OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Saturday, April 20, 1963 Saturday Notebook Back in the days when he was on the coaching staff at Southern Methodist, one of the ends Coach Dick Peters of Ottawa University helped train was Lamar Hunt. Hunt today owns the Dallas Texans. This week, in recalling those days, Pete said that Hunt was a "pretty good end." But he played behind Raymond Berry. Today Berry is one of the top ends in pro ball. Pete's friendship with Hunt could, however, pay off in a big way. The Texans are considering moving to Kansas City if advance ticket sales are sufficient. If they move, the Texans have been invited to practice all during August on the OU field. Pete said that the team would bring in a staff of 20 and some 60 ballplayers. The team would put on its finishing touches here, prior to its first game early in September. Use of facilities here would mean a boom for the community what with all the visitors, press, radio and TV coverage, to say nothing of the groceries 60 pro ballplayers would consume. To Your Good Health The team would live at the OU dorm and use althletic facilities available at the university. While the move isn't certain yet, an invitation has been extended. One of the problems such a project entails . . . and there are several . . . is where do you get enough king-size beds to sleep the gigantic members of the pro football team? Staying in the athletic vein a moment, members of one of the fledgling high school track teams reputedly "decorated" the home of a local citizen this week. Used was toilet paper. Honored was the son of the owners of the home. Much to the chagrin of the decorators, they were seen in the act and when they took off running, the matron of the household caught several of the speedsters in less than a block. Making the rounds of the coffee groups the past week is the new "Kennedy" dollar bill. An ordinary bill, it has been shrunk with a pair scissors and put back together with scotch tape. The result is that George Washington has no neck. Library Notes Award-Winning Books Available Poison Ivy Immunity By NELL BARNABY Librarian The prize - winning children's books — recent winners of the Newbery and Caldecott awards for 1962 — are now on display at the Carnegie Free Library. The Newbery award is given to the author of the most distinguished children's book published during the preceding year, while the Caldecott award goes to the illustrator of the picture book regarded as the best. Mad eleine L'Engle was presented the John Newbery medal for her book, "A Wrinkle in Time," an allegorical fantasy c o n- cerning a physicist father who traverses space NELL n the fifth dimension and three j children who, aided by superna- ural beings, seek him on the planet Camazotz. The coveted Randolph Caldecott award for the finest picture book of the year was won by illustrator Ezra Jack Keats for "The Snowy Day" which captures a small boy's quiet delight upon waking one winter morning to find the earth covered with snow. Choice of the prize-winning books is determined by a committee of the Children's Service Division of the American Library Association, with children's and Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: My 15-year-old son has only to go near poison ivy and he breaks out with it. Where can I buy pills to prevent the rash? He has been taking poison ivy extract.—MRS. J.T. There are a number of protective medications for poison ivy. Although I avoid trade names whenever possible, in this case I'll mention two with which I happen to be familiar: Toxirhus, a liquid extract, and Aqua Ivy, which comes in tablet form, have been effective in my experience. Doubtless there are others and I do not mean to slight them. These oral preparations are available in drugs stores. Follow the directions carefully — and remember that for maximum effect in building up protection against ivy, one must start taking them early — about three months before contact is expected. Alternatively, other extracts can be given by injection, but in that case you must rely on your doctor. Your comment that your son has been taking poison ivy extract impels me to add a word of caution. If he has had either oral or injected extracts this spring, don't add any other types of medication without your doctor's approval. Too much can cause trouble. Your son obviously is highly sensitive. He doesn't really break out just by being "near" ivy. The sticky juice of leaves or stems must be reaching him. For one thing, it may cling to the fur of animals, only to be rubbed off on him or on bushes which he may touch. Again, some people break out from smoke of fires in which ivy is burning — the smoke carries the poison. Even with pre-season treatment, it is still wise for a person to beware the "leaves of three," because the protection is relative. It will combat some exposure but not always heavy contact. If you live where ivy flourishes, destroy it with chemicals. Ammonium carbamate serves well for this purpose. Your hardware or garden supply store can suggest other chemicals that are also effective. Dear Dr. Molner: Please send me your booklet, "How to Tame Headaches." According to instructions, I enclose 20 cents in coin and a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Are B-12 shots good for migraine headaches?—MRS. R.C. They might help in selected cases when headaches are triggered in part by a run-down condition which can be benefited by the B-12. In most cases, however, a combination of ergotamine tar- trite, caffein and sometimes other drugs is more helpful. You must learn the signs that show when . a migraine is about to start. You can often prevent or ease an attack then. You'll find more on the subject in the booklet. Dear Doctor: I recently bought my sister, with whom I live, a plastic bowl in which to feed her dog, figuring she should use it instead of one of our table dishes. I claim that feeding a pet from our dishes is very unsanitary and not in good taste. Am I right?—M. M. In the matter of taste, yes. I think dogs should have their own feeding bowls. Besides, it's good training for a pet to learn to eat from its own dish. As to the question of being unsanitary, I see no great danger. Tests have shown that human mouths harbor many more germs. At any rate, I think you chose a tactful way of getting the idea across. Never take a chance on diabetes! For better understanding of this disease, write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., for a copy of the booklet, "Diabetes — The Sneaky Disese." Please enclose a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 25 cents in coin to cover cost of printing and handling. Because of the tremendous volume of mail received daily, Dr. Molner regrets that he cannot answer individual letters, but whenever possible he uses readers' questions in his column. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Mrs. L. M. Curby was seriously ill at the home of a daughter, Mrs. George Sherman, 122 S. Locust. Troops paraded and all of Germany celebrated the 49th birthday of Adolph Hitler. Ottawa University was observing its 73rd birthday. 50 YEARS AGO Ottawa joined up with the Inter-City Baseball League. It was made up of teams at Atchison, Leavenworth and Ottawa, and five Kansas City semi-pro teams. A collection of paintings valued at $28,000 was on display at Carnegie Library Hall here. The collection was from the University of Kansas, Lawrence. J. B. Small, fishing in the Marais des Cygnes river, caught six drum fish weighing a total of 17 pounds.

Main CH 2-3092 PRESCRIPTION DRUGGISTS Free Prescription Delivery This And That by jph Should See Kuala Yourself KUALA LUMPUR - Mrs. Soh is brisk and buxom. She wears horn-rimmed glasses, is a native of K.L., and conducts a small travel agency. She has visited China, from where her parents came, as a girl. She has no use for it as a place to live. Nor has she any use for either its former Chiang Kaishek government or its present Communist one. She has great pride in being a Chinese, however, and a love for Chinese culture. Mrs. Soh took me on a reminiscent sight • seeing tour of her city. Her regular guide was not available. She drove her own little Mercedes car, because that saved her the expense of a driver. Mrs. Soh is very businesslike. She collected in advance. . I had forgotten what a lavish- m ly beautiful place Kuala Lum- * pur is. A business district which looks more modern than Des Moines, even if some of the buildings are not so high. The mosque at the edge of it, all gaily striped in green, white and red. The old government buildings of a Victorian-Moorish style. The Selangar Club, which could have been transplanted from a London suburb, where, since it was a Sunday morning, a cricket match was in progress on its adjoining green. We drove past the railroad station built on the lines of a mosque to gratify the whim of a former Sultan. The palace of the present Sultan, who now has only ceremonial power, which has the look of an opulent golf clubhouse and which was built larger because the Chinese millionaire who first owned it had 10 wives. We saw the new museum, which will have the lines of a pagoda and which was made necessary because American bombers destroyed the old one during the Japanese, occupation when they were aiming for the railroad yards a mile away. Twenty-story apartment houses, so narrow they look like an up-end deck of cards, just finished or nearing completion. The new language institute with its whole facade covered with a mural. We visited the old residential district where the large, old mansions and the expansive grounds recall a little the areas J. C. Nichols first laid out in Kansas City. The new developments which cover the hills to one side of the city, where the homes, all put up in the past five or six years, reveal a dazzling array of architectural ingenuity. Because Mrs. Soh is a conscientious guide, we even inspected a tin mine, since a number of them are conveniently located at the edge of the city. It is a dredging operation, since the ore is only a few feet under the soil. The mud soup is sucked up to the head of a stairsteps of troughs, with gravity, on the way down, washing away the earth and leaving the heavier ore in the receptacles. But the thing that impressed me most, as we toured leisurely around, was the richness of the tropical growth. Towering, old trees that make winding roads green tunnels. Rows of graceful coconut palms. Clumps of low banana trees and bamboo. Twenty varieties of orchids in bloom in a lawn garden. Trees covered with white, pink, and bright red blossoms. Banked flowers around doorways so bright that they almost blind one's eyes. Kuala Lumpur is too lush, rich, and picturesque for me adequately to describe. You should come out sometime and see it for yourself. OTTAWA HERALD'S BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL GUIDE OPTOMETRISTS Arvid Berglund, O.D. OPTOMETRIST 316 S. Main CH 2-2796 Olin G. Wollen, O.D.
