-13 *•' >« OTTAWA HERALD Page Ten Thursday, May 2, 1flfi.1 Editorials The Big Question In Haiti At midweek the situation in torn Haiti appeared to be easing. But experts on conditions in the tiny country fear it is only the lull before another storm. Haiti is a land of 10,000 square miles occupying the western third of the island of Hispaniola. Most of. the country is rugged mountains. Population totals W/» million. Only 11 ;of each 100 persons in Haiti can read, giving the country the highest illiteracy rate in Latin America. Comprised of 90 percent mulattoos and - Negroes, Haiti has one of the stormiest histories on record. During one four year " period five presidents were deposed. One lost out on a bomb, another was poisoned and three were deposed, U. S. Marines occupied the country for 19 years to keep order. They were pulled out in 1934. The current president — he is actually a dictator — is Francois Duvalier. His term is supposed to expire on May 15, according to the country's constitution. This And That by jph Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel* 5-13, CBS Channel 9, AIM Thursday But Latin American countries are prone to disregard constitutions. True to form, Dictator Duvalier has found a loophole and has declared himself president for an extended term, until 1967. As in most like countries, the army is the key to power. In efforts to keep control, the dictator has kicked out many of the high ranking officers and has placed his bid for power in the militia which he is expanding rapidly. I Over last weekend his opposition gun-i ned the car in which his two children j were riding. The children escaped, but in the ensuing terrorism, nine persons; died. " | As the situation now stands, remnants | of the army are not about to allow the dictator to extend his term in office. So only turmoil is in the offing. That is unless this country, the Organization of American States, step in ( to restore order. Such actions raise the question whether or not in political unrest, revolution, we arc our brother's keepers. Everyone Has A Cause DELHI — Mr. Mcnon, which here is an even more common mime limn Smith is in the United Slates, is a slim, brown little man who talks with mnchinc-gun Hpccd and is always hopping around like a spnrrow. Me wears snndnls which he .is always slipping off to cool his feel on the concrete floors; n dhoti, which is i\ length of lightweight, homespun cotton clotJi, and which he wraps around his waist and nulls the end up between his legs for lucking in al the rear: a white cotton jacket buttoned up to his nock and extending down to his knees and a white Gandhi cap. Mr. Menon is general manager of a group of Indian language newspapers which I had best not identify, I hnvc come to know him very well, This means 1 * ^H know him well enough to appro * jj ciato I don't know him nl all ' ' ^ What was it Kipling said about East and West twain never gelling together? Anyhow, Mr. Mcnon is typical of the Indian newspaper executive. In India Die newspaper business is not a business but a cnusc. In Indian journalism there nre always wheels within wheels and underneath n chip which hides not one but several bucjs. If there is any figure in it who is there solely because he has a knack for it and because he cnn make a reasonable profit ou| of it, I am yet to meet him. The editors and publishers here hnvc grcnl fervor, a devotion to their profession which is matched by their absence of understanding of the mechanics of it, and very high principles except when dealing with the newsprint allocation or lux authorities. When it comes to equipment and machinery, they nre such babes in the woods that they shouldn't be permitted in the presence of salesmen unchaperuned, I cite one all too typical illustration. In a Dellvi at the moment there is standing an extremely modern press of European manufacture. It was six months after it was assembled before anyone could bo found who knew how to run it. Then it was discovered the press is useless without supplementary equipment which will increase the cost by half again. And it will be at least two or three years before, an import permit can be obtained for the accessories. Despite, the managerial shortcomings, however, there are a few newspapers, particularly the ones with large circulations and printed mostly in English, which are highly profitable. There are more, though, whose days are numbered. Others that are insolvent but don't know it because their books arc so meager and poorly kept. More still which arc losing largely but don't cure particularly because the cause for which they front takes can.' of the deficit. Thn causes are many and devious. Pnlilkal par- lies that range all the wny from the Communists to right-wing Congress members who consider Pandit Nehru dangerously socialistic. Individual politicians of consequence. Language groups. Religious groups. Industrialists who (rent Ihnir newspapers ns their press agent. The lunatic fringe which here is polty indeed. Among tlinm nil then- arc nl least three times more newspapers in India than either an informed public or economics warrants. There nro more than twice ns mnny dnilv newspapers in India ns (bore nre in the United Stales, bul their combined cir- culnlion is less than that of the New York City papers alone. Time will take care of this, however, through the next 25 years. And in the ntirilion the big fish will Imve the marked habit of swallowing the little fish ns nature decrees, On, yes. Mr. Menun. His papers, of course, have their cniise. It is technically to produce income for welfare distribution by (lie charitable foundation Hint owns them. But actually it is to promote the political careers of (he members of the board of trustess. Unfortunately, when the ycnr ends, there isn't any money left for charity. But Mr. Menon tries very hard. AuId Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO A daughter was bom to Mr. and Mrs. F, W. Barton of near Centropolis. Mrs. Everett Edmumls"n was enjoying strawberries from' her garden. Word was received of the death of Rev. Horace McTassell at loin. He wns formerly pastor of SI. Paul's A. M. E.

JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: Is there any way to make a person slop snoring? This may sound funny but it isn't. My husband is a strong, healthy man but he snores every breath he takes, and loud. He tries hard not to, but I get so little sleep.—MRS. O.B I know it isn't funny. Snoring is a fluttering of the soft tissues which relax during sleep. Sometimes a different position — not lying on the back — helps Sometimes keeping the mouth closed helps by changing the air flow. (Chin straps have been used for this.) Again, there may be an obstruction of nose or throat passages, so a visit to the doctor is advisable. But there is no surefire answer for all cases. Sometimes ear plugs ( or cotton in the ears will help. In the other person's ears, I mean. Dear Dr. Molner: Kindly advise how to get rid of pinworm in a child once and for all. He has been under a doctor's care, has taken medicine, scrubs his nails, we wash door knobs, etc., but he still becomes reinfected and it is affecting his nervous system and school work.—MRS. E. H. M. There is no way to do it "once and for all" ixcept to stamp out the sources from which he Becomes reinfected. It is highly probably that someone else in the household, maybe several people, are infected but do not know it. I'd have the whole family treated at the same time. Just recently a mother complained of rectal discomfort. Pinworm was found. The children were checked and all had pinworm. The whole family is being treated simultaneously. I strongly suggest that you read my booklet, "Pinworm — the Commonest Pest." (Send 20 cents in coin and a stamped, self-addressed envelope to Dr. Molner, in care of Box 158, Dundee, III., and ask for "the pinworm booklet.") Dear Dr. Molner: What can be done for cold sores? I frequently break out with four or five of them on my lip. Some people believe this to be hereditary and others think it is a nervous condition.— J.M. ( Neither heredity nor nerves is the cause. It's a Lane News Group Gives Gift During Get Together By MRS. GAIL CHAMBERS The final study on prayer was held Monday afternoon.

There is considerable mrf. ical opinion to the effect that some people are exposed to it in childhood but do not acquire any immunity to it as they do to other germs. The virus remains (according to this belief, which is plasuble) and breaks out into a new cold sore when resistance laes, as when you have a cold, get too tired, etc. A smallpoz vaccination stops the trouble for some people. For others, it doesn't, and the application of a drying agent, as a camphor lotion, is about all that you can do. Dear Dr. Molner: What causes a fungus infection over the body? I have had ultra-violet treatments for it, but still have some spots left. Will this infection come back or is there a sure cure? My doctor advised spending at least an hour a day in the sun. Is this a'help?—A.M. These fungi (something on the order of mushrooms, on a microscopic scale) flourish when they happen to land in a place that suits them^ sometimes the skin. The feet (athlete's foot) and the ears (Fungus infections are farily common there) are moist, warm areas, but fungi can spread to other areas. It is less usual to hear of a special type of fungus. The best cure is to make sure all of it is driven away. Since sunlight contains a lot of ultra-violet, your doctor has simply pointed out a way to make your treatment less expensive. Reply to an unsigned letter: That rectal bleeding is a clear sign of something that needs treatment. Tell a doctor about it at once. Treating yourself is impossible and delay may be very dangerous. Fat! My leaflet, "The Lost Secret of Reducing tells how to get rid of it the easy way. For your copy write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, HI., enclosing a long, self addressed, stamped envelope and 5 cents in coin to cover cost of handling. Prayer For Today When the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Ptter and John. (Acts 8:15. RSV). PRAYER: May we never be guilty, our Father, of placing a stumbling block in the way of any who seek to worship Thee in spirit and in truth. Help us to keep in mind always the example of the apostles as they carried out Thy Command to "make disciples of all nations." In Jesus' name. Amen. Land Given For Waterfowl Park WASHINGTON (AP)-Bills authorizing the Interior Department to give to the Kansas Forestry, Fish and Game Commission 572.68 acres of land south of Haskell Institute near Lawre;«ee, Kan., have been introduced in the House. Reps. Robert F. Ellsworth and William H, Avery, Kansas Republicans, offered similar bills providing for conveyance of the land originally acquired by the government for the Indian school. The land, which Ellsworth said is no longer needed by the school or the Bureau of Indians Affairs, would be used by the Kansas commission for migratory waterfowl wintering and production grounds. A similar bill is pending in the Senate. Modern Caveman Sets New Record BUSSELTON, Australia (AP)Wyndham Rendell, 20, a modern day caveman, admits it would be good to see daylight again.
