OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Thursday, April 25, 1963 Interesting Comparison The other evening in nearby Olathe 43 persons attended a meeting at that city's high school. It was a question and answer session. Main topic presented by the school board members was a proposed expansion of {he high school. Patrons of the district will be asked soon to approve an $830,000 bond issue. The architect spoke of the functions of the proposed expansion. One board member told the small group present that "if the bond issue fails, the board will plan immediately for another election, another and another . . . because the need is so great." Another board member explained that the city "must have schools, churches, parks, before industry can pour in. You can't just grow, then build facilities later." Among questions asked were ones pertaining to transportation, why the This And That by jph board planned a one-story building instead of two, what about the auditorium, what of the present school budget, and, of course, the location. Other than the name of the city, the situation was much the same as that meeting which occurred at Lincoln School in Ottawa last fall prior to the first high school bond vote here, even to the architect. Only real difference was in the amount of the issue, smaller because Olathe contemplates only an addition. Like Ottawa, it's a safe bet the school board was disappointed only 43 persons turned out. There were a few more here. Also, like Ottawa, patrons were acquainted with the great need and were told that growth of a community doesn't just happen. It must be planned in advance. In more respects than not, Olathe's situation parallels Ottawa's. It will be interesting to see the voter reaction in that community to school needs. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel* 6-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Thursday Another Round Of Mekong BANGKOK — The Thais are slightly smaller, lighter in color, and gayer than their Malay neighbors to the south. They have a somewhat higher standard of living as well, which is natural for a food surplus nation. They are more civilized, too. They have strong, iced coffee served to them at intervals through their working day. If they are business executives, their working day is not permitted to interfere greatly with their other interests. They arrive at nine-thirty or ten and stay at their desks no more than three hours. They may come back, after a leisurely lunch and a siesta, for an hour or two more, but only if they feel like it. . The Thais are most hospitable to strangers and are passionately loyal to their families and their friends. If the president of a local firm should find his treasurer had looted the safe, he likely would say, "So he took the money, but he probably needed it, and moreover he is my cousin. So what?" I have had a generous sampling of Thai hospitality as guest of half a dozen of the executives of the newspaper with which I have been involved here. We dined under the stars in a cool, evening breeze outside a restaurant a mile or so out of the city. The breeze was refreshing. It is now midsummer here, with a temperature range of 80 and 100. ,, They introduced me to "mekong" which is a rice whisky. My hosts, being Buddhists, have To Your Good Health none of the Hindus' or Muslims' religous scruples against intoxicants. On the contrary, they lap them up with great relish. I can't exactly describe the taste of mekong, but it roused vivid memories of prohibition days. It isn't so strong as bourbon, but after you have joined in several toasts, you become aware it has alcoholic content. The menu was a blend of Thai and Chinese with a strong emphasis on seafood for which the restaurant is celebrated. It included lobster claws, mussels boiled in sea-weed, scallops, Peking duck, and prawns. Each was served as a separate course from a large, heaping bowl. It is etiquette for everyone (o dive into the common bowl with his fork and soup spoon repeatedly for a bite or two at a time. These each seasons with his choice of the half dozen hot sauces in small saucers surrounding his plate. When he has had as much as he wishes, he carefully scrapes the shells, bones, or whatever back into the now empty bowl, has another drink of mekong and picks his teeth while waiting for the next course. The food was excellent and the company equally so. The conversation was casual and congenial. I personally found only one flaw in it. The youngest member of the party asked me my age, as Orientals so frequently do, and I truthfully told him 61. He seemed disappointed. "I thought you were at least 65 or 70," he observed. After that I think few would blame me for asking for another small drink of mekong. 8:00 *—See Hunt t—Quick Draw McOri 13—Magic Ranch 6:15 G—Whirl; Bird* »:80 4—Dragnet ft—Rebel 13—Sporti 5:46 5— News, Walter CronMU 13—Sport* 6:55 13—Weather 8:UU 4— New« 6—New« B— Ncwi 13—News 6:10 4—Sports 5-9—Weather 8:16 4- Hunuey-Brlnkley Repo" 5—Sports 0—News «:2S 5—Speak>0p >i:.10 4—Wide Country 9—Ozzle and Harriet 5-13—Fair Exchange 7 Mill 5-13—Perry Mason 9—Donna Keert 1:30 4—Dr. Klldare 9—Leave It To Beaver s.-oo 5-13—Twilight Zone 9—My Three Sons »:30 4—Hazel 9— McHales Navy «:IM> 4—Andy Williams 5-13—Nurses 9—Alcoa Premier 0:00 4-5-9-13—Newi 10:10 5-9—Weather ID: It 4—Johnny Carson 5—Movie, "Sutlers Gold" 9—Steve Allen 13— Wettber 10:20 4-13—Sports 10:30 13— Lifeline >::t5 13—77 Sunset Strip 11:35 13—Pete» Gunn 11:45 9—Man Prom Cochlse 12:00 4—News 12: Oft 4—Dnlty Dally Word 12:10 5—Movie, "Grand Exit 1 ' 13:10 9—News 13:30 9—Almanac Newsreel \2:85 fl—Faith for Our Times Athlete's Foot Stubborn Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: I have had athlete's foot on and off for many years. Is there a cure? I soak my feet in epsom salts, which makes them feel better.-G.M.H. One word of warning: First be sure it is athlete's foot and not some other skin ailment. Athlete's foot is a fungus infection. It can be recurrent and stubborn. Some skins are particularly sensitive to this fungus — or maybe we should say "these fungi," because there can be variations. Getting rid of it is a two-fold job. First scrupulous foot hygiene. Then medication. By foot hygiene I don't mean merely washing the feet, but changing socks daily. (Oftener may help.) Iron the socks. The heat sterilizes them. Fungus, which likes moisture, can't necessarily be destroyed just by washing. Since the fungus burrows not only into the skin tut into anything warm and moist, you can be fairly sure that it can linger in your shoes and slippers. So make this a rule: Always wear clean, ironed socks even around the house in slippers. This will protect you against reinfection. It's helpful to alternate shoes so they can dry out for several days between wearing. They should be sprinkled with one of the many anti-fungus foot powders. Soaking the feet in epsom salts may be soothing, but it won't cure the fungus. A solution (one part in 5,000) of potassium permanganate is effective as a fungus-killing foot bath, but it leaves a brown stain on skin, towels and even the pan you use. It is also a poison and must be handled with care. "A stainless solution as a foot bath is a tablespoon of boric acid to a pint of water." In recent years a drug called griseofulvin, which can be taken by mouth, has proved very successful in curing some (although not all) kinds of fungus. The drug must be prescribed by a physician, with the dosage correctly calculated. For less severe cases, the various anti-fungal foot powders and ointments are helpful. When athlete's foot keeps recurring over a span of years, the quickest and surest answer is to have a dermatologist (skin specialist) outline the best treatment for your case, and then to follow the prescribed routine meticulously. : Deair Dr. Molner: What is meant by a cyclo- thymic personality? I have a friend who has been so described. He is also subject to psychotic epi- sodes. Is it possible to overcome the problem without having shock therapy?—W.S.L. Cyclotliymic means having alternate moods of elation and depression. Psychotic episodes are periods of mental illness. Whether shock therapy is required depends on the severity of the case. It frequently is part of the treatment. Dear Dr. Molner: Are syphilis and gonorrhea the only venereal diseases? If not, why are they the only ones you ever hear warnings about? Just curious.—S.A. No, but the others are less frequent or less perilous. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO The N'eedlecraft Art Club held a meeting al the home of Miss Freda Wilson. W .G. Ransom of Homewood sod a Guernsey bull, Ransom Lilypad's Lester 254013, to R. E. Merchant and W. W. Vaughn of Baldwin.

A team of bay horses hitched to a Bennett ice wagon, became frightened while standing in the 200 block on Maple, and ran all the way to the Kast 7th Street bridge. They hit a telephone pole at 7th and Maple, demolishing the ice wagon, but they made the turn onto 7th Street. Prayer For Today Ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26.) PRAYER: Precious Lord, take our hands anc lead us into the everlasting kingdom prepared by Thy loving Son, our Redeemer. Help us joyously to tell others of this wonderful gift of eternal life, the inheritance of all who will believe. In Jesus' name. Amen.

No Waiting OnGI Home Loan Qualified ex-servicemen who want to make a direct loan from the Veterans Administration for home purchases can do so now without the usual waiting period. So says E. J. Klag, director of the Veterans Administration Center, Wichita. The money is available now for use in 70 Kansas counties. Direct! loans are made only to those ex- GI's who live in non-metropolitan areas and who cannot obtain financing from private lending agencies despite a good credit rating. "For the first time since the direct loan program got underway nearly 13 years ago, there is no waiting list at the center, and we are actually at a point where we are looking for qualified borrowers. Approved VA loan closers have been named for each of the 70 counties and applications will be processed quickly," Klag said. The VA official explains this desirable situation for the borrower has come about due to increased funds made available to the direct loan program during the past year. This resulted from prior legilsation establishing a regular flow of funds. For many months now, VA direct loan money haa been flowing into small towns and rural areas where normally mortgage money is difficult to lay hands on. VA-guaranteed loans in Kansas are running well ahead of last year. "With this situation," Klag declares, "our usual large waiting list of prospective direct loan applicants has been exhausted."
