Ten Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Resolutions? Just Trying to Be Perfect! NEW YORK- (UP)— Why do we make New Year's resolutions? "Because of our sense of guilt .. .our eagerness to expiate and Improve ourselves," says Dr. James F. Bender, a leading psychologist. Then why do we break them? "Well," said Bender, "it's because we are imperfect manifestations of God's creation. We'll never be perfect but we keep on trying." Bender, 53, an autor, lecturer and consultant to business and industry, said the best way to make resolutions is not once a year, but once a day. Take Them Like Medicine "Take them like a dose of medicine, even,' morning on arising, or at bedtime," he said. He believes_ most persons are completely sincere as they sit down at this time of the year to list their 10—"All of us are basically interested in bettering ourselves". But having followed the usual pattern for many years, and finding I still am one of those "imperfect manifestations", I've launched a new system this year. My resolutions list hardly is for self-improvement, but is guaranteed easy to keep. I resolve: —To go ahead and run up my charge accounts; let the stores worry, for a chage. —To quit offering seats to old ladies on buses and subways; if they're able to travel, they're able to stand. Quit Being Cheerful —To quit being cheerful in the morning to bus drivers and elevator operators a smile gets only grunt and scowl anyway. —To stop trying to save money; Uncle Sam takes a big chunk and what's left can't go with you. —To call the police every time my apartment house neighbors throw a party beyond the 11 p.m. curfew. May not be good-enighbor- ly, but it'll make a quieter 1958. —To stop counting calories, once the waistline is out of hand, I will break this resolution,- and by that time, someone will come to my rescue with a new wrvnb) let.

HOLLYWOOD fUiP)—What to look for on the TV-movie front in 1958: More more movie theaters will close as TV runs away with an increasingly large segment of the national audience. Disappearance of "B" pictures. Movies will stick with super-col- ossals such as "Sayonara" and "Peyton Place" and Grade "Z" exploitation horror pictures. An increase in sales of film backlogs from major studios to TV, thus hurting further the longsuffering boxoffice. Race for "Don Quixote" Several versions of "Don Quixote" as Mike Todd, Orson Welles and two European producers race to complete the epic. A possible merger of MGM and 20th Century-Fox Studios. Closing of Universal - Interna- tiona! Studios—last of the big lots to convert to TV films. The sale of Republic Studios to NBC-TV. Economy drives in both TV and pictures with severe personnel cuts at the stuidios. Boom in Tapes A boom in electronic tape recording for TV shows, increasing the clarity and reproduction of network shows — a big improvement over today's "hot kinescopes'' vvhich are seen via film, shows, but its parent organization, RCA-Victor, sees no cut in cost of color TV sets. The net- jwork also offers "The Shirley Temple Story Book" for the coming year in addition to two new horse operas and an adventure series titled "Northwest. Passage." OBS will introduce a lady cop in "The Sergeant and the Lady" series and a flock of new situation comedies which will make a comeback in 1958. ABC Completes Addition ABC will truly become a third "major" network with the completion of a SO-million dollar addition to its Hollywood studios. The Web aiso will add Orson WelJes to its team of performers, along RAPS 'PALACE GUARD" WASHINGTON (UP) — Chairman Emanuel Ceiler (D-N.Y.) of the House Judiciary Committee has called on President Eisenhower to resign temporarily if lie has to continue being a "president in name onlj'."

Read the Classified Ads with Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca. Look for several musical-variety shows to drop from sight as a result of low ratings. Success of Desi Arnaz and Dick Powell in Video production has stirred Burt Lancaster and his independent company to move into TV. Greta Garbo will make a movie for the first lime in two decades. Both studio and network bigwigs predict further experimenta- ftion in pay TV as a way out of jthe financial woods for both me- jdiums. 3 KIllED, 6 INJURED—A doll rests In seat of the Byrne car to BrecksvUle, O., where Patricia Aim Byrne, 9, and her mother, Mrs. Richard A.
