OTTAWA HERALD Ptft Foot Tuesday, March 5, 1963 Editorials Hard To Be Independent Making itself felt on the West Coast of this country is a new organization known as the Parent-Teacher Group. It is drawing its members from the Parent- Teachers Association. The P-TA is an old and well-known organization that has been around a long time to help promote better schools. Why, then, the upstart group which got its start in Spokane, Wash.? The reason can be found in the philosophy of the P-TG. It is based on local autonomy. It keeps its dues money at home and it shuns the super organization which the P-TA has on state and national level. Other than this difference, its aims are the same as the P-TA, to promote the educational welfare of children. But this question of local autonomy is an interesting one. It isn't confined solely to the P-TA or the P-TG. It can be found in the March of Dunes, the Community Chests, the Heart Fund, the Chambers of Commerce and even in our churches, to name a few. Can an organization be more effective if it confines its purposes to local problems, keeps it funds at home and goes about its own way with local talent and run by local people? Or should it be a part of a national group which sets policy, draws wide support and thereby can make itself felt in legislative halls across the land? And in doing so it can tap state and federal tills for the projects it supports. Certainly with present means of communication and transportation we are losing our local identities, and the problems of one part of the country soon are felt everywhere. To be independent any more, as were our forefathers, is becoming excruciatingly difficult.

This And That by jph Rockefeller Cash In India JPH I DELHI — Rockefeller and Ford Foundations' • money is ubiquitous. Go anywhere in the world and you find it. A million of Rockefeller's has been planted on the outskirts of New Delhi. It has flowered into the India International Centre. The Centre is a graceful, rambling building, • largely of glass and concrete. It sits in spacious, well-landscaped grounds with emerald - green lawns nicely trimmed with flowers, and with reflecting pools and a fountain for added interest. To the back runs a large park on which stand monumental tombs of 18th century Indian emperors. There is something almost monastic about the Centre. The 52 sleeping rooms recall bachelor officers' quarters with their functional simplicity. There is a dining hall (in which a few sparrows always flutter about to pick up the crumbs), a library with largely empty shelves, and various conference rooms. The atmosphere of the Centre is one of quite, seclusion, cerebration, and repose. The repose, however, lasts only until about seven in the morning. Then the staff boys in their white or khaki uniforms begin clattering through the uncarpeted halls. They tap on doors to supply early tea, newspapers, or shoe shining. Flirther sleep becomes impossible. Guests must be up and about their earnest business of the day. And earnest it is. The Centre is populated principally by groups of serious souls who gather here : for a few days to ponder problems to which there - are no immediate solutions. Pondering this week ' are 30 or 40 representative Indian newspaper publishers, editors, and journalists, abetted to some extent by two Ceylonese, two Australians, and an American. He's me. : Under the auspices of the newly organized Press : Institute of India they are studying in depth the prospects of the Indian press for the decade ahead. The prospects, it already has developed, are both bright and discouraging. Here is the situation. : There are 436 million Indians. Perhans one-fourth " of them are literate. Of these possibly half are economically able to pay two or three cents a day for a paper, which is limited in size by government regulation to from four to 12 pages. But only ". five million of them today do. • In India there are but 437 daily newspapers. Their circulations run from token to no more than . 150,000. Among them, last year, they used 130,; 000 tons of newsprint. This is less than the con- I sumption of the New York Times alone, in years \ when its organized workers permit it to publish. ' These newspapers should double or triple their circulation in the next 10 years, thanks to increasing ;• literacy and an ever so slowly increasing aver| age income. If they are to do so, however, they !•- must overcome many problems. Most of these ; problems trace back to the government. . The Indian press badly needs skilled technicians, ' both editorial and mechanical, to train their staffs. t The government will not permit them to import ^ any. They must have more machinery if they I are to serve more readers. The government will not * provide them with the foreign exchange neces- [ sary for them to buy abroad. ; They must have more newsprint if they are to : expand their circulation. The government not on* fy will not grant them more foreign exchange to 4—Be* Bunt •—Yogi Bear 13—Bugs Bunny • il& 5—Whirl; Birds 1:30 4—Dragnet «—Rebel 13—Dr. Ichabod »:45 6—Newi 13—Sport* 8:85 13— Weather 11:00 5-B— Newi 6:10 5-9- Weather • :15 6—Sporti 0—News «:25 6—Speak Op 6:30 4—Laramte 5—Stump the Star* B—Combat 13—Marshall Dillon 1:00 5-13—Lloyd Bridget 1:30 4—Empire ft-13-Red Skeltoa 9—Hawaiian Eye «:30 4—Dick Powell 6-13—Jack Benny 8—Untouchables tttOO 5-13—Carry Moor* »:SO 4—Ensign O'Toole 9—Detectives 10:00 4-5-a-i3—Newi 10:10 5-B—Weather 10:16 4—Johnny Carson 5—Movie, "Bom Town" B—Steve Allen 10:20 4-13—Sportf 10:80 13—Lifeline 10:35 13—Hawaiian By* 11:35 13—Peter Qua 11:49 B—Mao From Cochlse 11:00 4—New* »:U5 4—Unity Dally Word U:10 6—Speak Op 11:15 B—Newi 12:25 5—Movie, "Garden Murder Case" 12:30 B—Almanac Newsreel 12:35 B—Faith for Our Times 1:20 4— New*, Market* 6— Local Interview IS<3V 4— Accent ••13— A* ttt* World Tuns •—Father Know* Best l:OB 4— Merv Oriffln 5-13— Password B— Movie, "Race Street" 1:30 5-13— House Party t:6S 4— News COO 4— Loretta Toung 5-13— To Tell The Truth 2:26 5-13— News B— New* C30 4 — Award Theater 6-13— Millionaire u —Seven K«y§ COO 4— Match Gam* 6-13— Secret Storm —Queen for A Day 3:25 4— New* 3:30 4 — Make Room For Daddy 5-13— Edge Of Night 9- Who do you Trustt 4:00 4 — Superman 6— Cousin Ken'* Carnival B — Torey and Friend* 13— New* Weather 1:16 13 — Turban'* Land of Magle 4:30 B— Mickey Mouse Club 4 — Funtlme i:00 6 — Sea Hunt B— Torey and Friend* 13— Quick Draw UcOra* 5:15 5— Whirly Bird* 6:30 4— Dragnet B— Rebel 13— Scope-Kama* University 5:45 6— News 13— sport* With Dm Ncisoa 6:56 13— Weatbm • :00 4— New* 6— New* B— News 13— News 6:iu 4 — Sport* 5-8-Weather Wednesday buy more foreign paper than their present sharply rationed quantities. It also requires them to take 25 per cent of their tonnage from the government - owned Indian mill. Not only that, it charges them considerably more than the world price for the highly inferior domestic product, which amounts to an added tax on the newspapers. But there is a case to be made for the government. Its supply of foreign exchange is most limited. It has a major defense effort to finance. On the one hand it realizes the need of informing the public on the activities of the Chinese invaders and of persuading the people to play their personal parts in the defense program, which it can do only through the papers. On the other hand the defense effort is meaningless if it cannot import the tools with which to fight. So it has decided for the moment to put the guns before the buttering cup. The newspapers can only suffer, but not in silence. They have further reason to protest. In principle the Indian government is for a free press. In practice it is highly sensitive to criticism. And it shows its vexation by depriving the critics of their share of government advertising which is a major source of press revenue. So the prospects of the Indian newspapers are more than a little cloudy. It is no wonder their representatives have secluded themselves at the Centre for a week to try to determine what is best to do. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Litwin's Store was burglarized. Merchandise valued at $190 was taken, along with about $60 cash, it was reported. A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Payne, 820 N. Oak. Donald Capper, 315% E. 9th, was ill with scarlet fever. 50 YEARS AGO The postoffice and depot at Imes and the depot at Rantoul were burglarized. At the Imes postof- fice stamps amounting to $140 were taken. At the Imes depot the loss was $2 in pennies, and at the Rantoul depot a pouch of mail was taken. Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Ogg were preparing to move into the residence at 14th and Cedar for merly occupied by the family of C. H. Oakes. Samuel Kester, a Santa Fe engineer, was injured when a piece of coal fell from the coal chute at Ottawa Junction and struck him. Prayer For Today Except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no wise enter into the kindom of heaven. (Matthew 5:20. ASV.) PRAYER: Our Father, our hearts leap to the high challenge of Jesus' teachings. Grant that we may remain true to them and to Thee when we find ourselves confronted with other standards. Strengthen us to hold steadfastly to Jesus' high ideals in the faith that in Thy strength all things are possible. We ask this in His name.

MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: My 15-year-old son, who seems to be in good condition, has had albumin in his urine for more than a year. Is this anything to be alarmed about? He has been checked by two physicians.—Mrs. E.H. Probably not. Albumin is not too unusual in children, especially during adolescence. For people in normal health, albumin can appear without being a danger signal. Many athletes have it after strenuous games, only for it to disappear readily. There is also what is called "orthostatic albuminuria." Briefly, this means that albumin is not present on waking in the morning, but appears after the individual has been up and about for some time. But albumin can be a danger sign in a child as well as in an adult. For example, in kidney disease or congenital defects of the atorgan (which, however, would be detected by X-ray or cystrosco- pic examination) albumin will usually be present. If there is kidney infection, there will usually be a prior history of it, such as from tonsillitis. A disorder causing bleeding in the urinary tract will also cause albumin, and it is not unusual to find ablumin in the course of a high fever, or associated with diarrhea. Both of these conditions tend to dehydrate the individual, and there is not sufficient fluid to carry away the proper amount of albumin. Thus, you see, the presence of albumin can be a clue to a number of widely-differing problems and it isn't a sign to be ignored. Yes albumin can be present without meaning any illness. Since the boy described has been checked by two physicians who have not found any other indication of anything wrong, I doubt that there is cause to be upset It would be wise to have the boy checked from time to time, say once a year, as a precaution but I expect that the adolescent albumin will dis appear eventually. Dear Dr. Molner: I enclose 20 cents in coin ant a long, self-addressed envelope for a copy of you booklet, "How to Heal Peptic Ulcers and Keep Them Healed." Is a peptic ulcer the same as a gastric ulcer? The doctor says I have the latter.—J.C. Peptic refers to the digestion. Therefore a peptic ulcer could be either of the stomach (a gastric ulcer) or of the area immediately beyond the stomach (the duodenum? and hence a duodena ulcer.) The term "stomach ulcer" is often loosely us« for either a gastric or a duodenal ulcer, but there are differences. Symptoms that appear promptl after eating usually suggest a gastric ulcer symptoms that come an hour or two later ar usually related to a duodenal ulcer. (The gastri ulcer is often the more serious, so heed your doc tor's instructions.) Dear Dr. Molner: What about the so-called "birth control pills"? Do they really work? Ar they safe? Is a physician's prescription required -Mrs. M.F. Such pills have been tested and appear to be safe. They should be taken only under a physician* supervision, as the dosage has to be calculate! A prescription is necessary. Not all physicians are in complete agreement a to whether this method is suitable for everyone, s I suggest that you get your doctor's opinion be fore making up your mind. Much heart trouble is preventable. Write to Dr Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., for your copy < his booklet, "How To Take Care Of Your Heart, enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover cost of printin and handling.
