Legion Must Not Look Away One of the best of all summer youth programs is the American Legion's nationwide summer baseball effort. It is . aim-in- the best of all because it not only affords youngsters in the upper teen-age bracket with a challenging activity, but it also provides a summertime rallying point for community pride (when the team is winning) or an opportunity for intra-coni- nnmity sympathy (when the team is losing), And so it was dismaying to hear a .veteran umpire of Legion baseball resolve never to offer his services whenever certain Legion teams visit here in the future. This one is no ordinary umpire. He's one of the fairest and most knowledgeable ever to work here. He strenuously objects to the conduct of certain teams and their man- agers. He feels they are unnecessarily abusive to the umpires and are setting a bad example for fans and players. (By contrast, this should make area fans even more appreciative of gentlemanly Dwight Williams wh6 seems to win far more than his share without courting the displeasure of umpires.) No American Legion post would condone action by one of its teams which would discredit the program. But evidently some Legion posts either are looking the other way or no longer can control those who are controlling the team. Traditionally, however, Legionnaires have never been timid about submitting their precepts. Obviously, it's time some of them brought their creations back under control. Dream the Impossible Dream You need look only as far as Memphis to get an idea of the sort of explosive growth which is upon America. The Memphis airport—one of the most carefully planned in the world—was built in 1963. It was thought to be adequate to serve that city for many, many years. Today, it is operating at near or above capacity. Tomorrow, some fear, it will be too small. Although not every facet of American and Mid-South commerce will match the spectacular leap forward of air travel, this is but another indicator of how things are moving. Getting ready for growth is the task of today's urban leadership. Locally we've either been extremely lucky or blessed with considerable farsightedness at leadership levels, or both. Had Blytheville not launched its paving program several years ago, the city now would be bathed alternately in mud and dust. When work first began on the municipal airport, there weren't half a dozen locally-owned airplanes. Today, Ozark Airlines seeks permission to make the city a stop on its Memphis St. Louis run. When Blythevilie's Chamber of Commerce began the first tentative moves toward acquiring and developing industrial acreage, it had only one prospect for the site. This week, a special Chamber industrial development team is visiting half a dozen prospects in the upper middle-west. So far, so very good. However, leadership must not ignore the portents which this activity signifies. Those communities which don't dream even more impossible dreams will not participate in the exciting tomorrow America promises. *•••••••• ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••' Show Beat by Dick Kleiner HOLLYWOOD (NJSA) You've got to admire Don Rickles' timing.

Who's fault is this? I don't blame the bandits who stole the money. I don't blame their co-conspirators. I don't blame the people who knew this was going on, and kept their mouths shut. We have had this type of filth in the world since the beginning of time. I blame you and I. 1 blame you and I for being stupid enough to allow the tentacles of this vulturous octopus to reach into every pocketbook in the state. Take a look at the State withholding tax on your next paycheck stub. A part of this money already has been stolen from you. If some poor slob steals five dollars from a citizen, chances are, he ends up in jail. The worst that will happen to these "million dol- lar thiefs" is to be made to pay it back. I would like to see them put out of business, and put in jail where they belong. A crook is a crook—no matter what type of mask he may wear. A little tip from me to you. When your "friendly politician friend" is palling you on the back, and telling you how well things are going—check his other hand. Chances are, it's in your wallet.

This principle should be followed almost all the time when defending against no trump. When there is a trump it is most important for you to look dummy over carefully and see if a shift to another suit does not give greater promise of success. East wins the club opening with his ace and applies the code word ARCH. Analysis of fiie lead shows that his partner has probably led fourth best and most likely away from, the king. With queen - jack - nine he would have opened the queen. Review of the bidding indicates that West should hold some cards outside of his club suit but not many. Count of potential winners shows two in dubs provided that West did not lead from a si* card suit. How can this contract be beaten.' The answer is that two tricks must be found outside the club suit. If partner has the ace of diamonds it will keep. If he has a trump trick it will keep. BIOSATT AND CROMLFY IN WASHINGTON Negroes Make Big Strides (Not in March) in 0V Miss Have you noticed the juxtaposition of commercials on television this summer?

WASHINGTON (NBA) The Mississippi the civil rights marchers are plodding through las changed significantly on the racial front. But the marchers are having very little to do with Veteran observers in the state say the march probably will jroduce only a negligible- advance in Negro voting registration. Thep even suggest that [eft to themselves, Mississippi Negro leaders like Charles Evers of the NAACP might well produce better gains. Since the Voting Rights Act of 1965 took effect, some 30,000 additional Negroes have registered in Mississippi — lifting the total to 132,000. By one estimate, the figure may rise to 175,000 by the next statewide election in 1967. There are other changes, some measurable in figures, some not. All but a score of Mississippi' 149 school districts have indicated compliance with federal guidelines on school desegregation. According to one observer: "The situation can be de "Wtll, W/IM I wot a /ittle girl I mommy with tht scribed as good, healthy tofcen- sim.. .Mississippians bave under taken desegregation in some places where people said il would never happen." Fourteen Negroes attended the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) in the 1965-66 year, and 30 are enrolled in summer sessions. It was here, of course, that James Meredith, initiator of the 31-esent march, broke the <»lor }arrier in 1962. This autumn, the first significant introduction of Negroes to public school teaching rosters occur in desegregated schools. It will be a tough hurdle for many white parents to get over. * * * On the job line, many changes have taken place. In the year since the nondiscriminatory hiring provisions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act took effect, most manufacturers have employed more Negro help and upgraded what they already had. Business leaders and organizations labored hard to make the changes acceptable. Industrial plant facilities like restaurants are desegregated. Only occasionally has there been trouble. Similar hiring changes are noted in retail stores and other establishments. Buses are integrated. So are many public restaurants and hotel facilities. Recently a Negro medical fraternity held a ball in Jackson's best-known hotel, banquets are common. July 1, only 17 of Mississippi's 132 hospitals had signed up for participation in the program ss of this writing. On the school front, dissatisfied whites are turning more and more to private schools to avoid desegregation. The White Citizens' Councils, badly thinned down after failing to halt t5ie change in public schools, are lending themselves to this move as part of a revival effort. While Negro registration is up, only 35,000 to 132,000 voted in recent primaries. Democratic party leaders are hearing that Negroes next year may win state legislative seats in as many as four counties, but they are not publicly acknowledging the changing prospect. Symbolic of resistance at the political level is the fact that today former Gov. Ross Earnett stout segregationist, is the overwhelming bet for the 1967 governorship nomination. His candidacy got a whopping boost frorr the Alabama primary victory ol Mrs. Lurleen Wallace, wife of Gov. George Wallace. Barnetl talks Wallace for president in 1968. Business leaders bent on promoting a changing Mississipp image are united in searching desperately for an alternative to Yet changes of this sort are j Barnett. Right now they^ have being seriously resisted, too. ~ -.-.... *Though the figures may change some in file final days before- Medicare takes effect none. But even if he is electee again, the educated guessing is that Mississippi will go on changing.

If fishing tackle out of moth balls, the hook has caught you instead Whether you drop a line otf a bridge, wade through racing rapids or track down your prey in some kind of a boat, you have ciiosen a sport that gets you out of doors and provides time for quiet reflection. The most common fishing accident is snagging a finger or some other part of your body on a barbed hook. This may occur while you are trying to bait a hook when you are sitting in a rocking boat or when reaching for a lure in a box full of tackle. Many such accidents can be prevented by keeping a small cork over all barbs that are not in use. Casting is potentially dangerous t« your fellow fishermen. Some of the hazard is removed from this practice by using an overhead motion rather than a sidearm motion. If you prefer the latter you should move to a safe distance from your companions. In removing the hook from a fish you should hold tbe fish of a fish don't try to pull it out. The hook must be pushed forward until it emerges from your flesh then snipped off with a wire cutter. Your doctor is equipped to do this and give you antibiotics and a tetanus toxoid booster to prevent infection. If you are fishing from a boat be sure to have life belts available. Don't overload the boat and be sure to heed radio warnings of an approaching storm. When your boat is in motion keep a watchful eye out for other boats, swimmers and submerged rocks. Sunburn is another hazard you must make every effort to prevent. Carry insect repellent and a first - aid kit with you. Q _ What causes hemorrhoids? What makes them itch? Blythevilta (Ark.)
