OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, March 14, 1963 Editorials Hooray For A New Face The announcement that property owners in a. single block in this city's business district are discussing a new face for the area, is exciting. It should toe a topic of interest for the entire business community. Already one store in the 200 block on Main has put on a ne-w front. Another is in the process. Rehabilitation of the rest on the west side of the street would make that block most attractive in the business area. It also could, form a pattern for the rest of the district. In the past, individual businesses and property o-wners have remodeled on their own, to suit their own tastes. Doing it This And That by jph in concert with a consistent type of architecture and in harmonizing colors would enhance the appearance of the block for more than individual changes. The past few decades there has been little incentive to remodel in view of frequent flooding. But with that danger to be under control, money spent on ren- novations such as those envisioned wouldn't be money down the drain. The local improvement committee which is pushing the idea deserves enthusiastic support. Here could be the start of a project that could sweep the town and attract the notice of the entire Midwest. Golfing Not What It Was JPH NASIK — Go almost any place in India and vanishing traces may be found of the British raj. Nasik is no exception. Here the memorial is a golf course. Or, more accurately, what used to be one. It is easy to imagine what it must have been when the Duke of Windsor was a boy. Eighteen full holes. Sparkling green at the end of the wel season. I can see the Deputy Commissioner and his t hr e e guests making their leisurely way along, each with one native boy to hold an umbrella over him to ward off the sun, a second to carry his clubs, and a third to locate the hard-driven ball. And the Pukka Sahib Colonel from the post a few miles away with three of his officers playing a more active game. But gone is the glory of the Empire. The course today is a sere and bare expanse decorated only with a few scraggly trees and the high, gray walls of an old Muslim cemetery. It is just a great open space across •which the Indians must inconveniently walk on the •way from where they are to where they must go. A barren place on which old men promenade, small herds of goats graze, dogs gambol, and women with brass water jars balanced on their heads stride across. The clubhouse, however, still stands. It looks a little shaky from 20 years of lack of maintenance, but it still stands. The tennis court backstops have almost weathered away, but the driveway is still carefully swept each morning by a man with a bunch of twigs for a broom; and the few, carefully watered, small flower beds supply a cheerful if incongruous note. The establishment, now government owned, is currently known as the Golf Club Bungalow. It is Nasik's Waldorf - Astoria. It has three suites, the other two being given a badly needed renovation. Government officials have first call on them and have an inattentive, cheerless staff, who have fox-gotten most of their British training, to cater to their wishes. When no officials are passing through, visitors with proper connections can occupy them. I must have the right connections. In any event, I occupied the Bungalow last night in solitary splendor. Suite Three, into which the chokidar ceremoniously ushered me, is a museum piece. The parlor is really a glassed in verandah on the second floor, To Your Good Health fitted with heavy Victorian chairs, upholstered in bilious green. The bedroom is dominated by two barracks-type narrow beds with two-inch mattresses, hard one-inch pillows, and mosquito nets draped overhead. Tie bath is sectionalized. There is a lavatory in one corner from which comes a thin stream of cold water. Opposite is a tiled square equipped with a bucket of water and a brass cup. One fills the cup from the bucket, pours the cold water over himself, and shivers. The WC is of the vintage type still found occasionally in remote French inns. A depressed porcelain rectangle in the tile floor, with a drain at one end and two raised footrests at the other. Above to one side is a pull- chain tank for flushing. I looked carefully around. No, there wasn't any. I was glad I had some Kleenex with me. I dined simply. A dishwatery soup. An over- baked chicken which must have dieted principally on old golf balls it had scratched up. Limp French fries. Boiled cauliflower. The coffee, however, was refreshingly strong. It had turned bracingly cool by the time I had finished. Nasik has an elevation of nearly 2,000 feet. It must have dropped to around 55 by morning. After the heat of the day, it made one feel like going to bed. The night proved to be a longish one. Too late I realized that the only covering available was a mattress cover on each bed and that at the Golf Club Bungalow the guest is supposed to bring his own blankets. I used the cover from the opposite bed as a top sheet. My bathrobe also helped. Some. Not enough, though, to keep me from getting a little nippy around the toes before morning. It should have been a still night out there in the middle of the former golf course. It wasn't. There were several resident mongrels who took turns going out to bark at jackals. There was a succession of mosquitoes to buzz my ears. Too late I remembered to drop the netting. There were a couple of worse bites suffered later. From the looks of the welts, fleas. There was a lovelorn jackass, somewhere off in the distance, to' bray at intervals his unrequited passion. There was the occasional rumble of a truck passing on the main road. Then, just after dawn, there was the cheerful, off-key singing of the man who swept clean the driveway with a bundle of twigs. But don't get the idea I am complaining. Should you ever happen to find yourself in Nasik, India, choose the Golf Club Bungalow. If you can get in. But don't forget your bedding.

JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Moiner: I am a 27-year-old mother and I have pernicious anemia. The doctor says there is no cure, only treatment which consists of Vitamin B12 every two or three weeks. I feel a lot better but I lose energy easily. Is there any way I can fight this problem without having "shots" the rest of my life?—Mrs. K.V. Injection of Vitamin B12 every two or three weeks is the standard treatment for pernicious anemia. You might feel much better about things if you knew the history of the disease and its treatment. Within my lifetime (and very little more than yours) this disease has changed from one which was usually quickly fatal to one which can be kept under control with great sureness Then came the discovery that large quantities of liver would control pernicious anemia. This was at godsend. Patients, otherwise marked for death, -were delighted to eat a pound of liver a day — and live. It was assumed that there must be something in liver which accomplished this, but years were required to find out. After liver came liver extracts, and from them finally Vitamin B12 which, it turns out, is the secret of controlling pernicious anemia. Having one injection every two or three weeks is far simpler, you must agree, than forcing yourself to eat a pound of liver every day. So instead of rebelling against the shots, reflect on how much luckier you are than patients who had the same disease only a few decades ago. There is no way to "fight" prenicious anemia except with these substantial doses of B12. Dear Dr. Moiner: I wake up at night with throat so dry I can hardly breathe. What causes this and what can I do?—JOHN E. Vint, sir. I'd guou that you sleep with your mouth open, but don't realize it. Maybe a simple chin strap will help. Second, how dry is your house? Do you have humidifier tanks or evapora- tivi pans? They would help overcome the dryness. Auld Lang Syne J5 YEARS AGO Clarence Darrow, noted attorney, died at his home in Chicago at the age of 80. It was announced that between 225 and 250 persons were expected at the annual banquet of the Franklin County Young Democrats, to be held at the Nelson Hotel. County Attorney John B. Pierson was to be the toastmaster. Ernest Thompson caught a 4-pound channel catfish. 50 YEARS AGO Harold Kennedy went to Norwood to spend Sunday with friends. The R. E. Page home, 714 Oak, was being wired for electric service. H. B. Kiler purchased a new Cadillac 7-passenger touring car from the John Nelson k Son agency. The automobile had all of the new improvements, including electric lights and electric self-starter. Prayer For Today God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.
