We Didn't Enter Clean * 'Americans never have quit* understood why people don't love us. Actually, many do love us; some both love and respect us. The average American citizen hns been conditioned to accept th« premise that his nation has always been well intentioned. Thin has been the case through much of history, but not all of it. Many citizens feel the traditional European allies of this nation have put justice foremost in their relations with other peoples and this simply isn't true. 'When the Dutch, French and English imposed oppressive colonial rule on the people of Southeast Asia, for example, they, in the eyes of Asians, typified the western, white, Christian nation-state. Perhaps unjustly, this generalization included the United States. Subsequent events of a racial nature in the United States were widely reported around the world and the image presented by these events seemed to confirm Asian suspicions concerning white, western, Christian nations. And so the United States did not enter Vietnam "clean," so to speak as fai' as the Asians are concerned. Whatever truly motivated us to enter that particular arena, the Asians could not and will not shuck off their attitudes regarding western powers. This, then, explains in part why even some South Vietnamese don't lov« us "tven after all we've done for them." This is not to imply the policies which began to emerge, bit by bit, some eix or eight years ago and which led u» into » costly war were totally wrong, nor to. say that our presence in South Vietnam does not serve soihe national interests. Exploration of these facts seemed to be in order as this country confronts new political crises in that far land. In fact, the most recent Buddhist uprising appears to be only that—an uprising. However, it weakens the caus« of America in Vietnam in that again the white man's motives are impugned. Although the regime of Premier Ky Is only a practical necessity in pursuit of military objectives, America must be cautious of being maneuvered into a position of supporting a Vietnamese government which is not supported by the people of Vietnam. It would be terribly convenient if the Vietnamese people endorsed whatever leaders we might select for their tiny nation state, but this hope overlooks the fact that it is, as a matter of fact, their nation and they desperately wish to have a say in their government. Their gratitude apropos American efforts in South Viet Nam obviously is tempered by the awful cost of war.

Murtagh of New York's Criminal Court argued that drunkenness itself ought not to be treated as a crime. As he put it: "If I want to get plastered in the Waldorf-Astoria and walk home without bothering any one, why should society waste Its time on me? We have a right to sin until the cows come home. But we're accountable to Someone Else, not the police and the courts," Judge Murtagh's Is a civilizing attitude toward the law; more broadly, he expressed the hope that eventually the criminal law would encompass the arrest of a person only when he "disturbs others." This attitude is, of course, in contradistniction to that of the professional moralists who see the criminal law as a means of enforcing their own codes on everybody. But Judge Burtagh's better fits the percepts of a free society.—New York Herald Tribune. BIOSSAT AND CROMLiY IN WASHSNGTOH The GOP Right-Wingers Don't Talk With Cash Wives Given Guidelines Writing in a recent issue of the American Salesman, Norma S. Upson listed the ten commandments for a salesman's wife: They are (1) You shall not meet him at the door yith your problems (2) You shall not be unprepared for last minute guests. (3) You shall not-answer the telephone without a cheerful voice and an efficient pencil. (4) You shall know your husband's company, products and accounts. (5) You shall be well groomed at all times. (6) You shall keep a supply of clean shirts, socks and underwear on hand at all times. (7) You shall have Interests and hobbies beyond home and family. (8) You shall accept and be realistic about the possibilities of transfer. (9) You shall make an honest effort to understand the world in which he works. (10) You shall love him, trust him, and have faith in him. Why pick on salesmen's wives?

Lots' of experts are inclined to play too fast when the hand appears to be a cinch. At both tables in an important match in England the bidding and play of the first two tricks went quickly and identically. Each declarer won the diamond opening with dummy's ace and led a trump to Ms ace. West was unkind enough to show out and play slowed down to a turtle's pace. Eventually, each expert led a heart to dummy's queen. Then each led a heart back toward his own hand and played low after East produced the nine. The East players proceeded to do a little celebrating of their own and came up with the kill- Ing lead of the queen of trumps. Th> unfortunate Souths won with their kings and had the choio* of duth by hanging or (hooting. They could ruff on« losing heart in dummy but that play would establish East's nine of trumps and they would wind up losing one triirrip, one club and two hearts or they could pull East's last trump and lose three! hearts and a club. You can't I make four spades if you lose four tricks and both experts went down. If either South had (topped for some real study before leading that first trump he would have had no trouble making his game. He would simply have led the queen of hearts from dummy to make it impossible for two turnips to be led before South was ready to ruff some hearts. Of course, this might have lost against some very bad break in hearts but there was less chance for it to happen than for the actual distribution. By BRUCE BIOSSAT Washington Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. WASHINGTON (NEA) Republican leaders may not have to live indefinitely with fears that many badly needed big money boys will defect if continuously and warmly culti- the party's right wing is not continously and warmly cultivated. The threat has hung over the party since before the prime Gpldwater days. Particularly in certain key state races, GOP candidates' views appeared to have been tailored to please — or at least avoid offending — major conservative campaign contributors. Leaders' constant call for "party unity" is p r i v a t ely acknowledged by some professionals to be, in some part, a response to the real or presumed threat of a money cutoff. There is evidence today, how- ver, that the threat may not be as great as imagined. There is evidence that at least a fair number of tough - talking conservatives do not put their money where their mouth is. The evidence is found in a jrport on 19fi4 campaign financing by Herbert Alexander, di- report on 1964 campaign finan- Citizens' Research Foundation in Princton, N. J. A commonplace of Barry Goldwater's presidential campaign, from prenomination time on, had it that GOP fat cats would give big only if he were the nominee. This was said to be particularly true in what then was often called "Goldwater country," areas highly favorable to him, which included California, Texas, Illinois and Ohio. The foundation report shows, however, that on the basis of contributions of $500 or more to national - level presidential committees, the big money types chipped in less in California and Illinois than they did four years earlier for Richard M. Nixon. In California, 1960 contributions of $500 or more carne to 188 for $214,737, while for Goldwater in 1964 there were 173 contributions aggregating $160,- •^\/A^ rfjf fr^"*"" "Yet, rftor, you may tot • rfrtn witft a fftort ttirl fttt yOtf 0Mw aft In Illinois, * the $500-or-more crowd gave Nixon $255,234 and Goldwater just $243,052, though in 1964 this reporter was told many times that the "big fellows" were calling the turn with their "Goldwater - or - no - money" routine. Goldwater did indeed get much more money in this category in Texas and Ohio :in this State the ratio was 2 to 1 over Nixon). But in the remaining 10 Old South states, many of them hot for Barry, big contributions were down from 1960 in three and only narrowly higher in two others. In states like Michigan and Minnesota, where large but not dominant Goldwater factions insisted no other nominee coujd corral big contributors, the total they gave was either greatly or substantially below the amounts money, given Nixon. Only the fact that big Goldwater contributions were widely spread through southern, western and some midweslern states shoved his total over Nixon's by some $60,000 — a tiny increase when set beside, the greatly expanded money demands of the 1964 campaign. Goldwater's financial bacon was saved, of course, by the 651,000 contributions' of less than 5100 which poured into his treasury in response to mail and tele- western with well - known po- litica iresug. 1 For the hero, Corey would chose from either Gerald Ford, Ted Kennedy or John Lindsay.

Courier News Page Six Thursday, June 2, 1966 The foundation report naturally stresses that no record exists of "presidential" contributions at state and local party levels. But it was the tendency of Goldwater contributors, large and small, to send their money to national headquarters for fear some of it would be otherwise be divereted to modrat candi- dats they disapproved. Big moderate contributors, for their part, tended to reserve their money for moderate state • local nomines, or to give big to President Johnson, whose party gained a new peak in big donations. In sum, big conservative contributions driven off by party tactics annoying to the right wing may be heavily offset by moderate money.

The rice diet was highly successful in reducing blood pros- ffritten for Newspaper Enterprise Association By Wayne 6. Brandstadt, M.D. Q — I am 57 years old and]sure when properly administer- have high blood pressure. What ed but was too unpalatable for should my pressure be? Would a cocktail before dinner be harmful? Would a large amount of salt on my food effect my blood pressure? Several years ago I read about a rice diet used at Duke University to control high blood pressure. What do you think of this diet? A — The blood nressure varies widely. The upper (systolic) reading should be about 100 plus half your age but readings that are much higher may be observed and have no significance. The reading to watch is the lower (diastolic) level which should never be over 100. Inasmuch as a cocktail may help you to relax it may lower your blood pressure slightly. Sodium as table salt or in any persons and was deficient in protein. It has no advantage over a more liberal diet that is poor in sodium and is now rarely prescribed. Substitutes for table salt are now available for persons who don't like unsalted food. Q — What causes high blood pressure? Can it be cured? Are there any side effects from drugs given to reduce high blood prssure? A - The cause of high blood pressure is not alwavs apparent but nervous tension and obesity certainly aggravate it. Although a cure is unlikely it is both possible and advisable to control this condition. Many different drugs are used for this purpose and all of them may have undesirable side effects but, by skillfully adjusting the dosage and switching from one to an- ether, j-our doctor can help you avoid these. Q — My 18 - year gets excited when - old son his blood pressure is taken and the doctor says it goes up to 190. He says he feels fine. What should he do about his bigh blood pressure? A — You failed to say what the lower reading was. Many young persons have an unstable systolic pressure which is of little significance. If your son were to He down and have his pressure taken every 15 minutes it would most likely return to normal in less than 30 minutes. As long as his diastolic pressure is within normal limits there is no cause for alarm. Q - A friend has a blood pressure of 180 over 110. I didn't think a person could have so high a diastolic pressure and be able to work. Isn't she in danger of having a stroke? A - High blood pressure does predispose to a stroke but It doesn't usually cause any warning symptoms. Your friend should be treated to bring her diastolic pressure down below 100.
