OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials A Refreshing Approach In his few short months in office, Kansas' junior U.S. Senator, James Pearson, has shown he isn't afraid to to take a stand on critical issues. His current news letter is a fine example. It is a thoughtful, 4-page summary of the federal tax problem. In it, Senator Pearson reviews carefully the administration's proposed budget, largest in peacetime history, then points out the tax cut suggestions and the planned deficit. He says that the administration 'finally recognized that the Federal tax structure was a drag on the national economy, but it dismissed the fact that existing conditions might be aggravated by too much government or too much Federal spending." The tax cut philosphy, he says, reveals "an uncanny ability to mix economics and politics into a single brew." Further, he charges that proposals to cut taxes are self-defeating, not stimulating to the economy. Some of them, those pertaining to dividend credits and my with one hand and push it down with the other." He also points out that social security taxes are up, will climb again in 1966, and medicare, if passed, would increase tax burden. As he usually does, Pearson states his opinion in clear terms. He suggests: Federal spending be reduced and the budget balanced. New programs and extension of existing ones "must meet the test of whether we can afford them in a period demanding defense expenditures to insure our national survival." Any tax cut must be concentrated in a short period of time to be effective and must be related directly to reductions in spending to avoid a large budget deficit. Tax rate reductions should stimulate modernization and expansion of industry. And finally, Pearson hits the administration a stiff blow with "we must create a climate for economic growth by restoring confidence in the market place. We must stop tinkering with our economic system."

Me And Bill Holden JPH KUALA LUMPUR - The Federal is K.L.'s second best hotel, but I still prefer it to the Merlin, which is larger, more refined, more expensive, and located in a quiet, residential district off to itself. The Federal has 120 modern, air-conditioned rooms, a staff eager to please superlative floor service, and a sound restaurant with a choice of either European or Chinese food. It is more commercial, relatively a little rowdy, and much more interestingly situated. It is on the fringe of the business district. All around are little Chinese eating places which, in the evening, sprawl themselves all over the sidewalks. One way down the street there is a Chinese laundry and, just beyond, a small amusement park. The other way there are two movies and a clinic specializing in herb medicine. Around the corner is a row of small, second- •tary hotels which, I am reliably informed by local sources, are br-th-ls. Quite an interesting neighborhood. The Federal Hotel is not the same as when I last stayed in it, and perhaps it never will be again. The difference is that William Holden is in residence along with a large entourage. They have commandeered most of the rooms. They are here making a movie, it goes without saying. The working title of the film is "The Year of the Dragon." It has to do, I gather with the decade during which the British were exterminating the Communists, just as the United States has now set out to do in South Viet Nam. Bill, if I may assume a familiarity I do not possess, is the hero, naturally. The herone is an American chick named Suzannah something, and if I went to the films more than once a year, I would be able to identify her more precisely. For added interest there is a French actress who plays a Eurasian who is suspected of consorting with the bad guys but who has a true-blue heart, even if her eyes are made up to appear slightly slanted. A Japanese has been imported to play the Chinese villain. Hollywood always does it the hard way. There are hundreds of Chinese within walking distance who look just as villainous as any movie fan could desire. I am only guessing about how the film turns out, but I am satisfied that by the end the good guys prevail, and boy (if Mr. Holden who has a daughter of 25 still may be so called) gets girl. What the impact of the picture may be on future audiences remains to be seen, but the effect on the Federal Hotel already is tremendous. The staff of the Mandarin Palace, which is the night club on the hotel's third floor where a Japanese danseuse is presently the attraction, is still ga-ga. The Mandarin Palace already has been used as a set. It should have been. It looks so much like a Hollywood concept of a Mandarin Palace, with its bright red paint gilt decorations, Chinese characters sprinkled around, and painted dragons circling around the columns, that the cameras could have started rolling without a detail changed. The second floor still is a scene of great activity. A portion of the dining room has been partitioned off to provide temporary offices for the production staff. Most fuctionally, the entrance to the offices is off the cocktail lounge. With this arrangement, when production lags, the staff can come out in the lounge for revivification. It is a United Artists production, but surprisingly there is not a Hollywood type among the large and motley crew. Half of the staff are British. Long men of artistic mien who need either haircuts or shaves. Beautifu blonde young women who either are leggy and lithesome or bountifully bosomy. The other half are Chinese, Indian, or Eurasian local recruits. The local men look nervous, as if they feared they might lose their jobs at any minute. The local girls, in those sheath dresses which reveal their legs so effectively, seem much more assured. Bill Holden and I are residing within no more than three floors of one another, but I am yet to see him and probably won't. The local press, though gives me a daily report of his doings. Two days ago he was active on location in the jungle bang-banging at the Communist guerillas. Yesterday he found time between shots to shop for a $9,000 Mercedes sports car. Today he welcomed his 19-year-old son (and have you also noticed how all of the leading male stars are getting on?) here for a brief holiday. It is wonderful here in the Federal Hotel to have this feeling of intimacy with the cinema great. If "The Year of the Dragon" ultimately is shown at home on an evening when I am not otherwise occupied, I certainly intend to see it.

JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: What will stop hay fever? My son, now 24, sometimes nearly smothers to death in damp weather. If he has a cold, his head seems to close completely. Even when he is normal, he coughs and sneezes and his eyes water and swell. He won't go to a specialist. Can you suggest something that will help him?— MRS. R.B. I'm not sure from the letter whether this condition is only hay fever, or whether it is an allergy which occurs other than in the autumn. The answers, however, are the same. There are three things that can be done: 1. De-sensitization shots, (For real hay fever, these are inject- Dr. Molnet In some instances a single injection is used, containing materials which cause gradual-and slow absorption of the de-sensitizing agents. You will have to leave it to your doctor to de-, tide whether to use this method in the case at hand. It's a puzzle to me why a young man suffering so severely from allergy should refuse to go to a specialist (an allergist, in this instance). If the sheer personal misery isn't enough to make him want some relief, he should be told that his constant sneezing and coughing may be harmful to the lungs, helping to cause emphysema,, which can be ultimately disabling. Asthma may also develop at the end of the allergy attack, interfering with breathing and threatening in time to affect the heart and lungs. Likewise it is not unusual for such persons to have sinus trouble. Controliing (even if not totally stopping) these tions to help the person tolerate various pollens Controlling (even if not totally stopping) these in the air. For other allergies, different desen- severe ha y fever and aller sy conditions is msur- «;«;*:.,» Mn * n .:_i« _.._* u_ _jj_j \ ance for' future good health. Indeed, the import* sitizing materials must be added.) 2. Taking antihistamines to ease the symptoms while an attack is in progress. 3. Going to some other climate when the attacks occur. This isn't always practical of course. In addition, you have to find a place where the offending pollens or other such materials are not present. There are two main methods of de-sensitization. One is to give a series of injections, starting about six months before the allergy season begins, and gradually increasing the doses. The other is year-round, giving the injections about once a month to keep tolerance up permanently. ance of this often is not recognized until after a great deal of harm has been done. Safety lies in starting early and keeping at treatment. Dear Dr. Molner: We like to eat dried fruit, uncooked, especially apples prepared with sulphur dioxied. Can this be harinful?-MRS. W.D. Washing the dried fruit before eating should remove any risk from the chemical. Shingles can be a painful disease! To receive a copy of my pamphlet, "The Facts, About Shingles," write Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 10 cents in coin to cover printing and handling. Dick Crawford The Coffee Break Is Here To Stay By DICK CRAWFORD The coffee break has become an American tradition that has merited the praise and criticism of employes and employers. It usually has the support of he worker and for the most part it has the blessing of the boss. Wiere the coffee ) r e ak originated, we don't enow, but someone said the dea was conceived by an ndustrial p s y- chologist who bought coffee might be the lubricant that would essen wear on the personnel machine. According to this source of in- ormation, whoever it was, the 'break" was started for assem- >ly line workers who spent their jn-the-job hours at one boring outine task. From the assembly ine the "break" made its way o the office, and then it spread rom business to business. The nickel cup of coffee was ill right with the worker once or twice a day at "break time." 'he idea caught on and opened DICK and dimes and kick out a cup of coffee and the exact change, less a nickel. The safety departments of some states took up the idea as a means of keeping drivers awake and started putting out signs urging - "Stop For A Coffee-Break." Despite an occasional gripe about time lost from the day's work, the coffee-break seems sure to stay. And really it's not a bad idea. Schools Get Cash A check for been received by $53,629.80 has the Franklin lie company cafeteria until 3 instead of the from 10 previous lours of 11 to 1. All went well ntil the advent of the dime cup f coffee. When word got around about the extra five cents, the cafe- aria's business dropped off a ittle; the corner drug store wound p with too much Java on hand or a few days, and patrons of he small cafe sometimes had o wait for a pot to brew. The 10-cent cup did catch on, lough, and for the most part rate of coffee consumption idn't suffer. But the dime cup of coffee left ic coffee-break in a reformed tate. The smaller businesses in- ested in a coffeemaker and paid or it with the accumulated nick- Is. The thermos bottle sales in- reased slightly (very slightly) nd the coin-operated coffee ven- ors began appearing with coin ots that would change quarters County treasurer from the State Department of Public Instruction for distribution among the five high schools in the county.
