Tito OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday. April &. less laff-A-Day Iditorials What's The Use Somewhere deep In the -hills of India, the Dalai Lama has once more moved into his traditional seclusion. His arrival at a mountain retreat ends a long flight from his native land of . , _ Bttt what of his people and his homeland? The same day his arrival at Ghandi's former retreat was announced, the Red Chinese announced increased spending lor military purposes, the assumption Is the additional outlay for arms will be used to mount an expedition into Tibet to put down the rebellion which forced the religious leader of Tibet to flee. It must be remembered that the past three years the Dalai Lama has ruled in Tibet alongside the Chinese Communists under e treaty signed in 1956. According to his dramatic report issued several days ago he was forced to flee after monks had been enslaved, religion suppressed and monasteries and his own palace fired upon.

It Is once again apparent, the Communists, whether Chinese or Russian or any other breed look upon nothing as sacred whether it is a written treaty, a verbal promise, or a religion. How can you deal with Communists? It makes you wonder what good could be achieved by a summit meeting toward which flm 48 _ Mrs we are now heading. Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER •Dear Dr. Molner: Do adults have worms? I just discovered one and it has me worried. I This And That byj WASHINGTON — The Capitol couldn't have looked worse since the British set it afire in the War of 1812. The east entrance has been stripped off. Hie stones which made up the massive flight of steps and classical columns, each carefully identified, have been strewn in semi-orderly piles out in front. Temporary trnfficways, some not even paved, twist among them. Doorways and windows have been boarded over. The dome, for the moment, unsupported, just out by several feet over a big hole in the ground far below. To the northeast a mighty trench cuts across the park A^SSSf \ that goes to the new Senate of- m ^Bf' 1 fice building. In it is the con- ^** crete shell of the subway which JPH will save three dozen members of the upper hruse a long block's walk in the rain. To the southeast there is another great area of disorder incident lo construction. Here is being built a vast structure which can only be termed the new, new House office building, to differentiate it from the existing old and new ones. On the west side of the Capitol the scene is more serene. Only one item has been added to the familiar view, but H is a conspicuous one. It is a 100-foot shaft of white marblo with the chaste lines of an upended cracker box. Slits have been cut into it near the top to reveal the bells of the carillon within. It clashes architecturally with everything else in sight. At the base of this glistening shaft, which lies to the northwest down the slope of The Hiil, is a larger-than-life statue of the honorcc. Senator Bob Taft of Ohio, "Mr. Republican," himself. For all his political attainments, he had a Casper Mi'.quetoastish appearance in the flesh. This now has been perpetuated in bronze. Whatever the aesthetics of the Taft memorial, as a precedent it is questionable. Washington may be rife with stone generals on horseback and bronze replicas of men who now are only footnotes to history. But never before has such a graven image been erected to a senator. Taft, who hardly is to be listed among the 20 all-time greats in Congress, has been given equal billing with Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln. His memorial may be smaller, but theirs lack carillons. Now that an example has been made, one shudders to think of the stone pyres to appear In the Washington future. Consider, for instance, Senator Lyndon Johnson, "Mr. Democrat," himself. If Taft properly casts his shadow 100 feet into the capital skyline, in due time the admirers of Johnson will demand that he be immortalized with something rising higher than the dome of the Capitol itself. Since these admirers are, tor the most part, s, there will be nothing to stop them. Auld Lang Syne 25 Years Ago A. A. Clark of near Ruhamah Church in the Richter area, reported his corn was doing fine and had reached a height of 6 inches. Mrs. J. A. Miller, Chinook, Mont., was here for a visit with Mrs. Fannie DeWa'.d. Seven Ottawa High School students were entered in the music contest at Emporia. They were: Wendell Plank, Jack Happy, Laura Gruver, Kathryn Profitt, Carl Snyder, Mildred Wright and Paul Smart. 50 Years Ago A number of Ottawans were making quite a howl about an Ottawan who tied the family driving horse at a hitch rail near a church and left the animal there in a downpour of rain from 7 p.m.t to about 11 p.m., while the Ottawan attended a missionary meeting at the church. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Larson, 329 S. Ash. Misses Anna and Florence Given, of Wavcrly, were here for a visit with Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Henderson. The Ottawa Herald 106-106 S.

Television Dear Teacher, You Learned Me Good Programs Channel 4. NBC ChanMl 5-13, CBS Channel I, ABC WEDNESDAY Worms, those annoying and very frequent parasites, may not be in the most romantic field of medical study, but there aren't many health nuisances that are more common. The above letter does not specify whether a pinworm or tapeworm, or some other type of worm, is meant, I should rather assume that a tape worm of some sort is intended, since pinworms arc so small that it is not likely that a single one would be discovered unless you were looking for it — a full-size pinworm resembles a bit of white thread perhaps a fourth Dr. Molner of an inch long. Other worms are measured in inches, and may be as much as a foot long. In either case the answer is the same. Yes, adults have worms. Such parasites merit immediate treatment, but I don't think Mrs. J. should be "worried." Worms seem to exist for no purpose other than to "live at somebody else's table," which is the approximate meaning of the word "parasite" in the first place. They may irritate, upset the digestive tract, sometimes (as pinworms) cause severe rectal itching, especially in children, and promote nervousness and irritability. But they are not, in plain language, what you could call dangerous to life. I have seen whole families infested with pinworms — father, mother and children. Such worms are readily passed from person to person, and since the worm is small, the egg (which is the form in which it is transmitted) is smaller sti 1. It thus is pointless to treat one person in the family if nil are carrying the worms. Along with medicine to drive off the pinworms, everyone must be made aware of the necessity of the most meticulous hygine: scrubbing (not just rinsing) the hands before eating, keeping hands away from mouth and face, frequent washing of linen — particularly undergarments and bed sheets. For one little, almost invisible egg, if swallowed can start a new colony of worms. Gentian violet has been a successful remedy for many years. Other new and effective drugs have been developed. Obviously your doctor will have to advise the drug and dosage depending on type of worm and size of the patient Tapeworms, these days, are less frequent than pinworms, but they still occur — beef tapeworms, or pork, or fish tapeworms, which is adequate reason, I think, to cook meat. Pork, of course, is a special case. Worse than the tapeworm Is the Irichinclla, which (if it is in the meat) can be destroyed only by thorough cooking. Anyway, the tapeworms affect adults more than children; pinworms are more often found in children. And there's the prevalent hookworm in the southern tier of states. In all case, the sooner treatment starts, the better. "Dear Dr. Molner: I am 12 years old and am self-conscious about my legs. They are very hairy. I would like to know if it would be harmful to shave them now, or should I wait till 1 am older?—J.W." No harm. Shave 'em. Just don't cut yourself. Is this really as noticeable as you think it is? NOTE TO MRS. R.: Injury is possible, of course, in that tender area, but it is very uncommon. This continuing painfulness warrants an examination by your physician to see whether infection, some unusual deformity, or other cause is responsible. Arc you bothered with ringing in the ears? If so, send for my booklet, "Ear Noises - Their Causes and Cures," enclosing with your request lOc in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. llW »-Hlekcm 13—Funtlra* l:M B—Mickey Mouse Ij-Oordon Elliott Ml 6~Ttk« • S—Got t secret 9— Accuse 13—Got i Secret I tOO 4—Your Life 6—fiteel Hour 9-FUhU 13—Lombsrde 13—BporU liM 13-W«*(h«f 6:M 4—Newt 6—New* B-Sky Klni 13—Newt • tlO 4—spun* 6-BporU «:1I 4-N«w« 13~N«W1 • HO 6— WlllHtr • :26 If— PerioDtllty • :SO 4— Wagon Train 8— Badge T14 e-weik 13-Twilight Th'r •JIM 5—Keep Talking 13- Keep Talking TtSO 4-Prlce In night 5—Trackdown ., 8-Oxrle-Harrlet 13~Trackdown Hi 00 4—Bob Hope 6-Mllllimnlre B— Donna Reed 13— Millionaire «:30 4— Hljhwny Pair. 13—Muile Th'r* .t:4» ft-Betty Miller 10 iM 4— Thentr* 8—Raiders •-News 13—Ntwi 101«« 13—Boyi Choir By HAL BOYLE I NEW YORK <AP)—An opon letter to an old teacher: Well, Miss Wolfson, 1 guess a lot of grammar has flown, (flowed, flew)—gone by the bridge since I studied English under you 30 some years ago in old Central High School in Kansas City, Mo. Them wore the—those were the —days! Like I say, when I see the kids raised up today I iust look at them and ask myself 'Well, who raised them, and whal did they have in mind—civilired monsters?" They do act like they Just go out of a flying saucer, blue jean. 1 and spelling and all. They can' spell sour appl, app, apples. Miss Wolfson, nobody got out of our class then who couldn't spell sour apples—over and over again. The same with "Friends, Romans, countrymen. I didn't just come here to praise him.' Caesar was ambitioutf." It sticks in my head yet. Miss Wolfson, you made those old days borne aliyc. I could al most see those old Romans, stand ^ so stiff and tall in their togas, and saying all those splendid things before they reached for their knives. Then, slash, crash and another empire had bit the dust. Kids today don't seem to get the same background. Maybe the classes are too large. Maybe no body cares. Sometimes I kind of feel like Hiawatha, alone in his canoe, paddling across a ribbon .of moonlight through a purple moor up to the old inn door, with the waters all around and everything mystic. There was an Indian who knew trouble. ' Miss Wolfson, after 30 years I can't get that poetic picture out of my mind. Hiawatha is still pad dling that canoe, and too proud to ask for fringe benefits. I remember one of the clever things you used to do to* get us used to the English language was to have us write little essays They didn't have to be about big things like life and et cetera, bu just something offhand like.

The reason is simple: television. Fans and visitors at the Mather Inn where the movie troupe is quartered often pass up players who work only in films. They want to know all about Eve and often ask, "Why aren't you mak ing 'Our Miss Brooks' any more?' This is heartening to our Miss Arden, who hasn't done the Brooks series for three years. Ye it continues to play and play bringing her added fame, if no more money. She sold out her in terest for a healthy chunk tha will be coming in over a period of years. The question at this point In her career 1s: What next? Sh and husband Brooks West are in "Anatomy," her first theatrica film in seven years. We won' count a full-length version of "Ou Miss Brooks" which failed t break any box office records. Will she try another TV series? "I don't think so, not for another year, anyway," she said, "I've American Investors Eye Italian Market AP By SAM DAWSON Business News Analyst ROME (AP) — American busi- ess is investing more money in taly with an eye toward getting nside the common market and nto the growing trade with the fiddle East. But even Italian officials will ad- nit the investment volume is much less than first hoped. The American businessman is Cheaper labor costs, growing con sumer markets here, and cheape transportation costs to the increas row on trees, and It was hard find a topic. Most of us looked the book—remember, Miss Wolfson ?-and there was a wholo st of suggested subjecks. The one that particular appealed 0 me was this here one about, •The View from my Window," and the minute I saw this suggestion I said to myself, "That's iuilt for me." We did have one fine window n our house then, and I still wish could tell you about the things [ saw from it. It Isn't eggsakly my fault that 24 of the 25 students in the class all wrote on the same subjeck— the view from their window. I still don't hold it against you, Miss Wolfson—that is, the grade you gave me. You must have got awful worn out reading about all those views from all those windows. Well, for old times sake, I thought I'd write you to say hello. And by the way my old seeker- tary has left me and the new girl 1 hired can't spell for sour apples, and I thought maybe you could te'.l me of a book that would set her strait. Lord knows who teaches them them, a veritable athema. ncreasingly cautious. Some Amer lean firms already here can offer some possible reasons, based on their own problems. Some Italian officials think that international tensions have been the chief but temporary roadblocks. They cite an apparent revival of confidence this year as a But Belgium, for one, stresses ower taxes and other special inducements and the high skills of ts workers. Italian central banking officers think Americans were scared off for a time by France's troubles! in Algeria and later by the Berlin 1 crisis, both potential upsetters of common market high hopes. But private bankers cite special Italian problems. One is the large amount of government owned industry, dating back to Mussolini's days, often in competition with private industry. They also point to government interest in protect ing local firms from competition with giant American companies which might come here. Your loving pupil, Roger Spring Is Sprung and the sign that investment by Americans is picking up and say that much talk of building plants here is under way. There Is even some hush-hush talk between American, Italian and French auto firms on joint production of a small car. Still the Italian government is disappointed. It counted on getting the major share of American in vestment by firms moving into the common market area.

Report Reds Control Iraq 5—Late Bhow !:00 I—Sign Off BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP)— Trav elers from Iraq daily bring out strikingly similar reports of a virtual Communist takeover of the country's major cities. Communist tactics in Iraq are notably reminiscent of what hap pened in Peiping, Shanghai and Nanking following the Communist takeover of China. These travelers — Americans, Europeans, Iraqis, Lebanese— report almost identical conclusions For all practical purposes the Communists have seized effective control of life in Baghdad, Basra Mosul and other Iraqi cities. What is going on in smaller towns anc the countryside is still not clear Some travelers claim Red pen etration into government is 90 per cent. Others report Communist ac tivities indicate it is only a matter of time before complete takeover. As the Chinese Communists did 10 years ago, Iraqi Communist agitators are keeping the main cities in a constant state of turmoil, confusion and excitement. American plants within the six- nation area presumably would en- oy all the benefits, while those outside would find increasing competition in trading in the area.

Oulput per cow climbed to a record high, but there was a reduction in the number of milk cows. In 1958 the decline was about 0 per cent, dropping the number to 394,000 head. Milk production in 1958 was placed at 2,005 million pounds, compared to 2,187 million pounds average of 2,473 million pounds the preceding year and an annual average of 2,473 million pounds for the 1957-58 period. This is considerably below production in the 1930s when it near the 3,500 million- pound level. Numbers of Kansas milk cows have shown an almost steady decline since hitting a peak of 967,000 in 1934. Averabe production per cow last year was 5,240 pounds compared to less than 4,000 pounds per cow in the 1930s- Value of 1958 milk production was placed at 73,3 million dollars compared to 76 7 in 1957 and a 10-year average of. 84.4.
