1 B, I F \\ HERALD April ao, 1959 Editorials Actions Louder A Kansas City truck driver the other day was Wdtmded by a shotgun blast as he was sitting In the liviag room of his home. His wife and daughter were a few feet away. He has linked this Incident with his recent differences with the Kansas City Teamsten Union. Some months back he requested a financial report from the union, a report which is authorized by law. Since that time he has been threatened, shot and ha* worked only eight days in three months, Keeping this in mind, read this statement. "Millioni of Americans — among them many thousands of our Teamster members — have fought and died to protect one of our most cherished rights — freedom of association. Such rights as freedom of assembly and freedom of speech are essential to the very concept of the freedom of man. When these rights are abused or denied, it is cause for grave alarm." These are (he words of James R. Hoffa, president of the Teamsters. We agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Hoffa. However, to him . . .and to many in the union movement. . . freedom of what he calls association is a one-way avenue. Once you oro in, you're stuck. Once you're in, your freedom of speech disappears. If a man has the right to join a union under what Hoffa calls freedom of association, doesn't he also have the right to dis-associnte? The actions of Hoffa and his unions speak much louder than his high-sounding words. To The Outskirts A bank in nearby Lawrence the other day announced it had purchased a tract of land weJl out from the downtown area in which it is, now located. By 1901 it hopes to occupy a new building to be constructed on this land. Naturally the new bank will have drive-in facilities. And a sizeable parking Jot. In connection with the planned move, an official of the bank made the statement that "Frankly we hate to leave this fine location in the heart of the downtown section of the city. However, we have outgrown these facilities and drive-in banking and parking are growing factors." The drive-in trend along with the mounting need for parking, resulting from an America on wheels, is being felt everywhere. It Is not restricted only to banks, but is being felt by department stores, drug stores, hard- wares and groceries. The trend to the outskirts is being felt in Ottawa. Those businesses in the downtown area, if they are to combat or reverse this trend, must take the lead in providing adequate parking for potential customers. This And That byioh Japanese courts have held the constitution the United States forced that country to adopt makes it unconstitutional for American forces to be stationed in Japan. Apparently the next time the United States writes a constitution for someone else, it should employ a lawyer. Constitutions, however, are not to be taken too seriously, particularly by supreme courts. Our own, for instance, has ruled the "double jeopardy" clause in the Bill of Rights doesn't mean what it says. It has permitted a stale court to try a man for the same crime of which he had been previously acquitted in a federal court. We searched the dictionary for information as to the meaning of "pentomic" divisions into which the Army is being reorganized. We found nothing listed between "penthouse" and "pen- tosan," which means yielding pentoses on hydrolysis. Our eyes wandered to "pentavalent." The definition is "quinquevalent." We turned to "quinquevalent." "Pentavalent," it said. How the dictionarians love their little jokes. But we still don't know what pentomic is. Members of women's bridge clubs spend most of their time comparing the shortcomings of their husbands, and it probably is a healthy thing. After finding what 11 others have to put up with, the 12th may decide she is not eo badly off after all. Detectives in a neighboring city have solved a crime perpetrated there the 29th of 1 a s t month. Not surprisingly they found a colored Easter yegg involved. These small foreign cars won't really have caught on until somebody bothers to steal one. Brilliant bonehead, they call Khrushchev, but that's letting him off too lightly. He also is a bulbous, bibulous, blusterous, besmirching, beastful one. Prayer For Today Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord. (Psalm 4:5.) PRAYER: Dear Father, we pray Thee to look after us and our possessions according to Thy will. Help us to understand Thy ways. Teach us to put more trust and faith in Thee. Reveal to us this day's p'an for our life. In the name of Jesus, who taught us to pray, "Our Father who art in heaven. .. Amen. laff-A-Day . J69, King Features Syndicate, Inc., World rights me "We should have long chats like this more often—" Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molncr: Is it wise to give a nine- month-old baby flu shots?—Mrs. T.S." I don't sec any reason for doing so. At that tender ago, Iho iittic ones have enough shots to contend with — the very necessary ones to protect against diphtheria, whooping cough, polio, etx. Likewise, since young babies stay at home do not have as much exposure to flu. 1 say flu shots ;are better used for older poo- I pic. This is my opinion now, jand others might disagree with ime because flu is most dangerous to persons at the extremes of age — the very young and the very old. I prefer flu prevention for the extremely (young by avoiding exposure. Dr. Molncr "Dear Dr. Molncr: Could you toll me something about histamine headaches, and use of histamine for the pain?—B.S." Hlstnmlnc Headache is set off by a sudden release of histamine in the system, and in that sense is related to allergy to some extent, although it is not identical. Histamine causes dilation of the blood vessels, and in this kind of headache there is a characteristic pattern: Severe pain, usually one-sided and behind the eye; the eyeball is congested, and tears flow profusely. Treatment (and here again you will note a general resemblance to allergy treatment) is in giving very small injections of histamine, until the system adjusts. This is a tedious process, but is usually quite effective. "Dear Dr. Molner: My face has been pockmarked from childhood. Could a child of mine inherit this?-J.H.B." No. sir. Positively not. The pock marks are the result of some skin trouble that happened to you, not a result of something Inherent in you and your ancestors. "Dear Dr. Molncr: What about the dreaded disease, arteriosclerosis? I understand there has been very little research on this disease.—Mrs. M.T." I think you've been misinformed. There has been a great deal of research on it, and there still is a lot, more than ever, these days. It's a thickening — or "hardening" — of the arteries, and it does cause trouble sometimes, to be sure. But calling it a "dreaded" disease makes it sound like cholera or something. All of us over 40 (and probably younger) have a trace of it, at least. For practical purposes, I think we are wisest to view it as just one phase of growing older; doubtless in time we will learn how to retard it. At present we know that it bothers some people very much, and causes virtually no detectable trouble for others. We do not know why, any more than we know why some people live to 100 and others don't. "Dear Dr. Molner: My husband was in the army. When he returned he had a tatoo on each arm. Every so often parts of them swell up -- only the tattoo itself. What causes this? Is it serious? In general arc tattoos harmful?—E.Y." This is probably irritation from the dye. Most tattoos involve a potential danger — infection — since they are usually applied under non-sanitary conditions. If a dangerous germ is lurking around, or is on the skin but unable to get in, the tattoo is a abvious opening for the door. As to tattooing, of itself, being dangerous, my answer would be no, since it is sometimes applied for identification or as an indication that a person is highly sensitive to some drug or serum. In such cases the tattoo is applied carefully and under completely sanitary conditions.

KANE . WASHINGTON (AP) - The Cuban people are more interested in getting back to work than having free elections right away, says Fidel Castro. But the bearded revolutionary leader adds he wants free elections in Cuba as soon as possible. He's not sure when that might be. Real democracy is not possible where people are hungry, Castro said in a television interview Sunday night. He had another chance to expound his views today, in a luncheon appearance before the National Press Club. Castro nnd Vice President Richard M. Nixon talked for two hours and 20 minutes at the Capitol Sunday night in a conference originally scheduled for 15 minutes. Neither disclosed what they talked about, but Castro described the meeting as very friendly. "This is a revolution," he told his television audience, "We have to attain many problems, We are working. As many more people help us, the more we will be understood and the faster we can dissolve our problems and the faster will be the election, because we are most interested in them. "In the past the politician went through the country buying votes, offering money to those who werej unemployed, offering a bed in the hospital, offering a place in the schools, offering to buy the vote. There was a lot of corruption. "Real democracy is not possible over hungry people, because corruption disrupts democracy. Real democracy ought to be established with all over social justice and employment for everybody." The bearded Cuban prime minister was asked during the interview when he intended to have an election in Cuba. 'What we' want," he said, "is to get as soon as possible a condi- ion for a free election. It is not n any condition more than four years, in any condition." As for where his heart lies in the struggle between communism and democracy, he said "really, Truman Quips At Dedication up, LAMAR, Mo. (AP) — "It's lik being buried and dug up whil you're still alive." That was former President Hai ry S. Truman's comment Sunda; when the little house in which h was born was dedicated as a pub lie shrine. "I'm glad they dug me Truman added with a grin. He told a cheering crowd of 2,00 that usually "they don't do this t former presidents until they hav been dead 15 years." Truman, who will be 75 May 8 said he was overwhelmed by th tribute. The six-room, white frame cot tage was bought by the United Auto Workers Union for $6,000 am given to the state of Missouri. Th deed was handed to Gov. James T. Blair by Leonard Woodcock UAW international vice president The State Park Board has re stored the house, furnished it in period style and opened it to the public. Truman was only 11 months old when his parents moved from Lamar to a fafni in Jackson County near Kansas City. But that makes no difference to the residents of Lamar, a town of 4,000 population 122 miles south of Kansas City.
