OTTAWA HERALD 5-Tige Four ' Editorials Tuesday, April 23, 1963 A Campaign Plank --' One of the state's leading school "officials, Supt. W. M. Ostenberg, Salina, ''looked back on the Kansas Legislature r the other day and remarked: ,T. "I hope some day the state legislature acts first, not last on public school "matters, when the onus of possible new "''taxes will be on something other than IVnew school programs." His is a pertintent observation. The ' r legislature waited until the final moments, then killed a foundation program, carried over the old "emergency" aid "plan we have had the past few years and passed a weakened unification bill. It did so because it said it didn't .want to raise taxes. Thus public schools and state taxes are linked together. In the dun, early days of the session the i ~ ; same body of Kansans took the University of Wichita into the state system. Little mention was made of the possibility that this inclusion would result in less money in the state coffers. - This And That by jph Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Tuesday Also this same Legislature passed a sharply-increased amount for our state colleges and universities. But it didn't raise taxes. And it didn't do any more for our public schools. Because the proposed foundation plan would mean more state money for the cities where most of the children are, and less for the rural areas in Western Kansas, where many of the legislators live, nothing new was done for the elementary and secondary schools. It may be wishful thinking, but maybe some day the legislature will act first, not last in behalf of the state's school children. Election time for our senators and representatives may be months away, but doing something more for our children might be a good plank with which to start a campaign platform. If the voters with school children keep this in mind, the result might be a lot of new faces in the next regular session of the legislature.

Windows extend across the end of it They make me realize I had had a mild case of claustrophobia. My room in Calcutta was an inside one, and when the lights were off, it was blacker than the Black Hole of Calcutta none other. In Kuala Lumpur the windows were frosted to prevent me from studying life in the Chinese tenement just across a narrow alley, and conversely. So, for the moment, I would find any view from a sixth story- window refreshing, but mine here is particularly good. The background is sprinkled with several • large factory structures. A num- a " a ' her of new office buildings rising above the rest, most of them fairly new and some not yet completed. The tops of coconut palms. Three television towers. The upper portion of a Buddhist temple, with lines almost exactly those of the small, silver dinner bell, of Georgian design, which in my youth always was placed on my grandmother's dining room table, convenient to her right hand. In the near foreground is a cluster of small, r* private residences, screened by trees. They are of frame construction, unpainted, devoid of glass in their windows. Their flat roofs are covered ^ with metal sheeting showing various degrees of '» rust. The small yard surrounding each is covered ' with bare dirt, for here the rich, tropical growth ofMalayais gone. They look adjec tan dewoeb- of Malaya is gone. They look adject and woebe- JPH gone. Immediately across the street is a typical Bangkok melange of development. From left to right there is a new six-story building with an appliance store and a bicycle shop sharing the ground floor. An unpainted, old mansion which looks on the verge of tumbling down. A two-story structure housing a restaurant with tables and chirs set out for diners on the packed earth of its courtyard. Next comes a large lumberyard where the piles of planks should be seasoning well in the hot sun. Then there is a large enclosure surrounded by a high fence of rusting sheet metal. Within are two weather-beaten old houses, which look as though they should have been condemned years ago, and a number of sheds. They house the largest newspaper in Bangkok. Adjoining is a large vacant lot. On it in the late afternoon a swarm of boys appear to fly small kites which dart around, birdlike, to recall the swifts in the twilight in Rome. Here kite flying is a serious, competitive sport. Then my visto is ndd with glistnng wht.lOetanshrdlu etaoin ended with glistening white, 10-story branch bank building with its air-conditioning equipment placed on its roof. My view epitomizes Bangkok; a constant clash of old and new. When I first visited it, six years ago, the city was almost all old and Oriental. It seemed somnolent and stagnant. Romantically of the Far East, perhaps, with its temples and palaces, but dirty downcast, and depraved. Today the new is bursting out all over and pulling Bangkok into the 20th century. Since I was last here, all manner of new factories, business blocks, shops, hotels, and highways have come into being. There are even new sewers, although my nose repeatedly reminds me that many more would be useful. So many additional projects are under way, it is difficult for Bangkok to maintain the pretense of business as usual during alterations. Within another few years the city should be at least 25 per cent modern; and in contrast to its sleepy indifference, it seems fairly to be pulsating. For the hot and slow-moving Orient, that is. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Charlie Evans was driving a car that was 10 years old and was equipped with its original tires. Amos Lingard and Ernest ikenberry, students at University of Kansas, Lawrence, were elected eto membership in Sigma XI, a fraternitydedeto to membership in Sigma XI, a fraternity devoted to scientific research. Lungard was a chemistry major and Ikenberry a mathematics major. Women of Ottawa Country Club were reminded that Ihe season on bass and crappie was closed from April 15 to May 15. Several of the women fished in Country Club lake. 50 YEARS AGO Rev. L. H. Holt returned from a trip on which he liad been working in the interests of Ottawa University. George Fowler went by automobile on a business trip to Humboldt, leaving Ottawa early in the morning and returning late in the evening. He reported that the trip was a slow one because the roads were badly in need of dragging. An oil drilling rig was moved in on the E. Easdale farm, Wz miles east on Wilson Street Road. Several wells were to be drilled. Wednesday Prayer For Today He is not here, but is risen. (Luke 24:6.) PRAYER: 0 Lord of the resurrection, waken us to proclaim the message of resurrection to others. While we praise Thy holy name for new life in Christ, may we also dedicated to Thee our property, our talents, our lives. In His name. Amen. 5:55 4—Daily Word • :00 4-13—Continental Classroom 6:25 5—Profile 6:30 4—Operation Alphabet 13—College of the Air 6:55 5—Farm Fact* 1:00 4—Today 5—College of the Air 13—Rush Hour. 1:30 5—Moment ot Meditation 1:38 5—Cartoonland 7:45 5—King and Odle 7:50 9—Call to Worship 7:55 9—Newt 11:00 5-13—Captain Kangaroo B—Columbia Lectures 8:30 {>—Deputy and Felix • :00 4— Say When •j —lack La Lanne 1—Romper Room 13—Calendar «:25 4—News 8:30 4—Plaj Your Hunch 5-13—1 Love Lucy 8—Divorce Court 10:00 4—Price Is Right 5-13—McCoys 10:30 4—Concentration 5-13—Pete and Gladys 9—Day In Court 10:55 8—News 11:00 4—Tour First Impression 5-13—Love of Life 9—General Hospital 11:25 5-13—New* 11:30 4—Truth or Consequences 5-13—Search for Tomorrow 9—Seven Keys 11:45 5-13—Guiding Llgbt 11:55 4—Newi U:00 4—Cartoons 5—News 9—Ernie Ford 13—News 13:10 5—Speak Dp 11:15 5—Sports 13—Farm Report 1Z:20 4—News, Markets 5—Local Interview 12:30 4—Accent 6-13—As the World Turn* 8—Father Knows Beat 1:00 4—Best of Post 5-13—Password 8—Movie, "Robben Roost" 1:30 4—Doctors 5-13—House Party 2:00 4—Loretta Young 8-13—To Tell The Truth «:25 5-13—Newi 9—News 2:30 4—You Don't Say 6-13—Millionaire 9—Jane Wyman a:00 4—Match Game 6-13—Secret Storm D- Queen for A Day 3:25 4—News 3:30 4—Make Room For Daddy 8-13— Edge of Night 9—Who do you TrustT 4:00 4—Superman 5—Cousin Ken's Carnival 9—Torey and Friends 13—News Weather 1:15 13—Turban's Land of Magle 4:30 9—Mickey Mouse Club 4—Funtime 6:00 5—Sea Hunt 8—Torey and Friends 13—Quick Draw UoQra* 5:15 8— Whlrly Birds 5:30 4—Dragnet 9—Rebel 13—Scope-Kansas University 5:45 5—News 13—Sporti With Duv Nelso* 6:55 13—Weather 6:00 4—News 5—News 8—News 13—News S:1ii 4—Sports 5-9-Weathm 6:15 4—News with Huntley-Brlnkler 5—Sports 9—News 6:2} 6—Speak-Up 13—New. 6:30 4—Film Feature 5-13—Portrait 9—Wagon Train fl:45 4—Owiner's Box 6:55 4—Baseball — A's vs. Orioles 7:00 5—Face The Community 13—Kansas Legislature 1:30 5-13—Doble Gtllls 8—Going My Way 8:00 4—Perry Como 6-13—Beverly Hillbillies 8:30 6—Dick Van Dyke 8—Our Man ttlgglns 13—Donna Reed 9:00 4—Eleventh Hour 5-13—Circle Theater 9—Naked City 9:55 4—Scoreboard IO;VO 4-5-8-13—News 10:10 6-8—Weather 10:11 4—Johnny Carson 5—Movie, "She Wouldn't Say Yes" 8—Steve Allen 13—Weather 10:20 13—Sports 10:30 13—Lifeline 10:35 13—Stoney Burke 11:35 13—Peter Gunn 11:45 9—Man From Cochlse 12:00 4—News 12:05 4—Unity Dally Word I2:1U 5—Movie, "Magnificent Brute" 12:15 ft—Newt 12:30 9—Almanac Newsree] 13:35 8—Faith for Our Times Rest Eases "Milk Leg" By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I am 78 years old and have milk leg. At first it was swollen from ankle to hip, Rest and elevation were the only treatment. Will exercise help or hinder the condition? The leg is still swollen from ankle to knee after a month of rest.—MRS. M.B. Milk le«, which can occur any time from medium to advanced age is technically known as phlebitis. In plain language, this means that a vein of the leg, and occasionally more than one, has become inflamed, causing swelling of the vein tissues. The swelling reduces circulation. Reduced circulation makes the surrounding tissues swell, too, because fluids which reach them are not as quickly carried away as they should be. . . . Dr. Molner What causes inilk leg? An injury, perhaps. A clot. The accumulation of some sort of inflammation in a vein. Or continued irritation somewhere along the route of the vein. Varicose veins often fall victim to this trouble, and that is one of the very sound reasons for correcting them. Rest is important. So is elevation of the leg because this helps the flow of blood through the inflamed, constricted vein. Pushing blood back toward the heart from the toes is, because of the force of gravity, much more difficult than forcing it back from any other part of the body. The feet are lowest. That's why T .VP rarely sec a "milk arm," but often a "milk leg." Massage, rubbing and exercise (at that .stage of the ailment) can add to the irritation and make the situation worse, just as you wouldn't expect to cure an infected finger by massaging it or exercising it. The inflammation must first subside. At the proper time, elastic bandages help, but you have to wait until they give support to a vein that is regaining healthy vigor. You can't just "squeeze the swelling down." All you would do at that point would be to hinder the healing process. More specific treatments are sometimes good, but they depend on the exact situation. Antibiotics are best if the major problem is a germ- caused inflammation. Anit-inflammatory drugs, as phenylbutazone, can be helpful, and so can some of the newer enzyme preparations which can be taken by mouth. In today's case the swelling, which at first extended to the hip, is now down to the knee. This indicates that the simple but boring treatment of "rest and elevation" is doing some good. There is m quick, dramatic way to correct milk leg, but patience, good judgment and time can work wonders. Doar Dr. Molner: Do you consider it risky for a woman of 68 to have a gall bladder operation? -MRS. S.L. No, I don't. Nor for patients; many years older. When such surgery is necessary, avoidance of it can be risky. Dear Dr. Molner: Please discuss the effects of coffee, de-caffeinized coffee, artificial sweetners and carbonated water as to their effect on the kidneys — R.W.R. Caffein, whether in coffee or other drinks, is a diuretic or kidney stimulator. Therefore excessive coffee can cause frequency of rination. De-caffein- ized coffee and carbonated beverages have no more specific action than the same amount of water. Artificial sweeteners? No effect. "Don't Quit Because Of Arthritis" is the title of my leaflet designed to help all who suffer the aches and pains of arthritis.
