(Art.) gouriwr Wew» *• Tuesday, February 14,1967 u- Page Thm /nc//o Votes Democracy at Stake? The world's largest democracy — 240 million on the voting rolls —goes to the polls Feb. 15 in possibly the most fateful election in two decades as an independent nation. Campaign issues are economic- food shortages, high prices and underemployment. But the real significance of the election may be much more basic. Can democracy survive in India where independence has failed to solve age-old problems but only seen them multiply? A billbdord urges Indians to vote for the ruling but weakening Congress party, led by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and symbolized by a pair of sacred bulls. Party symbols aid voters unable to read—some 70 per cent of all Indians. Below, left to right, are the symbols for the main opposition parties: Swatantra (conservative), Jan Sangh (Hindu religious) and Communist India's problems are basic and perennial—too many mouths, too little food and ancient traditions that resist modernization. Meanwhile, famine stalks much of India. Only gifts of grain from abroad — the United States primarily, but also the Soviet Union, Canada and Australia'—stave off national starvation. At right, Communiits parade in Calcutta. They stand to win control again of the state of Kerala. By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - A un- on for movie producers? At 'irst blush that sounds as likely as organizing U. S. senators or he executives of General MOOTS. Yet the Screen Producers Guild has launched an organizing drive and plans to seek contracts with the movie and :elevision companies. The Guild was founded in 1950 as a professional organization aimed at furthering the prestige of film producers. It did so via a well-edited journal, which dealt with industry topics, the annual Mileston banquet, a code of '•?'£*£ , „., '•ki Vr-'V V&y£-£t i& •> ~ 5 < ~. i, iSsJ&VS .'

I would like very much to have my son's footprints taken again to compare them with the ones taken at the hospital where he was born. I am not saying for sure that he is not my own child, but I keep thinking that somewhere along the line they could have mixed up my baby with someone else's. My son is a year old now, and it still bothers me. I have contacted the hospital where he was born, asking if they would take another set of footprints for comparison now, and they laughed at me and said this was never done. Someone suggested I hire a lawyer. What for? I don't want to sue anyone. I just want to be sure they gave me the right baby. TROUBLED MIND DEAR TROUBLED: Your request does not strike me as being so outlandish. Discuss this with your family doctor. He will not laugh at you. Even tho your fears are probably unfounded, the proof you seek is not difficult to obtain. Your peace of mind is what is important now. P.S.: Lawyers are "hired' for reasons other than "su- j n g» _ they advise one of his legal rights. DEAR ABBY: First I want to tell you that I have not missed reading a single one of your columns since it started to run in our newspaper. When I go on vacations, I leave instructions with my housekeeper to cut out all the DEAR ABBY'S and save them for me. I only tell you tin's so you will know how much I respect your advice. Now for my question: I would like to have your thinking on some extremely important matters, both social and business, but this must be strictly confidential. I don't want any of your secretaries reading my letters. If I send you the money, will you please rent a post office box to receive my letters. I would like to be assured of absolute privacy. STRICTLY BETWEEN US DEAR STRICTLY: Save your money. Send your letters via the regular channels, and mark them "CONFIDENTIAL," and you shall have the privacy you seek. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married for 22 happy years. Our children are in college, which accounts for my wife's being permanently employed. Last month her boss sent her to Atlantic City for a convention. This is the first time she's ever been out of town without me. She is vey attractive and looks younger than her age. When she returned she told me that the convention included many- social affairs, and one evening she went to cocktails and supper with a man she had casually met there. I am sure nothing wrong took place, but I am deeply hurt by what I consider to be indiscreet conduct for a married woman. I am sure there were plenty of unattached women she could have gone with. I would like your opinion. OLD FASHIONED DEAR OLD FASHIONED: Before forming negative opinions, talk it over with your wife and determine if she feels her conduct was "indiscreet." Then reevaluate your judgment. CONFIDENTIAL TO "MIXED UP" IN BINGHAMPTON: He may be "brilliant," but ask an outsider. No one can offer ob. jective advice about a problem when he is part of the problem. Troubled? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal. 90069.

The Milestone dinner won't be held this spring, because Guild members are devoting their energies to recruiting new members and girding for negotiations with the companies. The mind boggles at the prospect of a union for movie producers. Will their contract demand two swimming pools for every member? Will they insist on job security for their relatives? If they go on strike, will they send their secretaries to picket? Lou Greenspan, the astute executive director of the Producers Guild, is prepared for such japery. "We received the same reaction when we approached the producers association (the organization of film companies) and asked for our members to included in the industry's pension plan," said Greenspan. 'The answer was: 'Why do producers — those millionaires — need a pension?' The request was refused. "We feel the producers are Today In History mitted to the union. In 1903, Congress created a General Staff Corps and provided for the appointment of a chief of staff of the U.S. Army. Also in 1903, the Department of Commerce and Labor was created. In 1912, Arizona was admitted to the union. Ten years ago — Robert Tripp Ross, assistant cseretary of defense for legislation and public affairs, resigned his post, saying his future effectiveness had been impaired. This because of newspaper reports of a Senate investigation of an Army contract awarded to his wife's firm. Ross denied any conflict of interest or violation of the law or of the ethical code.

"The producer and the director are the only ones in the film industry not afforded the use of the NLRB; they are considered part ol management," explained Greenspan.
