OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, Feb. 20, 1963 Editorials Year-Round School A week ago a legislator caused smiles .and sly side comments in Topeka when he - introduced a bill setting 48 weeks as the : - minimum school year in Kansas. " His. idea was the longer school year, !. 11 months, would eliminate the need for expanding school facilities needed on local and state levels to handle the in;creasing number of students. Kansas is not ready for such an idea, . the state school superintendent remarked on hearing of the bill. He may be right. After all Kansas and Kansans are • traditionally minded. Our present school year harks back to the days when the children were needed on the farm to help with the heavy summer load of . work. Too, the summer break gives teachers time to study and relax. It allows maintenance men to overhaul and paint up school buildings. It allows the family to ^ vacation together. All these things are important. We are used to this. We can't change. To Your Good Health But here in Ottawa we may have to change. Twice voters have rejected a high school bond issue. Obviously they don't want to spend the money to build facilities to handle a modern educational program for the numbers we are soon to have knocking on the high school door. Maybe we should go to a 11-month, 4-semester school year. This would cut down on the total number in high school at any one time. Sure, it would louse up the summer vacations, our local recreation schedule, play hob with our football team and weaken the high school basketball program. It might make it harder to get and retain teachers and it would be a little warm studying at the high school when the mercury hits 100 on the outside. But it would remove the need for a new high school which the tight-fisted aren't now in a mind to approve. After all, something is going to have to give, either the taxpayers or tradition.

What is the prognosis for a sufferer with moderately severe heart damage? Can such a person ever return to a normal, ".useful life?—J.M. Rheumatic fever is an inflammatory disease which appears to >be related to a form of streptococcus infection — the beta hemo. lytic strep, technically. The characteristic pattern is for a severe sore throat to develop first, with high fever, followed in about seven to 10 days by the joints becoming sore and swollen. There is very likely to be mild fever, headache, weakness. (There can be substantial variations in pat? tern in some cases.) Not all sore throats are due to strep; not all strep throats lead to rheumatic fever. But once 'rheumatic fever is identified, careful treatment is required. In addition, thereafter the patient should beware of every illness which might threaten a new strep infection or flare-up of the old one. The most dangerous result of rheumatic fever is inflammation of heart valves from opening and-or closing properly. The result: An inefficient heart. There are, of course, other causes of the same type of damage. Other possible consequences of rheumatic fever include chorea (st. Vitas dance), and ear or kidney infections. In short, it's a nasty disease, but with vigilance and careful treatment, prospects of cure are good. Bed rest is essential until symptoms have disappeared. It is not always easy to convince patients of the importance of this, but getting up too soon can be costly to health. Salicylates (aspirin - type drugs) in large doses are given, or in some instances steroids of the cortisone type. The choice may depend on how well a patient tolerates one or the other. When the patient is allowed to get up, he should maintain extreme caution against colds; keep nutrition and rest at levels which will maintain his resistance against germs. It is now regular (and By jph This And That The past month the diplomatic world has been dominated by De Gaulle's sticking his noes in the air. The word of one Congressman can trusted completely when he states he against nepotism in any form. He's a bachelor who was an only child. . The showing that food prices were down slightly in the month of December had no practical significance for a neighbor. His wife had four extra people in for Christmas dinner.

This shows the dramatic lengths to which the government will go to solve the unemployment problem. January 30th passed this year completely unnoted except for the fact it was a Wednesday. Time was, though, when the date, which happens to be Benj. Franklin's birthday, was widely observed as National Thrift Day.

Women may dote on dinner by candlelight, but men take a dim view of it. most useful) practice to give long-acting penicillin once a month for a period of years to prevent further strep infections. It is not usually the first attack of rheumatic fever that devastates health; it is repeated ones. Thus I can say that a single attack of rheumatic fever does not mean invalidism; recurring attacks can. (An added tip: Dental extractions can lead to them. The precauction is use of a sulfa drug or other antibiotic before, during and after extraction to guard against further inflammation of the heart.) Finally, for patients whose hearts have been seriously involved, limiting their activity, branches of the American Heart Assocation in a good many areas have or can refer you to courses showing how to conserve energy in ordinary daily tasks- housework and the like — to take strain off the heart. Dear Dr. Molner: Please send me a booklet or something on causes and cures for itching and fungus in ears.—P.M. I don't have any such, but I don't know of any simple remedy for fungus infections, so I'd have to say: If you really want results, go to a dermatologist, or skin specialist. Dear Dr. Molner: I am 15 and have the problem of nain-biting. Once in awhile I let a few fingernails grow long and within a week I bite them down to the quick. What causes this and what can I do to stop?—P.O. P.S.: My school project in physical education is nail-biting. Please send me as many sources of information as possible. It's a nervous habit that makes your fingers look terrible. First, make up your mind to stop doing it. After that, keep your fingernails trimmed short — with scissors or clippers, but not with your teeth. But it's up to you. P.S.: I'm not going to do your homework for you. Find your own references, as your teacher assigning that topic to you for a project. Or did intended. And congratulations to your teacher for you choose it yourself? If so, congratulations to you. Never take a chance on diabetes! For better understanding of this disease, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., for a copy of the booklet, "Diabetes — The Sneaky Disease." Please enclose a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 25 cents in coin to cover cost of handling.

Elliott Barnes, while raising the awning in front of his store, suffered a cut on the head when the awning crank slipped and whacked him. Joe Stephenson, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. F.

It was believed the blaze was started by spontaneous combustion in hay stored in an old brick building known as the "old Masonic Hall." Dr. W. R.
