OTTAWA HERALD Page Twelve Editorials Thursday, March 28, 1963 Clay Report Benefits A full-scale fight on foreign aid has blossomed out in Congress. It is occasioned by the report of a special committee on foreign aid, headed by Gen. Lucius Clay. The Clay committee includes nine other distinguished citizens and has been studying our foreign aid problem for weeks. In its report it said that the $4.9 billion recommended might be cut by a half-billion if certain programs were reduced or eliminated. The report no sooner was made than opponents of the entire program seized on it as ammunition to cut aid spending. The administration contends that the report didn't actually recommend a cut because it said several new t>rogrrams should be instituted. The fight over how much, we fear, will obscure the many good points recommended by the Clay report. Among the points made were these: We must re-examine the policy of This And That by jph giving aid for political reasons. Gifts and hastily-devised projects to beat the Russians to the punch result in undermining the self-help theory of foreign aid. The practice of helping governments set up government-owned industries which compete with private enterprise is questionable. Our aid often is diluted in foreign lands where governments are not stable. We should insist that recipients put their houses in order first. We are bearing too much of the brunt in Africa. Western European nations which once had colonies in these areas should carry a heavier load of the aid. We now send aid to 95 countries. The result is much waste. We should narrow the field and place greater empasis on quality than quantity. By narrowing the scope of the program, it would do more good and millions could be saved. Indore Has Everything JPH INDORE — Perhaps the change was so refreshing that I overplay Indore, but I found it a delightful place. A city of nearly half a million, it lies on a 2,000-foot plateau some 300 miles northeast of Bombay. Surrounding is a rich farming area which produces wheat, cotton, garden truck, and various edible seeds I never heard of before. Those 2,000 feet make a surprising difference. Bombay has been sweltering. It is warm midday here, but by nightfall there is a refreshing breeze, and before morning one reaches for a blanket. Moreover, one can sleep without being entombed in mosquito netting, as I have had to be in all the other interior cities I have visited. Indore is the chief industrial city of the state of Madhya Pradehs, with cotton mills providing the principal employment. It is prosperous, as cities go in western India. There are new cars to be seen and taxis in addition to the pony-drawn "tonga carts." There are some wide, well-shaded residential streets lined with the mansions of cotton barons and industrialists, the new ones brightly painted and the old ones, as is typical in India, reflecting a complete indifference to maintenance and repairs. Here, if a window is broken, roof tiles work loose, or plaster decoration peels away from the brick wall beneath, the fact is simply ignored. The streets of Indore are clean, relatively. The margins of the principal ones are swept carefully every morning by bent-over, old women using bunches of twigs. The narrow bazaar streets and those in the old quarter of the city, however, are best dismissed as picturesque. Here and there the odor of open sewers is unmistakable, and 30 sacred cows cannot loll away the morning in a single block without leaving behind considerable evidence of their presence. Indore has doubled in size the past 15 years, and there is still a noticeable amount of new construction in progress. It has three plane flights a week in each direction from its airport. Its railroad line is narrow gauge, so everyone must change when he reaches the main line on his way to Delhi or Bombay. It has five daily newspapers, with four-page editions all printed in Hindi. The largest has a circulation of 9,000. There are few "sights" in Indora itself, but there is a pleasant park where people promenade in the evening, and a Jain temple in which the floors, walls, and ceilings are all of glass. Three life-size statues of whatever god it is, plus some fascinating paintings showing high points of the god's life, make if more than worth avisit, even if one must remove his shoes before entering. The sights that Indore lacks, however, are to be found in several smaller places, up in the hills, not too many miles away. These make Indore a tourist center in a small way and provide it with an attraction no other cities in this area can boast. That is, by Indian standards, a modern hotel. The Lantern has hot water taps in its baths garden at the edge of the city. There are surrounding trees which provide delightful shade through the day but unfortunately are a popular raven roost at night. The ravens caw in their sleep. Two or three of them will awaken to croak their discontent with the world during what otherwise would be the long, still hours. Shortly before dawn the noise of a banging door or a backfiring car will rouse all of them to an angry chorus of caws that is almost deafening. In Indore one does not sleep late. The Lantern has hot water taps in it baths but no hot water. The ice it provides is flecked with dirt. Its beds are hard. There is no elevator. The towels are unbleached and abrasive. But the Lantern has clean sheets in all of its rooms. A three-piece orchestra which plays "Dardanella" and "Stardust" through the meal hours. Brown boys who are always whisking in to shine your shoes, take your laundry, serve you coffee, or polish the terrazzo floors. A 280-pound manager who is "mine host" to perfection. A motion picture theater on its grounds. Edible food. For $3 a day for a room with bath and meals, who reasonably could ask for anything more? Prayer For Today He hath shewed thee, 0 man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? (Micah 6:8.) PRAYER: 0 God our Father, Thy requirements of each of Thy children are high, and so often we feel we cannot reach the standards revealed to us in Thy Word. Save us from being overwhelmed by failings. Teach us that it is possible for us to do Thy will, fulfill Thy requirements, and become more like Thee; through Christ our Savior. Amen. jpijir^ni^raij:!!!^^ Si'. ' . .If.'

Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I am four feet, nine inches tall. Eight months ago I weighed 1&3. I went on a diet of my own, but I'm so hungry and weak all the time that I'm miserable.. I have a girl friend who lost between 25 and 40 pounds and she never seems hungry or listless. She has your calorie chart and follows it. She knows by heart what foods she should eat and the amount of calories each contains. I lose a couple of pounds one week, then gain four the next. Just as sure as I eat a meal that fills my stomach I can look for some more added pounds.—L.B. I'm sorry you're having- trouble but glad your girl friend has found my chart so effective. f o reduce takes some will power, and even more than that. You can't simply starve the weight off without paying for it in other ways. You need foods that contain necessary vitamins. You need protein, the basic material of which our bodies are built. You need a certain amount of bulk to keep your digestive system in order. You do not need much fat, starch or sugar. These are the foods that are high in calories and hence pack on the pounds. The calorie chart your friend has been using includes some explanation of how to lose weight safely, along with the calorie values of representative foods. A copy is available if you write to me for it in care of this newspaper, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope and five cents in coin. Dear Dr. Molner: Is there danger from cooking in aluminum? We had a salesman here who said it is harmful. I shoved him my stainless steel and he said if it isn't "surgical steel" and a kind that you can use without water, it isn't much better than aluminum, as too many vitamins are lost. We didn't buy any of his utensils, but now we are wondering.—C.S.D. Aluminum and stainless steel are both perfectly all right. If one of these scare-story, high-pressure individuals shows up again, I'd either slam the door in his face, or talk to him just long enough to find out his name and his company's name and address, and then report him to the Better Business Bureau. Dear Dr. Molner: My husband was hospitalized and the doctor said the diagnosis was gall stones and very rich blood for which nothing could be done. The insurance report read "cholelithiasis and To Your Good Health' Reducing Takes Will Power Laff-A-bay blood dyscrasia." Bone marrow aspiration was negative. Kindly advise if this is anything serious. -MRS. H.A. JhoteUthiMis means gall stones and a "blood dyscrasia" could mean any of a lot of blood disorders. Some may be serious but it depends on the nature. In short, you'll have to talk to your doctor to learn whether this is or isn't a dangerous dyscrasia. , Dear Dr. Molner: What about urethritis — its cause and treatment? Is it curable?—MRS. E.X. The urethra is the tube which takes urine from the bladder to the point of discharge. Ther- fore urethritis is inflammation of this tube. There can be many causes, usually infection of some sort. With modern drugs it can be treated successfully. NOTE TO MRS. A.S.: The drug you are taking is an appetite • depressant rather than a tranquilizer or "happy pill." I can't quarrel with your use of it under the circumstances (supervised by your doctor) but it is a rather vigorous stimulant. It is also one of the drugs now under study as to its possible effects early in pregnancy, so if there is a likelihood of your becoming pregnant, I would be chary of continuing it. Much heart trouble is preventable. Write to Dr Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., for your copy of his booklet, "How To Take Care Of Your Heart," enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover cost of printing and handling.
