The Spine Is Indeed Rigid The tobacco industry may think they've seen formidable opposition during the trying years since someone first induced tumors on mice with nicotine coal tars but they may have seen nothing yet. No ' is a figure in the United States Senate that Sen. Robert F. Kennedy has grown weary of promised and hoped-for self-imposed re- traints on cigarette advertising. •; "This matter can wait no longer," Senator Kennedy said in a speech on the Senate floor. "Thousands of young people every year are still buying premature death when they buy their first package of cigarettes. Preventive action is therefore imperative." ', Senator Kennedy further expressed his disappointment over the industry's rijuch discussed program for policing their advertising. "Both industries (cigarette and broadcasting) must come up with a realistic program to police themselves," the Senator said. If'- the Senator's words on this subject rang ominously in the industry's finely- tuned ears they should. Lack of intra- iffdustry policing, he said, will lead to fade- 1 legislation which will make mandatory a code of prudence for such advertising. I- During the development of his ca- riser, it has been interesting to note tjiat Senator Kennedy, although far from being universally liked, is nearly universally respected. No one has been left to speculate about the rigidity of hi« spine. The tobacco industry would do well to take a stitch at this time in order to save a few thousand which Senator Kennedy did not learn at his mother's knee. We would note a form of pushing tobacco (and liquor) however which is even more insidious than advertising. That is the use of cigarettes and liquor by some of the engaging characters in television shows. Every time Secret Agent lights one up, he's a more effective salesman for cigarettes than the ungrammatical "Winston Tastes Good Good Like a Cigarette Should." Whenever the Man from U.N.C.L.E. orders a Scotch he is that greatest of all salesman for that product of dubious distinction and taste. Young people are great mimics and theirs is a mimic culture. They imitate members of their peer group and their heroes (like Sonny and Cher). James Bond's predilection for certain Turkish blends gives cigarette smoking acceptance and status •which is not for sale at any price. As far as artistic license is concerned, it seems one could get across such messages as "Impeach Earl Warren," or '"Get the Marines out of Viet Narri," without firing up a mild, mentholated, dual-filtered tumor tube or gargling a glass of Napolean brandy. Perhaps the Senator from New York also may want to turn his attention to these more sophisticated and subtle salesmen.

Jeb Stuart the way to win a battle was to "get there fustest with the mostest." Many a bridge hand Is won or lost the same way. Get there first with a low card trick as declarer and you will make a doubtful contract. Get there first as defender and you chalk up a penalty. West has a very tempting club lead. Not only does he hold the ace and king but his partner has bid the suit. Of course his partner did bid under duress after West made a takeout double. But the club lead would give West a chance to take a look at dummy before continuing his defenw. That look would also be a trifle too late. He could shift to win and be able to set up dummy's queen of clubs for a diamond discard before West could establish a diamond trick. In other words the club lead would lose the timing of the hand. The correct lead with the West hand is the queen of diamonds. He doesn't need to look over dummy. He is looking at his own hand and can see that his ace and king of clubs are not going away. If they are tricks at trick one, they will be tricks Danny broke all the rules by replying, "1 was there 14 days and I don't think that Is enough tune to get well informed."

With the queen of diamonds lead West is going to get there first. He will be able to establish and collect his diamond trick before South has a chance to do anything about a discard. Incidentally, if North had tried a no - trump bid instead of four spades, his side would have gotten there first against any defense. He would only need nine tricks and there is no way for the defense to pick up five tricks first. *l M m MM muring for pvMte efffiet wodtf CM* mxU Haai vnr «U your tuW BIOSSAT AND CROMLEY IN WASHINGTON Ted Kennedys Hot Potato: Infighting in Home State By BRUCE BIOSSAT Washington Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. BOSTON (NBA) . Massachusetts Democrats iiave gotten themselves into such a fuddle this spring that they seem sure to be seriously handicapped in their autumn quest for a U. ,S. Senate seat and the first four-year governorship. Several months ago, Mayor John Collins of Boston looked rather well-set for the Senate nomination, and Edward McCormack, nephew of House Speaker John McCormack, h a A a large edge for the governor's spot. Now, as the party rushes toward its mid-June "advisory" convention, Collins is widely considered to be fighting uphill against a former governor, Endicott (Chub) Peabody. McCormack is being pressed very hard by Maurice Donahue, state Senate president. The interest for the country Sen. Edward M. (Ted) Kennedy is bound to be entangled in these quite untidy situations. Despite anything you may have read, Kennedy has not cast his weight for anybody, including the third runner in the governorship race Kenneth O'Donnell, former top aide to the late John F. Kennedy. Many of Ted's supporters are working for Donahue, and a few for O'Donnell. But that is nothing like Kennedy giving a personal nod. Yet the Senator's power and prestige in Massachusetts can hardly escape involvement. If two scarred nominees enter the autumn lists for the Democrats and do poorly in November, some are likely to blame Tedl Against this background, it for not trying to elevate attrac-1 would be helpful to him if he HOLLYWOOD (NBA) CBS had a hoopla to generate enthusiasm among the press for its coming television season. Highspots were a banquet, at which all the CBS stars were introduced, and a quick trip to San Francisco for kicks. At the banquet, I sat with CBS President John Reynolds and Danny Kaye. Well, actually I sat with CBS President John Reynolds and a transistor radio, because Danny kept his palm- sized transistor in his ear all night listening to the Dodger's game. Reynolds applauded politely as each star was introduced but it was only when Jack Sheldon stood up that he was genuinely appreciative. "That boy," he said, "is going to be a very big star some day." Sheldon will star in a new series, Run, Buddy, Run, on the network this fall. During the San Francisco trip a group of us — purely as a psychological experiment — looked in on the North Beach night clubs. Here is where the topless dancers originated and still flourish and the whole atmosphere is tawdry and depressing. We were driven back to our hotel by a taxicab driver who is a psychology student at San Francisco Satte. I asked him what they'll think of to top the topless — what can possibly come next? "Did you ever hear of S.M.?" he asked. We hadn't. He explained that S.M. means Sado Masochism and already there is one small club where a girl lectures on the fine points of sadism and masochism. Eventually, the cabbie predicted, there will be live demonstrations. Culture marches on. At that CBS banquet, Linda tive choices very quickly — so there would have been no messy struggle. From his viewpoint, using power within the state is not that simple. It is far from sweeping, in his case. He might cast his strength for a man only to see him lose the nomination or lose in November. That naturally gives him pause. Politicians in Massachusetts are of different minds on the subject. At least a few think could find a way to carve a few strong strokes in the kev state races of 1966. Nevertheless, up to now personally fruitful maneuvers of this sort seem to have eluded him. The tightening up of the Senate and governorship nomination struggles compounded Kennedy's difficulties. Collins has come on with a late rush against Peabody, who surprised many with his evidently commanding spring lead. ttiaTfailure" to use his strength Even if Collins falls short of major 1966 races will tend to getting the state convention nod move Kennedy away from his early image as a power-wielder toward the 'loner" posture John Kennedy maintained — with one important exception — throughout his years in Massachusetts politics. Ted's home-state problems are not his only current burden. He has been somewhat weakened I as a national figure by the mere fact that his older brother, Sen. Robert Kennedy of New York, has become "Kennedy" in the eyes of politicians and public and is the prime Kennedy contender for a future presidential nomination. It is a Kennedy family habit to defer to older brothers, as John once did to the late Joseph Kennedy Jr. and as Bob and Ted did to the late President. There is no sign Ted would have it any other way. But the consequence of this is to put a firm ceiling on any wider ambition for Ted for at least a decade and a half, and possibly longer. Unquestionably, this has its impact on his status in Massachusetts, not to mention elsewhere. Written for Newspaper thff T)nrtnV \/I<\Jl Enterprise Association we uocwr jay* By Vtsn £ Gi ur.^^, M .a Q — I have a chronic inflammation of the bladder. What causes it? I get relief by taking Mandelamine, but what I want is a cure. A — Cystitis is caused by a germ that has reached your bladder either from the outside (ascending infection) or through your blood stream. It is aggravated by a highly acid urine. If the condition is chronic there Is no simple treatment since different causative germs require different drugs. Sulfa drugs and nalidixic acid will often eliminate the cause. Q — For a urinary discomfort my doctor prescribed Man- delamine. When it failed to give sufficient relief he gave me Fur- admttn. How do these drugs act? A - Both are urinary antisep- tics. They kill some but not all types of germs that cause cystitis. Q ~ I have been to several doctors for my cystitis. Each one tries a different treatment. One says there is no cure. Is this true? Can an emotional up- 'set or physical weakness cause cystitis? A — Cure is often difficult and may require a period of hospitalization under a urologist who will determine what germ is causing your trouble and what other factors are contributing to its chronicity. Emotional upsets may cause an increased frequency of urination but will not cause a true cystitis and neither will physical weakness. . Q — What foods should be avoided by a person with albu- for U.S. senator, he will be a very tough competitor in the subsequent fight looking toward the Sept. 20 primary. Victory in convention for McCormack would presumably eliminate Donahue, who says he will accept the delegates' verdict (though it is not binding). A Donahue convention triumph would insure a three-way primary fight for the governorship, since' O'Donnell says he will go that route in any event. How these battles finally come out in September seems less important now than the fact that Collins and McCormack, the early - book favorites, proved so vulnerable in the late stages. The net of it is that the Democrats appear to have lost much of their hope that they could find two strong candidates against Republican Gov. John Volpe and the GOP Senate prospect, f-ttorney General Edward Brooke. The bitter residue of factionalism will cling to any Democratic nominee. Nor can any present himself as a shining star, easily triumphant over all. min in the urine due to nephritis? Is there any drug that would be helpful? A — Proteins must be avoided during the acute stage of nephritis, but as soon as this stage is over and there is a free passage of urine and a return of the appetite liberal amounts of protein should be given to overcome the protein deficiency that developed earlier in the course of the disease. You should get a balance ddiet, but it is wise to cut down on your intake of salt. A strict attempt to emilinate sodium from your diet, however, is not necessary. There is no drug that is given specifically to free the urine of albumin. Drugs are given to combat whatever caused t h • nephritis.

The city's inadequate sewer system hit the courts yesterday afternoon r.s the Blytheville Housing Authority filed suit for an injunction to prevent the Razorback Drive In and others from connecting with Chickasaw Courts' privately built sewer lines to reach the city's mains. P-t. Charles Roy Lutes arrived latt night from Camp Gordon, Ga. to spend a 12-day furlough with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Lutes. Mr. and Mrs. Charles W. Afflick of S t e e 1 e announce the birth of their first child, a daughter, born June i2 at the Memphis Methodist Hospital. Kaye Henning came over to our table to talk to John Reynolds. The pretty young star ol Petticoat Junction used to date Reynolds' son and politely paid her respects to him, Linda is still billed as Unda Kaye on Petticoat Junction but she doesn't like it. When the series started, she agreed to use that name to please her father, Paul Henning, who originated and produced the series. 'He was afraid I'd be hurt," Linda says, "because p e o p 1 • might think I got the part (Betty Jo) through him, which I didn't. But I never liked the name — 1 can't get used to people calling me Miss Kaye. that's not my name." Gradually she is trying to get back to her real name, by first going through a Linda Kaye Henning step and then, hopefully, she can be just Linda Henning again. Linda Whatever - Her - Name- Is still lives at home, which is rather unusual. Most Hollywood girls can't wait until they can leave home and get a small house with a large mortage. But Linda says she's still happy with her parents. "I have no urge to go out on my own," she says. "I'm able to lead an independent life at home. My parents know I'm a big girl and can take care of myself." She hopes, after her Petticoat is taken off (the air, that is), to- move on to bigger things. "I'd like to make a smashing feature film, and then a great Broadway show. And then I'd like to get married and have some children, but by then I'll have a big enough name so I can do a part if I feel like it." Ah,.the dreams of youth. Blytheville (Ark.)
