McKeithen Backs 'Code of Ethics 1 BATON ROUGE (AP) - Gov. John McKeithen took a bare- knuckled stance against House Foes of his Code of Ethics Bill and said he would look upon opposing votes as unfriendly. When the legislature returns Monday, the House will be ready for a final legislative vote on his two Senate-passed bills marking out unethical conduct for elected state officials and state employes. Administration floor leaders Thursday squelched a harassing allack by Code of Ethics critics. House members voted against a move to put the bill back into a committee for a new hearing. Rep. Risley Triche, Assumption Parish, launched the move, armed with the unexpected appearance of a legislative bureau memorandum questioning constitutionality of some features of the legislative bill. It spells out details of the unprecedented state program. The companion constitutional proposal simply gives authority for the state to adopt the new plan. Should the Code of Etihcs win passage in its present form, Louisiana would become the first state to put a lid on elected state officials using public office for private gain. The codes elsewhere are for state employes. In a news conference, McKeithen said i! House members vote against it, "we will not feel that they are friendly toward our administration." McKeithen said ho didn't care what amendments were adopted, as long as the sponsoring group, The Council for a Better Louisiana, felt such steps would not, ruin the bill. The governor said he believes the CABL bill would not prevent legislators from doing anything they're doing now, unless they were trying to make money off the state in insurance, banking or architectural business. Pro-Wallace Bills Face Time Factor BATON ROUGE ( AP) -Rep. Parey Branton, who had two bills killed Wednesday to secure Alabama Gov. George Wallace a place on the Louisiana Presidential ballot, said Thursday the people should vote to replace men who "sold them out" on the civil rights law. The Webster Parish segregation leader is trying—with lime running out—to get action on his two bills. The 60-day session ends Thursday and one of his House bills won't, come up until Monday, the. other Tuesday. Even if adopted, they still would have to find their way through Senate legislative processes, raring against time. j The first would set September j 10 as n second congressional primary, which could be used by Gov. John McKeithen and the Democratic State Central Committee for a presidential primary, if they wanted, Branton said. The second bill would direct the Democratic committee to offer two slates in a Presidential primary. Louisiana, with 10 electoral votes, has no presidential primaries, and Loyalist Democrats are opposing such steps. In a special statement aimed at the national civil rights action, Branton said, "The duty of the Legislature is clear . . . we have an urgent responsibility to enact legislation which will enable our citizens to get this monster off their backs. "We can do this," he continued, "by giving them an opportunity to cast their votes—and to cast them where they count- to replace the men who have sold them out. We need wait no longer." Branton said the new civil rights act "will not be enforced outside of the South until after the November election, "We can expect an invasion of professional agitators followed by an army of federal agents" he said. "Our local public officials, our local police and our local bourls will be rendered helpless to maintain public peace and law and order. The master plan then calls for federal police to take over local anil state government. This pattern is already painfully clear in our sister state of Mississippi. We can expect the same in Louisiana." Branton said, "The highly publicized signature by President Johnson of the falsely labeled civil rights act marks one of the blackest days in American history. It represents a key victory for those who seek to destroy our constitutional republic—one sovereign nation of 50 sovereign states—and erect on its bones one massive Hitler style police state, where forced "equality" and "collective freedom" will make all m e n slaves." ON COMPENSATION McKeithen Fails As 'Peacemaker' BATON ROUGE (AIM -- C,ov. .Iiihn McKeitlien says lie. walked into a hornet's nest when lie tried to iron out inequities in Hie workmen's compensation law for (he small pulpwood haulers. He tried to strike a compromise between industry and la- j t bor, he told his news confer-1 '. ence Thursday. 1 • But the effort got out of hand, j he said, "and I just failed to i do it." ' The governor expressed fear | (tie new federal civil rights leg-) islation would hurt the racial ! situation. He came up with a plan to ; curb special pay for standing i legislative committees, talked i more about a fall special ses- • sion, and hinted that variousI areas of stale finances are; pinched and more funds will be ' needed. In discussion of the workmen's compensation law revisions pending in ihe legislature. McKeilhen said ho is a expert in She field and the revisions originated in his Columbia living room alter his election. The legislation cleared the Senate and went to ihe House, where the administration had added some compromise amendments only to see the sponsors abandon the bill. Another bill which originated in the House has been amended similarly and sent to the Senate floor, where a vote is due early next week. McKeithen said he tried to help both industry and labor but had reached the point that "my inclination is to wash my hands of the whole thing." The bill was intended (o help tiie small pulpwood and lumber operators, he said, more than anybody cKe. Large industry spokesmen told him, he said, that they were not concerned with Louisiana compensation laws. Pulpwood operators approached him and said they were being hurt unfairly and !>.• agreed to help them. Ho \-.i\<i ihe legislation prepared aiid introduced, he said. He told them, lie -aid, thought the total disability vision were probably Uw but they perhaps cuuid leave them in as a bargaining instrument. To hi.-, surprise, he said, the Senate passed tho legislation. Amendments his administration offered, he said, would do what he originally sought. "The bill got out of the hands of (he people who came to see me," he said. "They wanted all or nothing." Labor supported his amendments, he said, only "upon my insistence." When asked for comment on the new federal civil rights legislation, McKeithon suggested perhaps he shouldn't. But, he said, "it is my honest feeling that the civil rights legislation is going lo hurt the racial situation. "I hope \ve can avoid any incidents in Louisiana that might cau.ic distress tor any of utii peoples iif briii'4 discredit on us " HP \\n:> trying to Keep his ad- mim-ira'Niii Mil of differences between the slates rights and lovalisl wings of the Democratic Party.

They contain stagnant nir: fc ct 7 inches? which must bo forced out by n """'" fresh supply of oxygen and forced expiration. The trick is to get the diaphragm to work at full capacity until it becomes automatic. Many persons lift the shoulders and the neck during inspiration when they become short of breath or want to take a deep breath. This Is especially true of those with emphysema who can ill afford this typo of Inefficient ond burdensome breathing. The diaphragm Is supposed to go down during Inspiration but remains stationary and functionless when the shoulders and neck are raised. It is bettor physiologically to protrude the abdomen during Inspiration so that the diaphragm will drop as low as possible. The chest wall expands simultaneously and the combination brings in a maximum of air. The opposite is done during expiration to squeeze air out of the lungs. The abdominal muscles are contracted ns the chest, wall relaxes. Tills Is abdominal Reply Parlly, but heredity deserves most of the credit.
