When the wind is low in velocity, people complain of burning eyes and sore throats. The state's anti-air pollution law is goading Detroit automotive engineers into research on means of c o n t r o l l i n g exhaust fumes. This makes the case of James F. Lathers, aged 59 and described as ;i "bearded inventor" of Imperial Beach, Calif., interesting and hopeful. He has been working on an a n t i - s m o « device, and recently was given two t r a f f i c tickets lor producing "excessive ex- h a u s t ." Prok'sting.

The t r a f f i c bureau voided the summonses "in fur- t h e r a n c e ot justice," and Lathers admitted t h a t while his i n v e n t i o n is not ready for the market, it has poss i b i l i t i e s in rendering automobiles both noiseless and smokeless. This makes him a man to watch. If his invention fulfills its promise, there should be statues put up in his h o n o r in every city--including ours--where residents suffer from the noise and f u m e s of gas buses, jalopies, hot-rods and trucks. Not an old-fashioned equestrian statue, but one of a bearded gentleman proudly at the wheel of a f a n - t a s t i c vehicle belching pure steam which ushered in a new era of pleasant u r b a n living.

His Chief Justice Warren held to this tradition in the historic and controversial 1954 decision doom- ug school segregation.

So says a woman physicist, who for almost 20 years has held L\ key job in one of the nation's major research laboratories. "You ask about job openings," said Dr. Elizabeth A.

A critical mine which docs not accept everything at face value. And, careful, honest powers of observation anc calculation." The woman physicist no longer is a rarity, she said, anc many of them have contributec or are contributing vastly to man's knowledge. "Of course, you can start wit! Madame Curie," she said, "bu today, we have such women as Dr. Chicn-Shiung Wu, whose experiments with parity have won ler international acclaim,' 1 am Mrs. Maria Mayer, for her studies on Ihe "shell" of thc atom's nucleus.

WASHINGTON (UPI)-A friend of mine in the baby doctoring game has called my attention to a couple of items which he re- ;ards as significant developments in the healing arts. .One is a report on a plan jointly sponsored by the American Medical Foundation and the Sears Roebuck Foundation to help place octors in small towns. "1 didn't realize that my knowl- dge of mail order department :ores was so far behind the lines," my friend commented. Isn't it wonderful that you now a.n order a doctor from Sears toebuck? "The catalog should be most in- eresting. No more waiting in doc- ors' offices. Buy now, pay later, omplete assortment of 19G2 mod- Is available." My friend added that he also ·ould be interested in seeing ome of the letters that customers rite to the complaint depart- lent. He speculated that they light read something like this: "Dear Sirs, "Last month I ordered one ob tetrician, complete with instruments, but through some mixup n the catalog number we got an ar, nose and throat specialist in- lead.

Is this the key of most monotone motheres as they sing lullabies?

"If that is the case, then my sense of pitch must be off. It seems to me that the last time I listened to an abdomen with a stethoscope, the tone was a per- "ect C-sharp."

( A McClure Newspaper Synili- ·ale Feature*. vas not quite the kiss of death hat former Gen. Edwin A. Walker conferred on the organization known as Americans for Constitu- ional Action. Not quite! Walker testified before a Senate :ubcommittee investigating freedom of speech within the armec services. ACA was identified the standard by which the resigned general judged the patri- do the organization considerable harm. To help set the record straight: It should be remarked that Walker did not get from ACA any o] the information on which he basec Kennedy administration. He al leged that there was in Washington an unwritten policy of collusion and collaboration with the International Communist conspiracy. Americans for Constitutional Action got shoved into the Walker show because he advised troops under his command in Germany Io check the ACA record of candidates for political office before voting. His complaints about collusion and what he called the decision - making apparatus in that Justice Brrnnan should have Washington were vague and un- iiipporled. There is nothing vague about ACA ratings of members of Congress. Whether (he ratings are sup lorlcd by adequate evidence is i judgment eneh person must nake for himself.

Directors include former President Hoover; Charles Edison, of New Jersey: Felix Merely, "of Maryland; and Loyd Wright, former president of the American Bar Association. Moreel slated the organization's political philosophy in a statement on publication of the firsl ACA index grading members of Congress on their voting records. "If a n y o n e has wondered," Moreel said, "why the socialistic virus has been penetrating our oversized, centralized government, resulting in higher and higher taxes, bigger and bigger public debt and more people pushed around by government than ever before in U. S. history, he con find the answer in the ACA in-! dex." The index reported lhal 14 U.S. senators and 108 representatives! of both political parties could be' counted on consistently to supper sound money, local self-government, individual liberty and private competitive enterprise. There is an ACA consistency index lating to 77 U.S. Senate record votes. A senator who voted right )y ACA standards would grade 100 per cent on consislcncy. How this works out can be shown by comparing Ihe ACA consistency grades of four notable dcmocrallV senators: Sen. Harry F. Ilyrd, Va., 112 per cenl; Sen. Frank J. l.auschc, Ohio, (II; Sen. Hubert 11.
