RIDDER Chief, l r P-T Waihlnglon Surfu WASHINGTON -- The ad-j ministration is having a rough time of it with its foreign-aid bill, .so rough in f a c t that President Kennedy has interested himself personally in the matter and is interviewing an almost endless stream of congressmen and senators in an attempt to wangle the necessary votes. Word has gone out to the legislators that the President would be delighted to talk to them about foreign aid.

This sort of thing has been a perennia joint of conflict between the executive and the legislative branches of the government * * * * FOR OBVIOUS reasons, the executive finds it easier to make plans if it knows sev eral years in advance h o \\ much money will be available If, for instance, it knows nov, that numbers of dollars wil be available this year anc next year and the year afte for the building of some dam then the work can be plannd and started in more order! fashion. Long-range authorization also make it easier to dea with foreign governmen! which a r e understandably worried that while the money may be forthcoming this year, who can promise them that it will also be forthcoming next year? As matters now stand, the answer is no one. Thus o t h e r governments a r e constantly a f r a i d t h e source of supply will dry up and they will be faced with some incompleted project anc no way of completing it.

DAVIS I WASHINGTON UPt -- The ordinary beer can is only 4% inches long, and 2% inches in diameter. Empty, it weighs less than three ounces. Yet it's become an enormous n u i s a n c e , thanks to people who throw cans by the thousands onto the roadsides of the country. They've enraged fanners, igercd and saddened beauty vers and robbed the tax- ayers. But now comes the word iat the appalling mess creed by these p e o p l e and must be spent each year to clean highways alone. Countless millions more go to clean up after thoughtless citizens who befoul beaches, streets, parks and the countryside itself. There's a health menace, too. Litter creates breedin; places for disease - carrying insects, rats and mice. * v * * KEEP AMERICA Beautifu was founded primarily by l e a d e r s in the industries whose products contribute to litter -- such as paper ant box containers, w r a p p e r s , Missouri may have hit on a n e f f e c t i v e punishment; those found guilty are sen tenced to clean one mile of roadside, in person. Officers report there are no repeaters All states have laws against strewing of litter, with signs proclaiming fines of SI to as much as $1,000. This has been going on a long time, with varying success. In the year 1612 warning signs against trash tossing were put up in London.

A few y e a r s ago, near Roma, Tex., a full truckload of beer cans was collected in ten days on one three-mile stretch of Urs. highway 83 Incidentally, it was found in Texas that riders in conditioned cars are more careful than most about litter They don't like to open thei car windows. AS IS INEVITABLE in an situation which gets Amer cans stirred up, slogans hav been coined.

Ohio poster hopefully advise against b ing a "Scatterpillar." There's even a band tune, appropriate for cleanup parades, entitled "The Litterbug Rag." One of the most helpful developments, which may be expanded on by the Advertising Council - Keep America! Beautiful campaigners, is the litterbag. This is a sort of inside-the- car wastebasket. You drop your travel trash into it and the next time you stop at a service station or picnic table you can empty it. More than 12'/2 million lit- terbags are given away each year by business and service! groups. There are more than' 50 types on the market. Yet there are still millions of drivers who just roll down the window and chuck the stuff out. * ·* * NOT MANY PEOPLE arc arrested for littering the highways and fewer still are convicted. · DOWNTOWN LONG BEACH .'TIL 9 P.
