-Ji P^Foor OTTAWA HERALD Monday, April 15, 1963 •litorial, More For The Dollar The largest single item in Uncle Sam's near $100 billion budget is "defense spending." Few will doubt we need to spend billions for defense to counter the global threat of the Communists. Hard as it is on the taxpayers, and as much as most of us dislike deficit spending, we must continue to spend huge amounts both for modern armament and for space exploration. Another large item in the budget is foreign aid. Here, latest reports indicate that billions have been tossed down the drain. The spending of these billions has caused considerable question. Indications are that foreign aid is in for drastic cuts in the current Congress. Yet we can't turn our backs on the rest of the world. We must continue to put our dollars where they will do the most good in fighting global conquests by the Communists. We should not, however, lose sight of To Your Good Health the fact that the Russians, too, are spending billions for arms, space and foreign aid. Maybe not as much as this country, but they are being forced to match our efforts. ' In Cuba, for example, it is estimated Russia is spending about a million a day, both in aid and to support the men and materials it has on that island. America, probably rightly so, is looked upon as the richest nation in the world. It certainly is the spendingest. While there are those who think we are taxed to the limit, that we can't do any more than we presently are, there is solace in the knowledge that Russia is beginning to feel the pinch of this economic struggle. There are no signs that the end of this struggle is in sight. Certainly it is to continue for many years to come. Our only hope is that this country can learn to spend its money more wisely than it has in the past, that we get more for the dollar than we have been getting. Treat Glaucoma Early Dr. Molnei By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: What is glaucoma, and what causes it? Can anything be done for it?—C.A.R. I'm glad you asked, because your questions give me a chance to relate some facts that can save the eyesight of many people. Glaucoma is an increase in pressure inside the eyeball. As the pressure grows, it not only interferes with vision (it can narrow the field of vision, make it foggy, with halos around lights and so on) but in some cases it causes a dull ache in eyes or the head. Untreated, it can result in blindness. It is probably the greatest single cause of blindness. But when treated — that's a happier story. Very often glaucoma can be arrested. The earlier the treatment, the better. Various drugs, drops in the eyes, changes in living habits to reduce tension, sometimes surrgery to relieve the pressure — all of these methods and combinations of them are saving people's eyes every day. Glaucoma is a disease that isn't often found until after the age of 40, or sometimes quite a bit later. Women are affected more often than men The cause isn't always known. It may be a secondary result of some other eye ailment, or there may be no visible reason. Glaucoma may come on suddenly and painfully, as an acute case. It may deceptively creep up gradually and quietly, with few or no symptoms you can recognize. But always the'pressure in the eye is too high, which gives Us our surest warning. A little instrument called a tonometer can measure this pressure. Once used only by eye specialists, the tonometer is more and more becoming standard equipment of other doctors. When a case is discovered, it is time to consult an eye specialist at <mce. Dear Dr. Molner: Three months ago I gave birth to a healthy baby. Now my hair is falling out. Is this common?—-A.P.C. I wouldn't say common, but it is far from unknown. In such cases, the hair grows back again normally after a time and without treatment. Dear Dr. Molner: I'm 19 and terrified about my condition, but am too worried to see a doctor. For a year now I have suffered from pinworm, on and off. I've taken medicine which helps temporarily. I'm wondering if it is something I am eating, and what I can do to get rid of them nermanent- ly. I also secrete a thick, white musus-like-vabinal substance. How can I correct this?—M.H. Come, now let's get unterrified. You're having troubles that lots of people have had, and have overcome. I would venture an opinion that other members of your household have pinworms, too. It's the way the ornery creature survives. One person gets rid of it, and gets it again from somebody else. It isn't from anything you eat. The problem is outlined in detail in my booklet, "Pinworm, the Commonest Pest." (To receive a copy, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., enclosing 20 cents in coin and a stamped, self- addressed envelope.) The real key is to get the whole household treated at the same time. It is not difficult with the newest medications, but they aren't available as drugstore remedies, because the dosage has to be calculated for each person. The worrisome discharge may be from the pinworms. They are nown to irritate the vaginal tract in some cases. Mrs. A. A.: Contrary to modern folklore there is no evidence that a single bump ever "caused a breast cancer." Much heart trouble is preventable. Write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., for your copy of his booklet, "How To Take Care Of Your Heart," enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to coyer cost of printing and handling. AuJd Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Will Cade of 126 S. Locust, dropped in at the Herald office to remind the editor that 73 years had passed since J. Wilkes Booth shot and killed Abraham Lincoln in Ford's Theater in Washington, D. C. Cade came to Ottawa in 1866, when the town has two stores and a few homes. His father purchased a quarter section of land northwest of Ottawa for $1.25 per acre. Cade had a good sense of humor. He remarked, "Don't let 'em tell you that practice makes perfect. I've been walking for about 80 years, and I don't walk nearly as good now as I did 60 years ago." Three Santa Fe trains serving Ottawa were discontinued. They were the Chanute train, the Emporia train and the Lawrence branch train. 50 YEARS AGO Members of the Ottawa Fairview Country Club were having fun with a "call your club" golf contest. The idea of the game was this. Each player would tee off, then name the club he would use on the next shot without knowing the lie of his ball. This would continue on each shot over the course. The county commissioners approved the re-routing of a road in the Lane area to take the road around a hill instead of over it. C. M. Albright of Overbrook sold a Durham bull to F. L. Murdock of Ness City. Laff-A-Day 4.15 C W«i rwlun. Syndic,!., h,, ;M3. W«M ri«H, Mm*. "Well, if you're years ahead of your time, why don't you fet * job until the others catch up?" Tonight's TV Highlights On the Andy Griffith show this evening, Channels 5 and 13 at 8:30, Deputy Barney Fife decides to do something about Andy not being married. Barney exposes Andy <o many fair maidens, but Andy's choice doesn't please Barney even a little bit. At 9 this evening, on Channel 4, David Brinkley's Journal has an Arizona setting. On a visit to that state Brinkley looks into the affairs of Wyatt Earp in the town of Tombstone. He finds that the TV picture of Earp isn't quite in tune with the facts he learns concerning the history of the famed western marshal. Late movies will include "It's A Wonderful World," a 1939 film starring Claudette Colbert, and James Stewart. Channel 5, Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel. 5-18, CBS Channel 9. ABO FAMILY SHOW — First Judy Garland (right), then her daughter, Liza Minnelli, are being seen on Ed Sullivan show, 7 p.m. Sundays, Channels 5 and 13. Judy was with Ed last night. Liza will be with him Sunday, April 21. Liza made New York theater debut in "Best Foot Forward." This And That by jph K.L. Is Still A Pearl KUALA LUMPUR, Malaya - Eighteen months or so ago a report on Kuala Lumpur appeared in this column with which its Chamber of Commerce should have found complete satisfaction. I clasi- fied it in glowing terms, perhaps even goin.e so far as to describe it as a pearl of the Orient which was untarnished because it was off the main around-the-world tourist route. I returned here yesterday, an hour and a half up from Singapore by DC-3, with some misgivings. First impressions sometimes are misleading, particularly after a month in West Pakistan. Perhaps I would find that on second visit, Kuala Lumpur was really a gingerbreadish little capital, isolated in a big clearing in the jungle with the boom that was then in progress having made it commercialized and without charm. •nil My doubts now have been dis- Jrn polled. K.L., as it generally is termed out here, deserved all of the nice things I said about it before, and more. No sooner had I stepped down From the airplane than I had the comforting feeling of seeming more or less at home. K.L. had registered itself that strongly in my subconscious. I remembered the trim little airport. The customs clearance that was cursory and courteous. The little, barelegged Malay boys in their khaki shorts and T-shirts, who whisked bags into a car as though it were an impulsive act of hospitality rather than a chance for a tip. The way into the city I recalled as well. Past the Chinese cemetery with its confusion of curious old gravestones. Skirt a cluster of those clapboard shacks in which the Malays live, with the jungle in the background. Down a deeply shaded, winding road lined with neat and well-kept cottages of the old style, built four feet off the ground so that there can be ventilation not only from four sides but from top and bottom as well. Turn left just before the high, mustard-colored walls of the prison. Curve down a street lined with two-story shops, their ground floors recessed to provide a shaded arcade and their plastered fascades gay with signs in four languages and in all the bright colors but mostly red, advertising the nature of the business within. Turn right at the Chinese movie house with its billboards covered with two-feet high Chinese characters describing the current attraction. Two short blocks down is the well-remembered hotel where there was not only a room but also mail waiting. Who could ask for anything more? Once unpacked, I took a ^familiarization course around the area. It was all the same. The fat, old Chinese women in their black pantaloons and white blouses, waddling along under black umbrellas. The moon-faced schoolboys in shorts and shirts. The amusement park a block down the street, where a daylight holdup had taken place only hours before my arrival. The trishaws — a bicycle with a sidecar in which two passengers can crowd — being pedal- led ever so leisurely along. The restaurants spread out over the sidewalks, with their sweating cooks, wearing shorts alone, bending over their smoking wood stoves preparing the evening meal. Inscrutable, leather-faced, old merchants look vacantly out of their open shops, apparently indifferent to whether another customer ever stopped in or not. Young girls in their pajamas of the cut their American equivalents wear only to bed. A group of children sucking short lengths of sugar cane they have just bought from a sidewalk seller. The trickle of bicycles and small European cars in the street. Young Chinese matrons in their cheong- sans — sheath-style dresses which are slashed up the sides almost up to their hips — with their incredibly narrow waists emphasizing the projections above and below. Yes, around my hotel Kuala Lumpur was just the same. But around the city, as I found out later astonishing changes are in progress. Prayer For Today "0 dull - witted men," He replied, with minds so slow to believe all that the Prophets have spoken!" (Luke 24:25. Weymouth.) PRAYER: O Thou stranger of Galilee, draw near to us as we tread life's sometimes difficult road. Cause our hearts to burn within us with the joy of knowing Thou art our friend. In Thy name and for Thy sake. Amen. Can Travel Far Via TV Screen Tuesday night series and act in all of them—sometimes as star By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer v NEW YORK (AP) - Television makes travel so easy and inexpensive. Sunday night, for instance, ABC took us on a full hour tour of the Vatican, complete with glimpses of the Pope, a look at the Sistine Chapel and access to private chapels and chambers closed to ordinary visitors. We saw and heard Pope John XXHI as he sat in his private study. The idea was to show a day at the Vatican starting with opening the gates by the Swiss Guard. It was a reverent and earnest program although it was not done with much imagination. The "Bob Hope Show" Sunday night devoted its major sketches to wary spoofs of television hospital shows and a pointless bit about congressional investigating committees. It was rather an off nigb.t for the comedians. The latter half of the program was given over to handing out awards by a television magazine. It was not explained how five or six shows or performers were nominated originally, but readers voted, among others, "Beverly Hillbillies" their favorite new series; "Bonanza" favorite series; Richard Chamberlain, favorite male star, and Carol Burnett favorite female star. NBC is building lots of attrac- tive acting talent into next season's "Richard Boone Show," a series of hour-long dramas to be performed by a repertory company. Among the permanent members of the company will be Lloyd Bochner, who was something of a hit in "Hong Kong" for two seasons; Bethel Leslie, one of television's busiest and most attractive guest stars; Harry Morgan, half of "Pete and Gladys" and a popular character in "December Bride," and Jeanette Nolan, wife of "Wagon Train's" John Mcintyre, who has been a guest star in many a series, including her husband's. Boone will serve as host on the Ottawa Herald 106-106 B. Main Publtsned dully except Sunday ano Holidays. Second doss postage at Ottawa. Kansas. Robert B.
