WASHINGTON (UPI) — The State Department is having a hard time convincing skeptics that its.plan to reopen the U.S. consulate in Tahita is solely to benefit American tourists. Closed down in 1948, the department now feels that the recent increase in the number of U.S. visitors to the island paradise in the South Pacific— currently 14,000 a year — warrants reopening the consulate. Cynics have been needling the department. They note that the post, scheduled to reopen on the French island in February, will be something less than a hardship post will man it. for those who nwsr-ofls by The Mlraci*.

I have related-how okra is being studied/as a. blood plasma substitute, a treatment for ulcers, a paper stock, etc. "'' Since then, citizens in all parts of the country have written to me, begging to hear more about this wondrous vegetable. So, hand in hand, let us explore the.matter more deeply. • I was particularly gratified by two letters that I received from Tennessee, for each, in its own way, contributed to the advancement of okra as a cultural force in our society. From Bill Williams, naws editor of the Paris, Tenn..^ Post- Inielligencer, I learned that there has been staged for the past eight years a "West Tennessee Okra Festival," complete with an okra queen. "Just think how a girl must feel to be called 'Miss Okra!' " Williams wrote. I have been thinking about it and when I do, I sort of tingle all over. It almost makes me wish that I were a girl so that I could experience the- sensation more fully. The other letter came from J. E. Garretson Jr., president of Winter Garden Foods, Inc., of Bells, Tenn. I am passing a portion of it along because it blends in nicely with the upcoming holiday season. "I have learned that okra eaten before an evening of considerable imbibing will line the stomach and prevent the usual ill effects," Garretson wrote. "Likewise, okra eaten after such over-enthusiastic imbibing will frequently • calm down a nervous and unsettled stomach." Cause For Rejoicing Reading between the lines, I think that what Garretson is trying to tell us is that okra can be a factor in the prevention and treatment of hangovers. If so, that is further j cause for rejoicing.' \ Some day, I predict, grateful citizens will be erecting shrines to okra all over the world. In Georgia, they will change the name of the Okefenokee swamp to the "Okrafenokee swamp." In Florida, they will change the name of Lake Okeechobee, to "Lake Okrachobee." The citizens of Oklahoma will rename their state ma." In Venezuela, the Orinoco River will be palled "Rio Okra- noco." In Germany, the city of Oberammergau will become "Okrammergau." -General Motors will drop the Oldsmobile and start building an auto called the "Okramo- bile." There will be a new drug called "okramycin." And every New Year's Eve we will join in singing "Okra Lang Syne." Eagles .

And the Eagles accomplished their victory despite two boys finishing the game up on the ^ench via the foul route, Leach and McConnell and with Carson also having to sit out about six minutes after picking up his fourth personal. Jackson Central worked up a three'point margin 19-16'in the first quarter but Fishers forged back into the-lead in the .second stanza on a 15-11 period. The Eagles moved ahead with 16 in the third quarter when Fishers tallied only 12 and then won the final period scoring 19-15.

STEWART GRANGER FE « HENRY 1YLVA Johnson Still Not Assured Of Presidency By ROBERT BUCKHORN United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI)—President Johnson is sending out invitations to his inaugural, but Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, R- Ariz., still has one more chance to'be the next president of the United States. Despite what 69 million voters thought they did on election day, they did not elect a president. The job of actually electing the president falls to only 538 men and women. They vote today in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Who are these president-makers? Where do they get their power?. The answer is found in the Electoral College, an often-criticized holdover from the days of the founding fathers who didn't trust the popular will. Here's the way it works: Under Article 2 of the Constitution, each state is entitled to as many electors as it has senators and representatives. At presidential election time, the voter actually casts his. ballot for a slate of electors. Electors Decide President It is possible for a presidential candidate to receive. more popular votes but lose the election because he failed a majority of the votes in the Electoral College. The anonymous electors can—and have—decided who will be president. There is nothing to prevent a state for electing a slate of un­ pledged electors,' but if an elector is representing either of the two major parties he theoretically must vote for his party's candidate. The political trouble has been that he doesn't always do this. As recently as 1960, a defecting Republican elector from Oklahoma voted for Sen. Harry F. Byrd. In 1956, a Democratic elector from Alabama cast his vote for a man who was almost unknown to the nation at large. In 1948, former President Harry S. Truman lost a vote when a Tennessee elector cast his ballot for Sen. Strom Thurmond, who ran for president on the Dixiecrat ticket. Happened Three Times The possibility of a mass defection of previously pledged electors is remote, but the idea of a man being elected president with less popular votes, but more electoral votes than his opponent, is not. It has happened three times in the past. The most famous case was the Rutherford B. Hayes - Samuel J. Tilden battle in 1876. Tilden not only beat Hayes in the popular vote, he had a majority of all the popular votes cast for the five other candidates. But he never became president. The reason lay in a dispute oyer the electoral votes from Florida, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Oregon. To; settle the fight, Congress set up an electoral commission along party lines. The result was that the commission gave the contested votes to Republican Hayes. Andrew Jackson was another victim of the electoral system. In 1824, Jackson edged John Quincy Adams in the popular vote. But he failed to get the Constitution - required majority of electoral votes. This threw the election into the House of Representatives. Jackson had few friends in the House and the lawmakers voted to elect Adams. The most recent loser-turned- winner was Benjamin Harrison. He lost the popular vote to Grdver Cleveland, but Harrison's popular vote was concentrated in states that had big electoral votes. The result was that Harrison became president. ' FAVORS BIRTH CONTROL LANSING, Mich. (UPI)—Michigan's Public Health Department has gone on record as favoring birth control and'- counseling for "family planning." v , In a policy statement issued Friday by Dr. Albert Heustis, the state health commissioner, the department said: "The Michigan Department of Health strongly supports family planning as a means of fulfilling family potential for physical, mental and social well being."

Smith, Meyers Hot 'Both teams got eight baskets in that third quarter but Wabash picked up two points more than Tipton at the foul line for a 20-18 edge, the only quarter in which they did. The final quarter, which saw three Apaches also whistled to the bench, wound iip in a 16-16 tie. it was Smith and Meyers who took over the offensive work in the last half,- Smith hitting five of seven field goal attempts and two of three at the foul line, to wind up the night's high scorer with' 19 points. Meyers was three for six from the floor •but only one" of three at the foul line and finished Tipton's second high man in a well balanced show with 15 points. The other last period baskets for Tipton came from Dave Quigley, Dan Crouch and Jim Hannah. Crouch also added two at the foul line. Did Great Job Enough praise can 't be given Hannah, the husky bodied speedster from Jefferson Township who, six inches shorter than Bill Moore, whose place he took, teamed, with Crouch in the back- court on Tipton's pressing defense, and when Tipton had possession, worked with all four teammates in .consuming the clock'to stop any possible War bash rally with three Blue Devil starters out of action.
