OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, April 9, IMS Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel* 6-13, CBS ChanneJ 9, ABC •Halt State's Trash Problem , Spring has its joys. And its chores, too. ot the least of which is cleaning the of the debris which collects all win. - When the Kansas Highway Depart- »,ment cleans its yard this spring it will : haul off truckloads of trash. Last spring 5 40 truckloads of trash, bottles and cans were hauled from along state highways and the interstate system. Removing debris from along the highways is not, however, a one-shot proposition for the state. It is a continuing project. In fact, the highway commission spends about $125,000 a year just to collect trash flipped out of car windows. This And That by jph Not included in this figure are damages to mowing machines and to motor cars which run over debris carelessly left on or near highways. The law provides a fine up to $100 or 30 days for those found guilty of littering public roads. The law, however, is exceedingly difficult to enforce. The problem of highway littering won't be solved until everyone is aware of the cost and adopts the attitude that the roadside is actually somebody's yard. You wouldn't dump your trash into your neighbor's yard, would you? Why, then, along the highway? Not Paradise, But Pleasant JPH SINGAPORE — It's like coming back to civilization. No sacred cows or goats in the streets. No people sleeping full length on the sidewalk. No long-unrepaired holes in the pavement. No bullock carts. No piles of uncollected rubbish everywhere. No buildings in acute stage of disrepair. No burning bright Indian sun. At first blush Singapore seems ; like heaven, or at least as much "'like heaven as anyone reason's ably can expect to encounter in the Orient. Clean streets. Streams of relatively new cars, with even a few mammoth Chevrolets looming among the Mor- rises, flats, Volkswagens, and Austins. Well - kept homes with lawns and gardens in keeping. Pleasant parks with no animals running loose in them. There are palatial movie houses. Supermarktes. Modern hotels, although of small size and with an insufficient number of rooms for current demands, unfortunately. Stately government buildings in Georgian style grouped, as they would be, around the grounds and clubhouse of the Cricket Club. An anglican cathedral, to say nothing of Hindu temples, mosques, Chinese shrines, and a Seventh Day Adventist church. A compact business area with mostly new "skyscrapers" running up to 20 stories and still more under construction. Several miles of docks out from which hundreds of craft, ranging all the way from luxury liners on world cruises to samipans up from the islands of Ino- nesia, are anchored. By day the background is verdant, tropical, and lush. There are palms of every variety, brightly flowering trees in rich reds and yellows, banana trees with their broad, light green leaves. Vines and flowers I can't identify. Rich expanses of thick grass. Here and there bits of jungle still may remain, but most of the outlying residential sections of the city look as tidy and well-kept as London suburbs. By night Singapore sparkles with neon signs, alternately flashing messages in English and Chinese, plus a few lettered in Malay and Arabic for added interest. Streets are clean, both of rubbish and of "the homeless and sleeping on the sidewalks. There is a sense of law and orderliness, even though the crime statistics do not support the impression. Even though, Singapore lies only a few miles north of the equator, its weather gives little cause for complaint. The days see temperatures in the mid-Ms, and if the humidity is high, there are usually scattered clouds to break the sun, and a breeze refreshingly in from the sea. At night the mercury doesn't fall too far, but with the help of the breeze 8 coat is by no means uncomfortable. Singapore is not only pleasing to the eye; it gives the impression of.•being vibrant, progressive and prosperous. Even if it's population is nearly 75 per cent Chinese, it has an international air, as it would have from being port of call for ships from the seven seas. While scenically it is not nearly so eye-catching as Hong Kong, it has many points of similarity. Here, too, a man can have a suit of excellent English fabric tailored overnight, by probably as many as thirty willing hands, for no more than 990. Both cities have a far greater appearance of stability and success than the political facts warrant. There are what would seem to be a surplus of banks and trading firms, each with its own imposing building. Rich British, Chinese, and even a few Japanese and Italian merchants, most of whom presumably are getting richer. There are the poor, also, in far greater numbers, but their costs of clothing and shelter are negligible, and the fruit, vegetables, and fish offered them in the market stalls are tempting in appearance and not excessively priced. Singapore has its dark aspects, of course, but for one who is not inclined to delve into them, it is a pleasant place for a few days' break. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Miss Lormine Peacock went to Lawrence to be the weekend guest of Misses Margaret Stookey and Sallie Harris at the Kappa Alpha Theta so- orority house. W. A. Snydcr had an unusual rose bush in bloom at his home, 1130 S. Main. He had planted the bush in water, with chemicals added, but no soil, in February and the bush had two blooms by early April Miss Olive Dickson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs J. F. Dickson, of 1022 S. Main, was elected president of the Valkyr sorority at Missouri Valley College, Marshall, Mo. She succeeded Miss Leva Lash, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. V. Lash, 115 E. 7th, in the position. 50 TEARS AGO County commissioners made an inspection trip to the old cable suspension bridge over Tauy Creek on East Logan Street Road. It was reported the cables were unsafe. An argument was in progress in Ottawa over the question of who owned the courthouse grounds There was a movement for placing benches on tiie grounds and the county commissioners opposed such a move. The ones wanting benches were advised to talk to the city officials because the courthouse grounds were in the city of Ottawa City Attorney B. F. Bowers and County Attorney F. A. Waddle checked into the records and came up with the statement that "the courthouse grounds, bounded by Main and Hickory and 3rc and 4th Streets, belong to the county and the County Commissioners have jurisdiction." Prayer For Today They took Jesus, and he went out, bearing his own cross, to the place called the place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew Golgotha. (John 19:17. RSV.) PRAYER. Give us the calm heart, our Father to accept the dark valleys of life, that we may be worthy to know and worship Thee. In the Redeemer's name we ask. Amen.

(AP) - Reaching the century mark in age usually is a source of pride, but not so for John Murphy, who, according to official records, will observi his 100th birthday today. "I still think I'm only 98 no matter what other people say,' Murphy told a reporter. He credits "hard work, I guess' for his long life, but candidly ad mits he didn't like any of his many jobs. To Your Goo'd Health' Value In By DK JOSEPH 6. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: A friend claims alcohol has ood valu*,' whereas I say that it has no vitamins ir minerals — only calories or units of heat. He argueu that people live on alcohol for— a week or more. I maintain that they do not live on alcohol but are merely fasting; that is, they ould live for a week or more without food or alcohol. I have read of people who have gone for month without food, so the argument, mat they erive nourishment from alcohol simply because Key drink it for a week doesn't convince me. What is youi answw?^iL.f. I hope you didn't make any >ets with your friend; because if you did, you have lost. Yes, alcohol has food value. You are right that it has no vitamins and no minerals but does have calories. However, calories represent food value. Oh, how they represent food value! Too many calories make you fat. They are stored as fat if you consume more than you use up as heat or energy. A drink of straight whiskey can mean 100 or more calories. Cocktails and highballs can be higher, and some of the ancy drinks with sweet mixes can be even more. That's why some people keep gaining on "reducing diets." They forget to keep track of their drinks. The heavy drinker who goes on a week-long bender doesn't eat because alcohol gives him enough calories — food value or nourishment — to destroy his appetite. True, he ought to eat while he is drinking. So far as that goes, there is no excuse for such drunks. For health, we need vitamins, minerals, and above all protein, none of which is present in alcohol. But that does not mean that alcohol has no food value. The same would be true if you ate nothing but sugar: No vitamins, no protein, no mineral*. A week-long candy binge would be very harmful to the health, too. Not as bad as an alcoholic binge, because alcohol, in addition to containing food value, is also a drug (a depressant) an intoxicant and destroyer of inhibitions, judgment and coordination, and, in sufficient concentration, a Dr. Hotaet Sheer calories are food. Athletes at times have eaten lumps of sugar for the quick energy they :give. ... .;••;•.:. .; - '. But we need more than calories because we need more than sheer energy. We need protein to build our tissues, minerals to keep our bone* strong, vitamins and traces of minerals which are important, despite their small quantities, because they are the chemical "regulators" which keep our bodies functioning correctly. Trying to live on alcohol alone (or sugar alone, or some other single food items) would be like trying to run a car by adding nothing but gasoline. You could do it for/ time, but presently the car would be^n to fall apart for lack of oil, grease, water, air ir. the tires, and so on. Dear Dr. Molner: I am a girl of 12 and frequently have pains in my ankles, knees and wrist. What causes them and what can be done?—L.L. Growing youngsters can have such pains because of too imr.h activity and not enou"'. (They aren't "growing pains.") A possibility is arthritis — it can occur at a young age. Rheumatic fever is another. T trust you'll get checked by your family physician. The first thing I listed is easily taken care of by more rest. The other two are serious and need attention without delay. To Mrs. W. M. J.: Yes, surgery is the only solution for a rectal fistula. Of all the problems that pediatricians encounter in children, pinworm is the commonest.

Oscars For Him, Anne Fifth Time Charm For Gregory Peck By JAMES BACON AP Movie-Televiskm Writer SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP)Gregory Peck, a four-time loser in the Oscar finals, and Anne Bancroft, an actress Hollywood once ignored, are winners of the movies best actor and best actress awards for 1962. "Lawrence of Arabia" was named the year's best film Monday night at the 35th annual Academy Awards ceremony, and a grandfather, Ed Begley, and a teen-ager, Patty Duke, won best supporting actor and actress honors. Miss Duke, who played the child Helen Keller in "The Miracle Worker," is the first juvenile ever to win an Academy Award. Shirley Temple, among others, have received honorary awards in the past. , In a glamor-packed setting at Santa Monica Civic. Auditorium, tiie taciturn Peck confessed that he came to the show "prepared to be a graceful loser." "I'm just a little stunned about the whole thing. It really staggered me," Peck said. Then he pulled out a gold pocket watch from his vest. "Harper Lee mailed it to me just this morning. She said it belonged to her father and he wore it for 80 years and she wanted me to wear it to the Academy Awards. She also said she dropped it in the gravy when she was 6 years old. I was clutching it when my name was called." Miss Lee is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning "To Kill a Mockingbird," based on childhood reminiscences of her father, a small-town Southern lawyer. Peck played the father in the movie. War I hero won seven Oscars for sound, film editing, music score, color art direction, cinematography, best director (Britisher David Lean) and best movie. The best song award went to "Days of Wine and Roses" from the movie of the same name. The music was written by Henry Man* chini and the lyrics by Johnny Mercer. Bancroft, who portrayed Annie Sullivan, the tenacious teacher of the blind and deaf Helen Keller in "The Miracle Worker," was busy Monday night on the New York stage — where she became a star after years in B movies. Joan Crawford accepted the Oscar for her. Early in the night, as technical awards were announced, it looked like a sweep for "Lawrence of Arabia." It almost was.
