">.' I*;;- OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Saturday, April 8, 1993 Saturday Notebook What do boys eat? The answer to this question, if you ask members of the Loyal Neighbors, is plenty. This HD unit annually serves the noon meal for the Future Farmers of America when they spend a day at Ransomville on the district dairy judging contest. This year, out of curiosity, we asked the members of the unit just what they served the 160 youths present. Here is the answer: 25 dozen beef sandwiches, 15 boxes of candy bars, 25 dozen doughnuts, 40 pies, five gallons of beans, 224 cartons of milk and an untabulated amount of potato chips. No one went hungry. What's more, an hour after lunch the lads polished off a couple of 5-gallon cans of chocolate milk. The inroads of big government into modern-day life often is cause for concern. It also has its humorous aspects. Local realtor L. C. Geiger recently came up with a dinning from the Polk County Ledger in Wisconsin which you might find amusing. It read: This And That by jph "These government agencies are always good for a laugh. Years ago the Mc- Clains borrowed $1,325 from what was then known as the rehabilitation office. I thought it was a business proposition at the time but they moved right in on us and started to tell us how to live. "Some school-fresh girl came out and started to tell my wife how to keep house. One of the things she wanted us to do was keep our eggs in a dish on the kitchen table. Put in a dozen at a time and then we could always tell how many we used by counting the remainder. "We had 800 hens and they were in full flush or whatever hen are in when they are laying good, and, consequently, we were getting over a. case of eggs a day. Some days up to 500 eggs. We took every available dish we had and everything we could beg or steal, filled the entire kitchen with about four cases of eggs and called her to come out, we needed counseling on an urgent problem. I often wondered whatever became of that girl. She never came back. Laff-A-Day A «ln» Fntuni Syndlemle, loc, 19«3. World ri|Mi nMrv*L "Now, for heaven's sake—<Jon't say anything that will make him mad." Winter Was Bad On Wheat What Of India's Future? JPH CALCUTTA — The past two weeks business throughout India has been badly shaken, if not demoralized in some sectors. Most goods must be repriced, and for the moment their sellers are not sure what the new quotations should be. While there is no evidence of scare buying, the papers have reported some hoarding of supplies on the wholesale level. I only know that the Charminar cigarettes 1 have been smoking here have doubled in price and now cost me a fraction over four cents for a package of 10. It all comes from a series of new tax laws, soon to be in effect. The finance minister has really thrown the book at the payers. Announced are new and higher sales taxes. Import duties. More than doubled income taxes in some brackets. Required purchases of government bonds with a certain percentage of earnings. An excess profits tax of 50 per cent on earnings beyond six per cent. The result will be for the Indian populace to pay more taxes on the one hand and higher prices on the other. Estimates are the effect will be a cut of at least 10 per cent in real income. And the Indian man on the street had an average income of no more than $70 a year as it was. Indian business, it goes without saying, has been hard at work on plans to evade. The back-breaking levies are a burden the Chinese have placed on the Indians. It is a particularly onerous one because the motherland is not being invaded to kindle the fierce fire of patriotism. The Chinese have withdrawn from their advance positions. A cease-fire is in effect. For the past four months there has been only a cold war. The arms and armies the new taxes are to pay for may never be used. The armament from the Indian viewpoint is essential, but in providing it this country may be playing into the Chinese hands. Who, through history, has known the true designs of the Chinese, whatever the politics of their rulers of the moment? Perhaps Peking's sly game is to keep India under such a threat of war that it will wreck its economy through defense expenditures and drift into Communism by way of internal disorder rather than foreign attack. The possibility certainly exists. India was having hard enough going before the defense necessities were imposed. While, since independence, it has made remarkable progress in building industry and extending essential services, between population increase and inflation the improvement in the standard of living has been trivial. And the plight of the masses must be bettered somehow, or one day India will have some entirely different form of government, which will be some type of totalitarianism rather than democratic or semi-socialist as the present one is. I'm not writing India off. Neither am I too sanguine. Given the greatest efficiency, India's problems today would be overwhelming. But India is not efficient. In its administration it is inept, procrastinating, and indecisive. "Our greatest problem is corruption, and it runs from top to bottom," a Calcutta editor told me only today. Foreign aid alone is not an answer, because India, for the reasons cited above, is not making use of all the advances available to it today. What is the future of India? I don't know and I doubt that anyone else does. Time will tell. But to the Indians time means so little. AuJd Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO The new streamliner passenger trains had caused an increase of 12.14 per cent in the Santa Fe passenger business during the past year. E. V.

(AP)-Severe winter killing of wheat in parts of south central and southwestern Kansas was reported today by Kansas State University agronomists. Dr. A. W. Pauli and Dr. Fred C. Stickler, after a two day field survey, said many fields have been destroyed and the loss in some counties may run as high as 50 per cent of the total crop. Heaviest hit were Meade, Ford, Seward, Hodgeman, Haskell, Comanche, Finney and Pawnee counties. The agronomists said the damage occurred in mid - February when, after reaching into the 80s, temperatures plunged to 10-15 degrees below zero within 40 hours. At the time the crop had no snow cover and the bitter cold was heightened by high winds. Joins KSU Staff MANHATTAN, Kan (AP)-Dr. James Jaret Lewis has been named director of admissions a< Kansas State University, effective July 1. Lewis has been assistant director . of admissions at Pittsburg State College for two years. To Your Good Htalth Drugs Help By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr Molner: My husband has pain and stiffness ir his tight elbow, and two doctors have diagnosed it as tendonitis. One suggested X-ray treatment and the other cortisone. My husband finally consented to have a cortisone shot, which helped him only temporarily. Should he try the X-ray treatment, or more cortisone? He isn't haying anything done now because he believes his condition is chronic and he "must learn to live with it. " Mrs. J.P. I wouldn't be warranted in trying to decide an "either-or" questions concerning a patient I've never seen, but here is a fact to keep in mind: Cortisone is effective in these cases. However more than one injection mey be required. If one shot afforded temporary relief, that's a good sign. Heat and salicylates (aspirin) also are very effective. Why not at least make use of whatever gives relief? That is no more than simple logic. Why suffer when you don't have to? True, tendonitis (inflammation of a tendon) might be slow to cure, but I can't agree that it necessarily is chronic or something you "have to learn to live with" until a reasonable amount of treatment has been obtained. There are ailments you have to learn to live with, and sometimes a doctor has a rough time in persuading a patient of that fact. But here it's the other way around. One injection of cortisone already has given temporary relief, and there are D». Motoet other means yet to be tried. (The heal and aspirin.) . . , There's another step which at times is helpful in cases resembling this one. Gout should first br ruled o||,. (Doubtless in this particular case thi« has already been done.) , "Gout, sometimes settles in a tendon, as .well ar other places, Tests for excess uric, acid five a ready indication as to whether gout is involved., If it is. the obvious place to start is in treating the gout, rather than just its symptoms. Dear Dr. Molner; I would l*e acopy df your leaflet on "Pre-Menstrual Blues," and enclose a long, stamped self-addresse<j envelope ajnd 5 cents in coin for it . . Also can you tell me what to do about my ovulation problem? I have such pain. I also swell so much that I'm hardly ever the si«e I'm supposed to be—Mrs, E. W. Excessive swelling (which is from accumulation of water in the system) is very often a part of the menstrual "blues," and the leaflet will help you with that problem. It can be controlled. As to pain at the time of ovulation, some women have none; with others it can be disabling. It is called "mittelschmerz," or "nrnUpain." There is no simple solution, but I suggest that you see a gyneocologist (specialist jn women's diseases) because at least the pain can be alleviated. However, I wouldn't guarantee that you can get rid of the discomfort entirely. Count your calories the easy way! To receive a copy of my pamphlet, "The Calorie Chart,' write Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover handling. ^^^^^___^ Civic Improvement Fund To Honor Former Ottawans Wellsville Legion Plans Egg Hunt WELLSVILLE — Announcement was made by J.

Miller and his widow, who now lives in Battle Creek, Mich., will be remembered for a long time as result of action taken recently at Lansing, Mich. Miller was best known here as Bert Miller. In the early part of the century he was a co-owner with R. A. Harris of the Ottawa Herald, father of John P. Harris, Hutchinson. The Millers left Ottawa in 1914, goind to Battle Creek, Mich., where he continued in the work of publishing newspapers. Recently his sop, Robert B. Miller, editor and publisher of the Enquirer and News of Battle Creek, along with other members of his family, established a foundation, named in honor of his parents. The foundation will receive and dispense the income frojn 10,750 shares of Federated Publications stock, turned over to the foundation by Mra. Louise B. Miller, of Battle Creek, widow of Bert Miller. The present value of the shares assigned to the foundation is estimated at more than a half- million dollars. Income from dividends is to be expended for community betterment. The income currently amounts to about $25,000 a year. Under the articles of incorporation for the Albert L. and Louise B. Miller Foundation, Inc., the foundation may give, receive and administer property and money for "scientific, educational literary, religious and charitable purposes, all for the public welfare." The board of trustees of the foundation include Robert B. Miller, Katherine M. Johnston and Roger N. Turner, a Battle Creek attorney. "For more than 65 years of active newspaper work Bert Mjljer believed that a newspaper existed to serve its community and that a newspaperman should be an active participant in civic affairs," Robert B. Miller said, in commenting on establishment of the foundation. Miller explained that Mrs. Miller had established a trust fund designed to create a living memorial to Mr. Miller but others of the family felt that it seemed more suitable that a foundation in the name of both Mr. and Mrs. Miller he established, since both had been interested over a long period of years in a variety of charitable services.
