OTTAWA HERALD V w Pa«r Four Editorials Saturday, March 30, 1963 Saturday Notebook Like the postman who takes a walk on ' his day off, one of our favorite sports is reading other newspapers. Scarcely a day passes that we don't read at least part of the 50 newspapers which come into The Herald office each day. A favorite section in these newspapers are the editorial columns. One reason is that it's nice to know who is fighting with whom. Another reason is that you never know where you'll find an idea for an editorial of your own. Yesterday in scanning nearby papers we picked up some of the following bits. At Lawrence the editor of the Journal- World is elated at the way Rep. Odd Williams has conducted himself in the Kansas Legislature. He is no "yes" man, says the J-W, which concludes that "There are a number of people who would like to see Odd Williams seek the governorship." The Miami Republican is elated with the way the state highway department has allocated funds for Miami County, pointing out that "there are 70 miles of paved federal highways in the county" plus 70 miles of blacktop on K68 which is "not so bad for a county." Neighboring editor at the Osawatomie Graphic worries about news management by the federal government and advises its readers thusly: "Don't believe everything you read about news from Washington these days. The government has lied in the past and may be doing so now." To Your Good Health Picking out a current sports topic, the Parsons Sun editorializes on the recent death of boxer Davey Moore. It points out that "217 men suffered fatal injuries in the ring in the past 17 years." The editor concludes that "it is granted that boxing, either professional or amateur, and the body building that goes with it has much to recommend it in many ways. But the views of boxing's opponents on moral grounds are not hard to agree with, either." Over in El Dorado the editor of the Times says the Kansas Legislature has "dilly-dallied for two solid months." He concludes that it is "too bad we have to run our law-making business in this helt- er-skelter fashion." Voting machines are the concern of the editor at Olathe where the one-armed tabulators are to be an issue on Tuesday. Urging a "yes" vote for the voting machines, he tells readers that the machines are convenient, protect the voter from having his ballot tossed out, guarantee secrecy and accuracy and eliminate fraud. Tackling weightier things is the editor at Independence who says 26 states permit horse racing and most allow pari- mutuel betting. Secret to allowing this sport is added tax revenue. But, he concludes, with racing and betting come lower moral standards. So what are we going to have, high morals and bis: taxes or low morals and full treasuries? Harm In Thawing Food Cyclone Doin's MARGARET ANNE So Many Things In Just One Week By MARGARET WILLIAMS and ANNE MACHIN Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: Frozen food items frequently carry the phrase, "Do Not Refreeze." Why? Is it harmful? If so when you buy meat, how do you know it hasn't been refrozen?—MRS. R. P. The freezing preserves food and he cold prevents bacteria from being active. Each thawing and refreezing permits a period in which the bacteria can do their work. This can amount to a considerable length of time. It isn't the refreezing that does : the damage; it's the thawed period in between. (Of less im.. tance to health is the fact that alternate melting and freezing damags the texture of many foods, and the moisture content will be altered.) How do you know that meat hasn't been refrozen? Well, I dare say the strongest reason is that the sellers of such food want to maintain their good reputations. They want you to be pleased with what you buy, and come back for more. Experts who deal in food inspection say meat that is thawed and refrozen acquires a sort of silvery appearance on the surface, and it's very easy to recognize. But don't confuse this with the frost that naturally may have formed on frozen meat. Dear Dr. Molner: I think you made reference to a stool softener. As I suffer badly with constipation, would you mention something for relief?— B.B. Yes. The softener I mentioned was dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate, which is used in quite a number of preparations under various brand names. (For some other methods of relieving constipation, you can, if you wish, send for a copy of my booklet, "The Way to Stop Constipation." Write your request to me, Box 158, Dundee, 111., enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover handling.) Dear Dr. Molner: What about insufficient acid in the stomach? Is the hydrochloric acid my doctor prescribes for each meal necessary for the rest of my life, or are two years long enough?— J.W.S. This ailment is like some others that are caused by the body's failure to create enough of one sub- .stance — and with it you usually have to continue treatment indefinitely. Dear Dr. Molner: Several years ago our son had an earache all night. I took him to the doctor and he was given a penicillin shot. He had •a fainting spell, or a reaction similar to it. Because of this, the doctor has not given penicillin again. ' Is there any test to determine whether a person is sensitive to penicillin?—Mrs. G.B.K. The number of penicillin-sensitive individuals has increased, in part at least because of promiscuous use of the drug in the past. There are both skin and eye tests to determine sensitivity. Other equally effective antibiotics can be used instead of penicillin. Remember to warn other doctors of the sensitivity. Dear Dr. Molner: Is there any special treatment or cure for Paget's Disease? And is it similar to osteoarthritis?—J. K. No, sir, there is no specific treatment or cure for Paget's Disease. And no, it is not related to osteoarthritis in any way. Paget's is a loss of calcium from, the bones. '• Osteoarthritis is a thickening of the bone ends it the edges, due to wear and tear, changes brought about from aging, or perhaps other factors. Dear Dr. Molner: I have a corn on the toe next to the great toe (between the toes) and it now has caused a corn on the great toe. Is it advisable to have the smaller toe removed?—MRS. V.B.K That's a pretty drastic measure, and obviously could to some extent interfere with your balance on that foot. "Soft corns" such as you describe often disappear if you remove the pressure that cause them. Placing cotton or gauze between the toes, along with wearing a slightly wider shoe would be a sensible approach to this problem. Of all the problems that pediatricians encounter in children, pinworm is the commonest. To learn the newest methods of treatment for this pest, write Box 158, Dundee, 111., for my booklet, "The Commonest Pest, Pinworm," enclosing a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents to cover printing and handling. Aulcl Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO The annual class play of the senior class at Appanoose High School was "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine." A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Ward, of Centropolis. The baby was named Teressa Ann. Walter Hull, foreman of the stores department of the Santa Fe railroad, was on vacation. 50 YEARS AGO John Beiter underwent an operation on one arm. He was injured when thrown from a horse and 302 N. Cedar. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. James Paget, the injury had not healed properly, examinations for seven-month schools. Miss Nona Moore went to Norwood to conduct Prayer For Today I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. (John 13:15.) PRAYER: Dear Lord, we thank Thee for the example of Thy Son, Jesus Christ, who went about doing good. May we also be so filled with His spirit that we may desire only to do good to others. Create in us sympathetic and loving hearts, 0 Lord. In His name we ask it. Amen.

Every single student at OHS was touched with excitement as chorus, art, band, T&I, home economics and Scholarship Club activities fell into the same week. All league chorus students gathered at Olathe High School Monday for a vocal music festival. The 400 vocalists practiced 'Thanks Be to God," "Cantate Domino," "Flower of Beauty," and "Almost Like Being in Love," in the afternoon. The entire group, directed by Charles Schaffer of the Emporia State Music department, presented a public concert at 7 p.m Kaye Kallail, vocal director al Rosedale High School, led the girls in singing two numbers, Sunrise" and "Tonight," from "West Side Story." Following the group, the boys sang "Jamaica, Farewell" and "Jack Was Every Inch a Sailor," under the direction of Mr. Schaffer. The program was concluded with "Onward, Ye People." The 50 representatives from Ottawa left at noon in buses sponsored by John Jones, OHS choral music director. March 25-29 was Home Economics Week throughout the nation. Home EC students began the week by wearing tags, designed by Rosie Lister, signifying the various aspects of homemaking. FHA members entered the scene Thursday by inviting all senior high girls to their meeting which included a special program by Rosemary Crist, county home demonstration agent. Rounding out the week was a trip to Kansas State University for 39 girls. At the conference today, the future homemakers were to see displays of all phases of home economics, attend teas and tour the K-State campus. This year marks the first time OHS students have attended the K-State Hospitality Day. Not forgetting their curricular duties, Miss Pmnty's English students are undertaking one of their big projects of the year, the writing of research papers. Practicing for future college work, the seniors are learning the correct way to footnote, make note cards, write a bibliography and find reference material for their selected topics. The English students are beginning this research work while reading plays for book report credit. Instead of writing the usual work review, the seniors after re-reading and analyzing their plays, will write a criticism of the play. Juniors ran through the halls Tuesday shouting "There here— here here!" All the excitement was over the arrival of the 1964 class rings. Following tradition at OHS, the juniors put on their class rings in such a manner as to make the initials appear right side up as they look at their own rings. In only one more year, on their graduation night, the seniors of 1964 will then turn their rings outward, signifying their entrance into the adult world. Wednesday a field trip was taken by a group of girls interested in a nusring career. Kay Barr, Pat Ruble, Virginia Paul, Nicki Prentice and Barbara Heathman. Along with representatives from groups from lola, Wellsville, Paola, Bishop Misge, Turner and Eiivertown high schools, toured the Osawatomie State Hospital during its open house. After vis- ting all the v wards and being en- tertained by the student nurses, the girls were allowed to give their questions to a panel of patients from the hospital. Last week at the regional FBLA convention, Marjorie Golden won first place in the advanced shorthand competition with a speed of 80 words per minute. Also placing in the contest was Peggy Walburn who took third in the beginning shorthand with a speed of 80 words a minute. The girls received their awards because they had the highest and the third highest ratings of accuracy. Pittsburg was the next destination for Ottawans. Loren Matthews took his senior high band to both Pittsburg high schools yesterday to present assemblies of the following music: Washington Post March, American Civil War Fantasy, Trumpets Ole, Ben Hur Overture, Touch of Jazz, Bolero for Band and Alameda. At noon, the Ottawa band members took a tour of the Pittsburg State campus. The program was given by 70 OHS musicians. Dick Collins, Arlyss Baker, Peggy Rybolt, Sheri Seright, Jean Wright, Anne Machin, Bill Belle- fueille, Rosemary Lister, Max Spooner, Eloise Warner, Cynthia Fletcher, Mark Andrews, Jackie Taylor, Linda Boldovino, Bonnie McArdle and their art instructor, Tom Jordan, also took a spring field trip yesterday. The art enthusiasts attended a Kansas University conference on the fine arts. Displays by KU various art media and lectures were featured during the day. Students also were welcome to visit the campus art museum. Also included in Friday's list of trips was a journey to the Delco Battery plant in Olathe. Betty Mangum, Irene Middlebusher, Pat Ruble, Bob Albers, Helen Kruk, Jane Anderson, Al Hancock, Clifford Burgoon, Jim Robbins, Mike Stevens, Edwin Henry, T & I instructor, and Principal W. P. Shepard, were guided through.the plant and informed of the manufacturing processes as a part of the Trade and Industry department's program of extensive research into business procedures. A switch from labor to leisure will be made tonight by members of the OHS Junior High Scholarship Club. The club is having a hobo party at the Forest Park shelter at 6:30. Approximately 60 members of this organization of honor roll students will take part in the treasure hunt, wiener roast and dance planned by committee chairmen Connie Warnock and Doug Bennett. The group is led by President Hurst Coffman and Mrs. E. E. Caylor. After this busy week of trips, meetings, practices and parties, Cyclones are preparing to take this weekend in slow motion. HERALD CH 2-4700 This And That by jph Beauty F®r Only A CALCUTTA — In the center of Calcutta there is a large area in which the grandeur of the British raj has been maintained. It is centered with a broad expanse of park with gardens' a number of roving sacred cows, stately banyan trees, and this now remains. a small, decorous golf course for women only. Once there must have been a polo ground when the maharajahs and the Guard's officers matched their mallets and their ponies, but no trace of great areas of grass. Under one of them, if my driver is to be trusted, is a fort built on several levels, as was the Maginot line. In it is permanently stationed a garrison of 10,000. This would seem a proper location, since Calcutta, is India's largest port and industrial city, and it is located virtually on the border with East Pakistan. Within and around the park are the various monumental structures the British found necessary for their work, their play, and their status symbols of empire. There is government House, a palace, which in structure is comparable to the White House, and which from the rear, has an astonishing resem- balance to our President's home H in Washington. Formerly it was J " B the residence of Britain's Governor General. Today the Governor of West Bengal lives in it in a style to which no official of a nation as poor as India should be permitted to be come accustomed. Close by are other imposing buildings, displaying the. Victorian love of heavy construction and red brick, in which the courts, the legislature, and the various state bureaucrats are lodged. Some of the structures are of recent construction. Bureaucrats breed like rabbits. Conveniently close in the park are the sports facilities the former British Emperor's emissaries considered essential. There are cracket ground, naturally. A race course with a 1^-mile track and stands which must seat 50,000. There is even On the far side of the park, standing in largt special grounds of its own, is the Victorian Memorial, which Calcuttans boast is India's most beautiful structure, nert to the Taj Mahal. Sheath ed in marble, it is a vast building with lines not unlike those of our Capitol building in Washington. It was a "gift" of the Indian people, but it was a sterile one, since the Memorial has only limited use for museum and art exhibit purposes. The same number of crores of rupees would have built dams to provide a sure water supply to a few million of the masses who contributed their pitances to make this palace possible. Beyond the Memorial, in an area decorated with a large, artificial lake, is the district where the best people lived in the old days and continue to in the new. Their mansions stand behind high walls along quiet streets. Many of them seem fantastically large, but then you recall the Indian pattern under which as many as four genera* tions occupy the same home. The older residences look badly down at the heels, but this reflects only the Indian indifference to maintenance rather than any lack, of money for repairs. The newer ones show blantantly that cost was no consideration and give solid proof to the fact that even in this country's present semi* socialist society the rich have been able to take care of themselves. Life must be pleasant, in and around the spreading central park. It is a life, however, from which most of the 654 millions who are crowded together in the remainder of Calcutta are completely shut out.
