The program won House approval last session but died in the Senate. This year, action on the civil rights measure is anticipated and Senate approval is expected after souherners wage a token fight against it. President Eisenhower will demand, and get, wholehearted Republican support for the move and northern and western Democrats will combine with GOP legislators to put the bill through. It would strengthen federal laws protecting voting rights, make it easier for minority groups to have direct access to federal courts if their civil rights are violated, create a permanent bipartisan commission to study civil rights problems and establish a more influential civil rights division in the Justice department. TAXES AND TELEVISION The Senate commerce committee has begun a quiet campaign to lift the federal excise tax on all-channel television sets. Members hope that action along this line can be taken at the next session of Congress. They are convinced, according to Senator Frederick G. Payne (R), Maine, that this will spur development of UHF stations. ; Payne says that removal of the excise tax will offset the manufacturer's cost differential between the production of sets for very high frequency only and the all-channel sets. Chairman Warren Magnuson (D), Washington, . of the Senate commerce committee, has just written the House subcommittee on excise taxes strongly urging that the necessary steps be taken to eliminate the tax on all-channel sets. The House unit initiates such legislation. SENATOR BORAH WAS WRONG In an earlier era, it seems clear, the advocates of the federal tax had no conception of the extent to which it would grow and the tremendous portion it would take from the earnings of the people. In defending this tax, the late Senator Borah once said: "The great and honored lawyer, Joseph Choate, denounced such a tax as socialistic. He said that if you can levy a tax of two per cent, you may lay a tax of fifty per cent or a hundred percent? "Who will lay the tax of fifty per cent or a hundred per cent? "Whose equity, sense of fairness, of justice, of patriotism, does he question? "Why the representatives of the American people not only that, but the intelligence, the fairness, the justice of the people themselves, to whom their representatives are always answerable." Sen. Borah was a famous and able man, but in thi3 case he could hardly have been more wrong. An income tax of 50 per cent now applies at levels which are far from great wealth. And in the top bracket the tax is 91 per cent only nine per cent short of the total expropriation that Joseph Choate feared. Moreover, even in relatively modest brackets, the tax collector hits very hard. Taxes, direct and indirect, account for about one-third of a 7,500 annual income. And a man earning $85 a week works more hours to pay his taxes than to pay for hi3 food and clothing com bined. THE IDEAL PHYSICIAN What makes "an ideal physician?" Dr. P. H. Woutat of Grand Forks, North Dakota, has provided his answer, and it's a compelling one. ' The ideal physician, first, must be a man of top abilities, faultless personal habits, and the talent to inspire confidence and respect in others. He must be active in community affairs of all kinds, and a frequent church goer. He must work on and contribute liberally to fund raising campaigns for hospitals, young peoples' organizations, homes for the aged, charities and other good works. He must be active in local and state medical societies and must be faithful in attendance at hospital staff meetings, as a participant educator. Finally Dr. Woutat says: "But above all this, he must never fail to give his patients the finest possible medical service, keeping abreast of medical progress by reading, attendance at medical meetings, and taking frequent post-graduate courses. He must be a tireless worker and improve his public relations by spending adequate time with his patients, answering urgent calls promptly, day or night, and by not keeping his patients waiting. This must all most certainly be done for what has been vaguely defined a3 a reasonable fee." HEALTH FPU TODAY By W. W. BALER. M. D. Director of Health Education American Medical Association What A Vacation Docs For You II. Vacations Are Necessary Yesterday I made the point that vacations are necessary. Today I propose to show why. j The basic reason for vacations A is the physiological phenomenon called fatigue. This is a normal ' manifestation which occurs in response to activity. The person in good health responds with the 1 slow development of a condition 1 in which he is no longer able to j function physically or mentally with lull eliectiveness. II this is carried on too far, exhaustion results. Muscular fatigue is demonstrated in the laboratory by applying electrical stimuli to the muscle of a frog's leg. This is attached to a lever which makes a tracing on a revolving drum. When the stimulus is applied, the muscle jerks and makes a mark on the drum. As these stimuli are produced over a period of time, the responses become weaker and finally cease. If the stimuli are spaced at long intervals, the responses last longer. If the stimuli come closer together fatigue takes place more quickly. Basic Example This is a crude demonstration of the fact that muscle becomes incapable of responding to stimuli. Chemical studies of" what takes place in t h e muscle show that supply of glycogen or animal starch which furnishes the muscular energy is deleted and in its place there is an accumulation of waste products, prominent among which is lactic acid. Fatigue is the combined effect of the exhaustion of fuel plus the accumulation of waste. Fatigue naturally takes place faster in the isolated frog muscle than it would in the same muscle living in the body of a live frog. This is because circulation brings new food supplies and removes waste. Fatigue lias been demonstrated by the simple experiment of attaching a string, with a weight on the other end. to the index finger, running the string over a pulley and then having the individual alternately crook and extend the finger for as long as he can. Ultimately, fatigue makes it no longer possible to operate the muscles. Fatigue is overcome by rest. It may also be overcome by a change of activity. Everyone knows the individual who is too tired to work but not too tired to play. We have all experienced the let-down feeling at the end of the day's work when we have fought our way home thru crowded automobile traffic or on sardine-packed commuter trains, sul way or busses. Arriving home, we want nothing more than to crawl into bed and stay there. Often we are too tired to eat. Such fatigue is not physical but emotional. The stay-at-home housewife, bored by routine duties, has exactly the same reaction. This can be a situation in which small stimuli may flare into large quarrels. Let the man suggest to his wife the possibility of going out that evening to a lecture, let us say on the efficient management of the home. She may yawn in his face or she may aim a skillet at his head. Fatigue Vanishes Let him suggest, instead, that she put on her best bib and tucker and they dine out and go to a movie or a play or some other form of entertainment which she particularly enjoys. Away goes fatigue. Or let the wife make the first suggestion. Her husband has been busy in the office all day, struggling with problems and she suggests that this is a good time to sit down and discuss the budget, the ever-mounting bills and the overdraft at the bank. He will probably bite his cigar in two, push away from the dinner table and slam the bedroom door. But let her intimate that their very best friends are coming over for a session of Scrabble or bridge or something he likes to do and a broad smile lights up his face and he says "Bring 'em on and we'll take 'em to the cleaners." Here is the principle and philosophy of vacations. It is based on the importance of change. The "holiday" of the postman who takes a long hike thru open country has often been made the subject of jokes. Yet it may not be as funny as it seems. True, he is still walking, but he is well-equipped for that. Instead of walking thru dingy city streets, dodging vicious dogs and distributing endless amounts of mail, lie now does his tramping on country lanes. Or he climbs mountains or follows brooks and rivers. He sees, feels, hears and smells new stimuli all around and he can come back a new man. When you plan your vacation, therefore, the essence of the vacation is change.

Due to her recent surgery, and to subsequent adhesions, Mari is having to take things very easy. AS FOR Kim Novak, she admits she hasn't seen Mac Krim since New Year's. "I still love Mac in my own way," she says, "but we don't have as much in common as when we first started going together several years ago. Then, I was just starting in the business and I had various other interests. Now I am immersed in my career," "She's not kidding. After "Jeanne Eagels." she is slated to do "Pal Joey" with Frank Sinarta and, latter (in all likelihood), "Bell, Book and Candle" with Rex Harrison. TO CONTINUE the chain. John Ireland, whom . Kim has been dating of late, is supposed to meet with estranged wife Joanne Dru for a final signing of the property agreement pursuant to a divorce.

LADIES! 60 SOUTH FOR A liUBBY By Hal Boyle NEW YORK UV-Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: That ladies seeking a husband may find the best hunting in the United States in the South... There, census figures show, five of six women of marriageable age already have landed a man, but one of every four men is still single. (Maybe it's because he takes snuff.) That soap is believed to have first come into limited use about the time of Christ..,.infant mortality today is lowest in countries COURTROOM By Will Bernard Phyllis and Chester, a child less couple, were fondly certain that little ' girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice. So they jumped at the chance to adopt Baby Millicent. Disenchantment set in fast. The first five years were tough and the second five years were tougher. When Millicent reached her 11th birthday, more rambunctious than ever, they went to court in despair. "We want to cancel the adoption," they pleaded. "The law says an adoption can be can celed for good cause, and we've got it. Millicent is defiant, mis chievous, wild, destructive and sassy. In short, she's a brat." "They need a better reason than that," replied a spokesman for the child. "After all, an adoption isn't something to be lightly cast aside." Should the court cancel the adoption? No because the fault might well lie with the parents instead of the .child. The judge said: "Disrespect and disobedience without more, is rather a confession of failure on the part of the parents than a grievance against the child." The judge added that Millicent was still too young to be classified as a hopeless case. (State laws vary. For personal .guidance, see your local attorney.) CONTRACT AGREED ON IRONTON. Ohio LB A contract agreement was reached Friday be tween Carlisle Tile Co. at nearby Coal Grove and Local 52 of the United Stone and Allied Produc tion orkers of America. Local President Elmer McKnight' de clined to disclose details. having the largest per capita use of soap. That the $20 bill is the only one that has a picture of the White House on it It also bears the portrait of Andy Jackson, a Denv ocratic president, but Democrats complain only Republicans can afford to see it. That the mountain goat is per haps the only horned mammal that regularly sits on its haunches. (This item, I know, will bring me 816 letters from secretaries saying. "How about the old goat I work for? He does nothing but sit on his haunches. and if he doesn't have horns, he ought to!'") That Britain's war with France in 1695 was partly paid for by a tax on bachelors....but is that any odder than modern wars in which even the fighting soldier is taxed? That an Iowa farmer named Don Raddagrew a record corn stalk 31 feet 3 inches...or nearly twice tlie height of the average Texan. That Rosalind Russell, chosen one of the world's best -dressed women, has 18 changes of costume as "Aunt Mame" in the Broadway show....("That beats me by three," says my wife.

That the one question most often asked me by strange women at cocktail parties is, "Why doesn't the baseball umpire hold up his left hand to indicate a ball, just as he does his right hand to call a strike?"....the only reason I can think of Is that umpires probably need to keep the fingers of one hand free to count with. SEMINARY POSSIBLE CLEVELAND WV-Columbus was mentioned here Friday as the prob able site for a proposed four-million-dollar Methodist seminary. Dr. Oscar Thomas Olson, chairman of a nine-member committee screen ing possible sites, said, "the trend is to locate the seminary in the center of the state."

JOHN MASTERS in "Bugles and a Tiger," tells of an occasion where Napoleon chided the mayor of a French town for failing to give him the customary salute of guns when he arrived for a visit. The mayor bumbled that he had not received , advance notice of the Emperor's visit, that there was no one about who knew how to fire the cannon, that the powder was wet, and dangerous in this dry season to boot. Noting that Napoleon was not taking these alibis with particularly good grace, the mayor added, "Besides, Your Majesty, we have no cannon." Teacher In a kindergarten class told her charges, "Anybody who has to leave the room should hold up two fingers." From the rear of the class came a scornful, "How's that going to help?"
