Tribune (Newspaper) - September 8, 1976, Tipton, Indiana PAGE 2 Tipton Tribune Wednesday, Septembers. 1976Our opinionA parent's prayer ' Dear World: Today my son starts to school. It is going to be cold and strange to him fdr a while. Please treat him gently. You see, up to now, he has been the king of therqost. You know, bpss of the backyard. His mother^ has always been there to bind up his wounds and to soothe his feelings. But now things are not going to be like that. That is part of growing up. This morning he is going to \\plk down the front steps, wave his hand, and start on a whole new adventure...an adventure which will last for years, take him across continents, may include wars, tragedy and no doubt sorrow. To live ‘out beyond his backyard will take faith, love = and a great deal more courage than he knows. So what I am asking world, is that you take him by his youngrhaad, and. _ teach him the things he will have to know, but as you teach ^ him, be gentle if you can. He will have to learn that all men are not just, honest or true. But let him learn that for every scoundrel he meets, he will also meet the quiet heroes. Let him know that for every crooked politician there is also a dedicated leader. Show him that for every man who will call him enemy, there are those who will call him friend. It will take some time, I know, but, world, will you teach him that a nickel earned is of far more value than a dollar found and also the lesson that to lose is a part of life, but let him enjoy winning, and being a winner? Steer him away from envy if you can, and teach him the secret of quiet laughter. Let him learn early that the bullies are the easiest people to lick. Let him discover the wonder of books blit also give him the quiet time to ponder the poetry of a bird in the sky, bees in the sun, and the sheer mystery of flowers on a green hill. In school, world, teach him it is far more honorable to fail than to cheat and also let him have faith in his own ideas, even if everyone tells him they are wrong. Let him be gentle with gentle people and tough with the hard people. Try to give my son the strength not to follow the crowd when everyone else is getting on the bandwagon...to listen po all men, but to filter all he hears on a screen of truth and how that truth will affect others. World, teach him the hard lesson of how to laugh when he is sad, and that there is no shame in tears, that there can be glory in failure if he is Honest, and despair in success if he is dj^shonest. Help him to scoff at cynics, and to beware of too much sweetness. Teach him to sell his brawn and brains tp the highest bidders but to nevef^put a price tag on his heart and soul. Teach him to close his ears to the howling mob...and to stand and fight if he believes his cause is right. Treat him gently, world, but do not coddle him, but as he takes his blows may he know that the test of fire makes fine steel. Let him have the courage to be impatient with wrong and injustice ..but to also have the patience to be thoughtful with the weak World wherever this path takes him he has started down this morning, teach him to have sublime faith in himself, because then he can believe in mankind I know this is a big order, but see whát you can do. He is such a nice little guy,...my son.Border problem As Mexico’s President Luis ” Echeverria said in Tijuana recently, the problem of illegal immigration from Mexico into the United States must be faced by both countries. It is not a problem for the LTnited States alone. It can only be solved by joint action. It must be No. 1 on the list of border problems to be considered by Echeverria’s successor, Jose Lopez Portillo, and the president of the United States to be elected in November. ^ The problem has two faces. The United States sees-rt-in-terms of an estimated five million illegal Mexicans in the Unite,d States who compete successfully with the most disadvantaged of the American labor force, tending to keep low-level wages depressed and poor working conditions from being improved. Mexico sees the problem of illegal immigration as a problem of controllings the. 'growth of the Mexican population and increasing the number of jobs for Mexicans in Mexico.Write on By VIRGIL PINKLEY The Soviet navy continues to expand rapidly and prowl the seven oceans and seas. ....... Every available authoritative source stresses that the Russian navy con' tinues to build faster than ours. At the same time, the Soviets are demanding various disarmament* prcgx)sais. This includes especially those barring our new weapons development, particularly cruise missiles. Moscow is now carrying on a worldwide campaign denouncing new Western estimates of Soviet military spending. In typical fashion the Soviets do not discuss their own military expenditures. An important study by the Library of Congress reveals mammoth Soviet gains in military capacities as against the United States. The study states that military expenditures in real terms have declined in the United States by 30 percent between 1968and 1976. h In 1970, Mexico’s labor force totaled 16 million and by 1985 it is expected to reach 28 million. Unemployments or underemployment, reportedly affects 50 per cent or more of the work force. It will require a phenomenal rate of economic growth to keep pace and, provide jobs for Mexico’s booming labor force. The alternative for many unemployed Mexican workers is obvious. It is in the interest of this country to offer Mexico full cooperation in trade and aid to help build up the Mexican economy. Then we may perhaps be able to avoid an inundation of cheap Mexican labor without straining our relations with Mexico.

The Russians have developed a new procedure for refueling their submarines at sea, which reduces consider ably. the. need for shpre facilities. iThis program is being employed especially in the Indian Ocean. Earlier this year the Soviets began dropping large containers of jellified fuel from surface vessels into shallow ocean waters. The submarines are guided to thsse fuel dumps*by electrically equipped markers 100 feet below the water’s surface. A real show of force is staged frequently oy the Soviets in the Mediterranean. After some of its recent maneuvers , Rear Adm. Eugene J. Carroll, com-mahding officer of the U.S: 6th Fleet’s task force 60, saidi ‘Tt is showing fífst-dass performance. Their ships are excellent sea- keepers. By this I mean that they operate well under adverse conditions. They are heavily armed pound for pound, more, so than U.S. ships.” " MOM,BiLLViHBewapieceoFaiRaTMe/" Jim Bishop Love’s most tragic valentine is venereal disease. It punishes brief lovers. Long after they have repented, it can leave its mark on their children. Doctors thought they could wipe it out 25 years ago with the discovery of penicillin and the sulfonamides. We are in an age not so much of sexual freedom as sexual license. The young men and women most anxious to use the new license are most prone to be victims of syphilis, gonorrhea, chancroid and lymphogranuloma. ' . The shame has been taken away fi|^ sexual promiscuity. There should be no shame in reporting to a physician for an examination for venereal disease. The infections are so insidious that frequently no symptoms are observed. CASES AND CARRIERS Last year there were an estimated 3 million males and females with gonorrhea. There were" almost 100,000 cases of syphilis. The U.S. Public Health Service states that there are 800,000 American women with infectious gonorrhea who are untreated carriers. Some believe that gonorrhea now ranks second to the common cold. The germ, a gram- negative called Neiss^ia gonorrhoeae,'is dehCl|te. It dies at once if exposed thrives and multiplies on a moist mucosal surface. The germ requires an incubation period of from three to seven days, although it has been known to lie dormant in women for one year. In males, an infection of the urethra produces intolerable burning. In women, it is common to be asymptomatic. ' rOf all diseases, syphilis is the masked marvel. It is caused by a spiral germ -called Treponema pallidum which twists its way into penile and vaginal tissue. It causes no pain and, sometimes, no symptom. Coipmonly, it causes a sore called a chancre. In time, it opens like a flowered ulcer. Without medical help, the chancre will disappear, causing the victim to believe he has no problem. Syphilis moves on to a secondary stage, which is also without symptom. In the third, or tertiary stage, it attacks the central nervous system, destroying the mind one step at a time. Paresis is finis, the end, for innocent women and overly confident young men. The problem indeed centers on the young, those who can least afford to gamble with the future. After sexual contact, each one is certain that if he feels all right his health is unimpaired: That, in a breath, is the mask of syphilis, h Venereal, as a word, is taken from' | Venus, the goddess of love. Any disease i transmuted exclusively by sexual contact is venereal. Others, less com-~ mon, are called lymphopathia venereum, chancroid and granuloma 'inguinale. * In almost all cases, the female has fewer symptoms of illness and, over the years, suffers more than the male. It can cause her to be sterile. It can also saddle her with a blind infant. Chancroid is a common disease which emerges as a pimple on the genitalia from two to 14 days after intercourse.' Pus forms. After that, tissue begins to The Worry Clinic BY GEORGE W. CRANE Lois deserted her loving husband and baby, to run away with a former boy friend. But notice what happened. And then use the booklet below to stop runaway wives! CASE H- 687: Lois L., aged 22, is a runaway wife. “Dr. Crane,” her husband told me, “Lois and I got married when we were only 18. “But she was always rather flirtatious, both with our high school classmates and also after the wedding. “We had a baby girl the first year and she apparently disliked ha ving to stay at home to look after it. “So she would coax a neighbor woman to babysit while Lois ran around with a former boy friend. “A few weeks ago, she deserted our baby girl and me, as she fled to another state with this other guy. “But he apparently got tired of her and beat her up a couple of times, so she telephoned me to drive down there and get her. “My parents thought I was a dope for doing so, but I still loved her and brought her back home. “But do you suppose she will be content to stay at home very long? ’ ’ RUNAWAY WIVES The Tracer Company of America, located in New York, reports that such runaway wives now outnumber husbands who have fled their mates I And the reasons are not due primarily to wife-beating. Moreover, such wives often desert their young children, leaving them for their husbands or their grandparents. “Dr. Crane,” you may ask, “why do women show such disregard for their young sons and daughters, as well as their husbands?” Here are a few of the major causes for runaway wives: (1) They feel bored with household routine and also wish to escape responsibility. This is especially true of teenage wives who haven’t worked for a year or so before marriage. For girls who were employed before marriage have usually hiecome better educated to assume responsibility. (2) Many of these wives even leave a trail so their husbands can soon locate them and coax them back. For they miss the courtship attentions after being married a year and with a baby to look after. For the attention of grandparents and hubby usually shifts away from the young wife to focus on the new infant. Many such wives then feel “jilted” Naval records of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization show that in 1964 the Soviets registered only 1,800 “ship-days” in the Mediterranean to 18,000 for the 6th Fleet. Subsequently, the Russian Black Sea fleet’s 5th or Mediterranean squadron, really a complete fleet from a Western viewpoint, since 1973 has logged better than 20,000 ship- days a year. This compares with 15,000 for the U.S. 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean in" 1974. Recently, a large number of Soviet ships and submarines have been observed in New Zealand waters. Prime Minister Robert D. Muldoon has become increasingly nervous about the number of Russian ships and submarines A spotted by his naval and aerial forces. He says that the average daily Soviet naval presence last year in the Indian Ocean was 22 ships, compared with fewer than 10 American ships. He also has emphasized the construction of Soviet naval bases in Somalia and at Umm Qasr, Iraq, on the Persian Gulf. Muldoon lists the number of Soviet submarines spotted in the Pacific Ocean as larger than those of U.S. submarines. Another development which worries the Pentagon is the build- up of Soviet military forces on the Kola peninsula, which is near Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. It is reported that the Soviets have between 150 and 173 submarines in the Kola peninsula region. Many of them die. One ulcer follows another. For anyone who enjoys feeling clean, it’s a dirty disease. The granulomas come in two sizes. One is lymphogranuloma venereum, an infection which, in families of bacteria, resembles parrot fever and trachoma. It starts by inflaming the lymph nodes below the pelvis and around the rectum. Untreated, it will infect the genitals and anus. It causes fistulas and scar tissue and debilitates its victims. SPREAD BY JET The last of the common venereals, granuloma inguinale, is a relatively painless disease and a slowly developing infection. In time, it will cause ulcers and scar tissue in the area of the genitalia. A century ago, it was considered to be a disease of the tropics, but jet travel and sexual freedom have spread it around the world. This disease is dangerous because so much time elapses between sexual contact and the onset of symptoms that few victims connect the two events. Men and women tend to treat themselves with salves and unguents. If you assume that sex is secretive act, then so are its diseases. They wear many disguises. Sadly, they fool the young. A young man doesn’t mind spending $20 to take a girl to a tavern or a dance, but he sees no reason to consult his doctor about his sex life. Girls are worse. They equate a free sex'iife with liberty. They do not believe that a nice, good- looking boy could be a purveyor of death. He can be, without intending harm, and so can she. and subconsciously grow resentful at both their husband as well as the baby. (3) Most men have never learned the medico- psychological artistry required to satisfy a wife and inflate her ego in her boudoir cheesecake role. So send for the booklet “Sex Problems In Marriage,” enclosing a long stamped, return envelope, plus 25 cents, and you can nip in the bud your wife’s yen to desert you I — (4) Make your wife a partner in your work, your recreation and social life. Many men affront their wife and belittle her ego by acting as if she can’t understand the husband’s business problems. And they may have no mutual hobbies. (5) Join a church and become active together in its religious as well as social functions. For religion promotes unselfishness and the church’s social affairs should be your mutual hobby! The odds are 50 to 1 against runaway mates if you qualify under this No. 5 item!

It is understood that sohne 300 Soviet interceptor- reconnaissance aircraft are in the region plus two motorized infantry divisions, an amphibious regiment and large- scale border security patrols. The Soviets are said to have developed major oil reserves located off Norway and in the Barents Sea to the north. So while the Kremlin steps up its military operations in the Indian Ocean, the Mediterranean and along the borders of Turkey and Greece, it is feverishly m work developing similar forces on the northeastern flank of NATO and in and around Spain and Portugal; plus making aggressive fNews digestVICTORY PREDICTED INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—Indiana will go for Jimmy Carter Nov. 2 if “we can get people excited about the campaign,” Rosalynn Carter told an Indianapolis audience. The wife of the Democratic nominee for president is spending two days campaigning in Indiana for her husband. She visited Fort Wayne and Lafayette Tuesday before arriving in Indianapolis where she spent the night. Today she takes a walking tour on Monument Circle and then goes to Evansville. “We are ahead in the polls right now, but the power of the' incumbency is great,” Mrs. Carter told a welcoming crowd at the Indianapolis airport Tuesday. “We have a challenge ahead of us. That is why I wanted to come here and let you know how much we need you.”DISPUTE SETTLED INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—A labor dispute between migrant farm workers and Morgan Packing Co. has been settled, a spokesman for the Indiana ' Civil Rights Commission said Tuesday night. Migrant workers struck the firm’s tomato processing plant in Warren 10 days ago, protesting a lack of jobs for workers who had been recruited from Texas and Florida. Pat Conners, commission deputy director, said Morgan agreed to put 34 migrants to work immediately in the Warren plant and transport 17 others at company expense to the firm’s plant in Austin. Conners said, “Both sides agreed to drop all charges filed with various agencies.”ROBBER CAPTURED Q INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—Two customers of an.Indianapolis bank captured two robbery suspests Tuesday after a high-speed chase,-policesaid.

The Soviets have many things cooking on the many burners of their mammoth military machine, which is in being worldwide. In face of all this, there are still many who advocate that we further reduce our military strength and make certain that we are only the second nation militarily in the world, thereby exposing us to blackmail and even eventually jeopardizing the survival of our country. If we want to retain our freedoms and to perpetuate our institutions and ideals, we must be strong enough to deter an all-aut Soviet attack and have the ability to counterattack to the degree that war becomes unprofitable for Moscow.
