Toward Involvement .'Slany organizations might take a look at'the Farm Bureau and study its .rather complete involvement in political affairs. At its annual meeting?, this group adopts resolutions which deal not only with agricultural problems but with topics as diverse as right-to-work laws and driver cduca- tiof;' programs in the public schools. This is a healthy condition and is anpther evidence of the political independence of the fanner. Which brings us"to the observation thai, some organizations and clubs attempt to be apolitical, presumably in the interest of fairness. There is something to be said for non-political objectives, we suppose, and where several candidates ;ek an office it might be different to schedule all of them for a club meeting and this would wound our collect- ive sense of fair play. However, there is nothing particularly wrong with being political. The most interesting programs most clubs have to offer revolve around political personalities or topics. Unlike the County Farm Bureau, which submits its forthright resolutions to a vote of the membership, most organizations have no reason to attempt to draft a set of of political principles. Therefore a mildly political atmosphere would not necessarily create any deep or lasting schisms within a club. By and large, the point is that politics is becoming more and more vital. This is another way of saying that it is more and more important for every American to be involved, if only in the most modest manner. "Arise!"

Dear Sir: Last week I made my first visit to Blythe- villc ... to see the town, to do a bit of shopping and window shopping. As women do, my friend and I got involved and forgot the time and the meter ran out of money. We were so far away down the street and when we finally got back in view of the car and close enough, I saw the red ticket on my windshield! When I removed it and saw that it was a welcome note instead of a ticket, I simply e could not, for a few minutes, believe that there was a place left in the whole country wiiere such a gesture of hospitality still could be a realily- I felt like shouting to all "Yankeeland, '•Sec wiiat the South is like?" And although there have been other expressions of kindness and generosity and friendliness and hospitality shown me, it was at this point that I knew all over aeain that these are my kind of people and why I had wanted to return "home." I have been out of the South just long enough to have learned to appreciate it. Thank you very much. I will come back and I will mind my parking meter more closely. Sincerely, Doris Austin Kennett,- MO. Hollywood Highlights /ituii hers Of OiL Sobering Thought Orval Faubus, having been an Ex for almost a year, finds his political timing a little off: It took him until Thursday, two whole days after Halloween, to raise the "definite possibility" that lie might run for governor. That formerly biennial scare joggles the old hangover left behind by his last administration. The scandals come jarring back: The secret meetings that put the state government into the apartment-renting business at a ridiculous cost to the state. The energetic non-building of the Pine Bluff Expressway. The private horse show that the governor's pals financed with $20,000 of public funds. The roads — plus four bridges — that just happened to get built near land owned by Orval Faubus. And the roads unbuilt in Southeast Arkansas. The faugressive performance of the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission and, worse, its attempt to hide it with phoney figures. The outright soliciation of funds by a public official — a governor, at that — for his own private use in the form of a showplace overlooking Huntsville. The annual alibis for not enforcing the law at Hot Springs. The outright suspension of state law when BIOSSAT AND CROMLEY IN WASHINGTON By RAY CROMLEY NBA Washington Correspondent As WASHINGTON (NEA) a result of unannounced it pleased Orval Faubus not to require license tags by the legal dale.

By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - The Hallmark Hall of Fame, which has captured more Emmies and added more distinction .to television than any other series of programs, begins its 17th season Saturday night with, an "opened-up" version of "A Bell lor Adano." The special is based on Paul Osborne's 1944 Broadway play, which was based on John Hershey's novel. But the television program will not be limited to indoor sets. ' . "It has been opened up," explains, star John Forsythe, using the trade expression employed in the. transition of plays to the film medium. "We shot some scenes down at the harbor, in the hills, all over. Television viewers demand this nowadays, especially with the advent of color and the popularity of movies on TV. You can no longer play a show, like this one entirely in a studio. "Otherwise the play is mostly intact. Roger Hirshon, who adapted - it for- television, also went back to the Hersey novel for added material, particularly the humor which wasn't as noticeable hrthe play version. We have used nothing from the movie, which starred John Hodiak and wasn't- very successful" --.--•• Forsythe plays Major Jop- pola, the Italian-American officer who tries to govern a small Italian-Village after it has been liberated by the' allied armies. 6 role was created by Fred' ric March on Broadway. . . The NBC special marks the actor's return to television after, the disastrous "John. Forsyth* Show" of a season ago. .The experience appears to have caused no trauma for Forsythe, a remarkably well-adjusted ac- , tor. "It was my own fault," he commented, "for letting myself be talked into it. I made the mistake of not demanding a . strong producer to iwatch over the show; I thought perhaps I., could keep an eye on things myself, but that's impossible when you're starring in a series." Forsythe himself had a five- year hit in "Bachelor Father,", which he admits "made me. rich .beyond my wildest dreams of avarice." For that, reason he can afford to call his shots, such as "A Bell for Adano" and his recent film, "In Cold Blood."- WOKIDALMAM FACTS I careful studies by reputable scientists it is now believed by high Pentagon officials that U.

When this happens it is — I very hard to avoid getting the indoor air too hot and dry. As a result, the skin is likely to become dry and itchy (winter itch), especially at bedtime. Even greater is the danger of excessive drying of the mucous lining of the nose and throat. This lowers the resistance of these tissues to infection. The relative humidity in-a steam • heated room may drop to less than 15 per cent in contrast to the optimum of 40 to 50 per cent. Unfortunately, the lower the humidity the higher you want to turn up the heat to maintain a comfortable skin temperature. Humidifiers built into furnaces and water pans attached to radiators are of some help put enough moisture into the air. Many portable himidifiers that evaporate water without heating it are fine and are especially recommended for the bedroom. When the outside air is cold, your inside air is too dry if no moisture condenses on your windows. Q — Is Medrol effective for allergies? What are the effect! of its prolonged use?

Medrol should not be given for a prolonged period because it may cause peptic ulcers, collapse of the bony spine, waterlogging of the tissues and interference wi'th body defenses against infections. It will not prevent pregnancy, but it should not be taken during pregnancy because it interiors with the adrenal function of the fetus. Q — Our son, 18, has Marfan's. disease.
