Page Two Editorial OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, April 24, 1965 Saturday Notebook The chaos of home and the confusion of the office were welcomed by us after having spent a good part of last week in the nation's capital. Washington in April is a riot of color. The cherry blossoms were a week late for the annual festival because of the cold weather but did come out in time for Easter. Those around the tidal basin are all we heard they were. The reason we were in the capital was to attend a newspaper convention. It was held at the capital's newest convention hotel, the Washington Hilton. Ben Park, who runs the Buildex plant here, told us to look the place over closely and report to him about it because it is built of the lightweight aggregate he sells. We checked the hotel out closely. In fact we got lost in it three times the first day. It was then that we realized what the cab driver meant when he referred to the hotel as the "new pentagon." Later we found out it is run with the same confusion. We were greeted with a smile then placed in the wrong room. A friend told us later when she checked out the hotel had no record that she had ever been there. Somehow, though, this confused situation goes well with Washington and seems to be accepted as a way of life there. A resident of the place told us as he pointed to a small park that "yesterday that garden had tulips in it, today pansies. Guess somebody got confused." After a few days we realized the wisdom of those early-day Americans who planned the capital. Here in the last half of the 20th Century it seems appropriate the streets in Washington go in circles. Currently the principal topic of conversation is the new Rayburn building, built to house part of the offices of members of the House of Representatives. Nobody seems to know how much it will ultimately cost even though it is now about finished. What seems to gall most people is its appearance. We found it indescribable. One speaker at the convention said that "if the new Rayburn building offends your sensibilities, relax. Anything that ugly is sure to sink into oblivion within a few years." One day while we were there 10,000 college students paraded in front of the White House, protesting U. S. participation in the war in Viet Nam. At the same time, but across the street, George Lincoln Rockwell and his American Nazi Party followers also were staging a protest march. The police were busy keeping the two groups separated. Rather than trying to break up the protests, the official line seemed to be let 'em march and wear out their shoes. All the time the marchers we re outside, the President was relaxing in Texas. The demonstrations seem to be accepted as just another of those things you have to put up with. As a member of the official White House family put it, "just another bunch of kooks." It is easy to see where a lot of the taxpayer's money goes after taking only a brief tour of some of the Washington offices. There seems to be little regard for the dollar and there is an insensibility to waste. Maybe that is why we heard the quarter referred to as "a Washington nickel." Impressive Square VENICE—Maybe the Red Square in Moscow is more impressive in some ways, but I'll take St. Mark's Square, right here. I'd estimate it at fully four football gridirons in size. It is paved with slabs of granite and marble, pigeon droppings, cigarette butts, chew, ing gum wrappers, the residue of spilled ice cream cones, and ticket stubs. Three sides of the Square are completely enclosed with four.strory, arcaded buildings with This And Thai facades of marble carved in intricate fashion. They differ just enough in detail on each side to be interesting but not enough to prevent them from being a symmetrical whole. Back of the ground floor pillars along the arcades are dozens of small shops where an Incredible collection of tourist trash is on sale. Leading back from the arcades at intervals are passageways opening onto narrow, twisting streets where it is ridiculously easy for a stranger to get lost. The fourth side ot the Square is occupied by St. Mark's Cathedral, probably the most beautiful Byzantine structure still standing. Since it was started in the 9th century, all manner of additions have been made. Today it displays marbles in every conceivable color, outstanding mosaics with gold backgrounds, ogee arches, Gothis tabernacles, five Oriental domes, and statues of various saints. On a ledge above the door stand the four celebrated golden horses of Venice which the years have turned mostly green. On the corner to the left of the Cathedral is the blue and white square clock tower on top of which two cast-iron Vulcans with heavy sledges count the hours on the bronze bell between them in a way to make the whole Square reverberate. To the right one can see only a small section of the Doges' Palace with its elaborate stone, work below and it s broad story of pink brick above. Most of it is shut off from sight by the SOO.foot square shaft of brick which is the Campanile, or bell tower. I wish I had been standing at the far end of the Square on the afternoon of July 14, 1907. It was then that the old Camponile suddenly collapsed. It must have made quite a crash. In any event, no one today minds, since the new Campanile is a replica of the old. To me, though, the outstanding feature of St. Mark's Square is none of the attractions I have mentioned briefly. It is Florian's. Florian's is where the Venetians who could afford it have been coming for their coffee and pastries for a century or more. On rainy days Florian's is a cheerless place comprising a series of small dining and drinking rooms with mid-19th century furnishings set back of the arcade. On sunny days one sinks into one of the 1,000 chairs around one.fourth as many tables lined over the pavement out in front. As a traditionalist, it was comforting to me to find that Florian's still appears to be the place to go. Why this should be, I dont know. Its espresso, chocolate ice cream, and pastries are no better than those served by its two competitors across the Square. One of the rivals has a five.piece orchestra which plays decorous music from a stand set in the center of its tables. The other has only four musicians, but they wear scarlet jackets. However, that doesn't persuade me. I can sit at one of Florian's tables, as I have been doing at long intervals for some time, waiting for the two Vulcans to toll another hour, and meanwhile listening to the music from across the way which is just faint enough to be pleasant. Poor Circulation Dear Dr. Molner: I have cold hands at the slightest bit of chilly weather. Could this be due to poor circulation?—A.B.C. To Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER It could be — but might not be. There are one or two blood ailments (not very common) which cause the blood to thicken at the slightest cooling. This Is, in a way, poor circulation, because the thickening of the blood Interferes. But the point is that poor circulation, in the ordinary sense, is not the only cause of such a complaint. Dear Dr. Molner: Is dioctyl sodium sulfosuccin. ate cafe to use for relief of constipation?—U L. Yes. it is one of the best medications available, and used in a dozen or more preparations. Tech. nically it acts by attracting moisture. Dear Dr. Molner: Please explain flbrosls of the lungs. Is it curable?—MRS. A.M.C. It means formation of scar tissue in the lungs. This occurs to a moderate degree from infec. tlons such as tuberculosis, pneumonia, hlstoplas. mosis, etc., or inltation (as in silicosis) from particles breathed into the lungsl In other cases, where it may be more ex. tensive and involve an entire lung, it may not be possible to find any cause. Steroids (hormones of the cortisone family) have been used in such cases, but there is no effective means of un. doing the damage that has occurred.
