OTTAWA HERALD Page Pour Wednesday, April 24, 1963 Editorials Big Rustling Business Last weekend law officers in western Kansas cracked a cattle rustling ring, arresting four men who had been stealing cattle in five different counties. This week an article in the Emporia Gazette reports that several cattlemen in Lyons County, a few miles west of here, have been victims of calf rustlers. If the figures were ever totaled, we would wager that cattle rustling is big business in Kansas. The Colorado Cattlemen's Association reports this kind of thievery is increasing in that state. The : Texas Rangers admit that several million dollars worth of cattle are stolen in that state each year. The modern rustlers are equinped , with fast-moving trucks. They can steal , cattle in one part of the state, then use ' paved hiehways to transport the stolen merchandise to markets many miles distant. This And That by ]ph Recently, some rustlers have become airborn. One such case is a matter of record in Alabama where a Helicopter pilot deftly cut out a choice calf, landed, shot the animal and stuffed the carcass aboard. In the minds of many, cattle rustling is something that belongs in the old days of the West. Actually it is a growing crime that should be cause for concern. While greater vigilance on the part of cattlemen and law enforcement officers would help reduce the losses on the farm, it is some cause for wonder that Kansas has only two brand inspectors. For a business which represents millions of dollars a year, supplies a big share of state tax revenue, it appears to us the Kansas cattle business deserves a large force in the brand inspection department. One Dance Is Enough BANGKOK — In Thailand indigenous classical dancing for centuries was the sport of the kings. It was considered too good for the people. Now lhat there is no longer an absolute monarch, Thai classical dancing is available to the people. But they couldn't be less interested. They much prefer the twist. So nowadays classical dancing here is for the birds. Those migratory birds, the tourists. Performances of it are available several evenings weekly, and they alone maintain what otherwise would be a vanished item of native culture. The visitors watch it with bewilderment, incomprehension, and boredom. Only after they return home do they enthuse. - I spent last evening watching the classical dancing. I am a sucker for such things. My repot is superficial. I can only say that it has resemblances to the Indian and Ceylnese versions in that much depends on the crick of a finger, the turn of a toe. or a jerk of the neck. Nowhere else is Thai dancing duplicated. Perhaps nowhere else does anyone care to try. The traditional Thai dances also may be said to be akin to Russian ballet, although the relationship is no more than that of third cousins. In ballet the danseuse jogs around on the points of her toes then breaks into a dash culminating in a flying leap into the arms of her partner. He is a pretty, well-muscled youth with no hair on his chest. Afterwards he displays his virtuosity by leaping across the stage like an antelope, giving the illusion that momentarily he is rising above the law of gravitation. What I witnessed here was nothing like that. It was all in slow motion. It was both flat foot and bare foot. Except for a pleasantly performed by two men in demonic masks and fantistically rich bloomer suits, which was described as depicting a battle between the devil and a monkey officer, the dancers were all girls. They were charming girls with lovely faces and feet that seemed about three sizes too large for them. What lay between was impossible to tell. They wore knee-length robes with pantalettes extending below made of havy, bright-colored cloth elaborately brocaded with gold and silver. They had two-feet-high headdresses with the delicate, slender lines of Thai temples. Ever so slowly they minced about. They struck postures. They made deliberate motions with their spread fingers. They crooked their fingers. They employed neck gestures. They bent their left knees to bring their fet a few inches apart above the floor, then spread their toes apart. The audience seemed to love that one. The dances were not incomprehensible. There was a program to explain that they were performing the Fawn Marn, the Ram Wong, the Sat-Char- tri, and the Daovadung's dance which "describes the celestial beauties of heaven." For amplification there were re marks by a serious-voiced young woman with heavily rimmed glasses of the sort who seems to show up at classical dance evenings any place in the world. There was accompanying music, of course. The instruments were an Oriental aboe, two variants of xylophones, a tinkling bell, and two sets of drums. I can only say of the musicians that they produced the strangest of sounds and took their work very seriously. All in all, my introduction to the classical dancing of Thailand was one of those memorable experiences a person wouldn't particularly care to repeat. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Mayor E. V. Gibson and Commissioners 0. L. Hankins and Clarence Sheldon went to Aurora, Til., to see an Austin Street Sweeper in operation. The city was comtemplating the purchase of a sweeper. Marilyn McCrea, 9, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. Robert McCrea, 418 S. Sycamore, was ill with scarlet fever. Hal Davis, 534 S. Poplar, told police that someone stole 200 feet of garden hose from his home. 50 YEARS AGO Painters were busy redecorating the women's rcstroom in the northwest corner of the courthouse basement. A movement was afoot to consolidate five school districts and build a $25,000 school building at Quenemo to serve the five districts. Attorneys at the Franklin County courthouse were having a problem. They hung coats and hats in the corridor east of the courtroom, the coats and hats gathered considerable dust during the course of trials. The lawyers pooled their money and purchased a clothes brush. Prayer For Today Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. (John 6:47.) PRAYER: Dear heavenly Father, forgive us for too often apologizing to Thee instead of repenting. Help us to turn away from sin. May we accept Thy great love and practice it by helpfulness to others. In the precious name of Christ, through whom we have eternal life. Amen. Laff-A-Day 4-Z3 irj Kiiy: Vwluro Syn.lii.ili-. Im.. I'Xvl. W..H.I n,:l'i> (o.m.1.

The Kansas City Athletics meet the Baltimore Orioles at Baltimore. Channel 4, at 6:55. For western fans, the "Wagon Train" show has a bit of romance this evening on Channel 9, at 6:30. Two young passengers of the wagon train fall in love. Not exactly a new theme, but in these westerns the mountain scenery make up for a lot of other shortcomings. At 9 p.m., on Channels 5 and 13 a documentary show titled "A Square Mile of Hope," sounds interesting. It deals with the work of the East Harlem Protestant Parish in lending a helping hand to one of New York's worst slum areas. Late movies will include "She Wouldn't Say Yes," a 1945 film starring Rosalind Russell.

To Your Good Health Canker Sore Puzzle Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: What causes canker sores? How can they be cured or prevented?—D. W. There are various notions about the cause — and maybe you've heard of the medical axiom: the more cures that are proposed for something, the less we really know about it. When we know the exact cause, it then becomes easy to establish the exact cure. So we have lots of ideas about canker sores. It may be that several causes are responsible, or maybe a combination of them. Allergy is often indicated—Sensitivity to some food or other- citrus fruits, chocolate, nuts, etc. Keeping a "food dairy" is helpful in trying to connect outbreaks of cankers with something you have eaten. The problem is common among women, and sometimes it seems to be related to the menstrual cycle. Some think cankers are a result of low-grade infection. Emotional turmoil has been sugested. With such a variety of suspected causes, no wonder we have a variety of answers. Remedies which, in my experience, seem to have been suc- essful in some cases, include: Touching the spots with silver nitrate. Avoiding foods which have been adequately proved to be offenders. Antibiotic lozenges; also locto-bacillus tablets. In very severe and painful cases, a short course of cortisone treatment. Drastic, but sometimes it works. Dear Dr. Molner: Is it possible to be a borderline diabetic? And if so can this prevent a wound from healing after surgery? I was declared a diabetic over a year ago but the doctor has not found any sugar since, and I have not been on my diet for several months.—MRS. H. P. These days we have little trouble in getting di- abeics to heal promptly, because we take care to see that the disease is controlled. Yes, there are borderline diabetics. A better term could be "mild cases of diabetes." But it's diabetes all the same. The fact that you haven't shown any sugar (in the urine, 1 presume) doesn't mean that the diabetes has disappeared You'd be very wise to have a blood sugar test to find out just how you stand. I don't approve of giving up your diet simply because sugar hasn't been detected lately. The goal is to prevent it from showing up. So, especial ly if you are overweight, get back on the diet (You'll find that any infection, even a common cold, readily causes sugar to appear.) In short don't press your luck too far. Dear Dr. Molner: What is uremic poisoning?— MRS. S. J. It results from faulty functioning of the kidneys Uric acid and certain nitrogen compounds are waste which the kidneys filter out and — nor mally — discharge in urine. When something prevents removal of these toxic materials, poisoning results. NOTE TO S.D.: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a progressive degenerative disease of the spina cord. NOTE TO MRS. L. H.: Yes, there is such thing as a "nervous cough." We all have our individual forms of responding physically to tension But unless you have been examined to determine the facts, it's risky to brush off a chronic cough as due to "nerves" or any other simple excuse. Tu berculosis, cancer, bronchiectasis, emphysema heart trouble are all possible causes of the "ner vous" or even "cigarette" cough. How to get rid of leg cramps and foot pains' The answer may be simple. Write to Dr. Molner Box 158, Dundee, 111., for a copy of the leaflet "How To Stop Leg Cramps and Foot Pains," en closing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover cost of printing a« handling. Kathy Grayson Has Opera In Mind Now By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Kathy Grayson has come back to town as star of her first Broadway show, "Camelot," and filmland society signaled the event with one of the most brilliant parties of the season. The hostess: Kathryn's longtime chum, Ann Miller. The place: the Beverly Hilton's L'Escoffier room. The menu: fruit served on half coconut in husk, filet of beef, spumoni molds decorated with likenesses of Miss Grayson in spun sugar. The guests: Glenn Ford with Rhonda Fleming, Jcanettc MacDonald and Gene Raymond, Donna Reed, Anna Jeffreys, Robert Sterling Rita Hayworlh, Dorothy Malone Jacques Bergerac, Cesar Romero Efrem Zimbalist Jr., Peggy L.PC, J°hn Vivyan, etc., etc. Also three lovely widows June Allysun, Kay Gable Edie Adams. The entertainment was impromptu. Such songbirds as Anna Maria Alberghetti, Kay* Starr, Jane Powell, Edie Adams and Rhonda Fleming trilled a number or two. The guest of honor responded with a Puccini aria. Kathryn's choice of selection was .significant. Having proven herself in films and on the musical stage, she is now eying opera. She has a commitment with the San Francisco Opera to make her operatic debut after she concludes her year's run in "Camelot." Kathryn believes there is no reason why opera couldn't be a paying operation instead of being shackled to perennial deficits. "For one thing, why should the opera bill change every night?" she asked. "It's terribly expensive to carry so many sets and change them after each performance. Why couldn't you run one popular opera for a week or longer? If it is good enough, it will draw. "I'm convinced that opera can reach a wider audience with the addition of some showmanship. Ottawa Herald 1962 FIRST IN KANSAS 106-iog B. Main Published dally except Sunday ano Holidays.

(AP)-For th< second straight year a Kansan has contributed $500 to the intern al revenue service. Robert M. Cutts, assisted IR! district director here, withhel the donor's name but said he i a businessman of modest mean whose tax return has never been challenged. In a letter accompanying th donation, the man wrote that ". I am still of the opinion that we live under a wonderful system o government...if we taxpayers would chip in a little occasional^ instead of looking for every loop hole...our country's finances wouh be in a little better shape." Cutts said there is no evidenc that this is "conscience" mone; from a tax dodger. Cutts said the government ha a fund set up to receive sucl donations and that the monej goes into the general treasury And he noted that such contri butions are tax deductible on nex year's return.
