4—Saturday, Feb. 22, 1964 Red lands Daily Facts Story of a pocketknife When Washington nearly resigned By ROBERT COCHNAR ! George Washington almost! quit his command during Ihc brutal winter of 1777-78 at Valley Forge. Pennsylvania. If he had. the outcome of the! American Revolution and the; levered position Washington! holds in the history of his coun-j try might have been considerably different. And. according to at least one report of thai long winter, a pocketknife caused the Commander-in-Chief to change his mind. After bitter defeats by the! British at Brandywinc and Ger- manlown and unable to retreat to the British-held Philadelphia, the Continental armies had no alternative but to create a makeshift camp on the frozen hills of Valley Forge.

Bare feet made bloody prints in the snow. Large supplies of shoes, uni-j forms and food were stored not far away, but the inaction of the Continental Congress kept them from the armies. The Congress, in fact, had been driven out of Philadelphia by the British and cowered in York, Pa., about 100 miles away from Valley Forge.

Dr. Howard House, General Director of the Los Angeles Foundation of Otology, an affiliate of the University of Southern California, performed a "stapes mobilization - ' on my right ear. I'd known in general, that thousands out of seventeen million people in the U.S. who have hearing impairment, had been helped easily by the new surgical technique. Maybe it was easy but my recollection of two previous operations I had several years ago on the left ear, didn't come under my definition of "easy". It took me months to muster the courage to have another one. Operation was Quick I needn't have been so chicken. I entered the hospital the day before my surgical appointment, and I was scared.

Newly Perfected Operation The stapes mobilization operation technique has been perfected within the last five years and is successfully used for otoscelerosis, a bone closure. Other procedures have been . developed that reconstruct ears destroyed by infection. Perforated ear-drums can be healed by new skin grafting methods. Not all hearing losses are correctable surgically but there are many simple brave escapes for people who are being imprisoned in silence. A new research center of the Subcommittee on Noise is trying to determine ways to prevent hearing loss that occurs as a result of long noise exposure such as is encountered in the military and in numerous industries. If you notice yourself or those you love, acquiring the "pattern" of those who don't hear well — the too soft voice, the eyes that instinctively focus on the mouth, the tendency to irrelevancy in the conversation, make an appointment with an otologist and find out whether or not the impairment can be corrected surgically. It if can't find out how to get help through a program of rehabilitation which can be not only immeasureably helpful but curiously interesting. Don't be chicken.

He rejoices in Ihci " lhe b ' s numbc « art of political needle-work. | A clue to his "balance" in I politics may be taken from a survey of his home district. San Joaquin County is a picture of diversity, dominated by an agricultural interest but straining with urban, suburban, industrial and commercial growth. Registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans 5 to 3. In this kind of environment, Monagan was elected in 1960, re-elected in 1962 and is favored to repeat again this year. If he doesn't, of course, 1966 will become a moot point for him. But if hc does, there seems little doubt that he will assume more imposing influence in the Republican assault on the Statehouse two years hence. Monagan is not, by any measure, the only hope for "new blood" leadership in the GOP. There are half a dozen others — some much better known— in the Legislature. There are still more potential spearheads in Congress. Nobody knows thorn better than Monagan.
