OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, March 6, 1963 Wonderful Opportunity (Today's guest editorial is by Marilyn Wasmund, Franklin County 4-H Council reporter) "Girls Buried Alive After Being Beaten." This was one of the headlines that appeared in I recent issue of this paper. This headline shocked and horrified many people. It made me wonder what could have caused such a fit of temper that a young man would beat two girls and leave them to die. Surely it wasn't just because the girls left him and started to walk home. I couldn't help but wonder as I read this article if this young man had enjoyed the advantages e an organization such as the 4-H clubs? If he was an active 4-H member, perhaps his time and energies would have been so spent that this crime wouldn't have been committed. As we observe National 4-H Club Week, >',o realize what a wonderful opportunity 4-H membership is to the more than two million boys and girls in the nation who are learning "To Make the Best Better." A project and complimenting activity can be found to suit the interests and needs of each boy and girl between the ages of 8 and 20. Those who This And That by jph like animals may have a livestock project which might be enlarged over a number of years and eventually start the member with his own business or oank account, Every girl needs the knowledge gained from 4- H home economics projects to form the base of her homemaking skill, for certainly nearly every 4-H girl (or any girl) will have a home of her own someday. To meet the demand of changing times are projects such as dog care, automotive and personal development. . . streamlined to fit the tastes of modern young people. In the same way, 4-H fun has been tailored to please the pace of today's world. Friendships strengthened through club to national associations are often the closest friendships made throughout one's life. Here in Kansas, where agriculture remains our first industry, we know that the new generation, represented by the 31,000 4-H members, is the best hope for maintaining cur agricultural status. The best principles for farming and homemaking are included in the 4-H program. I hope you will take a few moments this week to give some thought to the achievement and potential of the 4-H program. Let us read more headlines like this: "4-H'er Earns Trip to American Royal." Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-13, CBS Channel 9. ABO Wednesday Delightful Dinner In Delhi DELHI — It is a small world, as I seem to remember has been said before. A year and a half ago I spent a week hi a newspaper plant in r<ottayam, down in the southern tip of India. Its publisher and I became good friends, and he entertained me handsomely. Six months ago he visited me in my home. Last night he was the host, halfway back again around the world. ;I was invited to dinner at the Rome of his Delhi correspondent, fhe latter and his wife live in in "Officer's Hutment." It is a modest unit of a row of one- floor apartments, left over from the days of the British raj. *• The evening was a typically Indian one. There must have been Iwo dozen guests. The men fthook hands with the foreigner fts introductions were made. The women responded with the traditional Indian gesture, which consists of placing the hands together in front of the chest, almost as if in prayer, and bowing deeply. -The women then immediately disappeared into $e back part of the home, taking a bevy of chil- < ten with them. The men remained on the veran- |ah, talking of the things men talk about before i inner. There were long pegs of,whisky for those i ho wished. There were fruit juices for those whose ulcers or religion make them abstainers. There was a moment of mild excitement when a patented bottle of seltzeis water exploded in the |To Your Good Health host's hands. There were no injuries, fortunately. The women crept back into view when dinner was served. It was eaten standing, because there simply wasn't room in the hutment for everyone to sit down. It began with cups of an excellent tomato bouillon, laced with cream. Then everyone filled his plate from the buffet table. But he took care as to which side of it he passed along! One side of it was vegetarian, its dishes were for those whose religion not only removes meat from the diet but also such animal by-products as butter and eggs. The other, or heathen, row of platters contained bits of chicken, small slices of fried fish, meat balls, and a selection of salads. It was all excellent but so highly spiced with curry powder that it left my mouth feeling as though it contained a small serving of pickled tongue. For dessert there was a cake, and finally there was coffee. Or so it charitably may be called. The Indians have many virtues, but making coffee is not one of them. They may have renounced the British Empire but not their acquired taste for tea. Then came the most civilized feature of a social evening in this country. Seconds after the first" guest had set down his coffee cup, he was thanking ' his host and hostess for a delightful time. Within a minute all the others were waiting their turn to do the amenities. Within no more than five minutes all had departed; the hostess, no doubt, was picking up the cups; and the host had sat down, removed his shoes, and was relaxedly wiggling his toes in the soft evening air.

JOSEPH G. MOLNER 4* *Dear Dr. Molner: I have a bloody discharge from my lower area. I asked my mother and she said it's nothing. I am a 12-year-old girl who jfovld like to know what causes it—MARY X ; My first reaction to a letter Jike this is, "Here's a poor Beared child who wants assurance." My second is, the young- fcter shows more common sense than her mother by asking for an explanation instead of brushing the whole matter aside with •'it's nothing." • I take it for granted that the young girl is starting her first menstrual period (there can be a. variation of several years in age.) .The time to answer sex questions of children is when they ask them. It's embarrassing and usual- ty futile to bring up the subject out of a clear sky and try to ram "important" information into a youngster's uninterested head. 1 But when young people ask — that's the per- (ect time! : What this 12-year-old girl today wants is just an explanation — what's happening to her. : She should be told, as simply as possible, (hat Different species propagate in different ways. Women produce an ovum or egg every four weeks. If the egg is fertilibed it becomes a foetus and eventually a baby. r If the egg is not fertilibed, Mother Nature gets fid of it and prepares a new one. It gets rid of the old egg by flushing it away with a flow of fclood called menstruation. ; It is not "bleeding" in the ordinary sense of from a wound. Then the blood automatically begins to clot and hence heal the wound. Menstrual bleeding does not clot readily, but continues to flow until it has served its purpose. Then it stops. '. At 12, the young girl has probably heard something about the period from schoolmates, but how fccurate the information is conjecturable. . What she wanted from her mother, and then turned to me to get, was just a plain-worded explanation. Once she is assured that this is normal, and once she knows, basically, why it happens and why there is no need for fear, she can lelax. ' (It might be well to adivse her, too, that the period does not always occur regularly at first. Sometimes it does, but it is somewhat more fkely to start, then skip for several months, after which the period resumes and eventually becomes regular.) ; Dear Dr. Molner: I have a relative who drinks vinegar, honey and water, and eats wheat germ pills and an iodine ration. She has arthritis, but not too bad. She weighs 170. I told her I thought the honey was fattening, and that she shouldn't take iodine without a doctor's advice.— Mrs. J. K. Some individuals can be harmed by too much iodine. The other items aren't likely to do any harm but they aren't medicine, either. Of course the honey, being mostly sugar, contains calories and enough of it can be fattening. Are you bothered with ringing in the ears? If so, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., for the booklet, "Ear Noises — Their Causes and Cures," enclosing with your request 10 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO G. H. Hicks, 104 Willow, reported that his car, parked near the Christian Church, was stripped. The water pump, fan and distributor box were taken. Pat Dale, courthouse custodian, was injured when a window fell on his head. Martha Baldwin, 319 E. 4th, was ill with measles. 50 FEARS AGO A half century ago, Ottawa housewives were clipping recipes such as the following from pages of the Herald: Coffee Jelly One envelope of Knox Sparkling Gelatine; one- half cup of cold water; three cups of clear, strong hot coffee; three-quarters cup of sugar; juice of one lemon; one-fourth cup of sherry wine. Soak the gelatine in the cold water for five minutes and dissolve in the hot coffee; add lemon juice and sugar; stir until dissolved; strain over the wine; turn into a mold; serve with whipped cream. Prayer For Today Every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. (Matthew 7:17.) PRAYER: Our Father, help us to remove the corrupt qualities within our hearts before they seize opportunities to strangle that which is good. In the name of Jesus, who taught us to pray, "Our Father who art in heaven. . . Amen." 6— Ont Way to Safety • •V0 5 — Farm ?acti 7:00 4— Today 5— College at the Air 13— Rush Hour 7:30 5 — Moment ot Meditation J:3B 5— Cartoonland 7:45 5— Kins; and Odle 7:50 »-Call to Worship 7:58 B— News • :00 5-13— Cantata Kangaroo •—Columbia Lectures 8:30 I— Deputy and Fell* »:00 4— Say When 5 — Jack LaLanne 9— Romper Room 13— Calendar 9:2J 4— News 8:30 6-13 — 1 Love Lucy 4— Play Your Hunch B — Divorce Court 10:00 5-13— McCoys 4— Price Is Right 10:30 5-13— Pete and Gladys 4 — Concentration 9 — Day in Court 10:55 »— News 11:00 4 — First Impression 5-13— Love of Lit* 9 — Jane Wyman 11:25 5-13— News U:30 4 — Truth or Consequences 5-13— Search For Tomorrow 8— Tours For A Song 11:45 5-13— Guiding Light 11:55 News 13:00 Noon 4— Hi Noon Cartoons 8 — Ernie Ford 5-13— News 18:10 5— Speak Up 11:15 5— Sports 13— Farm Report U:20 4— News, markets 5— Local Interview 12:30 4— Accent 8 — Father Knows Best 5-13 — As World Turns 1:00 4— Merv Oriffin 6-13 — Password 8— Movie, "Kind and Four Queens" 1:30 5-13— Houst Party 1:55 4— News t:00 4— Loretta Young 5-13— To Tell Th« Truth »:25 5-13— News 8— News «:30 4— Award Theater 8 — Seven Keys 5-13— Millionaire 3:00 4— Match Game -813 — Secret Storm 9— Queen (or a Day 4— News »:30 4 — Make Room For Daddy 8— Who Do You Trust* 8-13— Edge of Night «:00 4— Superman 5— Cousin Ken's Carnival 8 — Torey and Friends 4:15 13— Turban's Land of Magi* 4:30 8— Mickey Mouse Club i:00 4— See Hunt 8— Quick Draw McGraw 13—Mafic Ranch 4:15 S-Whlrly Birds 4—Dragnet •—Rebel 13-Dlcb Harp S:46 6-News.

By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - "Young Doctor Malone," and all his friends, relatives and associates, have started the last month of the daytime serial's existence on NBC. Com April 1, after almost 30 years on radio and television, they depart for the Valhalla of canceled programs. It promises to be a rather busy month as the cast goes about the business of knotting loose ends. Currently there's a murder trial in progress—and in soap-opera- land a murder trial normally stretches out for months. This will be speeded up so that the home audience can know whether Jill Malone Steele and a young in- terne are found guilty of killing her husband—an unlikely windup. Then there's going to be a marriage — a doctor and nurse who have been what is called "romantically inclined" are going to take that leap. All this is what Doris Quinlan, producer of the series, called "tying off the current story lines." The show has been around so ^^ LMcutminy - - CH 2-4700 HUBBY!

Neither Jerry Malone nor his wife, Tracy, are involved in anything spectacular at the moment —except their daughter's murder trial, of course. Dr. David's wif» disappeared a spell back and is believed to have drowned. The writer, Richard Holland, didn't make the drowning absolutely positive, because there was some thought that maybe some time later the missing wife might return to start a new story line. Now they'll just leave her among the missing. "We hope that the show will come back some time, so we're not going to make things too final," said Mrs. Quinlan. "The Malones have been sort of separated lately. We're just going to bring them back together." The venerable serial's place, another victim of poor ratings, will be taken by a game show, "You Don't Say."
