Telephone OS 5-2115 ROUND TOWN AND THE CLOCK With the Tribune by R. D. Maney IT LOOKS AS THOUGH Governor-elect Roger Branigin is in for a real 'ball'! The political hacks won't like the idea of a reduced payroll . . . but we have an idea that the man from Lafayette, like Schricker before him ... will win out in the end and will be the boss! R T ROGER DID GET a little vexed when a reporter from one of the T-V stations kept at him constantly . . . while he was greeting legislators in what was supposed to be a 'closed door' luncheon . . . but was open to the public ... or the T-V, whichever you prefer, through a loudspeaker someone evidently turned on, allowing the conversation to be overheard on' the outside. CANT SAY THAT we blame him. After all—those fellows do ^ get pretty brash sticking that mike in the face . . . and keeping up a barrage of questions after finding out that the man was NOT GOING TO answer uestions at that time. However . . . Roger kept his temper . . . and nothing happened. SHOULD TELL THE TALE THE OPENING SESSION of the TJ. N. scheduled today ... should tell the tale . . . whether Russia and some of her satellites are going to continue to thumb their respective noses at the United Nations ... or 'be put in their respective places by that body . . . and be forced to 'pay up'! If the present plan to hurry through regular business . . . then adjourn ... to prevent a United States and U. S. S. R. fight over the issue, is successful, then we may expect the same old '76' . . . and another battle lost by Uncle Sam! We hope enough 'BACKBONE is displayed this time ... to prevent this. SINCE WHEN? THE REPORT OUT of the EAST . . . where all FAT CATS seem to have 'fingers in the pie' . . . seems to be that President Johnson will FIRE J. Edgar Hoover ... the F. B. I. chief for years . . . and probably the - most respected man in this country. No doubt the scheming liars and political hacks . ... who have not had their way with him . . . will be 'out to get him' . . . and are. SINCE WHEN DO WE become disenchanted with such a man? It has all the earmarks of a TRIAL BALOON . . . probably is in the cards . . .but public opinion is being tested by a 'supposed leak' through a national magazine. Even if Bobby Kennedy was not in favor of Hoover . . . this is not to say his work has not been magnificent .'. . and that IF all of the men brought to justice by his group would not have been convicted if red tape had not entered into the game. His job was to collect evidence . . .not prosecute, remember this. It is" not a Gestapo . with all-out powers, this is the big difference between the F. B. I. and totaltarian power groups. R T FRANKLY . . . we don't believe Mr. Hoover would have made the statements about either the. Warren Commission or-Martin Luther King . . . had he not have had enough pressure -'up to his neck' . . . and been downright disgusted. He had never done so before . . . and the deliberate pressure brought to bear on him must have been terriffic. And we are not one to go along with those . who say "a man in public life c.o-n n e c t e d with government should step out of his job, w&ether framed or not . . . and net say anything detrimental to the powers that be out of respect to the government." This is-pure 'baloney' . . . and hogwash! After all—JUST WHO IS THE GOVERNMENT . . . BUT THE PEOPLE? Though you would never know it—since the complexion of things has certainly changed during the past decade or so. • t ' R T IF YOU ARE A J. Edgar Hoover fan . . . and believer . . . write your Congresman . . . and ask-that a 'fair, shake' be given the greatest law enforcement officer '. . . and one of the greatest living Americans! To this we add: the rumor just might have ' been started by" certain people who seek .to cause trouble 'in government circles. However — after the job is done .. . fF IT IS ... it will be too late to do anything abcut it! This has always been our trouble—too little and too late! THEY TALK about J. Edgar as being an 'aging' chief, yet not one word about the men in Congress who are above his age . . . and called upon tc render decisions affecting you and I, every day the group is in session! WHAT A MOCKERY! DOES THIS SOUND LIKE 'AGING' REASON? "ATHESTIC COMMU NI S M and the lawless underworld are not the only threats to the safety of this great nation.. Enemies of freedom come under many guises. OUR SOCIETY TODAY is in a great state of unrest. Many citizens are confused and troubled. For the first time, some are confronted with issues and decisions related to the rights and dignity of their fellow countrymen . . . problems that heretofore had been shirked or ignored. WE HAVE HATE-MONGERS in our midst, riotous agitators, many who are at oposjte poles philosophically .... but Who spew similar doctrines of prejudice or intolerance. They exploit hate and fear for personal gains. They distort facts, spread rumors . . . and pit one element of our people against another. Intimidation and terror is their dogma. ALMOST EVERY COMMUNITY is infested with these opportunists, either organized or 'free anced'! They are surrounded with dupes and miscreants . . . they promote grief and strife. There is no limit to their deeds short of death. In the wake of their defiance of law and order are the-trampled rights of their fellow'men. Enforcement of law is often caught in the cross-fire of criticism and distrust coming from the opposing forces, which clash on the issues involved. Our actions must be exemplory. We must not deviate from the solid principles and high traditions of our profession." R T P.S. THESE ARE WORDS from J. Edgar Hoover to police officials over the country. Do they sound 'aging' to you? Or SENSIBLE and TRUSTWORTHY? WASHINGTON (UPI)—President Johnson, using a historic gold ; plated spade, will break ground on the banks of the Potomac Wednesday for .the $31 million John F. Kennedy Center for the i Performing Arts. Television In Review By H.D. QU1GG United Press International NEW YORK (UPI) — There on the screen was Field Marshal Viscount Montgomery, a general turned pixie for the nonce (this nonce was in r living color, and drat,, but it's a shame that most of us don't have color sets for a grand program like Monday night's), and he was speaking of a most wondrous man named Churchill.. ' '. The war was on, desperately on, and -the prime minister, Monty said, had come in June, 1940, to visit Monty's division and' inspect the defense set-up and: ' . "Then we had dinner and he took the wine list and he said, 'now, general, What will you drink?' And I said, .'.water.' "And he said, 'water!' "And I said, 'water'—I don't smoke and I don't drink and I'm one hundred, per cent fit.' And like a flash he came back: 'Well Ldrink and I smoke and I'm'two'hundred per cent fit.' , "It's a wonderful thing, really, that old man." , It's impossible to' keep that Old man - down, and Monday nigh he took the occasion of his SOth birthday,anniversary to dominate a program about Ms MOUNTAIN NAMED AFTER LATE PRESIDENT—One of the Highest unnamed mountain peaks In Canada (above) has been named after the late President John F. Kennedy, Prime Minister Pearson announced In the House of Commons in Ottawa, Ont. The peak towers above the rugged Yukon Territory in Canada's far north, only 15 miles from Alaska. TELEVISION PROGRAM Shortage Of Food Is Facing Cubans By JOHN VIRTUE United Press International HAVANA (UPI)—A shortage of food is the number one problem facing the average Cuban today. Food rationing has been general since 1962. About the only sta'pel food which can be bought without a ration book is bread. Even sugar is rationed.

On the screen barged the' force of his personality, the lilt and smack of his own words, a smattering of his personal—and the world's—history, plus some beautiful shots of natural life in miniscule and in grand sweep. The name of the piece presented by. Hallmark Hall of Fame on NBC was" "The Other World of Winston Churchill," based on his 'book, "Painting as a Pastime." The program did well by its subject, although it is the opinion of this viewer that a producer could fall flat on his face and still be interesting >with Churchill as a subject. As produced by Uack Le Vien and directed by Lou Stoumen, the show used history as a background to beauty. It detailed how, beginning in 1915, Churchill throughout his life used his hobby in time- of despair to communicate with the loveliness of form, color, tone, and movement that an artist finds in the world. The program as a whole had a joyful lightness, a lift. It caught the exuberance, the drive, of the man who didn't begin painting until he was 40 —but still has been at it for 50 years, remaining an amateur, while turning out work of high professional rank, At the same time, the show bore weight of momentous history — remarkable shots from World War I, Hitler from goosestep to book- burn and those gruesome scenes of the Hitler youth organization; Winnie and FDR conferring — plus Merle Ober- 00 in a stunning pink ensemble telling of Churchill as a Vaint- ing teacher. 5:30 Rifleman 6:00 News-Atkins 6:15 News-Cochran 6:30 Cheyenne 7:30 Combat 8:30 McHale's Navy 9:00 Tycoon 9:30 Peyton Place 1Q:00 The Fugitive 11:00 News-Atkins 11:15 Weather-Sports 12:00 77 Sunset Strip 11:30 77 Sunset Strip Wednesday, December 2, 1964 7:30 Geo.

Winters chose to move. "I had to leave five acres of Westchester County," he sighed. But my new house in Toluca Lake is a lot like the one .ve had back East. ' "I spent so much time out •here in the past couple of years I that I was becoming a commuter from New York. Now I'm able to see more of my family." Jonathan has become accustomed to Southern California, regardless of the fact that he can't tell one season from another, and he even manages a few good words for the place. "I'll miss tlje four seasons," he said, but recovered quickly to add, "I like it out here. I like the ocean and fishing, and California's good for that. The climate's-nice, too." You could see he was trying, but his heart wasn't really in it. Likes Pictures But he perked up a bit at .the mention of movies: "I like pictures because you're left alone with the director, actors and writers. "It's not like television where the ad men and the sponsor's wife put their 2 cents worth in." Jonathan was in a glum mood. No sooner had he moved out here than he was called back to Manhattan to do a series of video specials. Now he's commuting the other way. "If we do the specials again next year we'll make them out here," he said. What about prospects of starring on Broadway? Would that entail a return to the four seasons? "I have no desire to do theater," he answered. "The excitement of living in New York doesn't appeal to me." But Manhattan has the four seasons, right? "Yeah... well.. ." IN HOLLYWOOD By VERNON SCOTT UPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) —Nothing irks, a Californian more than hearing some misplaced easterner complain, "I miss the four seasons." • The usual retort is? "So go back and shovel snow." •Missing the four seasons at the moment is Jonathan Winters, whose last name alone sends chills down a, native Angelen's spine. Comedian Winters is among the recent immigrants to "the coast" as they say back on Madison Avenue and in Darien, Conn. And his reason for immigrating is the same given by other performers wending their way West—employment. "There's more work here for me," Jonathan sad on the set of "The Loved One," his latest movie. If an actor isn't starring in. a Broadway play he must relv on a handful of New York based television series for guest appearances. And how many "Defender" segments can a ham work?

New .items .have been, put oh the ration list and the allotted^ampunts of others have been reduced. The ingredients for such typical . Cuban dishes as arroz con polio (chicken and rice)' and lechoh asado (roast pig) are rationed. The average Cuban is getting enough to eat, but his diet is monotonous, unbalanced and too dependent on starches. Typical Allotments Following are some typical allotments per person: 3feat—12 ounces per week. Rice —Six pounds per month (the per capital, consumption used to be 110 pounds per year compared to six pounds in the United States). | Lard — One-half pound per month. , I Eggs—Four per person (when there are any). Butter/— Four ounces per month when there is any. • Coffee— VA ounces per week. Milk—for those up to - seven years of age and over 65. Lineups in front of. food stores are common because the food that is rationed is not necessarily available. When scarce items such as eggs ate put on the counter they are quickly snapped iip. Restaurants Improving., • While the food situation in the home has been gradually worsening, it has been improving in the restaurants. The government has made more food available to the restaurants, most of which are state-run, because the Cuban with a few extra pesos will periodically eat there to supplement his diet. But the price is high. Even in an average restaurant, a shrimp cocktail will cost $2, a steak $5 and boiled eggs $1.20. Bread and butter are extra. A meal for two in a •.op flight restaurant can cost $30: Cubans will also supplement what can be bought with a ration book by dealing in the black market, especially if they have growing children. Meat has been selling illegally for $5-7 a pound and chicken for $3.50 a pound. Shortage is Bewildering The shortage of food is a bit bewildering for Cubans because their soil is rich and the growing season is year-long. But (here are a variety of reasons for it.

Sugar has been rationed since Hurricane Flora severely damaged the crops last year and raised the possibility that Cuba would have difficulty meeting its foreign commitments. Cuban fruits which are now rarely seen in the stores are said; to be canned and exported. Secondly, many skilled agricultural workers have fled into exile, leaving - a manpower shortage. Students and "volunteer" groups help with the harvest, but they do. not always have the proper skills for maximum results. Thirdly, passive resistance and occasional acts of sabotage on the part of some workers cut the yield. Sells illegally Fourthly, the small farmer— farms under 170 acres are still privately owned—does not like selling his produce to the state marketing body at a fixed price. Some of his produce is sold illegally to private citizens or to black marketeers. Fifthly, there is a lack of fertilizer. ' Finally — and most import­ antly—have been the failures of the government's agricultural policy. Attempts to diversify the crops have ' riot been successful, especially in the case'of sugar. The government decided early in the revolution to lessen its dependence on sugar, but found it had to go back heavily -into growing the crop because it was one of the few products on which it could depend for foreign currency. BAND IN COURT LOS ANGELES (UPI) —IFidel Segura, 51, brought three of his sons with two saxophones and a guitar to play in,court Monday in answer to charges against him. Segura has eight children, five of whom make up a band consisting of two saxophones, a guitar, drums and a bass. He hoped that the courtroom concert would convince the jurors he was not guilty of being a public nuisance by allowing the children to play, making "loud and^unusual noises" as the city attorney alleges.
