OTTAWA HERALD FOOT Tuesday, March 28, 1963 Editorials It Happens Every Spring A story out of Emporia has it that two men stole $100 from an elderly woman in that city. They gained access to her home by agreeing to paint her home for "advertising" purposes and also agreed to paper her house on the inside if she paid for materials used. When she went for the money she revealed where she kept her money. It also appears that a similar incident occurred at Olpe earlier. There the loss was $140. It happens every spring. Warm weather brings out itinerant painters, roofers, paperhangers, tree trimmers, etc. Some are honest and work for reliable firms. But others are not. Often the victim is overcharged, stolen blind or gets shoddy work. Thii And That by jph Taking cognizance of this, business firms in Independence, Kas., recently ran a full page newspaper ad warning homeowners to "beware of smooth-talking home improvement itinerant salesmen." They suggested homeowners do a little checking before they agree to use services of someone who is working out of a car or the back of a truck. This is sound advice. Investigation into some of the "bargains" offered will lead the wise to realize the safest approach is to utilize the services of those with established local reputation. After all the local improvement firms can stay in business only so long as they receive local business. "This results from quality work with the proper materials at equitable prices. Much Out Of Whack JPH BOMBAY — For the past two weeks I have been commuting — if overnight train trips can be called commuting — from Bombay to interior cities. I've retained my hotel room here from the start. Fve had to, to be sure of having a place to stay on each return. Rooms with western comforts are scarce in Bombay. On my first arrival, two hours after I had checked into what is one of the five best hotels in the city, I decided it was not my imagination. The air conditioner was not working. An electrician came. He tinkered, shrugged, and reported the conditioner was beyond repair. I turned on the ceiling fan with which the rom was fortunately provided. The next morning I turned on the shower. No hot water. A plumber came, tinkered, shrugged, and said the hot water heater in my bathroom was worn out. After a while they brought me a pail of hot water. Soon after the ceiling fan failed. The elctricity had gone off throughout the hotel, and it was several hours before service repairs were made. This afternoon it is the water that has failed. Prom such experiences it would be all too easy to conclude that the Indians don't know how to make anything work. But this is not the case at all. Given training, the Indians became skilled workmen, and if they weren't, half the very old cars on the streets would not be in operation at all. The explanation is simply that India has such • limited supply of 20th century mechanisms and must stretch this supply so far that breakdowns must be taken as the order of the day. To make matters much worse, for much of India these mechanisms still are unknown. And so are the individual disciplines on which the effective functioning of a modern nation depends. One can not pick up a morning paper (and all those with large circulations are printed in English) without being reminded of it. Today, for instance, there was an interview with the health minister of the state of Madhya Pradesh. He reported that in his state alone there were 9,966 villages (with an average population of 1,000 probably) that did not have a single well for drinking water. A second minister from the same state added information from a different field. In a four-month period there had been "640 murders, 251 dacoities, and 323 kidnappings." Another item revealed that "A man-eater (tiger) in Koraput, which has created widespread panic, is a more immediate menace than the Chinese dragon, and must be shot at once." From Sholapur, it is noted a dam, which has been scheduled for 10 years to give the city a sufficient supply of drinking water, has had its construction date postponed again. Another item reports that in Bombay itself 7,000 persons had been apprehended in the past week, through a special check, for "irregular travel" (stealing rides) on the suburban trains. Two other news stories twinned interestingly. One reported the speech of an income tax official who delcared, "Tax evasion is not considered a crime by Indians and a tax evader is considered a very clever person." The second story told of the arrest of 20 income tax collectors for accepting bribes. Against such a background one takes philosophically the discovery that the air conditioner in his room is gone beyond repair. Particularly if he since has been transferred as I have, to another room with a conditioner that functions well. I only hope the person who is occupying my former room is resigned. But I do wish the water would be turned on again. I want to take a bath. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO The pupils of Hood School visited the Herald office to see how a newspaper is printed. In the group were: Mazie Richardson, Ada Richardson, Virginia Bales, Glenola Hayward, Emma Staffer, Elwood Bales, Donald Mitchell, Donald Crain, Max Gilmore and Murray McConnahey. John Eiselc of Richmond was ill with whooping cough. f spare tire was stolen from the car of H. L. Price as it was parked in the 10 Oblock on West 2nd. 50 FEARS AGO Several Ottawans were getting interested in going to Montana to take up land claims. It had been announced that some Indian lands were being opened for settlement. Among Ottawans and Franklin Countians showing interest were Frank Howard, Earl VanDerlip, Bert Anderson, H. P. Davidson, Bert Wheeler, H. V. Davidson and sons, True and William Davidson. Arthur Lamb, undertaker and furniture dealer at Williamsburg was here en route to Kansas City on business. Members of the Christian Church announced they would serve a chicken pie dinner, the ticket price being 25 cents. Prayer For Today Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105. RSV. ) PRAYER: O God, as we study Thy Word, may each discover for himself the profound truth that the most important things in life are faith, hope, and love; and that the greatest of these is love — goodwill in action. In the Master's name. Amen. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel* 5-13, CBS Chaand 9, ABC Tuesday •IN 4— Sea Bunt t~YoH Bear 13— Bu(i Bunny 6— Whlrly Bird!

JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: A friend of mine said she could not take calcium because the Vitamin D it contains makes bones grow, and at her age of 58 she doesn't want this to happen. I take calcium and Vitamin D every day and I'm 70 What about her opinion?-MRS. E.W. The friend may be very certain in her views, but she's decidedly mixed up. There isn't any Vitamin D in calcium. They are entirely separate things, although Vitamin D, among other valuable services, aids proper use of calcium in the body. She is also misinformed about bone growth. The bones don't, continue to grow after one has reached full stature, and no amount of Vitamin D, calcium or anything else you consume can make them grow. On the other hand, throughout our lives we continue to need calcium. It is gradually replaced in the bones to keep them strong. (We are constantly replacing our bodies a cell at a time.) Calcium is important in healing wounds. By the same token it helps prevent bruises, or makes them fade more quickly. It plays an active part in preventing muscular cramps. So you just go your way and don't worry about he misinformation that your friend gave you. Incidentally, I hope she gets enough calcium in icr food to keep healthy. Leafy green vegetables and milk are among many sources of calcium. We'd be in a sorry pickle if calcium weren't )lentiful in some of our foods.) Dear Dr. Molner: You wrote, in answer to a question, that it is dangerous to sit in a closed car with the motor running, because of carbon monoxide poisoning. In my locality a teen-age couple died recently Calcium of carbon monoxide in an outdoor theater. Tht driver's window was rolled down a third of the way. you could do your readers a favor by changing your advice to never sit in a car with ^the motor running.—JOHN Mc.A. Thank you, sir. Within a fornight after I wrote that column, at least seven persons were killed by carbon monoxide within 100 miles of my home. As to the couple in the outdoor theater, I strongly suspect that at the last moment the driver began to open the window, but was too late. Other* wise there would have been enough oxcygen. If anybody had noticed them, the tragedy would not have occurred. I can say only: You can't be too careful. Dear Dr. Molner: I have been worried for al« most two years now. At that time I had an affair with a man. I have paid by being worried sick about veneral disease. I havo had spells, every few months, of itching and hurting and a discharge. All my life I have had the latter. Please answer so I can stop wor* rying. - (INITIALS WITHHELD.) I don't want yon to stop worrying until you have consulted a doctor. Then you'll know. I omitted many details in your letter. You can write to others for advice about your guilty conscience. But my answer is this: Go to a gynecologist Have a blood test for syphilis and a smear for gonorrhea. If there's V.D., get it treated. Now! If there isn't, then have treatment for the discharge, It ought to be crued regardless of how you acquired it. . NOTE TO MRS. W.: No, a razor does not make a coarser regrowth of hair than a cream. In either case, all you do is remove the hair that has emerged above the surface. "You Can Stop Sinus Trouble!" is the title of my booklet explaining what sinus trouble really is, and encouraging sinus sufferers to do something about it For a copy write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover printing and handling.
