'AW/OM£ ON^ENE-SE MY CABOOSE/ 7 Uwo Wortk — Please A political move last week that caused some reevalution on the part surprised many, was the entrance of other candidates — both Demo- of Robert P. Kennedy into the Demo- cratic and Republican. What is your cratic primary. The move, no doubt, opinion? "// he is using the excuse that Johnson turned down his committee proposal on the war in Vietnam, then / think it is poor motivation." — Max Hi//, 7404 N, Broadway, B/ythevi//e. "/ expected it, I'll say that. I would prefer George Wallace myself. The country needs a change and / think it would be worth a try tor the Independent Party. As far as Robert Kennedy is concerned, he would do a better job than Johnson." —Gerald Vance, 541 S.W. Parkway, Biytheville. "According to. the present administration, / don't think that Kennedy could do any worst job. I agree with his opinion on the war."— Ronald Watson, 727 N. Crescent Drive, Blythevill*. Humiliated Neighbors Have a Bone to Pick RumlltBtcd DEAR ABBY: We have an old - maid neighbor who thinks she is smart. She named her cocker spaniel "Lester" knowing perfectly well that wag my husband's name. Jn the evening when she calls her dog, my husband goes to the window and barks just to confuse her. There have been times when I have called my husband when he's down the road somewhere and that dog would come running. Isn't there something we can do about this? There surely must be laws to protect respectable people against being humiliated publicly by people like her. I'd take her to court it I thought I could win. LESTER'S WIFE DEAR WIFE: If you have a bone to pick with your neighbor over her dog, bet- ter do it out of court. A grown man who would "bark to confuse a neighbor who's calling her dog is in no position to find fault with a practical joker. DEAR ABBY: We are two young childless women married to brothers. Our problem is that our husbands only very casually mentioned to us that there was a third brother who has lived in an institution as long as they could remember. That is all they have ever told us about him. They have never visited him, and they never refer to him. It is at if. he were dead. We aren't even sure if this brother is mentally ill, was a brain-damaged baby, retarded or insane. Once I asked my husband to tell me something about this brother he never saw, thinking it could be a genetic defect and possibly hereditary so perhaps we should consider adoption. He said lie knew nothing more than he had told me, and he didn't 75 Year* Ago —In Blythevilh In marriage rites perfbrmed at six o'clock Saturday evening at the Clear Lake Baptist Church, Miss Peggy June Stallings became the bride of Cbarles Robert Jackson. J. E. Teaford of Luxora was elected president of the Ark-Mo Ginners Association at a meeting of the directors of the organization in Memphis last night. Mrs. G. W. Pyles and Mrs. W. J. Pollard left this morning for St. Louis where they will spend several days. Mr. and Mrs. S. E. Tune had as their weekend guests, Dr. and Mrs. Marcus Stewart of Memphis. want to ask his parents as it "upsets" them to discuss it. Abby, should we inquire at the institution and ask them to keep our inquiries confidential. Or should we go directly to our in-laws and ask them? Or should we ignore the whole thing? PUZZLED PAIR DEAR PUZZLED: Ask your husbands. They should realize tbat your reasons for wanting to know all about this institutionalized brother are valid. And they should provide you with the ans- swers. If they fail to satisfy you, get in touch with the institution. CONFIDENTIAL tO "HAD IT": If yon continue to live with a man who lies, cheats, and has put you in the hospital twice in the last year, you are sicker than he is. Talk to your priest. He's heard every- thing. And see your doctor again. He's seen everything. TOC 81 fTBBVILLl COURIER NEWS TEE COURIER NEWS C W RAINES. PBBLIS. HARRY A.

APfULCLUBISA VEW HARP JOB IF W 0)ANT, I'LL BE 6lAP TO TAKE OVER AS MANAGER AGAIN Poling on Religon David Poling Who are the most powerful leaders in Die Protestant church today? That question was put to writer Louis Cassels by the editors of Christian Herald and his article has some surprising and unexpected answers for the Protestant watchers. It's a timely question. The American community has slid into a year of almost unbearable political and social crises. The war in Vietnam is providing the greatest torment our population has experienced in a hundred years. The volcanic eruptions in party politics will ignite new controversy. It is a hot summer coming for the gliatto areas. Add to this the boiling mood o£ several million college students. And right in the center of it the Protestant church. Therefore, the leadership, influence and power of these churchmen may well be the deciding factor in the solution of many of the social problems we have 'considered. Writing in the April issue of the Christian Herald, Cassels nominates 10 men as the most powerful Protestants. Kugene Carson Blake, general secretary of the World Council of Churches heads the list and I doubt if there would be any disagreement over his prominence—even among his detract"*-*. Blake is known throughout the land for his leadership in the United Presbyterian Church as well as the prime mover behind the merger of 10 denominations into one strong church. The "Blake Plan," if eventually successful, would create a gathering of 20 million Protestants in one Church family. Billy Graham 1» noted for his worldwide evangelistic campaigns and belongs quite naturally in the "top 10." Martin Luther King, Jr. joins this top three for obvious reasons. Three powerful laymen are in the top 10. J. Howard Pew, Presbyterian and president of Sun Oil; J. Erwin Miller, president of the Cumins Engine, and Arthur S. Fleming, president of the University of Oregon. All of these laymen are concerned, worried and involved churchmen. Pew and Miller would bs found on the opposite side nf almost every social question — and exerting every ounce of muscle, charm and vitality to support their goals out of the church. Other Protestant* who swinf • lot of weight, and at times, Viadcm, are John E. Hint* -bydavid poling- presidlng Bishop of the Episcopal Church; Franklin Clark Fry, head of the Lutheran Church in America, and Clyde W. Taylor, articulate leader of the National Association of Evangelicals. The youngest man on the list, the only teacher and theologian, and voted the most popular professor at Stanford, is Robert McAfee Braown. This 47-year- old campus powerhouse has one of the largest follbwings of any Christian on the university scene today. The' big issue, of course, is Vietnam and McAfee Brown is at the front rank of the peace movement 5n churches and colleges. His careful and perceptive reporting on the Vatican II has earned him highest marks from the Roman Catholic community, we works both sides of the ecclesiatical street and enjoys the respect of schol- eJjentat J^reattn - by William lawrence, d.d.s. - Lawrence Kt across the world. Cassels admits he may have left some important people out of the top 10. Perhaps you should write to me your own revised standard list tor future columns. Personally, I -would add two right now—Sen. Mark Hatfield, R.-Ore., a powerful and popular figure within the church who is genuinely accepted by conservatives and liberals; William Sloan Coffin ol Yale who can fill a stadium on a moment's notice and talk about the Chritian faith with clarity and conviction. When that happens, you are observing th« power of persuasion, and that is what the Christian message ii all about. Gary M. has a chronic wasting disease and is confined to her home except for rare auto excursions to see a bit of the outside world. And mobility is a hardship, and climbing stairs is too exhausting and too dangerous. Because of this, her dental health was neglected. Her teeth were badly broken down. Decay and many teeth were broken off at the neck. After consultation with her physician, it was decided that her general health was so delicate extraction of the roots were too risky. So they were left in place. But something had to be done because Cary M.'s' ability' to c - ew the food that was necessary for her existence was severely compromised. That was the problem. What to do about it? Cary M. may be the first patient to have received dental curb service. She was driven into the parking area near the dentist's office. And while she sat comfortably in her car, listening to the radio, her dentist and his assistant performed necessary procedures for malting dentures: impr.essions, bite and try-in. Some days later, the completed dentures were inserted and adjusted. The dentures were constructed to fit over and, in fact, rested on the broken teeth. This is not textbook dentistry, but in this case it lent needed support, since the gums were too friable to support dentures. Please don't rush to the phone to demand curb service of your dentist. Dental curb service may not be the wave of the future. This case is reported merely to illustrate the flexibility of dentists and destistry, the feeling of responsibility that dentists have for their patients, the co-operation of physician and dentist, and the awareness by modern dentistry of the general health and well - being of their patients. Of course, mobile portable equipment is available and many dental procedures can and are being done for non-ambulatory patients in their own homes and in nursing homes. But equipment is expensive and time away from busy offices is too costly for most dentists to be able to participate. In view of the ever • increasing age of our population, home dental treatment programs deserve much more attention. from all concerned. Please send your questions about dental health to Dr. Lawrence in care of this paper. While he cannot answer each letter personally, letten of geri- ««l intemt will u : ttif**i Blytheville (Ark.)
