''iH'; 1 ' 3! OTTAWA HERALD Fl|t fa* Editorials Friday, March 15, 1963 Wright Had A Point Some weeks ago, C. O. Wright, executive secretary of the Kansas State Teachers Association got in trouble by airing in an eastern city some of the troubles with the Kansas school system. Among other things, Wright said "Kansas has one of the most backward school systems in the country." He put a lot of the blame for this on the Kansas Legislature. For being outspoken, Wright was ripped up by the press, called on the carpet by his own association and received the odious distinction of being the first private citizen in the history of Kansas to be censured by the Kansas Legislature. Yesterday this same Legislature which howled so loudly at his airing of Kansas school problems took action on a school unification bill. The bill passed the house. It must be remembered that the Legislature two years ago acted on a uni- This And That by jph fication bill, got the state stirred up, only to have the bill declared unconstitutional. The new bill, yet to gain Senate approval, is like the TV hair shampoo commercial, "thin and watery." It permits a district teaching one through 12 grades to have a minimum of 400 students and a valuation of only $2 million. It gives counties until July of 1966 to work out unified plans. And even at that, there is nothing mandatory about coming up with a plan. About all the bill requires is that each county set up a planning board which will conduct hearings, study the school problem and submit some kind of a plan to the voters who can accept or reject it. If voters reject it, no telling what will happen. Since his censure by the Legislature, Wright has gone to great lengths to prove he was right. He need not have bothered. The Kansas Legislature by its actions proved his point. Dark Side Of Bombay JPH BOMBAY — One could spend several days in Bombay and depart with the idea that this is a gay, cosmopolitan, Europeanized city with just enough atmosphere of India to make it fascinating. He would find smart restaurants with unusually fine menus, cultivated and sophisticated people, exclusive shops, air-conditioned hotels with the fittings to which he is accustomed. He would see enough traffic jams to convince him that Bombay is prosperous and modern. He could admire the solidly built government buildings erected by the British, which with Mogul architecture, are ugly enough to be appealing. He could stroll along the sea wall at the entrance to the harbor. Lunch in the refined Cricket Club. Inspect the new, modernistic office buildings. Drive around the long, gentle curve of Marcine Drive at the edge of the fine sand beach. Poke about Malabar Hill where the best homes and apartments arc located. Dine at the elaborate, new resort hotel on the sea near the airport. And he would have a wonderful time, particularly were he fortunate enough to have a few Indian friends to show him the right places to go. He would not have seen Bombay, however, but only its impressive facade. Back from the glitter of the areas close to the sea he would have to go to discover the real city. When he found it, if he had the normal amount of sympathy, he would be depressed by it. Depressed even more by the people than by their surroundings. There are so many of them. There is not enough food for them. Not enough jobs. When they do find temporary work as common laborers, the pay is pitiful, and living costs in Bombay, by Indian standards, are high. They have no homes. Their possessions are on their backs. They don't live; they exist. And they bring a horrifying number oi children into the world to make sure such an existence will continue for at least another generation. On the worst sides of Bombay the streets are narrow and dirty. They are lined with scabrous looking tenement buildings with small shops on the ground floor. They swarm with people. At intervals there are "jugghis' —croweded together collections of miserable shacks, thrown up on what were areas of open ground, while the authorities were not looking. The authorities desperately would like to do something about these squalid slums, but they are overpowered by the numbers. Were the present ones to be razed, new jugghis would be flung together someplace else, almost overnight. These hordes on the back streets wear little more than rags, yet, almost miraculously, most of them are reasonably clean. They are the legions of the miserable, and you can see it in their eyes. From this anonymous mass, however, the most unfortunate of all stand out. Beggars, most of them deformed in one way or another. Children with bloated stomachs. Human pack and draft animals, sweating their loads slowly along the way, since it is as hot in Bombay in March as it is in Kansas in August. Cripples hobbling along with the aid of short poles. The spectacle of the wrong side of Bombay is even less cheerful at night. To say they sleep on the streets and sidewalks here is literal truth. Dozens, hundreds, perhaps even thousands do every night and have done so most of their lives. They huddle up beside walls. They provide a human floor for dark passageways. They lie full length across the sidewalk, with the sacking with which they have covered themselves looking exactly like shrouds. That is the dark side of Bombay. And India is powerless to do anything about it, probably for years to come. The basic problem of India is that there are too many Indians. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Eugene Mages, age 6, was ill with chickenpox. O.H.S. sophomores elected the following class officers: Bob Sink, president; Louise Alderman, vice president; Mary Gene Kelley, secretary; and Edwin Sheldon, treasurer. Chippewa School, 7 miles southwest of Ottawa, was closed because of scarlet fever. 50 YEARS AGO A road company presented "The Shepherd of the Hills," by Harold Bell Wright, at the Rohrbaugh Theater here. The troupe went from here to Lawrence. Newman Waring and daughter, Miss Amy Waring were planning to build a new eight-room house at 425 Locust. West 7th Street was opened to travel again after being closed for many weeks while the Santa Fe railway constructed a concrete waterway under the railroad tracks. Prayer For Today You are in Christ Jesus by God's act, for God has made him our wisdom; he is our righteousness; in him we are consecrated and set free. (I Corinthians 1:30, NEB.) PRAYER: Our Father, we lift our hearts to Thee with gratitude for all Thy blessings. We thank Thee for gifts material and spiritual. Save us from false choices and enable us to find in Thee the abundant life and joy and peace which Thou dost give us, through Christ our Lord. Amen. Tonight's TV Highlights This is the night to "Singalong with Mitch," and it sounds like a good program. Mitch will play an English horn solo, and there'll be the usual soloing by Leslie Uggams, Gloria Lambert and others. Channel 4, 7:30. Earlier the "Rawhide" program will offer "The Incident of the Pale Rider." Rowdy gets a bit shook up when he meets a rider who is the exact image of a fella he's pretty sure he killed — in self-defense of course, because Rowdy isn't the sort of a fella who would kill someone just for the heck of it. Channels 5 and 13, 6:30. Late movies include "For Whom the Bell Tolls," a 1043 film of the Hemingway story, starring Gajy Cooper arid Ingrid Berg- Laff-A-Day WEATHER BURTAU "No, no, you WET your finger first."

JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: What are the symptoms of gout? what causes it and what can be done?— R.M. In a broad sense, gout is a form of arthritis, and affliction of the joints. It usually affects one joint, and the classic example is the base of the big toe. The joint becomes red, swollen and about a. tender as can be imagined. But while the toe is the favorite target of gout, a wrist, 'elbow, spine or hip can also be affected. If only one joint is afflicted, gout should be considered as a possibility. There's really quite a bit of it around. Gout supposedly used to be the penalty of living things up too much. Cartoonists like to draw pictures of the plump and grumpy old aristocrt with his bandaged toe propped on a pillow. Actually gout isn't necessarily so. If results from a disorder in the way the body handles uric acid, and deposits of urates accumulate (they can be found in tissues around the ears, the joints and under the skin, too.) The disease tends to run in families and can attack people who have never been indulgent in eating and drinking. Attacks can come without warning, even during sleep. They can be triggered by all sorts of things, including overindulgence in rich food and drink. But what triggers an attack isn't the basic cause. Other triggers can be an injury, strain, or even the use of some medicines when injected, liver extract being one. The attack can be excruciatingly painful. Eventually (maybe days, sometimes weeks) it ends, but another is likely to occur unless something can be done to stall it off. Colchicine, long known as a treatment, is often used in small amounts to prevent recurrence, a much newer drug, benemid, also is being used with excellent results. Died, once considered of great importance, now is given much less emphasis, but restriction of foods with high purine content — notably vegetables of the bean and pea family, and gland meats, such as liver, sweetbreads, kidney, etc. — is helpful. There are many patients who, following orders carefully, have been getting along for years without new attacks. Incidentally, men are about 20 times as likely to have gout as women, but women are by no means immune to it. Dear Dr. Molner: Will drinking ice cold liquids injure a person's health or his heart?—Mrs. M.S. Cold liquids aren't necessarily harmful. Rather, it's a matter of personal tolerance. If cold drinks cause you discomfort, discontinue them. Otherwise do as yoi prefer. Note to Mrs. C.B.: In case of 'infantile uterus," one that did not develop to usual adult size, I know of nothing that will help. I suggest that you think of adopting a child, since fertility is uncertain in this instance. Acne is one of the most terrible problems of growing up. If you are afflicted with this aggravation, or if you have children who are, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, III, for a copy of his helpful and comforting booklet, Acne— The Teenage Problem. Please enclose a long self-addressed, stamped envelope, and 20 cents in coin to cover handling. Dear Dr. Molner: Is it common for a young man of 23 to have to urinate every 30 or 40 minutes? I have been that way for four months, ever since I accepted a small beer in a sleazy bar. Does holding in the urine strengthen the blad- der?-W.F.N. This problem is decidedly not common at your age, and I suspect either a urinary tract infection or diabetes (either diabetes ellitus, meaning excess sugar, or diabetes insipidus, a considerably coincidence I suggest that you have • gar.) I doubt that the small beer, drunk in any kind of a bar, had anything to do with it. That's prob- urinalysis, plus whatever further tests may then be indicated, to find out what is wrong. Sometimes a bladder, if undersized, may be stretched by deliberately trying to hold in the urine as long as possible, but that applies only to healthy individuals. It cannot overcome a disease condition, and I strongly suspect in this case that something is distinctly wrong and needs treatment. Fat! My leaflet, "The Lost Secret of Reducing," tells how to get rid of it the easy way. For your copy write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents hi coin to cover cost of handling.
