If Elected, I'll Let You Know' Probably net unlike nuuty voters, th«iCouri«r N.w» it inttreittd in th« thinking- of tht vtrioui D*mocr*tio candidates for governor on many issues. For that reason this newspaper sent out a list of 18 questions, some of which have several parts, to each of the candidates. To date, one candidate —Kenneth Sulcer — has submitted answers. It is possible that the response to the questionnaire is indicative of attitudes some of the candidates have in regard to the people they art asking to serve. Sam Boyce, Brooks Hays nad Frank Holt expressed interest in the poll, but all pointed out that they did not want to give quick answers. Mr. Hays asked that he be given at least until June 1 to prepare his answers. He was told, of course, that his answers will be printed whenever he sends them along. Mr. Holt said his response will be forthcoming; "as soon as time will permit." Raymond Rebsamen said, incredibly enough, that "if I'm elected, all questions of importance to the people will be decided." Y« sir, »nd that's what prompted th. poll. For example, we can't reinember anyone asking Gov. Orval Faubus how the business at H6t Springs would be run "if elected." After the election, Arkansas found out: Hot Springs for nearly a decade was the Las Vegas of the Bible Belt, the shame of a state (amusingly enough, Hot Springs had its face washed under the leadership of a church- centered group, only when the Spa •ought to make legal its decade of illegitimacy, proving, we'd guess, that Arkansas church-centered groups are opposed to legalized gambling, but can wink at all that other jazz for ten years running). Well, anyway, it just occurred to us that perhaps someone should ask the candidates how they feel about Hot Springs prior to the election rather than opt for Mr. Rebsamen's plan of waiting until after the election when "all questions of importance to the people will be decided." Dr. Dale Alford, of the gummed sticker school of politics, and Jim Johnson (you remember Red Necks, Inc., don't you?) and those other chaps in the race deigned not to reply in any fashion and if this is indicative of their view of politics, perhaps it's just as well. Of Hallucinations On The Congress seems to be under the impression that the enormous Johnson budget is merely a launching pad for orbiting its own additional billions. In any criticism of Executive-branch extravagance, let no one overlook the sterling lawmakers. True, it is the Administration in office which must first be faulted when a budget roars out of sight of reason and prudence. iThose words certainly describe the document the President presented Congress for the 1967 fiscal year beginning this July 1. At 1112.8 billion it breaks all records and towers more than $6 billion above the original estimates for the present period. Instead of studying that messy conglomeration for places to pare tt, many members of the majority are whooping it up as though they never saw a billion dollars before, and sometimes they are abetted by the minority. They've even gat Mr. Johnson worried. It's reckoned that, with the session far from over, Congress has already enacted, or Is pretty sure to, some $3 billion worth of expenditures above and beyond the Johnson budget And what is tt mostly for? Mostly pork, In all the infinite variety that today's staggering spending makes possible . . . Now some of the lawmakers do make an argument of sorts for their unbecoming conduct. They charge that the Administration, to keep the budget from looking any worse than it does, deliberately cut "politically popular" programs. In this view, the Administration was betting that Congress would restore the cuts, putting thebonus of budget-boosting on Congress. Without passing on ffie merits of me allegation, we suggest that the argument is phony. If Congress wants to restore the reductions in the allegedly popular programs, it should whack away elsewhere. Inpractically all along the line. What is mainly clear is that this is election-year politicking with a vengeance. In the clamor the voices of reason in Congress are being drowned out by the spenders who blithely ignore the consequences of their decisions in a time of inflation and costly war. If their activity is said to be in the .national interest, somebody's having hallucinations.— Wall Street Journal.

WASHINGTON (NBA) Fifteen years ago, young 'ham Duy stood on a steep mountain slope singing new trength into sweating peasants bragging artillery, food and ammunition over "impassable" mountains for Ho Chi Minn's armies. The French had said Ho ouldn't move these guns and that rugged terrain nd based their strategy on this ogic. But Ho commandeered ),000 peasants — and teams of ingers — to do the job. "Without the singing the guns tould never have gotten over he mountains," says Pham Where the troops went, Ho ent the singers. "We went with the soldiers when they moved into the hamlets and when they attacked the French outposts, I remember five minutes before one attack the attack one soldier told me 'I could still hear your songs when I was in the midst of th battle.' " When Ho's political - military action cadres went into the hamlets, Pham Duy and his fel low singers went with them. Their job was to soften up the hearts' of the villagers. "We moved in and lived with the farmers, learned their prob lems. Then we made songs about the village and its people. "We took their stories and inserted our political ideas — like new wine in old bottles — and made songs to sing to them. "We sang of the words of a young soldier before .leaving lome — what he said to his mother, his wife and his children. Then we sang the voice of the mother, the wife and the children answering. Then the soldier's voice sang 'If I die you must hate the enemy.' "We sang about the suffering of the people, about freedom I sang for the soldiers. -After I and indpendence and patriot- ism. "We sang of the need for destroying the French colonists. We made songs about victorious battles - like the battle of Song La. "We sang of the miseries of the people and how Ho would help them. "It made the job of the political - military action cadres easier." Pham Duy left the Viet Minh forces in 1951 when Ho began communizing the National Front fighting the French. "They wanted songs of class hate — so I left. "I had a friend in the army who was a hero. He was brave and worked earnestly. But because his parents were rich he was disgraced in an instant — ust like that. In one day he was out. This is a worthy undertaking Daddy??" and "Tobruk."

Here are a couple of samples: Gary Owen, my favorite disc jockey (he calls himself a [osh dickey), says he heard how the San Francisco Giants bought Robin Roberts to go with Juan Marichal. Thus they have Satman and Robin on the same earn. And Vince Scully, broadcast- ng the Dodgers' games, says hat when Robin Roberts pitches o John Bateman, you've got a Sateman and Robin battery.

Cattani worked with Marlon Faro is one of the oldest card games in the world and during the 19th century was considered the "national American card • game." It was supposedly named from the picture of a pharaon on French playing cards imported into Great Britain. Faro was mentioned In English law as early as 1739. It was commonly played in gaming i rooms, especially in western United States, until I »bout 1915.

Brandstadt, M.D, not stop crying over not being allowed to bring a toy to the table. What can we do to bring him out of this annoying habit? A — A child who becomes crybaby has usually been overprotected and has an abHorma! feeling of dependency for his age. You must show him that you love him but at the saim time refuse to sympathize with his bids for your pity. Discipline is essential for all children, well or sick, and bringing tops to the table must be nipped in the bud. I am, however, violently opposed to depriving a child of iiis food as a means of punishment. Even the condemned man about to be executed is allowed to have a hearty meal. A child should be sent away from the table only when he refuses to eat what is set before him. Q — My 9 - year - old daugh er has been bleeding from her tidneys since July.
