. " 1 !f;V> AM*. iI*.-,' '• . 1. m The OTTAWA HERALD ** iWttto»day» AprtI 89. 1889 ; Editorials Think Hani! A firm, which manufactures a line of outboard motors has come up with a recommendation thfil fishermen should "think like a fish" if they desire t6 "improve their luck in the sport of angling. When you fish for a couple of hours, says the bulletin, and your luck is a complete zero, stop wearing out your casting arm, and sit down quietly and think like a fish instead of like a fisherman. They urge, for example, that if you do a bit of studying on what a bass would be doing on a real cold, or real hot day, you'll be able to figure out whether you should be on the creek bank fishing, or home with a good book, or something. The same applies, says the bulletin, to the walleye, the northern pike, or the muskic. The bulletin goes so far as to discuss such things as what a bass thinks about while It is waiting under a submerged log or in an aquatic weed growth waiting for a minnow to dart out into open water. It even talks about how the small mouth bass would be thinking differently than the large mouth bass about whfcre to lie in wait for a choice morsel to show up. Well, this business of thinking like a fish is probably all right, but— Isn't there an awful lot of that going around already? laff-A-Day Look Again, Prof! A Topeka biology instructor has announced that foxes are showing up in Kansas in increasing numbers, and the animals appear to be thriving. Look again, Professor, You're seeing things. This is 1959, and next year is 1060, and 1080 is an election year — a big election year. From precinct commltteemen to that important seat in the White House, up Washington way, offices are to be filled the country over. It isn't a bit too early for a lot of Kansans to start getting foxy. Look again, Profl This And That byjph Most banks now offer drive-in service if you wish to leave your money, but which will be the first to send a vice president out to your car with a blank note if you want to borrow some? Middle a*e is the period one is out of before he admits to himself he has entered. The new Tarznn in the movies is one of last season's basketball stars. One hopes he adjusts himself rapidly enough to his new profession so that he will not try absent • mindedly to dribble an ape. Predictions now are that GM will have its new "compact" car with a rear-end engine on the market in only four months. The two pressing questions are will it sell and who's going to sell it? Billy Graham sends word back from New Zealand that prayer could avert another war. Such optimism is admirable, but prayer never yet has and on the contrary has set off more than one, .Eddie and Liz are to get married in Mexico any day now, he for the second time and she for the third. In their league how many weddings does it take before one loses his amateur standing? Neighbor reports that his six-month-old pup has so completely taken over the house that apparently it hasn't dawned on him he's a dog. Within da.vs after Chicago was selected as the site of the 1960 Republican national convention, the price of haircuts advanced to $2 in that city. Can this be an omen that next year the Republicans will be expensively trimmed? AuW Lang Syne 25 Yean Afo A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Fidel Oliva, who lived on East Powhattan Street. New seats were being installed at the Webster Theater. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. John Powell, 611 N. Mulberry. 50 Years Ago County Clerk Baldwin was trying out a new type of adding machine which had only 10 keys instead of the customary fll'. The new machine was designed to add, subtract, multiply and divide. Marriage license was issued to Clarence Fredeen and Madelene Alwes, both of Ottawa. Mrs. Lena Marson went to Kansas City to visit friends. Prayer For Today Now if Christ is preached as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?d Corinthians 15:12.) PRAYER: Our Father, whose highest gift is life, we thank Thee that it is within Thy divine will to give us eternal life. Help us to seek daily 4his precious gift that by deeds of love and faith we may someday enter our eternal home; through Christ our Lord. Araea. 'The men were here today to repair the sidewalk." Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molncr: Arc pains and aches in the left arm, hand and sometimes leg due to other causes than heart? "I am 42 and highly strung. I just had a complete examination by a heart specialist and was told everything is fine except that 1 am underweight, Yet every time I get an ache or pain in some part of my left side, I continue to worry and cannot get it off my mind (hat, perhaps, the tests have false readings.—A.D." Letters like this — the pains fmay be in different places and ;he fears varied, but the [principle is similar — are not I uncommon. I get a lot of [them. This one is quite typical. Several years ago I mention- Jed a little teen-age incident of ] spitting a bit of blood, ;and (worrying, and "realizing" that Mt "must be" tuberculosis. What Dr. Molner it turned out to be was a wisdom tooth that sort of chewed up the gum a bit as It erupted. To this day, I still feel that the reassurance from the doctor was worth the money — in those days an office call was about $2.50 as I recall R, plus a bottle of fizzy pills that the doctor gave me to take. I know now that they didn't do n thing for (or against) my wisdom tooth, but they kept me occupied for three or four days until I accepted the truth of the matter, which was simply the fact that nothing ailed me except an over-active imagination. Now I don't necessarily say that nothing ails "A.D." Maybe something docs. But it doesn't have to be heart trouble just because certain pains on the left side sometimes accompany heart trouble. The real trouble may be arthritis, muscle spasms, bursitis, indigestion, emotional tension, poor posture, a pinched nerve, a mild strain from sleeping with your arm in an uncomfortable position, or something else. Any would fit "an ache or pain in the left side," To be sure, for each one of these casues (including heart disease) there would be some small but significant difference. I can't go into all the differences short of writing several books. But the symptoms would not be identical. That's the doctor's worry. But what's my advice to the person involved? I'm not going to say, "Go back to your doctor and ask him what ails you," I'm not going to say that it hurts a doctor's feelings for a patient to como in with the trouble already "diagnosed." It doesn't. I say, just be natural and frank about things. Go to your doctor and say you have such-and- such pains, and if you are saddled with some particular fear (as "A.D." happens to have heart trouble in mind) just say so. I gather that "A.D." has a private suspicion that the doctor is right. It isn't heart disease and it might be sheer nerves. But how to be certain? Just lay things on the line to the doctor. If you have some special fear, tell him, and he can take some extra precautions to make sure that it is — or isn't — what you fear. A faulty heart that can cause any pain at all • will give some further unmisakable signs that will be detected by the stethoscope or other instrumentation. "A.D.'s" heart, I'm sure, is sound as can be. If you have some special worry, tell your doctor. Then leave things up to him. There's nothing wrong with developing these fixations or fears. I've had 'em. Everybody has had 'em. But don't bottle 'em up. NOTE TO MKS. E.R.: These patent medicines (like the one you mention) that make such extravagant claims tip their own hand. A product that is really good doesn't have to brag like that! (2) Sodium carbonate is ordinary "washing soda." (3) Vitamin E contains several varieties of a chemical called tocopherol. D.M.L.: The growth of such hair at the age of 21 would, in my estimation, be worth a visit to your doctor. (And, depending on his findings, he may want to refer you to an endocrinologist. i "Dear Dr. Molner; I have had a yeast infection for over a year. Could this cause a woman to become sterile?—Mrs. G.S." Not sterile, but it could interfere with becoming pregnant. What about constipation? Many can be relieved of it, both mentally and physically, by reading my booklet "The Way To Stop Constipation."

They plan to go in droves this lummer—many for the experience of playing roles they never get on TV, some for the money. The American public will come in droves to see them. Some summer heater managers maintain television has been a tremendous x)ost to their business. One of thcte is John Kenley, director of one of the nation's nost successful summer playhouses in Warren, Ohio. From June 16 through mid-September he >acks 'em in a 2,600-seat auditorium at 90 cents to $2 a head. His theater is strategically located in an area roughly bounded )y Cleveland and Akron, 0., and Erie and Pittsburgh, Pa. "There are five million people n that area —, all of them watch- ng TV every night. "Jack Paar is keeping all of Ohio awake, for examp.e. They used to be 11 o'clock towns, but now they've become one o'clock towns." The people who flock to summer theaters want to see performers they've met on television, Kenlej' says. The most popular performer of recent seasons in his theater, he believes, is Genevieve, who appar ently took Ohio by storm as a result of her appearances on the Paar show. Kenley paid her $7,000 a week to play Warren last sea son. She's returning there this summer. Among others he has lined up for this summer are: Peggy Cass playing in "Born; Yesterday' ("She's popular nor because o; what she did in 'Auntie Mame, but because of the Paar Show Jaye P. Morgan in "Bells Are Ringing." .Virginia Mayo and Michael O'Shea in "Tunnel o Love." Dick Shaw in "The Seven Year Itch." Deborah Paget in Pajama Game." The list is long and impressive.

By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-Are Americans today afraid to speak out their mind? The question is raised by John Braine, one of Britain's brightest new literary talents. Many British visitors in the pasl lave complained that Americans if anything, are too vocal aboul :hings they know little about. Braine, after a two-week tour ranging from Boston to Chicago said: "This seems to be a country where I don't hear people giving their opinions out loud about any issues.' 1 "It might be fear. It might be something else. I haven't been here long enough to tell," he said Braine, classified as one of Eng land's "angry young men," a la bel that he detests, is author of a best seller, the story of a working class lad on the make—financial!: and • socially. . Here are a few other quick U.S mpressions by the 37-year-old uthor; "No one here seems to wear his air longer than two inches—which a frightening thing. It is rather ke being in an army camp. And all the little boys have heir hair shaved—as if for ring- orm. There is nothing wrong ith it. But why do they nil have i do it? It is so uniform." Too much conformity of any nd seems sterile to Btaine, a elf-educated writer who had to uit school at 16. In 1031 he gave p a "good safe job" as a, $28-a eek librarian to try his luck as writer. There, he recalled, he some mes had to pawn his best pair trousers to raise the price -for 1 meal, but at least "I had lased to remain a prisoner of my own timidity." Once you've been on your earn ends in a strange city, you're ot frightened of anything after hat. You may riot get to be a ery mature person, but you are our own master," he said. Braine is quietly proud of his orklng class origin. But as to eing one of Britain's "angry oung men," he said: "It's non- Easy Handling HILLMAN MOCK Meters 103 N. Main CH'2-3601 IS HERE! Does Your House Need Painting? Sherwin-Williams SWP is your best buy in house paint... sense. There Is no such group o! like-minded young writers «t all." He hopes, he said, to build a whole fictional world around the life of his time. "I don't know how many books it will take. Because I don't know how long I'll live." he said. "I write slowly—in longhand, and I write three drafts of each book. "To me the only reliable pleasure is work. You are born to do your job. "If you don't do it, you might as well be dead."
