WATERFALL DOtfN'T l£AVE MUCH irVlHfr FOR KOLLERIN6*, Ever Write The Man? A Blythoville housewife scanned a front page and came across new troop need estimates for Vietnam. "Oh, no!" she said, almost involuntarily, as she read whore another 200,000 men might he needed there. "Doesn't the President realize that the people don't feel that awny about the war there anymore?" she asked. "Is it the fault of people like me? I've never written the President, . .I've never even written my Congressman." This raises a number of questions: Has in fact, the public soured on the Vietnam war? If so, then our housewife has raised an important ) reason why pursuit of the war is goini,' in the fashion it is. . .which is escalation, an escalation, by the way, which evidently will be matched by the Viet Cong and North A'ietnam. Jf the American people have changed their minds about the war, they should let their Congressman and President know. If they haven't chanced their minds, it miffht be a good idea to let them know that, too. Here are the addresses: Congressman K. C. Gainings House Office Building Washington, D. C. * President Lyndon Johnson The White House Washington, D. C. fj't (Ballot* r,MliJpr-t to crtttinp. himctrr, anfl must bft tlgntfl. iti-nrn. 10 me fittHti *rr wrii'imiffl. They *r» Slpnnlurr will not be printed at the request or (Jit 1 writer No letters will be reiuriiffl.) Dear Mr. Editor: You have been duped! You have been hornswoggled! You have been taken! The Yankees have done it again. Mr. Editor, you 'Jiave been sold down the river. Under the guise of public service you have managed lo Rive away (surely you didn't pay for ill several hundred dollars worth of prime space in your newspaper and at Ihe same lime yon have fallen victim to brainwashing by Ihe old masters of the art. I am referring, of course, lo I ho series of articles tilled "Safety 30,000 Feet Up." This hogwash is all a part of Uie campaign being directed by the Airline Lobby in Washington, D.C. for Uie purpose of brainwashing and propagandizing Ihe Congress and the general public land some unsuspecting country newspaper editors') into believing ihat Ihe only solution lo Ihe growing air traffic problem, is to restrict large segments of the airspace and even some large airports in this country, to Ihe use of the airlines alone. This is HIP same thing as saying Ihat Interstate 55, from Blytheville to Memphis would be restricted to use by trucks and Greyhound Buses, and that all of the automobiles would have to use old Highway 61, then stop at West Memphis and lake, the Greyhound across the bridge to Memphis. Mr. Editor, 1 challenge Mr. Tom Tiede and.the Airline Lobby in Washington to prove their statements and insinuations in this series of articles. They have not only avoided the truth but they have very skillfully used the old journalistic tricks of the trade by prefacing the quotes in such a way that the writer cannot be held responsible for the untruths. Three good examples of lilis appear in the very first paragraph of todays article. (Second of the series) In the first place, there is no airliner in the world today that flies the final approach lo an airport at 200 knots. This is far loo fast. Second, it is against FAA Regulations to operate any aircraft in an airport traffic area at speeds above 180 knots. Third, if (his pilot passed a Cessna on final approach Ihe airline pilot was probably in violation again because usually, the number one aircraft on linal approach has first clearance lo land. The article is filled wild misinformation all purporting to ishow that the General Aviation pilot is responsible for all of the problems of the aircraft industry today. !vlr. Editor this is all a part of a "sour grapes" campaign being waged by the Airline Transport Association. Airlines n* longer enjoy Ihe unique position of being the ultimate, ultimate sophisticates in air travel. This position has been taken over by the sleek jets and corporate aircraft being used by business and industry and by the charter and Air Taxi Services. In their search for growth and profil, (he airlines are falling in the same pit Ihat the railroads did, by handling their customers as if Ihey were so many cattle to be herded about. (1 still maintain that il was Ihe old grouchy passenger train conductor of World War 11 thai ruined Ihe railroads as a mover of people.) Business and industrial people now have discovered that t!ie company airplane flown by highly qualified professional pilots is almost a necessity in the fast moving business world of today. These corporate airplanes are of the latest type, equipped with the most complicated electronic equipment and flown by the most experienced pilots who, in almost every case, are highly qualified. There art 1 now approximately GOOD air- pcirls in ihc Uiiitcd Stales available to these corporate aircraft making il really convenient for the busy executive lo travel groat distances in one day on company business and be back in Ihe home office at the end of the day. General Aviation, which your article is so quick lo condemn, is a much larger part of the national transportation system than most people know about. In 1966 General Aviation flew 21,023,000 hours. Business flying accounted for 34 per cent of this, pleasure flying 24 per cent, commercial 16 per cent, and instruction 26 per cent. There were only 1.069 fatalities in General Aviation Aircraft. In fact there were more people killed ip bathtubs and on bicycles in 1%6 tiian there were in so called light airplanes. Operation of 98 per cent of all U.S. airplanes by 96 per cent of the pilots, io 100 per cent of the air service points; and flying 79 per cent of all civil aviation hours, covering 71 per cent of the airplane miles, carrying more than 50 per cent of the total people, we fed that we are a significant part of the national transportation system whose needs should be considered in any discussion of air space restrictions. Mr. Editor we are sending you several articles on this subject written by members of the industry showing Ihe General Aviation side of ihc story. We invite you to research Ihe subject in any manner you see fit and would like to see something in your paper about the conclusions you will surely reach. Yours truly, Ssm 0. Haynes Municipal Airport Blythevillt There's No Time Like the Present DEAR ABBY: My Husband passed away about four months ago and left me wilh two children, both in high school. His best friend (a bachelor) consoled me in my grief. I really don'l know what I would have done without him. We lost our heads and now I am pregnant. I was told after my last child was born that I couldn't have any more, so I can't imagine how this happened. Anyway, this friend says he loves me, but lie doesn't think it would look good if we got married so soon after my husband's death. If I wait a full year, that will take me into next NOVEMBER, and the baby is due in SEPTEMBER so what should I do! Please don't give me a moral lecture. 1 KNOW how wrong this whole thing was, but it's too late now. Help me! WIDOW IN TROUBLE DEAIl WIDOW: 1! this (rtand intends to marry you, the sooner, the better. It won't look "good" no matter what you ilo, bat the longer you wait, the worse it will look. DEAR ABBY: I have * very dear friend who lives in a dislant city. We've been close friends since our school days together. Recently she wrote saying she would love to visit me. I would love to have her, but, Abby, 1 saw her briefly about four months ago and she had her five-year-old son along who was a holy terror. Either she cannot — or will not — control him. Worse yet, she won't let anyone else correct him. If I tell her that she is welcome but to please leave her son at home, I'm afraid .it would end our friendship. On the other hand, I just cannot see myself putting up with that child. What would be the best way to handle this! PERPLEXED DEAR PERPLEXED: I'm afraid you will have to put this friendship on ice until the five-year-old terror either out grows his obnoxiousness or his mother can leave him home. DEAR ABBY: I am a respectable widow with many friends, married and single. 75 Year* Ago —In Coach Harold Stockton's Junior High Papooses brought home the first district championship trophy to Blytheville in 20 years Saturday when .they defeated Jonesboro 38-25 in the District 3A finals at Jonesboro. Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Pollard are in Hot Springs to spend a week's vacation. • Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Halsell and daughter Dianne spsnt the weekend in New Albany and Tupelo, Miss. Terry An Evans- and Mary Alexander will b« in Memphis tomorrow where they will appear on Storyland at 11 a.m. on WMCT. A. S. Harrison and Max Harrison are spending several days in Little Rock on business. Being alone, I try to lead a busy, well - balanced life to break the monotony of being only with women, women, women. Ocassionally I have a lovely dinner party and invite my married friends. They always seem eager to accept and I am told I am a gracious hostess. These people also entertain at evening parties which would be such a treat to me. But I am not invited. Instead I am invited to their afternoon luncheons with women only as a way of reciprocating. Please print this. Perhaps these wives will recognize themselves and do something about it.

TV Notebook by joan crosby Crosby NEW YORK - (NEA) - Sol Hurok, possibly the only man in the United' States who has truly earned the name IMPRESARIO, began the interview with a question of his own. "What are they watching on TV these days? Blood?" HE shook liis head and said, "We will have to work very hard lo get a public." He is probably right and that's sad. Because the tiling he wants the public to see is S. Hurok Presents — Part II to be telecast over CBS-TV on March 5. Taped in New York and Toronto, this !)0 - minute show (9:30-11 EST) stars Arthur Rubinstein, David Oistrakh and the Bolshoi Ballet, and you can't get much better than that. Hurok, at 80 happy, successful and wealthy, does not need more work. But he would be quite pleased if CBS decided to present him presenting great concert artists on at least an annual basis. He also feels if the American public, which has proved over and over it responds to the caliber of entertainment he presents, is given a chance, his kind of bloodless show can find an audience. And lie lias a parable which offers proof, which be is happy to give to the networks. "In 1933 1 brought the Ballet Russe over from Europe. We opened in New York at the St. James theater in December and for the most of the season we had more people on the stage than we did in the audience. I lost $!)0,QQO on the season, hut I didn't stop because it was an artistic success. "I continued bringing ballet over and the pcrsistance won an audience. Today we have a huge ballet audience and 1 feel I was responsible for it. Then, in 194!), I brought the Sadler's Wells ballet over from London and they performed full-length ballets. Even in my office, people said the American public wouldn't accept full-length, ballets. Now when they come over — they are the Royal Ballet now — we sell out all their performances. "This is a brief history of how ballet got slartcd. I lost my hat in the beginning, but now there is a great appreciation. I apply this recipe t« every great movement. In spite •f networks feeling they havt to protect the stockholders, In public good entertainment, it expect that, spite of saying 'ratings have to will be accepted. Give them "I'm not condemning the net- build,' in spite of sponsors and blood and they will expect works or demanding time for advertising agencies, I believe blood. Give them only prize culture. I just say we are not that if the networks give the fights and wrestling, and they'll doing enough or doing justice The Doctor Says - by wayne g. brandstadt, m.d. - It is always a puzzle to tell whether a child with respiratory symptoms has a cold or an allergy. Dr. M. B. Marks at the University of Miami has made a study of the signs peculiar to respiratory allergies in children. One, which he calls the allergic shiner, develops after about a year of allergic rhinitis. Dark circles suddenly appear under the eyes without any apparent cause. They are, however, due to swelling ot the nasal mucous membranec interfering with the normal venous BERinrs WORLD II drainage from the eyelids. Although in most cases the cause of the so - called geographic tongue is unknown, Dr. Marks has found that it is often present in children with a nasal allergy. It disappears as the child grows older. Along with the motlied appearance of the tongue, the adenoids of these children may become enlarged. In such cases surgical removal of the adenoids may increase rather than relieve the problem, but treatment of the allergy will reduce the adenoids to their normal size. Brandstadt Another sign, which Dr. Marks calls the allergic salute, is a pressing upward of t h s nose with the heel of tbe hand to relieve itching and make breathing easier. If your child has a nasal allergy, it is important to recognize it for what it is and have your doctor prescribe appropriate treatment. Cold capsules and other household remedies won't help. Q - My daughter, 9, may go for a week without a bowel movement. Laxatives don't seem to help. What should I give her? A - The most likely causa of this condition is megacolpn or an abnormally large colon. If an obstruction in the colon ex- sists, it should be corrected before any other treatment i s tried. Otherwise the condition may be due to faulty nerve supply to the colon. When your daughter has gone 72 hours without a bowel movement, yon should give her an enema of eight ounces of plain warm water and have her hold it for five minutes before passing it. Some persons with megacolon 8re benefited by taking protig- min, a prescription drug. Q • I read- that a baby's mouth should be left alone w.-.ile bathing him. Why? A - In bathing your baby, you should wash his face gently, using care not to get "soap or bath water in his mouth. H e won't be able to tell you how much he appreciates this but try to imagine yourself in his place. Please send your questions and comments to Wayne G. Brandstadt, M. D., in c a r « of this paper. While Dr. Brand- itadt cannot answer ndividual letters, he w i 11 answer letters of general interest in future col- to the youth of America. Wa damn the youth but I don't blame them for their taste. They haven't seen anything else. They don't know anything else. Culture should be brought to the schools and the seeds planted before baseball, football, a car, gin in the pocket and a girl on the arm all take over, "Once in awhile you even see a good movie, but mostly they are all shooting and killing. Mf I had nothing else to do and no knowledge of anything else and I saw movies all the time, I'd be in a mental institution." If you agree with Hurok, there's respite to be found in his three B's — Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 played by Rub- i.nstein, Bach's Violin Concerto No. 1 played by Oistrakh, and the Bolshoi, in a segment from Act. II of Giselle. There's even a building on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 55th Street that bears a sticker exhorting people to watch S. Hurok Presents — Part II. Mr. Hurok,. who believes in the direct approach pasted it on personally. Blytheville (Ark.)
