TUESDAY, AUGUST If 1H4 GETTING JUST A BIT MESSY! Argentina And The Alfonza- Five of Argentina's eight nationally chartered universities are supposed to reopen today. Argentina at the moment is the mote in the eye of the Alianza. The relatively new military dictatorship there, estensibly anti-Peronist, is losing friends fast. The military government headed by Lt. Juan Carlos Ongania which overthrew the constitutional but weak government of President Arturo U. Illialast June 28 was immediately recognized by Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. This was understandable; the military plays a leading role in each of these governments. Venezuela and Costa Rica promptly broke diplomatic relations with Argentina. Another group of countries, among them Chile, Peru, Mexico and Uruguay, brooded for a while and then confirmed normal relations. The U.S. took this same quiet path 18 days after the coup, This diplomatic realism was perhaps premature. The Ongania regime on July 29 seized the eight nationally chartered and state-run universities for the first time in the Argentina history. (The decree did not affect the four universities supported by Roman Catholic organizations.) Hours later police raided the universities, beating and eventually jailing many students and teachers. One American, Warren A. Ambrose, a visiting professor from the Massachusetts institute of Technology, was clubbed. Hundreds of teachers, many with international reputations, said they would leave the . country. The rectors of the five largest national universities — the Faculty of Exact Sciences in Buenos Aires, La Plata, Del Literal, Cordoba and Tucuman — resigned along with most of their deans. The rectors arid faculty deans of Bahai Blanca, Corrientes and Mendoza, the three You Can't Lose- Figures are tricky. This is-as true of the Consumer Price Index as anything else. Since price increases have literally hit the headlines in recent months, following the Consumer Price Index has become popular as the funnies. However, the index can be misleading. To help bring prices into proper light, the National Association for Food Chains has issued a memorandum with shopping suggestions. Here they are: Don't buy the high-priced item, invest in a nutritional alternative; if a favorite vegetable is higher priced, rediscover other fresh vegetables — it is infrequent that the whole group will be up at the same time in price; faced with a tempo- smallest national universities, gave the required pledges of loyalty and their institutions were allowed "to resume. That the other universities will be able to start up again as scheduled today is extrmely dubious in view of the mass resignation of teachers as well as rectors and deans. The Washington Post observes: "The savage police measures and the imposition of government controls on what has hitherto been the autonomous province of the univer- sitie is highly ominous, paralleled as it is by crack-downs on the press and by the outlawing of political parties." The military takeover in Argentina is peculiarly embarassing because it comes at the half-way mark of the program for the Alliance of Progress, which was supposed, among other things, to spread the democratic ethic throughout Latin America. With Brazil and Argentina, the two Latin giants, strongly under military influence, the Alianza cannot be said to have progressed greatly during its first five years, the anniversary which falls on August 17 — tomorrow. Despite formal recognition, the relationship between the United States and the Ongania regime was definitely chilled by the raids of the universities. Admitting that some Latin American universities had become "asylums for gangsters or for professional students who have no interest in studies but only in subversive agitation," Lincoln Gordon, assistant secretary of state for Inter-American Affairs on August 4 expressed "dismay" over the police action. The Argentines replied on August 8 by stating their "displeasure" with Gordon's remarks. The result is not yet a dispute — only a tiff- — but the Alliance is scarcely advantaged. rary price hike in a commodity, look for it in other forms — fresh, frozen, canned, dried, in prepared frozen or canned dishes; if bacon seems high, go to other pork products, such as sausage, ham, smoked chops. Widen your horizons . . . How about kippered herring, corned beef hash, beef bacon, creamed dried beef and so on? Don't forget to shop the specials, which occur generally on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. By using these simple rules all consumers can beat the price index all the time. It is simply a matter of what might be called good "buyman- ship". Try it. You can't lose. The same system can be applied to most other commodities. Successful Investing- By Roger E. Spear GROWTH POTENTIAL SEEN IN FLORIDA DRUG CHAIN Q) "Friends bought Eckerd Drugs of Florida before last year's split. They now consider it a good buy for me. I would appreciate your comment." C.C. A) I am inclined to agree with your friends if you wish to buy a speculative growth stock. Eckerd appears to be a well - managed operation which benefits from repeat sales of many varied items. In the report for SPFAR fiscal 1966, ended March 31, saels of some 531.7 1965's record of $23 million. Set earnings million had risen 37 per cent over fiscal of S2.03 a share were up 33 per cent, continuing the ycar-by-year climb from ,">5 cents in 1!)G1, adjusted for last year's 100 per cent stoek dividend. Cash dividend was recently increased from 40 to 50 cents annually. Shcuid you decide to follow your friends' . suggestion, you should keep in mind that the amount of Eckerd's floating stock is limited, and likewise the number of stock- holders. This suggests rather volatile price action should earnings potential attract a larger foljowing. Currently trading near its 1966 low, Eckerd reached an all-tune high of 384 earlier this year. Q) "Can you supply information on the following stocks? Some have been held many years: Italian Star Line; Am. International Bowling; Continental Enterprises; Custer Channel Wing; Lone Star Oil; Lost Creek Cons. Oil v Gas; Wyoming La Barge & Dry Piney Oil; Oatman Amalgamated Gold Mining; N.Y.

Buckley STRIKES CAN BE P UN If Congress would only look into the root causes of the prolonged strikes wmch are becoming a way of life, it would undoubtedly discover that the traditional forces th0t tend to reconciliation- namely economic pressures, are increasingly dissipated by social insulations and by a general affluence. Consider, as an example, the apparent outstanding difference between the hourly increase offered by the airlines to the machinists, and the BUCKLEY figure the machinists have beeil holding out for. It is, at this writing, a lousy five cents pei- hour, or two dolWs P 61 " week, on top of the nineteen dollars and twenty cent? recommended by the presidential commission, and agreed on by the companies. The strike, which is now into its second month, has at this rate cost the least of the machinists a sum of money which, assuming the airlines were to capitulate immediately on the disputed figure, would require just short of six years to make up. One must assume that the material shock of unemployment is effectively being softened, or that there ar e extra-material factors of transcendent consideration thai fuel the intransigeancS of the machinists. Beginning with the first, there is if course -the strike fund- T "e size of strike funds greatly varies from union to union, but these funds can be enormous, and play a critical role in ,illeviating the ache nf a paylcss payday. No"' m °st states will not permit unemployment benefits to be riven to striking workers under normal circumstances, but there af e ways and ways to maneuver around that obstacle, the most popular being to declare a member of your family (your vvife, say) as seeking employment, failing to find it, and —again, the terms vary from state to state —it usually isn't too long before public money is flowing into the tiearth of the worker striking for two dollars more-per week. Meanwhile, the other workers who are derivatively unemployed — the pilots, navigators, clerks, ticket-sellers etc. — have instantly qualified for unemployment benefits, and the enormous pressures they as co-workers are in a position to apply on fellow unionists to moderate tiieir demands are to that extent lessened. Then there are the moofJighting opportunities, more in some cases than in others. In New York City the endless news- paper strike has probably not worked any hardship at all on the linotypists, who are greatly in demand and have quick means of continuing to work. The airline machinists have a harder time, since there are not as many airplanes being flown as pages of type being set, and anyway most of the airplanes are idle, and need little attention. But we are, generally speaking, in an overemployment cycle, with the result that jobs are readily available, even if they are not in the field of one's specialty, for industrious and intelligent workers. Comes now the extra-material consideration. Pride, for instance. There seems to be little doubt that pride played a big role in prompting the machinists to reverse their own leadership, which had come to terms with President Johnson. Pride, of course, can subdue mountains of resolution, and can cause nuclear wars. But in order to be admirable, 'the maintenance of pride should be costly, or at any rate risky. And we do .not know how costly the maintenance of it has proved to the machinists — because we do not know just how successfully the typical member has maneuvered to maintain the flow of economic benefits. There is — increasingly important in 'the affluent society — the time of year. It is surely worth at least something tangible not to have to get up early in the morning nnd into a subway, to report for duty at the field on a sizzling-hot summer day. In New England there never has been such a tide of tourists and campers, according to nil reports. No doubt some of these are machinists, and linotypists. and newspaper reporters. And no doubt the pains of idleness are somewhat lessened by being able to hake them on the beach, or meditate on them in the streams and rivers, watching the fish, themselves bloated this year, spurn your bait and glide contentedly by. Really, it is all rather pleasant, except that there are other people, and even the very same people, who suffer. Their suffering can by merely inconvenience — having to postpone a flight somewhere; or tragic —being unable to get to one's mother's deathbed in time. All these people necessarily hope that the conventional pressures will work for reconciliation, and necessarily they suppose that those pressures exist, are real, are persuasive, have teeth. It is time to determine just what is left of those pressures, a suitable assignment for the Congress of the United States, whose laws ever a generation, some believe, got us into the mess in the first place. (Distributed by The Washington Star Syndicate) Brady's Health Service- SPECIAL SERVICE By Dr. William Brady T01PKRATLRE AND QU.ACKKRY My advice to parents, grandparents, unc!cs. aunts, big brothers, big sisters or other guardians of children is now and long has been: 1.

But If she will become pro- fkleit is i typist, her future will have 'ceiling unlimited." Young men also need to realize tint a secretarial job often is the quickest route to becoming the president of big companies. So learn how to operate an "ink piano." CASE A-502: Hilda B., aged 17, is a high school senior. "Dr Crane, I'd like to go to college," she began, "but my father is dead and mother can't afford to pay my tuition. "So what would you suggest for me? I am not in love, and I am too young to get married, even if I were. "Should I got a job in a department store as a clerk? Or what else?" Job Insurance Teen-agers, be sure you learn how to operate a typewriter by the touch system! It takes only a term in typewriting class. And by all means polish up your English. Be sure you put a little extra attention on spelling, punctuation and grammar. For good typists and office secretaries are always at a premium. And they usually rate much better pay than store clerks get. Recently a woman asked me if I thought she could procure a job with the newspaper syndicate that handles my column. "Dr. Crane, I graduated from college, she began, "and now that my husband is invalided, I need to help support our family. "I'd like to teach, but I must take a summer course to get a teacher's certificate and I need a job right now." When I asked her if she could handle a typewriter, she sadly admitted she couldn't, so there was no chance for her working at the newspaper syndicate. Yet this woman was a liberal arts college product! So it shows you can spend $1,500 or $2,000 per year for several years Folklore- By William Wade Consequences must always be considered in doing or saying something unexpected. A man who was not very good at this married three times in a year and was sentenced to four years. As the expiration of his term grew near he felt that he had learned his lesson and wrote from prison to his lawyer: "Will it be safe for me to come out?" A draft board was not so cautious in asking a young man his occupation. in liberal art* college and still not be abla to cash-in on that (raining unless you also have some specific merchandisable asset like touch typing. A lot of you young men fail to realize that one of the quickest ways to get to the top in modern business corporations, is to become the private secretary to the president or other able executive. Many of you young men seems to think that you should go into engineering or law or accounting, etc., to advance in modern business firms. Actually, a number of our presidents of great corporations and railroads started out ar typists and secretaries to the heads of those companies. Their bosses taught them so much about the operation of a huge plant that the private secretaries had a better grasp of its operation than most of the junior executives down the line. So when it came time to pick a new president, his former secretary is often the man who steps into his shoes. So look with more respect on your English teachers and the faculty of your typing and secretarial departments. And try to get a year of business col? lege, even though you may aspire to go on and graduate from that liberal arts college. For the business college curriculum ii slanted toward practical results. And it will give you the training in one year which you can use thereafter to earn your way through liberal arts college. For example, in large cities you can earn a good salary by day as a secretary, typist, bookeeper, etc., and then attend night classes at the local university. Hilda can thus pay her own way through four years of college, if she wishes, simply bv attaining proficiency in typing ana English. And even if you don't expect to work but plan to get married soon, by all means get seme business training or typewriting so vou can earn your living if you should ever be confronted by invalidism of your husband. When writing to Dr. Crane, Mellot. Ind., enclose stamped, self-addressed envelops and 25 cents to cover typing or printing costs when you seek personal adrice or one of his psychological charts. "I'm a comedian," he replied. WADE "That so?" the examiner said mockingly. "Let's see you do something funny." The draftee turned to the long line of men behind him and yelled: '•You can go home, fellows. I got the job." A girl home from college was not so adept in meeting a situation, either, when- she received a call in which an unfamiliar male voice said, "Come on over, we're waiting for you." 'To whom do you wish to speak?" shs asked, much annoyed. "Sorry, I must have the wrong number." the man said after a long pause. "Nobody I know says ' whom'." "I suppose I must admit that I do have my faults," a husband said to his wife in a tone that was anything but humble. "Yes," she told him bitingly," and in your opinion your faults are better than the virtues of other people."

To The Point- KIRK By Russell Kirk THE HOOVER INSTITUTION GROWS At Stsnford University, the Hoover In- stituuon on War, Revolution, and Peace, is expanding into its second building, named in honor of Lou Henry Hoover (the wife of Herbert Hoover). The Hoover Tower standing high over the ! Stanford campus, no i longer can accom-' tnodate the vast masses I of documents that have F! been accumulated ever since 1914. Herbert Hoover fore- I saw, at the outbreak of the First World War, that ours Would be a time of troubles, when the fountains of the great deep would be broken up. He proceeded to gather records that otherwise would have perished — for instance, the documents of the Communist regime in Bela Kun, in Hungary, 1919 — so that historians and philosophers might have ivailable the materials to make possible serious study of the causes of war, revolution, and peace, in this century. Today the Hoover Institution — which, as Mi. Hoover meant it to be, is far more than a library — has a staff of 120 people; publishes many books on international affairs, political ideas, modern history, and revolutionary movements; and attrac's a great many scholars. It is probably the best place in the world to study the nature and course of Communism. The Franklin Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy libraries arc small, by the side of Hoover's foundation. In his last years, when this commentator used to taik with him about, the Institution, the foimer president (himself no negligible scholai in several fields) was more interested in the Institution's work and fiiv-- ture than in anything else. Ideological revolution, Hoover knew, had become the terrible scourge of our time. In an interesting article published eight years ago in the Saturday Review, he concluded that the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse was not Pestilence, but Revolution. Here is St. John the Divine's description cif that terrible Horseman: "And there went out another horse that was red; and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, anr 1 that they should kill one another; and there was given unto him a great sword." ^cover's own charitable endeavors, as administrator of relief on a global scale, were meant in part In restrain the Fourth Horseman. But also, Herbert Hoover understood fanatic revolutions are the product of ideas, even more than of want. Order and justice and freedom can be preserved onlv if men know the causes of great discontents and the tactics of the ideologue. Many of the 150-odd research projects now being undertaken at the Hoover Institution are rented to this hope. In the White House, Herbert Hoover never had full opportunity to show the sort of man he was; upon him, as upon John Adams, unpopularity fell like the tower of Siloam. But the fine work of his Institution will keep his memory green a great while. (Gen. Fea. Corp.) Shipwise- By JAMES B. MARTIN -.QUESTION - Did Claude Eatherly pilot of the B-29 named "Straight Flush'' carry the atomic bombs which were dropped on the two Japanese cities? We have read so much about this man I who blamed himself for I the death of 100,000 Jap-1 anese civilians. ' ] ANSWER -Claude Eatherly did not carry I the bombs and did hot I drop the bombs on the I two Japanese cities. On I the morning of August 6,1 1945 the "Straightl Flush" and three other) planes were high over Japan reconnoitering potential target cities for the "Enola Gay" whicn carried the A-Bombs that would be used. Major Eatherly's sole mission was to scout Hiroshima. When he found bombing conditions suitable he flew to a rendezvous point, accompanied the "Enola Gay" back to Hiroshima and circled over • the city after the exploration to take scientific measurements and report of the damage. A few days later Major Eatherly carried out a similar mission ifor the drop on Nagasaki. Major Eathorly was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his act and many other honors. Recently in this column we asked what had become of this man of international fame. Mental institutions, hold ups, petty thievery, criminal or international hero to those who oppose the atomic bcmb? Our good friend Thomas Bailey brought in a hook "The Hiroshima Pilot" which tells the whole story and from which the above copy is taken. The last page of the bock says that Eatherly is a good citizen, is a quite normal individual and makes his home in Galveston, Texas. Thanks to Tom Bailey, MARTIN
