Special Report Too Much Talk 'THERE IS TOO MUCH TALK today about the profits of business being 1 excessive. The critics of profits never mention the fact that government would be flat-busted with its excessive coat of operation, if it were not for profits to tax. The federal jrovem- ment runs billions in the red now. We can create « real depression if the anti-business talk keeps up and is reflected in action. Then wateh the public debt climb and the value of the dollar drop. It is generally conceded that a bank must have a healthy earning capacity. If it were to lend money at no interest it would be bankrupt. Industry is no different than a bank; if it produces goods and services at no profit or too little profit, it will go bankrupt. Government has no income except what it first takes from its citizens in taxes. Its solvency depends on fthe ability of its citizens to produce a surplus (profit) to tax. Don't Fence Me In A WESTERN KANSAN need only to observe life in a metropolitan city for a few days to gain more appreciation for the wide open spaces. While there is much to see and do in the big cities, there's also a feeling of despair which comes from seeing the frenzied masses in their hurry to work, to eat, to home and to live. Many city dwellers live in a jungle of human animals, where the race for survival is hectic and constant. Missing in the concrete canyons of downtown sections are the friendly smiles, words of greeting and waves of recognition we get in a town such as Garden City. Metropolitan traffic moves at dangerous speeds, with tense drivers whipping their cars through the maze of moving traffic — constantly trying to out-maneuver a timid soul out of his traffic lane or parking spot up the street. While driving, you either join 'em or lose out. It's easy to see why a driver who uses his own transportation to go to work downtown in the big city will arrive home in the evening ready to beat his wife and curse his children. But we must admit to some bright spots in a country boy's reception in the metropolis. A taxi driver will give some helpful hints in how to get around, or a cop on the corner will take time to give out with some friendly advice. Then there's a waiter, who spots a Kansas hayseed but treats you as though you were a steady patron and actually understood the menu. The big city is a great place to visit. But for real living, give us a community where there's room to stretch out and breathe the unpolluted air of the un- 1 cluttered spaces. Hal Boyle Soys; Office Grapevine Said Essential Ribicoff Launches His Campaign in Connecticut By RELMAN MORIN ' HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Abraham Ribicoff recently returned to Richard Phair's drug , store in Canaan, Conn., shook some hands, sipped a soft drink, and thus officially launched his newest political venture. "I'm superstitious," he said, "and that store has been a lucky starting point in my other campaigns." This time, Ribicoff is the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate. If he wins, he will return to Washington six months after resigning as secretary of health, education and welfare in President Kennedy's Cabinet. Before that, he was elected to two terms as governor of Connecticut. Consequently, he is better known around the state than his Republican opponent, Rep. Horace Seely-Brown Jr., a congressman for 12 -years. \ "'My problem," Seely-Brown says candidly, "is to become known." ThU queition, the relative degrees of recognition by the voters, seems to be the only real factor in the electron. Speeches about issues, and political dueling do not appear to have people on the edge of their seats. ' The pace stepped up a bit this week. President Kennedy and former President Dwight D.

RYAN AP Special Correspondent SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) —Elements in the Cuban militia and what is left of the old revolutionary 26th of July Movement are ready to take to the hills and fight Fidel Castro's Communist regime, Cuban exile sources here declare. But these sources add that the Internal resistance, 'Which they call the only hope for Cuba's liberation from communism, is being hampered by U.S. actions. Fidel Castro, who recently made a hush-hush tour of Cuba's interior, is reported in dread of his own former comrades-in-arms in the old 26th of July army. Mass meetings of "defem j committees" are being held all over Cuba. The committees are part of a Communist-style, block-by j block spy system. Cuba's economic troubles under communism have tended also to arouse disaffection even in the militia. This has so worried the regime, according to available information, that militia members get little ammunition, and their arms and bullets ar e taken from them at the end of each tour of duty. One exile leader, Manolo Ray, urges that the United States make it as clear as possible to people inside Cuba that the fight is only against communism and that the United States is on the side of any underground resistance that fights the Red regime. . Ray, who claims reliable contacts with the elements of resistance inside Cuba, fought for Castro in the revolution, which overthrew the Fulgencio Batista dictatorship and' became Castro's first public works minister. He fled when the regime veered sharply to communism. The ex-minister says he believes strategic blunders in the United States have hampered internal Cuban resistance. One such blunder, he asserts, has been creation of the impression that th e United States supports any and all Cuban exile.-. Hatred of the old Batista regime persists in Cuba, despite present woes. H e says he feels that 26th of July army men who might take off for the hills hesitate for fear that former Batista people might be among those who would move in from the United States and take over after the fall of the Castro regime. They fear, he says, they would lose their own heads in that event. Ray says he is sure that if resources were made available to the internal resistance—men are still fighting in the Escj-nrbray hills—it could be funneled to anti- Castro forces and would pose a serious threat to the regime. kie "mv father telling ' Garden City Telegram Published Dally Except Sunday and Five Holidays Yearly by The Telegram Publish!ns Company at 177 Bast Chestnut Isn't it strange that you I should be sitting here to- discussing the disposition of ... island?"

The bottom fell out of the formula pitcher that had served us for eight years and three babies. When the pitcher wasn't in use for baby formula, it was just rijrht for juice, gelatin and Kool-Aid mixing-. SPEAKING of baby formula reminds us that Jack Curtis wondered out loud to us a few days ago how many hours of our life we'd "wasted" warming milk for babies. It was time wasted, he explained, ac- cordinp to an article in Newsweek Magn- zine which quoted an eminent baby specialist. This expert, after due experimentation, says that babies do just as well on unwarmed milk — that it makes no difference to them if it's a warm bottle or one straight from the refrigerator. So rack me up for a couple thousand wasted hours. We are a bottle warmer of the old school for sure. Our present baby at 16 months gets her milk warmed and lier bottle held for her three times a day.

Eisenhower spoke Monday in Hartford. Two days later, Kennedy stumped for the Democratic ticket in Stratford, Waterbury and, New Haven, all important industrial areas. The only issue that strikes ob-; vious fire among the voters is the question of health assistance for the aged. Ribicoff, explaining the bill he favors, has been getting reactions that approximate an ovation. Seery-Brown also says, "We must do more for people in the field of health." But he opposes the King-Anderson bill. Meanwhile, he has been trying to pin the label, "on-and-off Ribi- coff" on his opponent. This is a reference to the fact that Ribi- coff left the governor's office to become welfare secretary and then left that office to run for the Senate. "What does he really want?" Seely-Brown asks. Ribicoff's answer is that he wants to have a voice and a vote on the floor of the Senate. Ribicoff is not "running scared." He looks relaxed and confident, but he put s in lon^ days campaigning. In 1980, Kennedy carried Connfcticut by 92,000. Two years earlier, in his second gubernatorial election. Ri'bicoff won by a record plurality of 246,000. TO "become known," Seely- Brown has been going from door to door, passing out pot-holders, a technique he has used for years in his own congressional district. His name is lettered on one side, with the rest of the GOP ticket on the other. The GOP candidate for governor, John Alsop, also is relatively unknown, politically. He is president of the Mutual Insurance Co, of Hartford, and the brother of Joseph and Stewart Alsop, writers. He opposes Gov. John M. Dempsey, a native-born Irishman, who i s completing Ribicoff's term in office. U.S. Urges Flu Vaccination Send questions to Sci«nc« Editors. P. 0. Box 1174, Louisvillo 1, KJT. * Inheritance of Allergy Q. I have been dating a boy who has asthma: I suffer from hay fetter. If tee get married would our children have asthma and/or hay fever? A. Parents with one or morq allergic disease are likely to have children with some type of allergy. According to some authorities, about 50 percent of children, would develop allergy if one parent was affected and 75 percent if both parents were allergic. The problem, however, isn't so serious because modern medical care can do wonders in the control of allergic disease. Anticipated further medical advances make allergies even less formidable in the future. Q. Ts dslan flu likely to strike again thix year? Is the flu vaccine effective? A. According to the U. S. Public Health Service, recent and past patterns of influenza A2 (known -'as the Asian strain) indicate that this type of influenza is due in. the United States again this fall and winter. Outbreaks will probably occur in all parts of this country and possibly in Canada. The vaccine is quite effective. In fact, the Public Health Service encourages use of the vaccine and has sought the cooperations of physicians, medical authorities, and voluntary health agencies in planning extensive vaccination campaigns. Bunions Q. I have bunions on both feet. Would an operation help and does it take long to recover? Would I be able to lake long walks and dance? A. Operation for bunions is not especially serious but it does require an experienced surgeon for best results. Plenty.,, of time should be allowed for healing. If you follow the doctor's advice you should be happy with the results. Dispensing prescribed medicine is what we do best ... do promptly . . . anil do at reasonable cost.
