editorials "We Off-Liniits Boys Have To Stick Together" Hal Boyle Says: Answer to Smoking ^ new method to help smokers break their amok- ing habits has been launched by a cancer research- treatment center in Buffalo, N.Y. Accepting as fact that cigarette smoking causes lung cancer, the researchers have worked on the assumption that many smokers realize this but can't break the habit. They hope to develop techniques which can l>e used by other physicians and lay groups throughout the country. What they are using arc nicotine .substitute drugs. Fifty smokers on the center's staff, who volunteered for the program, have found the drugs medically safe and acceptable to the smoker. Tn capsule form, the drugs contain a nicotine fuibftitute, and also something to control the appetite, since many persons become heavy eaters when they stop smoking. This won't be good news to the tobacco industry, which already has felt the effects of the lung- cancer reports. But it should be welcome words for the smoker who knows he's injuring his health but doesn't have the will-power to knock the habit. We can't criticize the smoker, but can be concerned for his or her health. Letter fa the Editor About Andrew Sabine A recent article in DISTAFF SIDE inquired who was, or is, Andrew Sabine? For the information of new comers, Dr. Sabine was one of the earliest doctors of Garden City and Finney County, and a noted authority on medicine, surgery, and treatment of human ills. He was well- educated, served as a doctor in the Union Army, and came here as a man about 50 years of age. Many of us had the honor of having Dr. Sabine {is family phyisician ait the time of our birth. He was one of two doctors who came here in early days (Dr. Geo. L. Neal was the other), and they stayed through good and bad years when others left. T obtained information that in the early 1880 period Dr. Sabine owned 4,320 acres of land in north Finney County, mostly pasture, but valued in the period at about $30.000. He lost heavily on sheep and cattle in the 1886 blizzard, but stayed and won his Avav back financially. That same land today probably is valued at a half million dollars. The doctor was an early vice president of the First National Bank, and later president. Highly respected among businessmen, his presence in any meeting always had its effect on a group. As a member of the city council, and mayor, Dr. Sabine was highly regarded, and gave of his best to interests of the city. Tn later years on the school board, he was in- torosited in better schools and much of the educational groundwork laid in Garden City in the early 1900 period was duo to his influence. He regarded schools' as of utmost importance. Tt can be truthfully said of the good doctor that he did much for people in a professional capacity, and rendered service as a physician and surgeon in many cases where he never was paid for either his skill, or for medicine he gave the patients. Mrs. Sabine was a member of the Congregational Church, and the doctor often attended church with her. In later years. Christabelle Sabine Mead donated a communion table to the church in memory of her parents. We youngsters at the early years of the 20th century had a wholesome respect for Dr. and Mrs. Sabine: both were our friends and our counselor in some circumstances. When we went to their home on an errand Mrs. Sabine would usually bring out some tasty sample of dessert for the kids. We liked to go to their home. It was fitting the Junior High School was named for Dr. Sabine, and it is regretted the designation is being lost in renaming the junior high. The school owes much to Dr. Sabine for early development and progress. Men such as Dr. Sabine, F. A. Gillespie, ,T. L. Van Schiack, R. .1. Covert, and Charles Gorham deserved credit for all they did in the schools, and they all served at the same time on the board. Possibly this will enlighten newcomers on who the good doctor was, and what he did for Garden City in his years of public service. — J. 0.

"I could talk to my husband until I wa s blue in the face, and he'd never hear a word I say"— so runs the complaint. Actually, this is an exaggeration, as are most things that wives say. The fact is that the average husband listens a lot to his wife. This can be detected by the surprised look on hits face when she finally stops talking. Or, it is sometimes shown by an offhand remark he may drop while at lr*ch with his office cronies. Such as: "Well, guess what as- nine idea m'y wife has now. You wouldn't believe me if I told you. She wants me to buy a two-seated lawnmower so we can cut the grass together." Most husbands merely are play- Ing posscm when they appear deaf to what their wives are saying. Partly it's a matter of self-defense. It'ig also caused by a basic difference between the way men and women use conversation. A man feels he thinks a situa- tion through silently and then puts hi s message into words. But he believes a woman most of the time only uses words as a camouflage to hide her real thoughts— if any. So why listen? To him, feminine conversation i s like a waterfall, full of more sound than sense. But he is also well aware that, like a waterfall, it has the long slow inescapable power of erosion. It will achieve its purpose, however long it takes. JVIost husbands also have a conviction that their wives never start a conversation except with a hidden motive—to get a fellow to do something he doesn't want to do. That's why a husband is instantly wary when his wife switches off the television set, and says: "Henry, talk to me." Trapped, Henry leans back and waits. Grimly he vows this time to listen.

Air Forc e and was a hero of the Ploesti raids, established a small plastics company here in 1946 which now employs 450 workers and next year will double that. H e has developed a revolutionary new kind of plastic container and • is now producing half a million yogurt containers a day, a quarter of a down power at about 600 feet altitude. "We gel a five-second countdown from the tower," explained the pilot, "and at the count of zero we have to cut back our en- Sines no matter what. The passengers don't know it, but it's the most dangerous part of their flight to .Europe. It's called 'noise abatement.' I suppose some local politician put the pressure on, I don't know. All 1 know is that at that particular point in the flight we hav e no power to maneuver. If we had to get out of the way of another plane or som e emergency arose, we'd be out of luck." What has happened is that all international passengers are the victims of the growing controversy which has arisen between those- who live on the ground and those who fly over the ground near airports. While the debate continues, that first minute of flight by the giant jet s flying to Los Angeles, San Francisco, London. Rome and Paris is the most dangerous part of live journey. American businessmen of Greek origin have organized a private "'id unofficial Marshall Plan of their own for tli e Greek economy, and it is having important effects. (1 recce and Turkey were the first countries, tlu>n in desperate oeonomk' .straits, to benefit from the Truman Doctrine in 1947 and later the Marshall Plan. The contrast between the limping Greece which 1 saw after the war and the pulsating, vigorous Greece of today is amazing. But U.S. aid lias now stopped, and this tiny, mcky country with just about the same population as the city of New York is on its own. ers By far the most ambitious private aid for Greece is being launched by Tom Pappas, former Republican national committeeman from Massachusetts, former ambassador to Uruguay, and one of the big money-raisers for Ike in the 1952 and 1956 elections. Pappas is raising around $160,000,000 to build an oil refinery, a petro-chemical plant, and a steej mill in the Salonika area — projects which will revolutionize that important part of Greece. H e has enlisted the support of Standard Oil of New Jersey. And whereas the United States govenment put up $150,000,000 in loans and grants to build a steel mill in Turkey, (aft- ter Turkey hired Tom Dewey as attorney) Pappas is raising the $160,000,000 on his own. At first some of the Greek newspapers were skeptical, wrote editorials critical of Pappas's motives. But gradually they have come around to realize that the development of the Salonika area will be a great thing for Greece, and that his American son of Greek parents is doing on his own what 'governments have had to do in other countries. As for Pappas himself, he says: "I have one son. I've made plenty of money. All I have left in life is to make a good name for my family." Garden City Telegram Publi»h«d Daily Except Sunday and Flv.
