OTTAWA HERALD Page Ten Thursday, March 21, 1963 Editorials Expensive Latin Wall From San Jose in Costa Rica have come a lot of high sounding words. It is there that President Kennedy has been meeting with chiefs of six Central American nations. t«oftiest words have come from our President, and they pertain to the hemisphere's major problem, Cuba. As Kennedy put it, around Cuba we must build "a wall of dedicated men determined to protect their freedom and their sovereignty." There is considerable concern that Communism will be exported from the Russian stronghold of Cuba. To meet this threat the nations of Central America, Cuba's closest neighbors, are banding .together with the United States. There is no doubt that this Communist threat is real. But the greatest threat is not Communism but poverty. In Central America as well, as in most nations of South American, the terrible poverty of millions is the greatest problem. A few people are very rich. Most of the rest are very poor. Unlike this country there is no middle class. Unless the very rich in the lands to the south are made to realize they must give some of their wealth to the poor or lose all, there This And That by jph is little hope of warding off the Communist threat. After all when the primary concern is the next meal and not personal freedoms, the day goes to the one who promises and delivers something to fill the stomach. Naturally the rich who control the governments are reluctant to give up even parts of their wealth. They would like for this country to foot the bill. This is the reason that the Central American nations wish to see the establishment of a Central American integration bank to disperse funds to meet the needs of these countries. And we are being asked to stock this bank with something around $200 million. An outright grant of this money would not do the job. We must attach a number of strings to it, first of which is the requirement that those nations being helped foot part of the bill. Otherwise, American dollars would just be contributed for extending a system which now is fertile ground for communism. Anyway we look at it, more than just officials of this country must be dedicated to this wall around Cuba. It will be an expensive wall to build and maintain. The United States alone can't be expected to foot the bill. A Berth With 'Extras' JPH SHOLAPUR — The Indian Railways have some air-conditioned sleeping cars which provide all the amenities to which travelers on "wagon lits" in Europe are accustomed. Not many, though. None at «11 on the Bombay-Madras Mail. There are only two sleepers of any sort on the Mail, so obtaining a berth requires time, luck, or proper connections. A berth in one of the non-air- conditioned cars is literally that and nothing mere. The sleeping car ticket entitles one to the occupancy of a padded seat long enough to lie full length and wide enough to turn over without roll- injfonto the floor. One brings his own bedding or does without sleeping as best he can on the bench. Fortunately I had been forewarned. I knew that for BO cents one can rent from the railways a bedding roll for the night. It is a great, bulky, canvas-covered affair, weighing enough to make the little stotion porter stagger as he trots along with the roll balanced on his head I tagge d along after my porter down the long station platform to the sleeper. There was a chart fixed to it showing berth assignments. I found that I had drawn the end compartment; the one right over the wheels. But on the other hand I was to have on!" one stranger as a companion for the night. The uppers had not been sold. My things hoisted aboard, I surveyed my quarters. There were the two facing pairs of bare berths. A linoleum floor. Wood-paneled walls. Ceiling fans and lights almost bright enough to read by. A tiny door giving entrance to a cubicle containing a lavatory and one of those foot-rest toilets of the sort no westerner can easily adjust himself to. I turned the single tap. There was cold water. But there was something odd about the compartment, and finally the explanation came to me. The car was of the type that was last built prior to World War I. The compartment extended the full width of the car. There were no connecting corridor. Once the train was in motion, the occupants of the compartment were trapped, as if in a cell, until they had reached their destination. The prison illusion was heightened by the fact that the windows, as in all Indian trains, were crossed with steel bars. The Madras Mail took off exactly on schedule at 10, my compartment mate having arrived wilh a full two minutes to spare. He took u blanket out of his suitcase and blew up an air pillow before stretching out. I unwound my bedding roll I had received my 60 cents worth. It contained a thin mattress, a pillow, sheet, blanket, and towel. It also had some small special accessories of which I did not become aware until morning. Tired, I took off my coat and shoes, as etiquette calls for, lay down immediately and soon was asleep. Through the night I was semi : aware of frequent halts by the train and of a little itching here and there on my body. I did not awaken until it was almost time to get off. Then, when I took off my shirt to wash up, I discovered what the extras in my sleeping bag had been. Fleas. My back and legs were covered with welts. I'm afraid this left me in no proper mood, shortly after on the platform, to be met by a group of six journalists who threw an elaborate circle of flowers around my neck and ceremoniously welcomed me to Sholapur. Auld Lang Syne £5 YEARS AGO Walter Rose, C. D. Weilepp and Bert Newland went to Atchison to attend a spring Kiwanis conference. Miss Ruth Carr was holding a fashion show of hand-knitted garments. The Ogg Grocery, 330 S. Main, was burglarized. About $25 was taken from the cash register. 50 YEARS AGO Warren J. Sheldon and A. E. Frederick of the Ottawa Hardware went to Kansas City on business. D. W. Bowers of Centropolis was here for a visit with his brother, Attorney Ben Bowers, then returned to University of Kansas at Lawrence, where he was a student. A five-ton granite monument was ordered from Vincent Marble Works for the Estabrook lots in Hope Cemetery. Prayer For Today God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:17.) PRAYER: Heavenly Father, Thou art love. Help us to be possessed of love like Thine that it may be the governing force in our lives. In the name of Christ, who proclaimed Thy love and taught us to pray, "Our Father who art in heaven. Amen."

Tickeli al Round Corner Drug and Police Department Advance $1.50, Door $1.75, Child 50c (Amplcei Lawrence Fraternal Order of Police) Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I have an underdeveloped uterus. What does this mean? Is there any chance of my ever having children? I love them.—Mrs. D. The term means that the organ is smaller than average for an adult woman. "Infantile uterus" is also sometimes used as an apt description. There's a great deal we don't know about why some people develop differently, but this particular condition has been found in certain constitutional types: for instance, women with small breasts and thin musculature. As to your chances of becoming pregnant, I am through with predictions. If your menstrual pattern is reasonably normal and ovulation occurs, pregnancy is quite possible. On the other hand, if there is some glandular deficiency, fertility may be impaired. Nature has regulated things pretty well. Some women are meant to have children — and they do. And a mere doctor can't always outguess wise old Mother Nature. Or course, in cases in which ovaries or tubes have been removed or are not in healthy condition, a woman cannot became pregnant. It is physically impossibble. Many a woman with an undersized uterus has been told that she "couldn't have children," but when a healthy bundle of joy arrives, the. doctor's face has turned red. If the necessary physiological structures are present, and the woman's system is functioning properly, chances of pregnancy are good. And I sincerely wish you the best of good fortune. Dear Dr. Molner: X-rays showed I had an ulcer in the pyloric canal. After going on a strict diet I had more X-rays two months later, showing the ulcer had healed. It is possible for an ulcer to heal that soon? And why does the pain still re- main? My doctor says scars can cause as much pain as an ulcer. Would you explain?—Mrs. R.B. Yes, an ulcer can heal that soon, but the puckering of the scar can, in some cases, put strain on tender areas. There may be an element of spasm of the pylorus which can cause pain. Dear Dr. Molner: Recently a friend of mine began drinking and has continued for over two months. I doubt that he will live long enough to get cirrhosis of the liver. What alcohol content can the body tolerate at one time? He drinks beer every day until 5 o'clock, and then drinks two fifths of liquor in highball form before midnight. Your answer may help me convey to him the danger of drinking at this rate.— R.B. He must have worked up to this enormous amount of'alcohol over a period of time — perhaps unknown to you. If you can get him to see his problem you'll be doing him a favor indeed, because he is in grave danger. The amount of alcohol the body can tolerate varies somewhat with the individual and his size, but it is generally believed that the body can dispose of about an ounce an hour — not that it a safe or sensible to attempt that maximum. But quite aside from the toxic effects of alcohol, most problem drinkers don't eat well or regularly, and the lack of suitable food not only increases the risk of cirrhosis but aggravtes the pcisonous effect of alcohol on brain, nervous system, stomach and body in general. I hope you can help your friend. Dear Dr. Molner: How long do pinworm eggs survive if they cannot enter the boby?—Mrs. S. B. In cool, moist surroundings perhaps weeks; in dry, sunshiny weather, only a Couple of days. Are you bothered with ringing in the ears? If so, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., for the booklet, "Ear Noises — Their Causes and Cures," enclosing with your request 10 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. 5:15 6—Whlrlyblrds 5:30 4—Dragnet 9—Rebel 13—Forbes Air Force Report 5:45 5—Walter Craniate 13—SporU 1:5f- 13—Weather 6:00 4-5-13—New* 9—News 4—Sports 6-9—Weather 4—News.
