Tha 0WAWA HERALD Tue«da>-, April 21. 19S9 Uff-A-Day Editorials Bit Of History The announcement the city Is Wiling tms in Forest Park to pave the way for flood control stirred a former resident, Fred Brinkerhoff, editor of the Pittsburg Headlight to write the following editorial. Ottawa hai just sold walnut trees to • lumber company for 14.727. The trees, old giants, are in Ottawa's historic and once beautiful Forest Park. Unfortunately they are near the bank of the Marais des Cygnes river which forms the south boundary of the park. They were doomed because the flood control project now In prog* ress, includes the river bank. Forest Park was generally conceded to be the state's most beautiful natural park for halt a century, it was there before the- state was twenty years old. Established by Ottawa pioneers, it had 40 or 60 acres at the start and there were additions through the early years. The park received its greatest fame because it was the home of the Ottawa Chautauqua Assembly, an institution that had national prominence for hiree decades, beginning about 1680. Erected in it was a very large structure called the tabernacle which merely was a roof over the seats and a wide stage. It was built on a slope from the high ground of the park down toward the river. Other structures were erected as facilities for the site of the Franklin County fair. There was a fine race track with the wire only about 100 feet from the big tabernacle. But the horse races came at a season not in conflict with the Chautauqua. The park was used for numerous other gatherings and, of course, functioned as a recreation place for the whole community. The big trees were the park's finest asset. The old walnuts that are doomed welcomed famous persons to the park, principally in th« Chautauqua days. They were there to greet John A. Logan, famed Civil War general and statesman when he addressed one of the greatest throngs ever assembled in Kansas. Rutherford B. Hays, former President, walked under their shade. They witnessed the visits of Wil.iam Me- Kinley and William Howard Taft, Presidents to be. If they had ears they heard the great volco of William Jennings Bryan several times. They could have listened to Robert M. LaFollette, the elder to Jonathan P. Dolliver, th« Iowa statesman, and Champ Clark, the Missourian who almost reached the Presidency. They could have been thrilled by the lecture or lectures of General John B. Gordon, one of the great Confederate heroes. And they witnessed the appearance of Richard P. Hobson who tried to bottle up the Spanish fleet in Santiago by sinking a ship. They were admired by dozens of others whose names were household words in the nation, including foremost clergymen of the day, jurists whose names loomed large, explorers, literary figures and others. Almost every person of importance in Kansas came to en oy the oratory and park in those years. Also to the park and the trees came on other occasions for political rallies and other events scores of men and women of national prominence, including a former President, Theo, dore Roosevelt. The irees were there to witness the huge celebration which was given for units, of the 20th Kansas returning from the Philippines, with General Fred Funston on hand to participate. They were a part of Kansas history in a colorful period preceding the turn of the century and immediately following it. This And That byiph The state Legislature appropriated $25,000 for the celebration of the Kansas Centennial. The sum staggers by its Insufficiency. Old-timers will only conclude from the current Hurry over nepotism in Washington that it is a hereditary disease. Whenever we read a balance sheet without an item in it marked "Misc." we feel the firm involved has so nearly a perfect bookkeeper that it should be suspicious of him. '|t was hardly a tactful guest who at a recent party dropped an all-purpose vitamin pill into his coffee to give it strength. Some men seem to think that by talking out of both sides of their mouths they can produce sterophonic sound. If ships continue to collide as frequently as they have recently, there will be talk of putting traffic lights along the ocean lanes. Paradoxically, safety aids have been the cause of some of'the collisions, if not all. New-fangled radar has not proved a successful substitute for old- fashioned care. Before the Texas Legislature is a bill which would prohibit the purchase of air-conditioned cars for public officials. For the next to largest state, isn't that being mighty small? Grandpa had his simple pleasures, but he never had the thrill of getting back to his car parked longer than the limit while the meter checker was only 20 yards awpy. Prayer For Today As thy days, so shall thy strength be. (Deuteronomy 33:25.) PRAYER: Our Father, we thank Thee that Thou dost know each of us Intimately. Therefore, we will not fear what the future may bring to us, for our times are in Thy hands. We leave ourselves in Thy keeping. In the name of Christ. Amen. AuU Lang Syne Makes A Million Off Of Shoe Polish Ideas Ur>| Fitturu Syndicate, Inc., World r!|M» rctrvel "I'm not losing a. daughter, I'm gaining a home." Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: Please write an article •bout what causes blackouts.—Mrs. H.N." Blackouts can vary from a monetary dazed state to actual collapse and loss of consciousness, usually quite brief. It can happen to perfectly healthy young people — as witness soldiers standing rigidly at attention for a continued time. I've seen ithcm, suddenly fall flat on I their faces, "out cold" for a [moment. Yet it didn't indicate [any fault of health, and there [was no aftermath. Then again, there may be a [particular cause for a black- lout. Any disturbance in cir- I eolation of blood to the brain jean cause it •— certain types rof heart block, an irregularity Dr. Molner of heart rhythm (but don't think that the common "nervous palpitation" means you are going to black out), the cpasm of a blood vessel in the brain —• all these can cause a blackout. If • person happens to be susceptible to this, pressure on the side of the neck on * special- tied bit of tissue overlying the carotid artery can do it. The carotid artery carries blood to the brain. A tight collar, a certain twist of the neck, a towci tucked snugly around the neck by a barber, are samples of the simple things that by chance can exert enough pressure to cause a blackout if the individual happens to be highly sensitive at that point. Sudden changes of position, just like prolonged standing, can cause a brief blackout, by interfering momentarily with the circulation. People with extremely low blood pressure are more likely to be subject to this. Likewise a sudden fall in the blood sugar level (hypoglycemia) can cause a blackout, because the brain is dependent on this sugar for its nutrition. Still other possible causes are epilepsy, head injuries, multiple sclerosis, mild strokes, etc. To give you a notion of combinations of factors, I recall a woman of 40 or so who had blackouts, chiefly at work. She was a clerk and was on her feet. Careful examination showed she had some gall stones and had low metabolism, and an electroencephalograph (brain wave test) showed •n abnormal pattern similar in nature -to mild The gall stones were removed (they had bee"n causing digestive disturbances), thyroid brought use of anti - convulsant medication kept the epileptic aspect under control. She went back to work and had no further blackouts. There are so many different causes that there is no profit in trying to generalize, but a thorough examination is well worth while. "D«»r Dr. Molner: I do not ovulate two months out of five. Can an operation correct this?—Mrs. J.M.W." Surgery will not correct this situation. Ovulation is a response by the ovary to hormone stimulation, and the failure to ovulate is a quirk in physiology. NOTE TO MRS. A.J. (and others): An earlier answer in this column concerning circumcision said that (in that particular case) the operation was possible. However, that does not mean that it is necessary in all cases. While I approvft of it as a routine matter at birth, In cases where it was not done, then there is only occasional reason for doing it later in life. In the case of your son, you already have the answer: It isn't necessary in his case. So don't do it. Want to lose weight? It can be done If you follow the advice given in my pamphlet, "The Lost Secret Of Reducing." For a copy, write to me in care of Box 158, Dundee, 111., enclosing a self-addressed, stamped envelope, and 5 cents in coin to cover handling. (Please enclose a large envelope.) By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - "It Isn't work. Their answer: A revolution- enough to have a good idea—you have to do something about it," said the man who changed 'the smell of shoe polish. At 43, Irving J. Bottner is America's shoe polish king—and a one-man idea factory. Bottner decided that the 70-mi,lion-dollar annual industry was static and addicted to old ways. But how do you glamorize a hlng like shoe polish? "The way (a make money in his country is to capitalize on people's natural laziness," said Bott ner. "You look for * way to make asks easier and pleasanter." He made a survey and found hat 75 per cent of American men —and nearly all women—polish heir own shoes, but regard the chore as arduous, dirty and un Peasant. Bottner came up with a "standup shine bar" for the home, and pushbutton cleaners that could be sprayed on shoes without staining socks or hose. But most women objected to the odor of shoe polish. "Why should shoe polish have to smell like shoe polish?" Bottner asked himself. He decided it didn't have to. He put his chemists to ary new cleaners grances. "Until now the average family has spent less than $2 a year for shoe cleaning preparations," said Bottner. "If we can raise that figure to $3 or $4, the industry will have its biggest boom in history," As a child, Bottner's playpen was a wicker basket in the small Bronx hand laundry run by his parents. Life was hard; When he was 8, he went into the streets without a shoeshining outfit and earned $2 to $3 a week to help out his home. 95 Years J. H. Smith, of southeast of Ottawa, went to Rexford, Kas., to bring back a Percheron Stallion he had purchased. Miles MePeek, district federal statistician was here checking on corn-hog contract tabulators. A ten was born to Mr. and Mrs. Let B. Me- Reynolds, 5?0 N. Cherry. 50 Tears Ago Mrs. Mary Cobb-Burllngham, who had taught school in Ottawa, accepted a teaching position in the public schools at Joplin, Mo. H. C. Stewart went to Vinland, in Douglas County, to set out raisin trees. David Rouih and Miss Dot Roberts, both of Princeton, were married in Ottawa. Television Programs Channel 4, NBC Channel S-ll, CBS Channel t, ABC kit in that five contains different shoe fra- nc also went around the neighborhood knocking on doors, trying to drum up new business for the laundry. "I learned early you can't and wait for opportunity to knock," he said. "If you're ever to find real opportunity, you have to go out and start knocking yourself." He worked his way through college, took an $18 a week job as a warehouse clerk with a frozen food firm. It was a new field, crying for new ideas. Bottner's ideas soon won htm advancement. His genius for finance as well as promotion led to a better job with a paper bag manufacturer. "I helped pioneer vacuum cleaners on wheels and thin-wall air conditioning units," he recalled. "Going on doing old things in the same old way is a sure way to die of dry rot. The only real adventure in business is to develop new methods and new ideas." It was this challenge that led Bottner to accept his present post, and the boy who once got a nickel a shine now is on the path that leads to millions.

A lot o; oiks said of her replacement 'Who's Lee Remick?" They'll be finding out. The role Is even more provoca live than the one that introduced Lana 20 years ago in "They Won' Forget." As Lana did in tha film, Lee plays a girl whose flaunt ing of sex fosters violence. What's more, she'll wear a sweater too But in other respects, the t actresses offer a striking contras of the traditional and the new in film stars. Lana is the classic ca,s< of the girl who was discovered on a malt-shop stool and fashioned by a studio into a living legend. On location here, Lee comment ed: "I just couldn't be that way I'm simply not the glamor-gir type. I would be uncomfortable trying to fit into a studio's con ception of what a^ movie star is supposed to be. "I suppose it was differen years ago when the studios too people with no experience an made them into screen personal! ties. The actors didn't know wha hey wanted. But when you've ad training in TV and stage work s most of us have nowadays, you now what you want, and it isn't lamor." She's getting to the top on her wn considerable talent, not via he studio buildup. It's no rag-to- iches saga either; her father wned a department store in Quincy, Mass. She got started in ummer stock at an early age moved into road companies and op TV dramas. Her first movie was "A Face in he Crowd," which she admits was 'a dismal failure." But she made a firm impression as the hip swinging baton t w i r 1 e r who charmed Andy Griffith. Twentieth !entury-Fox got her for another sexy role in "The Long, Hot Sum mer,' 1 and she agreed to sign for one film a year. 9-Slgn 11:30 OH II iM »-Lale Bhow .HOC ft-Slin OK WEDNESDAY lt3U 4— Claisroora III* 5~Farm FacU 7iM 4— Today B — N«w» 7lU 4— Farm IMS D— Kangaroo iiOO 4-Today 5— Newi 13— N«wa I HO 5-Tnke F1v» IH5 S— Mernlnic Sh'w 13— Kangaroo I ijl B— Jim Dt&n »— Romptr hoora (IMS 13—Newi 8:85 13-Newi t:0» 4— Let's Ltarn 5-LI(e et Rilcy 13— Morning Play 1:30 4—County Fair 5— Edge ot NlRhl 8-Who U Ttrusl 13—Who U Trust 4:00 4—Peoples Choice 5— TV Toyland 5—Early Show 9—Bandstand 13— Bandstand 4130 4—Movie • tOO J-HICKOI 13—runtime »iW »— Mlckejr Mouse Ii-Gordon Elliott • t40 0—Take I I'46 Pencil Sharpener For Home or Office Fastens to Wall or Desk $1.29 STAFFORD'S 116W.3rd CH 2-4853 4— Treasure Hunt 5— Qodfrey S— Dally Word 13— Godfrey tiSS B— SoltDC* 11:00 4— Price It Right 5— I lx>v« Lucy 8— Whizio'B 13 — I Lovt Lucy 10:30 4— Concent ration 6— Top Dollar 13— Top Dollar 11:00 *,— TIC T»o Dough V-Lov* of Llf« t— Susie 13— Lov* of Lit* 13—Sports eito 13-Weather «:00 4—Newi 5—News 9-Sky King 1J—News «:10 4—Sports &—Sport* «iU 4— Newi 13-New* • :!0 5—Wetiber Hutchinson Attorney, Roy C.

Television Tide Swinging Back To New York By CHARLES MERCER NEW YORK (AP) — About year ago the television network, appeared intent on making Holly wood the capital of TV entertain ment. Now the tide appears to be turning back to New York. The list of filmed Westerns am comedies originating in Hollywooi s long. But with a few exception tie big, widely discussed pro grams of quality have continue^ o come from New York. It now certain that next season Nev York will firmly resume its pos ion as the nation's television cap tal. The reasons are numerous. Pos lively it is not because Hollywow echnicians and facilities are in erior to those in New York. I act, West Coast studio space more commodious. There have been some outstam ng shows from Hollywood thi season. Fred lAstaire's show un doubtedly was the best single son and dance program visible on th ome screen. Dinah Shore's pro. ram retains consistent quality. Playhouse 90" has offered many ne dramas from'thei West Coast. At the same time there have een "distressing failures. There ere high hopes for "Desilu Play- ouse" at the beginning of the sea- on. But it has proved generally o offer second and third-rate dramatic entertainment. Since it sells ie sponsor's product, however, it 111 return next season. As of the moment, the only dis- nguished drama one can expect j see originating from Hollywood ext season will be on "Playhouse 0"—and there are rumors that ome shows will come from New ork following the successful tap- ng of "For Whom the Bell Tolls" iere. Certainly New York has vast resources of acting talent. With the nnovation of tape, it's possible to [raw on the casts of Broadway lits to do TV shows in free time- as in "For Whom the Bell Tolls." 'roducer Fred Coe said that the most desirable cast for that drama was to be found on Broadway—not n Hollywood. There is another reason for the ascendancy of New York, however. This is the business center of television. Sponsors make their TV investments through agencies and networks here, and they like ,o be close to the scene of produc- .ion on big and expensive specials, I We Install All Types of Electrical Outlets Ask for Free Estimates 24 Hour Service CLARENCE McFADPEN-QILL HULL Phone CH 2-3760 or CH 2-2430 ENDS TONITE 'Long Hot Summer" ond "Lure of the Swamp" WED. -- SAT.
