Christmas Every Day If the opening of the annual American Toy Fair in New York gives you visions of sugar plums and tiny reindeer, you aren't getting the idea. The toy manufacturers are not merely getting an early start on Christmas, they are seeking to increase their industry's rate of gain by improving sales in the non-Christmas selling months. This will be accomplished, they hope, by promoting toys as "an essential tool in a child's rounded development." Educational, that's the current key word in the toy business, and the show presents an abundance of items in science fields, from astronomy to zoology. The standard dolls, tea sets, Western gear, trucks, cars and stuffed toys are not neglected, but the show p l a i n l y reflects the industry's belief that the modern nipper is pretty sophisticated, which he is. For parents the news from the toy show is not too encouraging. The manufacturers themselves are reported to be concerned about the increasing number of items that are high priced even by the standards of this affluent era. Also there is evidence that, despite the educational atmosphere, the most popular toys will continue to be the ones that make the various l o u d noises so soothing to the childish ear. And nothing much is said about durability. Apparently the new toys will be as vulnerable as ever to happy mayhem. Arctic Test One of Uncle Sam's arctic ice islands has strayed off t h e reservation. It's not much as a piece of real estate, but this particular island, populated by six polar bears, 11 American scientists and a marooned American journalist, could become important because it has drifted into waters claimed by the Soviet Union. Russian-manned ice islands have intruded into American waters in the past without incident, and Washington is hopeful there'll be reciprocity now. It will be a test of whether Russia and the U. S .can keep the cold war's troublesome tensions away from scientific research in the arctic. Although it seems unlikely the. Kremlin would m a k e this oversized ice cube a new hot spot in the cold war, we advise those 11 scientists aboard to keep cool. Let Washington worry about the Kremlin. You j u s t keep an eye on those polar bears. No Statue Cities of South America are studded with eques- t r i a n statues of Simon Bolivar, San Martin, Bernardo O'Hi^gins and other heroes who freed the continent from' Spanish rule more than a century ago. So it is quite natural that Argentina, in naming a Buenos Aires square "Plaza Canada" as a gesture of friendship, should want a statue of the "liberator of Canada" to install in it. W i t h a touch of frivolity, Lester Pearson, leader of the opposition at Ottawa, raised the question in the House of Commons the other day. Howard Green, minister of external affairs, had not heard of the request for a statue, but said Canada was supplying a $700 painting to be hung in the city hall of Buenos Aires and was shipping maple trees to be planted in the Plaza Canada.

Such feeling must be nourished by the court's complete detachment, in fact and appearance, from political entanglement.

And it is in these ireas, as the 19GO election and iubsequent Republican surveys ;howed. lhat the Democrats roll ip their huge majorities. Despite the legalistic language and the strained semantics, the Supreme Court has injected it- selt into partisan politics as clearly as if it were a Democra- c board of strategy. Senator 'aul H.

Wilson "Oh to be young again, now thr.t spring is hero . . !" i Unitcil Press International WASHINGTON ( U P I ) -- Buried somewhere in last week's key an- louncemcnt about civil rights was i solid vote of confidence in the Kennedy brothers, John F. and iobby. The announc'ement was that five ' the hard-nosed organizations seeking to enforce integration lave joined in a new and calmer ipproach to their objective. This Iocs not signify that these orga- lizations have abandoned tougher methods including Ihose which oft;n invite violence. But the new ipproach is significant. II is especially significant in n political sense. The five organize ;ions have joined the Southern Regional Council in a program to increase vole registration of Southern Negroes. Thnt is the Kennedy admini- jtralion's basic approach to the iroblem of civil rights for Nc roes. It also is the moderate, on - violent, nun Â· abrasive ap- roach. It is obvious that not just round the corner, but far down he road, there is one decisive, ome-grown solution of the South's roblem of racial integration. The solution is for Southern No- roes to register nnd to vote. Ex- Â·rmists do not concede this as solution. Integration extremists seem to prefer force, (even vio- :ncc) noisy action, newspaper , ubllclty, federal troops with hay- mots in Ihi! streets, as in Little ick. John F. Kennedy was clod- president on n platform pi'om- ng just ;iboul all any inlcgra- ni.sl could want, including the k i n d of action the extremists \\oulil like. For good political reasons, President Kenni'dy has not (Irmnndcd that Congress translate Hint pliil-j form into action. To do so would invite great trouble, jeopardizing his legislative program and further weakening the Democratic party in Southern stales. The administration's approach The more accl ',,." a [ 0 to the civil rights problem, obviously, is by way of the ballot box and Negro registration. Brother Bobby occasionally has used his power us attorney general to apply federal pressure on reluctant Southern communities, notably by ordering U. S. marshals into the field of local heal. This has helped convince Negro leaders that the administration is on the level. That conviction enables these Negroes to accept tho political necessities that compel Kennedy to avoid an all- out civil rights showdown in this Congress or, perhaps, in any Congress. The Kennedy brothers have worked for the confidence of U.S. j Negroes and they've got it. This is a political asset of immcasur In January 1959, Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson introduced in the Senate a civil rights bill.

I place in the exceptional category a note I received from a young lady, castigating me for something I had written. "If I wore you," she said, wouldn't-be so hasty in making rash judgments." That certainly is sound advice and hereafter I intend lo make rash judgments only after long ami careful deliberation. As a mailer of fact, I would recommend the same policy to The frills apparently will be more members of Congress, some of whom seem lo exceed the speed limit in their rush to rashness. A case in point is the statement that Rop. Frank J. Becker, R-N.Y,. issued upon learning thnl House-passed appropriation bill provided almost $130,000 lo build IS new guard booths at the While House. "What sort of luxurious frills could Ihcy possibly put into those liny cubicles which would cost an average of $10,000 per boolh?" Decker asked. "That's more than some people S|*nd for a whole house." He promplly marked It down is a mailer of "bureaucratic squandering" and let it rest there. I wouldn't call this a rash judg ment on his part because that might be a rash judgment on my part. I only say that if he hat been less hasty, he could have obtained a more complete answer.

Despite heavy losses, they /ere able to retain their numbers hrough new recruits. Through blackmail or persuasion, every peasant farmer became a potential informer or ;uerilla. Then the British sent, in Sir Jerald Templer, a tough soldier, o act in the dual role of high commissioner and commender- n-chief of the military and police :orces. Templer operated on the theory lhat guerilla forces could exist only on the land, exacting food, intelligence and recruits f.'om the inhabitants of terrorized, isolated villages. Hence he instituted a ruthless wlicy of scorched earth. At the same time, 423,000 Chinese "jquatters" were removed Tom isolated jungle areas and resettled in 410 new villages. The harshness of the British tactics was criticized widely, but they halted the Communist ad- ance. Last week, UPI correspondent Merlon D.

The Hollywood Scene By Vernon Scott HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - When 'inegar faced William Demarest [roans about boarding a stage coach in his television Western series he ain't acting. He probably is the only living actor who vividly recalls bounc- ng around in the danged contrap- ions shortly after the turn of the century.

Bill his two brothers and two eminine entertainers composed a 'audeville troupe that couldn't lave made the grade in Beloit, IVls. but entertainment starved miners in the wilds of Utah would suffer anything to break the monotony. "The problem was getting to the small towns to put on a show 'or them," Demarest recalled Tom a lunch table in the revue studios commissary where he costars in NBC's "Wells Fargo." "We'd take the train from Salt Lake City to Sandy, Utah, and r rom there on it .was strictly itage coaches to little mining :owns of 1,700 to 2,500 populaiton.

"I never rode in anything so uncomfortable. They jar your .eeth loose, and those movie stage coaches are exactly the same.

Once Demarest and his group irrived in town they couldn't be sure of a small opera house or roomy saloon to use as a theater. "One time we performed in jutcher shop--it was the largest place in town. We charged a person or 75 cents if the customer brought his own chair. 'There wasn't much money in those early days. We hardly broke even. Once my brother Rube got together enough money to buy a gold crown for his tooth r ith a diamond in it. But we hac to hock it later." Demarest, now 70, carried a gun with him on those excursions into wilderness. He also carried a cello, so help me Pablo Cassels. "It was a part of my act," Demarest explained. "I still play it damned well. Rube played the aiano and brother Joe the violin. After the show we'd play for a dance. "I used the cello every day but I only found use for the gun once. [ fired it out of a window at some *uys who were throwing mud at me during the performance. I don't think I hit anybody though. "You could jam six people into one of those old stage coaches.
