OTTAWA HERALD "Why Not A Trail For Guerrilla Peacefare? 9 ' Page Two Editorial Wednesday April 21,1965 Personal Survey Since it was referred to as a "vast wasteland" by a high government official, the television industry has been suffering from a depressed image. One might think it would correct this image by doing the obvious, improving the product it sells the American public. But as is so often done in industry in this land, it took the tack of rebuilding the image. One of the efforts along this line reveals itself in a recent opinions poll conducted by Elmo Roper and Associates. It reports: "It is clear from the report that public acceptance of television is now higher than at any time in the five- year period under consideration. The trends suggest that higher public acceptance of television will continue as the young people who have known television during most of their lives enter the adult population." Since the Roper poll was conducted at the request of the Television Information Office and parallels quite closely what that office has been saying, the findings of the poll might be termed suspect. Another poll, known as the Harris Poll which occasionally does work for CBS, was recently completed. Here is what it reports: "There is every sign of growing disenchantment with television on the part of the affluent, better-educated part of the adult American public. TV appears to be losing its audience among adults who have been to college, whose incomes are $10,000 or over and among suburban residents. It is also less attractive than it once was to people in the 21-34 age group." It depends on which poll you prefer. Those who care to can conduct their own surveys, starting with the simple question, "seen any good programs on TV lately?" No Shame FLORENCE —So if I can hold out for another day, I'll leave Firenze without having gone to eith. er the Ufflzl or Pitti Palace art galleries. I've be. come such a hardened, old Philistine, I feel no sense of shame. I'm sure when I get home some of my art loving friends will chide me for any omission. They will say, "You mean you were in Florence for three whole days and didn't look at those priceless paint, ings by Botticelli, Fra Angelico, Pollaiuolo, For. tinarl, Lorenzo Monaco—" There they will pause for a deep breath and go on: "And Filippo Lippi, Ghirlandaio, Vivarini, This And That By jph Giotto, Gaddi, Glottino, and Daddi?" When they stop, I'll look them straight in'the eye and reply, "If ,1 didn't see even such a picture as "My Fair Lady" a second time, why should I do it for any others?" As for the Pitti, it is across the Ponte Vecchio on the other side of the Arno. It is a little too far to walk but not far enough to warrant calling a taxi. As for the Uffizi, I know from past experience it is built in the shape of a very long U. Like a turnpike, there is no turning back or escaping until one reaches the exit at the other end. It contains XLU rooms, all of them large enough in which to hang at least 50 paintings. The Uffizi is not conveniently arranged like the Louvre in Paris. There one can pop in, see the Winged Victory and the Mona Lisa, and be back out in the spring sunshine in three minutes. Or he can go in one door and stay out of the rain for two blocks before he comes to another convenient exit. This morning, though, I did find great solace in the Uffizi. I sat at a cafe table for an hour. en. joying an espresso. Across the Piazza della Signoria I could see both the entrance and exit of the gallery. It was most restful to watch a file of people rushing to the doorway, bright-eyed and bushy, tailed. From the other doorway emerged one af. ter another with tails dragging, eyes glazed and a look of exhaustion on their faces. But I did do my duty toward art. Refreshed by my espresso and gallery.goers watching, I strolled down the street to the Duomo de Santa Maria del Fiore, as the Cathedral here is called, with its attendant but separate circular Baptistery and shaftlike Campanile. They are fancifully elaborate structures which would look even better as an Illustration for a book of fairy stories than on a picture postcard. They are built basically ol whit* marble with stripes of green marble everywhere. There are even bits of pink marble, and statues and mosaics of a variety of saints set in the walls. A red domed roof tops the scene. Whenever I look at the Duomo, I get to thinking that if all the marble were scrubbed back to pristine freshness, and if 769 lighted candles to denote its years were fixed to its dome, it would make a perfect birthday cake. My conscience drove me to walk through the Cathedral as well as to circle the outside In ad. miration. I can only report that the Gothic vault has a rather barren look. It represents an overpowering lot of enclosed space. Chemicals Dear Dr. Molner: A year ago I began using saccharin instead of sugar. I like a lot of coffee, so this made quite a difference in calories and helped me stabilize my weight at a normal figure. A pharmacist told me that saccharin had pro. duced cancer in laboratory animals and that I should avoid it. Then I asked another pharmacist who said this was absolutely untrue as saccharin was coal tar, and if it produced cancer, diabetics would acquire cancer from its use. To ease my mind I decided to ask you. —MRS. W. B. Saccharin isnt coal tar — but chemically it is a derivative, just as some other products are; Perfume, dyes, many drugs, etc. Some coal tar derivatives, when applied constantly or in tremendous concentrations, can To Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER cause cancer, but I have never heard that sacchar. in has done this nor perfume nor many other products derived from the same source. True, a certain irritating chemical has been used in laboratories because, when painted on a a small animal's skin in heavy concentration, it causes cancer if the animal has been bred to be sensitive to such an irritant. But that chemical isn't saccharin. Or many other things. Over the years saccharin has been used by people with diabetes, not to mention all the others who have, used it just to cut down on calories. U any danger were involved we would have seen it by now. Dear Dr. Molner: My husband had a heart attack a year ago. He is progressing well. Our doctor tells us it is all right for him to eat eggs, yet so many people say they are not good for him as they build cholesterol. Please explain.—PUZZLED Dont ask me to explain why people go around saying eggs aren't good for you. If your husband is eating 40 eggs a day, better tell him to slow down. That's too many eggs. But if you mean he is eating one or two a day, that is entirely reasonable. Of course egg yolk contains cholesterol, some cholesterol is necessary in the body. The main point is whether the cholesterol level gets too high. So depend on your doctor's advice and don't be alarmed at what is told to you by people who are demonstrating the adage that " a little knowledge is a dangerous thing." Dear Dr. Molner: Please explain lipomas. What causes them? Could it be high cholesterol? Is surgical removal always necessary? If not, why? Do lipomas sometimes dissolve or regress of their own accord? If so, why?—MRS. E. You ask more "whys" than I can answer. Li- pomas are fatty tumor — growth of fatty tissue into lumps. We dont know why. We have no rea. son to think that cholesterol has anything to do with them. They do not regress as a rule but may become smaller if there is a great weight loss. There is no way of removing them except by surgery, but since lipomas are not cancerous, the best rule is just to leave them alone unless they become so large as to be troublesome, or are unsightly, or are so located as to be uncomfortable. Auld Lang Syne 25 Yean Ago Robert Lister, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Lister of near Le Loup, was hired by the county commissioners as assistant county engineer to take the place of Glenn Enslow who resigned. 50 Yean Ago Miss Mary Nelson and Miss Kathryn Cook went to Baldwin to attend the Music Festival.

Prayer For Today Jesus Christ gave ample proof that he was alive. (Acts 1:3 NEB) PRAYER: O God, thanks be to Thee for raising from the dead Thy crucified Son. We rejoice in the hope given to us in the person of our living Savior. Forgive our sins and unworthiness. By Thy mercy save us that we may be numbered among His followers. In His name we ask. Amen.
