It was followed later by withdrawal of Soviet troops, how many isn't known. But now we appear to be putting up another blackade of Cuba, this time to keep Premier Fidel Castro's enemies from landing on that island.

There are indications that the relations between Russia and Cuba are somewhat strained. Proper pressure applied by this country has resulted in some reduction of Soviet forces in Cuba. Even greater troop movements away from the island can be expected. Raids by desperate refugees, however, run counter to the U.S. position and could strengthen Cuban-Russian relations.

This And That by jph Ashes On The Waters ' Calcutta — The Ganges flows turgidly through Calcutta on its way to the sea 120 miles below. Its waters are dark and dirty. Here it has become a large enough stream so that it can accommodate ocean-going tramp steamers of up to 1,500 tons and all manner of river craft. They unload •their coal or the manufactured goods from the Western world, for which India can spare its severely limited foreign exchange, and pick up jute, icotton, and textiles for export. But the Ganges has many oth- jer uses for Calcutta beyond be' ing a waterway. Much of the • city's raw sewage is poured in- i to it. Uncountable thousands . make their way down the steep j banks every day to cleanse them- 1 selves both physically and ; spiritually in the holy waters. • Dhobies, or washermen, clean • clothes by flailing them on stones :at the water's edge and then JPH as the picture was taken by the man who was focusing his old camera from beneath a black hood, the body would be stretched out on the low pile of small logs, more wood would be placed on top it, and the pyre would be lighted. Over the sixth pit the flames were blazing fiercely. Two bare brown feet and ankles were protruding beyond the faggots. There was the sound of sizzling, but, curiously, there was no smell of burning flesh. Around the courtyard various figures moved Sadhus in loincloths with religious symbols marked in chalk on their faces and chests. A few beggar women. Men fetching more wood. Survi vors waiting until there was nothing but ashes in the pit with which they were concerned. Ashes which could be swept into a receptable, carried down the long flight of steps to the water's edge, and after proper prayers, cast into the holy waters of the Ganges, there to remain for eternity.

This means that 45 of rthem die on an average day. Ninety per cent of •them are Hindus. Their religion dictates that ; their bodies should be cremated. Their custom is : that it shall be done on the banks of the sacred •river. ' Death here is taken in stride. Cremation is a >most sensible procedure, since it brings to an im- grain judging at Lawrence, and won all five top marked only a practical, philosophical acceptance of one of the hard facts of life, which is death. An Id Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Ottawa High School judging teams of the Future Farmers of 'America, participated in a contest of mediate conclusion the work the forces of nature would require many years to do and which only ;the mummy-making Egyptians have successfully "defied. If religion didn't dictate cremation here, health conditions and the climate would. ; As in any society, there are conventions to • follow. The minute it is certain death has oc- •curred, the body is clad in its best clothes, laid out on the typical Indian bed, which is no more : than a simple, four-legged framework with .a.lattice of reeds across the top of it, garlanded with flowers, and covered with a sheet of trans- parents plastic material. Four professional pallbearers are called to bear Ithe bier on their shoulders. On their way they pass '_ the homes of family members and friends, who ;fall into procession behind. All walk; it is not eti- -quette to ride. Within one hour to four, irrespec- •tive of what time of the day or night death has : taken place, they have reached the burning ghats. ; I visited one of them. It was a small courtyard ; within time-worn, old gray walls. In one corner ' was a modest Hindu shrine. In another was a group of chairs where the survivors sit to have : themselves photographed, if they can afford it, Iwith the corpse stretched out on its bed before ;;them. : In the hard earth of the courtyard there were "half a dozen shallow pits. Two of them were • swept clean. In two more the fires had almost -burned down to ashes. Over the fifth a two-foot ;depth of faggots had been laid. The one who with- Tin minutes would lie on it was being photographed •with at least 50 members of his family. As soon placings. The students were Curtis Mathias, Raymond Johnson, Max Floyd, Robert Jacob and Donald Rappard. Their teacher was C. 0. Banta. The office of L. I. Crater, city clerk, was preparing for the city election. Hugh Branaman was on crutches. Sprained his ankle. 50 YEARS AGO There was talk of walling up the banks of Skunk Run with stone in City Park. Clarence Cookus went to Olathe to work as a railroad timekeeper. R. E. Elder went to Paola to prepare for his summer work as manager of the Patterson Shows, which wintered at Paola. Prayer For Today The boy Samuel grew in the presence of the Lord. . . Samuel continued to grow both in stature and in favor with the Lord and with men. (I Samuel 2:21, 26 RSV.) PRAYER: We thank Thee, 0 God, for Christ who in His early years grew in wisdom and in Thy favor, and continued His glorious ministry un til He had finished His work on earth. Help us to become like Him, and to direct others into the fullness of the life in Christ, in whose name we ask. Amen.

H. R. Certainly. The swimming danger is that the Dr. Molnet igestion; for warmth in the cool or eld water; and for the exertion required) •an deprive some muscles of an adequate supply. Rebelling, a muscle has a cramp. And cramps can result in drowning. A bath is another matter. It sn't strenuous, and it's usually taken in warm water, so you don't run the risk of cramps such as in swimming. Besides, even if you did have a cramp, you wouldn't drown in the bathtub. You'd just lie there until it relaxed, s it soon would. Does this make the difference lear? Dear Dr. Molner: Six months ago I sat down on he buckle of a seat belt and injured the end of my spine. By evening I could hardly sit down. The pain later subsided but if I have to sit for a ong time it is very painful to move again. Is here something I can do or should I see a doctor? -MRS. J. G. It's the coccyx,, or vestigial tail, at the end of he spine. Bruised, it can remain sensitive for quite a long time. Frankly, there's not much to lo except wait for it to recover. I hope I won't offend you by using your case to warn others: Seat belts are to be worn, not sat on. Dear Dr. Molner: I've read a lot about high blood pressure but nothing about what to do for ow blood pressure. — MRS. T. M. High blood pressure can be dangerous; low blood jressure unless extreme causes no inconvenience and avoids the hazards, too. It may cause light- me; ask your neighbors." What's the difference between menopause and change of life?—MRS. M. Not much difference. Actually, "menopause" means the end of menstrual periods, and "change of life" generally refers to the time during which symptoms may appear, related to the adjustment of the system to a different hormone supply and activity. I deplore your doctor's lack of tact but I secretly admire his bluntness. Every doctor knows he can talk until he's blue in the face and not be able to describe or predict how any woman will feel at the time of menopause. He doesn't experience it as a male. Likeliest things are "hot flashes" and sometimes irritabilitv. Some women apparently have virtually no difficulty at all, and «st some have a good deal. Some doubtless are "talked" into having symptoms which they would otherwise just brush aside if they hadn't been filled full of dire forebodings by other women. The thing to remember is that this is a perfectly natural event which in due time occurs to all women, and there is no reason to expect anything terrible. Annoying, yes, sometimes, but that's all. Doctors know that women patients get together and compare symptoms. Menopause is going to happen; we can't stop it. So let it happen, but keep our eyes and ears tuned for any real troubles, if they occur. Are you bothered with ringing in the ears? If so, white 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.
