OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, April 4, 1963 -\ Editorial. What About Plumbicare? The average American family spends more money annually on its automobile than it does for health care. The bit of knowledge is revealed in a story in the current issue of the AMA News, a magazine published by the American Medical Association. Cited to prove the point are statistics from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Health Insurance Institute. According to a survey taken in seven metropolitan areas across the nation, the annual motor car expenditure averages 12.5 per cent. Spending for health purposes ranged from 5.3 per cent to 6.9 per cent. The results of this survey, no doubt, will cause happy smiles in the country's auto industry. This, however, wasn't the intent of the AMA News. It is waging an unending battle against Medicare, the name given to the administration's com- This And That by jph pulsory medical plan for the aged which would be tied to Social Security. The AMA has taken the position that Medicare is not needed, would duplicate private health insurance plans and would socialize doctors. The AMA statistics do prove an interesting point. America spends more to keep wheels turning than it does on its health. Maybe the administration should recognize this great social problem and evolve an Autocare plan. Or to go a step further, what a.bout Plumbicare for those faced with staggering plumbing bills in old age? Or TV- care? Or Electricare? If our government is to adopt the philosophy that it is all things to all men, let's not be halfway about it. Let Uncle Sam take care of the whole man, from his indigestion to his blown picture tube, his sticky valves to clogged sewers. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel. 5.13, CBS Channel 9. ABC Thursday Cheerless Talk At Dinner JPH CALCUTTA — An Englishman as everyone knows, is a most reserved person who never will strike up a conversation with a stranger, but these two did. Not only that, they insisted I should have dinner with them. They proved to be traveling salesmen with all India as their territory. One sold dredges, the other calculating machines. One had a Cockney accent, the other from his voice had originated somewhere in the Midlands. One had lived here 12 years, the other seven. If they weren't "old India hands," you could never get them to admit it. Their views on this country were identical, pessimistic, and pronounced. They, deeply regretted that their Britain had liquidated this portion of its empire, but they realized it was the only thing possible under the circumstances. They were satisfied from their own experiences that much of the American and British aid to India was being wasted, but felt it was essential from the standpoint of the givers that the aid be continued all the same. The Indian governments, both national and slate, expand old ministries and create new ones. "They're filling with buggers who don't do much except bugger things up," said the Englishman with the Cockney accent. He added that corruption was to be taken as a. matter of course, and that everyone had his hand out. He didn't blame them exactly, because they were paid so little they had to make up for it on the side. The other Englishman was certain that the Indians were better off under British rule, only they weren't smart enough to see it. "What the beggars need is a touch of the steel rod, such as we supplied," he observed. He thought that they might get it, if the Chinese moved, as he expected them to any day, in the form of a military dictatorship. He even knew a general who would be exactly the right man. (Parenthetically, this same view, of the possibility of a military government, I have heard expressed by more than one Indian during the past month.) This conversation had taken us down through our soup, bit of beef that was actually buffalo, fried potatoes, and boiled peas. It continued as we idled with our coffee. One of my companions pointed out that India was now in its third five-year plan for economic development and was in the planning stage for its fourth. Through them India has made many material advances, but not enough. The plans had made some Indians even richer, but there had been no improvement in the standard of living of the masses. Lacking was that touch of the steel red. The other, the Cockney one, returned to the military prospect. He thought the Chinese would take the offensive again and that "the buggers will not be able to hold them." But in his view the purpose of the Communists would not be to conquer India. "With 650 millions of their own to control, why should they want to take on 450 millions more?" As a coffee cup strategist he expected the Chinese would cut across the corner of Assam and make their way on down into Burma anrl from there spread over the entire southeast Asian peninsula. "And your people and ours will have to try to stop them you know, old boy. It will be a bloody awful mess." This wasn't a cheerful note on which to end the conversation, but it was the only note there was. After paying our bill, we went our separate ways, I never got their names, but they called one another John and Tom. And I suspect their views are those of most of the resident British. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Ottawa University track and field squad defeated St. Benedict's College squad in a dual track meet, 105& to Bonita Magers, age three months, was ill with chickenpoxs. Twenty members of the Battry B, Ottawa's National Guard unit, attended church services at Grace Episcopal Church, a part of the observance of Army Week. 50 FEARS AGO There was much complaining about chickens running at large in Ottawa. They were scratching up lawns and gardens and playing heck generally. E. E. Pember and E. M. Elliott went to Norwood to adjust insurance claims for wind damage. City Attorney Ben Bowers spoke to the 5th grade pupils at Hawthorne School on the subject of 'The Philippines." He had been a school teacher in the Philippines. Prayer For Today We all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. (II Corinthians 3:18.) PRAYER: Dear Lord, help us to look unto Jesus, who is the author and finisher of our faith This day grant us growth in likeness to Him that our hearts may be like His and our spirits in harmony with Thy will. We pray in His name. Amen. • :M 4—See Hunt 9 Quick Dru? McGiaw 13—Magic Rancb 5:16 5-Whirl; Birds •:.tO 4—Dragnet 0—Rebel 13—Sports 5:4(1 5-News.

Rain Below Average So Far Ottawa had 2.29 inches of rain during March, bringing the total precipitation since Jan. 1 to 3.27 inches. This is 1.88 inches short of average for the three-month period, and all three of the months were deficient in moisture. The January moisture of .82 of an inch was .55 short of the average of 1.37 inches. The Februray moisture of .16 of an inch was 1.08 inches short of the average of 1.24 inches. The month of March took up a little of the slack, but the 2.29 inches of moisture was still .25 of an inch short of the average of 2.54 for the month. At Worden, in southern Douglas County, Walter Schwarz reported that March moisture there was 1.64, which is .53 of an inch short of the March average of 2.17 for that weather station.

HILLCREST By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: How can curare be used in surgery without poisoning the patient?—MRS. C. . B.^ Curare is, in sufficient quantity, a poison, in that it paralyzes muscular activity. It does not damage the tissues, however. It kills by paralyzing, among other things the breathing muscles, and leath in that case, is from lack of oygen. (Some ndian tribes have used curare as an arrow poison.) ' . In small amounts, curare is a very valuable drug. It h e 1 p s to control severe convulsions and muscular spasms, for example It also is used, again in small amounts, to bring about greater muscular relaxation before surgery. Curare is only one of many drugs which are poison in large quantities, but useful In small amounts. Take atropine or belladonna, which in overdose can kill but in proper dose has saved housands of lives. Or sodium fluoride, which is a poison in large doses but at one part per million s put in drinking water to prevent tooth cavities. Phere are countless other examples. Dear Dr. Molner: What is meant by scars on the heart?—MRS. R.M.L. It could mean scars on heart valves, such as 'rom rheumatic fever. Or it could mean scaring of the heart muscle itself, which would be the waled area following a heart attack. Both of these will be clear to you if you'll read my booklet, "How to Take Care of Your Heart." (To receive a copy, write to Dr. Molner in care of Box 158, Dundee, HI, enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin.) Dear Dr. Molner: My four-year-old son doesn't talk. The only thing he has ever said is "ma-mama." He seems to understand everything we say, but is very stubborn and hard to make mind un- To Your Good Health Some Poisons Helpful less it is something he wants to do. He gets what he wants by pointing and grunting, and shakes his head for "no." What can be done to help him learn to talk?-MRS. W. By this age be should be talking a blue streak, of course. Or jabbering pretty well, at least. There's quite a bit of variation in youngsters so I dort't believe in getting worried too soon. But I'd have the little fellow examined. There could be some defect in his speech organs tha tneed correcting. If not, a child guidance center might be very helpful. Dear Dr. Molner: My son, 40, suffers from kidney stones. What causes them? Would a special diet help?—MRS. E.R. Kidney stones form basically because the urine becomes too highly saturated with certain chemicals — urates, oxalates and phosphates are among them. Then they begin precipitating out as solids, and become "stones." (there are other technicalities involved, but that's essentially it.) Drinking lots of water to keep the urine dilute is important in preventing more stones. A change in diet also can help, but must be chosen on the basis of study of the chemical content of the stones. This,may be done also to increase or reduce the acidity of the urine, but here again you need expert guidance to know which way to change. Dear Dr. Molner: Is it harmful to take hormones after removal of the female organs?—Mrs. H. M. L- • '' • On the contrary, it is sometimes necessary to give certain hormones temporarily after such an operation. They compensate for the sudden depletion of hormones which previously had been secreted by the ovaries. Shingles can be painful disease! To receive a copy of my pamphlet, "The Facts About Shingles," write Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 10 cents in coin to cover printing and handling.
