&* OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, May 6, Editorials YOUNG OTTAWAN CYCLIST finds the park a safe place in which to ride his bicycle. Bikes, Bikes... This is a message to young Ottawa boys and girls who every day are upon the streets and sidewalks with bicycles. In case that Susie and Jimmy, didn't get to read this message, Mom and Pop, then we ask that it be conveyed to them. You see, it concerns them and you. Just recently, the National Safety Council released a statement that said in four out of five bike-motor vehicle accidents, the bike rider is violating the law. It based its information on a study of bike accidents in the United States. After conducting this study, the council came up with some suggestions that may help Ottawa bicyclists. Says the council: Obey traffic laws — traffic lights and signs are for bike riders, too. Stay on the right. Ride with traffic. Ride single file. Never zigzag. Make sure your bike's in good condition. When traffic is heavy at a corner, get off and push your bike across the street. Stay within the crosswalks. Don't ride your bike at night unless you have to. And then, make sure your bike has a light and rear reflector. Wear clothing that is light colored or that shines in the dark so you can be seen easily by motorists. These good, sound rules could prevent Ottawa bike riders, if they obey them, from becoming one of the 400 or 500 bike riders killed each year in accidents with motor vehicles. Jimmy and Susie don't want to become a statistic. This And That Frank Lloyd Wright is no more. He was the most individualistic and probably the greatest architect this country ever has produced. He lived 89 years and enjoyed every minute. Indubitably he was one who would rather be Wright than President. One home town boy has made good as the superintendent of a rest home for retired millionaries back east. "My work is ministering to the sick and greedy," he explains. The missile division's first seven select space men have been dubbed astronauts. One JPH hopes no one of them proves astronauty enough to stray from the straight and narrow path to the Milky Way. Local businessman has been invited to a conference in Chicago on the Care and Preservation of the American Executive. He is preserving himself by not going. Barring last minute changes in plans, next Tuesday Sir Winston Churchill will again be occupying the spare bedroom in the White House. This is no idle roomer. The outstanding misfortune of a friend is that the only temptations which ever confront him are of the irresistible variety. A genius, by this column's definition, is someone who always refolds a highway map correctly the first time. Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: Can you te'.l me something about I.Q.'s? I have four children, one a pre-schooler. My oldest girl has an I.Q. of 126, the next, 135, and the youngest, a 9-year-old, 168. "This makes the oldest gjrl seem,almost dull in comparison, yet she received'ithree scholarships on graduation from high .school. "Is an intelligence test an accurate measure of one's in* telligence? The oldest girl has a lot of common sense (which the second girl lacks). Can this make up-in part for a lack of brilliance? "The oldest girl Is now a student nurse and continues to do good work. Her grades are almost all in the 90's.—Mrs. H.D." Dr. Molner Intelligence (whatever "intelligence" really means) is a fine thing to have. So is beauty- whatever that is. So is "common sense" — and I defy you to give me a definition of the term. So is a nice disposition good to have, or self-assurance (within limits), or natural kindness, or lots of other things that we all want to be or have, and can't define. Now where I come from, school officials and psychologists are pretty wary of letting parents know the I.Q. score of their children. And I rather think they are right in this, for several reasons. Some parents put too much store in an I.Q. Some give it too little weight. Sometimes a child gets a low score because he has a cold in the head and can't concentrate, or some boob behind him ("Boob" — that's a good old word that's gone out of fashion) is unobtrusively pestering him during the test. I.Q. tests are based on words, and how well a child understands them. So if you took a brilliant African or German or Polynesian child, who didn't know English very well, and gave him an I.Q. test, he would fail. There are also various types of tests. Not all will agree in the results. Yet all will be of considerable use, and a bright child will do well in them all. Even readers in the Bronx will admit readily that the Yankees don't win 'em all, and a 60 per cent record of winning will win the pennant from a team that wins only 59 per cent! The army uses intelligence tests to pick candidates from the ranks for Officer Candidate School. Yet I had reason to know about one regiment in which the highest test score was possessed by a man who never advanced byond assistant cook — and he wasn't very good at that because he devoted all his mental agility to devising ways to avoid work and get hold of liquor. Sometimes a child of modest "intelligence" possesses the art of friendliness and helpfulness, and perhaps does more to grease the wheels of civilization than a clever child who is selfish or mean. If I had my way, I'd never tell a parent an I.Q. score. I'd deal in generalities. I'd say (in exceptional cases) that a child is very bright and should be encouraged to follow skilled professions. And sometimes I'd say, unhappily as it would make us, that a child is mentally retarded and should be handled, and trained accordingly. Beyond that, I would say little about a "score." We have no way of measuring "intelligence" absolutely. We can only gain a fair approximation. And the other human virtues are the ones we can sometimes do something about — or at least encourage. I wonder if Attila the Hun may not have had a high I.Q., and perhaps Johnny Appleseed's was low. But who was "best"? Dear Dr. Molner: Your column on diaphragmatic hernia interested me, as I had such a hernia and suffered so much pain that even though I was over 80 I decided to have an operation. It was a perfect success and .1 have not had a pain since. Your column is interesting and your point of view sane and helpful. With best wishes, M.A.D." Thank you. Many such cases are better off with conservative treatment rather than surgery; some require surgery. I consider it of great importance to let people know that there isn't any special age at which one is "too old" for an operation, if it is needed. Hemorrhoids can be cured! If troubled with fissures, fistulas, itching and other rectal problems, write to me in care of requesting a copy of my booklet, "The Real Cure For Hemorrhoids," enclosing a la t rge, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20c in coin to cover handling. Prayer For Today Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a fatted ox and hatred with it. (Proverbs 15:17.) PRAYER: 0 God, possess our hearts and minds. Bless our home by the presence of Christ and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Thus may we and our home reflect Thy loving-kindness today. In the Master's name. Amen.
