Indifferent and Afraid In his television talk from Jonesboro last week, Gubernatorial Candidate Kenneth Sulcer showed himself to be a candidate who has properly eitend- ed to his homework. It was Mr. Sulcer who plodded through the plethoric work of the 1965 Arkansas Legislature and, to the amazement of the Governor and the Legislators, come up with the pension plan which shocked the state. The fact that Mr. Sulcer is willing to read laws makes him a troublesome candidate for many. Thursday night he was biting the hand which refused to feed him when he turned on the down county political leaders. Since Mr. Sulcer himself has been a down county politico, we would imagine he has been counting on some support from that quarter ... although Mr. Sulcer's association with The Group was somewhat tenuous and strange. In the Arkansas Legislature, for example, Mr. Sulcer was never the sort The Group could count on. He usually voted for the truth as he saw it. This left him outside the mainstream of the Arkansas Legislature on more occasions than one. Now, Mr. Sulcer claims that some city officials in Osceola are overlook- Ing a law or two in the conduct of certain city business; that is, he feels some officials are conducting official business as an official, on the one hand, and private business as a businessman selling products to the city on th« other. This same legal point was raised some years ago in court by a young West Memphian. He accused oa« or more members of the City Council there of selling goods and/or servicfti to the city. It is the only time in recent years anyone has gone- to an Arkansas court on behalf of the taxpayers in such a situation. Although th« young West Memphian's citizen suit was an artistic success, as a pragmatic thing, it was simply awful. When last heard from, the citizen in the citizen' suit was leaving West Memphis. Generally, however, nothing happens when Arkansas officials are found to be outside the law an inch or two. Very few county judges are following the old law which requires publication of county warrants. Probably even fewer of them are anything but indifferent to Act 52 of the first extraordinary session of the 1965 Arkansas Legislature, which stipulates that county judges will purchase all items costing $1,000 or more on a bid basis. This quite sane piece of legislation was sponsored by our own veteran Legislator, L. H. Autry of Burdette. Few county judges are fooling around with this sort of thing. And darned few people mention it to them because most of our good folks are either indifferent, or frightened, or both. h Dick Kleiner Urban Utopia: Old, New One of the surest ways to stir up a civie fuss is to start tearing down something historic to make room for something modern. Tradition versus practicality. Sentiment against commercialism. ' So serious is the struggle in city after city that the U. S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare has joined with the privately operated National Trust for Historic Preservation to form the Preservation Advisory Services Panel. The panel—a group of top architects and city planners—has selected Salem, Mass,, as Its first laboratory experiment and Is now working to see if historic old landmarks there can be preserved as the city meets demands of modern urban living. Both hard-nosed realists and misty-eyed conservationists should be pulling for th« panel to come up with a satisfactory solution. You can't park cars in a lovely old tree; shaded home or a historic old courthouse, but you seldom take groups of school children to see a parking lot.—Waynesboro (Va.) New- Virginian. BIOSATT AND CROMLEY IN WASHINGTON Life In Red China Is Non-Funny Joke . "Comes the revolution we'll all eat strawberries and cream," says the revolutionist in an old joke. "But I don't like strawberries and cream," replies a bystander. "Comes the revolution, you'll like strawberries and cream," retorts the revolutionist. The above bit of stale humor has become 'gospel truth in every Red-dominated country, .and Communist China is the newest state to prove the now non-funny story. The Peking People's Daily, a Red newspaper, has announced that anyone who opposes Premier Mao Tze-tung may expect to be purged. The .warf-jng includes high government officials and old party workers. Obviously Mao's views must be the views o! the people, whether they like them or not, and this should dispel the idea that any Red .State is really a people's government. Hie establishment of dictatorship in China can be duplicated anywhere In the world whenever a people allow any single man to exercise unlimited powers in their name without placing strenuous checks upon him. —Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville.

JACOBY ON BRIDGE pa * By BRUCE BIOSSAT Washington Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. WASHINGTON (NBA) Notes from the crowded political trail: Seasoned onookers in Alabama and Mississippi insist that retired Gov. George C. Wallace, whose wife Lurreen is the Democratic nominee to succeed him, has his cap set for a presidential try in 1968. Since Lurleen is favored to wiri in November, Wallace would have the necessary base — as governor in fact if not name — from which to launch a presidential campaign in the Old South and the industrial North. Analysts already are Speculating that Wallcae might easily pick up, as a minimum, the five Old South states captured in 1964 by Repubican Barry Gold| water.

The reason is mat when your partner opens the bidding with one of any suit but spades you are in the "Hanged if you do, hanged if you don't" position. If you bid you can get into trouble. If you pass you can get into trouble. It is a "book" pass but any winning player is going to respond one spade. He knows that he is asking for trouble by bidding but he figures he is asking for worse trouble if he passes and he also knows that if by some lucky chance his partner can raise spades everything may come up roses as a result of his spade bid. The roses bloom today. He responds one spade and North raises to four spades. West Opens the king of hearts. South wins with dummy's ace and plays ace and king of spades.

"Gtt nadf for another 'protest marc*'—ft's bedtime!" not all of these states — South money for HOLLYWOOD (NEA) Everybody who is anybody, ~ IB a sprinkling of nobodies democracy's sake, showed up for the premiere of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" And the consensus — the nobodies as well as the anybodies - was that Elizabeth Taylor is now the girl to beat for the Oscar. The critique I liked best came from Eddie Rissien, a vice president of Filmways; "I think," he said, in all non- seriousness, "that this property would make, a helluva TV series for Donna Reed." Melvin Belli, who may be the most famous lawyer of the age, now has a weekly talk show on a local Los Angees television station. He'll stay with it until the fall. If, by then, it has become national he'll continue; if it hasn't, he'll drop it. Belli believes that professiona men shdud expose themselves to television so the public can see what kind of people they are and so the youth of America can have an idea of what real lawyers and doctors and engineers look like and how they behave. "Any good trial lawyer," Belli says, "ought to make a good host for a talk show. Interviewing people is like cross-examination, except that you have to be faster on television. In one trial, I had to wait'six weeks to get the answer I wanted. You can't do that on television. Belli says he was offered the chance to play the judge inthe new Debbie Reynolds - Dick Van Dyke film, "Divorce American Style." But he didn't think the script was too good and, especially, he felt the part of the judge was undignified. "Tony Curtis," he says, "who is an old friend and my adviser .in these things, advised me not Senate race. Gre-. ficially that he spent $1.4 million to do it." GOP. Wallace Flexes Muscles For 1968 Presidential Bout nier is said to have good money I on his campaign, sources outside Alabama— For some months now, White House correspondents dogging President Johnson's heels have been bivouacking in San Antonio rather than Austin when he goes to his ranch. They like tbe town fine, but their joy ends right there. Though San Antonio is only five miles farther from file ranch than Austin the newsmen say they feel totally cut off"Might as well be in Detroit," says one. Official briefings are skimpy, limited sometimes to routine! announcements the reporters think should come from -federal agencies. In Austin, they occasionally encountered a Johnson crony and thus preserved an illusion of n e a r n e s s- to> LBJ, though he was 60 miles away. The most embittered reporters do not believe "complaints about Austin facilities" were the real cause of the switch. They think the President wants them more isolated. Few have been to the ranch in many, many months.... Not since the days of maver- Belli also has a show on Since his victory, industrialist j ABC radio. Despite the fact that Shapp has been tangling more,all these adventures are fairly Sen. John Sparkman appears tojick "Big Jim" Duff, former gov- be in fresh peril. The expected Republican nominee for his seat, John Grenier, former Goldwater lieutenant, is rated a stiff threat.. Sparkman had thought the worst was over when an earlier prospective challenger, GOP Rep. James Martin, bowed out and chose to run for governor. Among Martin's reasons was bis inability to get top business ernor and U.S. senator, has there been so much turmoil in Pennsylvania politics. The cause Milton Shapp, surprise winner of the 1966 Democratic governorship nomination. Leaders in both parties are still shaking their heads, and trembling a little, over the masterful and costly television blitz that put Stoapp over the top by some 50,000 votes. He reports of- or less constantly with the regular organization Democrats he beat in the primary. He demanded that the huge Democratic state committee delegate to him the authority to name his own state chairman. He was turned down. Next he announced his own candidate for the job in a head- to-head test with the regulars, and said if he lost he'd pick his own campaign team. In a vote, his man was losing by 3% to 1 when he got up and urged unanimous support for the organization choice. Whatever happiness that brough to National Committeeman David Lawrence and .to Shapp's. 1966 running mates (who also Ducked Mm), it was short-lived. Shapp went to Philadelphia and promptly reclared he was going, it alone. Having just sold his company stock for upwards of $10 million, he can doit. Los Angeles' Mayor Samuel Yorty, wiio pressed Gov. Edmund G. (Pat) Brown close for the Democratic governorship nomination in early June, is often said to be pointing for a 1968 race against incumbent Republican Sen. Thomas Kuchel. One top California Republican perhaps only half seriously, suggested recently that Yorty, who appeals to conservative Republicans, might leap the party fence — on the theory that he'd give Kuchel a harder test in a GOP primary tha nin a general election. recent, Belli says the Ruby case the Doctor Says Although asthma is a disease affects many adults, in most cases it has its onset before the age of 5. The first sign of asthama in most cbidren is recurrent cough. Later the coughing is associated with wheezing. It is important to remember, however, that all wheezing is not due to true (allergic) asthma. It may also be caused by inhaling a nut, popcorn or other foreign body. When this is the cause, removal of the offender through a bronchoscope cures the wheezing. In many cases of asthma one or more members of the victim's family have asthma or some other form of allergy such as bives or hay fever. An environment of emotional tension is an mportaat factor in other cases. The Immediate cause may be animal dander, house dust, a )ollen or some food. study was made recently | Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association Wayne G. Brandstadt, M.D. on a group of newborns who were closely related to asthmatics. One half were given toe usual varied diet and the other half were given no foods containing cow products, chicken, eggs or wheat in their first nine months of life. In the next 10 years, five times as many on the varied diet developed asthma as in the group with the restricted diet. Another factor in causing or aggravating asthma is repeated attacks of respiratory infection. About 50 per cent of the children with mild asthma outgrow it by the time they are 15. If 'hey have an associated eczema or hay fever, tiieir chances of outgrowing the asthma are poor and if the victims are girls their chances are not as good as if tbey are boys. Those who have severe or frequent attacks usually have the disease throughout their lives. The first step la the treat- ment is to find and eliminate — especially from the bedroom — the immediate cause of the attacks. This may be a chair stuffed with horse hair, a feather pillow, woolen clothes or a pet dog or cat. An often-neglected part of the treatment is to see that the child gets enough fluid. Daily doses of potassium iodide may help by loosening the secretions of the bronchial tubes. For acute attacks inhalation of adrenalin through an atomizer usually gives dramatic relief. If the condition is persistent, small daily doses of cortisone may be required and In some children desensitizing injections may be helpful. If your child has asthma you should avoid overprotecting him because this 'will add to his emotional problems as he grows older. When he starts to go to school you should tell his teacher about his condition and he should be allowed to take his medicine in school when it is needed. Arlington National Cemetery is on the site of what was once the estate of George Washington Parke Custis, grandson of Martha Washington. Federal troops took possession of the property during the Civil War and it later became a military cemetery. — he defended Jack Ruby, th» man accused of killing Lee Oswald — did not provide the impetus for his show businesi career. "If anything," he says, "the Ruby case slowed me down because the American Bar Association is down on me worse than ever." Hollywood is still the land where quick stardom is possible. Six months ago, Katherine Justice was just another pretty girl from Mingo Junction, Ohio. Now she has the leading female role in "The Way West," with Kirk Douglas, Robert Mitchum and Richard Widmark. "I'm not scared," the lovely redhead says. "My hands always shake like this!" She got the part after produce Harold Hecht saw her one and only television appearance, on The Big Valley series. She has not entered into the Hollywood social swim, so her achievement is the result of talent and beauty, not public relations. "My press agent," she says "feels that I have to be seen around to get ahead. I only do as much of that as I think is absolutely necessary but not one bit more." Katherine Justice Is an orphan. When she was 1C, she was living with step-parents in Columbus, Ohio. Her stepfather hadn't been legally adopted died and her stepmother — she was "considered not capable for several reasons." At this point in her young life, she was adopted by the Justices. They had heard about the little girl, because they had already adopted her real broth- them, Katherine hadn't even known she had a brother. That would make a pretty good picture, too.
