OTTAWA HERALO Friday. May 1, 195S Laff-A-Day Editorials Keep Cool? Ottawans, sitting on the verge of scorching sunny weather, again begin to seek means of "keeping cool." Some drag out fans, some shove ice-trays into the refrigerator, some bring out light-weight wear, but the old standby to most is the modern air-conditioner. But just as we oil the contraption, whip off its winter cover and plug it in the wall socket, someone steps into the scene to shake up our plans. Enter now Dr. Rene J. Dubos, Rockefeller Institute scientist, who bluntly declares that air- conditioning isn't good for us. "Comfort of the moment may have to be paid for in the future in the form of respiratory and circulatory disorders," says he. It seems that living creatures, like us, have "built-in biological clocks" which provide a daily or seasonal rhythm for such varied things as production of hormones and changes in body temperature. They also have evolved complex mechanisms for adjusting to variations in light, weather, purity of the air and other environmental factors. "It is obvious that air-conditioning has already contributed to general comfort, relief of allergic symptoms and increase in efficiency," he admitted. "In reality, however, air-conditioning has biological complications that transcend comfort and working efficiency," the scientist said. What the scientist says may be true, and far be it from us to contradict him. But we like the cool, coolness of the machine. Furthermore, what's the difference if you suffer from "disorders" later on or fry yourself when you're young? Ship Ahoy! A big freighter has sailed the Atlantic from a port in Europe and pulled right up at the dock in Chicago by way of the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Great Lakes. This can mean something pretty big f o r Chicago, Detroit, and other cities along the water route. We live in a world of rapid change. Today, while a band of citizens of Oregon are crawling across half of the country by way of the covered wagon to commemorate the mode of travel of only a century ago, sleek jet planes skim along overhead carrying passengers from coast to coast in little more time than it takes the "wagon master" of the Oregon trippers to scan the horizon for a suitable camping site, form the wagons in a circle against possible Indian attack and bed down for the night. Daily, giant airplanes span the oceans with passengers bound for London, Paris, Rome, Cairo or other far-away cities, and it is only a bit over 30 years since Charles Lindbergh climbed into a tiny airplane which today hangs near the ceiling iu one of the buildings of the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D. C., and made his famed crossing of the Atlantic to blaze the trail. Where do we go from here? This And That by if* Ingrid Bergman left Hollywood in 1949. Ten years and two husbands later she came back for the first time. Navy frogmen have set a record by remaining 48 hours under water in a heated swimming pool. Unfortunately, when military use of this prowess is required, it will be in an unheated ocean. Ag part of an extensive modernizing program, we understand a city bank has provided its loan department with a lie detector. Ufa,. ..i'j.'/,-;JHM Since most other businesses -* *^^^B * have arranged themselves so that the customer doesn't have JPB to move from behind the wheel, it is surprising some fool has not built a drive-in supermarket. Imagine the traffic jam that would be built up in the wake of some bride trying to make up her mind as to which brand of canned peas. The baseball season opened without the President's being on hand to throw out the first ball. This shows principally how far baseball now is from being the national game. Woodrow Wilson would not have dared to play hookey. The Parent-Teacher Association should establish a Bachelor's Auxiliary so its members would have an easier way of meeting the new female faculty each fail. One city after another Is adding "meter maids" to its police force. There is yet no record, however, of a meter maid being pinched by an overtime parker and pinching him in return. Seven out of 10 men smoke. Only three out ol 10 women do. This is what makes shares in tobacco companies growth stocks. "No wonder she says he's dreamy. What he needs is a good night's sleep!" Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: My doctor said I had a heart skip bu^ that it is nothing to cause alarm. He said it was common in a nervous - type person such as I am. I smoke quite a bit and I worry, loo. Do nerves or smoking cause this condition? Also 1 have eczema on my hand. Could this come from nerves?—D.R.M." Of all <he things that bother |nervous peopie, I suppose the [heart skip, or palpitation, or [pounding of the heart is the post "popular." Or if it isn't [popular, it's certainly common. Do nerves play a part in Jthis? Let me ask you a question in reply. If you are fright- jened, startled or excited, 'doesn't your heart beat fast- Dr. Molner 8r? Qr sometimes seem to "stand still"? That is perfectly normal. Now, if you are a nervous, high-strung person, and consequently tense, you must expect this nervous tension to have such a reaction. For a further question, how about this: When you are totally absorbed in something — a story, a game, a trip or whatever — isn't it true that at such times these "heart skips" don't occur? Or if they do, you pay no attention? Fear or worry or "nerves" will thrive on sitting and thinking. (By "thinking" I mean fretting.) The best antidote is getting busy — either getting busy at solving whatever your problem is, or getting busy at something else interesting and useful. Most people don't get nervous in the midst of an emergency. But sometimes they get the shakes after it is all over. Most people don't worry, even if the house catches fire, if they are busy getting themselves out of the burning house, and calling the fire department. These are probably far-fetched examples, but I think you can see what I mean. Worry feeds on worry! Action and staying busy reduces the amount of lime for worry. The person who just dreams up things to worry about is his own worst torturer. But I'll tell you something else, too. The "nervous" person also has a great talent. That talent is the nervous energy itself. That type of drive can lead a person to a great many accomplishments if the nervous energy is used instead of letting it find an outlet in worrying. Your're going to say it isn't easy to do. No, it's not. But it can be done, so use your nervous energy in finding the way! As to smoking contributing to the trouble you describe, yes, it's known to do just that. Not to everybody, but to some. About the eczema, I'll have to hedge. There isn't the slightest doubt that nervous folks have more of this sort of trouble, so I think we can honestly say that nerves can "cause" it. There are so many physical causes, however, that in my opinion most skin disorders — or anyway a large proportion — demand treatment from two directions at once. One is for the nerves, the other for whatever physical irritant is at work. And I'll bet you know what I mean when I comment that a person with an itchy rash never thinks about it when, for example, running to catch a bus. But if you are sitting still doing nothing, it starts to itch. And you scratch. And it itches worse. Vicious circle! NOTE TO MRS.

In the Herald, April 26, was deeply ap- >reciated, because it provides a timely opportunity to use your column during National Mental Health week to say something which would appear to need say- ng. It seemed to me that although you, too, are very concerned to know the why of such wanton destructiveness as the school house incident, you assume that your allies in finding the answers to such whys (the modern psychologists and psychiatrists) have no other interest than idle curiosity in finding such answers. You say, "The modern psychologist, or psychiatrist, probably could give ah explanation that would .neither bring the wrong-doers to justice or replace the broken window panes." The implication is that you think /psychologists and psychiatrists do not believe in discipline or in the kind of personal responsibility for ones own actions, without which no group could long survive. If this is what you believe, this is a gross misunderstanding of our point of view. Our work with disturbed children brings home to us time after time how lost a child can get if he does not receive consistent, firm, patient discipline throughout his childhood from the adults around him. One excellent way for a child to learn responsibility SATURDAY 7:30 \. m. 5—Western 8:00 13—Cartoons 8:30 4—Cartoon &—Kangaroo 13—Kangaroo 1:00 4—Howdy Doody t:30 4—Ruff 'n' Reddy &—Mighty Mouse 9—Farm Hour 13—Mighty Mous* lOlOO 4—Fury S—Heckle.

So you see, we would agree with the replacement of broken .window panes. But, more importantly, we would want to understand the motives which lay behind the destructive acts, precisely in order to help the particular individual learn more appropriate ways to deal with his feelings—to the end of being able to exercise greater self-discipline. This might not be the retributive "justice" you imply you would. like to see; but then, the concept of "justice tern- pered with mercy" is older than the psychologists and psychiatrists and we are not alone hi subscribing to such a concept. It seems to surprise some people to learn that often children, and especially the teen-age child, will misbehave in order to force firm discipline from the adults •around them. They know, even if the, adult world doesn't always, what they need to help tfiem grow up into stable self- disciplined, responsible adults. So it would appear to me that your "Why" answered when we get the answer to an other onestton. This is the w question of how all responsible'adults everywhere can resolve misundcr standings between them a n d work together toward 'the conimon goal of discovering how to help our young grow into responsible productiv.3 maturity, capaUe of putting all their aggressive energies into the creative building of their own tomorrow.
