"I have never been in Germany. I'm not German," Keith told newsmen in clipped English. "I would not be ashamed to be German. I'm Scotch by race." Asked about Hitler, Keith replied that he "was what you call president here. More than that I don't know," German authorities said, however, that they want to investigate Keith further and were informed by Panama that his release would not prevent them from submitting evidence in an extradition hearing. Government Minister Fabian Velarde ordered Keith freed on the basis of U.S. and Panamanian documents establishing that the peddler,, who says he was born in Webb City, Mo., 61 years ago, had been in Panama Since 1942. Authorities said Keith's diary shows he arrived in Panama in 1940, went to South America in 1941 and returned in 1942. which requested his arrest. C. E. Bogan Dies at 86 Charles E.

Muskie o Maine, chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, said Johnson wab "quite fair" in saying that lie expects responsible criticism but objects to violent dissent. However, Sen. Albert Gore D-Tenn,, a Senate Foreign Rcla lions Committee member, dial lenged Johnson's contention tha national security is involved ii the war. He said Johnson en gaged in oversimplifications which "create dissent rathei than allay it." Sen. John J. Sparman, D Ala., a supporter of Johnson's policies, and Sen. George Me Govern, D-S.D., who has been critical of them, agreed with the President's appraisal tha steady progress is being made in the war. But McGovern said there has been no comparable progress in "the political problems of trying lo build a (Soulh Vietnamese) government lhal can win public confidence." DAVIS by Abigail Van Buren Steady Boyfriend Has No Manners think a girl's steady boy friend (almost her fiance) should be allowed to come to dinner at her house as often as he wants to? Mother has set a limit of three limes a week. I say Leo should be wel- qome here every nighl as we plan to marry as soon as one of us gets out of school and gets a job. Daddy has gotten very hateful about it and calls Leo a freeloader behind his back. ' He says any boy who will accept a dinner invitalion more than once a week withoul inviting the girl out, even for a hotdog, is a bum. Leo isn't a bum. He just doesn't have the money to take me out so the only time I get to see him is when I invite him here for dinner. He used to drop by lo study every evening and he'd stay on for dinner. But never more than five ni. c :hts a week. How can I get my parents to make Leo welcome any time? LEO'S STEADY DEAR STEADY: Leo may be your "steady" ... but he hardly qualifies as a "fiance." I think three times a week is plenty. And if you see Leo only when he's feeding his face at your table, maybe three times a week is too much. DEAR ABBY: I am in the sixth grade and I hate my teacher. If Miss K catches a girl with her skirt rolled up at the top to make it shorter, she makes her unroll it, and tells her if she catches her with her skirt rolled up again she will call her mother. Abby, a girl can come to school with a real, real, short mini-skirt, like eight inches above the knees, and Miss K doesn't say a thing, bul the girls with their skirts rolled up get the dickens. I don't think this Is fair, do you? HATES MISS K DEAR HATES: Girls who ,wetr mlflMkirti to idwoJ obviously do so with their mothers' knowledge and ap proval. But if a girl's skirt is rolled up, she's probably showing more leg than her mother sent her to school showing. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I live in a very nice new apartment building where most of the tenants socialize with each other. We're not newly-weds. The average is 50. Well, last summer a new craze hit this building. All the women went on diets. Now, I'm all for it,.when it's done sensibly, but about six of these women, my wife included, have gone off the deep end. No cocktails, no sweets. Nothing but eggs, meat and cottage cheese! I will admit, they do look better, but it hasn't improved their dispositions any. My wife has lost 25 pounds since July; (I call her "The Twiggy of Menopause Manor.") My problem? How can I get a decent meal around here? HUNGRY DEAR HUNGRY: What do you weigh? If you're just right, be a good guy and satisfy your craving when your wife isn't around. Otherwise, do yourself a favor, and join her in meat, eggs and cottage cheese.

Band Director Bob Lipscomb I Button, No Satellite TV For Awhile TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) It's unlikely in the near future that those communications satellites whirring across the heavens will beam television directly into your living room, a communicatons expert says.

DOT To close this column with a chuckle and a grin, I share the next few lines with two fellow journalists (?). First, Staff Writer G. J. Drott: "One day not long ago. George Ford, chief of police, ( and myself and about 10 other | and who did it turn out to be? men were having coffee in Dewey Neeley ... chairman of annual conference of the Ala bama Broadcasters Association.

"I went into an auto agency and the salesmen hurried up to me thinking I was going to buy a car. "I. hit him.with the question, Moore's Cafeteria.

"He answered, 'If I lose, it is.'" Second, Wire Editor Jerry K. Rogers, who handles the "Your Two Cents' Worth" column. ! A few days ago I was in Osceola getting comments o n what residents down there thought about Republican Guy Neweomb's chances of beating out a Democrat to replace Took the Young Democrats Club." And as I understand it, Guy (if your reading), Dewey had "no comment."

Cox, one of even commissioners, voiced his approval of editorializing on television and radio programs, noting that broadcasting can be "an instrument for social reform and public enlightenment." where I come from." Services By INTEGRITY CHRISTIAN INDIVIDUALISM In the sight of God each man exists as an individual and he is dealt with as such. He cannot change this by joining an organization in the hope that he will be dealt with on a group basis. He does not become, a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ by affiliating himself with a company of believers. There is no institution that can mediate between God and man. No man should try to hide from God in an organization. You cannot identify yourself with God by becoming identitied with a church. Christian individualism as a way of life for the active believer in the Lord Jesus Christ is being practiced by many who have discovered that their loyalty to God's truth has brought them into conflict with the practices of the organizations that call themselves churches. These organizations settle matters of great spiritual importance by majority vote, feeling that the voice of the people is the voice of God. Decisions and programs are often handed down from someone above, and the individual is supposed to submit to these no matter what his personal convictions may be. Most men revere organizations, and they worship crowds and numbers fo such an extent that they cease to have any personal feelings. They are persuaded that if a thing is believed or practiced by many people it must be true and right and all others should conform to it. Thus they cease to have any real personality or character because all their springs of individuality have dried up. Personality and character are built by the exercise of discrimination, evaluation, and choice. If these personal faculties are not used, they grow blunt and dull and finally wither away. When this happens a man becomes depersonalized, a human automation. This is supposed to be an ideal situation in relationship to man's spiritual activities. In the realm of religion men are supposed to be depersonalized, to act, to think and move as a group, not as individuals. If they ask questions, they must be stock questions, and they are expected to receive stock answers without further discussion. They are not supposed to exercise discrimination or to evaluate anything. This is an intolerable situation for the active believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. Why should he fight with some great organization in order to take one step in advance in the truth? He is constantly urged to read and study the Bible, but he is subjected to abuse if he finds anything in it that contradicts the traditional creed. Thus the only path open to him is one of Christian individualism. In this way of life he can fulfill his place as a believer in this unbelieving world. Otis Q. Sellers.
