OTTAWA HERALD Page Four Editorials Monday, April 29, 1963 Is Jack A Fraidy Cat? Senator Barry Goldwater has reduced the Cuban debate to the absurdity of small boys shouting "fraidy cat" at one another. President Kennedy pointed out quite accurately last week that the Republican critics of his Cuban policy carefully avoid the basic question of whether they want the United States to go to war over Cuba. The President based his appraisal on remarks of Senator Keating, most vociferous of Cuban critics, and of Vice President Nixon who returned from political limbo to add his voice to the clamor. Keating, speaking to the newspaper editors condemned Kennedy's Cuban policies, but then, when pressed for a firm statement, said he was not for invasion, blockade or quarantine of Cuba. Nixon demanded that the U. S. do "everything This And That by jph necessary" to get Soviet troops out of Cuba but when the editors tried to pin him down on whether he really meant "everything," including nuclear war, he backed off murmuring that he thought "minimal effort" would do the job. Now Goldwater implies that Jack Kennedy is chicken, that the question is "are we afrad to go to war?" Anyone who dosen't fear war in this nucelar age is a raving maniac. But the decisions of the president of the United States, in whose hands the lives of all of us, and much of the world rest, cannot be based on the fear of war, or the lack of it, but upon the wisdom of war. Neither Goldwater nor any of the other critics has made a case, or even attempted to make one, for the invasion of Cuba. — Hutchinson News.

They may not have some of the benefits of civilization but they loll in a wealth of simple comforts that our civilization cost us. The Thai family builds itself a little cottage of the simplest construction which stands partially out over the water on pilings, with a little boat landing to serve as a front porch. There is no occasion to worry about such things as window glass, heating, or plumbing, and the only piece of kitchen equipment worth worrying about is a square of concrete on which a small wood or charcoal fire can be built. There is no reason to go to the shopping center. A constant string of peddlers passes by in canoe-like craft no more than eight feet long. They bring to the door fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, soft drinks and even hot tea, household knickknacks, bread and pastries rice, salt, and dried fish. If it is a fresh fish that is desired nothing but • hook and line and patience are required. For a bath it is necessary only to step down into the water below; and while one is there, he can wash his simple clothing as well as himself. For companionship and conversation the women do not have to track down their friends by telephone. The girls all live in cottage clustered •round. The children take care of themselves and one To Your Good Health another. Incidentally, they are the gayest and hand-wavingest in the world. The near jungle in which to wander is at their back doors, and in front, the water which is never too cold for swimming. They even have the knack of flying their ubiquitous kites over it. To visit a movie, the temple, or a restaurant for a change, it is necessary only to pull the family skiff out from under the house and paddle down around a bend or two. If the man of the house is under the unpleasant necessity of working, there are frequent ferries to take him to and from his place of toil. If he isn't, he can move aside the front of his home, squat on his heels, and be bemused by the heavy traffic in assorted craft which endlessly passes along the narrow waterway. There are the peddlers' tiny boats. Assorted sizes of skiffs. Long lines of small barges towed by tugs. Sight-seeing launches filled with camera-crazy tourists. Scows being pushed along through the shallow water with bamboo poles. Fifty-foot junks, their clumsy-looking hulls arched over with sheet metal to keep the rain off the cargo forward and the family living quarters in the stern. In the parade are occasional speed boats. Ap- ,proximations of gondolas with their rising prows cut off. Sometimes a gray launch of the maritime police. Blunt-nosed craft propelled by long oars used by husband and wife teams, she forward and he aft, skillfully using one foot to handle the rubber. Small boats piled high with stalks of green bananas, tapioca roots, or coconuts. With his wife down below, singing as she does the laundry, his five or six children splashing happily in the water and a betel nut to chew, a sensible man couldn't ask for more. How Fortunate She Is Dr. Holner By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dr. Molner: Your articles on hysterectomy and the Pap test interested me very much. Recently I had a hysterectomy as a result of a Pap test. I went to the Cancer Center because I didn't know a doctor as I've always been in perfect health. A friend later gave me the name of her doctor. Two biopsies were done before the operation. It's hard to explain my feelings just now about all this. It's like a miracle, a dream. The cancer was detected so early. I'm only 30 years old. You see, I just went for this test "out of the blue." Now my doctor calls me "Mrs. Fortunate." - MRS. K.Y. The important thing is that here — very likely — a life was saved. Yes, the cancer might have been discovered later, and in time. Or it might have been discovered too late. I can see nothing wrong with having free tests if they are available. Use them! That's what they are for! Certainly several scores and perhaps several hundreds of women, probably most of them older than Mrs. Fortunate, had Pap tests about the same time she did. and were told there was nothing to worry about. It's the one woman in many that we seek — the one who can be saved if the danger is discovered in time. I hope Mrs. Fortunate keeps telling her friends. She saved herself by following a hunch. By telling .' her story, she can save some others. Dear Dr. Molner: Our daughter is eight months : pregnant. Her doctor insisted on having an X- j ray before he would deliver the baby. Now ev- j eryone tells her she should not have had it done. i What danger is there from having one X-ray?— ;M.D. j I low patience with these calamity howlers who i seem to enjoy frightening other people gratuitous ; ly. Yes, there is danger to the baby (not the i mother) from X-ray exposure early in pregnancy. iThis means the first three to four months. The \ risk is virtually nil in the last month for two r since by then the baby is quite well-developed. I And an X-ray at times can be most important i in assuring the safety of both mother and child I it delivery. Please ignore the comments of * "everyone." Dear Dr. Molner; My father is 88 and has been in perfect health all his life. He still goes to his office, However, his eyesight ii failing rapidly and he was advised to have an operation. He thinks he is too old. I believe you have written that age does not prevent such operations.—L.R. You are right. In past decades the strain was such that older people did not come through surgery too well. This no longer is true. Operations far more drastic than eye surgery now are being done with pateients in their 90's and occa sionally even older. Your father is an unusually vigorous man, obviously. Even if he were frail, I would still tell him to have such an operation. Age no longer is of any great moment for a person in good health. Shingles can be a painful disease! T receive a copy of my pamphlet, "The Facts About Shingles," write Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee 111 enclosing a long self-addressed stamped envelope and 10 cents in coin to cover printing and handling. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO More than 250 Franklin County rural and village school pupils were about to receive 8th grade diplomas. Mrs. Roy Paul 523 S.

Prayer For Today The churches were strengthened in the faith, and they increased in numbers daily. (Acts 16:5. RSV.) PRAYER: Our heavenly Father, we thank Thee for the vision of those early Christians who made all-inclusive the invitation to come and follow Jesus. Help us today to open our churches tc everyone, regardless of race or station in life In His name and for His sake. Amen. M ' ' I ' '' i' ' . ' li 1' ",' '''P. «„„ ,M. tyi-Jinl'iltarthii.'.
