>*• OTTAWA HERALD Pagt Four Friday, March 29, 1963 Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Editorials Machine Far From Dead The political agonies of Kansas City have drawn nationwide attention. From the model city of a few years back when the Pendergast machine was ousted, it degenerated again to a machine-operated city. In the recent election, two strong parties emerged after the machine candidates took a whipping in the primary. The old, well-established Citizens Association put up its slate headed by Ike Davis, a well-known attorney. A new organization, the Independent Voters Association, brought out its candidates headed by Button Brookfield. Both candidates for mayor, Davis and Brookfield, were known as men of integrity and ability. Where Brookfield had the charm and personality, Davis had the experience. It is interesting to note that late in the campaign the machine elements which once ruled Kansas City's north side, went to work for Brookfield. While This And That by jph Brookfield didn't solicit machine aid, he didn't reject it as did Davis. The results of the election are now well known. It was a smashing victory for the Citizens which won nine positions on the council. Only one incumbent, from the machine's north side stronghold, was re-elected. But in the race for mayor, Brookfield, with machine backing, lost by a mere 2,500 votes. Two things are significant. First is that the electorate had its fill of the crazy things happening in city hall which nationally have made a spectacle of the "Heart of the Nation." Second, any student of politics should be convinced that even though defeated, Kansas City's machine is still able to deliver a huge mass of votes. It is far from dead. Unless the voters are constantly vigilant, the hoodlum elements will rise again to control Kansas City. Friday Prohibition In Bombay JPH Even so, these Brahmins before long may be forced to compromise their ideas of morality with economic necessities. This month the Indian people have had a variety of taxes imposed on them the burden of which still has them stunned. The argument is being raised that it is unjust to levy on the poor's necesities when so much revenue could be produced through the highly taxed sale of intoxicants which would be brought largely by the foreigners and the rich. This argument is not easily countered when India is in such dire financial straits as it now is as a result of its defense effort. I shouldn't be at all surprised if the next time I return to Bombay I find the permit rooms have been converted into cocktail lounges where anyone is welcome so long as he has shoes on his feet and a few rupees in his pocket. BOMBAY — At the city border a trio of three policemen are on constant duty. All traffic stops until the bare-legged men in their blue blouses and shorts wave the vehicles on. Now and then they stop a car and search it for contraband. They are the prohibition patrol. A mile or more beyond the Bombay entrance at one side of the street is a ; blackened area covering several square blocks. Until three days ago it was crowded with the shacks in which 5,000 persons lived. Fire destroyed them all within less than an hour. The flames were started from one of the illegal stills for which the neighborhood was noted. Down on the docks there are godowns, or warehouses, in which the remaining stocks of Scotch whisky are fast dwindling. The government forbad further imports two months ago to conserve foreign exchange. The price now has doubled to $23 a bottle. The Indian - made whisky, Black Knight, is much more reasonable. For those, that is, who legally can buy it. In the downtown hotels that tourists frequent there are "permit rooms." In them the holder of ^ Ray tetoriUvr family had a narrow escape a foreign passport may obtain a permit which at ^ Missouri Pacific railroad crossing at Imes. authorizes him to buy drinks to the equivalent of a bottle a week. When I first visited Bombay five years ago the rules were scrupulously followed. A uniformed government official made a record on the back of the permit of each drink as it was purchased. The hotel's cashier made a similar notation in a large ledger. When the record showed that one had consumed his 26 ounces, that was it until next week. Indians were rarely seen in the permit rooms. Today the permit system still prevails, but the paperwork no longer curbs the guests' pleasure. Even when the quota is technically exhausted, a land word, plus perhaps a few rupees to the flOO 4-Sea Bunt 13—Huckleberry Bound ft—Tore; and Friends t:16 5—Wblrlyblrd* 1:30 4—Dragnet •—Rebel 13—News Special — FBI 1:45 6—Walter Cronklte U—eporu RiW U—Weather •:00 4-5-13— Newe B-News • :1V t—Sports 6-8—Weather •:lt 4—New*, HuntUy-Brlnkley S—Sport* B—New* 13—New* «:W 5—Bpeai-Op 8:30 4—International Showtime 6-13—Rawhide 0—Five Fingers 1:30 4—Sing Along Witb Mitch 8—Fllntstones 5-13—Route M 1:00 B—I'm Dickens . .

Main. It was operated by Mr. and Mrs. L Fuhrer. The Detwiler car stalled on the tracks with a train approaching at high speed. Detwiler managed to get the car started and into low gear and pulled off the track and in the clear. "It was close," he said, "so close I could see that the engineer had blue eyes and that he hadn't shaved that morning."

And their allotments seem to be inexhaustible. Last night in the permit room in my hotel a party of six Indians were having themselves a large evening. The drinks were coming just as fast as they ordered and with no questions asked. Tbe Indians in the dry areas (local option prevails), in other words, have adjusted themselves in the published letters: What will we get for the $100,000? What size building will be built? How many- rooms? What building material? Any wood in roof or floor? A boys' gymnasium? A girls' gymnasium? An auditorium? Will the figure include equipment? Will the figure include decorating?

But there was no theft and no one is out any money, bank officials said. First Vice President H. E. Hemmings says the 12 certificates were burned by mistake last August. The disappearance of seven million-dollar certificates and five $100,000 certificates seven months ago was disclosed Wednesday. Even other bankers had not been told of the disappearance while the bank was making its own quiet investigation. Treasury officials said the certificates ultimately will be replaced after the bank certifies to their destruction.

MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: How does a patient tactfully tell her doctor that she would like another opinion before undergoing an operation?— K.A. The foregoing actually is only the last paragraph of the letter. It's a question which from time to time is tucked into my mail by readers but always as an apparent afterthought This has happened often enough to make me think that many people are asking themselves this question but are a bit shy about coming right out and making it emphatic. Perhaps it's sort of a taboo topic in many minds. It shouldn't be. Every patient has the right, if there's a doubt in his mind, to ask for another doctor's opinion or to have a consultant called in, which is in principle much the same thing. It is a matter of getting another doctor's thinking on the case at hand. Dr. Molnet solves the matter, the less risk and worry and perhaps even suffering for the patient. Another doctor may say, "I don't think we art running any risk by waiting three months." This is a matter of judgment — arid medicint is not an exact science like mathematics or inorganic chemistry. But after you have heard the opinion of the two doctors (in some cases even more, perhaps) you will at least have a pretty sound basis of knowing whether they agree, fundamentally, and that the difference is mostly in how long it is safe to wait. When a patient wants another opinion, a physician may, in certain cases which he feels are urgent, tell you, "Go ahead, but please do it quickly. This is important." But that's a far cry from objecting. Dear Dr. Molner: Is it safe to handle thingt belonging to a person who has open cancer on the outside of his hands and face?— T.F. Cancer is not transmissible in that way. Simple ther the patient or the doctor to discuss this question matter-of-factly. Say to your doctor, "I trust and respect you, There should be no hesitancy of the part of ei- hygiene should be observed — washing your hands _ t u u-_i - «.. j-i- 4_ J: «... ^ ao>p . and water after attending the patient This, however, is not because of the cancer, but because the open areas may become infected with but I'd also feel better if I had another opinion common germs, and you naturally want to avoid such infections. Dear Dr. Molner: My wife has been treated for non-function of the adrenal glands. Her pulse does not seem to go higher than 75 and her temperature is usually 97 degrees. Would this have any bearing?—F.N. A pulse of 75 and temperature of 97 are both quite normal. Not average—but normal. I'd change that phrase about non-function of the adrenal on this before we go ahead." There is no reason, morally or logically, why any doctor should object or feel hurt. Most don't. Some may be oversensitive (yes, there are oversensitive people in the ranks of medicine, too! ) and get huffy. They shouldn't. Frankly, I do not approve of a patient trying to get another opinion secretly. Tell your doctor you want to do it. Tell the other doctor what you are doing — that doesn't mean that you have glands. They may be underactive, but' if they to tell him what the first doctor decided. You want a fully independent opinion! Generally speaking, the findings of the two doctors will be in accord. There may, however, be differences of opinion sometimes as to when to operate. One doctor may feel that as long as a given condition exists, the sooner surgery re- didn't function, she'd have much more serious symptoms. Attention all women! For the pamphlet, "The Pre-Menstrual Blues," write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover handling. This pamphlet may help you! Tonight's TV Highlights This is singalong night, with Mitch, and the soloists will be Leslie Uggams, Gloria Lambert and Louise O'Brien. Channel 4, 7:30.
