Can You Spare a Million? 5 It seems to be in order at this point to suggest that Arkansas citizens who hope to find some measure of peace and '"•Contentment this summer might view a.s a first step the cancellation of their newspaper subscriptions. News from • the state's capital has been of the sort [ which leads otherwise good citizens to "' to burn their state income lax forms. Our most recent "incident" or "state oversight" (in view of the scan' rial-free nature of our state govern| .tnent) involves alleged price fixing of asphalt which has been sold the state over the years. There are those who say that state officials privately have ''put the cost to the state at somewhere ' 'between $1.5 million and mbre than ?3 ..million. As costs go, this is just an- j other little item in state government which evdently someone feels needs at• tention. Perhaps it is a good thing that the Highway Commission is checking '. into the matter. ',-:• Equally as disappointing as discvo- • ering the state may have lost millions, : however, is the knowledge that another ' American industry may be destined for \ the embarrassment and humiliation of . being caught with a hand deep inside •. the cookie jar. Asphalt price rigging • (if any) is certainly devilish enough, ' but is a rather mild form of commer- ' cial brew as compared to the antics of '•"ML* Of OtL» other segments of the American private sector of recent years. If there ever was such a thing as morality in the American business world, what ever has happened to it? The American indusrtial giants ar« not fulfilling the role of greatness which history has been poised to cast upon them. This is too bad. It is especially disappiinting for those who want to believe the Andrew Carnegie image which every great businss is eligible to inherit. America is faced with a thoughtful reexamiriation of its system of values after which it may want to assign a new priority to money. Although money and the profit motive made America great, in a manner of speaking, money is merely good, not, please, God. Money must rank, in any worthy personal or industrial value system, somewhere below love, integrity and reputation. On the other hand, it probably would rank above altruism, which often simply isn't possible without money. American industry is only seldom troubled by making money. It has done that and will continue to do it. This matter of bending, breaking and reshaping the traditional morality of this nation is a much more profound matter. Medical-Research Reporting '""," Dr. Michael DeBakey, the Houston surgeon '•^ho has implanted "artificial hearts" in two ...patients this spring, has come, under fire .'.from his colleagues for what they say is a "^violation of ethics: publicity seeking. The doctors reportedly have reproached . .t>r. DeBakey for his advance announcement " of an operation, press conferences, TV cov- "erage and hour-by-hour bulletins on the patient's condition. We think this criticism is justified. '....Research teams have been studying the "heart and artificial hearts for years. But 'riot until Dr. DeBakey's work, and possibly ;, because he is so often billed as a super- surgeon, has the research been so glamor- , .Sized by the press and public. , Heart disease is the nation's No. 1 killer. ' It cripples thousands, leaving them with "half" lives—half as certain, half as active, . half as enjoyable. Because the hopes of so many lie in the success of an artificial heart, it is wrong to give so much buildup and publicity to a technique still in its infancy and still in the research stage. When doctors encourage publicity and newspapers give heart implants such sensational coverage, too many heart patients have their hopes raised, dashed and sometimes stretched beyond the point to which science can deliver now. It is up to doctors to put themselves above temporary fame. And it is up to the press not to pressure doctors for every details of medical research. (Research it is, for if a live, convalescing patient is the measuring stick, Dr. DeBakey's operations have been a 100 per cent failure so far.) Sometime in the future heart patients will have reason to sheer. Until that time their emotions should not be played upon, —Lexington (Ky.) Leader. Could Hatch Candidates • : The Atlanta Journal says a group of scien- ? "tists apparently has nothing better to do than r sit around trying to trick quail eggs. The re- pbft said scientists in England have discovered 1 that quail eggs about to hatch send sig- --iials to each other so that all may hatch ' "simultaneously. For a couple of days before ^ hatching, eggs touching each other emit little "sounds. If one egg is about to hatch before the others, he gets the signal and wails till ~ they are ready, the scientists claim. That •way the quail can hatch in a covey.

At all other tables North was allowed to play one no - trump. The play for two no - trump was just as easy as the play for two spades. In fact a couple of no trump declarers managed to make three. The three of clubs was opened against them and the nine - spot returned. In each instance East held back his king and never managed to make a trick with it. Show Beat by Dick Kleiner HOLLYWOOD (NEA) A few months go, when The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. was first announced, Robert Vaughn told me he would never appear on It. And he said it with an air of finality, too. I saw him again, just a few days ago, on the set of "T h e Venetian Affair" at MGM and he had changed his mind. Both he and David McCallum, the men from U.N.C.L.E., will make a few appearances on the spun-off (that's a spin-off that has sold.) "I'll do one or two of them," Vaughn says now. "I didn't want to, but they wanted me to, so I finally agreed — in return for certain concessions in another area. The other area is the area of money." , i HAVEN'T PIAY&I> WITH ONE of C I9M by NEA, IK.

Vaughn has an accompaniment of beautiful women — Elke Sommer, Luciana Paluzzi and Felicia Farr. For Elke, this marks the first time she has ever died in a movie. It is a milestone, of sorts And, apparsntly, she did it well because she's going to die again in her next, "Deadlier Than the Male." That will be shot in London and Rome. After that's over, she hopes to do "Belladonna," which her husband, writer Joe Hyams, will produce. "Then I have two more commitments," Elke says, "a n d then maybe I can start to have a family. I want to have children while I'm still young enough to enjoy them." By BRUCE BIOSSAT Washington Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. WASHINGTON (NEA) Some Negro militants are arguing these days that American foreign policy is basically geared to the defense of the white nations against the interests of a predominantly nonwhite world Certain leaders of CORE and the Student Non-Violent Co-or- dinating Committee (SNICK) appear particularly attached to this theory. Obviously, the idea takes them well beyond specific criticism of our participation in the Viet Nam war, though that fits in. Stokely Carmichael of SNICK calls U. S. operations in Viet Nam a "war against colored people." The general proposition that we are pursuing some sort of segregationist foreign policy ougiit to be examined. First, if we are doing this, it seems to be singularly unappealing to some of the white nations we are supposed to be saving from the black man and the yellow man. France disapproves of our Viet Nam policies Though Britain supports us, powerful dissident elements speak out. Many other Western lands voice doubt of one sort or another. Hundreds of millions of white people living under communism hardly seem in support of our "wttite foreign policy."

In the course of the present does not see U.S. policy as "an- j war, as in Korea, we are kill- ticolored," no matter how seriously they may disagree with it on many counts. Sources in touch with some of tbese leaders say fiiis is an aspect of American policy which seldom if ever occurs to them. As for Asia, countries like the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia even allegedly neutral Laos, see us not as enemies but as friends and allies. We are the ing many Asiatic people. But so, in large number, are the Asiatic aggressors. It is useful, in fact, to note what nonwbites have been doing to nonwhites in the last few decades. In World War II, the Japanese killed or wounded more than 3 million Chinese, plus untold numbers of Southeast Asians. In Korea, Communist defenders of the millions of Ko- j forces killed 45,000 South Koreans, island Chinese and Viet-|reans in combat and accounted namese who do not want to live under communism. Neutral India and Burma and demobilized Japan see our role in Asia in a less friendly light. Yet all would turn inevitably to us and any supporting white and colored allies we could muster if their borders were seriously breached by foreign assault. Only India, exhibiting a curious self - deception, likes to pretend that this would not be The foreign policy some CORE and SNICK leaders say is "anticolored" has drawn the United States into war on Asian soil twice since World War II — in Korea and Viet Nam.

Brandstadt, M.D. Q — I give my children 25,000 units of vitamin A daily. Now I'm told that too much of this vitamin can be harmful.. In what way is it bad? Am I giving my children too much? A — Since the daily requirement of vitamin A is 2,500 to 5,000 units, the amount you are giving your children is excessive. Fortunately, there is a wide range of tolerance for this vitamin. On child who developed chronic vitamin A poisoning :ook 50,000 units daily for seven months. Another developed acute poisoning after a single dose of 350,000 units. The poisoning is manifested by ioss of appetite, itching, falling out of the hair, hemorrhages inder the skin and pains in the tones and joints. The sensible way to give your children vitamin A is in the form of sucn foods as milk, fortified margarine, eggs and liver. Q - Is an appetite • building vitamin available? A — People have an exaggerated idea e! what vitamins will do for them. Thiamine (vitamin B-l) will restore the appetite only if the poor appetite is due to a lack of this vitamin in the diet. None of the other vitamins has a specific affect on the appetite. Thiamine is found in fish, fowl lean meat, milk, whole grain cereals and enriched bread. Cy- proheptadine (not a vitamin) is sometimes prescribed to stimulate the appetite but this should not be done until the cause of the poor appetite has been deter- mind. Q — Are any vitamins lost when foods are cooked or processed? A — Leafy vegetables lose vitamin C by exposure to air in prolonged storage. This loss can be minimized by refrigeration. Vitamins B and C are lost by cooking. This is in part a result of exposure to air and in part Blythevllle (Ark.)

We, standing at Kie border, are their guardians. In the first Indochina war, begun by North Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh, 250,000 Vietnamese civilians died along with thousands of anti-red soldiers. Then there is the recent incredible horror which saw Indonesians massacre perhaps as many as 500,000 Indonesians and Chinese in less than four months. We may have much to learn and much more to do if we are to understand and give effective help to Asians, Africans and other nonwhite peoples. But it would hardly seem, from history's record, that it is we who hold their lives and their interests cheaply. the result of discarding the cooking water or pot liquor. This loss can be minimized by putting the vegetables to be cooked in a small amount of water that is already boiling and by avoiding prolonged cooking. If soda is added to the cooking water the loss of vitamins is greatly increased. When foods are dehydrated they lose practically all their vitamin C but in commercial canning or freezing of fruits, vegetables and fruit juices as now practiced there is no loss of vitamin 6 and C. Q — Can a person get too much vitamin C by eating lots of oranges? A — No. Vitamin C is not stored in the body. Amounts in excess of your daily needs are quickly eliminated. Large amounts of citrus fruit, however, upset tbe digestive organs in some persons. Please send your questions and comments to Wayne G. Brandstadt, M. D., In care of this paper.

Felicia Farr, Jack Lemmon's wife, is another of Vaughn's girls in "The Venetian Affair." This time she plays a relatively good girl; in her career, she has gone back and forth between goodness and badness like a pendulum with petticoats.

I just work for the fun of it — I'm certainly not working for the money. What I get is just a pittance, because we're way up in the 90 per cent bracket of our income tax." Jerry Thorpe is d i r e c t i n g "The Venetian Affair" and he's another new - to - features director. He's done many television shows but this is his first crack at a full - length movi«. He took the cast to Venice for two weeks of location work before they returned here to do the bulk of the filming. "I loved working in Venice," Thorpe says. "Nothing is impossible there. You ask them to try something different and they'll try it. Ask the crews here to try something different and they'll start telling you why it can't be done that way." Thorpe is trying several new things in this picture. Naturally, he wants it to be one people will talk about and there is one sequence that should accomplish that end — if it survives th« final cut. The reason it might not is that it is pretty gruesome. In and among the killings is one in which a man is the victim of an explosion. Thorpe shows the face of this poor soul and the audience will watch the fac« change from flesh and blood to a skull. "We do it in almost a subliminal pace," Thorpe says. "The* entire sequence is done in only 18 inches of film. The face that changes belongs to the producer of "The Venetian Affair," E. Jack Neuman. It's his debut as a face that becomes a skull.
