12-Tliurs., April 29,1965 Redlands Daily Facts National Window LBJ establishing his image By Lyle C. Wilson . President Johnson will need to ;do better than merely to snap off the electric light in the girl's powder room adjacent to the White House press room. The President did just that the other day. Passing by he noted a gleam of light, snaked his hand inside to the switch and, presto: Darkness fell! This economy saved a penny or so a day and got for the President a bright little three or four paragraphs on page one of the newspapers. This, in turn, added its convincing mite to the image LBJ is establishing for himself as a close man with the taxpayer's buck. This image is pretty well established by now despite the simple arithmetic nue, government of tax reve- expenditures and proposals for future spending. Under the penetrating light of simple arithmetic, the image of LBJ the economizer is bogus. Madison Avenue never did a better job of phonusbalonus even when it shaved a gimmick piece of window glass with shave cream and claimed that it was shaving sandpaper. It is a fact that politicians begin a b o uj \vhere Madison Avenue leaves off. And this goes for Democrats and equally for Republican politicians when they have the opportunity, which is not often. Politicians, in fact, must witB mine and with buck, yours. For example, there are :hose White House economies suggested by a general turning off of lights that are not needed. Your correspondent is examining at this moment the just published Treasury report on receipts and expenditures of the United States government in the first nine months of the current fiscal year. There is a list of expenditures by the Executive Office of the President. This office is not merely the White House and the area in which the President works. It includes also such operations as the Bureau of Budget, National Aeronautics a n c Space Council and a dozen others. All of these including the White House itself and its grounds are government opera tions most directly under a President's control. If there is economy here it is not readily evident. The Treasury reported tha cost of EOF in March of this year was $2,217,372 compara with $1,881,244 in March, 1964 In the first nine months of this fiscal year, EOF cost $17.3 mil lion compared to $15.7 million in the corresponding months o the last preceding fiscal year be poseurs part of the time.

She is so great it is shock ng, something like being in love. Well, you do fall in love with her, and for a variety of per- 'ectly legitimate reasons. If you iave any affection for the kind of circumstances that produced Miss Streisand, then you must Slave affection for the result — she seems to have all of the best of American show busi ness, past and present, wrapped up inside of her, and it just comes bursting out. Yet she is uniquely of this time and place. In her one-hour, one-woman CBS-TV show, she provided ammunition for the argument that she may well be the most supremely talented and complete popular entertainer that this country has ever produced. She simply dwarfed such contempo rary stars as Julie Andrews Elizabeth Taylor, Judy Garland and Carol Burnett. Anything they can do, she can do light years better. A friend callec me after last night's show to say, "she did very well." He was wrong Miss Streisand does not DO what she does. She IS what she does.

SHOW BEAT Oversees duty for McHale's? By Dick Kleiner Hollywood Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. HOLLYWOOD NBA) — To break up the monotony, McHale's Navy may get transferred to Europe next season. It isn't definite yet, but they're whipping up a few sample scripts to see how it works. BETTY, or NUTTIN BUT HUTTON When Betty Button did her first television show in f o u r years — the Gunsmoke episode you'll see on CBS on May 1 — she had a bit of a problem with Amanda Blake. 'The first day," Betty says, "she was very mean. I don't know why, but she was. Oooh, how I hated her! "Well, comes the second day and she doesn't show up. We waited and waited. And then I went into my dressing room and prayed for her. And I prayed for the Lord to remove the hate from my heart. "Well, she showed up soon after that, and it was as if she were a different person. She was just lovely. After the show was all finished, I thanked her for being so gracious. And I told her how I had prayed her through it. And she cried." That's Betty Hutton — emo- tional, religious, hating, loving — and it's good to have her back. She was out of the business for four years, since her series called Goldie. "Goldie broke my heart," she says. "It really destroyed me. I went from 125 pounds to 90 pounds, worrying about it. But I think God meant it to happen. I spent those four years being a mother — I had a baby, and took care of all four of my children. Now she wants a feature film. She's back in the business with both feet. And none of us better forget it. DAVIS, or RAISING THE RUFE Petticoat Junction may not go down in history as advancing American culture, but Rufe Davis will always be grateful to it. It's kept him off the road. Rufe is the old boy from Mangum, Okla., who's been singing and plucking and making jokes along the country trails for 35 years. He's played more barn dances than a nimble-footed hoot owl. The last year before Petticoat Junction started," Rufe says, "I put 87,000 miles on my car. And [ did considerable traveling by railroad and bus, too." Playing Floyd Smoot on the CBS show has made Rufe a real favorite with the country folks. He's as popular as a fly swatter at a picnic. "I went down South not long ago," Rufe says, "and a feller come up to me and he looked me over and said, 'Ain't you Floyd Smoot?' "I allowed as how I was, and the feller said, 'Well, you sure do favor yourself.* " LORNE, or GREENE PASTURES Bonanza has done many things, but possibly the most important is that it has given Lome Green the stature to match his ability. "After the series is over," says Lome, "I'll be in a position to dp some, good things. I remember once when I was an unknown — but just as good an actor as I am today — Ketti Frings wanted me for 'Look Back in Anger' on Broadway. They flew me to New York to read for it. But Hugh Griffith got it, because he was better known then. "That will never happen to me again." Crown of Thorns Botanists do not agree on the plant from which Christ's Crown of Thorns was woven.
