The Governor's Midwifery It isn't nice to point, but the Faubus ''•''Administration over th«r» in Littl* .Jock appears about ended after 12 ; years. And what sort of administration has it been? .-. Political scientist* have a term for '"that time in a nation's history which "occurs between the hot fires of revolu- • v tion and the stultification of advancing ^senility. They call it thermidor, a not .'hew term which is enjoying new popu- .-,-terity. . • •- •-• These same professionals may have ;;R name for that nexus between a primitive society and the mainstream—eco- IViiomically and intellectually.

Governor Faubus led the state forward in roads, college construction, teacher salaries and welfare payments. His efforts in this connection must not go unnoticed, nor have they. His leadership has been firm and progressive. But to look back too long is to stand ctilL Arkansas has added nearly 100,- 000 Industrial Jobs «nd hai doubled teacher salaries in the past decade. Fine. This means the state hag not «g far to go as it did ten years ago. But Arkansas continues to underestimate her people. There is no rea. son excellence can not flourish here. As a matter of fact there is every reason to believe that it can; that it must; that it will. Arkansas now must avoid the temptation of bragging about a teacher salary scale which ranks perhaps as high as 45th or as low as 49th among the several states. It must resist the inclination to believe that the University of Arkansas will not need to change; that Arkansas State College can continue to offer such subjects as fly-casting (that's no joke, folks . . . it's for real). All our college graduates can't or won't be nuclear physicists and thank God for that. However, all of this state's college graduates should be capable of writing and speaking simple, but correct, English. All the state's college graduates may be expected to have a superficial understanding of the trials and triumphs of the western world. All the state's college graduates should have these marks of educated men and women The same holds true of highways, industrialization, public health and all the other problems of living a state concerns itself with. Arkansas must quit comparing itself to Mississippi, Louisiana and Oklahoma. Governor Faubus' midwifery in bringing the state into the new society has not been without incident and progress. The time is at hand for the state to cast aside old yardsticks. The people are capable of greatness, if only they become convinced of it.

WASHINGON (NBA) Some 24 skilled members of the United Auto Workers, laboring barely two months in leftist - oriented Guinea, already have restored to action about half the cranes and rusting there in long disuse. This trained cadre of blue- ment, the union is trying in a large way to attune itself to what it sees as the internationalizing of capialism. The big corporations are leaping national boundaries, setting up plants in Europe, Latin America, Africa and elsewhere. The UAW figures labor must match, the trend er diminish in influence. Under the guise of Informing motorists how soon their green light will change to amber, a Texas inventor has perfected a device for further intimidating the pedestrian. His amber lens has illuminated digits that begin to flash on successively, nine seconds before the amber lights up. The theory is that motorists trying to make the green will be tlbe to read the figures and do something or other about them. But the one who surely will be able to read them is the pedestrian, who knows already that if the red light catches him in the walk- way, the only things standing between him and mortificatoin of the flesh are luck and the right-of-way rule book. The thing seems geared to freeze him at the near surbline. The count-down idea seems better adapted to the blast-off, as they say over at The Cape. Let the amber tell you how long you have to wait for the green. Then you can launch yourself precisely on time (time is money) and before the nut behind can begin to honk.—New Orleans Times-Picayune. collar Peace Corps workers, j The union is creating a pool sent to Guinea this year under j of 50 experts to help foreign joint Peace Corps - USW sponsorship, could be the vanguard many such units around the world.

This four club bid would surely have produced a successful game contract and might well have led to the same club slam. labor groups in collective bargaining, in wage research, in preparation of labor and social legislation.

X-rays of my intes tines ifailed to show anything wrong. Does this indicate that further tests should be made er do I have something that laxatives will control? A - Without further tests I would say you have described the typical findings of mucous colitis. Laxatives would make it worse. There are many remedies for this condition but none of them will help you unless you adhere to a bland (no roughage) diet and arrange to eliminate emotional stresses. Q — I have colitis and am taking an enema of one quart of water with two teaspoonfuls of starch twice a day. Will this cure me? A - No — it will probably make your colitis worse. An enema should be taken only if you have gone 48 hours without a bowel movement (72 hours following a loose stool and then you should use only eight ounce: of warm water with nothing in the water. Such an enema should be held for five minutes bclore letting it pass out. Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association By Wayne G. Brandstadt, M.D. Q — I have had colitis for three years. My doctor prescribed Azulfidine, Lomotil, cort- izone and a milk - free diet. Must I take these drugs indefinitely? How long does it take to cure this condition? M A — Anyone who is taking | Azulfidine should have a periodic blood examination. Lomo(il should not be taken by any- one'who has cirrhosis of the liver or who is taking barbiturates. Cortisone should not be taken for more than 10 days at a time with an interval of three or four weeks between courses. Colitis is aggravated by milk and milk products in some, but not all; victims. Like all chronic conditions, cure may take a long time but it can be achieved. The duration of the'treatment would depend on the severity of the disease and the;skill of your physician.

(AP) - A complete set of one of the most unusual newspapers ever published has been donated to Notre Dame University Iwe. The paper, called "The Wawa," is .:ot only printer] in shorthand but it's in the CM- nook language of ihe British Columbia Indians. "Wawa" is a Chinook word meaning to speak talk or echo. One of the Opiate pries ti wai the originator of the Wawa. He created It by adapting phonetics to the Chinook jargon in order to instruct the Indians in easy phonetic writing. She laughed — because In real life she has seven children, ranging from one in college to a 10-months-old baby. Jeanne starts a television »er- ies - Men Against Evil, with Howard Duff — soon. And that, she's afraid, will effectively put an end to her extracurricular studies. She has for many years taken courses at UCLA; recently she completed courses in astronomy and art history of th* Renaissance. Andrews is busy, too. After this, he has three other films lined up — the next one in England, then Egypt and Rome: "I hate packing," Dana said. "Especially like this —England will be cold, Egypt hot and Rome so-so." Jeanne Crain, looking as young and lovely as ever, says she's made some 36 pictures and, surprisingly, this is only :he third role in which she's been a mother. "I guess they don't think I'm the mother type," she said. Producer Sam Katzman has cast several fresh, new faces as the three menacing teenagers. Best ; known of the three is the girl, lovely Mimsy Farmer. "I hope I don't get typed as the bad girl," Mimsy says. "I've generally played sweet young things before. And what worries me is that they never tested me for this bad girl part — they signed me after just looking at me. That really worries me." The boys are Paul Bertoya ann Gene Kirkwood. Bertoya is a cousin of former major leaguer Reno Bertoia (Paul changed the spelling of his name) and the son-in-law of the ex • movie great, Billie Dove. He's a young and handsome Canadian. Kirkwood came to Hollywood from New Rochelle, N. Y., an odd way — he hit the numbers in New York for $500 (he put $1 on 412) and blew it on a plane ticket to California. Then he parked cars at a restaurant and it was there that an agent found him. "I made more money parking cars," he says, "than I'm ak- ing in this picture." 75 Years Ago -In Blytheville "Drama Through the Ages" was the topic used ,"or the dis- :ussion led by Mrs. P. D.
