The OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday) May 12, 1959 Laff-A-Day Editorials Which Side? The state Republican chairman, Sam Mellin- tfer, posed an interesting question in Ottawa the other day. He wants to know if the political education committee of the AFL-CIO is part and parcel of the Democratic Party. Or, he asks, is this Committee interested in electing officials who have the best interest of Kansas in mind? His question is well taken. From all appearances the Democratic party is that of the working man. As it has worked in the past, those candidates generally endorsed by the unions have been Democrats. There was a time when the Republicans didn't have to give a darn about the unions. Kansas was a non-union state. . . or the union members numbered so few their political power was insignificant. This isn't the case now. The labor unions. . . though they lost on the right to work issue in the last election. . . swing a potent stick in Kansas politics. The head of the AFL-CIO, Floyd Black, in answer to Mellinger, says the unions support "those fitted for the job." Usually those fitted can be defined as those favorable to labor. Mr. Black missed an excellent chance, to drive home an important point. He could have boldly stated that the unions are to the Democratic Party what the State Chamber of Commerce is to the Republican. Park Objections The aesthetic senses of a group of Ottawans appear to have been outraged. They have been stirred i by the announcement the State Highway Department would like to build a new maintenance building on land it already owns. This land, at the south edge of Ottawa, is now a roadside park. The highway department would like to use part of the park to put up a modern building to house machinery to service roads in this area. It promises to erect a sightly structure. . . to screen it from the rest of the part. It wants to know if any object. Well, some do. We believe their objections are out - weighed by practical considerations. The state already owns the land. Why buy more land. . . with our money. Too, the location is a natural, close to US59 and Interstate 35-50. It's a natural for the quick marshalling of men and machinery in case of flood or blizzard. Rather than object to a building which would never be an eyesore, wouldn't it be better for those opposed to turn their attentions to the many existing eyesores within our city and on its outskirts. This And That JPB An editor friend confides his hardest task is to compose a touching obituary for an advertiser whose bill was three months in arrears. "In dentures/' declared a speaker at a recent dentists' convention, "more than in anything else beauty is the result of harmonious correlation of irregularities." But beauty is only enamel deep and chew- ability is more to be desired. Wayne Morse is rowing with his Senate colleagues again, but that's not news. It's just the Morse code. In Oregon jail prisoners will be permitted to serve out fines at the rate of $5 a day instead of the present $2. Further, to combat inflation Oregon will probably substitute $25 fines for the present $10 ones. Now that Alaska is a state, it is only a matter of years before the first presidential candidate to be born in an igloo will present himself. Likely, though, the very thought of it will leave the voters cold. Speaking of igloos, do you know how they heat them during the coldest of the long Arctic nights? They pile in more Eskimos. In Miami Beach traffic law violators have the option of paying their fines with blood rather than money. If you're careless at the wheel, report to the bloodmobile. If laws you thwart, pump up a quart. The five grown children of a local woman gave her an unusual Mother's Day present this year.

KIni Future* S;mdlc«te>.liij., 2 "A secluded table for thirty-eight." Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molncr: How often should one have a check-up to make sure the heart is all right? Are there symptoms that belong only to heart trouble? If one is very nervous and the heart occasionally beats too fast, and the muscles around the heart twitch, causing a small amount of discomfort,, can you tell for sure that nerves are at fault or if something more serious is involved. Can a bad heart be inherited?—C.S." Lots of letters ask one or more [of these questions. Strictly [speaking there are no [symptoms — not the kind you can detect yourself — that belong only to heart (trouble. Some, however, are (highly suggestive of it, b u t [various heart tests (cardio- ] grams and others) can give you a positive answer. The crushing pain under the breast bone — the type that goes with coronary heart disease, and can be understood fully only by those who have experienced it — is usually a clue to that form of disease. But numerous other chest pains have nothing to do with it: they can b'' muscle pain, neuralgia, pleurisy or others. Shortness of breath is a common symptom, too, but it can be present with asthma, anemia, emphysema or some other disease of the lung. Swelling of the ankles is often seen with the same kind of heart disease, but it may also be due to varicose veins, kidney trouble, or liver trouble. The "fast heart" and the related discomfort that you mention may originate in some thyroid discrepancy, or excessive use of coffee or tea, or just from a state of anxiety. So how are you to know? As I said, the way to find out is to resort to some of the more complicated tests. This leads to another question you asked: How often should the heart be checked? It depends. The obese person, the one with high blood pressure, or the one who has had rheumatic fever should be checked rather frequently. Or, naturally if some heart condition has been noted, and your doctor wants to keep tabs on it. On the other hand, the person in sound health who feels good will be well served by a general check-up every year or two. It's a good feeling to leave the doctor's office with reassurance that everything is well. Some naturally apprehensive individuals, however, should be examined more often — as frequently, I should say, as is necessary to reassure themselves. As to "inheriting a bad heart," no. There is a thing as congenital heart disease, meaning that through some quirk of nature you are born with a flaw of some sort, just as you can be born with six toes or a cleft palate, but this is what I said it was — a quirk, not something you inherited. Other than that, heart disease is acquired. Infections (as rheumatic fever, syphilitic infection, nutritional disorders such as beri-beri, and some other diseases, common or uncommon) can indeed impair the heart. So can high blood pressure or hardening of the arteries, and a tendency to such things as these latter ones may be inherited. The tendency, I repeat, may be inherited, but not the heart disease itself. No, you do not "inherit a bad heart." "Dear Dr. Molner I read an article about restoring the memory of elderly people with injections of DNA and RNA. I would like your opinon.—MRS. T.I." Nobody's opinion yet means anything. This is an experimental matter. We'll all do best to ignore until — or if — it progresses to any practical point.

(AP) - Like birds which seasonally follow last year's routes along their estab- ished flyways, the custom cutters who follow the wheat harvest 'ran Texas to Canada have started their yearly migration. Actually, the big northward push of custom combine men and machines won't start until after he middle of this month. It will tit the Canadian border in mid- September. The movement on the highways hrough here for sometime now las been a pre-season migration southward of crews and machine- y from northern states to the Custom Wheat Cutters Getting Ready For Annual Push North point where the harvest begins every year in Texas. Television Programs Channel 4, NBC Channel 5-13, CBS Cnanne) 9, ABC TUESDAY Custom cutters from areas north >f here find it is more comfortable o do the pre-season work on their machines in the warmth of Texas n early May than it is to do it back home where it still is cold. The wheat harvest opens near Vernon, Tex., about 450 miles outh of Liberal. From this point, extending north, the wheat belt lares out east and west, wide ning over into New Mexico, cover^ ng most of Oklahoma, practical y all of Kansas and including eastern Colorado and part of Wy iming, ' The center of the belt runs up rorn Kansas through Nebraska and South and North Dakota, nar rowing again as it enters Canada. One of probably 20 custom cut ers who live in Liberal is Eldon .earning, 33. He is getting his two combines ready for his sixth sea on of following the wheat har vest from 1 Texas north. Learning grew up on a farm a ew miles southeast of here in Oklahoma. He has two rigs. A rig s a combine and a truck. Both ol his combines are self-propelled Gleaner Baldwins with 14-foot cutting bars.

The pickup becomes a fuel and service truck. The house trailer becomes a field kitchen. Learning points out one advantage enjoyed by custom cutters who live in the Liberal area. They are in the center of the maize country. If a custom cutter follows the wheat harvest only to the Canadian border, as Learning does, he can head for home in mid-September and arrive in time to catch the maize harvest which runs from the first killing frost until about the end of the year, depending on the weather. Some years, Learning has started on oats in Texas, switched to wheat for the big push north, then finished on more oats and barley and flax in the northern states. Then he has come back to south west Kansas and the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles for the maize cutting. It is more than 1,000 miles from Vernon, Tex., to Canada. It's warm in Texas and Oklahoma in May and June. It's hot when the custom cutters move acro'ss Kansas and Nebraska. By the time they g e t into the Dakotas it's cool enough to wear a coat part of the day. Some years they've even found it necessary to put anti-freeze in radiators of trucks and combine motors. Learning says the northward movement of the wheat harvest, to keep /up with the ripening of the grain, is about 10 miles a day. Most of his work is for the same wheat farmers year after year. I've Seen That Before To Be Summer TV Cry By CYNTHIA LOWRY NEW YORK (AP) — If, from now through September, you keep having the uncomfortable feeling that you've seen just about everything on your TV screen before, do not be alarmed: you have. This summer, even more than in previous years, warm weather is repeat, rerun time on the TV networks. If one is a creature of habit, there is no way to rniss a flood of Westerns in which you know in advance who rustled the cattle, of whodunits in which you know who triggered the fatal shot. There are, a few bright spots in the program schedules. For instance, the pleasant Chewy Show, summer replacement for Dinah Shore, will be back on Sunday nights with Janet Blair and John Raitt. The Ed Sullivan Show, as usual, continues through the summer. Teresa Brewer and Tony Bennett will star in "Almanac" on Saturday nights to fill in for Perry Como. But in place of Steve Allen there will be a bunch of film repeats of another season's "Suspicion" series. One of the more curious bits of summertime programming is the decision to replace Edward R. Murrow's "Person-to-Person" on Friday nights with Ted Mack and the Original Amateur Hour. The Arthur Murray Party, heretofore a perennial summer replacement is so firmly established now that it too will indulge in the repeat show activity. A musical show will take over for Lawrence Welk and his crew. Pat Boone's show will also be off for the summer. The panel and quiz shows will for the most part, stay on with new shows — live or tape. There are a few new film series which will run with new shows through :he summer largely because they laven't been around long enough :o store up enough repeats. Milton Berle and his Music Hall wil! move out to make room for £ British comedian named Dave King. *TAUY+ NOW Through W£D. ii DOC" DAPPER by Mack Electric A feller may miss a lot by living' in a small town — but th 1 things he hears more'n make up fer it.
