OTTAWA HERALD Page Pour Editorials Tuesday, February 26, 1963 Those Hiking Health Nuts The wife of the average U.S. Marine is in better shape than he is. She keeps this way by doing housework and without taking 50-mile hikes. So says a Madison Avenue publicity blurb put out by the maker of kitchen equipment. Insignificant in itself, this bit of nonsense shows how far the President's walking kick has invaded our mechanized way of life. It appears our President has surrounded himself with a bunch of health nuts who spend their leisure hours twisting until early morning, tossing each other into palatial pools while clad in evening clothes, riding to the hounds, water skiing and climbing mountains. The word from higher circles is the President isn't happy with the flabby American. He's out to change the shape of the people. Healthful 50-mile hikes are the current vogue. While this rebuilding program may make the headlines, it will be harder to sell to the average American than medi- care. We are too used to high octane to trade it for blisters. And as to the other forms of relaxation promoted by the President, he's off his rocker if he thinks we will adopt them. Relaxation to us is grasping a good book while in a near - horizontal position, watching the Chicago Bears bruise their opponents on TV or the strenuous shuffling of pasteboards. These forms of exercise we intend to pursue with great vigah. ST. PETER'S — Looking out from the doors over a portion of the colonnaded courtyard. This And That by jph > St. Peters "Big, Ain't It?" JPH ROME — When I was a small boy my mother had a hired girl, as they were then called. She was German, stolid, stupid, but loyal and hardworking. One summer we all went to Colorado. The first day my mother arranged to give us our initial view of a real mountain—Pike's Peak, no other. My mother asked Hilda what she thought of it. "Big, ain't it?" The same could be said by an unimaginative person of St. Peter's. It is so vast it is overpowering. The keyhold - shaped entrance way and colonnaded courtyard easily could hold half a million people, and no doubt from time to time they have. Standing at the doors of the church and looking across the great expanse, persons at the far end look like disorganized groups of ants. Within St. Pete's the same sense of over-whelming space prevails. In the great, dim interior even the most egoistic man feels cut down to size. Whatever his faith, in this huge house of God it is brought home to him what an insignificant mortal he is. No wonder Mussolini never stepped inside it. St. Peter's, though big, is not beautiful. There are many beautiful things in it — mosaics, statuary, stained glass pictures, the great baroque altar. But they do not come together as an artistic whole. Over the years one thing after another has been added, to please the tastes of successive Popes, with little regard to what surrounded it. So its many treasurers must be savored separately. Otherwise one merges into the bright Italian light with little to say other than, "Big, ain't it?" In the summer St. Peter's teems with-people. To Your Good Health Groups of tourists, nuns, school children, seminarians, pilgrims, priests. On a February afternoon there are so few about that it seems almost deserted. It is quite, subdued, restful, and just a little eerie. Standing alone in one of the almost dark side chapels, studying the portrait in marble of some forgotten Pope, one almost senses the presence of ghosts. The temptation to add holy ghosts is irresistible. Then the silence is broken by distant music which echoes its way around. It is organ music of a disorganized sort. As one listens, he realizes it is the organist leisurely testing the pitch of various pipes and, between, playing random chores. It is perfect for the time and place. The music stops and in its place comes a low, mechanical hum which seems decidedly out of place. When I had leisurely worked my way down to the rich, central altar which stands directly under the dome, I discovered its source. It came from two electric buffing machines which were polishing the marble floor. The church is adapting itself to the times. It was necessary to walk around the outer corridor to make my way out. The central aisle was blocked for its full length. It was filled by the facing banks of chairs on which the Cardinals, Archbishops, and Bishops had sat during the many weeks of the first session of the Ecumenical Congress. The seating arrangement is like that of the British House of Commons but elongated considerably. The Princes of the church adjourned shortly before Christmas and will not reassemble until early September. Meanwhile their tiers of Chan's will remain in place. Whether this is as a visual reminder to all visitors of St. Peter's of the importance of the Congress, or an economy measure, I do not pretend to know. Torus Growth In Mouth By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: What would a growth or lump back in the roof of the mouth mean? It is like bone or a hardened gum. I don't know if il is growing but I just discovered it. I am making myself sick thinking it is cancer.—MRS. H.H. Dear Doctor: Is it natural to have something in the roof of the mouth, like a bone? It isn't sore but it seems to be getting larger.—MRS. M. The same question has come from two readers in far-distant cities. If I were making myself sick, thinking it is cancer, I know what I'd do: I'd go to the doctor at cnce. And in this instance, I could pretty well predict what the answer would be. Dr. Molner While obviously I can't identify a lump just from reading about it, I can point out that a torus occasionally forms in the roof of the mouth and toward the back — in the hard palate, to be precise. That is the point at which two bones forming the .palate have joined, and sometimes an overgrowth of bone occurs there. It isn't cancerous. It's just a quirk of growth. A torus, if the patient has dentures, can be a nuisance by interfering with proper fit of the upper plate. If the lump isn't too large, the plate can be fitted around it. Ordinarily nothing is done about a torus, although in some cases it can be removed surgically if size seems to warrant it. Dear Dr. Molner; I have been taking a daily capsule of iron and liver and recently noticed that my stool is very dark, almost black. Is this caused by the iron?—MRS. J.E. It is quite usual for iron to cause such a color change, but I must add this word of warning: Be sure it is the iron, not some subtle loss of blood in the intestine which is causing it. For bleeding can cause thai dark color, loo. Note to S. D.: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a progressive degenerative disease of the spinal cord. Acne is one of the most terrible problems of growing up. If you are afflicted with this aggravation, or if you have children who are, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., for a copy of his helpful and comforting booklet, Acne—The Teenage Problem. Please enclose a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope, and 20 cents in coin to cover handling. Prayer For Today In Christ our release is secured and our sins are forgiven through the shedding of his blood. Therein lies the richness of God's free grace lavished upon us, imparting full wisdom and insight. (Ephesians 1:7. NEB.) PRAYER: 0 God, who in Jesus Christ dost redeem men from the slavery of sin, enable us by faith to receive Thy grace that we may rejoice in the liberty Thou dost grant to those who love Thee. In our great Redeemer's name we ask. Amen. Auld Lang Syne *5 TEARS AGO ,..„ . * Dale and Mary Alice Harrison, children of Mr. and Mrs. George Harrison, 1229 S. Cedar, were ill with chickenpox. M. A.

(AP) Waldo Wade was robbed by a dog. Wade, working in his yard, pulled his handerchief from his pocket. His wallet came out, too, and fell to the ground. A neighbor's pup darted up, took a bite on the billfold and ran away. Wade started in pursuit, but the dog disappeared down the street. Wade says the billfold contained less than $5, money he'll gladly give to the person who finds the wallet. If it isn't returned, he'll have to get a duplicate driver's license and social security card. For Sunday Closing Law TOPEKA (AP)-The Rev. T Ed Barlow, district president of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has endorsed a Sunday closing law for Kansas. Barlow, in a statement issued Sunday, said the 1,100 members of the church in the 15 counties around Topeka "strongly support" a stand by the Kansas Retail Council in favor of Sunday closing." 10:30 13—Lifeline 10:35 13—Stoney Burke 11:35 13—Peter Dunn 11:45 9—Man From Cochlse 12:00 4—News U:05 4—Unity Dally Word 12:10 6—Speak Op 1Z:15 5—Movie, Conquest of Cochlse 9— News 1:00 9—Almanac Newsreel 1:05 9—Faith for Our Times NOW SHOWING Box Office opens 7:00 p.m. Shown 8:00 Only Girlsl GirlsIGiHs! * * TKUMOUr TuuitSniiKS.T.iB •inUWMIIUi FARM MACHINERY Due to ill health I will sell at Public Auction one block north of Melvern Square and 1% miles east of Melvern, Kansas on Friday.
