OTTAWA HERALD Pig* Four Monday, Feb. 18, 1963 Editorials Two Street Questions In case you haven't noticed it, there is a city resolution running in the legal columns of The Herald pertaining to the widening of Massasoit street from Hickory to Cedar. Lincoln School is located on the north side of Massasoit, Trinity Methodist Church on the south. In this area Massasoit is narrow. "When cars are parked on both sides, there is scarcely room for a fire truck to go down the street. Members of the church congregation are naturallv concerned about safety problems resulting from this narrow street. The church also is concerned with the lack of parking space for members of its congregation. To remedv this situation, the church has initiated a petition calling for the city to widen the street 20 feet on each side. This would necessitate removal of both curbs, a number of trees and paving about 40 feet the length of the block. Total cost would be around $9,500. Were this done, it would relieve traf- To Your Good Health fie congestion. It would also provide parking space for more than 40 cars. Cost of the project would be borne by property owners on each side of Massasoit, along with those a half-block either side of Massasoit and on the east side of Hickory and the west side of Cedar. This means that residents of School District 30, which owns Lincoln School, would pay for half the project. The school board wisely has taken a neutral stand on the widening proposal. No one can question the wisdom of widening the street a few feet to relieve traffic congestion. Either this must be done or parking must be restricted on one side of Massasoit. However, the wisdom of widening this single block 40 feet is debatable. Two questions should be answered. Will widening and establishing angle parking on both sides create new traffic problems? Is a dangerous precedent being established when the public is paying for parking space, principal beneficiary of which will be the congregation of one church?

ABC Monday Atomic Cocktail For Goiter Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: Do you recommend the atomic cocktail for goiter? Do all goiters respond to it? Please explain different treatments.—P.R. Yes, I recommended the atomic cocktail for suitable cases. A goiter is a thyroid gland which has grown larger than normal. The causes and results are not all the same, though. The best - known cause is lack of iodine. Some areas, including the Great Lakes region, were known as "goiter belts." The reason: There was almost no iodine •in the soil, hence none in foodstuffs grown in these areas. The thyroid gland produces a hormone called thyroxin. It has to have iodine (even though in only small traces) to do so. With iodine lacking, the thyroid gland, following nature's desperate urge to produce even under handicap, enlarges. The result: Goiter. Use of iodized salt now has put an end to the majority of simple goiters from that cause. However, there are also toxic goiters, which become overactive from some other cause. (Cysts and tumors are two causes of such enlargement.) The, atomic cocktail is used in some of these. The "cocktail" essentially is a small amount of • iodine which has been made radioactive and them dissolved in a glass of water. Since iodine automatically is conducted to the thyroid (where that element is needed), so is the radioactive iodine. There its radioactive proper, ties quiet the over-activity. It is, indeed, used instead of surgery, the same end result being achieved by removing part of the gland, and leaving only the amount of gland tissue needed to provide enough thyroxin. Thus for some goiters, administering iodine alone may be a successful treatment. In others the atomic cocktail or surgery may be necessary. The atomic cocktail is usually confined to patients over the age of 40. By jph This And That A survey shows that, were their expenses paid for them, most Americans prefer Hawaii over California as the best place for a vacation and deem Florida no better than a fifth choice. Most Americans never have been to Hawaii, however, so they really don't know what they arc talking about. . Calvin Coolidge should be better remembered than he is. He balanced the budget every year he was in the White House. The art has been lost in all of his successors. . The government's climatologist, although he doesn't yet have the data to prove it, feels it in his bones that this country's weather is becoming colder. We feel it JPH in our gas bills even more than in our bones. Don't be a knocker, everyone advises. Inconsistently, though, they couldn't be higher in their praise of opportunity. A local optimist called on his banker last week to try to borrow what he estimates the proposed cut will save him on his taxes. The banker proved to be a pessimist. Could it have beou that Harry Truman's recent need for a hernia operation disclosed the physcial hazard of giving them all-out hell? The baseball rule-makers have decided to widen the strike zone by a foot. No better critique is possible on the current level of pitching. Whisky, a scientist reports, does not warm a person on a cold day but actually lowers the temperature. After two or three shots, though, he iuually doeso't care. It does not by any means eliminate all need for surgery. A goiter may be of such size that it. interferes with breathing and swallowing. Or there may be special characteristics which make tt mandatory to act immediately. Then surgery is the answer. That's why I recommend the atomic cocktail only in suitable cases. Dear Dr. Molner: Please discuss lack of pigmentation in the skin. My skin is getting worse and seemingly there is nothing that can be done. Is it from lack of vitamins? Ls it hereditary?— MRS. D.M. This is called vitiligo — loss of pigment in patches of skin. Heredity probably is a factor. Certain skin infectons can be involved. Damage to the skin (as from severe sunburn) sometimes can leave areas where pigment will not accumulate sufficiently. And other times no specific cause can be detected. I hope it will make you feel better to know that: 1 — There is nothing harmful to health in this condition. 2 — Sometimes it clears up by itself. In the interim, cosmetics are probably the most satisfactory answer. Drugs have been tried but without dependable success. Dear Dr. Molner: I am 28. Six months ago I had a minor inflammation of the prostate but did not go back for another examination. There is a thick discharge. Is this serious?—M.A. Yes, Infection anywhere is serious. You are younger than average to have prostate trouble, but as I've written before, it can occur regardless of age. You had better get back to your doctor. Dear Dr. Molner: I get large canker sores on my gums after eating sweets and drinking juices. Taking Vitamin C docs not help. Can you suggest anything?—G.J. With such a clue, I'd start watching carefully to see just what kinds of sweets or juices are followed by the sores. In short, it may well be a food sensitivity. How to get rid of leg cramps and foot pains? The answer may be simple. Write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., for a copy of the leaflet, "How To Stop Leg Cramps and Foot Poins," enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover cost of printing and handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO The first Baldwin rotary reaper to be assembled at the Warner Steel Products plant in Ottawa was driven to Wichita under its own power for showing at the tractor and implement show. E. W. Cannon, 126 S. Elm, lineman for the Santa Fe railroad, was transferred to Topeka. Venie Fisher, deputy county treasurer, resigned to take a position as pharmacist at the Kramer Drug Store. 50 YEARS AGO Little John Howard Truesdail. son of Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Truesdail of Quenemo ,was a very good typesetter, though only 6 years old. He learned the type case and learned to set type in his father's newspaper office, the Quenemo News. The Santa Fe section house, a half-mile west of Pomona, was destroyed by fire. John G. Kaiser purchased the interest of C. L. Becker in the Becker & Dorsey Drug Store. Kaiser had completed the course in pharmacy at University of Kansas, Lawrence, 10 years before. Prayer For Today God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.

PRINCESS GRACE PRINCE RAINIER Her Figure Not What It Was DORSET, Vt. (AP)-Mrs. Rose L.. Kent foresees one difficulty in her bid for the Mrs. America rown at Miami Beach April 2226. "At 90," she asks, "how will I look in a bathing suit?" However, she confidently listed her other qualifications Friday. She has cooked her own bread 'or 83 years, was happily married for 50 years, raised two sons who today are 62 and 59, concocted a cookie recipe used for more than 80 years, run for the state legislature and has written many articles and poems for newspapers and periodicals. Contest director Bert Nevins accepted Mrs. Kent's application, saying: "This is not a beauty affair. Its purpose is to honor American homemakers. Mrs. Kent qualifies." Grace Still Lovely As A Movie Queen By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Monaco, some of us have always thought, is a place where younger sons of earls, usually named E. Phillips Oppenheim, casually lose everything at the gaming tables and then stroll gallantly into the Casino gardens and are never seen again. But after Sunday night's CBS special, "A Look at Monaco," I know this is all a foolish girl's romantic dream. Monaco is really our town, governed by the folks next door. Her Serene Highness, Princess Grace, seems to have picked up some sort of a combination British-Riviera accent during the past few years, but she is still more beautiful than any reigning Hollywood queen. She lives—apparently on a perpetual honeymoon—in a colorful little country backed by mountains, covered with white Busy Boy After Ad EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP)It pays to advertise, a 6-foot-7 sophomore at Michigan State University has found. You get girls. . .girls girls. The tall man, Dave Steiner of Grand Blanc, put a two-line advertisement in the State News, college daily, telling his plight. "Would like to make acquaintance of young lady 6 feet or over. Call Chet," he advertised. The phone has been ringing ever since, Chet said, explaining that he used the name because two of his roommates- are also named David. "I guess I've averaged 10 calls a day," he said. He had a date Friday with a 6-2 coed. houses with red .roofs and with a constant view of a blue-green sea. The famous Monte Carlo Casino seems scarcely to exist for the princess and the prince. They're barred from the gambling joint by tradition 'and mostly ignore it. According to the report, the princess from Philadelphia and her prince live in an old castle, raising children, visiting orphanages and admiring paintings, while husband and children visit their private zoo or skindive for rare flora and fauna for their Oceanographic Institute. So who needs roulette and chemin de fer? There may be a change in plans, but it looks now as if ABC's "Naked City" series is doomed at the end of this season. The police show has had thoughtful, unusual scripts and themes and has gotten away from the usual armed-man- behind-the-door cliches in favor of introspective approach to crime problems.

By JOHN HEHN BERLIN (AP)-West Berliners gave their Socialist mayor, Willy Brandt, a smashing vote of confidence Sunday in their first municipal election since the Communists built their Berlin wall. Brandt's anti-Communist Socialists won 89 of the 140 seats in the city's new Parliament. They had 77 deputies in the 133-seat house elected four years ago. West Berlin's small Communist party, never represented in Parliament, lost a third of its popular vote. This was blamed largely on the wall. The Communist vote declined from 31,570 in 1959 to 20,887 ballots. In percentage of the total votes, they decreased from 1.9 to 1.3 per cent. The Christian Democrats, led by Franz Amrehn, deputy mayor in Brandt's coalition government of Socialists and Christian Demo- rats, won 41 seats, a drop of 14. They lost over 160,000 votes. The Free Democrats, not represented in the old house, doubled their strength and entered the new city Parliamnt with 10 deputies. Political observers agreed that the city election outcome gave no new key to the West German political situation. Berlin, like most big German cities, is a traditional Socialist stronghold.
