Hugh Jackson, California educator and president of Klwnnls International, submitted five-point community program to the Kiwanis Club of Blytheville for its guidance In the year ahead. In a message read by Tom A. Little, Jr., president of the Blytheville club, at the weekly meet- Ing ol the club in Hotel Noble yesterday noon, Mr. Jackson appealed to all Kiwanians to "demand efficiency and economy in the conduct ol our government, whether at the national, slate, or local level." ; Mr. Jackson, who Is dean of .the graduate school o f business a t Stanford University, said leaders in large cities and small towns constantly devote their personal service to strengthening human and spiritual 'values. His message was read In connection with tire Blytheville club's observance of the 35th anniversary of Kiwanis International. His five- point program'was: "1.

Portageville News By Mrs. Raymond Toombs tt» The RoUrj CMub Nf»l PorUgevllle Rotary Club HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN Boyle Ponders the Value of Hypnotism In Meeting Some of Life's Problems NEW YORK—W—Have you hypnotized your wile or husband? Why not? This Is the best solution of everybody's marital problems yet dreamed up. A New York professor recently Indicated that problems of this nature can be solved by the rnunibo- -jllmbo of hypnotism. He didn't say it quite that way. But he did say that he coultl hypnotize a gent, snap him out of it tnd yet still have the guy come buck by post-hypnotic suggestion at 3 o'clock the following afternoon to pet a big black dog that wasn't there. I say thnt this opens the answer to all the problems of the Western world, which are largely ma!e versus female rather than American against Russian. (The RiLssians must •have BS much trouble getting along with their wives aa we do.) Personally, fellows, regardless of what you do. I am either going to learn to hypnotize my wife or hire man to do It for me. How can a guy afford not to? You take the average wife. What does she give you but a lot of common sense and ''love's old .sweet yelp?" She has no real appreciation of the mysteries of life that make 'existence worth enduring—for the mate. Her life is ruled by• a grass sense of 'man's injustice; which Is the mixed product of lady's loneliness, lady insufficiency, and ladj 'propriety. For all this she blames her husband. A wife not only insists on being bass, but she demands that she not. he alone. This Is Uxe fatal foolish- R that all dictators get caught with: They never realize that power is a solitary enterprise—that nobody is going to admire them merely for their muscle. It also Is needless to point out that wives are the soft Instruments of power in our civilization. Why remark again ii|>on the female fLst in the velvet glove? We all have felt it. Our only possible defense is— hypnotism. Personally, I have no dc.stre to fork out $15 to a hypnotist who will mesmerize my wife into calling at ny library In mid-afternoon to pat a non-existent Dachshund . Let's be realistic, even If it costs <'25 —if I can hire a mumbo-jumbo artist who will get her to pat me lovingly on the check on the morning after the night before under the mistaken impression that I am n misunderstood Saint Bernard... Well? Bow-Wow! The only danger t can see Ls that this terrible weapon of hypnotism may fall *lnto wifely hands Looking at it that way, boys, our secrets arc gone. Our favorite bartenders will sell us helplessly down the river at the snap of female fingers. Our little w'nltc lies v.'iT slant! ouk like five o'clock* shadow n r t ten p.m.—or like John Dillingcr nt an FBI chowder party. Believe me, friends, hypnotist)should never become the poor woman's radar. But it can be man'. best friend—if he doesn't dog it.
