OTTAWA HERALD Page Ten Editorials Thursday, Feb. 21, 1963 Kansans In Command Let's not stop in our fussing on just what the KSTA man said about the Kansas education system being one of the most backward in the country. Let's argue some of the other points he made. That '"the Kansas farmer is a rugged individualist whose insistence on independence makes him oppose educational progress." That "legislators get up and say 'we'll run our schools the way we want to . . .' " Newer Kansans who've lived in other states are quick to recognise in Kansas one of the leading a,nd last of strongholds of self-dependence and self-government. Manv of us are nroud of the font. But don't think for a minute that our running the show doesn't slow the wheels of what's recognized as progress. There's an example risftt here in Ottawa. The people we elected and employed to guide our school svstem all agreed we need a new senior high school and that it ousrht to be reach' for use by September, 1964. We decided we don't need one or that we don't need to be in a hurry about it. Then there's our new employment This And That by jph service office. The decision on its need wasn't left to us. We didn't run that show, so we have a new office building. Many Ottawans are proud of it, because it adds to the city's physical attractiveness and to its worth as a service and trade center. The same people would feel the same about a new high school. t As for the legislators "getting up and saying . . . ", what else are they doing on school unification and higher education, including the Wichita University matter. Did you ever hear so much bickering over something everybody apparently wants, the inclusion of WU in the state system ? But those legislators aren't listening to the Eurich agency, the Regents. They haven't listened to the people who are supposed to know and who have said we need some school district unification plan either. It's true that Kansans are individualists. It's true this state certainly isn't making the progress in schools and industrial development other areas of the country are. And it's true the two often don't go hand in hand. To Your Good Health Syphilis Can Be Hereditary By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: When I entered the army in 1943 my blood showed a positive Kahn test. I took 500,000 units of penicillin and was O.K. Now it is positive again. Could this be hereditary? I know of no other way it could have happened.— J.A.L. We usually give more than 500,000 units of penicillin for a complete treatment for syphilis, but the fact that your blood test became negative the first time is a good sign. It may be that you need further treatment. It is also possible that you are one of those unfortunate people whose blood test won't change. It happens. But with proper evaluation of your case, and treatment if it is needed, you can at the same time be without any clinical indications of the disease. Enough of the germ is in the blood to make a test positive, but except for that you can be well, and not run a risk of passing the disease on to anyone else. Dr. Molner A Perfectly Lousy Trip ; ROME — I should have stayed at home. Matter of fact,, I should have stayed in bed. As far as getting across the Atlantic was concerned, I was jinxed. There couldn't have been a filthier day for it. A day that began too early in the morning after too few hours of sleep. The clouds hung low and heavy, and a steady rain fell from them. The taxi driver was surly when I indicated the route I wished to follow to Idlewild airport, which is $1.10 cheaper than the one he started to turn on to. I was surly back at him. : It takes no more than 20 rnin- ites to process passengers for even a big jet plane, but there still is a ridiculous rule requiring passengers to check in for international flights an hour before departure time. I found, on reaching the airport, that I.had beaten the deadline by 17 minutes. It took me only four minutes to check in for Flight 118. JPH The preliminaries went smoothly until I reached the cashier. She told me I had 22 pounds of excess luggage and the rate for New York to Rome was about $2.40 a pound. I protested that the preceding airline on which I had traveled with the same bags hadn't found any over-weight at all, and that the one befo'« that had claimed only 10. She shrugged. I paid. For its regular clients Pan-Am in its toadstool terminal at Idlewild maintains a special lounge which it terms a Clipper Club. There pretty hostesses compliment you with coffee at this hour of the morning and with more potent beverages later in the day. The time passed pleasantly as a willowy, blonde hostess and a short brunett hostess with thick legs refilled my cup. Finally Fb'ght 118 was called. I started for the Clipper Club entrance to retrieve my hat, overcoat, and cabin bags. Everything was present and accounted for except a key item. No overcoat. And, Baby, it was cold outside. I reported the fact to the short, brunette hostess. She wouldn't believe it. Things like this simply didn't happen in a Clipper Club. The membership was of the elite. She searched the coat closet for herself. No overcoat. She grabbed the telephone and dialed frantically. She reported the situation to this party and that. She promised immediate results. I stood there cursing under my breath while nothing happened. The scheduled hour of 9:15 approached. She urged I rush to catch the plane and vowed that the overcoat would be located somehow and sent on to me, probably by no later than the following day. I was in my assigned seat with half a minute Laff-A-Day Xlnc Fatare* Syndtotc, Inc., IS8S, World right* reserved. "Lately I've been losing arguments to my husband." to spare. The purser remarked, as he escorted me in, that it was rather cold weather for me to be going to Europe without an overcoat. I told him I was the hardy type, but there was no mirth in it. The appointed hour arrived and nothing happened. Nothing happened for another half-hour. Then the jet made its lumbering way to the head of the runway. We wer eairborne just 57 minutes late. On the way up through the overcast there was further discouragement from the Captain. Through the loud-speakers he announced that because of most unusual head winds of 80 miles an hour, the Paris leg would require almost eight hours. Usually, this time of year, there are tail winds which may blow upward of 150 miles an hour and cut the time by nearly two hours. It was a long trip and a tedious one. American cabin personnel are inclined to be perfunctory with their charges. They entertain themselves the minute their obligatory chores are performed. The cabin staffs of SAS, Lufthansa, Swissair, and even Air India do much better. Half an hour nut of Paris the announcement came back that Orly was closed in and we would put down at Le Bourget. So we did. The temnera- ture was 19. I was keenlv aware of it as I dashed from plane to terminal and, minutes later, back again. All things finally must come to an end, and so did Flight 118. We made Rome, and if we hadn't, these lines would not have been written. Customs was cursory. Who wants to open bags at an unholy hour of the morning? There is nothing an American would want to smuggle into Italy. The weather here was a balmy 48. The drive in from the airport was pleasant. The driver wanted to charge me only twice the official price. I finally got to bed at four o'clock in the morning. Sleep, it's wonderful. AuJd Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO University of Kansas Jayhawks were at the top of the heap in the Big Six basketball standings with a record of six wins and one loss. John Kaiser went to Topeka for a meeting of the Kansas Book Dealers Association. Miss Nellie league, 5th grade teacher at Hawthorne grade school, was ill for several days with tonsilitis and unable to teach. 50 FEARS AGO L. C. Wasson, a former mayor of Ottawa, died at Hutchinson. He had been prominent in the early life of Ottawa. While mayor he had been instrumental in the construction of a stone bridge over a ravine at Main and Keokuk Streets. The stone bridge was later covered by the pavement of Main Street. Almost 2,b'00 students were enrolled in University of Kansas at Lawrence. A big meeting of Odd Fellows was held at Princeton, with the Pomona drill team participating in the initiation of 12 candidates. Several Ottawa Odd Fellows attended. Prayer For Today May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who has shown us such love, and in his grace has given us such unfailing encouragement and such bright hopes, still encourage and fortify you in every good deed and word! (U Thessalonians 2:16-17 NEB.) PRAYER: Our Father, we thank Thee for Thy great love to us and for all it is doing for us today. Sustain us in our faith that Thy love never Tails, and so grant us peace; through Christ our Lord. Amen. Incidentally several newer and more sensitive tests have been developed in the last 20 years, and can do a more accurate job, in difficult cases, than can the Kahn or Wasserman tests. However, those two tests are still very useful for most purposes. As to whether your case is hereditary, I'd have no way of knowing, but what's the difference? Whether the disease is contracted as a result of heredity, or through the more usual way, it still should be treated until it no longer is a peril either to the patient or his family. Dear Doctor: Is it possible to get syphilis from a man who has had relations with a woman yet he does not have the disease himself?—MRS B. J. I never have known the disease to be passed on in that fashion. While I can imagine circum- stances under which 1, suppose it could happen, they would'be so extraordinary as to be scarcely believable. The syphilis germ, you see, doesn't survive very long except in the human body. But in the human body — oh, how persistent it is. For a person to carry the germ for more than a very short Jime, give it to someone else,, yet not contract tne disease himself would be quite unusual. Dear Dr. Molner: Please discuss pinworms, where they breed, how they spread, treatment, and whether a doctor's prescription is necessary? - MRS. R.S.C. So many people have asked the same thing that I have written a booklet which covers all of those questions. Yes, a prescription is necessary for the modern and highly effective treatment now in use. (Send 20 cents in coin and a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope for a copy of "The Commonest Pest — Pinworm." Address your request to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI.) Dear Dr. Molner: Can one ever get cured of trench mouth?—M.M. Certainly, but the quicker you get to your dentist, the sooner you'll be cured. Dear Dr. Molner: Does diabetes affect one's nerves? Does it interfere with one's ability sexual- ly?—L.M.M. Yes, sometimes. There can be "diabetic neuritis" with pains and reduced sensations as well. Hence diabetics should be careful of hot water bags, electric pads and the like. They sometimes can burn themselves because they don't sense how hot the things really are. A nervous involvement can occur, causing reduced sexual potential. It can also involve the intestinal tract, causing either diarrhea or severe constipation. Are you bothered with ringing in the ears? If so, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., for the booklet, "Ear Noises — Their Causes and Cures," enclosing with your request 10 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope.

A Unique Special By Victor Borge J . > , • . - u ". • O By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Teievision-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Some Victor Borge fans wish he'd stop fooling around with long-hair music'and stick to the comedy. Some Borge fans deplore sadly that such a talented musician, such a fine pianist, wastes all that time on funny stuff. Borge, a lively man who has drawn a fine bead on the mass American audience, doesn't mind Plan Partner Night At Wellsville WELLSVILLE - Robert Coppersmith, Kansas State University extension department, will speak at the Wellsville Chamber of Commerce Farmers Night meeting. It will be held Thursday, March 14 at 7 p.m. in the school multipurpose room. The committee arranging for the speaker includes M. L. Averill, chairman, Lowell Collins and Gilbert McConnell. Chamber President Dick Moherman named the following committees to make other arrangements. Food — Norman Shannon, chairman; Charles Steen, Marvin Sturm, Dennis Shields, John Neis,.

(AP)-Five men and a woman have been nominated for directorships in the University of Kansas Alumni Association. They are Mrs. Julia Markham Piper, Parsons; Everett L. Bradley, Wichita; Claude E. Harrison, Colby; Donald E. Lang, Scott City; Joseph W. McCroskrie, Lawrence; and Dr. Howard E. Snyder, Winfield. Three will be elected by mail ballots of association members before the June commencement. the wails i bit. For one thing, ht realizes that both groups like to watch him. And he also realizes that the largest group of all—between the extremes—thinks his curious, special blend of good music and bright comedy is'just great. "You can't satisfy everybody," he shrugs. "And I have to do what I feel happy and comfortable doing." Borge, who has been through the television mill and had made a number of specials over the years, will be seen in one of his infrequent specials on Sunday night on ABC. Borge's Sunday special is certainly unique. It was taped in Philharmonic Hall of Lincoln Center. It enlists the talents of clown Marcel Marceau and classical pianist Leonid Hambro. Borge's personal recipe for balancing himself delicately and successfully between two far-apart stools without danger of crashing to disaster is logic. "Everything must be logical," Borge explained. "It is not difficult to get laughs. There are many ways to do this, starting with making funny faces. But you can't keep that up forever. "You have to be comfortable, too, and I'm not comfortable unless there's logic in it. Some people say that the business Where I fall off the. piano bench at the end of a run is ridiculous. I say it's not ridiculous—I actually did lose my balance and fall off the bench when I was practicing." Ottawa Herald 1962 FIRST IN KANSAS 1W4M PublMMd a*fljr raecpt natty u»« Holidays.
