OTTAWA HERALD Pag« Four Friday, April 26, 1963 Editorials •r Dual Purpose Dams .,#. Kansas may be somewhat parched and tf many may be wishing for rain, but even T- ; with this in mind, the remarks of a speaker in Manhattan yesterday are most pertinent. The speaker was Col A. P. Rollins, Jr., of the Army Engineers. The head of this district discussed development the past decade in Kansas as far as flood control and water conservation are concerned. "Kansas," he said, "is well on the way now towards realizing the full potential of its water resources." He outlined the progress made here in Ottawa, at Pomona reservoir, at Tuttle Creek, Perry and Milford as well as protective works for cities such as Topeka, Manhattan, Kansas City and Atchison. One fact which stands out was that concerning Kanopolis Reservoir on the Smoky Hill. Colonel Rollins pointed out that this reservoir was completed in 1949. Since then it has prevented flood damages amounting to more than the entire cost of the project. The district engineer did not mention *fc- ,i This And That by jph the history of "big dam" opposition that the Corps of Engineers has experienced. Nor did he say that some of the opposition lingers. The very history of Kanopolis should put to rest this opposition. Another point which the colonel brought out that should allay the suspicions of opponents is that the 1962 attendance at Corps reservoirs alone totaled 125 million. It is opposed to the 5 million of 15 years ago. One further point the colonel made, particularly appropriate is such dry times as these, is that "as I look at a map of Kansas, dotted with bodies of water devoted to useful purposes, I am reminded of a hot dusty day 25 years ago when I went across the state by train. Little did I think then that some day Kansas would become a land of lakes such as is now coming to pass." Too often we look upon big dams as preventive, structures which keep away the floods. Seldom do we realize they have another purpose, that of holding back necessary water against the dry days such as we are now experiencing. Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-IS, CBS Channel 9, ABC Friday Klongs Soon Memories ; BANGKOK — There are many more canals — klongs, they are called — here than there are in Venice. Not only that, but the entire surrounding plain is crisscrossed by them. The klongs in ,Bankok were dug when King Rama I began build- ;!ing the city about the time the declaration of Independence was signed. Some of those across the countryside are hundreds of years older '^Originally the klongs were the * drily way of getting from here to .there during the wet season, and all yearihey provided the cheapest and most convenient way for the farmers to get their products I-- to market. Today they have more numerous uses. One of them early every morning is the site of a floating market which is one of the principal ..tourist attractions. They furnish ^"drainage for a naturally swampy area. They offer fijfiahing-grounds. To a minor degree they permit $• irrigation, *%;Jlw klongs offer swimming for the youngsters ^fpiild more utilitarian baths for their parents. They jServe at various points both as water supply and visewers. They provide means by which small skiffs '?can .distribute throughout the city the cargoes of •itSie steamers that have anchored at the mouth of ! '4h£ river a few miles downstream. V* But; civilization in Bangkok itself has now march- jrid, on to the point where the klongs are getting 'Jin its way. To construct new streets it is neces- JPH sary to make fills across as many ss a score of klongs. The fills now cross many klongs at frequent intervals. They serve as dams, naturally, which destroy the use of the canals as waterways, but they leave stretches of water between. The water gradually becomes stagnant, is covered by a thick, green scum broken by the tops of heaps of rubbish, smells frightful, and serves as a wonderful breeding ground for mosquitoes. Things like this are not conducive to good public health. So the klongs, picturesque and useful as some of them still are, seem on the way to becoming another sacrifice to progress. But in their disappearance they are making some final contributions to the attractiveness and smooth functioning of the Bangkok of an early tomorrow. The streets of this city, which is now approaching 2'4 million in population, were originally narrow. But most of them had klongs paralleling them. It is much cheaper to fill in a klong than it is to buy improved property and raze its structures to provide space for a broad trafficway. So the klongs are being filled in right and left to permit narrow streets to be transformed into boulevards which the existing traffic crush makes essential. What is even nicer, from the local standpoint. American aid money is and has been available for many of the major projects. Consequently, while the klongs one day may be only a memory, it will be a very pleasant one. : To Your Good Health Mononucleosis A Virus Dr. Molner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: What about the blood disease known as mononucleosis? Is it spread only by saliva? Can it recur, or may one have it once and become immune? It seems to be spreading among teenagers.— L. F. Infectious mononucleosis is a virus infection. It is characterized (and thus named) by the presence in the blood of a larger number of white cells, called mononuclear. A blood test is an excellent way of diagnosing a suspected case, but this does not imply that treat- merit' of the blood is necessary. T Rather, monoculeosis is a self- limiting disease. Like the common cold, you get it and you gel over it, and there isn't any specific cure. Whether it is spread "only by saliva" is not known, but it does spread from person to person, especially among young people, and often among college students in dormitories of troops in military installations. The characteristics include fatigue, swollen and tender glands (it is also called "glandular fever") and sometimes a transient hepatitis — that is, a liver condition, but not to be confused with the more serious types. Plenty of rest and wholesome food, and precautions against complications, are the essential treat- Taking the ailment too lightly isn't wise, ecause relapses can occur. On the other hand, it isn't the type of ailment hat should frighten anyone. It clears up, leaving after-effects. One attack usually confers im- lity, which very possibly may be why we see /among young people and rarely among older I question whether it really is "spreading among teenagers," but suspect, rather, that it is being diagnosed more readily instead of being passed off as something else. Exactly how the virus is transmitted is not known. Mononucleosis has been called "the kissing, Disease" because of the age of its most frequent victims, but that doesn't explain its spread in non-coeducational schools or army barracks. It may spread pretty much the way colds do, or measles, or whatnot. Sir: I have developed an itchy condition of hips and legs. I have tried soda and starch baths without success. Have you any suggestions? I am 80 and in good condition otherwise.— C. N. I'd see a dermatologist to make sure that you haven't fallen victim to some skin ailment. If he says no that it's just a result of the drying of skin which comes as we get older, he can suggest other remedies, among them special soaps, lanolin creams or bath oils. I'm twenty-odd years younger than you are, but find that a cocoa-butter based soap helps me Troubled with varicose veins? To make sure you are doing all you can to relieave the problem, write to Dr. Molner, Box 168, Dundee, 111., requesting my booklet, "How To Deal With Vari- case Veins," enclosing a long self-addressed stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover the cost of handling. AuJd Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Earl Carlson, fishing in the Marais des Cygnes river, caught a 6-pound spoonbill fish. Jack Certain, 13, son of M^-. and Mrs. Clyde certain, 403 Ash, was ill with scarlet fever. Lt. Col. Rife of the United States Army was here looking at horses for the Army. Harry Buckels was arranging a horse sale for the Army officer. 50 YEARS AGO Mi!o Crawford quit his job at the Santa Fe freight house and went to Bloomington, 111. Harry Veach and Clyde Latchem made a motorcycle trip to Baldwin. Mrs. M. Bement went to Fort Scott to attend a meeting of the Royal Neighbors lodge. Prayer For Today Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. (John 14:1.)

One of the most unusual incidents of the trip happened Monday night in Cleveland. Right in the middle of the concert a hamster made its appearance between a couple of organ pedals. During the hasty intermission which started immediately two men tried to capture the little animal. But it scurried back beneath the audience. The concert continued. Once again, the hamster stole the show during the last group of numbers. This time it was captured and the concert continued. The choir sings in Poughkeepsie, N. Y., tonight. The singers will get back to Ottawa next Tuesday evening.
