Brace Yourself for a Surge ,; The old town seems to be gathering «*elf for another surge forward. Last week, a $150,000 fund drive waa launched to complete purchase and development of a 151-acre industrial site. Continental Oil Company's Barfield plant began making its first overland find overwater shipments of anhydrous ammonia and someone figured that the nitrogen produced there will result In about a half-billion dollars worth of food and fiber every year. Continental has plans to dedicate its big plant here in the fall. Over at City Hall, several projects were not only cooking but were simmering along quite well. On the back of the cHe range were Urban Renewal plans for South Side and downtown. Sizzling along on the front burners were Urban Renewal paving in the Cen - tral District (bids are due to be sought soon) and paving of Moultrie-Broadway Extended and paving on the North Side project. This isn't all, of course, but it's a quite good little spring agenda at that. Since we've often been great for urging professional planning on people, we think the action of the Chamber in developing an industrial site is noteworthy. A professional service—The Fantus Co., of Chicago — long ago recommended that the city purchase •crftage for an industrial ]iark. The »it« which is (or will be) under development was described in a recent Chamber meeting aa "the best one we could find." It's probably better than that by eeveral miles. The site is on State High* way 18 within sight of both Interstate 55 and the Municipal Airport, adjacent to a rail spur and only a half. dozen miles to Barfield Landing at th« river. This just may make it the best industrial site in Arkansas or on th« lower part of the mioVMississippi River valley. This land belongs to Armorel Planting Co., which is under the aegis of E. M. Regenold, who also happen* to be, along with R. A. Porter, co-chairman of the Chamber's fund drive. Mr. Regenold frankly told a group of the Chamber workers this might look a little peculiar—this business of his heading a drive to buy property from his enterprise. Well, at $1,500 per acre, the Chamber could double its money pretty quick if it ever decided to sell the property for other purposes. It is an eminently fair arrangement: The Chamber not only gets Mr. Regenold's land at a bargain price, it gets his not inconsiderable talents for free. One of the Chamber's better deals, we'd say. ,tL* Of Sbow Beat h Dick Kleiner HOLLYWOOD (NBA) Oscar night ...

Lynda Bird Johnson and Jeorge Hamilton were the main Back on some hidden closet hook, every man has a wide tie that testifies to his former elegance and stirs memories of mismanaged gravy at dinners otherwise forgotten. Such former partners in fashion as sharkskin suits, with broad lapels, and wide-brimmed hats have long been interred in attic trunks. But the four-inch tie with giant stripes can be dusted off for use. The wide look is back in style with polka dots, persian-rug designs and bright paisleys. Again men will wear the ties that blind. "We definitely see the wider tie In the future and we're going up to three inches," says a spokesman for A. Sulka & Co., which Is salt of the temple of tiedom in New York City. * * * Going up, too, will be the prices. These wider ties are selling for rather bfty amounts of $7.50 to $12, a bit stiff to those still sporting Aunt Ethel's $1.50 Christmas offerings. But, whatever type of tie purchased this year, buyers are warned by The Wall Street Journal that all prices will be about 50 cents more. So go ahead, men, and adopt the wide-tie look.

These were the Invectives that labor leaders hurled at a method being used by the Canadian National Bailway to keep engineers alert while at the throttle. And they are ruffled-sleeve invec- ' lives, stout as a dish rag, telling something about the labor movement. The method being used converts today's Casey Jones, the brave engineer, into nothing more than an automated A.C. or B.C. Jones by plugging him directly into an electric circuit. Wires lead to his chair and unless he touches a piece of metal every 20 seconds—or if already touching metal, stops touching it— what is called an "alertor" begins emitting an electronic squeal. Then, if the engineer still doesn't perform his St. Vitus chore, the train automatically grinds to a halt. Distaughting? Undignified? There was a day not long ago when a fiery brand of labor leader would have used considerably more picturesque language and this decline in muscular invective elicits its own description. It's shocking, that's what.—Detroit Free Press.

There an til wrti o( ! squeezes for declarer to try. Correct technique is for South to assume that East has the queen of spades and to start play by taking the ace of spades and running off four trump tricks. Dummy will discard the deuce of spades and the chances are that West will jettison two diamonds and East a couple of spades. South's next play should be to lead out dummy's king of spades and note that both opponents follow. By this time South can suspect the actual distribution. He leads three rounds oi hearts, trumping the third one with his next to last trump. Then he leads out his last trump. West will have to throw another diamond in order to keep the high heart. Dummy's last heart will be thrown and East will also have to chuck a diamond to hold the spade queen. The diamonds will all be good! By RAY CROMLEY I Washington Corresonclent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. WASHINGTON (NBA) When young Tung Chi-ping was going to college in Shanghai, Communist China, in the early 1960s, he says there was only one Communist true believer in his class of 2*. The other 19 were skeptics, opponents or opportunists. Tung, a young Peking Foreign Service officer, escaped in 1964 and sought U.S. asylum. We talked together at the office of a man we both knew. Tung says he didn't have time to study much in school. "So we didn't learn much." The Communists were always putting on campaigns for this and that. Trng an dhis fellows were required to volunteer their services. Nine weeks out of each school year were spent in the fields doing manual labor out in the countryside. They planted, harvested, built dikes, carried night soil. They no longer studied Marxism in Red China's schools by the time Tung reached college. It was all Maoism, the teachings of Mao Tse-tung. They went over these teach-1 "Our class made 25 tons of ings and over them and over them until Tung and his fellow students were sick to death of it. It was the same thing over and over again with nothing new. The political cadres the party used to lead the campaigns and do the political teaching were usually men or women with little education. The college types looked down on them. Tung was required to attend political meeting?, sometimes every day. In easier periods it was several times a week. There were weeks ni which the required political meetings filled all his time. Sometimes they went on most of the day and lasted until midnight. Sometimes they lasted all day and all night. The self - criticism meetings were the worst. Especially bad were those sessions called to condemn and convict some fellow student. 'They didn't leave the man any dignity."

"We were all worked up. But the people never bothered even to take it away." * * •» In many places in China Juring the late 1950s and the early 1960s, Tung knew people didn't have enough food. He knew that many died. But this was never mentioned publicly. The officials were announcing great crops. "We knew they were lying." Then they tried to hide the failure of the communes, said Tung. But everyone knew that the communes had failed. Tung said he and his fellows heard about the Hungarian revolt against the Russians. Students hung around the radio cheering the Hungarians on. When the revolt was put down and nothing happened, they lost some of their own hopes. At the time of Cuba, Tung said, "we enjoyed the U.S.S.R. suffering humiliation from the United States." Tung knew how the other sta dents felt because they talked together. "We knew whom to trust because we lived together — most of us — for three or four years in school." ably more attractive in person ihan she photographs.

Jumping up and down on a trampoline looks like such fun you can't blame every child in the neighborhood for wanting to try it. Like most other sports, however, it is safe only when performed under supervision The apparatus should never be left set up where amateurs who have not had proper instructions can use it. Improper use can cause severe sprains and bruises of the back, ankles and, most serious of all, the neck. Once a child has made a few Jumps on a trampoline there is a great temptation to add a little variety and try some acrobatic feats. This must be firmly prohibited until the child is thoroughly familiar with the fundamentals of the sport. These should be taught by an instructor who is familiar with the hazards and how to avoid them. Q — My sister's baby, 4-weeks old, hasn't had a natural bowel movement since she was brought home from the hospital. The doctor says to give her an infant suppository every four days. What would cause this condition? Can't something be done about it? A — Your sister has a very wise doctor.

A — In this condition there is pain in the eyes and some impairment of vision. It is a disservice to a child with this, or any other disease, to withhold any punishment that is deserved. When it is deserved and what form the punishment should take often calls for a great deal of judgment. There is no danger that any child your daughter sits with will catch her neuritis but every effort should be made to find and treat the underlying cause of her trouble. Unless this process is checked it will lead to a permanent partial loss of vision. Q — To stretch my food dollars, I mix a quart of whole milk with a quart of reconstituted powdered milk. Will this deprive my children of any essential nutrients? Is margarine as nutritious as butter?
