OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Saturday, February 18, 1963 Saturday Notebook Loafing at mid-morning recently, we watched workmen next door to The Herald haul out the A&P fixtures which were aold at auction on a recent Sunday. When the grocery firm moved into its new plush store a block east, most of the fixtures remained behind. This led us to wondering what happens to old store furnishings. Part of them, we learned, were bought by speculators who make a business of buying up such items as dairy cases, walk-in freezers and big counters. Later in the week we learned some of the fixtures which once held baby food, cornflakes and canned beans were moved over west to the Sheldon Truck & Tractor Co. John Sheldon explained why. International Harvester, which makes the implements John sells, has made a pilot plant out of the firm here when it comes to selling implement parts. John says it is a self-service arrangement. The A&P counters have been painted, re-arranged and stocked with farm machinery parts. Farmers have been mailed parts catalogs and invited to come in and browse around among the bins. To Your Good Health Each part is marked with the proper catalog number and the price. Purpose of the venture is to stimulate the sale of machinery parts. An added incentive is the coffee pot from which customers may draw a cup while they browse. An early morning visitor told us this story about the local Santa Fe crew. He swears it is true. Out west in Colorado, somewhere alonsr the Santa Fe mainline, there is supposed to have been a shortage of electrical power so the railroad arranged to send out some of its big diesel engines until power problems were corrected. The local crew got wind of the trouble and put out a message on the pole along the tracks. When the soecial, consisting only of eight diesel locomotives went through, the crew aboard snagged the message from the Ottawa station. It read, "you forgot your train." A story out of Topeka the other dav told of the state senator who has agreed to turn back his legislative pay. This reminds us of the fact that Herbert Hoover was the first President of the United States to give all his salary to the U.S. Treasury. Uncle Sam has been trying to get the rest of us to do likewise ever since. HAVING A BALL -Principal characters in "Chapman Report", opening Sunday at Ottawa's Plain Theater, meet at party.

MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I have a 31-year-old daughter who is a good secretary. She has not been very sociable since her husbands death six years ago. In recent months she has shown signs of nervousness. Occasionally she suffers from lapses of memory for a few moments, and as a result has been laid off. Her doctor finds no physical —^ ailments. She is ambitious and ' does not seem to realize her condition. What can be done? — W.B. There's not much for me to go on in this case; but perhaps we don't need much to know what' to do. If her troubles aren't physical, what's left? They must be emo- Dr. Molner tional. With the relative shortage of psychiatrists I am deliberately reluctant to say, "Go to a psychiatrist" at the drop of a hat. In problems of lesser dimensions, more and more physicians are learning to help people over these emotional rough spots, and I'm glad to see increasing interest in this sort of care. But today's case isn't a problem of lesser dimensions. When a capable young woman can't hold her job as a secretary, and good secretaries are hard to find, it's an indication that her emotional disturbance is severe. The problem is severe enough to interfere with her work, her life, and, I am sure, her happiness. Therefore my advice decidely is to consult a good psychiatrist. A condition such as this, unless helped, tends to get worse, not better. How to find a psychiatrist isn't always easy. Ask your regular physician to refer you to one. You may have to wait for an appointment. In many smaller or suburban communities it may be necessary to travel to a larger city to consult one. As to the causes of such a condition, I cannot even attempt to answer. They're too complicated. By jph This And That When they are alone a local gent addresses his wife as Justice. She's had five miscarriages. The cost of living declined two-tenths of one per cent in the month of December. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. Our forefathers had more dependable private transportation than we enjoy today. On the coldest of mornings their one- horse power vehicles started immediately with only a small priming of oats. The problem of re-entry is almost as great when the traveler's £ destination has been a coffee * break as it is when he has gone to the moon. JPH •A Rev. Donald Urlie has resigned his pastorate in Pittsburg, Kans., to return to graduate study. Urlie bird becomes bookworm. Crime doesn't pay, of course. And neither, mourns a local merchant, do a lot of his customers. Beck from a trip east a friend reports having seen this sign posted on the window of a small barbershop on a side street in New York: Adults only. No heir cuts." The church gradually is modernizing itself to keep pace with the times, but it is yet to clarify one question that in recent years has become important in many worshippers' minds. Is there television in Heaven? too varied. However, once they're discovered, effective treatment may be devised. Dear Dr. Molner: What makes my eyelids flaky? Is it a sign of vitamin shortage? Could it cause a person to have difficulty in recognizing distant cars while driving at night?—W.W. This sounds like a chronic conjunctivitis, or infection of the eye. Consult your eye doctor. Yes, vitamin shortage can cause similar symptoms, but so can allergy — and, as I said, chronic infection is still more likely and should be checked first. Dear Dr. Molner: There has been much publicity about deformed babies as a result of their mothers taking thalidomide early in pregnancy. Many years ago, while traveling in Egypt, I saw several cases of children with the same sort of affliction, hands growing out of their shoulders, etc. I am curious as to what might have caused these malformations, years before the drug was known.—L.W.C. There are hundreds of such babies in the United States, and in other countries, for this is not a new type of malformation. The thalidomide situation simply marks a new cause. We have not, in the past, known precisely what caused these cases, other than that something disturbed the baby's development at the time at which the arms (or legs, or sometimes other parts of the body) were forming. Dear Dr. Molner: I have a varicose ulcer near the ankle and it doesn't seem to heal. Please tell me what to do.—M.P. There is no hope of being able to heal that type of ulcer without medical attention, and then it isn't easy unless proper steps are taken to correct the varicose veins — the basic cause of the trouble. Shingles can be a painful disease! To receive a copy of my pamphlet, "The Facts About Shingles," write Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 10 cents in coin to cover handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Harold Staadt of near Ottawa was hired by the Franklin County Commissioners as noxious weed supervisor. Donald Harrison, 6, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Harrison, 1229 S. Cedar, was ill with chickenpox. Don Waymire, 9, son of Mr. and Mrs. 0. W. Waymire, 702 E. 5th, was ill with scarlet fever. 50 YEARS AGO Bert Wilson, an employe of the Ottawa Bakery, was painfully burned when gas thai had accumulated in the oven exploded and flashed out the oven door. He was burned on the face, arms and hands. F. H. Bullock, Dr. A. L. Bell and D. F. Seevers went to Wichita to attend sessions of the grand lodge of Masons of Kansas. Miss Clara Kaiser returned to her position as a stenographer in the First National Bank after helping out with the work in the office of Probate Judge R. H. Harrison for a few weeks. Judge Harrison had been ill for some time. Prayer For Today If any one says, "I love God," and hales his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. (I John 4:20. RSV.) PRAYER: Our Father, we pray that Thou wilt give us strength to do that which we say with our lips. Make us living reminders of the Christian faith in all its breadth and depth, its fullness and power. For Jesus' sake. Amen. "The Chapman Report," identified as the personal story behind a sex survey, will be shown Sunday through Wednesday, Feb. 17-20, at Ottawa's Plaza Theater. The film is based on the novel by the same name, dealing with a survey conducted in a well-to- do neighborhood by a psychologist and members of his staff. Heading the cast are Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Shelley Winters, Jane Fonda, Claire Bloom, Glynis Johns, Ray Danton and Ty Hard in. A double feature, including "Tales of Terror," with two fellows who can be quite terrifying, Vincent Price and Peter Loire, will open Thursday, Feb. 21, at the Plaza. On the other side is "Stagecoach to Dancer's Rock," starring Warren Stevens and Martin Landau. The Plaza's present attractions, "No Man Is an Island" and "Gidget Goes Hawaiian," end tonight.

Cyclone Doin's Valentine's Day Sweetens Week By MARGARET WILLIAMS and ANNE MACIIIN Cupid's arrows have sweetened every high school activity this veek. Beginning the round of Valen- ne parties was the Future lomemakers of America. Tuesday, Eloise Montgomery's cookbook sale team treated Cheryl [tewald's winners to a bowling- tizza party. After bowling one ine at the organization's expense, lie members returned to the school for pizza and pop. The Ottawa Junior High Kayet- es took their regular meeting ;ime to celebrate Valentine's Day. After playing several Valentine games, the members enjoyed re- 'reshments consisting of Valentine cupcakes and pop. In charge of the'party was Kathy Hill, Margaret Good, Marilyn Rule, Roberta Christian, Eulene Milton, President Maria Jo Babcock and sponsor, Miss Harriet Seymour. After their little sisters celebrated Valentine's Day, the senior high Kayettes had their traditional heart sister party. All week Kayettes have been sending anonymous gifts to the heart sister whose name they had drawn at the last meeting. Included in each present was some obscure hint to the giver's identity. Thursday's party brought the climax. After the revelation of who was whose valentine, the girls enjoyed ice cream bars. Last night the junior high Girls' Athletic Association went all out for a date Valentine party. The officers, President Barbara Ryblot, vice president Barbara Harrell, secretary Francie Payne and treasurer Mary Story, acted as chairmen for the event under the watchful eye of Miss Helen Rensch, sponsor. The Valentine colors of red and white were carried out in the decorations. Fifth party on the agenda was enjoyed by the Trade and Industry students. President of the T and I club, Jane Anderson, started a game of charades. Following the game, the members had refreshments and exchanged gag valentines. One of the most humorous was a 7- foot card given to Jane by Clifford Burgoon. Tonight's performance of "Finian's Rainbow" will bring down the final curtain on the 1963 musical. The cast, led by Rick Snider, Kay Barr, Teresa Morrisey, Bill Douglas and Tony Warren, and directed by John Jones, and Jane Feuerborn and P. K. Worley, will be celebrants at the cast - crew "fling" to be flung to nearly mid-night after the close of the show. Irish luck and hours of hard work combined to produce an OHS spectacular. The OHS drill team will march at the Ottawa • Bethany basketball game next Tuesday night, Feb. 19, at Ottawa University. This will be the precision marching squad's final performance in 1963. b keeping with the other holi- djays in February besides Valentines, Douglas Gleason, Ottawa attorney, spoke to the American history students. His speech concerned the lives of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, two ordinary human beings who had many failings but who hurdled over their misgivings with determination. Last night the Cyclone ballplayers boarded their bus, and the team supporters climbed on their bus sponsored by the Girls' Athletic Association. All groups attending the game cheered with the hope that the Turner Bears would send the Cyclones a Victory Valentine. With a somewhat similar wish, but in this somewhat poetic way: Some jello is red Some walls are grey; We hope that you had A Happy Valentine's Day.
