Not Recluse or Back-slapper Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller will offer an innovation later this month when for all practical purposes Jones- bbro will become the aeat of State . government. On June 21 and 22, Governor Rockefeller and heads of practically all departments will headquarter in Jonesboro. During that time, those citizens who have specific problems to dis- . cuss will be invited to arrange appointments with the proper departmental heads (or their staff members). Governor Rockefeller plans to spend the first of his two days in Northeast Arkansas visiting various state institutions. Tliis may take him into Missis- iippi and one or two other Northeast Arkansas counties. After the Jonesboro date, similar visits will be made to Hope (June 27) and Fayetteville (early July). Event' ually, he will bring the principal com- 'ponents of the state administration in. to all sections of the state. Whether any great or lasting contribution to state government will be made as a result of this mobility ia & matter of conjecture. Certainly it should serve to put all segments of the) administration (including, of course, the Governor himself) into close touch with many facets of state government. As a purely political venture, it has much to commend it. First, it will help dispel the notion that the Governor is inaccessible and aloof. We would venture the opinion that any governor whose office door was open much of the time to many of the people would be hard put to devote sufficient time and thought to problems of state government. Eminently preferable is a friendly, but hard-working governor . . . neither recluse nor perpetual backslapper and barbecue speaker. It's a rather difficult balance to achieve. There are those who wonder if Gover- or Rockefeller is inclined to do it. JLetteM IJo Uhe C<ait( (letters to the editor are welcomed. Ih« are •sSfrt to edltloe. however, mil mult be sljnec.

Medicare has been the cause of many insurance companies cancelling hospital insurance, under which the patient has had good coverage for years. As a result of this, it is now necessary for the patient to pay $40 when entering the hospital, whereas before he only had to show proof of hospital insurance. . Because of medicare, hospital fees have almost doubled and the charge for rooms has or been upped $5, $10 and $15 per day. Since the arrival of medicare, patients must pay doctors for X-rays and lab tests that heretofore were a part of the hospital bill and were paid by the insurance. Now that we have medicare, the old and ailing patient must pay the doctor $15 to get admitted to the hospital. Medicare is just another burden added to the ones that the aged have to bear. Most of them are retired and are trying to exist on retirement incomes which are very limited.

He said: "Let us resolve to begin here tonight a political moratorium to end fighting among ourselves ... for seven months I'm calling upon all Democrats to cease and desist from all fighting, which has recently, I think, damaged the Democratic Party . . . There have been too many individuals within our party publicly villifying each other through the press and other media .. . This has only served the opposition party . . . Democrats and Independents are tired of seeing us act, in some instances, like children." It's hardly a secret that the Republican Party in Arkansas has been making terrific gains ... and more effective gains in the past few months of Democratic Party strug- . gle for recognition. The infighting for power and control of the Democratic Party in Arkansas has come close to rippnig it apart at the seams . . . —Advance MonticeUonian. Adding A Hazard : Arkansas' Game & Fish Commission,. already in hot water with many sportsmen, will not endear themselves to others with a recent change. The commissioners, so far beyond the reach of their critics, have lifted a ban on motors over 10 horsepower for use on Game i Fish lakes.

At 66, Melvyn Douglas can look back — and, happily, ahead. The part he was playing lent itself to such diversified Introspection. He. was taping a CBS Playhouse production called "Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night" (and let's hope cooler title-writers will prevail) which will be telecast next fall. In it, Douglas plays an old man who wonders what, if anything, is left for him. ' "I have no sympathy for the character I play," Douglas says. "He's an old man who . is dependent on his children. I'd cut my throat before I'd be in that position. I had to support my own parents from the time I was in my 20s, and I vowed it would never happen to Ing after a hard night. 1 fee] drunk, dirty and imperfect.' "And then, a few yeari ago, I didn't want to be active at all. I had had a serious operation. But I found I got restless and I wanted to do things that interested me. There aren't too many such things, however. But keeping busy keeps me feeling young." And he was looking ahead— "I'm not afraid of dying. But I feel I will regret it — there are too many things to see and do it yet. I envy the wonderful things my children and grandchildren will see." Irving Wallace's just • pub- ished "The Plot" is a big look. 20th Century-Fox bought t — together with Wallace's next two — before a word was written. They got a b a r g a i n. 'The Plot" has enough plot in it for four movies, three short subjects and a couple of television series. The Wallace-Fox deal is an in- 'cresting one. It followed quick- y on the heels of the author's announced pact with hjs .pub- ishers. for three books for more lhan $1 million.

Hal made little ceremony about dummy play. He won the heart lead with his ace and put his ace of diamonds on the table. East showed out and West remarked, "If I'd known that you held both the ace and king of trumps I. would have doubled 'you." Hal looked over the hand for a second and replied, "Maybe you will be glad that you didn ; t." Then Hal proceeded to make his contract.

Reporting the mat ter, the chairman said there were 10 per cent adamantly in favor, 10 per cent violently op posed and 80 per cent confused. Markus Earth, a theologian and author, spent last summer as a guest professor at an East Zone Germany university. He believes that 5 per cent of the students are committed Commu nists, 5 per cent are devout Christians and the remainder are skeptical, apathetic «r even nihilists. A few weeks ago I spoke at a Canadian university and was asked about American debates with reference to the Vietna mese policies. What would you hazard as the statistics? How many of us are hawks? How many are doves? Hew many are confused? These statistics may be gen eralizations but they do indicate the large number of the uncom mitted. This is the meaningless ness that leads to vandalism » mong young people and lawless ness among their ciders. Since thli Is true, here art a few IUB school or the numerous ser ice clubs as they confront the issues of the moment: Most of us have yet to lear the art of dialogue. The trouble with so many discussions in homes, schools and clubs is that they become personal. A debate about Vietnam upsets the bridge club. Political discussions dis concert the hostess. A school bussing issue can cause people to go home in a tantrum. So the issues are dodged. Dialogue de mands the art of listening as well as speaking, and of listen ing to people whose dress, hab its and attitudes may be extra ordinarily different than our own. Most of us have yet to learn the need to be needed. The o pinions of the great uncommit ted numbers become important as they try to risk them beyond the provincial areas of their daily schedule. In the mush rooming population situation wa have more and more people who feel cut off, rootless and lonesome. There is no one to speak a friendly word or t* lis ten to a point of view. These peo. pie need to know that someone dcei car* and that there are places where their opinions can be expressed. This is the seed bed out of which a democratic society makes up its mind. Most still have to learn to put our values into words. Call it "to verbalize" or "to articu late," it still means that we need to face up to what it is that gets our time and our money, our energy and our concern. Once we have discovered our faith—or our unfaith— we have come to the place where we can grow. It is then that we change the statistics. Fox has already assigned David Weisbart to produce "The Plot." And Weisbart has called Wallace — "They usually do" — to sound him out on casting deas. At the moment, it could be Gregory Peck and either Orson Welles or Peter Ustinov in the two key male roles.
