thu tJTOAWA HERALD Thursday, April 16, 1959 laff-A-Day The Right Side Two incidents happened at the Ottawa police station Tuesday that made us puzzle about our youngsters of today. , Sitting on a bench in the station were two youths. One was a tall, slim boy with a sweeping ducjstail and bushy sideburns. The other was a abort boy v^lth crude sideburns and a ducktail. .;.• Both wore black, wrinkled, leather jackets with silver studs. Both had unwashed complexions and dirty jeans. Both were top-heavy with hair. if ..•.;, :•-•..., At the same time, a rural grade school — complete with teacher and children — toured the jail. They looked into the cells, watched the radio dispatcher at work and asked questions. Each boy and girl wore clean clothes; the boys had short hair cuts, and the girls wore pretty curls. Each was young, innocent and curious. As the school group filed past the black jacket boys, they represented a striking contrast. The big-city juveniles; the clean-cut American farm boys and girls. One of the boys was on parole from a reform school. They had run out of gas in Ottawa, and were on their way to Hutchinson. Police officers had picked them up to check them out. Seeing the two groups side-by-side, it suddenly occurred to us that we would not like to see one or two of the school boys sitting on the bench. It impressed upon us the necessity for schools, parents, churches and other institutions to keep them on the "touring" side of the cell. Where To Start Speaking at Pittsburg State the other day, Dr. James A. McCain, president of Kansas State, touched on a timely topic. "We can," he said, doubtless cram more undergraduates into Volkswagens and telephone bootlis than the Russians, especially in view of their wider circumferences. The important question is do the Russians cram more knowledge into the heads of their university students?" This statement was given in summary of an address concerning the need for American schools of higher learning to place more emphasis on scholastic achievement and less on athletics and extra-curricular activities. "The American campus," he said, "is seriously threatened by anti-inteUectualism. . . Scholarship is in mortal danger of subjugation by a hypo-thyroid program of student activities." There is little doubt Dr. McCain is qualified to discuss his subject. The colleges themselves, starting at the level of college president can do much to halt this trend. But to be truly successful, they must have help, starting on the grade school level and extending through high school. This And That byiph How unkind to animals can people get? Some heartless soul abandoned two goldfish in a small bowl filled with tired water in a Wichita bus. Sufferers from cancer win immediate sympathy, but why is it that when someone is reported to have lumbago, housemaid's knee, or gout, everyone smiles? Neighbor of ours is not exactly old but he is old enough so all he wants for his birthday is not to be reminded of it. Pennsylvania's Legislature is debating the selection of an official state dog and some day there wi.l be a national dog as well. Any breed would do so long as it is one which would not mistake the national flower for a tree. Why is it (hat when the cost of living advances by one-tenth of one per cent, it plummets, while if it falls to a like extent, it only sags? Labor strives for a shorter and shorter work week, but a clearer picture of its real ambition could be obtained in its honest answer to this question: Were overtime to apply after 24 hours and an unlimited amount of it offered, how long would you work each week? Work on Ottawa's flood control project was recently halted by a flood which at once recalls those earlier day good roads meetings which frequently had to be postponed because of bad roads. When Khrushchev dispatches a message to Eisenhower, it runs to at least 10 single-spaced pages. This strongly suggests that under Communism ghost writers are paid by the word.

S> Wt, Klftf r>«lur«i S/ndfciU, Inc., World rfckti MeerwdT" "Well, you've been acting like a mule latelyl" Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molncr: I S eem to have trouble shaving. On my neck or the lower part of my face I get pimples, sometimes boils. Is this from shaving too close?—V.Y." It could be, in part anyway. The skin of the neck is soft and the hair follicles are easily damaged, : If you have a magnifying mir- [ror, take a cjose look and you Iwill note that the beard shafts ton the neck come out at an jangle, lying more of less flat ! against the skin, rather than tending to come straight out Jos Is the case over most of the [face. That brings up this question: I Which way do you shave, up Dr. Molncr br down? Shaving "with the grain," .so to speak, may not give you as close a shave but it may prevent the razor from cutting close enough to irritate those sensitive follicles - that is, the little hollows from which the individual hairs sprout. How often you shave? If you have a heavy beard you may frequently shave more than once a day, and this vastly Increases the amount of irritation. Generally, we all carry on our skins, or frequently come in contact with, various germs which, while they may not be of the virulent type that makes us ill, still can do some mischief if they find' a small nick or cut or cranny in the .skin. (The skin is waging a constant battle to keep germs out, and it does very well for the most part unless a chink is created somewhere — as by shaving.) That being the case, care in preventing these small nicks or rough places is important. An actual cut, which bleeds, can very well wash out any germs that have tried to enter, after which the beginning of the scab seals the spot. But , the ever-present germs may find entry through some scrape that was too slight to notice. (I think It's worth mentioning, also, that your skin may bo overly-sensitive to one shaving cream and not to another. If you've noticed this trouble with one kind and not with another, that could be the trouble.) But to get back to the nicks and germs: Use of an after-shave lotion may cut down on these small spots of infection, due to the alcohol in the lotion which, of course, is antiseptic. That's still only .second best to avoiding the small nicks. Shaving with the grain, not going over the same piece of hide too many times, and not trying to shave too close, may be your best answer. Whether an electric razor would help is something you'll have to decide on the basis of your own preference and experience. Certainly some men prefer to use that type and shave morning and evening, rather than to use blades and to try for a closer shave once a day. What suits one man may not suit another— which is why some things come in six delicious flavors, and medical care has to be fitted to tho patient, not the patient to the medicine. "Dear Dr. Molner: I was told by a doctor that a yellowish blemish above my eyelid was due to poor metabolizing of cholesterol. Can this be corrected by diet or medicine?—D.S.C." No, sir, I am not familiar with either medicine or diet that will remove a blemish of this type. It is known as an xanthoma, a raised, yellowish mass, either round or of oblong shape, on the inner aspect of the eyelid. It contains fatty substances, much of the material being cholesterol. I do know that these can be removed surgically if they are objectionable from the standpoint of appearance. "Dear Dr. Molner: Is there such a thing as Paget's Disease? If so, do children of victims inherit it?-Mrs. A.B." There are two conditions known by that name, one a bone disease, the other a breast disease. I know of no evidence that either is inherited. L.M.S.: Depth preception is based princpal- ly on the fact that two eyes are at work. Each looks from a slightly different angle. Therefore after loss of one eye you cannot expect depth perception to be regained, except that distant things will look smaller than close ones. Measles can be fatal to young children! For an explanation of the seriousness of this disease, write me in care of Box 158, Dundee, 111., requesting my pamphlet, "Measles, the 'Harmless' Killer," and enclose a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope and 5 c in coin to cover handling. Prayer For Today You shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38.) PRAYER: Come, Holy Spirit, come! Come as the fire and burn! Come as the water and cleanse! Come as the wind and refresh I Convict, convert, and consecrate my heart and will to my great good and to Thy greater glory." In the name of Christ. Amen.

He may be on his way to see how well his European plant is turning out cash registers with arable figures for sale in the Midwest. , And while he's there he'll try his best to act like and think like his native employes and customers. It pays. More and more American firms are building plants abroad or talking about it. Here are some rules of thumb on how to succeed as given by one old hand. Stanley C. Allyn, chairman of National Cash Register, says tha 40 per cent of his firm's sales are overseas — and 65 per cent o these sales were of machines bull abroad, Overseas operations have set new sales records in each o the past 13 years. He employs 22,000 people abroad and only six are Americans. Bui Dayton, Ohio, executives arc con stantly traveling to the overseas plants, and sales offices, visiting 3o countries last year. And the overseas personnel frequently come to Dayton headquarters Personal contact is the key to sue cess, says Allyn, The first rule, however, he says is to go into a country to stay regardless of wars, revolutions or depressions.

A year ago, when the econom; was soft, network executives wer worriedly scrambling for advertis ers. Now trade sources repor that it wiil soon be standing room only for network shows. Cigarette companies are expect ed to invest 100 million dollars in TV — an all-time high for th medium. This year they spent 70 million. Variety, show business journal says only about 30 million dol lars in network time remains un purchased. The automotive indus try is expected to take up mos of this. A year ago the networks hac well over 100 million dollars worth of unpurchased prime viewing time. It's too early to say yet exactly what this prosperity means to th individual viewer in the way o entertainment. But next year appears in gen eral to be a perpetuation of thi year's programming trends. "Pe ter Gunn" appears to be setting a style in half-hour shows of murde accompanied by music. There is a great deal of talk about "specials," which attracte many advertisers this year. Bu a "special" can encompass al most anything of hour length, it's too soon to spot a trend. "Playhouse 90" will be on CBS TV every other week, aiternatin; with a new 90-minute series "Bi ography." That is one encouraging outlook.

French Comic Gives Views On Hollywood HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Jacques Tali's funny French films have been noted for their incisive slants on people and places. Here's his view of Hollywood: "The place seems so unreal Even the shops with their glitter ing facades appear to be only the fronts of movie sets. I am sur prised that they have backs to them. Every day that I leave my hotel, I expect to come back and find that it has been taken down and another set put up in its place." The tall French comic found the people here warm and friendly. He has long been admired in Hollywood as one of the world's great laugh-makers, and the town was delighted that his film "My Uncle" won the Oscar for best foreign language picture. What about reports that he might make a movie here? "I have had talks'about it," he remarked. "But I don't believe it would ever be possible. "I like to shoot slowly. It is not terribly expensive, because I use a small crew. But I do not like to be rushed. If I want to get the right shot of a dog in the street, I will stay there all day until the dog does exactly what I want it to. "They don't understand that here any more. You've got schedules, schedules, schedules. If a director doesn't come in on schedule, he is in trouble." Tati explained that he takes about two and a half months to make a movie, and spends many months in preparation. "My Uncle" took longer, because it was filmed in two languages. He is a one-man production gang, since he writes, directs, produce^ and stars in the films. "It is the only way J can control my own d«stiny," he explained.! visible as the summer season ap proaches. In the New York area it's rare to see an old movie feature that was not visible within the previous six months. Paramount and other West Coast studios have been experimenting with sound tracks on old silent films. But TV sources say they are not enthusiastic about the idea. Thanks to the innovation of tape, TV is beginning to build Us own backlog of material which might be marketed for re-runs. MIRRORS [Beveled and Plain Edge For Any Room in Your Home SUFFBON Glass Co. 418 N. Main Ph. CH 2-2515 Another is to plow back the prof its you make abroad. His firm has paid for the plants it built since the war largely out of profits of overseas operations. To Americans planning to manu facture overseas — whether it's to take advantage of usually lower operating costs or to slide under the barriers of currency restrictions or import quotas — Allyn has other pointers. One is to treat foreign employes as you do those at home. This goes for working conditions, rec reation facilities and benefit pro grams. Wage sales, like the price of raw materials, are, governed by local conditions. Another Is to study the local market conditions and when necessary adapt your product to meet it. Allyn notes that in some cases ideas and product changes originating abroad have been put into use here. If your firm wants to prosper, or even stay alive, in its overseas location and market, there is one prime thing to remember. Always respect the customSi traditions, religions and sensitivities of foreign peoples. What nearly everyone does in Ohio might infuriate the people in Calcutta or Lisbon.
