I OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Monday, April 8, 1963 Editorials Many Polio Misses No cases of paralytic polio have occurred in Kansas during the past 18 months. This statement was made recently by officials of the State Board of Health. It's a record of which Kansas can be proud. It results directly from the fact that this state has one of the highest •levels of polio immunization in the nation. : The "stamp out polio" campaign carried on in Kansas was well organized, promoted wholeheartedly on all levels and received support of the public. Here in Franklin County, according to the quarterly report put out by the county health department, two oral polio clinics were held, in January and in March. A total of 8900 doses of vaccine were administered. Two types of vaccine were given. Many of those included in the 8900 took both types. This And That by jph But this is a county of more than 20,000. It would be safe to guess that some 4,000 have taken both types. Some took their dose privately. What of the rest? Admirable as the job in Kansas has been, and as much effort as has been put out here to protect the public from this dread disease, one wonders if the majority of the people really want protection? As the saying goes about leading a horse to water, protective vaccine can be offered, but you can't make every one take it. Statistics would indicate that there are many who don't give a darn about themselves and their children. The lack of interest, while seated in human nature, is an unfortunate talking point for those who would organize our lives for us, those would make compulsory those things which should be accepted voluntarily. The Trouble With India CALCUTTA — Looking back over my month here. I surmise that most of India's problems are in the key of C. Not necessarily in this order, they are communications, cows, capital, caste, communalism, and communism. I will review them briefly: COMMUNICATION — There is no Indian language. There are 14 major recognized ones, and no one knows for sure how many dialects and minor tongues there are. No Indian can talk intelligibly with a majority of his 450 million countrymen. For nearly two centuries English was the "lingua franca" of the educated. In the anti British wave of sentiment which accompanied independence, English was M . to be done away with as the • language of government, and Hin- JPH di, spoken by no more than 40 per cent of the people, was to replace it. After 15 years the effort has failed. English has been found indispensable. As an example, 70 per cent of the business of parliament is still carried on in this tongue. The effort to foist Hindi on the majority has been so resented by the other language groups that it has led to serious rioting in some places. A weak compromise has been effected by deeming Hindi the official language and English a supplemental one. This is no solution, and it is doubtful that any common Indian language will be put into general use within the memory of any living Indian. COWS — Nobody knows how many million of these downbred animals there are roaming the Indian streets and vast countryside. Protected by religion, they are safe from slaughter. Their pickings are poor, but at least they seem to maintain their numbers. What they eat in one way or another could be transformed into human food. These sacred beasts are a menace to health, transportation, public order, and proper land utilization. Their only contribution to the Indian economy is that their dried dung fuels perhaps one- third of India's cooking fires. It would be much better used as fertilizer. But the hold of the Hindu religion is so strong that nothing can be done about these ubiquitous cows except deplore them. CAPITAL — No emergent nation today can lift itself into industrialization by pulling at its bootstraps. It must have capital, whether it obtains it through gifts, loans, or taxes so severe that the capital is squeezed out of the standard of living of the masses. Outside nations have advanced more to India than its inefficient government has known how to put into use. Domesitcally, capital has been diffi- ficult to obtain because of Indian traditions. The rich invest only in businesses which will pay them high profits, irrespective of the real need for the products produced. The poor put their savings into sterile gold either in the form of ornaments for their wives' wearing, or bars to be hidden away. The government's efforts to tap this gold hoard so far have been largely unavailing. CASTES — Castes have been eliminated by law, just as segregation legally has been wiped out in the United States. But while the rigid stratification of the society has been modified, it still remains in sufficient degree to prevent the best use of human resources for the unbuilding of the economy. Those of the highest caste continue to occupy top positions, by virtue of their birth, for which they are completely unqualified. Talent is lost because those who possess it have no opportunity to develop it. since they were born into the lowest caste, Ons day India will rise above castes, but it will be no sooner than when the United States brings an end to segregation. COMMUNALISM — Here people do not think of themselves proudly as Indians. Primarily they are members of some village, religious, language, geographical, or caste group. It is no exagera- tion to say that at times they will fight to the death in opposition to any central government program that runs contrary to their respective groups' life patterns and traditions. COMMUNISM — The Chinses Communists from without in attacking India have temporarily submerged the community spirit which so divided India, and there is a general support, if not always enthusiastic, of the defense program. Bui should China launch a new assault this spring, it is doubtful that India, with its own resources, can contain it . The Chinese invasion has had the effect of setting back the program of the Communists from within by several years. But the domestic Reds still are to be reckoned with, since a distinction has been made here between Peiping-oriented Communists. Moscow-directed Communists, and na tive Communists who take no orders from anyone outside. Communism is still strong in the states ol Kerala, West Bengal, and Orissa, and one day could gain enough strength to come into power through democratic elections. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Charlene, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elias New Richmond, was ill with whooping cough. Ten of the 12 children of Mrs. Merle Christenson — Imogene, Josephine, George, Delilah, Wil liam, Cecilia, Kathryn, Merle John, Orpha Belle and Charles — were ill with measles. The other two, David and Mary, had the measles in March, Heaviest snow ever recorded here in April was falling in Ottawa. It had reached a depth of eighi inches and was still- piling down. 50 YEARS AGO The C. W. Rambo Shoe Store at 214 S. Main was sold to C. J. Jasper. Marshall Ramsey resigned as undersheriff am returned to the Ottawa Hardware where he was formerly employed. Miss Nona Moore went to Kansas City to spent the summer with relatives. Prayer For Today Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. (John 10:32.) PRAYER: Father God, be Thou with us as we pass through life's storms. Though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, help us to fesr no evil, knowing Thou art with us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Workmen Get Pay Increase KANSAS CITY (AP)-Wage increases of 42 cents an hour over a three-year period were granted teamsters and carpenters in new contracts signed with the Builders Association of the Kansas City area Sunday. Members of the two unions have been getting an average of about 13.80 an hour. The average in the third year of the new pacts will be about |4.B. About 2,000 teamsters and 6,500 carpenters are affected. The contracts were hailed as major steps toward averting a shutdown of the construction industry. Three years ago a strike put 20,000 workers off the job 15 weeks. Still unsigned are contracts with the painters and the carpet and lineoleum layers. The old contract expires March 31. Leavenworth Coach Resigns LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) Frank Kinney, 31, announced Saturday he is resigning as basketball coach at Leavenworth high school to accept a position in business.

JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I read t letter in your column rom a woman whose infant daughter has a birthmark on the arm. It was described as being exactly like my daughter's "strawberry nevus," with which she was born. By .the time the baby was three months old it was the size of a quarter. It was on her wrist — raised and lumpy. We took her to a dermatologist. He gave her X-ray treatments for two years. He said that by the time she is six years old the mark would vanish. She is not quite five now, and it is completely gone — no scars or any sign. IVe are eternally grateful to the dermatologist. Perhaps you can forward my letter to the mother if you have her name in your files, or if not ust print my message.for parents with a simi- ar problem, so that they will know something can be done- about ugly birthmarks.—MRS. F.M You are right. Something can be done about ugly birthmarks. Not always the same thing, because it depends on the case. I don't save letters from readers. I accept them as confidential, and if I want to keep one, [ cut off the name and address with a pair of scissors. I caii't forward your letter to the mother — but anyway I can print it for all parents who are worried about birthmarks, stains, strawberry marks, moles and so on. Some of these marks fade spontaneously. Some are better left alone until a child is older, when hey can be removed by simple office surgery, or by plastic surgery, depending on location, or can be obliterated by electric needle. Freezing with dry ice techniques is also somtimes used. W. F. Whitmer to W. J. Robinson lots 78-Blk 4 Richmond; James L Young to William Bender, Lots 44-4648-Blk 2 Crestview Add.; Leo H.

To Your Good Health Can Remove Birthmarks Of all the kinds of "spots before the eyes," miM causes so much concern as the blemishef on • child's skin as seen by parents. Being a father myself, I understand. there are mighty few of these blemishes that cannot be corrected. Butas 1 said, hot all rt- spond to the same treatment. How does a physician choose which is He can't, without a great deal of technical' training — and that's why some doctors become •dermatologists, or skin specialists. I'm no' a dermatologist, However, if one of my children had had such a birthmark, I would h«v« gone to a specialist and asked him what to do. By virtue of his experience, he could have toU at a glance (or maybe after close ckaminatioli) what kind of blemish- and the best way to eras* it with the least sign afterward, if any. . _ He might have, as in the case of Mrs. P. M.'l daughter, been able to predict the time, within which, after treatment, the birthmark would disappear. , It takes skill to do this. But skill is available. Dear Dr. Molner: I have the beginning of • double chin I'm not fat, either. Is there any exercise or other method to prevent it?—R.K.- . A double chin comes from one of two things: Overweight, or a sag in the skin. Since you aren't fat, that leaves the other. No exercise will help this, but if it becomes a nuisance so far as appearance goes, plastic surgery can correct it. Dear Dr. Molner: I don't have a mother so I am asking you. Is it possible for a girl to become pregnant during her period?—F. No. Count your calories the easy way! To receiv* 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. ^ '3^'-- .••! - j .• 1 i: • J - ' < i 4 ™ NEW ELKS OFFICERS — Ottawa Elks Lodge No. M3's officers for 1M3 were installed tab week.
