OTTAWA HERALD Page Eleven Editorials Thursday, Feb. 14, 1963 Invading Education At the behest of the Kansas Department of the American Legion, three members of the Kansas Legislature have introduced a special education measure in the current session. The bill would require all high school students to take 15 clock hours of instruction regarding communism, its goals, methods and other ideologies which threaten this country. This 15 hours of instruction would be a prerequisite to graduation. Such a measure is part of the American Legion's continuing fight for the American way of life. In our mind, this bill raises two questions. First, is it necessary? Second, is it proper? Relative to the first question, most Kansas high schools now require certain courses in history, government and the American Constitution, the Bill of Rights and our way of life. Properly tought, these subjects should explain to students the nature, To Your Good Health methods and dangers of communism. They also should lead young Americans to read, study and understand happenings in the world today. This makes the proposed 15 hours in instruction unnecessary. On the second question, we question seriously if our state legislature should legislate specifically concerning what is taught in our high schools. The state department of public instruction outlines the general areas of study, but the specifics properly are left to the local boards of education and local administrators. Intrusion of the legislature in this matter sets a precedent for invasion in others. As well-intentioned as the Kansas Legion is, this measure should be rejected. The efforts of the Legion would be felt with greater force were they directed through local posts on local boards and were they aimed at total educational needs and not directed at a single objective. Everyone Needs A Doctor By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: Can you tell me all I should know about having plastic surgery done on my nose? The cost, etc. I decided to write to you since I don't have a doctor.— CHARLES H. Yes, and I might even tell you some things that you didn't ask. Or ask you some questions. Why don't you have a doctor? Doubtless you'll say it's because you haven't needed one. But sooner or later you will, and as far as that goes, having a doctor may prevent some very minor symptom from growing into a bigger one. Or he may well protect you from some danger. Have you had your polio shots? Is you tentanus protection up to Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel* 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABO Thondaj . . ..... .,_ ..... . ... .. „„,..,,, One of the commonest of all complaints about medical care is the protest, "I was terribly sick last night and called five doctors, but I couldn't get one to come." With rare exceptions these complaints are from people who don't have a doctor of their own. Heaven knows, doctors are busy enough as it is. I'm not trying to drum up trade for the medical profession. I'm not trying to lay down any rules as to how often you should see your doctor. You and he can work that out as time passes. I'm not saying what you should have in the way of examination. He and you can agree on that. I do say that just having a doctor who knows you is a wise precaution. It is a great relief for the nerves when an emergency arises. If there's a hospital for which you have high regard, get a doctor on its staff. If you are completely in the dark, you can always call the county medical society and ask for the names of two Byjph This And That Valentine's Day invariably recalls Dorothy Parker's brief but epic poem dedicated to the occasion: Candy's dandy — But liquor's quicker. In a Topeka hotel not long ago 21 prominent Kansans were trapped for 55 minutes in a stalled automatic elevator. They whiled away their time reading the sign clearly posted in the cage which said, "capacity 16 persons." . On his inaugural day the governor g o t his 19-gun salute. It wasn't too much of a tribute to the marksmanship of the National Guard that no one got hit, unless it was JPH the two or three who showed up at the reception in a half-shot condition. • i Friend of ours gave up smoking six weeks ago and still is sticking stoutly to his resolution. His wife confidentially reports that she's not yet sure what it has done for his health but it has ruined his disposition. First the United States pulled the rug out from promised Skybolt missiles. Then the weather bureau slipped England the worst in half a century. Finally De Gaulle pulled the rug out again by vetoing Britain's admission to the Common Market. In such circumstances it takes a nimble British government to keep from falling on its face. It is every writer's unrealizable ambition to write as well as he imagined he was when he first became a writer. At a local coffee circle yesterday morning one of the regulars asked that his chair be saved for for him while he wai gone a few minutes. He had, he said, to take his work break. It appears there is an even chance that Iowa will hive legalized sale of liquor by the drink by the time it is gin and tonic time again. Will this make the state's rich landscape even lusher? or three doctors in your vicinity. And so much for that. Concerning the nose, first discuss your case with a plastic surgeon. (Again, either inquire at a ma jor hospital, or the medical society.) Since you are a man (and fairly young,) it is probable that your wish for a different nose is perhaps more urgent than mere attractiveness. Physical appearance can, in some cases, become a severe handicap in business and is one's attitude. But it's also possible, unless you get the opinion of somebody else, to over-estimate the degree of need, and perhaps to miscalculate just what is feasible. So, from one source or another, find a good plastic surgeon and discuss these questions with him. A sketch showing what can be done may be of considerable help to you in deciding. The cost will be several hundred dollars. Closer than that, I can't say since I don't know anything about your particular case. The surgeon will be glad to give you estimates on the operation itself, and the probable length of time in the hospital. Dear Dr. Molner: I have had palpitations for a good many years, attacks lasting from 15 to 20 minutes to about two hours, yet my doctor says my heart and blood pressure are normal. I get to perspiring and find it hard to breathe.—A.W. There arc other causes for exactly the same symptoms. The thyroid may be overactive. There may be a drop in blood sugar. Excessive smoking or excessive coffee • drinking can be the cause, and with these, an amount that is satisfactory for one person may be drastically excessive for another. Note to R.P.B.: The drug you mention is one of the tranquilizers. Along with other treatment, it has been used successfully in cases of emotionally disturbed or hyperactive children, to calm them dbwn and help get them back on a more normal keel. Acne is one of the most terrible problems of growing up. If you are afflicted with this aggravation, or if you have children who are, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI, for a copy of his helpful and comforting booklet, Acne — The Teenage Problem. Please enclose a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope, and 20 cents in coin to cover handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO A Lincoln Day Club was formed here with Basil W. Kelsey, of Ottawa, as president; Lowell Whitla, of Wellsville, as first vice president; J. H. Wilson, of Ottawa, as second vice president; and Mrs. C. O. Weedman of near Ottawa as secretary-treasurer. Mr. and Mrs. Walter Hull spent the weekend in Wichita visiting Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Sears, former Ottawans. Dr. C. A. Scrivener went to Chicago to attend a mid-winter dental clinic. 50 YEARS AGO The Kansas Howe of Representatives passed a "minimunvwage-for-women" bill. Included in the benefits of the bill was provision for a minimum wage for domestic help. Hired girls would receive a minimum of $6 per week, but the employer could deduct 15 cents per meal and 15 cents for each nights lodging. Union printers of Ottawa and other Kansas towns were urging legislators to vote against a bill that would call for all township and county printing to be done in the state printing plant.

D. ADAMS He Wanted To See Dad's Old Home A. D. Adams, Alberta Beach, Alberta, Canada, was an Ottawa visitor this week, coming here to look over the scenes that were familiar to his parents in an earlier day. His father, John Quincy Adams lived at Imes, east of Ottawa, and was a beekeeper before moving to Ottawa in 1893. The family left Ottawa in 1906 to move to Canada. The visitor from Canada also is a beekeeper and was en route to Sacramento, Calif., on business in connection with the bee industry. In Canada he uses some of the bee equipment his father used at Imes along with modern equipment he has purchased. He visited a number of places in Ottawa and was particularly interested in the residence at 711 Ash, a house which his grandfather and father built. Laff-A-Day 2-14 © Kin,- I'mtum fpOtaw.

Electric brooding is saving an average of l l /2 pigs per litter for thousands of farmers who are using infra-red heat lamps to play nursemaid to newborn pigs. Not only are new pigs protected from chilling, in the first few vital days after farrowing, but crowding and smothering losses are also reduced. Pig brooders equipped with low-cost infra-red heat lamps cost little to operate, but wil) give you extra dollars from your pig crop. Electric brooding is another way electricity is helping to provide profits and conveniences on farms. Build your own pig brooder: Construct a rigid barrier to provide a protected area for the little pigs. Suspend the heat lamp, with a wire or chain, at least 24 inches above the bedding. Use a keyless porcelain lamp receptacle and a heavy duty cord. A metal reflector shield over the lamp is recommended to provide protection against moisture and accidental •breakage.
