Man,s Gotta Hold His Coffee You can't blame a fellow for ing ... or can you? As a matter of fact, you can. As a matter of fact for years you have, or you will in the very near future. For example, Mayor Tom Little was hardly out of the starting gate in last fall's race for the office he eventually won when he called attention to the odd-hour meetings of Blytheville's City Council. Some statements were made about "secret" meetings of the then-current administration. Of course, Mr. Little's point, and it was a good one, was that there'd be no secret meetings when he was elected and there won't be. However, there may have been some misunderstanding about the early-morning meetings of City Council in other years. They were not secret as far as we know ... merely outland- iishly inconvenient for everyone except the city fathers. For example, the Courier News never was denied permission to be represented at any of these unofficial meetings. Several times a reporter was dispatched to these sessions. He returned after an hour or two of listening to the Council members make luch important political pronouncements as, "Pass them biscuits," and "The coffee's not to hot." In short, there just wasn't much business on the days when our man was at the city breakfast club. We had the suspicion that the city fathers, all pretty good sitters, simply out-sat our man, who was the nervous type. Mr. Little's extra-official Council meetings are going to be open—just like the meetings of his predecessor. They are to be held on Tuesday—just like the meetings of his predecessor. They will be unofficial—just like the meetings of his predecessor, and they will be at 7 a.m.—just like those of his predecessor. There is nothing diabolical about a 7 a.m. meeting ... in fact it makes good sense. But precious few citizens will avail themselves of the opportun • ity to see their Council in session at this hour. With a news staff now larger by one, and a patient Louisianian on the city beat, perhaps our chap will be able to hang in there with them over a few cups of coffee each Tuesday.

Schell is the Nazi officer who makes the capture. Oddly, Schell is the only one in the cast who does not play a musician, yet he is the only one who really is a musician.

We are (lad to let the Cincinnati Enquirer featuring articles on the seven unsolved murders that h»v* occurred in that city within the last year and believe that that newspaper is rendering E fine public service in the way it is handling the news. Following the Supreme Court decision which threw out the famous Dr. Sheppard case in Cleveland because of what the court called too much publicity, many newspapers hive feared to give too much detail of crimes committed in their areas and this undoubtedly has resulted in the escape of many criminals. Sometimes the mere mention of a name or the publication of a picture will recall to a reader's mind an incident that can result in the arrest and conviction of a guilty person. We have no intention of "trying in the newspapers" any cases now being investigated but we do feel that the handling of the Cincinnati murder cases has provided an example of how a newspaper can help in the solution of crime. Great care must be exercised by all newspapers so that innocent persons will not bt involved but at the same time the factual phases of crimes that may be committed must be considered as legitimate news. Some newspapers, following the ruling of the Supreme Court, have interpreted tlu's ruling as meaning that they can't carry even the bare (acts. It Is all right to throw every legal safeguard around a criminal but there is no reason to shield him and help him escape just punishment by failure to disclose what developments are going on in his case. The Amerclan Bar Association, apparent'.;' made up of more "defense" lawyers than prosecutors, has set up rules covering publication of crime news that are wholly unacceptable by most newspapers, All emphasis in these rules ii placed on helping criminals escape punishment and not on the protection of the public from criminals. Most newspapers know what constitutes "news" in reporting crime and they can be relied upon to present the news fairly. If the Cincinnati murders ever are solved It could be due largely to the way in which the Cincinnati Enquirer has covered the cases opening up new avenues of investigation and making it possible for hitherto unknown witnesses to enter the cases.—Lexington (Ky.) Herald. *IT'S rod THEY'RE AFTER, BABY." •aid. But there's enough left so you can see that Inga is one of the wonders of the age. Dick Orr is far removed from the world of show business — he's a junior high school teacher. They have a 3%-year-old son who, Inga says, is growing j betting that Roy Thinnes would be the next actor to make the long jump from television to movie stardom. His series, The Long Hot Summer, wasn't much but he obviously had it. Now we find him preparing to start a new series for ABC, so fast he's sure to be a basket- The Invaders. And still no mov- ball player. Mangled Metaphors A correspondent for the Milwaukee Journal has been listening, in the heat of Milwaukee Common Council debates, for mixed figures, curious metaphors, and other choice samples of colorful English. The list, he says, is growing dally. Take these specimens for example: "We must take the bull by the horns and see who picks up the tab." - "We must clear the air and get both sides of the coin." BIOSSAT AND CROMLEY IN WASHINGTON Ties Closer US-Japanese Prove Profitable to Both By RAY CROMLEY Washington Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn- TOKYO (NBA) "One major reason Japanese stock markets are in the doldrums is that traders don't know if the Vietnam war will end soon. They believe the end of the war will mean a drop in Japan's exports to the United States and jolt the Japanese economy." This was the thought expressed to me in a long personal talk with a Japanese stock technology. More Japanese manufacturers are becoming sub - contractors for American firms, producing parts to be used in a variety of U.S. machinery and equipment. "It's like coming up behind a guy j market officials. It was echoed and hitting'him with a bag of grapes and say- ! by other Japanese businessmen, ing, 'How do you like them apples?' " - "We've got to look at this problem through glass doors." - "City government has many faucets." - "We want to do what's right, but we're not always capable of it." We believe it. - Columbia (S.C.)

Jason, bachelor, is a professional duplicate bridge player who gets involved In murder mysteries while playing in bridge tournaments. The latest Winkman paperback is called "The Ace of Spies." We aren't qualified as literary experts but the book is exciting and it includes a lot of good pointers on bridge. At the start of the book Wink- man is playing in a sectional toqmament in Brooklyn.

Winkman identifies this two club call ai a "Michada cut bid." This bid shows a weak major suit hand. Wink checks for aces by use of Blackwood and contracts for six no-trump. His reasoning is mat his partner almost surely has a long club suit and that West will open a spade or heart into Wink's powerful major suit holding. Unfortunately for Wink's cal culations, West leads toe three of diamonds. South's queen is covered by East's king and the slam contract is set.

Wink looks rather silly but shift the king of diamonds from East to West and South makes ttie slam while North must set with a diamond opening. mm WORLD The Japan of today is not the Japan of 20 years ago. The Japan of 1966-67 is tightly tied to the U.S. political - economic system and the U.S. economy. A boom in Hie United States reflects itself in a Japanese business boom. A slowdown in the United States results in a setback in Japan. What this means to Americans is a growing export market for U.S. goods. It means Increasing competition with Japan's high-grade manufacturers that will force quality up and prices down in a fistful of U.S. consumer products. It means a Japan, whatever the ups and | and office equipment. Japanese downs of politics in Tokyo, that will have basically the same terests in Asia and worldwide as those of the United States. The American occupation of Japan after World War II built into Japan a craving for U.S. products and U.S. industrial systems. Numerous Japanese firms have invested jointly in subsidiaries with U.S. companies. The number of these joint investments will increase. Japanese industries would like to expand tiiis joint co - operation through the Far East and in other continents. Japan has a large domestic market, with a population of more than 100 million. Consumer incomes are moving up at a steady pace. The standard of living And the purchasing power per family are high. Japan haa the technical ability to produce goods the American consumer will buy. Japanese industry now has the know-how to turn out high- quality goods — in television, radios, advanced electronics, automobiles and trucks, textiles, cameras and other optical lines, scientific and medical instruments, china, typewriters ie. What happened? "I had many movie offers," Maximilian Schell, here tojThinnes says. "But I felt - and make "The Battle Horns" with I still feel — my first movie Charlton Heston and Kathryn Hays, is enjoying this stay in Hollywood. The reason is a change he has noticed in American girls. Max, who calls himself the "world's most dedicated bachelor," says that heretofore he has to be something special. And the scripts I was offered weren't special. So when tfiis series came along, I grabbed it because I think it's a good one for me." The Invaders is about halfway between science fiction and always found American girls The Fugitive. It's a Q u i n n disappointing.

All in all, these closer ties are going to be profitable for both countries. the Doctor Saw Bnterp '! sf , J By Wayne G. I Written fur Newspaper Association A mother writes ttiat her older son, about 2W years old, hits his year-old brother. Naturally she wants to break him of this habit. A certain amount of sibling rivalry is natural and cannot be entirely prevented, but constant vigilance is necessary to keep it from getting out of hand. By me time a child is 2 years old he should have been taught strict obedience to parental commands. Any mother who fails to do this is paving the way for trouble botii for herself and for her child. I would say to this mother, your older son must be told, in no uncertain terms, that hitting his brother will not be tolerated but, since the reason for his action is that he believes the younger brother has taken his place in your affection- you must make doubly certain to assure him of your continued and undiminished love. Let him know, too, that you understand his feeling but that he must learn not to use his emotions as a reason to hurt others. It is also helpful to appeal to fib desire to be grown-up. Remind him, with pride in your voice, that he is bigger, strong- "AW Y~'n BAD Blytheville (Ark.) Courier Nawi Monday, January 9, 1967 Braodstadt, M.D. er, wiser and more skillful than his brother and that he must be his little brother's protector just as you are his protector. If you punish him for his display of jealousy you only confirm his suspicion that you no longer love him. If you shame him, his pent-up emotions may rankle for days or even months. If the situation has already gotten out of hand and you can no longer control your older son's murderous feelings, you should seek the aid of a child psychologist without delay. Q — Our doctor frequently prescribes sulfa drugs and antibiotics for my children when they have colds or Sore throats. Won't the germs build up an immunity to these drugs? A — The viruses that cause colds and many other respira- tory illnesses are not susceptible to these drugs. The germs that are susceptible do, indeed, become resistant to them and therefore harder to treat. This has already created a problem and is a valid reason for reserving these valuable drugs for the more serious diseases and only those ttiat can be shown to ha caused by nonresistant germs.
