fhft 0WAWA HERALD Tuwday, April 14, 1089 laff-A-Day Confusing Facts Reading excerpts from Sen. Stuart Symington's •peech In Topeka over the weekend we couldn't help but remember an old favorite of ours. Senator Claghorn, the mythical character on fred Allen's show of years back. Like Claghorn, th« Missouri senator covered A variety of subjects, all critically. But In parti- tultt, Symington took in after the No. I Republican target, Secretary of Agriculture Ben•on. Said the Missouri Democrat, "They have spent |30 billion of our money on a farm program that just doesn't work." By "they," he meant the Republicans. Then he held up the shining plans of the Democrats: a fair price for the farmer for his products, a means of competing with the closely organized segments of our economy, farm production within realistic needs, and doing something about our mountains of surplus. He gave no specific plan for realization of these ideals. Just for the record, il must be remembered the farm support program got its start under the Democrats, Certainly it has worsened under the Republican administration which has, most of the time, had to deal with a Democratic Con- fress. These facts Symington slipped over with the alacrity which makes him a good politician, a man prominently mentioned for the presidency til 1940. That old Claghorn saying keeps ringing in our ears. You remember it: "Now look, son, don't confuse me with the facts." This And That There Is • new vaccine for small children which combines protection against polio, diph- thelra, whooping cough, and tetanus. It won't be fully popular with its users, though, until It comes in choice of chocolate or strawberry. The radio Huff of the year was made by announcer who urged his listeners to "stay tuned to Station XXXX for a complete and apprehensive news summary." Two of the contestants for the title of Beauty Queen at Kansas State University this •pring have the fascinating names of Linda Ate and Cherto La Framboise. La Framboise is French for the raspberry. So the answer to the question which inevitably ' comes to mind is La Framboise was what Ate. JPB Linda The following essay was written by a third grade girl and published originally in the Manhattan Mercury: "Once long ago there was a very old bunny. He lived in a neat and tidy town. Grandfather bunny had IB granddaughters. They were all girls. One day he had one more granddaughter. He was a Jack rabbit."

If this heady rate can only be maintained, by sometime late in 1978 the cost of living will be back to what it was in 1949.

Kb* rwturw birtlnfc tn».>W.rU rlf*M n***"Mr. Merrill isn't Seeing anyone this morning. He broke his glasses." Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER '•Dear l)r. Molncr: I was hospitalized for severe internal bleeding that necessitated 3(1 blood transfusions. An, exploratory operation, X- rays and other tests disclosed no tumors or ulcers. Doctors ascribed the b'.eeding to aspirin. I had been taking one medicine for a severe cold which lasted a month, and another one containing aspirin for sinus relief. "Plen.se describe under what conditions and how aspirin is likely to cause bleeding. Are there many cases like mine?—J.E.C." Your letter, sir, Is important in that it Jolts us into being aware of a fact that is not generally realized, Asprin can produce bleeding. How? sometimes it effects the blood (technically, by depressing the platelets) so that it doesn't clot as readily. Sometimes it causes bleeding in the stomach from irritation or ulceration. *>r. Molner Before we go any farther, aspirin is a valuable drug. 1 approve of it heartily. But, as I have repeatedly written in this column, a drug powerful enough to be useful is powerful enough to be treated with care and respect, This is true of aspirin. It is a truly Important drug! But it's a drug. You ask if there are "many cases" like yours. To which I will reply as precisely as I can: Such cases ore known. Considering the Ions of aspirin consumed, we might say that these drastic reactions are not too common. The person must have a particular sensitivity to the drug. In some, it causes rashes, ringing in the ears, hives — always, I repent, in susceptible, or aspirin - sensitive, people. What can happen and what will happen are two different things. It depends on the individual as well as on the drug. At the same time, aspirin (and this we know from years of experience) is one of the most dependable and one of the safest drugs ever discovered. That is why it lias been made so widely sold. But because of the occasional cases — like yours, or less severe — some authorities protest that it should not be so readily available. As for me, I'm not taking any position on this. I'm just trying to make people aware of the facts. Aspirin is useful (I should say important) in treating arthritis, rheumatic fever, the common cold, headaches and many other ailments. Indeed, most of the patent remedies for colds, headaches and pains contain aspirin in one form or another. Hence any susceptible individual should know what is in the pills he or she takes — and aspirin is often mentioned by its more proper name of salicylages, or acelyl salicylic acide. By no means am I condemning aspirin. Quite the reverse. J.E.C. is one in thousands who is sensitive; one in millions who is drastically sensitive. But let us not blink at the fact that sometimes the unusual does occur. "Dear Dr. Molncr: Last spring I developed a small rupture on one side, and I think I will have to have something done, as it hurts very annoy- Sngly. I wear a truss most of the time. Is an operation most always successful? Is there an injection method that is equally satisfactory?— E.S." If 1 had a rupture that hurt (or maybe if 1 had one that didn't, depending on the size) 1 would have it corrected by surgery right off. I've heard lots about the so-called "injection cure." And if it were my rupture, 1 wouldn't even consider the injection method. 13—sport* tiU 13-Weather CiOO 4—News 9- -Cisco K)« 13—Newi 4— Sports R—Sporta lilt 4—New* 13-Ntwi O20 5— W«»'Jier ilM 5—Personality • ISO 4—Dragnet B—Let's Oee I)—Susnrfoot 13—Bturi In Aot'n 1:00 4—Steve Canyon J—Miss Brooks J3-Weddln», Jap. 1:30 4—Jim Rodger* B—Ten the Truth U—Wyatt Earp 0:00 4—Q.

That's how Gifford V. Leece, President of Gardner -Denver, Quincy, III., maker of tools and machinery, reacts to all the taik today about whether Americans are being priced out of world markets. Operating costs have been rising in the United Slates faster than in other lands. Many American firms have been able in the past to surmount this because of tech But In the last few years Europe and Japan particularly have been catching up fast both in technique and designs. Americans feel they haven't the advantage they once had — and the rising costs here are beginning to hurt. American exports have been fall Ing off. Now many American firms are recouping because of increasing sales of their foreign plants. The start of the Common Market in Europe has given some American manufacturers still more to worry about.

When the French comedy maker came to get an Oscar for "My Uncle" as the best foreign laa guage film, 1 arranged the meeting.

It is not unusual that stress, embarrassment or surprise may make the stammering crop up. Yes, in most metropolitan areas (including yours) there are clinics for cases like his.

The four plans that his firm uses overseas are: 1. A wholly owned plant in Rio De Janeiro, where factory and fools are its own and its product is made for distribution in Brazil, and maybe later in other countries. It was built to offset local competition that was cutting Into the firm's market. 2. A leased plant in South Africa was built to Gardner - Denver specifications and the company installed its own tools. It makes and distributes Its own products. It moved, in to protect its existing markets in Africa. 3. in Belgium the 1 firm contracted with a local company that already had factories and tools to make the American items to its specifications and deliver them to warehouses. Its own sales force handles them. me I dropped the gun and nearly roke a toe." Frankie has sold more than 30 million records in the last dozen ears. Why, since his voice brings lown money in a golden shower, vaste it on straight acting? "The fear of trying something lew is often what defeats peo- ile," said Laine. "There is nn itanding still in this business. The lay you aren't willing to take a tep forward is the day you've already started going backward." Frankie, the son of a Chicago barber, isn't frightened by the possibility of failure. It took him 16 years to reach the top as a singer. During that period he slept it times on park benches, worked as an office boy, dancing teacher, shipping clerk, auto salesman and nachinist. The first lesson I had to learn ,vas to be myself," he recalled. 'I did what everybody else was doing. And I was a dud. "In 1936 I decided I'd quit mitating others." It took another decade before lis big-voice style caught on. Five times he quit in disgust. Five times he came back and tried again. "The last time, I quit a $150 a-week factory job, because I clicked with a recording. His first royalty check was for $36,000. "I often wonder what would have happened to me if I hadn't been willing to make that one last try," he said. "Rul il doesn't worry me. I can lie down 20 minutes before going on thfi air and take a nap. My wife, Nan, and I both have faith. We believe there's a reason for everything that happens in life." The Laines and their two teenage daughters, Pam and Jan, are ery close. "When you boil it down," said hankie, "the family is the most mportant unity in your life." 4. Gardner-Denver bought a controlling interest in a German company. The Americans furnish the specifications and the techniques and the German firm makes the products. The American sales force takes over from there, Leece says that in no case does his company allow others to sell its goods. The Quincy company is constantly studying opportunities for more expansion abroad. "We intend to hold our markets, whether we make the goods' here or abroad," says Leece. Wednesday: Watch your manners in foreign lands. Retires And Takes His Machine Home FLINT,' Mich. (AP)—Many retiring employes go home with a wrist watch as a token of "well done" after their last day on the job. Edwin W. Niedzielski, who retired after 41 years with Buick, went home with the two-ton lathe ic had used for nearly 30 years. Niedzielski bought the lathe from Buick for $62. The auto firm paid $3,414.79 for it back in 1929.
