After the Warm-Up ••••••••••••••*•**•••••*•••••••••», & Has it been one year or two? At «l8y rate City Council has studied com- i&inity antenna television for months and months and tonight, if all goes s&fcording to plan, a franchise will be awarded. In an unofficial warm-up •'session last week, City Council voted j£l (in what was called an opinion "pojl) to.award the franchise to a corpo- ' !s«tion headed by Harold Sudbury and jJris brother, Municipal Judge J. Gra- ; Ifam Sudbury. *"" The word has it that Council's of- -fioial meetings are only warmed over Aversions of the warm-ups. Therefore, ; if seems that the local corporation to- -iilght will be granted the CATV fran- "cHise. _iri The city's long pre-occupation with ' f '&frTV has been one of the more pecu- djar events of recent Blytheville political life. Among the strange aspects of CATV was the offer by one out-of"State group (which was considering '/going after the franchise). The offer "-{.to a Blytheville man): 10 percent of •itire corporation in return for his support and goodwill in the quest for the "franchise. An odd business. ff. But. thanks to Council for getting "around to this piece of business which has been pending for oh, so long. * * * While still in the throes of generosity, let us not overlook the blocks and blocks of new paving which is being put on the city's streets this summer. So far, the quality of the paving done by the city in recent years seems to be rather good. One exception may be that part of Broadway just north of the Post Office which seems ready to fall into the storm sewer underneath it, However, the new paving, ironically, is being laid at a time when some of the old (but not by paving standards) concrete is giving every sign of sinking into.the rich Mississippi County earth which underlays it. These are streets which were built by private developers who had their subdivisions annexed to the city. These streets now belong to the city of Blytheville and it will be the taxpayers of the city who pay to maintain these large patches of crumbling concrete. We hope the city is a good deal more particular about what kind of streets it annexes to the city these days. Its lack of discrimination 10 years ago is going to cost much money over the next 10 years. JLetteM Uo Un ; (Letters to the editor are welcomed.

To present these figures as evidence of prudent money management is misleading. The deficit is lower than expected only because growth in the economy and accelerated tax payments increased Federal revenues by $4.6 billion of which $4.1 billion came from extra taxes paid by indviiduals. Now the President is aiming for a deficit of "only" $1.8 billion in fiscal 1967, and again prudence and economy play no part in his program. Profits from the change to copper coins, the sale of mortgages and other assets, and one-shot accelerated withholding of taxes are expected to increase government revenues sufficintly so that we can spend more than ever before yet avoid a large deficit. In the absence of these budget gimmicks, the fiscal 1967 deficit would approach $10 billion. Higher taxes and price inflation .have left the average American with $10 less purchasing power in the second quarter of this year than three months earlier. Taxes and infla- tion will take a heavier toll in the future. These -pressures can be reversed only by meaningful cuts in non-defense Federal spending, and it is obvious such cuts will be made only if the press and the public show concern. Citizens should write, wire or call their Members of Cohgress demanding economy. We need such action now. Sincerely yours, Frank T.

Witney knows how taut the rope will be, and for how long. If all goes according to plan, he can't be hurt. "O.K.," says director McLag- len. "We'll try it. Hang well, Mike."

You called Dr. Bales a "Genesis Theorist" and said he would find things cozy in the Johnson camp. I infer that you believe all people who believe in the Genesis account of creation should vote for Mr. Johnson. If all Bible believing people in Arkansas vote for Mr. Johnson, he will win with little effort. You imply that you and Mr. Holt do not believe in a literal interpretation of Genesis. I do not know what this has to do with politics, but if you think Mr. Johnson is a God- fearing-.-man, it's good enough for me. James B. Killebrew P.O.

South won with dummy's ace and proceeded to study the hand thoroughly. He noted that it would be a cinch il the spades were to divide. If they didn't he would still be able to make bis contract if he could hold himself to the loss of one heart trick. West was marked with the ace of hearts from his bidding. If he also held thfe jack of hearts it was South's problem to find some way to force West to lead that suit. Eventually South worked it out. He leo a club from dummy and trumped It. Then he played his ace of spades. East showed out as expected but South did not mind. He trumped a diamond in dummy, a club in his hand, his last diamond in dummy and dummy's last club in his hand. Then he threw West in with a trump. NorKi and South were each left with three hearts and a trump. West with three hearts, a diamond and troubles.

Most of this, of course, will be increased military spending for Viet Nam. But the social programs are going to c,o s t more than anticipated. Medicare will add another $3 billion to the spending increase. Food prices are expected to move up firmly as a result of the continuing worldwide shortage of grain and other agricultural products. The sharp military and other government spending increases are expected to create irresistible pressures fo rprice rises throughout the economy. Overall, prices will go up about 3 per cent in the next 12 levels.

This may mean lower sales — and higher costs — in many industries. (The decline in consumer sales may be masked by the higher prices and by the heavy orders in defense industries.) goods sold will result in an in- i crease in unemployment by 300,000 to 400,000 men. The unemployment picture, however, will be mixed. There will be wide areas of industry where the labor supply will continue tight. There will be heavy shortages of skilled men Automobile sales may be '• in a variety of specialties and down a third of a million cars.

As long as 1 stay on a low fat diet I don't have any trouble. Tbe doctor says I won't have to have my gall bladder removed as long as I don't have stones and stay on my diet. What do you think? A - A chronically inflamed gall bladder without stones is a rarity. What is much more common is a series of attacks of abdominal distress falsely attributed to the gall bladder. If your discomfort is due to an irritation of some other part of your digestive tract or to an allergy, removal of your gall bladder would accompish nothing. Q — I have never had gall Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association By Wayne Q. Brandstadt, M.D. Q -r- What the symptoms j of a gall bladder attack? How' can I tell whether I have gall stones? A —. Gall bladder colic occurs when a gall stone leaves the gall bladder and enters the bile duct if the stone is about the same caliber as the duct. The pain is similar to what you feel when you swallow a large peach stone but much worse. The pain of gall bladder colic is usually in the right upper portion of the abdomen. The diagnosis is based on a history of a typical gall bladder attack and seeing stones in a gall bladder v ray. Q — Some people say grapefruit counteracts Kie acid in your system.
