The Honorable Thing It was genuinely good news to read that James D. Johnson is pledging himself to work for George C. Wallace in the matter of getting the latter on the 1968 Arkansas ballot. Mr. Johnson obviously is a Wallace man and should be in the Wallace camp. Indeed, he can no more in good conscience remain a loyal Democrat than could Barry Goldwater or Robert Welch. In this respect then, Mr. Johnson is doing; the honorable thing in joining the splinter Dixiecrat movement headed by Mr. Wallace, This is assuming that Mr. Johnson is chucking the Democratic Party and is not going to attempt to manipulate the Wallace campaign and the Arkansas Democratic Central Committee simultaneously. This means that Mr. Johnson could be in a position of naming delegates to the Democratic National Convension while plotting the political destruction (in Arkansas) of that convention's candidate. Much of this theorizing is prediciated on Mr. Johnson's active and actual campaigning for Mr. Wallace. Although Mr. Johnson's office contains pro-Wallace lapel pins and bumper stickers, lie told the press recently that he does not know if lie will take an actvie role in the Wallace campaign, assuming Mr. Wallace gets on the Arkansas ballot. Actually, Mr. Wallace should run quite well in Arkansas if he qualifies. Mr. Johnson's own triumph in the 1966 Democratic gubernatorial primary is evidence of the fact that the right-wing streak runs pretty broad through the state's political fabric. It should not have lost much of its potency during the past two years of urban indiscretions (which somehow are, in the public mind, the "fault" of the presidency and the Supreme Court, neither of which is charged with keeping peace in American cities). In Arkansas, local party politics has been local and national party politics has been local, too. This is not entirely bad. As Mr. Johnson points out there is nothing in state Democratic parly rules which prohibit him from working in the interest of a non- Democratic candidate. However, we would think that any party official who assumes national responsibilities (through the state central committee, for example) will find his position indefensible as he instructs national convention delegates while committed to oppose the candidate of the convention, regardless of who that candidate might be. Of OtU Present For The Boothill Hollywood Highlights "To get financing from the major companies, you have to agree to use their studio facilities," he said.

But if the By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Does Robert Aldrich's purchase of a film studio portend the economic future of Hollywood? He thinks so, and he could be right. The film town was startled this month when the producer- Tlie Bootheel halt received a multi-million- dollar "Christmas present" with the announcement of the location of an aluminum processing plant at New Madrid. The $70 million Industrial facility, together with a $70 million generating plant needed to supply the power, marks Missouri's largest single industrial acquisition in the history of the state. The news of the location of a plant, by the Noranda Mines, Ltd., of Toronto, Canada, came as a surprise to most Bootheel residents. Most were unaware that New Madrid was in line for a new industry of this size; only a handful knew of (lie fierce competition between Missouri and Kentucky for the proposed Canadian plant. And, indeed, without the determined efforts of several New Madrid Countians and other Southeast Missourians, including Governor Hearnes, the plant would probably have gone elsewhere. The full extent of the Bootheel's new industrial acquisition can only be guessed at now. The processing plant will employ from 600 to 800 persons, and the Missouri Division of Commerce and Industrial Development estimates another 500 jobs will be created wilh the addition of service-related industries. We are too enthusiastic at (he moment not to accept them at their word. Tills major industry will affect every community, every town and every city in the Bootheel. The new multi-million-dollar payrolls will provide economic assistance and stability to every community in New Madrid, Dunklin, Pemiscot, Scott, Stoddard and Mississippi Counties. Because of the demand, persons living on the fringe areas of the Bootheel can secure employment at the plant; it is not inconceivable that new transportation facilities will have to be devised to accommodate those who live several miles from the plant. Because of New Madrid's location, many residents In this, area will be able to commute from their homes to the plant, slill traveling less distance than many urban commuters. We congratulate all who have had a part In this splendid industrial acquisition; yesterday's news unquestionably added more economic stability to the Bootheel area than any announcement that could -have been made. The long-awaited industrial development of the Bool heel is well underway as a result of this latest acquisition.—Daily Dunklin Democrat (Kennett, Mo.)

The precise meaning escapes us, but if it relates to the swiftness of a passing year, the same could be said of 1967.—Nashville (Tenn.)

Robert Aldrich is a practica man, and it wasn't merely dream that motivated him.

Aldrich has worked at most of the major companies with his independent films—"Whatever Happened to .Baby Jane?' "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte " "Flight of the Phoenix."

The World Almanac notes that, according to American usage, if a candidate for office in a race in which more than two are running receives more votes than any other candidate, he receives a "plurality"; if he receives more votes than all the other contestants combined — more than half of all votes cast- he receives a "majority." •HB HLTTnrTn.L. .
