think so now—certainly not next year." Susskind has sold a series to CBS, "East Side, West Side," starring George C. Scott as a social worker, and probably will produce some of NBC's "Show of the Week" series next season. The April title of an ABC show may well be "Mr. Smith Goes to Oblivion," when the series, starring Fess Parker as a freshman senator in Washington, will ba dropped. It will be replaced by a country-music, folk-song half hour called "Hootenanny," with Jack Linkletter, son of Art, as head man. NBC will sign Johnny Carson to another year with the network, which pretty well disposes of those rumors that the "Tonight Show" will have a new host come fall.
