1 OTTAWA HERALD fg ft Friday, April 5, 1963 Editorial* Steel Takes A Beating America's big steel industry took it on the chin last year. According to the American Iron and Steel Institute, profits during 1962 fell for the third straight year. Gross business was up only 5 per cent. Net profits were down 18 per cent from the previous year. In round dollars, the industry did $14 billion worth of business but made a profit of only $566.6 million, or somewhat less than 5 per cent. These may seem like astronomical figures to some, but look what other big business in America did last year. Twenty other manufacturing industries showed an increase of 16 per cent over 1961. Why this decline? Two main reasons. Increased employment costs. The level of steel demand wasn't as high as had been hoped. Employment costs went up with the last contracts the industry signed with This And That by jph the steelworkers union. Efforts to offset this cost increase with modest boosts in steel prices were blocked by Presidential pressure. Demand for American steel was hurt by foreign competition. The competition from foreign steel produced in countries with lower labor costs has made serious inroads on consumption of American steel. Who will suffer from this lower profit margin? First to feel it are the 1.2 million steel company stockholders. Next to feel it is Uncle Sam whose tax take from the industry is off 21 per cent from 1961. Next to feel it will be you. When Uncle Sam gets less in taxes he either has to make it up from the rest of us or boost the national debt. And this means the interest on the national debt will be higher. We must pay the interest. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel* 6-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Friday No New Sari For Easter? JPH CALCUTTA — As one American husband says to another^ from time to time, "It isn't the cost of a wife, it's the upkeep." Indian husbands have it much better, although I suspect they don't know when they are well off. To begin with, an Indian wile doesn't cost anything. On the contrary, she brings a dowry with her. Also, if her parents are affluent, her own jewels. A large diamond implanted on one side of her nose, because she thinks it much more beautiful there than it would be set in a ring on her finger, and various gold ornaments. Since the latter are 22 or 24 carat, they are as good as gold, which is considerably better than rupees. ; After acquisition, the upkeep on an Indian wife : is negligible. This is because the Indians have such an ancient and sophisticated civilization that they are impervious to style. Wives' costumes nev- , er are out of date. If they complained they had ' nothing to wear, they would not be chastised for • it, but would be met only with scornful silence, ; or the rejoiner that in this event they'd better . stay home. • Indian women wear saris. They have been wearing them for so many centuries that when the few emancipated ones among them get into dress; es, the dresses always look as though they didn't • fit. On the other hand, sari wearing is such a ' subtle art that when any western woman wraps • herself into one, she looks like a fool. : The sari may be of anything from the cheapest . cotton to the richest silk. In any event it will be , a strip of fabric about a meter wide and five ' meters long. It is wrapped around the waist with . the end of it thrown over one shoulder. There is ; still surpluss length either to dangle gracefully or I to put around the head as a hood. The off-shoulder • is covered with a blouse so short that there usual; ly is two or three inches of nice, brown skin • showing between the bottom of it and the wrap•ping around the waist Whether anything else is ?? included in the attire, other than sandals, how is r a stranger to know? ; There is high art to the wrapping of a sari. 'Twist it one way and it becomes as concealing •>as a nun's habit. Wind it another and there is little doubt in the mind of a beholder that there f is the fine figure of an Indian woman beneath. *• Saris, however, are not the only reason the 'upkeep on an Indian wife is no burden to her ; spouse. She may be a slave to her husband, but ' ihe isn't to her beautician. ' She may have plenty of servants, but she still • has enough work to do around the home to in- i sure her of a good complexion. She uses few cosmetics, and those poorly. Something should be , done about the pink lipstick for which she has a current fondness. It looks ludicrous against her dark skin. Then there is her hair. Even if her husband would permit, she is not one to delight in a do which takes redoing every week and feel the need for a different do very month or so. Her gods gave her long, straight black hair, and who is she to tamper with divinity? On the contrary, she takes the greatest pride in it. As her distaff ancestors have done for time beyond reckoning, she parts it in the center, combs it straight back on each side, and plaits il into a long braid that hangs down the center of her back. If it is long enough for her to sit on the end of it, she feels no end superior to her sisters whose hair hangs no longer than their sacroiliacs. From a utilitarian viewpoint, Indian wives offer many fine examples for American women. Saris, anyone? Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Ottawa junior and senior high schools had a total enrollment of 1,188. The enrollment was divided this way: 7th, 8th and 9th grades, 669; sophomores, juniors and seniors, 513; post-graduate students, 6. Dan Wolken took over the barber shop at IK W. 2nd from John Carrier to whom he had sold it previously. G. A. Blewett went to Parsons as resident en gineer for the state highway department. 50 TEARS AGO Mrs. Sophia Parkinson, 82, died at the home o her son, J. H. Parkinson at Pomona. She hac been a resident of Franklin County since 1857. Mrs. Ed Lister returned to her home at Le Loup after visiting with her mother, Mrs. J. F Stephenson. The Princeton school building sufered heavily damag in a wind storm. Prayer For Today Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord. (Romans 12:10-11) PRAYER: Dear Lord, with contrite hearts we implore Thy forgiveness for our weariness an< our weakness in serving Thee. When worldly af fairs obsess us and our Christian zeal burns low may Thy Spirit grant us renewal. For Jesus sake.

JOSEPH 6. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: It's almost impossible these days to buy any vegetable or fruit that has not been sprayed with a chemical bug killer. Don't you feel that continued use of insecticides and pesticides will harm our food supply and endanger our health? I have heard that a lot of people are dying from this kind of thing already.— Mrs. R. No, I don't think they will "harm our food supply and endanger our health." Quite the opposite. Nor is there any basis for wild stories that "people are dying from this kind of thing already." Naturally these chemicals must be used properly, and we should wash the produce before we eat it. (Careful distributors are Dr. Nobler . conscientious about washing before the products ever reach the grocery stores.) Naturally people using these chemicals for farms, gardens and orchards must handle them with due caution. Believe me, the problem hasn't been overlooked. It has been studied very carefully. I have never seen or heard of a single death from proper use of any agricultural product. Carelessness, is another matter. People are poisoned by not being careful, just as they constantly are being poisoned by misuse of cleaning compounds, household chemicals, and even aspirin. Last year, 89 deaths were caused by insecticides and pesticides improperly used. In the same time, 150 were killed by improper use of ordinary aspirin. Federal and other health authorities test all such materials and go to great pains to see thit peoplt are informed of the right way to handle them. These chemicals simply are not a danger to our health. And our food supply? It is vasly more abundant because we can control insects and pests. For the simplest sort of example, some people have an apple free in the back yard, and wonder why the fruit is wormy or stunted. An orchardman would tell them why fast enough: "When did you spray it last?" Since in different localities, food may come from many sources, the neighbor's next-door garden, or from a huckster, just keep the one safety rule in mind: Wash everything. Then stop worrying. Dear Dr. Molner: I am having a terrible time with detergent burns on my hands. I have tried many salves, but with no success,-* You evidently are one ol the people who are overly sensitive and your skin erupts. Different brands may be less annoying. If not, try ordinary soap. Or, perhaps the soundest answer in your case is to wear gloves'whenever using detergents. Some stores have them with a cotton lining. Or get a loose pair of rubber gloves and wear plajn cotton gloves underneath so that your hands won't sweat and the rubber won't irritate. Note to G.P.: I question whether even t*e exertion of trying to push a tractor would cause a "heart condition." Either the trouble developed otherwise, or the real damage is a muscular strain of some sort. Exact diagnosis will guide you to the proper steps to take. Fat! My leaflet, "The Lost Secret of Reducing," tells how to get rid of it the easy way. For your copy write to Dr. Molner, Box 118, Dundee, 111., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coint to cover cost of handling. Tonight's TV Highlights This is sing-along night, of course, and the program will offer some soloing by Leslie Ug- gams, Gloria Lambert and maybe some others. It is on Channel 4 at 7:30. Earlier for the western fan who likes westerns so well he ev en enjoys re-runs, the "Rawhide" show will be "Incident of the Little Fishes," with Burgess Meredith as the guest star. This'll be on Channels 5 and 13 at 6:30. At the same time, but on Channel 4, Don Ameche's International Showtime will present a show taped behind the Iron Curtain in Hungary. It is the "Magnificent Magyar Circus." Jack Paar has a good line-up of guests for his show on Channel 4 at 9. Included will be Peter Ustinov, Nat King Cole, Bob Newhart, and others. 6-O. B.

SMITH The Uniform Sunday School lesson for April 7: "JESUS FULFILLS HIS MISSION." Mark 14:10 through 15:41. There is something just a bit comforting in the fact that some of the bitterest cups of life cannot be removed. At least one was not removed even for Jesus. It is easy to think, when everything is going wrong, that we are the victim of life, that no one else has every .had it so bard, that God !*!**•* w f cal ' failed*. And moat of u disposed t( k that we ive a right to SSHTh t that life is going to be w for us. By that we mean, course, that life is to be easy i of Mark from tfciit vMk'a lesson has been taken was composed just when the storm clouds were beginning to gather over the young Christian Church. Peter, the old Galilean fisherman, had suffered martyrdom. And, though we have no historical record of the fact, it must be assumed that the Apostle Paul had met his death at the hands of Rome. A terrible threat was in the air. Rome was never inclined to deal gently with revolt or treason, and the Christians had been maneuvered into the place that they were being made to appear to be enemies of the Empire. At least one purpose of the Gospel of Mark was to nerve the Christians to face up to their terrors, and even to their death, with courage and fortitude. The story of Jesus' terrible death is told as if to say, "If your Lord could not escape death, how are you to hope for any escape? Look how he died—courageously, without flinching. That's the way you must die—unafraid." No one joined the church in those days with the hope that it might improve their business chances, their social standing, or their good reputation. The Christians knew full well what they were getting into, and it sometimes appeared as if they were inviting martyrdom. This was not because they enjoyed pain, but because they so greatly appreciated their salvation, that even death did not deter them. There is a lesson here that needs to be learned with great care. There are some things that faith cannot do for us. It is not an umbrella guaranteed to protect us against everything uncomfortable, unpleasant, inconvenient. Our world is just a bit like a building I visited some time ago. It was an enormous structure, designed to accommodate two or three hundred tenants, and it was just far enough along to admit visitors. But a sign near the entrance said, "You visit here at your own risk." Our world is in the process of building, developing, expanding growing. And it is impossible to live in that kind of a world without incurring risks, just as it was impossible to visit that half- finished business block without taking some chances. A risk-less world would be a terribly tame affair. There would be no zest in living, if one took no chances, faced no obstacles, knew that everything was going to come out all right no matter how stupidly we managed our affairs. The little lad was right when he said of a discarded puzzle. "There's no fun in it if it's too easy." There is something very serious in the question that rises in connection with Jesus' appeal that the cup might pass from him. Only a little while before he had warned his disciples that they might have to drink of a cup that was too bitter for them. And here he is asking to be excused. But these momentary fears, hesitancies, and tremblings do not represent the last word of life. It is true that Jesus asked to be excused. But when it became necessary, he drank the cup to its dregs. There is no sin in trying to avoid pain, in quailing before danger, in looking doubts in the eye. These are some of the agonies of life which can never be avoided. They are the experiences tha t inject iron into the blood, and power into character. There is an old saying on the desert that "Nothing ever grows where the sun always shines." It takes some of the clouds and the storms to make a land productive, and it takes a certain amount of risk to make a life magnificent. It ought to be of great assurance to us, in the hour when we are drinking from some bitter cup, to know that Jesus drank the bitterest of all, and came through triumphantly.
