An Obvious Need On Wednesday, Police Chief George Ford issued a plea to the city's dog owners to keep their pets in check a little better. The problem, he suggested, is showing signs of getting out of hand. Thursday morning, a father called the Courier News to say a pack of 25 dogs was roaming the Central School area. Although Chief Ford didn t say It (there's a limit to what a prudent chief of police will say, one would assume, when lie's working under a mayor-city council form of government), the fact is that the dog control laws in Blytheville are inadequate and the dog catchers and police can not successfully cope with the problem. Chief Ford has observed that a leash law is not necessarily desirable because it would not be possible to en- fore* it. This may be true, but actually, the law as it now reads puts far too little responsibility on the dog owner. In effect, a tagged dog may roam »t large and although Chief Fdrd noted that dogs running in packs will be picked up whether tagged or not, th« fact is that this does not particularly increase owner responsibility. It would be interesting td see what the Arkansas Municipal League might suggest in the way of a model dog ordinance. It seems the city hag an obvious need for a new one, Vi*wi Of Saving Our Water flw Oklahoma Water Resources Board has published an intriguing map of the Sooner state which shows an east-to-west pattern of ftream flow. Only the "dark" arrows indicate the areas where the direction of the rlv- *r movement actually has been reversed and the "light" arrows show proposed projects. The master plan consists of J17 reservoirs of which 48 are existing, under construction or planned and 69 are proposed. The plan calls for water collected In the northeast part of the state to be moved westward into the- Panhandle. Water collected in the southeast would be moved to the central and southwestern areas. 'All this is significant to Arkansas because the plan could deprive our slate of an important part of the water that is essential to eur development, particularly in the areas of .'.Industry, agriculture, municipal growth, transportation and recreation. Even here, whew we have taken for granted the abound- ence of water, we are beginning to realize that the supply is not unlimited. The Oklahoma plan, coupled with a similar and even more ambitious blueprint being developed for Texas, could substantially curtail our water supply. One of the bright spots of the regular legislative session—and they have been so rare that the "good" laws stand out clearly—is the passage of House Bill 569. The measure contains appropriations for "personal services and operating expenses of the Arkansas Soil and Water Conservation Commission" and provides for specialists needed to begin work on • comprehensive plan for the development of water resources in Arkansas. Members of the legislature must have stud- led the Oklahoma map on which the major rivers would reverse their flow. H they saw this map, they obviously decided the tune had come for Arkansas to deal itself a hand in the game of resource planning.—Arkansas Gazette. •••••••••••••••••••••••* •••••••••••••••••••* Sbow Beat Dick Kleiner CANT KEEP W UP FOREVER. UAT6R. HE'S &OT TO A Vanished Breed We still see help-wanted ads in our trade magazines seeking "country-trained" printers. There are still dreamers in this world. .A country-trained printer is a man who started work as an apprentice In a small print-shop, learned to do all phases of the job ori'a variety of machines. Along the way he learned to repair the machines as well as operate them. He learned to buy stock, estimate jobs, and became reasonably competent in.all the needed skills. •He started at a small wage, and his pay Increased as his skills increased. It was a good, practical way to learn. There are now no new "country-trained" printers. B is virtually illegal to hire a boy of school age. If you hire an unskilled trainee, you pay him as though he knew it all. You pay a skilled operator high wages to teach the unskilled one, and you pay the student almost as much as the teacher. If the student shows no aptitude, he can then draw unemployment pay on your account for many weeks after you let him go. This In some cases raises the rate you pay for your unemployment compensation insurance. So the way we train printers now Is to take tax money, build trade schools, hire teachers (out of working print shops), pay the kids to go to school, and then when they're graduated they go to California, or Florida, or Texas or somewhere else.

This Is because, somehow or other, three - level pre-empts are seldom doubled while four level pre-empts frequently are.

WASHINGTON (NBA) Sen. Robert F. Kennedy of ew York did not wait for an citation to turn up recently : an important evening recep- on held by the Pemocratic 'ational Committee, He had repair work to do. A ood many Democratic politi- ans around tha country, rough friendly to his long ange ambitions for higher of- ce, were disturbed at the evi- ent low state of his relations 'ith President Johnson. Generally, they see the feud" fuzzily. But at least a cw figures, including some uite fond of Kennedy, lay chief lame upon him. Kennedy, backed up by his rother Ted, senator from Mas- achusetts, worked the recep- ion crowd well — while aware, certainly, that these leaders have no intention of abandoning LBJ in 1968 and that they were it least moderately pleased at the President's beginning efforts o put more life in neglected >arty machinery. One venerable committeeman speaking of Johnson's new stirrings, said: "We've been had — and I like it!" Kennedy's appearance in this setting seemed a fresh underscoring, at a critical moment, of his repeated assertions that he supports the President for re-election next year. Yet it cannot be said this ends the whole matter. For the recent flareup in the long - strained relations between the President and Ken- nedy suggests to some observers that some of the senator's friends and sympathizers will not let his "cause" be pursued more cautiously even if he should wish it. It was a sympathizer who leaked the story that Kennedy was coming home from Paris with a Vietnam "peace feeler." That episode, plus Kennedy's outspoken criticisms of U.S.- Vietnam policy while abroad, led to the severe dressing-down LBJ gave the senator on Feb. 6. Once again, a Kennedy sympathizer let out the story. Curiously, the printing of those stories produced a verbal backlash of considerable force from liberal sources which assumed — quite wrongly — that the White House leaked the information. The liberals' outrage could not have been more misdirected. Their performance at this stage illustrates the seriousness of a fundamental Kennedy dilemma. From the outset of his Senate career in 1965, he has consciously sought to establish a separate identity for himself — to speak up when he felt the issue demanded it, even if that ranged him against the Johnson administration from time to time. He has been particularly eager to find and hold common ground with the country's young people. There is much more to it than just wanting their votes at some future date. The whole Kennedy mystique is founded on a linkage with youth, on a wish to encourage their aspirations and their taking part in the challenges of the age. In a quieter time, with nO Vietnam war, Bob K e n n e d y might follow his course of "occasional separatism" with little uss. But, in the superheated itmosphere generated by Vietnam, his distinctive declarations are seized upon with near frenzy by opponents of the v and haters of Lyndon Johnson. * * » The roster of ultraliberals who now hail Kennedy's name would — three years ago — nave seemed to them and to him a thoroughly ludicrous prospect. They reprint his speeches, press him to attack the President's policies further, urge his 196B presidential candidacy. Some Democrats at the big party gathering felt that this winter — especially on his trip abroad — Kennedy had overreached himself in his quest for identity. They felt that serious party damage might result If he does not pull in somewhat. Kennedy's round of handshak ing among the professionals probably will be taken as a sig nal he agrees. But one high placed Democrat thinks h< must do much more, t h a t he must campaign for J o h n s o n with immense vigor in 1988. To do less, he says, is to risk hav ing a possible LBJ defea blamed on him, or a Johnson victory credited wholly to th President and others, and no at all to him. If Kennedy does go all out on the campaign trail, then h faces the other horn of his d: lemma — the wrath of the anti war, antl - Johnson liberals wh have tried to capture the sen ator as their chief w e a p o against the President. Eve fickle, they might desert Rob ert Kennedy in drove?. HOLLYWOOD (NBA) Rtt H»fri««n finally finished hit "Doctor Dollttle" assignment - weeks after filming was completed. The reison: He insisted on 'doing his song* differently. Ordinarily, in a film musical, the v ^ lingers prerecord their songs •**"" first and then, during the shooting, they lip-synch to their own recording*. But Rex wouldn't work that way, He wanted to do his songs live, so he wouldn't be inhibited by having to conform to any prerecordings. And that meant that after the filming was done he had to go into the studio and record the songs - that's called "looping" — and fit them to his own lip movements. NBC's Experimental Theater will devote an hour to a program called "Theater of the Deaf," and, appropriately, Nanette Fabray will be the narr- tor. Appropriately, because she Is hard of hearing herself. She feels strongly that the entertainment world has ignored those with hearing problems — "There are 20,000,000 of us in the U.S.," she says, "and we have no entertainment except for foreign movies with' subtitles or some bits of pantomime." "Someday," she says, "some- lone will tap that market and grow rich — as well as doing mething wonderful for mil- em of people." Nanette is full of statistics >out the deaf; she says, for xample, that recent research lowed mat 20 per cent of chil- ren thought to be mentally re- arded were simply deaf. "I had that sort of problem 'hen I was a child," she says. I was very poor in school, nd everybody — including my- elf — concluded that I just 'asn't very bright. But it was ust that I was hard of hearing. I was unlucky, too - mine was marginal case, not easily detected." Jack Kruschen knows the ins and outs of television series.

You may be young in heart but if you suffer, as many do, from winter itch the chances are you are well over 50. This type of itch is caused by dryness of the skin and is aggravated by living in a steam-heated dwelling without properly humidifying the indoor air enough, that is, to allow some condensation of moisture on the windows. Other factors include bathing too frequently and using strong soaps or a stiff brush on your skin. Age is a factor because It is associated with drying of the skin and sluggish circulation, The akin of the legs is most Blytheville (Ark.)

Brandstadt, M.D. severely affected and the itching is often at its worst when you retire at night. It may even be so severe as to interfere with your sleep. Scratching may give some relief but frequently it is like popcorn — a little makes you want more. When the scratching becomes too vigorous it may produce inflammation. The best treatment is to prevent undue drying of ttie indoor air, take cold showers using very little soap (plain and unscented) and be sure to rinse it all off. Some persons get relief by adding eight ounces of soluble starch to a lukewarm bath. After your bath you should apply a thin film of an emulsion or ointment that contains lanolin to your skin. It also helps to drink more fluids and eat more vegetable oil in cold wMther, Q — I recently bumped my « bow and now there seems to fluid on it. Should I have n doctor drain it or leav* alone?

This is the first time in Bonanza's history that a character has returned. "I would like to do a series about Rossi," Jack says. "I think it's time we had a series which showed American ideals. Too many people take America and what we stand for for granted. "The younger generation is too used to the easy life. They don't approach what we have here. I can remember, when I was a boy, people had to work hard and they appreciated things more. "I have a teen - age boy at home, my stepson but I think of im as my own, and when he wants something he has to work or it. He wants a car next fear; he's going to have !o am the money. But my own hildren, they live with my ex- wife, they're spoiled and how! daughter, since she was six r seven, my ex has taken her o the beauty parlor. Imagine." Jack thinks that a series — iased on the Rossi character, an immigrant Italian making out in the Old West — can lelp. It can, h« thinks, tell th« sids what Americanism really means, without hitting them over the head with a bottled message. 75 Years Ago —In Blytheville Seventy five guests called at he home of Mr. and Mrs. Riley Jones last night to meet Miss lean Graham, concert pianist, who performed in Blytheville under the auspices of the Civic Music Association.
