Michigan In Washington
By Esther Van Wagoner Tufty
WASHINGTON — Senator; Philip A. Hart has asked for an immediate hearing on the proposal for a Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore by the Senate subcommittee on Public Lands. Interior department’s economic study on proposal is now ready
Two Michigan Republicans (Chamberlain and Ford) were among the 12 GOP House Task Force on NATO Unity to lunch Nov. 15 with former President Eisenhower in Pettsburg. Congressman Chamberlain, a member of the Armed Services committee reported on the NATO parliamentarian conference recently held in Paris.
Congressman Elford Ceder-berg of Bay City has appealed to federal agencies to make greater use of fish in their eating establishments. It is hoped his plea will assist Great Lakes commercial fishermen hard hit by recent discovery of botulism in certain shipments of smoked fish.
Because Michigan was claimed by the Democrats by a narrow margin in the 1960 Presidential election, it will be in the spotlight when the Republican National committees stages a midwestern conference in St. Louis, Nov. 22-23. In Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota and Missouri it was found that “Republican organizational weakness in the big cities was responsible.”
Congressman August E Johansen, Battle Creek Republican. commenting on the increasing public criticism of the Congress said: “It is not my Congress ... not your Congress ... but the constitution's Congress.” So “the public must not confuse the actions of certain members or even the majority of the Congress with Congress ‘itself . . . that is not expenda-

Dear Doc: The word is passed, but don’t bet your little black bag that it will change anything. Mothers will continue to drag all the kids along because it s cheaper than hiring a sitter.
Dear Ann Landers: Am I
wrong to be angry?
My birthday was last Friday.
I had given my boy friend lots of hints — starting two months ago. We’ve done plenty of window shopping together so he knows what my taste is in jewelry, fur jackets and luggage. He has a good job and is not short of money.
The morning of my birthday I received a telegram saying: I “Sorry your birthday gift has not arrived. It has been ordered and is on the way. Please be patient. Love. Hubert.”
We had dinner together that evening and I thanked him for the message. He assured me 11 would love the present. Well, I this morning he phoned — all excited. The “gift” had arrived and he would bring it right over. i I almost went through the floor when he showed up at the front door with two baby hamsters in a cage.
I have no interest in hamsters. To me they look like alley rate. What shall I do?
Dear Robbed: Give the last of the Big Spenders his two hamsters back — before you have eight.
Dear Ann Landers: I'm sure I am not the only mother in this world who tries to hide her hurt feelings and pretends to all the world that her son or daughter is loving and considerate — when such is not the case
Is it too much to expect a prosperous married son to pick up the telephone and call his mother every two weeks? The night rate is 45 cents for a station call Am I selfish to want some small remembrance on Mother's Day and perhaps a telegram on my birthday?
The last time I spoke with my son I called him I told him it would be nice if he could alternate the calls. I would call him once a week and he could call me the next week He said. “Fine ” That was seven weeks ago. I haven't heard from him since. Why are children so inconsiderate? Shall I call him or what? Please advise
VERY SAD Dear Very Sad: Children who discard their parents like paper plates after a family picnic don’t get that way by accident There is always a reason for selfishness and indifference.
My advice is to leave the boy alone. He may remember to pick up the phone and call his mother when his own son gives him the deep-freeze treatment
Dear Ann Landers: I am a pediatrician who has been driven to the brink by mothers who have an appointment for one child and bring all four youngsters to the office simply because she has made no ar-i rangement for someone to stay with them.

To The Editor:
Junior Welfare League has been serving the Holland area for over thirty years. Wherever or whenever we see a need to aid the community and its children we try to act constructively-
Need is a relative dimension. I For some it is purely economic; ' for others it is spiritual, physical. or emotional. To us it means a pair of glasses, thirteen baby baths one morning at a migrant center, delighted faces at our puppet shows, or $12,000 of furnishings in the children s area of the library.
At the present time there is an educational need in our community going unfulfilled. This is something too enormous for us to handle. But it is something each parent of each child can do for them and all the other children in the community. A child grows into tomorrow with the tools he is given today. A good physical fitness program is needed on the elementary level now along with art, music, and languages. At the present time all the high school students (1,003) are served by one counselor whose purpose is to help them make that major step into the adult world — where to go and what to do. These are just a few of the more obvious areas of need in the Holland school system.
Won't you support the millage proposal in the Tuesday election? The challenges of tomorrow for these children are far greater than we can imagine today. Let us give them a helping hand.
Mrs. R. L. Dalman, President.
Junior Welfare League of Holland, Mich.

TM USEFUL AGAIN’
Not long ago there was a news picture of a man in his late 80s, long retired, who has taken to delivering papers. He offered this interesting comment when asked his reasons for thus interrupting his leisure: “I’m
It is axiomatic that as the proportionate number of aged men and women in our population increases, more and more effort will have to be made to provide the aged with useful, productive things to do. For as the case cited above illustrates, few of the aged relish constant idleness. Most of them would like to continue making some contribution to society; they are miserable when they feel rejected and useless.
This is particularly brought to mind by a Labor Department study of a trend toward a shorter span of active working life. It has been found that, for the first time in this century, the upward trend in the length of the working life has been reversed. A child born now can expect to spend somewhat less time in the work force than a child born as recently as 1950.
The work span is closing in at both ends. Earlier retirement cuts it off sooner than in the past, and longer schooling delays its start. It is retirement that makes the problem for those who, dropped from their jobs, face years or even decades of idleness. Many such persons not only work to “keep their hand in.” but need it badly for economic reasons.
The problem, bound to be heightened by increasing automation, has not yet been faced in any general way. A lot of thought will have to he given to training retired men and women for new tasks, and the present reluctance to employ the aged will have to be overcome. The alternative is economic, political and psychological trouble that could be for the most part avoided by sensible action.

New Childhood Illnesses Listed
DETROIT (UPI)—Five newly discovered childhood illnesses were charted and described to the opening session of the midwest sectional meeting of the College of Physicians here Thursday.
Dr. A. Martin Lerner, associate professor of Medicine at Wayne State University, said the diseases were found after a study of 146 cases involving mostly infants.
Each of the illnesses were causes by viruses and organisms associated with them, Lerner said.
According to Lerner the diseases have been found where doctors are “adequately prepared and equipped to search for the new eruptions.”
He said all were usually discovered by a rash and “average temperatures of 101 and 103 degrees” accompanied it.
The new diseases were listed as exanthem (rash); Boston exanthem; vesicular stomatitus or hand, foot and mouth disease; Coxsackie A-9 exanthem and coxackie B-5 exanthem.

A MATTER OF HABIT
Most clergymen are understandably inclined to approve of the church-going habit. They often recommend regular attendance at services of worship They tend — again, understandably — to think of those they see without fail on Sunday morning as their congregations’ best exemplars of belief and faith.
Often this judgment is accurate. All things considered, the church member who shows up regularly at worship services is more likely than others to be one to whom religious belief is a central part of life.
One could make a rather good case, ail the same, against regularity of church-going merely for the sake of regularity. 'I he problem is that when a thing becomes habitual there is always danger that less and less conscious volition and thought will be involved.
The point here made is not complicated. It is simply that worship should, of all activities, be the least perfunctory. Ideally, worship is a means of reaching out for contact with Deity. To the extent that the worshiper
