TTAWA HERALD Pa«t Ponr Editorials Tuesday, March 12, 1963 Industry Support Needed The director of Uncle Sam's big space • program, James Webb, spent several days in Kansas last week. He visited KU, K-State, stopped in Topeka and then went on to Wichita. His visit here was prompted by members .of the state's delegation in Washington who have become concerned that the state is lagging in defense contracts. While he promised nothing, Webb did • offer some sound advice. He said in- : dustry must provide more funds for "research at our various universities. Our state schools and our industries must have a closer bond. It is necessary that -college experts be used more as consultants. Industry must be asked to contribute to educational research projects, :to promote university programs, to support scholars and to endow professorships. To Your Good Health This sounds like a big order. It is. But this is what has been done on the East and West coasts which now have the lion's share of space agency work. For decades Kansas has had an agrarian economy. With such it has prospered. One of the reasons it has is that our farmers have leaned heavily on the experts at Manhattan where one of the world's best agricultural colleges is located. Times, though, have changed the state. We are becoming more industry- minded. We must expand into new fields if we are to supply the jobs needed for population of the state. One of the surest ways to accomplish this expansion is to support the research work of our universities. What Keeps You Awake? Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER This is the second of three articles on insomnia.—The Editor The cure of sleeplessness, or insomnia, is really a question of finding out what is keeping you awake, and then doing something about it. Roughtly speaking, we spend about one-third of our lives sleeping. Eight hours a night is about right for most people. Yes, I've heard all about Thomas A. Edison's boast that he "never slept more than four hours," but I also recall the wry comment of his close friend, Henry Ford, who added that Edison caught his few hours of sleep "about three times every 24 hours." People vary a little, but basically they are about the same. We all need sleep. If we don't sleep at night, we make up for it with naps during the day, or we spend much of our time being only half awake, or, in rare cases, we really lack sufficient sleep and pay for it in soon-ruined health. One way or another, most of us do get enough sleep because Nature demands it But it is a lot Auld Lang Syne 25 TEARS AGO Herington High School defeated Ottawa High School, 27 to 19, in the regional basketball tournament at Osage City. Nearly 100 relatives and friends gathered to help "Uncle George" Batdorf of WellsviUe celebrate his 100th birthday. The Plaza Theater advertised that "Snow White" would open at the theater on April 1. 60 YEARS AGO A chicken theif was active in the west residential areas of Ottawa. Fred Bogue's chicken- house at 7th and Beech was pretty well cleaned out one night. The Ottawa Custom Tailoring Co., a shirt factory, opened for business on the second floor of the Bostoi. Store building, with a capacity for manufacturing 160 garments a day. A. P. Elder was re-elected president of the Kansas State Association of Master Plumbers, without a doctor's help — if you are objective. What about self-induced causes of sleeplessness? Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel* 5-18, CBS Channel 9, ABC Tuesday more comfortable and efficient if we can go to bed at night and get our eight hours, and arise ready for 16 hours of vital living. Insomnia is rarely an isolated condition. Care ful probing by doctors in such cases almost always reveal other factors in a person's emotional make-up, or habits, or physical condition which 'are importantly related to the difficulty in getting a regular solid night's sleep. You can identify many of these for yourself Do you use stimulants? Tea? Coffee? "Reducing" drugs? "Pep" pills Do you smoke too much Are you taking thyroid medication? If the dose is a little on the high side (for you) it can keep you awake. What about phsyical factors? What are the noticeable elements when you thrash around and try to go to sleep, or when you wake up? Aches, cramps, itching, digestive disturbances, a cough, need for night urination? These problems are all fairly common sleep- preventers. They are, most of the time, corrective. If you have one or more of these complaints, have it (or them) treated. It isn't fair for you to neglect these and still demand that your doctor stop your insomnia. Check your bedroom environment. Is it too warm? To cool? To dry? Sagging springs or an otherwise uncomfortable bed can disrupt sleep. The answer is to repair the bed, not seek a pill. A pillow may be too high or too low. Does a light shine into your eyes? Is there noise you can mute? Or is the room too quiet? Even having an alarm clock that ticks may help some people. Splashing waves at lake or seashore is a restful sound. For mild aches or discomfort, aspirin at bedtime is often effective, but remember this: Some compounds contain caffein which may be fine for daytime use but can inhibit sleep at night. So read the label. It will tell what's in the tablets. Some more tricks on getting to sleep tomorrow. Prayer For Today Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law's condemnation, by himself becoming u curse for us when he wos crucified. (Galatians 3:13. Phillips.) PRAYER: 0 God, our Father, who hast created us so that we are restless until we find our rest in Thee, we thank Thee for Jesus Christ, Thy Son. Help us to find in Him our redemption from sin and our peace with Thee. Help us to become better than we now are. In His name we pray. Amen. 4—8e» Runt •-Yogi Bear 13—Bug* Bunny •:» 5—Whirl* Birds 1:30 4—Dragnet •-Rebel 13—Dr. Icbabod »:48 5—New* 13—Sport* •:55 13—Weather «:00 5-9—Newi «:10 S-B-Weather 6:15 5—Sport* •—New* • :28 6—apeak Dp 6:30 4—Laramle 6—stump the Star* •—Combat 13—Marshal) Dillon 7:00 6-13—Lloyd Bridge* 1:30 4—Emplr* 5-13—Bed Bkeltoa 8—Hawaiian Eye 8.30 - 4—Dick Powell 5-13—Jack Bennjr •— Untouchables <*:00 5-13—Garry Moor* 11:30 4—Ensign O'Toole 9—Detectives 10:00 4-6-SM3—New* 10:10 5-»-WeatheT 10:15 4—Johnny Carson 5—Movie, "San Francisco" «—St.evp Allen 13—Weather 10:20 13—Sports 10:30 13—Lifeline 10:35 13—Hawaiian By* 11:35 13—Peter Gun 11:45 •—Man From Cochitt 11:00 4—New* 1S:05 4—Unity Dally Word U:10 5—Movie, "Free and Easy" 12:15 0—News 12:30 9—Almanac Newireel 1*:35 0—Faith (or Out Time* Wednesday 8:B 4— Dally Word METALUC EMBRACE - Alva Cdauro appears M Sally O'Malley, campus disc jockey, in whacky story abort "After*," a mwkaUy gifted robot, on Dobie Gillis, 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, ..-li-ia/,^- fluid, | gj*] 1). * r ' ^ 4 — Continental Classroom 13 — Continental Classroom 6:26 5— Profile 6:80 4— Operation Alphabet 13— College of ttM Air «:M 5— Farm Pact* 1:00 4— Today 5-College el the Air 13— Rush Hour. 1:30 5— Moment ot •fediutleej T:3» 5— Cartoonland 7:45 5— King and Odi* 7:50 B— Call to Worship 7:55 •—New* 8:00 5-13— Captain Kangaroo •—Columbia Lecture* 8:30 t — Deputy and Fells • :oo 4— Say When •i — lack La Lanne •—Romper Room 13— Calendar •:25 4— New* 9:30 4— Play Your Rune* 5-13 — I Love Lucy 8— Divorce Court 10:00 4— Price 1* RUM 5-13— McCoy* to:30 4 — Concentration 5-13— Pete and Olady* 8— Day In Court 10:558— New* moo 4— Tour First ImpresslOB 5-13— Love of Life •—Jan* Wymao 11:85 6-13— New* 11:30 4— Truth or Consequences 5-13— Search for Tomorrow 8— Tours For A 8oo> 11:45 5-13— Ouldlni Light 11:53 4— New* 12:00 4— Cartoon* 6— News 8— Ernie Ford 13— News 11:10 5— flpeak Up 1»:15 B— Sports 13— Farm Report 1*:ZO 4— New*.

My destination from Bombay was Nasik. It is 114 miles to the northeast, just beyond the divide of the chain of mountains, hot too tall here, which extends the entire lengt hof western India. The elapsed time was three hours and 50 minutes. We made it right on schedule. On the return trip, though, we were an hour late. The Indian Railways are made distinctive by a certain smell. You catch it strongly the instant you enter a station. It follows you into the trains. You do not lose the last whiff of it until you are half a block away from where you get off. The odor is that of urine. Either that, or some strong disinfectant with precisely the same scent. The cars, on departure, look clean and thoroughly scrubbed. To the fastidious westerner they feel, uh, soiled. The trains here provide the best way to see this great country which is considerably larger than ours. They permit the landscape to unroll leisurely because they infrequently reach the speed of 50 miles an hour. They stop often to permit passengers to stretch their legs and provide themselves with cups of tea. bottled soft drinks, selections of fresh fruit, sickly-sweet sweets, and small sacks of varfious, highly seasoned Indian foods, most of which rest unhappily in the American stomach. They are bustling, noisy scenes, these station stops. Barefooted porters, in khaki shorts and bright red blouses to identify themselves, shout tor passage through the throng as they stagger along with heavy suitcases balanced on their heads. The refreshments salesmen cry their wares at the top of their voices. Each outgoing passenger has at least half a dozen family members or friends along to wish him a noisy farewell. A bell clangs and the locomotive gives a shrill whistle as a reminder it is time to be on the way again. In motion the principal thing the Indian trams have to offer, after one has tired of looking at the scenery, which, on the way to Nasik, is made up of sere, forlorn hillsides largely, is conviviality and an atmosphere of family intimacy. The arrangements of the cars and the lengths of the trips, some of which last two days or more, make nothing else possible. Whether the invitation of the Indian Railways is "come as you are" or not, this is the sartorial spirit Most of the passengers, moreover, bring enough along with them to see them through an expedition to Outer Mongolia. Heavy suitcases. Earthen containers wor water. Big boxes that might be filled with carpenters' tools. Tea urns. Bedding rolls. Containers filled with assorted fruit. All of this baggage leaves so little room for passengers, who usually number the rated capacity of one of the small cars and more, that they are forced to sit more or less on one anothers' laps, or on the floor surrounded by a welter of brown legs. Reserve is impossible in such circumstances. The folksiness is emphasized by the fact one removes his shoes, belches, yawns, scratches, or fit full length on the floor, as the spirit moves. So everyone begins talking to those with whom ht has been thrown into such intimate circumstances. Since they all talk at once, and since they must talk above the noise of the train, coming in through the open windows along with dusty blasts of hot air, (it may be only early March but the tempera- ature is close to 100), the result is quite and uproar. But the Indians, they seem to love it. What I have been describing, of course, applies especially to the third class cars in which most of the Indians, from economic necessity, art forced to travel. The accommodations offered are nothing but wooden benches. Those who find the benches already crowded sit on the floor. The late-late comers stand in the entryways. In second class the benches are lightly upholstered and there is somewhat less confusion and more breathing space. First class, relatively, is de luxe. The cars are divided into compartments with facing seats, each long enough for three passengers and elbow room. Above each seat is a sort of a shelf that serves on night journeys as an upper berth. I, a soft American, traveled first class on the Bombay-Nagpur Express. I had three compartment companions. One was a man with a bushy mustache who immediately climbed to one of the upper shelves and slept until it was time for him to get off. The second was a studious youth who immersed himself in a book except, at intervals, to close the window I had opened shortly before. The third was a short, stout, elderly woman in a summer-weight sari which showed legs that best would have been kept a family secret. First she removed her sandals, lay down, pulled over her a blanket she had taken from her reticule, and took a nap. Later she awakened, crossed her legs under her on the seat and stared fixedly at the opposite wall. She didn't look so much like a Buddha as a fat, little female owl.
