OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, March 19, 1963 Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-18, CBS Channel 9, ABO Editorial* Mac Better Be Right It has more or less become an accepted procedure in the public business to take bids for government work, then award contracts to the lowest responsible bidder. A variance from this practice has placed one of America's most powerful public servants on the hot seat. He is Secretary of Defense Robert 8. McNamara. For several years McNamara has believed this country needs a tactical fighter plane which lands and takes off slowly and also is capable of flying twice the speed of sound. The plane is referred to as the TFE. When the project was launched early in his administration, McNamara insisted that such a plane could be standardized and could serve both Air Force and Navy. To get this point across he had to battle generals and admirals. He asked major aircraft producers to study his concept and come up with a design. A number of firms did. Several weeks ago when contract stages neared, only two firms were in the running, General Dynamics and Boeing. McNamara and aides accepted the General Dynamics bid. It could ultimately cost the taxpayers $7 billion. It wasn't This And That by jph this cost that caused the stir, it was the fact that the Dynamics bid was about $400 million higher than the Boeing bid. When word of this got out, investigating senators demanded an explanation. The project which could mean eventual construction of 1,700 fighter planes could create about 20,000 jobs for the winning contractor. So it is easy to see that those areas, including Kansas, which have Boeing plants were tremendously interested in the outcome of the bidding. Since the low bidder, Boeing, hasn't received the contract, politicians have been scurrying around looking for the bug under the chip. McNamara explained the Defense Department's position with characteristic abruptness. The Boeing bid, he said, was inferior. It wasn't for one plane as requested, he said, it was for two different aircraft, one for the Navy and one for the Air Force, thus violating the secretary's demand for a standardized fighter. It probably came as a shock to a firm as large as Boeing to be told its work was inferior. Only time will tell whether McNamara has made the right decision. We can only hope, though, that he has. So much rides on it. Seven billion and the air defense of the nation. Frantic Day Of Rest JPH RAJKOT — Yesterday was my day of rest. It- was so indicated on my schedule. It proved to bt a restless one that covered a full 28 hours. It began really the night before, when I was startled out of that first deep sleep, into which it is so difficult to return, by a banging on my bedroom door. It was the two local journalists who were to be my companions in resting. Could I be ready at six the next morn- big, two hours earlier than originally planned? I could. As a matter of fact, I was, with half an hour to spare. This resulted from the boy's bringing in my coffee 30 minutes before I had ordered it My escorts arrived at 20 minutes past the appointed hour. They had brought friends, moreover, so there were five of us to squeeze into a tiny, Indian-built Fiat. By inhaling simultaneously and slamming the doors, we made it. We started off into the darkness and soon were jolting along (even the best Indian roads are roughly surfaced) the 14-foot main highway. It was refreshingly cool, and dawn was just beginning to break. Before long it was light enough to reveal the typical Indian landscape. A seemingly endless plain, broken by occasional, small, cultivated fields and orosion-made gullies. It is lightly dotted with low trees and human figures striding along toward no visible destination. It is sere and forlorn in this, the dry, season. The Indian landscape is one that conveys the feeling of lonesomeness. Since the Indian roads have their built-in speed limits, it took us nearly two hours to cover the 70 miles to Junagadh. There, over coffee, we dawdled away the two hours we had saved by our earlier departure and somewhat more. Finally the others thought it had become hot enough lac sight-seeing, so off in the now blazing sun we went. Junagadh does have its sights. A large and lovely mosque. The Prince's palace and the smaller palaces surrounding, in each of which he maintained one of his wives. A mannerly fortress in the city. A far larger and older one on a hill just outside. The latter has both outer walls and inner ramparts, and a 10-mile tunnel through which the besieged inmates could be provisioned, without the enemy's being any the wiser. It is dominated by the remains of a tall structure in Moorish- Gothic style which, over the past 800 years, respectively has been palace, Hindu temple, Muslim mosque, Hindu temple again, and now a tourist attraction. Just inside the blackened stone outer walls of the fortress is a well 60 feet in diameter and at least 300 feet deep that contained the water supply. One may still walk down the many steps to the bottom; but it is much more practical to take a peek down from the open top. Legend has it that on one occasion the Muslim garrison of the moment, just before surrendering, killed a cow and let its blood flow into the well's water. The legend continues that the victorious Hindu warriors died of thirst rather than put to their lips a liquid that did such outrage to their dietary principles. Anyhow, with sights seen, we repaired to the government guest house for luncheon and a rest. Departure for Gir Forest, a visit to which was the reason for this outing, would be no later than three. I tried to nap, but unsuccessfully. My traveling companions, who were in the same dormitory room, were talking so animatedly to one another in Gugarati. At 2:45 I slipped back into my clothes. As I was doing so, the others plumped on their cots and at once fell into a sound sleep. They awakened at four and suggested coffee. I suggested Gir Forest so we would be sure to be there by sunset, which if the time advised. They looked embarrassed. Tflhey should have. "Reluctantly they admitted that they had ordered a car which had appeared at one o'clock. But it had broken down as it drew up to the en- trance and had to be towed away. A local friend of theirs had been looking for a substitue, but it was not easy, because taxis were scarce and this is the favorite wedding season for Hindus. Indeed it wasn't. It was not until 6:30 that a car appeared. It was about a 1945 model which could have been a Pontiac, if it wasn't a Buick. The road to Gir Forest must be traveled to be believed. It is dirt, narrow, dusty, and twists with the sharpness and frequency to arouse the admiration of a pretzel-bender. It winds through a rocky wasteland. It goes sharply up and down to cross guillies, some of which have washed down by as much as 100 feet. It has bumps to challenge the strongest springs. In spots it is so poor ly defined that its narrow limits are lined with stones painted white so that drivers will not miss a sharp turn and go erasing off into the nowhere. It is no more than 40 miles from Junagadh to Gir Forest. The trip took us something more than two hours. This, though, included a pause in a village for some coffee to get the dust out of our throats at least. Among other things, the village boasts one tractor and one camel. I saw them both as they were coming belatedly in from work. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO H. M. Nusbaum of Centropolis was quite ill. Kenneth Andrews leased a service station at North Main and Wilson Streets. • Miss Maxine Record, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Record, of 841 S. Cherry, underwent an emergency appendix operation. 50 YEARS AGO Tom Washburn returned to Manhattan where he was a student at Kansas State Agricultural College after a visit here with his father, George P. Washburn. Mrs. George Weinheimer went to Wellsville, called by the serious illness of an uncle, Nathaniel Akers. The new concrete block building of the Star Laundry, on North Main, was nearing completion. Prayer For Today I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. (Luke 5:32.) > PRAYER: 0 God, our sins are mightier than we are. We cannot handle them by ourselves. We are grateful that Thou hast provided a way for our forgiveness. Help us this moment to sense the presence of the Christ, the firend o! sinners, and give us the blessed assurance ol forgiveness through him. In His name we pray. Amen.

JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: My husband and I are great lovers of ice cream. In summer we eat approximately two gallons a week. Friends have told me that a great deal of ice cram can cause too much cholesterol in the blood, thereby resulting in heart attacks. What is your opinionT-Mrs. I.M.H. Personally I think that the cholesterol furor has gotten some, what out of hand. However, the evidence seems to be valid that fatty substances (cholesterol is one) are found in the plaques (or gloppy deposits) which form on or in the linings of our arteries. Over the years, these deposits gradually increase, faster in some of us, slower in others. This is called atherosclerosis, or thickening, and hence partial obstructing, of the arteries. I wouldn't try to argue mat the problem doesn't have some bearing on heart attacks. It builda up a condition in which some portion of the coronary (heart) arteries can more, easily become clogged and cause a heart attack. But now let's look at the problem another way. The quantity of fats we eat can influence the amount deposited in the arteries — less the amount we burn up in energy. Arctic explorers have lived for long periods on mostly seal meat and blubber, which are high in fats. But the men burned up much of it in exercise and in keeping their bodies warm. There wasn't much left to set- tie in the arteries. Therefore I can't see much point in being top concerned over cholesterol (or other fats) in the diet if we are doing some of the other important things, like getting regular exercise. The character who sits in an easy chair and pontificates on "cholesterol," and gets no exercise and is fat as a pig, doesn't swing much influence with me. He's getting too much fat, re- gardless of how he tinkers with the kind of food he eats. •' ;, ...'; ' .•'• : : - •' ;•/ ••. ;But the fellow who gets some exercise, follows a few other simple.rules of health, and keeps his weight within fair limits - well, I doubt if he has much need to worry about what particular kind of fat he consumes. So now let's get back to eating ice cream. Your two gallons a week, for two people, translates into a pint of milk a day for each of you— more or less, but that's close enough. In addition, if you eat lots of pork chops, fried potatoes, thickly-spread butter, bacon for breakfast, etc., you are certainly getting too much cholesterol - producing materials and you'll probably pay for it, if not with a heart attack, then in some other way. On the other hand, if the rest of your diet is sensible, and you use up sufficient calories (from fat and all of your food), I can't see anything to complain about. How do you know whether you're too high or too low? I'd say the bathroom scales will give you a good answer. If you are overweight, cut down 'on the ice cream — and other things. If you are slim, trim and active, go ahead the way you are. To my way of thinking, the bathroom scales are more important than a lot of learned "chatter" on cholesterol. Dear Dr. Molner: What is the proper weight for a woman 51 years old, five feet, 3 inches tall? - Mrs. R.M.L. Depending on natural build (light or heavy bone structure) somewhere between 113 and 135. Note to Mrs. D. M. L.: Those small blue veins, or "spider veins," are being successfully removed by some surgeons using an electric needle to obliterate them. It's a laborious process, but it works. Shingles can be a painful disease! To receive a copy of my pamphlet, "The Facts About SlJngles," write Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 10 cents in coin to cover handling.

The CBS program opened with Godfrey crooning a love song to a basset hound, which properly looked embarrassed and unhappy about such human nonsense. It concluded with a production number which was a paean to "the $2* window" and horse-racing. In between, we saw a series of still photographs showing Godfrey with some animals in the private zoo on his Virginia farm and a very long performance of trained sealions and porpoises at a Pacific Coast amusement park. Not all the animals were alive. Talented Shari Lewis worked amusingly with her little puppet, Lamb Chop. Mel Blanc provided viewer friends. Channels 5 and 13 at 9.

The program floated all over the place and lacked the sharpness of Focus and spirited pace which distinguished Godfrey's other special earlier this season. Also, it had a tendency to be cute and so, alas, did Godfrey. CBS has been bragging that it las its fall schedule locked in at an unprecedented early date—but the network obviously hasn't thrown away the key. At the moment, it looks as though the schedule is being unlocked—to remove "The Real McCoys" after all these seasons. It all depends on whether CBS can make a deal to get "Car 54" for a ride on a new channel next season. The substitution of the comedy- cops series would make for more diversified programming, anyway. As things now stand, "The Real McCoys" would be followed on Wednesday nights by "Beverly Hillbillies," which makes for a pretty stiff dose of country-style humor.
