OTTAWA HERALD Tin Thursday, April 11, 1963 r Editorials A Way Of Growing The coming weekend will be observed by many as a religious holiday, Easter. But to those who have been tardy with their book work, it will be no time off. In fact it is safe to perdict many a taxpayer will think other than holy thoughts while wrestling with income tax forms. The deadline for personal income taxes is April 15, Monday. While not trying to be humorous, it might also be pointed out that this year is the golden anniversary of the 16th amendment which permits the levying of a federal income tax. It is scarcely laughable to point out how far we have come in these 50 years. The amendment was proposed in 1909. Wyoming was the 36th state to ratify the amendment in 1913, signifying the adoption. At the time the amendment was kick- This And That by jph ing around various state houses, proponents told those who objected to the tax amendment that it would be scarcely conceivable that the tax on incomes would ever go above two per cent. If you check your tax charts which come with those forms Uncle Sam puts out you will find that today's federal taxes range from 20 to 91 per cent. Of course it must be admitted that times have changed, the world has changed and many good causes are supported by the funds we remit to the federal collector by April 15. What is significant, though, is the amount of the increase when weighed against the initial thoughts that it would never go above two per cent. Taxes just never seem to go down or to disappear. Once passed they grow and grow. This might be something to remember every time a new tax is proposed. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel* 5-IS, CBS Channel 9, ABT Thursday Sultan Big Man At Jahore JPH SINGAPORE — The dark-skinned boy who drove me to Johore this morning was native born but only, of one-half native blood. His mother is Malay but his father is from Pakistan. His father, moreover, maintains a second wife, 2,500 miles away in Kashmir. But what of it? As a good Muslim his quota of wives is four. "Two wives are not many, and my father loves them both," said my driver. "The rich Chinese here may have as many as four or five and, oh, so many children. These Chinese, all they think of is women and gambling. They drink a lot, too/' I sensed mat his opinion of these Chinese was not of the highest A 12-mile drive brought us to the 300-yard causeway which connects Singapore with Johore on the Malayan mainland. The causeway carries not only motor traffic but a rail line and a 40-inch pipe through which the city's water supply flows as well. As we drove across, my driver refreshed my recollection of Singapore's ignominious, brief chapter in the history of World War II. "The British had many big guns, but they were all on the other side of the island, pointed out to aea. The Japanese are tricky. They camp by land. When they approached the causeway, the British dynamited it. The Japs, they blew up the pipeline, leaving the city with no water to drink. "The British could not do anything but surrender to the Japanese when they came across the straits, from right over there, in small boats. The British troops, only most of them were Indians or Australians, were put into the big prison in Singapore, and many of them did not live to get out. They starved to death. I show you their graves on the way back." And he did. Jahore City proved to be a small, pleasant (if one could overlook the open sewers), and quiet place. It was quieter than usual, except in the open central market, because this was Friday. The Malays, who make up the greater part of the population, are Muslims, and Friday is their Sabbath. Many of them were already making their way up to the big, white rococo mosque on the top of the hill for noon prayer. Johore has the look of the provinicial capital it is. It has a relatively new and fresh look as well, with a tall, just completed hotel on the water front, several office buildings under construction, a large government building that dominates everything, and residential lanes with well-kept, small cottages and more than a few pretentious residences set back in large yards. The Sultar of Johore is seldom seen, but his presence is constantly felt. His old palace, or town house, is a big, rambling yellow structure surrounded by at least two square miles of scrupulously manicured park. Here he has his private zoo. Over in Singapore he also has a ''bungalow," set in large, secluded grounds and seldom occupied, which, I gather, is sort of a palace, junior size. The tomb, in which the Sultan one day will lie beside his forebears, dominates the simple graves surrounding it in the Muslim cemetery Down the coast a few miles, overlooking the straits, set on top of a hill within another large park which has been thickly bordered with clumps of Bamboo to keep out the public, is his new and even larger country palace. From it all, I gather that the ruler of Johore has no doubts about the future of the Sultan business. Going back across the causeway, 1 remarked to my driver that Johore City seemed an attractive place "No," he said, flatly. "Too Dull." And that more or less put an end to our conversation.

(AP) - Seven- year-old Charlie Leete, a second- grader, still has a little trouble with abbreviations and reading handwriting. After looking through the family mail, he asked his mother indignantly: "Why is everyone calling daddy 'horrible R. J. Leete'?" Charlie's mother explained that since Daddy was elected to the state Legislature many persons address mail to him as "The Hon. R. J. Leete." To Your Good Health Blood Can Slow Down Dr. Moter By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I am 70 and apparently in good health but my ears, nose and the-top of my head gets cold. How can I improve circulation? -A;L. Circulation isn't the whole story, Some other things can be involved, too. Yes, our circulation slows down as we grow older. We wear sweaters more often and sit closer to the fire. A certain amount of hardening of the arteries reduces the flow of blood. You've doubtless noticed that many older people Itok somewhat paler. They don't necessarily have anemia; they just don't have the same amount of blood circulating close to the surface of the skin. In addition to whatever changes may have happened to the arteries, the total metabolism of the body is reduced. Less physical activity and slower movements also let the circulation slow down. Quite another cause of feeling cold is a thyroid gland that is not functioning at its proper pace. People with that trouble are intolerant to cold and lay the blame on poor circulation when, in fact, some of their discomfort would be relieved by proper medication to increase thyroid secretions. One more cause is heavy smoking, which constricts the blood vessels, particularly the smaller ones close to the surface or in the extremities. Reduction in smoking sometimes brings marked improvement. If the trouble is mostly in the feet and legs, Buerger's exercises help. This is really a very simple process. Lie down on your back. Raise one leg for a few seconds. Lower, then do it with the other leg. What this amounts to, mostly, is letting gravity help the blood flow, first in one direction, then the other. But the exercise itself is beneficial, too. When we were young, we were — most of us— normal types that could stand the cold because our circulation and metabolism were vigorous. Since then we've individually made the discovery that people do get older. We slow down. And the best way to combat the cold is to conserve our body heat. So bundle up more. Wear socks and take advantage of night caps (the kind you wear on your head, not the kind you pour). Warm the bed with a hot water bottle before climbing in. Wear a hat or a wooly cap outdoors. Use an electric blanket. We can't stay young forever, but if we use our good sense and moderate ingenuity, we can stay warm and comfortable. Dear Dr Molner: Is there a cure for rheumatic fever?—L.S. Yes. It depends mainly on adequate rest, and the use of salicylates (aspirin-type drugs) or steroids, as cortisone. True, if rheumatic fever at- tacks are not properly treated and damage to tht) heart results, it may not be corrected afterward, short of surgery.. But rheumatic fever can bt conquered if we do a good job of treatment early every time a case is detected. Likewise it u now possible (and certainly advisable) to have treatment once a month after an attack, tp prevent recurrence. Note to Mrs. M.A.: In general, the dangers of violet rays are the same as those of sunshine. Avoid sunburn! And avoid staying under a violet ray lamp long enough to burn. For example, don't fall alseep under a lamp. How to get rid of leg carmps and foot pains? The answer may be simple. Write to Dr. Molner Box 158, Dundee, 111., for a copy of the leaflet, "How To Stop Leg Cramps and Foot Pains," enclosing a long, self-addressed, .stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover cost of printing and handling.
