That's a lot of fortunate people. Enjoy the Outdoors But be Prepared Each spring, the obvious benefits of living in this area and in a small town re-assert themselves. Though Blytheville has no nearby Kentucky Lake or Norfork, it still can afford the average fisherman and boater some pretty nice water retreats. And as the weather, after a particularly rigorous winter, begins to warm, thousands will be out in boats, either in search of fish or merely to enjoy the hum of their motors, the fresh air and the warm sunshine. Any one who had much experience in fishing, boating and hunting in the Big Lake area can recall one or more sportsmen who furnish paradoxes. These men fall pretty well into two categories. First, there's the fellow who uses only a motor which is checked regularly by himself or a mechanic. This same man is quite aware of the' load limits of his boat and never arranges a fishing party of more persons than the boat can safely carry. In the extreme, he may even insist his boat, which is always in the best of shape, carry a life jacket or two for those who can't swim even the narrow floodway Ditch and usually you can find one of those floating boat cushions among his gear. . A very careful fellow ? In one respect, yes. But this same man wil! drive his car at speeds up to and including about 95 mp.h going to and from the lake area. Of course, his counterpart is the fellow who pets his car, never exceeds the speed limit, wouldn't think of spinning his tires, but loads a small boat to the gunwales, attaches a powerful motor to the rear, seats his kids up on the bow an speeds off up the ditcli full throttle. Then of course, there's the third type who gives not a darn either on the highway or on the water. He's out to prove lie can be as large a menace one place as the other. Point is, there is no place where it is safe to be unsafe. Summertime sports, especially where water and motors are involved, afford a great opportunity to escape the concrete, television, telephone «nd other wearing devices of the twentieth century, By their very nature, howler, they afford opportunities for serious accidents. Have fun, but be careful; Shifting Political Issues • Sometimes in an election year the issues are ready-made and the opposition party has a field day. In other situations the combatants have to scratch for really good campaign material. A party out of office now and then finds its task complicated by differences between what its presidential candidates may be urging on the hustings and what its elected representatives may be doing. This can have the effect of cutting at least part of the ground from under a party which is trying to strike an ag- ' gressive campaign posture. This year the Democrats have been landed one easy issue—President Eisenhower's health. The President's own frankness on this question thrust it prominently into, the campaign. In other areas, however, the going has beenjnore difficult. The Democrats believe that their prime issue, aside from Mr. Eisenhower's health is the steady, marked decline in farmers' income from crops and livestock. There is no doubt that this decline is, and ought to be, a matter of high concern to anyone bent upon safeguarding the economic health and welfare of this nation. But merely stating this does not mean that voters generally will act next November with this problem high in their consciousness. Evidence suggests they will do so in farm states where the impact of the income drop is heavy. The outlook elsewhere is inconclusive. Furthermore, those candidates who have been urging a return to high rigid farm price supports have had their work made tougher by the recent Sentae vote on the issue. With Democrats in control of the upper house, it voted 54 to 41 to block restoration of high supports. Despite the advertised position of Adlai Stevenson, Senator Kefauver and others, 13 Democrats voted with the majority against high supports. Presidential prospects taking the opposite position may find farmers somewhat more skeptical than before when it comes to these candidates' chances of delivering on their promises. Some Democrats, too, want to make much of what they consider the/Eisenhower administration's overgenerosity with the country's natural resources. Especially in the richly endowed West, candidates planned to hit this hard. Once again, the matter has been clouded by the recently vetoed bill to free natural gas producers from federal regulation. . On this measure, the Senate Democratic leadership pressed for removal of U.S. control, and 22 Democrats— a shade less than half those voting—backed the leaders. This does not mean these issues may not somehow be resharpened between now and November, or that new and perhaps far more powerful issues may not develop. But it does suggest, as the Republicans long ago discovered in their long ordeal on the outuside, that life for a politician fighting for the nation's highest stakes can be enormousuly troublesome. VIEWS OF OTHERS Too Hot or Too Cold? These past-winter yet pre-spring days are an inexorable test for inter-office compatibility. In any business organization employing two or more workers, the employes are Indeed fortunate and unique If all agree on the temperature of th* en* closed atmosphere. In the winter months and the summer months, there's usually a clean-cut decision—it's either cold and everybody agrees, or it's hot and •very- body agrees. But watch out for those Inbetween periods, particularly If the business employs members of both sexes, Women (and It's a known fact) have a certain amount of ice water In their bloodstreams. This Is unfortunate. Or either Its unfortunate that most men don't have those cc's of unheatable liquid, to be quite fair about this thing. At any rate, it's common to find some members of the working; clan donning sweaters, while neighboring workers fairly drip with prespiration.

Next Question unti m MM SIMM * HALENKM/ urn m im KHRUSHCHEV Peter Ed son's Washington Column — EvenifKevauver Wins Them AII, He Will Have It Rough in Convention WASHINGTON —(NEA)— Tennessee's Estes Kefauver still has a long hard row to hoe in his one- man campaign to take the Democratic presidential nomination away from ex-Gov. Adlal Stevenson. Following his primary victories in New Hampshire and Minnesota, Kefauver is entered in nine other state preference races. If he should win them all in a clean sweei which his enthusiastic followers are considering—he would have 275 pledged delegate votes for the first ballot at the Democratic convention in August. Senator Kefauver Is of course counting on picking up stray and unpledged delegates in other states to build him up. But with 1,372 convention votes allocated to the states for this Chicago spectacular, 686% are needed to win. Kefauver must therefore more than double his most optimistic total before he can even come close to copping the nomination from the Democratic party bosses who want to stop him. Kefauver and his managers ars therefore taking a close look at entering four more primaries. They arc: May 8—Indiana—deadline for filing March 29. May 15—Nebraska—deadline for filing April 3. June 5—Montana—deadline for filing April 28. Jun 5—South Dakota—deadline for filing May 6. The first three are preference primaries—mere popularity contests. South Dakota's primary is to elect convention delegates. But only 62 convention votes are involved in these four races—Indiana 26, Nebraska 12 .Montana 16, South Dakota ight. If Kefauver could win all these races on top of the others in which he is now entered, he would still have only 337 convention votes— just under half of what it takes. In 1952 Senator Kefauver had 340 convention votes on the first ballot. Gov. Stevenson had 273 and Senator Russell 268. The Democratic machine dumped Kefauver in spite of this showing. But the senator's supporters now figure the convention won't dare do that again. Senator Kefauver will be in direct competition with Gov. Stevenson in only three of his remaining primaries—California, Florida and Alaska. In New Jersey the Democratic organization slate of delegates is lined up to support Gov. Robert B. Meyner as favorite son, but they are expected to switch to Stevenson. The schedule of these primaries lines up as follows: April 3—Wisconsin—elect delegates for 28 con- vention votes. April 17—New Jersey—elect delegates for 36 convention votes. April 24—Alaska- preference primary, six conventio votes. May 1—District of Columbls —elect delegates for six conventio votes. May 7—Maryland—prefer ence primary, 18 convention votes May 29—Florida—elect delegaeL for 28 convention votes. June 5— California—elect delegates for 6 convention votes. . Senator Kefauver is also countin on the 32 votes from his nativ< Tennessee which as a nominatin! primary on August 2. He also ex pects 16 from Oregon, which ha a wide-open preference primary on May 18, the high man getting a bound delegation. • Senator Kefauver would like to enter more primaries if he could but there's a limit to even his human endurance. In March, Kefauver campaigned in seven states from New Hamp shire to California. He shook no body knows how many thousands of hands, made 12 major speeches three national radio and television appearances, and countless shor talks. This was in addition to zipping back to Washington foi Senate voles. His tentative schedule for Apri will take him to 10 stats from Florida to Oregon. As a demon traveler, he beats even John Foster Dulles. the Doctor Says — By EDWIN P JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service. A correspondent who says she I 89 years old asks a question which I cannot answer but which never theless raises an interesting sub Ject. She says she has no gra; hairs, was born a blond but nov her hair is light brown and she wants to know why. Indeed, I wish I could answer. The hair color is determined be fore birth by certain factors in herlted from the parents, callet genes. To have true blond hair a per son must have inherited two genes —one from either parent. Dark hair can come from two dark haired genes or from one dark gene and one gene carrying any other shade, of a coloring matter, called melanin. In blond hair.'the yellow ef- Red hair Is present in the person who has either one or two red posits of pigment granules made Black hair contains heavy de- lenes from the parents, feet Is caused by the presence of dilute coloring matter. Red hair is caused by a dissolved red pigment differing from that which makes ilack hair black. In white hair pigment In the hair cells is absent. White hair may be present at birth or can develop during life by gradual loss of pigment. In the Iblho, the eyes also are lacking n coloring matter. However, not all white-haired labies »re albinos and some, es- icclnlly Scandinavians, frequently lave hair which has so little color- n grnatter that It appears prac* Ically white. Many of these have ome coloring in their eyes and annot be called true albinos. Many infants born with extreme- r blond hair get more and more went until the hair mny be ulte dark. Children, as we'll as dults, also may lose pigment and 6 from black to blond or even •hlte hair. Contrary to what seems to have appencd to our 89-,vear-old friend, he htlr tends to lose pigment as advances. The pigment loss oes not develop at (he same rale f speed In nil people. Early gray- ng sometimes seems to 'run in millet. U»ually the pigment los« is slow. Most of us would like to delay the appearance of white hair or to turn white hair back to its original color. Unfortunately, there Is a yet no medicine to restore color ing matter to the hair once it ha been lost—except by dyeing a tinting Lots of things ore more important than money—the trouble is it takes money to buy them, t»u» TV Network Is Failure TOWSQN, Md.

CBS-TV Ready To Make Change By CHARLES MERCEE NEW YORK I*—Some program changes affecting almost every night of the %eek are In the work* for next season on CBS-TV. Trade reports indicate that thr<* are big programs of an hour or longer. But most arc half-hour shows, on film, the oreatlom of Hollywood. The most arnbltioua undertaking will be Playhouse 90, a 90-mlnuU weekly dramatic show to b« produced by Martin Manllus. Variety, the weekly trade Journal ot show business, says this Is dotted for 9:30 p.m. (Eastern Time) Thur«day evenings. and will include eight film entries to be mad* by Columbia Pictures.

Actually the Idea for this program was given a (how-casing several weeks ago when Shower of Stars presented "The Golden Record," a program In which stars who had sold more, than a million recordings of specific songs did their stuff. The public yked It — and so, apparently, doM CBS now. The other weekly hour program, announced previously, will be a Herb Shriner variety show. Thta may move Into a Friday night spot, with the hope of giving that currently 'rather dead evening a shot In the arm.
