Following re-election for the third Crumps, the Boss Pendergasts the Longs tune, the mayor of one of Kansas' larger of Louisiana, to name a few. This is true in any business or profession. Lawyers have been known to be shady, doctors abortionists and bankers embezzlers. Newspapermen have cities said the campaign just completed was his last. He wouldn't go through it again, he said. The campaign was too dirty. It was an experience he wouldn't want repeated. This is a sad commentary on politics been labeled "yellow journalists" on occasion. The sins of a few, however, don't re- which is the business of government. Recently, in Topeka, Gov. Nelson Rocke- suit in condemnation of the entire group, feller recalled that he was asked why he Unfortunately, this doesn't usually apply got into politics, it's such a dirty game, to the field of politics. We are prone to judge all who play the game by the few His answer was: politics is an avenue of service. Many good persons make a living being public servants. Many who who break the rules. Laff-A-Day don't need politics as a means to make a living enter this field because of an interest in government, the desire to serve and the challenge that politics offers. Occasionally there are those who give politics a dirty name, such as the Boss This And That by jph And this is because as individuals our consciences hurt us. We are guilty o apathy, disinterest. When s;overnmen goes amiss, fails to accomplish what i should, we try to shift the blame to "dirty politicians" when, in truth, it belongs to those of us who failed to care enough to take an active part in the important game of politics. Singapore Is A Jewel SINGAPORE — In 1819 Sir Stafford Raffles made the best real estate deal since th« purchase of Manhattan Island. For 8,000 Malayan dollars he bought from the Sultan of Johore the island ••n which this city is built. He made an additional gift of 5,000 to the Sultan's secretary to make certain His Highness would not we!"' 1 on the transcation Sir Stafford's employer, the East India Company, may have thought he was careless with its money. For his expenditure he had obtained only 225 square miles of mangrove swamps and low, jungle-covered hills on which a few Malay villages were located. But Sir Stafford had vision and a fine sense of geography. JPH He recognized that the straits which separate Singapore by only a short distance from the mainland provided a fine, natural harbor. He saw that a city here would be a natural terminal for all the trade from the East Indies, as its hundreds of islands then were called. Its position made it a key way stop for all ships, for coaling and the transshipment of goods between Europe and the Far East. It would be a highly strategic defense point to maintain Britannia's rule of the waves. Tune has proved Raffles right on all points. As a memorial to him ,a city of more than V/z millions stands here today. It is a rich city, too, even if its docks and its growing industries still are not able to provide sufficient employment and that creates a considerable amount of political unrest. It is a charming place as well, where the British spirit of tidiness and order still prevails over the Oriental indifference to such things. Away from the teeming business area, the picturesque Chinese slums, and the public housing projects which manage to have the characterless- ness that such things do, from Moscow to Minneapolis, much of the island has the appearance of a tropical park. The patches of jungle which still remain only emphasize the mannerliness: that man has wrought At every turn of the good network of roads winding over the island between rows of tall trees to provide welcome shade, there is H new and usually pleasing vista. With a population of more than 7,000 to the square mile, crowding is to be anticipated; but actually the land has been used rather lavishly and there still is much of it waiting development. There art large suburban areas where each house, generally western in style but modified to the need for greater ventilation in the tropics, stands on its own spacious, well landscaped grounds. There are all manner of British military installations, likely maintained more *rom habit than for nuclear war needs, and strewn generously over whole hillsides. There are long rows of palatial mansions occupying the choicest locations on come of the water front. Singapore also finds ample space for mangrove swamps in which crocodiles, pythons, and 39 othei varieties of snakes live in such abundance tha dealing in reptile skins is an important business Botanical gardens where more than l.OJO types o orchids are grown. Small rubber plantations. Mut flats where shrimp are grown commercially. Patch es of banana trees and coconut palms. There <s also room for three golf courses, one of which boasts 27 holes. A polo field. Innumer able Malay villages of roughly built houses under thatched roofs. An astonishing number of schools yet such is the demand of them that most operate three shifts a day. Spreading Chinese cemeteries Well-spaced rows of modest bungalows in whicl army officers and certain public officials live. The most astonishing thing about this theoretically crowded island is how much elbow room there is and how attractively it has been arranged AuJd Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Marilyn Orr, 10, of Wellsville, was ill with scar let fever. The Lutheran Church donated a piano to thi county infirmary. Ted Reinhart caught four fine bass at Ott dam in the Marais des Cygnes river. 50 YEARS AGO Ottawa ended its council form of governmen and changed to the three-man commission form The town had been governed by «i mayor and eight councilmen.

Assure us that victory will be ours as we pray in sincerity, "Not my will, bu! thine, be done." In Jesus' name we ask. Amen. Dick Crawford Looking For Gravy Seed By DICK CRAWFORD The gardening season brings many people into the Franklin County Agricultural Extension office, seeking advice and looking for pamphlets on how to plant what to plant and when. But one thing has the agents puzzled — people keep asking them if they fcave any gravy seed. The explanation may be that the young daughter of Don Brown, 9 g r i c u 1- fUfil agent, Mid recently she going to potatoes *ravy in was quoted Herald. !,,« DICK Crist, Franklin County home economics agent, has started a weekly column in The Herald, our editor has asked readers to send in suggestions on what "Rosy" should name it. Ag Agent Don Brown calls his column "Brown's Bylines" and Ross Nelson, 4-H agent, calls his "4-H in Franklin County." Rosemary has held up writing a column for quite a long time while trying to come up with a good, catchy standing "kicker," She got a few suggestions from us (nothing much), but her colleague Ross Nelson punned one that's really funny. Ross said, in view of the fact that Miss Crist is home ec agent, maybe the best name would be Burned to a 'Crist. 1 " Year in and year out, we hear all kinds of safety slogans and advice. Everyone hears the safety talks and reads the National Safety Council's sound advice, but every now and then — really quite frequently — some of us forget, or just get neglectful. After an unfortunate experience on the dangerous turn of Coat's Corner about a mile and a half southeast of Princeton, a drive, who nearly demolished his car, told an officer his recommendation for avoiding an upset there. "Don't go too damned fast," he advised. That man is right in his advice, but the Kansas Highway Safety Division has felt that way for a long time. It has even erected a sign fairly close to the corner that in a little reads: says less the same thing harsh tone.

JOSEPH G. MOLNER I am being taken to task, quite legitimately, by technically • minded readers who protest that syphilis can be congenital, but cannot (as I incorrectly said) be hereditary. The way the subject arose was via a letter from a man with the disease who wanted to know if it "could be hereditary," because he knew of no way, othei than that, by which he could have contracted it. What he meant boils down to this: Could he have been born with the disease? And the answer is "yes." A child can be bom with syphilis. Doubtless I should then have explained that there is a difference between congenital and hereditary. Heredity governs our basic constitution. We tend to be tall or short because our ancestors Or. Mnlner were. Color of hair, eyes and skin is r. matter of heredity. Some diseases are hereditary For a couple of examples, heredity strongly influences diabetes; it passes on such defects as hemophilia, or failure of the blood to clot properly A congenital defect, on the other hand, is one that occurs through some accident or influence during pregnancy. Consider the "thaiidomide babies." They started out to be normal, but thf> r'njg intervened, and caused a deformity before the babies were born — and after they had acquired their hereditary traits. Aside from the matter of using the correct word, all this becomes important to- us, in a practical sense. A child is never bom with syphilis simply because the parents may, at one time, have had it. A child can be born with syphilis for only one reason: The germ is present while the baby is still in the womb. Syphilis is a germ-caused disease. There is no way of getting it without transmission of the germ. For yean the proportion of babies bom with syphilis has been from one to two per cent, but there is no real excuse for this except that people do hot take proper measures for adequate treatment. This risk alone is sufficient reason why women should begin getting medical care as soon u they are' pregnant, rather than waiting until the time of birth is near* If syphilis is detected, treatment with antibiotics or other drugs can protect .the child from the disease even though, in some cases, the mother may not be entirely cured. Treatment after birth can protect the child, too, and the number of infant deaths from this cause had declined to a very low figure. If a woman does not have the disease and is not exposed to the syphilis germ throughout the time of pregnancy, her child will not have it. She may have had it, and been cured. The child still cannot be born with the disease because the germ is not there. I repeat, it is congenital, not hereditary. Dear Di Molner: Can gas escaping front a faulty heater cause diarrhea? If it can cause nausea, why not diarrhea?—R.B. Yes, it's possible; however, headaches, nausea and drowsiness are the usual symptoms of mono- xied from faulty heaters. Dear Dr. Molner: What can I do for an itch all over my body? If I scratch it bleeds. It is worse at night.—C.E. Some diseases, of which diabetes is one, can cause itching. Consult your doctor. Occurring at times, it could be sensitivity to a wool blanket. Or too many blankets, making you too warm. If it turns out to be purely a skin ailment, he can tackle that, too. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., for a copy of the Headaches—You can beat them. Write to Dr. booklet, "How To Tame Headaches." Please enclose a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover cost of handling. NEW SUMMER WHITE HOUSE - This rambling frame summer house at end of Squaw Island near Hyannis Port, Mass., on Cape Cod is to be new summer White House.

John Wayne Sues Over Use Of Name By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Actor John Wayne, testified in Superior Court at Phoenix, Ariz. Monday in a suit to stop the John Wayne Realty and Investment Co. of Phoenix from using that name. Wayne alleges the real estate firm is trying to exploit his name.
