How to Succeed in Vote Biz -• My, haven't the gubernatorial candidates proliferated, though? Ray- niond Rebsamen, Frank Holt, Sam Boyce and Dale Alford threw hat* into ;;.» ring which already contained th« headgears of Brooka Hays, Kenneth . Sulcer, Jim Johnson and Winston ; Chandler. Over on the Republican aide, •'•one James T. Karam is being furtive : about something or other and of cours* •Winthrop Rockefeller's forces continue to investigate the Highway Depart- ment the hard way while waiting to ae* who'll aurvive the Democratic dog fight. Of the new faces, Mr. Rebsamen u a successful businessman, and that is eaying something of the man. He's also inclined toward independence and "that's saying even more. Mr. Boyce is a pleasant, bright young attorney. The fact that he managed to win out over forces of Gov. Orval Faubus in a struggle for control of the Arkansas Young Democrats may be laudable but is hardly recommendation for govrenor. Mr. Boyce however may have some refreshing ideas on S democracy in Arkansas and many will look forward to hearing them articulated. Dr. Alford evivdently is a thorougn- x ly pleasant fellow. Those people who know him, like him. He maintains a successful medical practice and his •willingness to leave tha security and ample rewards of such a practice to pursue a career as a public servant is admirable. Dr. Alford appears to be joining • Mr. Johnson and Gov. Faubus at that ••- leopard-spot-changing .way station a- long the road which leads to political nirvana. It was the fault of the press, Dr. Alford aaid between chbruse* of campaign songs at hit announcement party, which hung oh him the segra- gationist tag when he defeated Mr. Hays for tha Congress. Race, he said, will have no part in the campaign. This is true, unless some of Dr. Alford's opponents want to remind some voters of the race relation records of some of the aspirants. In fact, Dr. Alford said, any candidate or group in or out of the state who even mentions race "is doing a very distinct disservice to the state of Arkansas." We somehow feel confident that somewhere a man, «n hearing that, sighed, "Amen! Brother. Amen!" That man, of course, would be Mr. Johnson. So there you have the ground rules as laid down by Dr. Alford: Momma don't 'low no racial issue in here. It seems Dr. Alford may be more concerned about doing his state a disservice today than he was in 1957 when his friend, Orval E. Faubus was injecting the race issue into city, state, national and international politics. Where then were the voces crying for service? Well, those bygones happily are be- gone. No Arkansas political figure has proved this more conclusively than Governor Faubus, who has received heavy Negro voter endorsement in gpite of all the words and deeds of 1957. And the political rationale of this would go something like: To hell with ideology. Up welfare payments! Show Beat by Dick Kleiner Patty Duke hat changed since her marriage. She's no longer consumed with ambition. Quite the contrary — nowadays, she doesn't seem to care if she ever acts again. She canceled out on an ambitious summer stock schedule which had been lined up for her. She has one movie commitment left and she says that all she wants to do is fulfill that. After that? She has no plans and that's the way she wants it. At the moment, anyway. OFFICE IS HtRH. TRY NOT TO HIT ANY MORE CIVILIANS TVAAN NECESSARY.* Of Pentagon Should Tell The Truth BIOSSAT AND CROMLSY IN WASHINGTON US. Needs Stronger Political Program in South Viet Nam Even though the United States has lost a number of aircraft in various places in and around the Communiit bloc of nations, current policies prohibit our officiali from admitting the apparent truth that the planes were engaged in aerial reconnaissance missions. The simple facts of the matter are that this nation is and has been at war with Communism ever since the end of World War II. The hot "Cold War" is being fought with secret agents, marvelous electronic devices, pilotless and manned aircraft, photographic satellites and propaganda. Sometimes the war even includes a little ihooting such at in Korea, Viet Nam and the skies above and around the Red nations. The war is not onesided; Red satellites, submarines, spies and airplanes are actively engaged in probing our defense systems. Apparently this nation has never made a policy of announcing the destruction of any intruding aircraft and so no one ever hears about the incidents which may take place in the distant, frozen wastes of the North Pole. No on* should be fooled by the denials Issued by the Pentagon any time that is loses a plane, because the Communists are not fooled. They know that our defense agencies must gather every scrap of information available by any means at hand. If such information was not collected and used, this nation would be at a disadvantage in the wagnig of the so-called "Cold War." Actually, the Administration ought to be truthful with the American people and admit to them that it is doing the things required for the security of this nation. If this were done, the people could understand what is happening and support the necessary activities. Unfortunately, the public has not had the facts of the situation brought home to it, and as a result is sometimes confused as to what constitutes a legitimate policy or program in the current conflict it is probable that the people would unite more solidly behind our leaders as they seek to expand the blessings of freedom and protect this land.-Florida Times- Union, Jacksonville.

On the last trump lead his West opponent found himself unable to hold a high heart, three diamonds and two clubs and had to jettison the queen of clubs to give Jim his tenth and contract trick. Bill anticipated this possibility and shifted to the king of clubs. A low club was played from dummy whereupon Ginny made the best of her hand and signaled come on with her nine spot. Bill continued with the queen of clubs. South had to win that one in dummy but the squeeze was long gone. The best he could do was to run off his trumps but Bill hung on to his diamonds and our team won the board. By RAY CROMLEY Washington Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. WASHINGTON (NBA) The current political crisis in South Viet Nam illustrates a major failing of U. S. tactics. Mao Tse-tung of Red China and Ho Chi Minn of North Viet Nam have emphasized repeatedly that political - propaganda- economic warfare must parallel the militry effort. They have been successful with this technique in past guerrilla insurgencies. The United States is making a remarkable military effort. We have given great amounts of economic aid. We are spending millions on propaganda. But our political efforts have been weak and floundering. * * * Mao's first principle has been the organization of local Communist political cells and a swarm of subsidiary political- action groups. Members are trained continuously over a period of years. Even small groups thus exercise effective political power. When W. W. McGhee died in Lake Charles, La., last Febru- .ary, the bridge world lost one of its most lovable characters. When he lived In Chicago the players of that area thought enough of Bill to elect him president of the Mid-West' Conference. After he moved to Fort Worth we thought enough of him here to elect him president of the Texas Conference. He was everyone's friend but particularly elose to all the Ja- cobys and we will miss him more than anyone except his own family. Bill and Ginny McGhee won several tournaments with various Jacobys. Here is a hand from a team match. BUI held the West cards and opened the king of hearts against South'! four spade contract He continued with the tee and then stopped to think. Ginny had played deuce, trey of hearts, •o he knew Out South WM out 1 "I took a( it Ait war — I'm jutt a X*p «r two afeflrf ..-—. ,«f tfc teton Mftfr .— organized throughout South Viet Nam — in Viet Cong territory and in government territory. In some districts the Communist cells are very small in number. Even in their "weak" districts they are dangerous because of their training. The United States, by contrast, has not effectively stimulated the organization and growth of strong local political parties and political • action groups. Consider then the situation where North Viet Nam has sent in thousands of trained political organizers commited to communism — and where South Viet Nam has only a handful of free non - Communist organizers, largely untrained. If that situation is allowed to continue, it is easy to see the result. It's like putting trained men in any field against untrained amateurs. In this country, there is the feeling that somehow or other competent democratic political groups will form spontaneously. What actually forms spontaneously is what is happening now — competing special groups, Buddhist sects, Catholics, Cao Dai, Hoa Hao — with demonstrations which may or may not represent sizable groups of the These Communist groups are population and with hundreds of youngsters filling the ranks of the paraders. This internal conflict may in time grow into democracy if given the chance. But it may not have the chance. Viet Nam is a country at war. The skilled Communist opposition ii ruthless. There is a feeling that if we work closely with the central government we can successfully encourage that government to see to it that national representative political parties are formed. * * * But almost any central government in an emerging nation lacks the know-how to stimulate the growth of free political parties. This ability comes with long years of democratic experience. A strong core of the American colonists brought this traditon with them. Creating free political parties is an even more difficult thing to ask of a miltary central government, whose members are inexperienced in democratic processes, however worthy their intentions may he. There are ways hi which this political base can be created. The Vietnamese, when and where given the training and opportunity, have shown themselves able to vote intelligently and locally to govern themselves well. But the United States is going to have to develop some techniques that will effectively aid this development — or our military and economic efforts will be in vain. I saw Bill Dana at the luncheon for the new Playmate of the Year. (Her name is Allison Parks and she's a very ordinary looking girl.) Bill has just been named to produce the Milton Berle Show which will be on ABC next season. "He'll be the same old Milton Berle," Bill said. "Low comedy with high - class production, that's what we're aiming for." Will Bill Dana appear on the program? "I don't know if I can afford me," Bill said. We have proof positive that, in one respect at least, American girls are daintier than European girls. The proof comes from Anjanette Comer, who is now filming "Funeral in Berlin" in Germany. She was getting her wardrobe there and she told the wardrobe mistress she needed narrow shoes — the narrowest they had. And the i h 6 e s were acquired, but even Europe's narrowest were far too wide for Anjanette. So teven pairs of AAAA-width shoes were quickly air - freighted out from Hollywood.

Brandstadt, M.D. The rat has been man's enemy since prehistoric times because each year it destroys millions of dollars worth of food, buildings and merchandise. Many seizures of grain and other foods by the Food and Drug Administration are made because of Contamination by rodents. By gnawing electric cables rats may cause .hort circuiting and fires. In addition to this rats help to disseminate such dread scourges as bubonic plague, rat bite fever, dysentery and typhus. They breed several times a year and produce 6 to 22 young in a litter. Their persistence in our communities has resulted from indifference and tolerance due largely to lack of public knowledge of their dangerous and destructive potentials. Garbage containers that are not kept tightly covered «r« a boon to rats. They will gnaw their way into any place whi.e food is stored unless prevented by solid brick, stone and metal construction. The price of freedom from rats is constant vigilance. The rats have wayi of knowing when such vigilance Is relaxed and they will spread the 1 word to members o.' their family by whatever meant rat* use to communicate interesting ideas. Rale bite fever is a bacterial infection that is found chiefly but not exclusively in infants who live in rat - infesteu buildings. This fact attests to the audacity of these rodents. When this disease is diagnosed, penicillin U the treatment usually given. Bubonic plague and typhus are transmitted to man through intermediate hosts, the rat flea and the louse, respectively. Warfarin is .n effective rat poison. It is an anticoagulant which in large doses causes internal bleeding. It has the advantage that it is odorless and tasteless but the bait to which it is added must be placed where it cannot be eaten by children or household pets. Shoxin norbor- mide (Ratikate) is another rat poison that has the further advantage that it is poisonous only to rats. Q — My eye doctor says I have a clouded retina In one eye and that there is nothing to do for it but watch it for awhile. I hop* I can avoid it becoming a cataract. . A -Although there may be clouding of the lens (cataract) or the cornea, I wouldn't know what wit meant by. "clouded retina" unless your aoctor was referring to a choked disk. But this would call for immediate treatment. In any case there is no known way to prevent the development of a cataract. It has been estimated that over the. United State* about 43 million tons of dust settle each year. Of this, 31 million tom is from natural sources, including 1 million tons of pollen. The rest is caused by human activities. In sections with the heaviest industrialization as much as 200 tons per square mile have fallen. In Detroit, Mich., measure* ments of 72 tons of dust per square mile per month have been taken.

"I'm afraid," he says, "that ABC will put us opposite a big show, to try and knock the other one down. That's poor thinking. They should put us opposite weak show, so we could get stronger.
