California Dreaming Right from th« b«tfnnins;, the can- and subsequent election of Tom Little as mayor of Blytheville has .;;;,;had its disquieting aspects ... first to "''Ms political opponents (who didn't ---•think he had a chance) and now to ". some of his advocates (more than one of whom didn't think he had a chance). Mr. Little, it seems, is bent on having a go at fulfilling: some campaign pledges. Those issues which have drawn his attention during the early days of his infant administration are irie junior college and city manager form of government. With ad- .._lmirable restraint, Mr. Little has not -/—said he will bring a new form of gov- \ eminent to Blytheville along with a : new junior college on the morrow. " Rather, he expressed the thought '• that both ideas have merit and should ':• be investigated—indeed they do and indeed they should. Although many in Blytheville long • : Have talked about the necessity of a junior college (and there is a very real : n|ed for one), their position is somewhat analogous to the man who voted - for Mr. Little: the issue probably doesn't have a chance. As a matter of fact, the issue now has new life ... in fact it hu life it never had before. Now, all those good people who hav« offered verbal iupport to a junior college her* «•• going to b« handed the opportunity of supporting it with their tax dollars. Thin will com* in addition to the new tax dollar* th« overloaded Blytheville public school system simply must have in the next year. In short, the coupling of » community junior college and a revitalized public school program (which is well on the wing) will represent a painful probe into the taxpayer's pocket. If the taxpayer approves these new taxes, he will be doing several things, all of them good. He'll be offering two years of college to students who muat live at home for reasons of economy. He'll be raising the overall level of education of the populace. He'll be showing any interested person or persons that he cares about public education. This is quite a bit. Interestingly, it is an approach which has made California one of the marvels of the western world in (a) per capita income, and (b) higher education. Taxes, too, are high in Caliornia. Of OtU IRS Does Us A Favor' !; Those kindly fellows at the Internal Rev• enue Service, who see to it more or less that '' we all pay our Federal taxes exactly as we i should, have just served notice they are get* ?• ting ready to do their duty on our 1966 Income. The tax return forms, they say, will-be - mailed out just after-New Year's. (Sort of a r£38minder, we suppose, that we better hold Sgiown on * e Christmas spending so we can S"~pay our taxes.) Si They also say a few changes have been •.: made in the tax forms, but these changes iS will make our toils simpler, not more compli- "~ cated. (They said that last year, but It didn't ~| help.) And w« won't have to file the return by midnight April 15, as normally. In 1967, April IS comes on a Saturday, a day IRS usually locks up the shop and stays home. So the last day to file a tax return or get it post, marked will be April 17. . The tone of the IRS announcement seemed to indicate the tax fellows thought they were doing all of us a favor by giving us two extra days. Showing they don't know most of us very well. This just means a majority of us will spend two more days of agony, moaning, groaning and cursing over tt)ose forms. Thanks, fellows, but don't be doing us all those "favors." — Knoxville (Tenn.) News-Sentinel. Show Beat by Dick Kleiner Next movie cycle — ganster pictures. That's the theory of producer - director Roger Gorman who figures his own film, "The St. Valentine's Day Massacre," is the forerunner. Before he approached 20th Century-Fox with his idea for this film, he armed himself with an arsenal of statistics. "I dug back," he says, "and discovered that we've had a cycle of gangster movies every five years. We're due for a new one now." The studio bought the idea, and Corman is in the midst of one of the bloodiest stories ever shot. Besides the title massacre — the gunning down of seven gangsters in Chicago in 1929 — there are some 15 other murders in this story of mob warfare. Segal are the two major antagonists in Siis tale. Corman reolizes already, even before the film is finished, that he will have to issue it with a "Suggested for Adults Only" tag. As for the violence, Corman is used to that. At 39, he's one of Hollywood's marvels and he rode to fame and fortune on a long list of inexpensive bloodlettings — from "Monster from of the bloodiest man-vs.-woman free-for-alls ever filmed. The participants in this are George Segal and Jean Hale and Jean will never get herself involved in anything like it again. It was too much — a bloody nose, a ripped-off fingernail, bruises all over her body. Corman wanted realism and he got it. The scene was shot with hand-held cameras as Jean and George slugged and bit and wrestled and clawed. Jean dished out as much as she took. "I may look fragile," she says, "but I'm a pretty strong woman." Jean is a good bet for stardom. She stole "The Oscar" and reports are that she is great in "In Like Flint." Now "Massacre" should get her talked about even more. She's a girl from Darien, Jason Robards and George Conn., and both her feet are firmly on the ground. Her father is a successful businessman, her brother a successful surgeon in Pittsburgh, her sister a successful interior decorator in San Francisco. Her family's success helps her maintain her equilibrium. "If I ever started acting important," she says, "they would bring me down to earth very fast.

West should have beaten the hand by playing his eight of clubs instead of the six spot. This would have forced dummy's 10. Later when South led the nine of clubs West would have played the six. South could let the nine ride but in that case he would be stuck in his own hand, with no way to pull West's list trump and run the diamonds. So West had made a ferrous mistake but he wasn't the only expert who went wrong. South could have made the contract had he ruffed the third spade with his nine of clubs. Then he would have been able to finesse against West's clubs and win in dummy each time irrespective of the order in which Wesl played his jack, eight, six and four. fends violence on film eloquent- (of attitude." like tJiey-are so very, important — I haven't time for that kind BIOSSAT AND CROMLIY IN WASHINGTON Tax Boost Decision Puts Johnson on a Bad Spot By BRUCE BIOSSAT I rise. Washington Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. WASHINGTON (NBA) Should President Johnson propose a 5 per cent personal and corporate -income tax increase, fiscal experts say this would take just about a $5 billion bite out of the country's pocketbooks. Assuming maintenance of the economy at roughly today's levels, some $3.3 billion in tax revenues would be taken from individuals and $1.7 billion from corporations. With nearly $10 billion in extra funds needed in the present fiscal year for Vietnam war outlays, and probably at least as much extra war money re- It is interesting, nevertheless, to recall that a .month after the Korean war broke out President Truman asked for $5 billion in new taxes (the same, sum here mentioned), tough the economy was in. an uncertain state from a recession which began the previous year. Furthermore, the $5 billion tax proposal in 1950 required a boost of from 10 to 20 per cent in individual income levies — a good deal more proportionately thai] would be involved in a 1967 increase of the same dollar magnitude.

Yet there is still no conclusive sign the President intendsto push for any tax increase at all. By one account, he might propose it, take credit for a noble try, and then forget it.

I had it pretty bad with my first pregnancy. A — There is no way to prevent morning tickneu but you can minimize it by taking frequent small feedings and avoiding rich, greasy foods. There are icvtral seasickness remedies that will help tide you over the wMks when this is • problem. If, instead of morning sickness, the vomiting presists all day you may have to spend a few days in the hospital until this complication is controlled. Seme women have morningsick- ness with every baby and others only with their first. Unforhi- nattly, there is no test to determine to which group you be- lonj.

If a woman has a second mentrusl period after she become pregnant her doctor should suspect some disease of the uterus as a cause of the bleeding .rather than menstruation. Q — When a woman has her tubes tied will this cause any physical or mental changes in her?- • A — It will cause no physical changes and there is no reason why it should cause any mental or emotional changes except a greater freedom from worry but this is hard to predict because such changes depend on many factors that are hard to evaluate. . • Q — I am' afraid to take any medicine while I am prebnant I have been taking Fiorina!, and Equanil. If I were pregnant would they ; harm the baby? A — No woman who is pregnant should take any medicine except under careful rr.«dical supervision. Fiorinal is a sedative usually given for tenien headaches. It contain a bar- forming. It will not harm the baby. Meprobamate (Equanil) possibly retard the development of your baby in theuter- tranquilizes and might possibly retard the development of your baby in the uteurs. Q — Is it possible for a woman's cycle to be such that her time to become pregnant is during her mentrual period? A — The idea that oyulation might occur with menstruation was exploded about 40 years ago. It occurs in all women about midway between menstrual periods. Q - Is it true that if young women indulge in spcrts involving jumping it will cause them to have difficulties in childbearing later? A - No. Any kind of sport that increases a girl's physical fitness would be an her. her. Pleae send your questions and comments to Wayne G. Brandstadt, M.D., in care of this paper.
