As you might expect, the lowest . earners are those who have the ;, least skill, do the poorest work (fcen- erally), and have practically no political voice at all ... or at least have no -political voice which is likely to be :' -'heard in Little Rock.

The reward! of low ply art beiriff reaped by many Arkansas business places in the form of absenteeism, in- effecieitty and transience. The outlook for these faceless artd nameless low wafe-esrnerg is even more discOuraJirtj! however when 6rt« considers the increased minimum wsfces which art being imposed on th« remainder Of America by federal law. This means m6r* inflation and less purchasing power by those who do not participate in the increases which accrue by vritue of federal action. Several of the state gubernatorial candidates have evinced an interest in a state minimum wage, but chances are that when the Legislature completes its exclusions from it, these same people (who, it must be remembered, have so little political leverage) will be earning their 50 cents an hour, but enjoying it far less because of higher prices. For Sentimentalism ,'•; Only the grossest sentimentalist, we • suppose, would get exercised about the ^loss of the pregnant doe in Walker Park. However, it must touch the conscience a bit when one considers that examining veterinarian attributed ^'the death to the citizens' callous disregard for the timidity and fear of the animal. Evidently, the doe, still terrified in her surroundings, was hit by rocks and BB pellets until the excitement became more than she literally could bear. So she simply lay down and died. For the record: it is against the law to shoot BB guns in the city limits. Show Beat Kleiner "Arietta* M toe editor are welcome*.

(Signed) SP-4 Raymond Birmingham Pleiku, Vietnam Of How Much to Drink for Snake Bifes Now it turns out that the grizzled old prospectors who carried a flask of whisky "for anake bite" weren't necessarily secret sippers or just fooling themselves. Dr. Herbert Stahnke, professor of zoology at Arizona State University, has been conducting considerable research into the effects of alcohol upon rats which have been bitten by poisonous snakes. He conducted the same sort of studies with scorpion venom. He not only discovered that whisky helped lower the number of deaths but that certain types of alcoholic beverages were better than others. Scotch and vodka most significantly lowered the death ratio. Grain alcohol made little difference at all, but tequila and brandy Increased the percentage of deaths from the venom. Dr. Stahnke started the research because he found that stress made the venom more lethal and presumably the relaxing effects of some alcoholic beverages lessened the the danger. This might bring up some future advertising campaigns. However, Dr. Stahnke also warned that what happens in rats may not necessarily be true for man. And besides, the amount of alcohol used in proportion would mean at least a quart of whisky for a man nipped by a cottonmouth. The hangover might be worse than the snake bite effects. — Green Bay (Wis.) Press-Gazette. By RAY CROMLEY Washington Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. WASHINGTON (NBA) There's a common pattern in the emotional violence of the American student protest marches and sit-ins — whether against Viet Nam, the draft or university rules. The violent pitch usually follows prolonged chanting or singing. There is evidence the students are systematically worked u p by experts. . . The same pattern was noted by an American reporter in the 1960 Tokyo riots against Presi JACOBY ON BRIDGE NORTH AQ1032 WQJ75 4KQ4 497 EAST « 4754 V1098 ¥432 4J9832 45 4AQ +J108632 SOUTH (D) 4AKJ VAK6 4A1078 + K54 Neither vulnerable Wert North But South 2N.T.

The itople 1 way would be to discard the ten of diamonds and play East for the ace of clubs. The complicated way would be to discard his last low club and play West for the ace of clubs. Strict mathematics favored the simple play. East had started with six clubs and West with only two but South studied that early discard of the eight of clubs by East. East was a very good player. Why would he go out of his way to say he held the ace of clubs? Was it a double • cross? Or a triple • cross?

The line has to be drawn someplace, and maybe she's the girl who can do it. Jack Kruschen's mustache is going the way of all flesh, if, indeed, mustaches are flesh. Anyhow, for only the third time since he grew it, he's shaving it off, sacrificing his upper lip for his art. . He. has a good part in "Caprice," a new Frank Tashlin film with Doris Day and Rich- 'ard Harris. He had to look younger for it, so off went the mustache and a dozen pounds, and he's darkening his hair and getting wardrobe of tight-fitting clothes. "A new image," Jack says, preening a bit. Kruschen, one of Hollywood's in a phalanx of locked arms. At each end, leaders with whistles blew a rhythmic one-two-three- four beat. They all jogged in unison to it, chanting ... to the beat ....

Occasionally, a few would stop and gather around me to express a liking for America, democracy and individual Americans like me. A Communist Party USA front organization article declares: cally oriented folk songs "make more lasting impression than 20 lectures on the same subject." A medical researcher into the subject says: "Electrical recordings of the human brain show ... certain rates of rhythm can build up recordable abnor- jmalities of brain function and explosive stales of tension..." Other research indicates chants can compel whole crowds to accept political beliefs. The "Singing stirs emotion, and] hypnotizing ritual gradual emotion makes people act..."

Martin Landau had challenged me to name five good pictures made in the United States in th« last two years. It isn't easy. "If there is a good picture made here," Landau said, "it's by mistake; it's purely an accident." He wasn't «nti - American, merely citing the fruits of what he Considers an erroneous concept of moviemaking here. "How do they make movies here? A studio buys a property, generally from a hit play or best • selling novel. It assigns it to a producer, who doesn't even have to like it, just make it. The same thing for a director. They cast a few stars in it, and they don't particularly care if they're rigiit for the roles. They hire a film cutter, who may not even know what the director wants to do with it. Somebody in New York is writing the music, independently. "There is no over-all direction to the project. In Europe, a picture is the work of one man — it's his idea, he usually writes it, produces and directs It, sees it through from Beginning to end. It has cohesion. It may fail — many do — but at least it has the mark of one man on it." Landau's wife, Barbara Bain, will star this fail in a new CBS series, Mission Impossible. This springs from a feature film origi- nslly written for Landau — the hero was first named Martin Land — and he'll appear in nine of the first 13.
