Deliverad by carrier In eWy par week ________ JO A Thought For Today Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit ol tb» Lord is, there Is freedom.— n Cor, 3:17. The fifth freedom, the freedom of individual enterprise, is the keystone of the arch on which the other Four Freedoms rest. This is what freedom means—^Nicholas Murray Butler, American educator. Editorial . . . Girls, Say It Isn't So! IT WAS ONLY a few months ago that English ladies accompanying the London Symphony Orchestra on a tour of the United States wrote off our American gals as downright dowdy because ,«ome of them are wearing their skirts clear down to the knee. Now, a male fashion authority in London declares that Americans are the worst-dressed men in the world. This just about takes care of us Yanks except for the kids— and no doubt some clever English child will comeup with a cute comment on them before long. And in truth, some of our young- Bters do look rather casually dressed at times, especially when thfey have been playing In the mud. The esteemed critic of our masculine fashions— the editor of « tailoring magazine who is appropriately named Taylor (John)— reveals himself as not only a fashion arbiter supreme but also •s a psychologist with an active imagination. He believes American men look as crummy as they do because they have a guilt complex over being relatively affluent when they (the bums) are supposed to be democratically poor. (This, of course. Is ptrtting it crudely. Mr. Taylor's words were much better tailored.) He says, too, that we sartorial slobs over here have embarked upon "an extension of deliberation dishabille." Some of us may not know exactly what he means by that, but it sounds like a dirty crack and we resent it. For all we know, he may be accusing us of being sloppy on purpose! The plain truth is, we American men can look that way without trying. If s a gift we have, and we suspect this dude is Just jealous. In fact, if it weren't for this svispicion, we would be inclined to shrug off Mr. Taylor and his fancy tailor talk as just another sew and sew. So 45 Is Too Old To Work? THOUSANDS OF JOB APPLICANTS over 45 years of age '' have been told they're too old to be hired. It won't help their state of mind to know that a recent issue of the Monthly Labor Review reports that 400 beneficiaries on the Social Security Administration rolls are 100 years old or older. More than 300 of these mature adults are getting benefits based on work they did after they were at least 75 years old. A dozen of them are still employed or self-employed, and the oldest Is 120. So let's help that 45-year-old job seeker down the steps to retirement. Can't we see he's senile? News Briefs BOCA RATON, Fla.

He was 19. Thirteen years later, he realized a dream held by hundreds of thousands of refugees to these shores: he became an American dtizen by natui-aliza- tion. Today at age 73, however, Afroyim is no longer a citizen, although he claims allegiance to the United States. The reason is that while in Israel in 1951, he voted in an election for the Knesset, Israel's legislative body. Afroyim's situation is by no means unique. From 1961 through 19ffi, the State Department ruled 5,173 U.S. citizens had lost their citizenship because they voted in foreign elections. And the same thing happened to another 425 in the first six months of this year. The State Department felt authority was clear, for a section of the 1940 Nationality Act says: "A person who is a national of the United States, whether by birth or naturalization, shall lose his nationality by voting in a political election in a foreign state." The New York Civil Liberties Union, acting on Afroyim's behalf, has won Supreme Court review of the constitutionality of this law, after two lower courts upheld the State Department. The Supreme Court in recent years has shown itself increas­ ingly reluctant to strip a man of his citizenship, some of the members contending that such a vital right is too precious to lose for anything less than compelling reasons. At the moment, the government has the power to take away citizenship in six general areas. In addition to renunciation of citizenship or voting in a foreign election, they are: Obtaining naturalization in a foreign country, serving in the armed forces of a foreign country, under certain circumstances working for a foreign government, and taking an oath of allegiance to a foreign government.

Long says private contributions to presidential campaigns should be outlawed now that such campaigns will be financed through income tax checkoffs. , The Louisiana Democrat, author of the measure permitting taxpayers to stipulate $1 of their income tax payment to help underwrite presidential campaigns of both parties, said otiier limitations on political contributions are needed. Long said in a statement inserted in the Congressional Record that enactment of his provision "does not replace the need for additional legislation regulating political contributions or requiring disclosure of the source of political campaign contributions." The Long provision, calculated to raise about ,J60 million to be divided equally between Republicans and Democi'ats for the 1968 election, does not apply to congressional, gubernatorial or local campaigns. WASHINGTON (AP) - The Treasury Department says the deficit in the U.S. balance of payments dix)pped during the third quarter o( 1966 but may increase a bit before the year ends. Secretary of the Treasury Henry H. Fowler said Monday balance-of-paymenls conditions have a way of swinging back and forth. He said in view of the good showing in the last two quarters, "I wouldn't be surprised if tliere were some increase in the deficit in the period ahead." Fowler reported Monday a third-quarter seasonally adjusted deficit of J217 million. This brought the tolnl deficit for the first nine montlis of 1966 to $878 million — whirti would mean an annual rate of $1.17 billion, compared with last year's $1.34 billion deficit.
