/ Noble Life Goals One of the most refreshing quotes of the fall season was to be found on the sports pages of a Little Rock newspaper recently. Fred Swinton, coach of Little Rock's Horace Mann High School, was the man who said it and it is useful to again bring to mind the redemptive features of competitive athletics. This is an age where everyone must be fitted to some matrix, it seems. A Negro for example, has a difficult time being nothing more than an American wage-earner. He must be (a) a militant; (b) a segregationist; (c) a moderate; (d) an Uncle Tom. There is far too much emphasis on labels in our society. A municipal election in another city recently was hailed as a victory for "conservatives." It well may have been a victory for conservatives, but it is the experience of most City Councilmen that one simply plugs away at the issues as they arise and it is very difficult to be conservative or liberal while attempting to solve the problems of a growing city. And so it was with some relief that the quote from Coach Swinton was relayed via a Little Rock newspaper. Noting that Horace Mann High School is faced with a dwindling football squad and a diminishing student body (the school may be merged soonY, Coach Swinton refused to go into the sociological implications of integration. "I'm a football coach; not a politician," he said. He may have said (or implied) considerably more and that is that it takes a tremendous amount of effort in today's competitive society (and football coaching is more competitiva than most) simply to stay even with the economic game. Most people—Negro and white—simply want the opportunity to do what it is that they do: whether it is farming, or manufacturing, or clerking in a store. In spite of the pressures of staying abreast of the changing economic scene, most of our citizens manage to remain cheerful and charitable in their outlook. In spite of the false prophets which are found in every color and of every political persuasion, most Americans aren't interested in extremism. They want to pursue a life which they believe can be good, comfortable and rewarding. Along the way, most of them would like to feel they have helped someone else and have raised a Christian family. These are noble enough life goals. Hollywood Highlights By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - The report that James Coburn was shopping for a house in Tangier caused no stir in Hollywood, which has grown accustomed to stars who live in far-off places. Once upon a time, all the screen luminaries lived here. Most owned homes in Beverly where stars can enjoy the quiet life, play golf an tennis in the smogle'ss warmth and return to the studios in a half-hour via air. More an more stars are' following the lead ot Red Skelton, who comes to Hollywood only for his television show. Among those who spend a large part of their lives in Palni Springs and its environs: David Janssen, Jack Benny, Bob Hills or Brentwood, but a few [nope, Desi Arnaz, Frank Sina- rustics lived in the outlying i tra, William Demarest, Chuck reaches of the San Fernando j Connors, Phil Harris and Alice I Faye.

In addition, however, to that important consideration, there is the ever-present need for Kennett to become better known, for its many and exceptionally-good services to be used by more and more persons who have only heard of our city. The recent NAACP state convention at Kennett drew praise from officials of that organization. Mayor Sol Astrachan was informed by state _NAACP officials of their delight with accommodations, services and courtesy found in our city. The planned Jehovah's Witnesses meeting, expected to attract some 650 persons, will ba of great benefit to the city, and if readers noticed, Kennett was selected by this church organization because of its accommodations and its hospitality to visitors. Next year, the Southeast Missouri Dental Association and its allied professional groups will meet in Kennett This rather large meeting will be held in Kennett simply because local doctors submitted an invitation to the group. It was as simple as that. All of these meetings add much to the city, and Kennett has much to offer hi the way of convention services. Perhaps it might be well for business, professional and municipal groups here to form a city convention bureau, staffed by volunteers, which could devote serious thought to ways in which Kennett might attract additional meetings throughout the year. Such a bureau could not only be active in soliciting conventions but could work with association officials once the meetings are here. This is an important, and financially rewarding service which can attract extra business and additional friends. Up to the present time, the workload has fallen on the shoulders of only one man, J. Randall Hardin, the executive secretary of the Chamber of Commerce. Hardin does a good job, but he has other duties, not the least of which is industrial development. He needs help, and there should be others in the city, including hotel and restaurant owners, who can provide it. The creation of a Kennelt convention bureau would go a long way in promoting the city as the ideal convention city for many more organizations and associations than are presently coming here.—Daily Dunklin Democrat (Kennett, Mo.)

Landy Convention Is Useful Bid Jim; "Why don't you take over today and talk about Alvin Landy? I started to say 'your old friend,' but he was my old friend, too." Oswald: "Alvip was every bridge player's friend. In 1947, when he came from Cleveland to run the American Contract Bridge League, he took over the thankless job of getting the league going again after the trou- bless of World War II. The 200, 000 members today reflect how well Alvin did his job. We will all miss him, and tournaments just aren't going to be the same Alvin was also a great player, although his duties kept him from playing in more than one event every two or three years. The Landy convention will be one monument to him but his real monument is the ACBL."
