TOB BACWB JOOTNAiynMES Racine, Wisconsin Sunday, January 7, 1962 They Haven't Gone After It! ' Sen. \V)lliam Proxmire has made a siuAcv I 'f Wisronsin cities and been "ph(i( koil li>- tlio finding tliat none of the mofliiiiii 111- <mall communities has rc- (cni'il any federal urban aid grants. Prox- iTiilT .-.1 m nnii ho W r ~ !h;ii his contacts with city offi- !ir,i!( that they want these grants, I'i .inirs the federal program for '.1 rxtond to these smaller com- lily agree witli the Wisconsin ".uil urban redevelopment should I be extended to communities of ..MO,,' 100.000 and .smaller. They have :i ;,n ; urban problems, too, and they dif- i. r !;om the metropolitan cities only in I .r 'lpMrtion. They have ancient housing, l-,'i:,'iit, small-scale slums, choking traffic urban facilities that arc outdated for iJiejr needs; they have residential arras are deteriorating and commercial areas that have deteriorated. We further .igree that programs of federal aid should move into these communities, * * * liut we mosi, en-ij>hatifii!ly do not agree with the senator that it is the fault of the federal program alone that this has not happened. A major part of the responsibility lies with the smaller city governments; the \ery mayors, managers and city councils (he senator has survey (>d. .\Ia \be thev want help with their urban pi 'oblcms, but far too few of them seem to be dninf,' an>thing about getting it, or in dc\ (lopm;^ jM 'ogranis of their own which could be su[)pl('mented with ff.'d- eral aid. .Milwaukee and .\Iadi.-^on, Pro.xmii'e has noted, are the only cities in Wisconsin with fully developed urban renewal programs under the federal plan. What other cities, wc wonder, have planned for this kind of program and worked for it? The fact is that too few city governments aiifl the people thoy represent really :-:ce thf! developing prf)bloms under I heir own noses or have any concrete idea ,ibou( \v}i:ti. Ui do about, them. I{a( iiie h,i • put a verv cautious toe into the pond of urban redevelopment under the Icijeral iau'. W'itli infinite caiilion. the city government agreed to become qualified under one title of the law— and that after very slow revision of its city ordinances—and obtained'a few mortgage guarantees as a result. The city government approved, this small participation only after being as.sured that it would amount to little more than a re- vi.-ion of codes, and nothing like public housing, ianri-ciearance programs or anything similar was involved. * * * P/ut the city has made no j)Ians to be included in any kind of urban redevelopment beyond its present qualification, either through a home-grown program or federal or state aid. The need in Racine, and in many other century-old communities like it, is for some type of planned redevelopment in the centi-al section. Green Bay is an example of a community that is planning this type of redevelopment. I-'ederal aid is not (he sole ingredient of this type of redevelopment, but it could jjrove to be a useful tool in .some aspects of a renewal plan. Similarly, the slate ha.s legal tools ai-ailable to its cities for activating these plans; Milwavikce is presently using a combination of both state and federal laws to effect major changes in its downtown .section. Hut local leadership and local initiative are nece.s.sary to blend these tools into a working plan, and it must come from local government as well as interested citi/.cns and property owners. Even the most generous .systems of outside aid will only work when local leadership makes them work. * * * Urban redevelopment cannot be confined to the big cities if it is going to be meaningful to the whole nation, and no federal plan can expect to work successfully within those limits. Insofar as the federal government has failed to extend these plans to the smaller and medium- ."-izet eral niiicti can \>v rlone for tlio,se communities which arc not willing to heli^ theniscUes. A BIT FRAZZUD — BUT SHE'S ALL W£Y£ GOT.' W. W. Bauer, M.D. Foods Contain Vitamins and Other Values, Too Dr. Bauer U. N. Bonds Could Pay Big Interest' Dear Dr. Bauer: Can one take vitamin A capsules freely without the chance of side effects? I have some here con taining 25,000 U.S.P. Units and the dose says one capsule a day. I am continuously bothered with flaky eyebrows and nose and have tried treatments prescribed locally, to no avail E.Z.P., Nebraska. Answer: Vitamin A is indeed available for the buying, in many sources too little appreciated by the super- vitamin-conscious public — in butter for example, oleomargarine, green and red vegetables, cream, cheese, fish, liver, eggs. Of course, if one prefers pills, that is his privilege. The pills, of course, do not provide the other nutrients also contained in the vitamin-bearing foods, which are equally essential for health. Dear Dr. Bauer: I am suffering what I call sinus headache. It starts above the left eye and behind the eye, over a portion of the left side of the head. There is soreness in the gland or muscle in the * * * * * * Failure to Pay Share Could Embarrass Russ which of the nasal sinuses he attributes it. Or does he think' it might be a .tension headache, or a migraine, or one due to your teeth, to an infection somewhere, to your blood pressure, or to any other of a myriad causes o;f headaches? There is no way to obtain relief, except possibly temporarily, without finding the cause and overcoming that. And that's why I think you, too, should like to know what your doctor calls your headache, and what HE proposes to do about it. Dear Dr. Bauer: I had a cold or flu or something, and now I have lost my sense of smell and taste. I can taste sour, sweet and salt, but no flavors. My doctor says there is nothing to do but. wait until it comes back, and' he seems to think it will. Should I consult a specialist; there is none where I live and the nearest city is quite a way off? Mrs. J.S.M., Kansas. Answer: Loss of smell following a cold is not uncommon, and since the finer flavors are perceived mainly through smell rather than taste, these will be lost too. Usually the sense of smell returns, but not always. There is little that a doctor can do to hasten this process, 'so it is in order for you qither left side of the neck and! to wait and see, or consult across the shoulder. Is therela specialist, whichever you iany way I can obtain per- 1 prefer, manent relief? I have had my UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.— The United Nation's $200 million bond issue is likely to precipitate something approaching a world-wide "great debate" on the UN— its authority, its functions, and its financing.
