Ann Landers answers your problems TIZZY By Kate Osann Dear Ann Landers: I am married to a man who drowns everything in catsup. Before we were married I noticed Louie's mother always had two bottles on the table and the whole family went for it like crazy. But have you ever heard of catsup on fried eggs? Well that's the way Louie likes 'em. Lots of people use catsup with French fries—but on mashed potatoes, too? The other night we were at the home of friends and someone mentioned that Louie could never be a blood donor because he probably doesn't have blood —only catsup. This got a big laugh. Then Louie said, "I eat catsup on everything, even ice cream." With that, the hostess brought him a dish of chocolate ice cream and a bottle of catsup. All eyes were on Louie as he |Of those who have been invited, poured about one-third of the grave, gawking and rubbernecking. If a widow or mother faints, their day is complete. Then they crowd into the car of a relative because they know a free meal is in sight. Speaking for myself, I hate funerals and dread it when I have to attend one. Will you tell me what makes people WANT to see others grieving?— P.L.R. Dear P.L.R.: Morbid curiosity —the same twisted emotion that makes some people rush to the scene of an accident. One in 50 wants to help—but most of the accident-chasers want only to look. Of course it's sick, but nothing can be done to keep such people away unless the funeral is declared private and a guard is posted at the door with the list bottle on the ice cream. This was after three vodka martinis and I was hoping he would get sick as a dog. But he didn't. 1 got sick. This morning I phoned our doctor and asked if so much catsup could injure Louie's health. He said "I cheek your husband regularly. He is in good condition. Catsup won't hurt him." What do I do now?—SEEING RED Dear Red: Now accept the fact that Louie is hooked on catsup. Keep plenty on hand and make no mention of his excesses. When he grows up he won't resort to cheap parlor stunts in an effort to capture in audience. Dear Ann Landers; In a recent column you said, "People don't have to be invited to the lome of the bereaved after the fjneral—they just go." I wish you hadn't printed that, Ann. In our town we have a couple of nutty w^omen who show up at every funeral whether they know the family or not. Dear Ann Landers: Our school is having a big dance. This is one dance I don't want to miss, no matter what. I'm scared to death some creep will ask me and I'll be stuck. On the other hand, if I turn the creep down I may not get asked by anyone better. Than I'd end up staying home. As you can see, I am in a terrible spot. Any advice?—UNCERTAIN Dear Uncertain: I've never bought the idea that any date is better than none.

PEARSON United Press International SACRAMENTO (UPI) — The California State Senate's request for a state court ruling on reapportionment rested today with a judge who said it might be "putting the cart before the horse." Superior Court Judge Frank G. Finnegan Friday heard arguments on a motion to throw the Senate's request out of court. Then he expressed his own fears that the Senate might be acting prematurely by seeking a ruling before the legislature has enacted a reapportionment biU. The senate's court action is aimed at obtaining a State Supreme Court ruling on which of the state constitutional provisions on senate districts, if any, still stand. The question arises because the senate is under federal court order to remap its county-based districts on a population basis by July 1. Law Violations It is impossible to do this without violating at least some of the provisions of the State Constitution, such as the ones limiting a county to one senator and a senator to no more than three counties. "I won't need my umbrella, Mother. Today I'm all drip dry!" National Window Dynasties lining up By Lyle C. Wilson Redlands Daily facts Monday, May 17,1965 - 9 War in Viet Nam increasing in its intensity. North feels cost ivhether it was proper for the court to rule before the legislature had completed action. Silver then added he considered the senate suit "premature." He said the reapportionment plan was "not yet ripe for adjudication." Selvin replied that the senate was not seeking a ruling on its bill, but on general constitutional provisions governing what it might become. He said the legislature should not be asked to "gamble" on passing a possibly anconstitutional measure. Selvin cited legal precedents, emphasizing a recent Colorado reapportionment case where the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that "the state courts should settle state constitutional questions" on an already-approved reapportionment plan there. Federal Suit Silver doubted that the senate —admittedly unhappy over the reapportionment order—had acted in "good faith" by bringing the state action while its appeal of the federal court order was pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. He called it "a last ditch attempt to stall the appeal" before the high court. Selvin accused Silver of making "unsui)ported and unsworn assertions." That Johnson • Kennedy feud you have been reading about is no feud at all but merely a perfectly legitimate play by the power-hungry Kennedys to regain the White House when LBJ moves out. The Kennedys are shooting at Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey. They have disliked Humphrey for years and now more than ever because Hubert got the vice presidential job Bobby wanted. The Kennedys appear to be thinking now in terms of 1972 when it is properly assumed that President Johnson after two terms will attempt to hand over the White House to Humphrey. Any idea that the Kennedys aspire to block LBJ's renomma- tion in 1968 is ridiculous. It is not possible to prevent the re- nomination for a second term of even an impopular president. For proof, examine the political history of 1932 and 1948 when Herbert Hoover and Harry S. Truman, respectively, were re­ nominated. Johnson would not flinch from a Johnson-Kennedy feud. He invited trouble on that front last year when he disqualified Robert F. Kennedy tor the vice presidential nomination. Later LBJ connived with Mayor Robert F. Wagner of New York to prevent Robert Kennedy from accumulating a political power Roosevelt had been serving obscurely as imdersecretary of commerce by appointment of the late John F. Kennedy. Chairmanship of EOC will invite political attention to Roosevelt and increase his availability for nomination to high state office in New York. He is a legitimate New Yorker and he wants to be governor. FDR Jr. possesses a magic name. His pedestrian political record does not match his initials. After his father's death but while his politically powerful mother was alive and active. New York Democrats refused in 1954 to nominate FDR Jr. for governor. He won the nomina tion for attorney general, however, and was defeated by Republican Jacob J. Javits, now a U. S. senator and then a member of the House of Representatives. Kennedy Able Operator On his record so far, Robert F. Kennedy should be able to seize control of the New York Democratic organization from the second and third raters now in charge. Frank Jr. and his inherited political glamor may help them to check Bobby. But Kennedy will remain the ablest operator in the New York State Democratic party. What Bobby needs now to help him in 1972 to send Hum- Viet Nam Reappraisal (I) By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst SAIGON — Deatli lurks on the streets of Saigon. In the hamlets and larger towns of South Viet Nam, Viet Cong Communist terrorists kill or kidnap an average of more than 1,000 civilians each month. Military maps show a steady increase in the areas under Viet Cong control. Out of a population of 14 million, at least three million are under Communist sway. The number has been growing steadily. It has become popular to say that Ho Chi Minh, the wispy leader of Communist North Viet Nam who seeks control of both North and South, has no need to negotiate a settlement of the war because he is winning anyway. Certainly he shows no signs of negotiating now. And an aminous buildup of Communist manpower in South Viet Nam's northern provinces, close to the big air base at Da Nang where 9,000 U.S. Marines stand guard, suggests that the Communists will make at least one more convulsive try to seize still moire ground before even considering the conference table. Yet this is not the war of a year ago with its record of fail ure or even the war of last Jan uary. It Can Be Won This correspondent who witnessed the beginning of the huge American build-up in South Viet Nam in 1962 and is concluding a second visit, finds reason today for a cautious optimism that this does not need to be a no- win war; that, in fact, it can be won. There remain great dangers and imponderables. U.S. air strikes against the North, the presence of the bat tie-ready 9,000 U.S. Marines at the Da Nang air base and the steadily deepending U.S. involve ment in South Viet Nam carry with them the danger tliat this base in New York State.

Roosevelt Jr. into the political ring with Kennedy. He has designated Frank Jr. to be chairman of a five member Equal Opportunity Commission (EOC). ocratic Action is a solid power base in New York State. Of course he needs brother Teddy's Massachusetts, too. So far the Kennedys are doing all right. It is their misfortune that to stop Humphrey they must affront Johnson. That is a dangerous play. Green light for 'go' LOS ANGELES (UPI)—Jack Roman, 26, got a ticket Friday night, but he says it was worth it. Roman was stopped at a red light while on a date with his girlfriend. Just before the light turned green, Roman leaned over and kissed his girlfriend. "I guess I just lost track of time during the kiss," he said later. The officer who wrote the ticket had been behind Roman's car at the light. The comment on the citation read: "While stopped at a traffic signal had one long kiss — all the time during the green Ught." will, indeed, become an American war. And with it not only is the danger that tlie South Vietnamese will lose what enthusiasm they have for the present war but also that it then will escalate into the larger war that no one wants. The great imponderable is the final attitude to be adopted by the Red (3hinese and the Soviet Union. But as of today here is a balance sheet: The Failures —The United States under-estimated Communist determination and over-estimated South Vietnamese capabilities. —Despite huge expenditures now totaling $4.4 million per day and the doubling, -tripUng and quadrulping of American forces assigned to South Viet Nam, the measures taken by the United States actually were half measures and lacked a -poUcy. —In a war in which people are more important than geog raphy, no sustained effort was made to win their loyalties to the government's side. Clear- and-hold military operations cleared but did not hold. —A year and a half of poUti- cal chaos after the fall of President Ngo Dinh Diem led to an accompanying deterioration of the war effort. The Communists seemed about to win by de fault. Neutralism showed steady gains. The Credits —The U.S. decision to carry the air war to North Viet Nam marked the beginning of a positive U.S. policy and removed a Communist - privileged sanctuary. —The new government of Prime Minister Phan Huy Quat shows encouraging signs of at- tainmg stability. Both Buddhist and Catholic leaders have assured him of their support and the government is putting re newed energy mto efforts to extend pacified areas and to win the loyalities of the people. Neutralism is on the decline. —The number of Communist Viet Cong being killed has increased dramatically smce U.S. jet fighter-bombers began giving support to South Vietnamese ground forces. Proven losses to the Viet Cong by air attack are reported at a total 1,000 a month. The actual rate is believed to be at least twice that. —Within the last two months, the U.S. 7th Fleet began actively to assist the Solth Vietnamese in efforts to cut off the flow of waterborne supplies to the Viet Cong and new efforts are being made at least to slow the infiltration of Communist manpower down the Ho Chi Minh Trail. —The appearance of North Vietnamese draftees suggests that the Communist manpower pool, based upon the 90,000 South Vietnamese fighters who went north after the division of Viet Nam in 1954, is running low. North Economy Hurting American advisors believe that the gradual destruction of North Viet Nam's communications routes, especially its bridges, must be hurting the North Vietnamese economy. They believe that the recent capture of large food and weapons stocks also must be hurtmg the Viet Cong. The Quat government, aided by a $285 million annual U.S. effort to help build a stable South Viet Nam economy and by more than 300 U.S. field advisors covering every South Vietnamese province, largely has abandoned the old, isolated strategic village which proved an easy prey to marauding Viet Cong and has adopted the idea of the spreading oil slick. This plan, called "hop tac" (literally, working together) aims first at military pacification of a given area, then the uprootmg of the Communist un derground and finally the training of a local admmistration with the necessary strength to defend itself. Military forces are to remain until all tests have been met. An open-arms campaign to welcome Viet Cong defectors is having moderate success. Prime Minister Phan Huy Cilurch leader SYOSSET, N.Y.

The senate has passed to the assembly a bill violating several state constitutional provisions, including these three. If the assembly amends it, it will have to return to the senate. Attorney Phill Silver, whose original federal court suit resulted in the order for the senate to reapportion, told the judge that the current senate action should be dismissed because the senate already had voted on its bill, making the question "moot."

Finnegan questioned whether a controversy yet existed which the court could judge. Selvin said it did because there were differing views on what the legislature's reapportionment plan should include.

JiJtcrs \TRY NEW LUCKY STRIKE FILTERS Leukemia death doubSes among white children To fly to London HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — Actress Patricia Neal, who narrowly escaped deatli from three major strokes Feb. 17, will leave for her home in London Monday. Miss Neal is expecting a child in July. CHICAGO (UPI) — The leukemia death rate for White children is about double that for non-whites, a statistical report in the Journal of the American Medical Association said today. The report said leukemia deaths rise to a "towering peak" of about 6 per 100,000 White children at age 4, then drop sharply. The death rate for boys is much higher than girls from leukemia, cancer of the brain and nervous system and especially lymphoma, the article said, but the same from bone cancer and cancer of the kidney. The article was based on a study of 39.225 children who died of cancer in the United States between 1950-59. It said of every 10 deaths 4 or 5 were from leukemia, 2 from cancer of the brain and nervous system and 1 from lymphoma. Quat's government, trea.iing a thin line between the Buddhists, the minority Catholics and the military, is pressing an educational campaign against the Viet Cong and claims to have eliminated most of tlie neutralist sentiment which a few montlis ago was demanding a negotiated peace, whatever the cost. Weaknesses Remain There remain important weaknesses. South Vietnamese desertions still are running at the rate of 21 per thousand. Weapons losses to the Vict Cong remain too high. In one week of April they ran at a ratio of two lost to every one captured. That was considered a fairly good week. There is no evidence yet th.-it the flow of approximately 1.500 infiltrators from North Viet Nam has ben slowed appreciably. South Vict Nam's regular army totals 240.000. Regional forces number about 99,000 and popular forces 104,000. There are, in addition 20,000 civil irregular defense groups wliich function somewhat in the manner of friendly guerrillas. Although the latter two forces have most contact with Viot Cong guerrillas their effectiveness remains questionable and their desertion rate high, especially if removed from home. Against them are ranged up to 45,000 main and local Com- mimist forces, plus guerrilla forces estimated at up to 100,300. The job facing the South \'iet- namese and their American advisors is made startlingly clear by recently compiled population control figures. Of the eight million persons living in the heavily-populated Mekong Delta, the Communists as of Jan. 1, 1963, were estimated to control 21 per cent. As of January this year, the figure had jumped to 24 per cent. In the coastal plain, with a population of three million. Communist control went from 19 per cent at the beginning of 1963, to 21 per cent this year. In the more sparsely populated highlands, the figure has remained stable at about 50 per cent. These are the figures that must be reversed. PUT YOUR CAR (N EXPERT HANDS. We guarantee! you quality,^'^ reliable service and repair backed by 40 years in the automotive business.
