ft-' li* 1 OTTAWA HERALD Rigc FOOT Editorials Wednesday, Feb. 27, 1963 Lenten For Everyone Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent and a period of reflection and penitence for the serious Christian. The Lenten season's origin is based on the 40 days Christ spent in prayer and fasting. For His followers, from the early days of the church, it has been a time to reflect seriously on the past with an eye to the future — the remainder of each man's own life, death and finally his eternal reward. This period begins 40 days before Easter, the Christian feast of Christ's Resurrection, and in the early church, as in many churches today it began with the imposition of ashes upon head of each Christian with the words, "Remember, man, thou art dust and unto dust thou shalt return." Through the succeeding days the church members looked back over their past lives, praying, fasting and making small sacrifices in reparation for their sins while keeping in mind that "life is short and death is sure." On Easter morning all Christians This And That by jph down through the agea have celebrated Easter with festivity and with the faith that the time will come when each one will die and, according to each one's choosing, gain or lose eternal happiness. In Ottawa and Franklin County each church will observe the Lenten season with special services, or devotions, and programs based largely on the final days of Christ's life, His death and resurrection. For each church member the programs and devotions will have a personal meaning that will affect him at least for the minute, if not for life. Regardless of one's particular faith, Lent provides an opportunity for the more faithful to do something extra for the edification of the soul. But in such a season, the less faithful, even the non-religious, can find rewards and refreshment in a long look at themselves and a reassertion of interest and enthusiasm in whatever is most sacred to them. A Conversation In Rome JPH ROME — He said he was Lee, somebody or other. I seem never to get names. He wasn't drunk. He was working manfully toward it, though. He had a reason. He was making his leisurely way toward London for a climax session with his wife. He w a s going to insist on a divorce. Lee whoever he was, said he was 59. He didn't look it. This was particularly surprising because of the life he said he had led. He had an entourage of two. One was an attractive but fading woman. She looked Greek, but she said she was Spanish. She must have been. No one but a Spaniard would claim to be one. Lee's other companion was a young Italian. A taxi driver, I gathered. He was serving as Lee's guide, protector, companion, and cashier. They had no common language, but they communicated in some mysterious way. Lee, and I have nothing to go on but his own statements—repeated several times because he was hard on his way to getting drunk—was an old Hollywood hand. A special effects man, whatever that is. But he had been away from California for 11 years. It seems that once he had come abroad, one picture led to another. They had led him, moreover, to many places, England, Australia, Italy, North Africa, and Germany. Whenever he had got ready to go home, somebody had offered him another assignment too tempting to turn down. The tax angles on top of that had been ir-nst attractive. He had made good money through all these vagabond years, but somehow he never seemed able to save any. To Your Good Health Principally Lee had done special effects for these costume dramas that have to do with the Bible and ancient Rome. He named them. I hadn't seen a one. He shook his head sadly, but he didn't hold it against me. Apparently he had encountered before odd people who didn't go to the movies. He identified the faded woman with him. She was the wife of a boon companion. He was a set production fellow. Probably the best in the world. "A genius, take my word for it." The genius wife smiled and offered no dissent. Lee went on and on with no urging. His most recent assignment had been on "Cleopatra" with Elizabeth Taylor. He had been busy recently with the final retakes. Re-freshing himself with another straight gin, he went on at some length about Liz. She was, he said at some length, a wonderful woman. The cards, though, had been stacked against her. Her first husband had been, and he used a word that is not to be reprinted in a family journal. Her second was a rich playboy. Her third, Mike Todd, was quite a man. Lee, so he said, had done special effects for "Around the World in Eighty Days." Eddie Fisher was just a callow kid. As for Richard Burton, the husband-to- be as soon as two divorces have been arranged, Lee simply shrugged his shoulders and dismissed the subject. He went on. He said Liz was a wonderful mother to her four children, two by one husband, one by adoption, and a fourth by another husband. She kept a nice home, when she was home. "What I like about her most," he concluded, -"is that she is always true to one man at a time." I brought him back to the subject of his divorce. Why was he demanding one? "She's making $800 a week as a script writer. That's more than I do, and I'm getting damned tired of it" Impetico Is Contagious Dr. Mower By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I have children, aged one and two. My daughter had impetigo when she was five months old, and now my son has it. I keep them as clean as I can. What can I do to get rid of this condition?—Mrs. C.M. Impetigo is an infection of the skin, not only infectious (caused by germs) but contagious (passed from person to person). The germ can be either a form of the streptococcus or staphylococcus. Either, once it starts, soon sets up infected pustules It can, of course, be a dangerous infection as well as a messy, unpleasant one. True, cleanliness is extremely important but that isn't the whole story. Despite all reasonable care, it is still possible for the infection to spread because you can't see the germs. They may be transmitted by a child touching another, or by use of another's handkerchief, toys, pencils or whatnot. Today's case gives at least a hint that in this instance the disease may have been passed, not from child to child, but from adult to child. Someone in or close to the household may be a carrier of the germs, more particularly the staphylococcus variety. This has been known to happen many times and is one of the threats against which well-run nurseries are constantly on guard. • These germs can be carried in the nose, cause no trouble to the carrier, yet become devilishly mean if they reach a person who possesses poor protection against them. It sometimes is necessary to have laboratory cultures grown and examined from nose and throad swabbings of others in the family, especially the parents, and I think that is the logical starting point in this case. Dear Dr. Molner: With anemia, can the person merely add iron the daily diet or is liver- also required?—Mrs. S.S, . Ill depends on fee type of anemia. There are "several. In some cases iron in tablet form is suf- ficient. In pernicious anemia, Vitamin B (or liver extract) is necessary. Dear Dr. Molner: A book I read recommends apple cider vinegar in water to reduce high blood pressure. Is this really effective?—S.J. No. Vinegar, whether from apples or • other sources, never lowered anybody's blood pressure. The A.M.A. and other groups have done their best to point out the fallacies of this particular (and amazingly popular) book of nostrums and folk fables. It isn't that the old "snake-oil" type remedies it lists are necessarily harmful, but when people start putting faith in certain nonsensical folk medicines, they stop looking for some of the really effective ones which do now exist. The outstanding examples, of course, are people who go to quacks who claim they can "cure" cancer, or become wedded to the idea that some charm or other will "cure" diabetes. The remedies may not harm them directly, but many die because they didn't seek scientific help until too late. There are various treatments and medications which will reduce or control high blood pressure but none is as simple as cider or any other household remedy, and it is scientifically childish to pretend that all cases of high blood pressure are alike, because they aren't. Hemorrhoids can be cured! If troubled with fissures, fistulas, itching and other rectal problems, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, M., requesting a copy of the booklet, "The Real Cure For Hemorrhoids," enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover printing and handling. Prayer For Today Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5.) PRAYER: Forgive our wrongs, 0 God, and give new life to all who pray for Thy divine blessing. With Thy refreshing goodness and Thy sustaining might, accompany each one on his way, whether through prosperity or adversity, in joy or in sorrow. In Chip's name we pray. Amen.
