OTTAWA HERALD Pigt Pour From Our Readers Thursday, Feb. 21, 1963 Horrible Stuff The "Book of Knowledge" says alcohol destroys brain cells that can never be repaired. No power on earth can repair this damage once done. No' new brain cells can be made beyond those with which we are born. People who drink alcohol lose the sense of right and wrong. You never know when they are speaking the truth. It deadens all higher thought and kills the desire to become neat, clean and healthful. Users lose their caution and judgment. It is reported that three-fourths of the suicides are committed under the influence of alcohol which also helps spread tuberculosis. The Yale school of alcohol studies tells that drinking is the cause of 20 per cent of all divorces, 25 per cent of insanity, 37 per cent of poverty and 47 per cent of child misery along with 50 per cent of the crime and half of all traffic deaths on holiday weekends. Industry claims it causes the loss of 60 million man hours and a billion dollars a year in wages due to absenteeism. J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI claims that $5 billion annually is spent to combat crime due to liquor drinking. This is a billion more than is received annually by our government for liquor sold. Is the selling of liquor good business management? — Cecil Keiuiey, RFD 1, Lane. Television tog Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-18, CBS Channel 9, ABC Friday VIA VENETO — When the sun shines in February. This And That by jph A Stroll On The Via Veneto ROME — God bless Pan American Airways. Thirty-six hours after I reached Rome, my missing overcoat was delivered to me at my hotel there. Not only was it unharmed, but the pair of gray gloves was still in the lefthand pocket. It was a feat of which Sherlock Holmes could have been proud, but dear old Pan-Am's Lost and Found seemed to do it in stride. Where had the coat been? San Juan? London? Had someone returned it to the Clipper Club in New York minutes after my take- iff, apologetic for his mistake? I'll never know. Pan-Am has made no report. Lake Jimmy Hoffa, overcoats ain't talking. Wherever it had been, the overcoat was welcome. It hasn't been snowing in Rome, as it did two weeks ago for the fist time in some years. Just raining. Not all the time. Once or twice it has stopped almost long enough for the sidewalks to dry. Then a clap of thunder signals the start of another downpour. In such weather a plastic raincoat does shed the water, but it offers little protection against temperatures in the lower 40s. Even so, I took a moist stroll on the Via Veneto my first morning. It is Rome's Champs Elysees, although the comparison is not too exact. It is the street where people promenade or sit at cafe tables for long periods, not doing much of anything except watching people promenade. In the summer it is gay, crowded, vibrant. It swarms with the indolent, tourists, dogs exercising people, beatniks, simple Italins who find it the shortest route to walk to wherever they are going, and persons on the make in all manner of overt or devious ways. The Via Veneto is diverting, relaxing, and in certain ways more than a little depraved. In the winter, on a chilly, rainy February day, however, it is a different street. It is like a divorcee who, at two in the afternoon, still finds herself wandering around the empty house in sloppy slippers, a soiled robe, and with the ash trays still unemptied. It, like she, is careless of appearances. One is aware, as he strides slong with rain Ottawa Herald 1962 FIRST IN KANSAS Published daily except Sunday and Holidays.

It is all dispiriting that one is glad to be back in his hotel where the temperature is a stifling 63 degrees. But such is the world, the morning after I had the reunion with my overcoat, I found that I didn't need it. The sky was blue. The sun was bright. The grass in the strips along the Via Veneto were as green as in May. The covers were back on the rows of cafe tables along the sidewalks. The thermometer must have climbed almost to 60. People were basking in the sun, sipping expres- soes or camparis. Others were making leisurely promenades. It wasn't spring, but everyone for the moment was enjoying the illusion of spring. It was well everyone made the most of that morning. By noon the clouds had regathered, the temperature had fallen, it was raining steadily, and my overcoat felt most comfortable. In Rome in winter the weather is as capricious as a 17- year-old girl. Auld Lang Syne US YEARS AGO William Sullivan, 80, of Peoria, fell on an icy surface near the Peoria Store and suffered a cut on his head. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Carl Peterson, 824 S. Willow. A daughter was bom to Mr. and Mrs. Glen King, 120 S. Maple. 50 YEARS AGO Rain, sleet, snow and ice caused much damage to telephone and electric wires in Ottawa. Western Union messages were delayed and many Ot- tawans were without power. One bad break in city electric lines was at 7th and Cedar. C. E. Warner secured a patent on a device for saving automobile tires. His device was installed on the floor of the home garage and when the car was driven in the device would catch the front axle and a rocker motion would lift the car off the floor, thus taking the car weight off the wheels and relieving the pressure on the air in the tires. A lever would trip the device, letting the rear wheels back onto the floor when the motorist desired to drive out. Prayer For Today Love never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall be done away; whether there, be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall be done away. (I Corinthians 13:8. ASV.) PRAYER: 0 God, we love Thee because Thou hast first loved us; and we adore and praise Thee for the gift of Christ, whose love passeth knowledge. Keep us in Thy love: through Christ, who taught us to pray, "Our Father who art in heaven ... Amen."

JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: Please explain botulism. Wilt my certain processes used in home canning pre- ent tt?-Mrs. P.H. Botulism is an acute and dangerous kind of food xnsoning caused by one particular germ called 2olstridium botulinum. Unlike most germs, this is one which does not require air or oxygen for growth — quite the reverse. Hence if it happens to >e trapped in an enclosed food container it can continue to multiply. Proper canning will destroy he germ, and not since the early 920's has commercially canned bod been involved in a case of totulism. It occasionally still occurs from home canned bod, not often perhaps, but it is such a savage ype of poisoning that one case is too many. Usually there are no signs for 18 to 24 hours after eating food contaminated with Colstridium whilinum. Then the sky seems to cave in on the sufferer — first a feeling of extreme tiredness after which the serious symptoms appear: poor eye reflexes, double vision, diarrhea, vomiting, difficulty in swallowing. Usually more than one person has eaten the contaminated food, so the illness of several at he same time gives a quick and powerful clue. The best treatment is probably a specific serum to combat the poison, plus other incidental medication aimed at the particular symptoms. As I said, it's a dangerous disease, and the mortality rate can be as high as 65 per cent, which is frighteningly high. To Your Goo'd Health" Botulism Is Dangerous Prevention can be sure, however. Cooking food for 30 minutes at 176 degrees will kill the toxin and germ. . ; • Dear Dr. Molner: ,How harmful can paregoric be to a person who takes about two ounces • day?-K.T. Paregoric is an old but still useful preparation derived from opium. Why two ounces a day? This might be justified in certain bowel disorders, but paregoric is still i narcotic and can cause drug addiction. Dear Dr. Molner: Is cholesterol caused by the fat in food; does it have some thing to do with burning up energy by an active person?—Y.W. Animal fats are the richest source of cholesterol, but the body manufactures cholesterol from other foods, too, if necessary. And cholesterol, you un» derstand, is a necessity in the body. It becomes a problem only when, for whatever reason, it i* deposited excessively in the walls of the arteries* Regular exercise, it has been shown in tests, reduces the amount of cholesterol circulating in the blood. Note to K.M.R.: Tests in advance determine whether the various types of hearing loss can or can't be corrected surgically. There is little if anything to be done once the nerve has lost its sensitivity, but many other causes can be corrected. Thus you can have at least a reasonably good forecast as to whether surgery is likely to succeed. Headaches! You can beat them. Write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., for a copy of the booklet, "How To Tame Headaches." Please en* close a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover cost of handling. 'My Three Sons' To Get New Dad By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Danny Thomas has had a couple of television wives, "Lassie" has had two mistresses. Now it looks as though "My Three Sons" may soon get a new father. The ABC comedy series has been renewed for another season starting next fall—but without Fred MacMurray, the busy film That Reaper Had A Ride To Wichita V. B. Johnson, 1203 N. Cherry, was quite interested in an item in The Herald's 25-Year- Ago column of Monday, Feb. 18. The item stated that the first Baldwin Rotary Reaper to be assembled at the Warner Steel Pro- dues plant here was driven to Wichita under its own power. "It just ain't true," Johnson said, adding, "I was there." He explained that the reaper began its journey to Wichita and got as far as Rattlesnake Hill, near where the West 7th Street Road (Highway K-68) crosses 110-Mile Creek, west of Pomona There it went over an embankment. It was brought back to Ottawa and loaded on two trucks and taken to Wichita where it was reassembled. Johnson was one of the truck drivers for the trip. "I remember," he continued, "that we got to Wichita in the night and went towork setting up he reaper. We had to borrow a bol from another farm implement to get the reaper set up and ready for operation."

LfflVKENC ALEC GUINNESS JACK HAWKINS ANTHONY QUINN PETER OTOOLE-iAWRENcp • SUPER PANAVISION 70* star who has been playing the widower father of three boys. This case of the missing star will differ somewhat from the Danny Thomas or Lassie situation. MacMurray is the big name of the show, so substitution may not be the ideal solution—at least from the viewers' side. One alternative is that which is sometimes used in the daytime serials when a member of the cast departs. The writer sends the character on a long journey. And when he returns weeks, sometimes months, later, he has changed. MacMurray's character, Steve Douglas, is an ideal candidate for the long journey treatment. He's an engineer, so an assignment of long duration—perhaps building a dam in one of the remote emerging nations—would be logical. The series is comedy, so that favorite device of soap operas to dispatch an irreplaceable character is obviously out. They positively cannot kill him off. MacMurray's association with the show has presented production problems because he contracted to work only for a few months each year in view of his busy motion picture schedule. The sequences in which he appears in each episode are shot during his TV working periods and then fitted into the programs as required by the various plots. Tonight's TV Highlights A special this evening will touch on "The World of Maurice Chevalier." It'll be on Channel 4 at 7:30. Alexander Scourby will n a r- rate the show in which stills and films of the actor's early years will be shown, and there'll be film clips from some of his great Hollywood triumphs. "Mitch" won't sing tonight. At 6:30 on Channel 4, Don Ameche's "International Show- time" will present circus and ict skating acts from Europe. At 7:30 on Channel 9, Fred Flintstone decides to hold a dress rehearsal in anticipation of the blessed event after the doctor informs Fred and Wilma that the baby could arrive just any time. Late movies include an oldie, "You Can't Cheat An Honest Man." This is a 1939 W. C. Fields film, and Edgar Bergen is also in the cast.
