1 OTTAWA HERALD rt Page Ten Thursday, Feb. 28, 1963 Editorials How Honest Abe Put It President Kennedy made a strong plea early this week for an immediate tax cut. His plea was delivered before a growth symposium conducted by the American Bankers Association. In his proposal, delivered earlier to Congress, the President requested a tax cut of $10.2 billion over the next three years. Coupled with this was a plan to revise taxes. Since his plan was submitted, it has run into a number of cross fires. Some oppose a cut when the budget will be out of balance $11.9 billion. Others claim the cut in taxes isn't large enough. And there has been a lot of squabbling on how income taxes should be revised. In his talk to the bankers, the President said the tax cut should come first and he is willing for now to abandon tax revisions. His theory is that a cut in taxes will free more money for investment, expansion and boost purchasing power. This eventually will reduce unemployment and down the road will result in more persons paying taxes. You might say it is another form of pump priming. While the President's plan has received widespread organized support, members of Congress report their mail from home isn't too favorable for the tax cut until the budget is balanced. It seems that there still is a reservoir of people imbued with the old idea you can't spend what you haven't got. Along this line it might be appropriate to recall the words of Abraham Lincoln when he said: "You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by encouraging class hatred. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you, earn. You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man's initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves." Television Log Channel 4. NBC ChanneU 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Thursday BEIRUT — Street scene. This And That by jph Go Far To Get Nowhere JPH BEIRUT — The Phoenicia Hotel and Anzac Harry's Bar and Restaurant are separated by only three blocks, but they could be on opposite sides of the world. The former is glaringly new. The latter looks as old as sin, although I suspect from its name its founder was some Australian who got only halfway home from World War I. Harry's I like better. The only thing the two have in common is location on the street which runs southward along the shore from the docks to nearly the limit of the city. Both also face the sea. The view from an upper room of the Phoenicia is magnificent. You can't see the sea from Harry's. The Cabaret Eve, across the street, cuts off the view. Princess Anima, billed as the world's greatest belly dancer, Is a current attraction. The Phoenicia is a part of the cluster of Beirut's better hotels and dominates it. Anzac Harry's is in the heart of Beirut's red-light district (or oerhaps it is only one of them). A Catholic cemetery not inappropriately separates them. I stumbled across Harry's the first time 1 was in Beirut, and I have returned to it fondly each visit since. It is so awful it is endearing. A faded sign on the street wall says that here one may have "Dinkrim drinks and food like mother makes it." A card in the window indicates "Francforters" are a specialty. I do not know how much truth there is to advertising The dim. rUr- ty dining room with a dozen tables and an open kitchen across the back of the room is net stimulating to the appetite. But Anzac Harry's has a tiny flagstone terrace with room for seven small tables. Here one may sit in the midday sun with a temperature in the 70s waiting patiently for a cup of either French or Turkish coffee. Ultimately it will be served by a villainous, old crone with what hair she still has dyed a bright red. She is the entire staff and has only the assistance of a small brown and white dog who is always at her heels. t One waits, patiently, however. He knows that whichever type he ordered, when he finally is ungraciously served, the coffee will be vile. One waits pleasantly as well. Newsboys offer papers which one must decline because he doesn't read Arabic. Peasant women in gypsy-like costumes beseech alms. Arab boys do their best to shine one's shoes. Lottery tickets and sweet candies from trays are presented. Those who provide the night life come out of doors across the way to yawn, stretch, and get their first look at daylight. From their expression it is clear they don't like it. So much for Anzac Harry's. It can be said immediately pf the Phoenicia that it is everything the other enterprise is not. It out-Hiltons the Hiltons. It is a smaller sized Americana facing the Mediterranean rather than Seventh Avenue in New York. Its white shaft sparkles in the sun, and the lacy, concrete grillwork trimming the balcony provided with each room is an appropriate Moorish touch. The Phoenicia has everything. A penthouse cocktail lounge and a cabaret in the basement. A coffee ship which boasts of its American ice cream sundaes. Air conditioning, bidets, and bellboys who speak English. A sun lounge and swimming pool plus a bar so arranged that one can look through a window to watch swimmers from under water. A book store and a bank. Its own movie theater. Food such as you can get in Detroit or Chicago. But for all its features and catering to creature comforts, there is something depressing about the Phoenicia. A Phoenicia has been built, is under construction, or is in the planning stage at every major jet airport, wherever planes fly. They are as much alike as the terminals of the airports from which they draw most of their guests. And the lobbies of all of them are filled with the same kind of people. Thanks to the jet planes and the Phoenicias, it soon will be possible to go around the world and not have been anywhere. Auld Lang Syne 23 YEARS AGO Barney J. Sheridan, 85, publisher of the Paola Western Spirit since 1880, died at his home in Paola. Danny Weklions, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Welchons, 331 S. Locust, has measels. L. E. Peiinington, 4V6 miles northwest of Ottawa, reported that young grasshoppers were showing up in great numbers in the fields of his farm, 50 YEARS AGO A wire news story of the Associated Press said the Dewey Hotel at Omaha was destroyed by fire with a loss of about 75 lives. Mrs. Anna Elizabeth Burns, mother of Miss Carrie Burns, an Ottawa school teacher, died at the age of 80. Miss Alma Anthony was the story teller for children at the Ottawa library. Prayer For Today Whenever you stand up tp pray, if you have anything against anybody, forgive him. (Mark 11:25. MOFFATT.) PRAYER: Our Father, purge us of our unforgiving spirit. Help us as we enter this Lenten season to put away anything we have been harboring, consciously or subconsciously, in resentment against anyone. So may Thy forgiveness be real to us and bring us Thy peace. In Jesus' name. Amen. 4— Set Runt B- Quick Drt* UcOr«* 13—Mafic Ruicb 6:15 6-Whlrly Birds •:;{() 4—Dragnet •—Rebel 13—Dick Harp »:4& 5— News.

To Your Good Health DTs: Too Much Alcohol By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I would like to know about D.T.'s. Can anything be done unless the person is willing? Is there a complete cure? Is it dan- gerous?—F.R.W. D.T.'s, or delirium tremens is the end point of too much indulgence in strong drink. It involves jitters, nervousness, halllucina- tions, staggering gait — you name it. It's there. Whether the victim is dangerous to others depends on circumstances and on what hallucinations he may have. It is certainly dangerous (and desperately uncomfortable) for the victim himself, since there is bound to be physical damage from the amount of drinking needed to bring on delirium tremens. Cirrhosis of the liver is the one that comes first to mind. Dr. Moloei No there isn't much that can be done for the person unless he will co-operate, by which I mean quit drinking. But if he does stop, sedatives and perhaps tranquilizers may help him some, and getting him to eat and sleep properly will be still more helpful. It's hard to say that a complete cure is possible because of the probability that permanent physical damage has occurred, but the D.T.'s won't return if he stays away from alcohol. Dear Dr. Molner: I read the letter from the woman whose little boy had a seizure and showed signs of epilepsy, and she called it a fit. Why can't people learn to call them seizures or spells instead? I am an epileptic and I think it sounds so much better. Maybe I'm oversensitive.—Mrs. F.W. I don't know. Maybe you are too sensitive. But if you are, I still wish people would use terms that don't bother you. It won't hurt them; it will help you. I prefer the description, "convulsive seizure." Dear Sir: You recently had an artcle on loss of potency in men. Kindly advise something I should take to create potency.—C.E.P. What makes you think you should take something? General good health, maintenance of proper weight, and getting yourself in a healthy frame of mind are the important factors. You don't "take something" except to correct what is wrong. For instance, if you happen to have a thyroid disorder, it should be treated. Or anemia. Or whatever. But if you are reasonably healthy, the problem of loss of potency is almost always psychological. You know you are getting older and you start to worry about it, and the worry is the worst thing in the world for you in this regard. You can't expect to be a vigorous, happy-go- lucky age 29 all of your life, so expect to slow down some. And don't think you can work your self to a frazzle, stay up too late at night, worry yourself goofy about the household bills, drink several cocktails before dinner, get fat, get out of condition from lack of exercise ,and still expect to "take something" that will correct all of that for you. Dear Dr. Molner: I would appreciate your views on the "calories don't count" method of reducing. I'm especially concerned about putting a teenager on it. The lack of fruit and Vitamin C alarms me. My daughter should lose 50 pounds. The doctor can find nothing organically wrong with her.—R.B.C. Calories do count. So do foods with the proper vitamins. The best way to reduce the weight of a teenager depends on having the youngster really want to lose. Then she'll accept and follow a diet which will reduce weight gradually, provided she has what it takes not to snitch an occasional soda, bottle of pop, candy bar, bag of peanuts, or pizza. "You Can Stop Sinus Trouble! is the title of my booklet explaining what sinus trouble really is, and encouraging sinus sufferers to do something about it. For a copy write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, III., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover handling. t's TV Highlights One of the big ones this evening will be the Andy Williams show.

Wants Earlier Vote On Wheat WASHINGTON (AP)-A bill introduced by Rep. Robert* Dole, R-Kan., would require the secretary of agriculture to conduct a referendum on the 1964 wheat program before next May 15. The secretary also would be required to proclaim the 1964 national acreage allotment prior to next March 15. Under present law the referendum could be held as late as June 15 and April 15 is the deadline for proclaiming the acreage allotment, Dole said. He noted that the 1961 wheat referendum was not held until Aug. 24 and not until Aug. 30 in 1962. "Fanners complain, with justification, particularly in winter wheat areas, that the wheat referendum comes too late to permit them to do any prior planning," he said.
