OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, March 13, 1963 Editorials The Shame Of The Jobless A note of scorn was apparent in the President's manpower report to Congress. Claiming we should be "ashamed" to tolerate 6 per cent unemployment in a nation as rich as the United States, the President tried to stir Congress into action. Obviously, this action is adopting his program. Before Congress reacts to this scorn, it should investigate just what is unemployment. Figures often can be misleading. That 6 per cent unemployment the President speaks of is all-inclusive. It includes wives who were once employed and would again be in the working force if the right job were available. It includes a number of young persons who are just out of or who have quit school. It includes those who can't hold jobs because of various personal problems. This And That by jph It includes those who are hardly employable. It includes those who have been displaced by machines. And worst of all, it includes those who have become so used to the handouts of our modern society that they prefer to draw unemployment checks to working. In a nation constantly striving toward automation and greater productivity, unemployment is sure to be like the common cold. We will have it with us always, worse some times of the year than others. But before Congress is derided into helter-skelter action it can be hoped it will remember that when the costs go up, so do taxes. Higher taxes on business in turn force business to look to ways to reduce nayrolls. thus compl'caHnfr the problem the President says we should be ashamed of. To Your Good Health Simple To Sleep Well Dr. Molner Where The Past Lives On JPH NASIK — This city has a population of 1% lakhs, as the Indians invariably put it. That's 150,000. Glancing at its business center a westerner is inclined to say that it couldn't have one- fourth that many people. After fighting his way through the narrow streets across Nasik, he is satisfied that there have been considerably more than 1% lakhs of people barring his way. There is really not much to say about Nasik. Essentially it is the center for an agricultural area of some importance by Indian standards. The area has been extended and enriched by two or three dams which have been constructed since independence. There is an army post nearby and a little new industry. On the outskirts there is a modest amount of new public housing. Nasik is on the headwaters of the Godavari River, which, next to the Ganges, is India's most religiously venerated stream. It has an unusual number of Hindu temples of great beauty, although they are not to be compared either in size or in intricacy of carvings with those of the south. It is the scene of many small Hindu pilgrimages through the year. But Nasik's sights are not sufficiently eye-catching to attract the foreign tourist, and there would be no place for him to stay if he came. The British put little of their impress on it. There is little tangible evidence of progress through the development programs of independent India. So Nasik remains much as it long has been. Another not too important small Indian city. A place where there are no rich, where the affluent have far less in a material way than a skilled worker at home enjoys, and where the very poor lead such meat: lives as to be almost indescribable. Nasik is not old; it is ageless. It is weather-beaten, but still strong in its traditional pattern. It is a community in which Old India has rather successfully withstood the onslaughts of the 20th century. Symbolically, at the entrance to the city in the middle of the not too wide roadway stands a large road roller, it's smaller front roller removed and lying to one side, further blocking the traffic- way. It appears to have been there for days, waiting for repairs that will arrive — who can say? Meanwhile the endless teams of bullocks plod past, pulling their great two-wheeled carts on either side. Fighting for passage down the principal streets, which measure no more than 24 feet from shop- front to shopfront, there are an unpleasant number of trucks, a few tiny, privately - owned cars of considerable age, and a hazardous number of bicycles. But still predominating are the bullock carts again, children playing about, unmindful of the traffic, porters with heavy loads carried on their heads, teams of men tugging along heavily loaded freight carts, pedestrians using the street •s though U were a sidewalk, peasants with their tiny stock of fruit or vegetables spread out on the edge of the way, idly roaming sacred cows, women with large brass water jars balanced on their heads, (They are status symbols. To carry an earthenware jar is to expose one's mean estate), and the gay litle pony carts with their bells which here still serve as taxis. To suggest a department store or a supermarket, in Nasik is to laugh. Few local residents could follow you if you described one, so remote are such things from their experience. Here all business is conducted in open-front shops measuring little more than 15 feet square and standing far enough above the roadway so that the cross- legged merchant can look his customers in the eye. Jewelry in one. Cloth merchant next A small stock of seeds and grains for planting. Another with those seeds and such for the main items in th. Hindu vegetarian diet. An artisan working on a gold ornament. Two men hammering brass water jars into shape. A small stock of drugs. A tobacconist with a fast moving stock of the native Charminar cigarettes, an excellent smoke at about a nickel for a package of 10. A few canned goods in this one, but not many, because most food is sold fresh in the open market. A chemist whose stock contains some American brand name drugs. That, I hope, is a verbal taste of what Nasik is like. Prayer For Today Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. (Acts 16.31.) PRAYER: We thank Thee, 0 God, for our gracious Savior, Jesus Christ. No matter how dark th« world or how great our troubles, we know He is always near, ready to hear and ready to help. Keep bright our hope in Thee today, tomorrow, and forever. In Thy mercy hear our prayer offered in our blessed Savior's name. Amen. By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Note to editor: This is the last of three articles on insomnia.—The Editor.) There are some absurdly simple things about going to sleep that just don't occur to us until they are pointed out. One is being sure you are ready for bed. Whether it's cleaning your teeth, opening the window, putting the cat out, changing the thermostat or setting the alarm, get it done first. Crawling into bed and then having to get up to do some of these small chores is a pretty sure way of becoming wide awake. Another trick is to relax deliberately. This is something you've doubtless heard about— but have you tried it? Really tried it for a few nights in a row? Practice paying orderly attention to each part of the body. Close your eyes. Relax your toes, feet, legs, abdomen, arms, shoulders, even muscles of the face. It can be done. A wise swimming coach had members of his team relax at pool-side before a meet to get rid of their tensions. (He was also shrewd enough to pick a section of floor under which ran some heating; pipes. The warmth helped.) Heat is relaxing, whether a warm bath or shower, or a hoi water bcttle. I don't .-.-,-, rr: , r -- • pi-,o_ trie heating pads for this particular use because they have to be turned off — and you want to drop off to sleep and not have anything to do, nothing nagging at your mind. Some people have even found that a small comforter or even a woolly scarf wrapped around the neck seems to help a lot. Your emotions are enormously important but I deliberately haven't stressed this for fear of having somebody think that "Dr. Molner claims it's all in your head." If you let yourself fret it's a hard habit to break, but nevertheless it can be accomplished. Don't stew and fret at bedtime about what went wrong during the day. Don't worry about tomorrow. If you haven't already made your plans for the next day, this is no time to begin. Maybe you should have planned earlier. But if you haven't, a good night's sleep will let your brain do twice as much planning in half the time in the morning. It's best to get into the habit of finishing everything that needs to be done at night, hen drinking a glass of warm milk or whatever, (but steer clear of coffee or tea) and making that a signal that one day's chores are finished. It's time to relax. Books and reading? Fine, if you have something placid and unexciting — even perhaps somewhat "heavy" or even boring. But if you are the keyed- up type anyway, don't make the mistake of expecting exciting fiction to put you to sleep. If you must willy-nilly "finish a chapter," you're liable to force yourself to stay awake just long enough to start another. And another. Finally, if this isn't too elementary, give this a thought. People who are physically active normally sleep longer (and more easily) than others. Do you really get a brisk lot of exercise every day? And don't, don't think you can have a semi- sleepless night and then make up for it by taking things easy the next morning, having an afternoon nap, and dozing awhile in the evening. Do that, and you can be sure that you won't be in prime condition to drop promptly off to sleep at bedtime. Learn to get tired! Dear Dr. Molner: What is meant by a "coin lesion"?-A.V. A lesion (injury or lump or scar or the like) seen on a chest X-ray plate, and so named because it looks something like a coin. It may or may not be benign, but should be watched carefully fov change in size. Note to Mrs. F.S.; Yes, surgical removal of varicose veins improves the appearance as well as the circulation. Hemorrhoids can be cured! If troubled with fissures, fistulas, itching and other rectal problems, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., requesting a copy of the booklet, "The Real Cure For Hemorrhoids," enclosing a long, self--addressed, stampeu envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover printing and handling.

"I know I don't have to testify against my husband, but I may never get another chance." Compromise WUBill On Floor TOPEKA (AP)-A compromise Wichita University bill reached the House floor Tuesday night. Leaders said it probably will come up for debate and passage before the end of the week. If it clears the House it will go back to the Senate for consideration of House amendments. The House Ways and Means Committee, which had been split about evenly for and against inclusion of Wichita U. in the state system as a university, came up with a 15-3 vote in favor of the compromise amendments. 0 n a voice vote to recommend the new version, not a dissenting voice was heard. The bill provides that Wichita shall be brought into the state system under the Board of Regents as a state university. But it also provides that the Wichita school shall be an "associate" of the University of Kansas. The bill spells out that Wichita shall come into the state system as it is now constituted. It provides the university will be entitled to carry on, under present procedures, all academic programs now specified within its published catalog and graduate julletin. The school would submit its annual budget to the chancellor of the University of Kansas. He would in turn forward it with comments and recommendations to the board whenever it is necessary to select a new president for the Wichita school. Ottawa Herald IM-1M •.
