OTTAWA HERALD Wtdnwday. May IS, 1959 Editorials Group Action , Ov«r coffee the other day an QUawan recalled to Mf P repent visit to Washington. He Wai most impressed by the new Senate of- licit) building, voted a decade ago, built at a cost of |2* million and inhabited by the Senators after Easter vacation. "Il'i plash,*' our friend said. "The hearing rooms are big and beautiful. The public ad<Jre« system is marvelous." His comments rung a bell. We dug through the waste basket at the office and came up with a report put out by a national engineering magazine. According to this magazine. . . the wire services carried a short story about it. . . the building has numerous glaring errors. Sure, it's a gleaming, 7-story structure of Vermont marble with big rooms, bronze fixtures and -walnut doors. But. , . Poor soundproofing and louvered doors result In little privacy for senators. The driveway to the underground garage wasn't designed for underslung, late model cars. They drag. To remedy this, not only must the drives be rebuilt but the automatic ice-melting system must be changed. Another problem is that in the hearing rooms the Senators sit too far from the witnesses. When photographers take pictures of witnesses at hearings, the Senators are left out. This is important. . . in election years. Elevators are slow in responding to urgent senatorial buzzing. The floors are slick and have been covered with $150,000 of carpeting. Desks are too low-slung for long-legged secretaries. And so the list goes op and on. Red-faced Senators have only themselves to blame. The building was designed and constructed under supervision of a group of Senators picked by the Senate. This expensive bit of Americana reminds us of that old joke, about a camel. , . a horse put together by a committee. This And That The announcer on a small radio station we were listening to last night had a slip of the tongue. "We will now interrupt the commercials," he said, "to give you 60 seconds of news." Local traveler, back from New York, reports that if one has time to kill, a taxi is a pleasant way to get across town, but if one has an appointment to keep, he'd better walk. Things will be mighty quiet In Washington during the graduation season with all the senatorial Aspirants for President being out making commence- mend addresses. Moths, It Is reported, will eat $5 billion worth of clothing and other woolens this year. Which reminds us that the best moth insurance is to buy a suit with two pairs of pants. The compact ears scheduled for t h I s fall haven't been born yet but they already have been named. Corsair by General Motors, Falcon by Ford, and Valiant by Chrysler. The smaller the cajr, the more grandiloquent the name. Missouri taxes liquor at 80 cents a gallon and Kansaf at $1. Oklahoma is contemplating a tax of $2.30 in legalizing the sale. The bootleggers will benefit along with the state treasury. A ftrtune awaits the man who can perfect an egg yolk repellent necktie. Arthur Godfrey enjoys everyone's sincere synv pathy. He has had to learn humility such a hard way. Auld Lang Syne 25 Year* Ago John Laws of Princeton brought a large turkey egg to The Herald to be put on display. Floyd Warner suffered a severe burn on one hand when he accidentaly poured acid on it at the Warner plant. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs, Bernard Bcofield, 514 S. Ash. M Year* Ago A group of assorted dogs, accompanying families in moving vans, kicked up quite a fuss on Ottawa's Main Street. The town was being decorated for the G.A.R. convention and the dogs apparently were excited over the gaudy trimmings. 0. A. Thompson of The Herald ad composing department was ill with acute indigestion. F. B. Cargay of Baldwin, purchased the A. B. Collins second hand store at 122 S.

Dr. Molner "This year try to get the storm windows down and the screens up bsfore it's time to put the storm windows up again." Your Good Health By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: What is histoplasmosis of the lung, what causes it, and is there any cure?— MRS. A.H." Suppose we back into the answer and start talking about funguses — or fungi, if you prefer. One of my reference books points out that there are something like 10,000 known varieites of fungus, but only 30 or 40 of which can bother mankind's health. A fungus is a form of plant ife, but unlike most of t h e vegetable forms that are I familiar to us, it contains no i chlorophyll. While we don't un- Iderstand the whole process, if la plant has cholorphyll, it ap- I pears that it can manufacture jits own food from the materials (available to it. Without chlorophyll, it has to 'gather its food from some other living organism — or one that has been alive. For example, you've seen fungus, or "mold" on bread, or on dead trees, or what have you. As i said, few funguses can cause illness in people, but some can. Athlete's foot, ringworm and some others are, in fact, quite common. There are funguses, like those I just mentioned, which affect only the skin — and the hair and nails are, physiologically, part of the skin. That accounts for the sometimes stubborn fungus infections of the nails., for example. Some other funguses can find their way deeper into the body, and one of these is the fugus which causes histoplasmosis. In this case, the fungus causes spots on the lungs. For practical purposes, one of the most important problems is to distinguish such spots from those caused by tuberculosis. Skin tests, as well as a very careful study of the history of the case, often are necessary before you can decide definitely whether a spot is TB or histo- plasmosis. In earlier years, histoplasmosis was believed to be a rare and deadly disease. Now we know better. Indeed, medical tests now show that a great many people in the central states of the U.S. (this is, for whatever reason, the area in Which this disease is principally found) have had hisloplasmosis and recovered from it without •ver knowing, at the time, what they had. I don't, as a matter of fact, know of any cure that can be administered. It usually takes care of jtself in time. A curious sort of disease, isn't it? "Dear Dr. Molner: Is the blood type of a baby always the same as both the mother and father? Could the baby have the mother's type and not the father's? Can blood tests prove if a baby belongs to a certain person?—B.N." (1) No. (2) Yes. (3) No. In the ABO classifications (blood can be Type A, B, AB, or 0) if both parents have Type 0 the baby must have type 0. In every other combination of the parents, there is a possibility that the baby will have one or another. From two Type B's, the baby may be either B or 0. If one parent is type A and the other B, the baby may have any type. If the parents, respectively, as A and AB. or B and AB. or AB and AB, the baby may have any type except Type 0. In other words, blood tests can, sometimes, prove that a baby is not the child of two particular people; the tests can never prove positively that the baby is. NOTE TO MRS. H.F.: "Periodontal" means "surrounding the teeth" — hence periodontal disease concerns the gums and tooth sockets rather than the teeth themselves. NOTE TO MRS. R.C.: Don't you give your mother any vegetables or fruit — except applesauce? That's what I'm talking about when I keep harping on the value of a balanced diet! Bet wetting can be conquered! To learn how, write to me in c" 3 of Box 158, Dundee, 111., requesting a copy of my booklet, "Eneuresis — Ten Ways To Stopped Wetting." and enclosing a . large, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20c in coin to cover handling.

Running With The Gang Is Sport EDITOR'S NOTE-M«ny Americans believe that Juvenile de-i linquents are Just emotlpnally disturbed children. They're wrong, gays a panel of experts who took a long, hard look at the problem. This Is the second of three stories on their findings. By G. K. HODENFIELD AP Education Writer WASHINGTON (AP)-JuvenUe delinquency—sickness or sport? search report published this week —sportt Adventure and a way of life. The big majority of delinquents, according to six experts in the field, are essentially normal youngsters. They're just running with the gang and doing what comes naturally. The study commissioned by the National Education Assn., disclosed that only 25 per cent of the nation's juvenile delinquents demonstrate any degree of emo- Primarily it's sport, says a regional disturbance. And only a Here's A Plug For New Series On Television By CHARLES MERCER NEW YORK (AP) - Let's address this one to responsible ex- cutives in the television networks—ABC, CBS, NBC—with the hope that somebody will try '.o make a great viewing treat available to you, an individual viewer. My role is frankly that of pitchman. I'm trying to promote a TV series. It is "Theater For a Story," produced on tape by Robert Herridge for CBS films—an ndependent corporation which can sell its works to anyone. In the course of my job 1 see great many television shows, some of which never reach the home screen. But I've never viewed two finer half-hour TV >rograms than I just saw in a Manhattan projection room. The taped shows, produced by lerridge in the projected "Theater For a Story" series, are "A ,rip to Czardis," a drama, and Tumpeter Miles Davis making iis television debut in a laconic ialf-hour program of jazz. "A trip to Czardis" is a faith- r ul rendition of the 1932 0. Henry Memorial Award short story py Edwin Cranberry. A tale of innocence and helplessness in the face of tragedy, it concerns two soys in the Florida scrub pine country many years ago who travel to the town of Czardis with their mother and uncle to say goodby to their father before he is hanged. It is unlike anything you see these days in the way of half lour TV programs because it car ries you though almost unbearable emotional tensions to an Inevitable, honest tragic ending. The atmosphere of its time and place is created remarkably with simple, modified impressionistic techniques. If this drama ever lights up the home screen you will remember it for a long time. In the Miles Davis jazz show Herridge employs the same technique of the wonderful jazz program, still unsurpassed on tel evision, which he produced las year for the late ''Seven Lively Arts." He simply puts a group of top flight jazz musicians in a studio and moves cameras and micro phones among them. There's no talk; simply the purest, finest jazz you've ever heard. Even the tone deaf should be moved by Davis's trumpet. Astaire Would Return Hb "Acting" Emmy HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Fred Astaire, whose 1958 TV spectacu- ar danced qff with nine Emmys, wants to return his "best actor" award. But a spokesman^for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences says the award was won fairly by Astaire—and it is his. Astaire said through a spokesman be wanted to return the award because of confusion over lie "best actor" category. Some critics, including Ed Sullivan, cotv end the Emmy should have gone •or a dramatic instead of a dancing performance. Three Boys Saved By 5-Year-Old Girl WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (AP) —Three boys, between 5 and 6 locked themselves in an automo- jile trunk near a swimming pool party. Debbie Wilson, 5, heard their muffled weeping and went to Mrs. Harry Hemstalk, owner of the car and the pool. Debbie had trouble making her understand what was wrong. But her earnestness finally impressed the woman, who rushed ;o the car and released her son, Kip, Stephen Fredericka and Robert Perona. The parents then decided on a reward. That's why Debbie was eating ice cream and cake at intervals all day Tuesday. Texas Law Change To Aid Johnson AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) - Gov. Price Daniel signed into law Tuesday a bill to help Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tex) win the Democratic presidential nomination. The measure shifts party prima ries from July and August to May and June. It allows Johnson to run for re-election before trying for the nomination at the July 1960 Democratic National Convention few of these could be helped by psychiatric treatment—.the rest are either immune or allergic to it. The sjx authors of the report include a pediatrician, a crimin- oligist, a psychologist, a psychiatrist, a sociajogist and an authority on cultural anthropology. According to these experts, 85 per cent of all delinquents come from lower class families. As the experts drew their line, class status is largely a matter of family aspirations rather than personal possessions. The report set forth no hard and fast rules by which a family might be classified, but it did offer some guidelines. In the case of the lower class youngster, for instance: It is unlikely that his parents will belong to service or fraternal organizations. His family probably spends its income on present pleasures, rather than saj/ing for the future, He may quit school, or intend to quit, as soon as it's legally possible. He may use poor English, such as "ain't," "I seen him," pr "when he come in." He probably will tend to regard property—whether his own or the school's—as something to be used hard and worn out, rather than conserved. His attitude toward money probably will be "catch as catch can," and his way of life will re fleet a great reliance on fate or luck. In the case of the middle class youngster: His parents probably belong to service and fraternal groups. His older male relatives will generally wear suits and neckties on the job. His family will probably save ts money for future use. The youngster will do average or better work in school, or, ii he doesn't, he will worry about t. He will regard property a something to be maintained or mproved. His primary source of money will be a regular weekly or monthly allowance. His way of life will reflect i strong concern for the future and planning for the future. The survey team said there is considerable mixing and overlapping of the lower and middle lasses, The experts'didn't even efine an "upper clas?,'V .,.';• In the matter of mental health, e report found a big difference etween lower class 'and middle >s delinquents. Although the middle class produces only 16 per ent of all delinquents, two of very three of their number are nationally disturbed. In the low- class, the figure is about one ut of five. The youth most likely to {strike ut against school and society, he report said, is the lower class oungster who wants to raise his tatus but can't. The report breaks down the na- on's juvenile delinquents this Seventy per cent are normal, ower class youngsters and five er cent are normal middle class oungsters. Fifteen per cent are ower class youth with some Tonite Thru Saturday Keep Carpet Problems Small Today's small spot or spill on your new carpet, if neglected, becomes hard - to - remove soil tomorrow.
