OTTAWA HERALC To Your Good HeaWi Pift Poor Editorials Monday, February 25, 1963 A Game Half Over Weekly, when the Kansas Legislature public funds, elimination of personal pro- is in session, the State Chamber of Commerce sends out what it calls its "box score." This tabulation shows the number of hits and runs made by those who represent us in the state capital. So far, it appears, only one big run has crossed the plate to be signed by the governor, as far as major legislation is concerned. That, ironically, is the measure which provides for an increase in pay for the hardworking members. perty taxes, implementation of the highway survey, reapportionment, the earnings tax, research and economic development, budget requests for our state colleges and universities, just to name a few. The Legislature traditionally shoots for adjournment around April 1 so that farm members can get home for spring plowing. With four innings gone, very little shows on the Scoreboard.

Work has been completed on only seven. Left undone are such issues as what to do with Wichita University, a number of school unification matters, state aid to local schools, prison reforms, enlarging issues. In the resulting confusion, many of the projects which Kansas needs are left undone. It's high time for the representatives and senators to come out of the locker rooms and off the benches and get on Many Causes Of Heartburn By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr M.olner: What causes heartburn and hiccups and what is the cure? I have both troubles — heartburn after eating only one slice of bread. And for hiccups I've tried everything including some old-fashioned supersti- tions.—H.C.D. . Heartburn? Many causes. Spicy and irrating What about getting heartburn from only one slice of bread? Is that literally true? If so, it's rather unusual, because bread is bland and nonirritating. Too often a particular item of food is blamed for distress when some other factor is the real cause. However, if the bread really does cause it, you might be hypersensitive to wheat. foods; inflammation of esophagus or gullet; re- Dear Dr. Molner: What causes a wheezing sound gurgitation of stomach contents back up into the gullet (hiccups could cause that to happen); any disorder of the upper intestinal tract, including ulcer of stomach or duodenum; hiatal hernia, or gall stones. Also excessive alcohol, tobacco or coffee; or hyperacidity, which is an excessive secretion of digestive juices. The cure? The first rule of health is to find out the cause before choosing a treatment. Medication, diet, cutting down on something you are getting too much of — all of these are good Dr. Molner in the chest? Does it signify a lung or heart dis- order?-K.H. Not necessarily — It can be asthma, bronchitis or a throat ailment. But some of these may in- tesnify heart or lung trouble, so a thorough checkup is in order. Dear Dr. Molner: We have six healthy children, aged 4 to 16 and they each drink a quart of homogenized milk a day. With the rumors about cholesterol and strontium 90, my wife thinks we should discontinue or at least curtail their milk consumption. What's your verdict?—J.W. cures if applied to the right cause.

Causes most frequently are overeating of eating to fast; irritation of the diaphragm; kidney or liver disease; and habit. My best suggestion is to take this up with your doctor when you see him concerning the heartburn. It is entirely possible that correcting one will correct the other. I have no pet remedy for hiccups. There are as many so-called hiccup cures as there are "cold cures" and very few of them do any more good. Breathing into a paper bag, or holding your breath are probably as effective as any.

Exact diagnosis is worth a lot of guesswork. Concerning cholesterol, it seems more to the point to be cautious about other sources of anima fats. We need some fat in the diet and the but terfat in milk is a good source. Milk also is rich in calcium, which is needed for strong bones and teeth. As to strontium 90 — it's a matter that deserves continuing study, as does all radioactivity, but I can't see any reason for giving up milk. Attention all women! For the pamphlet, "The Pre-Menstural Blues," write to Dr. Molner, Box 18, Dundee, HI., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover handling. This pamphlet may help you! ROME — The Piazza Navona is a cobblestone plaza fully two blocks long. Oh it babies and dogs are aired, children play, old women knit, lovers stroll, and old men doze in the sun. Three massive fountains by Bernini, replete with dolphins, water nymphs, and neptunes, decorate and dominate the expanse. Only four narrow streets break through the four - story structures that ring the Piazza, so it maintains an air of quiet and seclusion. The buildings look old, tired, yet somehow homey. Above are small apartments. On the ground level are assorted small shops plus a sprinkling of ristor- tntes, bars and trattorias, where tometimes both the food and the prices are more appealing. JPH I always pay at least one visit to the Piazza Navona when I come to Rome. I never tire of looking at the fountains or eating at Tre Scalini. It is not one of the great restaurants of the city, yet here one always eats well. It is an old establishment which stands three steps up from the street. Hence, Tre Scalini. In the summer one dines more pleasantly from tables set out on the sidewalk. In the winter one is forced into one of the several inside rooms which have been modernized in execrable taste. The kitchen, however, remains sound. Despite its modest appearance, Tre Scalini has a richly varied menu. This day it offered a nice selection of appetizers, including caviar, foie gras, Parma ham, shrimps, and tidbits of baby octopus. There was a choice of seven soups, including strac- ciatela alia Romana, which is a delicious consomme heightened with bits of curdled egg. And not one of the soups came out of a can! Spaghetti, naturally, was included among the pastas offered, and there was tempting cannelloni, but, alas, no lasagna. There were five varieties of fish. There was veal, chicken, brains, liver, and half a dozen different cuts of beef. There were fresh fruits, and a rich selection of desserts. The salads I deliberately skip over. The mixed green salad offered this time of year appears to be an assortment of weeds imported from North Africa, perhaps, and the native goats must find it delightful. I don't. From such a menu one cannot choose intelligently without professional guidance. At Tre Scali- ni a waiter is always at one's elbow to provide it I mused for a moment before calling him into consultation. In Italy there are three basic gastronomic rules to remember: First, it will be cooked in olive oil. Second, squeeze lemon juice on it as an antidote. Third, cover thickly with grated Parmesan cheese to obliterate all that has gone before. I told my mentor I wished to lunch lightly and would start with a pasta. He recommended fettuccini. It is a bountiful serving of broad noodles to which generous quantities of butter and cheese are added and the whole is then stirred into a rich, goo. Tbt waiter's recommeaditioa proved to be superb. It was even better than that served by Alfredo alia. Scrofa, who modestly describes himself as "the King of Fettuccini." I suggested a grilled sole, which the Italians delightfully term a sogliola, to follow. The waiter demurred. The fish today for some reason was not what it should be. He suggested saltimbocco alia Romano — thin slices of veal and ham cooked together — accompanied by green peas. It seemed to be a most sensible suggestion, and so it proved to be. There was a small flask of bianco — ordinary white wine — to accompany the meal, and an espresso to follow. Espresso is that beautifully bitter brew made by forcing steam through nearly pulverized coffee. The repast, including the tip which is made a part of the bill, cost $2.20. When I walked out of Tre Scalini and onto the sunlit Piazza Navona, the Bernini fountains had never appeared more beautiful, despite the cadaverous look two centuries of weather have given the marble. Both the massive one in the center of the plaza and the smaller ones at the far ends. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Word from Hollywood indicated that Miss Shirley Temple, age 9, would make a personal appearance tour of the United States . Gen. John G. Pershing was critically ill at Tuc son, Ariz. A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. V. B. Johnson, 524 N. Sycamore. 50 YEARS AGO An interesting old document was found on the floor of the office of Judge C. A. Smart at the courthouse, and the judge said he had no idea how the paper got into his offfee. It was a warranty deed, dated June 12, 1809, which transferred one acre of land northeast of Ottawa from Mary and John W. Gibson to Hawkins School District No. 38 for use as a school building site. The deed bore the signature of H. F. Sheldon, register of deeds. It had been entered on the records of the county clerk Jan. 5, 1882, as shown by the signatures of L. Altman, county clerk; A. H. Sellers, deputy; and H. B. F. Keller, register of deeds. Another signature on the deed was that of John A. Davenport, a justice of the peace. Prayer For Today Search me, 0 God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24.)

Forgive yesterday's failures and keep us from tomorrow's anxieties by living this day in the strength of Christ. In His nameiwe pray, Amen.

Blame Russia For The Cold MOSCOW (AP)-Soviet weath ermen offered a possible clue today to the snow and cold that belted Europe this winter. They said the traditional icebox of the Soviet Union — known as the "pole of cold" in northeastern Siberia — shifted westward and southward this year into the European part of the Soviet Un ion. They did not guess why thii happened, but Siberia was the warmest it has been in recenl years while Moldavia and the Ukraine in the south shivered to the worst frosts in 50 years.

"How West Was Won" A Winner By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP)-A hit for months in London and Paris, 'How the West Was Won," has finally made its Western premiere. It's a hit here, too. The most frequent comment at the lavish Hollywood opening was: "What a pleasure to see a real movie again." That can be written with a capital M, for "How the West Was Won" represents a return to the style of film making that Hollywood seemed almost to have forgotten. It fills the immense Cinerama screen with startling scenery, stirring action, attactive characters, and a theme befitting the hugeness of the production. It will be difficult to return to tawdry little dramas with psychotic casts after this. MGM and Cinereama made a wise gamble in entrusting their $14 million to directors Henry Hathaway, George Marshall and John Ford. All three were schooled in the silents, which held action and pictorial quality in high regard. All three know the value of pace and well-etched character. The episodic epic is type cast, and wisely so. Characters dart in Science Shrinks Piles . New Way Without Surgery Stops Itch—Relieves Pain N.w V«rk, N. Y.

So they are easily recognizable —James Stewart as a footloose trapper, Henry Fonda ditto, Rich ard Widmark as a tough-as-nails railroad boss, Gregory Peck as a gambling charmer, John Wayne a gruff Gen. Sherman, even Ray mond Massey as you-know-who. A notable departure from type is Walter Brennan, lovable grand pa McCoy, as a murderous bush wacker. He is capital. Debbie Reynolds and George Peppard thread through the film giving a needed unity. Miss Rey nolds gives her first performance of real dimension, and Peppard continues to impress as star material. Special mention should be made of the corps of stunt men who participated in the picture. Their work passes so swiftly that it is seldom recognized. They have performed magnificently. One Bob Morgan, lost his leg am almost his life in a monumenta fight aboard a runaway (rain tha is the climax of the action. The diligent critic should poin out the drawbacks of any produc turn, and "How the West Was Won" has some. James Webb' fine script manages to skirt mos but not all of the Western movi cliches. The spontaneous excite ment of the early portions of the film is not quite recaptured a the trek moves West. The Civi War segment is not fully realized But these are niggling comments about a superlative piece of entertainment. It can do noth ing but good for the entire film industry and for the American image overseas. Watch out for ye another cycle of Western films.
