4 'fhe OTTAWA HERALD Friday. May 8. 1039 Editorials i 1 Music Helps Att Ottawa High School student has received a gold medal for excellence of her piano playing In competition with students all over the country. A competent music judge in Ottawa for a three-day period of piano auditions has reported that many young Ottawa pupils show great promise, These things do not just happen. Credit is due mainly to the Ottawa music teachers who have trained the students in basic technique, inspired in them a love for the beau- tifuli and encouraged them to discipline them- wives to a regular and conscientious practice tchedule. - Music teachers are a dedicated people, ti any piano teacher and you will find that She often inconveniences herself to teach lessons at odd times. The schedule is likely to be arranged to assure the child of an anticipated pleasure* regardless of the teacher's preference. These teachers have a love and interest in humanity as well as extensive knowledge and preparation for music teaching. One music teacher has sat on hard benches to watch her budding Rubensteins play ball, gone to countless other of her pupils' extra-curricular activities and listened to accounts of their current interests. Teaching music requires patience and a saving sense of humor. "They'll sure be a poppin' and a poppin' all over the place," one little boy confided to his teacher during a summer lesson. "What is going to be popping?" the astonished jady asked. "Why, the firecrackers of course. I'm going to go buy them as soon as I finish this lesson.' 1 As a class, music teachers display those qualities of leadership and personal integrity which fcuild positive character by example and association. A story of a college student's remark Illustrates this fact. "My music teacher does not do these (questionable) things and she is one of the most popular persons I know." * Do you feel that your child has too little talent to take lessons? A mother and a music teacher both have the same answer. "It is a good thing to be exposed to music through piano lessons and they form the basis for any other type of musical tram- ing" they-say. "Even should the pupil not go •far,' it opens a door to beauty he would not have known otherwise." Musicians report a greater demand for piano and organ than ever before. They admit there )s a shortage of good music teachers. It should be a good field for those so gifted. laff-A-Day This And That The time required for a piece of news to spread all over town runs in inverse ratio to the number of those attending the supposedly secret session at which the news was created. Incidentally, no one woman can keep a secret and neither can any three men.

The ideal gift next Christmas for the man who has everything. Split-level houses seem to have taken the play from ranch house models. They are an obvious improvement over the once standard two-story style since there are only half as. long stair. ways to fall down. Hospitalized friend must be on the mend. He 1 was lively enough yesterday to invited a nurse to come in and see his itchings. The recent conference on the care and preservation of businessmen came to the conclusion they shouldn't worry. But if they didnlt worry, they soon, would not have any business left to worry about. About the only remaining inspiration for people to take walks is Keep Off the Grass signs.

Prayer For Today Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of juch ! is the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 19:14.) • PRAYER: 0 Father, help us to grow daily in a Christian family. Save us from discouragement. May we have the knowledge and power to challenge successfully our everyday problems. Help 01 to dedicate our lives in service to those wW» whom we come in contact. In Jesus' name , IMS, King r«|ure.<Sinitii»lc. Inc..AV»rMr!rtt«r««rn<l. " "Doesn't seniority count for anything around here,?" Your Good Health ; By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molnfer: Please write an article on congenital heart. Is it serious, and can anything be done about it?—Mrs. K.Z." A "Congenital heart" is one that has had something wrong with it from birth. It isn't a matter of something having happened to it later. It developed With a flaw from the beginning — just as having six fingers, or a cleft palate, or & "birthmark," or some other unusual ^characteristic is a "congenital" fdefect. A heart is essentially a pump, |—and a marvelously efficient lone, too. Let's compare it to an [ordinary water pump. Of course the heart is more I complex, and more dur- jable, too, since a mechanical (pump needs new "leathers" or 1 valves, and other repairs, and Dr. Molner a heart can keep on pumping for a hundred years or more. A mechanical pump usually has two chambers, the upper one which lifts the water, and the lower one which is filled by the suction of each stroke. A heart has four chambers, connected to one another by valves. If, In a mechanical pump; there is a leak so that water can flow Jreely from one chamber into the other, you can do a lot of pumping yet not get much water. Likewise, if the valve won't close tight, or if the same valve won't'open far enough, the pump's efficiency will be low. It may pump, but not very well. Or it may not pump at all. It depends on the degree to which the valve is impaired. Or if, in the pipe running down into the ground, there is a place that is partly clogged, and will let only a little water through, you can pump pretty hard yet not get much in the way of results. All of these things are quite comparable to a "congenital heart." There may be a hole (large or small) in the wall which separates one chamber from another. This is an "interventricular defect" or an "inter- artrial defect," depending on which chambers are involved. A valve may be too small, or for some other reason' not work properly. Or in some of the blood vessels which are part of the heart's efficient system, sometimes there is an extra connection which short-circuits the blood flow, so a given amount of blood has to be pumped several times instead of just once. Is a congenital heart serious? It depends on whether it is a big or little flaw. Small flaws may not be detected at all, or not until.later in life, and merely interfere with maximum efficiency. Others are critical and must be repaired soon or not at all. I noted in the papers last winter an account of a young man — a boxer — who found he had a congenital heart that needed repairing; He. had an operation on it. He not only came through nicely, but he has since gone back to professional boxing! A congenital heart sometimes should be left alone, sometimes must be repaired surgically, sometimes is in the in-between region of "maybe," and sometimes — more and more often these days — is to be counted as one which probably \vill be very much improved by surgery. There are thousands of American children (some grown and married by now) who have had operations for congenital hearts. In any particular case, your own doctor will have to decide what to do. But don't lose hope at the words "congenital heart." Find out about the case. Modern tests can give you a firm answer. NOTE TO MRS. G.J.S.: We don't know why some children are born with cleft palate, any more than we know why some have six fingers or why some are geniuses. NOTE TO MRS. P.S.: Milk certainly never caused diabetes! Your eating habits, as you describe them, sound very good. Why suffer from sinus trouble? Much can be done to help you, and it is explained in my booklet, "You Can Stop Sinus Trouble."

By HAL BOYLE NEW VORK (AP) ~ It is "hard for a dog lover tq learn to live with a cat in the house. But it can be done—particularly if you have a small daughter who insists on having a cat as a pet It has been some six months since Lady Dottie, a tiny fur pawed black /and .white power house, came to our house to stay Now she is a large and formida ble powerhouse, and stomps around the place as if she paid the rent. The only one who has any rea authority over her is 'our daugh ter, Tracy; who is nearly six. She uses Lady Dottie as a pillow dancing partner and substitute sister. The cat has gone for so many rides in the baby buggy that, she now believes it is her own pri vate vehicle. We are even begin ning to refer to it as "the family Catillac." Between Lady Dottie and my self there is a strange and rather undefined relationship. As a lifelong dog-man I have always disliked cats, and been suspicious of cat-fond people, fig uring that any human being who preferred a cat to a dog mus' lave a hidden character defect o: some kind. Now I must confess to harbor ing a mixed feeling bordering on fondness for Lady Dottie. Part of it is based on pure gratitude. I had. heard the old wives' tale that cats at nigh would crawl up on your chest and breathe your breath before reached you, thus dooming you to death for lack of oxygen/ And 1 was afraid it might be true. To me cats were sneaky, treach erous, wily beasts who took everything they could get ant gave nothing in return. Why wouldn't they rob you of breath' For three months I slept with the bedroom door closed, to iso late me from the possibility o any such midnight feline assault Gradually, however, my secre superstitious panic abated as I realized Lady Dottie was too sens ible to try to rob me of my breath. She was too busy robbing my pocketbook for beef liver cloth and rubber toy mice and al the other niceties of a modern cat's way of life. Once I realized she had a vest ed interest in me to protect, I lost my dread of her. I noted one big difference be tween cats and dogs. A dog does you a favor by getting out of your way. A cat seems to have the idea that it is doing you a favor by getting in your way. Lady Dottie, although her fam ily tree disappears into the near est alley, is as supremely proud and sure of herself as an Egyp tian queen. When she decides to honor you by running up agains your legs, you are expected to pause and be flattered, even though at the moment you may DC trying to carry a message to Garcia.
