IN PERMANENT ORBIT. Search for Alternatives Sunday was television's biggest news day since Nov. 22, 1963. Two events of great significance unfolded on Sunday's screens. Former Undersecretary of State George Ball, once a member of the Lyndon Johnson State Department team, expressed himself in cool, logical terms on an interview program and, of course, the President of the United States announced later in the evening that he he will not seek reelection. Of the two, one of Mr. Ball's statements contains more interesting implications .for future helmsmen of the ship of state than anything Mr. Johnson said, save perhaps his announcement of the bombing pause. Mr. Ball pointed to the terribly difficult position a peace candidate would find himself in should he ba elected. If a Eugene McCarthy, for example, should be in the White House next year, he would be in the worst possible position to bargain with the Viet Cong and the North Uieu/t \Jf (Jthen Vietnamese in any attempt at a conference table resolution to the .Vietnamese tragedy. This disadvantage is going to be deepened now by the withdrawal of President Johnson from ;the 1968 campaign. You can gather the psychological effect, if you had just read that Ho Chi Minh was throwing it in, as pacifist candidates steadily gained support. America then must have a reasonable alternative. A Robert Kennedy or a Eugene McCarthy, avowed pacifists, would not and could not represent the nation adequately in a conference table confrontation with North Vietnam- Richard Nixon? Certainly, that's one possibility, but what if he's a loser, which he has been ? The obvious key man in this vital situation is Hubert Humphrey, who may have his own ideas about Southeast Asia, but who certainly does not represent instant capitulation, a condition which could prolong the war forever. The Rules This is what the Driver's License Manual published by the Arkansas State Police says: "Every person, other than a chauffeur, who drives or is in actual,physical control of a motor vehicle upon a highway, or who is exercising control over or steering g vehicle being towed by a motor vehicle" Is a driver or operator. the manual also states: —Any person who drives a motor vehicle on the highway or streets of Arkansas must have a driver's license. The only exceptions are those driving vehicles belonging to the armed services of fte United States when on official duly and those driving farm or road machinery while temporarily on a highway. —Persons under 16 years of age may not be licensed to drive except that those between the ages of 14 and 16 may be issued a restricted license. Anyone under the age of 18 must have the application for a license signed and verified by parents or a guardian. —If you are learning to drive you must have an instruction permit and must always have a licensed driver seated beside you. The restricted license also states that youngsters under 16 must be accompanied by an adult when driving a motor vehicle. These are the rules of the game.— Paragould Daily Press Praise the Lord and Pass the Votes We get a preview this week of one of the things the First Congressional District can expect in its first wide open congress man race in two decades. H is what would appear to be a church endorsed candidate from Marianna. Candidate Clyde Andrews has announced a rally for supporters in the counties of I/ee, Phillips, St. Francis and Monroe Counties. Sponsor of the rally is the Lee County Ministerial Alliance. Officer! of the alliance will fill master of ceremony and speaker Introduction spots on the program. Virtue by public association, with the thurcb and U» ministers is part of • once popular political approach which equates piety with outward symbols, Today's trends have seemed to indicate that many voters size up a candidate and perhaps his religious'capacity by a different measure. Chiefly that measure is his ability to probe the problems of the day and articulate their challenges. There has also been an indication that ministers of the gospel and their churchea ire being judged on a similar basis. Now comes a teat of the trends progresi in our district from the candidate who has indicated he will campaign from the soapbox of "Intensified CIyde".~Marked Tree Tribune He Wants to Catch A Swinging Widow DEAR ABBY: My wife died • year ago and this lady I'm interested in has been a widow for two years. We knew each other way back "when." Before I renew our friendship I'd like to ask you a few Questions. Since her husband died, this lady has had several men staying with her (one at a time) in her two- bedroom trailer. I also heard that she has visited' an old farmer at his farmhouse (just the two of them) for days at a time. Last week she headed for Arizona with another old buddy in his camper, truck. She said she planned to sleep in motels, on thai way, and he would sleep in the truck, but she didn't say where they would sleep ones they got to Arizona,. -Now, Abby, a man doesn'l want to marry a woman who has a bad reputation. She's the talk of this little town, but she is really a very high- class lady and everybody likes her. What is your advice? WAITING TO HEAR DEAR WAITING: It teems almost a disservice to the community to take this aging swinger out of circulation — if indeed you could. But if you regard this woman as a "high-class lady" any advice I could give you would fall on den! ears. And your vision isn't too good, either. DEAR ABBY: I am a 21- year-old Catholic girl secretly married to a 27-year-old Jewish boy. Sheldon (made up name) and I were married by a justice of the peace, intending to announce it later on. Now it seems that Sheldon doesn't want to announce it at all. You see, Sheldon is a mam- . ma's boy and his mother hates me. When we were married Sheldon promised he would marry me later in my church, Now he refuses. He. .wants to rent a furnished room and put me there and come to see me whenever he wants to, and then go home to mama without anyone knowing we are married. I've' talked to a lawyer and I've also talked to my priest. The lawyer says I should file for divorce. The priest says I am not married in the eyes of the church. I still Jove Sheldon and don't want to break up with him, but if we can't liva out in the open like decent married people, I don't want to go on like this. What should I do? , KATHY DEAR K4THY: It would appear that Sheldon is not a "keeper." So unless ha 15 Years Ago — In Blythtrillt Charles Kinningham has arrived .from Mississippi State College to spend the Easter holidays with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Abe Kinningham. Glen Rose, basketball coach at the University of Arkansas, was' guest speaker last night at a banquet honoring Coach Jimmy Fisher and .members of. the 1953 basketball squad. Harold Ohlendorf, president of the Osceola Chamber of Commerce, today announced that Crompton Co. of Waynes- bovo, Pa. will construct a $4,000,000, textile finishing plant in Osceola. Mrs. Dick J. White and children Richard and Ellen have gone to Marianna to spend the Easter holidays; agrees to marry you In your church and accept the responsibilities of marriage) lend him home to mama— permanently. DEAR ABBY: Your advica is sound. Keep telling married people that they can resist the temptation of en "affair" if they try. After 16 years of marriage I, too, "fell in love" unexpectedly with a friend. The physical tumult that sprang from my being when I just saw his car wag unbelieveable. My ' struggle with temptation lasted three years! But I was blessed — somehow. I never told h i m how I felt about him, altho I had many opportunities. This thought helped me: "If I betray my husband, and he betrays his wife, .could J ever, trust myself — or him — again?" I won, for my emotional reactions are gone now, and the man I thought I couldn't live without remains our friend. BEEN THERE DEAR ABBY; Is "The Pill" 100 per cent foolproof? MUST KNOW DEAR MUST: Nothing ii 100 per cent "foot proof" In the hands of a fool. Everybody has a problem. What's yours?

NOBCW CAN MAKE A SHOT LIKE THAT.' -TC •c-z TV Notebook by joan crosby CrOiuy By JOAN CROSBY NBA Entertainment Editor NEW YORK - (NBA) - At the age of 30, Jack Jones says he has finally grown up. • He is singing better than ever, with much more feeling and maturity, and he is blossoming out as a good sketch comic on television. He recently appeared -on The Carol Burnett Show, .-and hg will be seen on The Red Skelton Hour on April 2 and, on April 17, he'll be a guest on The Jonathan Winters Show. He also has a new recording contract with RCA, which has just released his latest album, "If You Ever Ijeave Me." "When I started .recording," he said, "I was so green and scared and stiff it was impossible to make a good record. "But when you're starting in this business, if you go in as a know-it-all, you're dead. If you go in as someone who listens to Uie more experienced people around you, it's fine, but you fall into a trap common among singers — your manager tell you what to do and how to dress and where to go. "I've grown up gradually, but everything has fallen into place the last couple of years. My wife, Jill St. John, and I met and now I couldn't be happpier." Jack deliberately holds his television appearances down to about six a year. But he will have a special on NBC-TV next fall, Which will be taped in the spring. He had a special several years ago (and also a syndicated one - shot, which is making the rounds), but that was before he grew up. How now, Marlyn Mason, a pretty, talented young lady who has more animation than a Disney cartoon and more vocal power than a politician throwing his hat in the ring. She has got to be the only actress in the world who can go on television with Johnny Carson, tell how she spent her first several months in New York sharing apartments with various gentlemen, and make it sound as innocent is a nur- •ery rhyme. • • Miirlyn is a Californian who came out of the Billy Barnes Review to act on nearly every television series imaginable.

Q — A urologist says I have a nonspecific bacterial infection in my bladder. Antibiotics have not helped. Is there anything that will clear it up? Would the fact that my uterus presses on my bladder cause this infection. A —' Different bacteria require different antiseptics and, in some cases, tests must be made to determine whether the organisms causing the infection have become resistant to the treatment used. Pressure from inside the pelvis may irritate the bladder and cause frequent urination but will not cause infection. Q — I am a woman, 72, and bava s constant urge, to urinate. When I do, I have a burning pain. What can I take for it? A •— First, have your doctor determine the cause. A treatment program might include drugs and diet that will change the acidity or alkalinity of your urine, urinary antiseptics and drugs to soothe your bladder. In stubborn cases, it may bg Ttosn Im't mr tapfew jwAffinf-Hton't wt A«w MW« crises owmf tort w/ttart bming i 'Dnttri CrWr Brandsfedt nscessary to Irrigate the bladder with a weak solution of silver nitrate or some, other antiseptic. Q — Can an ulcer of the bladder be cured? Does it turn to cancer? A — Chronic ulcers of the bladder are notoriously hard to cure, Local treatment through a eystoscope is usually rt- quired. Chronic irritation of the bladder may be a precipitating cause of some cancers. Q — My doctor found pus in my urine, What is the cause?' A — The cause is an infec. tion in the kidneys, bladder or both. Urinary antiseptics usually clear up' this condition. . Q ~ My bladder has fallen/ My doctor says" I should hays it repaired but it doesn't bother me. It has been like that for 20 years, Are there any exercises that would help? If the bladder is put back in piece, will it stay put? A — A repsir operation for 9 bladder that protrudes into the birth canal is usually advisable to prevent a. bladder infection, j know of no exercise that will hold your bladder In ,Pl»oq.

"It was a big disappointment," she said. "Coming from California and having been raised on a farm, I thought when you walked on stage there would be a big TA-DAA. But if I divided up what goes into the experience, there would be more unpleasant than pleasant about it. All Is fine when I get before the audience however, "On opening night, my mother was in the dressing room and I said to her, 'Mother, it's ; not happening; I don't fee] that excitement.' I'm not bitter that I am frustrated. I always thought the life was so glamorous, now I find I'm asking, 'Is it worth it?' Then I get on stage and it is." "How Now, Dow Jones" underwent several changes and much rewriting on the road. "I, started out saying yes to everything, even if I thought a chpge was wrong. Then once I spoke up in as ladylike a way as possible. I should have screamed and yelled. Once I ran off to my dressing room and cried, thinking, 'Oh God, I'll be. glad when we open and everyone will go sway and leave the actors to act,'" Blytheville (Afk,) Courier Newi Page Six Tuesday, April 2, 1968 The World Almanae reports that* fow'.-rtwnjid. lalep Bird earned JZZR.OQQ for Ws owner by winning the world's richest horse r«ce in 20,11 seconds, The TICS is thVWl-ywd, I486,- m AH-Amerlean Quarter Horn Futurity it Ruldoto Downs, N.M.
