OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Tuesday, April 16, 1963 Anti-Business Again? Last week one of the smaller producers of steel in this country announced a moderate price increase. This announcement set off a wave of speculation accompanied by numerous meetings of top government officials. This week two other producers followed suit. All indications are the entire industry will adjust prices upward in the next few weeks. The initial announcement was followed by a call from the President to show restraint in raising prices. This is in marked contrast with what happened a year ago when a raise by one of the big steel firms resulted in the Presidential clobbering of the whole industry. Since that time the government has worked night and day to allay feelings that it is anti-business. Only partially successful, it's a safe bet President Kennedy had this in mind when he urged a careful approach by the industry. Now Congress has called for an inquiry into steel prices. One wonders what this will accomplish other than to renew the feeling that an anti-business attitude remains strong in the nation's capital. The Presidential action of a year ago set a bad precedent. Should government control prices? This same question now can be asked of Congress. The very mention of Congressional inquiry in itself is a deterrent to free actions by the business world. It should be obvious that the free enterprise system on which this country was built grows less free each day. Joe Button, Commissioner A rural accident several days ago claimed the life of Joe Button, a Franklin County Commissioner. A quiet, unassuming man, Mr. Button had served as a member of the county board for six years. He had a reputation for integrity. He was a conservative man who refused to act in county matters un- This And That by jph less he was sure proposals were what the county needed and what the people wanted. A jealous guardian of the public dollar, Mr. Button was a firm believer that the best government is one close to the voters. He served his county well. All of us are in his debt. Boom Town Of Malaysia .. KUALA LUMPER — Malays form the majority of the population of Malaya, but most of them live on small farms, in tin mine compounds on rubber plantations, or in the jungle. The Chinese here, in contrast, tend to prefer the city. The result is tha.t Kuala Lumpur is almost as much of a Chinese city as Singapore is. The K.L. 60 per cent of the population is Chinese and it owns probably 87 pe r cent of the wealth. The man who lives in the big new mansion, of western style with strongly Oriental modifications, is Chinese. The crew of the truck that comes around to remove the refuse will be Malays. The Malays control the government, though, and that helps some. It helps particularly those who are employed by the government. The Chinese are not ones to sit on their wealth. They gamble with it, sometimes losing fortunes to one another in a night. They speculate with it in businesses, industries, and construction projects. In recent years in K.L. their speculations have paid off well. A year and a half ago I wrote from here that this was a boom town. Today it still is booming. Perhaps more than ever. The probability that soon K.L. will be the capital, not of Malaya, but of the expansion into Malaysia, sends local development hopes sparing even higher. There is such confidence in the formation of Malaysia that already three-fourths completed is a large building to provide quarters for the legislative body with a 16-floor tower rising above it to house the secretariat. Speculators, naturally, are bidding up the price of nearby real estate. The largest hotel is being doubled in size. New multistoried apartment houses are still going up. Automobile agencies are occupying handsome, new quarters. The city continues to spread out through the development of new subdivisions in areas from which the jungle has been bulldozed away, or on the sites of played-out tin mines. Some are filled with substantial residences and others with more modest but attractive cottages with white plastered walls and red tile roofs. All are soon richly landscaped with tropical growth. Six miles from the center of the city is Petaling Jaya, an "industrial estate," as they call it. Carved out of the jungle, it is a new city, with certain areas zoned for factory sites, others for housing for their workers, and still more for community facilities. A decade ago it was all tropical wilderness. Today it is coming close to full development. The industries are at work or under construction. Hous- ing continues to rise on its assigned places. A medical school is nearing completion. There are such community amenities as a supermarket, a hospital, and a Chinese Methodist church. They claim now that Kuala Lumpur with its suburb of Petaling Jaya has a population of half a million, and this is 20 per cent more than the figure cited less than two years ago. But despite all this development, K.L. has in no sense become a western city except in the physial appearance of many of its new structures. Kuala Lumpur still is of, by, and for the east. It is a Chinese-Malay city where the two races have evolved a reasonably satisfactory pattern of co-existence. A provinicial capital, still semi-isolated from the main currents of the world. Cupped within the high jungle-covered hills, almost always obscured by a rich blue haze, which rise around it in every direction, it might almost be termed a Shangri-La. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Young people of Ottawa were planning an Easter sunrise service to be held at Duchesne Hill, southwest of Ottawa. Edmund Lister, chairman, announced that a dinner would be the starting point for a campaign for funds for the Ottawa University Foundation. Miss Lola Sloan went to Polo, Mo., called by the death of an uncle, John Van Olinda. 50 YEARS AGO Frank Morris and C. 0. Gummins purchased the Merchants' Lunch cafe. Adam Weaver of Elm Street appeared downtown wearing a straw hat, the first of the season seen on Ottawa's Main Street. Clayton Young left for Nebraska where he planned to spend a month. Prayer For Today "He is not here; for he has risen, as he said." (Matthew 28:6. RSV.) PRAYER: Our Father in heaven, we praise Thee that death has been robbed of its sting and the grave of its victory. Thanks be to Thee, who giveth us victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Main Phone: CH 2-4818 405 N. Main CH 2-4358 Home Course Not Best Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I have been planning to take a home study course in practical nursing. My friends tell me it would be a waste of time because doctors do not recognize it and there isn't any actual hospital training. Are my friends right?-M.F. Yes, because you cannot become an L.P.N. (licensed prac tical nurse) through a mail order course of study. I suppose you'd be bound to pick up some information, but even if you then got work as an aide in a hospital you would still have to take the inservice training that most hospitals require. A better way is to find out what practical nurse training classes are available in your locality. Some are run in connection with hospitals. Some are offered as a part of the public school adult training system. Since the situation varies from place to place, inquire through a local hospital, or get in touch with a nursing bureau or nursing association, either a state or local office. They will tell you what training you can get and where. With our continuing need for more nurses, you'll find such organizations cooperative. Likewise the more training you receive, the more money you earn. Dear Dr. Molner: Do you think a boy should see his mother undress? My aunt has raised her son to let him enter the bathroom often while she is in the tub. She believed it is better to let a boy know than to be curious. What is your opin- ion?—J.G. Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I still think there is a place for modesty. At our house, if the bath room door is closed it means somebody is using it, so stay out. On the other hand if a youngster happens ip avertently to walk in on an adult, we've never felt it right to fuss, scold, or, indeed, make any. thing of it. This simply piques curiosity in a youngster, or (worse) makes him think he has done something "bad." Just be casual about it; no harm has been done. But I see no- benefit in encouraging any such thing. Dear Dr. Molner: The doctor has diagnosed my daughter's problem as swimmer's ear. At times it is very painful. Is it contagious?—MRS. H.S. This is usually a fungus infection acquired in lakes, rivers or streams. Not in salt water. It is also unlikely to be acquired in a chlorinated swimming pool. No, it is not contagious in the sense of being passed from one person to another. Dear Dr. Molner: I have heard of an egg diet- nothing but eggs — that I would like to try. What is your opinion of it? I thought that while on any kind of a diet it might be wise to have a vitamin supplement. Do you agree?—MISS A.M. I don't think that any diet of only one food is either logical or useful. If you go on a diet (for reducing, I presume) choose one that gives you smaller amounts of everything, with variety of taste and appearance — from vitamins and minerals to calories — and you will not have to buy vitamins to make up for what you are missing. Fad diets are for the birds. Note to T.W.: No, we remain very much in the dark as to multiple sclerosis. Research is accumulating information steadily, but as yet no cure is in sight. Are you bothered with ringing in the ears? If so, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., for the booklet, "Ear Noises — Their Causes and Cures," enclosing with your request 10 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. 5-13—CBS Reports 9—Wagon Train 7:30 5-13—Dobie Olllls 9—Going My Way mod 4—Perry Como 5-13—Beverly Hillbillies *:?" 5—Dick Van Dyke 9—Our Man Higgtni 13—Donna Reed 9:00 4—Eleventh Hour 5-13—U.
