WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE I, I960 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N DON SCHELLIE'S TUCSON PAGE 9 I'm Armed To The Teeth pipe- I must go down to the smokeshop again, To buy a new pipe and stoke it, And get a pack of a hurley blend, To put in my pipe and smoke it. I have taken the big step and am now a smoker. But still a novice, mind you. My tongue is not yet calloused to the bite and my stomach objects, violently, at times. But pipesmoker lam. That is, when I remember to be. At times I forget and whole days pass without my thinking to stoke up the ol" briar for so much as an evening- puff. If I do think of the pipe, I happen to be dragging on a cigarette at the time. In years past I have- taken an occasional turn at pipesmoking but have never gone beyond the first pack of tobacco. But this time I am determined that I will see it through. For you you see, I have purchased a Pipe Tool. It is an ingenious gadget that serves four purposes necessary to serious pipesmoking. It tamps tobacco, cleans the shank, reams the carbon and extracts the ashes. In no particular order. Equipped with a nifty tool like that--representing an investment of $1--it would be sheer folly for me not to continue my new-found habit. Ben Goldberg, the smokeshop man, is at the bottom of it. A week or two ago he told me I ought to smoke a pipe. I argued that I became ill when I did and besides, pipes kept falling out of my mouth. Slack jawed, I explained. But Ben countered with the soft sell and before I could say "latakia" he had fixed me up with'a "kit." A neat, cellophane-windowed box containing a dandy little imported briar and a package of a mild (but exotic) cavendish blend. For $2. So, you see, I am a pipesmoker. Again. I have encountered nausea only twice and developed mild heartburn once and am learning to keep the pipe in my mouth. Looks as though I have it licked. I believe, too, that it has improved my profile. Already I have been accepted into the office circle that congregates between deadlines to discuss the finer aspects of this briar game. "Pipesmoking is relaxing," Ben had assured me, "and it is enjoyable." Relaxing? Never, Ben Goldberg. I must admit, I find myself worn and weary at the end of a pipesmoking day. Goodness, the routine of loading a pipe, emptying it, cleaning it and all the other rigmarole poops me but good. And for some reason I just can't seem to keep the blasted thing burning. I have been averaging one book of matches to each bowlful of tobacco. I don't find this one bit relaxing, but I suppose once I get the hang of it my match-tobacco ratio will settle down to a more realistic balance. But, Ben, I must agree I have found some enjoyment in the whole business. Why, I get the biggest kick ever working the briar over with that fine Pipe Tool after each load of the mild blend of cavendish. And Ben assures me that as I move into the big time there is more pleasure in store for me. Pipe caps, precision reamers, a pouch for the pocket and humidors for home and office, pipe lighters, pipe sweetener, pipe racks, holsters, holders and heaven . knows what else, can be mine. To say nothing of the thousands of blends of tobacco and the countless varieties of pipes. All available to the journeyman puffer. Yes, my pipesmoking future is bright. There is so much to look forward to and the thought of it all just thrills me. Enjoyment, as Ben said, and perhaps even relaxation will be mine. Once I get the hang of it. But now, if you don't mind, I think I'll just light up a butt. t Heartburn, you know. .SYDNEY HARRIS We Want To Be Western Heroes It is .easy to deplore the popularity of Western programs on television, just as it is easy to deplore anything we find deplorable. What is harder -- but more rewarding--is to seek the reason for such popularity. ' "'" I think that most entertainment, like most dreaming and daydreaming, represents wish-fulfillment. The programs we enjoy symbolize what we would like to be and do and have, in the dark unexpressed recesses of our minds. Why is the Western so popular with the male adults? Because it takes them back to a simpler time of life, when "good" and "bad" were more easily identifiable. Because it .presents a life of action and purpose to men who are desk-bound and basically purposeless. Because it offers a symbol of masculinity and individuality to men who feel themselves faceless · cogs in a relentless machine. No other explanation will fit. It has nothing to do with "low mental powers," for quite intelligent persons enjoy this sort of daydreaming. It has nothing to do with "mass culture," for the forms mass culture takes correspond with the unconscious wishes of the personality. I know a 50-year-old man who once confessed to me that he put himself to sleep nightly by playing over in his mind a football game he had recently seen--in which he was the hero. He would kick and run and pass his team to victory, falling asleep exhausted and triumphant. Much of our passionate interest in football and baseball and other spectator sports is more a projection of our subjective fantasies than an objective ap- 'preciation of the game itself. Experts tell us that most fans know little about the finer points of a game, and care less. They are just looking for something bold and aggressive they can identify with--for the loss of a sense or personal identity is one of the major tragedies of our industrial civilization. Entertainment has become a substitution activity in the modern world. Men watch Westerns not because they are stupid or uneducated but because a part of them hungers for heroic deeds and the simple separation of good and evil--in a word, for the visions of childhood. Before we can have an adult culture, we must develop enough adult personalities, who find in art an expression of their highest needs, not a reflection of their unrealized childhood wishes. Until then, most entertainment will continue to be a sedative, not a stimulant. Copyriirht I960 DEAR MRS. MAYFIELD Sh,e ? s A Dirty, Careless Woman DEAR MRS. MAYFIELD: To you, this may seem trivial. To me, it is terrible. My twin brother and I were brought up in a home where cleanliness was Godliness. He has married a dirty, careless woman who leaves vegetables to spoil, throws garbage in a heap in the back yard and leaves bottles of milk to sour. : My twin's wife is a late sleeper, talks over the phone for hours, gads around everywhere and anywhere. My brother works hard and frequently overtime. He would enjoy having his friends in his home, but is too tshamed to ask them. As "a result, he stops off to visit them on the way home. They have a small son of 3, and while he was ill my wife and I went over to see him and were shocked to find things in such a filthy state. She doesn't care for the lawn or sweep the porch. What can be done? - DISTRESSED TWIN DEAR DISTRESSED TWIN: I blame your twin brother, if only a little, for puttine un with *uch a distressing situation. Not that he should be a tyrant or » wife-beater, but he should be stern and positive with his wife, and let her understand clearly that lie will NOT live in a pigsty. If he simply will not or cannot take this stand, then at the k of being your brother's keeper you Can report the matter t Juvenile Court. It will investigate and, if the premises a healthily filthy and dangerous to a small child, this wife will be giveiv a severe taFking to and warned. MOLLY MAYFIELD * * * GOOD EVENING »· Altagraeia Duarte-- M«Jly. * * * When Silence Is Nerve-Wracking DEAR MRS. MAYFIELD: I know my. husband is having a love affair, but I can't get him to admit it. I know deep within my bones that he is tn love vith his secretary. I've seen fhvffi together, and it stands oat on both of tftem. I've seen him with her after hours. I Vnow that is why he "worVs Itte." "Let's bring flris out in the open," I've pleaded, but he frefnses to answer. It might help to tell him, though, that since he won't talk, you will. Tell him you cannot go on this way and that either he declare himself or you will be taking a definite leave of absence, which won't end until he does explain. This is bound to bring forth something--even though it's something you dread to hear. MOLLY MAYFIELD His Belching Is Bewildering DEAR MRS. MAYFIELD: My boy friend has the terrible habit of belching in public. I've tried everything to cure him, but he just goes right along belching between breaths. * We are engaged and plan to marry. T love everything else about him. But these belches are beginning to bewilder me. PLENTY AGITATED DEAR PLENTY AGITATED: _ Surely if he knew how you felt (and, doubtless, everyone else), he'd make some effort to restrain himself. And if you know him well enough to be engaged to him, you surely know him well enough to say what you think about his burps. However, if he actually can't, help it, he should see a doctor, who may be abie to give him medicine to help. Right now is the time to stand your ground. You'll find it easier to influence him here and now than after you're married. MOLLY MAYFIELD Feudin' Gets Vicious DEAR MRS. MAYFIELD: My friend and I would like to use your column to air our feud. Quite simply, she stole my cook and viciously accused me of trying, in retaliation, to steal her husband. I will say nothing about the cook-stealing. -By any code of ethics, any woman who would stoop so low in times like these is a wicked person. As for my attempt at abducting her husband, that is just plain nuts. If I had tried, I would" have succeeded But who wants a fat old tomcat? What steps can I take, Mrs. Mayfield, to help this former friend see herself as others see her? INSULTED DEAR INSULTED: None of tis ever really sees ourselves as others do. You should know this by now. But it is never too late to start studying our hire I'm not withra a hundred miles. I Jove him and it's straining more than my nerves. .
