THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1966 Women Hold 6 Top Positions In Alabama MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The petticoat's place in Alabama politics seems assured frith women holding six of the itate's top elective offices. During the Nov. 8 elections, most of the national attention ^as focused on Luralee Wallace's smashing victory over two male opponents. But, when the 40-year-old tilonde succeeds her husband. Gov. George C. Wallace, to become Alabama's first, and the (lation's third, woman governor, the will be joining five other members of her sex who have been chosen by Alabama's vot- irs. Moreover, a woman never has been defeated by a man in a contest for statewide office in (Uabama. This year, Sibyl Pool, who Itarted the feminist movement It the state Capitol, drubbed a male foe for re-election to the Public Service Commission. The only other woman challenged by a man. Secretary of State Agnes Baggett, handily moved over to the treasurer's office. Two other women were elected without male opposition. Melba Till Allen defeated Republican Alice Hudson for state auditor while Mabel Amos was unopposed for secretary of state. In addition to the women elected this year, tlie presiding judge of the Alabama Court of Appeals is a woman, Annie Lola Price. Her si.x-yoar term did not e.xpii'e this year. Miss Pool opened state office doors to women when she was elected secretary of state in 1946 after serving in the Legislature. She has held state office ever since. The Public Service Commission member also devised a system of rotating office among the ladies which has proved highly successful. Mrs. Baggett, for example, has been state auditor, state treasurer, secretary of state and now will be treasurer again.

Phone 242-2173 12th and Waltonville Road Mt. Vernon, Illinois Television Review . . . By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Any television viewer with an interest in news programs must by now be familiar with what CBS', Marvin Kalb Tuesday night called Red China's "guided tour No. 1." This is the route of tourists and visiting journalists in a triangle between Peking, Shanghai and Wuhan. We have taken the trip before, courtesy of film by foreign camera teams. CBS News sent a West German crew on the "No. 1 tour" recently. The result was the usual portrait of busy, smiling people marching and singing In spotless sti-eets, happily picking perfect vegetables in rich green fields, eating well and living in adequate, if slightly beat up quartei-s, and lots of cute, fat cliildren. To make the program some- tliing more than another travelogue, ' three writers who were recent visitors to China were asked to look at the film footage, comment and explain. The result was a gentle and often sympathetic interpretation of a nation fighting its way through problems of overpopulation, food and machine shortages and social revolution. China-born physician - writer Han Suyin emphasized frequently tlie presence of so many children, and compared it with the old days. Now with maternity hospitals in the communes. Dr. Han noted that "it isn't that there are more babies, but it's just that fewer babies die." The most interesting observations were the small ones; the excellent food served in train dining cars; the "complete and total absence of sin" in modem Shanghai which once had 80,000 prostitutes, 10,000 bars and night clubs and terrible poverty; the complete and mysterious disappearance of flies in the whole country; the existence of domestic servants in a classless society which is short of house- paint. Occasionally, but not strongly enough, one commentator or another indicated his awareness that the cameramen did not have freedom to shoot whatever they wanted. Writer Robert Guillain advanced the theory tliat perhaps one reason foreign journalists were not permitted to visit provinces off the guided tour route was not to conceal failures, but to conceal "places where their most advanced progress and remarkable achievements are located." There was some calm discussion of Chinese fears of outside influences and aggression, of the adoration of Mao Tse-tung. But the whole program was attuned to Kalb's expressed hope for a time when "both nations, tlie U.S. and China, will have adopted a more flexible and intelligent attitude towards each otiier." From that standpoint, "Inside Red China" was an unusual, even controversial television documentary.

Elect Charles Percy said Tuesday he would support open housing legislation in Congress and that he foresees no circumstances tliat would make him the 1968 Republican candidate for president. Percy, 47, ousted three-term Democratic Incumbent Paul Douglas from the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 8 election. In his first session with Washington newsmen, Percy said he could not even name the current leader for the 1968 nomination. "I can foresee no circumstances under which I would be expected to do other than be a good United States senator for the next six years." He said Republicans from all factions of the party were elected in the recent election and added, "I think there's every indication that we have had a lesson in defeat and we have risen from defeat." Percy said he will support the open housing civil rights bill passed by the House in the last Congress. The bill was defeated in tile Senate, but Percy said he hopes it will be introduced next year. Percy met with Douglas and said dissatisfaction among Negroes and racial disturbances during the summer were responsible for producing votes that helped »lefeat Douglas. Pei'cy said the election indicated the nation felt a strong two-party system could best serve the country. Percy spoke on Viet Nam, saying, "I think the initiat've (for peace) hopefully would continue to come from Asia. He said he hoped both sides in the war could work out a Christmas truce and he said U.S. air attacks in North Viet Nam have been overrated and have not stopped Communist infiltration. But lie said the bombing of North Viet Nam now represents a bargaining point, something which could be yielded in return for some Communist concession. Percy also said it would not be known until next year whether an income tax increase will be necessary to pay the cost of the Viet Nam war. J .4PANESE APPEAL TOKYO (AP) — Japan's United Church of Oirist, a merged body i n c 1 uding Congregationalists, Methodist, Presbyterians and Reformed CJiristians has issued an appeal to President Johnson for a halt to the bombing of North Viet Nam. These bombings near Hanoi and Haiphong, the Japanese church said, have "trampled under" the desires for peace of not only the intelligent and well- wishing people in Japan but of all Asia." CIRCUIT COURT Walter Hunter, Marion, has been fined $10 in Circuit Court here for speeding. Anofh«r Gin? Work Is A Pastime For Briton, 92 By EDDT OILMORB LONDON (AP) — Frederick Holden celebrated his 92nd birthday by announcing he plans to continue working an eight-hour day five days a week, "I'd shrivel up if I ever retired," he said In an Interview, Not only does he put in a full day as a supervisor in the Savoy Hotel's bookkeeping department, he uses the subway daily and always offers his seat to women when the cars get crowded. Holden was bom in London Nov, 21, 1874, 15 years before the hotel opened its doors. He went to the Savoy 59 years ago and was eligible for a pension 27 years ago. Asked whether he ever smoked or drank, Holden replied: "Smoke? Why, I started when I was 13." And drink? "WeU, I started on gin and I was, let's see, about 18." Holden rises at 7 a.m. and goes to bed at 11 or 11:30. He gardens for a hobby. Asked the secret of his continued activity, he replied: "The idea is — you want to treat work as a pastime. May I have another gin, please," Granite City Water Tastes GRANITE CITY, 111, (AP)— The Illinois Department of Health has sent a representative, Paul Blakesly, to Granite City to Investigate the taste of the city's water supply. Granite Qty, which gets its public water from the Mississippi River, received a number of complaints from residents over the weekend protesting a foul smell and taste in tlie water, J, G. Cams, manager of the East St. Louis and Intcrurban Water Co., said that perhaps a barge carrying chemicals to an oil refinery in the area was the source of the pollution. Is Passion Play Anti-Semitic? OBERAMMERGAU, Germany (AP) — The mayor of this Alpine village said today the text of its world famous Passion Play will be examined at a Roman Catholic monastery for alleged anti-Semitic overtones. The American Jewish Congress has urged a boycott of the play and cited Oberammcrgau's refusal to discard what was termed an "intensely anti-Semitic text," Mayor Ernst Zwlnk, who called the criticism premahjre and uninformed, said Julius Cardinal Doepfner, archbishop of Munich and Freising, has approved a plan to have the century-old script studied at the nearby Ettal Monastery. Zwink did not specify whether all the monastery's recommendations would be adopted by the village in preparmg for the 1970 performance. The play, a seven-hour spectacle, is presented every 10 years to fulfill a pledge made When the village was spared from a 17th-century "black plageu "epidemic. The text now in use was written in 1S60 by a local priest, the Rev. J, A, Daisenberger, Many Catholic clergy and laymen feel the play is not in accord with the Vatican Ecumenical Council declaration absolving Jews of any collective guilt for the death of Christ, One chorus line in the play says that the "time of grace has passed away" for the Jewish people.
